So, I was going to actually do the Soundtrack of the Year for this year, but it probably ought to be Soundtrack of the Decade, and will be something I do if I have time, which we'll see about.

Having fun in the Greater ATL. Adoration all around!
caudelac: (12 sided die-- geekness)
So, [ profile] theferrett asked a rather worthy question, for those of you (and I know there are some few about on my f*list!) who play RPGS, of the tabletop or live variety:

What's your [RP] archetype? Do you know what need it satisfies?

Meaning, specifically, a unifying type or trope that all of your RP characters share. Now I generally prefer the GM or NPC roles, but upon reflection, I found that the main of my characters (there could certainly be exceptions), seem to be those who either are easily underestimated, but ought not to be, or are there to distract your attention so you'll underestimate their buddy, who will then make you sorry.

As for why... an excellent question. I think it betrays a belief in the idea that Still Waters Will Fuck You Up.

So... how 'bout you guys?

ETA: [ profile] ethylamine had an extremely interesting addendum-- what is the weakness you CAN NOT hang on your characters? Are there any weaknesses that the idea of playing either makes you uncomfortable, or just seems unpleasant to the point of not being interesting?

Personally, I think I am more uncomfortable with the whole Deeply Scarred By Past Trauma thing than with any other... PTSD sucks, and it isn't really a fun thing to put on a character that one intends to play hardcore. For writing purposes, it's a little more okay, but it still deeply bugs me, and I am usually more about what happens in the story than dwelling on the character's old wounds.
caudelac: (Amazing!)
So, the way it works is that you comment and I ask 1-3 questions. Then you post your answers on your journal, and offer the same. These are from [ profile] xhollydayx.

Wow... the amount of fucked up in people's medical records floors me, every time.

Also, listening to the BBC at 12:30 driving home is a great pleasure, and Game Theory will pwn us all.

That said, have a meme from [ profile] inshaltos:

1. Pick 15 of your favourite movies.
2. Go to IMDB and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
5. NO GOOGLING/using IMDB search functions. Totally cheating, you dirty cheaters!

1. "Security, tranquility, a well deserved rest. All the aims I have pursued will soon be realised. Life... is a state of mind."

2. "Internal combustion: the ultimate accessory."

3. "I picked you not because I think you're so smart, but because I thought you're a shade less dumb than the rest of the outfit. Guess I was wrong. You're not smarter. You're just a little taller."

"I love you too."

4. And one more thing. No matter how much I love you, I loved him more.

5. "Ooooooh, I'm so pretty! I'm gonna hit you so hard, your children will be born bruised!"-- Tank Girl, [ profile] elissa_carey

6. "Eating people alive? Where's that get fun?" -- Serenity, [ profile] ironed_orchid

8. "Just you wait a little while, the nasty man in black will come, With his cleaver's blade so true. He'll make mincemeat out of YOU!"

9. "Now, you understand you're going to the Supreme Court. Do you know why?"

"It is the place where they finally kill us."
-- Amistad, [ profile] goldfishesdream

10. "Pussy Galore. What a total fuckin' misnomer. I wouldnae touch her with yours."-- Trainspotting, [ profile] xxgeek

11. "Man, you got a benz, I got a busket: gimmie a dollar." -- Suicide Kings, [ profile] simoniff

12. "white boy shining shoes... that is a novelty, I must see that. I just want you to keep in mind that every dog has his day and good dogs have two... lo and behold! If the creator had made anything better he'd have kept it for himself!"

13. "I would have been much nicer. I would just cut your face." -- Kill Bill vol. II, [ profile] lawgrrl_23

14. "You look at her too much. You should not look at her so much. Something terrible might happen!" -- Salome's Last Dance, [ profile] shellefly

15. "I would rather have an intelligent enemy, than a stupid friend."

from everybody:

Please post something you think I should do or try to do in 2008. Big or small, silly or earth-changing.

I make no promises. But yeah and yay.
caudelac: (gummy why not?)
Anything I can think of to post about life, the universe and all today was either bitchy, too depressing or uncommonly dull, so instead I'll post a meme that i've seen going about lately.

Comment, and I'll post a photo of any part of my life you're curious about... anything from the Rabbitic Domain you might like to see, or whatnot.

Except for uncovered bits of my nubile flesh, that is. For those of you with perv-tastic tendencies.

I gave up at about skip 220, signed up for [ profile] yuletide, and looked for jobs. I had forgotten how much the internet doubles as an exercise in futility.

Vista has an annoying habit of disappearing the cursor anytime it gets near text. O' Things One Hopes Will Be Resolved in Patches.

in the meantime, let's have some memetime. Sometimes I feel like we don't know each other anymore.

