[livejournal.com profile] doomsey just told me that these kids were on Metafilter. Whoa...they are incredibly talented. And they've got three years of material on YouTube!!!

Having said that, I think we both agree that them singing "Honky Tonk Woman" was somewhat disturbing.

I had one weird dream last night. I dreamt that someone was hosting a convention, and for whatever reason, I was put in charge of driving random celebrities to and from the airport. I got to meet all of the Beatles, including John Lennon who has been dead for years, and Lady Gaga. I have to say that the meeting John Lennon part was epic. I could use to have more dreams like that....

* This afternoon, I was singing "Defying Gravity" at the top of my lungs while running errands in the car. My lungs said, "Bad [livejournal.com profile] nekosensei, no biscuit for you." Ow ow ow ow ow. Man, that hurt.

* [livejournal.com profile] doomsey suspects the RAM he installed in my laptop is bad because it's given me a kernel panic screen twice recently. Today, it out and out crashed. I told him that if he wants to test the memory-- which takes two to three days-- he should start today since I'm caught up with all of my work. So...I borrowed my old iBook from him so that I could surf the web. Retrieving my computer from the pile o'crap on his desk turned out to be a comedy of errors. He has so many damn wires underneath that desk! I managed to unplug both his computer and his monitor...while he was using them. Yeah, he was really happy with me.

* And I am having power supply fail.

[livejournal.com profile] doomsey: Hand me the power supply.
Me: (starts to hand him the power supply for the iBook)
[livejournal.com profile] doomsey: No, not that one. For the MacBook.
Me: (manages to unplug the wrong cord yet again)
[livejournal.com profile] doomsey: No, the other one.
Me: (finds the correct cord and hands it to him)
[livejournal.com profile] doomsey: Thank you.

* Wow. That was fast. It told [livejournal.com profile] doomsey there was a problem with the memory within the first ten minutes. He's going to try re-seeding it-- taking it out and putting it back in again-- to see if that fixes whatever issues it's having. If it doesn't work, we're going to have to get the manufacturer to replace it.

* It didn't work. The RAM is officially kaputt. [livejournal.com profile] doomsey is going to have to send it back to the manufacturer.

* [livejournal.com profile] doomsey is done checking out my old computer / installing the old memory. Going to hit post and then switch computers.

* This video, called "Epilepsy Dancing," is based on temporal lobe epilepsy in which suffers have a kind of daydream during the episode. I think it's visually stunning. Unfortunately, you have to have a YouTube account to see it; some idiots flagged it because it has OMG BOOBIES! (Link swiped from [livejournal.com profile] willowing)

* Someone on my friend's list is in the middle of a study abroad program in Spain and for one of her Spanish classes, she had to watch a movie based on the novel, La familia de Pascual Duarte by Camilo José Cela. In the movie, the protagonist snaps, killing a dog and horse during his break with reality. And it's not a special effect either. The director had the actor shoot a dog and stab a horse to death on screen. Let me repeat that. They killed a dog and a horse to make this movie. Now, I'm okay with people going hunting to feed themselves and their family, as long as they're using that animal's life to sustain their own, but I don't at all approve of killing animals merely to make an artistic statement. If I had been in this person's place, I would have told the professor that there was no way I could watch the movie without getting upset and, therefore, I wouldn't be coming to class that day. This is one of the rare cases where I would have taken a hit on my grade. I'm just too much of an animal lover to watch something like that. Which brings me to a poll...

[Poll #1542764]

* Raked up some of the snow mold...thatch...whatever you want to call it. And now I've got a nasty blister on one of my hands from all that raking.

* And it looks like my crocuses that I thought were M.I.A this year have finally re-appeared. Going to have to get pictures of them before the flowers fade.

* I wanted to work on turning over my garden this week, but that might get put off so I can start studying for my German midterm.

* Wow...the right-wing in this country has gone completely and utterly bat-shit insane: Sarah Palin posts about not retreating but reloading on her Facebook page and Democratic congressmen who voted for the bill are receiving more threats. I know many of us liberals were ticked off when George W. Bush was president, but were we ever this bad? *shakes head* After this, there is no way in hell you can convince me to vote a Republican for office. If I don't like the Democratic candidate, I'd rather vote Green. (Links swiped from [livejournal.com profile] ginmar and [livejournal.com profile] gehayi)

* And look what we have here. One of the douchebags who is advocating stone throwing. (Link snagged from [livejournal.com profile] ambitious_wench)

* California voters to decide in November whether to legalize pot -- I wonder what the chances are of this actually passing... (Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] ladyfox7oaks for originally posting this)

* In Stephenville, college play featuring gay Jesus stirring emotions -- More douchebaggery. At least one of the actors in this play was disowned by his family after refusing to quit the production. So sad. (Link swiped from [livejournal.com profile] tx_cronopio)

* Okay...now I'm honked off by all the crap that's going down in the news. Time to call it quits and go to bed.

