hey! guess what was on the Goldfrapp album I got the other day?

"Lovely 2 C U", a.k.a. the song that plays in Numb3rs episode 3x07 (Blackout) while Don and Liz are getting it on! coincidentally also while Don is half-naked!

so THAT was a nice surprise! :-D



now back to reading Girl Genius and enjoying my shiny new sound-cancelling headphones. yay!

ETA: new link! works now! :-D

yo ho!

.zip, .mp3, 47 MB @ SendSpace

TRACK LIST:
1. He's a Pirate (Radio Edit Remix)
2. He's a Pirate (Tribal Treasure Remix)

Wikipedia entry, in case you're interested in that sort of thing

**the Palo Verde remix is probably my favorite, but they're all TOTALLY AWESOME! and there are other remixes actually officially produced and in existence, too, but Disney's being a sneaky evil mastermind about where, when, and how they release them. of course.**

going to the midnight showing of Dead Man's Chest was definitely one of the better decisions I've made in my lifetime. as threatened, I attended in full costume, from my very Sparrowish brown tricorne down to the tip-toes of my fabulous pirate boots. accompanying me were Pidge and [livejournal.com profile] i_puddleglum, the latter in a lovely lavender top with matching Piratey Bandana and wielding an 100% authentic plastic toy cutlass. I should have taken pictures, but we haven't a clue where the camera is.

AVAST YE! there be spoilers lurking beneath this here LJ cut. )


so, um... is it next July yet?
no, wait. I want to play with this one :D *looking forward to the year ahead*



[ETA: ok looking at my mood icon just made me *whimper*. OH, JAMIE! ;A; ]

"Hey Mel? Is it soda first, or icecream?"
-Vivs, on the topic of root beer floats

the girl is adorable, but sometimes I have to wonder how she'll ever survive.

she discovered 94.1 Madison WJJO while waiting in the van for me to return from nosing around BA, though (I wanted to give the librarian flowers, as she's retiring and I love her), so that was fun. even if she did ditch my Gershwin CD for it :[ (p.s. "Lullaby for Strings" is love)

speaking of CDs, [livejournal.com profile] the_automatik, I got your MP3 mix in the mail today! haven't cracked into it just yet, but I shall very soon.



...whoah. the dog just materialized from amidst the to-be-folded laundry on my bed. wtf? I didn't even know he was in here.

OH MY WORD!

my dears, it is most absolutely a day for St. Kitten. I finished my Yeats-and-BoP essay, gave it to my professor, who proceeded to tell me how much he LOVED Breakfast on Pluto when he saw it in theaters (I had no idea! I'd been planning to lend him my DVD otherwise), and I convinced him he simply HAD to read the book over the summer. he also asked me if I was taking the Irish Story course next semester and I said yes, of course!

then I came back to my dorm, did some fiddling around, and picked up this album (Classified), by Bond, and guess what's nestled in the tracks? a version of "Fly Robin Fly"! as if Bond wasn't already way awesome enough!

truly, I love this moment. :) .:: savours ::.



and now I'm off to dinner, reading Throne of Jade. happy!

nectarine-flavoured Snapple white tea

OK Go doing their ridiculously awesome thing

the guts to chat with Damian and Dan and get their namey-scribbles on Leonardo (the Il Cenacolo tote bag), even if by the end of it I was shaking too badly (I AM A WEENIE, SEE) to go get the other two scribbles to make a full set

OMG AWESOME


I also love love LOVE how our schoolwide coping mechanism for the busiest, harshest weekend in the term is to GO OUT ON THE QUAD AND GET TOTALLY WASTED. no seriously. ♥

...I just have so much love for everybody right now, actually. and a not-cherry-tree flower floating in a shallow bowl :)


(p.s. [livejournal.com profile] smileysweetie, I actually see very little Cillian in Damian, but some, a little bit, and he's a total cutie completely aside from that, so yeah)

hay guys--

I've just been co-mod-ified at [livejournal.com profile] audiochallenge, a mixlist-challenge type music comm, and am here to plug it -- in part because if I have to approve that high a concentration of emo/indie/punkster mixlists with nothing cool in between I will ESPLODE.

I know the love y'all have for music. it is a big love, with some awesome AWESOME musicians. so join, and read this week's challenge, and post shit! well, not shit. good shit. you know.

music is love, so music for yous: The Decemberists, Roxy Music, Lynsey De Paul, Dusty Springfield, Ziggy Stardust, The Beatles. in... not really in that order.

firstly, because I promised it: )

secondly, an assortment I believe everyone should have, especially those of you who are among the 'phantom ladies' :) )

THAT'S ALL!

enjoy the music, dearhearts! and let me know if anything goes down, or isn't working, so I can fix it! also let me know what you downloaded, how you like it... I do this for you, but I'm really quite selfish! I want to hear your comments! when I'm very happy I use a lot of exclamation points! :D

These are the instructions:
Put your iTunes/Winamp/WMP on shuffle.
Say the following questions aloud, and press play.
Use the song title as the answer to the question.
NO CHEATING unless the songs you get don't make any damned sense.


O great pool hall playlist oracle, grant me guidance... )

and who knows, I may upload these tracks later. I seem to be on a sharing music kick. whee!

ETA:
Name a fandom you know I know and I'll tell you:
1. The first character/person I first fell in love with
2. The character/person I never expected to love as much as I do now
3. The character/person everyone else loves that I don't
4. The character/person I love that everyone else hates
5. The character/person I used to love but don't any longer
6. The character/person I would shag anytime
7. The character/person I'd want to be like
8. The character/person I'd slap
9. A pairing that I love
10. A pairing that I despise

Lynsey De Paul - Greatest Hits
--I was going to scan the jacket, which is full of lovely Lynsey photos and info, but the scanner/printer is still bleh and Marie and I are both too lazy to fix it. well actually, she's too computer-unsavvy, and I hate Dell so my opinion is the machine can go fuck itself. 89 MB .zip file of 21 .mp3 files--

it, like just about everything[1], is my sister's fault. )

fucking exhausted. brain made of putty. going to bed now.

while I'm out, though, do me a favor, if you'd be so kind:
please point me in the direction of your favorite band/album at the moment -- whether it's just a name, or a website link, or miracle of miracles something fabulous like some actual music I can get a hold of. because I'm so going to need something to power me while I'm knee-deep in CSS tomorrow/this weekend/as long as it's going to take for me to get this DAMNED LAYOUT up and running.

thanks, babes.
