(I've tried patience)

Yes, it's morning, isn't it? Ow.

Woke at half three, which will teach me to go to bed early. I blame the sheer weirdness of watching Shooting Stars last night, which since the arrival of Will Self is oddly like spending half an hour living in devalmont's brain.

Later, I will ask you to think about music a bit, but not in a serious way. At the moment I can barely manage it myself. ~s~

Yay, I see asrana tonight! And intend to spend the day trying to make the house presentable. Oh, and probably sleeping quite a bit this afternoon. ~pulls duvet over head~

Lost In Music

So, yes, music. I've been thinking recently about the Songs That Time Forgot - those songs that were, or seemed to be, huge when they were released, but that have now completely vanished - not good or bad enough to make a VH-1 countdown, not right to be used on TV adverts, not one-hit wonders or novelty songs, they appear to have just sunk without trace.

Do you know what I mean? I want to know which songs you think of as being like this. I realise they're not the easiest things to think of, being the Songs That Time Forgot and all that - but I'm curious. The one that reminded me that I wanted to ask this was 'Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out' by Freak Power, incidentally.

Christmas roundup, it being December 1st and that.

1) Presents, the giving of. I am buying presents for my family, and I'm not entirely sure I'll be able to get any for anyone else, though I *want* to, of course. I want to lots, but it may end up being a case of sporadic presents throughout next year stretching out until they cease to be late Christmas presents and become Unbirthday ones instead. But I know some of you would prefer it that way. ~smile~
I am however capable of making an unlimited supply of compilation tapes. (No, I really mean that.) If that's something you think you'd like, feel free to nudge me about it. ~s~

2) Presents, the receiving of. I feel deeply weird about the thought of people who aren't my family giving me Christmas presents. But weird can be good sometimes. ~grin~ This being the case I have acquired the rather lovely Wishlist meme from the rather lovely libellum (and others), in case anyone does happen to be strange but wonderful enough to want to give me anything.

Collapse )

Edit : Oh, yes, and. I do not cope well with anonymous gifts. I mean, obviously anyone giving me things is wonderful, but I would much much much rather know who things were from! (Thank you purplerabbits for reminding me.)

3) asrana has reminded me that I've still never made a contact details post, so, one to follow shortly, backdated so as not to clutter your Friends Page but in my memories under 'contact details'.
