Well its only been...over 4 months since I went to the HIM concert in Portland. So a review is much overdue. I did start and entry the day I came back but as you can tell it was never finished. Its the post labeled post in progress. This has been nagging me for awhile and now I finally have time. So here is what I recall based on notes I took after the concert, Mandy's post about the concert, some videos on youtube, and my own memory under a lovely cut.

I think this may be one of the best text messages I have ever received:

"I skipped class to buy him ticket hehe. oh and then i spent forty bucks at powells books. i love being a slacker"

Everything about this made me ridiculously happy.

I made Pocket choke on his ice cream cone. We were talking about my piercing and then he was giving me a bad time about leaving in December, so I said "I would only be staying here to get more piercings." Then he choked. You had to be there, but he likes my nose ring.

I have finally seen the Guru.

This crusty old guy told me I had a beautiful smile. It was unexpected and came at the right time. Because it caught me completely off guard and seemed genuine, it brightened my day.

Amazingly my piercing is a week old and it is doing well. I have managed to keep to the care instructions very well and no infections or anything. Go me!

I have been basically living off sushi and water. Granted it's sushi from the school bistro but hey it is better than some of the sushi at some of the restaurants around here.

This is awesome: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=00geU9cjFG8&mode=related&search=

Thursday night was the premiere of the new season of CSI. My roommate invited my friend powerpuffboy to come watch it with us because he has no tv and really wanted to see if Sarah dies. (Sadly, she does not.) This irked me a little because even though he is my friend, and we were going to watch it anyway, and I really don't mind too much if he comes over, she asked him without asking me first. It shouldn't bug me but it does a little bit. He called me afterward to tell me that he left his sweatshirt there and if it would be ok if he left it there till another day. I, of course, said yes, and now because of it I have gotten to meet the girlfriend. She was in town today and he decided to pick up the sweatshirt. She is a very sweet girl and I am glad I finally got to meet her.

It is weird being back here because everyone I know is at a totally new place in their lives then they were last time I saw them. I see more people that I know then I have any other school year but in completely new contexts. Pocket isn't an RA anymore, now he is a complex director assistant. The DAs that stayed are no longer my coworkers. There are people I lived with their freshmen years (my sophomore, junior and 1st senior years) are in my classes and it is the first time I have seen them since we lived together. The list goes on and on.

Friday, Hoobie and I went to Spirit. I could have spent forever in there. I was having one of those "I'll take one of everything please" moments. I managed to leave with only on purchase of an $8 top hat. How we may never know. Halloween is truly my favorite holiday. I'm going back on Tuesday because they are getting a new shipment in.

I am a little bummed because this weekend was a Zombie walk, nudie sushi night, and Fetish night and, for various reasons, I had to miss them all.

Another reason to go back to Spirit. There is this guy that works there. Do I really need to add more details? He is the one that told me about the shipment coming in and the Zombie night. He also went out of his way to say bye to me when Hoobie and I left the store. I wonder what costume he will be wearing this time.

Hairball and I made it to Saturday Market. She bought a fabulous hat. There are pictures of the fabulous hat. One day I may finish uploading photos to facebook and flickr and you will be able to see them. Hopefully this will remain a standing appointment for us for the rest of the season.

On Sunday, I dragged my roommate out of our room because I was tired of watching her mope about with nothing to do. We went to the mall and I now own my first HIM t-shirt. It was the first one I have ever seen in my size. We also went to target and the movies. Target was more entertaining than it should have been. The toy section and the holiday section had me practically drooling and I was able to price flash drives. We also both finally got to see The Simpsons Movie. It was well worth the wait. I was singing spider pig all the way home.

For the HIM fans: There have been a bunch of good links to listen to radio interviews on Valo Daily. I would make links to them but I have a feeling that by the time I post this some of the links would be expired and it is a lot of work to post that many, so you will have to search on your own. But they are worth the search.

