Okay, after a couple of hours saving in different formats and attempting to upload it various places, imeem has finally accepted a crappy version, but that's better than nothing, so here it is, until I can figure out how to make iMovie get a good balance of picture quality/frame rate and size (watch this space for that). Plus here it is in divx format (about 44MB), so good quality without being huge, but not supported by imeem so that's out. >:(

Content Warning: I did include a couple of quick shots of some of the implied/attempted rape scenes from both, the most graphic ones coming from Athena's interrogation in "Pegasus" (the aired version; I'm told the deleted DVD scenes are more extreme, but haven't brought myself to watch yet). It wasn't triggery for me, but others' mileage will obviously vary.

WHATEVER AT LEAST IT'S DONE. Next time I won't choose such an epically long song. Maybe next up I will do the ridiculous Buffy vid that goes from Xander's pep talk in "The Freshman" to the Gaston song. Or, since I've still got all that BSG footage lying around, maybe the "John Saw That Number" vid.

OH FOR FUCK'S SAKE

IT HAS BEEN FINISHED FOR OVER AN HOUR, BUT EVERY DAMN SITE WHERE I MIGHT POSSIBLY UPLOAD IT IS REFUSING TO LOAD.

I AM GOING TO NUKE THE ENTIRE FUCKING INTERNET, I SWEAR TO GOD.

ETA: Over an hour later, it looks like imeem is finally going to stop being ridiculous and accept it. Knock fucking wood.

ETA2: LOL J/K JULES WE'RE TOTALLY GOING TO RUN THROUGH THE ENTIRE THING AND TELL YOU IT'S SUCCEEDED, THEN TELL YOU IT FAILED WHEN YOU GO TO DOUBLE-CHECK, HILARIOUS RIGHT?

THIS WAS MY WORST IDEA EVER OH GOD SOMEONE PUT ME OUT OF MY MISERY.

Man, though, I find Leoben and Six more adorable every time. I know this is probably not the response I am supposed to have, but I just want to pinch their little cheeks.

UGH GUYS WHY WON'T THE VIDDING ELVES JUST COME IN WHILE MY BACK IS TURNED AND FINISH THIS DAMNED VID. I feel like I need to get some characters besides Kara, Caprica Six, and Athena in there, but everyone else is boring. :( I mean, Leoben is made of lulz and Helo is the only decent person in the bunch, but they're featured by virtue of being important to the ladies' arcs. Ditto for Baltar, but I don't really care about him much. And I like Roslin and Adama well enough, but holy god do I get bored with them quickly. Plus it's a very action-oriented video and they don't get as much in the way of action scenes, Roslin in particular. I'll go into Razor a bit for stuff from the first war, which will also help fill in some spots in the intro as well.

If it takes too long, maybe I'll aim for getting most of it done tonight, and just finish it tomorrow and aim to get it in just under the wire. The main pain in the ass bit is going to be the repetitions of the chorus at the end and polishing up the intro. The former because I don't want to go the lazy route and just use footage from the episodes I've already ripped clips from, and the latter because of all Bruce's mumbling and pausing. Maybe footage from both of various riots for the bits where you hear the audience screaming?

Seriously, if the damn vidding elves would get the fuck over here this would be so much easier. I've given them ample time; I am not too impressed with them right now. >:(

So this meme that everyone and their mom is doing!

1. Anyone who looks at this entry please post this meme and their current wallpaper at their LiveJournal.
2. Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper.
3. Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had on.

DW does not seem to like displaying the whole thing, so here is a link (it's 1280x800).

On why I am using it: I assume that one day this picture won't delight me. But the other day I realized that this has been my wallpaper for almost a year now, so I think I can pretty safely assume that day is not going to be anytime soon, because even after all that time, I still just make a ridiculous :D face whenever I see it. IDEK, GUYS, THEIR STUPID FUCKING FACES. I think I need to go listen to "Bobby Jean" a million times now.

