psalm_onethirtyone: (Cascade Pond)

got to start watching the Illbleed Let's Play; finally got my paycheque; am not working until Wednesday; had ice cream and black raspberries; got my toenails painted rainbow by a lady at church; had a nap to-day; had a bicycle ride to-day; am planning to make cupcakes to-morrow with the fresh cherries we didn't can; got to ride in Maria's Miata; have the cutest fishies in the world; DON'T WORK UNTIL WEDNESDAY; found out strawberries can prevent/cure cancer; got a Tom Waits album from Maria's boyfriend; will sleep in to-morrow.

And it wasn't a million degrees outside, either.

Mmm, summer.

I just traded copies of my Heather Dale CDs for a copy of her Road to Santiago, but when I got it it was in .wma format. As a result, I've just finished uploading it and converting it to .mp3. Then I thought, as long as it's uploaded online and in a format generally everyone can download/play, does anyone else want a link to the CD while it's still up?

On a completely different note, Soup in a Bowl fundraiser to-day at school! Tres excited, I'm going with my friend Krieger and a bunch of people I know will be there too. To-day has really been characterised by getting nothing done--I had a sleepover at [ profile] the_chloroplast's last night because it was her birthday; slept until noon; fought a kajillion prospectives for breakfast; and then worked at Earth and Folk Fest until three. Now I've just been organising my stuff to do schoolwork, but without the part where I've actually done any schoolwork yet.

But I am nicely organised now.

--paper for Conflict
--paper for Sociology
--second draft of story for Fiction Writing
--read four chapters and journal about them for Conflict
--read two chapters and study for exam for Sex
--read one chapter for Sociology

...Watch me go and watch a film instead of doing any of it, too.

Oh, kittens. I swear I am going to respond to the comments left on my two previous posts, I am just terribly distractable and tired right now. So have a collection of diverting things that I have made from the internets:

1. A meme.

Pick one of my current rp characters and I will:

(a) Three facts about them from my personal fanon.
(b) A reason they're amazing.
(c) Five things that I'd like to see happen to them.
(d) Three people that I might ship that character with and why.

I'll probably do old characters, too, if you ask; I am pliable that way.

2. A tumblr.

Fuck Yeah, Benedict Cumberbatch. Oooh yeah.

3. A game.

I had sex with Oprah.

4. Photography.

Hummingbirds, it turns out, are as derpy as the rest of us.

5. A Polyvore.

This always makes me happy.

6. A fanfiction.

Raj/Howard, Big Bang Theory. Yesssss.

7. A request.

I'm almost done with a Holmes/Watson Sherlock fanfic, would anyone mind beta-reading it for me?
psalm_onethirtyone: (Baby Got a Sweet Ride)
GO WATCH THIS. It is Deep Space 9, Alexander Siddig-as-Bashir, "I Wish I Were James Bond" songvid. GO WATCH IT WHY ARE YOU STILL READING MY POAST.
psalm_onethirtyone: (OTP ZOMGWTFBBQ)
Give two characters from any of my fandoms and I will tell you-- no matter how ridiculous the pairing-- the following about their first child (if they are canonically a couple with children, I will make up an uncanon child.)
A. Name
B. Zodiac Sign and/or Hogwarts House
C. Circumstances of Conception
D. PB/Appearance
E. Three Random Facts

RPs count as fandoms. >_> I am having a bad day and don't want to deal with homework, what.

Also, upload me your favourite song of the moment, then post this on your journal so I can do the same.
psalm_onethirtyone: (Lock the Doors and Call me Yours)
Hey, [ profile] lillieoz--I have a friend who is trying to get Les Miz in as many different languages as possible. Can I ask what you have?

