I had to visit the clinic earlier due to a strange lump having appeared on my wrist. The nurse says I've got inflamed nerves due to RSI, and I need to cut back a lot on how much I use the computer for at least the next two weeks or until the swelling goes down. Which means I'm not supposed to be writing any fanfiction. Therefore, I'm I probably won't be able to update anything for a while.

Honestly, I'm gutted. I had a target of archiving 300 000 words in my first year of fanfiction and I've got four weeks left and I'm only 15 000 words away. Plus I'm really into these two stories in particular that I'm working on at the moment and I've put in so much work researching them. But the nurse is right - I've literally barely stopped typing these past couple of weeks and it shouldn't really be surprising that my wrist has swollen up. So I guess that means I'm going to be taking a break from writing for a while. And all this medical drama has come about at a time when I was trying to write a medical drama story of my own. Oh the irony.

On the plus side though, at least I feel like a real writer now. I've written so much that I actually have some kind of physical injury to show for it.

I'm trying to do a fanvideo for the fictional character Yassen Gregorovich from the Alex Rider series. The problem is I'm having trouble finding clips. I've got most of the clips from the Stormbreaker movie, in which the character was played by Damian Lewis. He was also in a movie called 'The Baker' which is about an assassin, so I've quite a few good clips I could use from that as as well. However, there are a couple of REALLY good clips I'd like to use from the TV series Life but I can't get hold of them. My video conversion software only works for YouTube and the episodes I want to use the clips from aren't posted there. I've been searching through endless YouTube videos for what I'm after but I can't find them. The clips I want to use are:

From Season Two, Ep 16 "Hit Me Baby": The scene with Crews on the rooftop assembling the sniper rifle. That is just PERFECT.
From Season Two, Ep 17 "Shelf Life": I can't remember if I've got the right episode, but I want the scene with Rayborn on the boat where he tells Crews to eat the scorpion. I thought that would make for a good Scorpia reference.

My computer won't rip copy-protected DVDs and I can't find them on YouTube, so does anyone have any ideas as to how I could get hold of them?

Oh, and I need suggestions for a good song to use as well. I was going to use 'The Assassin' by Iron Maiden, but listening to it it just isn't smooth enough for Yassen. And it's one of Maiden's weaker songs anyway, so I thought I could find something better.
