random + stone temple pilots for wandersfound  
1. First thing, HAAAI new friends from the lostsquee friending meme! And also the SPN ones that I made in other ways. ;) I hope you will have a good time here! <3

2. Lost speaking, if you're in Lost fandom, the most awesome haldoor is hosting a Lost love meme ♥ which totally made my morning/day/afternoon and is just as awesome as usual, so go play if you haven't already! ♥ And I'm so excited for the luau starting tomorrow. :D [to people not here for Lost: next month will be full of Lost related stuff. Skip it if needed. ;)]

3. I seriously, seriously hope that no one reading this will ever be in a position that implies having to read Heidegger talking about Medieval philosophy. Way to unite my two worse nightmares. Also, that exam will be the death of me but I just need to think that after that it's another two and they're easy. Though damn, I wish I had taken this in the first year.

4. Anyway, on to more cheering things. Uh. That long-ass fic I wrote for spn_j2_bigbang? It... uh. It generated spontaneous art. Which is also freaking gorgeous. I swear when _izu_ linked that to me I stared for a while being like no, I made it up in my head. WHAT. It never happens that people draw something because they like shit I write. It might have totally done my day yesterday. Now I feel like I should make myself an account on DA just to thank them personally because really.

5. That said, I promised wandersfound that I'd upload some Stone Temple Pilots for her so there it is under the cut. Two records and random songs, all on mediafire because it was more convenient for me but I can put them somewhere else if needed.

Records:

a) Core: this is their first and I guess the one which has the most famous stuff. Also the one which is grunge-ier? Even though it was just that one that was grunge-ish, if you ask me. XD Anyway, a couple of examples (I didn't put Plush or Creep just because I figured they're the famous ones XD): Dead And Bloated which is amazing if you ask me, Sex Type Thing and Where The River Goes.

b) N4: this is my favorite of theirs ever. Also it's the one where you can see how exactly versatile they are because they cover pretty much all of their influences. Also it has Atlanta which is a goddamn masterpiece. Have also Down, I Got You and Sour Girl.

Random songs:

- Vaseline: this and the following are all from Purple aka record #2 which is way more easy listening than the first which doesn't mean that isn't amazing. This is great even if live is better. Also, it's famous, so I figured I should pick at least one lol.
- Still Remains: this one has lovely music but the lyrics are just so good. There's a reason I'll never dislike Scott Weiland.
- Interstate Love Song: this is just gorgeous. Just. Gorgeous.
- Pretty Penny: how to vary style inside the same record and do it beautifully, imo.
- Big Empty: this one has sort of stalker-ish lyrics but the whole is just so good imo. Damn, I need to listen to this record now. XD

- Tumble In The Rough: this & following are from record #3 aka Tiny Music. Which is more experimental and has freaking jazz stuff in some songs and it's, well, different but I love it, too. Also please note that Mr. Weiland can sing, comparing this to anything on Core. xD
- Trippin' On A Hole In A Paper Heart: this is a great song altogether but just the title is worth it imo. ;)
- And So I Know: this = proof that in this group they're all technically gifted.

- Days Of The Week: this and following are from #5, aka Shangri-la-dee-da which is probably the one I've listened less because it had good songs but wasn't on par with the first four. Maybe because they were breaking up while recording it. This one is very catchy though.
- Hello, It's Late: from the same record, this one is good too imo. It had another three-four which were definitely good songs (that I can remember at least) but I probably compare it with N4 and it's not a fair comparison. ;)

- Cinnamon: these are all from the last record, or how STP do 60s music with a twist, which is fucking awesome. That said, this is such a lovely tune.
- Hazy Daze: as per before: good lyrics, catchy song, and I like it. ;)
- First Kiss On Mars: this has an awesome title, a lovely music and so really nice lyrics and idk just listening to it makes me happy.
- Maver: I seriously want to gush forever about this. The lyrics are weird but good, the music is FANTASTIC and how they perform it, just... *loves*

Random shit:
- Break On Through: Doors cover. Proof that Scott Weiland does a pretty good Jim Morrison impression.
- Revolution: Beatles cover, just because I can.
- Dancing Days: Zeppelin cover, just because I can.

