memes + spn day! + vampire pornography + supernatural fandom is crazy but sometimes fun  
1. So I spent today between studying Medieval stuff which is so boring I want to tear my hair out and twittering #luciferisrising, which means I ended up right there in the pseudo-religious war before they stopped everything. I mean, how freaking stupid is it that Puff Daddy of everyone (I refuse to call him by his current name, it's too ridiculous and I don't care about him enough really) sees the tweets for the SPN premiere, thinks we're Satanists and starts #godishere topics? And then of course Twitter shut both of them down and it looks like it has made Fox News, but seriously. Click on the tag and it becomes fairly clear that it's not a horde of Satanists taking over Twitter. Seriously. So much fail, but it's also way too amusing for its own good. Also, Puff Daddy should go hiding and watch more TV, but whatever. Though at least it was a welcome parenthesis from idiots discussing whether angels move celestial spheres or not and God's free will. *sigh*

2. MEMES! Uh, so, tagged by ladymacbeth77 for this one. Rules: Don't think to much. Write down a list of 15 books you're really attached to. Don't take more than 15 minutes: write down the first 15 coming to your mind! Tag 15 friends. -> whoever wants to do it. I'm too Medieval brain-dead to tag.

1. 1984 (George Orwell)
2. The Three Musketeers (Alexandre Dumas)
3. Wuthering Heights (Emily Bronte)
4. The Dark Tower Series - The Waste Lands (Stephen King) / well, I figured that a series of seven books can't count for one, can it?
5. The Grapes Of Wrath (John Steinbeck)
6. Maurice (E. M. Forster)
7. Lolita (Vladimir Nabokov)
8. The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay (Michael Chabon)
9. Diary (Anne Frank)
10. The Wasteland (T. S. Eliot) / I hope poems are valid, too?
11. Tomorrow in the Battle Think On Me (Javier Marìas)
12. High Fidelity (Nick Hornby)
13. Slaughterhouse V (Kurt Vonnegut)
14. Ten Little Indians (Agatha Christie)
15. Good Omens (Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman)

3. Stolen from practically everyone: sharing is caring!

For one week, recommend/share:
→ Day 1: a song
Day 2: a picture
Day 3: a book/ebook/fanfic
Day 4: a site
Day 5: a youtube clip
Day 6: a quote
Day 7: whatever tickles your fancy

And since day 1 is songs and I haven't inflicted music upon you in a while... you get three. ;)

Last Kiss by Pearl Jam -> I fell in love with this. Yeah, yeah, I'm still not done with my Pearl Jam phase and while this is a cover it's just so beautiful. And Eddie's voice, MMM.

Billie Jean by Chris Cornell -> so. I generally never liked Michael Jackson too much (musically speaking), with this song being the only exception (and I guess I'm not original there), but this version? Freaking wow. I just love how he completely re-worked it. And his voice, dammit. Just a gem imo.

I've Been Delivered by Wallflowers -> My latest obsession. They're good. REALLY good. (Btw, thanks wandersfound. ;) ) I'm still on the discovering phase, but this one is seriously so good. It has lyrics which are awesome and imo are kind of the proof that someone in there is related to Bob Dylan and the music is so good and just, they're awesome.

White Boots Marching In A Yellow Land by Eric Anderson with Wyclef Jean -> this was on the Sowing The Seeds compilation I bought because of a Springsteen/Seeger duet, which btw is the best compilation ever. It's another cover (lol, cover post!) of a 60s protest song done with the Afghanistan war in mind (I think it was recorded months after it started) and apart from me liking the lead singer a lot, I really ended up digging the folk-song-with-rock-arrangements + rap mixup. It's just so unique.

I'll Cover You from the RENT movie soundtrack -> so, pnr got me hooked up on Rent and while I think that my favorite song is Another Day, lately I'm totally all over this. It's just so lovely and it's my Rent OTP singing it and it just makes me happy when I listen to it. If I don't think about what happens in act II, but that's another problem.

4. I can't believe tomorrow morning (for me, tonight for you lucky not-Europeans) not only the SPN hiatus will be over, but I'll get the vampire pornography which means HIS PRETTINESS ON MY PC REGULARLY AGAIN. *dies*

5. Also, if today's craziness on Twitter has some results, I sure hope as hell that SPN's ratings are very high and that since the vampire pornography is paired with them, that it gets good ratings too. Ohmyyy.

6. Expect a heavy politics bitching post in a couple of days maybe. And it won't be pretty, but I won't let a certain idiot ruin my squeeage for point #4.

7. Okay, guess I'll go and head to bed, so at least I don't have the risk of oversleeping tomorrow morning. I doubt it'd happen, but still. Happy SPN day everyone who gets it regularly! ;)

It was seriously the single dumbest thing I have ever heard of in my life, and the utter magnitude of his epic fucking fail just boggles my mind. ONE CLICK. One click and he would have seen that we are not, in fact, a bunch of satanists or whatever. Oh god, it's so ridiculous - I was laughing like a madwoman. He is such a douchebag. God's Army? Really?

