This is gonna have to be my new tradition. I also did 2009 and 2011.

Seems to me now that the dreams we had before are all dead, nothing more than confetti on the floor )

Ew I ended it on a sour note. Well this has been kind of a sour year. I mean for other people I guess it would be a fine year (minus nearly dying and finding out your friends don't care about you) but to fill out this quiz I was deleting my answers from LAST year when I had become the world's best groupie and recently been deflowered by my then-celebrity crush and followed that up with three first dates in one weekend, so like... deleting that and throwing in how stupid this year as been made me crankier and crankier.

Let's hope next year I'll be able to delete these answers and fill in something a lot perkier.




How to explain what just happened? Perhaps it is best we start with the EPIC video clips Anna and I found today.

Even if you completely ignore all my rambling about Mozart l'Opéra Rock, don't speak a word of French, and don't know who Salieri was, you must watch this.

The following clip I *think* is the first time Salieri heard an opera of Mozart's. Like this but with a rock band. He's super-duper jealous because Mozart is awesome without even trying and Salieri bangs his head against his harpsichord all day and comes up with one measure of mediocrity. The skanky dancers seem to symbolise the music itself. Every once in a while the camera pans up and you see Mozart above, lit in green, conducting the opera. At the end Mozart's diva opera chick joins in and makes the song even epic-er than it is on the CD.

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING ABOUT THIS CLIP: right around 2:10 Salieri makes a noise. This noise is the most WTF-y and wonderful noise I have ever heard in my life. It's on the CD and I've been imitating it goofily in the car all summer, but never once did I imagine that a) it would be in the live show and b) it was made by SALIERI HIMSELF. Watch it.

From that noise the ridiculousness began.

I made the wrong wish at 11:11 )

By the time I stopped laughing at that I had tears in my eyes.

Anyway, under the next cut are more videos of Mozart l'Opéra Rock being live and awesome. Most importantly of all is this new clip of l'Assasymphonie. Because SALIERI MAKES THE NOISE. This noise has never been a part of this song. Even on the CD it is in Le Bien qui fait mal. But I guess that day he just decided it should happen here. Also, he seems to be trying to slit his wrists with a baton. Seriously, tell me if I'm seeing that wrong. I'm pretty sure I'm not.

I now desperately want to see this live. DESPERATELY. )

While I was typing this Kat entered the room with a very serious face and sat down next to me to say, "If Florent insists on calling himself Flo, which is kind of a girl's name, do you think it he was really Salieri he would call himself Sal?" to which I replied "Well, technically Salieri's name would be Antonio." Her reply was, "Anne, then?" And I said "Well, I guess I'm just glad Mikelangelo doesn't call himself Mik. Or Wolf. Or Moz." She nodded gravely and tiptoed out of the room.

This is my life.
Yesterday's Simming was so beautiful that I can't not report upon it. I am SO GLAD they still live.

In which four men have babies. )

I want to go over to the Vampire household and turn Claudia into an actual vampire and leave her out in the sun...


Apr. 1st, 2009 01:36 am

The Kamaras family: Death, Máté, Herbert, The Narrator, and Elisabeth.
I am rather in love with Herbert.

The Vampire Family: Akasha, Lestat, Louis, Armand, Daniel, Mojo, and Claudia.
Lestat is tan because I'm on the fourth book. Louis is permanently sad-looking, and Claudia is wearing Sophie's old dress.
Oh, and yes, Claudia is officially Louis and Lestat's daughter.

Please don't ask me how much homework I haven't done yet.
So, Leigh was asking for this link and because of that I will love her forever.  :D
Iz mah "novel"!  Warning: iz bad.  Will be better someday.

Also, since Howard Rice apparently SUES people who write fanfiction (WTF Howard Rice?!?) for her oh-so-ficworthy novels which I just can't not love having moved on past Baby Jenks, I've turned to the next-best thing: deviantart.  And I equally love the cuddly boys pictures and the comics.  Things like this, which made me snicker until I had hiccups.  That's the most hilarious and wonderful Louis I've ever seen.  Also he kind of reminds me of my Richmond.  In similar news, facebook!Montparnasse went on a friending spree that I find hilarious.

