Fandom is pretty cool

You know, just when I get to a point where I really hate fandom in general (like this whole White Collar thing, for one), something happens where I think, yeah, you know, fandom is pretty fucking great.

Sandy is having a really hard time and cancer is trying for a TKO on her, and it reminded me that we'd started a project a while ago, but now it needs to get taken over and finished by the rest of us in the Media Cannibals, and everyone's helping me figure out how to do that. And before my darling [personal profile] greensilver moved away, she and I talked about how she wanted to help digitize all our old vids (not remaster, just make them digitally available) and put them up on the interwebz so they are not lost to time. I emailed her and within, like, hours, she has set us up a site and and is making us some interfaces and just doing all this amazing stuff.

And [profile] melina123 has much better copies of the vids than I do, so I asked if she could make me copies, and she's sending them to me so I can work with greensilver on getting them up. Right now, I'm uploading the ones that have been digitally remastered that we've had on a disc for a while, many of which were done by [personal profile] justacat or [personal profile] killabeez for us, without us ever having to lift a finger.

Fandom really is wonderful. It does take a village to do anything, and our MC village is pretty fucking wonderful. More later when we have enough to go live.

How long have you been vidding anyway? When I hear people speak in terms like you do I feel like a noob or an outsider. I've only been doing this for a little over 2 years...

I think I met the gang in the early '90s, and started working on vids with them shortly after that. At first it was sitting on the couch, giving the thumbs up or down when we put in clips, but then I eventually graduated to pushing the buttons on the vcrs myself when Sandy wanted someone else in the group to be able to do the button-pushing. I think it was around 98 or so, because I remember that Buffy was in its second season (and LFN) when I started in on my first solo vid.

So, yeah, a long time.
