Many eons ago, I was given a letter and told to upload five or more songs starting with that letter, and let nobody say I do not eventually get the job done! If you give me, like. A few months, maybe.

This letter was given to me by [livejournal.com profile] thebaconfat, and it was the letter O. You can request one in the comments, if you like!

Yes. I made an Assassin's Creed playlist.

Look, I know I'm obsessed, shut up - I was just - just listening to Lonely Soul and thinking about how religion and control recur as themes in AC, and whether they were going to maintain that into ACII despite the change in setting. And, um. Then I must have...poked through my iTunes and...found a few songs that I, well, sort of think are appropriate and -

Well, I should warn that this is less based on the actual Assassin's Creed, and more the Assassin's Creed that exists inside my head, which may or may not resemble the real one precisely; I'm not sure on that point.

But hey, it's an excuse to post some music! ...And have a post! ...Boy, I haven't been very good at this whole LJ business, have I?

Due to school and Centrelink and insane musicals and me being lazy, I have not posted in a while. It's weird, but I feel great - I've been tired or exhausted a lot, but I feel happier and more productive than I have in ages. I do my work and I clean my room and I wash my clothes and I feel good about it, and I've started reading my books again. I think they missed me. It's nice.

Anyway, I stole this meme from Squeem: comment, get given a letter, and post five or more songs starting with that letter. Squeem gave me W, so here we go! (Test mp3s only, delete in twenty-four hours, buy the albums if you like them. Y'all know the drill, I'm sure.)

Lots of soundtrack music here. )

Oh god I am physically ill. It seems to be a head cold, with accompanying sore throat. I hate sore throats, because they always start off as this horrible itch at the back of my throat, maddeningly impossible to eradicate, and I now have other symptoms like runny nose and watery eyes - in short, nnrrrrrgh, whine, I want ice cream and a hug so I can infect others with my misery.

Seeing doctor on Monday. Believe it or not, that is unrelated to feelings of nnrrrrrgh.

Anyways, to cheer myself up I am going to talk about Wall-E. At least part of my rage at its late distribution in Australia is because I missed all the reaction posts, so if anyone knows where I can find any interesting discussion, be awesome and point me toward it. Or if you've seen it yourself, feel free to discuss in comments. My traitorous siblings are unwilling to discuss IRL. (...or, I guess, stand still and be discussed at by me. I'm not obsessed! What makes you think I'm obsessed?)

Anyway, this is kinda going to be full of animation geekitude and spoilers. Stand back. Here we go. )

EDIT: Oh, and I'm downgrading my hiatus to a semi-hiatus! I'll still be commenting a lot less than usual (is it possible to post a negative number of comments? Huh) but I have a lot of half-typed posts about things I'll be putting up at irregular intervals. Hope everything is cool with you guys. ♥

Okay, as well as being Game Music What I Think Is Awesome, this will be part of my contribution to the Replenish Baco's Music Library Initiative! NOT MY ONLY ONE I HOPE, but yeah, Baco, I'll gladly reupload any songs I've given you.

Misc. Part 2: I hope you like skeletons. )

Okay, class, the second post in Game Music What I Think Is Awesome this month will be Bioshock!

You guys are probably aware by now that I really love this game! It's beautiful and fun and clever and sad, and I will defend it to the death in the face of crazy Internets.

This post will not contain any spoilers beyond what you can find in most reviews. )

Next post: Planescape: Torment, or; Chris Avellone Hates Your Joy

For this month's lessons, I will be posting Video Game Music What I Think Is Awesome. First post: Thief: Dark Project, Metal Age and Deadly Shadows.

A caveat: None of this stuff is all that musical because of the way sound is set up in the game; if anyone wants to get a single mp3 for a specific mission they have to pull the various loops and effects from the files and try and sew them into a roughly coherent whole. The result is generally a sort of 'soundscape', and while Thief has some pretty damn badass soundscapes by necessity, it's an acquired taste. I am gay for the series, so I like them. I totally understand if you guys think they're weird or boring.

Now for musics! )

And that's it for this time - next time I might do either Bioshock or Planescape Torment. Preferences?

Oh my god oh my god I am probably way too excited at this prospect, but, come on, an FPR. A First-Person-Runner/Diver/Climber/Leaper/Misjudge Distance And Faceplant Thirty Feet Down...er. And look at those screenshots. Look at them!

...When did I become so enamoured with first person games? Was it Thief? Did Thief make me this way?

This was actually supposed to be a post when I talked about music, not video games, but I got distracted. Anyway, musics! )

Enjoy!

Last month, my sister and I were Christmas shopping in a music store, and my sister walked up to me with an album and said, "Could you buy this for me?"

It turned out to be because of the coverart, which was really awesome, although we could not in fact make out the name of the band or the album because it was so abstract. To make a long argument short, she eventually bought it herself, and it turned out to rock. (Plus, with the CD inside, the art was even cooler, because you could turn it around and see different things in it.) The album is called Friend and Foe, the band is Menomena, and they have this fantastically odd homemade sound that's as weird as their coverart.

So, I'm going to upload a couple of their songs for you! Along with some other random stuff that I'm digging at the moment. I'll probably upload a few more when the Internet co-operates, so be sure to tell me what you think.

These are mostly m4a, which is what iTunes converts things to. They should play in WinAMP, but if anyone has any trouble, I'll either link to a site that will let you convert things or, if my connection is not sucking, do it myself and re-upload them.

Ready?

Right!

Musics! )

I'll upload some more as soon as I beat Yousendit into submission.

I have terrible timing, because I'm doing a music meme right when [livejournal.com profile] squeemu goes on hiatus even though I stole it from her.

Uh. Squeem, I beg forgiveness and should you not return before the songs expire, I'll re-upload them for you.

Anyway: Seven songs I am into right now. )

IT IS TIME FOR RECS!

YAY, RECS! )

And also a Music Post!

YAY, MUSIC POST! )

...Man, I'm a html NINJA. I ninje away into the...daylight. But still. NINJA.
