Thanks very much to obsessive24 for the fast, helpful beta.

Please no post-S4 spoilers! I haven't seen anything after the S4 finale yet.


"So What'cha Want" by The Beastie Boys

Well just plug me in just like I was Eddie Harris
You're eating crazy cheese like you would think I'm from Paris
You think I get fly, you know I get high
You know that I'm gone and Imma tell you all why
So tell me who are you dissing
Maybe I'm missing
The reason that you're smiling or wilding, so listen
In my head I just wanna take'em down
Imagination set loose and I'm gonna shake'em down
Let it fall like a mudslide
When I get off I like to ride and glide
I got depth of perception in my text y'all
I get props at my mention cause I vex y'all
So whatcha whatcha whatcha want?
You're so funny with the money that you flaunt
I said where'd you get your information from, huh?
You think that you can front when revelation comes?

Yeah, you can't front on that

Well they call me Mike D the ever lovin man
I'm like Spoonie G yeah I'm the metro politician
You scream and you holla 'bout my Chevy Impala
but the sweat is getting wetter in the ring around your collar
Like a dream I'm flowing without no stopping
Sweeter than a cherry pie with ready-whip topping
From mic to mic, kicking it wall to wall
Well I'll be calling out you people like a casting call
Well it's wack when you're jacked in the back of my ride
With your know, with your flow, when you're out getting by
Believe me, what you see is what you get
and you see me, I'm coming off as you can bet
Well I think I'm losing my mind this time
This time I'm losing my mind
That's right said I think I'm losing my mind this time
This time I'm losing my mind

Yeah, you can't front on that

So whatcha whatcha whatcha want?

Oh, *very nice*. I love how this vid really is a concise encapsulation of the season's narrative: just like the season, you start off with the very broad fellowship competition, then narrow the focus down to tell the Amber/Wilson/House story. Only, what seemed (to me, anyway) an almost scattershot progression in the show itself becomes a very tightly coherent narrative in the vid. Score one for having to tell a complete story (or two or three) in under three minutes! *g*

And, as usual, *great* music/visual matchups. I especially liked the impact of...well, the impact of the truck on Amber, and the pulling-apart of House and Amber's hands, and--of course--matching Amber's mouth to the lyrics on that last "What'cha want?" And the way you used Taub and his wife and the Jewish wedding ceremony to parallel Wilson and Amber is *excellent*. And and and...

...yeah. *g* So good!

That was definitely the goal, so it's really reassuring that it came through so well. :) I've been trying to sort of get the pulse of the season and characters and flow of emotion with each of these House vids, and what you're describing here is exactly how the season felt to me. My influence as a vidder is just about trying to highlight (what I feel to be) the heart of the season's message/theme.

And the way you used Taub and his wife and the Jewish wedding ceremony to parallel Wilson and Amber is *excellent*.
I'm so glad someone caught that! Feared it wouldn't be transparent enough.

I'm very happy that the you enjoyed the musicality! This was my firs time vidding rap and, wow... rap to a talky face drama? Maybe not the best decision I've ever made. But it was big with the challenging. So yeah, I really appreciate your comments on that front!
