Perish, emo!

A Ruby script is currently making all of my posts from 2006 and earlier friends-only. Enough with my emo rants from the past!

Gig! Gig! Gig!

Incidentally my band (mentioned just one post before this one) are playing at Studio 24 tonight, with Panic Cell, Man of the Hour, and Dog Tired. Come along if you're one of the three people in the world not going to the Amplifico thing :D

We (hastily) recorded some songs and they are online right now on our colour-clash-tastic MySpace. Metal ahoy!

PS: Don't turn off Monstrum because of its yellin' lyrics. Just wind to about 2:45 if you hate that sorta stuff. :)

Let's steal more stuff from glinda_penguin!

Feb. 21st, 2008 | 09:46 pm

Stealing is fun! These are all from my MP3 player.

Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
Step 2: Post the first line(s) from the first 10 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song. (Skip the instrumentals, the remixes and the mashups)
Step 3: Let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly.

  1. Estaba pensando sobreviviendo con mi sister en New Jersey, Ella me dijo que es una vida buena alla, Bien rica bien chevere, Y voy! Puneta!
  2. Why do we do this C. G. and I? Every night vegetables, minds numbed by THC.
  3. It appears to me, quoting alarms, the guillotine smirks, in your house I smothered.
  4. Yeah ma, your dude is back, maybach roof is back, tell the whole world the truth is back. Jay-Z - Change Clothes (baz1860)
  5. Yo, yo, that was our album. We hope you liked our album. We think it was a pretty good album. Futuristic Sex Robotz - Checking Out (tehangelphish)
  6. Do you know where your teenager is at 5 o'clock in the morning? The after hours club. The clubs attract thousands of Chicago young people. Some say they come looking for drugs, dirty dancing, and pounding pounding techno music.* 2manydj's - Hand to Phone (figg)
  7. Along to the station 'bout quarter to three, I ain't misbehavin' but what do I see? Some little schoolgirls a'lookin' at me.**
  8. When I done quit hollerin' baby, I believe I'll shake 'em on down. Led Zeppelin - Hats Off To (Roy) Harper (baz1860)
  9. I'm the next act, waiting in the wings. I'm an animal, trapped in your hot car. Radiohead - All I Need (brokenhut)
  10. There's a darkening sky before me. There's no time to prepare.

* Technically this is a remix but I was never much for stupid rules.

** ULTRA BONUS POINTS available for this one.

This also heralds the end of the last quiz, well done to everyone who got stuff in that (mostly hoopiestfrood but who's counting?). The answers that nobody got were The Lives of Others and The Consequences of Love, which are German and Italian respectively so it's unsurprising that the lines were hard to get.

Stupid film meme thing

Feb. 17th, 2008 | 10:16 pm
music: Björk - In The Musicals

I don't post nearly enough, so here's something pretending to be content (thieved mercilessly from glinda_penguin).

1. Pick your 15 favourite films from IMDB and select a quote from each.
2. Post the quotes here.
3. Make your friends list guess which films the quotes are from.
4. Don't cheat!
5. Post this in your journal.

This isn't going to be my "top 15" since I'm terrible at picking such things. Just 15 I like. Avoiding ones I recognised from before. Quotes verbatim from IMDb so blame them for spelling and whatnot if necessary.

  1. Bad luck doesn't exist. It is just an invention of losers and poors. The Consequences of Love Never guessed!
  2. Y'know that ringing in your ears? That 'eeeeeeeeee'? That's the sound of the ear cells dying, like their swan song. Once it's gone you'll never hear that frequency again. Enjoy it while it lasts. Children of Men (hoopiestfrood)
  3. An innocent prisoner will become more angry by the hour due to the injustice suffered. He will shout and rage. A guilty prisoner becomes more calm and quiet. Or he cries. He knows he's there for a reason. The best way to establish guilt or innocence is non-stop interrogation.* The Lives of Others Never guessed!
  4. I just want to tell you both good luck. We're all counting on you. Airplane! (hoopiestfrood)
  5. What makes you think it was murrderr? Hot Fuzz (hoopiestfrood)
  6. Mother always taught me: "Never eat singing food." The Muppet Christmas Carol (windzswept)
  7. Jimmy was the kind of guy that rooted for bad guys in the movies. Goodfellas (windzswept)
  8. Throw one at me if you want, hash head. I've got all five senses and I slept last night, that puts me six up on the lot of you. Brick (hoopiestfrood)
  9. It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses. The Blues Brothers (hoopiestfrood)
  10. It would not be difficult, Mein Fuhrer. Nuclear reactors could... I'm sorry, Mr. President... nuclear reactors could provide power almost indefinitely. Dr. Strangelove (etc...) (hoopiestfrood)
  11. I just want to tell you both good luck. We're all counting on you. Airplane! (hoopiestfrood)
  12. My warrior woman. My Valkyrie. You'll always be mine, always and never. Never. The Fire, baby. It'll burn us both. It'll kill us both. There's no place in this world for our kind of fire. Always and never. If I have to die for you tonight, I will. Sin City (hoopiestfrood)
  13. And you should see my Harry on Television. We're giving the prizes away. I JUST WANTED TO BE ON THE SHOW. Requiem for a Dream (hoopiestfrood)
  14. Life's funny. To a kid, time always drags. Suddenly you're fifty. All that's left of your childhood... fits in a rusty little box. Amelie (hoopiestfrood)
  15. "My job consists of basically masking my contempt for the assholes in charge, and, at least once a day, retiring to the men's room so I can jerk off while I fantasize about a life that doesn't so closely resemble Hell." American Beauty (brokenhut)

* I really want to pick a different quote for this one but the line I want is the last in the film, and I can't spoil it for people still to see it.

An investor pulled out of my company (unrelated to the company, they were cutting losses from other investments going sour) so I am once more in search of work. Ah well. I am beginning to feel like the Kiss Of Death for companies, but as yet I have done nothing wrong so it's not something I'm going to let annoy me.

In other news, Tom has pointed out that the "Accessibility" link on confused.com is an inline Javascript link. Way to go!
