(no subject)

Since it has been a million years since I posted here, here is some news, selected more or less at random from my life:

+I saw Childish Gambino with Laura Thursday night. Best moment: people (literally the entire crowd) hear the band playing during the second encore, and, identifying the music as the melody of the last song on the new album, begin to sing the hook. Donald signals the band to stop playing and everyone keeps going; when it hits the time to start the verses, he sings half of the first verse and then stops.

"Okay, that's not what we were going to play, but it's dope that you guys know that."

He also did some freestyling that punned gladdest-->Gladys Knight-->Knight-Ridder.

+My parents, unsolicited, sent me a huge chunk of their tax return that will take a big bite out of my remaining medical bills. I have some mixed feelings about it, but practicality wins the day and I will take it. Have got to cut out some time to go home this summer now, though.

+Have been pretty happy with my production in RP lately. There is something about trying to fill Andrew Hussie's planet-sized shoes that inspires you to push the limits of the medium. Among other things I have worked out a method to convert email chains into fake-threaded OOMs using tables and find-and-replace that will hopefully revolutionize threading by email, if I ever get it written up.

+Six months after the death (and eventual resurrection) of my laptop, I am finally getting all of my music consolidated in one place; I did not managed to get it all off in time, and somehow I wound up with music on my phone mp3 player that wasn't on ANY computer. And I have bought CDs since then, too, that are only on the new box. But I think I have everything in one database again. I think. Now to jam all 15 gigs into one unwieldy, themeless playlist that I will put on shuffle and play forever.

(Yes. I have been informed before now, by more than one person, that this is the wrong way to listen to music.)

-Least favorite roommate, moving out, stole all my remaining toilet paper and left me some kind of biting insects that woke up one day with no meal ticket and just scurried down the hall. Early suspicion was bedbugs, which would be a nightmare, but I am leaning more towards fleas at this stage of the investigations. Either way, blearrurughggh.

On the balance, though, I am feeling pretty blessed. Therefore, stealing a meme I really like the looks of, from [personal profile] silveraspen:

Leave me a comment, and I'll reply with something that I like about you.

This is also the way I listen to music! ALL MUSIC SHOULD GET EQUAL OPPORTUNITY LISTENING TIME. That is my stance and I'm sticking to it.

UGH FLEAS. I hope it's only fleas. I'd be safe and wash all my bedding in hot water and spray down the mattress with bleach water. Not to sopping wet, mind.

Yay blessings!

I have one playlist that's everything but I don't listen to it often. I just like the chance of knowing, all my music is somewhere.

*swears about fleas*

I am sorry, man. Suck. But yay on replacing/refiling your music!

I do not think that there can possibly be a Wrong Way to listen to music.

Ugh about the unwanted roommates. Goo luck getting rid of them!

It would have been! But I understand the process anyway. :D

- and aw, actually, I'm happy you picked that thing. It was what I needed to hear, apparently.

Yay for consolidation of music collection! And yes, that is very frequently how I listen to my own collection too.

How was Passover?

What I like about Batya: You are such a caring, compassionate friend, and I feel like the basis of all our interactions comes out of love. We RP a lot, but in some ways it's like cooking, or opening your home to friends, or nerding out over the little details, or filking--it's a way to build community, to give out of yourself in a way that builds bonds and leaves you (hopefully) richer than when you started.

That's how I listen to music too! Well, about half the time. The other half of the time I listen to my smaller (but still giant) otherwise-themeless playlist of "music I know doesn't annoy me no matter what mood I'm in."

I do make other playlists, mostly character-specific ones, but I only occasionally actually listen to them. Oh, and I have a Japanese-only one that I listen to sometimes when I'm doing Japanese homework but want music on. Other than that, it's the giant themeless playlist shuffle all the time.

Also, auuuuuuugh, biting insects. AUGH. I hope you can get rid of them cheaply and swiftly!

I have... *checks*... 70 gigs of music in iTunes. Yikes. I should probably do something about that.
