OKAY: IT'S DRIVING ME INSANE.
DOES ANYONE KNOW THIS SONG? It goes "getting better, all the time, getting better, all the time" (these are the only lyrics I know). It's poppy, kind of techno-ish, there's a key change in there. PLEASE.

I've really got to pimp this program because I've had it for ...two days? now, and I am seriously considering having ALL its babies.

The Filter is a program which, after it analyses all your music, lets you pick a song and it'll create a playlist of similar music from your library. It's fantastic! AH!

LOVE.

While we're at the linking thing, Everyone should click here. Make a 5-10 second video, send it in, help Amnesty International petition to close Guantanamo Bay. COMEONGUYZZ.

Two Books Everyone Should Read:

"Lucky" by Alice Sebold
Sure, "The Lovely Bones" is beautiful and sad and moving and DAMNIT I CRIED FOR A WEEK, but dude, you've not read anything until you read Lucky. An emotional rollercoaster which dares you to stop reading but you can't because every girl, boy, dog should read this book and realise what a horrendous ordeal this young woman, and millions of other women and men go through. Sample the first page here at Amazon. It's amazing.

"The Giver" by Lois Lowry
I'm not sure where to begin. It's a banned book, for starters, a slim novel for teenagers meant to...I don't know, open their eyes? A bit 1984-esque, the book focuses on a world in the future where you are prescribed a mate, you get up to 2 children from the government (not your own) and, at 13 or so, you get a job. This is your job for life. A young boy gets given the job of "The Giver", a prestigious honour which means he...well, I'll let you find out for yourself.

4. my brain knows better, it picks you up and turns you around.

18. I don't believe in your sanctity or prophecy.
19. snap that premade view in place.

life is full circle. [08 Sep 2006|08:38pm]
1. It takes four times more land to support each Australian than the earth can provide.
2. 60% of the earth's ecosystems that support life are being degraded or used unsustainably.
3. Australians use 1 million litres of fresh water per person per year.
4. Not since an asteroid hit the planet 65 million years ago have animal and plant species died out so fast.
5. At the current rate of extinction, half of the species of plant and animal would be gone by the end of the 21st century.
6. A quarter of the world's mammals face extinction within 30 years.
7. In 2005, the global fishing fleet was 2.5 times larger than could be sustained by what the oceans produce.
8. In 2000, Australia's 24 biggest power stations produced the equivalent of 40 million cars worth of climate polluting CO2.
9. Tens of thousands of albatross are killed each year by long-line fishing (much of it illegal) around the world.
10. The worst drought in Australia's history was man-made. In 2002, the temperature across Australia was 1.6°C higher than the long-term average which scientists attribute to human-induced climate change.

It takes a thought to make a word
And it takes some words to make an action
And it takes some work to make it work
It takes some good to make it hurt
It takes some bad for satisfaction


Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la la life goes full circle
Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la

It takes a night to make it dawn
And it takes a day to make you yawn brother
It takes some old to make you young
It takes some cold to know the sun
It takes the one to have the other

And it takes no time to fall in love
But it takes you years to know what love is
And it takes some fears to make you trust
It takes those tears to make it rust
It takes the dust to have it polished

Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la la life goes full circle
Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful

black or white? It's so easy when it's simplified. [17 Apr 2006|08:37am]
Basically everyone knows the feeling of being broken up with. It's horrible and you want to crawl under the covers and never come out again. It's even worse when you go to school with said crush. This post is for queen_bunnie, who requested I upload some break-up songs, which, luckily enough, my friend + I did a mixCD for. Here are some selections, babe.

"Heal Over" by KT Tunstall
This didn't appear on my CD for my friend because at the time, I had no idea who KT was. Now, I'm enlightened and can't get over how great this girl is. I would reccommend picking up a copy of the album (virtually or in RL), because it's the most beautiful music ever. She covers every genre (just about) and has the most beautiful voice. I'm reccing this song because it's probably the most break-up orientated, however, most of her tracks could fit the theme as well. (Let me know if you want more of this, or any in this post).

