Ah, so the internet was slightly on the blink again this weekend, but what did I decide to do? Make a 55-second vid for [livejournal.com profile] sb_fag_ends, to Siouxsie and the Banshees' Playground Twist!! Spuffy, naturally; early S5 to be exact; warnings for quick cutting images.

Playground Twist.


Power's supposed to repel people, right?

Awesome vid and perfect song. And thank you for putting in the sentence that solves it - power's supposed to repel people - because I really love it when vids accompany well-defined thought I can grasp.

Heh, my main problem with vids is that my interpretation is generally very very literal. Poetry, too, I keep trying to solve poems rather than just experiencing them. (I had nightmares about The Wasteland. They were very literal and contained sleds and Istambul.) So very abstract vids can be pretty and well-synchronised, but I can't enjoy them fully because I kept getting simultaneously annoyed at them for being unsolveable and at myself for being unable to turn off the mathematician part of my brain.

In conclusion, thank you for your ironic ~italics~, they absolved me from much woe. <3

Note: this is why Handlebars remains my favourite vid ever - it's very very clear about what it's saying.

Mmm, totally, conversations rock, but I really enjoy just being a passive audience too - I'm still in the honeymoon phase where the very form of vidding delights me, and I am only a little bit ashamed that I know all of Scooby Road by heart. (Which, as far as I can tell has no deeper meaning to decypher than "Beatles rock and so does Buffy, yay!" Well, also some vague racial/gender/shipping commentary, but nothing too revolutionary. Except the Willow/Giles bits. I <3 the Willow/Giles bits.)

I adore multiple interpretations. And clearly bogus ones that work. [The Wasteland? Totally about Aragorn, Arwen-as-hyacinth-girl, Numenor-as-Unreal and all.] Emotion-as-solution doesn't quite satisfy me though usually, except in Plath's Tulips for whatever reason.
