Also this is me not bothering to correct the mediocre grammar in the aforementioned alphabet meme from Facebook.

The music meme:

1. Reply to this post and I'll assign you a letter.
2. List (and link) 5 songs you love that begin with that letter.
3. Post them to your journal with these instructions.

Well okay, she assigned me the letter "L". In no particular order:
  1. Let The Monster Rise from Repo! The Genetic Opera. One of my favorite songs from the movie. To me, it shows the true relationship between Shiloh and her father, though that could be debated.
  2. Leekspin (Liotuma). This video happens to be a fan video of Super Smash Bros Brawl, which is one of my favorite video games that I don't own. (Because, like, it's for Wii, which I don't have.) Completely addicting song-- I always find myself bobbing my head to the rhythm (or, in one case, twirling a pen between my fingers).
  3. Last Order (Crisis Mix). Oh man-- I'm a sucker for instrumental-type hard rock stuff anyway (like Flock Off!, Griffon's theme from Devil May Cry) but this is just so fitting for Final Fantasy VII. Especially if you watch Last Order. It really illustrates the struggle Zack had trying to get him and Cloud home in one piece-- but then again, I've been told I overanalyse music. So, in short, it's badass, awesome guitar riffs, have a listen.
  4. This one, I had trouble deciding, so I'll link to two: Lapis and Longing, both by Gackt. (I felt like having two Gackt songs on here would be cheating. Frankly, I could have filled all five with Gackt songs and still had one "L" song left over.) Longing is badass for several reasons: first of all, it's classic Gackt. Secondly, it's the sub-theme for Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerberus, which I love. (Reason number two that it's cheating: I already have a FFVII-related song on here.) Thirdly, it's really easy to rock out to. Wicked awesome guitar riffs, Gackt's amazing voice, and some Gackt-style bizarre music and sounds thrown in in the middle. And Lapis; it's a very calming song. It makes me feel like I'm in the middle of a rainstorm, even if it's sunny out. It's quite soothing, and frankly, you'd have to be deaf not to concede that it's pretty. (Even if you don't like it, for whatever reason.) I love the piano in it, and Gackt's voice is just beautiful. (I could go on for hours about this song alone, so I'll stop here.)
  5. Once again, I had trouble picking, so two: Love's Requiem and Lose You Tonight, both by HIM. Love's Requiem was hands-down my favorite song for pro'lly two years in a row, on and off for more like five. And I'm still not sick of it. The guitar is very cool-- in a soothing kind of way-- and the lyrics are beautifully poetic. Lose You Tonight is a much more recent love; it's here for basically the same reasons as Longing. It's classic HIM, and it's  totally badass. (And the album it's off of, Dark Shadows and Brilliant Highlights, is one of my favorites. Like I said, classic HIM.)
So this was both much easier and much more difficult than I thought it would be; easier in that I came up with probably six more, but more difficult in that I had to go through most of my YouTube favorites and a couple of music folders before the ideas came flooding in.

So yeah, comment away, I'll give you a letter, do it if you want. It's kind of fun to explore. Especially the ones that you go "heeey, I forgot about this one! I love this song!" or "dude, I have this? Nostalgia~"

oh yeah...

...did I mention I made a Barnes & Noble order? No?

Well, I ordered two games from GameStop through them, and a movie. The movie, Stir of Echoes, should be in sometime tomorrow. The games, Final Fantasy X and X-2, have been shipped and should be here... soon.

And as I'm playing through Kingdom Hearts II (borrowed from Tayla) and met Auron, I recognized him as one of Yuna's Guardians from Final Fantasy X, and wondered why in hell Hades called him "the mother of all bad guys"-- and why the mother of all bad guys would be one of Yuna's guardians!

I cannot wait to play this game.

Also, Lulu looks like Lucy Liu. (Sexiest thing to ever walk the planet ♥ Gackt is second only to her.)

Psh. )

Don't forget to tag 8 people!
Ohh yeah. Um. I don't usually tag people, sorry, and even if I did, I doubt anybody I tagged would actually do it. So. I'm a poor sport, sorry, I am "refusing to do that."
(If I were to tag people, it would be the people on my friends list that I actually know. Personally. There are more than eight of them, let's see if any of them read my journal or-- even more shocking-- actually do it.)
