Song: Like it or Not
Artist: Madonna
Vidder: Grey Bard
Fandom: Primeval
Pairing(s) and/or Genre: Helen Cutter character study with some Helen/Nick and Helen/Stephen
Spoilers: All of seasons 1-3
Summary: Helen Cutter does not care about your thoughts on yaoi ecoterrorism.
Warnings: Animals killing people, character death, short clips and flashes native to source.

Notes: Special effects assistance and vid betaing from [personal profile] jmtorres , who taught me all I know. Further viewing and advice from [profile] mosellegreen , echan, [personal profile] elspethdixon  and [personal profile] seanchai . I am a proud member of The House of Torres vidding group. This video premiered at Vividcon 2011.

Technical Notes: This vid was created from start to finish - with the exception of precisely one special effect - on a netbook. The programs I used are:

-This hack (which you're going to need to reinstall every time Windows updates but oh well) will fool your netbook into thinking it has greater resolution and thus allow you to run video editing programs that require it. (Free!)

- Corel Video Studio (I use it on my netbook, I like it a lot, and it does everything I could ask. Full version free for a month, and MUCH cheaper than Adobe if you choose to buy. Like 3 times cheaper. It costs more than when I bought an earlier version last year, but it's still relatively cheap and a month is enough time to make a vid anyhow.)



Lyrics:
You can call me a sinner
You can call me a saint
Celebrate me for who I am
Dislike me for what I ain’t
Put me up on a pedestal
Or drag me down in the dirt
Sticks and stones will break my bones
But your names will never hurt

I’ll be the garden, you’ll be the snake
All of my fruit is yours to take
Better the devil that you know
Your love for me will grow
Because

This is who I am
You can like it or not
You can love me or leave me
Cause I’m never gonna stop, no no

(Musical interlude)

Cleopatra had her way
Mata Hari too
Whether they were good or bad
Is strictly up to you

Life is a paradox
And it doesn’t make much sense
Can't have the femme without the fatale
Please don’t take offense

This is who I am
You can like it or not
You can love me or leave me
Cause I’m never gonna stop,

No no, you know

No no, you know
No no, you know
No no, you know
No no, you know
