Last week's vid recs  
So, Wednesday vid recs lapsed pretty fast thanks to probable swine flu (the government won't pay for tests any more so can't know for sure but probable since I caught it at an infected location). Here's what I was going to rec last week.

Some favourites from the end of last year...

mranderson71's Goodbye Mr A (The Matrix), which was on near-constant cycle at my house during a particularly bad period of my worklife, due to its uncanny ability to make me happy-clap senselessly like an infant for reasons I still can't completely explain. There should be more humour in vidding. And it should look like this.

chasarumba's Skin, a Casino Royale vid, as slick as Bond himself. Hypnotically compelling editing, and the perfect way to relive the movie and all it's beautiful framing of the male body scenery.

milly's remastered release of Counting Bodies (Angel/Connor/Darla vid) originally released in 2005. It's just breathtaking. I used to get hate texts in ad breaks from RL friends for being a Connor fan, but I remain unapologetic. He still has the power to break my heart and Milly's definitive and huanting vid takes me back to that place I lived in emotionally when the arc originally aired.

And some recent faves...

charmax's Marvellous Party. Put on your best toff-y accent and chink glasses, dah-lings, for this multifandom period drama debauchery!

For those with an open enough mind to embrace Clana, do not miss netlynn's One Moment More, which captures the nostalgic purity of their romance movingly.

Mmm, vid recs. I've downloaded One Moment More and Counting Bodies (love that song) but the Mr Anderson vid was apparently deleted from Vimeo in March?

Oh, that's a tragedy. I'll go ask if it's anywhere else.

Thank you! I think I'm already on the mend.

Bleh! That's scary! Hope you feel better soon!

Thanks! It's not that scary, more inevitable, given I live where it first broke out in Aus.

Oh no! My sympathies on being sick. I hope you feel better soon. You're the second Australian person on my friendslist to report that you have the flu.

Yeah, we're rife with it! Especially Melbourne. :( It's our winter here, of course, so I think that could be part of why we're clocking high infection rates compared to the Northern Hemisphere?

Oh no! I just saw this. Hope you are recovering quickly? (And, er, no rush on answering my email, probably goes without saying.) Take care. <3

Thanks again for the recs, particularly netlynn's One Moment More. I'm no shipper, but I found it incredibly moving.

It's lovely, isn't it?! Definitely one of those pieces that can be appreciated without being a full-on shipper. You can see the love poured into it.

Sorry to hear you're sick, but I see from your comments that you are doing better already. Excellent. Get well soon!

Must check out that Bond vid for sure. Yum.

Ah, lovely icon!

I thought you might appreciate that one!

Loved that Marvelous Party vid.

I'm glad you watched net's Clana vid. I agree, she did a really wonderful job.

Hee, it's a fun one! Net's vid is beautiful. It has such heart and soul--I always appreciate that in vids.
Charmaxcharmax on July 21st, 2009 08:33 am (UTC)
Thanks again for the inclusion! I have seen and enjoyed all but one of these vids. Although I'm sure it's very good I'm not into Smallville so I don't think I'll get much out of the Clana vid.

Yeah, fair enough! That was one for my SV peeps. ;) This week I'm going to rec small fandom vids, so hopefully I'll stumble on one you haven't seen yet but are interested in.

Don't let the swine grind you down!

And oh, a Connor vid! After my recent rewatch I've been wanting to find Connor fanworks, for I love him so much. He is indeed absolutely heartbreaking. Thank you for reccing that!

Hee hee! Swine will be defeated!

CONNOR!!! I think I might have to do a favourite characters post some time soon. I feel the need to nostalgia-fest about my all-time faves, and he sure is one. Why do I not have a Connor icon? This is a TRAGEDY I must remedy.

Thank you so much for including me in your rec post, I really do appreciate it.

I hope you're starting to feel better now, it looks like I'm behind a few days. :-(

I wanted to see the Matrix vid but it wasn't available any longer. Will you let me know if you have a new link to see it?

Thank you again, for everything.

Thanks--I am mending but not as fast as I would like!

I will nudge the vidder re. the Matrix vid--it's so much fun! I was sad to hear it was down.

You're welcome! *hugs* (What a pretty Clark!)

The Matrix vid is back up, at least on YouTube (link at original post).
