So in September 2013 Vienna Teng released a new album (you can listen to it for free on Bandcamp, and if you’re not familiar already I seriously cannot recommend it strongly enough), and I and a few of my friends went absolutely bananas over it. I at some point happened to noticed the section of my friend group that was collectively losing their shit over this album and the section of my friend group who were vidders intersected nicely, and there was quite a lot of discussion of vidding various tracks on twitter, which led me to An Idea.

I was really enjoying the album as a whole, which doesn't often happen to me, and I thought it would be cool if we could get enough people together who each wanted to vid one of the tracks and put together sort of a vid album.

I threw the idea out to a few people, and their response was gratifyingly enthusiastic. :D We managed to get everyone a song they were happy with and inspired by, I think, though we didn't *quite* manage to cover all 11 tracks without some doubling up, though we did get there! :D

We agreed pretty quickly that we'd much rather have it be across a range of fandoms, as that would make it more diverse. Plus, I think we'd have struggled to pick one common fandom!

Basically I am extremely lucky in knowing some very talented people, and we’d like to present our vid album.

ETA: So, some of us went to Nine Worlds Geekfest in August 2014 and wound up talking to the Daily Dot about the Project and why we think Vienna Teng is so popular with vidders, and they wrote a lovely article! Which Vienna Teng then linked to on her Facebook and Twitter! So that was pretty cool. :D

We had so much fun with the Aims Vid Album, and had been casting about for our next album to tackle, when Taylor Swift released a new album! Now, I have to admit, never in my wildest dreams (hehe, see what I did there?) did I think I could get people on board for a whole Taylor vid album, but I underestimated 1989, and my friends' good taste, and here we are. ;D

We've got vids already!! :D And several others have been claimed and/or are in the works. I think posting will probably start in earnest after Festivids, watch this space! :D

Hello friends, it is that time of year again where I belatedly solicit vid recs from you all.

This year I decided to make a vidshow about how much I hate capitalism. (I'm not kidding.) The working, and probably actual, title is "Be Gay, Do Crimes".

So that being said I'd like your vids on this theme. I'm pretty open to interpretation but I mostly want to attempt a vid show on queers and marginalized folk doing what they gotta to survive under capitalism/the patriarchy/etc.

Fandoms I'm considering, an incomplete list:

- Leverage
- Black sails
- Oceans 8
- Carmen Sandiego (new, old, or both)
- I'd take a suitable Mighty Nein/Critical Role vid if there was one that was about them being criminals/trying to carve out their niche enough
- Person of Interest
- White Collar
- Firefly
- Farscape
- Orange is the New Black
- Killing Eve
- Cabaret
- The Matrix
- Bitch Planet
- Saga
- Six of Crows
- Hustle
- Blackpool
- Circus (it's a shitty 90s movie about a heist)
- Legends of Tomorrow
- St Trinian's
- Bandidas

I'm not the most coherent I've ever been right now so if this doesn't make sense, please let me know and I'll be happy to try and clarify. The list of fandoms is not set in stone but hoping showing my working will prompt other suggestions.

So yes, seeking vids in the above fandoms or vids you think do what I'm talking about.

Thank you! <3

Hello friends!

I come seeking two things:

1) your favourite dance vids

2) your favourite dance movies, tv shows, episodes of tv shows, documentaries, particularly:
a) if they feature non-white, non-thin, non-"normative" bodies
b) people falling in love with dance
c) people dancing together as an act of community/solidarity

Thank you!

1. Where did you go the last time you took an airplane ride?

CANADA :D It was a great time. I went to visit L&E and their tiny perfect bleb. The flight out was lovely, the flight back a little full but I slept a lot.

2. Are you a nervous flyer or a comfortable flyer?

Comfortable, and even though I've got to do it a lot since I was tiny, I still love a lot of things about it, mainly being totally cut off from the rest of the world. (I'm actually sorry wifi on planes is becoming more common, but at least while it's a paid add-on rather than free I have enough impulse control that it doesn't affect me yet.) I love choosing my reading material, and making sure I have plenty of choice, and enough to last the flight(s).

I have recently started having weird thoughts particularly at take-off about what a CRAZY THING flying is for humans to do, which I'm side-eyeing my brain for pretty hard, but mostly I can shrug them off. I have also been known to fall asleep before and then sleep through take-off if I'm tired enough.

