So I kind of promised A Dog's Breakfast?

Starring David Hewlett, all round fab dude.  You can download the parts here and here and here.

(ETA: rejoin with HJ Split)

Also, I got this meme from [profile] psychodragon82


1. Reply to this post and I'll assign you a letter (if you want one.)
2. List (and upload, if you feel like it) 5 songs that start with that letter.
3. Post them to your journal with these instructions

She assigned me 'S' because of silly Suarez. I have decided to try and represent all the facets of my musical taste in 5 songs that begin with S! I'm nutty, and bored.

Streetcar- Funeral For A Friend

Oh god, I love this band. I really, really do. I am going to see them on Tuesday, in my favourite tiny venue. I saw them in the Barrowlands, on Tuesday I will see them in King Tut's Wah Wah Hut, which despite what the wiki says, holds 250, maybe, tops. I am so excited, you guys. I mean, I almost cried at the Barrowlands show. They even showered us with fake snow. It was AMAZING.

Slow Pony Ride- The Weepies

I have this list in my head of all the bands I have to see before I die/they break up.  It used to have Hanson, MCR, Panic and FOB on it. Now only Iron and Wine, The Weepies and The Hush Sound remain. This is a song about finally being okay- about leaving something behind.

Saturday Superhosue- Biffy Clyro

Forget Travis, forget KT Tunstall and Glasvegas and all the other shit Scotland is putting out right now. Biffy Clyro are amazing, and 'Puzzle' is a masterpiece of an album. Also, I like it when bands from Glasgow actually sound like it. There's nothing that fucks me off more than when people put on a fake American singing voice.

Sadie- Alkaline Trio

Alkaline Trio weren't the first band I ever saw (the first band I ever saw was Matchbox 20 at The Old Fruitmarket, followed by Jimmy Eat World at the Queen Margaret Union. Fuck me but that show was empty) but I kind of fell in love with their dark stories.

Sister Awake- The Tea Party

Completely overblown Canadian rock. With sitars. <3

(Ok, so I managed to not get any of what I classify as 'bandom bands' in. I feel that this also includes other 'scene' bands, like The Audition and Mayday Parade etc. This may mostly exist only in my BRAIN, because I go and see these bands in the same venues and see all of the same people all the time.)

So I'm off work today because I feel like crap, but all I want to do is bake  these.  Having already baked this and this, I am confident in the wisdom of Deb. Though if I actually eat any of it I will probably be sick. Oh well, they'll last till tomorrow?

Deb's recipes are consistently fab, and she's very open about what works and what doesn't. I also like her recipe style-  not too many instructions to flap over.

I am still writing Brendon/Bob, and it continues to grow way beyond what I expect. It is also COMPLETELY ANGST FREE. Yes, I know! Anyone who has ever been in any of the fandoms were I wrote will know that my stories are usually a) short and b) filled with ANGST. Normally someone dies. But not this time! This time they just fall in love and go mini-golfing. Pirate mini-golfing.

I'm feeling share-y, and there are new people on my flist ( waves) so ask me anything you want about me.

So, I have a myspace. I haven't touched it in oh forever, but I keep seeing all the bands that I like have myspace. Here's the thing - my myspace friends are [profile] always_august and Tom. That's it. I really have whole swathes of issues with it- for one thing, the whole myspace photo angle is SO spectacularly unflattering for me.

So I want to add bands, but also am wary of the whole thing. Honestly, I though I thought the internet was supposed to solve that problem.

Any of you guys have a myspace? Maybe we should have a bandom myspace friending meme. Or something.

Anyway, meme!
