hello! I need to tell you ALL THE THINGS

* [ profile] sinpozium was a couple of weeks ago! it was great!

* my teen wolf pimp at sinpoz went well as did my vid show - I got a compliment on how I collate a vidshow and I really felt pleased by that :)

* great to see all my have kiwis at sinpoz! I shall be returning the favour whenever [ profile] get__together happens!

* went to perth to catch up with English KT my english friend who was my bestie in Vancouver! In conclusion, we are still bros, it is awesome that she lives in the same country as me again!

* you should read this fic!: "Whatever" by skoosiepants - It is a WONDERFUL original slash highschool fic, with coming out, a bit of angst, some awesome one-liners and seriously here is a sample of it's awesomeness:

Mike likes to think he’s popular, which is a good way to dive into junior year of high school. Mike’s in a sort-of band with three other popular dudes and Jason, who is barely cool by association, but they let him hang because he’s the only one who knows how to even fucking turn on the Casio. There’s all these switches and buttons, Mike always ends up getting it stuck on Extreme Gothic Organ or something.

* went to the closing night film of sydney film festival and saw "safety not guaranteed" It was really good! funny and had surprise Kristen Bell! For those who know me and my ~feelings~ about time travel, I didn't suffer a rage blackout! it was more a film about regret and other film festival film themes but I am still super happy that I went. Also, that I ate ALL THE FOOD at wagamama's beforehand

* I now have a tumblr! I am meeliesaysno mainly I reblog awesome things? IDK, still figuring tumblr out. Here is my opinion on one thing - safari on iPad HATES gifs. It resizes them to squares that cut off the text. so I played around with some apps, there aren;t that many dedicated for the iPad! the official Tumblr app is only for iPhone. The free apps are pretty rotten, so I splurged and bought Tumblita, I am liking it! My biggest tip: turn your screen to scroll through posts rather than having to select from the dashboard index. This is the article that I looked at that was pretty helpful

* also! like, the LA Kings won the Stanley Cup since I last posted! wow, I have been super slack in posting. I have been busy? and cold! I love that the true love story of Mike and Jeff being re-united has the ultimate happy ending!!

* My new job is still great! I calculated that my pay cut which was the main thing I was worried about, is actually only about $230/month. WORTH IT. SO WORTH IT.

* board games on sat night with [ profile] eponymous, [ profile] alasen and [ profile] erilyn on sat night! Lots of fun! despite getting crazy board game eyes when I got cranky! Taboo was played - turns out I do best when all clues involve Batman, and [ profile] alasen did best when we spoke in our own code:

the answer is beer:
me: this is something I like and you hate!
alasen: fun? people? alcohol?
me: more specific!
alasen: beer?
me: yes!

we still lost, but I feel we got to our winning points via a weirder, yet more satisfactory way.
the answer is beard:
me: If i was crying, this is what my tears would be!
alasen: beardy?
me: yes!

(this one only makes sense when taking hockey playoffs into account, and also the new International Sign for beardy tears that I invented a few weeks back)

* I have been watching with [ profile] alasen and occasional [ profile] gnine the Donald Strachey films! Soooo cute! Really liking it, I think the 2nd is my favourite, but I think we have one more(the 4th?) to go before I can give you my definite decision :)

* I watched Wil Wheaton's "Table Top" episode of settlers of cataan and enjoyed! I think I will need to finally by my own copy rather than relying on friends. the game review was clear and thorough while not being boring, I am looking forward to watching the reviews of games I haven't played.

* music recs!

Divide & Kreate – Dance Dreams [Eurythmics vs. Lady Gaga] It's the first dl link. I first heard this mashup in bradcpu's awesome Tron Legacy vid and eventually found a link for the mp3

now this one is a little more unusual and I am surprised I like it - it is a US football anthem re-mix - DJ Schmolli - Super Bowl Anthem [LMFAO vs. Madonna vs. Europe vs. Queen vs. House Of Pain vs. Reel 2 Real vs. Tag Team vs. MC Hammer vs. Metallica vs. White Stripes & others] It's so catchy! And the video for it is pretty good too(as long as you ignore the football?) Relatedly, here is an article about the origins of The White Stripes "Seven Nation Army" as sports chant

there was a terrible mashup as well of the proclaimers, midnight oil and david guetta's "Titanium" that I thought I liked, but then realised I just liked the "Titanium" parts - the official video is also pretty awesome. It's like a songvid to a mutant/X-men character! Except it ends too soon :( WHAT HAPPENS NEXT TO THE YOUNG MUTANT?? Is it wrong to want fic for a music video?

the other thing is that tegan and sara have a vaguely newish song - they do the lyrics on "Bodywork" by Morgan Page, which I kinda like? It is very much not a Tegan and Sara song, but if you like the "Feel it in My Bones" remix by Tiestro you will be more likely to like "Bodywork"? I love the Feel it in my bones as it is used in my favourite(the only?) The Vampire Diaries threesome songvid by greensilver.

* I am still reading a heap of teen wolf fic, but I am saving up the season 2 eps to strong like ox through?

