Dear Festividder,

First off, thank you for making me a vid! I love vids, and quite honestly I would be happy to see a vid in any of these fandoms. I have suggested music for some fo them, but please don't feel bound by what I've suggested, and I have no qualms about oft-vidded songs, either.

20th Century Boys series [Movies]
+ Arcade Fire, "Suburban War"

This is an epic manga, and I don't like the movies as much, but I still liked them quite a lot. Basically anything would make me very happy, but I especially like the interplay between the future and the past, and the urban-ness of the present scenes. I would also love a song from a Japanese artist for this vid, although the Arcade Fire song is the first one that leapt to my mind when I saw the first movie.

Moonrise Kingdom [Safety]
+ Arcade Fire, "City With No Children"

The thing that got me about the movie is that the adults are mostly less rational than the kids; the song suggestion gets at that element of the movie, or at least it does in my head. Regardless, I really liked the movie, and the various screwed-up families it portrays, and how they are somewhat less screwed up by the end. Anything getting at that would be awesome.

Byzantium (2012) [Movie]

I adore Gemma Arterton, and I like vampires, and I really liked this movie. *throws up hands*

A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night [Movie]

I guess lady!vampires is a stealth theme in this Festivids request set. I loved this movie, and I loved the black and white, and…yeah.

A Series of Unfortunate Events (2004) [Movie]
+ something from The Magnetic Fields, for obvious reasons

The movie did the books almost no justice, but I loved the style of it all, and also particularly Jude Law as Snicket, puttering away alone on his typewriter, telling a terrible tale. I'm a sucker for omniscient narrators who are as trapped by the story as everyone else, what can I say? Erm, yeah, anything you come up with would be great. Obvious suggestion aside, other music would obviously be awesome too!

The Bling Ring (2013) [Movie]
+ Barenaked Ladies, "Shopping"

Does what it says on the tin. Who's afraid of a LKBV? Yadda, blah, teenage ennui, and it's not like I'm not there for that too, but I'm also just pretty into the obvious joke that the song would be with reference to the movie.

RPF - New Horizons (Pluto flyby mission) [Other, Web]

I put this one seventh because it's the one that's closest to my heart. I read the National Geographic coverage of the Voyager missions and then watched Star Trek: The Motion Picture at a very impressionable age, and the rest was history. TINY ROBOTS ALONE IN SPACE BOLDLY GOING WHERE WE CAN"T GO YET.

Thank you, Festividder! I am super excited to see whatever you come up with, for serious.

<3 and vids,
