Although, I currently have G33k-Chic-uNiQuE as my primary Tumblr account for Journal-esque posts, I decided to create Another-Interweb-Scrapbook, a secondary profile purely for image posting; it’s mostly just for the purposes of sharing images I’ve found on the internet (eg. illustrations, photo’s, gifs, etc.) Although I will also be posting brief journalling comments under the majority of photos (as is traditionally done with a Scrapbook) - It’s my Scrapblog! :D
Hear this… for it is Gooooooood! :p
Alkaline Trio - This Could Be Love (Acoustic)
From the upcoming Damnesia album.
This is a wee public apology to ArissaBeck, my Tumblr Mix Exchange buddy, because I’m basically rubbish. I made her wait around for her Mix package and that’s just not something I take lightly; I’m not usually the kind of person to keep someone waiting unnecessarily *hangs head in shame* So apologies again.
I’ve had a lot going on in recent weeks and regardless of my major enthusiasm for swapping mix CD’s with peoples from out yonder, I didn’t think to prepare myself. Now that I’ve finally got my arse into gear and have made a CD plus cover, etc. (I admittedly did take a longish time over the tracklisting so perhaps I did overthink it *shrugs*) but it shall be on it’s way and will hopefully arrive soon!!
I popped a few other wee gifty things into my parcel too ;p Thanks for the hair barrettes and especially the wee brooches - love the dinosaurs! *grins* I have put the CD aside though because I didn’t want it to influence my decisions about the songs I chose but I’ll be listening to it soon! :D
Thanks for your patience and I hope you enjoy everything :)
Legen… wait for it….
….. (2,500 Danzigs Later)…. dary!
Ahaha! This is awesome!
THE FIRST EVER TUMBLR MIX EXCHANGE!
Here’s how it’ll work:
1. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address, your email address and a link to your tumblr (if you’re comfortable with that). DEADLINE FOR ADMISSION IS APRIL 23RD.
2. Wait while we compile the applicants and pair everyone up!
3. Keep an eye on your email for your partner’s info and instructions.
4. Make your mix and send it out before the deadline! (Mixes should be on a recordable cd or cassette, however keep in mind that not everyone can play cassettes so you would have to discuss this with your partner, and should include some sort of packaging/art. You don’t have to necessarily be an artist. You can make a collage or print out a favorite picture.)
5. Receive a mix from your secret music pal and enjoy.
Just recorded this clip of me singing ‘Saturday Night’ by The Misfits… not sure why *bites lip* just a whim I suppose :)
30 Day Song Challenge - Day Four.
A Song That Makes You Feel Sad.
‘364 Days’ by Murder City Devils
How can this NOT make you feel like crying your wee heart out? This song is anathema. It’s about Santa Claus, he’s stuck by us for years and been a focal point of all our childhoods - he who is ignored and lives a lonely existence until we call on him at that one time of year, when we want him for ourselves, for our slave :( Brilliantly written. It seems to convey an amazing cocktail of bittersweet and melancholic emotions through a filter of despair.
T just put on the Dexter theme (awesomeness) followed by ‘Rest in Peace’ from the Buffy Musical episode *melts* Spike totally used to be number one in my teenage spank-bank… I miss that man :p
30 Day Song Challenge - Day Three.
A Song That Makes You Happy.
‘Wow, I Can Get Sexual Too.’ by Say Anything
Seriously, this song is awesome; it’s catchy as hell, the video is crazy good cause Bemus is all moves and whatnot, plus he gets so tongue in cheek; and hey, Henry Winkler’s in it, so *shrugs* it’s automatically bitchin’.
30 Day Song Challenge - Day Two (Belated).
A Song That Won’t Get Out of Your Head Today (Technically Yesterday).
‘A Lonely Chord’ by Tsunami Bomb
I love this song; there isn’t much more to it than that. I also really love this band, who are sadly no more, and this is my favourite of all their albums; Agent M, really influenced me when I was a teen and was a bit of iconic for me.
30 Day Song Challenge - Day One.
A Song You Like At The Moment.
'Lipstick' by Lemuria
I chose this song because I haven’t listened to them in a wee while and I totally love their ‘Get Better’ album. I’ve had those songs on my mind today and Lipstick seemed to stay with me; it always gives me this bittersweet instinctual feeling, sort of melancholic and nostalgic for something that I can’t entirely connect with. It makes me think of kissing girls but it isn’t sexual, it’s just the warmth and emotion behind it and sometimes the longing. The awareness and admission, the acceptance of the despair, disappointment and emptiness that’s come hand in hand with sexual/romantic/emotional relationships with people within my own gender. Yup, it’s a puzzler.
Not a clue why I’m posting this… suppose I just felt like sharing it - recorded this song with SBM as a warm up, to set levels and such, we didn’t know it was being set-down/recorded though *shrugs* I like that it’s so rough, which for me is strange because I’m a bit of a perfectionist - It’s a Misfits cover and like the original it has a sort of raw grainy sound; I think it turned out okay :)
This Song! Just watched this vid on YouTube - Lullaby, makes me melt and fizz all at the same time…. sooo good. x
I approve!! :D sounds ace, you should post pics when you’re done :p *followed* - Morgue xx
Anberlin - There is a Light that Never Goes Out (Cover - Orig. The Smiths)
Awesome cover and I’d probs say, in my opinion, this is better than the original but *shrugs* no matter either way cause The Smiths brought the tune :D
