Another FK vid almost ready

happy
First draft of my Janette vid is now complete. Yay me! Although I do keep going over my clips and I'm like, "There has got to be more Janette clips. Where are they all hiding?" I'll need to go over my notes and see if I missed anything. I'd love to get this one up before the end of the year but I guess we'll see.

Next up will be a Nick/Nat friendship vid to The Rapture's "Pieces of the People We Love". The track is great fun. It's extremely catchy and delightfully wordy.

And lastly, I've yet to really vid Nick (for shame! Lead character...hello!) and while I've got about 5 songs earmarked as possibles for him it looks like Moby's "Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad" will win out. I hadn't heard Moby in a long time and the song popped up today during my mp3 player's random setting. The other songs are great but I think this one will be a nice way to vid him. Lyrics are sparse and the music (piano, electronic beats and some fantastic Gospel choir vocal tracks) really lend themselves towards a Nick and his journey vid.

Can't wait to see the videos, and I'm looking forward to the one on Nick. I haven't listened to Moby in a while, myself!

Anyway, sorry I'm a little late responding to this because I haven't been online in a while!

Merry Christmas!

Oh your icon is like the awesomest of the awesome. I should have the original pullout somewhere in storage, lol.

Can't wait to see the videos, and I'm looking forward to the one on Nick.

I'm excited for that one too. It's ambitious because I want to do Nick justice. ::fingers crossed:: I suspect I'll be clipping that one and the Nick/Nat one concurrently.

I haven't listened to Moby in a while, myself!

I was surprised by how long it's been myself. I'll admit I only bought the CD way back when because "The Sky is Broken" was featured in the XF episode "all things" but I've really grown to like Moby even without the XF connection.

Thanks. The icon is originally made out of old wrapping paper!

And, "The Sky Is Broken" from XF was also my introduction to Moby!!! LOL

I am so deeply behind on everything that I just saw this post now, and realized that I haven't even told you that your story arrived safely! Or that I am very much looking forward to beta-reading it on New Year's Day (it's a federal holiday; can't make me work! ha! ~g~).

I really enjoy watching your FK vids, and it's delightful to read how you enjoy making them. Thank you so much for sharing.

You reminded me of a conversation I had with tv_elf about a song for a Nick vid, that I heard part of by accident on a country station; I didn't know it, but one line repeated and she did. Thanks for raising the memory.

Yay! I did wonder but with the holidays being so hectic I wasn't too worried. Plus I remembered that you were participating in the oldschoolfic challenge so I figured you be busy. :)

Take all the time you need. I spend so much time sitting on my stories that it seems silly to hurry up the beta process. It gets done when it gets done.

Aww thanks. They are so much fun to make even if they don't have a lot of bells and whistles to them. I've had so much fun discovering and absorbing the contributions of fans from yesterday and today and should I eventually loose the muse for FK I just want to leave a contribution to the fandom.

That's a really great memory. :)

Thank you for remembering! I knocked myself out, actually. Had to write outside FK, which I hardly ever do. Fingers crossed that it works and pleases its requester.

>"Take all the time you need."

In that case, I will take into this weekend, thank you -- have to be back at work on Friday -- but not longer. You deserve it back, and the list deserves to get to read it! I really love the creativity and canon moment.
