lady_sarai: (Sing about my feelings)
Hey guys! If I made a playlist that included "Eye of the Tiger", "Flashdance", "Footloose", aaaaaaaand possibly "Bohemian Rhapsody", what other songs should go in it? I mean, of this type. I'm not sure what the category for these songs might be called, other than belt-out-at-the-top-of-your-lungs-or-jump-on-the-bed-to songs. But I want to make this playlist. I just need suggestions. Or I can spend the next ten hours trolling through my iTunes. ;)


While I do that, a meme, from [livejournal.com profile] thistlerose:

The wallpaper meme:

01. Anyone who looks at this entry has to post this meme and their current wallpaper at their LiveJournal. (Psst: you don't really have to!)

02. Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper.

03. Don't change your wallpaper before doing this. The point is to see what you had on.


My background! )
lady_sarai: (Content and happy Cissie (AB))
Snagged this meme from [livejournal.com profile] xenokattz! It's awesome!

List 9-12 songs that would be on the Party Shuffle of your favourite character(s)'s mp3 player. These have to be songs that the CHARACTER would like, not songs you associate with them, unless the two coincide. Give a short explanation why the song is there, eg) favourite band, nostalgic reasons, something someone uploaded as a joke, etc.

Is *anyone* surprised I chose Cissie? )

That was deceptively hard.

lady_sarai: (Christmas ornaments)
Uploaded these songs, so I thought I'd share with everyone. :)

I'd teach my feet to fly... Teacher says a hippo is a vegetarian... The stars are brightly shining... Sweet silver bells... A pair of mittens that were made by your mother... )
lady_sarai: (Mark the witness)
Snagged from [livejournal.com profile] ilyena_sylph--again. ;)

Here's the deal. You need to name 10 -- yes ten -- singers that you would shag, merely because of their voice, male or female. Looks do not enter into this. It doesn't matter if the singer should be ringing bell towers, your concern is their voice only. Give your best 10 picks, put down their names and what bands they're with, and then tag 5 people to do the same.

1. JOSH GROBAN (Okay, so I might have been tempted to put his name 10 times.)
2. Adam Pascal
3. Anthony Rapp
4. Chris Daughtry
5. Rob Thomas (esp. with Matchbox Twenty, as opposed to his solo stuff)
6. James Marsden
7. Billy Joel (what do you mean, he's too old for me?)
8. Jon Bon Jovi
9. Bryan Adams
10. Bart Millard, lead singer of MercyMe


I need more music icons. Maybe Josh Groban.
lady_sarai: (Trans-Siberian Orchestra)
Comment to this post and I'll give you a letter. In your journal, list 10 of your favorite songs that begin with that letter. Then, post in your own, if you see fit.

[livejournal.com profile] ilyena_sylph gave me "G" for guitar. ;) If you'd like any of these, let me know. Feeling supremely lazy, so I didn't bother uploading them.

1. "God Only Knows," The Beach Boys (I adore this song soooo much.)
2. "Good Morning Baltimore," from Hairspray (It's peppy, it makes me smile.)
3. "Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves," Cher (How many social taboos can you fit in one song?)
4. "Goodbye," Anthony Rapp (GAH, so much love.)
5. "Ghost Riders in the Sky," Dave Marshall Band (Ghost Cowboys! C'mon.)
6. "Great Big Stuff," from Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (Ah, materialism at its best!)
7. "Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon," Neil Diamond ("Soon, you'll need a man..." Heee.)
8. "Goodbye Love," from RENT (GAH!! HEARTBREAK. But I love it so.)
9. "Gunning Down Romance," Savage Garden (It gets stuck in my head!)
10. "Gangsta's Paradise," Coolio (Um, yes. Makes me think of "Dangerous Minds," which is a movie I love. Teaching, surprise.)


You know you want to play. ;) (And I will upload songs for those interested.)

ETA: Adding links as I upload.
lady_sarai: (Trans-Siberian Orchestra)
Mom and I were supposed to meet one of her friends at a restaurant that specializes in PIE. PIE, people.

