if i've ever amused you, or maybe said something nice to you one time that made your day better, or posted a picture of that guy/girl you think is hot, or uploaded something for you or complimented you in some way or...idk, did anything at all that was decent and you feel like doing something for me?

please make a donation to race for hope

if you can even spare a few dollars, it would mean the world to me. i'm signed up as a virtual runner, because the event is taking place in D.C. and i live in new york and i'll actually be in south florida that day. i realize that's kind of lame. i realize that i'm asking for something for nothing. i realize i'm asking you to send in your hard-earned money when the economy is an absolute mess and nobody has anything to spare. and maybe that's stupid of me to ask.

or maybe it's not. i've seen my friends rise to the occasion in a million different ways, for a million different reasons.

i have faith.

hey guys, do me a favor and take this survey?? XD it's quick and painless and it's for a friend of mine.

thank you! ♥

i've been listening to bloc party somewhat obsessively lately for some reason, and i listened to this song like 15x today and it magically unstuck me on some fic plot points that were driving me up the wall, and it also gave me a title for said fic. so, here, have it.
bloc party // i still remember

i, i still remember
how you looked
that afternoon
there was only you
you said "it's just like a full moon"
blood beats faster in our veins
we left our trousers by the canal
and our fingers they almost touched )

i ripped the audio from the bob dylan/ pepsi ad and thought i'd share.

bob dylan & // refresh anthem (forever young)

here's the commercial if you missed it. i thought it was pretty cool, even if is an awfully odd choice imo.

also, budweiser horsey ads: ♥♥♥♥

the hold steady // stuck between stations
there are nights when i think that sal paradise was right.
boys and girls in america have such a sad time together.
sucking off each other at the demonstrations
making sure their makeup’s straight
crushing one another with colossal expectations.
dependent, undisciplined and sleeping late.

she was a really cool kisser and she wasn’t all that strict of a christian.
she was a damn good dancer but she wasn’t all that great of a girlfriend.
he likes the warm feeling but he’s tired of all the dehydration.
most nights are crystal clear
but tonight it’s like he’s stuck between stations
on the radio.

AMAZING. where the fuck have i been?
semisweet: ([cobra] here's my philosophy.)
JUST AN FYI: [ profile] getwellgabriel

it's been pimped on the cobra myspace a few times in the past couple of days, but in case not everyone on my flist is as obsessed with myspace as i am, i thought i'd let you guys know. so, go leave him some love.

(if you have no idea who or what i'm talking about - gabe saporta, the singer for cobra starship, had throat surgery today.)

omg, ok, so i was coming to post this live butch walker album that i promised poor [ profile] wearemany, like, two weeks ago, so let's do that.

butch walker // leavin' the game on luckie street

tracklist. )

anyway, that is why i came on lj before i went to bed, because i was determined to post it before i forget again.

but then pete had to go and post this in a blog, and just. omg! december 16, please happen now.

ps: this picture makes me hot.

semisweet: (fob. his arms her ears.)
this is maybe my favorite song off of butch walker's new album, so you should all check it out, and if you like it, go buy sycamore meadows. ♥

butch walker // here comes the... (feat. p!nk)
here comes the heartache
the move-out day
the excuses for my friends
here comes the reasons i have to justify
it was better in the end
here comes the last time i'm gonna kiss you
the first night sleeping alone
here comes the hardest thing
we've ever known

i seriously cannot stop listening to it.

also, the video for "the weight of her" is SO cute and awesome and fun.

so i was dicking around on myspace while listening to christmas music, and i decided i needed to add some christmas songs to my profile. which i was in the process of doing when i discovered that this song is nowhere to be found on myspace, which is just not ok, so i'm sharing it with you guys.

vienna teng // the atheist christmas carol
It's the season of grace coming out of the void
Where a man is saved by a voice in the distance
It's the season of possible miracle cures
Where hope is currency and death is not the last unknown
Where time begins to fade
And age is welcome home

It's the season of eyes meeting over the noise
And holding fast with sharp realization
It's the season of cold making warmth a divine intervention
You are safe here you know now

Don't forget
Don't forget I love, I love
I love you

It's the season of scars and of wounds in the heart
Of feeling the full weight of our burdens
It's the season of bowing our heads in the wind
And knowing we are not alone in fear
Not alone in the dark

and because it's awesome and if you don't have it you REALLY need it: the pogues // fairytale of new york
It was Christmas Eve babe
In the drunk tank
An old man said to me, won't see another one
And then he sang a song
The Rare Old Mountain Dew
I turned my face away
And dreamed about you

Got on a lucky one
Came in at ten to one
I've got a feeling
This year's for me and you
So Happy Christmas
I love you baby
I can see a better time
When all our dreams come true

They've got cars big as bars
They've got rivers of gold
But the wind goes right through you
It's no place for the old
When you first took my hand
On a cold Christmas Eve
You promised me
Broadway was waiting for me