(Same goes for RENT, apparently.)
psalm_onethirtyone: (Red-Letter Day of Wishing)
There are so many exciting things to say here--last night we went to see Old Crow Medicine Show perform in Jim Thorpe, and all six of them signed the hoodie I bought, and Ketch kissed Maria, and they played Take 'Em Away and I Hear Them All and Tell it to Me, and Maria and I both danced ourselves to exhaustion on the beer-slicked dance floor--we went clothes shopping too and I found some actual nice jeans which I have never been able to do, and the most adorable white dress with purple flowers around the hem that makes me look like a '50s housewife from a magazine ad spot--and I caught the orange kitten who lives in the barn and named him Hawkeye and he is a dollface but very scared still--and OLD CROW MEDICINE SHOW YOU GUYS--and I have to make two cakes by to-night for the yard sale to-morrow and it's going to kill me--

but I think the most important thing I wanted to say is that I signed into my e-mail just now and [ profile] mhari is the most wonderful friend anybody could have, and I am so lucky. I don't know how I turned out so lucky.
psalm_onethirtyone: (OTP ZOMGWTFBBQ)
Okay, so I realise this is one of the most terrible things I've ever asked, but does anyone have any Lady Gaga they could share with me? Specifically Bad Romance, Paparazzi, and Telephone, but others would be appreciated too.
psalm_onethirtyone: (Dye My Eyes and Call Me Pretty)
Here are some great links that I found to-day, and by "found" I mean "picked up off Go Fug Yourself". But hey. They're pretty rad.

A to Z, which is hilarious. It's drawings from A to Z of random nerdy stuff. Many Star Trek and Marvel references. Yessss.

Heartwarming father-daughter times! [ profile] coffeeandpoly is very fond of this one. This is your Faith in Humanity link.

Worst 13 songs recorded by professional athletes. This delights me. A great, great deal.

Finally, here is something that happened to me to-day. I bought some stuff that I didn't have money for, so Matt paid for it with his credit card. Then when I renewed my med scrip I withdrew money and paid him back; about fifteen dollars. Then we went to the choir concert, and they asked for donations, but I had no money again. Obviously.

And then this conversation took place:

Matt: Does anyone have three dollars I can borrow?
Everyone: Nope.
Me: No, but--Matt, why don't you have any money? I gave you money!
Matt: Oh, well, I donated it.
Me: ...
Me: *gets up, goes over to him, and kisses him*
Everyone: ...
Matt: ...
Phil: Did you--did you just get kissed by a lesbian?
Me: He deserved it!
Phil: Oh, my God.
psalm_onethirtyone: (Slightly Confuzzled - Holly Brook)
Emergency! Emergency! I need an .mp3 of Frank Sinatra singing "I Get a Kick Out of You" by 6:00 to-morrow! Does anyone know where I can obtain this thing? I have no money for iTunes atm, so that's out.

psalm_onethirtyone: (Hear that Meta?)
I cut myself like a million places to-night when I was shaving, because I am amazing and brilliant and handy with a razor.

Anyway, I am feeling a lot better than earlier this week, I think in part because I have realised that I don't actually have to hang out with people that I like, and also that Jake makes everybody feel both squicked and ragey, a revelation that makes me feel a lot less like an irrational bitch. Mind, I did stay in bed until supper because I was having horrible dreams and couldn't get rested no matter how long I slept, but I've still managed to get almost all my homework done AND won the contest on Neopets.

And I e-mailed Valentine's love to my parents and sister, and asked Steph if she wanted to meet for baking! to-morrow after lunch, which would be awesome. And if I could draw, believe me, Medieval Medicine would so be a comic strip.

Also, it's hard to have a bad day when you're listening to The Killers.
psalm_onethirtyone: (Body Dysmorphia is a Cliche)
Okay. Here are some links you need to see.

This one, because it makes me furious--that is, not the post, but the article it's talking about: the author of the post is right on.

This one, because it is brilliant, and this woman should be supported and rallied around and I love her.

And this one because we need something light after all that, and this is hilarious.
psalm_onethirtyone: (And Didn't it Shine?)
So this meme is that you get a letter, and then you post seven songs beginning with that letter. I, unfortunately, have no sense of proportion, and also had more than seven songs that I wanted to post, so. I doubled it. I feel that these are all fairly iconic songs to me--songs I really remember.

My letter was M.

Mr. Jones, Counting Crows. Normally I find Counting Crows a little whiny and undistinguished, but I love this song. It reminds me of a Picasso painting, and not just because of the reference.

Maybelline, Chuck Berry. This is the most awesome song ever. Ever.

