Vid recs  
Before I got hijacked by my own squee about bananainpyjamas's Break, I was going to rec her Matrix vid. My Own Summer, a Neo character study through all three movies, is a magnificent achievement. I'm in awe of her action vid construction--completely masterful and awesome eyecandy. I downloaded the glorious large version--it's seriously spectacular stuff!

bradcpu's Vertigo is a Season 2 House vid that I really admire. It's uncomfortable and trippy viewing, which is true to the season, my favourite season so far. I don't often talk about House, but I've had a lot of issues with Season 3. This was a welcome reminder of its strengths back in Season 2. The vid gets better and better on rewatching, though I felt more than a little strung out after watching it three times in a row! ;-)

Another vid coming out of the Reverie Style Contest is Precious by Xandra, a Dexter vid. Dexter's another show I don't often talk about but which I enjoyed. I've found that people have very different takes on Dex's character, so this vid may not be for everyone, but I found it very powerful.

While we're on Dexter, I've been meaning to rec chasarumba's Keep Breathing, a Deb character study. Deb is my favourite character on Dexter, my way 'in' to the Dexter universe, as I find Dex himself difficult to say the least. I adore Deb in all her brittle gawky awkwardness and vulnerability, and this vid is a beautiful tribute to her.

Exploring Xandra's imeem page after watching 'Precious', I found her Twin Peaks vid, Angel. It brought back all the creepy horror of that show (and it helped that it was made to one of my favourite Massive Attack tracks). If you are in the mood for some nostalgic creepiness, I definitely recommend it.

In time for the Heroes finale, obsessive24 has made a spectacular and playful Sylar character study: One of a kind. With spoilers up to 1.18, it features some of the best moments from our favourite brain-eating psychopath. Tip: watch out for the line 'two of a kind, and no-one home'! ;-)

And finally, for my BSG peeps, m_a_r_i_k_s has been reuploading her Lee and Kara vids, which I've been thoroughly enjoying. I particularly recommend Don't Mess With Me for it's Lee point-of-view.

OMG thanks for all the recs! Twin Peaks and The Matrix? Super cool. You just pointed me towards a bunch of vidders I've never seen before for multiple fandoms. Awesomeness.

Cool! That's always good to hear. *g* I adored The Matrix, and went through a huge Twin Peaks phase back in the day... so glad to have been able to pass on the squee!

Yay, Lee vids! I really liked Don't Mess With Me and left squeeful comments with the vidder. Thanks!

Awesome! She's really nice and definitely 'gets' Lee. I thought you might like that vid--it's most definitely an 'inside view' of Kara/Lee from Lee's perspective.

Ohh, yay! I'm so glad--Brad's one of my favourite vidders. His 'Living Dead Girl' vid for Faith from BtVS is one of my favourite vids ever. *g*