3. Window seat or aisle seat?

Window window window. Not only is the view a good time, but it's so much easier to sleep with the wall to lean against and wriggle around next to, and every bit of extra room helps. Also I have no fucks to give about asking to get up to pee. Like I'm not a dick about it, but I also don't get anxiety about doing it when I need to. It's way more annoying getting up for others, make of that what you will. ;D

4. What is the worst experience you've had flying?

Hmm. There was the time when I was 10, looked out the window, saw the wing was on fire, and then there was an announcement we were turning back around due to a fault with the plane, but tbh that was mostly exciting. (We then got stuck inside Athens airport for hours because by border control's lights, we'd cleared customs and left the country, which was frustrating for my mother given we lived walking distance from the airport. Eventually, they took most people off to hotels, but we walked home and went to bed. V anti-climactic. We walked back to the airport later and were squeezed onto other flights the next day.)

Or the time I was flying back from Greece with my younger siblings age approx 16 and my visa had run out (this was pre Greek passport, thanks parents) and I had to explain to immigration that no, we all live here, it's OK, and the guy kept calling me Mrs and assuming my siblings were my kids.

Or the time I flew with a head cold and thought my brain was going to burst and then had blocked ears for a week afterwards. I've definitely flown in various types of pain before, it's always a p bad time as while flying is fun, it's not very COMFORTABLE, so period pain, muscle aches, or illness definitely make it worse.

I've been with people while they had their worst experience flying but while it was upsetting to see people you love upset, it wasn't MY worst experience if that makes sense, I just wish they hadn't had to live through it. All of which are very mild, tbh, so I count myself lucky.

(So saying, the time I ran out of reading material before I'd got to the first stopover en route to NZ, where we didn't clear customs so I couldn't go buy more, and the flight was full of noisy obnoxious wankers off to the rugby world cup was quite a trial.)

5. What is the best experience you've had flying?

Oooh. I've had flights to NZ where I've had a whole row to myself by the window, that's always good. I've flown first class once, and that was quite fun, but the company was a little stressful and I had a lot of high, ultimately unrealised expectations, so not AS fun as it could've been, though definitely very spacious and comfotable. Probably the two times I've flown a small plane by myself in NZ but not sure if that counts. Small commercial planes are always novel. Flying into London City for the first time last year was everything I wanted it to be. Landing in Auckland and knowing you only have that short hop to Wellington left is always a good feeling, as is seeing Wellington come into view, particularly when I knew I had the pup waiting at the end. Flying Xmas day was fun. Any time you get a row to yourself for a long haul flight, really. It just feels so decadent. Empty flights FTW. Nothing leaps out though.

So, IDK if you all knew this, but Wonder Woman has a movie now? :D?

I don’t even know how to begin talking about this, but my thoughts are still super loud so I’m going to have a go.

I really loved it? Which I’m so desperately relieved about because that was NOT a given? Like I went to see it by myself Thursday (well, after a LOT of dithering, [personal profile] usuallyhats and I went to the same showing but sat separately and went home separately so we could deal with our feelings at our own pace) and it was a REALLY SOLID CALL. It took me the better of Friday to work out how I felt about it, beyond relief I hadn’t just hated it outright.

I guess what I’m trying to say is the possibility that I could have an easy, straightforward response to this movie was pretty remote, and I was so wound up about actually seeing it, that I sort of forgot I would then...have seen it? And have to deal with my reactions? Which is ridiculous with hindsight, but there you go.

It did do some things I REALLY HATED, some things I sort of liked but wish had been handled differently, but also loads of things I loved, so I’m happy.

And I dunno, I’ve also quite abruptly hit this wall of “I can tease my little sister cuz we’re family, but you better back off” about criticism so, there’s that.


A lot, and I do mean A LOT, of words behind the cut. Full of spoilers. )

OK. I’m not actually sure I covered everything I wanted to but my head does feel a little quieter.

IDK, I just fancied it. ;D

1. Your main fandom of the year?

Mass Effect? :D? Like I'm not sure what else I did this year, fannishly, apart from play all 3 games at [personal profile] carawj's house. ;D Granted I started last December, but still. (Mass Effect really deserves a post all its own and that may well come, I'm kind of in a DW mood at the mo.)

2. Your favourite film watched this year?

Ghostbusters. I went with [personal profile] spiderwolves and E, and literally, she and I spent the whole time clutching each other and soundlessly screaming, it was wonderful. (I'm actually struggling to remember what other films I saw in cinemas this year. I did enjoy the new Star Trek, but mostly cuz of how much the people I went with loved it. <3 Other than that *what other new films did I even watch, help*)

3. Your favourite book read this year?

This has been a rubbish book year for me, mostly see answer to question 1. *glances at goodreads* Like seriously, even the perpetual Vorkosigans re-read only got as far as 'Cordelia's Honour', which is always a contender for best book I've read any given year.

