Vidder notes:  When I was a wee young thing I loved Bowie. All of it - from Hunky Dory to err... the late stuff. With the exception of the 'Laughing Gnome' that one, not so much.  I still love his songs but surprisingly this is only the second one I have vidded. His early lyrics can be a bit like word soup and I had issues with some of the lyrical interpretations here too. Yeah whatever was how it all ended up being resolved.  Buffy Season 4 tends to be the place to visit when cheering up is required - it's home to some of the funniest episodes in the whedonverse imo, we're currently half way through a rewatch at home too so it's pretty fresh in my mind. I do like vidding seasonal overviews. If I happen to chance upon good songs for the remaining seasons they'd be on my list to do.   So back to the vid - an ensemble overview of Season Four, mainly lighthearted looking at the scoobies reactions to change, real life and magical.

So I guess if I had waited a while I'd have been able to have submitted those valetines day icons for this challenge but they were already posted so look! I made some more.

I made the Angelus one ages ago for a slayalive contest. It's VERY pink. But I still like it.  And as I don't favour any particular ship these days I also made a new Spuffy one. I shall probably make some more later.

Hope all of you who celebrate enjoy your holiday.

I love the episode 'Pangs' even though I don't celebrate Thanksgiving. One highlight of my entire convention going experiences was listening to Jane Espenson give a live commentary of Pangs back in 2004 at the James & David Halloween Con in London. Afterwards I then had a brief chat with her about ricers etc when she signed a copy of the script for me. Sorry I couldn't think of anything deep or meaningful to ask her, but I remember managing to tell her how much I love her work.   The episode has some of my favourite quotes in the entire slayerverse, a snarky and insightful Spike, broody mopy Angel and Buffy kicking butt. Plus 'A bear!'  Jane is still one of my favourite writers ever,   I love catching her work on TV these days. 

Anyhow way back in 2008 I made a Pangs vidlet  - just a silly bit of fun. I inflict it upon now.  Have a great yam sham.

Notes: I used clips from the episode and the 'previously on BtVS scenes' shown just before the titles roll. This musical episode really is a tour de force. A strong reminder of why I love this show so much.  The song was earmarked for vidding for over three or four years. Yes I know from the title it's the bleedin' obvious, but the lyrics seemed to reflect the sorrow that runs throughout.   I was always wary (until now ) of vidding this episode,  when there is such strong tie to other (fantastic) music - but I gave it a shot anyway because I am foolish.   Pleased with the outcome  and I hope you ejoy it too. Feedback loved.

I'm currently working on other things based on "Once More With Feeling"  but just have to say that I love the vibrancy and intensity of the colour  throughout this episode - and of course those wonderful songs. Always a pleasure to wallow in a rewatch of this televisual masterpiece.  Talking of television I did post about my current viewing habits but it appears to have been eaten by el-jay. Oh well perhaps I'll re do it when I am on holiday.

Anyhow I was inspired to make a wallpaper. I suppose you could have at least one piece of artwork for each routine/song, perhaps I'll make a few more. And icons too.

A couple of posts back I made some bannersets for the lovely [livejournal.com profile] angearia  and I kind of liked the caps I chose so I kept them kicking around until I had time to make wallpapers.

A couple of days ago I offered some banner sets for 'More Joy Day'.  [livejournal.com profile] angearia  these are for you !   I couldn't choose between either a Buffy or Spuffy so I did both. Hope you like them.

If anyone else wants one, just comment here (first four gets a set - you can choose size if you want one for LJ)  

I kinda like the way these turned out so I may make matching wallpapers from the same caps.  I am supposed to be vidding right now but seem to be lacking a little motivation. 

I still have a gif banner for [livejournal.com profile] nausicaa81   Sorry it's taking time - I can't convert the clip I got so I am going to have to d/load it. Grrr stupid formats.

I would have loved to post a halloween vidlet this year after failing last - but alas as before, still no time, no time.  I did put together a couple of new wallpapers.  I glanced through the caps for 'All The Way' but nothing leapt out at me so I haven't done one for that episode.  



Available in  1024    1280     1680

Have a great Halloween weekend, and remember  "There is no problem that can not be solved with chocolate"

Title : Oh My God
Music : Oh My God by the Kaiser Chiefs
Characters : Ensemble with heavy focus on Buffy, Willow and Spike.
Warning/Rating : This is Season Six so there's violence and sex.
Download links  for Med AVI (77mB)  and HQ AVI (130mB)  and embed under cut. 
Description: BtVS S6 Overview - Oh My God I can't believe it, I've never been this far away from home. Everyone has lost their way.

