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.

dragonchic made my favorite vid from last year's Club Vivid with Wanted - Break Teen Spirit in Four Minutes, and she's made another amazing vid this year with Appleseed - The Last Firstborn.

(I haven't seen Appleseed and this vid makes me want to; it also makes me want to see dragonchic vid Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex a lot)

I can just tell this will be my new "rewatch in the morning right before going to work" vid.

Thanks to everyone who has been posting such excellent Vividcon recs and con reports! It's definitely another bumper crop this year, with lots of innovative, ambitious, self-reflexive, and just plain fun vids.

For the moment, I'm just going to rec one vid: [livejournal.com profile] bananainpyjamas aka dragonchic's stunning Wanted vid, Break Teen Spirit in Four Minutes. The editing is just fantastic -- some of dragonchic's best work, and that's saying a lot. I haven't seen the movie, and now I'm really tempted to, but I doubt that it can live up to the vid.

I should tell you that this vid is incredibly addictive -- I've watched it at least twenty times* already, and it's gotten so I can't leave home in the mornings without another fix viewing (luckily my boss is on vacation, so I don't have to explain why I keep arriving late to work). So don't say I didn't warn you!

* Er, come to think of it, it's actually more like thirty or forty....
