Addedum: just a meme

It's late. I'm bored. But I'm too distracted to read. And I'm not sleepy. So, here's a meme I snurched from tactileson. Why not.

The Meme: List ten musical artists that you like, and then go answer the questions.

1) Concrete Blonde
2) VNV Nation
3) R. E. M.
4) David Bowie
5) The Dresden Dolls
6) The Decemberists
7) The Cure
8) The Sisters of Mercy
9) The Crüxshadows
10) Rasputina

What was the first song you ever heard by 6? "The Legionnaire's Lament."

What is your favourite album of 8? Floodland. Though First and Last and Always is a close second.

What is your favourite lyric that 5 has sung? "I'm halfway home now/half hoping for a showdown/cause I'm not big enough to house this crowd/It might destroy me/but i'd sacrifice my body/if it meant i'd get the Jack part OUT." Frell, yeah.

How many times have you seen 4 live? Sadly, never.

What's your favourite song of 7? "Fascination Street."

What is a good memory you have concerning the music of 10? The first time I heard Melora sing "Barracuda" at the now-defunct Echo Lounge here in Atlanta.

Is there a song of 3 that makes you sad? About half of them, actually. But, the saddest..."Wendell Gee."

What is your favourite lyric that 2 has sung? "Set me aflame and cast me free./Away, you wretched world of tethers./Through the endless night and day, I have never wanted more./Always thought that I would stand before the faceless name of justice./Like some law unto myself, like a child of God again."

What is your favourite song by 9? "Tears."

How did you get into 3? When I was first exposed to college radio while at the University of Colorado, the first R. E. M. song I heard was "Driver 8," and I was instantly hooked.

What was the first song you heard by 1? "Tomorrow, Wendy."

What's your favourite song by 4? "I'm Deranged."

How many times have you seen 9 live? Er...ten times for sure, probably more.

What is a good memory you have concerning 2? Nar'eth meeting Gigi Edgley at The Chamber on October 5th, 2002. Also the first night I heard "Darkangel." Well, Nar'eth heard it, but she told me...

Is there a song of 8 that makes you sad? "Alice."

What is your favourite song of 1? "Why Don't You See Me?"

I did the meme. :D Yayyyy boredom.

Also, in more random news, they don't carry your books at English-language booksellers in Tokyo. I found that out the hard way. :( You should choke a few bitches to get them to sell you worldwide, or something.

Er. Carry on.

I know they show up in English-language shops in other places, such as Europe and the Phillipines. Sadly, I have zero control/input into this sort of thing. I'd personally love to see everything I've written translateed into Japanese.

If I were better and translating things INTO written Japanese (there's a WHOLE other written form, and I still suck mightily using it, hence me taking advanced writing next quarter), I'd totally do it. STUPID STUPID STUPID special written form. ;__; (headdesks, repeatedly)
