Finally, I’ve decompressed enough information to pass on my vid recs from Vividcon, which I just attended in Chicago. Here are just a few that have popped into my head. More later, probably.
“Intergalactic Friends” by dragonchic. Smallville set to a Beastie Boys / Dandy Warhols mashup.
Inherent awesomeness of the music aside, I really loved how this vid evoked the entire Superman mythos, pulling it up and out of the context of Smallville itself, and connecting it to the entire history of the character. Shirtless Clark and evil, plotting Lex also help. Michael Rosenbaum is the best Lex ever cast, no competition. (Sorry, Kevin Spacey.)
“Seven Nation Army” by Charmax, to the Matrix, I Robot, Doctor Who, BSG, and Terminator.
This vid really knocked my socks off by drawing the connections across so many franchises, and I really shook my booty to it at Club Vivid.
And the most inexplicable award goes to…
