It's no secret that I'm a total unfaithful music whore. I never buy albums anymore. I find things on youtube and pandora and then I buy them. Sometiems, like with K'naan, I do become a fan of all their stuff. But until I hear more of their shit, I stay to the few songs I have.

Here's what's on replay on my iPod. )
amand_r: (vanilla ice/check out the HOOK!)
MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEMEMEMEMEMEMEEEEEEEEEEEE.

LYRICS )

eta: ha ha NONE OF YOU HAVE GOTTEN ANY OF THE HIP-HOP ONES. OMG U ARE ALL LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME.
amand_r: (amanda is nuts)
1. What's with Family Guy's Conway Twitty thing? It started with short clips, and now 7.13 had a whole performance of "I See The 'Want To' In Your Eyes". Not that I didn't LOL, but what up with this? Did Seth MacFarlane get the rights to all Conway Twitty's music or something?

2. The drawback to CLEAN ALL THE THINGS in my house is that I don't want to write. Why does this happen? It happens when I have a shitload of things to do, that's for damn sure. Wholas, kinky krimmas, the twfemfic fest, about six original fic things to do, plus that charity book thing (NO I HAVEN'T FORGOTTEN, TWITTER PEOPLE). I need something to jumpstart my ass. OH AND ALSO I HAVE THAT SEASON OF TORCHWOOD WOT I BE DOING. JESUS.

SOMEONE KICK ME IN THE ARSE.

3. My fried egg fu is sufficiently warmed up, so tonight it's stout and cheddar rarebit with fried eggs and the old stand-by, carrots and leeks. Oh carrots and leeks, why can't I quit you? I am using balsamic vinegar again instead of red wine vinegar.

4. My kid is in preschool! She started Monday, and so far so good.

5. This year she wants to be Snow White for Halloween. See Mander drive from one store to another.

6. I SEE THE 'WANT TO' IN YOUR EYES.

7. Ever look at all your junk and become filled with the urge to see how much of it you can sell? Because I think that might be my new hobby.

8. Writing a short story about a unicorn showing up on a midwest farm, and it's not going to have a happy ending. But all this urban or modern fantasy, I have no idea who takes it. My horror is not going over well with the horror markets. All my rejections are like, "This is good, but it's not us. Do you have anything more us?" It's enough to make a girl turn to poetry. Which, oh hai quiet passion.

9. I keep all my books that I'm currently reading stashed about the house in places. I have, at any given time, about 8 of them, and sometimes I substitute more when I get in a new pulp crap thing that I'll do in three days (or hours). So I finished Wharton, and picked up The Abridged Tale of Genji, like a responsible reader. Then I got waylaid by The Murder of Biggie Smalls. BUT THEN I GOT WAYLAID BY LKH'S NEW ANITA BLAKE BOOK. OH MY GOD IF MY READING HABITS WERE A NASDAQ CHART, IT WOULD LOOK LIKE BLACK MONDAY. With any luck I can skim my way through LKH and back into Biggie and then into Genji and the Burroughs I cracked the other day.

10. Okay, I just want to state for the record that I find it humourous, given the general attitude that the lyrics of Death Row records used to have re: the police, that they would only hire off-duty cops for their security. On one hand it's heartening, because it shows that it's possible to believe in the corruption of some of the police dept and still believe in their abilities or that some of them are good. On the other hand it's lol.

11. I have a mental image of Jack teaching Lois, Maggie and Robert how to lindy hop after hours in the atrium, to this song. They all have their shoes off, and they're goofing off in their stocking feet in the atrium. Gwen and Dee are in their offices pretending they don't hear. But they do. Gwen gives in, but Dee puts her head phones in and listens to Barry Manilow. BEANS AND CORNBREAD.

as found on youtube, in the comments to a recording of 'Yakety Sax':

This is one of those songs where you put it on your mp3 player and then you listen to music with a friend, forgetting it's on there and it comes up and the friend just goes "Why do you have this...?"

THAT'S PRECISELY IT.

The other day I found this on my player. I have had it since 2004. WTF.

amand_r: (guy gardner/thumbs up!)
Really, now. )

I love you, Murs.
amand_r: (bunny/i'm a meanie)
[livejournal.com profile] alba17 gave me J for Jack in that music meme thing.

