Monday Random Ten…

Multiple people dressed as cats for the musical "Cats". Text reads "Thundercats, Ho!" Very funny.

I made a major score at the thrift store on post recently when a very very evil friend of mine took me there this past weekend. In total Lane Kim fashion I almost died when I saw the rack of CDs almost as tall as I was full of finds that I couldn’t imagine people parting with. I was whisked away to times past.

Music holds such an incredibly ability to recall memories that I have tucked away to keep for myself. They sometimes will spill out with abandon and fill me with emotions. Beautiful and ugly alike, and sometimes twisted up and tangled.

Today I share with you songs and memories. Well, the memories I keep, but the songs that bring the memories I share with you.

  1. Already Gone — Kelly Clarkson (OK, this one I needed long ago, so it brings the memory now. Thanks Ms. Clarkson.)
  2. Josephine — The Wallflowers (I may have bought this because the cover looked pretty with the stars on it!)
  3. Swimming in Your Ocean — Crash Test Dummies
  4. The Islander — Nightwish
  5. The Other Side of the Mirror — Stevie Nicks
  6. Devil’s Dance Floor — Flogging Molly
  7. Tribute to Johnny — Smashing Pumpkins
  8. Everything Sucks — Reel Big Fish
  9. Matchbox 20 — Unwell
  10. Get This Party Started — Pink

If anyone cares to share their memories songs, please do so in comments!

Seoul is still on the map, and the G20 came and went.

It is beautiful out there! The world is drenched in a quilt of well-worn pink, orange, gold, ruby-red, burgundy, and faded browns. We took a slow (very very slow) walk up to Nam San the other day to take pictures and play in the leaves and let the bite in the air push our lungs open. In was well worth the wearing out of my legs, and the pictures were amazing.

Anyone else going to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow Part I this week? *is jealous* We’ve been seeing only free movies on base to save up for the IPark IMAX viewing when it hits Seoul. NO ONE TALK TO ME ABOUT THE MOVIE UNTIL I SEE IT I MEAN IT I WILL DISOWN YOU!!!!11!!ELEVEN!!

*ahem*

Now it is crunch time, and I have a stack of back-logged writing to finish. So, here you go, your weekly pick-me-up. Please to be playing along!

  • Turn on your iPod or music device of choice (our XBox 360 plays ours from the teevee!)
  • Blog the first 10 songs that come up (no cheating! yeah! no cheating! *wink wink*)
  • Have fun. If you post a video, I strongly encourage lyrics and video descriptions.

Now with little more ado, since I am not a concise person, I bring you this week’s MRT:

  1. Anything But You — The Moldy Peaches
  2. Crazy Little Thing Called Love — Queen
  3. Face to Face (demon remix) — Daft Punk
  4. Rotten Apples — Smashing Pumpkins

  7. Poker Face — Lady Gaga
  8. A Place Called Home — Kim Richey
  9. I Believe In a Thing Called Love — The Darkness

I think, more than any Monday I have seen in a while, we are going to need an MRT today.

We have a little conference coming to Seoul this week…you may have heard of it. A few important people are gonna show up and chat about some stuff. I have some thoughts. I may discuss them (ad nauseam) in the future.

Anyhow…on w/ the show.

If you haven’t played before:

  • Turn on your iPod or other music playing device.
  • Turn it to “shuffle.
  • Blog (or drop into comments if you don’t have a blog or Facebook/LiveJournal/Dreamwidth/any medium for such things) the first ten songs that come up!
  • Share!
  • Enjoy!

I am not playing by the rules, and you don’t have to either. I first heard this done at Feministe by Jill, who did it on Fridays, and I adopted Natalia’s idea of doing it on Mondays, because my Mondays needed a lift more than Fridays.

  1. To Binge (featuring Little Dragon) — Gorillaz
  2. Viva La Vida (Coldplay Cover) — Lady Gaga
  3. Eternal Flame — The Bangles
  4. Follow Me — 2NE1
  5. Technologic — Daft Punk

Video Description: Filmed at Vigário Geral favela in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the video features Michael singin’ his tune while people are dancing, singing, drumming (on a variety of really cool drums), running, jumping, and children are playing in the streets, in the buildings, and on the beach.

Monday Random Ten

Mark Hammill as Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca, and Harrison Ford as Han Solo. When teenagers try to get liquor in outer space. Text bubbles read: LUKE: We could have the Wookie it up. HAN: Yeah, you look like you're over 21. CHEWY: Ah, I'm not sure about this.

Are the leaves turning where you are? Do you have a yard full of them?

We don’t have either, really, yet. I noticed yesterday that the cherry blossom trees are just beginning to pink up at the top, and the oaks are just as stubborn as ever. I expect they will have their leaves clean through until next May just like this year.

The apples are in abundance, and I have found a few varieties on local stands that I haven’t seen before! Oh the excitement! I am dusting off old favorite Fall recipes and trying out some new ones. The chill in the air is pleasant after a long and wretchedly hot Summer, and it is surely welcomed.

I really miss most of you back home. Some of you that I haven’t talked to in a long time… I really miss you this time of year.

On with the show.

  1. Here it Goes Again — OK Go
  2. Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness — Smashing Pumpkins
  3. Beginnings — Chicago
  4. Loose Lips — Kimya Dawson
  5. Mamma Mia! — Mamma Mia! Company (Korean Cast)
  6. I’ll Turn to You — Christina Aguilera
  7. Get Your Hands Off My Woman — The Darkness
  8. Love Will Never Do (Without You) — Janet Jackson
  9. It’s Alright, It’s OK — Leah Andreone
  10. Carol King — Where You Lead

I sincerely hope you all have a great week, with more downtime than I have staring me in the face. What I was thinking letting us take on all of these activities I am not sure…but I will tell you, the smiles on faces around here are worth it.

Have a great one, all!

Have you ever been in a rain storm, and thought “Hey! No problem! I will just use my beautiful new rainbow-colored umbrella!” only to have the storm laugh at you and go “Oh yeah? Well EFF YOUR UMBRELLA!”

That is pretty much the sitch here in Seoul today. I can’t even see the high rises across town, which is unusual. The typhoon we had a few weeks back didn’t seem this bad, although we slept through most of it and it did knock down our drop ceiling in our bathroom.

But now it is a thing of beauty to watch. The streaks of silver blue dividing the sky, the rivulets of water beading down the panes of our sliders to the patio, the pools of water making their way to the drain at the far end, the sheets of water pouring off of the roof of the balcony itself. And of course, the sweet face of Princess Kitty Boo Boo Fuck sleeping by my side, curled up like a tiny ball of cuteness waiting for me to break it to her (and Anna) that that is not her real name.

A perfect day for an MRT if ever there was one.

  1. Since U Been Gone — Kelly Clarkson
  2. High Fidelity — Daft Punk
  3. Break My Fall — Breaking Benjamin
  4. Daydreaming — Miranda Cosgrove
  5. Dearest — Buddy Holly
  6. She Said — Cold
  7. This Time — The Wonder Girls
  8. She Will Be Loved — Maroon 5
  9. Breathing — Lifehouse
  10. Wait — Get Set Go

That’s all I’ve got for now.

The site is going to be going under construction soon(ish). Hopefully it won’t take too long. In the mean time, I recommend that some of you check out what I’ve got going over at FWD/Forward with the crew there, and also at Change.org’s Women’s Rights blog.

Have a great week!
