We watched some vids the other day, and as a result I have the following stuck in my head:

"Boys boys boys, this monkey's gone to heaven, this monkey's gone to heaven, boys boys boys buy us drinks in bars."

Thanks for this earworm are due to [personal profile] akemi42's Boys Folder and [personal profile] charmax's Unnatural Selection. Two songs, two vids in completely different genres, three fandoms. There's no reason for me to be humming them simultaneously. And yet:

"I like you a lot, lot, all I want is hot, hot, this monkey's gone to heaven, this monkey's gone to heaven, boys boys boys we like boys in cars."

Please get out, earworm.

Also: I guess this is an Adrian Veidt/James Ellison crossover? Or maybe Adrian Veidt/Some Robots.

Less instant given that I betaed, but nonetheless, everyone, you should all go watch [personal profile] thingswithwings's new multi vid "We Go Together."

It's for her watersports square at [community profile] kink_bingo. You might think it's an unvidable kink, but she's done it -- using fannish sources. And it's amazing, and brilliantly done, and seriously you should go watch it now. It gives me great joy.

So, this morning I was sitting in a cafe, doing some reading and sipping an iced soy latte. (Because it is apocalyptic weather here in the Bay Area, where we are worried about drought and about fires already in January.)

And Johnny Cash's Mercy Seat started playing. "Hee," I thought, because it always reminds me of [livejournal.com profile] lim's amazing John Sheppard vid I Am/Lamb.

So I'm listening to Johnny Cash tell me about a crime of which he's totally innocent, you know, and doing my crossword puzzle.

And then ... wtf? The next song on the playlist is Iron and Wine's Evening on the Ground. Or, as I think of it, [livejournal.com profile] hollywoodgrrl's Evening on the Ground. ALSO a John Sheppard vid, also awesome.

When the next song to play was Iggy Pop's "I Wanna Be Your Dog," I nearly choked on my latte. John Sheppard again? This time in [livejournal.com profile] thingswithwings's a lieutenant colonel is being beaten?

Seriously, guys, if I was not listening to some barrista's vid songs playlist, that she used to enjoy fannishness while at work, I don't know what was going on -- that's one heck of a coincidence: three genres, three eras, connected only as Awesome John Sheppard vids.

I should totally have asked the barrista on duty whose mix CD it was. I could've made a new fannish friend!

Today, in random browsing of youtube, I discovered the following gem of accidental1 oh-so-wrong slash:





[personal profile] thingswithwings and I laughed and said "OH GOD" a lot. We particularly liked the moment at 1:07. And at 1:56. And, really, omg.

1 This is billed as "Bridger/ Lucas friendship." I do not think that means what they think it means.

For reasons that don't need exploring at this juncture, I ended up finding and rewatching this segment of the Daily Show recently:




I love that segment SO MUCH.

And it reminded me that I meant to rec "All the Small Things" by Di. Yes. Really. A Colbert + Stewart vid to "All the Small Things." Doesn't it sound awesome already?

There's hilarious dancing, and weird performances, and running, and it's all fast cuts and cuteness. And it's really, really fun. This is going on the list of "things to watch when I'm feeling sad and blue," because my thoughtful, critical reaction to this vid is pretty much "\o/ YAY!"

When [livejournal.com profile] thingswithwings and I were watching a recent Smallville vid, that I billed to her as "awesome but kind of weird because I don't recognize half the clips in it," I pointed to a scene where Lex and Clark were on either side of a stained glass door panel. "Look! Separated by stained glass!" "Ah-ha," said [livejournal.com profile] thingswithwings, "on Smallville, slash is what happens when you take away the stained glass."* Then we agreed that this was a perfect description of the way the show works: just plain glass isn't enough. Then you can see what's on the other side!

(See, we're collecting Separated By Glass moments. These include, among others, the fabulous ice-wall in X2, and various people in hazmat suits, and things like that, but I also want to include Daniel in "Meridian." Because I think that Daniel/Death is really the SG1 OTP.** Daniel is separated from his death by glass! Daniel breaks through the glass trying to reach his desires! Daniel gazes longingly at ascension! He and ascension totally pass the broccoli test!)

Speaking of people who pass the broccoli test, we also watched a Once a Thief vid ("When I'm Up," by Lynn, Jill, and Kay, available here and determined that Vic and Mac have demonstrated on multiple occasions that they pass the broccoli test, but only when the broccoli is a gun. Or possibly a large knife, or a chainsaw.

Also, that vid made us want to go back and watch Once a Thief again, because seriously: trampoline fights. Chainsaw fencing. Stuck-on-top-of-a-just-married-car. Fighting with clowns. Moonwalking! Pop-up windows like we're in a VH1 music video! Two different endings to the series! Why Once a Thief is not in multi vids all the time for the hilarious visuals I don't know.

ALSO also, we were discussing what urban legends in Pegasus must be like. "Then he was passing by the gate, and three stones came through: tap, tap, tap" etc. And I said, okay, but the problem with an urban legends challenge is that there'll be a lot of stuff that's basically a direct translation of an urban legend into Pegasus. "Like," I said, "there's a serial killer in the backseat of the puddlejumper!" *pause* "It was John."

***
* This is also true of John Sheppard. For example, the stained glass door to the gym closing on John in "Hot Zone" -- Atlantis and the Ancients say "no, John, you can't have that, and you can't even see it." Just saying.

** Also, John/pain is totally the SGA OTP. And unlike other OTPs? This one is acknowledged by the camera and the writing all the time! (See [livejournal.com profile] thingswithwings's proof in her vid here.)
