i. Good afternoon, Internet! Here is "Don't Stop Believin'" being performed by Bruce Springsteen, Lady GaGa, Sir Elton John, Sting, Dame Shirley Bassey, and Blondie. To quote [ profile] baked_goldfish, who emailed it to me, "THAT'S IT, THE INTERNET IS OVER, JUST SHUT IT DOWN, PACK IT UP AND GO HOME." Maybe I'll keep hoping for a studio version, or at least a professionally-mastered copy of this, rather than a tinny bootleg, but if they ever release that I don't know what I'll do with myself. Or just a version that's only Gaga and Bruce and maybe Blondie and/or Dame shirley, because I am actually not a big fan of giant, many-person collaborations in general. Nonetheless, the mere fact that this exists is forcing me to reevaluate my entire cosmology.

ii. I am doing an overnight trip to NC tomorrow, driving down after Torah study (which I am leading, ahhhhh that will be scary because everyone is a million times more well-read than I am, but I think I've done enough research/reading to have a few things to get discussion started, and then I can just let them go and play referee when people start interrupting each other)! That will be fun; I will finally see Iron Man 2 and if there's time I will drag Dommi to The Losers. Then next weekend is my sister's graduation Saturday morning and a friend's wedding Saturday afternoon, then the weekend after THAT...I actually don't think I have anything going on, and it's a three-day weekend, so that's really nice! How is it halfway through May already, lordy-loo.

iii. I got this necklace yesterday! That is to say, I bought it a few days ago and it arrived yesterday. I have ~feelings~ that I will save for the conversion filter, but in more mundane news, I went out and bought a new chain for it from Target because the one it came with was just too heavy-looking. So if anyone wants a sterling silver snake chain, give a holler.

iv. WORK STUFF: I am perceived as a competent adult? What? )

v. OTHER WORK STUFF: chatter about the general office environment )

Lol Daily Fail, but one of the guests at Lady GaGa's London party had everyone going "LOL WHAT". NGL, I had no opinion on her until someone pointed me to her story about how she met him, cried all over him, and he was super-nice about it, at which point my fondness for her was basically sealed, because I have experience with losing it in front of members of the E Street Band and them being super-nice about it.

This will probably never happen, but I continue to dream that maybe they will collaborate on something. MAN CAN YOU IMAGINE WHAT A CREEPY POP EPIC THE TWO OF THEM COULD COME UP WITH. The lady who did "Paparazzi" and the guy who gave us "don't run back inside, darling, you know just what I'm here for", "hold still now darling, hold still for God's sake" and...well, the entirety of "I'm On Fire". Also his performances of "Fire", the which song is varying degrees of :\ when sung by a woman but downright terrifying when it's done by a dude because lol no means yes.

And then Kanye could remix it and/or they could all show up at a party with the Cobras and my life would be complete.

A selection of the music I listened to while writing this. HEY GUYS IT'S FINALLY FINISHED! ~RELIEEEEEEEEF~

Part 1 | Part 2

Part 1 is just a standard mix; Part 2 is all instrumental.

Part 1 track listing. )

Part 2 is all instrumental, from a band called Rockabye Baby. That's right -- all lullabye versions of classic rock songs. Basically it was the perfect background music for writing; low-key but still very evocative, recognizable but without lyrics to distract me. I've listed the songs with their original artists!

Part 2 track listing. )
