Just checking in! By this time next month I'll have moved to another continent. Shit is gonna get real in the next few weeks, so behold this ~~~last post before life change~~~

nothing to see here. )

I haven’t posted in so long that I’m sure some of you have assumed I’ve died. Indeed this is about what has happened. Death by final papers. Ah, academia. But in happier news I am on the homestretch, ergo post.

i.  Eleonore and I are making way on an evil plot to induct Lizzie into the SHINee world. Thus, we have carefully compiled an evil intro playlist* designed to wreak havoc and appease the dark lord &c. &c. (Note to certain flisters: Don’t even think about arguing over song choices yo, y’all know “Dazzling Girl” is secretly their best song.) fyi I've used music videos where applicable on account of the fact that SHINee has some truly terriblemazing MVs that frankly must be seen for oneself. The "best" is probably the one for "Lucifer" (the first one). The more you see it the less sense it makes. Why does it play like a musical car commercial. WTH are those wispy patronus things about? Are they supposed to represent the devil possessing them (to dance complicatedly in front of a bunch of shiny cars)? We may never know. But everyone looks bangin' so who cares?

I'd also advise watching their lives because melodramatic yet technically sound belting + choreo porn ("how do they breathe" -- that too we may never know). Please follow the links and cry.

*not including the latest album as that has already been linked accordingly and produced excellent results mainly thanks to Lee Taemin’s propensity to whore around shirtless in a tacky black fur coat, Satan bless that disturbed child

ii. I have been watching The Heirs.LOVE IS THE MOMENT /cue )

iii. I want to belatedly do that Halloween Trick or Treat meme but I worry about time/responsibilities. So, I guess, comment on this post with "TRICK OR TREAT" and I will probably link you something cool but maybe with a bit of delay because the real life? Alternately, depending on who you are, I may give you a trick instead. :D

P.S. Dear Kelsey: I can't believe you sent me a Namu-shaped fridge magnet. (Btw, lol that these even exist.) I will never be able to put it up for fear of other people in the house asking if it's "one of those Korean dudes that I like who look like girls". We will not talk about the contents of your letter. NOPE.

Notes: This is for [livejournal.com profile] upupa_epops' Elena Gilbert centric fic Help, I'm Alive (the title of which is also the first track on the mix because that's the way we roll). Without getting into spoilery territory, the premise of her fic is essentially that life sucks and then you die and then it keeps sucking, and thus I have made efforts to offer a suitable soundtrack. Go read, worship, and listen to the following if you so desire (follow the link to dl!).

01. Metric - Help I'm Alive (Styte Dubstep Remix)

If we're still alive
My regrets are few
If my life is mine
What shouldn't I do?

02. Band of Skulls - Blood

I want it to be over
Turn the boat around and bring that girl in
I stumble through the error
Hope deferred makes the heart sick, sick, sick

I know you're bleeding, baby
But you're not bleeding blood

03. Kim Ferron - Nothing But You

And I've got plenty of time
Time to figure it out
Time to think about you and me
Whatever that was all about
Got nothing to prove
Got nothing to say
No, I'm guessing I never thought you
were good for me anyway

04. Aimee Mann - This Is How It Goes

So I try to hold on
While you try to let go
You won't tell me it's gone
But baby, I'll know
Baby, I'll know

05. Angie Hart - Blue

High tide
The air is dew
And where were you?

While I
I died
And where were you?

06. Daniel Ahearn - I Will Let You Go

Put your hands in the water
watch them go under
Put your hand to the light
watch the light come through
And I will let you go

Put your time on the table
See who'll sit down with you
Give your love to the ones who offer you bruise
After bruise, after bruise
And I will let you go

07. Panda Su - Eric Is Dead

when i am older, i will change back to the way
i once was when we first set our eyes on it

nothing's left, no turning back, i've already told you that
count your knees and i'll count mine, we'll settle them in time

08. SaintSaviour - Woman Scorned

And time was we were synchronised
And I felt all those ties dissolve in the winter
Now I must begin again
To be frozen

09. Blonde Redhead - Here Sometimes

A little girl upon the fireplace
Only air flying emotionless
Ring the bells for she could keep flying
This is me, completely me

End of day, we watched the sun go down
I can see you're like a firework
You want to save me, people will save me
But this is you, completely you

10. The Cardigans - My Favourite Game

And this is not a case of lust, you see
it's not a matter of you versus me
It's fine the way you want me on your own
but in the end it's always me alone

11. Interpol - Rest My Chemistry

I haven't slept for two days
I've bathed in nothing but sweat
And I've made hallways
Scenes for things to regret
My friends they come
And the lines they go by

12. TV on the Radio - I Was A Lover

I'm locked in my bedroom, so send back the clowns
My clone wears a brown shirt, and I seduce him when there's no one around
Mano why mano, on a bed of nails
Bring it on like a storm, till I knock the wind out of his sails
And we don't make eye contact, when we have run-ins in town
Just a barely polite nod, and nervous stares towards the ground

13. Florence & The Machine - Breaking Down

All alone on the edge of sleep
My old familiar friend
Comes and lies down next to me
And I can see it coming from the edge of the room
Smiling in the streetlight even with my eyes shut tight
I still see it coming now

14. Aimee Mann - You Could Make A Killing

There is nothing that competes with habit
And I know it's neither deep nor tragic
It's simply that you have to have it

