Looking for AVPSY gifs? So are we. We are amassing a sourced collection right here!

That twirling Darren Criss gif really speaks to us.

What will the Twihards do now that Twilight is coming to an end?  We’ve got 20 fandom suggestions, from different young adult novels (The Mortal Instruments has vampires!) to catching up on everything StarKid…

We’re thrilled to premiere Charlene Kaye’s latest video off her Animal Love album, “Forever Is A Long Time.”  We got some insight from Miss Kaye herself about the style and motivation behind the video treatment.

I wanted do a ballsy rock video, something that would really capture the chaos and panic of the song,” Kaye explained. “Liam got a bunch of public access footage and projected it over us, and if you look closely you can see that there are two narratives going on- one of the past, and of the present, which is something I think is really beautiful and relevant to the song. The shots range from bombs raining down during WWII to old circus acts in the 1920s to the Hindenberg exploding, so there’s no lack of things to look at!”

Here it is, the final StarKid video we promised (in a player our non-US friends can use!)  For their last quiz we thought we’d give the gang something easy — Harry Potter.  Team StarKid should be experts, but are they?

Watch this raw cut of Brian, Meredith, Darren, Joe, Brian and Joey trying to guess the fake quote from the final Potter book. And don’t forget to watch our 50 Shades of Grey and Catching Fire videos too.  We can’t wait for your GIFs…

when will you be posting the bonus starkid video?

While we’re risking into DarrenCriss.com this Sunday, we’d say check your dash around dinner time (for the east coast) and you’ll be very happy.

Heads up StarKids!

We know we promised a bonus video this week, but we’re having some Tumblr upload issues!  We’re going to try on a new computer later tonight/tomorrow, but SIT TIGHT.  We know you’re going to love this video quiz, it’s on a topic very close to Team StarKid’s heart…. ;)

Yesterday we put Team StarKid through the pop culture paces with a 50 Shades of Grey quiz – and they failed, spectacularly.  However, we’re kind and we decided to give them a second chance on a slightly less NC-17 piece of work and see if they could rise to the occasion.

Today’s challenge – Catching Fire, the second book in the Hunger Games trilogy. They may not know much about BDSM romance novels, but we’re hoping they do a bit better on post-apocalyptic societies — their most recent tour was the Apocalyptour, after all.

Remember, we’ll release a special Tumblr-only video this week as a thank you for all your StarKid + VH1 love!

Team StarKid play Guess The Fake Quote

During their Apocalyptour we sat the StarKid’s down for a little pop culture guessing game. They may be masters of pop culture parody, but how up to date are they?  Can they tell what’s real and what we faked?

First up — 50 Shades of Grey.  Do the StarKids know a thing or two about the most popular BDSM series? Click and find out.

Check back tomorrow when we quiz them on Hunger Games: Catching Fire.  And, if you guys can drive up the viewcounts on these we’ll have an extra video at the end of the week in the Tumblr player (so you non-US fans can watch it easily!)

(Warning: One swear word in this video, so it’s slightly NSFW!)
