Leverage House Rules – Season 1

House Rules

Some music videos are just a given. That’s what I thought after hearing Christian Kane’s “The House Rules” and watching him as Eliot on the Leverage TV show.

A friend pointed me to Christian Kane>‘s website where you can get “The House Rules” mp3 for free. After listening to it a couple dozen times, it was obvious this should be a Leverage> mv.

I only used scenes from Leverage Season 1, and plan to cut another mv to this song using scenes from Leverage Season 2, once it is available on DVD. And again for Season 3, since they have been renewed for another season (yay!)

And for any Leverage fan who doesn’t know about it, the convention Con-the-Con> is coming up in mid-March in Portland, OR. Actors, writers, executive producers and professional confidence men are gathering for a weekend of fannish fun in support of this fabulous TV show. Come join us!

Special thanks to Christian Kane for the song, and Dean Devlin for the show.

Woolsey of la Mancha

Man of la Mancha

Man of la Mancha

I bought Robert Picardo’s two CDs when I saw him at the Creation Vancouver SG-1/ SGA convention and both surprised and pleased to hear “Man of la Mancha” on the Extreme Bob CD (listed as Opera2). That has been one of my favorite musicals since seeing it featured in a Quantum Leap ep.

Woolsey does come into his own in SGA season 5, and I love how they gave him such fine moments in the ep “Inquisition”. It seemed like the perfect pairing to me.

Award: Creation’s LA Stargate SG-1 / Stargate Atlantis convention in November 2009.

Rush Away – Take 1

You Can't Look Away

You Can't Look Away

Dr. Rush has turned out to be my favorite character on Stargate Universe. He’s not the brilliant somewhat socially awkward scientist you usually see on TV.

Rush is a brilliant scientist who can manipulate social situations to his own end, and his own end seems to be extremely self-serving … so far.

I’m thinking I may re-cut this music video again using footage from later in the season. Right now, this mv has scenes from Air, Part 1 through Light.

This is the second time I’ve used a song from the Lara Croft: Tomb Raider soundtrack, the first being “Elevation” to the anime FLCL. Both the soundtracks and the song compilations from the Lara Croft movies are good listening.

Requiem – Air 1

SGUrequiemAir1

Requiem for a Tower

I *really* like the third Stargate incarnation of Stargate Universe. I was not especially fond of the trailers, so I decided to make my own after I heard Requiem for a Tower*.

All of the footage is from SGU’s episode “Air, Part 1”, except the last two cuts. I also have an idea for an “evolving” mv for Dr. Rush. More info on that later.

* which you may have heard in a few movie trailers, so I’m following in grand footsteps 🙂

SONG>: Requiem for a Tower

You Won’t See Him Coming

You Won't See Me Coming

You Won't See Me Coming

Everyone has seen music videos of the primary cast of Stargate Atlantis. Here is my offering for Michael, using J J Burnel’s song I heard as an opening in an anime.

The reason I wanted to make this SGA music video is because I had the pleasure of meeting Connor Trinneer> at the Creation> Vancouver Stargate SG-1/Stargate Atlantis convention in March 2009. This was the first Creation con I had attended, and I discovered that music videos were used to introduce each guest. When I found out Connor was going to be a guest at the Stargate con in Chicago, I created this music video for him.

I had 2 songs in mind, but liked the strength in this song, which is the ending song of the anime Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo>.

Award: Creation’s Chicago Stargate SG-1 / Stargate Atlantis convention in September 2009.
