vid rec: Hallelujah (SGA)

This vid--and now, by association, the song by Rufus Wainwright--keeps breaking my heart. sanj had a review, calling it "one of the most complex and ambitious vids in the collection..." Those are great words to describe it. She's also right that there are two vid storylines here--the Rodney and John relationship, and the story of Atlantis. And I love that. This is one of those vids that makes my chest ache.

This and other vids can be found in this post.

Now I need to see other SGA vids; I've been collecting VVC vid posts in memories and looking in particular for mentions of SGA vids, but I don't recall seeing anything else. Recs for any online vids are welcome here. :)


silviakundera just made a post about her David Hewlett love, a little more Hewlett in my life, providing a list of movies that she's Netflixing to see him in. In the giddiness of shared love, I posted what for me is a rather long comment on my own DH viewing.

That man is fucking pretty--and I say that in full recognition of the snoot and the hairline and the pugnacious chin (and the tiny adorable swag underneath it) and the lopsided mouth, all of it--and no one better say otherwise around here or I'll deck them. Or hyperventilate in outrage. Something like that.

icon cracked pairings meme, 1

Make a list of all the characters in your icons. (Although you may have more than one icon of a single character, they only go on the list once.) Alphabetize it. Take the first two people on the list; that's your first pairing. Second two people; second pairing. Etc.

This cracktastic meme of liviapenn's is already one of my favorite memes of all time. I've put every entry that I've seen so far into memories. Anyone who wants to post more links in comments, please do!

So, um, I was kind of wired and manic and bored tonight. You'd probably be unnerved to know how much time I spent merely *preparing* this meme, creating several different pairing lists based on variations of naming conventions and inclusion logic. The lists were eventually whittled down to one, which was chosen based on a coin flip:
"The list that doesn't contain actors, and assigns the most relevant characters to any actors not otherwise easily identified by character, with only a few miscellaneous icons left out."
Shut up! And don't sprint away from me when I'm talking to you!

After outlining my methodology, I did get around to writing. Two! I have two pairings written. I do want to write the rest, but I'm not sure yet whether I've shot my wad on these. So to speak. I'm going to hold off posting the list itself. I think maybe the insanity should be measured out in small doses.

My fevered and wordy efforts aren't intended as one-upmanship of other posts. From what I can tell, I'm just self-medicating my brain with distractions.
