My First ILX “First Mention”!!!!

So, uh, is “albums by bands” a thing now? I had no idea.

Help! We appear to be trapped in a moebius loop involving Fugazi! The concept of the Moebius is the basis of a song by Orbital. The Orbital is a big road that goes all the way around the outside of London. London is not only home to many fine bands, but it is also namechecked in songs and albums by bands from The Clash to Blur. Blur’s guitarist, Graham Coxon, has recorded several solo albums which pay great homage to the hardcore punk aesthetic and guitar work of… ARGH!!! FUGAZI!!!

That said, the thread that’s from, Only Connect 3: The Fugazi Loop is pretty hilarious. I really miss Old ILX sometimes.

Daniel speaking italian! (or trying to)

This is the cutest thing I have ever seen in my life.

Like, all a dude really has to do to give me absolute super-boner is be able to rattle off like 3 or 4 different languages. (No matter how badly.)

So I have a job interview tomorrow…

…and this one came out of nowhere.

But remember how I was agonising over whether to include my “I have a gap in my CV, I’ve been doing this stuff” in my CV, talking about illustration, music, writing etc? Well, these people actually rang me because of that paragraph, and said they are recruiting for my skillset (the computery stuff) but in a company that very much works within the ~creative industries~ (I can’t say who it is, but they’re cool, and ~relevant to my interests~) and they really, really wanted someone who both had my technical skills, and an interest/understanding of the ~entertainment business~ and the right attitude / personality to do the computer stuff in a creative environment.

So I’m kinda o_0 because it’s weird to be about to interviewing for a job where “wrote a 200,000 word novel about my experiences in the music industry” is a USP as far as they’re concerned, rather than a liability. But also quite exciting. Because I don’t want to be all “this is the one I’ve been waiting for” because it can all fall to pieces tomorrow if the interviewer is a jerk. But at the same time, I love the idea of working for a place that is not just ~relevant to my interests~ but they also looked at the more marmitey aspects of my CV and said “Yes! This is precisely what we want!”

So, uh, please cross fingers and hold thumbs for me. This seems like it could be really good.

So anyway, all I wanted to do was be in bands. That’s all I wanted to do. I was so bummed out because rock bands do not want girls in their band at all. There were just no girls in the band in Dayton, Ohio. Even Pollard from Guided By Voices would say ‘no bleeders.’ And he’s acting like he’s joking but everyone knows he’s not joking. ‘No bleeders in the band.’ So I always just wanted to be in bands and no one around here would play.

The Ball Pyramid is the world's tallest sea stack. It is the remains of a shield volcano formed about 7 million years ago. It is 562 meters high and is located southeast of Lord Howe Island in the Pacific Ocean.

Can we talk about this video, and the effect that it had on teenage me (OK, ignore how scary Arthur Baker looks in it) and I’m not just talking about Barney Sumner in those tight white shorts, I’m talking about the realisation that NYC was not just this hot, smelly place my parents made us visit, but it was actually a mysterious place full of cool people dancing in incredible ways? Yeah.

PURE FILTH

Do not read if you hate pure “Plot? What Plot?” filth, or frolicking lesbo-sex at Swedish Festivals.

Yes, I slashed mine own characters. Daniel Asheton of Metropolis, Merry Wythenshawe of Deltawave and Kate Gordon of The Charms get very stoned, and then very frisky, in a hot tub. If you like that sort of thing, enjoy. If you are DEEPLY OFFENDED by smut or pr0n or lesbian slash or threesomes or drug use, for the love of god, do us both a favour and avert your eyes. Now.

Daniel Was A Diver, And He Was Always Down.

OK, RedPantsAddict, I have filthy, filthy femmeslash for you.

(Now I just have to get the guts to post it up, without editing and re-editing it 40,000 times like a freaking control freak, because, christ, it’s just supposed to be PWP.)