Life and Whatnot

Thu, Sep. 20th, 2007 11:51 pm
spiralicious: Cereal Killer Mask (Hands off!)
Ok Tuesday I went music shopping armed with $40 in gift certificates. Shock and astonishment they actually had a copy of Venus Doom on the release date! I guess being good pays off sometimes (not really). I have listened to it once because I had too but I am waiting to give it the full attention it deserves and that I can't give it at the moment. The only thing I will say about it now is that If you are a Love Metal fan, you'll love it. If Dark Light is the best album in the world according to you, you'll hate it. I also bought Aerosmith by Aerosmith, Bam Margera Presents Viva la Bands vol.2, and The Greatest Songs Ever Written (By Us) by NOFX. My love for Aerosmith is well know so I am not going to explain that one. VLB v.2 I have been looking for since I heard it came out. I looked in new releases, I looked under V for various artists but I never thought to look under B for Bam (which is where I found it while looking for something else). It is an amazing collection but I have yet to watch the DVD that came with it. And I love NOFX. "Wore out the Soles of my Party Boots" is my favorite NOFX song. GSEW is the only album with "Wore out the Soles of my Party Boots" on it. Music shopping for me is a very serious buisness. I must carefully consider every album in the store and sort through my mental list of what I want, how bad I want it, and how to maximize my money. Because as much as I am obsessed with music I can't go shopping very often so I save up money (and gift certificates) to buy as much as I can in one sitting.
Wednesday was spent packing.
Today was spent moving in. It's kind of weird to be back. It is very weird to have a roommate again. It is also very weird not working at the area desk, but it was nice to find out they got nothing but love for me over there. I will go on tomorrow but for now I must go to bed because I am very tired and I have a job interview tomorrow morning.

Begginings 1/10

Mon, Sep. 17th, 2007 10:21 pm
spiralicious: Cereal Killer Mask (Hands off!)
So I haven't posted in about two months. So I shall try to catch up in small increments.
Fan-girling and related activities
Well first and foremost HIM has been on my radar the most because they have been doing the Project Revolution tour and the new album is coming out and Ville was in rehab so I spent quite a bit of time catching up at [Unknown site tag] . There were tons of photos and article scans coming in.

When Project Revolution was in San Fransisco, Live 105 did an interview with HIM (well it was just Ville and Mige if I remember right), as well as a couple other bands. The Interviewer was, perhaps, an idiot. He could have been having an off day, but it made the interview entertaining. I don’t know if it is still on Live 105’s website or not.

As I told Hairball, I have been a very good girl. The Venus Doom album is coming out soon (today in the us, everywhere else earlier) and I have managed to avoid all of it. Ok, not all of it I did watch the "Kiss of Dawn" music video and I have been reading the magazine articles but that is it. I want it to be a surprise. I didn’t do any of those stupid games at heartagram. I didn’t listen to any of the music, officially leaked or otherwise. I downloaded nothing. I watched no videos (other than the Kiss of Dawn video of course) fan made, record company made, or of concerts where they were singing the songs. I avoided reading the lyrics when they were posted. I have been very patient. I have behaved myself. But if I have to wait until I am at school to buy the album I may cry…or at least speak harshly to a clerk.

There are three versions of the Venus doom album. I looked them all up to decide which I was going to buy. I decided the regular album would be the one I would spend my money on. The special edition just didn’t look like it was worth it. But we all know that once I know for absolute certain that I will have my job and if there is a way for me to get the special limited edition I will snap it up as though my very life depends upon it. But I am not holding my breath.

I also have a ticket to the concert in Portland. I even sort of have a plan on how I am going to get there and back, but hopefully I can find someone to go to the concert with me and create a better plan.

They played the SNL that Hugh Laurie hosted. Yay! *fangirl-like squeal* Ok, so I am a bit sad and pathetic, deal with it. It was awesome and I loved it, his accent, I got to see him in a dress, the opening monologue, it was worth not changing the channel.