Notes : I was only really familiar with the Kaiser Chief version of this song until recently, and feel that the harsh piano cords  at the introduction and mood throughout this recording suits Season Six perfectly, Lily Allen would be too chipper.   Anyhow this focuses on  how, after Buffy's return, things just go from bad to worse.  I had made half of this vid already when I stopped to make the SPN vidlet 'Happy Together' - something I have never done before,  so I was concerned about picking up the timeline again. However the change of mood helped no end  as  by the time I got to the last stages of this vid I felt very emotionally disturbed by the events from Episode 6.18 onward  I don't hate season Six but damn, those were dark, dark times.  Well I hope you enjoy the vid but you know, not 'enjoy' it. Comments welcome.   Now off to cuddle some kittens.  embed here  )

This is for the Hallowhedon II Convention - for ASH to sign - not SMG as I very much doubt she'll ever attend anything like this and I can understand that.. Early (and young) Giles and Buffy.

I've already have an Alan Tudyk sketch squirrelled away from a previous Con that he cancelled, but have still to do the gorgeous Stephanie Romanov as  Ms Lilah Morgan. If there's going to be more guests I hope they hurry up and announce them - just in case there some newbies I want to do. I hate to rush these things.

I'm kinda busy with art and stuff right now-  I have lots to do for the Dollhouse Convention in May which I will post as it is finished.

I'm trying to catch up with my TV shows and fighting the urge to start another vid project already (I have a list *this long* )  I've been reading the furore over the S8 Buffy comics - I'm very much in the 'wait and see camp'  as I'd like to get to the end of the arc before deciding whether I am happy or not with the character assassination development. I'd say I have my two favourite characters from the 'verse in front and centre apparently doing things that don't feel right. Oh well patience, wait and see.

Castle starts in the UK on Alibi channel tonight at 9pm - I'm pleased as I saw the first 5 episodes when it premiered stateside (which were fun) but getting the rest fell by the wayside. I've been very meh about Bones - I fell asleep in the last three episodes and it feels like it is going nowhere, at this rate not even the pretty will save it. Caprica I've enjoyed thus far I think I have about 3 eps left? [livejournal.com profile] bradcpu has convinced me to continue watching Legend of The Seeker and with the introduction of the new character in the S1 Finale the show became far more interesting ;)  The wizard still pees me off but I can say that if ever a crack vid idea came my way I doubt I could resist the urge. 

And this just made me and J fall off our chairs the other morning. I mean,  I'm not laughing at the poor old bloke but 'sunglasses in a wheelchair?'  And they thought he was sleeping?    I'm sure this was in a hollywood script somewhere.

Notes: I have, for a long time now,  wanted to edit an action vid featuring the slayers, so when I found this piece it felt right for the mood I wanted to convey so here it is. Comments appreciated.

I would have loved to have a new Halloween vid/vidlet to post this season but I didn't even attempt to do one (no time,no time)  So here's some pretties  or uglies ;)  instead.     3 Walls and some icons.  I nearly finished the sketch of  Harry Groener (Mayor Wilkins III) for the Hallowhedon Convention and then I find out he has cancelled :(      The line up at the moment is James Marsters, Nic Brendon, James Leary, Mercedes McNab and Mark Lutz.  I've met everybody previously but that's still an entertaining weekend ahead methinks.  

And what about DollhouseS2.04 ??  Damn,  that was great.  And to quote someone from whedonesque discussion  thread I would have liked to see Kennard killed more.  No more new DH until December and then it's double episodes - omg alliteration broadcasting  'its a double Dollhouse December'  I'm toying with the idea of making character/genre vidlets of the show as teasers over November and posting them just about everywhere.

So a while back I had a tinker with some photoshop manips.  Nothing ' dangly'  or NSFW because I'm not that proficient ;) -  this was initially due to a contest prompt at [livejournal.com profile] still_grrr  and then I was reminded  recently when lovely [livejournal.com profile] rua1412  updated her layout with some fine art.    So I went and dug out some paintings by Artists of which I am particularly fond and here we are!   The whedonverse meets the art world.

A little taster  'Echo' (or Faith if you prefer) as Isabella and the Pot of Basil (Holman-Hunt)  I was very fortunate to attend the massive Pre-Raphaelite Exhibition (twice) at the Tate back in '84 and saw this amongst others and can say that it certainly left an impression Click the thumb to see full size.

There's a bump in the basement
There's a knocking on the wall
In the pumping of the pistons
I swear I heard you call

There's a bump in the basement
There's a hole in the floor
There's a guard in the garden
Locking up the door

There's a rumble in the floorboards
No shutting out the sound
And the workers down below me
Digging underground

Feel the building all around me
Like a wrap of armoured skin
But the more we are protected
The more we're trapped within

Tell it like it is
Till there's no misunderstanding
When you strip it right back
Man feed machine
Machine feed man

Tell it like it is (And on this land, we cast our fortune)
Till there's no misunderstanding (And on this ground, we make our home)
You make up what you like
Man feed machine
Machine feed man

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you who celebrate 'The Ritual Sacrifice, with pie'.   

I made a vidlet to celebrate and indulged myself with Spike's history lecture at the end, just because it's so good.

One day I may make a serious vid that exceeds 2 minutes in length. In the meantime you'll be subjected to my silly short vidlets to strange song ideas.
