I'm DMing an RPG game tonight and I couldn't find lyrics for "Paradise" online, so that's blank for now. But seriously. Listen to it. It's perfect. (Edit: Fix'd.)

I seriously need to make a B-sides or something for the I've Been Everywhere fanmix. I keep finding more songs that definitely should have been on it. Like The City of New Orleans by Steve Goodman:

Also, I just recently started listening to Bob Dylan. OMG you guys, I didn't know what I missing! D: There totally should have been some Bob Dylan on that album somewhere. A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall, maybe, though that one makes me think about Castiel wandering around looking for his dad more than Sam and Dean and the Impala, which was the concept.

And I know--I know--there are lots of perfect songs about traveling around America that I don't even know about. Yet.

It's Big Bang season! So many fandoms are having them, and so many of my flisties are going for it, which is very awesome. I decide to dust this off as a belated Valentine's Day gift for you guys. ♥

In 2006, I graduated from college with a degree in Professional Writing. In the same year, I made this "mix CD" for some of the writer friends I had met in that college, who I loved dearly (and still do). It's amazing to think that even that recently, downloading large files over the internet was mostly impractical, at least as far as I knew. Did broadband even exist then? But yeah. I burned these to CDs, and made my own artwork, and printed out "liner sheets" with the lyrics.


Track List:
My Baby Loves a Bunch of Authors by Moxy Fruvous
The Engine Driver by The Decemberists
I'll Be a Writer by Soltero
Paperback Writer by The Beatles
Seize the Day by Carolyn Arends
Open Book by CAKE
Novel-Writing (Live from Wessex) by Monty Python
Song for Myla Goldberg by The Decemberists
Shadow Stabbing by CAKE
Breathe (2 AM) by Anna Nalick
There She Goes, My Beautiful World by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
See the Flames Begin to Crawl by Five Iron Frenzy
That's How the Story Ends by Five Iron Frenzy
Escape (The Pina Colada Song) by Rupert Holmes

Included in the liner sheets was this little story. I've added a few parenthetical phrases and a PS to make it more applicable for my current readership.

A Musical, Writerly Journey

This album is a gift to some of my very favorite writers ever. However, note that the songs on this album are very eclectic. Therefore, you may not like one or two or ten. That's okay. While you're deciding whether you like them, enjoy the story they tell about the writer's journey.

First of all, I figure that pretty much every writer starts out by liking books. Having a spouse who shares that inclination would just compound the problem, of course. "My Baby Loves a Bunch of Authors," you may have noted to yourself. But that was okay, because you did too.

So there you were just living your life, as a cafe worker or librarian or student or perhaps even an Engine Driver, when you had an epiphany. "I'll Be a Writer," you declared one day. "It can't be that hard."

But deciding to be a writer was not enough. Then you had to decide what kind of writer you would be, a poet or a columnist or a critic or one of those people who write illogical letters to the editor (or comments on the internet). "I want to be a Paperback Writer," you declared further.

That was it, then. It was time to Seize the Day. Your life would be an Open Book, prepared for the perusal of strangers. You were ready to share all of your insights and wisdom, humor and love. It would be eloquent, moving, and entertaining, an instant best-seller.

And you began to write. It might have been more exciting with a commentator on some sports-like show, perhaps called Novel-Writing (Live from Wessex) or something like that. But no matter. You pressed on. Already you were thinking about an interesting, attention-grabbing title for you book. Song for Myla Goldberg, maybe. Or perhaps something a bit more ambiguous and poetic, like Shadow Stabbing. You had lists of ideas, but hadn't hit on the perfect title yet. It would come, you were sure. Well, pretty sure.

And now you were down in the real nitty-gritty of your novel. It was beginning to come a bit harder. You realized that you were sharing some rather personal things, and didn't know if you could write anymore. Either that or you realized that you were writing utter crud, and weren't sure what do about it. You kept trying, though, until one day you found yourself awake at 2 AM in the morning, clutching a pencil in one fist (or pounding on your keyboard with that fist), the other pressed to your burning temple as you blinked your gritty bloodshot eyes and struggled to Breathe.

It was that most dreaded of maladies: writer's block. It hit you hard. You could not get around it. "There She Goes, My Beautiful World!" you cried in despair. (Writer's block stinks a lot. It also inspires melodramatic cries of anguish.)

For days upon days, you fought your writer's block. You wrote pages of drivel, crumpled them, then smoothed them out to see if you had been wrong, then decided that they were definitely drivel and crumpled them again. At last you had piles of them, enough for a bonfire. So you set one, just to See the Flames Begin to Crawl. It was very satisfying, in a morbid way. So you decided that That's How the Story Ends. Rather easy decision, it was, in the end.

And now you just really, really needed to Escape. So you wrote your last creative effort, a personal ad sent to the newspaper, and you found someone who liked pina coladas as much as you did. Good for you! That's really the best final destination for your journey that you could have reached.

After all, this writing stuff, with its sweat and blood and many, many tears, is for chumps of the first degree.

The End

PS: Or you could always come to the dark side and write fanfic. IT'S SO MUCH FUN YOU HAVE NO IDEA.

maychorian: (OMG EXCITING)
After I wrote my big bang and made a soundtrack and posted it and everything...I realized that even though the story was obsessed with candy (to the point that one of my favorite scenes was the one where Sam and Dean sit companionably on a hill and eat Dum-Dums), the soundtrack actually didn't have a SINGLE SONG about candy. This was a clearly a travesty, but at that point it was too late to fix it.

So here. Have a fanmix about candy, just for you. ♥ Lame-ass cover-art is also mine, so free to whomever.

Soundtrack & Picspam

The soundtrack is spoilery for the story, so I recommend reading that first, or downloading the music without looking at it. ;)

The picspam is of real-life locations from "The Lights of Home." Hover over the images for text, and click for bigger. These were all taken yesterday, June 29, 2009, just before noon. What a gorgeous day.

Also, I just want to note that I did NOT put that bike on top of the grassy hill. It just happened to be there when I wanted to take a pic, and it was so perfect I squeed in real life.

Love Song for the Apocalypse
Bring It On...

Love Song for the Apocalypse

Who's excited about Season 5? I AM.

The original concept for this mix was "cheerful songs about Hell and The End of the World." That's pretty much what this is, though I couldn't resist ending on a slightly melancholy note. (Gotta have my Jars. I haven't made a mix without them yet.) Notice also that this is not the first time the Winchesters have been 'round this horn. I would argue that the end of Season 3 was actually worse and felt more like the end of the world for both of them. And so half of these songs are for that period, and half of them are for now.

BRING IT ON, BITCH. (Yes, I just called Lucifer a bitch.)

Okay, so here's just a taste of what my Big Bang fic will be like. Did I mention that parts of it are Weechester? Yeah, that's all the spoiler this is. (And OMG, how could I resist a band called The Hoosiers for a fic set in Indiana????)

ETA: Drat. You have to sign into imeem to actually listen to more than 30-second clips of these. Oh well. Three weeks! \o/
maychorian: (should've known better)
Well, I have done something new. ::is nervous:: Yes, I has made a fanmix. I don't know. They just...made sense together. I am tempted to subtitle it "The Softer, Acoustic Side of Temptation." More simply, it roughly parallels Castiel's journey throughout Season 4. I hope you like it.