I went to the Slow Children’s concert at the Hideaway. It was good. It was nice to get out. I saw a lot of people from high school that didn’t recognize me and I didn’t feel the need to reintroduce myself. I also saw my friend that I shall call here Spazzy. She is just as crazy as ever. We got to talk for awhile. I met a girl that I know only from myspace. She is from St. Louis but recently moved to the area. It was cool and creepy at the same time. I haven’t even seen her on myspace for a year or so. She recognized me from my old picture and I recognized her screen name. I bought a cd, danced with a total stranger, and spent a few hours at Hippiewoman’s house. All and all I think I had a pretty full evening. I even drank, perhaps, a little too much, eventually.

I have been trying to frame my autographed Bam pic since I got home. Right at the beginning of summer I found a frame that I was going to decorate to make it more…Bamesque, I suppose. But then I lost the bloody frame. I found another frame that actually looks almost exactly like what I wanted to do to the other frame. So I bought I and put Bam inside of it, but of course, what happened? I found the other frame. So now I have gone out and got most of the stuff I need to decorate it how I want and I will figure out what to do about the I have two frames for one pic thing later.

I have also been reading far too much slash and smut in general. And you thought there wasn't such a thing.

Deep Breath

spiralicious: Cereal Killer Mask (Default)
I guess I shall do a real update.
Romeo is adjusting well. He still cries all the time but he spends more time with us. He explores the house more and has decided that everything he comes across is a toy. He is a very strange furball. Hopefully I will post photos next week.
I got sad news in my e-mail today. The courts denied stays for internet radio (I hope I worded that right). The only hope now is if congress brings the bill concerning internet radio to the floor for an immediate vote. If this doesn't work, Sunday the music dies.
There was also some happy news. I got paid. I totally forgot that at the end of June I would be getting my May paycheck. I don't know why I forgot this but that is a little under $600 I wasn't planning on dropped in my lap. It is around half of what I need for the school term and about a third of what I need over all. So that is something to be excited about right?
I also finally got to talk to Tina. She is in her new house and has internet. Sadly her bird has flown away. We did talk about my trip to visit her in nola after I am done with school. Because I have enough to visit or enough for a very cheep (aka non-existent) plane ticket. We did come up with an idea. She is diving up for Christmas. I could just ride back down with her. The problem is how do I get home. I still can't afford a plane ticket and one-way tickets are more expensive. Bus tickets are not that expensive though. I could ride the bus home. It is a very scary thought (2 days, 10 hours, and 20 minutes being the shortest ride, alone), but it maybe my only option.
I have very annoying neighbors. They moved in right before I came home from school. They bought the house just to fix it up and sell it. The problem is it is not selling so they have actually moved into it. As far as I can tell it is a couple and their little yappy dog. They are so annoying, sitting in their hot tub yelling at their dog at 3 am. I have a plan to get them back but where am I going to find a kiddie pool and a fat man in swim trunks?
I may see Jenny this weekend!
The job hunt doesn't go so good. I have checked in at Spotlight and it doesn't look like they are hiring at the moment but because I came in and checked my application is now at the top of the very large stack. I also turned in my application to work at the animal shelter. It sounds like they are still hiring but who knows. I shall have to wait and see.
Recently this: http://www.savetheinternet.com/ was brought to my attention. I have done what I can as far as contacting representatives and getting other people's attention. I am currently working on "telling the FCC my story." I tried doing it yesterday but my computer restarted by itself, as it often does, and I lost the long draft I had been writing so I am starting over. It honestly has me very stressed out and I know what is at stake. But I also know that anything major, such as losing access to Lj, myspace, or facebook, or suddenly having to pay a charge for the privilege, is most likely not going to happen overnight or without warning and even if it does I won't be able to do anything about it, including being able to pay for such services. So I am just going to do what I can and try not to let my poor overstressed brain get too strung out. I am also forcing myself to wait to update my facebook and myspace pages till I have other things worked out to help with my internet worries and stress. So far it is not working.
This is just the tip of my mental breakdown iceberg. Even with the good things that are going on I am left with a constant uneasy feeling. I listened to Uneasy Listening Vol. 2 by HIM and it made me feel amazing but it didn't last long.
Here are some quiz thingies to help lighten the mood:

Your Toes Should Be Black

A total rulebreaker (and heartbreaker), you're always a little punk rock.

