Just a heads up - do yourself a favor and get the Pink CD coming out on October 28th. It's fantastic. The woman is a bleed-on-the-page performer and song writer. (I mean that in the best way possible.)

I got a bit of a preview - and I'm loving it. (Well, aside from song 5...lol.)

But - when you do get it, pay EXTRA attention to SONG 8 - "Glitter In The Air" - it's her and a piano, and just WOW. Adore adore adore that song. The lyrics are fantastic, and the way she sings it... just, you have to hear it!

Lyrics transcribed by me under the cut - :)

There are moments when fandoms collide...

And then there are moments where you find yourself watching a diner scene from "Sons of Anarchy" - featuring a very TENSE and TESTOTERONE-LEADED confrontation between rival outlaw biker types... And you end up thinking WTFFFFFFFFF!!!

Because as fantastic and outside of himself as Charlie Hunnam is in this role (and MAN, it's a WORLD of improvement on his former roles when it comes to skill, accent, the look, etc.) - you just can't get over the fact that you're watching...

GET THIS!!!

Vincent from Beauty & the Beast, Walter Skinner from The X-Files and Nathan Maloney from the UK Queer AS Folk - sitting at a table in a family restaurant talking about drugs, threatening each other with extreme violence, and wearing enough tats, denim and leather to make a bike fetishist orgasm on the spot...lol.

It's CRACK-TASTIC!!! hehe...

Mitch Pileggi, Ron Perlman and Charlie Hunnam. My oh my....

:)

Hugs

xof

ETA - On a silly side note, there is OFFICIALLY now only two degrees of separation between GACKT & AIDAN GILLEN!!! Not to mention, GACKT & DAVID DUCHOVNY!!! Thud....lol. (All thanks to Ron Perlman being in "Bunraku".) I love my small entertainments, yes I do.

Some of you may have already heard this story, but if not - you MUST MUST MUST listen to these clips of the new lead singer for "Journey" - !!!

"Faithfully"



"Open Arms"



Basically the story is that one of the members of Journey started browsing through YouTube on a whim to get ideas for the "new voice" they needed for the group. Completely by chance he happened upon this Filipino singer named Arnel Pineda playing in a group called The Zoo.

One listen to the lead singer and the Journey member was STUNNED - the singer is truly amazing, voice sooooo much like Steve Perry's that it's fantastic!

Journey kept leaving messages on YouTube trying to get in contact, but the singer thought it was a joke and almost ignored it, but his friend told him to at least make the phone call - because if it was true, he'd never forgive himself to have missed out - and tah dah - he got it!

I strongly urge you to give these two clips a listen - both for the delight in hearing him and because it's always nice to take a walk down memory lane...lol. (Just imagine what he'll sound like on stage with a decent sound system - wow!)

Because I needed the pick me up and because I think these two need as wide an audience as they can get - I give you:

The Prime Minister & Sebastian from "Little Britian" - if you haven't watched anything involving these two, you ARE MISSING OUT!!! Hilarious, over the top and completely fantastic. I encourage you to take a look at these clips - they will have you smiling, laughing out loud and loving the time it took you to watch. To me, S&PM are THE reason to watch LB - they will always be my favorite skit pair from that show.

If you don't know anything about them - Sebastian is an assistant to the Prime Minister of Great Britian (played by Anthony Stewart Head of Buffy and Doctor Who fame). Sebastian is completely in love with his boss, and goes to any and every extreme to make it known...lol.

I've got several of the best skits linked under the cut and I truly hope you watch - they are a riot!!!

And just to add to the fun - here's an hilarious fanvid set to "Girlfriend" - !!!

ETA - "Little Britain Live" - OMG! Nekkid Sebastian...THUD!

And I thought what little I'd seen of Dante's Cove was amusing with soft core gay porn mixed in.

Now I discover a show called "The Lair" - Wikipedia Entry Here - with the best quote I've heard today:

"But it doesn't prove that there are gay vampire witches operating a sex club on the island!"

THUD! lol... The Lair - Official Site

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Why's that funny? Because there ARE gay vampire witches operating a sex club on the island...snicker.

