I’m absolutely digging this song. It’s so hilarious.

I love how Nirvana wrote songs about real life. Like going to grandpa’s house. 😀

Silver by Nirvana


Mom and Dad went to a show
Dropped me off at grandpa Joe’s
I kicked and screamed, said please, oh no

[chorus]
Grandma take me home X8

Had to eat my dinner there
Mashed potatos and stuff like that
Couldn’t chew my meat too good

(chorus)

Said why don’t you stop your crying
Go outside and ride your bike
Thats what I did, I killed my toe

(chorus)

After dinner, I had ice cream
I fell asleep, and watched tv
Woke up in my Mother’s arms

Grandma take me home X19
I wanna be alone

EPIC WIN! But I’m too lazy to go find a decent version of the song on YouTube. I suggest listening to the Live at Reading version. The whole show is awesome. ;D

So I finished Cowboy Bebop, and I’d like to ask one question: why did Spike HAVE to die? Seriously?
I can’t believe it ended like that. And then Ed leaves, Jet is shot up, Faye is still lost, etc.

The show was AMAZING, none the less. Definitely going in my favorite anime list. ^o^

Although, despite Spike’s pain when she died, I’m kinda glad that Julia got shot. I think it’s due to a fangirl grudge… I was the same way with InuYasha: if it wasn’t for Kikyo the whole show would have pwned 40% more than it already did, and I’m glad that she fell off the cliff. XD
Hmmm. What a sad thing to say. Oh well, she was dead to begin with anyway… O.o

And if you actually read this, I have probably boggled your mind with useless information about a TV show that you will never watch. Of course, this is only an assumtion going towards the general public (aka my Facebook friends), so I could be wrong.

Anyway, Spike’s death has definately ruined my week.

I NEED MORE ANIME!!!! *flails*

Song of the Day

May 28, 2010

Again, the song of the day usually is based on what band I’ve been listening to the most that day. BAHAHAH. Anyway, this is one of my favorite songs of all time. Enjoy!

No Quarter by Led Zeppelin

Close the doors, put out the light
You know they won’t be home tonight
The snow falls hard and don’t you know
The winds of Thor are blowing cold
They’re wearing steel that’s bright and true
They carry news that must get through
 

They choose the path where no-one goes
They hold no quarter,
They hold no quarter.
Oh…

Walking side by side with death
The devil mocks their every step
The snow drives back the foot that’s slow
The dogs of doom are howling more
They carry news that must get through
To build a dream for me and you
They choose the path that no one goes
They hold no quarter,
They ask no quarter,
They hold no quarter,
They ask no quarter…they think about no quarter…With no quarter quarter.
Oh No…

Linkage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FgHSk91RhL8    This is also my favorite version of this song. Live is always better when it comes to Zeppelin.

You’ve probably seen a lot of these before.

FIVE:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QPlAagCXYeI&feature=related    This video is just… beautiful.

FOUR:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-a8USS84F4 I think I like this video so much because of my love of Alan Rickman (he played Snape in Harry Potter).

THREE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vf3Ji-9tiJo I’m a loyal fan, but EVERYONE knows that this video speaks the truth about the show.

TWO: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HbweR85gzXw&playnext_from=TL&videos=oBy_ss3Pq2M System of a Down is such a beautiful band. 

ONE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXM5YXJuIHg Of course! ^o^ There are actually three parts of this chick getting her arsk handed to her, but part three was my favorite.

Also, there are probably a million more videos that I’ve watched that I probably love more than the above. These are just what came to mind.

FIN!!!

This was written by a person named “Intellectual Iris.” I did NOT write this, but I believe all of it 100% true. And, please, comment your opinions! ;D

Okay, so I’m against Twilight, New Moon, Breaking Dawn, Eclipse, and any other book or movie about vampires created by Stephanie Meyer. I did read Twilight and found it so uninteresting and unintelligent that I didn’t continue the series or see the movies. Now, I am a “Twilight Hater”, according to the people who read it and fell in love with it; but, they say that if I had read the book I would’ve loved it. No, I DID read the book and in my opinion they need to find some real literature, like Jane Austen or George Eliot books.

Stephanie Meyer has said that Edward and Bella have a better story than Romeo and Juliet and many other classic couples. Jane Austen is literary legacy, and Stephanie Meyer is becoming more and more famous all because of the Twilight books. Teens everywhere are reading them and becoming such fans that it has become almost all they talk about. Will Stephanie Meyer become as famous as Jane Austen? Let’s hope not for the sensible people’s sake.

I do understand that “Twilight Haters” do “bag” on the people that are absolutely in love with Twilight, but it’s not like the people who are so in love with it don’t “bag” on those of us who could care less whether or not people like it.

Now, vampires aren’t real. They just aren’t real, but let’s face it: if they were real, why on Earth would they sparkle? You read literature like Dracula and he doesn’t sparkle, but I guess that makes him inaccurate; right, Ms. Meyer? I mean they’re supposed to be just like us only dead, am I wrong here? They’re bloodthirsty and don’t normally fall in love with humans. It’s normally the humans they drink from. I mean, sparkling; really?

When Edward leaves Bella, she becomes an adrenalin-junkie. Don’t you think that when some girl’s boyfriend leaves her she might go jump off a cliff with no one to save her all because of these stories? I do, and I’m sure someday, if not now, it will happen, and Ms. Meyer, you better be prepared for a huge law suit.

