And here, at last, is Z (just under the wire.) Zbigniew Preisner - Van Den Budenmayer - Concerto In E Minor (SBI 152) Version 1798 (from the soundtrack of La Double Vie de Veronique.) Simply put, this piece is glorious.

Almost done! Here's my choice for Y - Weird Al Yankovic - White and Nerdy. The vid is the first take of the White and Nerdy music video. I couldn't resist.

High School flashback alert! (Well, for when I was in High School anyway.) My choice for X: XTC - King For a Day.

X marks the spot )

Well, here's my choice for W: White Stripes - Seven Nation Army. What can I say? I just like the song.

Have I ever mentioned that I used to take drum lessons? )

Okay, with two weeks to go in the year, here is my choice for the letter V. Vienna Teng's Blue Caravan is a melancholy exploration of a self-created reality. It's also beautiful. Give it a listen and see what you think.

oh my blue, blue caravan... )

Remember how I said I wanted to finish this music thing by the end of the year? Well, here is my Letter U. Urbanized feat. Silvano - Helpless (from the film Jeffrey) was nigh impossible to find the correct version of. Everyone seems to think various remixes are the correct version. Sorry, none of those remixes do it for me. The version I want is the one from my Jeffrey soundtrack. Here it is. If you liked the film Jeffrey, you might enjoy the slideshow on the video. Otherwise, just enjoy the music.

I don't know what to do without you... )

I promised myself that I'd finish the alphabet in music before the end of the year, so here, at last it "T." Yes. I know. I'm totally cheating by counting the "T" in "The."

I don't care. This is my new music obsession (as of today) and this way I get to share it with you. Win-win, yes?

This is Water to Wine by The Rope, a recent band with a sound that harkens back to when I was in High School. I love it.

This is not the lead singer from the Psychedelic Furs )

I know, I know. It's been forever since I started this. ...But I got stuck on "S'" and only now have I figured out that my beloved "Symphony of Science" totally starts with S. Now, a word of caution for this video. I know that many people have an issue with the use of Autotune (and in general I agree) and this video uses same. So, if you are one of those you may wish to skip this one. If not, I hope that you enjoy Symphony of Science - A Glorious Dawn:

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

Last Wednesday I caught a purse-snatcher who stole [livejournal.com profile] mecracker's purse (30 points). In February on a flight to Pakistan, I stole the emergency flight information card (-40 points). In July I bought porn for [livejournal.com profile] catslyn (-10 points). In June I pulled [livejournal.com profile] tshuma's hair (-5 points). In October I saved a busload of nuns in Angola (326 points).

Overall, I've been nice (301 points). For Christmas I deserve a Pony Slaystation 3!

Sincerely,
themusecalliope

Write your letter to Santa! Enter your LJ username:


Sorry. This was too funny to pass up.

Meme stolen from [livejournal.com profile] nagasasu for the letter "L."

Comment and I'll give you a letter; then you have to list 10 things you love that begin with that letter. Afterward, post this in your journal and give out some letters of your own.

Okay then...
Ten things I love that start with L:
1. Libraries (duh)
2. Luck (the good kind, of course)
3. London (love the museums)
4. Leather (I like the smell. deal.)
5. Languages (I've studied Spanish, French, Russian, Latin, and Gaelic.)
6. Loreena McKennitt (I love her music)
7. Legend (The Robin of Sherwood soundtrack by Clannad)
8. Labyrinth (the film)
9. The Lord of the Rings (Both the films and the books)
10. Laughing (It's good for you and all that)

So, there you are. 10 random things I love. I didn't even get to The Lost Boys or The Last Unicorn.

I find this answer very interesting...


You are The Moon


Hope, expectation, Bright promises.


The Moon is a card of magic and mystery - when prominent you know that nothing is as it seems, particularly when it concerns relationships. All logic is thrown out the window.


The Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition. You may be going through a time of emotional and mental trial; if you have any past mental problems, you must be vigilant in taking your medication but avoid drugs or alcohol, as abuse of either will cause them irreparable damage. This time however, can also result in great creativity, psychic powers, visions and insight. You can and should trust your intuition.


What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.

Because we never really know each other as well as we think, in response to this post I'd like you to ask a question. Anything about which you are curious, anything you feel you ought to know about me. Silly, serious, personal, fannish. Ask away. Then copy this to your own journal, and see what people don't know about you.

I really encourage this because it helps us get to know one another a lot better. Ask me anything.

(Mind you, if it is particularly personal, I may just e-mail you a reply.)
