Zoicite☆For all I carry are murdered

: Take Thattery and Other Misc :

Well at least on this vacation I managed to get -one- episode of Kaichou wa Maid-Sama watched and maybe sometime before Christmas I will be able to finish it. Sorry, though.. my brain has been thoroughly taken over by Take That as to be expected. I am trying to hold out on the insane Take That icon making until I get the CD (of which I found out that the release date HAS BEEN MOVED UP TO NOVEMBER 15th). That means now only 12 days, and then some odd when I actually have the CD version in my HOT LITTLE HANDS (am I going to grab a download of it if I see it? Of course, I did pay for it as zweilous can attest to since she's my courier *doesn't that sound so official?*)

Though it did lead to an interesting discussion honestly. It was something I talked about with shuufish, it was the fact that on their next concert, there was the fact that Robbie was going to play some of his solo stuff, Take That as a foursome was going to play their stuff and then the fivesome was going to play as well. Just to keep all camps happy. However Robbie in one of the interviews asked Gary if he could sing on "Shine", "Greatest Day" and "Rule the World"


Now I was against the whole solo stuff in the concert to begin with. Still am. Take That plays as Take That in my mind's eye. You got back together as a group, you will play as a group. That includes Rule the World and Greatest Day if they choose to sing those songs. If Robbie does any of his solo stuff now, I will think it grossly unfair, because he's playing on songs that were composed when he wasn't with the actual group (unless he lets them all chorus in on "Angels") I'm still of the opinion that they got back together as a group, it's not Take That + Robbie Williams, it's Take That. There is individuality in the group, however they are still a team.

On an un-takethat related note.

Wanted to watch more Star Driver but I can't.. NOT UNTIL I FINISH KAICHOU WA MAID SAMA.

Also got to go to Nashville, picked up the best tea ever. Earl Gray Creme mixed with Strawberry Paradiso. That's like heaven in my mouth

Disclaimer: The author of this journal is not against Robbie Williams however he is number five on a favorite list where the jump between five and four is a chasm.

(no subject)

Read the scanlations for Gate 7, the new mangatte by CLAMP and I have to say a few things.

1.) Hana is fricking adorable. he/she whatever it is probably has the powers of destruction in her/him/it.. things that cute generally do.

2.) There is a guy that reminds me of Subaru, it is evidentally echoed by half of the people in the fandom. I bet him and the long haired guy are sorta gay together.

3.) The other guy, the one who is clearly one of the main characters, I don't know.. I think that he reminds me like a way more normal and dorkier version of Watanuki.

I don't know though, I'll be looking forward to reading more of it when it comes out in february. But damn if I'm not going to have an icon of Hana, looks like a minature god of destruction ♥♥♥

: Music Letter Meme - M :

1. Reply to this post and I'll assign you a letter.
2. List (and upload) 5 songs you love that begin with that letter.
3. Post them to your journal with these instructions.

Take That - Mancunian Way

There were only two songs of Take That's that started with M, and since the first one was really just well.. it's dated.   This one is from their Beautiful World album and is pretty much about their return into spotlight the second time around, it's a very beautiful song about coming back to their home city to play again. (I think this is probably my favorite Howard song when all is said and done, tied closely with Beautiful World.)

Shiny Toy Guns - Major Tom (Coming Home)

This song was a surprise for me though it's really an excellent one, it hit me and I remember hearing the original song and I didn't care much for it, but the spin on this.. very ethereal and really out there appeals to me.

Stars - My Radio (AM mix)

This song isn't my favorite by Stars but it's a really awesome song and one of my favorite beginning with the letter M.   Really any icon that uses a song means that I like that song well enough to attach it to something I create.

Sophie Ellis Bexter - Murder on the Dance Floor

A really fun song and one that I actually discovered on Pandora Internet Radio.   This gets thumbs up in my eyes.  ♥ (and the music video is hilarious!)  This has a really awesome disco-y beat to it.

Duran Duran - Midnight Sun

Not just about 'Ordinary World' or 'Hungry Like the Wolf', Duran Duran usually has alot of really good songs that don't ever get radio play.   This is one of them.. very poignant and crystalline, it's probably one of the most fragile songs on the Medazzaland album along with "Out of My Mind"
