I used to create fan videos for Buffy and Angel, back before the luxury of hosting on YouTube, and post them on my old fansite. I LOVED making videos and watching videos. Most of the songs I would hear on the radio would remind me of something I had watched. And then I simply ran out of the time and energy for it (I was planning a full-length soundtrack type thing using Weezer’s blue album and “Only in Dreams” was going to be the best Bangel video EVER).
While I’m still not ready to pull out my video stuff, I rekindled my love for the fanvids when I discovered that people were making them for, of course, Twilight. I couldn’t believe that a book could have a video – and a couple of them are REALLY good (phoenixproductions05 is the best by far). From there I was hooked again and I’m getting ready to have a full-on Buffy/Angel vidfest over the weekend to catch up on everything I’ve missed over the last couple of years (yeah, it’s been a minute).
Anyway….the one thing I think I can do, and need to do because everything slips through my mind SO FAST, is start a category to at least capture the musicial inspirations as they hit me – I’m calling it “Theme Songs” for now.
That way I’m not the only one in the world who’s stuck forever more with an image of Buffy and Spike making out in Smashed when “Take It Away” by the Used comes on the iPOD.
