two songs! )

2. Very much more random. I took that tarot cards quiz going around the internet. First thing: I found it totally AWESOME that in the question 'what's your favorite heavenly body' after all the solar system's planets there was Uma Thurman for an answer. Guess what I answered? Yeah, right.

Anyway, I got this:


You are The Tower


Ambition, fighting, war, courage. Destruction, danger, fall, ruin.


The Tower represents war, destruction, but also spiritual renewal. Plans are disrupted. Your views and ideas will change as a result.


The Tower is a card about war, a war between the structures of lies and the lightning flash of truth. The Tower stands for "false concepts and institutions that we take for real." You have been shaken up; blinded by a shocking revelation. It sometimes takes that to see a truth that one refuses to see. Or to bring down beliefs that are so well constructed. What's most important to remember is that the tearing down of this structure, however painful, makes room for something new to be built.


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



I'm not 100% sure that it's an accurate answer, even though it, mmmh, says dangerously true things about stuff going on in my current state of mind, but I'm just laughing at the fact that I got THE TOWER. Like, that quiz knows what I'm obsessed with. doesn't Roland Deschain come with it?

3. Sirens is over. If they don't renew it I shall be very sad. Why do UK shows last for six episodes when it's good and three when it's bad? Meh. It was the best new thing I had seen this year. :( On the other side I decided I'm saving Game of Thrones for when I go to my grandmother's place after the 15th because I'll be without internet except for once a day and I'll have a whole damn lot of time to kill. Hopefully my grandmother won't think that I'm insane if she sees me watching it.

4. I have nothing more and that second point probably took enough space already so I'll leave this post here. Can't believe I'm actually almost done with that meme...

1. Bon Jovi was glorious. Like, GLORIOUS. (Two words: DRY COUNTY. I still don't compute that.) Post with pics/concert review shall follow shortly, but atm I feel way too crappy for anything that long. Or, I think it's a combination of not-really-sleeping for twelve hours in a train cabin with a seventeen degrees AC and spending another four hours on another train with the same kind of AC while the temperature outside was over thirty and of getting burned while walking around, but since I've been back I've been feeling like crap. And I get random headaches. I'm pretty sure it was the AC, but anyway, I've been writing this whole thing in breaks so I can't go sorting pics and stuff right now. STILL IT WAS SO WORTH IT OMG BON JOVI.

2. Apparently the Dark Tower adaptation isn't happening for now. Or at least, apparently not with the people attached to the project at the moment. And er, I'm totally not sorry about it because there wasn't anything about it which was getting me even remotely excited, from Javier Bardem to the format itself. let's not talk about the Eddie rumors shall we. I'll be here hoping that HBO sees how well Game of Thrones did and picks it up. Or that someone else with better ideas picks it up because either you do it well or I don't need it to happen.

3. Meme day three. Let's see how much slower I can manage to be with this.



eight fears )

4. So, while in Udine and after I realized I had seen everything I had to except for museums that were closed, I found myself a park bench and finished A Feast for Crows while waiting for [livejournal.com profile] lasamy to get into town. Clearly I managed to burn an arm and half of my neck because it was quite sunny and I should know better, but anyway, I'm done with that one.

thoughts and stuff )

I have A Dance with Dragons, by the way. Will start it asap.

5. Okay, I've been doing this entry in chunks for half of this afternoon/evening so I guess I'll cut this here and hope that tomorrow I feel like staring at a screen for more than twenty minutes. Also because I need to inflict some Bon Jovi related gushing. *is still ecstatic*

So, I'm off to see Bon Jovi tomorrow! :D I'll have online access until this evening, but then I'll be MIA at least until mid-18th, so if I don't answer comments/e-mails/whatever, I'll do that when I'm back. :) don't post too much when I'm away! ;) *waves* *clutches BJ t-shirt to chest* see you all on Monday!

Eee, this is a real post! I'm almost shocked myself.

1. Okay, I'm almost shocked myself, but this last week has been... the busiest since September or so? In order, I: did the extra exam, covered shifts for other people at the library, lost hours in order to hand over the last paper that was lacking from all the graduation forms, lost a bunch of time searching bibliographies for stuff to use in my thesis (which ended up being mostly useless), talked with my supervisor and I still need to start writing said thesis. At least it's just forty pages. *sigh* Moral of the story: I spent the weekend sleeping, mostly, and the only thing I managed to do was post a fic I had a deadline for. *sigh* So if I owe any comments or e-mails I'll see to do it all tonight/tomorrow morning since I have it free.