Although so saying, on closer examination of goodreads I am being unfair, I did discover Frances Hardinge in the spring, not to mention The Goblin Emperor. I think The Goblin Emperor or Gullstruck Island is my favourite book this year, actually.

4. Your favourite TV show of the year?

Supergirl, no question. <3 (Possibly also the only new TV show I watched this year...? IDK, I'm v tired as I write this and it's hard to remember things that aren't Mass Effect.)

5. Your favourite online fandom community of the year?

This has been quite an offline year fannishly in some ways, see question 1 again. So probably the Vidukon lot and smaller corners like me, the C's, [personal profile] tellitslant and [personal profile] sophia_gratia being cranky femslash old ladies, or [personal profile] beccatoria and [personal profile] chaila's Diana blanketfort of squee I'm a periodic visitor of. <3 Plus like, the fannish part of twitter is always a delight, too many people to list there. And like, lots of my fav fannish people are as much RL as online, which is still super great. <3

6. Your best new fandom discovery of the year?

...Mass Effect? :D (Technically 2015 but wow I had no idea when I started. I thought I did BUT NO.)

7. Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year?

Person of Interest. I haven't seen season 5, though I am VERY spoiled for it. It definitely sounds like it was great, and even my issues are redeemable and I know it's made lots of people so hapy but for me all the fix-it fic and openess of the ending don't make up for it being the dead lesbian straw that broke this lesbian camel's back. It was the one I had set my heart on not going for the trope, and then they did, and just felt so disappointed and heartsick I haven't been able to face season 5, and I can't really see myself doing so anytime soon.

8. Your TV boyfriend of the year?

Come again? (I mean, if I have to have one, can I at least say Garrus Vakarian or Lin-Manuel Miranda?)

9. Your TV girlfriend of the year?

I mean, if it has to be TV probably Alex Danvers or CJ Cregg, but I think we all know it's Liara T'Soni. ;D

10. Your biggest squee moment of the year?

Oh, gosh. *Finishing* Mass Effect doesn't really qualify, cuz while that was amazing, squee is not the word. (Though playing Citadel DLC might. ;D)) I think the Wonder Woman trailer in the summer ranks pretty highly though, I flipped my shit fairly epically about that.

Oh no. Oh wait. (This is how sleep deprived I am writing this.) How could I say anything else? So I never told this story on DW, just on Twitter, but I went to the US for two very dear friends' wedding (to each other) this summer and while in NYC I tried my darndest to go see Hamilton AND SUCCEEDED. So THAT WAS PROBABLY IT REALLY. (I also saw Fun Home and Colour Purple, which lacked the ridiculousness of my Hamilton tale, but were still incredible.)

11. The most missed of your old fandoms?

I dunno, actually. Which is probably good. I do like [personal profile] netgirl_y2k's answer about missing Terry Pratchett's voice this year of all years though.

12. The fandom you haven't tried yet, but want to?

I'm very happy with Mass Effect, thank you. ;D (Mind you, [personal profile] carawj is flirting with Critical Role, so given I'm still reeling from the last time she jumped into a new fandom, maybe that? I guess there's also Dragon Age.

Also it has now been like 8 years since [personal profile] cosmic_llin and I became friends (to the day on Facebook even!) and for 7 of those years she's been trying to get me to watch Voyager, so like, this is just mean at this point. Why am I even like this. We just don't know. And I even know I'm totally cutting off my own nose to spite my face, AND YET.

13. Your biggest fan anticipations for the New Year?

OK, so I basically filled this thing in for a) Mass Effect yelling but b) NEXT YEAR IS THE WONDER WOMAN MOVIE AND I A LITTLE BIT FORGOT TILL I READ [personal profile] netgirl_y2k's ANSWER. SERIOUSLY SELF PRESERVATION MEANS I FORGET THIS FROM TIME TO TIME AND OH MY GOD. Like. I can't help it, every trailer and image I've seen, every interview I've read just ramps my expectations up further, I did, at some distant point, try to keep them low, but BOY THAT SHIP HAS SAILED SO DAMN FAR, I THINK IT MIGHT HAVE LIKE, BECOME SPACE-WORTHY AND BE ON ITS WAY TO ANOTHER SOLAR SYSTEM.
