Yesterday I was at work, but my mom and I had brought my puppy in, and so during lunch, we took him to the nearby dog park. There weren't that many other dogs there, but it was nice, we ran around, and Baxter def had a lot of fun. And then, for the rest of the day, I could smell the outdoors on me -- you know that smell, all wind and grass and dirt? ...yeah, that, and the sun was shining merrily in through the window, and I was looking at pictures of sundresses online, and listening to some quality tunes, and -- seriously, it was like spring/summer sensory overload, almost, aaaand it was DELIGHTFUL.

So, I thought, why not share all of that with you guys? Obvz I can't give you the outdoor smell or even the sunshine across the interwebz, but what I CAN share with you is the music.

So: here is a mix for all of you, for the spring and summer now and to come; for the kind of days you just want to spend gallivanting outdoors with your friends/family/pets/etc, just running around and having adventures and - just basically living it up, nice-weather-style.

...like, the kind of day you'd have an impromptu scavenger hunt or something, full of a lot of ridiculous hijinks, maybe culminating in finding the nearest playground and climbing all the jungle gym equipment even though you're far too tall for all of it, and then having a swinging contest -- and then getting a little cleaned up and going out with your friends for happy hour specials in the bars' outdoor seating areas, and then...maybe there'd be fireworks, just because I like them. ...oh, and, SUPER ideally, there'd be someone to make out with, as you traipse around in your slightly buzzed state (which is the best phase of drunkenness, let's be honest, because - if you're me, anyway - you're just so happy about everything).

....uhhh, yeah. So anyway! HERE IS THE MUSIC, FOR YOUUUUUUUUU~~ )
splits_thesky: (pd: you saw me when i was invisible)
Hay, flist, guess what??

That's right, I loooooooooooove you!!<3333333333

Happy Valentine's Day, kiddies! )

splits_thesky: (misc: i love you is that okay)

So, this semester, even though it just started, was really nooooot going well. ...I was going to write out this whole thing about everything that was crap, but let's just say - well, it was CRAP. I started feeling myself falling into that rut of apathy I generally only get at the end of a semester, and I really did not have high hopes for the next couple months. But one day, kind of randomly, I decided this was going to be, like, my new theme song:

I tend to do things like this, though, and generally, they reaaally have no bearing on anything at all, much as it pains me to admit. But....somehow, this time it worked?? I don't know, guys, I'm still kind of hesitant to admit it, in case it feels the need to disappear or something, but - life is good right now. I mean, boring, yes (right now, life = school, for realz), and I am TOTALLY still in the running for Most Awkward Person to Ever Awkward (Lia, I almost sent you a text today that said, "OMG I JUST AWKWARDED ALL OVER THE PLACE", lulz) but I'm...kind of rocking it?? IDEK!!

Aaaanyway, so, in the spirit of life being awesome, I figured I'd share some happy music with y'all, that's sort of been my soundtrack for the last couple days. Sooo, onward!! )

Aaaaand now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go write a paper (but I'm totally still feelin' good, what is THAT).
splits_thesky: ('lympics: WINNER ORGY)
So the Olympics are over.
It's the most terrible feeling, especially because, for the first time, I actually sat there and watched EVERYTHING. Generally I pay attention sporadically, whenever the TV just happens to be on, but this time it was a whole experience, and it really was epic, filled with so many amazing moments.

The closing ceremony was spectacular too, of course, but I won't feel right unless I say farewell, and THANKS, to the Olympics in my own way. So here it is, my slightly lame, but totally earnest celebration of the last two weeks - and the Olympics in general, even.

It's in two parts, featuring the two fannish things I can actually do. So, without further ado, I give you Part I, The (mini) Fanmix!!:

'...before the race, I looked up there, and I saw Kobe and LeBron, the two best players in the world in basketball - and I love basketball - and I thought, 'there's no way I'm gonna let these guys down...'' )

In fact, you might want to have that bonus track playing as you scroll through the rest of this post, because it's time for Part II, The Picspam! And because this is my LJ, this is a picspam of, uh, the sports featuring really hot guys in really tight apparel. ....WHAT.


'You just won the Olympics!' - diving )

'We were just yelling at each other' - swimming )

So...I guess that's it. I keep trying to think of new things to add to this post, because really, once I hit that 'post' button, I can't even pretend the Olympics aren't over. ...Awwww, MAN. Maybe I'll just live in this post forever (or...until next time), guys.

UGH. Okaaaay, as hard as letting go is, I just want to say, THANKS, TEAM WORLD - you really did make these two weeks the Olyepics.

