Get it? LITTLE THINGS?! From here.

TOPIC: Beautiful Minutia

This topic comes from the funk queen of the universe [ profile] warriorpoet:

"Gush about a little piece of something you love. Like one shot in a film, or one chord change in a song. Love and appreciation of a meaningful thing on a microscopic level."

I FUCKING LOVE THIS QUESTION. So, so, SO many ways this could go! I love all so many little things in big things that I love.
Edith Massey's lines in my favorite film of all time Polyester, but especially the "au currant!" line! The way Vivien Leigh says "DuBois" when she gives her name to Karl Malden in A Streetcar Named Desire! But no, I'm limiting myself to just one thing. Just one, Benjamin.

You know u curious... )

The Fifty Books Challenge, year three! (Years one, two, and three just in case you're curious.) This was a secondhand find.

1. Reply to this post and I'll assign you a letter.
2. List (and upload, if you feel like it) 5 songs that start with that letter.
3. Post them to your journal with these instructions.FREE MUSIC FTW )

The Rules
1. Put your music player on shuffle
2. The first lines of twenty songs = a poem; the first line of the twenty-first song is the title

I don't have an iPod and 1,626 songs is a lot to load onto WINAMP, so I'm only using Tori songs, which, while still quite a bit, is considerably easier to load. Also, I'm identifying and offering the songs beneath the cut.

In Our Hand, An Old Old Old Thread

break the terror, break the terror, break the terror of the urban spell
coughing from the smoke of a black roof chimney
I'm not in love
not tonight, Josephine
rabbits, plinkty plinkty plink

in one hand dreams a plenty
strange, thought I knew you well
excuse me, but can I be you for awhile
we climbed through the canopy
I'm not sure who's fooling who here

load up on guns and bring your friends
when I come to terms, to terms with this
i knew a boy who would not share his bike
maybe I'm the afterglow
met him in a hotel, met him in a hotel, beneath ground

she's your cocaine, she's got you shavin' your legs
someone's knockin on my kitchen door
don't tell me a woman did this to you
I don't know what you've been playing
I know you know every desperado and Sharp Shooter

Did you guess correctly? Click 'n' see! )

My homemade Clara theme is being retooled since I just got a shitload of new pictures of the once and future IT girl. In the meantime I am enjoying the Tori Amos lyric theme by [Bad username or site: @]. Pretty!
alivemagdolene: (Music! Music! Music!)
This is quite difficult for me, since I have so damn many favorite artists. Also, Tori Amos I consider above and beyond anything.

1. Leave me a casual comment of no particular significance, like a lyric to your current favorite song, your favorite kind of sandwich, or maybe your favorite game. Any remark, meaningless or not.
2. I will respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better.
3. Update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. Include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in your own post.
5. When others respond with a desultory comment, you will ask them five questions.

1. What song or song lyric best describes your outlook on life?

I think Talula by Tori Amos. Or Little Earthquakes. I included the lyrics, just because I like to link things.

2. What is your favorite guest/episode of The Colbert Report?

The first ones that spring to mind are the "Shred-off" from last Christmas and the "Metaphor-off" with Sean Penn. Those were truly teh frickin' awesomesauce. Also, whenever Tim Robbins comes on, since he gets the joke. Jane Fonda is kinda scary.

3. What is your favorite scent?

Hmmm.... lilacs in springtime. Fabreeze "freesia" dryer sheets. The Bath and Body Works "Jasmine Vanilla" lotion, since it's the one vanilla my body chemistry doesn't ruin. And all of the following scents from Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab: O, Bewitched, French Love, Medea, Penitence and Mata Hari (the last one I really have to be in a certain mood).

4. Who is your personal hero?

My dear friend Kare-bear who has the greatest philosophies on life I've ever seen and who has taught me to swear like a long shore man. Holly Golightly since even though she was lost, she was still having a good time. Jon Stewart, because he's the second coming of Christ. And Herbert Kornfeld, but def.

5. Other than Jon or Stephen and our other comedian loves, you else do you enjoy listening to?

That's really the only TV I watch anymore, since the rest is on DVD (or they don't show it and I need to get the DVD), although I will watch Cold Case Files and American Justice on A&E, on the rare occasions they'll show it. And also, because I'm a bad person, I like watching Intervention and telling myself that it's okay to watch since it teaches people that addiction is bad and they get help. Anything else of note (Keith and Anderson) I siphon from YouTube. ^_^

Tori sings a tune not found on any of her albums, take a guess as to who it's about. If you don't want to hear singin'... )FURTHER ADDENDUM: I now will refer to my genitalia as my "mmm-hmm", and you know, deep down (oops) you will, too.

Yo George

April has been the bloodiest month so far in the Iraq war. In that vein, I present this.

I now have all the songs from Tori's as-yet-unreleased album, "American Doll Posse". A song I expected to find really inane, just based on the premise, turns out to be one of my favorites. Tori, I'm sorry I doubted your divinity. Here'z the lyrics, download the song if you can, it's lilty and sad. Click the pic to read a surprisingly astute article (considering it's MTV News) about her regarding this song.


"Yo George"

I salute to you, Commander.
And I sneeze
'Cause I have now
An allergy
To your policies it seems.

Where have we gone wrong, America?
Mr. Lincoln, we can't seem
To find you anywhere out of the millions.
From the deserts
To the mountains
Over prairies
To the shores
Is this just the Madness of King George?
Yo George!
Is this just the Madness of King George?
Yo George!
Well, you have the whole Nation
On all fours....
