I'm curious. Do you guys have an album that just sticks with you no matter how much time has passed? Not even necessarily the most important one to you, or your favorite...just something about it.

Yesterday I pulled a stack of CDs from a forgotten box in my TV stand storage, and ripped them to mp3. One was Tori Amos' "Boys For Pele" and damned if it doesn't still pack an emotional gutpunch. I'm not sure why, but it always, always does this to me. "Doughnut Song" had me choked up in my cubicle. It's not even the first Tori album I heard, or the second, so that can't be why. I wonder who else feels this way about an album, and what it is. Not sure about the why. Maybe the why isn't important.

I do remember that putting this CD on always helped me write. Maybe I should try that again.

There really needs to be a support group for people who keep listening to Katy Perry songs because they're catchy and hate themselves for it.

It's one of my favorite Christmas songs. Hmm. Odd.

Give it a listen:

I have to go to NYCC for the rest of the day in a few minutes, but I had to share this piece of awesomeness first.

I was supposed to do this meme a while ago, but I was waiting for someone who will remain nameless Casey to give me more questions BUT SHE NEVER DID. SOBS.

From [livejournal.com profile] scathachdhu
1. When (as in at what point in the series) did you fall in love with Avatar?
SPOILERZ. When Zuko and Iroh wordlessly cut off their topknots at the beginning of season 2. I LIKED it a lot before that, but I feel in love with it then--it was just such a rich moment, and not overdone. Yep, I'm a sucker for the emo teen, what of it?

2. Name 3 places you want to go on vacation.
Japan, California (again) and England.

3. What 5 songs are you into right now?
I'M GLAD YOU ASKED. Cut for pimping and lyrics. )

4. What's your favorite episode/chapter/part of Bleach?
Damn, let's not ask difficult questions or anything. I don't think I can really choose just one, but I tend to re-read the rescue at the execution scene and the Ichigo vs. Byakuya fight more than anything else, the former for obvious reasons and the latter because it's just such a rich, layered fight with so many emotional and cool fight-o elements.

5. Describe your perfect weekend.
Lounging on a cruise ship with friends as cabana boys attend to our every need.

Okay, I have a question. Have any of you ever liked the sound of a song and felt torn because you despise the lyrics? I'm feeling that now. I've only heard it a couple of times on the radio, but I was digging the groove of Avril Lavigne's new single, "Girlfriend." (STFU, I know she's a poser, I happen to like poser music as well as stuff by really talented people. I also eat Taco Bell AND deliciously authentic Mexican food. You can have both.)

Then I saw the video last night while treadmilling at the gym, and I started paying attention to the lyrics. Close-captioning is so handy that way. Lyrics are here, but have an excerpt:

Don’t you know what I could do to make you feel alright?
Don’t pretend I think you know I’m damn precious
And Hell Yeah
I’m the motherfucking princess
I can tell you like me too and you know I’m right

These aren't that bad on their own. Spoiled and obnoxious, sure, but it's the video which really pisses me off. I suppose it's possible I didn't glance up for the first few seconds of it at the girlfriend in question killed Avril's puppy or something, but as far as I can tell, the plotty part of the video is about Avril and her friends being horrible, horrible bitches to this girl who did nothing to them. She gets hit by a mini-golf ball, falls into a pond full of sludge, and gets tricked into slamming into a port-a-potty which then falls over. The video ends with Avril congratulating herself for being such a cunt and wriggling on her boy, who I guess just abandons his unfortunate girlfriend.

What the fuck?! Look, I realize pop music is not exactly something you listen to to find role models, but since when did being a total bitch for some guy's holy cock become such a great thing? This song is basically a less skanky version of that Dontcha. Ugh, I fucking hate it. The girls in the video were SO obnoxious that I seriously thought it might be a parody until the end.

The worst part is I still really like the sound of the song. But fuck you, Avril, you're not getting a fucking dime from me for it.

The total:

Elefant - The Black Magic Show
Aquabats - Myths, Legends and Other Amazing Adventures Vol. 2
Sugarcult - Lights out
We Are Scientists - With Love and Squalor
L'arc~en~Ciel - SMILE
Straylight Run - Prepare to be Wrong
Brandi Carlile - Brandi Carlile
Jem - Finally Woken
Snakes on a Plane - The Album

Total: $40

All in all, an excellent haul.

I don't know if I should be more embarrassed about having the Tarzan soundtrack on my iPod or the fact that I'm getting all verklempt listening to it. At work. While masking out pictures of river creatures.

In order to get comments other than the mocking-me type, what music do you own that you are (or just should be but you're not) ashamed of? Let's all share.

I love Casey Stratton so fscking much. There aren't many artists who can cover Bjork and Bonnie Raitt and do a better job of it than either of the originals (imho). `dog, I owe you a favor for introducing me to him. Or sex. Or a favor of sex.

Casey, I can't listen to "Fastlove" anymore without thinking of the cheesy-fun bad musical metaphors in Midvalley/Meryl and cracking up.  You've ruined me for peppy gay dancepop.  DAMN YOU!

You and I, we’re two of a kind
I hate to say it but you’ll never relate
What makes you tick?
It makes me smile.

You said that I should get away from it all
And bury my head in the sand if I want to
I think you...
Should thank me now

You were lying wide awake in the garden
Trying to get over your stardom
And I could never see you depart us
And you’re my baby
You’re just another girl

I never mind the way I had to see ya
My working on a day show never explains
Why I see you
And I feel your pain

I love to wear my work inside of my head
I can’t complain but you should never react
The way you did
I feel your time

You were lying wide awake in the garden
Trying to get over your stardom
And I could never see you depart us
And you’re my baby…

And you were lying wide awake in the garden
Trying to get over your stardom
And I could never see you depart us
And you’re my baby
You’re just another girl
Just another girl

Praise you, Mr. Time Warner repairman, for fixing the bad cable line. Lack of intarweb is nobody's friend.

I enjoy Nickelback, but this amuses.

Worst songs meme, because it requires little brain power and that's how much I have left after fixing up the tech writing paper. Stupid crappy-writer group person and stupid no-show group person. Chelsie's okay, though. Bolded songs are the ones I like.
