day 07 | whatever tickles your fancy

I thought I'd share one of each today, all in one post. Why? Because it tickles my fancy, that's why.

A song:
First Movement of Beethoven's Symphony #6 in F Major, performed by the London Symphony Orchestra (please right-click, save-as). This is the piece of music that gets me to sleep 98% of the time if I can't sleep. I try not to use it too often, either, just in case I desensitize myself to it. One of the most beautiful pieces of music I know. It's called the Pastoral Symphony. My dad, who is the one who got me listening to it when I couldn't sleep, told me I should listen to the music and close my eyes and imagine running through hills and valleys. I pictured The Sound of Music then and still do to this day.

A picture:
The old Marianopolis College campus. )

A book:
The Writing Class by Jincy Willett. I bought this at a Border's in Boston with [livejournal.com profile] drsnicket and baby L in tow. Basically, I needed a halfway decent book to help me avoid the fact that I was spending seven days with six family members. I actually liked this a great deal and finally finished it at the cottage a month or so ago. Once we got back from Cape Cod, I couldn't read it at home alone. I was creeped out. (It's a murder mystery, as you may be able to tell from the cover.) Definitely worth the quick read.

A site:
Venice the Series. The site may be currently down, but this is the home page for the upcoming webseries, Venice, starring Crystal Chappell as out lesbian, Gina. Really looks to be something special. Crystal and her long-time friend, Kim, came up with the concept of Venice and then got hooked up with Hope, who was a friend of a friend, and now Crystal's starring in it (and exec-producing), Kim's the head writer and Hope is the producer/director. Coming in late November!

A YouTube video:
Montreal Canadiens - 100 years and 100 more. I got teary-eyed while watching this. Shut up.

A quote:
"Love isn't brains, children, it's blood -- blood screaming inside you to work its will. I may be love's bitch, but at least I'm man enough to admit it". - Spike, "Lover's Walk", Buffy: The Vampire Slayer. I kind of love that quote. A lot.

And that brings us back to day 7. So here's my post.

Hello and welcome to Day 6.

Quotes. Wow. Okay, there's a zillion of these that I'd like to post.

TV Shows
- "His legs flail about as if independent from his body!" - Chandler Bing, Friends

- BARTLET: I like your show. I like how you call homosexuality an "abomination!"
JACOBS: I don’t say homosexuality is an abomination, Mr. President. The Bible does.
BARTLET: Yes it does. Leviticus!
JACOBS: 18:22.
BARTLET: Chapter and verse. I wanted to ask you a couple of questions while I had you here. I wanted to sell my youngest daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. She's a Georgetown sophomore, speaks fluent Italian, always cleared the table when it was her turn. What would a good price for her be?
BARTLET: While thinking about that, can I ask another? My chief of staff, Leo McGarry, insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly says he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself? Or is it okay to call the police?
BARTLET: Here's one that’s really important, because we’ve got a lot of sports fans in this town. Touching the skin of a dead pig makes one unclean. Leviticus 11:7. If they promise to wear gloves, can the Washington Redskins still play football? Can Notre Dame? Can West Point? Does the whole town really have to be together to stone my brother John for planting different crops side by side? Can I burn my mother in a small family gathering for wearing garments made from two different threads? Think about those questions, would you? One last thing. While you may be mistaking this for your monthly meeting of the Ignorant Tight-Ass Club, in this building, when the president stands, nobody sits.
The West Wing

- Marshall: Remember that night where you drank the twelver of Molson and got all "Super Canadian"?
[flashback]
Robin: [holding a hockey stick] Stanley Cup. Game six, eh? The Rangers are aboot to be sorry they ever played shinny with the Canucks.
Marshall: Hey Robin, I'll give you twenty bucks if you can shoot it through the front door.
Robin: Oh! You're nuttier than a Tim Horton's maple log! Timmy Ho! [tries to shoot the puck through the door]
How I Met Your Mother

- "Her name is Miranda Mona Montgomery. And she is a KANE!" - Erica Kane, All My Children

Okay, there are WAY too many good ones for TV shows, but that's a sampling.

