[personal profile] condnsdmlk and I curated a vidshow about Work at VidUKon this year, and I was really pleased with how it turned out, so I'm posting it here, including the descriptions which we spent a silly amount of time on. Unless otherwise indicated, they're all (sometimes paraphrased) Marx quotes.

Description: An exploration of all work related things -- waged or otherwise. Office work, forced labour, team work, striking, playing hooky...we have it covered.

1. Under Pressure (The Martian) by [personal profile] violace. From each according to ability.

2. Go Places (Parks and Recreation) by [ profile] nicole_anell. When sacrifices benefit all, joy is not limited or selfish -- our happiness will belong to millions.

3. Past in Present (Chak De! India) by [ profile] sol_se. Society is not made up of individuals. It is the sum of interrelations -- the relations within which individuals stand.

4. Tightrope (Mary Poppins) by [personal profile] chaila. "Capitalist production relies on the creation of a particular type of worker, and therefore a particular type of family." - Sylvia Federici

5. The Fucking Manual (The Thick of It) by Trutgras. The bureaucracy is a circle from which no one can escape.

6. Working for a Living (Hustle, Leverage) by [personal profile] thingswithwings. A greater amount of assets increases the power objects have on man; every new product escalates the potential for mutual swindling and plundering.

7. Hello (Kitchen Confidential) by [personal profile] trelkez. Great world-historic facts and individuals appear twice: the first time as tragedy, the second as farce.

8. Piece of Me (Britney Spears RPF) by [ profile] obsessive24. At first sight a commodity might appear obvious and trivial, but look closer and you'll see that it is full of subtleties and spiritual niceties.

9. Tired (Firefly) by [ profile] thedothatgirl. It is only as a worker that she can maintain herself as a physical subject. It is only as a physical subject that she is a worker.

10. Just Dance (Newsies) by [personal profile] ua_the_terrible. The philosophers have only interpreted the world in various ways; the point is to change it.

11. Never Go to Work (Stargate Atlantis) by [personal profile] grammarwoman. The worker feels himself at home only during his leisure time.

12. The Organization and the Assets (multi) by [personal profile] echan. Work is an alienation of life.

13. Freedom (Underground)  by [personal profile] frayadjacent. The most momentous thing happening in the world today is the movement among the slaves.

14. Wretches and Kings (Battlestar Galactica) by [personal profile] jarrow. The history of all previous societies is the history of class struggle.

15. Power in Union (Pride) by [personal profile] condnsdmlk. To each according to need.

Many thanks to everyone who recommended vids for this show!

That's a really cool premise for a vid show!

(There's one typo: it's "Chak De! India")

I was heartbroken to find I'd only saved three Xena icons to my harddrive! Three!! The shame.

Also the caps are all blurry blobs how am I supposed to survive this hardship 😭

From: [personal profile] goodbyebird
I made one tolerable icon, but only because it's Xena wearing a veil so only her eyes are a blurry mess XD

And then I decided to embrace the VidUKon spirit and start on an overly-literal vidlet 💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻

THIS WAS SUCH AN AMAZING SHOW. Like, not just the vids, though they were all amazing, but they way you ordered them so they all spoke to each other. And you picked some really interesting ones that I would never have considered. I loved it. <3

Thank you so much for sharing! I really want to try seeing the whole thing, but it might have to wait until I have someone to watch with :)

This is a really belated comment, but when you posted this initially I didn't have enough time to watch all the vids. Now I've finally had the time to sit down and watch them, I'm in complete awe! What a brilliant premise for a vid show! It made me realise, in a way that I'd never noticed before, that so many TV shows and films consist of viewers watching characters in their workplace -- it's just that their workplace happens to be a spaceship, or a supernatural library, or a roving monster-hunting business, or whatever.
