Writer's Block: Peace of mind

What kind of spiritual or meditative practice keeps you feeling zen?

Many of the Goddess' hymns and chants are repetative and often, when I'm feeling stressed or overwhelmed, singing them over and over again helps bring a calm over me.

Writer's Block: Leaping from the page

Which comic book character would you like to see on the silver screen? Who would you cast to play the role?

Jervis Tetch, the Mad Hatter, from the Batman comics. I want to see him taken seriously as a villain: possibly a genius, murderous pedophile who uses either technology or possibly drugs to enslave the minds of his victims. And who better to play him than David Hyde Pierce? While Pierce has done some excellent comedy relief in a lot of movies, I feel he could bring all the seriousness needed to this character if set in the Nolan-verse.

Dream Log 5/31/11

Last night I had a dream in which I worked for an African American family's restuarant. It was run out of a tiny yellow building with a raised kitchen only separated from the tables by a long bar. The floor was sawdust and the only air circulating about the room came from a few creaking ceiling fans. The building was surrounded by open fields and there was a cemetary nearby. Someone was having a funeral and the place was packed with people coming to eat. A storm was coming.

My father wanted me to leave with him in his car before the storm hit us, but I declined because there were several elderly folks who insisted on walking back to...wherever it was that they needed to be (possibly home, but I'm not sure). I volunteered to escort them. Despite the lightning, I led them down a dirt path across the empty fields, one of which was covered in what seemed to be volcanic ash, and towards the woods. I've been in these woods before in previous dreams and part of me seemed aware of that during this dream. Some patchy areas had been cut down for construction that never came, and so the fallen lumber remained, leaving large dark stains amongst the rest of the green.

Some of the others were straggling and so I told them ot grab a stick to walk with. To show them what I meant, I grabbed up a tree limb, but discarded it when we came across a pile of carved walking sticks leaning against another tree. I hesitated before taking one carved with a serpent's head.

We kept walking through the rain and biting cold wind; none of it deterred us and I found it to be surprisingly pleasant. Lightning struck a tree nearby and set it on fire, but as it fell in our path, the flames disappeared, leaving the bark charred black. When I touched it, the tree crumpled away into ash and blew away with the wind. We kept walking...

I remember it being so important that I take them back to wherever it was they were going...SO important that I keep them safe. We never reached our destination; I woke up before I could finish the dream.

Writer's Block: Mother Monster returns

In three words, how would you describe Lady Gaga?

Oh! But there are so many! I could make...clusters of words! Someone's already said "overrated overexposed over" to which I readily agree, so lemme think...

"Fucking self-righteous whore" has a nice ring to it. Oh! Or how about "An irrational troglodyte"? That's accurate. Hmmmz.... I can't decide.

Writer's Block: A charming defense

If you could conjure an animal spirit protector, which animal would you choose, and why?

The Barbary Lion was Ishtar's most faithful animal companion; why would I not want to choose that as my spirit protector?

Sweet Transvestite

Meme time!

List 10 musical artists (or bands) you like, in no specific order (do this before reading the questions below). Really, don’t read the questions below until you pick your ten artists!!!

1. Cruxshadows
2. Lady Gaga
3. Mika
4. Owl City
5. Voltaire
6. VNV Nation
7. Samsas Traum
8. Taylor Swift
9. Steven Lynch
10. Nightwish

What was the first song you ever heard by 6? (VNV Nation)
"Beloved" Sephy and I were in her car on the way to visit her mom while she was down one time. I fell in love with it.

What is your favorite song of 8? (Taylor Swift)
"Love Story" I can't help how much I love this song cus I'm a sappy dweeb. XD

What kind of impact has 1 left on your life? (Cruxshadows)
Being at one of their concerts is always like a near-religious experience. When I heard their song "Birthday" for the first time, it really did open my eyes to how short life is and (as cliche as it sounds) it really turned me around.

What is your favorite lyric of 5? (Voltaire)
"In my casket purse I'm toutin'
Einsturzende Neubauten
And pagan hymns to Thoth
Yes the world would be depressing
Over death I'd be obsessing
And this corpse that I'm undressing
Would be sexier, I'm guessing
With my diet I'd get scurvy
And I'd worship Peter Murphy
If I only were a Goth" - If I Only Were A Goth

How many times have you seen 4 live? (Owl City)

What is your favorite song by 7? (Samsas Traum)
Oooh, that's tough. It's a  toss up between Stromausfall Im Herzspital (Power-outage in the Heart Hospital) and Die Hoffnung Stirbt Zuletzt (Hope Finally Dies?).

