UUUURGH that was horrible. I lost seven pounds in five days and made the mistake of hanging out with runners today. They looooooove weight loss. I had to threaten to sneeze on them. On the upside, I managed to keep the whole running thing from my football team and spent the first day of the new season HEROICALLY SPRINTING PAST THEM at training. I don't think I've seen so many people go "..." IRL before. It was great.

Also, I figured out why I'm such a bad Manic Street Preachers fan, and love their commercially stuff way more than their proper stuff. It's because he enunciates so much more clearly in the commercial stuff. James Dean Bradfield, why do you hate me?

Have a shitload of different versions of Fairytale of New York (including the original). These two also deserve video, because they are awesome.

Also I am writing a threesome sex scene in my yuletide and it is even more difficult than regular sex scenes. I made a diagram to help get everyone in the right place!

I love the new album. I always love the commercialy albums they only put out to make money.

[livejournal.com profile] niav made me get a last.fm. Finally. This was a really bad idea while I'm on a nostalgia kick, because I've spent all day listening to Kenickie and Alisha's Attic. Help.


I am watching Bruce Springsteen!

It's almost worth putting up with all that American football for. I hate American football so much. It's not a sport, you guys. It's maths. And they have to keep stopping for a rest, like, every ten seconds. WTF kind of sport is that?

You may as well have some good versions.

Leonard Cohen - my priest at college used to love Leonard Cohen. I am uneducated and do not get it.

Jeff Buckley

The Dresden Dolls

K.D. Lang

Rufus Wainright

Glen Hansard & Markéta Irglová - this is my favourite; [livejournal.com profile] cidercupcakes gave it me. They keep forgetting the words and giggling. It's adorable.

And while I'm doing this I might as well upload some versions of Fairytale of New York.

The Pogues & Kirsty MacColl

Stars - this one is really good.

Christy Moore - I love Christy Moore, even though he sings both parts.

KT Tunstall

That is so cool.


Some songs for you for St Patrick's day.

The Wolfe Tones, the Clancy Brothers, Christy Moore.

I also got to see St Patrick scaring small children with plastic snakes, which is an underrated pasttime.

ETA: I have issues with Dublin accents. The kind of issues that involve cringing & sticking my fingers in my ears, but you need to see this. We're totally doing a Father Ted this year.

The reason the song I'm listening to sounds different from usual is because there are two versions of the song. And I only ever bothered listening to one.

God, I am so slow some days.


Youtube troubles

Every embedded youtube video on my flist today has turned into the Guy as Gaston vid.

Thank you God?


My music just got more eclectic

I've started listening to hip hop. Blame for this will be apportioned later. You've sort of got to listen to it in a different way than a lot of things I listen to, with far more emphasis on the lyrics than the tune. You can't just let it wash over you, you've got to pay attention.

Why I was trying to explain this to my mum, I have no idea. I certainly wasn't expecting the reply, 'Oh, like Irish music then?'

Uh. I guess? Maybe?

'Can you make me a CD of it, then?'

And that's how my mum spent the evening bopping aroung to NWA, Kanye West & Gym Class Heroes. At least she's not listening to fucking Westlife again. Or singing along to Marilyn Manson.

Also, I find this completely adorable.