You were handsome
You were pretty
Queen of New York City
When the band finished playing
They howled out for more
Sinatra was swinging,
All the drunks they were singing
We kissed on a corner
Then danced through the night

The boys of the NYPD choir
Were singing "Galway Bay"
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas day )

ahahaha, new favorite website. why did i not know about this until now?


semisweet: (fob. his arms her ears.)
i've been meaning to pimp this for, like, a week, and i keep forgetting! so, here i go. SUGGESTION: while you're buying david cook's album, you should also buy butch walker's new album! it's so good. he's clever and heartbreaking and utterly brilliant, and nowhere near as popular as he should be.

in november of last year, the house butch was renting in malibu burned down.
I lost everything I've ever owned. Every master of every song I've ever recorded, every piece of recording equipment, guitars, drums and things I've collected over the years, cars, motorcycles, every family memorial, heirloom, picture, and document we ever had. ... Gone. I feel like I finally know the difference between 'going back' and 'going home.'

watch it. love it. buy his album. ♥

this is for [ profile] kueble , who was like "wait, so who are those guys in david cook's band?"

less epic than my usual posts of this nature because i am not as creepily informed about these dudes as i am about DC.

we're the chemists who've found the formula to make your hearts swell and burst. )

ok, so i've had a few people recently ask me for some kind of formal introduction (so to speak) to my boyfriend david cook.

therefore, i give you:

david cook: a primer (sort of). ) is for david cook/david archuleta
-[profile] the_flyboys is for david cook/michael johns

-david's official website
-david's youtube channel (he's got some cute vlogs fyi)

-david cook on myspace
-neal tiemann (lead guitar) on myspace
-andy skib (rhythm guitar/keys) on myspace [and to have heroes, his solo project which is A++]
-joey clement (bass) on myspace
-kyle peek (drums) on myspace

-you should definitely friend [profile] cooktastic 
-you are more than welcome to friend me or just poke through my DC tag at will

MOST IMPORTANTLY, HIS ALBUM WHICH IS CLEVERLY TITLED DAVID COOK COMES OUT ON NOVEMBER 18, 2008. BUY IT. don't download it. don't rip it from somewhere. don't get one of your friends to burn you a copy. buyyyyyyyy ittttttttt. HE IS WORTH YOUR TEN DOLLARS, OKAY?
semisweet: (dcook/neal. teens choose this.)
with the album release almost upon us and saturday night live IMMINENT (omg, two days!) and a friend of mine feeling woeful about the lack of dcook love on her flist, the time seemed ripe for this.

so, i present...


example or something. )

get on it, bbs!

semisweet: (enchanted. how she knows.)
just doing a little round-up of sorts, because whenever i wind up posting any of these things, i always discover that there are people who i don't have added or whatever, and that's sad.

places to stalk me, or: ways to improve my self-worth by following me/being my friend

~david cook official

OCC, old-school edition:

i like how he's almost girlishly pretty there. you don't get girlishly pretty from him very often. plus, fingerless gloves, which, ngh.
semisweet: (kbell. silly hoar.)
so, boots #1 won by a landslide and they arrived today!

hi, my legs are pale. D: anyway, new boots, yay! they're actually quite comfy and i kind of want to wear them now, but it's like 70 degrees out, lol.

i'm going tomorrow to get my hair cut and i think i'm going to dye it red. here's hoping i don't hate it, since i'm leaving for tulsa on friday. :D :D :D

still can't stop listening to ludo. don't sleep on this one, bbs.

also, everyone in the world should have this song, so if you don't, take it: violent femmes - add it up. i've been on a total femmes kick lately. and i was amused (and slightly ashamed) to only recently discover that their self-titled album (with "blister in the sun" and this and assorted other stuff you've probably at least heard) came out in 1982. i remember first learning of their existence through my so-called life and i went and bought the album and i guess i just assumed it was new.

more tv needs to start, so i can stop obsessing over gossip girl. because i really am. although, as someone said (i think in my comments? or in someone's comments? idk), rufus humphrey is no sandy cohen. and i miss me my sandy cohen something fierce. i miss the oc in general, actually. as much as i enjoy gossip girl, and as much as no marissa cooper is a total win for GG, it just doesn't have the heart that the oc (usually) did. that's been my one complaint about GG from the beginning and it's still there.

speaking of trashy teen soaps, how was 90210 last night? better/worse than the first ep? worth watching? i tivo'd fringe (which, as i said at 4am, was awesome) so i missed 90210.

i'm in a blah mood and idk why. i think because i have responsible-type things to do and i can't bring myself to actually get anything done, so i am filled with self-loathing (ok, self-mild-dislike, whatever) and that makes me REALLY not get anything done, and so on and so forth. oh well.

this helps. OCC! :D
