A slightly premature Monday antidote.

drop_edge sent me this with the following message: "If you can make Spike and Buffy do this to "Time of My Life" from Dirty Dancing, I will bake you a million loaves of homemade bread." *sigh* If only. This is the Everest of doll performance art; a humble hobbyist like myself can only dream of scaling its lofty peaks.

No sound. Which made this even more incredible.
OMG. This is glorious! And should be studied.

Sleep well. I'll be thinking of you tomorrow morning, sweetie. :)

Re: No sound. Which made this even more incredible.
*lol* Well, I guess you'll just have to sing the theme to Flashdance yourself, then. I can't even imagine the hours and hours that were given to the production of this little piece. Wowza.

Thanks, doll. I'm going to force myself to turn in now though I'm loathe to do it. B. has assured me that he'll make twice the normal amount of coffee in the morning. My caffeine-induced perkiness will radiate through the office and stun everyone like Faye's eyebeams. ;)

Can you sleep for me tomorrow morning, too? Be my sleep proxy, Philips. Do not rise before, say, nine.

Re: No sound. Which made this even more incredible.
Actually, my plans include rising early in solidarity and raising a cup in your honor. *doubles your dose of Faye*

I can't wait to hear about your first day back. Is your pencil box and backpack ready? ;) Did you finally wash your clothes? I look forward to reading your responses tomorrow. To bed with you, my sleepy friend! *huge hug of encouragement*

Re: No sound. Which made this even more incredible.
*soaks up rays* Fayetosynthesis! Okay, I must have totally fried my brain with the fluttering around and multitasking today, because even I don't know what I mean by that.

Yep, I'm ready to go. *whispers* I didn't quite wash everything, but enough to get by on. I'm carrying all my crap back to work in my Slayage conference bag. I predict that I will form a blankie-like attachment to it.

Okay, really going to bed now. *many hugs* Thank you, sweetie. The encouragement is very much appreciated. I will raise a mug to my far-away friend in the morning and grumble less than is customary for a work morning.

Re: No sound. Which made this even more incredible.
It makes perfect sense to me. But then again, I used the word Ocrankiness this weekend. :)

Hope the morning is going well, lunch is soon, and that you packed a snack in your Slayage schoolbag. *hugs*

Re: No sound. Which made this even more incredible.
It makes perfect sense to me.

If there are two more pun-damaged people in the world than us, I don't want to meet them. :D

I wish I had been Ocranky this morning, but I was just the regular kind. So far so good, though. *knocks wood* B. took me out for sushi and frappucinos for lunch (but not together, 'cause, ewww) and I'm hoping to ride the sugar/caffeine high for at least the next hour.

Hope your day is going well! *smooch* I know you had to get up early, but if you feel like taking a nap on my behalf, you just go right ahead.

Bobba Fett flashdancing! Into a wall-- Bwaa-haa-haa!

I love his little feet still kicking out of the wall!
Aug. 18th, 2008 06:42 pm (UTC)
Heee! I must have watched that damned Flashdance video a hundred times when it first came out and was in heavy MTV rotation. Can you imagine how many times this poor vidder had to watch it? That's some serious devotion to your craft. :D

Aug. 18th, 2008 07:07 am (UTC)

I have no words.

Aug. 18th, 2008 06:44 pm (UTC)
Hahaha! *nods* Words are useless; sometimes you just have to let art wash over you. ;)
Aug. 18th, 2008 12:30 pm (UTC)
Wowee, that is one talented amateur video.
Aug. 18th, 2008 06:45 pm (UTC)
It boggles my weak mind to imagine the hours of toil this must little project must have demanded!
Aug. 18th, 2008 03:01 pm (UTC)
That doll video is unbelievable. It was so matched to the song beat. The things peope do!

Aug. 18th, 2008 06:47 pm (UTC)
That must have taken hours and hours. If only this person had some BtVS dolls! ;)
Aug. 18th, 2008 05:24 pm (UTC)
This is truly something to aspire to. I believe in you, Mere!
Aug. 18th, 2008 06:49 pm (UTC)
Hee! I'm touched by your confidence, but I'm thinking that the person who made this has far more patience for doll attitude than I do. It's my fervent hope that the kid will become interested in stop motion animation when she gets a little older, and then I can enslave enlist her in future doll!fic projects. ;)
Aug. 18th, 2008 08:08 pm (UTC)
LOL, Boba Fett is probably more well-behaved than your doll terrors, so I'm sure he took direction better than Spike ever would.

*nods* Huge amounts of doll-manipulating talent there. Clearly this was made by someone who needs to branch out to other fandoms!

Happy Monday to you too! *hugs* It's my first day back at work, but so far, caffeine has made the transition bearable. Hope you're having a good day and that the number of educational interactions you've had with insects has been nil. :D

ETA that I just saw that you've updated ALLO! Bless you--my Monday just got a whole lot better. I'm very much looking forward to kicking back with some fic this eve.

Insect interaction -> Nil! Thank you!

Oh cool. Hope the rest of your day was smooth and you like the chapter!

Aug. 18th, 2008 11:12 pm (UTC)
That really is amazing.
Aug. 19th, 2008 02:40 am (UTC)
Truly, I am chastened by this person's passion for humiliating his action figures. Such focus!
Aug. 19th, 2008 04:06 am (UTC)
That is something apart. The amount of time to get the stop-animation just so and synchronized to the music must have been monumental.

I watched it at 7:30am this morning before I went off to work and laughed so hard my parents came in to inquire what had me in stitches. They both agreed - Ah-mazing!

Thanks for sharing it with us! I'm impressed like whoa.
Aug. 19th, 2008 06:51 pm (UTC)
Ah, I'm happy to share the funny. I watched that Flashdance video sooo many times in junior high, and I'm amazed by how accurately this vidder managed choreograph lil Boba Fett's moves. Priceless!

Nobody Puts Spike in a Corner
Okay, so maybe the Dirty Dancing request was a bit too ambitious. How about Angel doing I'm a Little Teapot? Let's see who talks about him in the chatty rooms THEN.

Re: Nobody Puts Spike in a Corner
Bwahahaa! You have a vicious mind. *ponders* It would be especially devastating if his arms fell off at strategic moments.

Personally, I think that the person who made the Boba Fett vid needs to branch out to new fandoms. ;)
