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.

Dear John and Andy,

Only days after discovering that Tom is headed for certain heatstroke down my end of the world, I turned on the news and discovered that ranting xenophobe politician Pauline Pantsdown Hanson has announced she is moving to Britain.

It is very clear what has happened here, and as a loyal Bugler I feel it my duty to tell you that you are getting shafted. You are sending us a member of the Bugle family and you're getting Nick Griffin without the y chromosome (but with more remixing experience, which I know you like) in return. I can only assume large amounts of alcohol were involved in the decision making process. Or maybe a dastardly but understandable trick by my desperate nation to get rid of her. In any case, surely it's not to late to change your mind.

We'll keep Tom though. He's lovely.

- Got home restless, so I did end up posting a few of those things I found on the old hard drive and mentioned here. Only the Boosh drabbles so far, not sure what to do with the longer fakenews stuff yet.  here be gratuitous siege weaponry and glitter (at my... fic journal. Um. It has been pointed out to me this is no use if no one knows I have one. Good point, you-know-who-you-are. So there, is that pimped enough for you? ♥)

- Montgomery Clift is a gorgeous, gorgeous man, and From Here To Eternity made me cry. Especially the Frank Sinatra bits. He out-acted the actors.

- I played my ipod on shuffle for half an hour today, and the most cheerful song to come on was "One of Us Is Gonna Die Young". Do you think it's trying to tell me something?

I was also a part of this glorious conversation (loud, and on crowded public transport) with a friend.

Me: But she's bisexual.
Him: Ew, that means she takes it up the ass!
Me:  (long pause) what?
Him: I... I don't even know.

Just read in his blog that Neil Gaiman has written a Doctor Who episode. To be used in the far future (not the season coming up, but the next one) so it may not make it, but still.

As some of you may know, my laptop got broken over New Year, and I lost everything on it. I wasn't that bothered, really, because it was mostly uni stuff and since it's between years there was nothing on there I needed to save. But I was a bit sad about the fic bits and pieces.

Anyway, today I found an old back up drive, IDK, maybe a year old? I spent way to much time looking through all the old files. It was awesome :D all this stuff I'd forgotten starting, stuff I thought was lost, stuff I can't even identify as coherent sentences...

I'm kinda tempted to take some of them up again. But I haven't written much for ages now, I think I'd be even worse than when I started, if that was possible.

Besides, there's just so much! Seriously, whole piles of fakenews stuff; the first chapter of a sort of record-store au I started once, the first chapter of a film noir-ish mystery thing (which I had a sort of plot outline to at one point but I forgot it and it's not on the harddrive, so I too have no idea how it ends), a couple of random pieces of girl!Ollie and girl!Riggle, all sorts of stuff. And there's some random Good Omen-esque conversations I think I wrote before I even knew what fandom was. Little romantic Mighty Boosh fragments, too.

Oh, and for some reason roughly page long story about Howard Moon and Vince Noir buying a catapault (wtf, past-me?)

So, uh, there's is no point to this post, really, just my manic need to put my indecision into writing: on the one hand, I remember these ideas! Some of them were fun, and there are bits I still like!  On the other hand... writing is hard... and I fail at it. Really bad.

Maybe someone could adopt some of the ideas. Or something.

I might post the catapault thing for laughs, though. Gotta do something to distract myself from the fact that I broke up with my boyfriend right before fucking Valentines day *headdesk* I hate pink hearts very much right now.

Today my dad brought home some promotional material for Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland extravaganza, and it was... extravagent.

To start with it was an enormous book, embossed and beribboned and fabulous, the first chapter of which detailed the history of the Alice in Wonderland story. The rest was a carefully hollowed-out compartment that held a second, smaller, but no less decorated book.

Inside that were pages and pages of fold-out artwork, a belend of screenshots from the film and gorgeous watercolour concept piece. And another carefully hollowed-out compartment holding the third book.

This third volume contains character art, photos and profiles, and of course another damned tiny book, blue and grey and spartan compared to the ornate decorations of the others. At least, it looks like a book, but it is instead a case. A case for a large, heavy metal key. It has "Alice's key" engraved on it.

Unscrew the key? It's a USB full of high-res film clips and trailers and bonus material.

Holy fuck.

Broke up with my boyfriend today. My call, and... well, to resort to cliche, it was for the best.

Still kinda sucks though.

