6-Month Mark…

October 22, 2008 — 7 Comments

So… I have noticed, I don’t know if you have, but I seem to have a 6-month mark. It’s basically me finding something, obsessing over it for 6 months, and then sort of… there? It’s still there, but not getting mad over it anymore.

At least it’s been like that since Harry Potter… I am almost pretty sure. I pretty much disliked the last two books, for OBVIOUS reasons, some smart people might notice… and friends will pretty much know. So it all sort of crushed something inside of me…

Main thing is, I don’t read as much as I was reading in my 2003-2006 period, but that’s another topic.

Since then, I’ve been jumping fandoms… now, is it because some fandoms are not good? Or is it something about me? Can’t I hold my interest longer than six months??

The WB’s Popular Music?

October 14, 2008 — 7 Comments

If you were a fan of The WB’s Popular, you were probably a fan of its music… or at least a couple of the tunes. Anyway, back in the day… I was probably a big BIG fan of the show, proven by this:

The WB\'s Popular - Fan-made - OST

Looks pretty darn good, non? I made it, actually… this backcover looks much better than the cover, because obviously I spend 3-times more hours on it. I even took the trouble to find the Warner, Sony Music (why?), Columbia (why?) logos, and the text I got from some Warner Music albums I own.

This is the tracklist I made in 2001, I probably have a whole bunch of other tracks, so now it will likely be a double-disc. Shall I work on a Vol. 2? xD

  1. Kendall Payne – Supermodels (Popular’s Main Theme)
  2. Tyrese Lately
  3. Wiseguys – Ooh La La
  4. Dido – Honestly OK
  5. Groove Armada – I See You Baby
  6. David Bowie – Changes
  7. Youngstown – Will You Marry Me? (Cheesy Boy Band Song)
  8. Vitamin C – Not that Kind of Girl
  9. SisQo – Thong Song
  10. Sugarhill Gang – Rapper’s Delight
  11. Spandau Ballet – True
  12. Sir Mix-a-Lot – Baby Got Back
  13. Falco – Rock Me Amadeus
  14. Sydney Forest – High School Highway (Popular’s End Theme)

Will You Marry Me? is the only poorly ripped from TV track. Care to add other tracks in the show that were on the original broadcast? I know of some… Actually, take that back. I found the post back up~ Will post that up later…

**EDIT**
I think I have most of the tracks, but Season 2 information is very lackin’ – If you’ve got song info from the original broadcast that is missing, please post away~~~ xD
The WB’s Popular Track List by Episode PDF (99Kb)

I am pretty sure I’m better designing now, so maybe I should re-make this album xD. It’s not like there are the best hi-res Popular stills out there… someone help? ^^

Today ends the round of Marit Larsen postings, as Oct. 13th (eh… unlucky number!) marks the release of Marit’s sophomore album. Did you buy her debut? Under the Surface is one of my favorite albums, mustered by the pretty penny I paid to get it. LOL’

Anyway… if you were a bad blogger, or a bad internet user the past week and missed Marit’s music posting, I’m gonna have all the tracks to listen to until next week… so THIS POST will be modified on Sunday 19th. In the meantime, try to enjoy Marit’s music… though it’s a pretty crappy rip, but it’s good enough to savour it… and doesn’t spend much of my bandwith.

So here it is! Here it goes~~~ xD The Chase!!

DELETED

1. The Chase (3.33)
2. If A Song Could Get Me you (3.30)
3. This Is Me, This Is You (4.07)

5. Steal My Heart (3.48)
6. Is It Love (4.51)
7. Fuel (2.07)

Ten Steps…

October 4, 2008 — Leave a comment

The upload of the day! xD Marit sure does know how to tease listeners…

Just listened to it a minute ago… a bit later than I intended (it showed already 200 plays), but I was listening to the soundtrack of Kiraware Matsuko no Issho (Memories of Matsuko) – Man, that film gets me each time in the final “Okaeri”. Even the OST makes me mush inside…

Anyway, back on Ten Steps… of the 4 tracks released already, this is by far the more country-ish that I’ve listened I think. At first, I thought I was hearing a Dixie Chicks intro xD – But Marit’s got a talent for sounding sweet about not so sweet things… ha! “I’m about to break your heart,” she says… but she’s so chirpy! It’s scary x’D

Marit… but I want more. xD

Are you listening to Marit’s songs? She just released This is Me, This is You on her MySpace, and there’s a new video…  Marit Larsen!! Sin nya singel!! xD “I’ve Heard your Love Songs”

Kawaii desuNE! xD