But they are closed on Mondays. Woe! No pie for me!

And iTunes inexplicably decided to delete its library on me!!! I mean, I got the music back in there, as it was all still on my harddrive, but!!

I LOST MY ZILLION AND ONE AWESOME PLAYLISTS!!!! ::weeps:: And my broken iPod can't even help me. As it's broken.

AND I lost my Top 25 Most Played Songs list, wherein "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance" had like a zillion plays and was *so* *close* to being knocked down to number 3 by "Ships" (we're talking like 2 more plays!) and "Ordinary Men Abound" was still sitting pretty at #1 where it's been for like YEARS. And I can't remember where the other ones were!

Right now my most played song is "Without Love" from Hairspray at 2024 plays and "It's Hairspray" at #2 with 19--I have no idea why that one is #2. I blame James Marsden. ALL MY TOP 25 ARE HAIRSPRAY BECAUSE THAT'S ALL I COULD GET TO WORK FOR ABOUT TWO DAYS!

::weeps::

I have to rebuild playlists. I should do that.

...It even ate my "Smart" PLAYLISTS!!! O_O!! MY JOSH GROBAN! MY TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA! MY CHRISTMAS MUSIC! Okay, fine, I can rebuild these, but--OMG MY FRANKENMIX LISTS!!!! O_O ::faints:: ACK!! MY GREY'S ANATOMY PLAYLIST! THAT I UPDATED WITH THE EPISODES FOR I AM ANAL!

.....I clearly need a life less attached to my iTunes.

::facepalm:: Trying to make a "Smart Playlist" of my 80s music gave me 32 songs. Clearly I need to be better about entering complete info for the songs in my library, because when I took TEN HOURS to make my old 80s playlist, it had like 200 songs.


The more I think about it, the more playlists I find myself mourning over. I had a Helga/Salazar playlist I was hanging on to. And Lian's Girl Power mix. And Kon's Soul. Young Justice. OMG, my "Damn Papers Suck My Brains Out" list from college!! And my NaNo. And "Dissonance." GOOD LORD. At least [livejournal.com profile] zoe_chan has our "Love in the Electronic Age" playlist saved.

It is not so easy to make a playlist when your library has 2,639 songs in it. >_< What? I love me my music!!



On the theme of loving music, here is a meme!

Music is good. We all love music. Share the music love!

Reply to this post with a song recommendation; it can be a silly song, an obscure song, a favorite song or just a song you think I'll like. You can reply with just the title and artist information, or (if you really like me) you can upload the song to YouSendIt or MegaUpload and reply with the link! ;)

And of course, once you've commented, post this in your own journal and experience the joy and wonder that is new music!



Also--I will *totally* reciprocate. Last time I did this meme I wound up with some *very* funny songs, courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] alphabet26. =D



...Actually, go ahead--Have a song. "Fett," by Postgirobygget. Yeah, it's Norwegian. I bought this cd in Norway simply because the store was playing this song when I was in there waiting for my aunt to meet me, and it was catchy and pretty and I love the lead singer's voice.

I have absolutely no clue what's being said, as I don't speak Norwegian except to be able to string together some sense in a conversation if the people talking are doing so slowly and clearly. ;) (The family reunion was *fun* that way. >_< Heh.)

But you should snag the song. Cause it's awesome. (I have the rest of the album, too, if you like it and want more. The whole thing is really good, even with the language barrier.) Also, yeah, I may be biased but I think that Norwegian is a really beautiful language to listen to, so here's your chance to hear some. ;)

(Also, I uploaded the "Arsenal" mini and the Batman-and-Arsenal issue for [livejournal.com profile] second_batgirl--if anyone else would like them, let me know, I'll link you.)
lady_sarai: (Trans-Siberian Orchestra)
So, [livejournal.com profile] miakun posted that [livejournal.com profile] katarik had never heard Queen and uploaded a lot of AWESOME songs, but I noticed Bohemian Rhapsody was not in the post, so I offered it. Because a person's existence on this planet is NOT complete until they have heard this song, CLEARLY.

