Eye of a Cat Productions proudly presents Cissa of Sussex and their debut album, Parramore Island Natural Area Preserve. Tracks listed below:

1. Walter F. González, a heartfelt ballad about a small-town kid with a broken arm who daydreams about being a high-ranking LDS authority.
2. Yellow-browed Woodpecker, a jazzy instrumental.
3. FK Mladost Begaljica, in which all of human longing is epitomised in the blank strips for both 'Home' and 'Away' in the Wikipedia page of a Serbian football club.
4. Moore's Pocket, Queensland, in which my man done left me and all I got's this postcard from far away.
5. Mecher, an experimental spoken-word piece with cellos.
6. Nikolai Melnik, a punk sonnet.
7. Walt Disney Creative Entertainment, a VH1-pleasing light-rock anthem with a lot of angry teenage hair.
8. Embryonic Stem Cell Research Oversight Committees, the one they let the drummer write.
9. Santa Ysabel, California, the sequel to track 4.
10. Jayson Blair, which is in the style of Steve Earle's 'John Walker's Blues' except with the New York Times standing in for the Taliban. Deep, man, deep.
11. Via Panisperna boys, a lengthy ballad detailing the angst of internal politics in a postdoc science community.
12. Salida, a rock anthem.
13. Direction For Our Times, on which I... can't beat the Wiki article.
14. New Tavern Fort, sung from the fort's point of view.
15. Trolley Dollies, shameless bubblegum pop.

1. It begins with a list of all 26 letters of the alphabet.
2. Comment with something for me to talk about that starts with one of those letters. Make me babble about anything -- TV shows, actors, actresses, food, etc. Be creative.
3. One topic per letter -- it's like a claims list! I will cross off letters as topics appear. (Just in case I'm busy check the already requested letters) If you'd like to make more than one request (for different letters), go for it. Just don't steal all the letters.
4. I will post a [series of] new post[s] talking about all 26 topics given to me.

My supervisor said nice things about my introduction. I'm sure my glee will be shattered once she's read the whole thing (and got over the shock of me handing something in on time), but who cares.

In the grand cause of Not Doing Any Work Until Monday, then: Fic meme )

LiveJournal Haiku!

And I like that.

Meme from [ profile] melpemone, who is a wonderful and glorious person who deserves to have all her memes propogated far and wide. Um, that sounds a bit creepy, doesn't it?

Aaaaaanyway, here's the idea: an introductory post for all those people who're reading your LJ but don't know you very well.

Behind the cut )
Gacked from the entire Internet - type your name into the Story Summary search at, and post the best results.

Apparently, self-respecting Mary Sues just aren't called Jenny these days, and I need to change my name to Serenity Tinuviel Moonflower or something, but here's what I got:

Summary: Jenny is tired of her life. She is tired of her job, but most importantly, she is tired of the way men treat her. She has all but given up on life when a fateful wish is made one day and she finds herself in another world. Will the elves be able to make her change her opinion on how males are? Will she find true love in Middle Earth?

*folds arms, looks smug, pretends "with Orlando Bloom Legolas" isn't automatically a given on the end of summaries like this* I can live with that one.

Jennifer and Michael find a strange ring while on their first real archaeolgical dig. This ring seems to want to break their close bond apart. Then all of a sudden they end up in a world that doesn't exsit..or does it? Could this be the answer to all the

The One Ring has really lowered its expectations in recent years, hasn't it? Tsch.

And that's it, pretty much. I don't even get to be an Elrond's Other Daughter. (Why yes, yes I did have a whole storyline plotted out along those lines when I was ten and thought that being an elf and growing up in Rivendell would just be the Best Thing Ever. Well, it would have been. So there.)
It's supposed to be 'choose an artist or band; describe your life based on song titles by that artist', but [ profile] splagxna did it with B5 episode titles instead. B5 episode titles aren't usually on the cheerful side, but I can live with angst just fine.

Fun, fun, fun! )

Took the Belief-O-Matic quiz again, when I was feeling in a particularly theistic mood. It's an interesting quiz. A few months ago, it thought I was a Buddhist; before that, it was pretty sure I was a neo-pagan of some sort. I've always thought I was agnostic, but that's never got higher than 43% on the answers list. So, maybe not.

This time, the answers I gave match the following belief systems:

1. Reform Judaism (100%)
2. Liberal Quakers (92%)
3. Unitarian Universalism (84%)
4. Sikhism (83%)
5. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (81%)
6. Bahá'í Faith (76%)
7. Orthodox Judaism (73%)
8. Neo-Pagan (73%)
9. Islam (67%)
10. Mahayana Buddhism (63%)

Reform Judaism? Hmm. Interesting. Also interesting that it's thrown a very varied combination of other beliefs in there as well. I think I confused it.
