Oh, with the pretty. I have some trouble with the flickering in frame. I get that it's supposed to match the beat, but considering the awesome movement throughout, I think it's unnecessary. But that's just me. Otherwise, love!

Here is a proper rec:


Stay Awake by Laura Shapiro is a haunting, evocative contemplation of the pregnancy trope in sci-fi TV that considers the appropriation of female bodies and the act of "reproductive terrorism" (Shapiro). Suzanne Vega's spare acapella version of Stay Awake from Mary Poppins laid against clips from popular sci-fi TV creates a restrained and chilling commentary on the way this cliche enacts violence against the most traditional location of female identity. Our heroines are reduced to their most fundamental and gendered function, and attacked. Regardless of how bad ass they may be.

Possibly one of the best vids ever. Gorgeous, haunting, and meta-tastic. [personal profile] laurashapiro's Stay Awake knocks me flat. Stay Awake beautifully considers the appropriation of female bodies and acts of reproduction (as event and terrorism) in this vid and it is, indeed, a thing of wonder. Makes me want to write an essay or something. The music is perfectly spare, restrained, and plays beautifully against the horror inspired by the accompanying visuals. Just gorgeous. Get thee hence and watch.

I find this rather charming. The back and forth, the intense glares. Oh, love.

It's kinda fun. I will admit to an affection for 2:29. :)