The Multiverse vid is coming along, actually. There's still more of the song with blank screen than with clips, but there's a decent chunk with clips and what I've got generally delights me so much that I'm reminded why I can never abandon vidding entirely in my heart. It still doesn't quite capture the scope of what the idea deserves, I don't think, but more and more I think nothing really could except the kind of subtle, sprawling fic epic that I am in no way suited to write. I'd forgotten iMovie's habit of shutting down on me just when I've gone a couple of steps without saving, though. That rascal. Good times. But on the bright side, I was also a day ahead in my mind, and since the eleventh (when my project is due) is Thursday, not Wednesday, that means I've got all day Wednesday to work on the vid, so that's let me relax a bit.

Also, lord, Adrian's line about how he made himself feel every death makes me laugh EVERY TIME. As does the expression on his face after the Comedian torches his map; it's the most ridiculously butthurt look ever. CRY MOAR, OZY, CRYYYYY MOARRRRR. ;_____;

Further: given how much I like Watchmen and adore Young Justice, I am really appalled at how long it took me to figure out that Cissie King-Jones and her mother are meant to be Laurie and Sally.

Unfortunately, I'm going to be spending most of my free fannish time this week on the vid, which means I won't be able to do much for the porn battle. :( One of you should go over there and write the Buffy/Middleman fic in my stead, because Buffy and the Middleman would be amazing. Or Buffy/John Winchester, but I think everyone should write that, so whatever.

Oh shit, I'm supposed to post my multiverse project on the 11th. I was sure it wasn't until the twenty-something. D: I'm still completely unable to figure out how to make it gel. The original plan was a vid, but I'm not really crazy about anything I've come up with; I basically have an awesome concept (BSG/Watchmen, with the world Manhattan goes off to create being that of Battlestar) that it's really hard to get a story out of. Fortunately vidding doesn't generally take me as long as writing a good fic. Lol going to spend all my free time in the next few days vidding. /o\

Maybe I can still work the graphic/collage aspect of it, actually. Hm, that might be something to consider while I'm at work today; if I can come up with a good plan for Manhattan-as-BSG-God in visual form, I might go for it.

ETA: And just when I'd resigned myself to using Hendrix's "All Along The Watchtower", because it worked even if it wasn't exactly what I thought I wanted to do, I remembered Springsteen's cover of "War", complete with an intro that I was going to cut but which is actually relatively short and, due to his talk of Vietnam and the transition to Reagan's America, makes a perfect transition between the two stories and also serves as a textual reinforcement of the "all of this has happened before and all of this will happen again" theme that's so central to the idea (and which is why I wanted to use a cover to begin with). HOORAY FOR THE PERFECT SONG, MAYBE THINGS WILL GO A LITTLE EASIER NOW. \o/

Tentatively making stuff public again. We'll see. Anything with stuff about my offline life stays flocked, but just fannish stuff I think I'm okay with posting for the public.

(Since I don't think I ever said more in a public entry than that I was going FO, basically: a couple months back, on a non-LJ site, someone I had previously considered a friend broke my flock.)

The current "that is so awful that it would be amazing if I actually did it" vid in my head is Laurie (Watchmen) and the various men in her life to "Womanizer". Also, the Big Dumb Crossover Of Self-Indulgence is at about 9.5k, and is finally starting to resolve itself into something I wouldn't be ashamed to share with the Tubes. I suspect that the final story will be in the 10k range, after I've cut out all the crap I had to get out of my system before I hit the zone and started to see what it was supposed to look like, but as it is, it's only about half done.

Speaking of vids, [livejournal.com profile] thedivinegoat is holding a Vid Bunny Exchange, where you suggest songs that might make good vids. Go play, or browse!

I've been watching S1 of SPN straight through to find footage for a couple of vids I want to make. I'm saddened by how much better it is in S1 in its treatment of women than in the later episodes I've seen. Which, considering it wasn't any better than most of the other shows on, isn't saying much, but knowing that it's all downhill from here once they start listening to fandom's opinion on what should happen to girls who come near the Winchesters is incredibly depressing.