1. Because [livejournal.com profile] boheme06 is THE BEST, OMG, she made cover art for my HIMYM fanmix, so now that it is there, you should all check it out, okay, if for no other reason than this is my first fanmix that has had cover art, guys, it is all VERY EXCITING!!
Also, I realized that, in the sort of 'other' category, I forgot to include this:

Marshall: Wow...you're here, and not in stall two!
Ted: Yeah, so?
Marshall: ...I may have made some wildly inappropriate homoerotic comments to a gentleman wearing your shoes!

So, um, there you go.

2. When I get around to actually watching Friday Night Lights (it is ON THE LIST!!), oh god, I am going to CRY AND CRY AND CRY. I mean, I'd heard about Taylor Kitsch's hot, angsty brooding, but NO ONE TOLD ME he just keeps hot, angsty brooding about his boyfriend BFF boyfriend, all with the planning to wait loyally while his man plays ball, and then have the ranch ready for the two of them to own, and the OH MY GOD PAIN when Street gets hurt!! Sitting alone in the locker room, in the dark, rewatching it and crying and BREAKING MY HEART, and being ASDUHFAKSHFDSDJF SO EMOTIONALLY BROKEN he blames himself for the accident, and takes it upon himself to defend his man's honor by throwing glass at people's heads, and can't even go see Street in the hospital because of his IMMENSE MAN-PAIN ASKLDHASFIYASDYGSDF, and THEN finally going, and both of them CRYING and HOLDING HANDS, and ASIFHASODHFDUHGDSA oh hello, what are these things on my face, I think they are called MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF TEARS. And that's all BEFORE they break up and the man-pain reaches EPIC levels, and screencaps like this cause PAIN IN MY SOUL AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHASJKFHDASIUDADSFAS dudes, I am all choked up RIGHT NOW, and I haven't even seen a single episode, okay. ;___;
splits_thesky: (himym: mrs.&mr.&mr.)

So, it's finally time for something I've been meaning to post for a while now, but been to lazy to actually get around to! And what is that, you ask?? WELL.

So guess what, I love How I Met Your Mother! And, though, I adore everyone on the show, I've pretty much always been a passenger on the Good Ship Ted/Lily/Marshall. And so, after a mad marathon of episodes, complete with much "DSKUHJSODIFUJSAD OT3!!!1!!1!!11!!" flailing to [livejournal.com profile] boheme06, I was so overcome with love that I had to...well, make a fanmix.

and OH LOOK, here it is! )

And, now, if you want to also explore the other portion of HIMYM love and AWESOMENESS, [livejournal.com profile] boheme06 made a Robin/Barney mix!! Check it out, guys, because it is AMAZING. ♥♥
splits_thesky: (bandom: panic!: swear to shake it up)
Today is a one [livejournal.com profile] boheme06's birthday!! And, as such, I am here to say, HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LIAAAAAAA!!!! I hope you are having the MOST GLORIOUS BIRTHDAY EVER!! ♥ x infinity!

Because I am probably the least subtle person ever, you probably know you have a JWalk picspam coming, BUT FIRST! Okay, so, the picspam isn't that big, and you've probably seen most of the pictures already (...actually, now that I'm looking at it again, mostly just that second one), so you have another part to your present - and here it is, your very own mini!mix!!! )

Aaaand now, Part 2 - A Collection of Pictures, Featuring Jonathan Jacob Walker (and Some Other Ridiculous Boys)! )
splits_thesky: (bandom: fob: SEKRIT OTP)
...you know, those LJ notifications that all your shiny paid features are almost gone are pretty much the most depressing things ever. :(

ANYWAY. It is now time for something that was actually supposed to be up a couple days ago, my Joe/Patrick fanmix!! HOYEAH.

it doesn't really have a title, but the playlist on itunes is called, 'GINASSFUSS (The Most Great and Tragic Love of Joe Trohman and Patrick Stump)', so let's go with that. )

As you may or may not have noticed, there was no cover art. This is mainly because I have no skill with graphics whatsoever, BUT I wanted to give you guys SOMETHING, so: mini-Joe/Patrick-picspam!!
Some pictures I've posted before, but also some I haven't!! )


Okay, also (THIS POST WILL NEVER END! dun dun DUNNNNNNNN): Butcher/Nate, y/y??
Their bands certainly spend a hell of a lot of time together, right, and they're both drummers, so they can bond over that (they can also bond over the fact that their lead singers are in love - JUST SAYING), and, you know, other things.

I like to imagine they both developed little crushes on one another, and were too shy/scared/in denial to admit anything, but still kind of obsessed over one another constantly.
And then maybe... )

....Okay, finally the end. GOODNIGHT, ALL!! ♥
splits_thesky: (d&j: i can't believe i've fallen for you)
Hah, I love how my flist, which is normally pretty dead after midnight or so, has been FREAKING OUT tonight. It's a combination of those new Jensen pics and the American Idol tour, I'm pretty sure, and the level of fannishness is HIGH. :DDDDD

I just realized I never officially came back from hiatus. So, uh, if you couldn't tell by the obsessive posting I've been doing, HI, I'M BACK. The summer classes I was taking are over, and I have this week off before the next summer session starts. These ones I actually have to go in for (the others were online), but I'll def try my hardest to keep up with the flist and all.

