Vid: Shove It  
Title: Shove It
Fandom: The Good Wife
Artist: Santogold
Description: Kalinda > everyone
For: [profile] m_a_r_i_k_s. I hope you feel better soon, sweetie! It's not quite Kalinda v. Eli (you know I suck at AU) but I did my best to show her PWNing everyone else. It was soooo hard. :p
Access vid: download mp4 (44 MB) or watch at YouTube
Thanks: to [profile] brokenmnemonicfor cheerleading, and [personal profile] supacat for last-minute checks
Notes: I couldn't find ANY gen vids for Kalinda on YouTube. That is a TRAVESTY and needed remedied. I ship Kalinda/Kalinda, which is hopefully what comes through in this vid. She is a blast to vid. I made this swiftly and without too much overthinking, which made it massively good fun for me. :)
Lyrics:
Brooklyn we go hard
We on the look for the advantage, we work hard
And if we seem to rough it up a bit
We broke but we rich at heart
Pull ourselves up now we won't choke
It's our time, put the lights on us

War tactics they make me sick
reel your heart in run away with it
Smile in your face, undermine your back
got guns for the strength they lack
So if you know another way
you can't look the other way
if you know another way,
tell them so right to their face

We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine (4x)

I pay for what's called
eccentricity and my will to evolve
I hear them all say
that I got heart
but not everything that it takes

Taint my mind but not my soul
Tell you I got fire
I wont sell it for no payroll
Let 'em hold me down
I know if I know another way
I can't look the other way
I know another way
I'll tell them so right to their face

We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine (4x)

Oh, I'm so glad you posted this before I left work for the weekend, so I don't have to wait until Monday to watch it. This was AWESOME and definitely showcased the amazingness that is Kalinda. And great song choice, too.

(I can definitely see shipping Kalinda/Kalinda, but this vid also reminded me she has sexual chemistry with EVERYBODY.)

Hee! Yay, posting on a quiet day paid off for someone! :) I am really impatient when it comes to posting vids. ;)

You're right about her having chemistry with everyone! I think if Kalinda seriously pursued someone I'd be on board in a flash, but I love her independence a lot too.

*fans self* OMG the awesome!!! the hotness!!!

*rewatches*

Love the sense of rhythm and movement, the way small motion of items, hands are answered by another motion in the next picture; and all the awesome gazes movement and expressions that Kalinda is so awesome with ♥
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Kalindabop_radar on November 6th, 2010 09:09 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I am really glad the small motions worked for you! I am a sucker for that stuff myself and Kalinda can do so much with just her eyes or one small movement, it felt right to use that.

No one has ever made a vid for me, K! You realise what it means? I'm the lucky one to have received what is probably the first Kalinda(!) vid ever made... something to cling to when I feel as shitty as I did this morning. You rock! To have such vid as the afternoon greeting? It's amazing! So kind of you to have thought of me like this. It was really unexpected in the best way possible. *HUGS*

Ok, I'll do my best to avoid overusing AWESOME. The vid is funny, sexy, heartfelt and smart all at once. This is Kalinda, right? :)

I like the cyclic turn you picked as the overall arc - her response to Blake and the whole world. Don't mess with The Boots, guys! I don't know how you found the song, but it's so fitting, it makes it hard for me to suppress squeeing noises every time I rewatch. *grins*

I _love her body language (you highlight it wonderfully: soon you're gonna have to spill where you acquired such a keen sense of music) and she does absolutely devilish things with her eyes. So many of these scenes are built on pure eye contact. The woman could be mute for all I know - and still make her point better than a good many of people.

Riiight. My favourite moments? All of them?

0:33-0:34 - Great catch! Creates a very organic sense of movement from one shot to another, one moment in time - to the next. Brings out the attitude too!

0:49 - LOL. Love his reaction.

1:07-1:11 - Will's so struck by Kalinda's professionalism and evil he gets a little bit dizzy. And we share the sentiment :) Bravo!

1:32-1:1:47 - Peter's facial expressions are priceless, and so is his attorney's. Yes, we all think we're in love. ;)

1:48-1:54 - Again, I feast on your movement choices. Thank you! She makes the world revolve around her without making any substantial efforts.

I'd also point out some things about the differences in her interactions with certain people, but I'm just eager to make a post in my LJ. Can I rec the vid, please? I hope you don't mind, I'll just rush off and do it ASAP. Gotta share the awesome.

Thank you so much, sweetheart! I feel like I hardly deserve it, but you made my day.

