two_grey_rooms: (i'm not going home. not really.)
i (predictably) have not read my flist since i got back to school, but tonight i am procrastinating hardcore, so i have come crawling back! HALLOOOOO, WORLD. i have really nothing to say except that i have twelve days to write two conference papers, so i am going to do the only possible logical thing and share two songs wot i have been playing obsessively the past couple of days.


cannot stop watching or listening. it has been stuck in my head forever, so i am hoping to infiltrate your brain too so as not to be alone. HUZZAH. is also a really excellent break-up song.


this one has no video, but it is an awesome awesome song about addiction, which automatically makes it my favorite ever.

PLEASE DISTRACT ME FROM CONFERENCE PAPER HELL, FLIST. I EVEN HAVE UPLOAD LINKS IF YOU ARE INTERESTED! HERE IS "THE YOUNG THOUSANDS" AND HERE IS "SOMEBODY THAT I USED TO KNOW." PLEASE BE MY FRIEND SOMEBODY TALK TO ME I HAVE BEEN STARING AT THIS SCREEN FOR SO LONG OH GOD WHAT IS SLEEP

so, tonight i am feeling simultaneously sleepy and restless and am having difficulty reconciling the two. while i figure out whether it would be more appropriate to take a walk or go to bed, you all get to enjoy the guess-the-song meme! isn't that exciting? (random strangers who may be reading this, feel free to jump in.)

you know the rules: no fucking search engines, you goddamn cheating scoundrels.

eta: instead of striking out the correctly identified lyrics, i decided to tuck the song titles under a cut. so if you still want to play and you're late to the game, you can choose to ignore the answers. i'm so fucking courteous, i know.

WALL OF FAME YAYE )


1. you ole fire/i'm mad with desire/you're my favorite one/got me cooking with the fever, got my love runnin' for the sun

2. and when i see the sign that points one way/a light i used to pass by every day

3. you could say i surrender on all fours/to some bright holy light from above/you could bravely be the first to spill this vile demon's blood

4. how many wasted days, wasted nights on you/i can't even count that high/haven't i tried to?

5. there are those boys with earthly eyes/their eyes are like the ground/you walk and walk, kicking up dirt/but they don't make a sound

6. on and on and on we'll be together, yeah/on and on and on we'll stay together, yeah

7. aren't you gonna come along/aren't you gonna fight/aren't you gonna hold your hands up to the light?

8. strange face with your eyes/so pale and sincere/underneath, you know well/you have nothing to fear

9. begin to hope and all the colors start to change/beneath the light, you might forget that the world's so sad

10. at the zombie dance/here's ben and betty/they tap their toes/but they don't get sweaty

11. when i'm at the pearly gates/this'll be on my videotape, my videotape

12. flew in from miami beach boac/didn't get to bed last night/on the way the paper bag was on my knee/man, i had a dreadful flight

13. give me smut and nothing but/a dirty novel i can't shut/if it's uncut and unsubt...le

14. prettiest world i know, stole away all the show/you are so easy to love/you are so hard to let go

15. out of the box, out of the kitchen/out of the world she's grown so fearful of

16. bustelo, marlboro/banana by the bunch/a box of captain crunch will taste so good

17. guardo il cielo e non vedo altro colore/solo grigio piombo che mi spegne il sole/l'unica certezza è gli occhi che io ho di te

18. here's the guy i'd like to thank/he signs the checks and leaves 'em blank/he's the one/he says, "you don't have to walk the plank/the game is rigged, go figure"

19. do i attract you/do i repulse you/with my queasy smile

20. my baby's out there/with his lantern searching for an honest man

21. it is a thursday/i get up early/it is a challenge/i'm usually lazy

22. i haven't fucked much with the past/but i've fucked plenty with the future

23. i found a reason/to keep living/oh, and the reason, dear, is you

24. my mind's not right my mind's not right my mind's not right my mind's not right

25. i'll sing it one last time for you/then we really have to go/you've been the only thing that's right/in all i've done

do you know what i am? A LIAR. a wretched, wretched liar.

well. maybe not entirely. i am sort of an accidental liar, which isn't really lying at all, is it (IS IT?). i am just chronically indecisive, i suppose (OR AM I?).

yeah. if that last declaration didn't give you a headache, i applaud you for your stamina. i'm not leaving after all. but i'm manifestly phasing back into livejournal, and that mandates a bit of tidying up. which means: IMPENDING FRIENDS CUT AHOOOOOOY. and there ain't no pussy-footin' around when i cut friends. BITCH, I WILL CUT YOU, AND THAT IS A THREAT. MERRY FUCKING CHRISTMAS.

...oh ho, had you going, didn't i? yeah. there will be no friends cut. i just wanted to sit back and watch the good ol'-fashioned lj-style shitstorm. ah, it's good to be home.

well. i did delete a few accounts from my flist. but um. i didn't remember adding them to begin with? if you're reading this right now and you think i made a grievous mistake, please chime in and deliver me a harangue about what an idiot i am.

yeah, so. in conclusion: i'm a dunderhead. a dunderhead who is keeping this account--but there may yet be a name change in store, so keep yer eyes out fer that plox.

hmm. so as to allow myself to pretend that there is in fact some substance in this post, i am going to tell you about a website i am currently loving the fuck out of. it is called weheartit.com (or "we hear tit," as i'd originally pronounced it, which i infinitely prefer), and it's a place where you pack-rat all your favorite images. like delicious, but specifically for shiny things. or: like flickr, but for those who prefer plagiarism to industry--erm, i mean collecting to creating. here's muh heart. you should get an account there too, and we could "follow" each other like the stalkers we are.

tonight i realized that collins is my favorite rent character. if i were a facebook quiz, i would think this truth spoke volumes about me. but seriously, folks, why is collins never anyone's favorite? this befuddles me. collins is the man. i want to smash the state with him, and then get wicked drunk and laugh about how totally ridiculous we are.

...yeah, rent. i always listen to rent 'round the holidays. who else here does that? ADMIT IT, GODLESS SODOMITES. or at the very least, admit you're a godless sodomite.

anyway. yeah. merry christmas to all you godless sodomites and to all you christian folk who actually celebrate the holiday. enjoy your eggnog. and i hope the monstrous number of times i've said "yeah" in this entry didn't spoil your holiday cheer.