Everyone is going to regret it. )

THERE YOU GO. FRESH OFF MY IPOD. I AM SORRY.

GIVE ME ANOTHER LETTER AND I'LL DO IT AGAIN!
amand_r: (COFFEE)
Firstly, let us all take a moment to appreciate the fine lyrical genius of Salt N Pepa's 1993 masterpiece, "Whatta Man", the Bechdel-strangling powerhouse ballad performed with nineties flash-paper early Destiny's Child predecessor, En Vogue:

What a man, what a man, what a man what a mighty good man
What a man, what a man, what a man what a mighty good man…


Just kidding. )

2. That said, I recently tried Caribou Coffee's offering, called Mahogany.

I want to take a minute or two, and give much respect due to the coffee I been drinking in the morn. )

3. Okay here's the thing—That Torchwood VS. I haven't been saying anything, and that's kind of shit because I wrote an ep with [livejournal.com profile] cruentum and it was AWESOME, and Blue wrote and ep, and it was FUCKING AWESOME, and some other people wrote eps that were great, and all, but I didn't rec them all, and it's one of those things where you feel skeevy reccing one over the other. On the other hand, we all have a favorite TW script writer or preferred episodes, so I'll rec this week:

Family Business by [livejournal.com profile] misswinterhill because it has Rhiannon and Ianto and Jack and all the fun. IT HAS BRICK THROWING JOHNNY, but they're all done so well.

Here's the thing. I think any instance in which we delve into Jack and Ianto's relationship in fanfic has the potential to go smooshy in an unrealistic way. Miss Thang doesn't do that. There's Ianto background, tension, a fight, all the while the MAIN plot is going on, and it's lovely, too.

I told Miss Thang and Crue, and so I'll say it here. She's got a gift for humor and timing, better than I've seen in a long time. I say it all the time and that makes me a ho, but a lot of people out there try to write humor, and they are "meh". They don't suck, but it's not…it doesn't have that click that comes from understanding timing or, more importantly, when to stop. Some people find a funny line, and yeah it was good, but then they push it further in the dialogue, keep the joke running too long. Miss Thang's good at knowing where that line is.

Thanks, girl.

NEXT WEEK, there will be the powerhouse of [livejournal.com profile] blue_fjords and [livejournal.com profile] kel_reiley. I've read the first half—it's fantastic. And if you haven't checked out Blue's co written ep Half-Baked, do so. RHYS AND CUPCAKES. Her JJ and his Torchwood training videos completely fleshed out a whole section of TW that I had never thought of before. HAAA.

And in closing:

Like engine-engine number nine
I got the rump-shakin' flavor with the nasty rhyme
So if the crowd can move with me, move with me
Salt-N-Pepa said groove with me, groove with me.


That is all.
amand_r: (COFFEE)
1. KIDLET NEWS:



I don't get why her "Cheese!" face is her Mongolian sneer. Tyra would tell her that her pose is full of Dreckitude. "VIV! WHERE IS YOUR NECK? ARE YOU SMIZING?"

Also, today she told me she had to pee (seriously, this was one of the hardest things to get her to do), and I told her to go up to the potty herself. AND SHE DID. AND SHE USED TOILET PAPER, AND SHE CAME BACK DOWN. Poor thing did it in the dark, since out bathroom has no windows. SO I TAUGHT HER TO TURN THE LIGHT ON AND OFF. HURRAY FOR SELF-SUFFICIENCY!

2. And now for some random pics of shit wot I like. )

3. Lastly, let us all take a moment to appreciate the fine lyrical genius of Salt N Pepa's 1993 masterpiece, "Somebody's Getting' on My Nerves":

Why don't you tell the story right, man?
The only skins you ever hit was the skins on your right hand.
You rolled up on me in your man's Beemer
And I could look at you and tell you was a meat-beatin' daydreamer.
You put the window down tryin' to act real slick
And started smilin' like a hooker with a bag of tricks.
You stuck your hand out the window trying to show me gold,
Your forty-second street Rolex was kinda old.
I wrote a number, and I know you thought you'd get humped,
But it was Dial-A-Date 1-900-CHUMP.
So why you runnin' around town playin' Jeopardy?
Get off my bra-strap, boy, stop sweatin' me.


