antpower: (Wu Zun - drinking from a straw)
I have done nothing all day today. Unless you count staring at Wu Zun pictures, which, while entertaining isn't really all that productive. I also watched the first few episodes of Nobuta wo Produce, which was awesome. Mainly, though, I just napped.

So, because I have nothing interesting to say, MEMES!!!

Pick a fictional character from a fandom I know and I'll answer the following questions to the best of my abilities.

1) What is your opinion of this character? If you like, explain why you like him/her. Likewise if you dislike the character.
2) Is he/she important to the general plot?
3) Can you relate to this character at all? Do they grip you emotionally?
4) How much do you like the fandom that this character comes from?
5) Do you ship this character with any other character? Or, are you particularly intrigued by their relationship with any other character(s)? (romance-wise or platonic)
6) Is there anything about the character you would change?
7) If you were in the fandom with this character or knew this character in real life, how do you see yourself interacting with him/her? (Would you get along well? Fall in love with? Dislike? Friendly rivalry? etc etc)
8) Does this character make the cut as one of your all time favorites (if you like) or least favorites?
9) Would you hype up this character (if you like) or warn about (if you dislike) to someone whose new to the fandom?
10) Is this character popular with the fanbase?

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 15 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
Step 3: Strike through the songs when someone guesses both artist and title correctly.
Step 4: For those who are guessing -- looking the lyrics up on a search engine is CHEATING!
Step 5: If you like the game post your own journal.

Also, just so I feel a bit less unproductive, I'll write a drabble for the person who guesses the lyric right first, using the line from the song that I used. Fandoms I'll write for are: Naruto, Death Note, Ouran, FMA, Hana Kimi, Supernatural and Doctor Who.

I'll put the lyrics under a cut, because I'm considerate like that XP )

List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're any good, they must be songs you're really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your Live Journal along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they're listening to.

I'll cut this too )

I wanted to upload the songs but my internet is being crazy slow. But if you really want anything, let me know and I will. Also, I'm not going to tag anybody, but do it if you want to!!

So, yesterday I went to the Big Day Out and it was freaking awesome!

We got there about 4pm, because I do have chronic fatigue, and it is a big day :P We wandered around for a while and saw a girl dressed as a panda and another two girls dressed as penguins! They must have been sweltering. Watched a bit of Billy Bragg, then went to get our spot for Arcade Fire. Watched Grinspoon, who were Grinspoony as usual. Phillip wore pretty hair clips and goofy glasses and did silly dances, and they were full of rock, as usual.

Anyway, Arcade Fire OMG! They were... I have no words! EPICALLY BRILLIANT, maybe. The girl, what's her name? Régine Chassagne? I have such a girl-crush on her. She played every instrument on stage and sang in the megaphone and danced around like an idiot and she was wonderful! She wore this pink dress with sparkly things and silver boots and I just want to be her! They had a whole bunch of people on stage, violinists and a brass section and a guy who played football helmets and things, which you'd think would make it a bit novelty, you know, but it didn't, it was just awesome! I was very moved in 'Intervention' and 'Tunnels', because all the crowd were singing along and it was just one of those special moments you have.

I think they were maybe the best band I've ever seen.

Then silverchair were on, so we went to get food. Seriously, Daniel Johns, what have you done to yourself? You used to be so hot and now you look like that guy from that band Everclear in the 90s. And all that rock-posturing is lame. I am disappointed. Anyway, I got some awesome chicken strips, and I couldn't think of that the song they were playing was and neither could the people in the line behind us, so we ended up having a nice little sing-a-long in the food line until we realised it was 'The Greatest View'.

Bjork was next. I don't know, I like Bjork well enough, but her song choice was a bit boring. It was cool when she shot streamers out her arms though. We went to get our place for Rage Against the Machine. A bunch of guys climbed trees, which was funny. Anyway, the crowd got crazy-big and I decided that I needed to sit down and that I would really prefer to see LCD Soundsystem instead, so I left. Getting through the crowd was CRAZY, but everyone was really nice and I met some friendly people on my way. :D

LCD Soundsystem were great. I was really tired and achy, so I sat just outside the Boiler Room and watched all the people dancing and the pretty sparkly lights and mirror balls and screens and whatnot. It was relaxing and perfect. There were these girls outside crazy-dancing like on that Fatboy Slim video, which was entertaining. I didn't realise how great that guy's voice was until he started singing 'New York, I Love You'.

Then I went to see Paul Kelly for a bit, because it seemed like the Aussie thing to do, and then made my way to where I had to meet my sister near the exit. Luckily I was in time to see RATM's encore. 'Killing in the Name Of' was freaking awesome, especially as I was far back enough to see the whole crowd of however many thousand people going crazy, with this dust-mist over them that reflected the stage lights.

When we were leaving everyone was lovely and chatty too. It was such a great atmosphere. All in all, it was the best BDO ever. YAY!

1. [ profile] maegunnbatt is alive and not dead! This makes me the happiest girl in the whole world!

2. 300 is just as awesome as I hoped it would be. What is it about David Wenham's voice that totally pwns me?

3. I am not in love with Cassadaga like I'm in love with Lifted and I'm Wide Awake, it's Morning. But still, if anyone wants me to upload it, just let me know.

4. Went to see The Lemonheads last night. 15 years on and Evan Dando is still the perfect man.

5. Am up to season 4 of Smallville. Was starting to hate Lana less until she climbed all over Jensen. Lois freaking rules though.

6. Have only got one episode of Angel left to watch. Will probably write some sort of meta-y thing when I'm done about the Buffyverse in general and the awesomeness of Christian Kane Spike.

7. Speaking of point #5 and point #6, last night I dreamed I was at the Kryptonian branch of Wolfram & Hart and they were doing experiments on my brain.

8. I miss Sam and Dean.

9. My hair is especially good today.