Other Sources

'Come again?' she asked. Yes tomorrow, under the sodium street lights, under the tick of the clock. Under my obligations, my history, my fears, this now. This fizzy, giddy all consuming now. I will not let time lie to me. I will not listen to dead voices or unborn pain. 'What if?' has no power against 'What if not?' The not of you is unbearable. I must have you. Let them prate, those scorn-eyed anti-romantics. Love is not the oil and I am not the machine. Love is you and here I am. Now. - Jeanette Winterson, The Poetics of Sex

"Aimer, ce n'est pas se regarder l'un l'autre, c'est regarder ensemble dans la même direction." (Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.) -Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

And once again, I get far too distracted to finish up a post and do it justice. But it's a post!

Good evening and welcome to Day 5.

Man, I don't even know where to start when it comes to YT...

Here's one that I just got linked to today:

System of a Down - Chop Suey, Cover, 4 Year Old Drummer - honestly, I'm kind of agog.

And then here's my favourite one from like, the last year:

Do You Wanna Date My Avatar - the cast of The Guild does a music video to promote Season 3 of their webseries. I <3 it. And yes, I have a crush on Felicia Day, as if that wasn't totally predictable.

Here are a couple funny ones:

Crystal Chappell & Jessica Leccia, The Advocate Outtakes - a promo by Crystal Chappell (Olivia on Guiding Light) and Jessica Leccia (Natalia on GL) for The Advocate. It never fails to make me laugh out loud. You don't have to follow GL or Otalia or anything to appreciate this.

Ode to Olivia - a music video tribute to Olivia Spencer on Guiding Light. You don't need to follow the show to appreciate this.

This is possibly the most impressive thing I've seen:

'Star Wars (John Williams Is The Man)' - an a cappella tribute - Seriously. This is amazing. And especially if you're a fan of John Williams' epic movie themes.

I adore this with all my heart:

Canadian, Please - a video made by two Canadians in honour of this past Canada Day. To die for. Relatedly, here are the outtakes from that video.

And finally, just to pimp things out, here's where you can find all the Otalia (Olivia/Natalia) clips:

http://www.youtube.com/user/otaliafan

I highly recommend:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jzlE0Xnrk98
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EyzoJYo52M
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kKzgqpbkA6o
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4vcjwBrxmo

Confessions of love between Olivia and Natalia. Totally worth watching, if only to be amazed that this was being aired on daytime television this past year.

I think that's about it. See you for Day 6.

Hello and welcome to Day 4.

I apologize because this is not going to be as awesome a post as it should be. I just spent an hour troubleshooting my brother's video driver with him over the phone and I still have to jump in the shower because I'm heading downtown to meet up with JB for dinner/coffee/etc. Hopefully being rushed like this will remove my internal editor and allow me to just share some awesome sites with you guys.

Well-known sites:
- MetaFilter. Awesome site, I hit it a dozen times a day. Headlines and news, obscure and cool, flash games, anything can be found here.

- Wikipedia. I'm sure everyone and their father uses this religiously. Even my own father uses Wikipedia. Which is completely mindblowing, to be honest.

- Internet Movie Database. Such a staple in my life, I go to IMDB at least 5-6 times a week. It always drives me crazy to see people I think I recognize from somewhere but can't place them.

Foreign-language sites:
- Le grand dictionnaire terminologique. French/English translation for words that you wouldn't normally find in a dictionary. Like, what's "online chatting" in French? Why it's session de clavardage, according to this site. Huge help for those who are familiar with French but maybe not specific industry terms (how do you say "right-click, Properties" in French? "clic droit, bouton Propriétés"!) in constructing French sentences.

- Garzanti Linguistica. Hands down, the best Italian dictionary out there. Can be Italian/Italian, Italian/English, Italian/French... Fantastic.

Useful/entertaining sites:
- Gmaps Pedometer. Because it's always cool to know how much you walked when you went somewhere and got lost in the neighbouring bourough when trying to cast a vote in a federal election, not that that's ever happened to me, nope, nuh-uh, never.