So, about Howard Rice (with whom I am eternally annoyed: curse her for enslaving my soul to her ridiculous and wonderful vampires then depriving me of fanfiction!  curse her I say!)... I've read the first three books and I love them a lot (except for Baby Jenks, who almost made me quit reading).  I ship Armand/Daniel hardcore, though I'm worried a little about Armand.  Especially after I saw Drew Sarich turn him into a moustache-twirling old-timey VILLAIN.  I mean, I know Armand has some serious problems, but he's not pure evil.  And Marius CERTAINLY didn't hate him!  WTF, Lestat musical.  WTF.  In other news, Louis and Lestat make for some adorable comics on deviantart.  As previously illustrated.

I made some comment on youtube about how I loved the sexy gay vampires and somebody tried to start, like, a philosophical debate on whether or not they were gay... I was like, dude.  1. It's a compliment.  I said I like them.  and 2. When I see a boy kissing a boy, I am going to say that that is homosexuality, mkay?  I don't care if they're vampires or humans or penguins.

Tara and I decided we wanted to make all the sexy gay vampires on the Sims.
OH DID I MENTION NO I DON'T THINK I DID MY SIMS ARE NOT DEAD THEY FIXED MY COMPUTER WITHOUT WIPING IT FOR ONCE YATTA.  Though they did manage to knock off one of those rubbery grip things on the bottom of the laptop...
In celebration we made the Kamaras family, which consisted of Mate, der Tod, Herbert, and The Narrator (Lucheni).  Three of them are very similar-looking brothers.  I'm in love with the Herbert one as a real person and was working on being in love with him as a Sim too, but instead he developed a crush on Pavi Largo and said alt!Julian was HOT.  Slight fail, though accurate.  Carolyn gets Mate and Molly gets der Tod and Tara gets The Narrator.  Also, the Mate one kept trying to kiss der Tod.  Lulz.

Also, I watched Tanz der Vampire yesterday.  Maybe the problem was that I don't speak German or that I didn't realise Herbert's part was so insignificant, but oh my word I didn't really enjoy it.  I like that big crashing theme it uses once in a while, but I'm not sure what else I expected from a musical whose biggest number seems to be Total Eclipse of the Heart... Herbert's song is fun, though, as is the fast one that that old professor type sings.  I'm just very unsurprised that it was a huge fail in the US.  I suppose it might grow on me... or maybe I'll just stick to the Herbert parts.  Aww, Herbert.

HEY could the Anne Rice vampires make a vampire out of, like, a possum?


Anyway, this: Get Your Own Fledgling, Armand!, was the first fanart I saw that made me decide I needed a "lol deviantart" folder of awesome saved pictures.  The look on each of their faces!  Especially poor Louis, who just wants to read poetry and emote... Poor Louis.  We had a joke earlier this year about Louis using  a straightener... I drew a picture of him straightening his hair surrounded by dead poodles... lol Louis.

  • 20:20 I wonder if, had Cosette stayed on, she and Eponine and Azelma would have become friends. #
  • 22:17 Glad I caught the bus what with my peeptoes and lack of coat or umbrella. (This information is blogworthy.) In short, I did not expect rain. #
  • 13:55 The way Mate says 'rendezvous' gets me all hot and bothered. #
lesmisloony: (wtf Ten)

 I mean, obviously it's Tanz der Vampire, but LOLOMGWTF.  I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE.

And what a ham!  All the girls are all "WOO WIR LIEBEN MATE!" and he's like *mugmugmug* and I'm like "WOO ICH LIEBE MATE!"
Ohhh dear heavens.
So, for an art project Kat encouraged us all to put poetry and art and whatnot on a wall in our hallway. An expression wall. For a long time, nothing went up but Kat's initial picture of a giant girl. Then we all decided to change that, so the Nuts coloured some pictures from a colouring book, tore them out, and put them up. Good fun. I also wrote some Twilight poetry just for lulz:

Twilight Poetry...ish... )

(There was another haiku that started out "He sparkles in light" but I can't remember the rest.)

