That these were both first-year spells straight out of Goshawk's Standard Book was either a sign that he ought to either give it up and move straight into St. Mungo's, or a mark of his own incompetence in the face of impending doom and/or parenthood.Collapse )

Just read this amazing article and I'm feeling once again optimistic about the 2010s. I do believe that aggressive rock, not indie acoustic pop rock, is coming back and it's getting political again and I want to be a part of this. Not as a musician, I mean, but a part of contributing something to the general culture, something timely and unafraid. I do not want to look back on this time period and feel like I was under anaesthetic for all of it. I'm finally getting old enough to be alive, and this decade is very important, as it's my 16-25 decade, which is obviously of great personal importance. It kind of sucks that I was born in the middle of a decade, but I've heard that decades generally "start" in the middle. Like, 2007 was kind of the epitome of the 2000s in culture, and I was thirteen then, so by 2017 I'll be twenty-three, which is a good age to take things in.  
     As for the riot grrrl revival: I don't want this to be an aesthetic or style nostalgic thing. I want it to be transgressive, political, painful and new. I only want it to be a revival in the sense of being inspired by music with feminist themes, all-female bands and an anti-commercial, anti-style message. If you want to be a riot grrrl, but you play piano ballads in C-major, that's okay. It's not about wearing mini skirts with graphic tees and having lots of scratchy feedback. Honestly, we don't need another decade of apolitical mushy retro-sauce. That is really, really over.

they paved paradise and put up a parking lot

In my October 6, 2008 meme, I took a list of the "100 Best Books" and bolded the ones I had read, underlined the ones I had read and loved, and italicized the ones I had planned to read. I went through the list today-- nearly a year later, but not quite-- and recognized the following changes that would have to be made to the list now:

-I wrote that I "hated Romeo and Juliet," which is absolutely no longer true. I love Romeo and Juliet have memorized large parts of it, as a result of doing sets, costumes, props and various other jobs for the play this past June. Shakespeare is hard to get into, but you really have to see it performed to get it. I've since read A Midsummer Night's Dream and this year, we're going to do Julius Caesar for the end of the year.

-I have since read (and loved) Pride and Prejudice.

-I wrote that I "hated The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time." Again, absolutely not true. When I first read the book, I didn't really "get it"-- but having reread it, I've discovered that it's definitely one of my favourite books. Again, I've memorized certain parts. I adore the character of Christopher (who detests the colour yellow) and I only wish it could be new for me again.

-I have since read parts of The Catcher In The Rye (and am well aware of the plot/themes, having studied it in English class), Emma, Animal Farm and Atonement. I'm terrible about not finishing books. I love Atonement and want to finish it.

current mood: creative

I re-joined Deviantart, because my old account was crap. I only have 3 pictures up at the new one, because I want this one to be reserved for non-crap. Come and check me out: http://tempera-mental.deviantart.com/.

It's going to be awesome. I have a lot of ideas.

You're a LiveJournal Fiend!

You're into LiveJournal, big time... just not as much as your friends.

Still, you've LJ'ed from work - and made posts about what you had for dinner. Sicko!

You may be safe from the clutches of LJ - or maybe you're just are an adept liar!