This is how I realized I have 28 Queen songs on my computer. And I spent a bit of time at YouSendIt as a result.

Bohemian Rhapsody BEST. SONG. EVER. OMG, the guitar ALONE will kill you with win. I can pick nothing to quote because it is every kind of win.

Killer Queen Just fun and AWESOME. "Let them eat cake," she says, just like Marie Antoinette.

Innuendo Random trivia: never preformed live, because it's that difficult.

Who Wants To Live Forever?
The Show Must Go On
We Are The Champions
No One But You (Only The Good Die Young)
Another One Bites the Dust
Fat Bottomed Girls

And some songs that are NOT Queen:

ABBA:
Waterloo
Dancing Queen
Mamma Mia
(It's Abba, listen to them and TRY telling me they're not catchy.)

Ace of Base:
Cruel Summer
Don't Turn Around
Beautiful Life

Meat Loaf: (because I can't post Queen without Meat Loaf!)
You Took The Words Right Outta My Mouth
(This song is forever my Summer Song, and my "the summer [livejournal.com profile] zoe_chan got married" song, and my "driving in a thunderstorm at night to get my bridesmaid dress fitted" song, and my "perfect length for the drive to my summer job" song and otherwise my Song Of Win.)
Life Is A Lemon (And I Want My Money Back)
(I love this song for the pessimism, in much the way I love Schadenfreude.)
Paradise By The Dashboard Light
Modern Girl
Bat Out of Hell

Lord help me, but I would be uploading all night if I kept going. Enjoy the peppy, upbeat music and your obligatory flashbacks. ;)
lady_sarai: (Kon's soul)
I discovered this song thanks to [livejournal.com profile] lunatunes and I can NOT stop listening to it. Guh.

The Downeaster "Alexa" by Billy Joel.

Like all the locals here I've had to sell my home
Too proud to leave I work my fingers to the bone
So I could own my Downeaster "Alexa"
And I go where the ocean is deep
There are giants out there in the canyons
And a good captain can't fall asleep

I got bills to pay and children who need clothes
I know there's fish out there, but where God only knows
They say these waters aren't what they used to be
But I got people back on land who count on me

So if you see my Downeaster "Alexa"
And if you work with the rod and the reel
Tell my wife I am trolling Atlantis
And I still have my hands on the wheel


Just... GUH. I can't live in Maine and not appreciate this song. For goodness sake, I pay the extra $15 for the lobster license plate because the money goes to the lobstering/fishing industry. It has been said more than once that what I need is to find me a lobsterman.

You know how some people romanticize farmers and farm life? Must be a side-effect of living in Maine, but I think I do that with fishing/lobstering/island life. That's not to say I don't understand just how HARD a life it is. Maybe that's part of it.

I don't know, but this song is ten kinds of GORGEOUS and kind of heartbreaking.

So, on that theme, some other songs I can't stop listening to this week )

And I made some icons that I figured I may as well upload and let you nab if you like--it was mainly just cropping, so if you want to change them, go ahead. Then show me. ;)

1. 2. 3.
Two more Kon icons, and then some more Roy and Lian icons )

And the continuing saga of The Tree.

Turns out that not only were the THREE trees all ONE tree, but the trunk? TOTALLY on the neighbor's lawn.

We're not holding our breath for him to come over and offer to help pay for the removal, though. Thank goodness for homeowner's insurance, I guess. But the fact that it only fell because the neighbor cut branches on his side? Makes us *oh* so happy.

Check out what the tree did to our house, and look how HUGE the stump is! )

And this is a total grab-bag of a post, isn't it? Something for everyone!

I like American Idol tonight; Jennifer Lopez is fun to watch with the contestants. I do NOT like Chris Richardson, though--he is no Rob Thomas. Hmph.

