"keep your powder dry and warm
through the coming darkest storm"

...sings Tom Cochrane, and suddenly I am envisioning AU steampunk SPN spinoff-ish thing in which Samuel Colt's daughters* were kickass gunslingers who totally test drove the demon-killing Colt for him.

*cough* Yeah, I don't know either. But it would be EPIC!

Instead, I am writing about far-future explorers from Earth landing on another planet and being beseiged by sentient plants! Yeah. >.>

All the fear that's sent your way
Through your eyes you might wash away
When you can
Still your lantern's strong and bright
Even through the darkest night

All those paper tigers
All their lies they might have sold you
Might be wasted on
One so young that you're old again
She walks out through the wind and the rain uh-huh

Paper Tigers

*Daughters which he never had, I know, Wiki sez so. :p Wife would also work!
**Also, yes, (gun) powder, and the keeping thereof, are anachronistic to Colt revolvers. Hence the steampunkishness.

Here in my nekonexus,
I feel safest of all.

No promises, but if I get inspired, I'll post it. ^_^

That 20 first lines makes a poem music meme.

Right, so, I had to truncate these to make it poetic. >.> Long-winded lyricists dominate my playlist. And it really didn't gel. Maybe because I wasn't in a mood for it. *shrug*

This conversation's boring )
nekonexus: (brilliant)
Through a million days through a million hazy nights
we sit, amusing in our politics
Through wine and talk, through sex and art we fill our time
and numb ourselves with what's to come
I know that it's the end of days for moderates
but thinking people are thinking still

Is it brilliant where you are
where the lights are low
Is it brilliant where you are
where the lights are

So far so good
Stumble through life so complicated it's nearly impossible
And we lost our way like I knew we would
and keep it together somehow anyway

Woke up from an impossible dream
and we talked and we spoke and we drank and we sang
and we danced and we live and we love and we give
without question or faith then we fight till we hate
and we hope and we pray that this violence will fade
It's always the same it's the same life

Is it brilliant where you are ...?

lyrics by David Usher


Three men walk into a bar: a socialist, and environmentalist, and a separatist... but I don't want it to be a joke.

I want a government I can believe in. ~_~

Need to remember to listen to music at work more often, especially if I have a scrap of spare time and want to write. I usually forget what a creative stimulus it is, and how listening to even familiar songs can spark the urge to write new bits about certain worlds.

And then there's songs that just beg for ficcing, like this one:

Gin )

Which is somehow Aidan and Yugi, and also not.

And there are songs that are always Node-related (and not just Rob Thomas/mb20/Tabitha's Secret), and songs that remind of Carnival, and somehow Ever the Same still pushes a Saiyuki button and yet All That I Am is now Broken World AND Kaleb. *eyes it* And... yeah.

Moar. damnit i need icons

Random and incomplete thoughts for a Heroes vid featuring David Usher's "So Far Down" which I shall never do because I don't have the time to invest in learning to vid. Nor a Mac. Yet. Oh Apple refurb store, you tempt me with your $999 Macbooks.

So Far Down )
nekonexus: (Rob - thankful)
The unguessed answers to the lyrics meme, with downloads.

1 - Phil Collins, We Said Hello Goodbye -- "We said goodbye to a dear old friend..."

2 - Wide Mouth Mason, King of Poison -- "He was an all-day bar sitter with a cocked hat on his head..."

5 - Fiona Apple, The Child is Gone -- "Darling, give me your absence tonight"

14 - The Tea Party, Great Big Lie -- "God is pressure, God is pressure more or less"

17 - David Usher, My Way Out -- "Standing at the edge, edge of it all"

18 - Meryn Cadel, The Sweater -- "Girls, I know you will understand this and feel the intrinsic incredible emotion"

23 - Wide Mouth Mason, Change -- "Did you bring any thing that you made yourself?"

And that's that! ^_^

I thought I heard you talking..."

Song lyrics....

Driving away from the wreck of the day
and the lights always red in the rearview
desperately close to a coffin of hope
I'd cheat destiny just to be near you

and if this is givin' up... )
nekonexus: (muichimotsu)
I can see you were right about this place... )

nekonexus: (must think...)

From: "phone - a device which enables communication, and the transmission of information"

And: "clue - something that serves to guide or direct in the solution of a problem or mystery."

Also used in the expression of opinions such as "get a clue" - which implies that the addressed party is lacking some basic piece of information vital for appropriate interaction.

A "cluephone" then is a blunt, imaginary device by which an obvious, important, and often willfully overlooked "clue" to problems may be applied quickly and forcefully to the "clueless" person's mind or body via the quick intervention of said "phone," which may or may not be constructed of hard plastic, but which generally requires answering in some fashion.


I feel stupid,
but it's something that comes and goes
I feel stupid
but I know it won't last for long
I feel stupid
but I think I been catchin' on...

(cluephone directed at myself, here. >.< )

I finished a fic! I finished a fic!


We'll see if it still feels finished tomorrow. But it's Tidal which I started shortly after I finished Electrical Storm for the Y-con '04 anthy. And at approx. ~11k, it feels like an accomplishment.

... 11k in two years. Yeah. Go me. >.<

For now, have inspirational lyrics )
nekonexus: (Hakkai)
Because I mean to do something (Saiyuki-wise) with these, sometime, maybe. Except it says it all already.

lyrics )
nekonexus: (Saiyuki)
Been meaning to post this for a while now. Song lyrics that could be a Saiyuki crackfic in and of themselves. Really. But if anyone is inspired to actually write one, I would be greatly amused. ^_^
