Vividcon is in, like, a week and a half! *GLEE* Who else is going? Can I get a show of hands?

- Within the last few months, I've finished rewatches of Buffy, Angel, and Farscape. Now I'm pondering my next big pop culture move.

- [personal profile] jmtorres is our roommate now. It is awesome. She brought oh so many books.

- I really, really, really want to make an album-vid of Farscape a la Luminosity's Scooby Road, but finding good, consistent albums that are also salient to the subject matter throughout is *hard*. This is especially true since I only really discovered music in the era of MP3s, so I don't keep a lot of albums in my head.

- I'll have DVDs for sale at the orphan vids table at Vividcon again. Nothing new, just a repackaging of Volumes 1 and 2 from last year as a single unit. If you have one and not the other, let me know and I'll bring a few single-volume of each as well.

- Poking at a couple different vids here and there. Finished one vid, then decided it wasn't awesome enough, so I unfinished it.

- Went to see Puppet Up! on Friday. Puppet improv from the Jim Henson Company. Dirty, dirty dirty puppet improv. It was hilarious.

- Running Fiasco again at the con. Interest posts at Dreamwidth and Livejournal. There's still plenty of room on both Thursday and Sunday nights.

That's... pretty much everything I can think of right now.

I am in the middle of a Farscape episode right now and keep thinking how much I want something like this.

I will be at Vividcon, and apparently I will be doing anything possible to enable your Farscape album-vid, because IT NEEDS TO EXIST.

I love David Bowie and am very familiar with his early work. I'm not sure I can totally see Ziggy for this, but I could be convinced. (:

Yeah, IMO Farscape can sound like a lot of different types of music, but glam kinda isn't one of them. Now, if you wanted to use Scary Monsters...

I won't say it's perfect, but...

We should talk! IMO one of the things that makes Scooby Road work is that most viewers know those songs and there's nostalgia value attached to them, as with Buffy itself. It'd be great to see a Farscape album vid that uses similarly well-known, well-loved music. Although what's comparable to the Beatles I don't know. The Rolling Stones?

Awesome. I am so in love with this idea.

Thinking about this further, I kinda think an American band or at least an American-sounding one might work best, depending on how deep into John's POV you want to get. The Eagles? Steve Miller band?

I imagine there are plenty of people around here who could give you a shipping assist. (:

Hotel California, true! Hee. I agree that the music is going to drive a lot of your creative choices, so obviously whatever you pick should be something you adore.

If it is at all a help, http://seekingferret.livejournal.com/tag/aotw is my tag for reviews of albums that I listened to on my commute for a week for my Album of the Week project.

Also, I flipped through my collection of SF concept albums. I don't know Farscape well enough to have a great feel for it, and I certainly don't have any feel at all for how normal people choose vidsongs, but you might want to check out Alphaville's "Afternoons in Utopia" concept album, if you like thoughtful and spacey if sometimes cheesy synthpop?

I am so jealous! Have a great time (what am I saying, of course you will) and watch out for my CVV premiere. I finally made that 80's mashup I've been banging on about since 2010.

Definitely seeing you there! :D

KMFDM is what's springing to mind for an album vid, but that's probably because one of these days I need to use their song Down and Out for a Farscape vid.

Based on what very little I know of Farscape: David Bowie?

Oo, yes, this. Ziggy Stardust would actually make a realllllllllllllllllly awesome Farscape album vid collection.

I'm not feeling Ziggy, but I am going through my other Bowie LPs and seeing what pops.

::Raises hand::

I'll be at vvc, but you knew that. :)

Now that I've thought about it a bit, I have to agree that David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars album could work as a Farscape concept.

We should talk music at lunch on Saturday. Nothing makes me happier than hooking people up with good music, and I have TONS OF IT. :)

I took a listen to Ziggy and it's not quite gelling for me, but I'm going to go through my David Bowie LPs and see if there are other possibilities.

And yes, I would love to talk music. Music is my one major weak area as a vidder.

I'm really looking forward to Fiasco again but would prefer to be in the audience this time. :) I think some of my roomies were hoping to play... they should be letting you know, if they haven't.

Who are you rooming with? I assume that Milly is going to be with you.

It's me, Milly, Eli, and Whitney.

Yaaaaay! I was worried you weren't making it because of Germany.
