Smallville vid rec  
So on a MUCH cheerier note, if you haven't already seen obsessive24's Smallville vid Change (in the house of flies) then you should do yourselves a holiday favour and go download NOW! It's subtle and complex and awesome, tracing the evolution of Clark and Lex into their future identities. And it captured this little meta-girl's heart with its many juxtaposed parallel images of Clark and Lex as they evolve. It's a fierce and powerful vid that left me gasping, and I'd encourage even those not familiar with Smallville canon to check it out, because it builds its own narrative very powerfully.

I'd be more coherent but I've just returned from tramping across Melbourne in an 'Amazing Race' style work Christmas Party excursion. And yes it is still 35 degrees and smoky, thanks for asking! :-) ::stabs crazy work::

That vid is brilliant! Nicky posted it on FF yesterday and I was blown away by it.
I'm also a big fan od hers, "And - Kiss Me" (We/Fred) vid kicks ass, I'm definitely reccing if you haven't seen it yet. :)

Oh, I don't think I've seen that one. Will have to check it out because I've seen several of her vids and they're awesome!

Thank you for reccing this! I normally don't like how vids turn out but this one was A-MAZ-ING.

You're welcome! :-) I'm a vid junkie, so I can hack watching even pretty clunky vids, but this one is a standout of the year, for sure!

You should point me to some more of your favorites (or if you've done that before in a post I can hunt that down), and you were making some of your own too, weren't you?

Well actually I was planning to do some vid recs for Christmas/New Year! :-)
My previous vid recs are here, but I've found a score of great vids since then.

With Smallville, three of my favourite vids are Drop Dead Gorgeous (for fun squee), Running up that Hill (for heartbreak) and Dont cha (for its sexy crack AU-ness).

If there's any particular fandom/character/style/music etc. you like and would be curious seeing a vid of, let me know and I'll see if I can rec something appropriate. :-)

And yes, I am trying to vid myself. Sigh. It's hard! There's a Clex vid in the works.

As someone was MIA with links yesterday, I jumped in yesterday afternoon and found that vid -- I about died when I saw it. I must have watched it ten times in a row. I used for the first time :-)

Aw, cool! And yes, it is absolutely drop dead amazing. My heart skipped a beat when I saw obsessive24 had done an SV vid! She's one of the most amazing vidders I've seen.

You know I don't normally like videos (not even the ones on MTV) but that was really good, thats some serious skill there, and it was nice to see all the parallels between Clark and Lex, nicely done!
