vid rec of the day: The Dangers of Overshipping AKA Battleflag: The Brian-Justin Mix

It's old, but it never gets old. I could watch this a thousand times.

Battleflag: The Brian-Justin Mix* by sisabet (WMV)

(Main QAF Vid page here)

She calls it "messing around" but it's one of my favorite vids of all time. One of my favorite things in the universe, actually. I love that it resets the B/J prom dance--originally "Save the Last Dance For Me"--to Battleflag, and actually makes it work. I love the initial musical slide that ends on Justin's face as he sees Brian arrive, and the parallel slide later that ends on his face as Brian watches him through the window in his hospital bed. I love the club dancing and the prom dancing, with the intercutting to Brian's deadened face, and just all the sex-saturated moments between them that are set to the beat.

* As her site says, "This show is rated R. You must be 18 to download these vids. If you're not 18 and you download them, you will burn in everlasting hell for lying to me and deceiving my website. THIS is your warning. There will be no more. Turn Back Now. Don't blame me. I don't make the rules. I don't think children should go to hell."

(Note: This vid has MAJOR spoilers for QAFUS S1 and early S2, which I've kind of hinted at above & mentioned in comments.)

And now that I've given you all those warnings...go, watch, yes. Apparently I have to stop watching the vid and go back to work.

I feel so Seattle.

I was getting off the bus on my way home from work, and over the course of five seconds, I went from, "La la la, must cross the street, boy, my bookbag is heavy, la la la" to "Hey, I'm going to get a nose ring--RIGHT NOW!" I literally swerved, heading over to the conveniently placed tattoo and piercing parlor a block from my house and went in and signed a piece of paper and had a guy named J.J. shove a sharp piece of metal through my nose. It's actually a stud, not a ring. It's awesome.

I'd been thinking about getting one for years, but hadn't quite committed to the idea.

It must be spring.