Mack the Knife, Bobby Darin. The CD this song comes from is one of the first my father ever bought me, and I always remembered this song. I've heard the real version, too, but something about Bobby Darin's whooping and the creepy texture of the song against his manic rendering makes it really, really distinctive to me. And kind of scares me, too.

Martha, Tom Waits. I love Tom Waits' weird gravelly voice, and I think this is one of the saddest and most beautiful songs I have in my collection. Also it always makes me think of [ profile] softerthansound.

Major Tom, Shiny Toy Guns. This song is the sequel (threequel?) to David Bowie's Space Oddity and Ashes to Ashes, and I mostly just completely love it. Also it's creepy too.

Mr Levon, Shawn Colvin. I think this song is about the personification of regret. It's also creepy. I like creepy, atmospheric songs. >_>

Modern Don Juan, Buddy Holly. Buddy Holly was one of the first musicians I listened to on a regular basis, and this song cracks me up. It's so silly and fun. And silly.

Me and the Major, Belle and Sebastian. I find this very powerful.

Mira, Carnival. And this song is just--sweet and sad and inexpressibly awesome. Also, her voice is totally weird, but I like it anyway.

Manic Monday, the Bangles. This was MY SONG while I was working this summer. It so truly described the way I felt. And my intense hatred of being a functional, professional human being when I wanted to die.

Misery Loves Company, Emilie Autumn. Emilie Autumn is so gloriously over the top and so self-aware of it. And this song is a perfect example of that.

Me and Bobby McGee, the Grateful Dead. This is Bob Weir's version of the song, which is not Janis Joplin's, which is the best. On the other hand, Bob Weir has a great voice, and I love the Grateful Dead's music. And Rockin' the Rhine was a fantastic tour, UNLIKE SOME.

My Way Out, David Usher. I feel like David Usher's songs, at least the ones I have, really speak to the working class and a desire for something bigger and more and wanting to break away but being kept still by your relationships and responsibilities. This song and Fast Car are two of my very favourites of his.

Mr. Brightside, the Killers. One of the first real rock songs I ever listened to. This is a good song to belt along to in the car. >_>

Tag if you want a letter of your own!

POST SCRIPT to the person who bought me paid time, why are you people always anonymous so I can't say thank you? THANK YOU ANYWAY. ♥ ♥ ♥
psalm_onethirtyone: (Lock the Doors and Call me Yours)
And, on a less emo-tastic note, does anybody have:

Carry On My Wayward Son (Kansas)
Eye of the Tiger (Survivor)
any Bob Dylan covers by people who aren't Bob Dylan
any Grateful Dead covers by people who aren't the Grateful Dead
any Cyndi Lauper
any Alanis Morissette?

Because I am not ashamed of being a whore.
psalm_onethirtyone: (Dye My Eyes and Call Me Pretty)
Does anyone have a copy of Bob Dylan singing Desolation Row? I have the Grateful Dead and Ratdog, but they're both live and I'd kind of like a studio version. I know somebody gave it to me a long time ago, but if I still have it it's on the computer at home and I can't get to it. I'd really appreciate it!

I like my new therapist a lot. ♥

Feeling pretty good overall to-day; recovering nicely from bicycle accident. I think this will be a good week if I can make sure I stay on top of things, which so far I am doing.

All will be well, and all manner of thing shall be well.
psalm_onethirtyone: (Open the Legend)
ARGH why am I so depressed? I was fine Tuesday and Wednesday, and now I am back in the pits of despair. Argh argh argh.

Important Fact: It is [ profile] eegatland's birthday! She is the epitome of awesome, and should request fic(let).

I don't think there is enough Billy Joel in my life.

psalm_onethirtyone: (And She'll Go Mad)
So, I'm half-way done with my Sinners and Saints Heroes essay, and I was wondering whether anybody on my flist would be willing to edit it for me. Preferably this would be someone who is familiar with first season Heroes canon, since the essay relies heavily upon it. I will be happy to write fic for anyone who volunteers!

