Hey guys...

First up: We all know how awesometastic Superwiki is right?! Well, voting is currently taking place in the SFX 2011 Best Blog Awards for the Best Franchise Specific Site. GO VOTE! It's an incredible website and is deserved of your vote. When I vid it becomes my SPN bible...

Speaking of vidding....

Sometimes I like to list what I have in mind. I like coming back to it (especially when it comes to fruition) to see what I had planned.

My current plans...

1. Finish my auction vid. (nearly there!)
2. Start my spn_cinema vid (SO pumped for this vid. No idea if I can pull it off, but I'm so excited with the music selections. (*hugs* maichan) I can't wait to sink my teeth in to it. But it's a biggie... so yeah. ..... lots of work ahead on that one.
3. I have a song I am DESPERATE to vid for Misfits. I have a song!! \o/ I can SEE the vid... I just need TIME for gods sake. *make this happen*
4. Every time I hear Lady Gaga's song "Born this Way" it makes me want to get hold of The Adventures Priscilla, Queen of the Desert footage and vid the hell out of it. Love the celebratory nature of this song. I think these two sources would go well together.
5. A crack vid that may just contain the words... "No one expects the Spanish Inquisition..." ;)

Then of course there's the: sex on legs Sammy vid (in conjunction with some meta I'm planning), a celebration of the women in SPN and a wincest vid to a gorgeous song deirdre_c posted a while ago.

Damn! I seriously want to do all of these.../o\


My daughter competes in the State Track and Field Championships this weekend. It's kind of a big deal. If she wins a medal (only needs one!) she gets to compete in Kuala Lumpur with the International Team. She has potential in shot put, javelin and the 100m. But. Crap!... it'll be damn tough. She's won a medal every year she has competed (the last 5 years)... but this might just be the one she doesn't./o\ (And yep.. I'm one of those nervous mums who paces on the sidelines...). Still. I'll be proud no matter how she does.


My husband's learning to speak Japanese. Via podcasts. I do love this man. :)

I'm listening to Nina Simone as I type this. *adores* Sinner Man always makes me think of SPN for some reason - Sam in particular.

Lastly....my thoughts are with quite a few of my flist who are suffering a loss at the moment *hugs*

I know about big deal comps - good luck to your daughter - hope she kicks ass!!

Japanese is hard!!!! But would be very nifty to know.

I'm liking the sounds of your vidding futures!! Especially the sex on legs Sammy vid...and now I'm curious - what song did deirdre_c post??

Week 8 next week!! After that's done then it's like only 3 left plus 2 days! WOOHOO!! Can't wait for holidays!!
18th-Mar-2011 02:07 pm (UTC)
Thanks hun. I hope she does too. A lot of pressure on this weekend...

The thing is I'm not sure of his motivation is to learn Japanese. It's just something he wanted to do and now he keeps giving me phrases and it makes me smile.

I so wanna do sex on legs Sammy. Haven't got a song yet but I want to demonstrate Sam's passion when it comes to sex.

This is the song that Dei posted. The animation is lovely. I pictured a separated boys vid coming together at the end - lots of schmoopy hugs etc...

Week 8!! It's unbelievable. Where the hell did that go?!
18th-Mar-2011 01:48 pm (UTC)
Whee! All of those vids sound AWESOME! *gimme hands*

Good luck to the kid. I know she'll kick butt. <3
18th-Mar-2011 02:13 pm (UTC)
I just wish I had endless amounts of time...I'm sure you know how that feels. :)

And thanks hun. She's a good kid and for her sake I'd like to see her do well. She's trained really hard this year and it would be great to see the pay off... but it's all learning experience I suppose - no matter what happens.

18th-Mar-2011 02:18 pm (UTC)
Wait a minute. You're doing a non-SPN vid!

I'll believe it when I see it...
18th-Mar-2011 02:27 pm (UTC)

Hey! I have done one other non SPN vid! But yeah... only one.

Though I really do have to stretch my vidding wings. It's just that SPN is so much easier than other sources...

But! They are on my list. So it has to happen.
18th-Mar-2011 02:32 pm (UTC)
That's funny cause the last two vids I did were from sources I've never watched (the movie MacGruber and the TV show V).

I don't really see that as a hinderance as I know what I'm looking for and it doesn't really take that long to find it.

But of course, I may be a deranged mutant also...
18th-Mar-2011 02:43 pm (UTC)
You are indeed a deranged mutant... haven't I mentioned that before? tehe..

I find it easier if I know the source well. I've only watched Misfits once so it's not so easy to recall where I saw stuff that would be appropriate for the images I imagine. Which means lots of scrubbing through footage - which I find incredibly tedious. With SPN I (generally) know exactly where to find what I am looking for.

Misfits has only had 2 seasons so not too daunting.
18th-Mar-2011 02:58 pm (UTC)
It's always easier when you know the source. My Doctor Who vids go quickly cause I remember the scenes I'm gonna need. For these last two I had to scrub everything several times.

But I find it an interesting challenge when I come up with a good mashup but haven't watched the program. I wonder, can I still make it good? Such was the case with the V/Earth Final Conflict vid. They both had the same plot and I wanted to see how well I could mash them together.
18th-Mar-2011 02:21 pm (UTC)
That's some list! Hope you get the time to do all of them.