1. Do you have a tattoo?
2. How old are you?
3. Are you single or taken?
4. Fish?
5. Do you dream in colour?
6. Ever seen a corpse?
7. How about them hipsters?
8. How did we meet?
9. What's your philosophy on life and death?
10. If you could do anything with me, and have no one know, what would it be?
11. Do you trust the police?
12. Do you like musicals?
13. What is your fondest memory of me?
14. If you could change anything about yourself what would it be?
15. Would you cheat?
16. What are you wearing?
17. Have you ever peed in a pool?
18. Would you hide evidence for me if I asked you to?
19. If I only had one day to live, what would we do together?
20. Which do you prefer - short or long hair?
21. What's your favorite day of the week?
22. What's your favorite color?
23. If you could bring back anyone that has passed, who would it be?
24. Tell me one interesting/odd fact about you?
25. What was your first impression of me?
26. Have you ever done drugs?
27. Will you post this so I can fill it out for you?

(this comes to us via [ profile] ethylamine, in case you were wondering)

Finally, in part because Psychonauts is in fact one of the best video games ever made, and Yahtzee makes me die of peeing (that means he is funny, O' best beloved), there is no win like the best win which is this win right here.

Now to go back to praying for Duke to take pity on me, and waiting for October 30th to get here and In the Cities of Coin and Spice to come out.

So long since meme. I meme meme.

Comment and I'll give you a letter. You have to list 10 things you love that begin with that letter. After, post this in your journal, and give out some letters of your own.

This meme is brought to you by the letter p, and the principality of [ profile] marshalmeg. So so.

10) Princes & Princesses-- I grew up on fairy tales. So there.
9) Palaces -- see above. Also, palaces are a lot like towers. Not to be confused with palisades, which are rows of sharp pointy sticks used to keep out intruders, and are also cool. And are words I like to say.
8) Philosophers -- Of various stripes. Mostly, I like to paint them various stripes. I like Paint too. Paint is nifty. And comes in many colors. Much like philosophy. Ooh, that's deep.
7) Pluto-- Hades in Hose is so his own planet, bee-yutch.
6) Pele-- I know you've seen fire, but you've never seen fire until...
5) Pleiades-- The Seven Sisters of myth, legend, and the starry skies. Not to be confused with Morpho peleides, which is the Blue Morpho Butterfly, and also something I like immensely, and is a great word too-- it has Pele, and it had the ides in it. On second thought, confuse them all you want, that'd be kinda awesome.
4) Poncey Ponces-- because you know, I am one.
3) Pirates-- Arr.
2) Phineas! -- aside from being a character of which I am fond, it's just plain an awesome name.
1) pWn4g3. Bet you thought I forgot.

p.s. -- I was going to put Parliament, but I don't like parliament, unless you mean parliament-- the blowing up of, a la Guy Fawkes and the happye dreams of Mr. Sidney Godolphin.

Also, Catasterism is a great word! Shame it does not begin with P.
caudelac: (you must see for yourself)
I'm amazed. A few days ago, I was in a level of hell so deep I wondered if I would ever see light again. I feel much better as of yesterday? The day before? I don't know. But humpty dumpty puts herself back together again with much apolmb. A whole box full of paper, enough paper to have given the Cardinal Richelieu's cats happyfits for days, organised into filecabinet. Fafsa filed, rentcheck sent out, unemployment paperwork conquered, and all of that other happy crappy squished flat.

Also, I have the Final Fantasy I remake for PSP. It's so good. So very. I purr all over my dark mage sprites.

By the by, in Comic Book world, I'm looking verily forward to the proper release of Black Summer, of which I got the #0... it basically seems like Warren Ellis & Juan Jose Ryp writing The Watchmen. Only with our modern politics. As in yep, I do think that i prezzy Bush's bloodied corpse lying at the feet of John Horus on the cover of #0.


Finally, for your amusement:

Since I'm an INFP... )

I must dress, and thwart the Mauscat in yet another attempt to eat Oscar!Bird and Bosie!Bird.

memestylez, this was my 42nd entry.

And I'd be more amused by the Hitchiker's Guide reference if I weren't somehow suspicious that my whole existence weren't a Hitchiker's Guide reference.

Found the BBC version for $17 a couple weeks ago, and was watching it last night, so that also could have something to do with it.

Though I'd prefer a Coyote, really, I don't mind Jackaltypes. Apparently, it changes based on other people's input. Coolish.

Back to breaking down boxes!

