Vid: Java Jive  
Title: Java Jive (by Ink Spots)
Fandom: Smallville
Description: a tribute to the Smallville characters' caffeine addictions
Download: direct download (19 MB) or Blip
Credits: Thank you to radioreverie for providing the perfect song for my concept, and to brokenmnemonic for invaluable beta critiques.
Notes: Umm, I started this when I was in caffeine withdrawal. I think that explains... everything. :D
Lyrics:

I love coffee, I love tea
I love the java jive and it loves me
Coffee and tea and the jivin' and me
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup!

I love java, sweet and hot
Whoops! Mr. Moto, IUm a coffee pot
Shoot me the pot and IUll pour me a shot
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup!

Oh, slip me a slug from the wonderful mug
And I cut a rug till I'm snug in a jug
A slice of onion and a raw one, draw one.
Waiter, waiter, percolator!

I love coffee, I love tea
I love the java jive and it loves me
Coffee and tea and the jivin and me
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup!

Boston bean, soy bean
Lima bean, string bean.
You know that I'm not keen for a bean
Unless it is a cheery coffee bean.

I love coffee, I love tea
I love the java jive and it loves me
Coffee and tea and the jivinU and me
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup!

I love coffee, I love tea
I love the java jive and it loves me
Coffee and tea and the jivin' and me
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup

Hehee, thanks! I am endlessly amused by how much coffee those guys consume.

Oh, Bop what a sweet old-timey vid. Your vids always give a feeling of time.
These people drink a lot of beverages! I like when Clark x-rays the coffee. And the cutest? Lex with whipped cream on his nose. Clark and Lex were so dating once. Very cute vid.

A feeling of time, huh?! I guess that's good?

I like when Clark x-rays the coffee.
He was very cute when he was dating that chick (Alicia).

And the cutest? Lex with whipped cream on his nose. Clark and Lex were so dating once.
Haha! Yes indeed they were. :D I'm amused that you see it too now! ;)

Ha! Delightful, de-lovely and above all delicious. Have to go and put the kettle on now :-)

Hee! Thank you. :) Needless to say, I'm back on caffeine myself now.
Heather: Clark and Coffee Miss Tressmiss_tress on January 27th, 2008 06:18 pm (UTC)
Wonderful! I've often wondered how many cups of coffee our characters have had on screen and your vid reminds me that the answer would be LOTS!
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Sally Sparrow coffeebop_radar on January 27th, 2008 10:48 pm (UTC)
Hahaa, yes indeed!
hp5angst: smile chlarkhp5angst on January 27th, 2008 08:26 pm (UTC)
That was lovely. I like how it was b&w it definately set the atmosphere for the vid. Wow you used clips that most vidders seem to forget about, so it was nice to see the 'underplayed' clips. This really did have me feel good inside- I guess The Talon does that to me lol.

But my gawd, for teens that is way too much caffeine!
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Ameliebop_radar on January 27th, 2008 10:50 pm (UTC)
Thank you! It was definitely fun to be able to use unusual clips, and I'm glad it worked as a feelgood vid for you.

I think it's too much coffee for ANYone! LOL.
svgurl: clois thing called lovesvgurl on January 28th, 2008 01:01 am (UTC)
Such a cute video! I love the song and it made me laugh to see how much coffee that they really consume. LOL! I love it! The clips were perfect and the song was hilarious.

Thanks for making this and sharing it with us!
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Clois Crimsonbop_radar on January 28th, 2008 01:25 am (UTC)
Oh yay! I'm so glad you found it amusing--I giggled a lot making it. I know it was a little bit out there. ;)
Talitha: starrylites watermelon smileytalitha78 on January 28th, 2008 01:15 am (UTC)
What a fun vid! And, wow, I am so impressed by all of the work you must have put in to find those coffee clips. There're scads of them. :D
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Bop_radar TWbop_radar on January 28th, 2008 01:23 am (UTC)
Hee! Thank you! And yeah, I must have been truly obsessed... ;)
I was going to come to you for a beta, but at a certain point I decided that i'd already spent waaaay more time on this coffee vid than was sane!

This was the most charming video ever! And you did such a fantastic job picking the best coffee/tea clips too. The Lois ones in the Talon cracked me up, of course. And this is so timely - I just read a bit from a recent interview with KK where she mentions how addicted to coffee they all are.
I'm a huge coffee addict, so I really do heart this vid to pieces. I love how you wrapped it up with Lois and Lana in the Talon too - the coffeeshop girls! Hee!
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Lois searchingbop_radar on January 28th, 2008 10:24 am (UTC)
Aww, thank you, Rene! I'm chuffed you liked it. They really do drink gallons of coffee--it always makes me laugh. And yes, as I was vidding, the vid became more and more (obliquely) focused on Lana and Lois--not only are they around coffee more than anyone else, but they drink more than anyone else on camera too. So it felt fitting to have them frame it.
latteaddict: We are not frakkinglatteaddict on January 28th, 2008 11:40 am (UTC)
omg, that was so awesome! You have such a fantastic imagination for vidding and the black and white was a stroke of genius.

and COFFEE!!! :P
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Batgirlbop_radar on January 29th, 2008 01:55 am (UTC)
Hee! Glad you enjoyed it. I felt like I was making it for myself since I really wasn't sure ANYone but me would want to watch a vid about coffee, LOL.

I can't get this to play for me! *stressed*
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!bop_radar on January 29th, 2008 01:52 am (UTC)
Oh noes! Did you download it from sendspace or try from stage6? If you downloaded from sendspace it is an .avi file which means you might need something like VLC media player to play it. Alternatively, it could be because you don't have divx installed--stage6 uses divx and you should be able to download and install the relevant component from their site quite easily (the website should alert you if you don't have it installed.