2. Also happy Halloween to anyone doing it? (I don't, but it's not like anyone I know does it either or like it's a big thing here, so. It sounds... very much like I don't like to have fun, but I just want one evening to catch up. XD)

3. In much better news: Bon Jovi are touring, which is nothing new, BUT THERE'S AN ITALIAN DATE, which is, instead, a miracle. Or at least, they hadn't had one in... ten years. Or so. Which means, I'M ATTENDING A BON JOVI CONCERT. Which probably wouldn't request capslock, but dammit I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR TEN YEARS TO GET ONE not needing to get out of the country.

Clearly it's in a city which is exactly near to the border both with Austria and Slovenia which means I'll need to spend ten hours on a train or two, BUT WHO CARES.

4. In as good news: I had bought a ticket to go see The Promise at the Rome film festival tomorrow. It also was the last ticket. Then Friday they announced that Bruce Springsteen was attending THAT screening.

Meaning: TOMORROW I'M SEEING BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN. And I paid exactly 6.50 euros for it. I've been gleeing non-stop since I heard it. \o/ Also before The Promise I'm seeing in the same hall a movie named The People Vs. George Lucas, which is apparently made of interviews to Star Wars fans who hated the prequels. I'm strangely excited for it, or at least I'm excited because I want to have some fun.

5. I also signed up for [livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo, with the intent of using it for both my thesis and the bunch of fics I need to finish. Except that I had forgotten that I'll be out of town for two days and idk how I'm going to report to them. I need to check the rules again.

6. Also since I am done with bureaucracy, I should also catch up on both Hawaii 5-0 and Boardwalk Empire. This last one will kill me, since I haven't seen anything beyond episode two and it's one hour long, but damn I loved it so much, I don't want to wait for the season to be over to catch up.

7. Also I'm attempting to read some goddamn fiction again because I've been reading just school stuff for one month, so expect some book recs post in a week or so. But for now I can totally say that Margaret Atwood's Oryx and Crake is probably the best thing not written by Kafka which I read this year. I'm still gushing over how good it was. I'll probably rant about it more extensively in the future.

8. My PM becomes worse with every passing day. Except that this time there's a girl named Ruby (okay, it's not her real name, but still) involved in the whole mess and every time I hear 'the Ruby affair' on the TV or on newspapers I have laughing fits instead of feeling depressed. I'm at the point when I think it's actually a good thing. :/

9. Uhm, that's probably everything, Rl-wise. I'll probably post again soon-ish with Bruce pictures if I manage to take some. :D and now I'll be off catching up with things, which I'll do also tomorrow morning. How glad I am that November 1st is national vacation here. Let's see if I can manage to be caught up before the 2nd.

10. ETA: and I'm an idiot, since I started the post wanting to say this and I forgot, but happy birthday [livejournal.com profile] carmexgirl and [livejournal.com profile] thespiansparkle! :DDD I hope you both have awesome days (had, by now), and if either of you wants to prompt me or something I'll see what I can do. :D

crush #1 is crush #1 + meme + milestones!

  • Mar. 2nd, 2010 at 4:44 PM
janie_tangerine: (jooooon ammore)
1. Well, milestones not really, but this is my entry number 1000! Yeah, random. Still, it's 1000. Duh.

2. Aand, today is crush #1's birthday! (Crush #1 is Jon Bon Jovi, for anyone who wasn't around for a long while.) I still think that he lives in a refrigerator when he isn't on tour because he doesn't look 48 at all, but still. (Also, if this year I don't land a BJ gig it'll be a goddamn joke. I've been doing the fangirling business for ten years, it's ridiculous.) Also, according to the band's facebook page, I could actually call some American number and leave the guy a birthday message but I don't really think it'll ever be the case. That'd be way too weird. Though, cool thing I guess. I'll have to admit their facebook is a totally cool thing. (Also it's adorable that the four of them use Twitter from the band's account, but I won't digress, especially because last month I actually sent crush #1 a tweet when he said he was learning to use the whole thing and that was surreal enough. *cough*) Anyway. Last year I went and uploaded These Days which is my favorite record, this year I'm uploading Keep The Faith which is my second favorite.

