I can't believe I made it to 100. I almost never finish anything I start. :S

Chapter 100 - Your Ex-Lover Is Dead

Three songs in this chapter that I've zipped for you:

Handlebars - The Flobots
Pretend - Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
Your Ex-Lover is Dead - Stars

Leadbelly Songs - Chapter 100

Brigidforest and I went to see BRMC perform here in Toronto a few weeks ago. I don't know about Brigidforest, but I think if I had died there standing four feet in front of Robert Levon Been while he was performing 'Pretend' solo, I probably would have rode Death piggy-back to hell a happy girl. Although Brigidforest walked all the way back to her hotel with Robert's guitar pick in her bra, so I'd say it's a pretty safe bet that she was as enraptured with the performance as I was. ;)

Current Music: Debussy - Clair De Lune

So, as I'm reading the latest chapters of Leadbelly and feeling doom in the pit of my stomach, I wanted to share some Journey lyrics that remind me so much of Faye and Spike (or Faye and Ezekiel?). What do you think?

Separate Ways

Here we stand
Worlds apart, hearts broken in two, two, two
Sleepless nights
Losing ground
I'm reaching for you, you, you

Feelin' that it's gone
Can change your mind
If we can't go on
To survive the tide love divides

Someday love will find you
Break those chains that bind you
One night will remind you
How we touched
And went our separate ways
If he ever hurts you
True love won't desert you
You know I still love you
Though we touched
And went our separate ways

Troubled times
Caught between confusions and pain, pain, pain
Distant eyes
Promises we made were in vain, vain, vain

If you must go, I wish you love
You'll never walk alone
Take care my love
Miss you love

I still love you girl
I really love you girl
And if he ever hurts you
True love won't desert you

Ok, so a friend of mind had these two poems on his website under the title "Life is Bittersweet", and I agreed. So I thought I'd post them here, because they seem on-topic for series and stories, y/n/m?

I'm so bad at online community upkeep. But I'll post because it could very well be that you still have hope in me developing internet etiquette.

Chapter 97 is up.


But who cares?! There's music!

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Need Some Air
The Northern Pikes (from Chapter 96) - Hopes Go Astray
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Killing the Light


I hope you enjoy. :)

Current Music: Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Killing the Light

I haven't done a wallpaper in ages (outside of the mini-manipulation to the left), so I'm a little rusty.


I'm hoping that if you're out there, you'll like it. I'm thinking about doing a Spike-Jet centred one soon.

I'm going to start posting the songs in lumps so the song from the last chapter will be in a folder with the songs from the upcoming chapter (up tonight if I can get off my ass...Or on my ass as the case may be).

Current Music: The Black Keys - Strange Times

New song for a new chapter...

The Gothic Archies - 'The Abandoned Castle of My Soul'


If you haven't heard them before but the vocals sound eerily familiar, it's because The Gothic Archies is yet another band lead by songwriter Stephin Merritt from The Magnetic Fields. He's one of my favourite songwriters of all-time and I quote The Magnetic Fields quite alot in the fanfic. There's something very House of Love-esque about this particular song.

I'd love to know what you think about the song. And I say it often but it bears repeating -- if there's ever a song you're looking for that I've used, or songs by the same artist, let me know and I'll send it off for you.

Current Location: Slow, jerky laptop hell
Current Music: The Magnetic Fields - Drive on, Driver

So I could very possibly be writing to myself because I've neglected this damn thing for so long that everyone has moved onto much, MUCH greener pastures. But I'm back to mow the lawn and post some music and maybe I'll lure someone back to talk to. :)

Music from Chapters 90 - 94 are zipped up in a li'l old folder you can download here...


The only one missing is Hefner's 'The Sad Witch' because the cd is hiding somewhere in the apartment. :)


Current Music: Pete Townshend doing 'Save it for Later'

Two items!

Well, sort of. Four(!) songs and a request of sorts. Quite some time ago, ssg posted the Longpigs song "On and On", which I simply adore. So I went and found another song by the same band, "Lost Myself", which I'm fairly sure hasn't been posted yet, and definitely suits! So, I'm re-posting "On and On" for anyone who didn't get it the first time, and "Lost Myself" in case it hasn't been posted yet. (one of these days, I promise I'll find more upbeat music!)

I'm also posting "Plainsong" by The Cure on the off chance that someone here hasn't heard it yet, and "All the Same" by the Sick Puppies. "All the Same" is newer (or at least, new to the radio down here), and I'm totally in love with it.


Lost Myself

On and On


All the Same

And now my request: if any of you with graphic skills have the time and inclination, I would lovelovelove wallpapers with lyrics from the Longpigs songs and Cowboy Bebop/Leadbelly images. It would be awesome.

Brigid, I'm SO sorry I haven't posted any other music for you yet! But everything I found that made me think of something you'd like in the vein of "Set the Fire to the Third Bar" I got from ssg in the first place!

A lurker unlurks for a moment...

I want to share a gorgeous picture that I came across.  We all know the face...
