|Actor spotting, Sweet Charity, Episodic TV and Vid meme
||[Jan. 13th, 2008|02:02 pm]
So after watching Friday Night Lights (*love*), I found Remember the Titans, one of my favorite movies I have watched many times. And there's actual football in it which I know FNL has cut down on for ratings sake but I still selfishly wish there was more (I really need to check out Playmakers one of these days). Anyways, to my surprise I start recognizing people I'd never noticed before. There's AVON from THE WIRE!!! There's CLAIRE from Heroes! (omg so cute) There's Turk from Scrubs! There's Randy from My Name is Earl! (who I recognize from watching the show or end of it or previews of it before The Office last year). And then there's Kip Purdue and Ryan Gosling who I've seen in various movies/vids. . Julius (AVON!!) and Gerry are no less slashier than they were when I first saw them. Gotta love it.
So I decided to offer myself for bidding at Sweet Charity. It's for the Writer's Guild Foundation helping out people affected by the Writer's Strike but aren't a member of the union. I really believe in helping people in the entertainment industry considering how much happiness they bring me and fandom so I urge you to consider bidding on people starting January 18th and running til the 26th. Here is my description:
I will do one vid in the following fandoms: Angel the Series, Arrested Development, Brokeback Mountain, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Cupid, Due South, Firefly, Friday Night Lights, Heroes, Highlander (Methos episodes only), House (no House/Cameron, Cameron), How I Met Your Mother, Little Mis Sunshine, Project Runway, Pushing Daisies, Queer as Folk (no romantic Brian/Michael), Smallville (S1-3 only), The Office, The Wire, Torchwood (no Owen or Gwen), Ugly Betty, Veronica Mars (S1 only).
Provide me one song (or more if you want me to choose) in any genre you want although I prefer something that isn't overused (along the lines of Bring Me to Life or Chasing Cars).
I can do gen, slash, het, femslash and canon gay. No constructed reality/AU please. Give me as much or as little direction as you prefer. Examples of my vids can be found here: My Vids.
So if you want me to make a vid for you, bid for me! My deadline is March 31st so I can finish your vid before the deadlines of Vividcon start coming up. I will do whatever you want me to do with those guidelines above.
On a random note I watched the Pilot of Homicide: Life on the Street. It only confirmed to me that I HATE episodic TV especially when it's cop/procedural based with no overriding season/series arc. I do of course love Frank and I liked the salami guy and I can see semblances of The Wire in it but the boring murder cases put me off. I will probably try it at a later time especially the ones David Simon actually wrote but for now, not for me. I did listen to So Pure the other day and I looove that song and wish I could see the vid again. Maybe at DIY, I hope? Also I'm working on Farscape again. It's haaaard because the episodes are episodic and kind of boring as I don't really know the characters yet (my favorite so far is Aeryn for the record). I'm trying to hold out til A Human Reaction as I hear that's a really good episode but so far I'm on the 6th episode so I have ten to go. I know I'm going to kick myself for going slow on this show but what can you do.
And last, vid meme: The Favorite Vid meme: "comment here with a link to your vids, and I will tell you which vid of yours is my favorite, and why." Also if you know I read your fic, then you can comment for the fic version.