Umm, did that info help? *scratches head*

Very cute! I really like the section from 1:15 to 1:23, with all its matched motions and the cute Lois bookends.
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Clois Crimsonbop_radar on January 29th, 2008 07:16 am (UTC)
Oh thank you! It's always great to get feedback like that--I love knowing which bits work for people. :)

Ohh, thank you! I appreciate you taking the time to leave such a lovely comment. :)

Lois and Lana drinking while driving (cause that one really seals their out of control coffee addiction :-)
Ha, yes! It was fun to match the images up--those two are definitely streets ahead of everyone else in terms of coffee consumption. :)

I'm glad it was a fun watch!
counteragent: vid freecounteragent on January 30th, 2008 04:31 am (UTC)
Oh, this is just so soothing. I will play it on repeat while I go through my current "no caffiene" phase. It will ease the pain.

Great choice on the b/w.
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Sally Sparrow coffeebop_radar on January 30th, 2008 07:49 am (UTC)
Ohh, you're another one trying caffeine free? I did really well for ages, but caved to work pressure in the end. I'm not sure if the vid helped or hindered, but glad you liked it and good luck! ;)

Oh my goodness that's a lot of coffee, hee.

Very sweet, very fun vid. The black and white was such a neat touch. Very soothing, very much in tone with the music. And you paid such lovely attention to the movement--it really was a Java Jive. :)
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Clois hugbop_radar on January 31st, 2008 07:04 am (UTC)
Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it. Black and white is fun! Did you notice any of that clip juddering you spotted before? I'm curious because I tried to keep extra watch for it.
bradcpubradcpu on January 30th, 2008 03:59 pm (UTC)
That was so fun! You can really tell how much fun you had editing it, and there were some very clever lyric ties in there. ;)

You know, I've never seen Smallville, but based on your vid I'd say that Clark isn't an alien... he's just had a few too many cups of coffee. I could probably shoot heat rays from my eyes after about 60 cups.
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Clark identity crisisbop_radar on January 31st, 2008 07:03 am (UTC)
Aww, thank you! I'm glad you found it fun--it was one of those 'will anyone actually watch this?' projects. ;)

I could probably shoot heat rays from my eyes after about 60 cups.
And hit superspeed after only 30, right? ;)

Clark went through this (long) period of making up lame excuses for his mysterious actions ('surge of adrenalin' was a classic). I have no clue why he didn't just say he was over-caffeinated. Clearly everyone would have believed him!
Nora Norwich: Lexana big hugnorwich36 on January 30th, 2008 05:43 pm (UTC)
Oh, I had forgotten you posted this until it was linked in the ledger. What a fun vid! I find myself with a sudden caffeine craving now. I love the black-and-white, and your clip choices--wow, those SV folks are all really coffee addicts, aren't they? And it's interesting how much relationship building in the show centers around coffee.
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Heroes Clairebop_radar on January 31st, 2008 07:01 am (UTC)
Hee! It gave me cravings too--and that was not of the good, given I was trying to cut down. ;)

Truly! I'm very cuted out by you finding the meta take on my vid. ;)
A work in progress: Tea Austen (Emma)ancarett on January 30th, 2008 06:03 pm (UTC)
Here from the ledger's link -- what a joyful and playful little vid! Perfect pacing (especially with the refrain and your fast cuts to all those different characters with their caffeine fixes)!
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Sally Sparrow coffeebop_radar on January 31st, 2008 07:00 am (UTC)
Oh, thank you! I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed it. :)
Billie Bones: Iconicliteraryll on January 31st, 2008 06:21 pm (UTC)
This was delightful and charming and made me smile ear to ear all the way through all 3 times I watched it. It has a very nice sense of pace and matches the song perfectly and I especially love the way you ended it with the machine catching on fire and then Lana and Lois.

Just ♥ ♥ ♥, Bop.
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Lana :Dbop_radar on February 9th, 2008 10:36 am (UTC)
Thanks, hon! :D :D :D Glad you like the ending--it's one of my favourite bits.
Enderenderwiggin24 on February 10th, 2008 12:17 pm (UTC)
damn, now you make me want to have some coffee, so i even dont drink coffee much!
( i am purely addicted to greentea)
but wow for smallville, i will go for coffee :D

Hee! You could pretend it was tea they were drinking?!

That's really fun, and the B&W adds just the right touch to it, somehow.

Much, much <333333 for this vid! And I'll probably be singing the song for a week! :D

(Even if caffeine withdrawal prompts you to creativity like this, I wouldn't wish the deprivation on anyone! *shudders* From one coffee lover to another, I hope you won't have to go without again!)

This was such an enjoyable vid and you did a great job editing/matching to the music. You can really tell from your vids that you love the characters.

I saw this recced and I couldn't believe that I had missed it when you posted it. It makes me worry about how much other things I miss on LJ.
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: TW smilebop_radar on February 19th, 2008 10:34 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I'm particularly thrilled to hear my fondness for the characters comes through. :D

I know what you mean about missing stuff though... I try to keep up but there's always things I see rec'd later that I missed.
fotw_svfotw_sv on November 28th, 2008 04:40 pm (UTC)
Wow! I've discovered you videos and now seeing how creative you are, I can't imagine how long it took you to find every hot beverage clip in SV history! This was great! Very entertaining and my eyes popped when I saw my other sweetie Jensen in one clip! I really enjoyed this.
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Sally Sparrow coffeebop_radar on November 28th, 2008 10:59 pm (UTC)
Hee! The funny thing is this ISN'T even every shot! I actually ditched some, and there've been lots more since. ;) I tried to work in as many different characters as possible though and I had a soft spot for Season 4's Jason, so he had to be there!
