Reactions/ReviewsThis vid was recommended by Magician113 on Crack Van on June 27, 2008:
"The way Jamie pairs up the lyrics with the scenes is awesome. And, if you’re a Blair babe, he’s the focal point in this clever fanvid.
Watching vids is always fun – so much eye candy; yowza! It’s like reading PWPs. Sometimes a vid will tell a story and that’s even sweeter. What makes this one rock is Jamie’s coupling of clips to lyrics. It’s obvious how much thought (and work) went into it.
Example: As you listen to the line “you tell me don’t lie”, the scene is from Blind Man’s Bluff where Jim is blind but they are keeping that fact from Simon. Jim accidentally clocks Blair and the clip shows Blair holding his head *just* as Simon catches on. Skillfully done. She also uses a wide variety of clips – I counted at least 25 episodes. Blair’s had some *really* bad days. ::snickers::
Jamie delivered the same excellence with “Unwell”, a vid that’s all Jim. In fact, I consider these a matched set – like salt and pepper shakers. I’ve seen several vids done to the Matchbox 20 song, but this one is really special. I’m limited to one vid rec, so all I’ll say is look at the scene she uses for the lyrics “…I know they’ve all been talking ‘bout me, I can hear them whisper…” As Blair would say, “Beautiful”.Since all her vids are at the same site, give yourself a treat. Download both Bad Day and Unwell and watch them as a “double feature”. I think they go together brilliantly."
" Last year I recced Jamie’s “Unwell” vid, which was all about Jim. I saw this and immediately considered it a companion piece with the spotlight on Blair. I’m blown away by Jamie’s use of the scenes to fit the lyrics and the professional cuts. The way it all fits together into a cohesive work is just wonderful. She also uses a wide variety of episodes – I counted at least 25. This was her Moonridge 2007 offering. (Thanks Tany Z for bidding to create both of these great vids.) If you missed “Unwell”, you can find it at the same site. I would recommend downloading them both and watching them as a set. It will definitely put a smile on your face."
