Announcements! Polls! Recs!  
Revise, Wollongong, December 2010
Australian vidders and vid fans! Although we had to abandon plans for a formal Australian vidding convention this year, nushanakt has just announced details for Revise: The Art and Science of Contemporary Remix Cultures and we'd love to have an informal gathering of vidfolk there. Sing out if you are interested in attending and meeting up and we can organise some stuff around the conference. :)

Vidukon
If you haven't already heard, Vidukon is on the cards again in the northern hemisphere spring next year. A poll on dates and location and interest in helping organise over here.

Pilots Memorial/Revival Festival
Twitter results in some strange devlopments it seems... in a surprising (?!) turn of events, callmeonetrack, indigo419 and I are plotting some kind of Kara/Lee celebration/commemoration in the new year, probably around Feb 14 (pilots = love *g*). OK, I'm a bit foggy on dates (I wasn't in charge of that bit!), but stay tuned... Tara and Indi have it covered, I'm sure. :) Fics, vids, meta and squee will all be welcome but you'll have to answer to me if you so much as mention THAT FUCKING PIGEON.

I have pledged to make something for said festival... (IT'S WEIRD TO ME TOO! But they were very persuasive!) ... which brings me to the poll. I have recently, finally dug my BSG DVDs out of the closet of pain I shoved them into after the finale. And to my MASSIVE surprise, I actually have vids I want to make with them, but I am currently dithering about which to start with. Help!?

Which of the following should I make with the BSG DVDs?

Make the upbeat Kara/Lee vid
10(33.3%)
Make the epic, angsty Lee's-view-of-Kara vid (I will lol if anyone clicks this but am probably most likely to make it :p)
8(26.7%)
Make the sad/angry pilots vid about how we got left with pigeon shit
5(16.7%)
Remaster Middleman so it looks shinier
3(10.0%)
Remaster Southside so it looks shinier
0(0.0%)
Remaster Road Rage (lol: no one is going to tick this option! not even me!)
1(3.3%)
None of the above, you loser, no one cares about BSG any more, that is soooo 2007-08
0(0.0%)
Make something from a neeeeeew fandom, you idiot!
3(10.0%)



Recs
Where are the Friday Night Lights fans on my friendslist?! Get yourselves to this amazing, poignant and totally EPIC Songs for a Girl by jarrow. It's a Tyra/Landry vid in three movements, handling the nuances of their relationship--yes, even the part that made us think the show had jumped the shark--with exquisite restraint and delicacy. If you like the show and/or either of the characters AT ALL, watch it! Non-FNL-viewers: watch to see what you're missing. Some of the best vidding I've seen all year.

Also in my 'best vids of they year' category: absolutedestiny's Running Away, a gorgeous tribute to childhood imagination, friendship and shared dreams. The source is the movie 'Son of Rambow' but you do not need to have seen the movie to adore this. It is totally joyful.

Oh man I know exactly what you mean about twitter resulting in strange developments. Yay for Kara/Lee goodness :D

I LOVE angst so I had to vote #2!

Wow, that means #2 is polling best at the moment! I should screenshot that while it lasts. :p

*genuinely astonished*

And Twitter... is it always like that?! *blinks*

(Aww, look! I get to pull all my old BSG icons out of the closet too!)

I'm going to watch that Tyra/Landry vid today and let you know what I think of it :) Jarrow spoils us!

I was tempted to check 3 or 4 points in the poll, but I know you have to get your priorities straight ;)

K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Lee smilebop_radar on September 13th, 2010 11:29 pm (UTC)
He really does. :) (Psst, let him know too!)

I'm surprised how well the Lee-view-of-Kara vid is polling!
Mistress Spinmlsky on September 13th, 2010 03:42 pm (UTC)
Not sure you could make Middleman shinier, but I checked that one along with upbeat pilots. :D Just watched Middleman again the other day. It ranks as one of my all time faves. *hearts*

abed/troy, abed/troy.

not that I am opposed to pilot love because omg HOTTNESS times INFINITY.

but abed and troooooooooooooy need love too.

lollol look at me being out of step from everyone in your comments.

I have no Abed icon. I will have to fix this soon. Did I ever tell you I saw that actor do sketch comedy live? He's absolutely hilarious on his feet.
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Abed/Troybop_radar on September 13th, 2010 11:38 pm (UTC)
*brings the icon you need* I HEART THEM TOO, HONEY! But don't we still have ok-somewhat-temporarily-foiled plans to buy a vidder better than me for them?! I don't know about you but I still have dreams in that regard... Also I need a song. :p We should have some kind of official Community song lookout party!

You did tell me about the sketch comedy and I was VERY jealous and it made me wish I lived in the States. Again. (That happened a lot last month!)
brokenmnemonic: BSG - Leebrokenmnemonic on September 13th, 2010 08:08 pm (UTC)
I'm not qualified to speak on what you should or shouldn't vid, BSG-wise. For all the humour about vidding something else, I'm sure you will vid something from the show, whatever it is that grabs you.

Thank you for the vidlinks - I've already downloaded one, and I'll snag that Son of Rambow vid to watch now.

You are right--I am stubborn and I will do what I want, regardless of democratic appearances to the contrary. ;)

I think you will like 'Running Away' a lot.
Cosettecosetteferaud on September 13th, 2010 09:21 pm (UTC)
Oh, I am so happy to hear that you are going to vid K/L again, I can't believe it! :D :D And this LoveFest thing? Sounds wonderful!

And thanks for the Tyra/Landry vid rec! I love both individually and as a couple and this vid is fantastic!

I will be delighted if we can share some pilots joy together! I remember being sad that you only got into the show as I entered that dark abyss of rage about it. ;)

Oh YAY! I knew there were people on my friendslist who would like that vid! Isn't it gorgeous?!
indigo419: JB sheepish shirtless People magindigo419 on September 13th, 2010 11:30 pm (UTC)
Ahahahahaha!! So it wasn't a dream, after all! I did commit to committing pilot!fic!! (I'm sure wisteria_ is shaking her head now, wondering what's come over me when I've been AWOL on the fic front for so long now! *g* *hugs A*)

(I was wandering around, paging through my flist, when I came across your post: : Oh, hey, that looks like my username - wait, it IS my name!! And I said I would do something?? :P)

I think partly it was because QoT's been talking about pilots in her TV meme lately, and then for some reason I decided to watch one of Jo's vids, when I NEVER watch vids. (Slow computer.) And then I missed pilots all over again something fierce!

But really, I blame Tara! (j/k *smooches you both*)

Oh, and are you high? Make Middleman or Southside shinier? Not possible. They are perfectly perfect!!

(also, thank you for the Tyra/Landry vid rec, I am so so late to the FNL love but I love it like pie!!)

Ahahahahahaha! It was NOT a dream, no indeedy! (This is what happens when you have Australian friends that were entirely AWAKE during that conversation!) You totally committed! And so did I (well, to vid)... it was a WHOLE WEIRD THING.

I kinda blame Tara and her confessed Anders-grouchiness too. ;) &hearts

They are perfectly perfect!!
Oh, god, I love non-vidder vid viewers SO MUCH. *hugs you tight* Vidders would totally know it could be better, but I love that it's perfect in someone's mind. ;)

OMG you got into FNL!!! YAY!!! \o/ (Get thyself to that vid!)
