    The reason the entry is titled as such is because I am posting an entry after having JUST posted one. Again, this is pretty much pointless.

    My current favorite songs:
    Peach, Plum, Pear
    I'm Yours
    My Manic and I

    The end.
  • birthday presents

    Dez 13 2008, 2h31

    even though my birthday was a century ago (september), i want to pointlessly mention that my brother bought me the following albums:

    Only by the Night
    Till The Sun Turns Black
    Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?

    only by the night is pretty good; not my favorite of the three. it wasn't on my wish list; the cashier suggested it to my brother so he bought it.

    till the sun turns black is something i've wanted for a while. i am absolutely in love with Empty. the entire album is great. touches my little heart. =) ray lamontagne's voice is so soothing.

    hissing fauna, are you the destroyer? is everything you'd expect from of montreal. which is a good thing for me. Heimdalsgate Like A Promethean Curse is what made me want the album in the first place. the album did not disappoint. however, of montreal is not for everybody so.. yeah.

    ps. i realize that i am so not up-to-date in terms of albums and whatnot. but somebody's gotta buy the older stuff, too!!

    okay, i wonder how many people will actually read this entry.
    there are a couple of things i need to say about the hit teen drama. firstly, there will never be another like it. secondly, one of the main reasons why there will never be another like it is the music that accompanies those heart-wrenching moments. *sigh* like Hide And Seek playing when marissa shot trey. or Keep It Together playing when..... i'm not sure but it was during a seth and ryan moment.
    okay i am a sap. i will stop.
    ps. and the subways playing rock and roll queen on the show... great stuff.

  • Jason Castro!

    Mai 10 2008, 14h59

    Okay, I simply had to write an entry about him. I was highly upset that he got voted off, especially since I thought my many multiple votes would somehow keep him in. I hate that the judges were so harsh with him!! In my opinion, he is an excellent singer. I will buy all his albums, because I know there will be a lot. (I hope.) I think he has the potential to become legendary, I really do! Same with Michael Johns. People are just messed up. I think Jason's voice is very soothing. And I don't think you can find many people with the quality of his voice anymore. Justtt saying... If you disagree then BOO to you. =p
  • children of men

    has anybody seen the movie children of men (with clive owen and michael caine, two of the best actors ever, in my opinion)? aside from it being a fantastic film, the soundtrack was PERFECT.
    as a note to myself, and anyone else interested, it consists of the following songs:
    Hush
    Witness
    Tomorrow Never Knows
    Sleepy Shores
    The Court Of The Crimson (King Edit)
    Backward
    Wait
    There Is An Ocean
    Ruby Tuesday
    Money Honey
    Arbeit Macht Frei
    Indian Stomp
    Bring On the Lucie (Freda Peeple)
    Running The World
    that's that. =)
    i also suggest you watch the movie. warning: it might make you cry