"The Hardest Part Of Breaking Up (Is Getting Back Your Stuff)" by 2ge+her
The title track of my mix:
breaking up is hard enough,
Say you had nothing but I called your bluff.
You got my sweaters, my hat...
I can't find my cat! *meow*
The hardest part of breaking up
is getting back your stuff.


"I Won't Make You" by Something Corporate
One of the sadder songs, this is all about giving up the person to their own needs/wants.
You had an apology in your mailbox, since last July,
it's funny when you find the words to say, you find no reply.
I want to feel through you tonight, but I won't make you,
scream my name just one more time, I won't make you.


"Summer Moved On" by A-Ha
A-Ha had that song, "Take On Me", and that's all anyone really knows of them. This is my favourite other track by them, because it's so sad and sweet, it's about sort of just, people moving on etc.

"You Wouldn't Like Me" by Tegan and Sara
A lot of their music I discovered from Grey's Anatomy, which has the ability to break my heart, so maybe no one else will understand how much this song breaks me, but it does.
There’s nothing to live for when I'm sleeping alone,
and I wash the windows outside in hopes that the glare will bring you around.


"Sexed Up" by Robbie Williams
One of those mopy, feel-sorry-for-me tunes.
Why don't we break up, there's nothing left to say,
I've got my eyes shut, praying they won't stray
.

"I Love Myself Today" by Bif Naked
A pick me up song for after you get dumped. It always makes me feel good about myself.

"Stay" by Lisa Loeb
This song is so old and yet so awesome. She was featured in the Legally Blonde movie & soundtrack and has some of the best music ever. If you want more, I will gladly share. She is love.
and you say i only hear what i want to:
i don't listen hard,
i don't pay attention to the distance that you're running
or to anyone, anywhere,
i don't understand if you really care,
i'm only hearing negative: no, no, no.


"Best Thing You Never Had" by Butch Walker
If you haven't heard this song, you haven't lived. Another "I'm-too-good-for-you" track, which is what you need to hear after a break-up. It starts off the way exactly how you feel after you break-up with someone ("Hello how you doing?/What's it like to ruin all my self esteem?") and progresses to tell you about this girl who's broken his heart because she thought she was the only one who mattered. It's a great song, and when you're feeling down it can lift you up, not in a happy way but in a ...bitter way >:D
When you act like nothing ever happened
I feel like I should feel bad
But I can't like someone who thought
They're the only one that mattered
I hope that you're flattered
Cause you broke this down
The best thing that you never had


"Born To Make You Happy" by Britney Spears
Right after the last one comes the crushing song by Britters, which basically rips my heart out even though it's effin' Britney SPEARS! It's such the best song to mourn a relationship to.
I know I've been a fool since you've been gone
I'd better give it up and carry on (oh my love)
'Cause living in a dream of you and me
is not the way my life should be
.

"My Ex-Girlfriend's Boyfriend (live)" by Machine Gun Fellatio
I love Pinky. This track is better than the album version mostly for the last bit, when he's like "my new girlfriend's boyfriend's got a band..." and everyone laughs =)

"Had Me A Girl" by Tom Waits
This one is the one you secretly hope your ex is listening to.
And my doctor says I'll be alright
But I'm feelin' blue
.

Snatched from doublefourtime:

Reading this? Good. I want you to take whatever song is playing currently on your playlist and upload it for me (e.g. using Yousendit) and post the link in comments. Then I'll reply to your comment with the song that I'm currently listening to, and then you reply to me with... y'see where I'm going with this? And we'll keep sending music to each other until one of us uploads a song both of us have (or maybe not, because I love memes like this).

I'll start you off, DNA by Jonathan Coulton
DNA, you're in my heart,
DNA, in fact you're in every part of my body as well

It's like, a love song to DNA.
