f1renze: (me!)
I'm gonna take my clothes off too...

Okay, so VividCon was awesome. I missed 2008 and 2009, and was generally behind on vids and vidders. But I had a great time and I'm more caught up now! I did feel a bit shy this year, and I probably could've done a better job at greeting people I didn't know. But I still met wonderful new people, such as [personal profile] kuwdora and [personal profile] cee_m, and it was fun to finally meet [ profile] braver_creature in person.

Some of my favorite vids were CITIHALL* by [ profile] bradcpu, the two For Your Entertainment vids: the Arrested Development one by [personal profile] sdwolfpup and the BSG one by [ profile] dualbunny, Never Better by [ profile] renenet, and On the Prowl by [ profile] sisabet and [personal profile] sweetestdrain. My favorite activities include getting ready for and dancing at Club Vivid, catching up with [personal profile] sdwolfpup and reviving our cheese-fries-before-Premieres tradition (we hadn't seen each other since 2007! it was criminal), and singing breaking here's luck's brain with [ profile] sisabet, [ profile] jarrow, and [personal profile] pipsqueaky. Long live Boyz II Men! I'm so sorry.

I was more nervous about Vid Review than about my Premieres vid, heh. But doing Vid Review was good because it made me actually stand in front of everybody and say something (even if it's just "Eek, I killed both mics!"). [personal profile] astolat was so easy to work with, and I liked how we approached the review -- by chunking the playlist into categories so that groups of vids could be discussed at the same time. I do want to emphasize that our categorization was mostly an attempt at getting the discussion going, and it was in no way meant to lock any vid to a category. Like [personal profile] astolat said in her journal, it would be cool to think about other categories than the ones we proposed. In conclusion, we reviewed ALL the vids!

I probably can't get organized enough to post a proper report, but I really want to thank the concom for doing such an incredible job (really there are no words!), the volunteers for being so reliably awesome, and my peeps [personal profile] pipsqueaky, [personal profile] sweetestdrain, and [personal profile] trelkez for being the best roommates ever. It was good to be back. &hearts
