soulstar: (Christmas!)

Friday 5 for November 26: Holiday Music

  1. What’s your favorite holiday album?
    Either my two-disc set of Handel’s Messiah, or any album of carols. Puts me properly in the festive mood.
  2. What song’s lyrics, title, or theme best expresses the positive aspects of your general mood at this time of year?
    “I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day”. It just makes me feel Christmassy.
  3. What song’s lyrics, title, or theme best expresses the not-so-positive aspects of your general mood at this time of year?
    Hmm, I don’t know.
  4. What’s your favorite song about a non-December holiday?
    More a season than a holiday, though I associate it with May Day: Summer is a Cumin In
  5. What holiday song makes you want to cover your ears and flee?
    Any cheesy Christmas song that I hear over and over and over… there used to be several, but now that I don’t work in a shop and have to hear them on loop all day long, I’m more tolerant of them all ;-)

soulstar: (Eleven has the policebox)

Today has been a day of variety, which has been nice!  I started out by going up to the Christmas fair for Mum’s church – I got there quite late on, so I helped clear up and carry the remaining stuff back up to the church.  I got a few nice cards and nick knacks for gifts, so that was a worthwhile trip.  Then I walked with Mum back to her house for a drink and then a lift home.

On the way up to Mum’s place, I stopped off and did a geocache that was en route.  It took me a bit longer than I’d planned due to me being disorganised with my stuff, but it was still a speedy one.  Not a micro one this time, but a still small one.  So not big enough to put the travelling monkey into, yet.  Poor monkey!  I’ll move him on soon, by hook or by crook!

After visiting at Mum’s for a while, we came back here and had dinner – stir fry followed by cupcakes!  Then Mum went home and I’ve been knitting and watching Strictly Come Dancing.  I’m still working on the Travelling Woman, but hopefully I’ll be done soon.  Maybe tonight?  Maybe tomorrow.

And then I’ve been playing with – I’ve put a widget linking to my account there in the sidebar, and I think it’s possible to play some tracks directly from here?  I’m not sure, I’m still figuring it out.  That’s not what I’m using it for, anyway.  Mostly I’m listening to the songs my friends have playlisted.  Is that even a word?  Probably not, but I know what I mean, and I’m sure you do too.  Anyway, I thought I’d put the widget up here because in the first place I can, and also because I’m trying to get all my web stuff better linked together.  Integrate my web presence.  Oh how pretentious. ;-)

My little brother is in the local paper this week.  No, not for anything Bad and Wrong.  But for the mini-documentary he did for his degree course, Jedi By The Sea - he was producer and co-editor.  His is the only name given (it actually says him "and four other students"), maybe because he was mostly in charge of sorting it all out - the uni rang him about the paper thing, anyway, and I'm not sure if they did any of the others.  They want to use the film / him / them for the uni prospectus / publicity stuff, too. :-D  Anyway, you should totally all go and watch and have a giggle, and if you can find the time, sign up to the FourDocs site to rate it.

Next year, when they have a proper studio at the uni (it's being built over the summer, apparently), he's intending to do something set in the 70's.  And while quizzing my Mum for set dressing ideas, she realised that as well as having various pairs of curtains and so on still knocking about (and hey, I hope she's still got the light fittings that she only just changed), our lovely lime-green - alright Mum, chartreuse - classic 70's kitchen cabinets are still in use in one of my Dad's sheds at the bottom of the orchard.  Hee!

In other news, I've mainly missed the last few weeks, but I think it's getting better now.  Oh, the joy of getting used to new meds!  And, you know, the old pit of dooooom thing.  Well, bah to that.  Pfft, depression: it's so 1930's.  Or something.  Anyway I'm feeling lots better, just conking out a lot, and as I say, that is improving.  Would be nice if it would hurry up a bit more, but you know.  Such is life!

And in the meantime, I'm binging on podcasts.  So, rec me some?  Good music ones, perhaps, or something you think I might be otherwise interested in?  Are there fandom related ones?  Um?  Help me, flist!  Feeeeeeeeed meeeeeeeeeee (and my mp3 player)!

Finally..... Doctor Who: bweeeeeee!  Life on Mars: BWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!  And there shall be (hopefully) more coherency and detail on at least one of those sometime later.  Yesyes.  But right now, I'm off to knit some more sock.  It's nearly heel time.  I should come back and post some pics of that, too.  Maybe. :-)

Step 1: Put your Media player on random.
Step 2: Post the first line(s) / your favourite lines of the first 20 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly. Guess as many as you can!

My 'top' 20 )

And that actually came out with an interesting mix of things I regularly listen to, and stuff I'd forgotten I even had on here (or have recently downloaded from someone and not listened to properly yet, perhaps *g*)
