I tried so hard not to have too much caffeine after dark but I still had a ridiculous time falling asleep. Finally around 1:30 AM I took some melatonin and still ended waking up around 5 feeling restless.

While I was trying to get sleepy, I was playing video-hopscotch on youtube and found some hard rock/metal bands that I'm actually kind of into.


It seems like this might be the most melodic track this band has but I'm in love with it so much - even the screamy parts. The electronic overlay is what caught my attention at first and I had to keep listening. I was not disappointed. The main singer reminds me of the dude from Sleepthief and it's surreal.


I'm absolutely shocked that this tickles my fancy at all. Mm. I can't help but try to have eye sex with the singer every time he looks at the camera. This is something my best friend would be cruising to rather than something you'd find on my playlist, but there's something about it that I have to listen to it again and again.


This one is more my pace. The first video that caught my attention was really weird, but I really like this song and you can't even tell it's a live recording. I was dating a singer/songwriting for a little while and if they ever get to make it big, I think they'd have a style similar toe POTF. The lead's vibrato is sensational. I can listen to him sing all day.


I'm hoping to be able to explore more of each band's music today while I'm doing laundry. But first, I have to go shopping and spend my hard-earned monies.

I've forgotten just how much I love autumn.

Happy Equinox!

I hate that all of my excitement for this concert has shifted from seeing Linkin Park for the first time in about five years, to being so absolutely thrilled at seeing 30 Seconds to Mars performing for the first time ever in my lifetime. I just. I can imagine being one of a thousand faces in the crowd and letting the music cleanse me, and feeling the bass in my veins and chasing my heartbeat, and sharing these incredible moments with so many strangers. I know what our combined voices will sound like from the stage. I know what the sea of arms and the tiny sparkling ocean of our lighters will look like from the stage. And I will be a single soul in that collective army of bodies; I can't help but well up with tears in anticipation. Watching the music videos and thinking, "my God, how awesome is this going to sound in New York?" And wondering how many of these faceless strangers will be sharing the same range of emotions as I will have that night. It's horrifically overwhelming. My skin tingles with so much anticipation.

I hope I hear "City of Angels," "Kings and Queens," and I swear, if they play "The Pyres of Varanasi" to lead into "Up In The Air," I'm going to be a sobbing mess.


Four more days. I need to survive four more days. And then we lose ourselves to the music. My God, I can't wait. It's going to be so incredible.

So... like two weeks ago I made a post completely fangirling to the extreme about this video and got secondhand embarrassment reading it again so made it private not even ten minutes later because it was that awful.

But. We got a "performance" version. Meaning. Dance. Fuckyeah!

Link. http://youtu.be/2nxNwzXIdtA.

Video. Yes, because I do this.



The best parts? Everything. Lol. But seriously? 0:54 - Hoya and Dongwoo mirror-dancing each other. Best OTP in this fandom and they aren't even discouraging it. ♥ 2:43 - Dongwoo, one of our beloved rappers, my glorious bias, sings. SINGS. I DIE! I just. Buh. Dead. Beautiful youngest Sungjong finishes the bridge with his angelic voice and face and everything. I hate that he's growing up but he's just so damn beautiful! ♥ 3:12 - The last best thing, the tallest, looks the best at the lead of this formation. God! Why can't they put Sungyeol in the front of the dance more often! Goodness! Those moves! ~ And then he disappears to the back after a few wonderful flourishes. I Am A Sad Tay.

I'm so exited for this. Infinite always has the best dance videos, they're never disappointing. This is probably my favorite.

I got confirmation from my insurance company that my MRI is really truly going to cost $1,700 out of pocket all because my policy changed 23 days ago and I still have my entire deductible to pay. If I'd met my deductible prior to the test, the MRI would have been covered in full.



I hate my life.

And now I hope even more that they find something.

Well, I guess my best friend Laura and I just "broke up."

Growing up and growing apart are two totally different things.

Between bills, meds, and fuel, I've already spent my paycheck. I just got paid.

This shit is really starting to suck. Seriously. Something's gotta give.

I'm off work today. I really wanted to go in because I feel like we're (read: I'm) so far behind, but it's my day off and I'm not hot into the idea of working eight or more days in a row. I'm justifying staying home by getting shit done.

I've put away my laundry, made my bed, scooped the litter boxes, tidied my flat surfaces, picked up the floor, finally vacuumed, hung a few things with nails that my command hooks couldn't hold up, sprayed some deodorizer on the carpet because it's way too warm in the house to spend the energy scrubbing carpets today, took my meds (yes, this always has to be on my list it's so stupid), and vacuumed the floor in the small room where the litter boxes are. All in the five or so hours since I've been working. Woo!

I still have to clean out the moss bowl and roll my mosses, have Dad help me hang shelves for my skulls, and start tidying my drawers. I'd also like to get the bathroom clean for my mom, as well as move my smallish bookshelf to the foot of my bed. This may or may not be a great idea because this is where my mosses are, and if I do this, they won't get the direct sunlight they need for photosynthesis and better growth. Hmm. I can work something out for them.

In other news, after doing some budgeting, I'm much more broke than I thought. If I move enough money to my second checking out to cover all of my bills, each paycheck, I'm left with a little less than $150 to survive two weeks. Granted, this seems pretty decent but I've got some pretty bad habits to maintain and while I want to quit smoking I'm not putting my best effort into it because my coping skills are lacking. And Dew. I need to quit the Mountain Dew. God, this crap is so bad for me, I say as I take another sip.

My dad's been a pretty awesome house-spouse since the call center closed down last week. It's really nice having him help me with the dinner dishes, and things are actually getting done around the house. The handle to the freezer in the back room has been broken for months, probably over a year, but it's now fixed! You don't have to pull on the door to open it. He even folded my laundry so all I had to do was put it away. And there's always hot coffee. I hope he finds a great job soon, because our bills are expensive, but it's also nice getting to see him more often. ♥

I've been sitting around for a while now, so I should get moving again. Still much today and daylight is moving on pretty quickly.

Musics: THePETEBOX - Sweet Satisfaction and Panther Dance

I'm all over the musics lately, I'm sorry. I know I have some outstanding comments to reply to and entries I need to comment on but you have to see this if you've never seen him before.



This is THePETEBOX, an epic beat boxer that creates songs by building musical elements on top of rhythms using what appears to be a synthesizer and pedals. I'm obsessed with this guy because I've never heard anything like it before. The track I just embedded is new - only four days old but I finally got around to listening to it. It's part of his Live to Tape collection, in which I'm sure the entire song is filmed in one take.

I can't even imagine how much practice has to go into something like this.




The Panther Dance is my favorite track he's recorded and I'm obsessed because of the way he builds the song up and then disassembles it line by line for the conclusion. GENIUS.

Genre'd as beatboxing because I cannot find notation of an actual genre for this.