So you can make a killing
Oh you can make a killing

I wish I was both young and stupid
Then I too could have the fun that you did
Till it was time to pony up what you bid

15. Bon Iver - Blindsided

Taut line, down to the shoreline
The end of a blood line, the moon is a cold light

There's a pull to the flow
My feet melt the snow
For the irony, I'd rather know
'Cause blinded, I was blindsided

16. Declan Flynn - Ease My Pain

Out of time, I hear your voice
Break through the noise
And pain, my heart’s refrain

Why can’t I convince myself
That this is the right time
To contend

17. Ellie Goulding - Salt Skin

You're as sharp as a knife and you fit like a glove
That is no way to live, that is no way to love
Full of fear in your skin and the weakness in giving in
Stabbed in the back but you feel no pain
Push the heaviest doors that you can't open
Yeah, they tied me up and my body lies still, again

18. The Naked and Famous - Girls Like You

How would you cope if the world decided to
Make you suffer for all that you were?
How could you dance if no-one was watching
And you couldn't even care if they were?
What would you do if you couldn't even feel?
Not even pitiful pain
How would you deal with the indecisions
Eating away at the days?

Don't you know people write songs about girls like you?
About girls like you

this post is mostly for Emmie and Doris tbh

people. friends of mine. let me inform you as to the new ruination of my existence.

for months now i've been watching the likes of Jamie, Lauren, Kelsey, Lizzie, and Eleonore frolicking in kpop land, and yet managed to avoid being afflicted myself... until a few days ago, when Eleonore bombarded me with links designed to corrupt my soul. and i regret to say she was successful in that venture. forgive me friends for i am weak.

for the uninformed, Infinite is, uh, a FAIRLY popular Korean pop boy band with a shitload of synchronized choreography and a fandom that seems to be invading the entire planet. given my not-even-a-secret lifelong penchant for boy bands it's a wonder i only tapped into this now, but no matter.

first off i have to say that Korean pop music is far superior to the Western sort. i actually have an epic love/hate relationship with pop music -- the "hate" deriving from the fact that the Western pop industry is so damn lazy -- but after just a few days going through Infinite's discography (+ a couple other bands) i feel as though i have been revived from a 10+year fatigue. FRIENDS, I DO NOT KNOW WHAT MY EMOTIONS ARE DOING.

i'll admit, my life right now mostly revolves around the question: "how is Nam Woohyun a real person????" (for various reasons, such as the cray-cray of the fandom and the inexplicable prettiness of all the dudes, i assumed that the band itself didn't actually possess any talent. i stand corrected.) i'll just be here creepily replaying 1:55-2:05 of this song because his vibrato/pitch/everything is the stuff my ovaries every vocal coach's dreams are made of. (i am not a vocal coach.) (but i would assume they all dream of Nam Woohyun.)

and by all means let us gather round and discuss how i instantly fixate on "The Greasy One", a.k.a. The One Infamous For Parading Round Open-Shirted Onstage I NEVER CLAIMED NOT TO BE EMBARRASSINGLY PREDICTABLE KBYE.

um. anyway, i like all the members, promise. and this is really supposed to be an introductory/rec post thing to lure more unfortunate souls in. if anyone is really curious/interested, this vid is probably the best in terms of O.O CHOREO + MY LOINS + "give me all their outfits", &c. &c. and it made #1 on some yearly Korean billboard thing so. if this is your jam then by all means come join me and the above people in hell.

@ J/L/K/E: i give you permission to spam me with rude things in comments. do your worst, children.
ever_neutral: ([comm] best bar)
Remember that time (... a couple days ago) where I was like "I am never doing memes again" and then everyone was like "LOL"?


This is 899999% at [livejournal.com profile] upupa_epops' goading:

  1. Give me a fandom/pairing and I will make you a mini fanmix of between 3-6 songs! 

FOLLOWING THIS, I am never doing another meme again. (Bookmark this post.)

throw your soul (front)

LOL BEFORE MEDIAFIRE IS TAKEN AWAY FROM US~. As requested by [livejournal.com profile] superkappa -- OTP, basically, insofar as the only acceptable "endgame" on this show is for these two maniacal kids to compel a priest to take their unholy vows. 

I have tried to cover both characters' viewpoints, which amounts to: 1) appropriately tortured songs about the agony of love to which Damon might melodramatically throw shot glasses into his fireplace, and 2) necessarily cynical anti-love songs to which Kat might stab pins into blue-eyed voodoo dolls. :) I dearly hope I have done these assholes something close to justice. #how do you perfection?

(p.s. what even is this art? don't ask, pls.)

it's not the chase you love | it's him following you )

This is specifically for [livejournal.com profile] upupa_epops who is a fanmix noob and asked for a Salvatore bros fanmix to the prompt "a good man goes to war". Thus, I have compiled a mix I hope communicates themes of ~abandonment, ~innocence lost, and the violence within~~~ Business as usual, basically. These boys are always at war, one way or another. THEIR LOVE IS A BATTLEFIELD. Nothing special about this one, folks.

FYI, you should all probably just skip this and go check out [livejournal.com profile] akzseinga's far superior Salvatore mix instead. Oh, and [livejournal.com profile] aerintine's Brothers mixes which make my existence obsolete.