* Okay...I admit it. I was singing in the shower this morning. And the cats...well...they were fighting outside the shower door. Damn cats.

* Hmmm...They don't have a karaoke version of The Secret Garden's "Fine White Horse" do they?

* Hey...if I try out for Lombard Idol this year, they won't let me get away with singing Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" will they? Maybe I can do "All That Jazz?" "White Rabbit" is another possibility. And that's all assuming that they're still going to have a Taste of Lombard this year. The Village of Lombard is short on cash and talking about pulling funding for it.

* It's still really a shame that I can't find "Fine White Horse." I can sing it with the Welsh accent. That would have been kind of impressive.

* And my computer crashed. Thankfully it didn't take my LJ post with it because it autosaved it.

* It's definitely spring. The daffodils are coming up at my in-laws's house. I'm going to have to get pictures when they start blooming.

* Where are my crocuses? They haven't sprouted yet. :(

* On Friday night, [livejournal.com profile] doomsey and I went to Rock Band Night at a friend's house. And I thought parties at our friend James's house were wild. This was crazy because much drunkenness was involved. (I didn't drink much though because I had a cold and I wasn't feeling up to it). One guy showed up with a flask of whiskey. And this was no ordinary whiskey. No, this brand of whiskey was not outlawed during Prohibition because it was used for medicinal purposes. o_O He then proceeded to drink most of the flask of whiskey, occasionally sharing a shot or two with his friends. O_O How this guy avoided alcohol poisoning, I do not know. At any rate, at one point in the evening, he took off his pants to sing a song on Rock Bank. He had apparently threatened to do this before she showed up for the evening and he was making good on his threat. The good thing: he was wearing a pair of card-themed boxer shorts underneath his pants. The bad: He had a boner. O_O!!!! It was very difficult to ignore this last thing as I was playing the drums next to him. By one o'clock in the morning, the whiskey was gone and he was completely blitzed. Just before [livejournal.com profile] doomsey and I left, he whipped out his dick and showed it to whoever was in the room. Well...okay then.

* I've discovered that I can both play the guitar and sing on Rock Band if I a) have both set to easy and b) know the song very well.

* Saturday evening was much more sedate. [livejournal.com profile] doomsey and I went out for all you can eat sushi with some friends. Then, we went back to their place where my friend A. showed me her cat and her pet corn snake named Ernie. Did I mention that snakes were awesome? I would be half tempted to get one, but [livejournal.com profile] doomsey doesn't want any more critters.

* Way behind on reading LJ. Between not feeling good, having work, and having a quiz to prepare for in my German class next week, I haven't been online very much. I wish I could shake this damn cold.

* Tengo un gato en mi cabeza. Nobody believes me. (Video swiped from [livejournal.com profile] slime711)

* This guy does a very good analysis of Tarantino's Inglorious Basterds. And now I have a hankering to watch that movie again. His analysis of Bambi is also supposed to be very good, but I'm holding off on reading it because I haven't seen Bambi in many years and I want to watch it again.

* Okay...hitting post now because my web browser is screwing things up...

* When I got up this morning, [livejournal.com profile] doomsey was listening to annoying anime music that had been written in a classical style. So onto YouTube I go to blast Satsugai from Detroit Metal City at him. Amused, he responded with Sweet Baby from the same anime. This was my second contribution. Make sure you turn up the volume for that last video. Most awesome anime intro ever!

* Okay...now this is...weird. It would be cool if there were some merit to it though. (Swiped from [livejournal.com profile] laurainlimbo

* School used student laptop webcams to spy on them at school and home. Now that's just downright creepy...

* Overall, I think not drinking caffeine is a good thing, but there are some days where I really really miss it. My wagon has been dragging yesterday and today. I could really use a little extra something to kick my ass in gear. Too bad I can't handle stimulants anymore...

* Amanda Palmer has been getting some flak about her new Evelyn Evelyn album; some fans are complaining that it's offensive to disabled people. As for me, I think I'm going to reserve judgment until I hear the album. From what little I've read, Evelyn Evelyn is an album made by a fictitious pair of conjoined twins. Okay...so...her subject matter revolves around disabled twins with a difficult live. What's so offensive about that? What's more important is how she deals with the subject matter in her album. If she's pokes fun at them in her music, then yeah, that's going to be a problem. On the other hand, if she's going to use the album to make a statement about disability and what not, then I don't see what the big deal is. My opinion is that people need to calm the fuck down until the album comes out on March 30th.

