  1. The E3 Trailer for Prince of Persia that I downloaded a while ago on my Xbox 360.
  2. The haunting music from the trailer: Saeglopur by Sigur Ros.
  3. The Android app Shazam (originally developed for the iPhone) which told me what the music was without the need for me to do various permutations of the search: "Prince of Persia trailer music."
  4. My Playstation 1 memory card has somehow lost my save game data for my not-even-through-with-disc-1, but-spent-over-a-week-of-playtime game of Final Fantasy VII.

10 Albums

From [ profile] coffeeachiever: Think of 10 albums, CDs, LPs (if you're over 40) that had such a profound effect on you they changed your life. Dug into your soul. Music that brought you to life when you heard it. Royally affected you, kicked you in the wazoo, literally socked you in the gut, is what I mean. Then when you finish, tag 10 others, including me. Make sure you copy and paste this part so they know the drill. Get the idea now? Good. Tag, you're it!

The Rules? Only one rule. Two men enter, one man leaves. OK, here's another rule. Never get involved in a land war in Asia. Anyway, I made up 25 pieces of trivia about me. There are an additional 2 that are true...ish. Go ahead and figure out which is which.


Or not. Really, I don't care. This is just me getting all meta on Facebook (or LJ). Enjoy!

25 Untrue and 2 Unexpectedly True Things About Me... )

Magic 8 Ball

1. Put iTunes/WMP/iPod on shuffle.
2. For each question, advance to the next song.
3. Write down the song name no matter how stupid your friends are going to think it is.
4. Tag 5 or more friends + the person who sent it.

I'm not tagging anyone.

If someone says... )
thepeopleseason: (Default)
Rules: Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about you OR I've already read yours and think we have a lot in common.

Honestly, I'm not going to tag anyone because either you've already been tagged or you're getting tired of this whole thing...

I've done this before... )
thepeopleseason: (Default)
iPod, WinAmp, doesn't matter. If I tagged you, put your playlist on shuffle and tell me what the next 10 songs are. Then tag 10 of your friends and ask them to do the same.

Because, as we all know, you are what you listen to.

Results... )

Superman had come to town to see who he could rock.
He blew away every crew he faced until he reached the block.
His speakers were three stories high with woofers made of steel.
And when brought our set outside, he said "I boom for real."

He said, "I'm faster than a speedin' bullet when I'm on the set.
I don't need no fans to cool my ass, I just use my super breath.
I could fly three times around the world without missin' a beat.
I socialize with X-ray eyes, and ladies think it's sweet."

And then he turned his power on and the ground began to move.
And all the buildings for miles around were swayin' to the groove.
And just when he had fooled the crowd and swore he won the fight.
We rocked his butt with a 12 inch cut called "Disco Kryptonite."

Well, Superman looked up at me, he said, "You rock so naturally"
I said, "Now that you've learned to deal, let me tell you why I'm so for real
I'm Prez O.B. from outer space, I came to rock the human race.
I do it right 'cause I can't do it wrong,
That's why the whole world is singin' this song..."

For a while now, I've been reading blogs that one could very well call emotional voyeurism--from [ profile] postsecret to Found Magazine's [ profile] findoftheweek. The latest addition to these is Dear Old Love ([ profile] dearoldlove on Livejournal), a collection of anonymous short notes from old lovers to their estranged former companions. One that struck me today as especially clever was the following note:
I upgraded to unlimited texts for you. Now what?
Why, you ask, did I think that particular note was mentionable? Because the title of said post was "I'll Send an SMS to the World"

You fired!

Why hasn't anyone ever told me that there's a band out there which consists of four dudes with cellos who like to play Metallica covers?

You are all fired.
thepeopleseason: (tienxia) links to an Aurgasm post about Korean-American singer-songwriter Priscilla Ahn, who sounds to me a bit like Dar Williams.

A comedian named Russell Peters details why people of African descent shouldn't necessarily be offended around gibbering Mandarin-speakers. My brother often asks for "clarification" from my parents when they unknowingly channel Nathan Bedford Forrest through their native tongue.

And two memes from countessmary )

DragonCon is in a few days, and I'm feeling positively ambivalent about it. I've had so much work lately, I guess it's eating into my enthusiasm.

