Project reports, presentations, and to add to that, examinations start next Tuesday. So you would think I have absolutely no time to do stupid things.

Wrong. Procrastination is my friend.

Saw this on [livejournal.com profile] misshallelujah 's journal. Couldn't resist.

DESIGN YOUR OWN INDIE ALBUM COVER

1 - Go to Wikipedia. Hit “random”
or click http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 - Go to Quotations Page and select “random quotations”
or click http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four or five words of the very last quote on the page is the title of your first album.

3 - Go to Flickr and click on “explore the last seven days”
or click http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 - Use Photoshop, Paint, or similar to put it all together.


Mine:

 
Fenolheda is a place in France, the picture, and the full quote is "There is absolutely no inevitability as long as there is a willingness to contemplate what is happening." The whole thing kinda fits very prettily together, doesn't it?


Now show me what you got!

3am. It's raining. And it's quiet and peaceful, and you can almost believe that you're completely alone. I adore nights like these. It's too pleasant a night to spend sleeping or studying, so I'll just take the time to breathe in the cold air and listen to soft and pretty music.


mixtape; breathe the rain
goldmund → in a notebook
rachael yamagata → answering the door
gregory & the hawk → grey weather
angus & julia stone → chocolate and cigarettes
sophie koh → all the night
abigail washburn → halo
maximilian hecker → this poison called love
william fitzsimmons → we feel alone
greg laswell → and then you
rosie thomas → dialogue

I really should be studying though. Anyway, while I'm at it, I've got quite a few albums uploaded, will post it later.


And hello to all the new people on my flist. I might have gone overboard with the friending, but fill this in, will ya? ♥. Also, if by any chance I didn't add you back, it's not because I'm mean, it's because I accidentally missed it. Let me know, k?

1. It begins with a list of all 26 letters of the alphabet.
2. Comment with something for me to talk about that starts with one of those letters. Make me babble about anything -- TV shows, actors, actresses, food. Be creative.
3. One topic per letter -- it's like a claims list! I will cross off letters as topics appear.
4. I will post a new post talking about all 26 topics given to me!

You are in a mall when the zombies attack. You have:
1. one weapon.
2. one song blasting on the speakers.
3. one famous person to fight alongside you.

* Weapon can be real or fictional; you may assume endless ammo if applicable. Person can be real or fictional.


1. Guns are useless against them, right? Just give me a shiny sharp machete, and I'm good to go.
2. Metallica. Anything by them will do.
3. Dean&Sam. (Shut up. They're one entity.)

Name me a character or ship or fandom (or multiples) in the comments and I'll give you a song in return. If I'm not familiar with your choice I'll either choose a song based on what I know from the flist, or hit random on my iTunes and wait for hilarity to ensue.

Nada Surf - Lucky (2008)

If you're a One Tree Hill fan, this name shouldn't be unfamiliar to you. Always Love? Remember that track? Back with their 5th album, they're better than ever. Such is the band’s melodic power the sensation is like slipping into a warm bath rather than eavesdropping by the psychiatrist’s chair.

sample track; The Film Did Not Go Round
Everyone's gotta leave their love sometime
If not now, then at the end of your life-time
You'll be waiting by my bed I know
And your last little words will be I love you so
The shutter clicked, but the film did not go 'round
I touch these strings, but cannot touch the sound.

Mood:: 'rejuvenated' rejuvenated
Music:: nada surf; see these bones

I dreamt of zombies last night. (And no, I haven't seen any zombie movies since I Am Legend, which was Christmas last year. Does Cloverfield or the trailer for Fringe count?) They wore a thin white film over their faces. The white film either came from their mouths when they changed or they grabbed it from somewhere. I can't remember. And the people around me became zombies rather randomly. It was some unknown trigger, but I don't know what, and that lack of knowledge is freaky. But it wasn't really a nightmare. Sure, it was a little scary, with the chasing and the running and the grabbing, but I wasn't really frightened out of my wits. Everything was just white. And green. There were trees and water. But not the murky humid kind. It was more of, ethereal. Yeah, zombies with white faces in a fairytale setting. Brain, what's up?

two;
1. Reply to this post and I'll assign you a letter. (I think everyone has done it by now, but if you still want a letter, go ahead.)
2. List 5 songs that start with that letter.
3. Post them to your journal with these instructions.