Actual conversation of the day:

Soujin: Sigh. Crystal is so mean, laughing at me because my CWS teacher will eviscerate me.
Kirk: What does eviscerate mean?
Soujin: It means that she is going to cut open my abdomen and laugh while my intestines spill all over the floor.
Soujin: ...Metaphorically.
Kirk: Oh, well, that's all right.
Soujin: NO IT'S NOT. Metaphorically means I won't actually get to die at the end!
Kirk: *laughs at me*

Also, here is a request because I am feeling blah and think this would cheer me up: if anybody has a song they want to share, please upload it to the comments on this entry. :D I would love that.

Also! I was wrong. Having Alice in my group IS > horrible boy.
psalm_onethirtyone: (HEE!)
*points at icon* I feel like this right now. Mostly.

So, um. I got to drive The Car again to-day for the first time in for-ever. I have missed it so much. It is my sweet baby car and I love it. <3333 Maria is at the library here with me as well, due to the fact that we are trying to sit around in the air conditioning for a while in self-defence. I always forget how hot Pennsylvania countryside gets in the summer. I guess it can't be worse than being in a big city like Harrisburg, though.

And then we are going to do a little bit of shopping, and I am going to have to get some money out to pay back the NFS. This is the woe in my day--I forgot to transfer the money Mama gave me to cover my checks there out of my savings into my checking, so I overdrew. And I got everything fixed up with the bank, but I figure the NFS also is going to charge me for giving them a bad check, so I need to go over there and see about settling things up. I feel really bad about it, because it's definitely my fault. I just wasn't paying attention at all. So there's that to do.

I tried to get my prescription refilled in ten mg tablets instead of twenty mg capsules, but the lady at the pharmacy made O_O faces at me and said it wasn't okay to do that without the doctor's permission. SO I guess I need to call Dr. Cornelius and ask her if she can write me a new prescription. I am trying to cut down on my meds a little.

But I'm mostly caught up on most of what I have to do, and that's a real good feeling.

p.s. I am only a teeny bit ashamed to admit that I have just discovered Rod Stewart, and I really like him.
psalm_onethirtyone: (Annie with Red Hair)
So I am in the process of uploading all the music from my innumerable mix CDs to Galahad, and have discovered that I have in many cases forgotten the artists. Scouring the archives of the main computer have revealed some of them, but there are still a lot I can't find/didn't download with full information. So! I am begging for assistance. Plz help. <3!

Songs I Need Titles For:

The three Regina Spektor songs [ profile] periculous sent me--the one is about listening to a song on the radio, the one goes 'come, come come, to me' a lot, and the third one is something like 'I've gone away don't call don't write'.

Somgs I Need Artists For:

Harebrained Scheme (got it from [ profile] erinpuff originally.)
Existentialism on Prom Night
Picture This
While the Trees Sleep ([ profile] mhari)
Four Leaf Clover ([ profile] erinpuff)
Losing My Religion
Sunday Morning ([ profile] erinpuff)
Ordinary ([ profile] peridium)
Even Angels Fall
For Whose Sake
Galaxies ([ profile] erinpuff)
Captain Nemo ([ profile] julietveiled)
Ra is a Busy God ([ profile] erinpuff?)
Seule ([ profile] erinpuff)
Mad World (the slow version, not the Tears For Fears version)

Guernica? --I know this song had Guernica somewhere, either in the title or for the artist. I think I got it from [ profile] peridium or [ profile] blind_madness; as is also the case with the one that's low and throaty and the words 'desperaaaaate ohwohwoh' keeps showing up. Also in this set is the one that goes 'if I could only shrink myself sink through your skin to your bloodcells remove whatever makes you hurt'.

There's one where the refrain is about 'but all I wanted was somebody who'd care'--I don't know the title to that one. I always get it mixed up with Everywhere, which is the one that goes 'and when I look you're never there, and when I sleep you're everywhere', or something like that.

Also the set of Hannukkah songs [ profile] lillieoz gave me--don't know the singer's name.

A song where either the title or the artist is Vector, and it's about five minutes twenty seconds long and repeats the words 'I gotta know' over and over a lot.

A song that goes 'left the room but not the race' and 'you better hit the ground and run'. Four minutes forty-five seconds.

If [ profile] eremon_lass sees this, I need the entire playlist for Pilgrimage of the Lost Children. >_> And I think I'm done being demanding now.
