girlanachronism: an animated list of reason why I no longer have an appropriate icon (Default)

Even though there are so many things I should be doing right now (To that person I owe fic to: I'm sorry! I'm almost done, I swear!), I'm going to steal a meme from [info]warriorpoet because I have no self control.

A line from 25 random songs. Guess the title and artist. Comments are screened for now so everyone can have a shot at everything. I'm putting your username next to the ones you get right in the meantime :D Googling makes Baby Jesus cry.

I'm taking 'random' to mean put my itunes on shuffle. This may be embarrassing. Don't judge me.

1. Please allow me to introduce myself, I'm a man of wealth and taste. ([ profile] warriorpoet )

2. I've been down across a road or two, but now I've found the velvet sun that shines on me and you.

3. Fill the cavity and you're a God-shaped hole tonight, for what it's worth.

4. And I recall in spring the perfume that the air would bring to the indolent town.

5. There's only room for one and here she comes, here she comes.

6. We will wait for you and lead you through dance floor, up to the DJ booth you know what to ask for.

7. You're just alone when you begin to sing a song that doesn't sing, it grows, you know.

8. When I got to the bedroom there was somebody waiting and it isn't my fault that the barbarian raped me.

9. He started crying, it sounded like an earthquake. ([ profile] warriorpoet)

10. You'll lose everything before the end, still my broken limbs you find time to mend.

11. You can't start a fire, you can't start a fire without a spark. ([ profile] warriorpoet , [ profile] starshine24mc )

12. Whisper words of wisdom. ([ profile] kitsunesan, [ profile] warriorpoet )

13. That could have been the beginning of the end, if I wasn't already in the middle.

14. They say you die faster than without water, but we know it's just a lie to scare your son to scare your daughter. ([ profile] _lady_vanilla_ )

15. Lately you've been tanned, suspicious for the winter.

16. When you're on the street, depending on the street, I bet you're definitely in the top three. ([ profile] warriorpoet)

17. You caught me under false pretenses, how long before you let me go?([ profile] kitsunesan)

18. We rejoice because the hurting is so painless from the distance of passing cars.

19. We should have each other for tea, we should have each other with cream.

20. There's always something happening and it's usually quite loud.([ profile] starshine24mc )

21. But I thought this wouldn't hurt a lot, I guess not.

22. Your feet are going to be on the ground, your head is there to move you around. ([ profile] kitsunesan, [ profile] warriorpoet )

23. I'm taking back the number of the beast because six is not a pretty number, eight or three are definitely better.

24. Relax? Yes, I'm trying, but fear's got a hold on me.

25. Ok, you're kinda sexy, but you're not really special.

Woah. My holidays are being busier than I expected. Shotgun update? I'll take the silence as a yes...

- Had an epic catch-up session of the Bugle. God how I love the Bugle. Especially when John get passionate about gay rights. And when Andy teases John about 'the film career' and John just sort of half-laughs, half-whimpers 'please don't' and it's precious. Oh yeah, and the American! "You meet George Clooney, what are you going to do? Not blow him?" In summary, CATHEDRAL TO THE FACE.

- Damn you, Josh Thomas. Until you my TV gaydar was infallible. *shakes fist*

- Cold Souls is a great film.

- A couple of days ago I saw a preview screening of Sherlock Holmes, and it was ridiculous in every single way, and I quite enjoyed it. And I swear, at one point I genuinely believed Holmes and Watson's potential girlfriend were going to leap at each other across the table a la Jerry Springer and pull each others hair screaming "he's mine, bitch!" - Bought tickets! Futuremusic and BDO, I'm going to be seeing Muse and Franz Ferdinand and the Decemberists and Grinspoon and Lily Allen and Ladyhawke and Empire of the Sun and the Horrors and... I'll shut up now. But still. Festival season. Yay.

- Extra pay has not yet come through. Cannot bring myself to regret buying tickets, though.

- My friends have been forcing me to watch much ridiculous anime, and I think their tendency to call out each others names for a good four or five minutes straight each episode is messing with my mind. But more importantly, the fact that anime subtext is by my standards straight-out dialogue porn. Seriously. One character is trying to fight his old friend because of a third, mutual friend and former leader; "He never looked at me! He looked at you! Always you!" and then the former-leader guy rocks up and assures them he loves them both and was always watching them and my friends fail to see the gayness in that.

- It doesn't help that one of these three guys looks like this:

Yes, that is a guy. I know. Characters in-universe make the same mistake. And stalk him when he is bathing naked. And are traumatised. And then there is the episode where he wears a nurses outfit...
My friends assure me this is normal for anime and I will get used to it eventually.

- Bought Christmas presents. Have literally no money. Extra pay still not through. Grrr. 

- Still haven't posted any pics from the holiday... um... I think some people wanted to see them, but then again you may have just been being polite, so if anyone genuinely does want to see landscape porn, big rocks and seals let me know and  I'll get off my lazy ass and post some. 

- Robert Downey Jr is sex.

  • I have my first three hour exam tomorrow. Wish me luck? Uhm    o.O

  • I just finished the final section of notes for said exam - namely, the sections covering International Law and its relationship with Australian domestic law, Human Rights law and immigration detention, and Indigenous claims to special rights (land rights, mostly.) I sat back and stared at it for a while. Then I labelled it 'Australia: Reasons Why We Fail' in big red letters. Ugh.
  • I think my cousin knows me too well. He's a comic book fanatic, and when I visited him the other day he offered to let me borrow copious amounts of Deadpool and Cable ("Cable and I, we have this don't ask, don't tell thing going on..." "Seeing as he has a lot of my brain, I figured I could take his pancreas. It's only a little pancreas.") and also this other one called the Authority. It involves Superman a solar-powered super-strong flying dude and Batman a black leather cowl-wearing vigilante who likes to kill shit spending a lot of time kissing, getting married, kissing some more, and adopting the spirit of the 21st century. Her name is Jenny.
  • Just as I was beginning to  get addicted to Q&A it finishes for the year. Nevermind. The lack of a fistfight between Joe Hockey and David Marr (who put those two next to each other? Whoever it is, I think I love them) was made up for by the ridiculous awesome rap at the end.

  • Someone I know offered to lend me the new Twilight soundtrack. My instinctive reaction of AHH TWILIGHT KILL IT, KILL IT WITH FIRE was stopped short by the realisation that it had exclusive content from the Killers, Thom Yorke and the Editors, and a Muse remix. Whut. How. Why. Damn you,  Brandon Flowers, damn you very much. You make me abandon my principles. Specifically my anti-sparkling-dickwad-vampires-and-eyeball-destroying-mary-sue-romance principles.  

Here, have some Russian dancers mucking about on the beach during the Ballet Russes Australian tour in 1939.

For... no particular reason. Oh shut up, you.

The new Muse album isn't out yet, but I found free streaming of the whole thing here and it is making me VERY HAPPY INDEED.


(I'm sort of a fan, and I kind of like it.)

I think I shall go listen to it again.
