Thank you everyone for your mp3 advice! I manage to find copy of the song I *really* wanted last night free, but I don't really mind paying $1 for a song either. I'll look into the options over the next few days and see what fits me best. I really appreciate the quick & informative help!!! *huggles*

I just caught my second book ever about half an hour ago! Okay, so it was slightly arranged in advance and the person releasing it private messaged me and told me when & where (and had asked me what I like a few days before!) but it's still thrilling to actually find a book in the wild and take it home for my very own. I look forward to reading it (It's Midnight by Dean Koontz- my boss & his son are OBSESSED with him, but I haven't read any of his stuff yet) and then releasing it into the wild again! Happy happy! *bounces*

Last night I started and today I finished another fanvid. I haven't had the time/space on my computer lately to vid, and luckily the software cooperated with me for the most part. There were a few major snags but nothing I couldn't work around. It's a hurt/comfort Queer As Folk Season 4 Brian video to U2's 'Sometimes You Can't Make it On Your Own' and I had a lot of fun. I think it turned out all right. There are a few tiny snags I don't like, but otherwise I think I like it. Heck, I just enjoyed an excuse to revist the nummy h/c moments ;-)
Anyhoo, it'll take me about 2 hours to get it online, so I'll do that tonight when I won't be tying up the phone lines. If anyone wants to see it, let me know and I'll send you the link privately.

Just finished a Gimli/Legolas nonsneezefic. I can never quite manage to get them into bed together for sex. *pout* I tend to set stories just after sex or end with them going off to do it. This was my first attempt at really coming close... but it's still not technically sex. LOL Ah well, I shall keep trying. One of these days I'll manage it. Though it does inspire me to write a fic where they keep attempting it and are frequently interrupted... just to make fun of myself...

Made a fanvid as well... to episode 2 of Veritas: the quest. Cute angsty boys... boys out in the cold snow... boys getting hurt and saving each other's lives... is it any wonder this is my favorite episode?

As always, just drop me an e-mail if you want the link.

OHHHH! New HP trailer on tv just now! The new 'something wicked' one with the puppies(as wolf and dog) and Hermione getting thrown around by the Whomping Willow! Nice timing! Yay! I love seeing commercials on tv for it now :-) heehee

Okay... it's almost 9am... time for sleep...

Music vid

I finished another Highlander music vid. I know most here aren't interested, but as I announce when I finish my other vids, I didn't want to exclude. And I find this one particularly funny, so I thought it was worth mentioning. It's to the episode 'The Immortal Cimoli' which, though it has some interesting issues within it, is the episode with the WORST immortal in the history of immortals in it. Sad thing is, I started a club about him, er, 10 years ago or something like that. LOL Had members, too. Gods it was horrible. ANYWAY, all embarrassment aside, the vid's funny, and so I thought I'd declare it finished here. If anyone doesn't already have it and wants the link to my fanvids, you know the drill, e-mail me and I'll e-mail it back to you.

I just made a new LotR music video (only took me a couple hours from idea to end product, not bad!)

It's an Arwen/Aragorn video (imagine that! I played around with a het couple for once! lol) done to the song 'If You're Not the One' by Daniel Bedingfield. I was was trying to figure out what channel the hockey game was on and on the TV Guide channel they were having an interview with him and played his new songs in the background- he's a very new artist from England. So I downloaded two of his songs (think I might actually buy his CD to be nice, heehee) and that song made me think a lot of Aragorn for some reason... I thought first about Legolas/Aragorn but halfway through the song I had to do Arwen instead. And so the vid was born.

YAY! Happy me! My second finished LotR music video. And I learned how to do blurry transitions last night, so the credits at the end look a little better than usual, too. It was a good excuse to try it out.
ANYWAY, if you're interested, drop me an e-mail or post with your e-mail and I'll send you the link(s).

Finished my first QAF music video! YAY! Oddly enough, it turned out to be mostly Brian/Justin (Stuart/Nathan) even though I wasn't really going for that. It just fit the song and the pilot well. It's a mix between the US and UK versions and supposed to be a bit humorous in approach and content. Twas fun to make. Wish I could have captured the stuff myself- quality isn't the best in a few spots.