- xkcd. Great webcomic. I adore it. I'm especially partial to this comic because, well, [livejournal.com profile] drsnicket and I bonded in grade 9 over my Nintendo and Mario Brothers and Dragon Warrior. So I inevitably end up giggling whenever I see that. Updates Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

- Ctrl-Alt-Del. Another webcomic, still geeky, but very gamer-oriented and sometimes it's not all that entertaining to me because I don't play shoot 'em ups. Still, I like the art a lot and I like the characters. Relatedly, you can watch some movies of Tim (the artist) doing the comics over at UStream.

That's all I really have time to share, but I use/visit all those sites regularly.

Day 3.

day 07 | whatever tickles your fancy

As I write this, I'm still on the fence about what book to recommend. I've been deliberating for days. Do I recommend my most recent read? How about my upcoming read? Something I read last year? Something I read ten years ago? Twenty years ago? Do I recommend a part of a series? Do I recommend a standalone? A collection of short stories? An epic tome?

Ten minutes of staring at a mostly blank Semagic window tells me nothing, so I'll just recommend a bunch.

My latest read: Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell. Amazing look at "opportunity" and it's a great sociological view of what our society views as luck, chance and opportunity. Very accessible, easy read that will leave you pondering what you might have missed out on or what you may still be able to take advantage of. Here's a clip on YouTube with Gladwell chatting with Anderson Cooper on Anderson Cooper 360. (I still think Anderson should host The Mole. But anyways.)

A book that's stuck with me: Not a Penny More, Not a Penny Less by Jeffrey Archer. This is not amazing storytelling. This is not amazing writing. This is just a story that's stuck with me through the years and really continues to amuse me. Just a fun paperback, normal fiction, about people being swindled and people getting their money back through interesting methods.

A book that made a huge impact on me: The Wishsong of Shannara by Terry Brooks. A fantasy book, set in Brooks' Shannara universe. Not part of a series, exactly, but fits in with The Sword of Shannara, The Elfstones of Shannara and should be read if you read the four books of The Heritage of Shannara.

A series that I can read over and over again: The Guardians of the Flame by Joel Rosenberg. You start with The Sleeping Dragon, The Sword and the Chain, The Silver Crown and The Heir Apparent and it goes on from there. I've read The Sleeping Dragon easily 20-25 times by now. It's a fantasy series that starts off set in our own universe, following a group of D&D playing college students.

One of the best reads I've had in the last ten years: The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffeneggar. I haven't seen the movie. I don't think I will. Because I do not want this book ruined for me. The book is just superb and I couldn't put it down when I read it.

God, if I thought today was tough, tomorrow's going to be impossible. A site? *A* site? Look for several. :P

From Piazza San Marco in Venice, in June of 2006, some random girl with pigeons all around her. (As a note, you are apparently no longer allowed to feed pigeons in the piazza.)


(click for larger version in a new window)


I have another photo of her looking much more freaked out, but I do like how she smiled at me in this one, which is why I selected it for today. :)

Randomly, I hate how "Piazza San Marco" gets translated into "St. Mark's Square". Seriously. It's Venice. It's Italy. It is not so difficult to say the Italian words! "Pee-ATS-ah"... San... Marco. For real.

Anyways, back tomorrow with a book recommendation, apparently. :)

So today's entry is about sharing a song.

My friend, J, introduced me to Sarah Harmer several years ago. Her album You Were Here is still one of my favourites. But it was one of the songs from when she was in a band called Weeping Tile that I'm going to pimp here. It's called Dogs and Thunder (right-click, save as, please!) from their first album, Eepee and I absolutely adore it.

Let me know how you like it and I'll post another entry tomorrow, I guess. :)

Snagged from [livejournal.com profile] yahtzee68.

List your 10 favourite 'ships and ask your friendlist what trends they see.

I wonder if I even have 10...

