When you see this post, quote from Doctor Who (classic or new series) on your LJ.
From the awesomeness of School Reunion:
"Correctamundo! A word I've never used before, and hopefully never will again..."

[ profile] esmeraldus_neo is runninga  meme propogation experiment. Yall should participate. :)

Brief instructions:
  1. Write a post linking to this one in which you explain the experiment. (All blogs count, be they TypePad, Blogger, MySpace, Facebook, etc.)
  2. Ask your readers to do the same. Beg them. Relate sob stories about poor graduate students in desperate circumstances. Imply I'm one of them. (Do whatever you have to. If that fails, try whatever it takes.)
  3. Ping Techorati.

By the way, now that I have my camera, I could totally play Nadia's tell me what to photograph game, which she completed here.
So! Tell me what you want to see photographed and I shall obey!

So I thought of this as I was bored yesterday night/today morning, having finished reading Dream Country, which is ok but has one really good story (Calliope). Which is creepy and wrong in all the right ways. So, flist, you should do this too, and ask me to upload if you want the songs:

Top Five fucking creepy Songs, in no particular order:
  • Vendetta Red cried Rape on their Date with Destiny- Vendetta Red
  • Tim introduced me to Vendetta Red, for which I am eternally grateful. They're supposed to be screamo or scream punk (yes, laugh at my wit, please) or some such business. But they're awesome good fun. The best lyrics in this song are "Oh Holy Grace, they made love to your face with a boxcutter," which is just the most brilliant description of torture ever.

  • Pictures- Timo Maas featuring Brian Molko
  • Ah, this song makes me happy, because the thought of Brian Molko as some creepy stalker is fun. And porn! "I won't hurt you,/unless you ask me to/hurt you/boy/and take off your clothes." And then he gets all The Picture of Dorian Gray and says "I wanna take pictures of you/boy/You won't age a day/in freeze frame."

  • John Wayne Gacy, Jr.- Sufjan Stevens
  • Hey, for some variety have Sufjan Stevens! Oh songs about serial killers, beautiful and heartbreaking. It's one of my brother's favorite songs, and it just... makes you shiver. In a good way. With my flist being the mad indie rockers you are, I'm sure all of you already know this song and love it, but still:"And on his best behavior/In a dark room on the bed he kissed them all/He'd kill ten thousand people/With a sleight of his hand"

  • A Letter to Dominique- Louis XIV
  • Heh, it's obnoxious and creepy. Actually it seems to be about a suicide, but eeeh. Who doesn't love fake British cock rock?
    Um. Lyrics, now. "Dear Dominique I wrote to tell you you’re delightful/Still I know you want to strangle on a mouth full/Of gasoline or to be tied up and stoned."

  • A Cautionary Song- The Decemberists
  • Hurrah Decemberists! And prostitution! And what your mother does when you're asleep! Really, go read all the lyrics.
    But for you, I shall quote the a creepy bit:"With dirty hands and trousers torn/They grapple 'til she's safe within their keeping/A gag is placed between her lips/To keep her sorry tongue from any speaking, or screaming." That's the cool thing about The Decemberists: consistently brilliant lyrics, even if the song itself is just ok.
How depressing is it that Marilyn Manson didn't even make it onto the list once? That man is all talk and false advertisement, I swear, his songs are all actually about how superficial society is and pop culture revolutions or the commercialization of religion and the conservative backlash against abortion. At best, he radiates darkness and generalized hatred. (But I love him for his sexy voice)
Which makes me think that no self respecting serial killer would be inspired by Manson. Or Rammstein. They haven't got that sophisticated cruelty you need to be a truly successful serial killer.

Hm... this is sort of like [ profile] minervacat 's songs to wake up to, but as my waking up music usually consists of listening to music on my iRiver in the car, I'm more of an "Albums to Wake Up To" kind of girl.

1. Sing Loud, Sing Proud by the Dropkick Murphys. Because waking up at six am was unnatural when we used to live in Pasig City, and listening to Which Side Are You On? made me feel sufficiently socialist for the day.

2. Drunken Lullabies, by Flogging Molly. For the same reason, also because I have a ridiculous amount of love for the song What's Left of the Flag for Me. Are we seeing a trend with liking songs about causes I'm too cynical to believe in in real life?