If anyone's interested in seeing it, drop me an e-mail or give me your e-mail and I'll be more than happy to send you the link. I've got to limit public access since it's a big file that I'm hosting myself (it's a Windows Media Player file)

heehee! Finished my first LotR song vid. It turned out much better than I'd anticipated, actually! It's Frodo/Sam and I actually had a hard time deciding what to do because of too much cute footage :-) Oh darn :-) heehee
I'm thinking of a Legolas vid next... or possibly a Legolas, Aragon, and Gimli video to something fun like 'It's Raining Men' heehee! Ah, procrastination... gotta love it...

If anyone want to see it, just lemmie know and I'll toss you a link. Same goes for my Snape video to Billy Joel's 'Innocent Man' the ending of that one needs to be rerecorded song-wise and I'm thinking of changing the very last clip but the vid is otherwise intact.

Just to make another annoucement so it doesn't get burried... it's still up for the next few days. I'd love feedback :-)

Male Sneeze Music Video

Enjoy :-) You'll need winzip(or similar) and Windows Media Player (cuz I dunno how to convert vids to other formats... sorry!)

I'm toying with a Stargate SG1 sneeze vid... it's the only fandom I know which yields enough sneezes to justify a short vid dedicated to that... only I don't know all the episodes in which Daniel sneezed... the pilot, I know. And 'One False Step' I know... but I can only guess as to others... so if anyone knows, that would rock. Is Solitare_AU out there somewhere? :-)

Ha ha! I did it! :-)
My first ever sneezing music video. Pretty much all male (there's one female at the end, but that's cuz I wanted Peter Wingfield in the vid- LOL) And tis meant to be funny (as you might guess when you hear the song)
Male Sneeze Music Video

You will need Winzip and Windows Media Player to play this file

I am having trouble finding a host because of its size. So this will be up/available for a few days only until someone points me to a place that lets me upload movies that are over 10MBs in size. Please download it and watch it rather than just opening it and streaming, due to my space/bandwidth issues.

All clips were NOT created by me- they were digitized mostly by absolutely WONDERFUL people in "the community" including LibertyBelle, Hypnos, NiceGuy, Steeve, Sir Sneezalot, a very nice anon woman and many many others. A few clips are from already digital materials I found through searches on the web/programs. So I apologize for quality problems, but they're all good enough to get the idea... and as this was just a fun vid, don't worry about that. :-)

I made a new music video... an HL one to The Ramone's song 'I Wanna Be Sedated' for the Highlander episode 'Deadly Medicine' It's rather funny.
So far in my attempts at all HL episodes... I've got a lonely 3:
1- 'The Gathering' & Endgame vid to Return to Innocence(Enigma)
2- 'Family Tree' vid to Father of Mine(Everclear)
3- 'Deadly Medicine' vid to I Wanna Be Sedated(Ramones)
Only about 120 more to go, roughly. heehee

Also worked a little on my next LotR fic... or one of them at least. I'm starting to hit a wall with it... I'm just repeating things over and over LOL I dunno... I've got a lot planned and two more days full of adventures for them in the story... it's just filling in the between-the-action parts without jumping too much or repeating myself that's getting a bit difficult.
But it's got a nice teaser:
I could feel it coming on, amidst the heartache and the sorrow. A constant throbbing at my temples, and a discomforting chill running the length of my skin. The grief had let it through, that all-encompassing grief which pulled and twisted so much that I could not speak, could not react. The hobbits fell to the ground sobbing. Gimli had struggled in anger for revenge. The men, the warriors, thought themselves too tough to cry, but both blinked back tears and their voices trembled. But I… I did nothing. When every thought in the world should have passed through my mind, it was clouded by the dark sorrow. Even when Aragorn spoke my name, it barely registered. Overcome by grief, consumed by it, I did not even notice my ailment at first.
I'm going to try to get it done in the next week at the latest... but have a number of papers to work on at the same time *grr*

I finished my first fanvid (fan music video) tonight! It's a Duncan & Conner from Highlander vid and explores their relationship a bit using clips from two series episodes and the 4th movie (Endgame)
I'm actually REALLY proud of the timings and movements and scene choices for certain parts. I did it to Enigma's 'Return to Innocense' so it was very interesting to work with. The quality isn't that good as I had to go by materials other people created, and just cut them as I wished. But I'm proud of it all the same.

I ADORE fanvids... I must have a hundred on my computer right now... I'm toying with the idea of a Snape vid to Billy Joel's 'An Innocent Man' next. *G* The song doesn't really fit all the time... but it would be a fun adventure methinks.
