Dessa Playlist - Wiscon 2014  
Curated for WisCon (wiscon_vidparty) 2014, "Dessa" - Collection of vids with music from Dessa.

Dessa is a writer, spoken word artist, rapper, and singer with work that contain narratives of female self-reliance. With the lens of feminist science fiction in mind, I curated a list of vids that meld with her unique wit and flow to exemplify the multiple media narratives available in our vidding world.

1. giandujakiss's Seamstress (Nikita)
2. isagel's Skeleton Key (Person of Interest)
3. astartexx's Matches to Paper Dolls (The X-Files)
4. sabrina_il's Dixon's Girl (X-Men)
5. beccatoria's Poor Atlas (Battlestar: Galactica)
6. chaila's Seamstress (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles)
7. chaila's Sound the Bells (Pacific Rim)

Also, how freaking brill is this poster for the vid discussion by Jack Shoegazer? The answer is very.

And I'm linking to the Thank Heaven for Little Girls Playlist - WisCon 2013 from last year (Collection of vids about little girls: their protectors, their victims, their worlds, their families, their missions, their deaths...)

Originally I had intended to include addition vids, but needed to cull the playlist for length, repetitions, and stricter adherence to themes. These vids were not included in the playlist, I did want to provide links for others.

chaila's The Crow (Luther)
milly's Mineshaft (Game of Thrones)
genusshrike's In the Bullpen (Avengers)
chaila's Dutch (The Wire)
lith's Children's Work (Life)
kiki_miserychic's Dutch (Hell on Wheels)
beccatoria's Matches to Paper Dolls (The Great Queen Seondeok)
chaila's Mineshaft (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles)

Please, if you have links to other vids of Dessa's music, leave links in the comments. Thank you.

talitha78's Matches to Paper Dolls (Burn Notice)

Variety is for people that don't realize that there should be a vid for every song in her catalog.

Thank you for letting me. I already have ideas for next year, lol.

Ohh, thank you. That is a popular one. I really like looking at how different people interpreted the lyrics and what editing choices they made.

Oh, interesting! I'm curious to see which Dessa song wins for most vids; right now it looks like Matches to Paper Dolls is ahead which sort of surprises me, actually. I would have guessed Seamstress.

Also, if you're making a list of all Dessa vids, let it be known: I've vidded Dessa! Sadie Hawkins (Criminal Minds): http://ghost-lingering.dreamwidth.org/143187.html

And then I've also vidded a Doomtree song that features Dessa, as well as Cecil Otter & POS. Jaded (Velvet Goldmine): http://ghost-lingering.dreamwidth.org/147620.html

I think Matches to Paper Dolls has the kind of lyrics that can retrofit to lots of relationships and fandoms. I'm surprised there's so many of them.

Ohh, thanks for those links. Putting them on my watch list too.