1) Olvia Spencer/Natalia Rivera, "Guiding Light"
2) Bianca Montgomery/Maggie Stone, "All My Children"
3) Jean-Luc Picard/Beverly Crusher, "Star Trek: The Next Generation"
4) Jack Bristow/Irina Derevko, "Alias"
5) Sydney Bristow/Michael Vaughn, "Alias"
6) Ted Mosby/Robin Scherbatsky, "How I Met Your Mother"
7) Willow Rosenberg/Tara Maclay, "Buffy The Vampire Slayer"
8) Jin & Sun Kwon, "Lost"
9) Leonard/Penny, "The Big Bang Theory"
10) Bette Porter/Tina Kenard, "The L Word"

Wow, and there are a lot more I could have used. Julian/Jadzia on DS9, Janeway/Seven from Voyager, Kira/Odo from DS9, Xena/Gabrielle from Xena... But those are probably the 10 that I will ALWAYS want together, no matter what. Well, I'm even flexible on #9, but the others... yeah. Not gonna deviate from any of that.

Interestingly, there are only four same-sex couples on the list, but they're all canon. The other six are also all canon. Hm. Is my imagination starting to fritz out? ;)

Anyone notice any fun trends? Snarky remarks about how my top two are soap opera couples will be met with an incredibly long diatribe about the importance of same-sex visibility in daytime television, so not a word out of you, people. ;)

TV meme!

I'm sitting here, it's 3:30 and I'm doing the last half hour of my shift for work. I'm torn between actually wanting work to do (there is none) and just willing it to be 4pm so I can go shower and try to do something fun this evening. It's amazing how the last hour of work on a Friday crawls by, no matter what job you're doing.

I slept for an hour on the 11th floor of the Hall Building. After a Very Bad For Me But So Yummy early dinner, consisting of hot dogs and French fries, I now almost feel human again.

So here's a meme, swiped from [livejournal.com profile] literaryradical.

honestly, are you in love right now?
Nope.

honestly, what color is your underwear?
Grey, today.

honestly, what's on your mind right now?
How I'm not going to sleep well until Thursday night.

honestly, what are you doing right now?
Killing time before my next class that could be spent more productively by perusing teh intarwebs.

honestly, what did you do today?
Let's see... Overslept. Translated an Italian article into English. Retranslated several paragraphs. Edited the whole thing. Missed my bus. Called a cab. Made it to class on time. Learned way too much about the conditional tenses in Italian. Screwed around for an hour. Slept for an hour. Went for food. Ran into JB. Had food. Came back to campus.

honestly, do you think you are attractive?
Eh. I have my moments.

honestly, have you done something bad today?
Well, if you count eating horrifically bad for me hot dogs, then yes. Otherwise, no, I gave up sleep for schoolwork that got done and handed in on time.

honestly, are you jealous of someone right now?
I'm not sure. I think I have it pretty good, right now, to be honest. I've gained a lot of perspective lately

honestly, what makes you happy most of the time?
Being at home, doing something I want to do, with or without someone whose company I enjoy, whether that's watching TV, playing a video game, reading or writing.

honestly, do you bite your nails?
I stopped cold for like, two years, but I still occasionally do so.

honestly, what is your mood right now?
Relaxed and also nervous. Sort of like a really tired nervous, I guess.

honestly, who do you want to see at this very moment?
I wouldn't mind seeing my brother right now, see how he's doing.

honestly, do you have a deep dark secret?
I have several, and there are a few that no one in the universe knows, and I have a few that most everyone knows after spending some time with me.

honestly, do you hate someone right now?
No. I could be justifiably angry at a lot of people, but I don't think I hate anyone.

honestly, who/what do you want to hug right now?
JB. She gives awesome hugs. I got one about an hour ago, though.

honestly, do your wrists hurt?
Nope.

honestly, are you in denial?
What, about my wrists? I'm probably in denial about half a dozen things, to be honest.

honestly, wouldn't you rather be having sex right now?
No, because I'd fall asleep afterwards and then miss my class and BELIEVE me, I'd already be at home if I could afford to miss this class.

honestly, does anyone like you?
At all? Yes. In the "does she like you like you" sense? Don't think so.

honestly, is it going anywhere with them?
Yeah, uh, no.

honestly, did you answer all these questions honestly?
Yep. And that was a lot of "honestly"s just to get to the final question.

