erraticonstilts: (mindless self indulgence)
i am done with college! well, i don't graduate till saturday, but monday was my last exam and i turned in my essay (that one damn essay that i've been complaining about like, all semester) yesterday, so no more work! it hasn't sunk in yet. i don't think it will sink in till august when i don't have to go back to school, heh. i picked my cousin up from the airport tonight. she's never been here before, so i'm going to show her around and stuff. i think we're going to the beach tomorrow. the rest of my family gets here on friday, and then saturday is graduation, and i think i'm spending a few more days in florida before i drive to nashville (with my sister, so i won't be alone), so i probably won't be around much for the next week. just so you know.

last night i saw mindless self indulgence in concert! )

wow, i should really get to bed, since we're getting up at 10am to go to the beach.
erraticonstilts: (mcr - old school shenanigans)
tomorrow i see mcr in concert!! i've been freaking out about it at random times all week, mostly internally. my flight's at 8am, meaning i have to leave at 5am to get to the airport an hour before my flight. i'm going to be so tired but i don't care! plus it means burger king for breakfast (i only let myself get bk for breakfast when i'm flying out in the morning. self-control woo! :P). i won't be back till saturday, so goodbye till then!

idk why it took me so long to start listening to the hush sound. i've had their first album downloaded for months but only got around to listening to it on monday. i really like them! and now i'm excited about seeing them with patd next week.

ahhh, i'm leaving in five hours and i haven't yet finished the essay i said i'd finish before i left. eh, i'm okay with it.
erraticonstilts: (gerard way - the sharpest lives)
i finally finished that damn essay! it involved getting ~4 hours of sleep and waking up at 7am and a lot of caffeine and getting no nap D:, but it's done. of course, i'll probably have to do something similar tonight for my senior research outline. OH THE JOYS OF PROCRASTINATION.

so i went to pre-order the cobra starship tickets like, 15 minutes after the sale had started (which was the earliest i was able to), and the orlando show was already sold out! i got regular tickets saturday morning, but i wanted that poster, dammit. and not to have to pay the crazy ticketmaster fees. oh well, at least i'm going :D

my limited edition black parade cd set arrived on friday. it's pretty freaking amazing. i've only read a small part of the booklet, but i love it already. it's really interesting to see the state of mind they were in/what was going on while they were creating the album and the reasons behind the songs. if you're a fan of mcr i definitely recommend buying it.

on the i brought you my bullets cd it says, "unauthorized duplication is a violation of applicable laws and will result in gerard coming to your house and sucking your blood." ahaha, how are they so awesome? ♥

one of my favorite parts about mcr's attic demos is how young and raw gerard's voice sounds. i also like how noticeable frank's contribution is on "early sunsets". it just, it doesn't sound complete without his part, you know? (i realize ray says something to this extent in lotms, but it's true and bears repeating). it makes me smile to think about it :)

okay, i should probably do my work.

p.s. join [livejournal.com profile] mcr_pic_spam, it's awesome.
erraticonstilts: (fall out boy - priorities)
so i'm watching bend it like beckham when all of a sudden - jonathan rhys-meyers, what are you doing on my tv screen? and dancing, no less. that is reason enough for this movie to win.

my history of electronic music class sucks ass. i know what you're thinking - a class about music, what's not to like, right? WRONG. it is the most pointless class i've ever taken, and that's saying something. i feel like i haven't learned anything. i hate it like burning. the hate, it is burning!

anyway. desktop meme: )

six days till fall out boy! i'm ridiculously excited omg. twice in three days! it's going to be amazing.

and now for fun, a random bandom picspam. this way )

and that's it. now i really must do hw omg.
erraticonstilts: (david bowie)
last night i saw interpol in concert, and it was amazing. i think i might like the way they sound live better than on cd, idk. it was general admission, so i was able to get really close. also, HOT, i didn't realize. it was their entire appearance: the way they looked on stage (and like, guys playing the guitar is already hot, but there was something about the lead singer (paul) and guitarist (daniel) that made me unable to look away), their clothes, their hair, their instruments, the way they moved. they really seemed to enjoy being onstage and playing their songs, and i love that. and paul and daniel would do this thing where they'd get really close and face each other while playing the guitar, and smile at each other, and throughout the show paul kept looking over and smiling at daniel, and i kind of died a little omg ♥ i want to see them again like, right now. also the bass player started smoking in the middle of the show, and i'm not gonna lie, it was pretty hot.

this band called the liars opened for them, and they were incredibly odd. the lead singer didn't so much sing as moan, and he looked as if he were attempting to blow the microphone, which was amusing. he danced too, and being a tall, lanky guy it was pretty funny (purposely, i think). overall pretty entertaining, but they're not why i was there.

cut for excessive rambling )

you know what's gross? people who let their dogs lick their face. more specifically, their mouth. that's disgusting. you know what's annoying? the girl in my spanish class that starts out every thought with "yo pienso que." i know it's what you think, you don't need to say so every time you speak! and she talks a lot, and so slow and in circles because she's not very good at espaƱol, and it drives me crazy.

i watched velvet goldmine for the first time this weekend, and i loved it. it's all about style and excess, and a bit campy, like glam rock. if nothing else, watch it to see ewan mcgregor on stage, shirtless and wearing guyliner and really tight pants. GUH, the man is beautiful. there's also jonathan rhys meyers (who looks really good in makeup), and christian bale (who doesn't so much, but looks awesome in "present day" in the movie). yes do it. also, ryan ross has totally seen this movie, you know he has.

btw, does anyone happen to have the soundtrack? i asked on a certain community, and the only response i got was "my gf will only upload it if you upload" some fucking rick springfield album. like, wtf?

