VID - Runs in the Family - Hannibal  

vid title: Runs in the Family
music: Amanda Palmer
source: Hannibal (NBC)
duration: 2:52
notes: I could go on and on about Abigail Hobbs and the show, but I don't think my vid notes is the place to do it. I have an intense amount of notes for this vid and I didn't use half of the ideas I had. I might do a whole post of my notes in the future.

my friend has problems with winter and autumn
they give him prescriptions, they shine bright lights on him
they say it’s genetic, they say he can’t help it
they say you can catch it - but sometimes you’re born with it

my friend has blight he gets shakes in the night
and they say there's no way that they could have caught it in
time takes its toll on him, it is traditional
it is inherited predisposition

all day i’ve been wondering what is inside of me, who can i blame for it

i say:

it runs in the family, this famine that carries me
to such great lengths to open my legs
up to anyone who’ll have me
it runs in the family, i come by it honestly
do what you want ‘cause who knows it might fill me up...
fill me up...

my friend’s depressed, she’s a wreck, she’s a mess
they’ve done all sorts of tests and they guess it has something to do with her grandmother’s
grandfather’s grandmother civil war soldiers who
badly infected her
my friend has maladies, rickets, and allergies that she dates back to the 17th century
somehow she manages - in her misery - strips in the city
and shares all her best tricks with

me? well, i’m well. well, i mean i’m in hell. well, i still have my health
(at least that’s what they tell me)
if wellness is this, what in hell’s name is sickness?
but business is business

and business
runs in the family, we tend to bruise easily
bad in the blood i’m telling you ‘cause
i just want you to know me
know me and my family
we’re wonderful folks but
don’t get too close to me ‘cause you might knock me up...
knock me up...

mary have mercy now look what i’ve done
but don’t blame me because i can’t help where i come from
and running is something that we’ve always done
well and mostly i can’t even tell what i’m running from

i run from their pity
from responsibility
run from the country
and run from the city

i can run from the law
i can run from myself
i can run for my life
i can run into debt

i can run from it all
i can run till i’m gone
i can run for the office
and run from the cause

i can run using every last ounce of energy
i cannot
i cannot
i cannot
run from my family
they’re hiding inside me
corpses on ice
come in if you’d like
but just don’t tell my family
they’d never forgive me
they’d say that i’m crazy
but they would sign anything if it would
shut me up...
shut me up...

I was like, "I should not watch this I should finish my Hannibal vid," except I have zero impulse control and now I am 99.9% OMG THIS VID IS THE BEST VID IN THE WORLD EVER and 00.1% CRAP NOW I HAVE TO TAKE THE CELLO STUFF OUT :P

So, so much love! <3 The musicality is guh and the clip choices and blends are inspired and Jesus Christ, Abi *HANDS*

I am the same way. I have this fear of ripping someone off subconsciously and then looking like a jerk. I say keep your cello stuff. It calls out to be used in every Hannibal vid. The same way I love Welcome to NightVale vids that start with "and now, the weather." It simply fits.

Thank you. ABIGAIL!!!!

LOL, I'm glad it still looks amazing even when you don't know the source.

Holy crap. I am sitting here in awe. I cannot process this awesomeness.

God damn, the sudden break at 1:08 with a long clip is effective. It's like I can finally breathe but it's a really, really fucked up breath.

AUGH this is GREAT. Some of those clip/lyric matchups are just brilliantly sick and wrong and WONDERFUL and PERFECT. I think my favourite might be "hiding inside of me" while Abigail takes a bite of people. :D

That was the first lyric my brain matched up. So many terrible, terrible choices, lol.

I have seen this video so many times already and realized I'd never commented! So, thank you for this amazing vid which is unsettling and rich and so apt for the show!!!

;) Thanks. I hope to one day make someone throw up. I didn't think it would be this one, but a girl can dream. Abigail will always, always be a character I love to a delusional level. I layered so much stuff in this vid, omg, it's like taco dip.

Perfect song; perfect editing. You were tremendously, stunningly brilliant at crafting this knife of a fanvid. Abigail is such a tragic character and you capture that very well.
kiki_miserychickiki_miserychic on August 5th, 2014 05:28 pm (UTC)
Thank you. I love Abigail so much. Her character is intensely interesting to me.
