If there were a kickstarter for this (wonderful fake trailer for a Dean/Castiel romantic comedy), I would contribute SO much money. Dammit, why can't kickstarter fund the projects I really want to see?

Okay, in case you missed [livejournal.com profile] serrico's recommendation of this amazing vid by dualbunny and sweetestdrain and greensilver, I must boost the signal. You must watch this if you've ever been a Clex fan. I can't say anything more about it except that it is a completely life-changing experience. I don't think I'll ever look at that relationship in the same way again.

Many thanks to everyone who left suggestions on my post asking for suggestions for feminist TV episodes. I would still welcome suggestions on that post, but after some conversation in the comments there it occurred to me that it might actually be easier to find examples of feminist vids than actual feminist TV shows. Here's what I thought of off the top of my head/ found through delicious searches; does anyone have other suggestions for vids that highlight themes of gender/feminism, especially ones that might address other issues (like race and class)?

What I have so far )

Since a couple people asked, here is the best part of The Daily Show last night (via Comedy Central's webpage), as well as a link to the whole episode (via Hulu).

And if anyone else was as infuriated by Sarah Palin's convention speech as I was, here's a good critique of her candidacy by Gloria Steinem. A few good quotes from Steinem, in case that link goes dead )

I had to make myself stop reading commentary on her speech because steam was coming out of my ears. Fortunately, I found a good piece of fannish stress relief: a ten-minute vid of Jensen Ackles kissing people .

Edited to Add: Here's an AWESOME response to Palin's slam on community organizers: http://nielsenhayden.com/makinglight/archives/010538.html
Favorite quotes from this:

"[M]y dad is a community organizer, so lemme spell this out: the difference between a community organizer and a politician is that a community organizer can’t tell anyone what to do. They have to listen. So they can’t order books banned from a library to indulge their own religious sensibilities. They can’t fire someone because they didn’t follow orders to fire an estranged family member. They can’t ram through a $15 million dollar sports complex that leaves their local town groaning underneath the debt. Unlike politicians, they don’t have any power other than the power of people who want to see something changed."

"Mrs. Palin needs to be reminded that Jesus Christ was a community organizer and Pontius Pilate was a governor."

OMG. This may be the best crossover (mashup/constructed reality) vid I have ever seen: The Chosen Ones, a Smallville/BTVS crossover by [livejournal.com profile] vyperman7. It's a trailer for a Buffy/Clark film, and it works so well I was amazed. Now I really wish this was an actual movie. (Link courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] liviapenn).