5 Questions

Feb. 9th, 2007 01:09 pm
brinshannara: (Default)
[livejournal.com profile] moireach asked me the following five questions. If you'd like me to come up with five questions for you, post a comment. :)

1. If you had to live somewhere besides Montreal, where would it be?

The answer that first comes to mind is Northern Virginia. Just because, you know, been there, done that. I'd know what to expect. But then I'm all... "Uh. Yeah, the US? I think not." And I could never live in Toronto, because the Leafs fans would kill me. Ottawa's too small for me... So... Well, I felt really at home in Scotland, in Edinburgh. Granted, I stood around like a deaf mute because I could hardly understand the accents, but that would change, right? Right? Alternatively, Florence, I think.

2. Who are your three favorite Office characters and why?

Okay, I thought the first question was hard... I guess my favourites are Jim, Pam and Karen. I admit it, I adore Karen. She's funny, she's smart and she's adorable. She won't just sit there, either, she'll ask the questions you don't expect her to ask. "Do you still have feelings for her?" etc. I respect that about her. Jim... is being so silly. I kind of want to smack him upside the head. But then he'll do something like the Altoids with Dwight and OH MY GOD I LOVE HIM ALL DAY LONG. And he's so expressive with his face, it cracks me up. And Pam. Pam... what to say about her? She's so unsure about things and she's so human, she makes mistakes... I just want to hug her all better.

Having said all that, I love the whole cast. As an ensemble, they work beautifully. But I can't say Michael's my favourite, because sometimes I just twitch so much that I just can't even WATCH, and Dwight... I have little fondness for Dwight himself, but his role versus other people -- against Michael, against Jim, against Angela... it's awesome.

3. What's the best movie you've seen in the past year?

I barely saw any movies this year, but I'd have to say Superman Returns was amazing. And I think it would be amazing to anyone, even if they weren't steeped in the story as much as I've been.

4. Why are you still watching Lost when they never answer any of the mysteries?

They kind of do! Sort of. ... okay, not so much, but I'm invested in the characters now. I don't care about the big reveals anymore, not so much. I care about what's happening in the now, and any big reveals are a bonus.

5. Please elaborate on your 'american poetry' userinterest.

I've always had a fondness for American poetry, from Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening to Prufrock. My American Poetry class really helped me to appreciate more American poets and poems (like Plath) and I have a deep affection for some of the poems I was introduced to in the class. :)

I apologize. I have very little to say lately.

Meme from [livejournal.com profile] mtgat and [livejournal.com profile] trexphile.

Make a list of all the characters in your icons. (Although you may have more than one icon of a single character, they only go on the list once.) Alphabetize it. Take the first two people on the list; that's your first pairing. Second two people; second pairing.

Bianca Montgomery / Charlie Pace : I could actually see this. If Bianca weren't gayer than the day is long.

Clark Kent/Superman / Eric Weiss : I could see Weiss falling for Clark or Superman, but not vice-versa. So sue me if I can't picture Superman (even if portrayed by Dean Cain) as being gay.

Erica Kane / Han Solo : Hm. Either Han would win her over like he eventually did Leia, or she would EVISCERATE HIM the first time he disagreed with her.

Hermione Granger / Irina Derevko : Ew. She's definitely old enough to be Hermione's mother. GRANDMOTHER, even.

Jack Bristow / Jack Shepard : All I can say is that would be pretty damn confusing in bed. (And yes, I am aware of the irony regarding my own life with JB, thank you.)

Jin / John Locke : Yep, I can see it. It might even be cute.

Kendall Hart / Lady J : I think Kendall's too straight to date a woman and Lady J is too kickass to take Kendall's games.

Lois Lane / Luke Skywalker : Mmmmm. No. Lois needs someone to sweep her off her feet. "Hi, I'm Luke Skywalker, and I'm here to rescue you" isn't going to cut it.

Maggie Stone / Michael Vaughn : I could definitely see Maggie and Vaughn dating, but not falling in love.

Nadia Santos / Piper Halliwell : No. Just... no.

Princess Leia Organa / Sawyer : Probably the best match of the mismatches. Leia would fall for the rogueish Sawyer.

Shannon Rutherford / Sydney Bristow : Sydney wouldn't put up with Shannon for five seconds.

Tara Maclay / Xena : Tara is such a Gabrielle, and I only just realized it. Yes, yes. Yes.