Yes, get off my bra strap, peoples. LAWL. Personally, I don't think "meat-beating daydreamer" gets nearly enough usage.
amand_r: (tw/jack licks eleven)
1. I want Jonathan Creek and Maddy to hook up. I know it probably won't happen.

2. [livejournal.com profile] copperbadge wrote Scott/John volcano phone sex. YEAH. John Versus the Volcano. LOL.

3. [livejournal.com profile] adjovi was stuck in Benin because of volcanic ash. Read her awesome adventures on flying AIR MALI and their tickets printed on WORD DOCUMENTS.

4. [livejournal.com profile] curriejean sent me a necklace of awesome. Pics when my hair is being better, BUT she also sent me stickers! VOTE SAXON stickers!

5. Big ass bang is at 14 K and that's just episode one. a snippet, because I can't not. )

6. Lastly, let us all take a moment to appreciate the fine lyrical genius of Salt N Pepa's 1993 masterpiece, "Step":

I'm your honey-dipper so you say, you know
Then you react and attack every flirt and ho
But oh, no - you gots to go now, bro
To and fro, unh-unh, no mo'
So just walk out the door and be out like Margetta[?]
I've been through this before, but now I think I betta
Kick ya to the curb cuz this hurts, word
You dis and wanna kiss? Now that's absurd
Yo, Spinderella ain't the kind type to be pulled down, ya know
Before I go out I go blow-for-blow
So tell those hos that sittin' there waitin' by the phone
That they can have you cuz you's gone.


Because Spinderella is the best DJ name EVAR. (Except for DJ Panda).
amand_r: (batman/how exciting is this?)
Senegalese rap, anyone?

Esperanza, by Daara J (feat. Sergent Garcia)

MEOW MEOW.

And if you just want to look:

amand_r: (vanilla ice/check out the HOOK!)
Reports of my demise are very accurate. I give myself an hour on the computer every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and possibly one on the weekend. I have no idea because I haven't got there yet. Maybe someday I'll tell you about WTF happened, but absence makes me loff you more, and so it's all good.

Instead, an old entry. For all you bitches.

It's no secret that I love hip-hop. I know y'all don't. Tha's coo'. I'm about to write a small paper here, that has no structure.

WHAT I DID ON MY WINTER VACATION
WHY I LOVE RAP
OMG HOW DO YOU NOT KNOW NOTORIOUS BIG?
SOMETIMES RHYMING IS HARD
THE DUCK BILLED PLATYPUS

AMAND-R VOMITS A BUNCH OF CRAP ABOUT RAP

by amand-r )

BUT THAT IS NOT WHY WE ARE HERE TODAY. WE ARE HERE TODAY BECAUSE I STARTED LISTENING TO THE RADIO AGAIN. ASIDE FROM THE FACT THAT I FINALLY HEARD THE "BARROWMANCE" LADY GAGA SONG (AND WHY IS THERE NO RPS JB VID TO THIS? THE MAN IS ON EVERY BBC SHOW IN THE UNIVERSE, THERE HAS TO BE ENOUGH FOOTAGE.), I HAD THE PLEASURE OF HEARING YOUNG MONEY'S SONG: BEDROCK.

OH HOLY GOD IN HELL, IT'S LIKE COMEDY AND SURREALIST POETRY ALL ROLLED UP INTO ONE. )

And one of the rappers from the song is using the dentist to prolong his time before he goes to jail. Oh Lil Wayne, you make me lol. TAKE ALL YOUR BLING OUT FIRST, BUDDY!
amand_r: (paperclip/writing)
Let's take a moment, before we start to think about the following two things.

a. Kris Kross? Remember them? Haahaha.
b. A line from their song "Jump": Don't try to compare us to another bad little fad

HAAAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHA. HA. That is all.

1. [livejournal.com profile] husiemama sent me the following PM: Blue Gillespie-"We have finally named our debut album Synesthesia."

OH LOLOLOLOLOL CLARKY. RHYS. OTHER PEOPLE, LET ME BUY YOU A PINT. OR THREE. WHAT CAN I GET FOR 7.44? ILUGUISE.

Seriously, people, I want to smoke a joint with these dudes so fucking much. Like, we'll get together, smoke up, talk about dumb shit, eat some Twiglets or whatever, and then they'll go away and I'll take a nap.