0_0 Although, WHOA SIMON, what he just said to Haley. I might agree with him, but WOW.

Now, to spend some quality time with Word.

ETA, 9:15: OMG I FLAIL SO DAMN MUCH!!!!!!!!! Dancing with the Stars, you totally just WON MY HEART!

DREW!!!!!! Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy and DREW!!! Oh! Oh! BEST SURPRISE EVER!
lady_sarai: (For the Birds O_O)
A meme! From all over--spell out your name with song titles. (Links are YouSendIt; drop me a note if they expire.)

L: Lonely Hearts Still Beat the Same, The Research

I: I Don't Know You, Kate Havnevik I *love* her voice.

Found out last night that going to dinner at my grandmother's today was a ruse. My aunt (from San Diego) has a business meeting in New York on Monday, and she was coming to Maine last night and staying for the weekend and it was supposed to be a big surprise. But there are no flights coming into Maine yesterday OR today, and the only thing she could get would arrive Sunday evening, which... means she's not coming. So, hmph. Apparently she boarded the plane twice and both times it actually went out on the runway before the airline changed its mind.

So, no dinner at my grandmothers because of the freezing rain, and no surprise visit from my aunt because of the storm. Yay. =P

Now, to write. I guess this storm is good for something.
lady_sarai: (Daddy's Girl)
Is it LJ acting up, or is it the friggin blizzard out there affecting my internet connection? Anyone know?

ETA: Sara, click on the lj status link they give you. It will tell you things like the database IS being wonky and it's not you. >_<

And, because I'm so nice, here is some pretty pretty oh-so-damn pretty music:

Ships, Umbrella

This is in the so-damn-pretty category. Good lord. The instrumental sections? Things of BEAUTY. The subject of this post comes from the lyrics. You may recognize it from Grey's Anatomy, since it was featured pretty heavily in commercials awhile ago.

And just like ships we float through each others' lives
Like the waters of beauty and grace
And one day we dock at the same port
And give rest to our weary legs...


America--it's Josh Groban singing a Paul Simon song. GUH.

"Kathy, I'm lost," I said
though I knew she was sleeping.
"I'm empty and aching and
I don't know why..."
Counting the cars on the New Jersey turnpike
They've come to look for America.


Nowhere Warm Kate Havenik (also featured in an episode of Grey's)

I go nowhere high
Go nowhere warm
Until you're by my side
Your hand in mine
And I've always known
You're like a feather
You go where wind and fire melt together
But I'm sure you're on your way home.
Yes, I'm sure you're on the road.


One more: the acoustic version of 3 am by Matchbox 20. Because everyone knows this song, but this version is so friggin emotional and beautiful. GUH.

And this is the type of playlist I have right now. PRETTY.

I am so going to try and work on my Bruce/Richard epic of massive proportions and angst. Because I think I need to post it so I'm forced to finish it--part one is complete, barring some blockage about the end of chapter one. (Which is, I admit, a significant block when it comes to posting it... since I'd need to post THAT first.)

So the agenda is to get that done and see if maybe I have a volunteer beta-reader? ::whistles innocently::
lady_sarai: (They took my boot!)
Ran into Walmart and I noticed they already have spring and summer clothes. And on MSN's homepage this morning, there was a link to the hottest sandles and wedges for spring.

WTF? Maybe in some other parts of the country it's getting warmer and spring is approaching, but in Maine? NO. And even when spring hits, we have mud season--so sandles and wedges are STUPID choices.

Heck, they're talking about 6-12 inches of snow on Friday. It's not even March. We don't get spring until the last week of April or the first half of May. Seriously. No joke. We've still got two months of winter up here, I don't care what the groundhog said.

Stop torturing me.

Also, I have to squee. My mom and I joined Weight Watchers a month ago this week, and I have lost 13 pounds. This is awesome in a zillion ways.

