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.

Subject: Lots of robots!
Song: Go Robot by the Red Hot Chili Peppers
Summary: Once you go robot, you never go no-bot.

The Chili Peppers are my favorite band, and I fell in love with this song from their new album, so I just had to vid it.
This is the result of me at the computer pretty much non-stop for several days storyboarding, ripping DVDs and editing footage. As a result I think I included pretty much every [live action] movie and tv show that I own that includes an android/cyborg. And now I have over 3GB of assorted, uncompressed scenes in an assorted footage folder.
Also, I dare you to not want to sing/dance along. I dare you.

Song: Girl Power by Shampoo
Summary: Who says guys get to do all the cool stuff? My 200th vid (since my second run, because I lost count during my 2005-2006 hiatus).

Eat your heart out, Army of Girl. This vid has way more girl, and a lot more power.

I actually had no idea that I had reached exactly 100 girls until I counted the finished project. Bonus points for whomever finds them all. (Counting Magiranger's Nai & Mae and the different Sarah Connor/Sister Nicci separately is cheating.)

I don't wanna be a boy, I wanna be a girl... )
