jenndubya: go-buster girls (SS / Yoko + Escape)
Fandom: Tokumei Sentai Go-busters
Subject: Escape
Song: Disturbia by Rihanna
Summary: "Am I scaring you tonight?" The best villains are bad ass, sympathetic and complete monsters all rolled up into one.

While there are multiple vids that I've been working on (at varying stages of progress), I really needed to just take a break and do something completely different. So I got out a random number generator to decide on a season, put my iTunes playlist on shuffle, and just picked a combination. (Because I did not decide on the very first random combination, there were at least a dozen.)
Also, the deeper I got into the vid, the more I was reminded of how much I love Go-busters and why it's in my top five seasons of sentai. (Yasuko Kobayashi, why are you such a good writer?)

jenndubya: this is crazy (PR / Mentor)
Fandom(s): Kamen Rider (OOO, Wizard, Gaim, Ex-Aid), Power Rangers (Time Force, Ninja Storm, Mystic Force, R.P.M., Samurai, Dino Charge, Ninja Steel, 2017 Movie), Super Sentai (Megaranger, Gingaman, Timeranger, Dekaranger, Kyōryūger, Ninninger, Zyuohger, Kyuranger), Dino Force Brave, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon
Subject: Various
Song: Various
Summary: Your friendly neighborhood dealer is back with more toku crack!
AKA Attack of the Kamen Riders because they only had 3 parts in the last one and overtook the majority in this one!
Warning: Minor spoilers for a couple shows, but the only one that is really spoiler-ish out of context is Kamen Rider Ex-Aid.

I'm currently watching Kamen Rider OOO (8 episodes left), so that is really prominent in my brain and I was constantly jotting down things to add as I was watching the show. And I also re-watched the Wizard net movies recently because they are such a gold mine for comedy.

jenndubya: (PR / K)
Fandom: Power Rangers Dino Charge
Subject: Kendall/Shelby
Song: Conversations With My 13 Year Old Self by P!nk
Summary: Whenever Kendall looks at Shelby, sometimes it feels like she's almost looking in a mirror.

What is this? Didn't I just finish a video yesterday?
I admit, I started this pretty much immediately after I posted my last vid and stayed up entirely too late working on it last night. But it's something I've been thinking about doing for months now. I've just had other things that I wanted to get done first.
Although, my Dino Charge Volume 1 DVD can rot because, while every other volume was pretty much fine this time, those episodes I have such a hard time editing because of stray frames popping up out of nowhere.

jenndubya: tenga on the prowl (PR / Tenga)
Fandom: Power Rangers (Original Flavor)
Subject: Tommy/Kat (with minor Tommy/Kim)
Song: I Can Love You by Mary J. Blige
Summary: Katherine believes that she loves Tommy more than Kimberly ever could.

This is a request vid that took way too long to finish. Not that I didn't want to work on it, I just kept getting distracted by Gingaman (which I finished), Kamen Rider OOO (which I'm almost finished), Netflix's GLOW (which I finished in 2 days), random matches in Splatoon, and lots of toku concerts that I could not stop re-watching daily.

jenndubya: (DH / Echo)
Fandom(s): Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, GoGo Sentai Boukenger, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, Charmed, Haven, Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel, X-Men (1992)
Subject: Leading ladies/heroines gone bad (and it's part of an actual story arc)
Song: Cease Fire by Christina Aguilera
Summary: "I'm tired of fighting for peace..."

So I've got a bit of a story as to how this vid came to be. This has been on my list of songs to vid for a while now, but it was originally just gonna be on evil Power Rangers, which is why it sat so long because that's pretty generic. Later I decided that I only wanted to focus on women, which narrowed things down, but I also wanted multi-episode arcs. That left me with pretty much nothing.
I started thinking about how many men in toku get entire story arcs around being evil and just how little women get the same treatment. Then I took a look at my entire DVD collection and I still couldn't find as many female examples as there are male examples in Power Rangers alone! So this vid suddenly got super personal towards Hollywood and their treatment of male VS female protagonists/heroes.

I contemplated using Cordelia instead of Faith, because Cordelia is credited higher on Buffy/Angel, but decided against it for two reasons. One, I already had one pregnancy story arc and didn't really want another; and two, Faith is a slayer, which fits the heroine model a bit better than Cordelia.

jenndubya: female blues are made of win! (PR / Madison)
Fandom: Power Rangers
Subject: Various
Song: We Are by Toby Lightman
Summary: We are kings and queens. We are hope. We are Power Rangers.

You have no idea how long I've been working on this little, 50 second video. I'm pretty sure Dino Charge either hadn't debuted yet, or had just started. But I was really hoping that working on something positive would reinvigorate me to get back to work on my multi-fandom vid.

Fandom(s): Power Rangers, Super Sentai & Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon
Subject: Females with a green alter ego.
Song: Ready Or Not (Phenomenon Remix By Soul Glow Activatur) by Britt Nicole
Summary: While some people may think that green is a boy's color, these girls will own it and prove you wrong.

Happy St. Patrick's Day and Women's History Month!

Cyan is blue-green so Kyoryu Cyan totally counts. Also, I see you TOEI not making any official female Green Rangers until Lionsgate starts making announcements on the new movie. I'm onto your game.

Fandom: Power Rangers
Subject: Pink Rangers
Song: I've Got the Power by Fireflight
Summary: "Burning bright, that's what I was born to do."
A look at every Pink Ranger from Kimberly to... well, Kimberly.

Happy Pink Ranger Day!

I've been planning this for like, over a month now and am so glad to finally see this finished. (My third Pink Ranger ensemble!) Although, for some reason, at the end there it decided that it wanted to give me all the trouble rendering my YouTube copy. But after several attempts I finally got it all worked out. So ha!

Fandom: Power Rangers
Subject: Various Relationships
Song: I Am in Love with You by Imogen Heap
Summary: Sometimes the best love stories are never told.
A look at relationships that were planned/dropped, couples that never got conclusions, and love that sat in the depths of subtext hell.

Look! My first multi-season Power Rangers vid (of just Power Rangers, no other toku) since 2014! And my first multi-ship vid since like, 2012!

Fandom: Dark Angel
Subject: Max
Song: Shut Up and Drive by Rihanna
Summary: The only thing that Max needs between her legs is a Kawasaki Ninja. Black. Like her mood.

Look at me subverting car metaphors. I love turning lyrics on their head without messing with the core of the song.
I've also been wanting to vid this song since it came out, so when I found the album for super cheap in a Cyber Monday sale I was like "let's do this."
