I've just now come to a realisation that during the winter my life gets really sedentary because the weather's far too often crappy and we can't go fishing in it. Well, we could but it'd be really uncomfortable. But...I'm okay with that because I have a treadmill and a home gym and can keep myself active enough that way so that I don't get too big and fat to accidentally roll over onto my husband and kill him while sleeping. After those thoughts ran through my mind, I suddenly decided that I don't have enough musicals on my iPod. So I've gone through the Wikipedia list of musicals (not so fun) and decided that I needed a place to record all the albums I need to get my hands on somehow in the near future without killing my bank account. This will take some time. Broadway, Off Broadway, Off Off Broadway, West End, Film Musicals, and whatever else was on that list...there are some from all of those categories that I want to find. =( Some of them are older though and might not even be attainable anymore. More sadness.

I also don't own enough books even though it's been about a month and I still haven't managed to finish A Feast For Crows. Eventually, I will be adding to my book collection. I already have all the ASOIAF books, it's just getting to the point of reading them. I eventually need to get the Naamah trilogy that followed the Kushiel's Legacy Sagas... And after that I have no idea what to read...

Too many musicals...brain go splodey... )

And after typing all that...I've realised my typing skills are crap. Since most of my computer activities had pretty much died, there's nothing I do much anymore that requires fast typing skills and I definitely don't type as fast as I did 7 or 8 years ago. Ultra sadness. In the same vein, I'm guessing my piano playing skills have also deteriorated some since I haven't touched a key in the three years that I've been here. We don't have space for a piano, not even an upright, but if I had a digital piano or a keyboard I could plug it in anytime, stick a headphone jack in and play to my heart's content at any time, day or night, and not disturb John while he's sleeping. A while back I was looping, looping?? LOOKING at this one and I really like it I think. Yamaha's pretty good with their stuff and while it's not my baby grand *sniff* that I grew up playing on it will have to suffice until we have a bigger house and a bigger bank account to afford the piano I really want. I can totally afford this too as I've got more than double that saved up at the moment. If I needed a cheaper one I was thinking something more like this one. The big question is can I wait the 5-10 years it will take to have the bigger house/bank account to get something I can play on? I'm leaning closer to no on that one...

Okay so I haven't posted in like forever and I've really only got a comment to make and not really a post at all:

Glee has covered two of my favourite songs and they're not bad at all!

"Pure Imagination" from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and "Bella Notte" from Lady and the Tramp.

Love love love.

ETA: I love Disney so very very much. But really guys? Mandy Moore for Rapunzel? She totally ruined that movie for me and I fucking HATE her voice. And live at the Oscars--yes I know that was months ago but I just watched it for the first time on Youtube--damn I was going to say that she probably just had trouble with her earbud but no. She just sucks that freaking hard. YUCK.

Soooo...remember the music meme from way back when? lol, yeah. Here are the results. Like I guessed, a lot of these seemed to go unanswered...

And the oscar goes to... )

Stole it from Cass! And it comes to my attention that a lot of these might not be recognisable... and then some of them are really obvious... O_o Oh yeah, and comments are screened!

Music Meme!

On your current playlist, hit shuffle and pick the first fifty songs on the list (no matter how cheesy or embarrassing), and write down your favorite line of the song. Try to avoid putting the song title in the line. Obviously, skip instrumentals. Then, have your friends comment and see if they know the songs. (And no using Google to cheat!)

Just take those old records off the shelf! )

Reply and I'll give you a letter and you have to find ten songs that start with that letter and post them to your journal. Try to come up with a list without googling & looking through your collection first.

And I was given the letter "L" by [livejournal.com profile] roguebelle. Not a whole lotta L songs on my playlist right now. Ever since my stupid CD-ROM broke itself I can't upload my music which really pisses me off. *mutters*

So...in no particular order:

"Let Me Be Your Wings" from Thumbelina by Barry Manilow and Debra Byrd

"Layla (unplugged)" by Eric Clapton

"Life Support" from the RENT OBC

"Last Dance" by Donna Summers

"La Tortura" by Shakira ft. Alejandro Sanz

"L.O.V.E. (remix)" by Ashlee Simpson ft. Missy Elliott

"Listen to Your Heart" by Roxette -- because I'm weird and I like this version better

"Lose Yourself" by Eminem

"Losing My Religion" by REM

"Lullaybe (Goodnight, My Angel)" by Billy Joel
