Found via Misha (not SPN Misha). This is so awesome!

Say what? I'm DONE! With everything at long last! Thus, goodies to celebrate!

When I was younger and obsessed with David Bowie, I found this song that had been written about Space Oddity called "Major Tom (Coming Home)" by Peter Schilling. It was a danceable piece of 80s genius. A number of bands have done covers recently. So I figured I would provide Space Oddity, Peter Schilling's song, and the three covers I have.

If you haven't ever heard Peter Schilling's version you can just dl that here

1. Shiny Toy Guns, their cover is probably more affective than the original song. It's typical Shiny Toy Guns fare, but it's a lot of fun.
2. I Hate Kate, This version is fairly standard, but it's a little more punky.
3. Heaven Below, I think in some twisted way this one is my favorite. It's a hard rock cover with some definite metal elements thrown in there. I think out of the three, this one really looked at the song and thought how can we make it our own.

.zip of all five songs here

Awhile ago [livejournal.com profile] shoshannagold prompted me to do a Generation Kill mix. At the time I'd already had one, sort of half-assed, and I thought I had a fic to go with it. But that sort of disintegrated into a pile of dust, so I decided what the hell, it's just sitting there. So I figured I'd finish it and post it. Without further ado, I give you a Brad/Nate mix.

Just took my US Lesbian and Gay History midterm. The class's assignments are in general really stupid, but the midterm was surprisingly nice [livejournal.com profile] out_0f_habit mentioned that she wished homosexuality was a major. I feel like that's kind of my life. By accident, I swear it!

I'm researching gay porn stars for my senior thesis too. ALSO BY ACCIDENT! I don't actually know anything at all. If anybody wants to give me a crash course, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that at some point during the year I will be going up in front of my peers, my master, and my dean, making a presentation that involves gay porn stars.

I realize now I've posted a song pretty much every day. So let's have one for Brad/Nate. This one's called "Liquid Sugar" by Maps. Everything by Maps could be a great vid, so if you're hard up for ideas...

If Everything I know,
Is possibly Controlled
If there's a way, let's go.

I found this song "Evil Has Never" by Union of Knives which just strikes me so much as Dean talking to Sam post Season Four.

"What do you mean?
Evil has never loved you
Evil has never loved you
Evil has never loved you as I do.
- Union of Knives

You should DL it and see for yourself. I wish I was a vidder. Somebody should make me one.

I woke up this morning and wrote a seven page paper on homosexuality vs. homosociality in Charlie Chaplin's City Lights. My reward was a really hot guy on the lightweight crew team showing me how to work the printer. Hallelujah! Midterms will soon be over for me.

ETA: Hey, I notice five of you have already DLed, do you think you could say something if you do?

1. Misha, Meredith, and I all went to see White Lies play at Webster Hall. They're one of my favorite bands and I was really lucky to get tickets this time around, but we had such a shit audience. They didn't come on for an encore. It just, beh, disappointing. However, their front man Harry McVeigh is adorable.

Look! So cute! )

We went to the International for drinks after and we met this guy Kirk who was one of those awesome bar regulars you always hope to meet. He was just a wealth of crazy stories, and he's worked pretty much everywhere. Somehow the subject of anal bleaching came up (I DON'T KNOW), and Meredith and I wondered if they have a scale, light pink to like...blue white like they do at the dry cleaners. I mean, I don't understand people who do this to themselves. Your butt is your butt.

2. I stayed over in New York City because my mom was out here visiting Freshkills' landfill (she's writing a book on the sociology of our waste) to see a concert about packaging waste. He apparently made his electric guitar out of a Tropicana box. Pretty impressive.

She takes actually really beautiful pictures of reconstituted garbage dumps such as this one... )

Anyway, she's still in bribery mode, so we went to see Jude Law in Hamlet. Dear God, he was gorgeous and I loved the way he played Hamlet with a slightly sardonic note. They had him in this one clingy cashmere sweater that didn't quite hit his waistband. Ai, I nearly died!

He was something else... )

3. Also, [livejournal.com profile] loony_moony, [livejournal.com profile] memphis86, [livejournal.com profile] regala_electra, and I went to the theater in Astoria to see Surrogates while my mother was off galavanting about the garbage. I think the highlight of the outing was the fact that I flipped out when I saw that Paul Walker and Hayden Christensen are going to be in the same movie. The effect is somewhat mitigated by the fact that Chris Brown is also in this movie, but HAYDEN AND PAUL.

Do you know how much I want to write slash about them? Ah Jesus, that would just be too pretty. Also, also, I ADORE the costumes. God, I'm slain by men who dress in suits.

