If you have yet to see [livejournal.com profile] counteragent's new vid, 'Coin-Operated Boy'? Don't walk, RUN! I don't care if you hate SPN, have never seen the show, or whatever. It doesn't matter. This is like the most EPICALLY EPIC of all metarific vids EVER, that captures the comfort and insanity that is fandom in such an unflinchingly critical and pointed way, IT IS RIDICULOUS. My mind is still REELING from it 12 hours later. It will probably be EATING MY BRAIN for the rest of the week! That's how OMG, SHUT UP, ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? this vid is. NO, REALLY. SERIOUSLY.

On the flip side, my fannish heart just grew 100 sizes reading this new Sera Gamble Interview. Having such appreciation for a crew six seasons in is kinda unheard of for me, I'm not sure I know what to do with it. It's weird how the frustration depicted in the above vid goes hand in hand with appreciation with TPTB for me in this show. I think it has something do to with my disconnect between intellectually seeing something well thought out and working, and emotionally being denied what I want most as a fan based on what tv needs to be in order to keep going. If that makes any sense at all?

In LJ news, has anyone else been having problems with anons trashing old post? I've always kept anon posting on, because I've had non-LJers comment in score posts, asking questions and the like. But I've been having more and more problems with spam lately, and after some anon coming in and trashing my flisters' comments yesterday, I think that's my final straw. I can't tolerate my journal turning into some anon meme fan bashing. But my sincere apologies to those who got so baselessly attacked. That shit was so not cool.

In other news....

TWO INSTA-RECS:
FIC: ’Live For Small Horizons‘ [SPN S6, Dean, Sam, gen] by [livejournal.com profile] dotfic - “If Dean goes down, there's no one else who knows it all.” - This fic includes what might be my favorite fic moment ever in the history of fic. You think I‘m kidding, but no, really, I am not. It’s barely over 1k, yet by the end, I was BAWLING my eyeballs out. This is seriously some kind of record. The moment is seared into my skull forever. I’m seriously going to cry myself to sleep every night for the rest of the week over this. THAT is the kind of fic this is.

VID: ’Right Wing Radio Duck‘ [Donald Duck, political remix] - by way of laurashapiro - Donald Duck discovers Glenn Beck’s radio show, with razor-sharp, biting political commentary. This is AMAZING. I am seriously FLABBERGASTED by how amazing this is. That is how amazing it is. The amount of work put into this for it to work as slick and FLAWLESS as it does hurts my brain to even think about. Video from over 50 different Disney cartoons. Audio sliced from Beck’s shows. And the main commentary point that he builds up so well, and slams home so perfectly by the end. UGH, IT IS BRILLIANT. I want to send this to everyone I know.

AND A NOSTALGIC TEAR...
[livejournal.com profile] crackers4jenn reminded me that today is TEN YEARS since ‘Fool for Love’ aired. WHICH BY THE WAY is kinda the whole reason I exist on LJ in the first place. The last five minutes single-handedly rejuvenated my Buffy love, which four years later brought me HERE! Gosh I can’t believe that was ten years ago. I feel like it was just yesterday my 13 year old self came home early from a meeting and RAN to the tv to catch whatever bit of the Buffy ep I could. Where the hell does the time go. I feel old.

Sometimes I come across a vid that is just so simple technically, but is SO powerful in its perfect narrative organization and clip placement, that I just finish it with my mouth gaping and my heart pounding. I'm so amazed by these kinds of vids. I can watch them over and over again and never get tired of them because they just feel like they were made for the source, illuminating in such a special way pieces I loved but never put together quite like the vid does, and the source is never the same to me again. THIS is one of those vids, done by [livejournal.com profile] barkley for [livejournal.com profile] festivids, using Vienna Teng's 'Lullably for a Stormy Night' for Maria in The Sound of Music. I'll admit it, by the end, she had me tearing up. Honestly.

If you've watched and loved The Sound of Music over the years like I have, go, watch, enjoy Maria in all her simple glory, and leave the vidder some love. If you've never seen the movie, go and watch the vid anyway. I swear it will still get to you. It really is just one of those vids.

This list has been in the works FOR THE LONGEST TIME. Literally, the first thing I did when I finished catching up with this show was hunting down vids. But a couple different people had been asking about them lately and I figured, hey, I should finally post that list!

If there is one thing the SPN fandom is endowed with, its a wealth of absolutely FABULOUS vids. I started this list months ago as a means to keep track of them all, with a plan to post it as a master vid rec post when I got around to it. And the list has been growing consistantly ever since.


SPN Vid Recs Resource Post (contains 18 right now) )


This list is by no means complete. It's only the stuff I've been able to find in the past couple months. So if I missed any vids that you think are awesome and aren't on this list, please comment and share!