Anyway, all good fun, right? But I came back from class and the last two lines of the Jacob Black poem were scribbled out. I was annoyed, but whatever. Then Kat wrote them back in.

Then, tonight, while we were all having our nice little Elisabeth mit Mate (hottie Mate, as Diane calls him) all the poetry was ripped from the wall and replaced with this:

There once was a silly girl
Tales of Twilight she liked to tell
She ruined the story for everyone
Now no one is having fun.

1. Limerick fail.
2. You have NO RIGHT to rip other peoples' stuff off the wall, you idiot.
3. Twilight is NOT good enough to warrant any reaction this strong.
Meanwhile, they had put up a bunch of terribly-coloured pictures on their end of the hall to mock ours. And we know who it was, because only one person on this hall hasn't read Twilight AND has a bunch of vindictive jerk friends.

Well, I was going to talk myself down and keep myself from being mean, but everyone else was ready for an all out war... and so it began.

We went down to their pictures and Kat captioned one "lol passive aggression is fun lololzors rofl"
Then we unleashed the anger onto our own segment of the hall with the following:

PAN, eat your heart out. )

So.  Apparently the Nuts are gonna have to cut some people up.  We'll see what happens in the morning... when our RA wakes up...

In happier news, Mate!  I mean... Elisabeth.  We came up with some good times during our Elisabeth screening.  Hottie Mate was probably my favourite, though I also taught the other girls "Schlaffen mit mir in meinem Bett." in case we ever meet him.  And I wrote on Tara's board "Dear Tara, let's ta-danz!  Love Death" in an attempt to halp her remember those pesky German pronunciations... 

AND AND AND.  A COMMUNITY IN WHICH I AM WHICH I LOVE JUST POSTED THE ENTIRE CONDUCTOR'S SCORE FOR ELISABETH.  AND SOMEONE IN THE PAST WENT IN AND HAND-WROTE ENGLISH TRANSLATIONS UNDER EVERY LINE.  MEIN GOTT.  I AM REALLY EXCITED.  Whenever I love something I want to play it on the piano (still waiting for Repo sheet music, ha) and and and this is just too good.  I'm printing it up and buying a notebook for it TOMORROW and then I'm going to go play it and disappear into the practice rooms for HOURS.  The music is SO GOOD.
  • 22:57 WTF I can't believe this. Total Eclipse of the Heart is used in Tanz der Vampire?? WHICH ONCE STARRED MATE KAMARAS?? BRIGHT EYES IN GERM ... #
  • 13:50 More nerdiness: We saw a map of dialecty regions of France in class and I was picking out Gillenormand's servants. Basque! Poitevin! (etc) #
  • 15:28 Listening to Der letzte Tanz on the way to class. Want to do Mate's awkward dance right here on South Road. Resisting. #
  • 17:46 Wanted to take a bus to work due to blistery feet. Ended up running two blocks to catch the bus. What did I accomplish? #
Oh Mate, how I suddenly love you.

Yayyy end.
This is the TEST shipment you asked for

  • 13:48 I found out I can do my big huge FREN 564 presentation on argot and I'm literally, physically shaking with joy. Is that nerdy? #
  • 14:03 Still shaking. God I need a life. #
  • 21:26 Mate Kamaras. Der Letzte Tanz. Youtube it. #

New love!

lesmisloony: (omg enjy)

Hellooo he's beautiful UP CLOSE (unlike Uwe, whose beauty sort of fades the closer you get to his face but I still sort of love him but not as much as MATE KAMARAS).

The end.  :) 


Woww that video is unnecessarily huge.  Sorry if it messed up your flist.  Though I think maybe the hugeness is okay considering the amouts of beauty contained within...