The one down side? I got a brand new barn coat from LL Bean for Christmas and it's GETTING TOO BIG! I haven't even worn it that much, it's been too cold! O_o

And this is day 2 of not being called to sub. I'm going a little batty. I need a job that's not per diem, that doesn't involve me going to bed at a decent hour and waiting for a phone call at 6 am that doesn't come. However, it makes more sense resume-wise for me to do this than to get a job that's not in teaching. Oi.


And then, I have to say that putting my iTunes on random is just an exercise in proving that I a)have no taste in music but I love it, b)have the most random and odd assortment ever, and c)have no idea where half of this stuff came from. But, I mean, how the heck does one explain having Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport on one's harddrive? Or anything from The Partridge Family?

Also, I squeaked when it played Battle of New Orleans, because Squeeee! War of 1812! Andrew Jackson! Gators! Oh, geek that I am. I would so love to do a whole history unit using songs like this and We Didn't Start the Fire or similar songs. Dude, Waterloo's an Abba song that's not about Waterloo, but I'd use it because if you don't know what the hell Waterloo is the song makes no sense. ...Right?

Speaking of "Waterloo," I confess to having an embarrassing fondness for ABBA. ::bops around::

But I think Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport wins for cracktastic reality-punching power. Because WTF and where did that come from? How do I have that?! If I still lived with Steph, I'd play it and laugh hysterically and she'd worry about whether she should have me committed again and then I'd play it for her and it would wind up being one of our drinking songs, because it's THAT cracktastic. (Also, thank you Wikipedia for telling me that the Wiggles put out a new version of this in 2005. This does not make me feel ANY better.)

Dude. Listening to Battle of New Orleans... I think they used a gator as a cannon. I'm disturbed now. O_o

And I have You Don't Mess Around With Jim which is notable for the lyrics "You don't tug on Superman's cape, you don't spit into the wind, you don't pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger and you don't mess around with Jim!" I'd be more frightened to tug on Batman's cape or try to take his mask off. THAT would get you maimed.

I just made my mother squeal when I played Mercedez Benz for her. She went "JANICE!" My father loved Janice Joplin, apparently.

Hey, I never claimed to be a SNOB about my music. I AM the one everyone in college came to for the musical crack.

I think the subject of this post is highly appropriate. Oh, music, I love you.
lady_sarai: (They took my boot!)
Okay, so I decided that I would force myself into a good mood by lounging around, eating chocolate, reading (good!) fic, and listening to music on headphones played far too loudly.

I made good music choices, btw.

Which means that [livejournal.com profile] three_nails meme is a good one for me to snag. ;)

List seven songs you are into right now, no matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good but they must be songs you're really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your LiveJournal along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they're listening to.

I should note that I made a playlist of all my music from the 90s and then I dwindled it in half and it's still about 9 hours long, but that's what I've been listening to, so, be prepared for some flashback power. Also, remember the above note on making myself smile. Some of these are here for the crack factor.

1. Livin', Bon Jovi
I have to confess to trying very hard to NOT include 7 Bon Jovi songs on this list. ;) I seem to be on a Bon Jovi kick.
2. The Way, Fastball
The tune is catchy and upbeat, so even if you know the story behind the song, it's still fun.
3. Devil Went Down To Georgia, Charlie Daniels Band
FIDDLES.
4. It's Tough To Be A God, from The Road to El Dorado
It so is. (NOT Elton John's version--this has Kevin Kline!)
5. If You Want It To Be Good, Girl (Get Yourself a Bad Boy), Backstreet Boys
I did warn you about the crack, but just TRY not smiling at this song! It sends me into GAILS of giggles Every Damn Time.
6. Smooth, Rob Thomas and Santana
Is it wrong that this song ALWAYS makes me think of Gambit? I'm from the bayou. You hear my rhythm on the radio. You feel the turning of the world, so soft and slow, turning you round and round. Yes, yes, we do.
7. Cruel to be Kind, Letters to Cleo
It makes me bop my head around and think of 10 Things I Hate About You and who doesn't love that movie?

