Memoirs of a Dutiful Daughter

Jan. 17th, 2011 10:12 pm

"Years of romantic lyrics have resulted in chronic metaphor inflation, it seems, leading to Mars exclaiming that “I would catch a grenade for you.” Sadly, he doesn’t elaborate on the circumstances in which he feels that he might be called upon to provide this service – do he and his loved one work in a munitions factory, perhaps? And besides, if he’s really that keen to stop her from getting blown up, what’s the big deal about her not doing the same thing for him? Do you want her intact or not? Is Mars pining for an ideal world where, faced with an unspecified grenade-throwing incident, he and his loved one vie for the privilege of obliteration?" (Paul O'Brien).

Skin sweats
When it gets hot
Hands drop
What they have caught

Lungs run out of breath
Great minds can still forget

What if we could make this better
Would we do it if we could
If we bypassed human nature
Would it do us any good

What if we were made for wires and spare parts
What if there was only science in our hearts
Maybe we could love each other as robots

What if kisses were ones and zeros
We'd see the world through electric windows
Would it make us better off than people

We build with no mistakes
Steel heart that never breaks

More...Collapse )

“We fight, we save the world, we die, we get resurrected, we rest up, and then start the whole stupid cycle over again,” Dazzler says. “But where in that eternal Moebius loop do we get to live?”

I wish my phone would allow me to see new text messages. Instead of, y'know, saying I've received one, and then making it magically vanish from my inbox.

Yeah, still hating of the technology...

Day 25: A song that makes you laugh
Day 26: A song you can play on an instrument
Day 27: A song that you wish you could play

Thank the gods I'm caught up again before I'm supposed to have finished this thing!

Okay, so first up a contender for best Christmas song ever (yeah, I know it's August, what can you do?). I think this song is mucho amusing:



Let's play!Collapse )

Day 24: A song that you want to play at your funeral...

This'd be one of the few that I've contemplated before this meme - yes, yes, I am that emo, whatever, moving on...

I've had several thoughts - some conspicuously inappropriate - but here are two that have stayed with me, and that I think would probably work...

Day 21: A song you listen to when you're happy
Day 22: A song you listen to when you're sad

Oops, slipping back into bad habits - missed another day. But anyway, here's one of the best, wittiest, and generally cleverest pop songs ever:



What!? Come on, just one little adjective and we'll have a whole sentence here. The tank isn't glad. Sad. Mad. *Lonely*...Collapse )

Day 20: A song that you listen to when you're angry...

Tori Amos, followed the next day by Fiona Apple... That's more like it - gotta give people what they expect from me ;)

Day 19: A song from your favourite album...

Conversely, this one was really easy. The only mystery is how it's taken me this long to post anything by Tori...
