FESTIVIDS IS HERE! I'm so happy and excited! There were 192 vids posted altogether, and two of them were for me. That's right, TWO! This is the first year I wasn't defaulted on AND the first year I got a treat, so it's double awesome! And the vids I got are truly spectacular. Like, seriously, I could not have flailed any harder without breaking something.Curiosity
, a Boy Meets World Topanga character study that focuses a lot on her relationships with books/studying and Cory. Topanga is one of my favorite characters of all time. She's such a wonderfully smart, snarky, developed
female character who was a PERFECT role model for me as I grew up watching this show. The song was just perfect for her and them and me and everything, and you guys, this show is SO long. Topanga/Cory is probably one of the most (if not THE most) intimidating ships to vid, due to length of source and ultimate 90s OTPness. I never thought in a million years that I'd actually get this vid. Ask everyone I talked to about what I thought I was getting for Festivids. "I probably won't get Boy Meets World because it's sooooo long and who is crazy enough to vid the most lengthy/popular OTP of the 90s? *sadface*" BUT THIS VID EXISTS NOW. IT'S RIGHT THERE, AND IT'S THE BEST. YOU SHOULD WATCH IT.
The other vid I got was Blackbird
, a Nowhere Boy vid. Okay, you guys, let me tell you about Nowhere Boy. It is a movie about John Lennon's angsty teenage years, leading up to him meeting Paul and forming the Beatles. If you don't know about my feelings about the Beatles, I will tell you that I have Let It Be tattooed on one wrist and Imagine tattooed on the other. I am obsessed and always will be. I was there when this movie was announced. I was there when the script leaked. I cried like a baby at the script a year and a half before the movie was released. When the movie was released in the UK, you know I was refreshing download sites daily for six months until a rip FINALLY fell into the interwebs and into my clutches, and then I cried some more. I seriously waited two and a half freaking years for this movie and it was so worth it. And now I have a VID to it, and it's to one of my favorite Beatles songs. And it's GORGEOUS and it's about John and then it's about John and Paul and it's so gorgeous and emotional and brilliant and just encapsulates all of my feelings about John and Paul and The Beatles in general.
I'm definitely going to post recs, but I'm doing it kind of differently than usual. I'm going to wait until I see all of them (which is normal) but I'm not taking any notes this time. I'm just going to rec the ones that were most memorable to me. That way, my recs list might not be 60 vids long. :D I have ~60 left to watch though, so the recs should be up by the end of the week (reveals are on Feb 2nd).
ALSO, I made three vids. You should totally guess which ones are mine, if you don't already know. No one has guessed me for anything yet, and I'm really curious! :)
