Food
Went out with my Mom tonight to the symphony. We went out to dinner with her friends first. Must say I'm thankful my Mom warned me before we went that the prices were a bit high. She failed to mention there were no prices on the menu.

The mind boggles. I barely withheld a face at that. I also resisted shaking the menu to see if the prices would magically appear.

Awesome food though. I had pasta primavera thinking it'd be less harsh on my stomach. Shared a creme brulee with my Mom (again trying to avoid the temptation of chocolate mouse served in a chocolate cup because of said stomach issues). No tummy aches, and came home with Mom's leftovers which I fully plan on stealing.

Music
Awesome concert tonight by the Boise Philharmonic. Super long too OMG. We saw Chee-Yun play her violin through several songs. My god but can that girl play. She played the entire time without sheet music, and she was so fast I swear smoke came out of her fingers. O.O

The last song they did was an interesting one. They had a local judge narrate the piece. Apparently it's an opera without words. When it's performed they will usually publish programs to go with it that the original composer wrote up to explain his whacked out ideas. LOL The director thought it'd be more interesting (and far more cost effective too I'm sure) to just have a narrator read it aloud instead.

It was an autobiographical piece about the composers obsessive stint as a stalker trying to woo an opera singer. It didn't work out so well for him, and he kept at it for three years. Three opium filled years. *snerk* Very interesting music. If only I could remember the name of the piece...

End of the World
Yeah, not so much. But I did have a killer weather/cold induced migraine and felt like I might die. And my feet were pretty close to falling off after wearing high heels.

Does that count?

:D Am off to bed to sleep off my cold and try to get rid of this damn migraine. Hope y'all had a good apocalyptic night!

Got three hours of sleep last night before I woke up bright eyed and bushy tailed. That lasted about 3 or 4 hours before I crashed again. Woke up really groggy. You know, the kind where you walk into walls and it takes you three tries to make coffee because you keep missing steps?

HP FanFic Rec
I've been reading the cutest story. It's slash with a Harry Potter/Voldemort pairing. Not my usual cup of tea, but the author of this one was absolutely brilliant in the touch of humorous schmangst that's spread throughout the entire story. It's not currently finished, but it's regularly updated.

Title: The Black Bunny
Author: Windseeker2305
Summary: Harry's had it with his destined role after the Order does something he can't forgive. Now he's done with both sides of the war and wants to be left alone. But since when have his wishes ever counted for anything?
Pairings: Harry/Voldemort, Draco/Weasley Twins
Warnings: Slash, Mpreg,
Spoilers:
Voldemort is a bunny animagus, and Harry calls him Bunnymort. *cacklesnort* How adorable is that?


A Night Out
My mom and I were invited to the symphony. I love music like that! Mom and quickly realized though that we're very short on clothes to wear to such an event and we're going out shopping tomorrow. Hopefully I can find something cute! I'm thinking of getting a maxi skirt and blouse. Simple and easy. Not entirely sure though.

All Gaga'd Out
Lady Gaga is freakin' everywhere for her new album. All over my Facebook games I see little tidbits for Gagaville and it's driving me nuts. She's quickly reaching saturation critical mass with me.

Now I say this knowing full well that if Tokio Hotel pulled the same stunt I'd be all over it and squee'ing like the fangirl I am.

While we're on the subject of musicians...
I actually watched a music video that wasn't Tokio Hotel. I know, weird but true. I'm in love with the latest single from Beyonce. It's got a sweet retro beat to it that just makes me smile. Just caught the video today it it brought tears of righteous joy to my eyes. Women kick ass, don't we?

Day 18 - Favorite song from Schrei (audio of video)


This song is one of the first ones I fell in love with from this band. It's always been a favorite. The original video to this song is charming, but the reworked version they did is my favorite. So, I'm cheating since this is the one for the Scream album and not the Schrei, but it's in English and I like the visuals for this one better.

Day 16 - Post whatever you want of them (:

w00t!! I've been waiting for this day. I'll just give you a mish-mash of a few favorite things that aren't on the list.

...starting with fan art...

This is the cover for the story "The Meridian Hour" by [livejournal.com profile] cynical_terror and [livejournal.com profile] undrockroll. It's an awesome story (twincest), but also the cover artwork is so pretty. I stared at it for hours the first time I saw it because they so flawlessly blended the faces of the Twins.

No idea who made this one, but it cracks me up.

...a few icons...
(no idea who made the icons... but I usually pick these up from the Tokio Hotel Europe fan club)


...and a fan-made video (the first one I fell in love with):

Day 15 - Favorite live performance

This one is probably a shocker for y'all, but my favorite performance was when the Twins did "In Die Nacht" live during their Zimmer 483 Live DVD (from that album's tour). I love this song, and I love this performance. I have other favorites, but none of them quite live up to this one for me.

Day 05 - Picture of your favorite album

Choosing a favorite album is a tough call. I like all of them. The Spring Nicht album is a personal favorite. The Scream album I treasure as the first of their albums I ever bought. I love all the songs on that one. At the moment, I think I'll just have to go with a current favorite as it's the one I listen to most often these days.



Plus, the album itself came with some great band photos, like this one of the Twins:

...who just happened to be rock stars, and they've been left to their own devices.

The video follows the German band Tokio Hotel briefly throughout their day on their stop in Madrid during their promotional tour. They've released a new album this week in Europe and the USA titled Humanoid (in German and English versions). You see here mostly down time leading up to each appearance.

It just cracks me up. Boys will be boys, whatever the circumstances. LOL It's funny to watch even if you're not a fan. Enjoy!

This is from Facebook, but there's a lot of graphics folks on my flist that I thought might get a kick out of this one too. I'm not tagging anyone here as it would be a long list... LOL. If this pique's your interest, consider yourself tagged. Note, I adjusted the rules a smidge to suit LJ.

ETA: I just realized I didn't even bother with resizing it to proper album dimensions. *resists urge to start all over and redo it and settles with inline resizing*

*****

Create your band's first album cover.

1 - Go to "wikipedia." Hit “random”
or click http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 - Go to "Random quotations"
or click http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

3 - Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days”
or click http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 - Use Photoshop (or similar) to put it all together.

5 - Post it and tag the friends you want to join in.

*****
Behold, my first album cover. Apparently I'm either an import, or some sort of alternative band. Yes, the photo is food (a sandwich) if you're wondering. My band name, if you can't read the font, is Latakia.

Yes! I knew there was one out there. I managed to find a full length studio recorded version of my current favorite song, "In Die Nacht" by Tokio Hotel.



I know, I know y'all are giving me that WTF?! look. *scowls and pouts* Shut up!

*squees and goes off to listen to it repeatedly*