A lot.

EDIT: I have found binging on episodes of Classic!Who to be an effective distraction technique. My experimentation's show that Tom Baker is a bit too bouncy, but Davison's wistful stare is just right. Dammit, Five, why are you so abusable?

No time to gush properly, and I'd probably just end up re-quoting the entire thing, but: I loved it, everyone I convinced to go with me loved it, Jamie was described by one of them as a "scottish violence fairy in a sea of arseholes", and the most beautiful precision strike use of Malcolm's favourite word (you know what I'm talking about, you c-star-star-t's) got a round of applause from the entire audience.

True fact: coming from Chris Addison, "you're a woman, I'm... not a woman..." would probably work on me.

True fact 2: at least three of us sniffled at Malcolm's face after Linton abuses him in the meditation room.

True fact 3: I have to go now, but... DIFFICULT DIFFICULT LEMON DIFFICULT

I'M BACK! HELLO! Oh, I have missed you all more than is probably healthy. I absolutely hate being out of the loop, seriously. Knowing you were all having fun without me. (For those who don't know why I'm ranting, a fabulous New years party resulted in a less than fabulous demise of my laptop, and long story short this is the first time I've been able to get on lj since.)

So, fill me in! What have I missed? I need to binge! I need to fangirl outrageously! I need squee and ridiculous sexual innuendo! BRING IT.


I now forsake this post to instead turn my attention to my bloated inbox, but coming soon: my Big Day Out post of absolute unadulterated joy. MATTHEW BELLAMY. HE PLAYED A RIFF WITH HIS TONGUE. HIS GODDAMN TONGUE.
girlanachronism: an animated list of reason why I no longer have an appropriate icon (Default)

Um. You may have noticed I have been missing for a while. (Or not, more likely, but I love to frolic in delusion) Basically, it's because I had a great New Year Party.

So great, in fact, that I didn't notice till two days later someone had put a foot through my laptop.

So now I'm on the family computer, which has this nazi-like filtering system which bans lj altogether. As if I were using it to read copious amounts of extremely well-written porn. Or something. *shifty eyes* I'm going to get a new laptop soon, but until then I cannot really get at lj.

Special message for [ profile] kitsunesan  and [ profile] aeon_entwined: the fics I owe you both are written, and yearning to be posted! As soon as I can they'll be up.

Ok, gotta run now, out of time at the internet cafe :P see ya!

I really, really love The Thick of It

Really love it.

I just watched the first two seasons and...


(My brother told me to lay off it just before Christmas guests came, because apparently I swear 150% more in the hour following any exposure to that show)

Is there fic for this, somewhere? I mean, there has to be. Seriously. Not least because Malcolm is a crazy electric storm of sexual tension, but because Olly is such an adorable little bastard ("Shagging your way to the top?" "I'm not Scottish, I've got to get there somehow.") and the pinning against walls I mean come on

... and even better, the movie is coming soon and has Tom Hollander in it. I adore Tom Hollander.

Merry Christmas to everyone!

Have a lovely day, eat way too much, and spread the love.

As a totally lame effort on my part, I offer as pressies for anyone who wants it, an IOU Ficlet Of Your Prompting Type Choice, which I promise to write and give to you before New Year. Comment if you want one, or if you don't, and for no reason at all here's Brandon Flowers with Santa:

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 finally got around to watching the pilot for White Collar, and I remembered how someone on my flist said it was great and fun and sexy and just screaming OT3, among other things.

They were so right.

I mean, it's terribly silly but it's fast and kinda funny and I really like it. I'll probably get really boring about this real fast, so I'll just say this: Matthew Bomer's eyes. Oh dear god, his wide beseeching mischievous cocky vulnerable beautiful damn eyes. And the way they change from when Peter is saying "I'm putting you back in prison" to when Peter's half-smiling and telling him to stop dancing in the office.

Also I got a snow cookie thingy. I don't know what that is but THANK YOU :D (you know who you are)

Sorry for flist spammage, but I'm going away for a week (beach house + friends + island = win) and so... yeah, if I don't reply, that's why.

See you all again on the 29th

I am dying. Possibly dead. I'll get back to you on that one. On the other hand, I'm also wearing very little. Lucky you, eh?

Seriously, it's 43 degrees here. (110 Farenheit, for you strange people who measure temperature in your strange units)