You scored as Richelieu. You are Cardinal Richelieu, prelate of France. Manipulation and puppetmastering are your stock-in-trade, and you always have two or three schemes going at once. You don't have a need for romance, because you figure lovers out too quickly and then they bore you. You are a treacherous friend and a downright dangerous enemy.

If I were in a rock band, I would certainly perform bad covers. The top ten bad covers I would perform would be the following:

10. Slipstream, Jethro Tull (short, I know, but); paired with ..., destroyed by kittens
9. Wig in a Box, Hedwig and the Angry Inch
8. Cupid, Sam Cooke. (Or maybe Bring it on Home to me. I haven't decided)
7. Brandy, Glass Key
6. The Boxer, Simon and Garfunkel
5. The WASP (Texas Radio and The Big Beat) -- The Doors
4. Rooftops, Orisha (if one can get a copy! Or else Shiela and Angie)
3. Heroin, the velvet underground (seriously, can you imagine this live? ROCK)
2. There is a Mountain, Donovan
1. The Show, The Brodys (You don't know who the Brodys are? For shame.

Mostly picked for how fun they'd be to perform on stage versus any vocal ability on my part. Except for Brandy. I can croon that hardcore.
caudelac: (hope.)
Plug your answers into Google Image and post pics. The rule is actually to pick the first photo, but I just picked the first reasonably sized photo that wasn't pornographic (and didn't wholly suck) instead.

On to the big frigging piccys )

drawing personality

The results of your analysis say:

You tend to pursue many different activities simultaneously. When misfortune does happen, it doesn't actually dishearten you all that much.
You are a thoughtful and cautious person. You like to think about your method, seeking to pursue your goal in the most effective way.
You are creative, mentally active and industrious.
You have a sunny, cheerful disposition.

What does your drawing say about YOU?


Yesterday... well, if there are sometimes mixed blessings, yesterday was the blessings piled in a blinder and mashed on frappé. A million running around, a million things Failing, and a million... pretty good. All the bad wound up obscured by the fact that my dad's EKG results weren't so good (he's been having chronic chest pains for almost a year and FINALLY got it checked out), and was on his way to the hospital for more heart tests, right about when I got offa wukr. So yeah, Worry.

The good was crowned by a girl at 305 South who wants to possibly open a more random and awesome esoteric shop (not the fluffy, deepak-chopra-crystals-and-goddessy-light-goodness crap), at which she'd like me to do regular tarot readings. And even if she doesn't, Michelle wants me to have a sort of stand-thing, where I could do readings on a semi-regular basis... like on the evenings, after this here wukr. I've longed to do that for a long time, so that would be rulership.

Especially since I could use the extra cash. The haus stuff is basically going to put the curb on any and all spending to the extent of no stopping to pick up a bottle of cranberry juice and a candy bar anymore, nor random beers, nor... well, anything save strictly budgeted grocery shopping trips. But one makes ones bed, et al. A little discipline, and I could be out of this desert in as little as 6 months. Assuming one can get rid of the Pit of Sickness called my house. Yeah.

Given all that, it is very pleasant that [ profile] marshalmeg came up the other night with a rather splendid idea for a Mafia-stylez RP called Cement Shoes, which is an excellence as although I have a million stuffs going on, I have missed rping a lot and am much looking forward to this one. I am playing Tom Hagen on the more moderne board, and also some as yet unidentified Private Eye in the Black & White era. And probably one of the main villains. Anyway, for those looking for some fun times with tommy-guns or political machinations, drop on by, apply apply! ([ profile] stauffenberg, I am looking at you in particular. I miss rping with you.)

The fun starts here.

Anyone wanna play, say, Sam Spade or a classy dame with great gams who wants to walk into somebody's office leg-first? Cozya.

You know you wanna.

Below you'll find your test result. After, continue on to your
homescreen to discover what we're about.

Si... Silicon

You scored 37 Mass, 32 Electronegativity, 34 Metal, and 10 Radioactivity!

Interesting. Take a bunch of really common person-elements and throw them together to get something truely exceptional... that's you. You are probably someone that gave up on trying to understand society at large a long time ago. You don't fear it, but you don't try to be one with it either. You are more or less unperturbed by things... if a problem comes up you might deal with it, or you might avoid it... whatever. You don't take kindly to people pushing you around, and you don't really push anyone else around. You're probably the only one that can tame oxygen simply because you don't understand it's raging neediness, but that doesn't mean that you'll really enjoy having a tame oxygen hanging around all that much either. You can probably get along with people like yourself really well, but you aren't your own soulmate... if only they could make entire colonies of people like you you'd be stoked. Just like you don't understand society, society doesn't understand you... and yes that is my excuse for not knowing how to describe you better.
