Observations

Tuesdays feel so empty now that there's no new Pretty Little Liars to look forward to until, what, January maybe? I'm almost tempted to read the book series that it's based on, just to find out what happens next, but I think that would probably be a bad idea. Better plan: buy an external hard drive and start making my silly little vid for the show.

This would be a good time to catch up on TV that I'm behind on. My choices are: the second half of the most recent season of Damages, the second season of Sons of Anarchy, the third (and fourth?) season of Skins, and the third and fourth seasons of Friday Night Lights. My decision would be much easier if any of the above featured killer robots....

I can't decide if I like the new season of Jersey Shore. To be honest, the first season started losing me after the initial four episodes, but then the finale pulled me back in. I do still like the overall look of the show and the ridiculous opening credits.

I haven't come close to watching all the new vids from VividCon yet, but I have seen tons of excellent ones. Today's rec: [personal profile] luminosity 's gorgeous, haunting Last Year at Marienbad vid Caged Bird.

What did you think of the finale reveal? Under-foreshadowed, I thought, but I'm willing to roll with it if all goes well.

What's your song for the vid?

I agree about under-foreshadowed re: Ian, though I'm hoping that it turns out that he's not A. and/or not Allison's killer (e.g., nor the only guy she was seeing when she was murdered). I'm not sure how it would make sense for Allison's killer to be the same person as A. -- at least, I'm not sure what would motivate the same person to a) kill Allison and b) torment her friends a year later while posing as Allison. What would Ian have against Allison's friends?

(I know, logic! And somewhere along the line, I'm sure the answer re: motives will be surprise!psychopath. Still, I'm hoping that the A. mystery persists even after the killer is locked up.)

I'm still stuck on the idea of using Hilary Duff's Stranger for the vid. Though if I wanted to go angstier, I amuse myself by contemplating using Muse's Map of the Problematique (though I figure that obsessive24's excellent and disturbing Rules of Attraction vid is the last word in vidding that particular song).

...though on third thought, I could see vidding PLL to Tantric's Breakdown....

Do you have any song suggestions?

Not really, though super-dramatic would be good. Maybe Tori Amos, Cruel or Jackie's Strength.

Ooh, Tori Amos -- I could definitely see possibilities with Cornflake Girl....
