So, I'm here today to jabber to you all about this awesome woman named London Anderson.

This is London and her song "Because Because". This is my favorite song off her album, Diving Heart First. This isn't the actual album version, but this was recorded live when they did the video for it. Awesome, no?

She hails from Chicago, the Windy City, also known as the city bands like Fall Out Boy and The Academy Is... hail from. She's absolutely gorgeous, and I love her music.

This is a live performance of the song "Promises To The East Coast", which is also a phenomenal song.

Basically, this girl is about fifty thousand kinds of awesome and you should all listen to her. This is her website. Go forth and buy the album. Because you'll love it.
I'm bored. And procrastinating. (And the entry is a quote from [ profile] thenyxie's fic, Stranger Than Fiction.)

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line (unless the first line reveals the song title) from the first 25 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing. (House rule: Skip instrumentals.)
Step 3: Strike through the songs when someone guesses both artist and song title correctly.
Step 4: Looking them up on Google is cheating!

So, I saw Adam's new video. And made incoherent noises at the screen for several minutes. Because OMFG HAI ADAM. Marry me? :D

...why is it always the gay guys I end up liking? With, like, two exceptions... But one of them's a jack-ass (at least, in my opinion), and the other... Well, I'll steal from Meg Cabot... HWSNBNITB <--- "He who shall not be named in this blog"

Anyway... Also, I want you all to read a lovely rant by nijuuni over at dA about Adam's AMA performance which goes down as the gayest performance ever, INCLUDING Panic's Nothing Rhymes With Circus tour and High School Musical's "I Don't Dance" scene.

I have only seven words on the performance: Glambert, I love you. Don't ever change.

To everyone who bitched about the show: You can shut it. *glomps Adam*

Oh, my grandpa saw Adam's music video and thought it was softcore porn. I died laughing.

So I have this curious addiction to "Poker Face" right now... You know, the Lady Gaga song? I'd say it's my guilty pleasure, but it's not...

So... Guilty pleasure song?

Mine is "Don't Cha" by the Pussycat Dolls. *headdesk*
I've decided that simply because I like music and finding new bands as much as other people, I'm shoving local bands from Pennsylvania at you lot. :D :P

Band one: The London

Their MySpace

It only costs $4 to get the CD on iTunes, and trust me, it's worth it. (Also, Dusty, the lead singer? Yeah, cuter than Alex D.)

Song of choice? "Box"

Singer two: Cathasaigh

Her MySpace

Oh, my god. You will LOVE Saigh's music. She's got a show on Friday that I'm going to and she is amazing. If there is a singer to see, it's her. :)

Song of choice? "Call Me Hitchhicker"

I'll stop spamming your f-lists now. :P

(Also, somebody shoot me. I'm buying my books from now on. Screw you library. I have to pay $75 in fines.)

Put you're iPod or whatever on random. Post the 1st line of the of the first 30 songs, however emabarrassing. Let people guess the song and artist of each line.

Searching on google or whatever is cheating.
I'll put the line in bold once the song has been guessed correctly.

1. The world is cruel, the world is wicked...
2. I realize that this is where my heart is, now is the time to finish what I've started (not technically the first line, but first without the title...)
3. I'll travel lady a lotta miles just to find love, I'll do any and everything for your love
4. Turn it up, turn up the song, Here's how it's done
5. I have to wonder if this wave's too big to ride
6. Somehow everything's gonna fall right into to place
7. I hope you never lose your sense of wonder, you get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger
8. Here's the thing, we started out friends, it was cool, but it was all pretend
9. People say love comes and goes, but they don't understand
10. Something's happen when (yeah) when you don't expect.
11. I got your runaway smile in my piggy bank baby, gonna cash it right in for a new Mercedes, you were worth a hundred thousand miles, but you couldn't stay a while
12. Is it still me that makes you sweat...
13. Allow me to exaggerate a memory or two...
14. They gonna clean up your looks with all the lies in the books to make a citizen out of you...
15. The word is out, this town can hardly breathe
16. Prison gates won't open up for me, on the hands and knees I'm crawling on, I reach for you
17. There is unrest in the forest, there is trouble with the trees, for the maple want more sunlight and the oaks ignore their pleas
18. A penny for your thoughts but a dollar for your insights
19. I wear a disguise, I'm just your average Jane, the super doesn't stand for model, but that doesn't mean I'm plain
20. Look at all that which surrounds me, I'm supposed to call this home? The dark has become so overwhelming, so don't I just go?
21. You never listen to me, I know I'm better off alone
22. It's too late baby, this'll turn it around, I got my hands in my pocket and my head in the clouds
23. Listen close as the rain falls down to the ground, It's true, we are we are destined to fail
24. This won't hurt more than a pinch so just pour a drink let's talk it over
25. It's hard to believe that I couldn't see, you were always there beside me
26. Go ahead as you waste your days with thinking, when you fall, everyone stands
27. You know that you are the center of my attention and you leave me no choice
28. A hundred days have made me older, since the last time that I saw your pretty face
29. You fled from medication cause it only causes pain
30. Last year's wishes are this years apologies, every last time we come home...

Bring it, people! :D

*snort* went to type the title/artist of what I'm listening to in the Music: bar and ran out of space. XD
