haven't done this one in a while.
1. Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

When you see this, post another Buffy quote in your LJ. Let's see how long this can go on.
you're not friends.
you'll never be friends.
you'll be in love 'till it kills you both.
you'll fight and you'll shag and you'll hate each other 'till it makes you quiver, but you'll never be friends.
love isn't brains, children, it's blood. blood screaming inside you to work its will.
i may be love's bitch, but at least i'm man enough to admit it.

faaaaavorite. ♥_♥

reposting from my facebook, because my facebook friends have been somewhat faily. a lot of them are weird artists, tho, sorry. i've been downloading a lot of random stuff lately.

Shuffle songs up on your playlist of choice. Write the first line(s) and have people guess the songs, for prizes and glory. Primarily glory. Really...only glory.

interview meme thing! i was interviewed by [livejournal.com profile] courts. ♥ i'm supposed to offer to interview people who comment on this post, but i'm flaky and i won't end up doing it so i'm not offering. :P

1. If you could only listen to one band/artist for the rest of your life who would you choose?
my instinctive response is to say fall out boy. and it's really hard to NOT say fall out boy, but i couldn't live without 'konstantine' by something corporate. so i'll say andrew mcmahon, gives me something corporate AND jack's mannequin. which is kind of cheating, but OH WELL. XD nah, fuck it. i can't do it. FALL OUT BOY, FINAL ANSWER.

2. What is your ultimate vacation destination?
i've actually been lucky enough to actually visit most of the places i've wanted to see. of places i haven't been yet, for some reason i'm dying to go to tokyo. the place i most want to go back to is paris. i fucking LOVED paris. it was so gorgeous and i just felt very comfortable there immediately. and ironically, as much as you hear about the french not liking americans or maybe not being that friendly, people were so nice to me in paris. nicer than in italy, even. or london. if it wouldn't break my mother's heart (uh, and if i spoke french), i would go live in paris in a heartbeat.

3. You just won the lottery. What's the VERY FIRST thing you are going to buy?
mmmm, materialism. i would like to say the VERY FIRST thing would be tickets to some david fucking cook concerts, but since tour dates still haven't been announced, i'd have to buy something else first. i suspect i would go to nordstrom or macy's and do some major damage in the shoe department, lol.

4. If David Cook could only be slashed with ONE person, who would you choose and why?

i'm sure this surprises exactly no one. as for the why...idk. because they're my favorites and i find the dynamic fascinating, because while david is the frontman and the ~celebrity, neal is clearly the alpha. also, they're rather attractive.

5. What is the best fanfic you have ever read in any fandom and what makes it your favorite?
i'm gonna go with but not the song by [livejournal.com profile] ignipes & [livejournal.com profile] emilyray, posted in [livejournal.com profile] shacklesnchains. it is epic, epic panic at the disco-centric (but including pretty much all of bandom ever) hurt/comfort slave au. sex slaves and boys in cages and angst and intrigue and, like, the cab. it's a ridiculous concept, perfectly executed, well-plotted, and just so good it hurts.

-----------------------------------------------

also, unrelated, but what the fuck, the hold steady is everything i never knew i desperately wanted. why didn't anyone tell me?!?!
semisweet: ([bouh] i love all the poison.)
2008 concerts

Bands seen [that i wanted to -- or at least didn't mind watching --, not suffered through, in approximate order of frequency]: david cook, panic at the disco, the cab, cobra starship, fall out boy, butch walker, jack's mannequin, my chemical romance, conor oberst, gym class heroes, metro station, the academy is..., taking back sunday, motion city soundtrack, phantom planet, alanis morissette, matchbox twenty, the complaints, say anything (it was half a song during warped but fuck it, i'm counting it), to have heroes, bob dylan, the swell season, forever the sickest kids.

Top 5 shows of the year?
01. david cook album release show @ the HRC in times square. (just a special moment for me, idk.)
02. fall out boy album release show @ the nokia theater in times square. (FALL OUT BOY!)
03. my chemical romance @ madison square garden. (epic show plus i had bina!)
04. jack's mannequin @ warped in miami. (glorious.)
05. butch walker @ the blender theater in gramercy. (butch is always perfection.)

Total number of shows? i'm going to guess around 30.

First show of the year? january 17; cobra starship (the really really ridiculously good-looking tour) @ revolution hall in troy, new york.

Last show of the year? december 30; david cook and his band @ jet nightclub (the mirage) in las vegas, nevada.

