'Do we look like a store that sells "I Just Called to Say I Love You"? Go to the mall!'  
No, I'm not quoting High Fidelity because I've re-read it. ;) anyway, random post as usual.

1. Well, it's just that a record store near here which wasn't exactly the place where you find stuff but which brought you anything if you ordered it (and seriously, they got me some stuff from South Korea or something once) and whose owner was a really nice guy and where I kind of spent one year and a half because of said ordering records business is closing down. I found out this morning and it kind of made me want to headdesk because practically every place I go for used/rare records is closing/has closed in the last two years. Sucks. Now I don't even know if I want to go there on Monday or something because he's selling everything on sale. I hate sales at record shops when they close. *sigh*

2. To cheer me up, meme from wandersfound. Since I said I was game.. ;)

The first six people to everyone that responds to this post will get something made by me. It will be about or tailored to those six who respond first who responded. (don't mind this, I probably could do more than six. Just go ahead if you wish.)

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make.
- What I create will be just for you.
- It'll be done this year.
- You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a mix tape. It may be fic, or a poem. I may draw or paint something. I might bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!
- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange (you really should be worried at this point).

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you have to put this in your journal as well, if you expect me to do something for you! -> just if you want. ;)

3. I think my Jack/Sawyer muse decided to work again. Well, I have an idea on how to ditch the plot part of that series I'm stuck on and just go another route. I'll see soon-ish.

4. Goodwin is on the most popular Italian crosswords magazine! Premise: there's this weekly magazine called something like Puzzles Week even if I don't exactly like the translation which is full of rebuses, crosswords, blank crosswords and stuff like that and on the cover they have an easy crossword and a celebrity's picture which changes every week. They had Matthew Fox, Josh Holloway and Evangeline Lilly before, but this week there was the guy playing Goodwin! Or Riggins senior, how you prefer. Which is kind of hilarious because seriously, doing a crossword while staring at the guy's face? Weird. And I'd like to know how can they think someone would recognize him since Lost's ratings have to be pretty low since no one I know watches it and they air it in the summer and Friday Night Lights is barely on cable.

5. Lost in three days! Seriously, I can't believe it's over. The hiatus was so long that now that it's almost there I can't quite get it. And re Lost, the fic battle at lostsquee is being seriously awesome. And tonight I'm definitely coming up with the way to write tentacle sex. -nods-

6. So Bruce Springsteen's new record leaked and I listened to it already. The song-by-song review is coming as soon as I can do it also for John Frusciante's new one. And uhm, guess all for now.

1. That sucks. I feel for you.
2. You don't have to make something for me. I mean, I'm probably too new here (and I won't put this meme in my journal, especially since I don't 'know' lots of people here yet). I just felt like commenting on your entry.
3. A Jack/Sawyer series? *makes a mental note to read that*
4. That's pretty weird.
5. LOST! OMFG! *dies* And the fic battle is awesome indeed. And I think I'm gonna try to write something, too. We'll see.
6. Bruce Springsteen = ♥
the female ghost of tom joad: bruce springsteen -> best thing ever exijanie_tangerine on January 18th, 2009 11:11 pm (UTC)
1. *sigh* Thanks. And I just feel sorry for the guy, too. He and his (I think gay but I never knew) friend were totally awesome. To think that I wanted to order something there again...

2. Why, no one is too new! ♥ And you don't have to put it, I'll see what happens but I think I can come up with something just fine.

3. Yep, if you have a look at the fic list linked up there I have the first two parts listed on the bottom. I don't know when I'll manage to take it up again but I hope shortly, especially since my Jack/Sawyer muse is very fickle.

4. I just don't know why the regular person who buys that magazine would know who he is. Oh well, I might be missing something.

5. OMFG INDEED! And oh, do write something! ;)

6. TOTALLY. And the new record is awesome God, I love Bruce.

1. Now I feel sorry for them too and I don't even know them. But this kind of thing always sucks. *sigh*
2. Well then, if you're okay with it, I won't complain. ;) And thanks. *hugs*
3. Noticed! Will read it as soon as possible! :)

Yay! I wanted someone to write the tentacle sex prompt! Why? Because I am a freak, that's why. WANT!!

Me, I am writing something you will like. ;)

Also, almost all the prompts make me think of either depressing, twisted or fucked up ideas. I must be in a weird headspace!

Aww, I hate it when cool, independent record stores or book stores close. I sympathize.

