Meme: Soundtrack of Your Life

My new speakers arrived today, so I thought I'd do a music meme. 

It's an old meme, but still funny. 

The Soundtrack of your Life Meme 

1. open your library (iTunes, winamp, media player, iPod)
2. put it on shuffle
3. press play
4. for every question, type the song that's playing
5. new question -- press the next button
6. don't lie and try to pretend you're cool

Note: Links go to youtube. 

Opening Credits: 
Friday Friday - Boy Kill Boy

I know something needs to go
I know something you should know
I know something needs to go
I know something you should know

Waking up:
Supermassive Black Hole - Muse

Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the supermassive
(Ooh, you set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the supermassive
(Ooh, you set my soul alight)

First Day At School:
Time to Burn - The Rasmus

Tell me why do I feel this way
All my life I've been standing through the borderline
Too many bridges burned, too many lies I've heard
Had a life but I can't go back
I can't do that, it will never be the same again
And I know I don't have any time to burn

Falling in love:
Ugly - The Exies

We are dirt, we are alone
You know we're far from sober
We are fake, we are afraid
You know it's far from over
We are dirt, we are alone
You know we're far from sober
Look closer, are you like me?
Are you ugly? 

Fight Song: 
Boyscout'n - Menomena

I can't believe I lent my hand to help destroy a helpless man
Maybe it's a long shot now, but still I say
Should my soul survive this fall
Then I pray if I pray at all
That I could catch my breath and come away unscathed

Breaking up:
Midnight Show - The Killers

Oh crashing time can't hide a guilty girl
With jealous hearts that start with blossom curls
I took my baby's breath beneath the chandelier
Of stars in atmosphere
And watch her disappear
Into the midnight show

Spinning Around- Kylie Minogue
I'm spinning around
Move outta my way
I know you're feeling me
'cause you like it like this

Life's Okay:
The Vision of Escaflowne (Instrumental) - The Vision of Escaflowne OST2.

Mental Breakdown:
City Lights on Low Clouds - Stranger Spirits
Would I be lying if I said we were to blame?<
The city lights on these low clouds seem to drizzle out your name
Down my skin, it needs your touch
These moving clouds can feel the rush 
And all alone, I watch reminders 
Of where I am, without you
City lights on low clouds. 

This is so ~underground~ that I can't find it ANYWHERE on youtube, or transcribed lyrics. Hence the embed. 

(I honestly have no idea where I found this song) 

Secret - The Pierces

Got a secret; can you keep it? 
Swear this one you'll save
Better lock it in your pocket
Taking this one to the grave
When I show you, then I'll know you
Won't tell what I said
'Cos two can keep a secret
If one of us is dead 

Flash Backs:
Such Pretty Eyes for a Snake - Magnolia Electric Co. 

It wouldn't be the first time
That I made a mistake in my life
In fact, I learned how
To make a living 
By making mistakes

Besides, you got such pretty eyes for a snake 

Getting Back Together:
I Get It - Kate Voegele

Well, well baby, what do you know,
You turned the tables on me, didn't you?
My, my, my, it only serves me right, now I get it
This is how hurt feels
And it's everything they say it is

Whoever Brings the Night  - Nightwish

All you love is a lie
You one-night butterfly
Hurt me, be the one
Whoever brings the night

Birth of a Child:
I Guess You're Right - The Posies

If I meet more than your eye
I guess you're right
If I wake up in you're mind
I guess you're right
Can I crawl around your bones and make my home
Would that be right? 
If I never let you go, I know you so
And you're so right 

Final Battle:
Stay Home (Instrumental) - Ghost in the Shell OST.

Death Scene:
Air Traffic Control - Louis XIV

Air traffic control, I've been gone
I've been up away from home
Now my gear is down, I'm circling round
And I am coming in 
Running out of oxygen
And my fuel is running low
Runway lights, where do I go?
I'm looking down but they don't show 

Funeral Song:
Cat Scratch Fever -Ted Nugent

Well I don't know where they come from 
But they sure do come 
I hope they comin' for me 
And I don't know how they do it 
But they sure do it good 
I hope they doin' it for free 

They give me cat scratch fever 
Cat scratch fever  

End Credits:
Come Right Out and Say It - Relient K

Why don't you
Come right out and say it?
Even if the words are probably gonna hurt
I'd rather have the truth
Than something insincere
Why don't you
Come right out and say it?
(Come right out and say it?) 
What it is you're thinking
Though I'm thinking it's not what I want to hear 

It looks like the movie of my life is an Indie film. Eh, if the shoe fits. 

You know, it's a bit scary how apart from a couple of songs this is actually a reasonable fit for me. My iTunes knows me well.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic; 2x3 Lesson Zero

I thought of posting this to the Trek Blog, but I think I want to keep that exclusively for Trek related matters.

Yes, the Trek blog that has nothing in it - because I am too busy watching Ponies!


Anyhoo. Here is my Liveblog of the third episode of the second season: Lesson Zero

So, apparently there is a new Thundercats series:






*The designs are very anime-esqu. This doesn't have to be a bad thing. We shall see.

Never gonna dance again

So last night in my neve-ending quest to find a form of exercise that I will actually stick to, I went to a Salsa class.

Wednesday, 31 August 2011

Well, that's the end of that

Last day of work today. Something of an anti-climax.

I suppose that's always the way.

There was some confusion over whether there would be a "presentation" or not. I had been pretty sure there wouldn't, but last night (leaving drinks) they said there would be. I didn't ask - I was asked if I had a speech prepared and I said no, because I doubted that anyone would have bothered to organise one.

Then about quarter to four today, one of the guys came over and was all, "No-one's done anything, so you should just go home." Which seemed to be some sort of cue for everyone else to start up about how there was a card but no-one knew where it was and oh hey there's a envelope of coins, do I just want to take it and run? and oh wait, there's a card? we haven't seen that!

At this point I was feeling very ~menstrual~, and I haven't had much sleep for the past several days, and there was the growing horror of the dawning realisation that every one there (which wasn't that many; loads of meetings and training course today) either felt sorry for me or was enjoying my discomfort.

It was horribly awkward and embarrassing, and then someone from support sent an email asking for an update on something and I swear to fuck I almost replied entirely in eff-words. My options were limited: leave as fast as possible, or have a craaaawling-in-my-skin moment. That or punch someone; I'm not sure which of the last two would be worse, but I'll go with the first because at least I'd maintain some credibility if I punched someone.

So I said goodbye to a few people and legged it.

I have no idea what they'll do with all the coins. Maybe pay someone's bonus next year.

Oh well, upwards and onwards, I guess. Or at least, along if not up.

In which a tone is set

Last full week at work. Six days to go and counting.

Pre-PMT started. Feels like I am carrying and extra litre or so of fluid with me - in my bra. Ow. 

This is what I get for wanting bigger breasts when I was thirteen. This is my punishment. 

I suppose I could start the diet/exercise regime that I have been promising I will go on for the past five years, but where the fun in that? Besides if I'm to start exercising I need new trainers. 

Should have gone shoe shopping a couple of weeks ago. I hear I could have got them for a steal

Thank you, thank you. I'll be here all week.
