eruthros: ST: TOS, Spock holding a kitten (ST: TOS - Spock and kitten)
Guys guys I just watched [livejournal.com profile] bironic's Star Trek DS9 vid Born Too Late, which she made for [community profile] kink_bingo for the prompt historical roleplay, and it is amazing. I clapped and cheered and went "aww" and enjoyed all the ways that Star Trek enjoys its historical roleplay: the way they power-walk in period dress, and the sadness that comes from playing those roles and then having to leave them, and the joy in recreating moments of the past, and the joy that comes from touching the past, and the things the crew learns from it, and the amazing sexiness that is Benjamin Sisko singing. *hugs vid*

I have been having trouble posting lately; I feel like I can't finish anything, or like I can't manage to write coherent sentences. So this is me saying fuck it, and possibly by the end of the post I'll be down to bullet points, but at least I'll be posting something.

So! The [community profile] kink_bingo arbitrary mod prizes are a sort of recs list, but they could never include include all the awesome fanworks that I wanted to give prizes to. So here are some other [community profile] kink_bingo fanworks that I enjoyed, in a wide range of fandoms. (A sad percentage of Mission Read/Listen To/Look At All the Things is spent crossreferencing headers with wikipedia before reading/looking at/listening to, actually. Now I have learned about The Losers! Maybe someday I will even watch it. It could happen.)

[personal profile] oper_1895's bingo. (White Collar, Peter/Neal and Peter/Neal/Elizabeth, all set in the same universe in which Neal is asexual.) What I like )

[personal profile] tristesses's bingo (Start Trek AOS Gaila/Uhura, Harry Potter Cho/Padma, Temeraire Laurence/Tharkay) What I like )

[personal profile] cypher's bingos; she wrote 15 stories this round, so if you're looking for a place to start how about Instinct (Eternal Poison, Rondemion/Logue) or Extra Strength (Last Remnant, Rush/David) or Whole New World (.hack//GU, Kuhn/Silabus). What I like )

[personal profile] busaikko's whole bingo (SGA, John/Rodney, John/Ronon; in the John/Rodney stories John is asexual, in the John/Ronon story Ronon is a trans man) What I like )

[personal profile] gloss's We all got in tune (Middleman, Wendy/Lacey/Noser) and Motherfuckers, quick to kiss (DCU, Dick Grayson/Jason Todd, Nightwing/Robin/Superman) What I like )

[livejournal.com profile] blackfic's This is Our Love Story (White Collar, Peter/Elizabeth) What I like )

[personal profile] pocketmouse's Quantum Equilibrium and Little Red Book (Doctor Who, Amy/Rory + Eleven) What I like )

[livejournal.com profile] the_deep_magic's multi-fandom writing on the body recs list (several fandoms) What I like )

[personal profile] liodain's bingos (Watchmen, Dan/Rorschach fic and art) What I like )

[livejournal.com profile] igbc's Pierced Through the Heart (Starsky and Hutch, Starsky/Hutch) What I like )

Also if you're looking for even more fanworks, you could check out my kink bingo tag on delicious or thingswithwing's kink bingo tag. (We each only looked at half the things, actually, and then made short lists for each other, so there's a lot of non-overlapping stuff there.)

... in other news, guys, I am down to like eight open fic tabs, all of which are giant epic stories of giantness. Wow. Also I guess I might have to read some of those giant epic stories of giantness or something. Maybe I'll finally read The Hard Prayer! (Leftmost fic tab, open at least eight months. Someday I will read it.)

1. Star Trek recs!

First, two gen stories by [personal profile] laurajv. These aren't officially part of a series, but they are both part of [personal profile] laurajv working out the consequences of the movie. And she's just so good at conceptualizing Vulcans as alien, and at world-building the future as different, and the Federation as a group that doesn't really understand each other, that I just completely fell for both of these stories instantly. These are true stories; this is the Federation, after. They are: The Unveiled Secret and The Word for World Is--.

And What We Don't Talk About by [personal profile] ellen_fremedon. Spock/Uhura, after. I'm not as keen on the world-building here, but I think she's done a really great job of working out what the movie means to Spock, and the choices he has to make now.

2. And now for the whining: I was awakened this morning at six am by street work. Loud, loud street work, and the workers chatting with each other at high volume, and the backhoe scraping along the ground, and the hammers breaking up the asphalt. Which, okay, I could've used a posted warning on the street to let me know -- what if I'd had a car parked here? -- but it is road maintenance season, these things happen, whatever. BUT. THEY KNOCKED OUT MY WATER. SOMETIME BEFORE 6 AM.

Yes. I woke up this morning to discover that I had no water. And since I had no warning, I don't have any in buckets or pitchers anything. So I can't shower, or brush my teeth, or flush the toilet, or have anything to drink. THANKS ROAD MAINTENANCE GUYS I HATE YOU. How in hell did they knock my water out? They're just scraping the asphalt off!

ETA: OH WAIT. Now I have water back. It's BROWN. I nearly brushed my teeth with it, I was so excited. BROWN YOU GUYS. THAT IS NOT A GOOD SIGN.

So I was talking about the long, long list of comedy, satire, and parody vids I posted, and I said "mmmm sexy" to describe them. [livejournal.com profile] friede said "really?" And I had to explain that, no, not really, not sexy sexy, just very good vids. But it made me think about how rarely sex is actually the theme of a vid. Relationships, yes; sex, no. So here are some sex-themed vids, not at all consistently sexy, but dealing with sex a lot.

