New Community vid

I have many, many things to say about VividCry 2011 (TM, [personal profile] sdwolfpup), but I am under a serious huge deadline and I have to spend some time thinking about how to express it. I had dreaded it in many ways, because I knew there would be a lot of crying around the loss of Sandy, but what I hadn't expected was the level of moving vids and conversations and other things that made this a... I don't know what the word is. Cathartic? Not quite right, because I'm still sad. Transformative? That might be, although there were a few minor unpleasantnesses that made me feel not entirely different from how I normally am. But it was very, very special, and I have things to say about that.

So for now I will post the first of my premiering vids from the con. I need to do some tweaking to video files for my Club Vivid premiere (and I also have some things to say about the theme I worked with), so I'm not sure when that will go up. I will just say that SDW is right and that one of the clips really should be changed, but I can't figure out what to do with it, so here it stays. I think the Viddler file is kind of bad, but I'll put streaming here anyway -- the DL is a lot nicer.

I had such a ball making this. I don't know that I've ever had a fandom with such a wealth of material to work with in just two seasons. I've wanted to vid this song for about 15 freaking years, since I first started vidding, and to have finally, finally found the fandom for it just makes my heart grow about three sizes.

It's a locomotive that runs on us.

Aw yay! I'm so glad. I didn't realize you were into the show -- that makes me so, so happy!

Thank you! I'm always glad when someone enjoys a vid especially when they have reservations about source. I'm so glad!

I am so glad you're home safe. Glad that the con had meaning. And I cannot WAIT to watch your vid, but I'm going to wait till I get the DVD set.

I missed you a lot this year -- it was a pretty emotional space, I gotta say, this year, though, and I was surprised. We've lost two people in our community in the past few years, and it's hard when it feels like we're a family.

It's a lot of loss to a relatively small group in a short time. Abby's been very much on my mind.
