(Recs) The BMVD

Something I've been meaning to mention for a while is that the Buffyverse Music Video Database is back online. (And has been for about 4 weeks now, hence the "for a while" bit :-) ). If you've never seen the site, it's an indexed list of over 2,000 Buffy fanvids, searchable by character/pairing, category, vidder name, and so forth. (Although not by song artist, unfortunately). It was also pretty much my introduction to vidding, a couple of years ago. 

A friend on RPGnet had recced a vid by sdwolfpup, and I fell in love with the concept, but spent a long time not really knowing how to find others like it. (I wasn't on LJ then). I followed links and recs from one site to another... and then I found the BMVD and it was like striking the motherlode. I spent hours browsing through it downloading anything that caught my eye, and eventually decided to take the plunge and try making one myself. (And I've now got my own vids listed on the BMVD, under StephenT rather than  stormwreathsince I hadn't made up that name back then....)

Just over a year ago, the database suffered file corruption and went offline. It's now under new ownership, rebuilt and up and running again, and I'd definitely recommend having a look at it.

*Trivia note* The one of my vids that's been clicked on the most at the BMVD is the Willow /Tara one. The least favourite is the more recent Faith one - and there's a 2-1 difference between them. Does nobody like Faith? :-(