Original version + the two Japan bonus tracks happily zipped together.

tracklist and stuff + artsy picture because I say so and I love it. )

3. This term's classes have a crappy schedule. It'll suffice to say that one is on Saturday at 8.30 AM. *headdesk* But. It's my last term. Not ever because I'll have another two years after the bachelor degree but it is until next year at least. It's kind of scary-ish.

4. Random movies talking: Invictus was awesome. Not the Gran Torino/Iwo Jima movies kind of awesome but still, <33. Also, the soundtrack is ridiculously good. And then I went and managed to find myself a copy of Help! which was my only Beatles movie missing and it was awesome, even if not at the A Hard Day's Night levels. Even though the priestess which was a total Paul fangirl and the ending titles were totally worth it alone.

5. I fear I don't have much more interesting stuff to say for today unless we talk politics and I already can't wait to be done with regional elections in a month. *sigh* I'll probably go studying some, even if the weather is too good to waste the afternoon on pedagogy.

6. But, last thing, meme from [livejournal.com profile] wandersfound because I feel like it.

For each right answer I will write the guesser a 100 word drabble with the pairing of their choice, from any fandom listed on here (so doesn't have to be my OTP).
-> about the last one: I doubt I'll ever manage 100 words only but I'll try. ;) Anyway. Fandoms!

1. Blah. This morning I overslept and missed class. And then when I tried to recharge my phone it wasn't working (and hasn't been for two days). Then I found out it was the charger when I used my mother's. Arrgh, buying a new one is so not what I need. Anyway, at least it's working now. *phew*

2. I owe a shitload of comments/replies. Sorry for that, I'll try to get to them asap.

3. That said, I hope to be done with all the deadline fic in five days. *headdesk* It seems like the stuff I'm supposed to write won't work. *kicks self*

4. But, on to funnier things! Last Saturday I found out that my bookshop had a 20% discount on all the cds and dvds, which meant that I got the last Bon Jovi record, an old Nick Cave one, the Boston Greatest Hits and the DVDs for Lost S5 and I paid everything 30 euros less than it should have been in total. \o/ That said, I'm kind of surprised that in Europe we got the Lost dvds before America or so it seems, but if everyone remembers my post last year, this is the volume #2 of the crap whoever adapted it for Italian TV came up with. I'm sorry there are no gems like last year's 'Kate is a man' or 'Locke wants to leave the island', but there's some good stuff too.

Wherein people can't translate titles. )

5. Ookay, I should be doing stuff. Like, writing. Or posting a fanmix. Or catching up with comments. So, I'll probably do one of the three while trying to make contact with a friend I was supposed to have lunch with and with whom I couldn't talk until now because of the phone issue. *waves*

1. Point 1 and 2 are what I'm now calling the proof that today is a good day.

potential HEAVY Lost casting spoiler, you probably guessed what it is already but still, cutting it. )

2. Point is, point 1 came and made the day more awesome, but it had already started awesome. Okay, now I'll probably pass for the seriously insane fangirl, but anyway. So, yesterday Chad Lindberg of SPN fame (I reiterate: Ash used to be my favorite character before he, er, died *sigh*) reaches 2000 followers on Twitter. I congratulate him on the achievement, then go to bed. Then I wake up and he has answered me and wished me an awesome weekend.

The actor playing my former favorite SPN character actually wished me an awesome weekend. How freaking cool is this guy? *____* Damn. I miss Ash like crazy. And I kinda wish he'd go to the con we'll have here *crosses fingers*. Because if he does... no but anyway, he tweeted back at me!! *is still ecstatic*

3. Okay, again with the caring is sharing meme...

For one week, recommend/share:
Day 1: a song
→ Day 2: a picture
Day 3: a book/ebook/fanfic
Day 4: a site
Day 5: a youtube clip
Day 6: a quote
Day 7: whatever tickles your fancy

Today's picture won't probably mean anything if you're not into Jersey people/music (I'm sure [livejournal.com profile] wandersfound is laughing her a** off now at my ridiculous Jersey love), but I found it while I was searching for one and it's like, all the best Jersey music/cinema can offer in one shot. The quality is kinda crap but...



I mean. JBJ, Southside Johnny, Danny De Vito, Little Steven AND Bruce?

Yeah, I'm a girl obsessed with people from NJ. No news.

4. Today I went to see Videocracy. My only reaction: I really want to emigrate. And that's all I'm saying for now on the matter. For now.

