erraticonstilts: (brian/justin - like the first time)
[personal profile] erraticonstilts
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
1. qaf graphics
2. qaf fic (bj, or brian/michael high school, or anything really, as long as brian's in it).
3. snail mail. i love getting things in the mail. if you want my address, i'll email it to you.
4. new music. i'm open to pretty much anything.
5. ms paint picture
6. paid account time
7. anything qaf or gale related

yeah that's all i could think of. i'm not even attempting to send out cards this year, but i want to do what i can to get you guys stuff, so link to your wishlist, if you please.

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.

1. katty b - let's hear it for the boy (103): this could be s1 justin's theme song. it makes me feel very "go justin!" and yay for him having the balls to go after what he wants.
2. touch & go - straight to number one (104): mainly the music. it's such a porno song, i love it.
3. carole pope - high school confidential (120): for obvious reasons, i'm sure.
4. ben e. king & the drifters - save the last dance for me (122): this describes the whole bj relationship remarkably well.
5. skindive - no more good guys (201): the look on brian's face when he gets to the jeep kills me, and this song gets into his pain.
6. sigur rós - svefn-g-englar (202): i don't know so much about the lyrics, but the music is gorgeous and kind of haunting and fits in perfectly with this beautiful scene.
7. magnetic fields - when my boy walks down the street (203): justin's getting better, and literally walking down the sidewalk street, so yeah.
8. gus gus - teenage sensation (215): that could so be justin from brian's pov.
9. sigur rós - njosnavelin (the nothing song) (301): again with the music fitting perfectly with the tone of the scene.
10. gioia bruno - from the inside (307): "i wanna feel you from the inside"? even if that's not meant sexually, it totally can be, and it fits with all the eye fucking happening in this scene.
11. broken social scene - lover's spit (308): um, holy crap perfect qaf song. they couldn't have chosen a better song for this scene.
12. new order - true faith (314): goes very well with the celebrating.
13. stine j - you are my sunshine (507): "please don't take my sunshine away." :(
14. pj harvey and thom yorke - this mess we're in (512): especially perfect when you know what happens in 513.
15. black rebel motorcycle club - love burns (513): the lyrics are scarily accurate (uh, changing 'she' to 'he,' of course) as to what i believe brian was feeling/thinking in that scene.
16. doves - ambition (513): used in the final version of this scene. i think the music/tone of this song fits better with the mood of the scene, but the other's lyrics fit better.
17. heather small - proud (513): mainly because it was used in 101. it brings the series full circle.

and that's it. feel free to share your opinions. i like to know these things!

so I just finished the homework I had to do for today... well, that's not true, but who cares? The point is: it's a joy to check my FL and find a post of yours. *nods*

behind me but, donald duck.
wtf. that doesn't make sense lol.

it's weird that, if had made a wishlist, it'd similar to yours. i can offer a new layout, if you want. :) now that i think about it, i'm free tonight, so yeah, just let me know.

talking about spanish thingies of doom, i'll check your last essay after commenting here. and if you want me to check the one that you're currently working on, you know my email. ;)

i love qaf music; actually, i was in the mood a few hours ago, and i listened to the soundtracks just because. i was shocked when i heard "you are my sunshine", even if it's not a sad/nostalgic song, i wanted to cry when i heard it, brian and justin encounter, and then "you'll never know, dear, how much i love you", i was like OMG OMG. :P oh, oh, and "ambition", god, that was meta-perfect.

aw, thank you so much! you know the feeling is mutual ♥ i'm glad you got at least some work done.

yeah, it's really strange, ha.

then we both have good taste ;) hmm, i'm actually really happy with my current layout (that you set up for me *loves like whoa*), so i don't think i want a new one now. but thank you so much for offering! if i ever do want a new layout, and you have free time and are still offering, i might have to take you up on that ;) (i kind of feel bad turning down a free layout :/ but you know i love your graphics, i just love this layout too much to switch right now).