Have voted - thanks for the heads up, I often miss things like this.

Fingers crossed for your little one, times like this are very hard for you pacing on the side lines!

Japanese eh? Cool, such an intriguing language.

There is something special about Nina Simone - often think if I should do her version of "Don't let me be Misunderstood" for Sam - just can't seem to settle to vid though right now, but it's on the list for when I do.
18th-Mar-2011 02:39 pm (UTC)
It's some list eh? Damnit! It's my goal this year ... so maybe I'll get some done..

There is indeed something very special about Nina. I would love to see a vid to her. Can't ever recall seeing one.. but there's a few that would work. That one in particular... :)

Wish your daughter good luck :)
19th-Mar-2011 08:25 am (UTC)
Thanks hun.

Luck must have been with her today. She got a bronze in Javelin with a 3m PB. \o/

Hey hun! Yay for more de-lurking. :D

I get so antsy when I here a song I want to vid NOW.. very rarely do I have the time to jump on it and vid straight away. I figure if I make a list I have some sort of plan in mind... :)

My daughter did her first day of comps today. She came 6th in triple jump (which is kinda amazing as it's not really her event) and got a bronze in Javelin. \o/

Hee... and to be honest, I'm not sure what my hubby's motivation is for learning Japanese. Just the challenge of it I think... :)

18th-Mar-2011 05:27 pm (UTC)
YAY spn_cinema!!!
And OMG, a Priscilla vid to that song would be amazing.
19th-Mar-2011 08:30 am (UTC)
YAY! :)

Oh you agree on that film and that song? Well then, I'll try even harder to make it happen one day then.
18th-Mar-2011 05:41 pm (UTC)


And I DO truly love the auction vid!!!! My hands were just hurting from typing on the iphone yesterday, so sorry. It's very sly and funny, and has a sense of heart.

I think the song works really well for the subject matter(I won't spoil it with names here), and furthermore IT WAS TIME. I swear I've never even seen another vid featuring this subject matter, which is kind of crazy if you think about who's left standing.
18th-Mar-2011 05:42 pm (UTC)
Good luck to your daughter! I hope she kicks it in the ass.
19th-Mar-2011 08:35 am (UTC)

Hee.. I know! If I could just find the right song (mix of sweet and HOT!) I will be on it. As I type up this thing I keep thinking it needs a vid to go with it. :)

And thanks hun. I'm thrilled you do. Your feedback was awesome and I'm working on those tweaks. Though - the beginning now has some kinda big change. As in... an added POV (/o\).... still playing but I'll get your opinion before I post anything.


Oh and... my daughter did kick it in the ass today! \o/ She got a bronze medal for javelin. Which was rather amazing as she had to pull out a 3m PB to do it. She's been throwing around 26m all season and today she threw 29m. So yay... she's in the state team for KL. :)

Thanks sweetie. <3

I think I suggested once before that you should clone yourself to get all the vids done... :P
I'm certainly looking forward to them. ^_^

Oh, and "Konichiwa!" to your husband. :D

19th-Mar-2011 12:05 pm (UTC)
Yes! A clone would be awesome! :D

Hee... he certainly surprises me with the things he decides to do sometimes.


Hope you're good hun.
19th-Mar-2011 12:51 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I'm good. *hugs* Just been drawn into the inside worlds a lot the past few month. Been astral travelling and things with my soul brothers. :D
I'm changing. Sometimes I feel a bit like I don't even know who I am anymore.
I could do with summer. Warm weather, swimming in the lake and such. The spring came, gave a quick wave and took off again. :( Hope it will be back soon. :)
Or maybe finally finding a new love and partner after long 16 years of keeping to myself would be nice. (One can hope :P)
I actually miss diving into the SPN vidding world, this total devotion I used to feel, but I feel like I'm outgrowing it some and it leaves me a little sad. I'm reaching out for something new inside me or in my life but I don't even know what it is. So, I'll have to wait if my life brings anything new or just lets me get older. :P

Different subject: My wry sense of humour sees you with a T-shirt, with the pics of your new school teachers, and the writing on it says: "I asked for Sam and Dean and all I got was them." :P

Anyway...♥ *hugs* ^_^

20th-Mar-2011 06:08 am (UTC)
*smish* something "new" is always exciting. Finding new love would be particularly exciting. ;) Vidding is certainly difficult if it's not with total devotion. I know I couldn't continue unless I felt this. I keep expecting it to go away. And then I'll think of an idea and bam! I want to vid.

And I want that t-shirt! (hee... imagine going to school with that on *g*). I do smile whenever I see Sam. Though it also makes me think how massive Jared my be in RL. This guy is this shy puppy dog who is a giant!


19th-Mar-2011 01:41 pm (UTC)
a celebration of the women in SPN

I'm sure I'll enjoy any vid you make, but I'd especially love to see this!

Also, congratulations to your daughter and I'll keep my fingers crossed for her next events!
20th-Mar-2011 06:03 am (UTC)

I've been wanting to do a vid like this for ages. It's always a matter of finding the right music. :)