5. Blah. I need to start writing again. Last week between medieval idiotic philosophers and stuff I didn't manage to get a full sentence down and a) it feels weird b) knowing myself the more I make it last the more I'll be lazy and considering that I have 50000 words of two fics to write before October 31st, three Lost things I want to have as late luau stuff even if I'm seriously late at this point, the SPN/GO crossover of doom which is still not done at +20000 words and at least another three fics I really want to write... I should stop being lazy. St. Thomas Aquinas doesn't put you in the mood to write slash though. (not to mention, Medieval stuff in general will probably kill any porn muse you might have. I think it's that.) *sigh* I just hope that all the theology crap I have to study will turn helpful with SPN stuff someday. Right now? Bo-ring.

5b. me asking an opinion about a probably supremely blaspheme SPN pairing I don't know if I want to write or not, cut for sparing non SPN people. )

6. Okay, I'll go answering stuff I should have answered two days ago and then I'll probably go reading some book which doesn't refer in any slightest way to God's intellect/free will, human intellect or anything concerning how Aristotle was really a Christian without knowing it. *roll eyes* *waves*

1. HII! I'm back for good. Finally. I can stop being half MIA now! Well, fine, I have to study for the blasted medieval philosophy exam, but it isn't until the 24th at least. Now I'll finish unpacking and then I'll do my final catch up. Which thankfully isn't that much.

2. For my birthday I asked for the S2/S3 SPN dvds and Steve Earle's short stories book and everything arrived. \o/ Totally can't wait to read the book. And maybe before S5 starts (wtf it's a week!!) I'll manage to re-watch some S3 stuff which I haven't watched in forever. (Also, Vampire Diaries in a week, too! Why, yes, I'm excited. It's His Prettiness after all. I don't expect anything else really.)

3. So, while I was at grandparents' I caught half of The Frisco Kid on the cable (sadly I couldn't finish it, but I'm downloading now *cough*) and apart from the thing being a blast, why didn't anyone tell me that there was a movie where Harrison Ford and Gene Wilder basically cuddle in the midst of a snow tempest and are actually pretty touchy-feely? Because that was awesome. I'll finish it sometime soon, I hope.

4. Uh. I have fic recs, I owe the luau recap post and I owe fic which is written in my head but not elsewhere. I'll come down to that sometime soon I hope.

5. Did I miss anything I shouldn't have missed? *wants links in case*

6. By the way, I survived the driving without incidents, but I stand by my opinion that I'd rather drive anywhere but there.

7. Duh, I come back and there's ANOTHER new song from the new BJ record two months before it's out? *steals from youtube* fine, it's live, but who cares. \o/

8. I also think I'm sunburned. *sigh* Ah, well, no news and it isn't too bad.

9. Uh, all for now I guess? I'll be tidying stuff, finishing catching up and I hope writing something. If I manage to throw some studying in I'll be accomplished I guess.

I just caught up with all the personal entries since I left. I need to catch up with fic/comms, but I'll be doing it this afternoon. Aaand, HI!

I'm currently at my grandparents' after a pretty decent night train ride, I miss [livejournal.com profile] _izu_ and [livejournal.com profile] marlonob already, I'm totally stealing the Internet from my granddad but he can live with it also because I'm pretty much the only awake person in the house and WTF? I leave for five days and I come back to:

a) two AWESOME SPN new promos which are making me want to jump straight to September 10th NOW;
b) the SPN gag reel which is just hilarious;
c) NEW BON JOVI SINGLE AND ANNOUNCEMENT FOR NEW RECORD AND THEY'RE SAYING THEY'RE TOURING NEXT YEAR!!!!!!!!! OMG!! And the single is actually good. OMG. JOVI NEWS!! ♥

and I'm sure I missed something. If I did, uh, link me here? And how are things going? *wants to get back in the loop*

Anyway, now I'll be having some coffee. Probably. And then I might be writing or reading. And then checking comms since tomorrow I'll go to Sicily and then I'll have like one hour online each day at the internet point *sigh*. Also, I have pics to post. Maybe later, if I manage. *waves*

PHEWWWW.

Bon Jovi rocks always and not on occasion.

Uh, so, while I have this idea that Jon's Farsi accent has to be hideous, I'm actually really touched by this. Especially because it's up for grabs and not on sale or for charts. And apart from the (GREAT) intentions it's a really fine cover IMHO. And I can't stop listening to it. And I just need to manage to download the mp3 because it doesn't work right now, but I guess I will sooner or later. *wibbles and puts it on again*