Your flirting style: Wacky and a bit shocking

Your ideal guy: An accomplished artist, musician, or writer

Stay away from: Preppy guys looking for a quick bad girl fling


You're 85% Irish

Congratulations, you're a shining example of an Irish lass (or lad).
There's hardly anyone more Irish than you!


Dark Purple

To others, you seem a bit dark, mysterious, and moody.
In truth, you are just a very unique person who doesn't care what others think.
And you really enjoy your offbeat interests and friends.
You've decided that life is about living for yourself - simple as that.

Behold! I have a profile finally. Well, I added interests, weekly dose of HIM, and I started the "describe me" part of my bio. I also updated my myspace and facebook profiles. I am not done or satisfied with them but it is all I could do before I go home. I also have a ton of photos I need to post when I get home. I was supposed to have a lot of them up a week ago; some even before that. Sorry.

With all of my packing and cleaning I have decided to do a little mental house keeping. As you know I try to update fairly regularly but there are times I'm just not up to it for various reasons. That doesn't mean I didn't write an entry though, it just means it didn't get posted. I write on the bus all the time, (something I am really going to miss). So I have all of these un-posted entries cluttering up my mind, so I have decided over a period of time I am going to post them along with or instead of a regular entry until they are gone. So in the spirit of spring cleaning I am going to give you a brief preview of entries that are not getting posted but won't leave me alone anyway. Lucky you.

Forgotten Birthdays: I managed to miss both my great-grandmother's (101) and my oldest nephew's (17) birthdays this year.

The Erin Go Braughless party. This was part of my horrible St. Patrick's day I just refuse to relive it no matter how bad it haunts me.

My birthday is less then a month away. If I get another bath set I will scream.

I think I have said this before but I have heard that smoking can make your penis shrink a 1/2 an inch. There was a several page ramble to go with this but I think I will spare you unless you want to hear about it.

I had a massive debate on Ritz cracker cheese sandwiches vs. Ritz cracker peanut butter sandwiches. All you need to know is that peanut butter won. (Sorry Tini)

Most of you know I read a lot of Slash, so I had this long discussion about slash pairing names. To sum it up, even though it is not a pairing I read, my favorite pairing name is Dumb.(Dunn/Glomb)

Him is officially everywhere. I saw a wannabe Ville clone in Brookings over spring break.

Fangirling fangirls: I was going to gush over my favorite fanfic authors and fandoms but then I decided that it would just be better to try and stop being horribly shy and just come out of the lurking closet. Still working on that one.

This video disturbed me greatly http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4xEXfgjqtG8

My father has been watching the Riches (he has a thing for Minnie Driver) and he is convinced that Eddie Izzard used to go by Eddie Izzardo.

German guilt: This was a rather long rant about how my German speaking skills have gone to hell and that the only thing I use them for is trying to read through interviews in music mags and translating things for Hairball.

The Sharpie incident. See "The Erin Go Braughless party" above.

I had a very long rant trying to explain Ville Valo's mustache. The short version is "when you turn 30, you grow a mustache. It is something guys do."

I was going to sing the praises of valo_daily but it pretty much speaks for itself.

I was going to talk about all the disturbing commercials that have been appearing lately but I have been talking about them on and off for a while so I don't see the point in doing an entire post about them.

Islamic art and Architecture class was torture for many reasons, one was a certain individual that I may have a crush on. This is just too ridiculous to discuss further.

Yay my history of photography paper is done! Wait what? I have 2 more papers to write? Research papers?! And then I have finals! And sushi night was canceled!! *sigh* So why am I writing an entry? Oh yeah youtube obsession.