2. SICK STOP SEND SHERPAS STOP SEXY SHERPAS STOP ARMED WITH HOT OILS AND THOSE ROCKS THEY PUT ON YOUR BACK STOP ALSO MAYBE SOME SOUP STOP

3. FOR CONTENT, I PRESENT THIS DUMBASS MEME:

Step 1: Put your MP3 player on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 20 songs that play.
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

OH YEAH, YOU GUYS ARE SCREWED. I SKIPPED ALL THE FOREIGN LANGUAGE ONES. )
amand_r: (bunny/well helloooooo loser)
1. Putting the kidlet to bed, and she starts counting people on her fingers, which is how Joan-ma did it to list all of the people who were coming to her birthday party. So it used to be: "Steve and Emily and Chuck, and Dana…" etc. Now it was the following:

Her: Unca Jer, and a-Steve, and a shark and Dana.
Me: A shark? Really?
Her: Ohhhhh yeah! (grabs her thumb) And a mama.
Me: So glad I'm included in the shark party.
Her: (so serious) With spidermancake and Santa Claus and snowmans.

I have recently discovered that all things Spiderman have now been termed "spidermancake". Good to know.

2. RECS COMING WHEN I GET OFF MY ARSE.

3. I played Rockband for the first time the other night, and it was depressing because all I could think was how much Tianyu would have loved it, and there's no one in my house to play it with. On the inverse, I drunkenly got a 99% on "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" on Hard, and I have never sung it before, so that has to mean something.

4. Okay so I had a CRAZY ASS DREAM. IT INVOLVED TORCHWOOD, JACK, SOME OTHER PEOPLE WHO I DON'T REMEMBER AND DALEKS. BASICALLY, IT WAS AN EPISODE OR SOMETHING. )

So that was it. W.T.F.

5. In honor of the awesomeness that is Jack, I present for you today: a little Ray Charles. Baby if you want to stay on my mind, now, you've got to love your daddy all the time.
amand_r: (deadlikeme/delores has doubts)
1. YEARS AGO, [livejournal.com profile] basingstoke offered a download of Kate Bush's Wuthering Heights, saying something like, "OMG THIS IS THE BATMAN/JOKER LOVE SONG". I know she said something like that because that's the only way you'd get me to download Kate Bush.

Now, YEARS LATER, I find it hidden in the recesses of an old hard drive. OMG IT IS THE BATMAN/JOKER LOVE SONG. WTF.

FUCKING. NUTBALLS.

2. My mail is insane. Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] curriejean (EATEN BY WEEVILS!), [livejournal.com profile] stasha2g, [livejournal.com profile] beesandbrews, [livejournal.com profile] sthayashi, [livejournal.com profile] lucy_locket, [livejournal.com profile] blue_fjords, [livejournal.com profile] husiemama (SEXY JACK LOOKS FOR CRIMMAS SPIRIT! AND PORN!), [livejournal.com profile] electro_club (DALEK CARD!), [livejournal.com profile] verasteine, and [livejournal.com profile] lastrega! OMG LOVELY CARDS!

I officially have more fandom peeps cards than RL peeps. I would feel bad about this , except for most of my RL peep cards talk about Jesus, and most of my fandom cards talk about porn and daleks. It's easy to understand which one I would prefer. :)

[livejournal.com profile] emquilxy sent me a coupon for free tuna! WHO DOES NOT LOVE FREE TUNA.

3. I have deadlines. Again. I am slightly stressed. Imma take a shower and play with playdoh.

4. OMG THE L WORD. I STARTED SEASON FIVE. I HATE JENNY SCHECTER. HATE HATE HATE. Also, in retrospect, they handled the military thing really well. They could have done that whole "the military sucks" thing, but they balanced it well.

5. [livejournal.com profile] wynkat1313, I have not forgot about your thing. I have it in googledocs now.
amand_r: (christmas/mc chris evergreen)
I know a lot of you have been all, "Oh! I love this song" or that song or something. I share with you, my favorite crimmas song ever: MC Chris's "Evergreen" about those swindler kids who sell you Christmas trees.

Available here, though you really should give the man money.

Well on the first day of Christmas my dealer gave to me A bag of 'shrooms and some LSD )

And a little bit of Prince, for [livejournal.com profile] cruentum: Lemon Crush HAAHAHAHAHAHAHA. DRINK MOAR.