All YSI links. If they expire, ask nicely. ;)

Also, I figure I owe my flist some not-so-much-with-the-angst posting, and I'd rather not go to bed with a migraine again. Apparently crying All Day Long induces migraines. Who'da thunk?

I totally had the hardest time trying to limit that to 7 songs. Really. (My "90s music is made of WIN" playlist is 130 songs--this being the halved version.)

So, ♥ to my flist for putting up with my moodiness lately.

Also, today's [livejournal.com profile] fannish5: Name five characters that you identify with the most.

Cutting to spare your flist. Cause I'm nice that way. )

I might be able to write tonight. That'd be nice.

(Using my Jane icon because she totally almost made it onto this list, because she kicks ten kinds of ass, and she loves animals and learning and she teaches and the monkeys took her boot! Oh, Jane. ♥ "I was SAVED! By a flying, wild man in a loin cloth!" "Loin cloth, good lord." "And DADDY! They TOOK MY BOOT!") /fangirling.
lady_sarai: (Old School Love)
Horridly late, I know. But whatever. I haven't done a Frankenmix since September and this CLEARLY needed to be remedied.

So, I present my Ideal Romantic Comedy Soundtrack.

EtA: [livejournal.com profile] scribophile is a bad influence. Instead of writing more gay sex, I made a zip file of my Frankenmix. It's here, if you'd like. :) NOW for the writing. Really.

An Old Fashioned Love Song )



And, seriously, I made a major, major, MAJOR mistake yesterday by finishing Twilight and then, when my internet was down, starting New Moon. Which so distressed me that I then freaked and did something I HATE doing, which is SKIM so I could read a quickly as possible and make sure everything turned out right in the end. Because I was furious and upset and OMG. Can nothing go smoothly? I mean, I never loved Romeo and Juliet because I got impatient with them and their miscommunication and was not as emotionally invested in their love story as I am in Edward and Bella's. So. I cheated and now will have to re-read because I am not sure I remember the whole middle section at ALL. I will make a post sometime when I've reread both these books. (Also, again I say, Edward. I ♥ you, you melodramatic drama queen. Or king. Whatever.)

And now I am all flaily and I CRIED (very seriously) and dammit. I love Edward and it's not fair. I will NOT get sucked in and obsessive about these books right now. February, maybe. Not NOW, when I've been doing so well with my Bruce/Richard drama.

This is seriously causing flailing on my part because Bruce and Richard are not a) meant to be together forever, omgtheirloveissoconfoundedlyperfect!. No, it's more like omgtheirloveissotoxic!whatareyoutwodoingtoeachother?! And b) neither of them are vampires.

Please don't make my brain hurt by suggesting that the latter is possible. I know Bruce is Batman, but really.

Maybe it will help if I go reread that sex scene I wrote.

ETA: Tread carefully in the comments; some not-terribly-specific-but-potentially-spoileriffic discussion of Twilight and New Moon happening there. Mostly, it's fangirlish squealing. But still. Walk with care.
lady_sarai: (Bruce/Richard)
So it's been an interesting day. I've spent a few hours making a playlist for this epic drama of a plot bunny, and earlier I broke my LJ with [livejournal.com profile] xenokattz again. She noted that we had only done this 3 times and well, clearly that had to be remedied. Make this broken LJ 4.

We also created the Broken Down LJ cocktail. Which, had I any rum, would be made of yum. (HA! I rhymed.) Oh, why is the rum always gone? [/bad Jack Sparrow joke.]

And then I had fun with the playlist thing. I even put the songs in some kind of chronological order! Go me.

I should have started running a long, long time ago. )

And with that, it's time for bed. That was fun, though.

Have a Happy New Years, everyone! :)

Also, I would have made a pretty banner-type cd-cover thingy for this, but I'm not feeling very talented in Photoshop. ::Sigh:: If anyone felt like playing with pictures of James Marsden and Christian Bale, though... :) I will be working on an image for this epic, after all.
lady_sarai: (Sunset on the water)
First, because I've been asked, this is the bridesmaid dress I'm wearing next June-ish for Steph's wedding. It's rather pretty, and I hope it will still look pretty when I wear it. ;) It's Royal Blue.

