So I wander on, till someone else is saved

We don't Eat - by James Vincent McMorrow

In celebration of the black-and-blue discordant and brotherly, fucked up and co-dependent, violent and streamlined, mythically touched-in-the-head, horror and dread-struck, epically improved first two episodes of (and a third that while not so brilliant, did not discourage me from the notion that this show has stepped it up a notch) Supernatural, I give you the most Winchester-y song to ever Winchester.

Am I an honest man and true?
Have I been good to you at all?
Oh I'm so tired of playing these games
We'd just be running down
The same old lines, the same old stories of
Breathless trains and, worn down glories
Houses burning, worlds that turn on their own

So we don't eat until your father's at the table
We don't drink until the devil's turned to dust
Never once has any man I've met been able to love
So if I were you my friend, I'd learn to have just a little bit of trust.

This has been an entry. Talk to me about leviathans and Lucifer and lights at the end of the tunnel please.

Vanderlyle Crybaby Geeks

Wee! Exams are over! This means I can have happyfuntimes writing random characters into the mafia!verse. \o/

Also, can someone please come over here and talk to me about how amazing The National's High Violet is? I think it's eaten my heart.


Via [ profile] tearful_eye: Lord of the Rings, as written by different authors.

The Hunter S. Thompson is my favourite:
"We were 20 steps from the exit when the giant flaming Balrons first appeared over our heads. These weren't your normal giant flaming Balrons but some sort of interdimensional Maia that would sit and spin in mid air before dissolving before your very eyes and sneaking up behind you. Gandalf had the pipe and I had the ring which, so far, I had been able to resist trading to the local drug lords for another package of white. Gandalf was shouting random Macrohydration spells while simultaneously trying to not trip over his robes and fall face first into the local pools of goo. Legolas took another drink from his flask and, once again, began explaining how elves were different than humans and much, much mellower."

There's Douglas Adams, Ayn Rand, Mark Twain, Hemingway, J.K Rowling, Chuck Palahniuk, and even one in Lawyer-ese:
"Plaintiff would further show on or about the final day of the Third Age, defendants did intentionally cause the destruction of Ring while plaintiff was engaged in defending his business from hostile takeover. In the alternative, plaintiff pleads that the actions of the defendants toward ring amount to recklessness, gross negligence, and negligence."

And, brilliantly, P.G Wodehouse:
"So Gandalf applied himself to the task at hand - and that's a sight to see that makes strong men gasp and the ladies swoon. You could see the blood whizzing through that magnificent brain of his, chock full of all that health food he grazes on with Tom Bombadil. When there's a problem to be solved, just slip a few nuts and berries to old Gandalf and stand back, I say. Frightening, really."


Now, via [ profile] speccygeekgrrl, a meme:

I think it's inevitable that as we read each other's journals we create mental pictures of each other. Post this on your own journal to find out who your friends see when they read about your life.

Two Rules:
1. Post a picture.
2. The person must be in the movies or on TV (but doesn't have to be an actor/actress). The person can be specific to a role or character or just the person.

And if you feel like it, ask, and I'll do you back!

Bad Reputation!
A picspam and crack!mix for the original book 'verse of 'Howl's Moving Castle', by Diana Wynne Jones.

Howl said, ‘I think we ought to live happily ever after,’ and she thought he meant it. Sophie knew that living happily ever after with Howl would be a good deal more eventful than any story made it sound, though she was determined to try. ‘It should be hair-raising,’ added Howl.

‘And you’ll exploit me,’ Sophie said.

‘And then you’ll cut up all my suits to teach me,’ said Howl. )

But I am yet to attain omnipresent supergalactic oneness.

Is everybody in cyber-land coming out to play yet? I can never figure out the wacky time/space continuum of this place.

(For my Dreamwidth peeps, I'm just crossposting now, and I'm about to put up the Sons of Anarchy primer/picspam I posted on LJ a couple of days ago.)

I spent a happy couple of hours yesterday playing around with my profile because I finally discovered that nothing in the world can stop me from filling it up with as many shiny, pretty things as I want.

So, yay?

I made a little picture bar through the centre out of images found at myheart, which I enjoyed thoroughly, so if anybody wants me to throw one together for them around a theme or just using my basic instincts on you (which ... is not as murderous as it sounds), ask away!

Also, I am currently doped up on painkillers, so take advantage of me before I get back into my right mind. Spinny chairs are fun. You know what movie is awesome? Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls. Forget Citizen Kane, that shit's a masterpiece.

I had a little meta spazz with the wondrous [personal profile] egregiouslypink about Gossip Girl, which I adore, by the way, and so here are some of my thoughts - including spoilers for the latest ep - lifted from her comments and loosely grouped around subject matter and variations of insantiy.

The Hurt Locket: Because Gossip Girl would be infinitely better if it took place in a warzone. )

Also, for all those crazy kids on my flist who are into Sons of Anarchy, here's the rockin' theme song:

This Life - Curtis Stigers & The Forest Rangers

things in my wardrobe, not skeletons, but maybe some brains and hearts

Between Kings, Generation Kill and the first couple of episodes of Sons of Anarchy, I think my type is rapidly diverging from dark, smoldering evil mastermind to blond, morally conflicted men with guns.

Just seen SPN 5.12, hence, meta and whatnot )
FESTIVAL! Things about The Decemberists, Lily Allen, The Mars Volta, Powderfinger, Muse and Peaches )

The Secret History

So I just finished The Secret History, by Donna Tartt (yes, I'm ridiculously late to the party, stop laughing), and my mind is satisfactorily blown. Rather than attempt to impart my impressions through words, at which I would no doubt fail miserably, I instead choose to use pictures, quotations and music.


Spoilers for the book beneath the cut.

Dionysis [is] the Master of Illusions, who could make a vine grow out of a ship's plank, and in general enable his votaries to see the world as the world's not. )

Dreamwidth, Leverage and Change, oh my!

Guys, you guys! I signed up for open ID over at Dreamwidth, and actually got an account in the lucky draw. I THOUGHT THAT WAS JUST AN URBAN CYBER MYTH.

I don't usually make self-referential posts, as most on my flist would know. My journal is almost entirely fannish, but for what it's worth;

Some thoughts on change, Dreamwidth, and believe it or not, the galactic politics of fandom. (+ Music + 2 x Leverage set pics for the win.) )

Re: Obama is the Antichrist



Oh Daily Show, never change.

And now a Supernatural AU of the Political/Punditry fandom has eaten my brain. )

And now, because there is a magnificent one brewing over the ocean, a mix of songs that I, for whatever reason, associate with thunderstorms:


Songs for lovers of thunder and the norms of storms. )
