other than to say I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a
Happy New Year. See you in 2008!
20.12.07 Another set of stocking
fillers for the Browncoats & Buffy fans! Footage of
guest appearances (shot on shakeycam by me) at the closing
ceremony of 'Fusion' - the first UK appearance of Firefly cast
alongside some excellent BtVS cast. There aren't any Q&A's
as that was not permitted, but there are some speeches which I
hope you will enjoy. Click on the icons to get to the page,
check out Nick Brendon, Nathan Fillion, Emma Caulfield, Summer
Glau, Juliet Landau and Jewel Staite amongst others.

12.12.07 I'm looking around
for some whedonverse related 'stocking fillers' to post for the
run up to Christmas and this nicely coincides with David
Boreanaz visit to the UK this week. He has been on Radio 1 and
C4 Paul O'Grady show and is due to appear on BBC2 Graham
Norton Show later this week. I have the audio clips for
just the 'David' section of the radio show and the TV appearance
available for you to watch/download. Click on David below to go
to the page.
6.12.07 I've added some
more icons and updated Fanvid awards. I hope to get a
vidlet done for the Holidays but I may be too busy making mince
pies. Approaching fast and picking up speed - The Holiday season
is upon us. So whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah or
Divali - I wish you all the best. Click the image below to
get to the Holiday Page - you'll find the Christmas vids, walls
22.11.07 Happy Thanksgiving to
all who celebrate! Hope it's not a 'Yam Sham' and
everyone has both ears! Some icons too, if you want.
16.11.07 Another snippet of the
Big Damn Hero montage is up on the
Wet Paint Page - This time it's
'River'. Updated awards won by my Fanvid 'Promise' - a
huge thank you to MMVA for Best Video and Best Editing and also
to Poetry in Motion Awards for Best BtVS. There are a few
more icons in the Digital Art section. Many of you may have
heard about the Writers Guild of America Strike. As this affects
everyone who enjoys watching shows written
by members of the guild, I would recommend that if you are
interested in finding out more, and want to show your support
then check out the site below.
13.11.07 New Vidlet. To celebrate the
publication of Angel: After the Fall, here is 'Angel: New Beginning' a
brief S5 recap vidlet to get you all in the mood. I will be adding a
Updated some awards won for icon/fan art challenges and my
Xander vid 'Great Escape'. Also added a new Firefly Wall 'That
Went Well' and more icons. The new AtS vidlet
is coming on, who'd have thought less than 2 minutes could take
so long to edit. Click on thumbnail to go to the wall or icons.
So who is going to watch a Buffy or Angel episode to celebrate
Halloween? Some seasonal icons, banners and new wallpaper
on the 'Halloween' page, click the wallpaper image to get there.
Enjoy the trick or treating.
new Icons and a Anya/D'Hoffryn Banner in the digital art
galleries - Click the thumbnails below to check them out. All
made for the LJ Challenge community 'Still_Grr' - this month the
prompts are all 'Big Bads' so there's plenty of evil to be
seen. There are some new links and affiliates added to the Link
Page and I also plan on making more banners and icons for
Halloween so check back next week. Another new vid has
been started, it's early on in the timeline right now so nothing
much to say other than it is A:ts - Season Five .
9.10.07 See all
the photos and read some anecdotes from Serenity Infinity -
Starfury's latest Firefly /Serenity Convention. Click the
finished the 'BDH' Montage - A sneak peak is on the
Wet Paint Page
- I will be showcasing each character individually. The first up
is 'Inara', the 'Cordy' sketch has moved to the Angel Gallery.
30.09.07 Working hard on
finishing some new art - it's a Big Damn Hero Montage.
Disappointing again that Adam Baldwin has had to cancel due to
work commitments. One day, I hope, I will get to meet him.
Updated some awards won for 'Great Escape' and 'Promise', plus a
couple of Site and Art Awards from BBM 3rd Anniversary round.
Thanks for those. Some new links added for my vids on
stream at imeem. Quality is poorer than before. Once I am
back from the Convention I hope to start on a new vid although I
have no idea yet what it will be.
Serenity Infinity Convention fast approaches and I had planned
to do some new art and vid for the contests held there. The art
is definitely achievable but I am not sure I can wrestle out a
Firefly Vid by then. In the meantime I have updated awards
won by my fan vids and as I have been tagged more than a couple
of times here are the first of the memes. My nano on shuffle
gave me the following - Scary huh?
Paint it Black
- Tea Party
I Predict a Riot - Kaiser Chiefs
I like the
way you move - Body Rockers
Dancin' Shoes - Artic Monkeys
Beat of my own drum - Poe
Fugitive Motel - Elbow
Processed Beats -Kasabian
Forfeit - Chevelle
The Line- BRMC
Blind - Placebo
28.08.07 A long
time coming but definitely worth the wait - New Vid and Site
Choices - These won't be monthly from now on but I
hope to make at least four or five recommendations a year .
A new Firefly/Serenity Video from Bradcpu 'Working Class Hero' -
go watch and marvel - and the Site is 'Aimee's Sanctuary'
a fantastic collection videos from the whedonverse and
other film and TV Fandoms. Check out the banners at the
foot of the page. New affiliates - CEC & Kaycee's site
'Indifferent Obsessions' 'Fairy Dust Productions' and Nikima's
new information site 'Crossroad Times' please check them out.
23.08.07 A few
new icons themed with the new Vid 'Promise' click teaser below.
I have also updated my fanvid awards. I successfully made
it through to the Sweet Sixteen of the Vidding Tournament over
Friendly Neighborhood Video Awards
- which considering the competition I am very pleased
about, classed as a 4th seed was an achievement in itself. There
is now a HQ version of the new vid but no imeem stream - quality
is so poor that I decided not to upload until that improves.
Another New Vid - BtVS S2 Angelus/Buffy/Spike/Drusilla angst -
'Promise'. Click on the banner to get there. There is no Imeem
stream of this yet and I may still upload a HQ version.
Feel free to send any feedback or leave message on the tag
I'm back with just a brief update. There are a smattering
of new icons here - I'm gradually working my way through screen
caps that take my fancy, click the image below.
Unfortunately I am having some issues with the Imeem video site
so you may have problems accessing some of the vids on stream,
you should still be able to download them though. Our
viewers choice poll is still open in the Best of the Best Round
Art of Vidding Awards- there are some excellent vids
which you can watch and then vote for your favourite. And
finally 'Great Escape' has won it's first awards - thanks to
Sunnydale Stories Video Awards. Also some more for Gordon &
Signal To Noise.