"Whiskey Lullaby" by Brad Paisley feat. Allison Krauss is such a pretty song and there are tons of youtube videos for I have discovered:
there are 3 POTC ones but this is my favorite:

WTF

Wed, May. 23rd, 2007 11:32 pm
spiralicious: Cereal Killer Mask (mige)
Oh what a day. Today started out rather pleasant. I was very happy. I had 4 amazing dreams, but then I looked at the clock and realized I missed class (well class was still in session but by the time I would have gotten there it would have been over). Which is very bad because we were going to get our midterms back today, the professor was going to tell us the syllabus changes and the girl who was going to give me notes from last time I missed class was going to give them to me today. I decided to got to class and catch people as they were leaving in hopes of at least getting the notes and an update, but then I fell asleep. When I woke up again, I had missed the office hours I was supposed to go to. I sent that professor an e-mail and I will try to catch her after class tomorrow. But I was woken up by venice knocking on my door. She needed advice because in order to not get kicked out of the university she needs to drop all her classes, but to stay in housing she must be a full time student, so she wanted to know who to talk to and how long she would have before they would make her move out after she dropped. She came to me because I am the Housing Ninja (a title Hairball gave me). So I helped her with that. I was happy to be helpful but a little sad she was having problems. Then I went to buy a slushie but got a giant cherry soda instead. Then I pretended to work on my papers a bit. Then I had to call mom and at the end of the conversation I had the guts to ask how Ruby was doing. Ruby died...MONDAY NIGHT! On top of being incredibly upset about my cat, I was pissed at my mom for not telling me. She had no intention of telling me and had several opportunities to do so because I have called home several times since then and she could have always called me. I told Martini and Hairball they are both upset and upset with my mother as well. So Martini made me a special entry on her lj and was doing the best she could to try to cheer me up online. She is a very good friend. And then I went to go find Hoobie in the dinning center. While I was there I checked my mail and I had two package slips. They made me feel a little better for three reasons: 1) the package slips said "coolest person ever" and "best DA ever" on them and they don't know what is going on,(I'm going to have to find to who did mail today and thank them), 2) it meant I had packages, and 3) Maiko was working and she always makes me feel better. The packages were presents from Mandy and the stuff I ordered from Amazon (that wasn't supposed to be here till the 4th). Mandy got me a very awesome craft book, that I will be trying out as soon as I can, a frog stained glass coloring book, and a very cute card. I love it all very much. From amazon I got Uneasy Listening Vol. 2 and the enhanced Summer Wine single. I also got something else that I might talk about in a friends locked entry at a later date. So I was very happy about that. Tini got me a present to make me feel better. Hairball and I went out for dinner and I was just kind of a Zombie mess. We talked about our picnic that we are having on Sunday and we might go to the mall on Friday. I haven't told Jenny yet because she hasn't been around to tell. So just when I was thinking I had no real friends, it turns out I have several truly amazing friends. Today has been very bizarre. I am both completely devastated and overjoyed at the same time, and I don't like it.

p.s. Yesterday wasn't all bad. I forgot that I got to talk with the fabulous Annie.