I am sure there are other things I could be doing with my time, but currently listening to Chameleon Circuit, which is a band who has written a whole heap of songs about Doctor Who, is feeling like a pretty good choice. I rec this to people who enjoy Harry and the Potters nerdy fanboy style songs, and like Doctor Who(of course):

Sally Sparrow I wrote you a letter to make you feel better about the fact that I'm gone.
I may be stuck in the past but my future is vast don't go looking for me girl, you've got to go on
don't think he's talking to you he's just on the tv
well look past the easter egg and see the reality
the angels are approaching and the front door is locked
so don't blink

Blink by Chameleon Circuit

seeing the decemberists last week was FRICKIN' AWESOME.

But regret! I have it! I saw them at the metro and avoided the festival of sydney shows - googling on wednesday last week I discovered that they played "The Mariners Revenge Song" at the tuesday night gig :(

playlist from metro: )

other thing I keep forgetting to tell you! How annoyed I was at the girl at sundance who worked at a coffee shop that banksy enhanced the wall of - she said something along the lines of liking it because it was of a man admiring a flower and taking a photo of it - the image is of a person so intent on getting the photo that they have ripped the flower out of the ground, essentially killing it - it was kinda obvious that it was a pap/media criticism but that might just be my art essay bias showing. You decide.

I am totally not reading my reading page on dreamwidth. If i was inclined, maybe I would set up a circle/filter/something so I could just read the peeps I know aren't crossposting everything to lj. BUT I AM LAZY!

in other news, the mp3 I stole my ringtone from is playing on my ipod dock and it is very hard to stop myself getting up and finding my phone.

in other other news: I was reading a ton of due south this past week(well, until my bookmooched romance showed up yesterday) and I totally want the due south/dead zone fusion where ray k is all awesome and like fraser is some kind of moosh of walt/sarah. IT WOULD BE AWESOME. Do not make ray kick you in the head with HIS PSYCHIC POWERS.

here is a rec: last night i stayed up too late reading this torchwood fic in which Ianto loses the last 4 years of his memory - The Theory of Two Centres. Links to all parts at the end of the first.
meelie: (atlantis - something terribly wrong)
I love my rock band game, but girl at GAME today playing "Eye of the Tiger" on guitar hero was almost enough to make me think I had made a mistake! but I bought some microsoft money and will be buying songs of even more awesomeness tonight when [ profile] alasen comes over to ROCK. Our band, Moon Revenge, is AWESOME.

in other news, nowhere at the shops had anything i really wanted and yet I still spent too much money. But I have lego batman for $40 and awesomely cute RoTJ han and leia and socks and icecream so I will call it a win.

I am listening to the new Decemberists album, which I have on my stereo as I haven't put it in itunes yet, and while I like it(even though the song about the guy killing off all his kids is super catchy until you listen to the words, and then it is catchy and creepy) it really is an album you have to listen to all of it - not like crane wife, where I must admit I usually just listen to the island/come and see over and over again.
meelie: (here are your mp3's hippie)
free download of a live mountain goats concert. I hear it is good, I am dl'ing it currently. They had me at 'Ace of Base' cover ;P

too tired to get up and cook dinner. but hungry! DILEMMA!
meelie: (atlantis - something terribly wrong)
I am watching mah shows(almost caught up!), but need to let you guys know that the guys replacing the carpet in the hallway outside have moved on from singing along with ac/dc to singing and whistling with katy perry. apparently they kissed a girl, and they liked it!

oh no, now they are butchering pearl jam!
meelie: (atlantis - something terribly wrong)
tegan and sara: enmore theatre 8/1/09:

AWESOME! they played Superstar, which is one of my faves that they have never played live at concerts I have been to! It was sped up and amazing, and beforehand Tegan intro'd it as a song that originally been about 35 minutes long and that there had been a dance that went with it(!!!!)

also: behold the flanstache! (TM [ profile] hnix)

and the behind the scenes of Vegas and Enemy at the Gate photos we were talking about at dinner.

and that manip of the joe rachel balcony mucking around photo, now with bonus tiaras!

also also; my local wore off just before the concert, but the pain isn't too bad! I took a couple of nurafen and it seems to be okay - the sad part was I couldn't yell or sing-a-long during the concert :(
meelie: (casino royale - james has a gun)
Will finish work at a reasonable hour tomorrow. Want to see a movie. Unable to make decisions any more. Or complete sentences. Make up my mind for me, eljay!

[Poll #1017374]

Also, today I saw Harry and the Potters at the Vancouver Public LIbrary and they were awesome!.

I also bought:

* 2 harry and the potters cds
* lunch
* a skirt for $4
* some shorts from espirit for $45
meelie: (Default)

some song recs:

Blue Jeans by Ladytron.

I bought the cd Light and Magic last week mostly for the song "Seventeen" but this song is quickly becoming my fave off the album.

The long version of the Alias theme


The Bold and The Beautiful by the Drugs

each afternoon and there's nothing else suitable, it's tea and bikkies with the bold and the beautiful...
