  • A fun game.. guess the lyrics!

    11 Jul 2009, 10:45 by xFabby

    The process/rules
    1; Put your MP3 player or whatever on shuffle.
    2; Post the first line from the first 50 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song (I'm skipping foreign languages for the obvious reason.)
    3; Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from. (You must post artist and song, spelling doesn't matter, and taking a guess is always welcomed.)
    4; Strike through the lyrics when someone guesses correctly and put the song and artist under the corresponding lyrics.
    5; Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING! (Cheaters will be SMITED!)


    1) Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band.
    Tiny Dancer - Elton John

    2) Watching the days slip by so fast, knowing our fate has long been cast.

    3) I am an anarchist, an antichrist, an asterisk.
    The Kill - The Dresden Dolls

    4) Wake the fuck up!

    5) Seven AM, the garbage truck beeps as it backs up and I start my day thinking about what I've thrown away.

  • My Perfect Album

    14 Jan 2009, 03:43 by Al_73

    Just what makes the perfect album? Well great songs obviously. Most albums have at least a handful of great songs but an album where there isn't a single skippable track is a rarity. I have a lot of albums that are dear to my heart but even they have their token filler tracks. For a long time, I've been mulling over in my head the question as to just what is my favourite album? Anyone who knows my tastes knows that I always gravitate towards sad songs - I must have a kind of masochistic streak in me. I have an almost endless roll call of songs that make me cry for whatever reason & on my WMP I have a playlist of sad songs that currently numbers about 150 songs & is added to on an almost daily basis. Most of my favourite albums also have at least one song that reduces me to tears, but a waterworks ALBUM is a rarity - where virtually every track is so beautiful but so sad. So needless to say, that the album that I have chosen is almost unremittingly bleak & sad & preoccupied with lost love, regret, death & despair. …

  • #3 - The World Is Sleeping / On Staying Up Past Your Bedtime

    8 Oct 2008, 07:46 by coffeeandcookie

    It's currently 2:34, and I have class at 1030. I'm a very big proponent of sleep. In fact, I recommend to all of my friends that 7 hours of sleep is the perfect amount. I read in Time magazine a while ago that any more than 7 is extraneous, and any more than 8 hours of sleep could be potentially harmful. Or rather, if not harmful per se, then at least counter-productive. It had something to do with metabolism.

    Anyway, I have a sort of odd penchant for music appropriateness in all aspects of my life, specifically though, when it comes to any time after and before, say, 8am. During this time period, my music can't be too wild; the mellower the better. I think the reason for this stems from the fact that, when it's very late, I do my best thinking. And when I think, I tend to get into a sort of zone, and, as Rob says, "I don't want sad bastard music, I just want something I can ignore."

    Currently, the song fitting the bill for this late night excursion into writing land is Brothers on a Hotel Bed. …

  • how I discovered my top 15.

    7 May 2008, 23:38 by EternalExodus

    I like music and I like to write. Deal with it.

    1. Nine Inch Nails
    Back in angsty ol' middle school, all I listened to was Evanescence, Linkin Park (sometimes), and Nightwish (sometimes). When I used to go to Best Buy all the time, I'd see advertisements for the new deluxe version of The Downward Spiral. I never really thought much of them because I didn't know who the hell NIN was, but one day I was sitting on my computer browsing some message board or another and I thought "hey, let's find some NIN". So I did. Opened up LimeWire (yeah yeah) and got a few songs off of Spiral, and I fell in love instantly. For the next few days I tried to piece together the entire Downward Spiral album through LimeWire downloads, and eventually I succeeded. And that's the beginning of my story.
    First Heard: either Closer or Hurt
    Current Favorite: The Four of Us Are Dying, I think

    2. Katatonia
    When I was obsessed with Nightwish, I was talking to someone random I met on the internet and…
