I made another Buffy video

It’s a music video, as the last two were. This time I used “Amazing Grace.” Might seem like a strange choice for a show like Buffy, but it seemed to fit.

I made the last two videos (based on the songs “Thrift Shop” and “Remember the Name”) with Windows Movie Maker, the free and decidedly low-end video editor that comes with Windows. It’s a surprisingly robust program, especially given the price tag, but it’s buggy. In particular, it crashes a lot when the videos start to get longer.

Last year, Betsy’s birthday gift to me was a (hopefully) better video editor: CyberLink PowerDirector 14, which cost $75. It wasn’t until this latest project, this week, that I finally got around to trying it.

It does have a lot of features, and a clean interface. It would be much better than Movie Maker — if it worked. But, like Movie Maker, it has a plethora of glitches. I literally spent almost as much time troubleshooting as I did actually making the video. So the search for good software continues.

Anyway, here’s the video I made:

Buffy magazine covers

So I may or may not have spent the last month creating over a dozen magazine covers featuring Buffy characters. Anya’s on Forbes. Spike made Rolling Stone.

Check it out. Warning: some (slightly) adult content.

And yes, I know I have a problem. If doing this is wrong, I don’t want to be right.

Buffy vs. Vader

This took me about a dozen hours to make. Not perfect, but I think I’m gradually getting better with Paint.net (a program that is sorta like Photoshop, but free).

Just sayin’.

Your Move, Leviticus

I haven’t written about it lately, but Betsy and I are still doing our Great Bible Read, working our way through the Book (or rather, books) one chapter at a time. Right now we’re reading Leviticus, which is a fascinating, enlightening, and surreal experience.

A few days ago we came to Leviticus 18:22.

You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.

Thoughtful pause, and then Betsy said:

“So I guess that doesn’t rule out girl-on-girl, huh?”

Touché.

Just some random stuff I’ve found on the Internet over the years, mostly on Imgur. I don’t have sources for anything, except the last two, which are scenes from Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Buffy, respectively.

First off, this wonderful bit of news:

John Kasich is in agony over his decision last year to support the eventual Republican nominee and the current reality that Donald Trump is his party’s presumptive standard-bearer.

“You know, it’s painful. It’s painful. You know, people even get divorces, you know? I mean, sometimes, things come out that, look, I’m sorry that this has happened,” the Ohio governor said in an interview aired Thursday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “But we’ll see where it ends up. I’m not making any final decision yet, but at this point, I just can’t do it.

I love my governor more all the time. Disagree with him a lot, but still love ‘im.

On a different subject, here’s a short discussion about the reluctance of soldiers to kill:

The results were consistently the same: only 15 to 20 percent of the American riflemen in combat during World War II would fire at the enemy. … The question is why. … [The answer] is the simple and demonstrable fact that there is within most men an intense resistance to killing their fellow man. A resistance so strong that, in many circumstances, soldiers on the battlefield will die before they can overcome it.

More on this is available from the wonderful Delanceyplace.

Finally, here’s one for the Buffy fans among my readers (all three of you):

Have a measurably superior weekend!
