Damon/Elena Music Vid - Spacebound  
Listening to the new Eminem CD, I was struck by how parts of the song "Spacebound" so perfectly fit Damon about Elena. I couldn't let go of the idea, and so I made a music video. Just a heads-up, being as it is an Eminem song, there is profanity and some misogyny. (If interested, you can download it here.)

I Love your video! It makes me want to watch the show! Maybe I'll start watching it after I catch up with Doctor Who!

It's a BRILLIANT show. You do have to get past the first three episodes -- which are mostly exactly what you'd expect from a CW tween vampire drama. Starting in ep 4, things start to switch it up and then it just gets better and better and better. And upon rewatch, even the first three are much better because you see deeper meaning and layers to things because of what came after.

It's seriously my favorite-ist show that I've watched in YEARS! I think the last show that I watched and loved THIS much was Farscape. And if you know Ian Somerhalder from Lost as Boone, trust me, he's an absolute revelation here. I always liked him, but on this, oh my God, he's A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! He's my favorite actor right now. LOVE HIM.

Glad you loved the video too. :D

That was really well done! I liked the timing a lot and even though I'm not and Eminem fan I thought the song choice was very fitting for Damon.
*Thumbs up*

Thank you. :)D I tried to match the lyrical and musical beats with the editing.

Glad you liked it, even if not an Eminem fan (which I can understand, LOL!).

Wait -- this couple has actually kissed? :p I had no idea until I got to the end of your video (I admit, my reluctance to watch this is I've had it up to here with couples-that-probably-won't-ever-get-together. I'm in a UST Recession, and I'm only buying sure-thing 'ships. ;p )

But...now I admit I am intrigued. (Also, the video was GREAT. Your editing skills are awesome. Fabulous choice of music, too -- Eminem and vampires seem to go together :)

I won't say anything, just that you should watch it. And based on everything we know about the source material, there's no way that Elena won't be seriously involved with both brothers before the end of the series. If you do watch the show (and I'd love for you to do so), PLEASE avoid any spoilers.

the video was GREAT. Your editing skills are awesome. Fabulous choice of music, too -- Eminem and vampires seem to go together :)

Thank you so much. And I'm relieved that my audio editing apparently worked as well! :D

Hee, so I guess one can watch being pretty spoiled on many things, and STILL find it awesome. ;p

This video makes much more sense...five months later, but is no less awesome. If anything, the awesomeness is merely enhanced. :D Love them (added them to my LJ interests! Hee! :)

Oh this is just fabulous. Your editing was quite well done. I didn't really notice anything off in the audio. Yay. And well I forgot how much I loved Eminem until this week, and thus it's fitting I watch this video now. Yay all around!

Why do I still not have a Vampire Diaries icon...what the hell is wrong with me?

You're right, the song IS a great fit those two crazy kids. :) Good clip selection, and I especially liked how you ended the vid. Thanks for sharing; I enjoyed watching this video.
