I am trying to find a fanvid. I don't remember anything useful (like, for example, the name of the song. or the vidder), but I do know the following things:

1. It's for BSG.
2. It was made shortly after the Exodus arc wrapped up, or at least it only encompasses the events of the four Exodus episodes.
3. The song is in 4/4 time.
4. It has a very hard beat.
5. It starts off with, like, quick clips of Ellen and Cavil, Sam and Tyrol setting the bomb, etc (much like the episodes, actually. But I am SURE it is a vid).
6. Parts of the video are supersaturated in colour.
7. It ends with Kara and Tigh being really sad for separate reasons.
8. UGH, THIS IS VERY FRUSTRATING. I can basically sing the song, except for any of the words.

I am pretty sure it's NOT [livejournal.com profile] beccatoria or Chaila, though now I am doubting myself forever. Basically, if you know of a BSG vid that comes EVEN CLOSE, I would appreciate directions to it.

ETA: Is there a vidder called trxsplsh? Um, that might not be how you spell it, but basically trick+splash?

Apparently Bear McCreary watches fan-covers of the BSG stuff on Youtube? And decided to give awards to the ones he liked the most? HOW AWESOME IS THAT?

I'll tell you how awesome:

1. Passacaglia on the pipe organ.
2. Prelude to War as a heavy metal anthem.
3. Creative use of computer parts, for extra meta.
4. Creative use of actual toasters.
5. SAXOPHONES! NO ONE EVER DOES SAXOPHONES!

And more!

HOLY GOD, BEAR MCCREARY!

It's [livejournal.com profile] bsg_remix time, and in trying to decide if I want to sign up this year, I decided to compile a list of my ten favourite moments in BSG canon. Because all Sanctuary and no play makes [livejournal.com profile] grav_ity go slightly (more) insane.

Spoilers, ahoy! )

I'm sure I missed something. Please feel free to add.

Here we are again with another vid I didn't plan to make. I seem to be starting a trend. Or I can't get the Atlantis clips to work, you pick.

ANYWAY, I heard this cover of Poker Face on Wednesday, and by Thursday night, the vid was already starting to take shape in my mind. In the beginning, it was more about the relationships of the women with one another, but it ended up being about their relationships with me. And how they all became the ship.

(Seriously, if you'd told me that you could turn "Poker Face" into a touching duet about a girl and her mother using only a piano and the power of Broadway, I wouldn't have believed you. But here we are!)

So this vid is about people who didn't have to love, who probably shouldn't have loved, who loved.

She's got to love nobody )

Or on Sendspace

Once again, critical reviews are welcomed. I think I did quite a bit better this time (if only because I fixed the music), but I appreciated any advice and recommendations. If nothing else, I got better at cheating with this vid, which helps cover up my mistakes. ;)

AN: I blame the porn battle (number IX. Where has the time gone?), for giving me a prompt about Leoben that I just couldn’t make porn about, and reopening all my thought about Leoben and religion and his relationships with everyone else on the show.

Oh, and Lyssie, but she betaed at 1AM, so I suppose I should forgive her. ;)

Spoilers: The whole kit and caboodle.

Disclaimer: Not mine.

Rating: Kid friendly.

Summary: Everywhere he goes, Leoben starts a religion.

Okay, so in a fit of...something, I decided to try the porn battle, and instead I came up with this.

Prompt: Battlestar Galactica (2003), Anastasia "Dee" Dualla/Leoben, empty (decidedly kid friendly)

Voice Alone )

*headdesk*

...maybe Faramir/Eowyn...

The remix has been revealed and my only suspicion about the entire thing proved to be correct, and now I am reccing the fic, because it was AMAZING.

Infinite Regress, by [livejournal.com profile] pellucid is about Pythia and Athena, and how prophets become non-linear, and how relationships change, how even the gods cannot escape their destinies, and...it's amazing, so y'all should go and read it.

I was going to wait until I'd regained some measure of coherency, but I've decided I can't. You all need to go watch [livejournal.com profile] sache8's "Holiday" vid right now.

One of my problems with reviewing a video is that when great things happen at the beginning, I totally forget them because great things also happen at the END, and my brain is usually "ZOMG"ed out. This is totally one of those vids.

So you're going to have to watch it more than once. Watch it for the editing on the beat of the song, watch it for the editing on the lyrics of the song, watch it for the editing on the beat of the lyrics of the song, and then watch it again, because it's THAT GREAT.

There is almost no wasted movement in this vid. Every clip has a beat. There's a bit where we see the segment where Kara and Lee trade punches, and there's a beat on her hit, his hit, and her FRAKKING RECOIL. It's INCREDIBLE. And it's not even the most amazing part of the whole thing!

"Here the sound of the falling rain
Coming down like an armageddon flame.
Such a shame the ones who died without a name..."

Happy Birthday [livejournal.com profile] sabaceanbabe! I may never spell Sebacean correctly, but it's worth it. :)

That got a little less fluffy as I was writing it, but whatever. It ends well. :)