3. Plans, by Death Cab for Cutie. After we moved to Dasma, my morning music became more of the depressing pop kind. I think it signaled a change in my temperament. But my favorite song on the album is probably Someday You Will be Loved, becaue it's wonderfully sad.

4. More Adventurous, by Rilo Kiley. I love Jenny Lewis. And there is a lot to be said for depressing pop music. A bit morbid that my favorite song is Accidntel Deth, but I love it anyway.

5. Rabbit Fur Coat, by Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins. Mostly because this is the most awesome album ever, and listening to it makes me feel bizarrely and inexplicably evil. I'm going to say You Are What You Love is my favorite song on the album.

Right, after I posted this entry on tea and other things, [ profile] antiscian came up with the brilliant idea of a TEA VIRAL MEME!!!
Which means that all you tea drinkers out there should document, preferably with words and photos, (but haiku, song lyrics and sonnets are also acceptable) your tea-drinking habits.
If you really don't drink tea, but love coffee, document that instead. Coffee is very photogenic.
I suppose we may as well extend this to "How do you take your caffeine?" for those (ahhh!) soft drink fans out there feeling left out.
But! Tea! If you drink it, you must take part! :)

So, this is that interview meme thing. And [ profile] lunaedraconis is interviewing me. If you want, you can ask to be interviewed in the comments! And I will ask you five personal/ridiculous/serious questions and you will have to answer them in your journal. Hurray.

1) What will you major in at MIT? Was it possible that I met you at CPW/were you there?
(Aero/Astro || Mech) && Lit )

2) What happened to make you not buy into the whole Muslim thing?
A somewhat long story. )

3) Where, exactly, do you live? I know it's Indonesia/Malaysia/Singaporeish in that area of the world, but I'm not quite sure!
The text behind this is shorter than the cut. )

4) What's your favourite author and book, besides Neil Gaiman and Good Omens (I'm excepting those because you iconed the best lines in it)?
H2 students- make a wild guess )

5) What do you want to tell me, personally, that you think I ought to know about you?
I still think Hitler was stupid, though. )

Edit: Ok, these will take me a while to get through, so no more requests! :)

Book meme from [ profile] nhw
What happened to  )

Woe. I feel under-read. I'm going to have to read some of those contemporary classics now, like The Poisonwood Bible, Lovely Bones and The Time Traveler's Wife. Also, never reading The Alchemist. Odd how many "romances" there are... Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice, Wurthering Heights and Gone with the Wind that I recognize... all this classic English literature bores me, really. I need more excitement. And to read. Yes.

Book Quote Meme ... mutated
1. Grab the nearest book. The Orwell Reader, edited by Richard H. Rovere
2. Let X be the number on its last numbered page, plus 1. 456+1=457
3. Open the book on page (1234 mod X) + 1. 320+1=321
4. Let Y be the number of sentences on that page, plus 1. (Needs only be counted if it's less than five, really.) More than five. This is George Orwell, come on.
5. Find sentence number (5 mod Y) + 1."He enters upon his job without any pretense of enthusiasm, and his main desire is not, as one might expect, to find a more interesting and useful job, but simply to play cricket." From In Defense of P.G. Wodehouse.
6. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions. Oddly enough, that sentence went almost halfway down the page. Damn verbosity.
7. Don't search around and look for the coolest book you can find. Take the one that's actually next to you.

Name five of life's simple pleasures that you like most, then pick five people to do the same. Try to be original and creative and not to use things that someone else has already used.

1. Reading something absurdly funny. Books, fanfiction, essays... anything that makes me giggle.
2. Long phone conversations. Longer than half an hour, anyway.
3. The feeling right before the end of exam week- that air of concentrated, tense almost-freedom. It's insane. Also, I love exam week in general because school only lasts for four hours!
4. Entering a new, busy city when travelling and losing yourself completely. Feeling anonymous and powerful... it helps if there's a slight breeze and you're in a bookstore.
5. A cup of good tea. Earl Grey, and at just the right temperature... also, with good cake.

LJ Interests meme results

bittersweet romances
Somehow I have a thing for love stories that end sadly. The most pure and beautiful form of love is unrequited- and writing complicated, sad (but not angsty) love stories is something I really like to do. Or imagine doing.
There should be some happiness, though, to make it plausible. And to make it sadder when it ends.

Alas, that is the biggest nice picture of Tenoch that doesn't involve nudity.
