Vid Recs - Naruto and QaF

OMG, 9 days into January and I've already managed to mess up my one vid rec a day thing. I completely forgot yesterday :S So lets have 2 today to make up for it.

Title: Toushi
(The link above is to, which requires you to be a member to download, I believe. Since that seems like a lot of effort considering most of my flist is not into anime, here's a link to it on YouTube. Be warned though, it loses a lot of quality on YT. If you'd like a copy of the vid, without signing up for, let me know and I'll send you the copy I have in private).
Vidder: Majin Kenshin
Song: Goodbye by SR-71
Fandom/Pairing: Naruto - Gen
Why I Love It: Pretty much all I know of the Naruto fandom I've learned from vids, but even so, I can still pick up on the stories being told within this vid. You can really feel the fight and determination from the kids in here, as well as their insecurities. Not to mention this is just a pretty vid to watch with awesome timing. It's vids like this that really make we jealous of anime and the clean lines and strong colours within it's source material. There are some amazing uses of layers within this vid and the fast paced clip changes fill me with glee. Seriously, I'm doing a horrible job of explaining this vid, because it is far more awesome than I can say.

Title: Last High (about halfway down the page)
Vidder: kitkatbyte and f1renze
Song: You Were the Last High by the Dandy Warhols
Fandom/Pairing: Queer as Folk - Brian/Justin, Brian/Others
Why I Love It: It's like this song was written *just* for this vid. If there was ever a song to describe Brian and his meeting Justin, this song is it. That fact alone would make this a great vid, but add to the fact that it was done by two of the best vidders in the QaF fandom, and it's automatically awesome. All the clips are meaningful ones, and there's lots of clip movement (internal and added) to keep the vid moving along with the slower paced song.
