    Magic is impressive, but now Boo leads... fiddles for everyone!

    Very cool video. This Lindsey looks a little like the Lohan, except sexier and without the crazy.
    I like the eyes at 1:56. Helm sees all! Know that and be judged!

    She's very clever. I've seen her before, riding on the wave of popular games with equal parts of cosplay and cool music. She had alot of views on her Skyrim and AC videos IIRC.

    I don't think it's fair to say that she's "clever" and "riding on the wave". I found out about her long before she started doing this, because I heard her music on Pandora. I think it's obvious she's doing this because she's enjoying it. No reason to compliment her like she's devious.

    Looks like I've finally found my new Heather Alexander.

    Her Shatter Me album is only 5.99 USD at Amazon.

    Taking advantage of business opportunities isn't devious. It can be clever though. I find that an odd interpretation by you. She obviously enjoys her work, like most artists, but would still like to get paid and gain exposure. That's only logical, and I don't think Skatan called her clever in a demeaning way.

    You have two popular artists. One is renown for the clever way he is able to ride on the wave of the popular. The other is renown for composing and performing music that possesses a unique quality of ecstatic joy. Which artist is better?

    Define "better" in context. I bet the guy who rides the popularity wave is richer and more famous. Lots of people would define that as the "better" outcome

    @vladpen: Don't draw conclusions based on incorrect interpretations of my intentions. It would have been better to write it out as a question rather than a statement. I gave her a compliment and when saying she's clever I mean just that; she's clever. Nothing more, nothing less. If you think clever = devious, that's up to you, but don't apply your personal opinions on others.

    Of course she's riding on the wave of popular games while cosplaying and performing music from the games. Does that make her devious? Of course not, it makes her smart and not at all less talented.

    And about the "better artist" question, that's subjective and there's no correct answer, so no point in discussing it really.

    If I had to guess, I'd say that Bioware approached her for the video, rather than the other way around. It's not "riding the wave of success" if you're just saying yes to a contract.

    Bioware. Those greedy corporate bastards.

    What does it say about Dragon Age: Inquisition that it's riding on the wave of Lindsey Stirling's success?

    That depends on factors completely unrelated to what you are talking about...

    That was painful to watch.

    Really like the music. Not so much with the cheesy video.
