For When Average Just Doesn't Cut It

Nothing Is So Good It Lasts Eternally...
Unless it's the version of 'I know Him So Well' as performed by John 'My Man Crush' Barrowman and Daniel 'He Plays Rod In Avenue Q' Boys, which is far better than the Elaine Paige version, and which I've thoughtfully provided for you here:

I know my Flist is full of Barrowman fans, so go on people, treat yourself!

Where Does The Pollen Go?
I was really wanting to watch Grease 2 again after seeing the actor who plays Goose (Christopher MacDonald) in an episode of ST:TNG so I tried my usual online movie place but it wasn't there. After Googling it I came across a site called iSofa, which appears to pull clips from YouTube about your search (with good accuracy as well). So I was soon watching the videos of the music scenes from Grease 2 when I came across this:

It's obviously been done for a school project and some of the acting is atrocious but it's well done all the same. Highlights are the students who plays the teacher Mr Stuart (Tab Hunter) and Lorna Luft's character (Paulette).


Haven't been around as much as I've had a couple of busy weeks getting ready at work for the new students who start arriving today. Another year filled with drunken antics to look forward to...not! At least I should have two fairly quiet nights this week (tonight and tomorrow night) as they are not all going to be here by then and won't know what's going on or available to them.

So what's happened recently? Well, I finally managed to get my mage character in World Of Warcraft to level 80, which means I can now start the long process of gaining achievements for all the instances and raids available and enter the Argent Tournament. I am planning on doing a piece about magecraft in the near future so hopefully someone new will read this blog as I don't think any of my current friends actually give two figs about WoW! :p

The contract for the house has been renewed for another year which means this place is turning into a world record for me! If we move out next September I will have been here for three years - the longest I've managed since I left my parents house back in 1998 is only 1.5 years. Finally put some pictures up in the living room and found a lamp so the living room now feels quite homely.

The Date...Collapse )

And now for something completely different!

The Pon Farr May Come To An End...
The Bigsy has a date this Friday...and is rather nervous!

I haven't actually ever been on a date (all my relationships have kind of just happened) so I have no idea what to expect and am not looking forward to 'small talk' - mainly because I'm crap at it!

Also, it feels kind of like I'm being forced into it (despite actually liking the wee lassy) because Christian allowed his drunken alter ego to interfere at karaoke on Tuesday night along the lines of yelling "just f*!k for Christ's sake at both of us (whilst we were standing next to each other). Talk about pressure, jeez!

I guess I'd better explain the Pon Farr reference for those non-Star Trek fans on the FList! The Vulcan race in Star Trek go through the Pon Farr every seven years where they are genetically forced to mate. I've been single for six years and all my friends (who are geeks) keep saying that I'm Vulcan because it's coming up towards seven years...this is it! This is why I'm single!

Anyway, what I'm asking for (and know I will get in abundance from violetcreme even without asking for it :D) is ideas a) for the date which will probably be pub related and 2) some ideas for small talk...

So basically...


Wanna Touch My Body?
        One...We're Rollin!

My music taste has expanded yet again.

        Two...I Wanna Hear You Scream!

Again thanks to Eurovision.

        Three...I'm Gonna Have A Rush Tonight!

Weirdly I'm gravitating towards Eurodance now.

        Four...Like You Have Never Seen!

Thanks to Waldo's People at Eurovision this year with 'Lose Control' I started listening to Eurodance and although it's not something I could listen to all the time, there are some amazingly uplifting songs available that really make you feel better when things aren't going well!

So I present two of them to you for your general mood upliftingness!

The first is 'Lose Control' by Waldo's People which has an extremely catchy chorus and deceptively simple but effective lyrics. violetcreme is gonna hate it!

The second song is 'Love, Sex & Sunshine' by German Eurodance band, Mr. President. This is rapidly becoming one of my favourite songs of all time, and considering some of the songs at the top of my list, this is a big surprise!!! Insanely catchy all the way through awesome fun to watch the video, it even has a Steps style dance routine thrown in for good measure.

Look out for the crowd scene at 2:37 and tell me if that is actually Alan Cumming there or not?! Enjoy!

I apologise for not hiding the videos but the LJ Cut doesn't seem to like only having media under it and goes very funny and it annoys me that it's not doing what I want it to do!