* Second day in a row that I took a three mile walk. The temperatures went into the lower 40s, so it was definitely a nice afternoon for a walk. If I'm lucky, maybe I'll get in some time to take another walk tomorrow. Also, this spring I intend to take my bike to a bike repair shop to see if I can get a tune up. It's been sitting unused in my garage for several years now. I think it would be nice if I could get out and start biking again.

* Looks like, if things go well, I'm going to do a LARP that meets once a week. It should be a lot of fun.

* Watching last night's opening ceremony for the Olympics online. Okay...let me get this right. Lichtenstein has an Olympic team but Luxembourg doesn't? And why do I care in the first place? Because some of my ancestors hailed from Luxembourg.

* Okay, some of the special effects they used in the ceremony are amazing. I particularly enjoyed the part with the whales swimming across the stadium floor.

* And they have Loreena Mckennitt singing "Old Ways" for the Montreal portion of the ceremony. WIN!!! I LOVE that song.

* Also love the fiddlers and tap dancers. They're also saying that the creative director for this was messed up on a strong drink called Screetch when he saw fiddlers tap dancing in Newfoundland. During that time, he came up with this segment. I have to approve. And yes, you really can come up with some good creative insight when you're drunk off your ass / stoned off your gourd. The music and dance steps remind me a lot of Irish dance. (Can you say River Dance?) I wonder if you had a lot of Irish/Scottish settlers move into that particular area....

* Hey look! It's the Flying...er...Canadian!

* Hah hah hah! Cauldron fail!

* I'm so glad Chicago didn't win the Olympics in 2016. You thought Illinois was in debt now...

* The Slytherin scarf I'm started several months ago is coming along now that I'm finished crocheting that blanket. After this, I think I'm going to make a matching hat, and then a Ravenclaw hat for [livejournal.com profile] doomsey. Once I'm finished with all those things, I think either I'm going to try my hand at making a shawl or another project that requires intarsia. Either of those projects should be suitably challenging.

* Speaking of knitting and crochet, I really should take a picture of that afghan...

* I am now on the "Ow! My Tooth Hurts" diet. I wonder what I should have for a late lunch. Shoop? (And only a handful of you will get that reference)

* Enh...going to have noodles instead.

* I spent some time reading ahead in my German book yesterday. So...I get the impression that the rules for making masculine and neuter nouns plural are arbitrary. Oy vey!

* Why didn't I have any math teacher like these when I was growing up?

So...am I the only one who thought that was funny? Then again, my sense of humor has always been skewed to the slightly sinister...

* [livejournal.com profile] doomsey bought a new wireless for the house because the one we currently have was being flaky. Then, it started working again, and it was working long enough that [livejournal.com profile] doomsey considered returning it to Amazon when it came. And...I was using my computer last night when it flaked out again. Nope...we're not returning it to Amazon, dooms. Sorry to disappoint.

* Teaser for an animated zombie movie. Oooh...I like! (Swiped from [livejournal.com profile] popfiend)

* I have to stop playing on the computer. It's not very productive. Sheesh!

* Just found out that they closed the restaurant where [livejournal.com profile] doomsey and I got married. So sad. It was a beautiful place-- the grounds were gorgeous and just perfect for an outdoor wedding-- and the food was out of this world. They had a trout farm on the grounds and served fresh trout at dinner.

* (No really...if you try to sing along, they'll both start poking at you. Arwen will go so far as to hiss and bite).

* Oh...and they don't like Queen either. As I said, no taste.

* "Ra Ra Ahh Ahh Ahh Ahh. Ro Ma Ro- Ma Ma Ma. Ga Ga Oh La La..."

* Okay...here's the song in question. Another song to check out is Paparazzi, which has the guy who plays Eric on True Blood in it. Anyhoo, the costumes remind me of stuff that Bowie used to do. That and she's kind of twisted...

* The Dresden Dolls are another amusing group. They consider themselves cabaret punk.

* Boring grading is boring.

* Just got a call from my best friend. The doctors told her she was able to take her baby home today. Yay! Unfortunately, she's not letting anyone except family come over and visit until April because she was told that his immune system is going to be shaky for awhile. She doesn't want him to come down with RSV, which could be life threatening. So...that means I won't be able to give her the baby blanket I made for her until then. Oh well.

Hmm...I should call her up later and find out if it would be okay to drop it off at her mom's house. She can bring it over to her the next time she sees her.

* Shutting the computer off so [livejournal.com profile] doomsey can put memory on it. Must hit post so I don't lose the entire thing. Will edit later.

