Well, at least in the writing department. I'm re-working a [ profile] xdevilskissx prologue right now and having a nice nostalgia trip with James Bond Themes. Hopefully I can get a good chunk written before my vacation.

Yeah, it's been kind of slow around here. XD

Are there any Touhou remixes that have a Spanish influence? I know they're mixable into just about anything, so I'm curious if anyone has taken them in this direction.

Here's an example (It's a Mega Man remix, but still!):

Merry Christmas to everyone! I hope all of you have a great day filled with family/friends and presents. :D


I give you what is quite possibly the greatest Christmas song of all time. Enjoy!

And now the holiday is complete.

Anything off of Magical Mystery Tour. Seriously.

Pet Shop Boys "Where the Streets Have No Name" comes to mind, and not just because it popped on my iPod while I was typing this. It's just catchier than the U2 version, even though I enjoy the original thoroughly.

I have a few others in mind, but they're more "I like them equally" as opposed to "better".

I just saw the new plot at [ profile] elegycity and signed Venom up for it. I thought about tossing Josuke in, but I'm not sure how the whole thing would work with his Stand ability. We'll see, though. >:3 I can't wait to explore this plot.

On the subject of le Elegy, I've been considering having my boys learn music. Josuke I can kind of see with some kind of percussion instrument. I'm thinking about giving him a set of drums and let him piss off the neighborhood with them. I seriously doubt he has any natural sense of rhythm, so when he discovers that he just might be able to keep a rhythm going, he's gonna be one happy Joestar.

With Venom, it's proving to be a little more difficult. Y'see, I have a recurring theme with my Venoms: vocal talent. It stems back to Trevor (An AU!Venom in [ profile] clairbourn) and his history with choir and performing in talent shows. In [ profile] sieben_rpg, Venom had nightingale attributes, giving him a pleasant voice. I'm debating whether or not to continue the vocal tradition and have Venom learn how to sing or go with something new. The only runner I have is Venom learning either piano or cello. Piano because it would be a good foundation instrument and cello... well...

I have fanart of Venom playing the cello. Not quite sure how that came about, but I'll consider it.

As always, any ideas or feedback are welcome. That said, I am going to wait for the Germany vs. Australia match to start.

dominochan: (huh?!)
I rarely cry period, so it's hard for me to cry over a song. The one that came closest to making me misty-eyed is the Killers' "Sam's Town". It was on the brink of a severe meltdown when that whole album was released. So listening to the song now brings back some bittersweet memories.

Over the hump! 14 Days )
dominochan: (up to no good)
To kick off this brand new decade, here's a meme snatched from a couple of folks on my friend list. :3

Day 01 Your favorite song

The source of my nickname throughout my internet years. I dunno what it is, but it just strikes a deep chord within me. The odd thing is, it has to be this version. I give you "Domino Dancing (Alternative Mix)" by Pet Shop Boys.

29 more days )
dominochan: (faust is CUTE!)
This one is ganked from [ profile] rubberspaceduck

Mmmmm giant time-consuming meme is awesome. )

Whew! That was kinda cool. :D But yes, I am trying to create two playlists at once, and they're leaking into one another. For now, here's the compilation for Faust's weird FST.

Possibly the weirdest of the weird? We shall see... )
dominochan: (yum)
Sharing seven things across the span of a week.

Day 1: A song
Day 2: A picture
Day 3: A book/ebook/fanfic
Day 4: A site
Day 5: A youtube clip
Day 6: A quote
Day 7: Whatever tickles your fancy

I give you Open Up - Leftfield feat. John Lydon

I discovered this tune a couple of years after its release, and it still kicks my ass to this very day.
dominochan: (smexy iron man)
Well, it's been aboot a week, so here are your answers to my music meme from a week before.

long list is long. )
dominochan: (kururu blows you up nao)
With the movie meme going around, I decided to dig up an old music meme I never got the chance to finish. It should be a bit easier for me since I have more songs on my iPorn now.

STEP 01 — Load up all your music in your music player and hit shuffle.
STEP 02 — Post the first line of the first 100 songs that pop up.
STEP 03 — Let everyone take a guess at the artist and song.

I'll put up the answer key in a week or whenever the responses stop coming. I had to fast forward several due to instrumental songs and double shots of the same artist. The 100th song also landed on a song by a local band, one that no one would get outside of local Las Vegans.
dominochan: (yes!)
During my hangings out last night, I managed to find not one, but TWO Street Fighter OSTs at Zia Records. Both were 100% legitimate releases, waaaaay out of print, and at $8.99 a pop, a steal.

On top of that, I made the realization that Venom's entire life story has been written by Depeche Mode. Seriously. I picked up their 1986 release Black Celebration and yeah, that whole CD is totally him. Next to Exciter and Playing the Angel, of course.

Now to get some taggings together before I head out for the day. Later gators!
dominochan: (ditzy venom)
I has a few memes for you guys, the first being a 100-word drabble.

100 Word Muse Meme

1. Pick any of your RP muses
2. Get into the zone, really into their psyche, and write a drabble about the first aspect of them that pops into your head.
3. The drabble must be exactly 100 words. No more, no less.
4. Post it under a cut with the character and the aspect/thing that you wrote the drabble about in your journal
5. Tag 5 other people to write a drabble for one of their muses.

Venom - Acceptance )

Damn, that took me longer than I wanted. I won't worry about tagging, so you guys snatch this meme if you like. :3 SO! Time for a music meme!

❷ Then put your music playlist on shuffle.
