: Gift Iconage and Ramblings :

First of all I would like to present the following icon to [profile] shuufish.



It seems to me that I have ten million Take That icons and yet I don't think that Shu has a single Tori icon, so I thought I'd remedy that. So there it is, hopefully it's meaningful and it honestly came out REALLY good. You know, I didn't like Tori Amos before Shu, but then I listened to "Sleeps with Butterflies" and then suddenly I just started liking Tori's songs little by little, it is true.. that a Tori song can have no meaning to me one day, but the next day.. it just hits me right where it was supposed to.

I have the next three days off. This week's schedule looks really shitty, however next week looks better and then then week after that is better. It being a corperation really does suck honestly, but at the very least I don't have to worry about the car insurance payment which will make my next paycheck hurt not so much. (not to mention I'm due for a 30 cent payraise within the next couple of months, my anniversary date.)

I have nothing particularly fannish to say, after all I just got off work. Maybe I should post a picture that randomly amuses me!

I just fell in love with a pairing.

I was making a Germania icon and while I was doing it, the Tori Amos song "Toast" came on, and then the last part made me listen, the lyrics somehow just clicked. It's a sad interpertation, considering that Germania and Rome sort of faded from being, their sons came into their own and they had to step aside and let 'them' do the growing.

"I thought I'd see again,
You say you might do.. maybe in a carving;
In a cathedral, somewhere in Barcelona."


So then I had to rewind it and listen to it.

I think that the best icons are made that way, when you are just making them and then the perfect song syncs up with whatever it is that you're making. For me it's a highly personal and almost transcendant expirience.

Normally this would encompass alot of various musics, however the only thing that Jyuu listened to this year seemed to be Take That. (okay that's not the truth, there were a few artists that shined through, but the majority of her listening comprised itself of pretty boybandedness.) So she decided to offer up her top twenty picks of all of Take That's discography. Snag, grab and perhaps comment saying what you liked or perhaps didn't like. These are her personal favorites though and are in no way keeping with the opinions of other Take That Acolytes (hey, everyone is different amirite?)

Why Take That you wonder? Because they write very -real- love songs, that is why I love them. They are strong and earthy but with that whisper of whimsy. I don't get moved by love songs that easily, but I can honestly say that all of Take That's songs seem to be a love song to life, to hope, to patience and all of those things that make love worth it. Instead of overdoing it on the techno and synths, they really do it classy and implement the classics, violins, pianos and other such instruments that are not used so often in pop. They honestly win and I'm more then happy to share them with you...

So come on in and enjoy the ride.

If any of you are interested in using these icons, go ahead and be my guess, I've already posted them up at Soylent@Insanejournal and they are really free to nab. (usually a good indication of what I like is usually what I icon, since I can't icon things that I don't necessarily like)

: On snow and other such :



First I would like to start off this post by saying that I had expected the weather to be frightful, certainly there was alot of bitching and moaning. Plenty of people were like "Nia! have a safe drive home, it's very slick and snowy!" and of course on the walk through the store toward the front door, I believed them. Then I walked outside.

And laughed.

Snow BARELY covered the ground. And I made it home just fine, I mean I drove carefully but there was nothing major honestly. I forgot for a moment that I was used to MICHIGAN SNOW, and that Kentucky snow is in no way comparable. So yes, I had a good laugh about that, I need to be sure not to take everything these guys say about snow seriously. (They said ice and they meant slush, I tell you I've driven on pure ice rink surface before.. because that's how bad Michigan truly gets)

Secondly I need to get an icon done today. Even if it's a little icon. So far I've been doing good on the creative side and I even have a fic planned for "I'd Wait for Life" because I got a lovely imagery when I was listening to the song on my way to work (It's a shame that there is no Princess vol 32, even though I understand WHY that is *it's because the author is set on killing EVERYONE (THAT I HOLD DEAR) OFF*

Also, it's time to start thinking of who my new layout will be based on. Must ask Shu on this since it's her turn to pick someone that she fancies.

Also top 20 Take That songs are coming up soon, just need to compile the list. That's easier said then done. -_- Because I first have to ask myself what is my FIRST favorite Take That song (though I have an idea of what it is)

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

First item of note: K-ON season 2 everyone! Who is all excited about that? I know I am. Fweeeee.. yeah, that's what I'm talking about. (that just means more Mio!)

Secondly Shu pointed out that Gary Barlow's eyebrow raises everytime he hits a high point, that was during the earliest part of the concerts, to which point we both sat there giggling like idiots everytime his eyebrow rose, it was one of those moments that coloured the entire concert with us (as well as every "I'm a pritty ballerina" moment that Jason had.)

My new years resolution is to be more creative. This year I was in a rut that sort of lasted the entire year. (no icons, no fics.. nothing.) so that's it, I'm going to try to be creative and even if I have to just icon my brains out, I will. (Icons are my main thing though, but it's so hard when I never find pictures that just give me that DESIRE to icon)

Second new years resolution. Listen to more music that isn't Take That. No seriously I really love the band, I mean I adore the band.. but honestly I have close to 5,000 songs on my playlist and only 101 of them are Take That songs, that's like less then 3 percent that I'm actually listening to. (though to be fair, I listened to alot of Gary Go this year but 'ahem', can you say 'opening act'?) There is the new Duran Duran CD that is coming out shortly that I should be psyching up for, there are other albums that I really want too. It is because of Take That that I will not have a Music 2009 post and that is sad. (though I may upload my top 20 Take That songs.)

