Behold, vid recs!

Dr Who, Clocks Some really good timing and clip choice here.

Dr Who, Exile No going home. Nicely bittersweet, and probably spoilery.

DS, Out Here makes me want to watch DS again and reminds me how much I like Benton Fraser.

DS, Icebound Stream is a brilliant combination of Fraser, Victoria, and polar bears. If you haven't seen it already, you should download it right now.

DS, Pavlov's Bell Very well-done Fraser/RayK vid.

DS, Needful is another fantastic Fraser character vid. The song choice is dead-on, and it brings the whole series together wonderfully.

Firefly, Hallelujah It may just be because I saw it first, but this is my all-time favourite vid to this much-vidded song. A love story, about Mal and his ship, and all from one episode.

Sports Night, Goodnight Hollywood Boulevard would be spiffy-keen just because it's a good SN vid, but with the emotional impact figured in, ouch. (But that's a good ouch.)

Supernatural, The Way We Get By, just plain fun.

SGA, Welcome Home I didn't think I liked all-instrumental vids much, but this is a incredibly well done combination of clips and timing. The song choice struck me as odd for about twenty seconds before I realized it was perfect.

SGA, Last Resort is a good Rodney vid.

SGA, Stress is another good Rodney vid, and is much fun.

SGA, Creep takes a song I thought really didn't fit with the clips and convinces me otherwise. Irony lives!

SGA, Mr Jones & Me is a commentary on Atlantis and dating. Hee!

SGA, When I Grow Up, Teyla gets to be kick-ass, which is always good.

Seeing as I'm getting ever-shorter here with my editorial-ish comments, I think I'd better stop for the night and leave the fic links for later. Enjoy!

Fic, vids, and some assorted stuff at the end. The usual.

*

Little Things "They lie together on the hard little bed with the sheets that don’t turn back. Waiting; waiting for the roof to move." Skin-crawlingly creepy as only SF can be.

Requiem "When it's over he wanders out into the cool evening air, hand pressed over his mouth, eyes hot and wet." Rodney goes to a concert and is moved. Which doesn't quite capture the eloquent grief in this short snippet.

Passing"You can pass, can't you?" Rodney said, finally. "You can pass for normal."

Temporary Engagement When CEO Elizabeth Weir needs someone to pose as her fiance, she turns to her administrative assistant, one Radek Zalenka... ([livejournal.com profile] sga_flashfic and the Harlequin challenge strike again!)

Fearless, Mindless Fancy John is Mulder to Rodney's Scully. It is an AU, there is a haunted house, and it's all even funnier if you've seen way too many haunted house documentaries. (Like the truly cheesy Creepy Canada...)

*

Vids:

If I Were Gay made me laugh. A lot.

Wraith Wraith Bug is cracktastic. (But you should watch the Llama Llama Duck vid first, as linked with the SGA vid, if only to get some idea what the words are.)

Hallelujah as an SGA vid, and even though the Firefly one is still what I think of first, this is an awesome vid in its own right.

*

More fic that's not SGA:

Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy slash, Second Best Arthur learns that "not if you were the last man on earth" means exactly that.

Due South/Harry Potter crossover
How to Spot a Rabid Animal Two wolves, no rabies.

Firefly/Buffy, Her Vorpal Sword in Hand, River/Cordelia.

Angel, The Role of Fred Burkle Will Be Played by Charlize Theron "It was a good thing Harmony was sober, or things might have gotten out of hand..." Fred/Harmony. Fun!

*

Misc stuff:

Offbeat New Tokyopop series. I love my shoujo/shounen ai manga! Where else can you get taglines like "Not Your Usual Boy Meets Boy Story..."? I think I'm going to have to pick up at least the first volume of this...

Things I’ve learned from British folk ballads "Don’t ignore warnings. If someone tells you to beware of Long Lankin, friggin’ beware of him. If someone tells you not to go by Carterhaugh, stay away. Same goes for your mother asking you not to go out hunting on a particular day. Portents about weather, particularly when delivered by an old sailor who is not currently chatting up a country maid, are always worth heeding." It goes on from there...

CBC on Demand Free CBC shows online! Including The Newsroom and two seasons of Kids in the Hall.

I've still got links from while I was away, and the couple days before that, and also, a con report. Which I may actually write sometime befoe next summer. (Actually, I'll have to do something with it soon, since I was the official taker of quotes all weekend, and I'd hate it if they went to waste. Mwah.) Also, [livejournal.com profile] mockingspike has filked [livejournal.com profile] queenzulu's con experience. It's called "I'm Sorry, Larry Niven," and is genuinely more fact than fiction. Especially the bit about the naked swimming.

