I am in a terrible mood and discouraged about the vid I'm (not) working on, so let's resurrect this meme:

Pick any section of a vid or a paragraph or any passage less than 500 words from any fanfic I've written and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you a DVD commentary on that snippet of what I was thinking when I made or wrote it, why I wrote it, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the vid or fic, and anything else you'd expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

I like to start at the beginning... If it's not too big of a section, would you talk about Origin Stories because I'm still in love with this section:

I crawled down to the basement
When the weather got cold
Like a lost lamb returning to the fold
And when the outside world recedes from view
It's just a year's supply of make-up
And memories of you
1967 Colt 45, holding back the vampires
Keeping me alive
There's an envelope with some cash in it
Out by the front door
This is what they make you take the medication for

Thank you. I'm still in awe of that vid and every time I come back to watch it, I see new things I missed.

Can I be obnoxious and ask another question? :)

That vid is so great. I love it and Women's Work as such devastating critiques of TV conventions.

How you chose clips, the concept, what gave you ideas.

Thank you SO much. Now I need to watch it again. I really loved the gestures on the beat! It was so Tony.

OOH. OK how about the very opening of each vid? I always love hearing how people choose where and how to begin things.

I am sorry it took me so long to reply to this, when I got TWO! (I am so greedy.) Stupid sinus infection snot blech.

A sense of strangeness, mystery, beauty, underlying
threat. A sense of entering a strange world. Visual eerieness a contrast
to ethereal music

I felt that way about both vids -- they had this really dreamy quality, not dreamy like misty-woo but the kind of surreal logic in a dream where everything makes sense but it's very enigmatic. -- Hell, the Inside vid absolutely hooked me into watching the series right there, and I think it was your vid and Boom Boom Pow (and a lot of recs) that got me into Fringe. -- Mesmerizing, that's the word I want. Very psychological, interior, which I'm used to seeing in words, but I should think that would be really hard to pull of with external film stuff! //knows nothing about film/vidding, can you tell

Have you seen Continuum? It has Rachel Nichols in it too, she's the HEROINE, and she does a beautiful job. It's on SyFy (my God, I still hate that spelling, after so many years). But we're streaming it on Netflix. It's filmed in Vancouver and has a really pleasantly surprising amount of PoC characters -- and the dialogue's great. The time travel plot seems a little shaky, but hell, I'm mainly watching it for Rachel Nichols being awesome anyway.

Character studies are AWESOME. Yes.

.....for all its flaws (omg the last ep with the giant guy who was, what, eating girls dumb enough to Internet?) I really wish I had The Inside on DVD. Nichols was so great.

The instrumental section from 1:55 to 2:09 of Riot Act, because it is one of my favorite vid sections ever. I love it lots!

This reminds me I have got to Netflix the DVDs of this (why is it not on streaming? why?).
