I finished two mixes tonight -

A season 2 Lydia [/Peter] fanmix. Listen here.

A mix for good girls with blood on their hands. Listen here.

I think these mixes are the result of the ginormous lady boner I've had for female vocals this year. Mmm, ladies.
HI. I have nothing to talk about but I felt like I was due a post.


Do you like...stuff?

You know, I still pull that out during lapses in conversation. Ah, Simpsons quotes. Always applicable in life.

What's been happening, how are THINGS? Are we happy, are we sad? Are we glad, are we mad? Are we SUPER DEPRESSED BECAUSE THIS MIGHT BE THE LAST TIME WE SEE BRADLEY AND COLIN LOOK AT EACH OTHER EVER AGAIN?


I'm not ready to say goodbye ;____;

Music I'm digging )

This post accomplished nothing.
1. What does a girl have to do around here to get people writing Bradley/Colin rps again?

Seriously, I'm asking, I will do anything.

2. Songs of the week:

Teeth - ILLLS
Lion Heart - North Highlands
Dear Leopold - Nive Nielsen and the Deer Children

3. New recipes 21-24 )
Ah, the old 'favourite albums of 2011' post.

Do they know those days are golden? )
So, [livejournal.com profile] carnivors and I were talking this afternoon about dark!Merlin and even though it's not normally something I seek out, I remember reading a really interesting fic ages ago that I wanted to rec to her, only I can't remember the title/author because I live in the dark ages and don't bookmark anything. Does anyone remember a fic in which dark!Merlin and Arthur are having sex and Merlin destroys the world at the end? And Uther may or may not get maimed/killed in the middle, but it's entirely possible I'm thinking of something else here?

I had a looksie in the non-con tag on mxa this arvo until I was unfairly yet understandably distracted by come-addict!Arthur fic, so if anyone could help me out, that would be super. You would get a gold star and everything.

Oh, okay, and Merlin this coming week? Aaaargh, excitement/reservation.

Today I am in love with this song: Can't Fish - Pete & the Pirates.

And Monte continues to be a treasure, I love his itty bitty face even if he doesn't let me sleep in of a morning.

Here he is trying to work out why yummy-looking berries no go in mouth.
ETA: That's some unfortunate USB cable placement there.
We'll Find Our Way
(in the end)

- an Arthur/Merlin reincarnation mix

Download under here )
Two mixes I made for [livejournal.com profile] lemniciate's mixtape exchange.

An upbeat mix and songs to commit crime to...sexily )
So, did I miss anything vital? Aside from the really important stuff my lovely friends kept me up to date with, of course, like that assassin fic on the kink meme (it's going to break my heart so hard, I just know it). And High School Merlin (finally!) posting. And Colin looking scrumptious in many different forms (all pics from fyeahcolinmorgan).

And, of course, Bradley's new Twitter. If you've been on my flist for a long time, you might remember me expressing the belief that a twitter run by Bradley James would possibly be the most fascinating containment of 140-character nuggets of wisdom the world has ever known.

I wasn't wrong.

Frivolous Plots Friday! )

Songs on repeat )

In other news, I realise I'm late to this party, but I'm so in love with the show Miranda (HI, TOM ELLIS, HI). Is there going to be a season three?

So, to commiserate the fact that I still don't have my computer back and have thus been unable to download all the new albums I want (Radiohead, Smith Westerns, the Decemberists, Hey Rosetta, Campfire OK), I've been making a lot of playlists on my iPod. It goes without saying that I had to make a Merlin/Arthur one, which got me thinking about the ultimate M/A songs; MY ultimate songs, the ones that shape the soundtrack for their life and love.

I embedded my top five )

But what I really want to know is, what are yours? Which songs match the story in your head? Which songs never fail to inspire you, or to remind you just who these characters are and what their journey is about?
  • Filed under things that would not make me giggle if I weren't a Merlin fan and I had an ounce of maturity: there's an English cricketer playing right now called Eoin Morgan. Eoin married Colin. Hee.

  • Reminds me of that magazine article where the journalist wrote "Bradley Morgan". Now that was a good day to be a fangirl.

  • Mood: I've been in a really weird space this week, I've kind of just wanted to curl up in bed and play Fruit Ninja on my iPod. This past weekend the house had been full of family visiting from Sydney, so I think I'm just withdrawing into some calm after a mad weekend full of loudness and constant doing.

