End of the quotes [16 Aug 2006|11:24pm]

I am typing up all the rest of these quotes now so I can just put this journal away.

Is anybody else trying out the new LJ layout? I think it's good. Sleek and classy.Collapse )

taking a hint from Rx [10 Aug 2006|10:07am]

here's some music videos on YouTube.

Travis - Re-Offender
I posted the song a while back and said the music video was really good, so here it is. I have enormous love for the last image.

Cowboy Mouth - Disconnected (live)
Yummmm. Live version on Craig whoever show - how many times can you say you've seen the lead singer play the drums?

VAST - Pretty when you cry
A bit disturbing, sort of. Warning for one incidence of swearing.

Takkyu Ishino ft. Tabito Nanao - Last Scene
Omfg, older men homoeroticism. This video is funkycrazy.

I'm sorry, I tried to just do music videos, but... here are some commercials...

Dunkin Donuts Smoothie

Sprint Nextel
I ASPIRE to be those men.

Sprint Crime Deterrent
I think Sprint makes some of the bext commericals.

sadly now I must off to work go. perhaps an attic i shall seek....

Support Ms. Chambers! [26 Jul 2006|09:51pm]

She's involved in a play called "When An Inspector Calls" at the CCBC in Essex. It officially opens Saturday, and tickets are either 12 or 15 dollars. BUT tomorrow night is the final dress rehearsal and it's a FREE SHOW. Which is cool, because it's free.

So, if anyone else is going to go to the show tomorrow - starting at 8pm - (or even over the weekend), please to be telling me, because then I'll snivel and ask politely to hitch a ride; I can pay you gas and hindrance money after Friday (pay day!)

Yeah, you all rock. Ciao. Chao (i think that's how the spanish spell it).

music from agent-spoonman [18 Jul 2006|10:42pm]

as in, i meant to post it in litkids, but forgot. so here's the music alone (all movie ranting tucked away in my personal lj), and sorry for any repeat views.

Iannis Xenakis - Concert Ph II
This is kind of a creepy song - I found the CD while browsing the library; something about sonology and "new electric music," which I assume is making music with machines or something (is too lazy to wiki it). But it's worth a listen. It's intriguing.

Better than Ezra - Misunderstood
BTE=love. I love everything about them (they're having a golf open to support New Orleans) and this song, like so many others, has a great sense of character.

Covenant - Greater than the Sun
One of those drolling, monotone-dark-techno things. I kinda like it, but I've also had the song for less than three hours.

The Who - Behind Blue Eyes
OH get this - the who and the red hot chili peppers and maybe others are coming to BALTIMORE, performing at Pimlico. SOOO excited. I hope tickets (which go on sale July 22) are reasonably priced. As for this song, I really, really like the line about the coat. It makes me happy inside.

INTERLUDE. i just wiki-ed Sonology:
Sonology is the study of sound. There are many approaches, but generally it can be divided into the artistic and the scientific approaches. It is related to fields such as acoustics, electronic music, electronics, informatics, composition and psychology.

Splashdown - Waterbead
have i posted this before? i have no idea. I continue to intensely enjoy this group, and this is one of their slower songs. Beware, for it gets stuck in heads quite easily.

Gorillaz - Latin Simone (Que Pasa Contigo)
Good beats. Also in Spanish. HERMANO! (yeah but not really)

Overseer - Meteorology
Hmm. This song's just cool.

annnnndddd i think i'm done. you can tell from the degradation of song comments. enjoy.

a request (xposted to ag_spoo) [10 Jul 2006|07:36pm]

Okay, so a month or so ago, I was listening to the radio in the car, and it was some classic rock song (Pink Floyd's "comfortably Numb"), and I remembered a poem I read forever ago. BUT I have no idea who did it or what it's called or anything. It was nighttime, so the connection between the song and the poem was weird, but the line "hello, is there anybody in there/etc" sparked the memory.

(vaguely) the poem is about a door, and on one side is a man, and damn this is hard to describe. Something about a voice coming from the other side of the door, and shadows, but the voice isn't a real voice, and the man leaves after knocking and receiving no reply. And the voice comes after the man has left....???

Yeah, searching for it has started to drive me crazy. Anything come to mind?

I just got back from Tennessee, where, against all odds, I picked up two Thursday Next novels for ten bucks. Very cool.

In other news, I dug out my fiction journal from two years ago. Quotes will follow.