Even more random shit, or a couple of Scott Weiland solo things:

- Barbarella: now. Scott's first solo record is some of the weirdest stuff I ever got the pleasure to hear. It was a good record though, if you're in the mood for it. But a song that goes by 'and all the tangerines, they taste like jelly beans / it must be boring by now / grab a scale and guess the weight of it all / the pain I've given with my name / I'm a selfish piece of shit' needs to be shared.
- Mockingbird Girl: even if that first solo record of his is bleak, this totally makes me happy. Also, live version because I like it better.
- The Man I Didn't Know: or, a fucking fine piece of singing. The end.

Okay, that's it, lol. Enjoy!

6. Right now, I should be writing that pedagogy thing. Clearly I'm not doing that but I'll try to stop procrastinating after posting this. Whyyy do I even need to take that, whyy. /quits whining

7. Also, Misha Collins will be at jus in bello again next year! :D Guess who is going to get herself an early, early birthday present when they sell photo ops? *cough*

8. Aaand okay, this is probably all for now. Will try to write my pedagogy presentation while trying not to fall asleep over it and thinking it's for my own good. *repeats mantra*

Oh Heidegger; I am so sorry. I've enjoyed a few of his works, admittedly, but that sounds wretched :(

Also: in giving up on avoiding SPN fandom, your massive Big Bang fic is definitely on my list of things to read when I'm done with my massive list of things to write ;)

Good luck on the pedagogy presentation!

Heidegger is the kind of person you enjoy when you he isn't among the stuff you need for an exam which is worthy two, in credits language, I think. ;) It's just that I never had a moment in my life where I actually understood him but eeeh, I guess I'll force myself in the next week. XD

Eee, YAY! SPN fandom is awesome for fic, a bit less for wank, but one tries to avoid it. And thanks, I hope you like it when you manage! ;)

Thanks! Though I'm thinking to let that go for now. I mean, I should hand it by the 8th, I'm at the beginning, I don't care about it and I have a way more important exam on the 12th so I'll probably do it in September during amnesty round if I just decide to give it up.

You're welcome, I hope you like it! :D

I love that the Lost fandom is so full of love. Just reading the comments to any thread makes you smile.

Frak, you made me realise I have to sign up for literal and/or figurative torture - also goes by the name teaching practice - very soon. No, but thanks, actually, because I'd almost forgotten about that already. (*cough* Wonder why?) Good luck with the evil that is pedagogy!

Oh, me too. So much. ♥ It just makes you so happy.

And ha, in the five hours that passed since I posted this I decided I'll probably need to do it in September because I can't take THAT and Heidegger and a double-the-usual-amount-of-credits-worth exam of Aesthetics including Heidegger at the same time. :/ I'll try to see if I can, though. Maybe I'll just quit sleeping. ;)

Thanks! I just hope I don't realize I need to give it up for the moment. :/ And aw, thank you! :D

isn't Lost fandom just the best ever? ♥

Misha huh? well you HAVE to buy a photo OP. HAVE. and I'll leave vicariously through you some more ;)

ff, I was thinking to slit my wrists for money and buy two, figure it out. This time I need to glomp him like there's no tomorrow. ;) ;) Also I passed over the Jared one so I saved money, lolol.

Lost fandom is... ♥ I love it so much.

And it is! :D God, for one who can't draw at all it's just... like, DID IT EVEN HAPPEN? ;)

2. YES YES YES. I'm so ridiculously excited I can't even explain. It's bound to be AMAZING. And yep, the meme is so wonderful and just another reminder why the fandom is so fantastic. *hugs everyone*

4. Wow, that's so amazing about the artwork done for your SPN fic! Clearly that means it must have been fantastic to inspire so much! You should feel very flattered! :D

6. Lol, no matter how many times I see the word "pedagogy" and know it means something different, I always, always giggle like it's something dirty. Apparently I have the brain/maturity of a 10-year-old. ;D
the female ghost of tom joad: ILUjanie_tangerine on July 5th, 2010 07:46 am (UTC)
2. IT SO WILL BE! :D and that meme just made me go teary. Fandom, ilu. *hugs everyone with you*

4. Seriously, WHAT. I just, I feel so flattered that someone did it spontaneously. I didn't have an idea that it'd be this well-received. :D

6. Lucky you, if I hear it I just think about my teacher liking mimetic theory and him saying that having famous people for role models makes children want to take drugs and I want to shoot myself. ;)
