Musicals, Musicals, Musicals

Certain people who I shall not name have been bombarding me with a staccato of Elisabeth clips lately, and I'm currently in the process of subtitling another one of my all-time favourite German musicals, so it's no surprise that the world of musicals has been on my mind in general.

So in my ongoing quest to reclaim meme-ing from tumblr, have a 30 Days of Musicals meme:

In love with musical - Songs, performers, productions, costumes, and roughly 70,000 YouTube clips )

Also, musicspam!

Dear Revolverheld,

Did you get weekly DeRo scripts for "In Farbe" or something? Because hellooooo, what's with the stabby verbatim?

Hope you and Show are having fun sharing pints and cackling over the beautiful damage you're doing.

Well, ow.

The lovely evil [info]alsha reminded me of this.

Tom McRae/Lovely Evil Show=OTP

Someone needs to confiscate all my Tom McRae albums. I'm overdosing on imaginary woobie musical montages.

*hugs a pillow*

But I’ll keep playing Atlas baby
Though my shoulders ache
And I’ll spin this old world around
Trying to see your face

But still I can’t find you
And I can’t find me
And I don’t know where
I’m supposed to be

*musicspams* Silbermond, Irgendwas bleibt

Spoilery maybe, maybe not very? Have a cut anyway, to be on the safe side )

Gratuitous music pimp

Let me present to you my new music crush, Eisblume (why yes, I do get all my music from a German soap):

Just... gaaaaah. Shivers.

And while I'm pimping shamelessly, they work AWESOMELY for Katja's skating (at 7:05),not to mention Lil having beaten the WMG audio block, wheeeeee:

[yes yes, I know all my IJ crowd is likely intimately familiar with this clip by now, but I'm cross-posting and luring in LJ innocents, lol]

(A big fat FUCK YOU to UMG's crappy copyright policy, though. I bet lots of people would love to buy these guys' stuff, IF THEY COULD ONLY HEAR IT FIRST.)

Christina Stürmer, ILU

Okay, I have a music crush. This happens rarely enough that it merits a post.

Initially, Christina Stürmer was just the chick who's doing the theme song for this cracky show I may be a little obsessed with. Then I randomly looked for more of her music, and it turns out I am actually madly in love with her. She even beats my other girlcrush of the year, Merlin's Katie McGrath, by a hair's breadth, by the simple virtue of being able to sing. I adore her slightly smoky voice and the way she seems to overdo it just a tiny bit too much at concerts, like she feels she has to give this somewhat larger than life impression of herself, when she's actually pretty damn perfect the way she is, so she ends up looking like a bit of a dork. I LOVE DORKS.

I am also in love with her piercings and her casual khaki wear and her slightly slouchy shoulders and her self-mockery when she does her Austrian accent. OMG Christina. Never change, okay?

Heeeh. Cheesy/bouncy music is aggressively shippy

Ok, my music taste is generally best described as "cheerfully terrible". I stand by this ;)

That said, I find the lyrics in Cascada's Bad Boy hilariously DeRo-accurate, if you ignore that one line that mentions "girl". Seriously, I'm LOLing here. Someone make a vid!

Barring that, with my nonsensical picspam. You will all COWER.

Oh god, it's official, I have lost my mind. Not that I was ever that much in possession of it anyway, but whatevs.

Did I mention this? I don't think I have:

(God, I just want to smack his face off his face SO HARD!)

Voting is open until Friday, and I will spam you with cracky banners until then and wheedle at you to go vote. It doesn't matter if you don't even read this stuff. Just go vote anyway! *g* (and you don't have to vote for me, either. Pick whoever's name is crackiest or what have you.)

Where was I? Right, mind-losing! Totally gone off the deep end. with spam of all kinds )

Concerts, movies, fannish exploits & the rest

This weekend, I did stuff, for a change!

Auckland-bound )

It was the first time either of us had actually spent any time in Auckland (previously we'd just whizzed through), and it was nice to taste a bit of big city life again. We explored a bit of the downtown and gorged on massive amounts of shopping, which was bloody good fun. Then had lunch in a lovely park, and in the early afternoon went to check in and get ready for the concert.

Counting Crows and The Who )

After the concert, Alsha and I made it back into town after some bus-related issues (the free public transport thing back wasn't nearly as well organised as getting there, so there was lots of milling about in giant crowds and stupid bus drivers giving wrong instructions) and pretty much just fell into bed, we were that tired.

On Sunday, we slept in, had a huge breakfast and went to the zoo in the afternoon. Moar )

Our flight back was on Monday afternoon, so we had some time to kill, though not loads of money, so we went and saw a movie. Our options were either Slumdog Millionaire or The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. We were slightly more interested in the subject matter of the latter and also knew that Asa Butterfield, the little boy who played Mordred in Merlin, was in it, so we ended up going with that.

The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas (dear British/American movie industries, why are you so hell-bent on appropriating the Nazi stuff? You're lovely, but you fail at being German! )

After the movie, we went to collect our bags and went to catch the plane home. Arrived last night to needy cats and piles of work that I'll somehow have to vanquish this week. DO NOT WANT. Let's have some fandom pimping instead!

[info]graspthethorn is doing the 2009 SEXY awards over on [info]seifen_slash! Go forth and nominate, I command you! AWZ stuff especially... I doubt Verbotene Liebe needs any help, hehehe. SUPPORT OUR TINY FANDOM! Go and nominate fics or art you liked! It won't take a minute :D


I hope to surface a few times this week to do EKP stuff (Christmas and New Year's episodes coming up soon!) and maybe watch the show, though recaps will probably have to be shorter this week.

In other telly-related news, I've recently started watching Torchwood season 2, and holy wow, it is good! I gotta admit, I wasn't too floored by season 1 - I liked it but it seemed a bit random and didn't really capture me enough to make me want to have more! now!, but I'm definitely getting that vibe with season 2 so far. Awesome plots! Great side characters! JAMES MARSTERS! Massive amounts of boykissing! Ianto ruling with the witty one-liners! It is beautiful. And further saturating my happy little slasher heart. Really, the amount of slash I HAVEN'T had to make up this year is mind-boggling. The canon boylove, it overwhelms me!

Aaaaand I also really enjoyed the latest episode of Dollhouse! I hope they keep going like that, because that was noticeably better than the previous ones. I approve!

Now if only I could bend the space-time continuum enough to have time for all my fannish exploits, writing (In This Home On Ice will have to be put on, well, ice... for the rest of the week at least), work, eating, trimming my hedge & mowing my lawn (hahahahaha) AND the occasional sleep! But it will all work out somehow as usual, I'm sure. I DON'T KNOW HOW. IT IS A MYSTERY.

*poodles off to see what atrociousness AWZ has been up to in the latest eps*