exactly a month since my last update - Sorry folks but it's been
busy over at the
Art of Vidding Awards. So -
what's new you say? A few more icons added, click the
image below to get to them. I have added all the awards
won recently for fan vids - 'Gordon' has won a further
sixteen which I delights me, and some more for 'She Visits Me'
'Siva' & 'Signal To Noise'. I have also added links
to the streamed versions of the latest vids if you'd rather
watch online than download. All feedback is appreciated.
I'm two thirds of the way into S1-3 Xander vid - it's up tempo
and in a lighthearted vein. It seems that I have no
inspiration for a dramatic or serious vid at the moment so I am
just going with whatever takes my mood. In a couple
of days I hope to have a new vid/site choice of the month.
'Gordon' has won it's first awards along with more for 'She
Visits Me' & 'Siva' - thanks to Sunnydale Stories Awards,
Supernatural Freak Awards and BtVS Vidding Awards - Links to
these sites can be found

As promised a clean slate with the icons and a new batch of 23

brief update - check out the Vid of the Month Choice below, '
When You Were Y0ung' a beautiful and nostalgic BtVS fan vid by
you could say that it's a bit like buses - nothing for ages and
then two come along together. Yet another new vid - This time
it's my first AU - Buffy/Angel crossover about a love triangle -
'Gordon' Once again click on the image to go to the page.

