I don't usually watch a lot of vids, but sometimes I run into cool stuff that must be shared. I want to make sure everyone has seen these! *g*

Supernatural

A Child's Prayer, by brihana25
Dean and Mary, to Pink's "Ave Mary A." Brilliant use of a song that should not work but does, completely; spoilers through season 3, and leaves us at a place that "In the Beginning" only confirmed.

Life on Mars

Back There Someday, by nancyblackett
Sorry, flist, this is only for people who have seen the final episode of series two. Otherwise 1) you won't understand what's going on, and 2) you'll have the ending utterly spoiled for you. Don't do it. The rest of you: this is a beautiful vid, some fantastic juxtapositions along with some obvious ones, but the song saves it from anything like mediocrity. (Yes, "I'm Going to Go Back There Someday" is one of my favorite songs ever.)

Doctor Who

Movin' Right Along, by nancyblackett
Anyone recall this song from The Muppet Movie? It makes for a brilliant vid featuring all the Doctor's incarnations and most of his companions. Because...yeah. That's exactly what the show is like. :) This vid makes me so happy.

Ooh, mine too! Although I like Gonzo's version best. This vid gives it kind of an interesting new spin, though, doesn't it?

Heck, yah! Muppet Movie love! That movie is one of my favorite things in the history of ever! As is Doctor Who, so that vid is AWESOME PLUS AWESOME. Also hilarious. I want to watch it over and over and over. :)

Hey! Are you an LoM fan? Somehow this did not ever cross my mind (although now that I think of it, I seem to recall you posting about Ashes to Ashes when that first started airing).

Yeah, I like Gonzo's version best, too. In fact, nancyblackett claims that this vid was inspired by a vic by darthculf, which uses the Gonzo verion. I think it's not quite as good a vid, but they're cool to watch one after the other, to see the different choices and similarities.

And that Doctor Who vid is possibly my favorite vid ever, now.

I don't know about being an LoM fan, as the show didn't really arouse my fannish instinct all that much, but I did see the whole thing, and liked it. (Ashes to Ashes, alas, was a rather different matter.)

And that Doctor Who vid is possibly my favorite vid ever, now.

I've just gone and downloaded it. And recced it on my LJ. :)

Ooh! Hang on! I just realized I have the perfect icon to use at this point... :)

At first glance, your icon made me go WTF??? (I doesn't help that he looks a bit like Nine from the back like that.) And then I got it. Awesome. :D

Hee, yes, it's a bit subtle. According to snowgrouse, who made the icon, he is watching an episode that was on at exactly the right time. :)

The Doctor Who/Muppet one is brilliant. I was laughing pretty much the whole time, and the editing is perfect. Thanks for recommending it!

I know! It just shot to the top of my favorites list--just made of all sorts of warm Doctor-y fuzzies. *snuggles vid*