Let's start the party with a scene about math.Collapse )

"What pretending causes" [18 Jun 2006|09:52pm]

This was me trying to work on my independent project. In the beginning I actually tried. 'Isn't even what I ended up turning in anyway.

the first image was inspired by the second floor hallway of Enoch Pratt.

oh boy a post.......! [15 Jun 2006|08:29pm]

Would anyone be interested in a Mailing-List type thing? We could call it Dr Worm or something else incredibly inside joke. I don't know. It's been years since I've messed around with the Yahoo Groups but they aren't hard to figure out. Thoughts? Pennies?!

and dude now I have just one more place to post music *dork*

Flogging Molly - What's Left of the Flag
someone somewhere on the internet once likened this song to Night Watch and now that's one thing i always think about when listening to it - it does fit to a certain regard

Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble - Distant Green Valley
hurrah for the instrumental pretties

Lemon Jelly - Space Walk
i recently bought the LJ dvd and it made me HAPPY; i also like how this song picks up

Flying - Last Trick
i have no information about this band at all, but this has gotta be one of my favorite songs of all time. in addition it's quiet so turn up your speakers.

loving times for all~~

First big Fiction assignment, for which just about nobody is prepared. Critique would be nice. The big question is: given that it's almost entirely in dialog, does that carry the story well enough? Can you guys tell what's going on? (Oh, and, is it good in general, of course.)

The as-yet untitled story . . .Collapse )

Triolet [01 Oct 2004|01:25pm]

Rewrote my ode to the sofa, and thought that it would be enjoyed here. yay for the lit couches (aka my sanity)


I crush the fabric flowers with my weight,
and wish I could more often rest like this;
the sofa takes me from my life so full of haste.
When I crush the fabric flowers with my weight
I can’t believe that such a thing exists as hate.
I want to sleep forever in its soft caress,
crushing the fabric flowers with my weight.
The world should more often rest like this.

haah crits welcome

haiku for the lone insomniac [20 Jul 2004|11:37am]

also for Rax, who is a lone insomniac, but who is also somthing much much more

i first appeared to you
hollow, but look closer into my eyes
and you will see yourself drooling

we used to write one word
notes on crumplead reciets
adressed to ourselves

there was a shreak
of madness in your hair
and so you cut it off

the world stopped
when your hand moved through my journal
it was like falling through water

the universe crumpled
at your feet, a flower grew
and you held it

ive never seen you blink.
every raindrop that ever fell
you wanted to catch

i used to think my skin was made
of glass, and my eyes of clay
if only i knew but yesterday

when our hands turned
into stone, our eyes
saw the world with knives

there were fields
of flowers that we ran through
and now theyre made of glass

i saw a red river once
and so drank from it every month
but i could still not seel your pain

the swords we made
were plastic
but we bled for them

i once thought
you were made of stained glass
and then you shattered in front of me
and then i smiled with wet cheeks

the strom shook the house
into a dark void
so we lit candles and sang dial tones

you should really color the walls
with the pens up your sleeve
or hidden behind your eyes

a wave broke the silence on the beach;
people were broken by tradition
and you laughed

haiku! dum de dum [15 Jul 2004|07:43am]

[ mood | cold ]

thought you might be in the mood for some

haiku for the renewal

our eyes were like glass
a smooth gray shell
that we used for strength

i knew you were made
whole by a vine; i breathed life
for every second you gave me strength

the glass was angelic in mold
and was made perfect
by a beautiful shatter of wings

the beast let out his roar
in winter; when silence brought death
across a frozen lake

the change was innocuous
at first glance
a tear dried

the sound of sex
of water and wind was vibrant
like the motion of waking eyes

a single feather made ripples
on a shipwrecked ocean one day
after they wished back the dead

the wolf remained silent
that cold night
when the moon was full

a candle burned
it's wick to black smoke
and used the sheet of night for fuel

on a stormy night
she climbed a hill and was struck
by her own hand

Random remark [03 Jul 2004|04:47am]

Oh, by the way:

I got a B in Journalism fourth quarter.

That's the one grade that I was just about as worried over as Allison with her math grade. I mean, there weren't that many assignments, and I turned one in the day after it was due ("Well, honey, you know I can't give you credit for this. It was due yesterday") and one several weeks late (that one didn't even get commented on). I have no idea what the grade breakdown was, but apparently I scraped through.

Which means I can breathe easily again ^_^

Oh, and - according to this article I'm reading in Scientific American, some guy actually proved the Poincaré conjecture. Isn't that cool?

(Don't know what the Poincaré conjecture is? Well, don't feel bad. Before I read the article, I didn't either ^.~)
