Another reason X3 pleases me

Not that I have any idea when I can do anything about it.

Although I did end up getting offered ensemble in Miss Saigon and ultimately turning it down, after asking for some idea of how much I would actually be doing, and reading between the lines such that I think I'd just be crowd in "Morning of the Dragon" and maybe "Kim's Nightmare," and a tourist in Bangkok. Maybe not, but I didn't want to take the chance. Which means still no commitments after Barnum. Which means, potentially, time to actually vid again. "Dance with the Angels" remains first on the list -- maybe after, what, three years of saying so (and not even bothering to say it last year), I really can get it done for VividCon.

However, I may have to revive "Jericho" as second on the list. My original idea was to do it for the 1990s cartoon version of the Phoenix and Dark Phoenix sagas, edited to track more closely with the comics storyline. When X2 came out and they were obviously setting up to do something with Phoenix, I became hopeful that I'd be able to do the vid with the movieverse instead. And I think it'll work. There's one recurring line that will even work better.

lyrics by Tara MacLean

March around
Jericho loved the music and fell
into your arms breathless

Heard a sound
Shut my eyes so tight
Heard the whisper of a storm coming

Oh, funny how
I spent this time waiting around
Oh, it's a lie
Everything you've felt 'til now

Saw her dancing
The floor gave way
Opened its mouth
To say her name

Saw her falling
Cast away, cast away
'Til she learned to fly one day

Oh, funny how
I spent this time on the ground
Oh, it's a lie
Everything you've felt 'til now

Same place i've always been
I'm just lost on these roads again
Just as I got near the end
I keep falling in the holes you left in me

Oh, funny how
I spent this time lashing out
Oh, it's a lie
Everything you felt 'til now

I'd love to see that. I think I'm going to have to reuse a song for an X3 vid myself... I used 'My Madea' on the Labyrinth vid because I didn't think I'd ever have material to do an X-vid with it. I was... so very wrong.

Funny how that happens. *wry g* When the "Jericho" idea first hit me, it was to wish that I could vid with comics, because the cartoon hadn't gone quite the right direction for it to work. Then I realized the material was there if I edited it right. But I never got around to it, and come X2 I realized that just might be a good thing. I had actually kind of forgotten that until today, because I'm so out of the vidding habit.