P.S ignore the song that's currently playing because honestly. NOT THE NEW YEARS YET.

: Random notes :



Firstly, people who leave their spit cups lying around the store are disgusting. No honestly, if you have such a disgusting habit as that, the very least you can do is get rid of it. (Oh wait, I forgot most spitters have the manners of a fricking sow in season.)

Secondly, I have been listening to The Golden Compass audiobook and it's a really amazing story. I remember there was some controversy over it because the author was an atheist or something, well I don't know how that should matter. I do not see anything brow beating about it, and it's an engaging story. Alot of people need to realize that books are books, that they sometimes contain controversial subjects. If you don't like it, don't read it.. and if you don't read it then you shouldn't complain over it's contents, easy as 1-2-3!

I have a headache and I'm going to bed, just wanted to ramble off thoughts that occured to me in my long shift at work. Also, I'm going to kill my cat if she doesn't watch out, tried to get into the window and pulled down the shades, the little bitch, luckily she didn't wake Midori.

So anyways, have a fun meme!

FSTs are very popular because there are certain songs that you feel just fit a character heart and soul, so with that being said, in a comment give me the name of a character and/or pairing and I will give you a song that I really think fits that pairing (it'd help if it's a pairing that you know we share, since I find it hard to find songs for pairings that I don't really fancy). Also, post this to your flist and get their responses. FUN TIMES TO BE HAD FOR ALL!

: But you and me, we just lay down in the garden :



First of all I would like to say "Goodbye Santa Finland!" for while his icon will rest quite safely on my insanejournal account where I have an infinite ammount of icon space it seems, he is going to leave both Dreamwidth and LJ for the rest of the year. Goodbye Santa!Finlnd.. enjoy your salted fish! (I'll need another Hetalia icon to replace him methinks.. I'm thinking something awesome.. like Poland.



Secondly, I will get that Take That Present Live at the Circus review up and running, just need to watch it a few more times (because I'm greedy and I love my Take That). For all of you that have never heard of Take That or anything.. allow me to link you to a video of exactly WHY they are epic.

This is their song "The Garden" from their live Tour. (My soul and Jennie's soul would both be sold in order to get the chance to go to one of their concerts.. and oh yes, my cat's soul.)

[profile] chemcat WATCH THIS VIDEO! being a fellow Take-That-ite, you'd appreciate it!



All stuff aside, I got my Harajuku Lover's G perfume.. FOR TEN BUCKS. Despite everything, I do have to admit that the day after Christmas shopping is nice even though in other ways it sucked being that I work for Walmart. (10 dollars for a perfume that normally costs 45 dollars. ROCK ON!

My Klaus Von Dem Eberback Sim sounds alot like Koyasu Takehito. This clearly means that if Japan ever does a "From Eroica with Love" anime, Koyasu Takehito needs to voice the Major. <3

: oh he's a loaded gun but isn't everybody? :



I officially swear by Zicam.. just a little bit has me feeling better. Yes, that stuff is damned expensive, but OH SO WORTH IT, I just have that awkward stuffiness right now.

I have discovered a perfume that I absolutely must have. Harajuku G, it's like a japanese coconut smell (seriously I don't know what a japanese coconut would smell like, but with a name like Harajuku, I assume that would be what they were going for.) They have a bottle of it in a gift set cheap for 20 dollars, and I may just pick it up. Really it smells really nice and I only have a lonely bottle of Curve that I rarely use.

I'm off for the next couple of nights. HURRAH!

And now for some worthy holiday cheer )

That was definitely relevant to my interests, how about you?

Which reminds me, I need to get off my arse and one day make that Mythos icon that I want from Princess Tutu. Yes, the image DID remind me of that series.

I need to find more 100x100 icon brushes, because I have a Marie/Allelujah icon that just won't be perfect until I've found the right brush. -_- Will have to save this for my next day off unless I magically get up early enough to actually do thorough hardcore searching.

(for all of you curious, I do not ship exclusively male/male.. I also do not ship exclusively male/female. I just ship whatever it is that I damn well feel like *I do like me some Alle/Halle selfcest too though.. mmmmhmmmm good)

Also, I adore myself some girl/girl (which means that I'll probably be getting into that new yuri anime sooner rather then later.)

My Favorite Higurashi character, I has one!

Hanyuu!


Enough that I made an icon of her. I'm rather intriqued however by the way the series is going, it's not as macabre as the previous season.. this may just be a false start or it may be the light at the end of the tunnel, not too sure. Needless to say, I really like Rika too (and well all considering.. Rika was the only one who didn't do a whole lot of shitty things in the previous season, she was just the eternal victim.

On to watch episode 3 of Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni Kai.

Also, Poland is so cute. I've been rereading strips and really, he's just as dumb as a rock but it's endearing. I bet that unless monitored, he forgets his pants all the time. He doesn't strike me as someone who thinks that pants is necessary, what with all that skirt wearing.
