NaNoWriMo Day 2! I’m still on track. Heck, I’m even a little bit ahead. Just a tiny bit. But I’ve got a WORD WAR scheduled for today!
Hey, speaking of Word Wars, if you want to join in mine, I’m planning one every Sunday at noon for 10 minutes. They’re a great way to smoosh a few hundred extra words into a day. Post in the comments if you do it, and how many words you got!
This is the song of the day. Enjoy!
I love this song. It’s got a great beat and the lyrics are fun. Listen, minions!
Happy Labor Day!
It’s nice to have a day off work and school; however, we can’t forget the true spirit behind Labor Day’s inception whilst we party.
Er, actually, the point of Labor Day was to celebrate the American worker and to recognize that without their hard work and dedication, this country wouldn’t be as super-de-duper as it is. So thanks, workers! Party on! This one’s for you!
I heard this song on the radio a few days ago and I was digging it instantly. The lead singer is Taylor Momsen, who was in the Jim Carey version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. She’s grown up well. I love her voice!
I’m in a language class this month. Yay!
No seriously, yay, I love Farsi! I love Persian food even more. Mmmmm kubideh. Put it in my moouuuffff.
Anyway, the point of mentioning that is that, with both my Farsi class and my new teslapunk novel with Oriental flair, I might go a little overboard with posting Middle and Near Eastern stuff. So get ready for carpets and mosaics, y’all!
Oleander is a longtime favorite band of mine, and this is a (newer) favorite song.
There’s not much to say about this song. It’s just amazing!
Also: whee, 50th post! I think this is a personal best for me. Yeah yeah, I know, that’s really pathetic. When I get to 100 I’m going to feel like a rock star.
Sad song today! Music helps me write, so when I’m in the middle of a sad scene, I need a sad song.
There’s a version of this featuring Christina Aguilera, but I like this version better.
P.S. I’ve been super sucktacular keeping up with blogging lately. Finals are in two weeks, plus Cyrus’ birthday, plus various other things. When it rains, it pours! And today it snowed, so… yeah. Home stretch, though. I can do it!!!
I don’t know where Part I is, but I don’t think I even need it. I love Part II enough!
This is on my writing soundtrack for Venator, the second in the series. I know a lot of people who can’t write if they’re listening to music with lyrics, or even any music at all. I guess whatever floats their boat, but I can’t write without music. Moar musics!!
AWOLNATION! I can’t hear this song and not think of Connor.
