More Fanvids

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2015 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

I delved into the Festivids small fandom vid exchange archives (yay tags) and found some cool stuff to share.

Funny: a vid about The Thick of It emphasizing physical comedy and incompetence.

New perspective: "The Ballad of Wesley Crusher" (the vidder's notes point out that young Wesley's fascination with exploration and discovery "gets translated into an adoration for Starfleet, which is exactly the wrong place for him").

Tearjerkers: women's friendship in Community and Parks & Recreation (and check out the discussion of characterization of women in the comments); a vid about an Indian women's sports movie I have never seen and now want to; the triumph of Leslie Knope; the loyalty of Gromit to Wallace; courage in Apollo 13.