I am glad it came at a time to cheer you up! :) I searched for vids for her but only found shipper vids... her and Cary, her and the FBI chick... I can understand why people made those but I think there needs to be one about Kalinda just on her own, you know? :)

I don't know how you found the song, but it's so fitting
Hee! I'd liked it for a while (I like the artist, Santogold) but the song always made NO SENSE to me until I connected it with Kalinda. ;)

she does absolutely devilish things with her eyes. So many of these scenes are built on pure eye contact. The woman could be mute for all I know - and still make her point better than a good many of people
I know! Here eyes are amaaaazing! :) She reminds me very much of my dance teacher, who is obviously trained to use her eyes as part of dance, but wow, the storytelling she does with them is incredible!

Oh, I'm so glad you liked the Will section. :) That part was so fun to make. I love that scene and both their expressions were priceless. It was just such a perfect example of people being unable not to acknowledge her brilliance.

Thank you so much for the rec! :) Yay yay YAY that you love it! \o/

gorgeous, gorgeous vid. Kalinda/Kalinda comes through brilliantly.

Thank you! So glad! :) (Damon would love her!)
Dualbunnydualbunny on November 7th, 2010 04:35 pm (UTC)
Love it! I only knew her from that car scene, but, man, this vid has pushed me very close to the edge of checking the show out. I so don't have time to do that, but *this* close! XD

Loved all the reaction shots--especially how clear it was that no one was fully prepared to deal wit her. *g*
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Kalindabop_radar on November 7th, 2010 10:26 pm (UTC)
:D *clappy hands* Yay, it had recruiter power! (I totally understand about not having time but it's cool it made you want to check the show out!) And yeah, NO ONE is on her level, not even the Machiavellian politicians or the FBI chick. So glad that came through!
Enderenderwiggin24 on November 7th, 2010 09:40 pm (UTC)
ogosh, i knew kalinda was hot, but wow, you had her with basically everyone!!!
guhhhhhhhhhhhh, yes!!!
she is like a totally secret weapon, only like totally not secret, if one were to know to really look!!

its kinda funny, from all the cast of the show, I can identify with her and with Cary most :D
I am like a mixture of those two, hahahah!!

but of course, I adore and worship Eli most!!!
that man is priceless!!!

can i bribe you with anything (donations for OTW *G*) to vid him XD`??

Hee, I'm glad you enjoyed it so much! :D

I am like a mixture of those two, hahahah!!
I see that! :)

Eli is indeed priceless... Ohh, bribery seems so appropriate for Eli! Hee! I don't have a song idea for him but I will keep an ear out for one, for sure. :) Good to know there is interest!

This is so very awesome. Love it!
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Kalindabop_radar on November 11th, 2010 02:13 am (UTC)
Thank you! I'm thrilled you like it! :)
Isagelisagel on November 10th, 2010 11:14 am (UTC)
Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Kalinda! This is thoroughly awesome. (And also basically exactly one of my Festivids wishes, so it's like vidders' Christmas come early. *g*) I'm so excited you made this. :D
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Kalindabop_radar on November 11th, 2010 02:15 am (UTC)
Awww, cool!! I'm so glad it met a Festivids wish!! I hadn't even thought of that, though if I'd had more choices I would probably have wished for a Kalinda vid myself! \o/

look the other way
I think I'm going to have to start watching The Good Wife now because Kalinda looks FANATASTIC!
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Kalindabop_radar on January 17th, 2011 12:10 am (UTC)
Re: look the other way
Ohhh, you should, you SHOULD! It takes a while to warm up in Season 1 but Kalinda alone makes it worthwhile and actually there are several strong, complex women in the show. And there are HEAPs of murky, morally grey areas and personal compromises explored... it's interesting stuff! And Kalinda is one of my favourite characters ever!

Re: look the other way
I'm currently watching the 3rd episode actually. I started them immediately after watching the vid. I actually liked it right from the start. I've had a crush on Julianna Margulies since ER, so I latched onto the show like a hungry, angry baby.

Re: look the other way
Ahh, brilliant! Yeah, she's amazing! I had not really known her before but I adore her now, and the show gets better and better from there.
Allisonfrolicndetour on March 20th, 2011 07:42 pm (UTC)
This is fantastic! The Good Wife is currently the only TV I'm watching and Kalinda is, predictably, my favorite character. I didn't know if there was even a fandom for it, so I'm thrilled to find a vid that showcases her awesomeness like this does. <3