Is there any song by 3 that makes you sad? (Mika)
Not that I've ever heard

What is your favorite song by 9? (Steven Lynch)
"Little Tiny Mustache" wins hands down.

When did you first get into 2? (Lady Gaga)
I hate her as a person, but her music's just soooo damn catchy and after I heard "Boys Boys Boys" and had a German dance-fest in my head, it was over and I had lost the battle of trying to dislike her music.

How did you get into 3? (Mika)
This is sort of embarrassing, but there's this artist on Y!Gallery who mentioned that one of their OC's whom I adore sounded kind of like Mika and so I started listening and got sucked into loving it.

What is your favorite song by 4? (Owl City)
Surprisingly, not "Fireflies", but that's a close second. My favorite is actually "Hello Seattle".

How many times have you seen 9 live? (Steven Lynch)
None. The only ones on this list I've seen live are the Cruxshadows and Voltaire.

What is a good memory concerning 2? (Lady Gaga)
Driving to Panama City, FL with Sephy while we listened to Gaga-gasm on her Zune.

Is there a song by 8 that makes you sad? (Taylor Swift)
"White Horse" makes me cry ever time. XD

What is your favorite song of 1? (Cruxshadows)
There's absolutely no way I could choose, but "Winterborn", "Wake the White Queen", and "Quicksilver" are all up there on the top of my list.

How did you become a fan of 10? (Nightwish)
Again, Sephy is an awesome person and had a bunch of Nightwish on her Zune while we drove around.

It's 10:30am. I'm awake. Something about this doesn't add up. Well, I know why I'm up; William's going to come over to hang out and give me my Christmas present (a handmade sling) and teach both me and Monica how to use it. Today's just kind of...really sad. This is her last whole day down here with me and I already want to cry. I mean, I know we both have to finish up our BA degrees before we can marry/move in with each other, and 2 years isn't incredibly long in the long run, but neither of us are in a financial way that would secure her at least another trip down in between the wait. I know I'm going to cry tomorrow when she leaves. If I don't do it right in the airport, I will either on the way home, possibly at Waffle House, or once we get home and I go back to bed (she leaves at 5:30am).

I'll have to get a job this semester, with or without the school. When I do, I can start saving up again. Plane tickets are so incredibly expensive and on top of that, I'll have to keep some of the money back for school as well since Troy is NOT as cheap as Wallace is. I'm going to start looking for scholarships and grants as soon as this semester starts and apply for everything I can get.

Perving Dok

(no subject)

I could use a little help here. I'm writing an essay on the nature of villainous redemption and, for the sake of one of my examples, I need a villain that is completely UN-REDEEMABLE. There can be nothing felt for said villain but utter disdain. This type of character, however, completely eludes me. Part of me wanted to use Voldemort or Bellatrix for it, but there's some contention over them. I think perhaps I could use Iago from "Othello", but I was just wondering if anyone else could think of another or better example.

"And all I know is that if you believe in Jesus, some magical good shit will happen when you die."

This was John's closing line to a wonderful arguement between me and this girl's boyfriend as to whether "immortal" souls exist or not. I won by proving they didn't, but he's one of those close-minded sheep that doesn't believe it unless a preacher tells you out of context of the Bible. Then again, this is also the guy who's best friends with this girl that John and I troll and she's just...I don't mean to come off sounding terrible, but she really is an idiot.

Anyhoo, food poisoning sucks like a bucket full of homosexual ticks. I went to my friend's birthday party at this hibachi grill on Monday, came home that night, and from between 11:30pm and 3:45am the next day, I was puking my guts out. My friend Cody had the same thing happen to him the last time he went there (not counting that night) and both of us had the same food as someone else and the other guys were fine. I don't know what it was; maybe it wasn't food poisoning, but it damn well felt like it. I was so sick, I had to miss my honor's convocation. Anyway, Cody called me later yesterday and I told him about it and his reaction was, "O.o Well, I'm never going there again. Next time, we're going to Waffle House," to which my reply was, "YES".
