Thoughts on Halloween (2007)

Oooh, quote. That’s deep, maaaaan.
Good song. I guess with Rob Zombie at the helm, that much is guaranteed.

Uh, so the Myers are not a middle-class family then?
“Skull-fuck the shit out of you”?
Thank Christ these people are about to be murdered.
Can you flush a rat? Really?

I know we’re supposed to cheer on the serial killer in a “fun” way, but seriously, I can’t wait for him to start killing.
It will be for the greater good.

LINDERMAN.
With cool hair.
Speaking of hair, Michael has better hair than me. *le sigh tragique*
it gets better…

Vid: [The Mighty Ducks] November Rain – REMASTERED

8
Jul 2007

This vid has been remastered, using higher quality clips and editing the bits that I was never particularly happy with. Things have changed a little, and it is now one vid instead of two. See below for download details.

Vid Title: November Rain

Artist: Guns N’ Roses

Fandom: The Mighty Ducks

Clips from: D1, D2, D3 and Don’t Cry and November Rain by Guns N’ Roses

Summary: This is an AU vid, in which Casey and Bombay were married and Charlie is their son. This vid (or vids) deals with their break-up and Bombay’s self-destruction that follows it, not to mention Charlie’s reaction. See the Notes for more details.

File Size: See below (by the download links)

Format: Real and Windows Media

Notes: I can’t exactly remember what my thought process was, but I eventually challenged myself to make a video based on Without You by Del James (bear with me on this), using only footage from The Mighty Ducks, and the Without You music videos by Guns N’ Roses (for the non-rabid GN’R fans, that’s Don’t Cry, November Rain and Estranged).

The story of Without You is ultimately about the self-destruction of a man who appears to have everything, but still manages to screw it up. Theoretically Gordon could be that man, he’s rich, he’s well educated, he’s loved, and he could screw it up easily and lose everything. This vid tried to explore that. I have had to use footage from Don’t Cry and November Rain by Guns N’ Roses because, obviously, Casey and Gordon never got married in the Ducks fandom (but did in my mind, I love that pairing), and so forth. Any questions, hop over to the forums and ask there. I’ll answer in great detail, I assure you.

If the vid didn’t make sense, try reading the commentary.

Feedback: Always welcome. If you liked it, tell me. If it didn’t make sense, let me know, your opinion will not break me. I have never actually had any feedback on this vid, despite there being over 300 downloads. Was it really that bad?

New Version:
YouTube link removed, thanks to a scary Cease & Desist from BabyCow about my Boosh vids.

Vid: [The Lost Boys] Save Yourself

8
Feb 2007

Vid Title: Save Yourself

Artist: Stabbing Westward

Fandom: The Lost Boys

Summary: Michael and Star. Not exactly a love story.

Rated: 15, same as the movie

File Size: 18.1 MB in Real, or 9.8 MB in Windows Media Player

Format: Real and Windows, but please don’t upload this video elsewhere. It’s such bad manners.

Music Videos

20
Nov 2006

If you’ve dropped by to have a look at the music vids here, I’d have to suggest that you watch In The Hall of the Mountain King (Needful Things), Holding Out for a Hero, and Pump Up The Volume as your first few downloads. They’re my most recent, and also the best I’ve done. I’ve gotten better at vidding over time, so the further back you go, the more amaturish the vids are. That said, Bad Reputation is much better than Every Day I Love You Less and Less.

Something that baffles me is why November Rain Part 1 has 65 downloads, but Part 2 only has 29. Do people only watch the first half and not care about the second half? I really should have edited the song better, so it was all one video. I think maybe that can be my next project.

Vid Commentary: Needful Things

15
Oct 2006

Commentary on “In The Hall of the Mountain King” (Needful Things vid)

I know you probably have to be a big name vidder, like here’s luck to really necessitate a commentary, but I was pretty pleased with the Needful Things vid, so I thought maybe a commentary might be in order, especially since I get a fair amount of emails about vidding – very few about my vids, but plenty asking for technical help. This sort of implies that my vids don’t really speak to anyone on an emotional level, but every so often someone will think “Wow, that was cool, wonder how she did that”, which is still odd, since I rarely use special effects (Pump Up The Volume aside).

So, on to the commentary. Continue reading »

Vid: [Needful Things] In The Hall of the Mountain King

22
Sep 2006

New video, this time to Needful Things.

Vid Title: In The Hall of the Mountain King [commentary]

Artist: Sconosciuto/Edvard Greig

Fandom: Needful Things

Summary: A very short summary of the film, set to music? I think that’s the best I can do.

Rated: R – same as the source material, for a certain doggie scene. My apologies.

File Size: 18.7 MB – it’s very pretty quality.

Format: Real. Why? Because there’s hundreds of copies of Hero all over the net, thanks to YouTube, and I like to keep track of my vids – also, Real is far easy to deal with than Quicktime. I should have chosen this format years ago.

Notes: Again, I state this vid is rated R because of a quick flash of nastiness. It’s not on there long, so I can’t imagine people will be disturbed, but don’t say you weren’t warned.

Vid: [Mighty Ducks] November Rain

21
Dec 2005

Vid Title: November Rain [commentary]

Artist: Guns N’ Roses

Fandom: The Mighty Ducks

Clips from: D1, D2, D3 and Don’t Cry and November Rain by Guns N’ Roses

Summary: This is an AU vid, in which Casey and Bombay were married and Charlie is their son. This vid (or vids) deals with their break-up and Bombay’s self-destruction that follows it, not to mention Charlie’s reaction. See the Notes for more details.

File Size: Part 1: 8.13MB | Part 2: 12.9MB

If the vid didn’t make sense, try reading the commentary.

A Repetition of the Plea on Built This Way: Please give me some form of feedback. I feel that Carla and adamandcharliedude are overstretched as my only vid-feedbackers. Come on, tell me if you loved it, hated it, whatever. Just let them have a break from being the only people to comment!

Vid: [Mighty Ducks] Bad Reputation

21
Jul 2005

Vid Title: Ducks Behaving Badly

Song Title: Bad Reputation

Artist: Joan Jett

Fandom: The Mighty Ducks

Summary: Just as the title says, it’s Ducks behaving badly.

Rated: PG for a little violence

File Size: 12.6 MB

Thanks/Dedication: To Carla

Notes: Carla asked for me to vid to this song. I love this song, but lyrically it didn’t fit. So I just let violence happen in time with the beat. Oh, and a little bit of a stripping Portman crept in there. Portman rocks. I like it. I think it’s my most entertaining so far.

Further Notes: There appears to be a stray frame around the 1 minute mark. I have no idea why this is, because it’s actually in the middle of a clip, and going frame-by-frame in Adobe, I still can’t figure out what it is. *shrugs* It’s a phantom flicker.

Even Further Notes: Please give me some form of feedback. I feel that Carla and adamandcharliedude are overstretched as my only vid-feedbackers. Come on, tell me if you loved it, hated it, whatever. Just let them have a break from being the only people to comment!

Vid: [Mighty Ducks] Built This Way

30
May 2005
Built This Way

Built This Way

Vid Title: Built This Way

Artist: Samantha Ronson

Fandom: The Mighty Ducks

Summary:Did you ever even think of me, when I walked away?” Despite the fact that the banner looks so happy, this is angst.

Rated: PG for a little violence

File Size: 6.23 MB

Notes: This vid is only just over a minute long. Aside from anything, the copy of the song I was using actually died in the middle, so I just trimmed it off. Add to that there are actually very few Charlie/Adam moments in the movie, and if I did vid to the whole song, you’d only have 2 more minutes of pointless dirge.
