I have been busy vidding in November, making five new videos (for a gift set for my parents’s Christmas). While I won’t release them on Youtube until after Christmas, I realized I hadn’t updated my channel since my 9th vidding anniversary project! It was time to fix that.
Thus, I decided to share one of my older videos, a Battlestar Galactica one, So Say We All. This is a tribute to the men in the show and the music is Over the Hill and Far Away by Nightwish.

A while ago, I wrote about the videos I shared on YouTube, which had the most views, with how some of the results surprised me, while others didn’t’. I thought that it might be interesting to post about the other side of the coin, i.e. the videos I shared over the past few months that got less than 5 views for the time being.
#5. If I Will It All Away – Alien franchise, Music by Evanescence.
#4. I’d Give My Soul – Avatar, Music by Within Temptation.
#3. A Tale As Old As Time – Battlestar Galactica, Music by Nightwish.
#2. Be Everything You Can Be – Star Wars, Music by Shania Twain.
#1. We’re All Part of This Journey – Battlestar Galactica, Music by Within Temptation.
When I look at this list, I find it as random as the most viewed ones (though the most viewed one included a Game of Thrones video which made sense with the hype around this television series, especially as this is currently airing). Contrary to the most viewed, I have sorted these out, not by number of view, but by posting date, for a few of them had equal views so far. Ironically, I find it weird that my Alien video has only so few views in comparison to the Prometheus one and I would have really thought that my Star Wars videos (one of my favorite ones I’ve made) didn’t get more popular either. As for the Battlestar Galactica ones, I’m surprised that A Tale As Old As Time has so few views, despite being a Starbuck centric, in comparison to my Anders one, for example.
So, that was my little bit of randomness and vidding musing for today and I hope that you all have a good weekend. I have a few posts I have on my mind for the upcoming week, both the answers to the writing process blog hop (thank you Hayley for tagging me!) and some thoughts regarding academia and social media. I am also trying to come up with a good idea of post to submit to Fangrrrl.com, and might be inclined to write about Star Wars influenced me as both as a fangirl and a scholar.
My Iron Man upbeat video (yes I can make some of those sometimes) is a good way to illustrate how good and accomplished I am feeling about the progress of my Women in Science Fiction Television book project! I finished all the formatting today after having worked a lot on it for the past week. I reviewed everything again today, chapters, illustrations, bibliography and assorted documents. I was able to send everything to the collection’s director who is my contact with the publisher. I am really glad of how this project has gone over the last six months and I am looking forward to hearing back from my contact, to know what I can do to improve the book.
Last year, I finally arrived to the Falling Skies party. I fell in love with the show and watched the first two seasons back to back as soon as I could. Yet, I didn’t get around watching the third one until this week. I couldn’t stop as soon as I started the first episode. I liked how they had developed the characters, their dynamics and the stories in the first two seasons, but in my view, they have really pushed things even further with this latest season. Is it June yet so we can have the fourth season?
Having a jump in time, seven months further after the end of the previous season was a risky move, but they handled it really well. The information and developments were well set. I smirked when picking on Babylon 5, Battlestar Galactica and assorted references and nods throughout the season. Anne’s baby scared the living hell out of me. I tend to be scared with such things, as weird as it might sound. I also was glad that the season finale didn’t end with a nasty cliffhanger. I’m grateful when a show has some mercy on its viewers.
I also got to watch Intelligence season finale, 1.13 Being Human. I loved it and it was great to get to see more of Gabriel’s past and family history. Seeing the whole team be so close and work together to save the day also was a real treat. Mei Chen is still an interesting character, and while I wasn’t surprised so much by the final scene between her and Lilian’s father, I am still curious of the exact game at play there, besides the remaining Tigers. The last scene between Gabriel and Riley reminded me of some Mulder and Scully scenes in the X-Files. It was a lovely moment between the two. I hope that not only the show gets renewed as it’s one of my favorites in the shows that premiered this season, and that if so, we get to see more of Gabriel’s mother!
