LOL.

Aaaaaaaaaaand I picked up Tales of Symphonia again!!!! I forgot how much I suck at the game. Or how much grinding I should be doing. Note to self: don't skip mobs, you need the XP. BADLY.

Dear Raine, stop wasting heals when I don't need them, and start healing before people actually die. Also stop saying SORRY GUYS when you die. It sounds so insincere. LOL.

Also

You know you're at the EPITOME OF NERDDOM when you start writing notes on a game you're playing. JUST SAYING.

FMLLLLLLLLL 9 and 10 hour shifts all next week.

...QQ.

Had this guy call in who sounded and acted like Shannon. It was weird as hell. He was from AZ but still. Weird. I wondered if he could possibly drag the conversation out any longer. I almost expected a proposal by the end of that call. Lmao.

Still don't know what to do for 'fic.

Sister is making Apple Brownies. IDK who the hell linked me that but all it took was a wellplaced mentioned on my facebook page about it to get her to make them. Oh yeahhhh. 8D

That said, my 3-month-long earaches of crap and death are very likely a part of...

...allergies. Which I thought I had mostly outgrown. From childhood until I was about 20 I had allergies that were so bad it was like walking around with the flu 80% of every year. I ALWAYS had a drippy nose, I was ALWAYS sneezing, and I always felt extremely ill.

Well, damn. I hate nasal sprays with a passion. But if it helps...I guess it's worth it.

Enjoy this pretty song and fabulous viddya. Wish I could trill at all while singing. This dude does it singing falsetto and shit. Not fair, I say.

Two things!

1.) THE UNWRITTEN MEME: Comment with a fandom/pairing, I'll tell you the story I've been dying to write.

2.) This viddya/music. Yay Mama Cass. It's sad she's no longer with us, but at least her voice is still around to enjoy. :D

This is a really good HP viddya. The one line of the song is really good, as well...derp, the one about how their refusing to believe Voldemort is back is risking the lives of more than just one boy-- and how it shows clips of the people who do die in canon. Perfect imo.

Anyway, that said, some of the comments are disturbing. Lol Wizard Rock Bands my ass. I mean, okay, cause they're based off of the HP books/movies, sure. But that doesn't mean they're better or worse than "Muggle" songs. WTF? Are these people serious? That's so...creepily fannish it's disturbing.

PS. Want to see Fire Emblem Bard music now. trollface.jpg

Oh, Alexander Rybak. How did I not know you existed until this week? :( I love all his stuff now. ALL OF IT.

I would just say "cute kid" but it turns out he's my age, so. Lawl. CUTE KID. This song is a really fun one, but the first I found was "Europe's Skies". "Fairy Tale" is fun. "13 Horses" is horribly depressing. The accept is endearing.

H-Holy fuck, this is the greatest thing EVER. Oh man this guy can sing fffff geesh. I really like his voice! I'm not a fan of most music not English (with a list of exceptions including Daniel Balavoine--French 80s singer) but hot damn. I can't even THINK in notes that high.

Also someone at work pointed out that Justin at work looks like Nicholas Cage. This is true. I will think of that every time I see him now. Lulz.

I have been obsessively watching ukulele videos on youtube all day. (Off and on. I think there was an attempt at a nap. I kept having these weird almost-dreams about shit that for some reason I thought was hilarious so I would snort like I was laughing but my body was confused and thought it was dying and I flailed all over the place, waking myself up. :|)

Anyway, my favorite thing about World of Warcraft was (my account is kaboomed for a while, so no WoW for me) the teamwork, and it's what I miss the most about being in a band. Luckily I still get some group effort stuff out of church (the music/singing), but still. Watching groups perform makes me go all ;_; NOSTALGIA!

That said Here's a ukulele orchestra rendition of It's a Heartache. I actually made an AMV for Rose of Versailles to that song, my preferred version is by Trick Pony. (Here it is!

That said, I found all kinds of fascinating covers and stuff today.

This was my favorite. It's just TOO cute, and it's my favorite Carpenter's song! <3333



Not my favorite cover of Take On Me, but upbeat and fun! This guy really gets into it:



-

Also if one more person favorites that old old InuYasha fanfiction I wrote I will weep. Because I know how bad they are.

and

and

and :(

but someone just favorited Parallels so I'm like :D yay

OH YEAH. My sister is as of this evening OFFICIALLY ENGAGED. Wedding for 12/12/12. XD!

THEY GROW UP SO FAST.

Bored, doodled in PaintSAI for a little bit today. Things just got worse the longer I attempted drawing. :P I have a hard time drawing on the computer instead of on paper first. :P

But here, have some stuff to lol at! :P

Two Fire Emblem doodles. )

Shading? Eyes? lips? How the fuck do you draw.

For making your eyes bleed, have this cute cover of Lucky. :D Watch out for random men with sombreros on, though. >_>

So against my better judgment, I have decided that my new ~dream~ is to play the ukulele. Okay, weird, right? But I used to be gifted at music back in the day (QQ) though just with the wrong instrument. Sorry, nobody cares about the clarinets. :(

Since it's been 10 years since I've touched my clarinet, I only have used sheet music to sight-read for singing, so...I can no longer read music very well.

Anyway, I am not a good singer, but the ukulele is so damned cool that you don't have to be great to be awesome while playing it. Which I'm cool with. I mean, I can usually sing "okay" but not "well". So there's that. I can hit notes but it's not like, "YOU NEED TO LISTEN TO HER SING" it's like, "She sings like a vampire" (according to my brother), or maybe like a man. I think my singing is deeper than my sister's boyfriend's. :|

So my sister brought her guitar back with her and I was practicing holding it and stuff, and it's got too wide a neck/it's just too big in general. I don't have small fingers, really-- out of all the women I worked with at Honda, I'd say I had the biggest hands, they told me I had orangutang hands, I mean wtf even-- more like thin and bony and old-looking hands. (That'd be the arthritis lawl.)

So I practiced the simple stuff and God my hands are sore. But since a ukulele is much smaller AND MUCH COOLER I think it's still my dream. I was always super fast on the uptake with music and memorizing music (for solos/concerts) so...-_- and I mean really, who doesn't love this viddya?



^I LOVE this song and admittedly it's amusing with the ukulele and not as serious as the real version is, but holy crap such a good song and so awesome. It inspired me and then I looked up how-to videos on youtube and the ukulele just looks like a ton of fun.

Not sure it's a bright idea because of the arthritis and tendinitis but... :( Want to anyway.

Ah man, Mario Paint. My old love. Of many years ago. Back when I could read music (and I wasn't trying to play this stuff on my clarinet/my brother's saxophone), I was herp-derping about on Mario Paint. So I'm amused by this stuff. And the "Mario Sequencer" stuff.



And others:

-Evolution of Video Games-- short themes from a lot of various old games
-Don't Stop Believin'
-Caramelldansen
-TAKE ON ME BY A-HA <--I love this song, the video, and everything about it.