Anyway, the real point of this post is: DRAKE&JOSH!!!!! I know it's a Nick show and all, but it's good, okay, and I love it (and I KNOW there're a good number of you who love it too, so there). I've been pretty much watching all the episodes I can lately, and obsessing, and so, um, I made a fanmix?? Okay, well, it's not totally mine, I used some songs from a couple mixes over at [livejournal.com profile] drakexjosh (I'd link you to 'em, but they're f-locked). But some of the songs are mine!!
ANYWAY. The fanmix is slashy, yes, because I apparently have to slash everything ever, and also, have you SEEN the show????
Aaaaand here we go... )

Oh, and happy 7/7/07, you guys!! If I had enough patience, I'd pull a repeat of last year, but alas. Ooh, but I'm pretty sure there's gonna be a Fairly Oddparents marathon on, WIN. I love Nickelodeon, you guys.

And also!! New Jersey governor signs toughest U.S. carbon law. I saw this in the morning and went, "BITCHIN'!!!!!" really loudly. In addition to Nickelodeon, I love New Jersey, kind of a lot. Not that this is news to any of you! I'm just SAYING.

So, flist. I couldn't help but notice that most of you seem...less than happy that today is Valentine's Day. And, while I understand why you might be feeling this way, you should know, no matter your romantic status today, there's someone who loves you. Who is that, you ask?? Well, me, of course. I know I say this a lot, but I mean it. You guys are amazing, and I love you all lots. I do only know a couple of you in rl, but I've met so many of the best people here on LJ, and seriously, I wouldn't trade you guys for the world.

So I'm asking you, oh flist of mine, will you be my (collective) valentine??
Don't worry, I'm not empty handed, either, I come bearing gifts!! Well, gift. But I'd like to think it's a good one, seeing as I've spent the last week working on (and getting progressively more excited about) it. And, uh, let me just say, even if you don't care about my gift's - backstory, I still love you bunches, and that's all that really counts here.

Okay, so, remember this?? Well.

She's coming back from walking the dogs that Wednesday when she sees it, leaning proudly against her front door. She picks it up, brow furrowing in confusion until she lifts off the single rose attached on the side, and sees the lable. "TO KYOKO, WITH LOVE", it proclaims, in handwriting she's long since grown to recognize, and she giggles as she lets herself into the house, dogs' leashes in one hand, rose and mixtape in the other.
you guys, majority of the songs under here are not my fault. )

So, for the past month, when I wasn't drowning in work, wandering aimlessly around my campus, or watching mass amounts of HBO, I was, as you probably know, fangirling over a little movie called Dead Poets Society. I don't remember exactly when, but I started finding songs that fit or applied to parts in the movie. So obviously, I knew I had to make a fanmix.
This took me foreeeeeeeever, way longer than my SPN one, although I don't really know why. But, a lot of songs did not make the grade, just know that. There was a LOT of me going, "Buuuuuut I'm not happy with it!!" and then switching around, or just taking out songs. But now, finally, I think it's ready to face the world. RUN FREE, LITTLE FANMIX, RUN FREE!!

If We Shadows Have Offended: A Dead Poets Society Fanmix (spoilery, yes) )

splits_thesky: (Default)
Lately I've been in sort of a funk about college, but today my brother and his wife came up to visit me, and - it just really helped. I mean, I still really want to transfer schools, but now at least I feel less like I'm drowning in everything here (AND they brought me soup, so, win). It sounds kind of sappy, but really, being with my family always really helps me. It's just my comfort zone, I guess?? usifhsdkhfsdf uh okay I don't really even know what I'm talking about anymore, so, ANYWAY. On to the exciting part of this post.

I've been meaning to make a Supernatural fanmix for a while now, but I never got beyond scribbling down the names of a couple of good songs. But just now, I went through my all my music (with songmeanings.net open right next to it, haha), and finished it.
So, okay. This is not the best fanmix in the world, I know that for a fact. And I'm pretty sure that the only person who'll like all of the songs in it is me. But I'm also really sure that almost all of you will have at least one or two songs you like in here. And if you don't - uh. Well, then just hit me or something, and I'll upload something for you, maybe.
Anyway. Oh, the other thing is this: I picked all of these songs because, to me, they illustrate a point in either Sam or Dean's (or both, sometimes) lives. And yeah, they all go in order (well, somewhat, anyway). So it's sort of a...story-mix?? Sure, let's go with that.

Supernatural: The Storyteller's Mix - spoilers galore, be warned! )

This entry only took FIVE HOURS TO PUT TOGETHER, WTF. *collapses*
