Hello, I'm not dead, and neither is my Dreamwidth. I've just been incredibly busy with work and life (lets just say that 2016 wasn't the greatest of years).

But not dead, so that's a plus.

Day 10: A song you never get tired of:

This one is really easy for me. When I start skipping tracks on my mp3 and I'm furious that it just isn't playing anything that I even like and why do I even have all this music on there and I've never liked any of it and everything itches... there are like five songs that I am actually looking for. My beautiful completely impractical but truly beautiful sony walkman mp3 player of yesteryear genuinely knew when I was fastforwarding too much and went to songs it knew I hardly ever fast forwarded, which at the time meant it usually just played me 'jump in my car' and dexy's midnight runners until I calmed down. My new mp3 is stupider than it, so what I do is I load it with six versions of the songs I really like and this way up my chances of hitting them when I need to.

Anyway, this one is the most perfect song of all of them. More perfect even than Jump In My Car by David Hasselhoff, which is saying a lot:

I really liked the first episode of new season scandal. Read more... )

I liked episode 2 of HTGAWM much more than episode 1.

I'm pretty much avoiding new things.

Oh no, I did. I watched Extinct, which people are either avoiding because it's blatantly rubbish, or just because it has Orson Scott Card's name all over it. It's awful. I watched all eight episodes of it. And then, it didn't even end, because what they've done is release eight of ten episodes, but are keeping the last two until a month's time. Because that makes sense. It's about a thing where humans went extinct (alien invasion) and then some of them have been brought back to life by aliens 400 years later, and instead of showing us them coming back and building a community and trying to exist it's set after all that happened and went wrong and now there are just three people who've been brought back yet again, and they are so badly cast if you wanted to cast people who could act, but also they're not very... it's like they're sort of CW levels of acting, but not even CW levels of pretty young people, and they purposefully put a thing in about how the aliens only resurrect humans at the PRIME of their life, so they're all like 25, which is perfect excuses for making a show all about beautiful young people. Maybe they thought they did. It's terrible anyway, but I watched the whole thing imagining how better it would have been if it was Jeremiah, Kurdy and Theo, and had enough money/imagination for like fifty extra characters. It would have been swell.

I bought some 'hair custard' from lush, I didn't actually buy it, I made them give me a little tester pot of it. My hair stinks. It's four days later and it still stinks. It's made it softer and a bit heavier and tidier, but I smell of sickly vanilla and I can't get away. If you want to be like that girl in a book that wafts past people and makes them think of sweets and pastries then buy hair custard. It's horrific, but please yourself.

I'm stuck about what to read, or how to read. (I NEVER LEARNED TO READ) I don't know if I should read something I think looks brilliant, and risk not giving it any heart because it's not 16 volumes long and doesn't have all my favourite people in the world in it, or if I should read something random and nothing like a... you know sorbet? Or that thing you have between courses if you're ridiculous? I don't know any words.

If you go to [personal profile] odannygirl7's post here, there is a very beautiful gif of Cheyenne. Leaning. He has his shirt on. But still everything about him.

I am ill, with maybe a head cold? Is a head cold just a cold? I have every tiredness and ache of a cold but no snot? Is that a head cold? I have that. I keep going to work, but I am good for nothing there. I am good for nothing here. I am good for nothing anyway.

I have a sparkly silver stripe top on.

Day 9: A song that makes you sad

I remembered I was memeing. This isn't an easy easy one for me, pretty much anything makes me sad sometimes, but not very much makes me sad always. I've gone with Save the Night by Melanie, I love her more than you:

If you don't know Melanie I always wonder if any of her songs are a good introduction to Melanie, because I can see how they, and this this one especially, might just seem overly sincere and maybe her whole little girl lost thing comes over badly. But if you know and love Melanie and understand that she just sings sincere songs in her lost in the cruel world voice because she actually believes things, then it's like perfect Melanie, and maybe it's not that sad, but it's one of the saddest songs that exists.

Tumblr nearly killed the part of my brain that thought feminism had a point and might ever achieve anything. That's why I left it.
