you know our hearts beat time out very slowly

Today we discovered that at some point in early December, some of our mail was delivered to the wrong address, oops. Luckily this doesn't seem to have had any significant consquences, EXCEPT that through the magic of mail carrier error, I get holiday cards in mid-January! On More Joy Day! Could there be anything more appropriate? So, enormous and heartfelt thank yous to [livejournal.com profile] meimmim, [livejournal.com profile] silentfire, and [livejournal.com profile] talitha78! And omg [livejournal.com profile] talitha78, that pin is so adorable! Thank you so much! :D

Also in honor of More Joy Day, I bring recs! Recs for vids that fill me with warm fuzzy feelings and/or make me roll around on the carpet kicking my feet and clapping like a seal! N.B. many of these are set to songs so unbearably catchy you will be earwormed within an inch of your life. I'd apologize in advance, but that's what makes them awesome! Sorted alphabetically by fandom (approximately):

Angel

Whatever by [livejournal.com profile] sockkpuppett and [livejournal.com profile] sisabet
This is Angel's West Hollywood lifestyle. (Whatever!)

Doctor Who/Torchwood

Everything's Not Lost by [livejournal.com profile] greensilver
The vid about hugs and hope! Will make your heart grow three sizes, hand to god.

Highlander

Just Like You by [livejournal.com profile] sockkpuppett
Duncan/Methos, SO MUCH FUN.

Merlin

10,000 Nights by [livejournal.com profile] mamoru22
Arthur and Merlin are failboats in love with each other, the end!

NCIS

The Clapping Song by LithiumDoll
Celebrating 5 years of "inappropriate touching" on NCIS \o/

Psych

"White" & Nerdy by [livejournal.com profile] talitha78
From the vidder's notes: Like Gus, I am a nerd of color in a society where nerdiness is frequently coded as "white." With this vid, I want to subvert that stereotype, and hopefully have some lulz along the way. I'll just say that a) herein the stereotype is completely, BRILLIANTLY subverted, and b) THERE ARE MANY LULZ ALONG THE WAY.

Stargate: Atlantis

Another Sunday by [livejournal.com profile] jescaflowne
I think it helps if you (like me) have a 100% unironic love for We Built This City on Rock and Roll, BUT I suppose it could work even if you only love it ironically (if you don't love it at all, I'm pretty sure you're dead inside). Contains all the amazingly cheesetastic special effects. No, I mean ALL OF THEM. It is AMAZING.

Atlantis! by Clucking Belles
Oklahoma! As enacted by the population of Atlantis!

Rumble by [livejournal.com profile] astolat and [livejournal.com profile] cesperanza
West Side Story! As enacted by the population of Atlantis! THE QUESTION MARK OMG.

Stargate: SG-1

I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker by [livejournal.com profile] kuwdora
In the words of [livejournal.com profile] bipagan: It's a Sams-centric Stargate SG1 vid to the Sandi Thom song "I Wish I Was a Punk Rocker." Yes, that's right. I said Sams, with an extra s. It's from the point of view of all the alternate Sams and how they wish they were our Sam. And our Sam is the best Sam. Also functions beautifully as a love letter to the show and its universe.

Copacabana by [livejournal.com profile] barkley and [livejournal.com profile] destina
Idk, the best constructed reality vid OF ALL TIME?? Barry Manilow! Don't be a hater!

Fancy by [livejournal.com profile] barkley
Daniel Jackson might have born just plain white trash, but Fancy IS his name.

SG-1/SGA

Cartoon Heroes by [livejournal.com profile] mamoru22
Made from tons of footage from extras and behind-the-scenes of both sets, SO bouncy and joyful and RIDICULOUS and true to the genre and the spirit of the shows. I already warned for earworms, right?

Up

Fireflies by [livejournal.com profile] talitha78
Dug the Dog. From the vidder's notes: This vid is the very definition of self-indulgence. I wanted to vid a cute source to a cute song, and so I did. I'm not sure it hangs together perfectly, but I can't be bothered with the niceties of narrative structure when it come to this vid. It's about sunshine and puppies, people! SUNSHINE AND PUPPIES.

The West Wing

The Smartest People In The World [livejournal.com profile] sache8
A tribute to seven years of physical comedy, set to Chumbawumba's Tumbthumping. YES.

Real People

Say Hey (I Love You) by [livejournal.com profile] sdwolfpup (The Obamas)
I don't want to write a love song for the world / I just want to write a song about a boy and a girl. Barack and Michelle Obama: A Love Story. :D

Beautiful dirty rich by [livejournal.com profile] astolat (Adam Lambert)
Adam Lambert's American Idol experience as narrated by Lady Gaga. I've never even SEEN American Idol. There are sparkly stars and the most amazing movement/beat matchups, and the vocal stylings of Lady Gaga, but what REALLY gets me every time are his little thumbs at the end.

Multifandom

I Enjoy Being a Girl by [livejournal.com profile] absolutedestiny
Sydney Bristow, Starbuck, Veronica Mars, Zoe, and Buffy kick ass (like they do) against lyrics such as When I have a brand new hairdo / With my eyelashes all in curl, / I float as the clouds on air do, / I enjoy being a girl!

Make Your Own Kind of Music by [livejournal.com profile] barkley
An ode to all the characters we love who sing their own special songs (even if nobody else sings along). ♥