thank you so much for checking my essay! you're always very helpful. i've saved all the emails you've sent me. i'm done with all my essays for this semester (the last thing was the exam which we had to hand in). but there's always next semester :P

qaf music kicks ass. "you are my sunshine" is usually a happy song, but i'll never think of it that way again. i cried when they played it in 507 :( omg you'll never know. justin, you must know! "ambition" kills me. the lyrics make me sad, but it is perfect. meta-perfect, meta-sad, and i think gale and randy threw some of their real emotions into the scene.

hey, your icon matches your new layout! love it :D

hey, what about a new header? would that be okay? i'll give you some pics just in case: brianxmikey ( bj ( gale ( (you don't have to use this one if it doesn't fit or whatever)
um, if you don't think those will look good together, tell me. i'm never sure if they will or not.

i actually really like it. the black and white on one side (i've been really into b & w lately), and the gale pic with the writing on the other (what's that from, btw). i'm going to upload it and see what it looks like. thank you very much!

and the gale pic with the writing on the other (what's that from, btw)

That's that picture from the NY Q&A thingy... I have no idea what it's called, but Randy is actually next to Gale in that pic, and that's why he's looking to the side.

Anyway, I'm so late commenting on this entry, but i LOVE the subject of it. It's totally true, and I never thought of it that way.

I really want to see brick, I heard it was just way way amazing from every person I know that has seen it.

Anyway, I'll have to check the links of the songs to see if they're still active and download a couple because it's been far too long since I've listened to a variety of QAF music.

ah, i was actually talking about the text. but thanks anyway! i love that pic, how everyone's facing forward but gale's turned the other way to talk to randy :D

are you talking about the meta-fascinating thing? it is true. not that i don't still love you know, of course.

it really is. i like the way the speak, like in old time film noir but with a modern twist. it's really fascinating.

they should still work. i hope so. qaf music is awesome.

i sure could! let's hear it for the boy i'm sure you know. straight to number one is when justin gives brian a blowjob in mikey's old room.
high school confidential: justin dances for the king of babylon contest.
save the last dance: prom
svefn-g-englar: like the first time
teenage sensation: brian waiting for justin to come back from michael's (they were talking about their comic)
the nothing song: brian and the hustler :(
from the inside: brian and justin in the backroom (i don't want to say more in case you don't already know)
true faith: celebrating something that happens at the end of 314 (i don't know if you're spoiled for s3 or not)
you are my sunshine: brian and justin meet on the street after they break up :(
this mess we're in: bj talking at the end of 512 (i think)
love burns/ambition: first used in screener episode, second in final episode, for the last bj scene
proud: last song of 513

me too! he's so caring with justin, i love it.

i know. email can be really overrated. cool, i left my address at your cmas card post :D

ha, ahemness. i feel much less awkward saying it directly online than i do in real life. oh yes, that's a very nice scene ;) mainly because we get to see gale's chest and abs, and wow the man is perfect.

he is really good! i love that scene.

314 is my favorite finale. it's actually happy! and bj are so happy and comfortable together, and they are just so much love.

yeah, it's kind of, bittersweet i guess. i mean, brian finally asks justin to move in with him, because he wants him to and not because he feels some sort of obligation (like in s2), but we know justin is leaving. and yeah, we never hear justin's answer.

woot, i'm excited too!

omg so true! I adore qaf music. I mean, I was a totally no-dance-music-ever kinda girl, but the gayness converted me. I love it when the lyrics really match the scene, or even reveal more about the emotions...

All the ones you listed rock very hard. HEE high school confidential always puts me into a S1!Justin mood. Y'know when he was cocky, stalkerish and utterly brilliant. :x
Weapon in 309! Here by my side, you are, destruction here by my side, a new color to paint the world never turn your back on it... *sniff*
ready to go! There's just something about Brian and Justin fucking to rock..
Hmm, and filthy mind. >:) Another porno song.

ok. i'm stopping.

oh me too. i hated dance music, but i like practically every single qaf song. i love reading the lyrics of the songs to find out more about the scene.

i ♥ s1!justin so very much. yay cocky stalkers!

ah yes, weapon. that's a good one too.
filthy mind is so a sex song ;)

AH Thanks for uploading these songs! Strangely enough, I didn't have all of them, so I'm dl-ing a few. Gah. I can never listen to Ambition all the way through. But I love the remix of Proud! It always kills me.

you're welcome! ambition makes me really sad. i don't like to think about it :/ i know, it kills me too. and when they play sleep at the beginning of 513.

it's a great song, but it makes me sad because it's first used in 102.