Also, for [livejournal.com profile] aradiachiba, this is the song I was telling you about. It's called "If We are the Body," by Casting Crowns. I love it because it's a Christian group calling Christians out on the hypocracy we were talking about.

Ahoy the lyrics! )

And for anyone else (especially [livejournal.com profile] zoe_chan), I offer Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy, as sung by ANTHONY RAPP and someone else.

O_O I don't care if it's not even October yet, Anthony Rapp gets special permission to sing Christmas carols any damn time he wants.

I have unfounded anxiety again. Ugh.

Ariel, was there anything else I was supposed to put here? I can't remember. ;)
lady_sarai: (Sunset on the water)
Just a day shy of actually meeting the Frankenmix deadline this month! Guh. I tried?

GASP! I made the deadline! I misread the 25th as the 23rd! Go me! =D (And go here for the rest of this month's mixes.

September Frankenmix! )

Now, off to either read or write or play in Photoshop. Although I have a stack of papers a mile high to grade. Hmm.

Also, A Very Happy (slightly belated) Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] minisinoo!

I need a music icon if I'm going to do this every month. Which is the plan.
lady_sarai: (Old School Love)
Um, so, back in July I posted this fanmix meme.

I kinda sorta totally forgot to post the rest of the mixes after I posted the Harry/Ginny and Hermione/Snape ones.

So, erm... oops?

(Also, don't forget my August Frankenmix!)

For [livejournal.com profile] scribophile, who requested Tonks.

Like the Harry/Ginny mix, I couldn't seem to stop at one mix. Heh. So, Tonks turned into Remus/Tonks, and then Remus needed one of his own, too.

So there you are.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Tonks (and Remus) fanmix(es) behind this cut! )

And [livejournal.com profile] zoe_chan asked for a mix for Mac and Ripley. Sorry, dear, no pretty cover for you, as... well, I was lazy.

=P (I figured you'd forgive me, as you will also enjoy the Tonks, Remus and Tonks/Remus mixes. ;) Hee!)

Mac and Ripley mix! )

So, there we are. I hope you love them, girls! ♥! And that you forgive the lateness. Oops.
lady_sarai: (Sunset on the water)
Cause I have so much love for these things, even if I totally miss the deadline. =D And OMG, is it really September already?!

August's Frankenmix )

Also, apologies. My default player is iTunes, and I can't remember now which song is which file type. =P Heh. There's always Limewire. I mean... check the iTunes store.
lady_sarai: (Cary Grant)
OMG, the Frankenmix is back. And technically, there's been a new one every month.

How have I not known this?! Come on, really, now.

::headdesk::

I fail. And I should so be doing housework, which is why my Frankenmix isn't being posted right now. See? Sara's a good girl.

Oh, shut up, I am.

[livejournal.com profile] zoe_chan and I wrote 4 pages of the Founderfic of DOOOOM and sleeping dragons last night. Hopefully will finish tonight. ::nods::

All right, time to vacuum. Or do dishes. Or both. =P


Also, there was a Cary Grant movie marathon on Saturday on Turner Classic Movies and we recorded them all and I am in something like heaven.
lady_sarai: (HG)
Beginning with [livejournal.com profile] aradiachiba's request for "Ginny Weasley or Harry/Ginny"...

Well, I sort of did both and then made one for Harry, too. He felt left out. (Of course, you could just say I made three Harry/Ginny mixes and call it good, too. ;) Heh.)

Also, err... much more than 3-5 songs. Nothing mini about this. I got into it. I love me my H/G.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Follow the cut for several sunlit days... )

And then [livejournal.com profile] arnica tried to give me a heart attack or something and requested Severus Snape/Hermione Granger.

I apologize for no fancy banner thingy, but it might have broken me to make one. ;)

Snape/Hermione mini-mix for Arnica )
