tech query? Clex cuteness! [Aug. 9th, 2009|07:23 pm]

Anyone know how to convert a WindowsMovieMaker file into a WMV file or AVI?

Tom's playing jokes again! Link

Unlike me to throw Al Gough some praise, but I hadn't seen this quote from CFQ Spotlight magazine and really love it! He's talking about "Phoenix":

"......and you also had my favorite reuniting scene, which was Clark and Lex. It was like the lovers reunite. It's like Clark was on the farm and Lex was lost at war and has finally come home."

D'awww!!!! That's like a twitter-length fanfic!

Of course Al Gough was a slasher. Hee! He's right though. The soul-deep love the two of them have for each other is so clear in that scene. That's why it hurts so much in "Shattered" when Clark leaves Lex at Morgan Edge's.

I always root for him to run back, scoop Lex up and run away with him!

Wow, Al gets it. I had no idea. That's a great quote. And the Phoenix hug is the best hug in the history of the series, no question!

Do you have the source files, or just the WMM file? You need the source files, too.

I do have the source files - I was hoping to cut away the parts I didn't want in WMM and then save as a WMV (reducing a 10 minute clip to 2 one minute clips.) I guess that doesn't work?

BTW, I've gotten this far thanks to you, using you decrypter/Virtual Dub method!

This will happen again. In magical AU land. Lex will just turn up at the farmhouse one day and Clark will grab him and nearly squish him with joy and they'll work through that little "tried to kill you" issue. Now Blana's out of the picture, the way is clear. Of course I do not count Lois.

Wouldn't that be amazing? I get happy enough over Michael/Tom hugs let alone a proper Clex reunion!

It totally is! The next scene should have been passionate reunion sex in the barn!

GAH!!!! *izincoherent* That's *exactly* how that scene played out!!!!!From the oh-so romantic music to the slow motion hug and the full body contact hug!!!! If it had been a man and woman in that there'd be no doubt *in anybody's mind* that the renuion was meant to be seen as a romantic one.

It always pleases me when the producers acknowlege the subtext between Clark and Lex on this show. It shows that they *do* get it

I for sure have my criticisms of Al & Miles but I will always love them for giving us so many great Clex moments.

Yes, you've described it perfectly!

I think there should be a challenge to write that fic, just because. See how many different scenarios we can get from it.

But omg, what a beautiful moment between them. If this show had been on Showtime, they could have dismissed all of this silly nonsense with girls and let the real epic love story between Superman and Lex Luthor develop. :P

Oh, Showtime would be a dream network for SV!

Hmmmm....reunion hug followed by sex in the barn. Or sex in the moving truck. Or sex in Lex's car. Or sex in front of a traumatized Lana...

Wow, I'm having a tough time reconciling that's really a quote from Al. Our Al - Al of the Goughlar? Heh. Good for him though for liking it. One of my favorite scenes too from an equally outstanding ep.

Well, I always thought that Al Gough was deeply unappreciated and unfairly maligned.

...OK, no I didn't. He's still an idiot, but he does make the occasional comment of genius. There's been a few things that he said, mostly back in the good old days before the show turned to crud, that makes me think that once upon a time he did have a great idea and vision for the show and the Clark-Lex story, and it could have been fantastic. I still hope that one day when the show is finally done we'll find out where it all went so horribly wrong and who was to blame.

For me, Clex - even by S7 - still out-chemistries every other 'ship on television. So I will always appreciate Al/Miles for that, even if at least part of that was forged by the actors working against the script, ie Michael writing his own lines for the final scene.

I think Al/Miles always had trouble parsing the good ideas from the bad: if Clex was good, why then Clexana will be scorching! On the other hand, I don't know if Al/Miles would have used a fake!Lex...after fake!Lex, I rather wished the show had ended with the S7 finale.

Not even Al Gough can completely deny the wonder of the Clex!

And that Phoenix hug is one of the most awesome moments of the entire series. *melts*