[profile] breathe_me27 gave me H.
The Weepies; Hideaway
The Submarines; Hope
Broken Social Scene; Hotel
Frou Frou; Hear Me Out
Sia; Healing Is Difficult

(Just let me know if you want any of the songs.)

Oh Twilight fandom. While I'm not one of the pioneer fans, I like to think of myself as one of the earlier ones, before the fandom exploded with a million pre-teens. I got it for my birthday in February last year, and I brought New Moon a week later. I love the book for the guilty pleasures it offers, the innocence it invokes, and the epic love it represents. Now, maybe it's the hype surrounding RPrattz and KStew, maybe it's the fandom itself, I find Twilight... ridiculous. I've read the first chapter of Breaking Dawn, and my first impression was that it's funny. Cheesy-lame funny, not sweet-cute funny. Maybe I've been exposed to the glittery comments on ONTD for too many times. Before this August, I definitely need to shut off from the fandom (and hatedom), curl up with a cup of iced tea, and recapture the magic of Edward Cullen.

Rachael Yamagata - Loose Ends EP (2008)

I adore this woman. A lot. I saw her in concert last year, and she was beyond amazing. She has the uncanny ability to twirl complicated emotions into her raspy voice and exquisite lyrics. I've been looking forward to her new album for ages now. This EP serves as a preview to the new album, which I expect will be a splendid sophomore offering.

And is this me posting an album with every entry? I don't know. Do you want me to? Perhaps as penance for being missing for almost 6 months? There's just a whole bunch of new releases this year that I really want to share. The Submarines, Nada Surf, The National, The Weepies, The Raveonettes, etc. 2008 is a good year for music. I don't even know what my Album of the Year will be.

When you see this on your flist, make a post and quote Supernatural in your journal.

"My name is Dean Winchester. I'm an Aquarius; I enjoy sunsets, long walks on the beach, and frisky women."

*bounces* New episode tomorrow morning!! (timezone)


Storm's coming. I can hear the thunder in the distance. I love nights like this.

Storm
Louise Rill

The whole air is conspiring
and ravening thunder rumbles
your image turns in my head
obscure as dark, rolling clouds

Lightning curls, flickers
piercing

Yes, I long for your hand on
my damp skin
a hot breath enters my window --
a gasp,
then sweet, hard raindrops
sweet, hard raindrops
to wet the needy earth

Golden Globes Aftermath:
Watch Isaiah Washington bursting out "I did not call T.R a faggot" and Katherine Heigl defending T.R Knight.

KH: "I don't think [Washington] means it the way he comes off…But, T.R. is my best friend. I will throw down for that kid. I will beat you up. I will use every ounce of energy I have to take you down if you hurt his feelings."

I LOVE this girl. Did you guys see them onstage giggling to each other? So cute.

EDIT:
T.R Knight on the Ellen DeGeneres' show

One Tree Hill is headed for a fourth season! Yes! There's some news on CW's new fall schedule here. Veronica Mars made it too, but there was news of that a long time ago. Everwood is cut though. Oh well, I haven't been watching it much too. Supernatural, Smallville, Gilmore Girls, ANTM all made it, as expected.

I'm glad OTH made it. Okay, it's a strange feeling. I know I would have been really upset if it got cancelled, but now I'm not really that esctatic. Just glad. Maybe it's because I always knew it would make the cut. =)

For now...


and 


I'm going along with [profile] dreamerdust, so I'm tagging EVERYONE!!! =)

Anyway, I'm looking for a beta for my [community profile] dmhgficexchange project. Anyone interested in taking up the challenge?
