Taking a break from cleaning all the things (and yes, it is ALL the things; I am moving to the opposite coast in three weeks!) to post this--directly inspired by [personal profile] aria's post on the same subject: vids and AMVs that live in my head! This is not an amnesty, but they are being let out for a walk.

Revolutionary Girl Utena | Shoujo Kakumei Utena
U2, "Until The End Of The World"

Last time we met was a loaded room/We were as close together as a bride and groom
In the garden I was playing the tart/I kissed your lips and broke your heart

Oh, this vid. I've had it in my mind for years, and I really want to make it some day. The first verse is Touga, the second verse is Anthy, and how they both relate to, and love and then betray, Utena. It would be grand if I could do the thing properly. And I would steal the scene from the movie in which the roses spill out of the duel garden just to fit the line about "spilling over the brim," I am cheap.

Multi: Batman old and new, Bond old and new (?), Sherlock Holmes old and new, Trek old and new
Elvis Presley vs. David Holmes, "A Little Less Conversation"

A little less conversation, a little more action please
A little more bite and a little less bark/A little less fight and a little more spark

Basically this vid would be an ironic commentary on how the remakes of all three (four? I am on the fence about including Bond) of these classic fannish properties made them, to borrow the Olympic motto, citius, altius, fortius: faster, higher, stronger. Except maybe "harder" instead of "higher." If I could do it properly it would have lots of split-screens and ostentatious digitial effects to drive the point home, har har.

Tokyo Babylon & X:1999
Madonna, "Devil Wouldn't Recognize You"

It's like over and over, you're pushing me right down to the floor (I should just walk away)
Over and over, I keep on coming back for more (I play into your fantasy)

Even the Devil wouldn't recognize you, but I do

Sakurazuka Seishirou and Sumeragi Subaru and their dark, twisted love. I actually had the footage for this ready to clip when my hard drive died in 2008. :-( But thinking about it now I think it would actually make a better MMV, because a lot of the power of Tokyo Babylon comes from the fact that it's monochromatic.

Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood
Depeche Mode, "John the Revelator"

John the Revelator, he's a smooth operator/Time we cut him down to size
Take him by the hand, put him on the stand/Let us hear his alibis

Seven lies, multiplied by seven, multiplied by seven again
Seven angels with seven trumpets
Send them home on the morning train
Who's that shouting? John the Revelator!
All he ever gives us is pain
Who's that shouting? John the Revelator!
He should bow his head in shame

Yeah, this is about Hohenheim. And since I haven't actually seen most of FMAB, I can clip as I go, FTW!

Sherlock Holmes 2009

U2, "The Fly"

It's no secret that the sun is eclipsed by a moon/You know I don't see you when she walks in the room

A man will beg, a man will fall
From the sheer face of love
Like a fly on the wall
It's no secret

Every artist is a cannibal, every poet is a thief/All kill their inspiration, then sing about their grief

Let the dark go, I'm running out of change/There's a lot of things if I could I'd rearrange

This is the sad Holmes vid about how he loves Watson and Watson leaves him for Mary anyway. Sexual jealousy, yes! Or not actually, if you take the final scene in the movie at face value, but anyway. I'm actually of half a mind to wait until the second movie comes out for the possibility of more footage to work with, but probably not.

Can you tell I like Madonna? Actually I kind of have an in-progress epic project to make a vid or an AMV to all of the songs on her album Confessions on a Dance Floor:

"Hung Up" --
"Get Together" --
"Sorry" --
"Future Lovers" --
"I Love New York" -- I had the idea to make this one to Red Garden. I still haven't watched Red Garden.
"Let It Will Be" -- The Rose of Versailles
"Forbidden Love" -- Romeo x Juliet
"Jump" -- Y'know, I kind of think I could make a Middleman vid to this.
"How High" --
"Isaac" -- I had a Bleach AMV about Ishida planned to this for a while, but I would slit my own throat than make it now. So really I got nothing.
"Push" --
"Like It Or Not" --

I also need a song for one vid I want to make (though I'm not sure I could carry it off visually, even) about how Star Trek as a whole simultaneously elevates and stabs the Vulcan characters in the back. Seriously, do they not even understand their own concepts? Reading about what happens to the Vulcan characters on Memory Alpha is a constant recitation of And Then The Show Made Them Get Emotional To Prove That Humans Are Better, Duh. And it makes me want to stab people.

I'm also looking for a cracked-out song to make a TAS vid to. Hmm, I'm sure I have some in my library that would work. Maybe BNL's "Down To Earth"? Found! Two songs, actually. There will be lip-syncing, because I can.

Also, I will eventually make a Darker Than BLACK AMV to a VNV Nation song, because two great flavors really are better together.

The idea for the second vid makes me laugh because it's so spot on! I'd ve really interested in the FMA:B one too.

I have so many vids like this--half-completed or not yet begun--and just wanted to say how much fun it was to read your ideas, even when I don't know the songs or the source.

I'm glad!

And some of them are so much more likely than others, for various reasons. My goal is to have two finished by WisCon 35; we'll see.