  • Gripe of the week: I WANT MY COMPUTER BACK. I'm going through some sort of fanmix-making withdrawal. Does my computer nerd not realise I have a gay love story to tell through the medium of SONG? GOSH.

  • Song of the week: )

    Aaand that's all I've got to blather on about, I don't know, I feel really boring lately. I do feel a pervy poll about Bradley and Colin coming on soon though. Yay?

    Also, Happy Australia Day, fellow Aussies! Yay, our country! That right there is pretty much the extent of my celebrations though.

    - a Merlin/Arthur fanmix

    Download under here )
    IT IS DECEMBER ALREADY. HOW DID THIS HAPPEN? Aside from, you know, the earth rotating around the sun. Hey, did you know that scientists reckon there's more stars in the universe than there are grains of sand on all the beaches of Earth? Mad, right?

    In other news, the results of the honesty meme are in and word is, I'm fabulous.

    Who knew?

    Music under the cut )

    Just uploaded a few cover songs for [livejournal.com profile] lunatunes theme of the week, thought I'd share them here too.

    Originality is overrated )
    Merlin fandom has been a bit of a buzzkill this week, what with a lot of spazzing going on about the spoiler pics from Pierrefonds, so here's something fun from two lovely ladies on my flist:

    Kink Me, Merlin Fill Fest!
    Want to see your favorite kinky prompts filled at the [livejournal.com profile] kinkme_merlin? Then come on over to the Kink Me, Merlin Fill Exchange Fest! We want porn and we want it complete! See you there. ♥ ♥ ♥

    Go forth and porn, my pretties.

    What's that? You need inspiration? Well, okay. Because you asked nicely, today's inspiration comes in the form of Mr Bradley James, who would sprawl all over your heart if you gave him half a chance;

    Pic by [livejournal.com profile] yavannauk, here

    And just in case you're not convinced yet:

    Something bookish, something music-y )

    And finally, something spoilery. Brief True Blood season three spoilers ahead. )

    Pic via [livejournal.com profile] yorkshirewench & The One Show.

    They stand together, a united front against the world: one and the other. So much around them is fake and sterile - the studio, the vapid hosts, the make-up that cakes their complexions - yet their smiles are real and unforced as they fit themselves into familiar places; a heated hand splays between the shoulder blades of one and gentle fingers dance in the small of the other's back. One is restless and playful, lets his fingers trace along the other's spine, slipping down until they're lingering at the seam of his shirt and he won't do it, he won't do it, but he does, two digits pulling up the shirt ever so slightly, bunching the fabric under his thumb until he reaches a sliver of skin. The other doesn't give anything away, smiles inanely for the camera in front of them but his heart quickens and his partner must notice the slight intake of breath as a careful finger smoothes along the skin and dips beneath the waistband of his jeans.

    Mood music: Your Rocky Spine - Great Lake Swimmers

    I don't know how that happened. Actually, I do, the boys were born, they met and I became a porny heathen.

    HELLO NEW MERLIN FRIENDS. Welcome, welcome, I apologise for myself in advance.


    The election still remains undecided; some reports are leaning towards Gillard remaining PM, but if she can't schmooze the Independents, then we're all up shit creek with Tony Abbott.

    In more positive news, new Sufjan EP, wheee!

    Lookit my new icon! Oh, Rosario Dawson, you are the love of my life today <3

    True Blood season three has begun airing on tv here, finally. Ep one was so-so though. Without spoiling me, does it get better?

    I watched the classic film, Once Upon A Time In The West, for the very first time last night and wow, it was brilliant. I've always been a fan of older movies but I never particularly got the appeal of Westerns but this, oh this. Cut for brief, vaguely spoilery gushing )

    And that's pretty much it, what's going on with you guys? Not long until new Merlin now, less than month!
    I'm wired, too much caffeine, WHAT'S HAPPENING FRIENDS?

    Did you Arrested Development fans see Bateman on The Daily Show the other day? He reckons Mitch Hurwitz is halfway through writing the AD movie script. So...it's back on again? STOP TORMENTING ME AND JUST MAKE IT HAPPEN, WORLD.

    Artists not guessed on the lyric meme: the Left Banke, Port O'Brien, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Folk Implosion, Yeasayer, Starboard Silent Side, Liza Minnelli, New Order, Vetiver, and Midlake.

    More space videos to blow your mind under here )

    Lastly, new Summer mixtape click for tracklisting and download link )

    *spazzes out*

    I am so in love with this week. And you guys. I love you guys!
