Pairing Songs

It's a time-honored fandom tradition to connect your favorite songs to your favorite pairings, whether the two fit together or not. I do it all the time; it's rare that I listen to a new song without trying to somehow fit it into my fandom shipper world. I always feel that these associations are best kept to oneself--pretty much any song can be interpreted from any pairing's perspective, and a lot of the time, the connection is so obscure that it becomes redundant to anyone but the individual making it.

However. (You knew there was one coming, didn't you?) Over the years, I've come across a handful of songs that, I feel, actually do fit a certain pairing or character in more than an entirely subjective way. Songs like that usually end up on my list of "vids I should make at some point". Vids, however, are a lot of work, and I'm lazy, so you're not getting vids, you're just getting the songs, and my thoughts on why they remind me of the character or pairing I listed them under.

Lots of YouTube videos under the cut. )

Long entry is long! Hope you found it at least a little bit interesting. Feel free to link me to your favorite character/pairing songs in the comments! :)

Surprise Meta

teyla: Mary Morstan from Sherlock giving a thumbs-up. (LoM 1973)
I just watched the A2A finale, and while it was weird and confusing and barely held together, it still put so much emphasis on the one thing that I love most about the LoM/A2A 'verse that it made me all flaily.

I was actually working on writing a longer meta text about this, because it fascinates me deeply, but I actually think I made my point quite well in the text under the cut - even if the structure might be a little, um, unstructured. Lol. I might try to polish this a bit later on, but for now, I've said everything I think is essential.

Spoilers for: Life on Mars up to the finale (yes, this is where I explain why I loved it, so if you're interested, please click ;) ), and mentions of A2A 1x08. If you haven't seen it, you might not get the last paragraph, but you won't be spoiled for anything.

House Fic, Homepage, LoM Vid

So I hear that House Bigbang is now online and everything. It makes me sort of sad that I feel so little excitement about this, but eh. I'll probably crave House fic at some point in the future, and when that time comes around, I'll have loads to read :D.

I rewrote my homepage, because the javascript setup with the 6 different skins was getting completely unmanagable.

Rosetta Stoned

There's still javascript in there, but a LOT LESS than before.

In other news, I have a vid bunny for an angsty Gene POV Sam/Gene plus unrequited Gene/Alex post-LoM A2A character death vid. Lol, try saying that three times fast. The song is Badge by Cream (Eric Clapton's band in the 60ies), and it's the most awesome song ever, except that the youTube vid has really crappy quality and you probably won't hear much.

I'd love to start vidding RIGHT NOW, because it's all there in my head, but I haven't ripped all LoM episodes yet, and I think my A2A episodes have a different resolution than my LoM ones. Fail. Also, I'll have to convert everything a second time to make Sony Vegas play it. Oh, how I hate hate hate all these vidding inconveniences. Why can't they make a vid prog that does all the things I want, and not only everything except this one tiny but really important one?

In conclusion, woe is me.

Ashes to Ashes, first impression

Metaphysical aspects in shows make for the best icons ever.

I just watched the Ashes to Ashes pilot, and boy, do I ever prefer the seventies to the eighties. Plastic and pink and perms and ugh, no. And no flared pants :'(.

Although the over-the-top hero glorification of Hunt made me laugh till I cried.

[Poll #1152771]

Is it just me, or do I watch too many shows? *eyeballs tag list*
