All of my vids can be found on LJ via the list below, by clicking on the vid tag, or at my site. I'm also on You Tube, AO3, and Tumblr.

EDIT: As of April 28, 2015, all file download links are dead.

Every vid I"ve ever made, with LJ linksCollapse )

Thanks for watching!

I just wanted to say thank you for all of the words of encouragement during my vidding and website trouble.

Everything's still offline, but thanks to all of you I was able to finish a Club Vivid vid for this year's Vividcon and am planning to submit a premiere. It helped to unplug for a while, delete some of my social media accounts, etc. I'm hoping to find a permanent place for my vids some time this summer.

In the meantime, seriously, thank you.

Now a random top 10 list. Because everyone loves top 10 lists, right? OK, maybe not so random - I'm thinking of requesting this for Festivids this year so I wanted to have some links handy.

So yeah. Here's a countdown of my 10 favorite Epic Rap Battles so far. (Disclaimer: If you're unfamiliar, this is a silly web series about cultural icons insulting each other. So expect a bit of profanity and a lot of tastelessness, if witty, well-researched tastelessness. Never has so much creative brilliance gone into something so stupid.)

The Shakediggedy switches it upCollapse )

It"s more like a rug reallyCollapse )

The host with the most GlasnostCollapse )

No time to read reviewsCollapse )

Must not register on an emotional levelCollapse )

We got one!Collapse )

Turning heaven a profitCollapse )

The answer is iCollapse )

My webhost pulled the plug on bradcpu.com this week. They claimed I was only authorized to use the site for html files, not for any sort of media files... which was news to me.

Long story short, all of my vid download links are dead and all of my vid banners and such are gone. People have offered hosting (thank you!) but I don't have the time and energy - or commitment to fandom/vidding - at the moment to try to move everything somewhere new and update a decade of links.

I'll say something if that ever changes.

I'm not sure if anyone still reads this site but I just wanted to write through this in hopes of finding a path to the other side.

A thing that happenedCollapse )

I'm not sure where to go from here. Another hobby? I'd hate doing that because vidding brings me so much joy in so many ways.

I just can't see a way through.

Yes, I did make an anonymous Romeo and Juliet vid for my wife. Yes, I am that cheesy. Who said I wasn't?

A Buffy Jonathan vid made for my arch-enemy, me Eli.

elipie won the Polka Slayer guessing contest last year and asked for a Jonathan vid. It was supposed to be a vidlet but it took a while. So, vid.

Thanks to kuwdora and milly for their help and encouragement.

Just too mired in the post-con blues to do it.

Short version: The people were great, and I had a lot of fun when my issues would allow me to have fun. Otherwise I just tried not to rain on too many parades.

The creativity and discussions were inspiring, and con organizers continue to pull off miracles each year under some pretty demanding circumstances.
