(I've tried patience)

WooHoo! More music!

In amongst the other things I wanted to say the other day was this :

Another song I'd be hopelessly grateful to receive is the extraordinary "Flawless" by The Ones (nice, modest name there, guys). I've seen the video five times now, and every time it leaves me sitting staring at the screen going "What was that??" Essentially it's an 80s-based disco-type song, and the video is almost a half-and-half split between the 80s and the 90s, but half the clothes are really 70s. It's WEIRD! And COOL! And sure, the song is rubbish, but *good* rubbish. (Um.) And....and I love it. And the band members are a cool black dude, a cool dude from somewhere else, and...what looks to be an Italian guy in partial drag.
Tee hee.

In the words of Oberon : Music, ho! Music, such as charmeth sheep!

  • Current Music
    'Slave 4 U', Britney, 'Flawless', and 'Chop Suey' by SOAD.

Oh, and three things else :

1) I'd forgotten how much I love Japan. Miaow, miaow miaow miaow.

2) If you're bisexual....who can I slash you with??? ~ggls helplessly~

3) And another addition to Em's RWO (so far including such diverse gems as "applied", "sweet" and "mouth" used as a verb) - a really weird one this time, for which Diana Williams is entirely responsible. It hit me in Latin this morning when we were studying a sentence and the Latin word nam came up and I went "oh". So thanks, Diana, for making the nickname of one of the most brutal wars in history into an Em turn-on. ~shakes head~ *Why*???


  • Current Music
    Seems to have settled into 'Chop Suey', System Of A Down.

(I've tried patience)


I wish people would stop singing Staind. Even if it does have a current other favourite quote of mine :

"It's been a while since I could say that I wasn't addicted...
And it's been a while since I could say I loved myself as well as....."

I love that. But I *wish* people would stop singing the song.

  • Current Music
    One line - not the above - from That Song. Sigh.