happy birthday (belated and otherwise) to [livejournal.com profile] callie89, [livejournal.com profile] ayesakara, and [livejournal.com profile] makesomelove!
i hope you all had a terrific day! :D

i am all done with exams, woo! i was supposed to have my linguistics one tomorrow, but our professor told us on the last day of class (last tuesday) that the final was optional, only to improve your grade. since i have an a, i'm not taking it. my mom's not coming till friday, so i have a few days with absolutely nothing to do. i've been watching a lot of qaf, and it's been fabulous.

i finally finished the ms paint meme. here are the pics )

that's it. um, i hope it was worth the wait, haha.
erraticonstilts: (brian/justin - like the first time)
kind of late, but happy birthday, summerinabaddonlaura! i hope you had a great day :D

i was listening to qaf music last night, and i noticed something strange about the lyrics of "i wanna mmm." here's a sample: "well i was walkin' down the street, chillin', as you do. / when who should come up / behind me but, donald duck. / well hey, it had to be the way. and he had a few words to say to me, / and they were / i, i wanna mmm mmm, i..." kind of really strange.

speaking of strange, look at the bio for actor noah segan from "brick" (which, incidentally, i watched thursday night and is pretty amazing, especially if you're one for modern day film noir). here's part of it: The latter took him, entirely against his will to L.A., where he now resides grumpily but satisfied sexually. and Noah's favorite actor is Warren Oates, who died, as Noah expects to do one day as well. Love and cherish him for this one reason. what the hell? those are odd things to write in someone's bio.

also, wishlist! i don't feel like looking for the rules, so my wishlist )

while working on my spanish take home exam last night/this morning, i was listening to a lot of qaf music and it got me thinking. i've always thought whoever it was did a really fantastic job in choosing the music for each scene. that's one thing i've never complained about. there are some scenes where the song is especially spot on, and i thought i'd list the ones that are the most "wow, this song is perfect for this scene!" to me.

liiist )

and that's it. feel free to share your opinions. i like to know these things!
erraticonstilts: (Default)
i watched parts of qaf 301-304 last night, and 305-308 tonight. god, i love 308. more than any other episode. um, is it bad that i know all the lines in all the b/j scenes? and that i recite them as i'm watching? and that they're written down in the journal where i write all my favorite qaf lines and scenes and whatever else? probably makes me kind of pathetic like mikey, but what-the-fuck-ever. i love love love it. *loves*

brian looks really fucking hot in s3. his hair is perfect, especially in 301-303. the way it falls in his eyes, and is sort of shaggy, and yeah. perfect. and 302, at the underwear party? kills me with the hotness. brian should always walk around in nothing but black underwear. observe )

last night i went to see 'the covenant.' omg, you need to see it. it's badly written and badly acted, but the guys are really hot. really hot. and they're swimmers, and they walk around in their tiny speedos adhkldsjdk our running commentary made it so worthwhile.

i was going to work on my take home test today, but instead did absolutely nothing productive. half of my day was spent laying on my bed, staring at but not really watching tv. that was preferable to doing homework. and i couldn't muster up any sort of motivation. so tomorrow should be fun :P

i changed the comment text on my entries. now it's more gale-appropriate ;)

wow it's 4:30am. i should go to bed.
erraticonstilts: (athf - that ain't no damn bunny)
3:30am - (almost) two articles down, one to go. omg, this is taking forever. mostly because i allow myself to get distracted.

like by this: llama song watch this, it's almost the best thing ever. you won't regret it (maybe). look at me spamming.

did you ever assign genders to letters of the alphabet? i did. a=f b-d=m e=f g-j=m k, l=f m-p=m q=f r=m s=f t=m u=f v=m w-y=m z=f
i dare you to differ!

i've drank almost a liter of diet coke. not really tired anymore!

...i should probably finish reading.
erraticonstilts: (brian/michael)
if you're in the mood for a really good, sort of b/j but much more than that but also kind of depressing fic, i suggest you read this (heh, sounds appealing, doesn't it? :P but really. read it). it made me think, you know. hell, i'm still thinking about it now. but don't read it now if you're feeling particularly positive about qaf at the moment. i was. it's like, i go through cycles. sometimes i feel really good about b/j and qaf in general. i believe brian really does love justin and justin is happy, for real happy and not just settling and accepting the 'romance is bullshit' idea, and they do see each other even though justin is in ny, and it all works out. not in marriage and ideal happily ever afters, but in a way that works for them. but then i get pessimistic, and think that maybe justin wasn't entirely happy a.i. (after ian) and still wanted the things brian wouldn't give him, and that even though brian supposedly changed he doesn't intend to keep in contact with justin after he goes to ny, and they grow apart and don't end up together. and maybe i take this all a bit too seriously, but i don't give a shit. i like taking it seriously. makes life more interesting.

but if you're looking for postive b/j angst (like, angst but with relief and good things and such by the end), read this. it's long and angsty and fantastic and memorable post-s5, and i loved it.

i uploaded this new icon because it seemed appropriate and i do like brian/michael. just not romantically.

it's almost 11pm, and i haven't started my homework. i told myself it wouldn't be this way this year, but it is. and i can't seem to make myself care.

this post is heading dangerously toward emo-esque territory, so i'm stopping now.

EDIT: interest collage )
erraticonstilts: (Default)
back at school again. classes start tomorrow. two every day, two hours each. shouldn't be too bad, hopefully.

anyway. not much else to say, besides picspam! the pilot, and a few from 103 that i forgot to post when i posted before from that episode. mmm, sexy )
