THE OBJECT TO YOUR LEFT IS NOW YOUR WEAPON OF CHOICE IN THE UPCOMING ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE. WHAT IS IT?




It is this little knife with the tiniest blade ever that I use for cutting paper! However, what the zombies don't know is that according to the package it came in, this knife contains chemicals known in the state of California to cause cancer. FUCK YEAH, CANCER KNIFE?!

Also it swivels so it can like, cut round corners and shit. Bring it on, zombies!

DAY NINE: a song by your favourite artist


Imogen Heap wins as my favourite by being so unbelievably fun and friendly and always interacting with her fans as much as possible. also she doesn't seem to think that performing in Canada is "hard to justify financially". :P she needs to come back to Toronto sometime though, ffffff.

anyway so here is a song about the moment your life as you know it crumbles around you.

...

check out A Matter of Taste by Fulvio Bonavia (also Scent of Flower which is a similar concept)



I want it, and also I want to eat it.

EDIT: I love the internet

DAY SEVEN: a song to which you can dance


FACT: I can and will dance to anything. something like this does make it easier though.

I love tribal fusion stuff and it's kind of silly because it's pure musical exoticism, but I like drums and I like trip-hop and I like belly dance so it's difficult to resist. ;3;
doctorconquest: (chisu - sama mieli sama sydän)
skipping the proper next day of this song thing because the events I associate with songs are either so trivial I don't want to write about them or so traumatic I don't want to write about them. 8Db so.

DAY SIX: a song to which you know all the words



I know the lyrics of nearly every English language song to which I ever listen because I guess I have nothing better to store in my brain, so here's one that took a bit more effort.

the music video makes the song seem rather intimidating, kind of like "we will fucking survive or I will tear this man's head off". also, close-ups of people making out: probably not as attractive as the director thinks?

DAY FIVE: a song that reminds you of somewhere

this song



reminds me of this place



the parking lot entrance of old South Grenville. this is where I would sit to wait for someone to come get me when I couldn't make it through the day which by the end of the first semester of grade 12 was almost every day so I just gave up going at all. anyway I listened to this song a lot to cheer up/calm down. Milla Jovovich is a pretty talented lady.

I was a bit confused for a moment over all the articles about minors not receiving life sentences that were popping up on the various activism sites I frequent--not one of them specified in which country this was happening. of course it is the US but seriously these are websites with global visitors, not everyone who reads English lives in fucking America. Canada already doesn't give life sentences to minors even for murder so I was very "wait what?" when I saw the headlines, haha.

edit: and I renewed my paid account because I cannot live without endless tags and userpics. ;;; the only thing that stopped it from going through automatically was the billing address, which has changed because WE MOVED DUH. an we're moving again in two weeks. I JUST LEARNED THIS PHONE NUMBER, DAMMIT. )':
doctorconquest: (hofl - late afternoon)
DAY FOUR: a song that reminds you of someone



I feel a bit weird when I listen to this song...about a year ago I was listening to this album and I thought, hey! this song reminds me of Shannon, so I tried to figure out a way to tell someone that a sappy sad song made me think of them without actually being that strange, and I decided to give her a copy of the album while offhandedly mentioning that she should listen to this song. only when I did give it to her it was the very end of the day and she was in a bad mood and I was in a bad mood and I was so relieved when she told me she liked Sarah Slean that I sort of just fled the scene without saying anything in particular, haha. and then I was waiting for her to do some sort of "my soundtrack" meme so I could be like "LISTEN TO THIS SAPPY SONG OKAY" but she didn't. OH WELL.

...

spent a little while (and I had to look at a calendar to check how long because I have no concept of passing time) in Toronto at the residence of [livejournal.com profile] flumpitt & [livejournal.com profile] cupofearlgrey & Jeff-who-is-not-on-LJ, and that was cool. saw Matthew Barber which was great, and saw that new Robin Hood movie which was TERRIBLE. so terrible. like, not even the silly bad kind of terrible but the boring painful kind of terrible where half-way through I had to start listening to music so I didn't go insane from the massive shittiness of that movie. ugh.

anyway, their cats are much more interesting to look at than my cats

DAY THREE: a song that makes you sad



currently in the process of making a rather large doll out of polymer clay (& other things). half-finished hand:



this is my first time working with polymer clay and my first time making a humanoid figure out of any clay so it is kind of like ??? but it's very fun and it will look impressive in the end.

sing away

this meme seems to be all about songs so I think I can actually commit to it since posting songs at random is pretty much all I do here anyway.

DAY ONE: your favourite song



I already posted my ultimate favourite song a while ago but here's another one of my favourites! how many songs do you hear that portray the sexual experiences of a young woman in such a positive way? I am guessing: not a lot.

...

I love/hate the names for groups of birds. they are hilariously stupid. a group of waxwings is called an "earfull of waxwings" (EW) or a "museum of waxwings" (BOO). I think terns are the best though: a group of terns is a "U of terns". GET IT? GET IT? U terns? U-TURN? OH THOSE CLEVER ORNITHOLOGISTS.

some of them are quite modern (usually the least creative ones) but I'm willing to bet that most of these terms were thought up by the Victorians. everything that is silly and pointless was thought up by the Victorians.
