Recommendations for vid show?

Sorry to be so absent lately. I've been lollygagging about many things, I just can't seem to get my head into functioning space these days. Which is sad because there is much TV to write about! Awake (wonderful), Southland (hmmm), Justified (AWESOME), and of course now Community's back (hallefreakinlujah), and White Collar just finished its season (conflicted). Also I am totally into Happy Endings and having a love-less than love with Revenge. Waiting and waiting for Fringe, which I would write about except that I feel too stupid to discuss it. Sometimes it gives me a headache.

Also I have a new foster puppersons, a little charcoal colored schnauzer who is super cute and looks kind of like a dark version of Gromit.

But the main thing I wanted to talk about is a plea for help. I volunteered to VJ a show at Vividcon called Weird Science. It was my idea, and now I'm in a panic because I'm realizing the vids I was thinking of probably wouldn't work! What I was thinking of was vids about skience (like Fringe, X-Files, House that sort of thing -- the goofy stuff that passes for science in tvland), about mad scientists (from Frankenstein to Walter Bishop and everyone in between), crazy skience run amok (like, well, the movie Weird Science), mutants and slayers and monsters and all that. Maybe there's even a good Spock vid out there... I just don't know. Do you?

Feel free to point me in the direction of some vids for this show, otherwise I'm going to be in serious hot water! I said in my notes that it's not about 'ships, but I'm totally open to vids where the 'ship is part of the skience (and if anyone has a Walter/Gene vid, I'm all over that one). So help me out, flist and droll! Tell me about some Weird Science vids!

If "science of deduction" and mnemonics count, then
Mind Palace, by humansrsuperior (Sherlock BBC) might work.

Oh, that's great! I was kinda resigned that as much as I can't stand Sherlock (I know! don't kill me), I needed to have that in there if I could find one that wasn't a shippy or character study vid (which I was worried about), and this totally fits the bill. I think this will go great, thank you so much!

What about the "Enhance" video?

OK, that is seriously funny. I had never even heard of it. So, so hilarious.

I just recently reposted my Fringe as Weird Science vid called Fringe Science.

SO FUNNY that I mention this and you already have a vid. So, after the nightmare last year, would you even be willing to consider sending me a file? Or is it just too much to bear?

I feel good that two years on a row I actually had a vid in the style you were looking.

Just point me to the site that describes the format they need. I know it was weird for me but I'm up for it. :)

This is so much fun let's do this every year :P

New Math? :D

The first character I thought of was Scully, and then I thought, didn't sockkpuppett actually make a Scully vid long ago to "Weird Science?"

astartexx and xandra_ptvmade a whole bunch of awesome X-Files vids recently, including these two:

I don't know of specific vids offhand, but maybe there's something for Big Bang Theory?

Blinded Me With Science, I believe. That was one of the ones I was thinking of initially. Thanks for the links to the Scully vids...DLing now!

Looks like this played Club Vivid last year, but it's a sort of awesome Fringe/time&space travelling Take That crossover.

That is a really cool vid -- I've never seen one quite like that! I wish I didn't have so many Fringe vids, but that's definitely going on the alternate list in case one of the others is taken.

You could always do Charmax's "She Blinded Me With Science," though that may not be the kind of thing you're looking for.

Hey Kiki -- I sent you a couple messages in various forms, but I have a feeling I didn't have good addresses or something. I wanted to use We Are All Connected for my vid show, and I was wondering if you would be able to send them the demuxed file if you have it? The instructions are here: http://www.vividcon.com/instructions.shtml though I imagine you already know that!