Lyrics of the moment:

I know you wanna have love, love, love, sex and sunshine
I know you wanna have fun, fun, fun, but you are not the only one
I know you wanna have love, love, love, sex and sunshine

You wanna kiss me once
You wanna kiss me twice, ah ha ha
You wanna lick me up
Just like a bottle of ice
You take me to the beaches
You want me on the floor
No matter what I give to you
You will be screaming for more

I know you wanna have love, love, love, sex and sunshine
I know you wanna have fun, fun, fun, but you are not the only one
I know you wanna have love, love, love, sex and sunshine

Mr. President - 2003

The Master Cape...
Has anyone noticed that in the 'Sound Of The Drums' Dr. Who episode, when tThe Master is stood by himself on the tarmac just after Martha's family have been put aboard the plane for transfer to the Valiant, that his coat is being worn like a cloak with that fantastic red lining showing as it billows in the wind? Very good throw back to the 70's Dr. Who episodes when The Master actually used to wear a cloak that had (I think) a red lining!

Just thought I'd point it out and share this awesome picture I found of The Master declaring his love of a certain sweet!

Get Jelly!Collapse )

Lyrics of the moment:

"I can't decide
Whether you should live or die
Oh, you'll probably go to heaven
Please don't hang your head and cry
No wonder why
My heart feels dead inside
It's cold and hard and petrified
Lock the doors and close the blinds
We're going for a ride

Oh, I could throw you in the lake
Or feed you poisoned birthday cake
I wont deny I'm gonna miss you when you're gone
Oh, I could bury you alive
But you might crawl out with a knife
And kill me when I'm sleeping
That's why

I can't decide
Whether you should live or die
Oh, you'll probably go to heaven
Please don't hang your head and cry
No wonder why
My heart feels dead inside
It's cold and hard and petrified
Lock the doors and close the blinds
We're going for a ride"

What exactly is the point of Twitter? I've had an account for a few months now because Miss C said it was awesome! I find it utterly pointless. I don't really want to know what someone is thinking of to the second they thought it and I find that it's far too much effort to keep checking the posts (even with an addon like TwitterFox to do it through). Facebook updates are much better as at least you can tell when you've replied to the post, whereas with Twitter you have to look at a replies list or that stupid little '@' sign next to someone's name. It's not even pretty or logical, and for someone who's anal about logical flow, it offends on the deepest level! Plus, I've never really been into this whole celebrity stalking thing...

So my account is gone. Good riddance to pointless rubbish!

Pretty Lady Has Amazing Fingers!
Don't know how many of you out there appreciate a well played guitar solo but I thought I'd post this after 'stumbling' on it a few minutes ago. Not only is the young lady in question kinda hot, she's also insanely good at what she does! Sounds sexist, but I've never seen this done as well by a woman before!
Amazing...Collapse )</div></div></div>
And now one from the boys! This is Emir Hot doing a rock ballad style guitar solo (improvised). Love some of the themes he brings in on this!

And now for something completely stupid! Keyboard cat!!!

Lyrics of the moment:

"Close your eyes and see my blue skies breaking through these dark clouds
You are the light
In my mind I see your red dress and your arms are reaching through the night
I'll never give up the fight
I'll go the distance"

- Bon Jovi (2002)

Hello everybody - found this on Stumble and thought that everyone deserved to see it. It is a choir performing 'Africa' by Toto. It's unusual however in that there are no instruments used in the entire performance (the drums are provided by a beat-boxer - a very good one as well as I forgot that it wasn't a human making the sounds).

Not only do they do the entire song but they also do the rain, wind and thunder effects with their bodies before the song and the entire thing really does sound like a storm brewing and then exploding in thunder. Genius orchestration and well put together and performed. All of the harmonies are present including a wonderful female descant towards the end.

Watch the entire thing because it really is amazing!

Mount Kilimanjaro This Way...Collapse )
Lyrics of the moment:

"The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what's right
Sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti
I seek to cure what's deep inside
Frightened of this thing that I've become...

80's TV Rocks!
I'd forgotten how many great TV shows Donald P. Bellisarius was responsible for! Take a look:

Battlestar Galactica
Magnum P.I.
Quantum Leap

He has to be one of the most creative and dynamic show creator/producers alive today! This also leads on nicely to another amazing show creator called Glen A. Larson, who shares creative and writing credits for the original Battlestar Galactica with Bellisarius. Mr. Larson was Bellisarius' mentor and therefore responsible for bringing us more shows than Larson, such as:

Battlestar Galactica
Buck Rogers In The 25th Century
Knight Rider
Magnum P.I.
Quincy M.E.
Team Knight Rider
The Fall Guy
The Six Million Dollar Man
