I'll post a more extensive Dear Festividder letter later, but I'm super squee-ful about festivids sign-ups.

If you've ever considered [community profile] festivids, you should give it a shot! It has been a source of major joy on both the giving and receiving ends for several years, and one of my favorite fannish things in general.

What I'm Requesting )

Discovered the Avengers, Fave fics so far, Comics I am now going to read, and Fave vids so far )

Developed a ridiculous crush on Tom Hiddleston )

Discovered tumblr, and Moved recs over to Pinboard )

I'm also happily working on my fandom_helps projects, a J2 AU podfic for dei and a Lee Adama is Awesome vid for someone, and I'm crazy excited about Wincon this fall. I'm so happy y'all--I haven't been this pumped about fandom in years <3

[community profile] festivids reveals are up! I made two vids this year Express Yourself and Little Bad Girl.

Festivids reveals always make me feel kinda like Willow: I knew it! I knew it! Well, not 'knew it' in the sense of having the slightest idea, but I knew there was something I didn't know.

I hadn't guessed my matched vidder, but this year I was pretty damn sure who my treater was. Who else knows me that well and is awesome enough to create such a delightful vid? THANK YOU DEI, I <3 YOU FOREVER AND EVERS!!!

My podbang for deepforestowl is HERE! I read the Scholomance series by [personal profile] astolat, which was a delight. Very happy to share it now that it's posted :D

And I got a giftie! twilight_angel recorded one of my favorite J2's HERE.

There are also dozens of other awesome podfics being posted as part of podbang (I snagged almost all of the J2, SGA, and Sherlock ones), so I will have plenty of listening material for the next while. Woohoo for podfic exchanges!

So I definitely have limitations as a vidder. I can do humor, I can do smut, I can do action (I can do crack!smut!action...) but not so much with the thinky thoughts or the big feelings. I get vid bunnies for sad, deep songs but they never make it past storyboarding for me.

But you know who rocks the fuck out at vidding Deep Winchester Emotions? Loki! So I was thrilled to no end to win her at the last sweet charity round. Behold her neverending talent: How Low by [ profile] secretlytodream

Firstly, YAYYY for Supernatural being renewed for season six!

And more importantly, OMG this vid is amazing and made of win. What a perfect celebration of fandom joy! I think [ profile] deirdre_c has some of the best comic timing I've ever seen in vidding fandom. I fangirl her so hard <333333333

So now I know why Jared was even HUGER than normal ("I want him now. He's larger") in that last episode: he was trying out for the new Conan!

And, while I want for both Jensen and Jared to be truly successful in their careers, I'm really kind of glad he didn't get it. Maybe Jared would have brought a new depth of emotion to the character, but more likely it seems like he would be typecast as the big beefy guy.

Other reason why I'm glad Jared didn't get it? BECAUSE JASON MOMOA DID.

Holy shit, you guys, I can't even express how excited I am about this--both for Jason, because I miss the guy and I'm sure he needs work, and for the awesomeness this lends to the movie.

Seriously, Jason MF Momoa is just about perfect for this role. I can't wait.

I think a picspam and vidspam might be in order, y/y )

*happy sigh*

I'll be in my bunk.

[ profile] festivids is live, the masterlist is here, and my gift vidder made me the most amazingly dancey and PERFECT Neverending Story vid.

I'm gonna go watch all the other amaaaaaaaazing vids now and I'll be back later with recs galore!

And in case you are wondering what all the fuss is about, or whether watching vids from obscure fandoms is worth your time, an enthusiastic and articulate explanation of why is totally relevant to your interests.

[ profile] festivids video submitted!

*happy dancing and merriment*

Go and watch it! FIREFLIES by [ profile] talitha78. It is the cutest frakking thing on the planet and it will make your face and your heart explode with glee and awwwwww!

I hope everyone is having good holidays! I got the best vidding present ever: a shiny new 1 TB external hard drive, wheeeeeeeee!!! No more worrying about not having enough space for eps/clips for at least a few more months/fandoms :D

You guys, I'm so excited! I haven't gotten my assignment yet (and I am most certainly NOT compulsively checking my email to see if it has magically shown up in the least two minutes...) but I'll have it by Friday at the latest.

In the meantime, I've been listening through my iPod and floating ideas for all eight of the fandoms/sources that I offered. I've got at three to nine song ideas for each fandom now!!!

This has been such an awesome mental exercise for me as a vidder. I normally listen to music with my mental-visual filter firmly in place for the fandoms I have vidded for/plan to vid for (BSG, SPN, Buffy-verse, SGA, and Dollhouse). It has been unexpectedly liberating AND exciting to float through all of my music with eight new fandoms in mind. I know I'll narrow it down to one fandom once I get my assignment, but now I'm really excited about all the possibilities for new vids. Particularly the ideas I've had for movie vids, because the source footage is short enough that I could make ALL of those vid bunnies if my energy/muse/time all balances out.

I'm just crazy excited to be this excited about vidding again. I've had a slump for the last couple of months where several bunnies have been bumping around in my head and none of them have quite had the urgency/juice to make it to a completed product.

[ profile] festivids fucking rocks my muse so far!!!

ETA: I have my assignment and it is aaaaaaaawesome! *FLAIL*

OMFG how awesome was that episode! )

Vivid Con rec list so far--mostly Club Vivid because that's where my vidding heart lies )

And a few other recent vid gems )

There is also the matter of my inexpressible SQUEE to discover that Acceptable in the Eighties was played at Club Vivid this year. That pretty much made my decade :)
boomqueen: (Default)
I have seen four or five Club Vivid ones so far, but I still need some time to absorb and roll around in the awesomeness before I start making rec lists.

So many shiny vids, all lined up in a row, waiting to break my brain with glee )