Also, Edward is such a creep, it makes me sick. I am sorry I could not find gentler words, but he is. He comes into Bella’s room at night and he basically stalks her. I do not find that romantic at all, and I have no idea who could confuse that with true love. A boyfriend should not stalk his girlfriend, and if he does, it’s called harassment!

Now, to those who love it: please give me a legitimate answer as to why you love the “saga” other than a specific character’s name. Tell me why you hate a certain character other than because I just don’t like him or her. Please, enlighten me as to why you are so obsessed and believe that these are some of the best stories you have ever read.

I stand for classic literature and Twilight just isn’t it; I am NOT sorry to say. Romeo and Juliet, Pride and Prejudice, To Kill a Mockingbird, and so many others, are such classics and are recognized world-wide, and this Twilight fluff is just a mockery.

Thank you,
The Intellectual Iris

Song of the Day

Probably one of my favorite Floyd songs of all time. Beautifully written. Beautifully performed.

Goodbye Blue Sky by Pink Floyd

“Look mummy, there’s an aeroplane up in the sky”

Oooooooo ooo ooo ooo ooooh(x 3)
Did-did-did-did-you see the frightened ones?
Did-did-did-did-you hear the falling bombs?
Did-did-did-did-you ever wonder why we had to run for shelter
When the promise of a brave new world
Unfurled beneath a clear blue sky?

Oooooooo ooo ooo ooo ooooh (x 2)
Did-did-did-did-you see the frightened ones?
Did-did-did-did-you hear the falling bombs?
The flames are all long gone, but the pain lingers on.

Goodbye, blue sky
Goodbye, blue sky.
Goodbye.(x 2)

“The 11:15 from Newcastle is now approaching”
“The 11:18 arrival….”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=58_S5e0AVU0 Just wait for the song to start. There’s a little intro with birds and stuff…

Uhm. The title speaks for itself:

  1. The song Dreaming by SOAD really need more bass.
  2. I want an Elven bow… O.o Or a robe.
  3. I need a new digital camera
  4. I’m really digging Serj’s sheep government idea: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kozD7gbFM30
  5. I’m also really excited to watch The Legend of the Seeker.

 

SHWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!

I’ve been in an Audioslave mood today, so I thought I’d make my favorite song of theirs the song of the day. Enjoy!

Doesn’t Remind Me

By Audioslave

 I walk the streets of Japan till I get lost
‘Cause it doesn’t remind me of anything
With a graveyard tan an’ carrying a cross
It doesn’t remind me of anything
I like studying faces in a parking lot
‘Cause it doesn’t remind me of anything
I like travelin’ backwards in the fog
‘Cause it doesn’t remind me of anything

[Chorus]
The things that I’ve loved, things that I’ve lost
Things I’ve held sacred that I’ve dropped
I won’t lie no more you can bet
I don’t want to learn what I’ll need to forget

I like gypsy moths and radio talk
‘Cause it doesn’t remind me of anything
I like gospel music and canned applause
‘Cause it doesn’t remind me of anything
I like colorful clothing in the sun
‘Cause it doesn’t remind me of anything
I like hammering nails, and speaking in tongues
‘Cause it doesn’t remind me of anything

[Chorus]
The things that I’ve loved, things that I’ve lost
Things I’ve held sacred that I’ve dropped
I won’t lie no more you can bet
I don’t want to learn what I’ll need…

Bend and shape me, I love the way you are
Slow and sweetly, like never before
Calm and sleeping, we won’t stir up the past
So discreetly, we won’t look back

[Chorus]
The things that I’ve loved, things that I’ve lost
Things I’ve held sacred that I’ve dropped
I won’t lie no more you can bet
Don’t want to learn what I’ll need…

I like throwing my voice and breaking guitars
‘Cause it doesn’t remind me of anything
I like playing in the sand what’s mine is ours
If it doesn’t remind me of anything

Song of the Day

May 20, 2010

Until it Sleeps by Metallica

Probably the weirdest song they’ve wrote. I still love it though. Musically it’s a beautiful song. That and Jason Newsted is in the video, so that automatically makes it beautiful… *ahem* Anywho… enjoy!

Where do I take this pain of mine
I run but it stays right by my side

So tear me open and pour me out
There’s things inside that scream and shout
And the pain still hates me
So hold me until it sleeps

Just like the curse, just like the stray
You feed it once and now it stays
Now it stays

So tear me open but beware
There’s things inside without a care
And the dirt still stains me
So wash me until I’m clean

It grips you so hold me
It stains you so hold me
It hates you so hold me
It holds you so hold me
Until it sleeps

So tell me why you’ve chosen me
Don’t want your grip, don’t want your greed
Don’t want it

I’ll tear me open make you gone
No more can you hurt anyone
And the fear still shakes me
So hold me, until it sleeps

It grips you so hold me
It stains you so hold me
It hates you so hold me
It holds you, holds you, holds you
until it sleeps (x4)

I don’t want it, I don’t want it, want it, want it, want it, want it, noo..

So tear me open but beware
There’s things inside without a care
And the dirt still stains me
So wash me ’till I’m clean

I’ll tear me open make you gone
No longer will you hurt anyone
And the hate still shames me
So hold me
until it sleeps (x5)

Beware the freakiness of this vid.

Maybe that’s why I love it so much… >.>
