God's Gonna Cut You Down.

Iron Man on a Johnny Cash mission. Rick Rubin produces.
XVid, 25MB.
[livejournal.com profile] shoiryu pointed me to this version of the song back in the day for Papa Winchester, but ever since that DOOMTHREAD-PRIME conversation about how post-movie Tony still sees the world as black and white, with-me-or-against-me in essentially the same way as he did at the beginning of the movie, though with the lines of good and bad redrawn a bit, this has been obsessively in my head as the song for post-Afghanistan Tony.

So yeah, a vid about Tony Stark's little proto-soul and, uh, not much more nuanced worldview. More than any of the other vids, it baaaadly needs recutting once the DVD is out, but OMG IT IS DONE NOW IT IS DONE.

GUYS. Pepper POV of Tony vid set to this song.

...

I'm having difficulty stitching together anything longer than a paragraph or two these days and am having, you know. General crushing anxiety about writing dialogue and characterizing and trying to get into the fictional space for Iron Man, but I still feel the irresistible need to share. Aren't you lucky?

Four same-universe Iron Man snippets about Tony and his parents. )

Very easy: Falling in love with Iron Man, the Religious Experience.
Easy: Making a vid of Iron Man to rap-meets-dance-techno-disco-thingy-with-robots.
Hard: Making a vid of Iron Man to banjos and emo folk.
Hardest: Not strangling the woman who was talking through Iron Man and making sarcastic, insulting remarks about how she didn't want to see RDJ pull tubes out of his nose. Shut up, I do.

UNBELIEVABLY CHRISTINGLY, FUCK-A-DUCK DIFFICULT: MAKING A VID TO FUCKING JOHNNY CASH. YOU'D THINK THAT THIS WOULD BE LIKE FALLING OUT OF BED EASY. TONY STARK IS ON A MISSION. GOD SAYS SO. BUT NO. I CANNOT GET BEYOND THE FIRST FIFTY SECONDS OR SO AND THE LAST FORTY SECONDS. THE SONG IS ONLY TWO MINUTES THIRTY-ODD.

...

So, yes, have this instead (13MB, Xvid, reaaaaaaally shitty encode). It's probably funny only to, you know. Me. But it's been a long day, and remember when I was warning you, [livejournal.com profile] dafnap and [livejournal.com profile] gabby_silang, not to encourage me? Indeed.

(And yes, it's supposed to cut out at about a minute. I still had another joke about Obie and the pizza box, but I realized that the abomination should just be put out of its misery. Any sentiment that I am high-minded or intellectual should be put to rest after this, too.)

Tony Stark set to Kanye West and Daft Punk

The song is on my default playlist, and last week, in the throes of full-blown fandom crazy, I started obsessing about what a fantastic track this would make for an Iron Man vid. And then one of the DOOMTHREADS -- it is 4:30AM, and I am too brainfried to figure out where, even with Gmail's halfway decent search engine -- somebody mentioned wanting to see it. And uh. I was too tired to write tonight, so here! HAVE MY OBSESSION.

Started at 10PM or so of Friday night, finished around 4AM of Saturday morning. Not much in the way of movie-independent storytelling, which is probably why it came together so easily. It usually takes me about eight hours per minute, but I banged this together in way, way under that. Think more like a 5:20 recap of the movie than anything else.

Freedom Hangs Like Heaven.

Iron Man set to Iron and Wine.
20MB, XviD or play in VLC

I'm going to end up recutting this when the DVD comes up because right now, there's this CERTAIN SCENE where SOME FUCKING DOUCHEBAG decides to HANG HIS FUCKING HAND off the side of the CAMERA and then some other asshole walks across andf;lkjgdf. I couldn't figure out a way to cut around it, so that scene sucks. And there's one bit where Rhodey is a talking head, but I figured that I've wasted a week of my life already on this.

So yes. Iron Man and Iron and Wine with Calexico production. And just ignore the fact that they use the wrong reign/reins on that Forbes cover. XD

On the Iron Man novelization. Tony Stark is a Yankees fan! )

In the world where, by the way, where I walk in rainbows and unicorns and fluffy non-allergenic kittens, fandom would also provide me with thinky fic interfacing Tony charming the CEO's of, you know. Nice, friendly organizations like Blackwater and Halliburton so that Obediah can sell them weapons.

Which is to say, that I saw Iron Man for the second time today, and it was so much fun that I kept getting distracted by the awesomepants and funny and falling in love with Robert Downey Jr all over again instead of, you know. Focusing on exactly getting Stark's personality and mannerisms down so that I can write dirty, dirty fic about the time Pepper did catch him doing something worse.

But really, it ties into something I've been puzzling over for Rome fic for a while: how do you make a guy like Mark Antony or Tony Stark be loyal to you? Or more accurately, what kind of interesting stories can I tell about earning Antony or Stark's loyalty?

Which is not to say that Antony and Stark are the same person. Rambling and thinking-through as I type. )

SO YES, A LOT OF WORDS TO DESCRIBE A BUNCH OF TRAITS THAT ARE, IN FACT, INTUITIVELY OBVIOUS.