Reverie's Style Contest. Click on image to go to the page.
Finally chosen a Site for this months choice. It's
'The Database' - not only whedonverse vids but other
popular TV and Movie fandoms. A good place to check when you are
looking for your latest fan vid fix. So if you make vids
or just love watching them, click and check it out. My
next Vid choice will be from the Reverie Style Contest - when
this closes and the vidders are revealed I'll be posting a new
The Sketch of Charisma Carpenter is now on the 'Wet Paint' Page
- click the link to the left to view. I've been slack but
I will be back in a couple of days with some new Month's
Choices. Also I have updated awards for my fanvids -
'Signal to Noise' did marvelously at 'Path of the Heart Awards'
so thanks to the judges there. Also some awards for 'Fix
You' 'I'm Too Sexy' & 'House Rules' - thanks to Bring on the
Night, Beautiful Lie and EHI Awards Sites.
Back from Collectormania this weekend. There are a couple of
pages of photos of the beautiful Charisma Carpenter, and
snaps of the other whedonverse guests too. Click on banner below
The vidding Timeline has been opened once again. Hopefully
there will be a new vid of some kind next month. Very soon
I will be removing and revamping all the icons/walls & banners
- it seems that some people know how to hotlink images here
but not how to read the requests not to do this . Peculiar
and strangely irritating. New awards won for 'No
Self Control' and 'Black Tangled Heart' Thanks go to Flip Side
Awards, Driver Picks the Music Awards and Sunnydale Stories
Awards. Next original art project will be 'Cordelia'
Charisma Carpenter for Collectormania 11 in May - when I
hope to be able to see the only cast member of Angel I have yet
! Original sketch of Christina Hendricks as 'Saffron' (aka
YoSaffBridg) on the
Wet Paint Page
Also just a reminder PLEASE DO NOT HOTLINK
IMAGES - that means anywhere including forums, MySpace or Jappy
- you can easily upload them to your own server and post them.
I have also updated awards won by my fanvids. My vidding
muse appears to have deserted me so I am off to look inside the
Sofa in hell. Wish me luck.
Happy Easter to you all - A new Wall to celebrate and a couple
of icons. Click on Images to get to the page or full size wall.
More updates soon.

All the photos from Serenity Four are now posted in the
Convention Section. To go straight to the pages click the image
10th of March marks the 10 Year anniversary of 'Buffy The
Vampire Slayer' first Television appearance. It arrived a little
later here in the UK so, in keeping with that sentiment, my
tribute graphic art set Wall & icons is a little late too.
Click on the image below to view them. Nothing much to
report other than my total failure to start a vid yet - the plan
is to do some last minute artwork for Serenity 4 this Friday.
Charisma Carpenter has been added to Collectormania 11 signing
event in May so I have hope to meet her there too. I have
updated my Fanvid awards, more for 'No Self Control' & 'It Had
to Be You', thanks to all the awards sites for those.
28.02.07 I had
hoped to have started a new vid project by now but February as
flown by without a trace of a clip on the timeline. Still
wavering between a couple of frivolous ideas and I just need a
kick start. In the meantime I have updated awards for my
Fan Vids, thanks to BOTN, MMVA, Beautiful Lie
Awards, Sunnydale Awards and Army Awards. In
two weeks I will be attending Serenity4 in Glasgow - another
Starfury Convention for 'Serenifly' fans. I am looking forward
to that and may get a chance to do a YoSaffBridg sketch before I
leave. In the artwork side of things there is
a preview of Lorne from an AtS Sketch montage on the Wet Paint
and Fan Fiction of the month are now posted. The
Vid, by the talented Jessie is a AtS overview
inspired clip to lyric choices and a fantastic trip to the dark
& twisted world that was S4 Angel, the fic is a Faith/Giles
story post 'Chosen', a prelude to further adventures of
Faith, by the awesome MaraSho. I hope to have the
site choice here soon. Please check them out, they are
definitely worth it. Also welcome to new affiliate
15.02.07 I am
delighted that 'No Self Control' has won Best Video, amongst
other awards in the latest rounds at
Sunnydale Stories Awards and
Beautiful Lie Awards - Thanks
so much, that's something special. Haven't started a new
vidding project yet but I do have a couple of lighter themed
ideas I would like to try after all the angst of the last two. I
will update on any progress.
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY To celebrate I have made some
new Icons, a banner and a new whedonverse Couple sketch. Click
on the icon below to go to the page.
new Icons in the
Digital Art section - just 16 assorted Angel, Buffy,
Firefly and celebrity images. Vid, Fiction and Site of the month
should be up by the end of the week and I hope to have some more
art to celebrate Valentines Day. 'No Self Control' has won
it's first award - thanks to SpikeJem over at Army Awards.
New Art - The sketch of Elisabeth Rohm as 'Kate Lockley' has
moved to the Angel Gallery and there is now a sketch of Mark
Sheppard as 'Badger' on the
Wet Paint page. I
have also updated awards for my fanvids - thanks to Evil Hand
Issues & Breaking Free Awards. Hope to have some more
icons in the next few days and I am starting to think through
the next vid project. After all the angst of the last two I am
hoping to do something much more frivolous and silly.
I would like to say a huge thank you to CEC & KayCee over at
Bad Bad Man Awards for the
'Vidder of 2006' Award - I am so touched by the kind
things they had to say and I will treasure that award which you
some more awards for 'Signal to Noise' and 'Swell Party' and my
original Artwork & Walls from Reverie, thanks to everyone who

