Music Vid for Legend of the Seeker
I don't know how it works, but I started off working on Olivia/Elliot fanfic which turned into playing around with pretty new CS3 programs and led to a Legend of the Seeker music video. o_O

It goes without saying that the book series is infinitely better (and then some) and the show is some strange 'verse all its own. And yet, apparently it was music video fodder. I DON'T UNDERSTAND IT.

The video is some sort of character study on Kahlan; at least, that's what it looks like. And I think sapphs might be the only person watching the show, so this one is for her. ;)

Title: The Business Of Things
Music By: Dar Williams
Length: 2:26
Format: .wmv or .mov in a .zip file
Size: 22.8MB or 43.8MB

For WMV: Right click, save target as: businessofthings_wmv.zip
For MOV: Right click, save target as: businessofthings_mov.zip

And small size videos are a lost cause, it seems. I tried and tried and this was the best balance between size and quality I could make. Of course, I cannot figure out for the life of me why the QuickTime file ended up so much larger. *shrugs*

Ohmigod, I signed up for that, and I got almost the worst prompt ever. I have absolutely no idea what to write. *headwall*
phrenitis From: phrenitis Date: February 9th, 2009 05:26 am (UTC) (Link)
Aw. Well it's Liv and El - they sort of write themselves sometimes. ;) Take the prompt loosely? I'm sure you'll come up with something great.

LOL they do. I think I can write them easily if I just try, but the only trouble is coming up with a good story line that doesn't suck, lol. Aww, thank you! Let's wait and see... :D

Dawwww, you are just too cute! *squishes* I find the show heaps entertaining (although I maintain that Merlin is better overall), but there's just something about Richard that puts me off... I could happily watch the Kahlan and Zedd show *g*

*looks busy at work while downloading*

LOL *squishes back*

Have you read the Sword of Truth book series? If not, you would LOVE them; I recommend highly ('ship is better, too).

And I agree - besides having seizures over the storylines, there's something about Richard that doesn't fit my image of him from the books. And, I don't know, I just have a hard time believing he's going to be able to grow into the Richard I know he needs to be in a few "seasons" (depending how long they take on each book). But, we'll see! Thankfully, I'm now able to just enjoy this as a guilty pleasure show. Hee. ;)

I've read the first 5 or so books and wow Richard is just so much better in them. He's a little too whiney, childish and immature in the show for my tastes. I just watch it for the pretty now (Scenery! Dresses! Shirtlessness!). But OMG Puppeteer was great! Rachel was JUST like I imagined her too be and she was adorable to boot.

I reall yhave to read the rest of the books, but I just have zero time right now. Guh.
phrenitis From: phrenitis Date: February 9th, 2009 03:29 am (UTC) (Link)
Agreed on all counts! I know he's supposed to be learning the ropes, but he seems awfully young. Also, I wish they would introduce the Mud People! *waits impatiently* And win for shirtless arms/abs and 'ickle Rachel!

And yeah, know what lack of time is like. :\ But, you must get to Faith of the Fallen when you can; absolutely incredible, and it's my favorite of the entire series. :)

I'm also watching LOTS... but I can't stand it. Richard is too much of a wimpy whiny bitch. lol

The books were so much better, but I wouldn't have mind skipping books 5-9. lol

But the show has gone off in it's own AU with the characters that happen to appear in the SOT books.

I'm not caught up on the show though. I'm waiting to have a marathon with my friend to make fun of the show's "liberties".
phrenitis From: phrenitis Date: February 9th, 2009 05:36 am (UTC) (Link)
Heh, so true. God only hopes they'll be forced to change him as they get further into the series - Richard shouldn't be getting away with this personality now, but definitely can't in future!

And dude, book 6 was my favorite! *wooks* There's just something about the way it progresses - both of them incredibly strong despite being alone and dealing with seemingly insurmountable odds - through to the end. *dies* I remember finishing it at 2 in the morning and being unable to even attempt to sleep because I was just wide awake on this RUSH of emotion. LMAO.

But yeah, I just view LOTS as some random TV series that just happens to have something in common with the SOT books. And for Craig's body. *la*

I think marathon watching is probably the best idea; you don't have to wait week after week going, "OMG THEY DID NOT JUST DO THAT". ;)

I think Faith of the Fallen was all right. I can't really remember it was so long ago, but I remember being really annoyed with Pillars of Creation and Naked Empire it just felt like Goodkind was repeating himself for another 1000 pages and I guess I was getting tired of waiting for the Richard and Kahlan's story to move on.

Dude, Craig's body. in the pilot when he was chopping wood shirtless... yum! The boy has some nice abs! But it can't fix the fact that every time he opens his mouth I want to punch Richard lol

And I'm really REALLY annoyed that Darken Rahl is not blond. I like Haldir and all, but I always imagined Darken Rahl to be different. :p

I have to do a marathon, because I always forget to watch it too. I too busy keeping track of other shows, and they air the show sporadically it's hard to keep track.

I guess I was getting tired of waiting for the Richard and Kahlan's story to move on

Haha, for sure. I agree!

And omg, yes - SAME thought about Darken Rahl. Then again, I'm also annoyed that Richard and Kahlan don't have grey and green eyes respectively. *sigh* If only Terry Goodkind hadn't focused on it so damn much in the books, I might have been able to let it go. ;)
