101 Things again

101 Things in 1001 DaysCollapse )
Progress! My life has changed so much since last time I put anything here.


New Stages

So I'm sound designer for New Stages, which basically means that I have to make a glorified mix tape by Monday. Which is cool, cause, I mean, I have pretty good taste in music. Except I just remembered that all my music is on my old computer, which is fried like ice cream. So that's kind of problematic. Also, since I just do sound for pre-show, intermission, and post-show, I'm told it should basically be elevator music: mostly instrumental and innocuous.

I don't do innocuous.

But whatever, at least it's a job. Still, I can't believe I'm involved with theatre again. That ain't a good place to be. I thought I'd escaped it by letting music take over my life, but apparently it really is like the mob.



So I don't really understand that "post concert high" everyone talks about. For me, it's more of a low. Very, very low. I never have any energy left when finished performing, and then I get terribly depressed. In a soul-crushing abyss of emo kind of way. And everyone around me is running around with their energy and their loud voices and their high-pitched instruments and it is frustrating.

I need to stay home tomorrow and brood like a broody person, but that's not going to happen.

I like bass, really I do. I'm thinking of going to school for it, actually, and I think I would be mostly happy with that, if a little achy with my back pain and shoulder pain and knee pain and hand cramps. But most of the time, these days, all I want to do is play bass, so there is no good reason for me to get like this. And yet I do. Every single time.

Sweetened Condensed Worldview

I have realized recently that my worldview/philosophy can be neatly summed up in these four simple rules.

Cut for ramblinessCollapse )


And those are my thoughts on yaoi rules for living!

Book Meme, because I can.

1. Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
2. Turn to page 56.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post that sentence along with these instructions in your LiveJournal.
5. Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

"'Not bad for thirty years old, I suppose."
--A Wild Sheep Chase by Haruki Murakami

Well, that was entertaining.

I may post an excerpt from That Thing I'm Writing. If I do, it'll be flocked, because it's original fiction.


Fic. No, really.

So, remember that thing I said I was writing 38 minutes ago? Here it is. And, no shit, it's one of the worst things I've ever written. Ever.

I was so close to using the following as an epigraph:

One fluid gesture, like stepping back in time.
Trapped in amber, petrified.
And still not satisfied.

Damn Placebo and their catchy melodies. At least they gave me a title, though. Also, I don't care what y'all think, Descartes invented the word molecule in the 17th century, and Dalton was doing his thing at the very beginning of the 19th, so she could very well know about molecules! No, really! Don't judge me!

Title: Airs and Social Graces
Fandom: Pride and Prejudice
Pairing: Elizabeth/Darcy
Rating: PG... I guess?
Wordcount: 463
Disclaimer: AHAHAHA PUBLIC DOMAIN. So there!
Summary: Darcy confesses his True Love (or, you know, desire for marriage) and Elizabeth forgets how to speak English.

their feet scuff the well-kept grass half a beat out of unisonCollapse )

I'm pretty sure it's terrible, but Springstubb doesn't know that. I can't believe I wrote fic for Pride and Prejudice. I also can't believe I wrote het. The last time I did that was... oh, right. Never.

Cross-posted to nowhere, because it's all for English class, guys. Also I still hate this book, which would be kind of Awkward in Austen fandom, I bet.

Literary abandon

I feel like listening to Placebo while writing pseudo-fanfic for Pride and Prejudice is somehow egregiously inappropriate. Damn English class.

Have I mentioned I hate this book? BECAUSE I DO.

Then again, this song is oddly fitting. Aside from the references to modern technology, I mean. "You see through my disguise"? "Airs and social graces"? Yeah, pretty much.

List 101 Update


101 Things in 1001 Days

Great Books Meme

Okay, so I was bored.

Literacy ftw!Collapse )

I also made a list. Of listy goodness. Like I said, so bored.

The Next 10 Things I Want to Read, in No Particular OrderCollapse )

In other news, I'm working on this project for the magazine where I recruit people who blog about early American life and crafts and reenactment and restoring houses and such. And do other things to fix the website, using my internet skills. I am the younger generation. Unfortunately, I don't know anyone who blogs about these things. Alas.

Also, I'm thinking of posting original fiction on LJ, but I don't know. Maybe not. Maybe I'll start writing fanfic again, because Supernatural gives me bunnies. Although that fandom kind of scares me.

And by kind of, I mean wow, a lot.
