Alien Series: Stayin' Low! [Festivids '12]  


Song: Stayin' Low! (Bee Gees vs. Lil Jon vs. De La Soul)
Artist: Daily Daze
Fandom: Alien series
Download: here (117 mb)
Streaming: vimeo (hd) | youtube (hd)

Summary: Hopin' she can sock it to me one mo' time.


Notes: Just as Ripley is stayin' alive, so too are the aliens.

I fell in love with Ripley all over again while editing this vid and it made me see just how strong her narrative remains throughout the four films, even as they start to decline in quality (hell, when you strip Alien Resurrection to just the Ripley bits, you really pick up on exactly where Joss was trying to take her character). She's so iconic, such a survivor, and tracing her journey has been an amazing experience which made me appreciate the films even more! *fangirl.gif*

STAYIN' LOW!

3,6,9 damn she fine hopin' she can sock it to me one mo' time
Get low, Get low [x6]
To the window (TO THE WINDOW), to the wall, (TO THE WALL)
To the sweat drop down my balls (MY BALLS)
To all these bitches crawl (CRAWL)
To all skeet skeet motherfucker (MOTHERFUCKER!) all skeet skeet god damn (GOT DAMN)
To all skeet skeet motherfucker (MOTHERFUCKER!) all skeet skeet god damn (GOT DAMN)

Well, you can tell by the way I use my walk,
I'm a woman's man: no time to talk.
Music loud and women warm, I've been kicked around
Since I was born.
And now it's all right. It's OK.
And you may look the other way.
We can try to understand
The New York Times' effect on man.

Whether you're a brother or whether you're a mother,
You're stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
Feel the city breakin' and everybody shakin',
And we're stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive.

Now back, back, back it up
a back, back, back it up
a back, back, back it up
a back, back, back it up
Now stop (O) then wiggle it yeah
Now stop (O) then wiggle it yeah
Now stop (O) then wiggle it yeah
Now stop (O) then wiggle wiggle wit it

Now give me my doe back and go get ya friend
Stupid bitch standing there while I'm drinking my hen
Steady looking at me still asking questions
Times up nigga pass me another contestant
Ho move to the left if you ain't bout 50
Done talk through 3 or 4 songs already
Looking at a nigga with yo palm out
Bitch I ain't even seen you dance
Twerk something baby work something baby
Pop yo pussy on the pole do yo thang baby
Slide down dat bitch a little bit then stop
Get back on the floor catch yo balance then drop
Now bring it back up clap yo ass like hands
I just wanna see yo ass dirty dance
Yin yang we done again
And put it on the map like annnnn

Well now, I get low and I get high,
And if I can't get either, I really try.
Got the wings of heaven on my shoes.
I'm a dancin' man and I just can't lose.
You know it's all right. It's OK.
I'll live to see another day.
We can try to understand
The New York Times' effect on man.

Whether you're a brother or whether you're a mother,
You're stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
Feel the city breakin' and everybody shakin',
And we're stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive.

Damn (GOT DAMN) ya ya’ll twreking alittle bit ladies
But ya got to twrek alittle bit harder then dat
Now right now I need all the ladies dat know they look good tonite (where my sexy ladies)
We want ya’ll to do this shit like this

Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
Bend over to the front touch toes back dat ass up and down and get low (get low)
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
Bend over to the front touch toes back dat ass up and down and get low (get low)
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
Bend over to the front touch toes back dat ass up and down and get low (get low)
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
Bend over to the front touch toes back dat ass up and down and get low (get low)

Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
Get low [x3]
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
Get low [x3]
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive, stayin' alive.

HAAA! I knew it was you ^_^ At least I got you and Nicky's Hollow Crown right. =) Great job and now I will download it for multiple re-watches.

Hee! :D Thank you! I suppose I could have played the game better and went around commenting on my own, but alas. Also as soon as I saw that Hollow Crown vid it was like OH I KNOW WHO MADE THIS. Lolol! Thanks again, hope the Aliens vid holds up on the re-watches. :D

You had me with the banner with Ripley's face on it. That's all I need.
Ugh, shit, this is amazing. I know nothing about vidding, but I know that this video here is perfect. Great job, dear, and thanks so much for sharing. :)

(Also, A+ for the password.)

SHE'S JUST SO FANTASTIC I LUUUFFFF HER! :') And thank you!!! (Omg I ranted so much about her undies in Alien when I watched the whole series in preparation for Prometheus. Like, those clearly don't even fit lol!) Glad you enjoyed the vid. :D
Firework Rocket: fs: aeryn; badassbook232 on February 2nd, 2013 10:26 pm (UTC)
There aren't many (if any) movie characters that I love more than Ellen Ripley. She's just so amazing. Siiiigh. And lol, those undies look extremely uncomfortable. You'd think in the future they'd have invented some super comfy (and fitting) undies? ;P
cortexiphan juice box: [actors] em; cutieface!hollywoodgrrl on February 4th, 2013 04:10 pm (UTC)
Haha! Her choice of undies does improve in the second movie so there's hope for the future still. ;)

I have to say for some reason I I kept disconnecting this with you, despite lots of external evidence to the contrary! Not the editing part, which is obviously brilliant, but for some reason the music choice keeps making me think it's not you. :D Which is really cool, actually, that you can still surprise me like that. :D Downloading for keepsies!
cortexiphan juice box: [sga] those crazy lantis beatshollywoodgrrl on February 2nd, 2013 10:12 pm (UTC)
Interestiiing! Well I do loves me a good mashup, but I suppose this particular blend might be somewhat un-moi. Anyway I'm glad I sorta (not really tho) stumped you. You, meanwhile, had perfect songs that drew me in immediately and I think it's truly wonderful that your style transcends anonymity. ♥
RevolutionaryJo: Politicalrevolutionaryjo on February 3rd, 2013 07:59 pm (UTC)
I adore this! Makes me fall in love with Ripley all over again too. Bravo!

