So [livejournal.com profile] second_batgirl and I have been IMing as we watch the Macy's parade, waiting for the Samurai Rangers to show up, because we are maybe too invested in this fandom. Y'know, if such a thing were possible. Anyway, this is the result.

Me: I liked Kylie's perfomance of this dong better on DWTS. Possibly because there was a lot more choreography and a LOT more shirtless male dancers.
Me: THIS SONG
Me: SONG
TSB: HAHAHAHA
Me: Of all the typos to make because I was watching the TV and not the computer...
TSB: HAHAHAAH

Also, there may be a few appletinis to blame on my end. In fairness, I've been up since 9:30 last night and had a full eight-hour shift at work, so I'm not being all "ZOMG IT IS TOO EARLY TO DRINK YOU ALCOHOLIC." Plus, I think the recipie that came with the appletini kit expected a lower proof vodka? I mean, it used like a quarter of the bottle per shaker's worth of 'tini. And the kit made two shakers worth. (I've only had one. The other has been mixed-and-in-the-fridge for a while, since cold helps lessen the alcohol taste of ...alcohol. Whatever.)

I discovered this on the So Bad It's Good section for music.

I don't know what they mean by "bad," it's just EPIC. You see, this is the full version of the Lucky Star opening as sung by the current group of the guy who sang the Dragonball Z opening. You have to listen through to the end, because it just keeps getting better.

So. I was a little hinky at Beyonce when she totally ripped off the Rich Man's Frug* from Sweet Charity for her one video**, which steals more from the look of the scene than the dance itself. Then she took this*** Fosse routine Gwen Verdon did and turned it into this**** which, despite having an entirely different look visually, has the dance which is still very clearly inspired by the Fosse. Do I despise her for messing with classics or, since she has apparently been completely open about the inspiration in both cases, enjoy that she's fangirling a choreographer who is very worth it, and bringing his dance aesthetic to an audience who might never have seen it? I don't knooooooow!

So, I've been watching a lot lately. Old School Power Rangers continues to be far crackier than I remember and full of awesome.

I found the first nine episodes of Zyuranger subbed, and it manages to be more and less cracky than MMPR at the same time, and quite entertaining.

The same subbers have also produced the first three episodes of Dairanger, which is where the Thunderzords and White Ranger come from. I've only watched the first two; I actually quite like it, even though I still really have no idea what the hell the villains mean to do, or any names whatsoever. I was worried after the first episode and a half that it was going to be nearly WTF-less, other than the Kirin Ranger (another boy yellow ranger, BTW) amusingly seeming to have something of a drunken-style fighting ('cause Kirin is a beer, after all), but then the Green Ranger did a fog attack that was basically as useful as Shabon Spray was for Sailor Mercury. AND THEN HE MAKES AN ILLUSORY FUCKING TRAIN HIT THE MOOKS. WTF. (Also, I wish MMPR had adapted the mook costume somehow. The heads are just black helmets except for a V showing pale skin and DARK red lips. No eyes. They're much cooler looking than the Z-Putties.)

I'm listening to the '90s London revival cast of Hair, and though John Barrowman has an excellent voice, the whole thing is absolutely soulless. The director seems to have gone through great ffort to make sure that the lyrics could all be clearly heard which effectively neuters the music. It's the rock musical. Half the point of the lyrics of some of the ongs is that they were just these blistering-paced lists that you weren't supposed to catch clearly. And then the protests chants are done with crisp diction and rhythm and not too loud and it's all just very "bless, they tried." It's quite possibly the only Hair album I don't remotely want to have the babies of. Sad.

Also, I've been watching QI/Quite Interesting. (I know that QI stands for Quite Interesting, but the internet has left me hazy as to which is the actual title. Certainly Fandom considers QI adequate, but... fandom.) I would ask why the panel show doesn't exist as a genre in the US, but I'm not entirely sure we have enough of the breed of celebrity who make the genre work. It's amazing fun, though.

I was talking to Elusion last night, and we got to talking about how NATALIE IMBRUGLIA ROCKS MY WORLD!!!!!!!!!! And his, somewhat.

And guess what? She's finally making a second CD!

**Dies**

If it's not released here in America, I'm going to kick all the record company execs who decided not to, then get it by was of Elusion. It probably won't happen that that'd be neccisary, but you never know.

By the way, if you hate Natalie because of "Torn," skip that track and listen to the rest of her CD. It's all good music, unlike most new releases which are a couple good songs and a ton of crap. "Smoke" is the greatest song ever, followed by "Here Comes the Rain Again" by the Eurythmics (Also great music-makers) and "Impressed," also by Natalie. "Smoke" is thoroughly un-"Torn." "Torn" is almost pop. "Smoke" is quasi-depressing and I sense some subtext about child abuse, though I might be wrong.

"Impressed" is half a step away from techno. The other day, band period was a study hall, so I brought my CD plaer and that CD, and had people try to guess who's CD it was by having them listen to "Impressed." Nobody guessed right, and everybody was surprised. 'Specially the girl who used to listen to the CD all the time. Then she said she usually stopped about track 6. **Kills girl for not listening to the whole CD**

And she's making a new CD! **Dies** (Yes, I know I told you that already, I'm just really excited.)

Writing is a very good stress reliever.

I wrote the second part of my book project last night, by hand, because my parents send me to bed so long before I'm tired that I've begun using that time for homework. Even though I was writing about why The Closing of the American Mind should not be on the list of books for the project, it really help... make things seem not so sucky. I wish I'd bbeen writing in pen. Pens that scratch the paper are the best thing to write with.

And the most evil things in the world of the violin are 4th-finger notes and the e-string. There is no point to 4th-finger notes. They make he tone (supposedly, I don't do them well) the same as the next higest string when it's open. I can change strings for one note easier than I can do the 4th finger. **Baps inventor of 4-th finger notes**

**Lightly baps inventor of e-strings, which are evil, but nowhere near as evil as 4-th finger notes**

The Auk is tonight!

That's always fun. It's a computerized quiz thing, and th Academic Challenge team does it every year. We get food, too.

And I've been printing out FF6 sheet music. I've gotten pretty good at Kefka's theme, for having printed it out yesterday... Sadly, I can't play Celes' them, becuse my left hand simply can't reach far enough to play the bottom part correctly in parts.

Grr. Stupid bell. Must go now.