The music really was spot on. All nursing All the time.

Will take the Proud remix and #5 and #7. Thanks for sharing :D

Not sure if I can ever listen to "You are my Sunshine again" (in any version) without starting to get all depressed :((( But PROUD is a wonderful song, and I think the lyrics are really hopeful for B/J and their future. Call me stupid, but I think Brian would want Justin happy and proud of him, and so he'd know exactly what to do to make Justin (and himself) proud of him. I.e. follow Justin, do everything to make sure NY was a temporary situation and that Justin would always know Brian *really* wanted him. *sap*

ha, did you listen to it on the nursing station? :P

you're welcome!

i don't think i've ever listened to it, even though i have the song. it's too depressing :( "you'll never know, dear, how much i love you. please don't take my sunshine away" OMG :((( i love "proud"! oh yes, i definitely agree with the happy and the proud feeling. i hope brian would do that, i really do.

Of course I did :P


I actually spent an hour tonight watching clips from season 5. Surprisingly enough, I watched their goodbye in 513 and didn't even have to cry. Cried my eyes out over Brian dancing at the end at Babylon though (no, not because of the way he was dancing) because it hit me again how everything is really over. And then I listened to Proud and cried some more *pathetic* And yeah, Brian would do that. He's learned a lot in those five years. And I think one of the most important things he's learned is that he's worth it, and deserves some happiness, just like the rest of the mortals. So he's going after Justin until he comes back, and then they live happily ever after. Yes. They really do.

wow, that's an accomplishment. for real. haha, yeah, brian's dancing wasn't bad in that scene. that's the main reason i haven't yet watched that certain dvd that's been floating about teh internets that we're not supposed to have. i like knowing there's still something i haven't seen yet. he certainly has. i don't think he so much hates himself anymore or think he's unworthy of love. i'd like to believe they end up together.

~saving your list~

Haha, I remember reading his bio on imdb and thinking the same thing. It's weird (but funny) the kind of stuff that people write, like when people make things up on wikipedia or urbandictionary.

I lovelovelove the music they used on QAF. All of the music was so relevant to each scene/episode without being hokey. And I owe about 90 percent of the dance music I have to the music people, which really helps when I'm hyper/need to stay up :D

Date: 10 Dec 2006 21:21 (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
woo! i've saved your list as well.

yeah, it's strange funny, and unexpected. i want to make up something really crazy and put it on urbandictionary.

yes! it wasn't cheesy, and i love how you can read the lyrics to get more insight on what was happening in the scene. i didn't like dance music before i started watching the show, and now i love all the songs they used. yeah, they're great for having impromptu dance parties :D

ROFL. imdb, while it makes my life, is subject to some weird-ass shit now and again.

::plots for your list::

Guh, I love all of their music choices.. another one of my favorites is Weapon in 309 because the beginning is just *so* emotional, and it fits the scene perfectly. Also: snagging Love Burns and Ambition (yeah.. I didn't have that, wtf.) --- I always thought 'Love Burns' was in 510 somewhere because of that icon you have, but no. OH. Favor? Do you have Right Before My Eyes by The Snitches, and if so would you pretty please upload it for me?

i know! the people in the boards are crazy.


ah yes, that's true! i should add it to the list. usually i'm too busy paying attention to uh, other things to really listen to the lyrics ;) ha, yeah that is misleading. but love was burning in them at that moment! :P you are in luck! i do have that. the snitches - right before my eyes (

ha, i just replied to your entry. i already have the qaf book and s1-4 on dvd. sooo, i don't really know what else there is, but yeah. that's what i have.