Hit the Alamo Jacks 3rd Anniversary Party last night and met up with the Sweetest Girl in All the World. We spent much of the evening playing Wordster on the bar crack video gaming machine with her ex-girlfriend's mom. It was good, however, meeting up with all the people I hadn't seen in a long while down in the Newnan area.

One highlight was hearing the opening "band" 8-bit Wonder, an act consisting of a dude armed with laptop, synthesizer, old Nintendo controllers, mixers, samplers and a mic, playing game-influenced Electronica/Dance reminiscent of VNV Nation crossed with whoever that band was that did "Pac-Man Fever."

Honestly, if you're going to put out a karaoke video game of rock ballads, what's the freaking point if you don't include Journey?

  1. Leave me a comment saying anything random, like your favourite lyric to your current favourite song. Or your favorite kind of sandwich. Something random. Whatever you like.
  2. I'll respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better.
  3. Update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
  4. Include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in the post.
  5. When others comment asking to be asked, you will ask them five questions.

From [ profile] countessmary, my first set of questions... )
thepeopleseason: (sincity)
[ profile] batnandu: btw, for the record, any story--movie, book, tv show, song--that's 100% historically accurate isn't a story, it's history
batnandu: which is why i like batman

In a clear example of the problem with Wikipedia, following my viewing of 300 Monday evening, my search through the content surrounding The Battle of Thermopylae has lead me to the urge to listen to Iron Maiden's Somewhere in Time. Points to whoever can trace the train of thought...

A few notable stories from Angry Asian Man

A marketing firm, SnapDragon, has released Ten Things Every Brand Should Know About Asian-American Youth. Of particular note:
The 15 minutes of seemingly benign American Idol fame for William Hung had a surprisingly negative effect on Asian-American students. There's a feeling that Hung perpetuated the worst stereotypes about Asian people and gave non-Asians permission to indulge in two years of racial stereotyping and mocking.
To which I say, NO DUH.

I didn't watch the Oscars, but the announcer indicated that Best Adapted Screenplay winner The Departed was based on a Japanese movie. Bzzt! Infernal Affairs (with Andy Lau from House of Flying Daggers) is a Chinese movie. Yes, I know we all look alike, you uninformed, ignorant round-eye.

The New York Daily News reports on a Chinese students' participation in the recent NYU College Republicans' 'Find The Illegal Immigrant' stunt. The piece recounts some of the troubling history of Chinese immmigration in America:
As early as 1850... )
Beau Sia, an Asian poet, posted an open letter to all the rosie o'donnells in response to her defense and half-hearted apology of her own 'ching-chong' remarks on The View. O'Donnell, after viewing the piece, has apparently taken his message to heart and sincerely apologized, all the racist, sexist, and ignorant shitcocks on YouTube, notwithstanding.

So last night, I ended up hitting a local bar for their Guitar Hero competition. Having played very little actual Guitar Hero II, I didn't sign up to compete, my primary reason for being there was to meet up with El Guapo, his brother [ profile] skander, and his other brother who to the best of my knowledge has no sort of blog. I get there somewhat earlier than the rest of the gang and mill about the bar while I wait for the Guapos. At one point one of the competitors walks up to me and asks, "Did you play at the competition at the Independent a long time ago?"

When I reply in the affirmative, he responds: "Dude, you're the reason that I play Guitar Hero!"

I'm not sure what to think of that.

Listening to the morning radio, I learned that the general contractor assigned to do roadwork on I-20 near Atlanta may be fined for exceeding the early-morning time alloted to blocking a lane on the interstate and causing a disproportionate amount of gridlock. Coupled with the recent news that Turner Broadcasting will likely pay some two million dollars for the media and police disruption of Boston as a result of the Aqua Teen Hunger Force viral marketing campaign, it occurs to me that if we're going to make people pay for screwing up traffic, then the purveyors of the Big Dig probably owe the city a pretty penny.

And finally, from [ profile] countessmary: Bold the series that you've seen for 3 or more episodes. Underline the series that you know for sure (or that you've seen them complete). If you want, add three more series (keep it in alphabetic order).

I added Beauty and the Geek, Cupid, and Psych.

this song/dance will not be featured at any future nuptial celebration of mine (pending bridal approval, of course).
