OKAY PEOPLE. SOMETHING OF IMPORT HAPPENED TODAY. Chaila lived up to her promise, and fulfilled my challenge and has finished her turn driving the VIDWAR.

This means two things. Firstly, you should all go watch her latest vid, part two in her quest to prove that Lady Gaga is relatable to all things Sarah Connor, especially if those things involve repressed humans and stylish robots, and "John Henry as the product of an ill-judged romance between Weaver and Ellison as Ellison's revenge for Sarah's rejection. With a fashion interlude!"

Bad Romance by [livejournal.com profile] chaila43.

This also means, I AM NOW DRIVING THE VIDWAR. I have been challenged to vid three Sarah Connor Chronicles vids. WATCH THIS SPACE. BECAUSE IT WILL BE FILLED.

Since I was too lazy to actually start on the next vid in my EPIC CONQUEST OF CHAILA in our VIDWAR, I instead updated my website.

It is still dirt simple, but now dirt simple across multiple pages, divided by show, even!

It was very, very hard not to add a page counter, some grainy picture links and an embedded midi file you can't stop from playing in the background.

VICTORYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!

I AM FAIRLY CERTAIN WAR SHOULD NOT BE THIS MUCH FUN.

[livejournal.com profile] chaila43 has just posted the second in her three responses to my first VIDWAR: ROBOT APOCALYPSE salvo, and it is a pair of unusual ship vids based around Sarah, the first is Sarah/Cameron, the second Sarah/Ellison. The first is not a pairing I ship, the latter is, but both vids are fabulously edited and well worth your time.

Don't Tell Me About Mercy by [livejournal.com profile] chaila43.

I think the strength of both of these vids is their ability to draw on the way the show portrays these characters even when they are not romantically involved: these are not AU vids. It grounds them and creates fascinating levels of complexity.

Take the Sarah/Cameron vid, for instance. "Liar/Thief/Ghost" is electric in its opening sequences in the way it draws your attention to how physically aware of Cameron Sarah is at all times. It's an observation that's enough to set a ship on fire, but also provides fascinating insight into Sarah in general. This vid is all darkness and stolen glances and discomfort. The simplicity of the editing is betrayed in the tangle of clips, hands fumbling for John, for guns, but never for each other - except via proxies.

In contrast, "Mercy Street" shows both Sarah and Ellison in a haze of dreamlike imagery, both rhythmic and fluid at once. Their fever dreams of mercy are paralleled with beautiful twinned shots of their journeys throughout the show; again, enough to set a ship on fire, but noteworthy even without the slightest hint of romance.

Pretentious recs aside, go watch them, they're worth it.

(I think this is the part where I admire my opponent's strategy before taking her APART in my counterassault, right? RIGHT? :D)

So, some of you may remember VIDWAR: ROBOT APOCALYPSE?

Well, seems like little Chaila's trying to step up to the plate and play in the major leagues... And even though her ROBOT APOCALYPSE show got canceled before it passed adolescence, I gotta say, girl's got GAME.

So seriously, guys, check out her pair of vids - Suicide Future. Derek. John. Two characters I don't care that much about BREAKING MY HEART with insanity (the former) and loss (the latter). Although frankly some might watch and reverse those two descriptions. They're a brilliant pair of vids about two men, broken simultaneously by displaced pasts and inevitable futures, with two different responses. Derek feels lost and irrevocably damaged, while John feels damaged and irrevocably young, and I love them both.

And so will you.

Really, go watch it. Having to counter-counter-attack something so awesome has me nervous. (Not really. This is just me trying to lull Chaila into a false sense of security. Honest. *twitchy eyes*).

Songs of the Unforgiven is a cycle of five orphaned Battlestar Galactica vids. They are all short (between two and three minutes). They are all designed to stand alone as well as working as a series (and in couplets) so please, feel free to watch and leave feedback on either or both.

Songs of the Unforgiven marks the launch of VIDWAR: ROBOT APOCALYPSE. Can YOUR robots sing creepy lullabies to their disturbed offspring, Chaila? CAN THEY?! You better HOPE they can cus this is it: YOUR MOVE, KID.

Title: The Unforgiven Ones [Ellen/Cavil]
Video: Battlestar Galactica (2003)
Audio: The Unforgiven Ones // Crash Test Dummies
Summary: Ellen sings a lullaby to her son about his siblings, his parents, and what they've done.
Editor's Notes: As always, my thanks to my heroic betas. I also very nearly credited this as Ellen&Cavil rather than the usual 'ship designation of Ellen/Cavil because it seemed less creepy and also because this is really a vid about their relationship in its entirety, it just happens to include creepy motherfrakking. But I figured...whatever, it is creepy and I should just get over myself and own it. Ellen/Cavil it is!

Title: Suicide Planet: The Future [D'Anna]

Audio: The Future // Leonard Cohen
Summary: Give me absolute control over every living soul, I've seen the future, brother, it is murder.

Title: Suicide Planet: No Future [Dee]
Video:: Battlestar Galactica (2003)
Audio: A Thousand Kisses Deep // Leonard Cohen
Summary: I made it to the forward deck, I blessed our remnant fleet, and then consented to be wrecked, a thousand kisses deep.
Editor's Notes: And this is the youngest of my orphans, at least in terms of finally finding a song; I didn't find this one until October 09, though I'd been planning to make a vid like this for far longer, just with a different, crappier song that I wasn't 100% happy with. I'm glad, now, [livejournal.com profile] cyborganize kicked my ass into finding something better. And as always, thanks to my heroic betas.

I declare war. I declare VIDWAR. I declare VIDWAR: ROBOT APOCALYPSE.

And I declare it against Chaila. Get down here, lady, cus it's on. IT'S ON LIKE DONKEY KONG. AND OTHER SMACK-TALKING EUPHEMISMS.

Starting tomorrow, I'm gonna post vids. Five of them in three days; two pairs and a standalone. "Songs of the Unforgiven," - a roundup of orphaned vidbunnies, stuff I always meant to vid but never managed. BSG stuff. Half an attempt to validate my reading of the show, half an attempt to clean house before I move on. My Final Five.

(To be clear, I do not mean ever. I have some collabs to start/finish; at least one more Big BSG Vid I'd like to make. I don't mean the endpoint; I'll have Daniels and hybrids yet. I just mean an endpoint - I mean an All Along the Watchtower cliffhanger and Ellen waking up in a tub of goo.)

Join me, Chaila, I said. Clean house too!

No, you said.

Anything Battlestar Galactica can do, you said, The Sarah Connor Chronicles can do better.

Fine, I said. If you won't join me, it's WAR. VIDWAR.

So here's your challenge:

Anything BSG can do, TSCC can do better? Prove it. Prove it, and then make me follow.

Take "Songs of the Unforgiven" and remix them all via the Sarah Connor Chronicles.

If you manage that? I'm your girl. Your move. Your challenge. You name it, I'll vid it.