Thank you so much! It certainly fell madly in love with her again. Ripley!

Thank you so much for making this. Believe it or not, you were on my short list of vidders who had the skills to make this, because the cutting and framing is so perfect, and that's always what I remember most when I think of your work. But the content? Not what I think of when I think of your work!

It's exactly what I asked for though, and shows how much thought and care you put into filling my request. It's like you reached into my brain and pulled out specs for exactly the vid I wanted, while making it wholly your own. I love it so much. <3
cortexiphan juice box: [films] a; kill it with firehollywoodgrrl on February 4th, 2013 04:58 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much for requesting this!!! :D Honestly, everything came together when I settled on the song as it allowed for the humorous aspects of your prompt to mix with the dramatic elements of Ripley's story that I desperately wanted to explore. Each time she fought the aliens she lost a piece of herself (which I thought was brilliantly expressed by how her hair got shorter and shorter with each film until she physically resembled the alien) and then of course in the fourth she is is literally made part alien. This is a woman who was third in line for command of the Nostromo. She wasn't the captain, she just happened to survive. It's such an amazing hero journey, UGH I LOVE IT!

I'm absolutely thrilled you enjoyed the vid, all your comments made me absolutely ecstatic! And I'm pleased I managed keep my identity a mystery even just a little. I figured everyone would figure it out pretty fast (I mean they kinda did but still there were some doubts) but I feel like I've vidded some pretty intense stuff before. ;P If a story calls, I'll vid it!

In conclusion: RIPLEY! :D

I can't freaking believe your Mad Editing Skills™. It gets to the cowbell section and I just want to make love to you with timestamp mentions continuously. Equal measures of grossness, amazingness, and humour.

MOAR COWBELL! Lol thank youuuu dear! Juggling the :D and the :'((( in this vid was a nice challenge and I think? it came through. It did for me anyway. THANKS FOR CHECKING IT OUT AND I'M THRILLED YOU ENJOYED! Strong females, aw yiss. ;P
Deej: [hp] hordeej on February 4th, 2013 04:14 pm (UTC)
Ding-ding dong-dong! You did some crazy work keeping the D: dramaz but injecting some of the redonkulous humour of that song. Success, my friend! And damn. Those aliens have amazing falsetto voices on 'em.

I don't feel too capable of commenting on vids, but I'm going to try - that was an incredible blend of music blended with source video:) I'd never have realized someone could make this music go with this source, which is why I love it so much - it works. Also it's longer than most videos and yet you made that work, too. I love it, especially the frenetic mishmash of squirming, bloody aliens that punctuate the vid. I think this is incredible.
cortexiphan juice box: [films] a; kill it with firehollywoodgrrl on February 19th, 2013 07:22 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much for this!!! I'm thrilled you enjoyed the vid and it means even more that it warranted a comment. Thank you! :')
kassidy62kassidy62 on February 20th, 2013 12:22 pm (UTC)
thank you for making it:) You should be getting lots of comments! My fandom friend and I view vidshows on the weekends sometimes and we put your vid in our rotation - it's incredible on a larger screen with decent sound!
cortexiphan juice box: [films] a; kill it with firehollywoodgrrl on February 20th, 2013 01:12 pm (UTC)
Ahh that's so cool! I'm glad your friend enjoyed it too. :)

I spent the afternoon with cupidsbow today and she showed me this vid you made for her. It's nothing short of A-MAZING! Brilliant editing and use of footage and music. Absolutely loved it.
cortexiphan juice box: [films] a; kill it with firehollywoodgrrl on March 3rd, 2013 03:27 pm (UTC)
Aww yay! I'm so thrilled you enjoyed it (and that she still digs it!). THANK YOU! :DDD

Holy crap, this is AWESOME! The music, the clips, the on-the-beat editing, the "feel" -- EVERYTHING. Brilliant and awesome and magnificent and rockin' and I bow at your vid-making feet. \o/
cortexiphan juice box: [films] a; kill it with firehollywoodgrrl on March 4th, 2013 12:00 am (UTC)
Thank you so much! So glad you like it! :D

My mind is BLOWN. This is magnificent. Your editing was incredible, the way you utulised the mash-up and the differing layers of the song- it was AWESOME! Seriously, this video kicked so much ass and I just want to pull out all the Alien movies and have a marathon after this lol. The control you had over the source material was inspired and I loved the way you represented Ripley in this video! You truly exhibited just how bad ass she is...honestly, this video was incredible! Loved it!
cortexiphan juice box: [films] a; kill it with firehollywoodgrrl on March 16th, 2013 04:56 am (UTC)
Thank you so much!!! Perfect gift of a comment. :') So thrilled you enjoyed and GOT the vid!
