I had a lovely afternoon with cupidsbow
today (yay! another WA vidder!) we chatted all things vidding and I'm excited to be part of a vidding panel at SwanCon
She shared a vid that was made for her for festivids
and IT IS AMAZING!!! SERIOUSLY! You HAVE to watch this vid. (It was recced to me earlier but I had only got a chance to watch it today). Staying Low
by the amazing hollywoodgrrl
. The footage is from the Alien films and it will BLOW. YOU. AWAY.
I saw a heap of other awesome vids which I will share if I can get my act together. I am playing catch up with a number of things at the moment. /o\
I watched Amour
last night. One of the most amazing and affecting films I think I have ever seen. No wonder it won the Palme d'Or and the Oscar for Best Foreign Film. It's absolutely beautiful - beautifully directed and acted. It's also incredibly heartbreaking and painful. The title is perfect for the subject matter. I couldn't stop hugging my husband after watching this. I recommend it to anyone who likes stories that explore the human condition.
Watched eps of Arrow
(I'm getting all the Oliver and Tommy feels now...<33), Haven
(an ep that reminded me of Mystery Spot (Groundhog Day). It was wonderfully constructed and I was having all the Nathan, Duke and Audrey feels) and the latest ep of Spartacus
(just when I thought it couldn't get any more brutal...*guh*. It was hard to watch, but still amazing).
And now...( a brief word about that stupid anon non-comm )
Yay, long weekend! Another day off tomorrow! \o/ I so need it...