A few pictures I dug up... )

And that was my weekend!

Oh man, I was up until 5AM talking, and when I woke I had the worst hangover I've had to date. I nearly fell out of my loft-bed and killed myself when my alarm went off. But now I have vanilla coke, cherry coke, and coke with lime flavored lipsmackers, which might actually be a sign that god exists.

I also cannot stop watching this... )

ETA: unless this wasn't clear to anybody I did go out last night, before I stayed up talking.

For [livejournal.com profile] wendy,

18 tracks that Sam and Dean love to belt when they're under the spray )

And now for something completely different. I'm mostly moved in. I live on the fourth floor of an entryway of pretty much all boys. It's going to be interesting.

Oh man, uploading this album actually gave me hell, but I was bound and determined, because I enjoy it so much. This was my greatest find of 2008. I've put several tracks on the mixes and soundtracks they make because they're awesome. Oh, and they're all about death. In a cheery danceable sort of way. They’ve cited Talking Heads as an influence, but either they’ve been listening to some previously unknown darkwave cover album or they don’t know what they’re talking about. And the lead singer sounds scarily like Andrew Eldritch.

100.96 MB Zip

All right, I'm going to cut some more t-shirts up. Tell me if you download please.

ETA: now with reasonably sized album art.

Last night after Calculus I rushed downtown to catch the Handsome Furs concert with Meredith and Dan Boeckner said before he started their second song, "This is based on the new Errol Morris documentary called Terminator Salvation. It's about the future with robots. Christian Bale whips out the Batman voice in one scene and it was truly terrifying."

I was so amused.

On a different note, you should all download Thriving Ivory's debut album.

The single "Angels on the Moon," in my opinion, is the new anthem for disaffected youth. Just ignore the awful album art that doesn't match the sound of this band at all. Other notables are "Runaway" and "For Heavens Sake." It's feel good music, but we all need that sometimes.

do you think you could tell me if you download?

I finally went and did it. I created that makeup blog I've been talking about for the last half century. Glitterkid. I've already written some stuff, so if you like makeup even half as much as I do, check it out.

Also, the song "Ten Million Slaves" by Otis Taylor from Public Enemies has been rocking my socks off. It basically served the function in the movie of THIS IS A BADASS MOMENT HERE, first with Christian Bale and then with Johnny Depp. If I say nothing else about that movie, Christian Bale is freaking gorgeous in it.

How was your 4th of July? I celebrated mine with Public Enemies, Fireworks on the Hudson with Misha (Bulgarian Misha not SPN Misha), and chocolate cake I baked for a crippled Colleen. She's hobbling around on crutches badly because she refuses to use them the right way.

I think you should all download this album right now.

"The Grand Archives," Grand Archives, 11 Songs, 46.34 MB

You might know them from the "Sleepdriving" fame, but even if you don't, they have some really beautiful mellow songs like "Torn Blue Foam Couch," "A Setting Sun," and then some whimsical pieces like "Orange Juice" and "Miniature Birds"

Wish 'Verse, picking up where 2x20 left off. By their mother's urging, Sam and Dean unwillingly spend a summer repairing an old farmhouse left to their family by a distant friend of their father's. Under the pressure of close quarters, Sam and Jessica's quickly-approaching wedding, and Dean's recovery from his apparent suicide attempt in an Illinois warehouse, they are forced to confront the many cracks in their relationship. Guest-starring: dusty LPs, empty beer bottles, and poker games to wait out the rain. Written by [livejournal.com profile] elohvee, with art by [livejournal.com profile] dark_reaction all for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang.

I'm on a bit of a roll with this music thing. Anyway, this is for [livejournal.com profile] miss_begonia as a belated birthday gift. She told me earlier this month that my mixes made her happy. Or well, she said one of my mixes made her happy, this might be a case of extrapolating the universal from the particular. But whatever, I'm interpretting it this way!

There's no theme to this thing. Or maybe theme is NO THEME. I am clever. )

I was thinking, so many times I'm up at the asscrack of dawn, because I'm insane and like to go to bed then, but I thought it might be nice to have a special something for you guys when you wake up.

Feel Good Songs )

All part of my 'be positive' campaign. And now I'm going to bed for reals.

[livejournal.com profile] balefully wasn't feeling so hot, so I said I'd make her a music mix. So this is for her. The best part? That picture I located is Connecticut Hall, which is actually on my campus!

[livejournal.com profile] maypirate has been feeling poorly for...well a long time, and mostly I can never figure out what to tell her to make he feel better, so I hope that a music mix would suffice. You know, other's words.
