that post was really one of her best. it makes me tear up again just thinking about it. maybe what makes it's so good is the fact that, like I said on that post, her writing comes from the heart. no pretenses, no nothing. just her and a mother's unconditional love for her children.

Oldies but goodies, I was surfing online and I found that video recorded in July 2012 (almost one hour of Mayim) from the website: Zocalo Public Square.

She's interviewed by someone from the Huffington post and she's talking about TBBT but not only.

She's very chatty and that's always a pleasure to listen to her :)

This was wonderful!  Thank you so much!!

There's a song (recorded by several artists, including Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin) called Once in love with Amy.

 

Maybe you could do something with that.

i have that in  my story ICSD  Here: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10503204/39/Intimacy-Collaboration-for-Systematic-Desensitization

 

I got you Stephen.  I got all your Amy Fantasies.  Hubba hubba!

 

Well, not all... WInk wink

I know it sounds daft but, much as I like Mayim, I like Amy more.

 

Actually no.

 

The song I'm thinking of is a different one.

 

Its the same song. I used the original and edited it for content.  Its the same song though.  The lyrics ONce in love with Amy, always in love with Amy... 

 

Same song.. Dean does it better...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=puvavzSbgS0

It's the introduction that fooled me.  :icon_redface:

 

Oh, and I've changed the video to Frank Sinatra, who does it even better.

Frank is the best... I just love that song for Amy.  I had to have it in my FF.  I know most didnt know what is was or really knew it, but I always think of Amy when I hear it.  In SHeldon's voice, of course...  ahhh Shamy feels...

Is it weird, that I've fallen in love with a character?

Go over to the Jim Parson's thread.  Its not that weird.  I love and admire her character and the actress. There is just so much awesome and i think Mayim brings it to the role.  But Amy is a spicy little vixen... I cant wait till she gets what's hers!!

Wow, that would be perfect!  Thanks for thinking of that.  I’ll find it and get to work on compiling and editing this week.   Now give me your guys’ opinion:  Should I just use publicity photos of her or everything at my disposal, including i.e. instagram, fan montages, ones of her alone or with others, etc.?  I have a big collection of photos I've accumulated through this site as well as many others, so there's a vast amount from which to choose.  What’s the general concensus?  Of course, the more pics I use, the faster the images will move to fit to the length of the song.  Just something to keep in mind.  Also, if anybody has any thoughts about what they’d like the message to say to her, such as Happy Birthday, Mayim!  From All Your Fans at The Big Bang Theory Official Fan Forum; We love you! etc.  You get the gist.
 
Just some things to consider.  Once I have a rough copy, I’ll post the link to it on here for your guys’ review and opinions, and then I can re-edit based on your suggestions.  Sound good?
 
I was playing The Way You Look Tonight, Frank Sinatra’s version, today, and that could work also.  Plus, it's a song that was mentioned on the show by Amy in The Reflection Countdown from Season 5.  So I think of it as kind of her song.  Actually, because the film would be for Mayim's birthday and would have pics of mainly Mayim as Mayim, maybe we shouldn't use the Amy song, as it would sound like it was for Amy.  Even though she plays Amy, she is not Amy.  You see what I mean?  Just a thought.

I'd say use whatever images seem appropriate, but don't cram in so many, that they flash by.

 

We want to savour each image.

 

One thing I would suggest is, when you get to the line "Ever and ever sweetly you'll romance her", cut to an image of her at the wedding with Leonard, then, for the next line "Trouble is the answer will be, that Amy would rather stay in love with me", cut to one of her kissing Sheldon.

 

Of course, I'm no expert, but it just seems a nice idea to me.

It could work but, IMHO, it should be a song that reflects the fact, the video comes from her BBT fans, so it should refer specifically to Amy,

It's really Ray Bolger's (the Scarecrow from Wizard of Oz)  song though, it was Ray's signature song, and I think the best version.

Unlike the lovely lady, I'm not a vegan, but I am a vegetarian.

 

I don't think I could go vegan, because I like Quorn, eggs (I always buy Free Range), Semolina Pudding, etc.

 

Interesting to note (but not a criticism) that Amy is a meat eater.

But it's for Mayim's birthday, and she is not all parts Amy.  I have made films of Amy and Sheldon, and they are in the fan fic forum, which is what they are fictional.  A birthday tribute film should be a compilation of the person's life.  It would have pics of her as Amy maybe from the set but not scenes from the show; it would mainly be pics of Mayim as Mayim.  I think you guys have a totally different idea of what I'm thinking of doing, which is a tribute to Mayim, not to Amy, who's not even a real person!

More's the pity.  :icon_frown:  

I understand your pain.  Here's something for you to help you dream of her.  It's from May following the Season 7 finale, and it's called The Shamy Years.

Here's what I came up with for Mayim for her birthday.  It's a rough cut right now; there is no particular order to the pics now, and I have to swap out a few, especially one of her as Amy in lab coat.  It's just too blurry, but I have ones I can substitute for it.  I think the general concept works though and would be a fitting tribute to her.  I just stuck in that first Sinatra song as a holder for now, but I kind of like it.  Anyway, give it a look, and let me know what you all think. Then we could post it to her site, her instagram or wherever.
