jyuukoi: soylent @ IJ (my own work) (Germania - I thought it was harvest)
Friday, January 8th, 2010 03:56 am
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.

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)

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.

Everyone is commanded to watch this!

I have a list of yay's.

Soren was born, so now we have another cute baby in the household. He's adorable

Praise the gods for a manly Cloud that [personal profile] shukoi plays.

You can never have too many Relm icons.

Pizza tonight!

This entry was short and concise? Well yes, it's been a long day. I was on the computer all night and with nothing to show for it except for a Klaus icon, a Relm icon and the link I've presented earlier in this entry.

HILARIOUS!