I've seen it! As soon as I'm done answering here I'm SO reading that *can't wait* And I think I have an idea for the tentacle sex. Now that I decided I need to go through with it.

I thought about depressing/twisted stuff with all the Des/Sayid prompts which I hadn't suggested though, guess we're two?

Thanks. And yeah, independent record stores shouldn't close. *sigh* I'll miss it.

You're signed then!

Yep, Goodwin! When I saw him I was like WTF? I can't believe that someone here would recognize him or than anyone working at that magazine would know who he is but still. *shrugs*

Meme it is!

Oh, it is epic. Well, okay, it's not Born To Run, but still, pretty damn freaking GREAT. I love it. And I love him. And I guess it's no news. ;)

Yay for Goodwin for getting some crossword action!

I'm sorry your favourite store is closing down. I hope the guy is retiring and it's not the economy. Maybe you will find a treasure in his closing sale.

Which Jack/Sawyer story is this? The Shakespeare prompts or I'll be everywhere?

I'll have to pop over to Lostsquee soon. I can't right now because I don't want to get distracted because I finally got my Richard muse working.

P.S. If anyone would be involved in tentacle sex, if would be Richard! When you're immortal you can try anything once! And hgod, who knows what weird stuff was growing at The Orchid!
the female ghost of tom joad: lost jack/sawyerjanie_tangerine on January 19th, 2009 09:02 am (UTC)
Goodwin is getting that!

Mh, I doubt it is because he was barely fifty. But I don't think it's the economy either, a lot of independent shops closed in the last two or three years.

The movies quotes. Re everywhere, I'm almost done with the editing and I think I'll be sending you the next bunch shortly. Editing is not as bad as that other one. ;)

Oh, yay for the Richard muse working!! Can't wait to read it. ;) And when you pop there I think that at least a couple of your prompts were taken.

LOL, indeed!!! Sadly it's Jack, Sawyer and Charlie so I'll have to manage another way but Richard totally would!!
elliotsmelliot: Charlie Sawyer storytimeelliotsmelliot on January 19th, 2009 02:40 pm (UTC)
Yay for more Jack/Sawyer in any universe.

I hope to drop by the fic battle and squee soon!

Jack, Sawyer and Charlie????? Oh my! Lucky tentacles!

I just have to say this:


I shall go and look at my signed copies of John's solo cd's and wait to read your review..which also means that I'm desperately behind in mine and more...I'll probably have a dream about him tonight because of that guilt..not that I mind that at all. :)
the female ghost of tom joad: rhcp fru->psychedelic sex funkjanie_tangerine on January 19th, 2009 09:03 am (UTC)
JOHN INDEED! ;) I want to actually BUY the record but since I don't know when it'll be on sale here I just d/led it. It's not like I didn't buy all the others anyway so he won't mind. ;) And you've got signed copies!!! *iz envious*
Janicejaydblu on January 19th, 2009 01:38 am (UTC)
Late to the party, but responding. I can't wait to see what you have to write re: Jack/Sawyer. And LOST IN 3 DAYS OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG!
I can't wait, I think.
the female ghost of tom joad: tangerinesjanie_tangerine on January 19th, 2009 09:04 am (UTC)
Not late! ;)

The Jack/Sawyer stuff is coming. I mean, I need to post more of the nano novel and then I have that series going on. *sigh* Why the hell can't I write one shots for that pairing? ;)

Janicejaydblu on January 19th, 2009 02:52 pm (UTC)
Do you mean the series about the Dust Bowl (I think that's what it was). I started reading it, but I ran out of time, then I figured I would catch up when you posted a new chapter, but you haven't yet, that one? Or did you post a new chapter and I missed it (I think there were two or three at the time).
Um , sorry about the run-on sentences.
Why write one-shots for Jack and Sawyer when you can make it nice and involved? That's the kind of boys they are, I think.

Yay Goodwin! (that actor and I share a birthday, so good to see my birthday twin getting some recognition!)

I actually had to Google Riggins to understand that reference, not having ever seen this Friday Night Lights (it's either not shown at all here in the UK, or on some really obscure channel that I don't watch.)

Right, off to check out the prompts (course I also have to find time to write, which is thin on the ground this week).
the female ghost of tom joad: lost -> generaljanie_tangerine on January 19th, 2009 11:40 pm (UTC)
Your birthday twin is getting it indeed!

FNL is a great show. I haven't watched the last season because my favorite character left the show and I didn't want to go through it again but I will eventually. If you catch it have a look because it's really good.

Check indeed!! ;)