.... because I wasted half the afternoon mucking about looking for vids. Well, actually, I was originally looking for new wallpaper. (Anybody got a favourite site I should know about? I am easily distracted by the shiny-pretty, whether it's media-based or not.)

Mamoru's vids are great. My favourite are "Falling For the First Time," "Head Over Feet," "Comic Book Heroes," and "I'm Losing You."

Pertifity A couple of good ones here. I like "Holding Out for a Hero," because it's all Rodney-centred and ironic. (And.... I haven't seen much SG-1 but was that Teal'c dressed as ELVIS?)

MartoufMarty has a whole bunch of stuff up. I've only watched a few so far. The "Atlantis Under Siege" vid (to "Counting Bodies Like Sheep To The Rhythm of the War Drums" by A Perfect Circle, which is one of [livejournal.com profile] troutkitty's favourites) was good, and though Evanescence is incredibly-totally-completely overused for any kind of vid, "Taking Me Over" is interesting insofar that it's a Teyla/Weir vid. And you have to scroll down to the bottom, and watch "Steve." The choice of footage is kind of weak in the middle, but there's only so much Steve footage to work with. Nonetheless, the concept made me laugh. Out loud. A lot.

Lilas has some more good SGA BNL vids ("One Week" and "I Know"). I don't know why SGA and BNL go so well together...

The vid nominations for [livejournal.com profile] mcshep_awards05 look like they've got a bunch of good stuff, though I haven't been through them all yet.

And now I need to go make myself a Steve/Shepperd OTP icon because I'm evil like that.

I have a large amount of tabs open. (dumps armload of links into lj) Wheee!

Here's an interesting post about Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell.

[livejournal.com profile] brighidestone has been writing fic snippets: Firefly, SG-1 and American Gods, Farscape and Buffy, and a Wrinkle in Time universe.

Speaking of Firefly, here's a cool Simon vid. And Laura Shapiro's remastered a bunch of her vids! (Including the X-Files vid "Rook." And the Scully vid "More than Human" is incredible. And Due South and Buffy, too! You will need to email her for a password, but she's very obliging.

I just finished reading this Due South Hockey AU last night, and it is fantastic! She's reworked the universe beautifully, and almost all of the important recurring characters from the series show up in very cool ways. And there's all these cool footnotes, and quoting from Roch Carrier's The Hockey Sweater. (And oh dear lord, the bit about Victoria is truly gut-wrenching.) Ray is simultaneously a slut and a closet case, which works surprisingly well. And Fraser's relationship with Mark Smithbauer is um, very interesting. And Dief, oh Dief.

The original Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy game is up on the BBC's website in a new, graphic-y version! It still plays like a text-based game, though. I foresee myself wasting many hours on it.

It's old news by now, but the cover art for the new Harry Potter book has been released. Also, J.K. Rowling has posted The Ballad of Nearly Headless Nick to her website.

Another good way to spend many hours: the New York Public Library's just opened their digital gallery. Very cool stuff, like
The Floating World: Japanese Color Woodcuts by Kitagawa Utamaro
, a 'friendship book' from the circle of Percy Byssche Shelley, Medieval and Renaissance Illuminated Manuscripts from Western Europe, Asia and the Pacific Rim in Early Prints and Photographs, and Turn of the Century Posters.

Some older links kicking around my desktop: about the word "fag", a cool HP snippet about Sybill Trelawney, and a study on how much a SF/F writer makes.

Things I need to do this weekend, in no particular order: Finish reading [livejournal.com profile] guyindkny's book. Finish book for review (it's Canadian historical fiction this time, and, er, doesn't stand up well to the Jane Yolen book I just finished). Catch up reading GN-LIB (graphic novels for libraries) mailing list posts, and make appropriate revisions to graphic novels for libraries workshop. Get a large chunk of outlining and referencing done for online YA resources workshop (registration permitting, both of these are running at the beginning of April). Finish cover letter for job posting I desperately, desperately want. Do laundry. Iron large pile of clothes. Brush the cats. Go to friend's birthday party tonight, roads permitting. Go over to parents' tomorrow so my father will stop nagging me about doing my income tax.

In the next ten minutes goals: Pry [livejournal.com profile] troutkitty away from Zuma game. Shower. Find food.