Peter Gabriel. Click on image to go to the page.
So it's come to this and all I can say is I am very sad.
I post artwork for people to see and hopefully appreciate. Yet
now I find that someone, named (according to Buffy and Angel
Magazine) 'Samantha Jones from Australia', has seen fit to
send in two copies of my group montages, cropped to remove
identifying marks and my signature in Black & White and claimed
as her own, it seems that they liked them so much they gave her
the star prize. I have written to the editor and I will
let you know what transpires. To say I am disappointed could be
deemed an understatement. In other news I am half
way through the next vid and hopefully this won't put me off
finishing it soon.
- 19 Icons - 2 animated, now up in the Digital Art gallery - all
from the Buffy Episode 'Lovers Walk' - please upload to your own
server and credit as usual. Updated my awards - more for
'A Christmas Ghost Story' thanks to MMV Awards & Sunnydale
Stories Awards. One more fan vid now on stream BtVS 'Hush'
episodic. Started preparing clips for the new vid -
if all goes well and I don't change my mind it will be Spike -
The Vid & Site of the Month
Choices are up! 'Hair of the Dog' is an fun character study of
Dean Winchester from Supernatural by Wolfpup - all his snark, cheek
with a good helping of violence! The Site of the month 'Slayerversathon'
is a LJ Community which will have Fanfiction, graphics and hopefully vids
posted over the coming month. Check it out - and if you want
contribute to the collection I am sure it would be appreciated . All my
previous selections will be added to the recommendation page if anyone wants
to back track over old choices. More of my fan vids are now
streamed, if there are any that you want to see added, tag me. I
am delighted to have been awarded 'Best Vidder of 2006' over at Evil Hand
Issue Awards - and my new vid 'A Christmas Ghost Story' won it's first
award - Best Video - and others over at 'Bring on the Night Awards' - which
And finally I
have a new affiliate 'Charming Like A God' please check
out the site by the link below.
Just a quick update mainly
my fan Vids - I still continue
to get problems with people downloading my vids and using them as clip
source, and posting the 'results' over at YouTube. There are two older
vids in particular that seem the most popular so I have decided to stream
these only. In addition I will be offering some of my other vids in
stream format as well as download. The
quality will not be as good as download but it may help those of you who
can't always get to see the vids. I
will be adding more as we go along. Please wait for the vids to buffer
before playing - it just makes it little less jerky.
Happy New Year
to you All!! Most of the recent updates have been made
over at the Art of Vidding Awards so it's time for something new
Elisabeth Rohm as Kate Lockley
now on the
Page. The sketch of Shepherd Book is now in the Firefly
Gallery. I hope to have new choices of the Month in a couple of
days and a new feature for some of the vids the Moving
Picture section. The
Christmas Page with all the
graphic art /vidlets will remain on-line until the end of
January and then 'get packed away' with all the other
decorations until next year. I have also updated the
awards for my fan vids - New ones for 'House Rules',
'Black Tangled Heart', 'Santa Baby' & 'Swell Party' -thanks to
all the Awards sites for these. Finally some of my vids
are in the Peoples Choice 2006 Polls over at
With Silence & Tears
and another Best Of Round at Serenity Awards - any support is