Yes - we have guilty pleasure hot buttons here - gay, vampire, sex clubs...oh my! Add in some cheesy b-actor narrative, and a lot of naked men simulating sex with some full frontal and creepy horror movie music, and this show is quite something. (I'm still trying to decide what kind of something...lol, but I'm still watching too!)

Well - it's been forever and an age since the main (older) Highlander slash archive has been actively updated. Which is a shame. But good news to report....

Per Killa:

I feel we've gone far, far too long without an Automated Archive in Highlander fandom, and finally decided to go ahead and take matters into my own hands.

About a year ago, I did attempt several times to engage Ann Fountain at Seventh Dimension in conversation to see whether such a project might be coordinated with the existing archive, but she didn't express any interest in the idea. In the meantime, elseware and evildrem began working on adapting an existing academic document archive for our purposes, but real life and the realities of the adaptation process have kept this project from reaching fruition. It's been almost a year since the project began, and it's plain to me that we (and I put myself on that list of we) haven't had the collective time or energy to devote to making a collaborative project like that work, no matter how worthy it might be. That's not to say that it might not provide a better, more robust archive solution in the future -- merely that I think we need something that's working right now.

Robin Serrano at Slashcity has been my hero in so many ways over the past few years, but she is even more so now. When I approached her about creating an eFiction Highlander Archive along the lines of the Kirk/Spock archive I already manage, she not only jumped right in to help and to set it up for me, but she *donated all the bandwidth and services needed to run it.* So, this whole thing is a gift from Robin to Highlander fandom, and I really can't thank her enough. (Thanks also to Carene, hafital, MacGeorge, and JoTribe, who have been helping me get the bugs ironed out, and to Unovis for getting me off my butt.)

Okay, so I think this is about ready for prime time -- or at least for people to try it out and let me know how it's working.

**New Highlander Fiction Archive this way!**

http://hlfiction.net/

Please go check it out, register, and start uploading stories if you can. I will be so grateful. Right now it's like the Killa Fic Archive, and that's just sad! Please give my stories some company. They are lonely.

Killa

P.S. If there is anyone who knows how to customize eFiction, and who wants to help me with a few minor questions, please email me, and thank you!

For folks on my flist who enjoy Highlander fics or who have written a few themselves - run! don't walk to this new site. It would be great to have as many fics there as possible. Individual or small group fic sites are great, but one stop shopping like this archive could be is like a candy store on acid...lol.

Okay - who amongst you remembers the HORROR that was the school/band/club fundraisers in school??? Come on, I know you do!!! I was put through everything from selling Christmas wrapping paper door to door, to Gormet suckers and M&M's in the halls of my school. The paper was like ... groan....lol. But the candy!! Gooooooood lawd, the boxes we had to lug around for this academic club or that. We were like the pushers of our day, babes - I tell you. Anyone wanting a jones just had to hunt down a beta club member or band member and they were rocking on a sugar high for the next couple hours...lol.

And let's not talk about how much of that candy *disappeared* or even worse, you ended up eating YOURSELF!!! lol....

Ohhhhh, and my favorite - grade school - mathathon. What whacked out idiot decided it was a good idea for preteens to go door to door selling the "potential" for success??? lol... Like for every right answer you got, so and so would donate a quarter - or a dollar if you were realllllly lucky. Ha... Just think how many dangerous situations kids and their parents got put in just to fund the new band uniforms...lol. "Hello, Mr. Smith. I know you're our neighbor from a block over, and I don't really know you at alllllll - but would you mind sponsoring me for the mathathon???" *quick glances to your mom to make SURE you weren't standing there on the wierdo/guy's doorstep all by yourself...ha*

Annnnyway - I fully commiserate with all the kids (esp. public school kids) who are continually subjected to the ***FUN*** (read - ordeal) that is school fundraising. And as such, I trullllly hope and encourage my flist to give a couple seconds to take a gander over at [livejournal.com profile] mo_chailin_rua - 's lj and see if you want to help out her efforts for her luvly son. Hey, there's CHOCOLATE!!! And nuts!! And candles!! And *gasp* wrapping paper!!! And sooo much more...lol.

Have a heart....