I LOVE, LIKE, ALL OF THOSE BOOKS! Maurice! Lolita! 1984! Slaughterhouse V! Good Omens! HAPPINESS!

Hiatus, she is over! AND OMG OMG OMG IAN!!!!! Oh, how I have missed seeing his pretty face on my TV screen. So much.

Sleep well, dear. <3

LOL, really? I mean, fine, when you change your name to P. Diddy you're obviously not worth my attention (and not that he ever made decent music in his life lol) but that one was just so failing that I can't help finding it so amusing. I mean, SERIOUSLY? Come on. Idiot, he is.

AND HA, GOOOOD!! HAVING BOOKS IN COMMON IS ALWAYS SO GOOD. ♥

AND YES HIATUS IS DONE AND IAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNN. I had my sporadic fixs of pretty but it was crap movies and now it's a series possibly getting more than one season and once each week so YAAAAAY!!

and thanks, though I doubt my excitement will let me. <3 ;)

I'm so glad you mentioned The Three Musketeers. People rarely talk about that book anymore and I love it to pieces. Maurice and Wuthering Heights are also two of my favourites.
the female ghost of tom joad: booksjanie_tangerine on September 11th, 2009 06:08 am (UTC)
If not for 1984 it'd so be my favorite book! It's just all-round amazing, I love it to pieces too. What's not to love in there? And yay for Maurice and Wuthering Heights too! Sometimes I feel like I don't know anyone who actually read the latter.
Laura: Indiana Jones and the Last Crusademozartfan1313 on September 12th, 2009 12:08 am (UTC)
Have you read the sequel, The Man in the Iron Mask? It's not as entertaining and rousing as The Three Musketeers but still a great conclusion to their adventures.

I love E.M. Forster and Maurice and A Room With A View are tied for my favourites of his (although I have yet to read Passage to India).
the female ghost of tom joad: booksjanie_tangerine on September 12th, 2009 12:42 am (UTC)
I read Twenty Years Later, but not The Man In The Iron Mask. Or better, I started it but then I left it because I had my high school final exam and never got back to it, but I'm planning on taking it back again. I loved Twenty Years later though.

Passage To India is really a great read, even if my favorite is Maurice followed by A Room With A View. But that one comes close, I'd totally recommend it. ;)
Laura: Lonesome Dove: Gus McCraemozartfan1313 on September 12th, 2009 01:32 am (UTC)
I've never read that one. I'll have to add that to my list.

Yeah, I think Maurice might slightly edge out Room With A View as well.

Ha, I didn't know it was but YEAH. Even if my PM provides me bitching all the year, but he's drawing the limit. *sigh*

PEARL JAM!! I LOVE PJ DAMMIT. Why didn't I start listening to them earlier? ;) We're in two, at least.

1. That was just stupid, amusing...but, stupid as hell. lol. Guess, a year from now we can all look back on this and remember with fondness...the day that Supernatural Stole Twitter. lolz.
the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural bon jovi rocksjanie_tangerine on September 11th, 2009 06:10 am (UTC)
INDEED. LOL, we totally stole it, didn't we? ;) And he can suck it up. *cough*
just a girl: [spn] ruby; misunderstood_touched on September 11th, 2009 08:24 pm (UTC)
Heh, we totally did and it's really kinda fantastic, if you think about it. lol. But srsly, I'm with Misch...the man's just too damned afraid to turn on his tv or apparently click on a link to see what it's all about BEFORE WAGING THE EPIC HOLY WAR or something. Ugh...idiot!
Shonatoestastegood on September 11th, 2009 06:13 am (UTC)
1. LOL! I hadn't heard about that. What utter, complete fail.
the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural dean is not amusedjanie_tangerine on September 11th, 2009 06:17 am (UTC)
It was so made of fail you couldn't help laugh. Also because everyone ended up twittering the lucifer tag a lot harder. ;) LOL indeed!

I have seven of your books in my bookcase. I've been meaning to try out Dumas.

During all the Jackson death hype I heard that version of Billie Jean and really liked it. Ah Rent! The lyrics in that song are so romantic.
the female ghost of tom joad: musicjanie_tangerine on September 12th, 2009 12:38 am (UTC)
Dumas is GOOD! I just love that book too much. Also, it's satisfying under every aspect. -nod-

I just love that cover. The original is good too, but that version just has something about it. *sigh* And that about I'll Cover You. It turns me into mush. ♥
siluria: Rob Shadowsiluria on September 11th, 2009 06:56 pm (UTC)
Pearl Jam and Chris Cornell I have huge soft spots for - especially the Billie Jean cover!
the female ghost of tom joad: musicjanie_tangerine on September 12th, 2009 12:39 am (UTC)
Heee, AWESOME! Also, great taste there. ;) ;) That cover is just so good!

Vero? Via, VENTI almeno... *guarda male il meme*