Remember when I said Tuesdays suck? Well...TUESDAYS SUCK! To continue with yesterday, I registered for classes yesterday. I only need to take three classes next fall and I found three that would make up the perfect schedule, one I don't really care for the professor but I love the subject matter, the other two are classes I like with professors I love. Unfortunately, the two with the professors I love are at the same time, so I can't take them both and it just screws up my schedule all the way around because nothing else really fits and meets the requirements I need. All I can do now and hope that I don't screw up my GPA this term and at least pass everything in the fall, because I have no wiggle room for screwing up. And considering how my papers are going and how my Islamic Art and Architecture midterm went, things are not looking good. Also I got my Limited Edition Love Metal Archives Vol. 1 dvd yesterday. You would think this would be a good thing but no. I was excited because my computer is supposed to work as a multi-region player (I'm in the US and the dvd is from the UK so the dvd isn't really compatible with my player). Anyway, This turned out to be a lie. The bonus disk worked fine. On a whim I tried the bonus disk in my regular dvd player and it worked there too, which is rather odd. So I tried the other disk and it didn't work, no surprise there. But it wouldn't work in my computer either. One of the players on my computer let me change its region but its temporary and I can only do it four times. So I watched it because I didn't know how long it was going to be able to. It is very good and very beautifully put together. I'll come up with a long term solution later. Then I got the kitty news. Then I went to work. I didn't get to nap before work and I had to work with BM last night. She all but admitted to being drunk and was her usual unhelpful self. Not that there is a lot to do on the 11pm -8am shifts but she doesn't do anything and then expects people to pity her cause she "works so hard and is up all night." She slept for 4 hours of her shift last night and last time I worked with her she slept for 6 1/2 hours of her shift. And of course I have an 8:30 class after work. I honestly have no idea what we talked about today. I took notes but I can't read them. Then I had to do to office hours to get a picture okayed for a paper I'm writing. She loved it and wants me to do it (its the cover of the Oct 2005 Metal Hammer with Ville Valo on it) but she wants me to bring in the whole magazine. I can't! And whats more on the instructions it says reproductions of the picture and she hasn't asked anyone else to include the whole magazine. I have scans of the cover and of the Him article (she wants me to include information from the article as well) but the magazine belongs to my friend and she is 2 time zones away. So tomorrow I get to go talk to her again and hope I can make my case. Otherwise I'm writing about a fashion ad like everyone else. Then I sent a text I shouldn't of as I was running to class. Again no idea what happened in that class either but I took much better notes. Then I had to run to the library. I have only been able to find 2 books for one of my research papers and I had to order one of them from another university and it isn't here yet. The paper is due next Thursday. I spent the rest of the day trying to get kitty news and calm Martini down( because I freaked her out with my text). Not even Euro Rock Radio cheered me up. I have also missed all meals except breakfast. My low blood sugar is very upset with me. Lets hope I don't waste tomorrow.

So many things have happened in the last couple days I haven't really had time to update.
Sunday: Dad called with an update on the graduation party plans. Mostly it was a guest list update. I told him My grandmother was coming but he has yet to realize that he hasn't told my mother about the party yet. Good thing I did so the fireworks are already over with, I hope. I know 2 of my sisters are not coming but the other one we aren't sure about. She got and award and will be flying to Chicago the weekend before and they are going to some sort of amusement park the weekend before that.
Monday: The Hoobie was released! And then I had an unrelated breakdown of some sort. I was really in rare form this time. I got a little better and talked to Martini for a little bit. Then I had to go to work. I attempted to work on my paper but ultimately I ended up making play-dough flowers for 2 hours. I was happy that I could help RC with his homework. He was a real sweetheart and let me be weird for awhile. I was kinda surprised when he walked in with a hair cut and blue hair. Did I mention That I also missed class? There is way more to this but I'm not going to go into it. I also ordered a bunch of stuff off Amazon.
Tuesday: I made it to class! Ok it felt like a complete waste of time but I got my midterm for my Origins of Abstract Art class. I got a B. Hooray. I also got my second History of Photography paper assignment. I have picked out several images to possibly do my paper on but I run them by the professor and she canceled her office hours this week. Oh and we have a Test in that class tomorrow morning and she didn't post the study guide until last night. I also got my housing contract for next year. My spirits were lifted a bit after finally talking to Hairball and listening to Him night.
Today: I am finally on the official graduation list now. I also finally got to talk with my Islamic Art and Architecture class professor about my paper for her class. She cried in class today. At work we had an end of the year meeting with all 3 area desks together. We sat through a presentation. Then all the superiors said their thank yous and such to everybody. I was one of the people singled out by name, which made me a minor center of attention later when we were having pizza and cake. I got to catch up with some people and I even got a hug and some congratulations. And DW was embarrassed around me for the 4th time in 3 days. Bless him. It was nice to catch up with CW, NC, DK, IL, MN, CO, and all the other lovely people than came and spoke to me tonight. I also think I have convinced my boss to dye a streak of her hair turquoise. Then I walked home and watched Jackass 2 again. And now since I have found my missing text books I'm off to go study.
I know this all sounds very boring. I guess you had to be there.
