Crap! I missed a day! Here's a two in one. Also hoping everyone had a good Fourth!

Day 9: A childhood memory T.V. theme tune

Rocko's Modern Life. I STILL love this show, as dated as it is now.



Day 10: A song from one of your favorite albums

It feels a bit like I'm cheating since Alcehmy Vol 1 by Poets of the Fall is technically a greatest hits, BUT they did include two new songs. And while Can You Hear Me is just wonderful, the lyrics to No End, No Beginning just strike me so much deeper. I think its the "I'm secretly grateful you're sharing this moment with me" that hits me the hardest.

Mmm Poets.



nothing witty here tonight )

8. A song you used to love but now hate

Urg. That's difficult for me because there's so little that I actually "hate", and generally it takes me hating it from the start.

... I think this is kind of cheating because I can't honestly remember if I DID like it or not, but... in my defense, I was like. Four. I probably did like it until all the name jokes started cropping up.

867-5309 (Jenny) - Tommy Tutone



AAAA I HATE MY NAME Dx
The 80's were a strange time... )

6. A novelty song

Nya Nyan Dance - UTAUloids



I STILL LOVE THIS VERSION BEST. Nyan Cat can go choke on a rainbow. Chibi UTAUloids are much cuter. Especially Tei-chan.

crappin' rainbows over here )

4. A song you can remember your parents listening to

Pretty Maids All in a Row - The Eagles



One of my dad's favorite albums when I was growing up was the Eagles: Hell Freezes Over album. There are so many songs I could pick just from that band alone, and most people probably at the very least know Hotel California (which was featured on the album as it was their reunion tour) but as much as I love that song... honestly my favorite is a toss up between New York Minute and Pretty Maids All in a Row.

And since I actually used this once in an RP setting as one character singing it to another in a lullaby... I'uno, this one just speaks to me a little more than New York Minute did when I was a kid.

SPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE )

Day 3! Wee!

3. A song that reminds you of a night out

I'm On a Boat - The Lonely Island



Okay, stay with me here. Just close your eyes and picture this.

A tiny 5'4" blonde girl in glasses, in a karaoke booth in Seattle, Washington, singing this.

It happened.

A couple of years ago [livejournal.com profile] mellonemrys  and I went up to Seattle to visit my sister, Koto and go to a small anime convention called ChibiChibiCon. The first night there Koto rented a karaoke booth for us in downtown, which included getting us and our various friends and cohorts alcohol. About halfway through the night Koto saw that "I'm On A Boat" was on there and, giggling the entire way, put it in for her turn. And she did it. The whole song. Swears and everything. It was BEAUTIFUL.

The best thing?

The machine glitched and played it TWICE. By the end we were all in to it. It was ridiculous and so much fun.


did you know that "meme" comes from the phrase "memetic mutation"? )
jenioctavia: (Riiiiiiiight....)
2.  A song from the first album you ever bought.


Ahahaha... ohman... this. This going to date me.

The first album I ever bought... you ready for this? Are you?

The first album I ever bought myself with my own money was..



The soundtrack to SpaceJam.

Yup. I was thirteen. I WANTED the soundtrack to Dangerous Minds but it had that damn parental warning on it and I couldn't get it, so I settled for one of my other favorite movies which was, at the time, SpaceJam. Crazy, right?

Anyway... it wasn't a BAD album perse but it wasn't the best music either. Of course I think EVERYONE who was around during that time remembers how Fly Like An Eagle (remade by Seal) and I Believe I Can Fly were on the radio CONSTANTLY because of it. So... I'll spare those songs and pick something else.

I honestly liked the Monstar's Theme (Hit 'em High) a lot. It's one of the few off the album I still listen to besides the title song and Fly Like An Eagle. Plus the video isn't horrible! And yes I have it on iTunes now. :P I'm a dork.



 


Meme (How many people are gonna post a Rickroll on day 100?) )
jenioctavia: (Haruhi Slumps)
I know I said I was going to finish those entries about what happened to my mom a while ago, but my desire to write lengthy things kind of went the wayside when school started. But yay I'm back at LCC!

Anyway, I will continue some day, but for now, lets have a meme.

Jacked from [livejournal.com profile] dandywonderous 

Day 1 - A song you know all the lyrics to

Ohgod I know so many... I think right now the ones I know the best are Poets of the Fall songs (which will probably get put on here a lot) just because I listen to them CONSTANTLY. And "Stay" is still among my top favorites by them (though "No End, No Beginning" is edging its way up there. God that one is beautiful.)

Aaand I can't find a lyrics video, so I'll just link to the official site for lyrics.



"Stay" Lyrics

It's midnight, it totally counts as day two. Also spoilers for Season 8/9 of CSI in this one.

2. Your least favorite character )
jenioctavia: (Greg's Giggle)
Figured I'd give this a shot, because honestly, how often do I even update?

Took me forever to figure out WHAT series I should do (since Vocaloid has no story, xxxHoLic is rather limited on the character front, Myst is too complicated, and I seem to lack opinions on characters when it comes to Avatar: The Last Airbender and Fullmetal Alchemist. That or I just haven't thought about it much) until I realized, oh, it's staring me in the face as in my huge collection of CSI DVDs, the manga, the Behind the Scenes book and three of the novels. Yeah, they're all sitting on my bookshelf. Durr.

Anyway. Let's get this party started I guess?

Isn't there some... rule of thumb that injuries, specifically muscle-and-tendon related injuries, always hurt worse the second and third day?

I think I'm on that right now. I was able to hobble around last night without much trouble, which was good for going to the bathroom and getting a drink. But today at about 11 am FedEX was knocking at the door and throwing Roxie in to a fit. Even injured I'm faster than Mom when it comes to walking so I hobbled to the door to answer it (it was her monthly retirement check, which they're SUPPOSED to direct deposit in to her account, fuckers) and went back to bed after.

I got up to go to the bathroom around 2 and ow ohgod. It's way stiffer and sorer than yesterday. Dx

I'm... staying in bed today as much as humanly possible. *s-sob*

This term is going to kill me, I swear.

I won't go in to major details, but long and short of it is that I've been having trouble keeping up in some of my classes. I think I've mostly worked everything out at this point.

What's really going to kill me though?

That damn school. I've gotten sick, STAYED sick for weeks. And today? I fell flat on my face on the sidewalk. My leg and arm are all banged up and my hands got torn up, too.

This is where Greggo's "I'm having a really bad year" icon would be nice to have in my personal journal. For now, I'll just settle with "Bitch, please" because it speaks to how I feel ANYWAY.

... have a meme.
