Yes, I'm still around, just been having a long chilled out weekend with pushkin666
during which she traumatized me with Guns'n Roses slash and also managed to get me back into Supernatural. I'm currently working through the latest season with great interest.
So, riots happened, in Manchester too. I was home though so didn't witness any disturbances first hand. Other people have already been articulate about the how and why, so I'm just going to point you to this link post
and leave it at that.
I've received three wonderful mixes at the Mixtape Exchange
that I'm very happy about and you should all go check them out. ravanna
made me a deliciously achy Patrick/Pete mix some are fearfu
l. It hurts in all the best of ways, full of missed chances and might-have-beens. Like an angsty fanfic, only via songs. lady_ganesh
made me mix for world-domination called Pretty Poison
. It has both full on rock songs and some slower ones for the more insiduous evil... Motivational for thesis writing too!tjs_whatnot
made me squeal with joy by making a mix for my fic Access All Areas (or: How Spencer Smith Got His Groove Back)
. The mix, All Access
is a perfect match for the story and the characters. I kept listening to it and thinking 'yes, exactly, that's Spencer being in unrequited love with his BFF' or 'this is when they get together nngghh'. Also this mix is to be commended for making me cry at a Shakira song. No really. You see, I expected 'Underneath your clothes' to be a crack choice but it turned out that Ryan = Shakira, okay. And he knows that underneath Spencer's sexy modelling clothes there's an endless story, the man he chose, his territory. And all the things Ryan deserves for being such a good girl, honey.
I'm going to be posting my two mixes tomorrow so look out for those as well if you have interest in Psych and/or slipping over to the dark side.
I haven't forgotten about the two remaining rec posts from Round 2 of Kat Recs All The Fics either, so those are coming this weekend.
RL update can be summarised with thesisthesisthesis (today I wrote what I think are the opening paragraphs) and also some paying work. Life is not very exciting.
Lastly, a signal boost for brilligspoons
who is looking for roommates in Brighton, MA.