Drabble it forward: Make a post inviting people to request drabbles in the fandoms you write; any number of commenters you can handle. But the catch is, once someone makes a request, they also have to post the meme, and drabble it forward.

i promise to at least do the first ten. anything beyond that, we'll see. XD

fandoms: david cook (and the rest of his 'verse, so to speak), bandom (anything outside of panic/fob/cobra might be wildly ooc), uh, the office, gossip girl...idk, if you want something else that you know i know, poke at me. crossovers between any of those are totally acceptable. XD

give me a pairing and a prompt (and a rating, if you specifically do/don't want porn) and i will give you 100 words of, hopefully, awesomeness.

semisweet: (fob. his arms her ears.)

doing that "be pete wentz" meme, wherein i put itunes on shuffle and the first lines of twenty songs = a poem, and the first line of the twenty-first song is its title.

the first star i see may not be a star

i show no scars from where i've been
well this is our last goodbye
i want blood, i want blood from you
and it was the final straw

drinkin' wine and thinkin' bliss is on the other side of this
there was a love affair in this building
here in this crowd i'm feelin' all alone
i wanna hear some music now that they're driving us all underground

late dawns and early sunsets
i sit and think about the day that you're gonna die
glamorous indie rock and roll is what i want

admitted at 22, just to get over you
red eyes and tears, no more for you, my love, i fear
september never stays this cold where i come from

yeah there's a method to my madness if i only i could find it
oh boy, if you ever have to let me down
wake up, think fast
i been sleeping with ghosts

the girl can move and she did
well, i guess you left me with some feathers in my hand.

------------

idk, i kind of like it. also, i love this song. if i could get online on my computer and not just my phone, i'd totally post it for you guys.

i'm bored. and it's saturday night, and it's kind of late, so i realize people are probably either out having lives or asleep, but nonetheless, a meme!
1. I'm going to list all the letters of the alphabet.
2. Comment with something for me to talk about that begins with one those letters.
3. One topic per letter. I will add topics to the letters as they appear.
4. You can comment multiple times, but only if the letter you chose hasn't already been taken.
5. I will post a new entry talking about all topics given to me!

1. Stop talking about politics for a moment or two.

2. Post a reasonably-sized picture in your LJ, NOT under a cut tag, of something pleasant, such as an adorable kitten, or a fluffy white cloud, or a bottle of booze. Something that has NOTHING TO DO WITH POLITICS.

3. Include these instructions, and share the love.


WHATEVER, LIKE YOU'RE SURPRISED.
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...

THE DAVID COOK FRIENDING MEME


example or something. )

get on it, bbs!

semisweet: (sinfest. omgbooks.)
Find the closest book.

* Open the book to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST

i went through the usual drill: rolled a joint, cranked up the offspring, opened the window, shoved a towel into the crack at the bottom of the door to avoid smoke seepage, crashed on the bed and sparked up.

anthem of a reluctant prophet; joanne proulx.

lol.
semisweet: (sinfest. too much awesome.)
when you see this, quote veronica mars.
veronica: so, what are you like now?
logan: you know. tortured. ever since i had my heart broken.
veronica: hannah really did do a number on you, huh?
logan: come on, you know i'm not talking about hannah. *pause* i thought our story was epic, you know? you and me.
veronica: ...epic how?
logan: spanning years and continents. lives ruined, bloodshed, EPIC. *pause* but summer's almost here, and we won't see each other at all. and then you leave town...and it's over.
veronica: logan...
logan: i'm sorry. about last summer. if i could do it over...
veronica: come on! ruined lives? bloodshed? you really think a relationship should be that hard?
logan: no one writes songs about the ones that come easy.


SIGH.
semisweet: (p!atd. bden. thinking thoughts.)
my offering for what i have dubbed the "come as you are meme."
* take a picture of yourself right now.
* don't change your clothes, don't fix your hair... just take a picture.
* post that picture with NO editing. (re-size OK)
* post these instructions with your picture


should've picked a ~cuter~ day to do this, but whatevs, you may peep my new highlights! \o/

i've always been lazy, but i think my lethargy has reached critical mass, y'all. i just cannot bring myself to do anything productive. :/

in other news, gossip girl was mostly awesome this week, even if i'm a little sick of lord marcus (not even in a shipper way, just in a...BE MORE INTERESTING way) and fringe wasn't as good as the pilot, but it was definitely good and i was definitely into it and joshua jackson should definitely do me.

i almost bought dirty sexy money on DVD today, except then i remembered how i don't have any money, much less any which is dirty and/or sexy. D:

speaking of not having money, i want to go to this so, so badly, omg. i think tickets are going to be like $150? that's crazy, right? omfg i wanna goooooooo.

also speaking of not having money, i decided i'm getting my next tattoo on october 21. it's her birthday and that seems appropriate.

pete's latest blog made me REALLY miss fall out boy. ;_____;
It all started with some friends and a van
a kick drum inside my ribs
Preaching electric into a microphone stand
Raise your red plastic cup
And Turn the laughter up
We fell asleep in the grass on the summer fest days
You'd never guess I'm still trying to get my head screwed on straight
All us believers still believe

&PETE;

so, a music meme thingie using fall out boy titles.

or, less ridiculously:

or, y'know, this.