T. Jonesy and Killa's Star Trek:TOS vid to 'Closer,' song by Nine Inch Nails )

Sisabet's Angel and BtVS vid to 'Closer,' song by Nine Inch Nails )

JS and AAR's Buffy vid to 'Bad Touch,' song by Bloodhound Gang )

Bonus vid: Pamela J. Smith's Stargate SG-1 vid to 'Get Off,' song by Prince )

Next week: Action vids. Maybe. (Or maybe vids about villains. Or about minor characters? Reinterpretations of canon? Romantic relationship vids? Unrequited love vids? Something. If you care, or want to see something I haven't mentioned, comment.)

Previous recs and reviews here.

I link to vidder's sites unless they prohibit it, but you'll notice that a lot of links are to password-protected sites. Even if you don't usually do that sort of thing, really, it's okay to ask for a password -- vidders aren't trying to keep you out. They're trying to keep TPTB out, and they're trying to make sure that new fans understand that distributing other people's vids -- especially to TPTB -- is not okay, so they have you send a little statement explaining that you know that. So it's easy, it's painless, heck, sometimes it's even automated, and in return for asking you get fabulous vids. Where is the bad?

Edited 7:10 to fix stupid mistakes (see [livejournal.com profile] sineala's comment below). I should never post when on cold medicine.

So those of you who talk to me fairly often probably already know that I collect songvids. (And index them. Because I have obsessive organization problems.) I have 8+ hours of songvids. Really.

I just added some stuff to my comedy-favorites playlist. Good comedy vids are harder to make (or so I understand) than good drama, and a lot of the thing on this playlist are dramatic too -- constructed reality vids, for example, or vids where the song choice is underlying snark at characters or the concept of the show. So subtle funny, which is the best kind. A comic song does not a funny vid make, but sometimes it really works.

Anyway, I thought I'd post the contents of said playlist here in case anyone is interested. This playlist starts with broader humor and heads subtle as it goes -- 22 vids for a total of about an hour and ten minutes. The lj cuts are there for people who might only be interested in a few fandoms; if all them lj-cuts irritate you, you can just click through and read all the way down.

I start off nice and meta with Jackie K.'s "If You Were In My Movie," song by Suzanne Vega. Read more... )

And the I go through a whole bunch of vignette-type vids, which can use one-shot jokes because they only last for fifteen seconds. One Sick Fuck Production's "Cheap Shots" and "Highlander - Cheap Shots" are a bunch of songs cut together, so a bunch of artists. Read more... )

The other vignette vid I particularly like is Waldo's "Polka Party," song by Weird Al. Read more... )

Alasen's "Istanbul (Not Constantinople)" is a single-vignette vid, about forty seconds long. Read more... )

Karoli's Smallville vid to "I Can Change" from the South Park Movie is one of the ultimate comedy vids. Read more... )

The vidder here probably didn't mean this vid to be funny. It's supposed to be a heartfelt mix of song and clips and emotions. But it is so hilarious. Because Phoenix vidded Mulder/Krycek. To Britney Spears. "... Baby One More Time." Read more... )

Then a vid where the song choice really makes the vid funny, although this one is intentional. Vyra did a Buffy season six vid to... "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life." Read more... )

Songs without lyrics are often difficult to vid to, but Fangirl pulls it off with a Firefly vid to "Go Go Cactusman," the Cowboy Bebop theme. Read more... )

Wendy came up with a perfect, perfect song choice for a vid about the Mayor: "You're Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile." Read more... )

Lithium Doll did a vid about the Firefly crew pulling their stunts to "Good Ol' Boys," the Dukes of Hazard theme. Read more... )

Then a multi-fandom vid by Diana Williams to "RESPECT" by Pink. This is also probably not supposed to be a comedy vid. Read more... )

Sisabet's "Cowboy," to the Kid Rock song, is both a serious character study and a good comic vid at the same time. Read more... )

Crazygrrl did an excellent Angel/Buffy vid to Prozzak's "Strange Disease." Read more... )

Then I do two constructed reality vids. Constructed realities aren't always funny -- Killa and T. Jonesy's "Closer" is the best constructed reality vid I've ever seen and isn't funny at all. Wrenching and horrible and really wonderfully done. /tangent.

The first is Soappocrates' "If I Were a Drinker," song by Travis Tritt. Read more... )

Killa and Carol S. did a Highlander constructed reality to "Opportunities," song by the Pet Shop Boys. Read more... )

Then another Killa vid, this time with T. Jonesy and Hafital: a Captain Kirk character study to "Razzle Dazzle," performed by Richard Gere. Read more... )

Then a Highlander vid by Luminosity to "Not a Virgin Anymore," song by Poe. Read more... )

Pamela J. Smith did a wonderful SG-1 vid to "Dead" by TMBG. Read more... )

And look, it's another Killa vid, this time with Melina. Amanda-themed to Rockapella's "Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?" Read more... )

Well, you can beat it with [livejournal.com profile] sineala's wonderful, wonderful "Sorry," an X-Files vid to the Nerf Herder song. Read more... )

And that's it, finally. Those of you who were wondering if I was ever going to post about fandom again are probably very sorry now. *g*