...and the results are never good. This means that I get to torture you with clips of me singing.

I have to figure out a better way of recording these. What I do is hook up my mic to the computer, and sit near the Karaoke machine with the mic between me and the Karaoke machine. It's a bit awkward as there is some contorting involved, and it's much much easier to sing while standing up. [livejournal.com profile] doomsey seems to think that there's a way to hook up the computer directly to the karaoke machine, and one day he's going to show me.

So...I now bring you "The Rose" as done by Bette Midler and "Memory" from Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats. Also, the pictures I've used in the videos are both ones that I've taken this year.

Singing

Up until this week, I used to think that my voice was not as pretty after the pulmonary embolism. Yesterday, I turned on the Karaoke machine and played around with it. Then, I got it into my head that maybe I should try recording a song or two on my computer. I chose Bette Midler's "The Rose," which is a relatively new song for me. I think I tried singing it once last summer and gave up on it. Anyhow, I recorded it, played it back, and discovered that my voice was not as bad as I thought it was.

Of course, drinking hot tea while screwing around with the Karaoke machine helped too. One of these days I'm going to have to get my hands on some Red Zinger Tea. When I was in high school, a bunch of us used to drink that with honey and lemon juice whenever we had a cold because it was supposed to be good for you voice and it could help you get through a performance.

And I'm sure that taking out the Karaoke machine and practicing every once in a while won't hurt either. I think that's what's hurting me the most, that I don't practice as much as I used to because I'd usually end up getting frustrated and quitting.

Guess song title and artist. No can Google!


1. Lyrics are arranged as complete sentences and are not separated by verse breaks.
2. Title does not appear in printed lyrics.
3. Clue is not the first line of the song. (With one exception).
3. No duplicate artists.

And yes, I geeked out and did more than 30 songs. Deal.


On to the songs:

1. "Suddenly I knew that you'd have to go. Your world was not mine, your eyes told me so. Yet it was there I felt the crossroads of time, and I wondered why."
First Few Lines: "The thundering waves are calling me home to you. The pounding sea is calling me home to you." ("The Old Ways" by Loreena McKennitt. Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] ladyfox7oaks) I love love love this song!


2. "In the paper today, tales of war and of waste, but you turn right over to the t.v. page."
First Few Lines:There is freedom within, there is freedom without. Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup." ("Don't Dream It's Over" by Crowded House. Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] gindaisy)


6. "To think I might not see those eyes, makes it so hard not to cry. And as we say our long goodbye, I nearly do."
First Few Lines: I'll sing it one last time for you, then we really have to go. You've been the only thing that's right in all I've done."


10. "In the shadows of a golden age, a generation waits for dawn."
First Few Lines: Another night in any town. You can hear the thunder of their cry. Ahead of their time. They wonder why."

20. "Rain-dogs howl for the century, A million dollars a stake, As you search for your demi-god, and you fake with a saint."

26. "When you came in, the air went out." (I think this artist is obscure. Just give me the song title)
Big Hint: It's the opening of a TV show.
The clue above was already the opening of the song. Have another part of the song: "I'm the kind to sit up in his room. Heart sick an' eyes filled up with blue." ("Bad Things" by Jaycee Everett. Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] bkwrrm_tx. This is the theme song to "True Blood")

28. "Now all them things that seemed so important, well mister they vanished right into the air. Now I just act like I don't remember. Mary acts like she don't care."

Here it is! The video! As promised!



This is my first attempt at editing videos. I learned how to use imovie as a I went along. Notice how the end is a little bit more sophisticated then the beginning. I always thought video editing was beyond me, but after playing around with it, I discovered that it really wasn't that hard.

Oh...and I tried to use Foreigner's "Cold as Ice" in the background, but stupid YouTube muted it. Many thanks to both YouTube and the recording studio in question for stifling creativity. I ended up going back to the video, removing the original song, and substituting "Comfortably Numb" by Pink Floyd. It kind of works.

Actually, I heard that YouTube is muting a lot of videos lately because it lost a contract with a recording studio. Next time, I'm going to have to do a search for the song I plan to use on YouTube to see if the videos were muted or pulled before I put it in a video.

Okay...I love this song. Seriously, go listen to it. It's called "Duncan" by Paul Simon. I heard it on the radio a month or two ago and loved it. I googled a line I remembered, got the name of the song, and then downloaded it from Itunes. I discovered that it was on the first album he released as a solo artist. At that point, it sounds like Paul Simon hadn't change his style much, and as if he were still writing Simon & Garfunkel songs.

And here's another song from Loreena McKennit that I really enjoy.
