1) Comment to this and I will give you 3 people.

2) Post this meme with your answers.

3) Provide pictures and the names of the 3 people I gave you.(Please specify if you have a gender preference!) *waves hand* This is not the 3 you're looking for (because I can't be bothered right now).

4) Label which you would marry, which you would shag, and which you would throw off a cliff.

OMG, 9 days into January and I've already managed to mess up my one vid rec a day thing. I completely forgot yesterday :S So lets have 2 today to make up for it.

Title: Toushi
(The link above is to, which requires you to be a member to download, I believe. Since that seems like a lot of effort considering most of my flist is not into anime, here's a link to it on YouTube. Be warned though, it loses a lot of quality on YT. If you'd like a copy of the vid, without signing up for, let me know and I'll send you the copy I have in private).
Vidder: Majin Kenshin
Song: Goodbye by SR-71
Fandom/Pairing: Naruto - Gen
Why I Love It: Pretty much all I know of the Naruto fandom I've learned from vids, but even so, I can still pick up on the stories being told within this vid. You can really feel the fight and determination from the kids in here, as well as their insecurities. Not to mention this is just a pretty vid to watch with awesome timing. It's vids like this that really make we jealous of anime and the clean lines and strong colours within it's source material. There are some amazing uses of layers within this vid and the fast paced clip changes fill me with glee. Seriously, I'm doing a horrible job of explaining this vid, because it is far more awesome than I can say.

Title: Last High (about halfway down the page)
Vidder: [ profile] kitkatbyte and [ profile] f1renze
Song: You Were the Last High by the Dandy Warhols
Fandom/Pairing: Queer as Folk - Brian/Justin, Brian/Others
Why I Love It: It's like this song was written *just* for this vid. If there was ever a song to describe Brian and his meeting Justin, this song is it. That fact alone would make this a great vid, but add to the fact that it was done by two of the best vidders in the QaF fandom, and it's automatically awesome. All the clips are meaningful ones, and there's lots of clip movement (internal and added) to keep the vid moving along with the slower paced song.

Title: Touched
Vidder: [ profile] xandra_ptv
Song: Touched by Vast
Fandom/Pairing: Queer as Folk/Angel the Series - Brian/Angel
Why I Love It: I think this was the first AU crossover vid I ever saw and it's really stuck with me. I loved how she was able to imply the Brian/Angel relationship. It intrigued me how she could find similar scenes within each show and make it look like they were happening together. This vid really showed me how much power a vidder could have if they only reached for it. Xandra did a great job of melding these two shows together and of telling a unique story. I've seen other crossover vids since, but this one is still my favourite.

So, since I have no social life, rather than go out and enjoy the long weekend, I spent much of the afternoon today recording and editing podfics for [ profile] amplificathon so thought I'd share them here:

Title: Blissed
Author: [ profile] valerie_z
Reader: [ profile] paraka
Fandom: Queer as Folk US
Pairing: Brian/Justin (with Michael/Ben mentioned)
Length: 22:20, 6.16 MB (mp3 format)
Link: Please right click and save.
Point value: (5)+(5)+(4)=(14).
Summary: Brian opens up about his feelings, so Justin rushes him to the hospital.

I would like to thank [ profile] valerie_z once again for letting me record this, it's my favourite fic in the fandom, and I'm not even going to tell you how many times I had to record this before I could get through it without laughing my ass off (even though I didn't completely succeed for the posted one, I was mostly able to edit it out).

Title: Coping Skills
Author: [ profile] perpet_fic
Reader: [ profile] paraka
Fandom: Numb3rs
Pairing: Implied Don/Charlie (incest)
Length: 5:30 1.57MBs (mp3 format)
Link: Please right click and save as
Point value: (5)+(2)+(5)=(12).
Summary: Don, Charlie, and memories.

Thank you so much to [ profile] perpet_fic for letting me record this, and also for writing such an amazing story. So many of Don's memories here, I've incorporated into my personal version of canon, especially the thing with the arms (I don't want to ruin it if you haven't read it before ;).
paraka: A baby wearing headphones and holding a mic (QaF-B/J-You Are My Joy)
Ok, I know it's been a while, but I have a new vid.

It was made for [ profile] scrooged_media, so some of you may have already seen it, but I only just got around to signing it, and updating my webpage. So....

Song: Your Winter by Sister Hazel
Vidder: [ profile] paraka and [ profile] raxhel
Pairing: Brian/Justin
Spoilers: All of season 5
Summary: Fatedcinderella requested a B/J vid set to Your Winter by Sister Hazel.

This is also my first collaboration, and was made with the help of [ profile] raxhel, my Paraka Productions partner in crime.

Please right click, and "save taget as..."

Feedback needed welcomed.

Did you know that LJ has a maximum of 5000 comments?

[ profile] crucio started this meme over on her (his?) LJ, and I was going to join in, but the 5000 comment quota was hit (I would not want to be that person's inbox right now....) so I'm doing it here instead.


Have you had one of those days lately when you just scroll down your friends list and look at all the wonderful people you know... and wanted to smack a fair number of them? I'm sure you all know that every once in while, it's good to share your true feelings. It can be stress relieving, an opportunity to express true feelings while proving to be awfully amusing for those not taking part. And so, rising from the ashes is the traditional, yet ever time-killing Brutal Honesty Meme. Leave no throught unshared, no moron unwanked, no idiotic reply left without a searing, snarky retort. Have fun, children. It's time to get angry.

Now, I suppose you can start wanking random people here, but really, I just want to know what you think of me, and the things I'm apart of :P I never have the IP turned on, so do your worse!!
