A couple of memes

LJ is getting just like my RL work -- backlogs and deliverables everywhere.  No time for both, so I guess I should start buying lottery tickets again so I can quit my job, retire in style, buy a computer, and spend my days doing the important things (read "LJ things" here.)  *g*

So ... first, the "5 fandoms" meme (because desert_rifka asked me to):

1.  Total number of fandoms I like:  3 definite (4 if I can count Manna's "The Administration" here); one more that I'm just dipping my toes into (it has to do with math *winks at Mouse*); one final one that's being held out to me like a shiny apple (see this post's icon)

2.  My first fandom ever:  Oz

3.  My most recent fandom:  dueSouth (or "The Administration")

4.  Five fandoms that mean a lot to me:  Oz, Lost, dueSouth, ("The Administration")

5.  Tag 5 people to put this in their journal:  alinewrites,  ccoralacid,maggie33,  morgared,  msdaccxx

 

And then ... the "5 songs" meme (because alinewrites and  crazybutsound asked nicely):

Five favourite songs (ask me this on a different day, and you might get different answers):

  • "Because The Night"  --  Patti Smith Group
  • "Cassé"  --  Nolwenn Leroy
  • "Hallelujah"  --  Jeff Buckley
  • "Lost At Sea"  --  Eisley
  • "Shape Of My Heart"  --  Sting

I'm tagging:  msdaccxx (I foresee total paralysis setting in as you try to choose), catheights,  callmeri,  j_amanda,  rileyc

Apologies if you've already done this and I missed the post ....

Hey, if you haven't done these memes, consider yourself tagged! When I was trying to think of people, I couldn't remember whether or not you'd done them. :-)

I've done them, but this will give me a chance to refine my answers lol And time to upload the songs on YSI - which has been incredibly slow lately *giggles*

Heee! Nolwenn Leroy! *giggles* I do love that song myself. :-) And as for Shape of my Heart, it's probably my fave Sting song ever, ever. <3 Love it. Also love the sort of remix Craig David did for him, which they sing together, Rise and Fall.

And see? Wasn't that hard to do, now, was it? ;-)

NOLWENN LEROY??? (I never heard the song)

Because the night -great. And Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley... Best song EVER!

And your question about Nolwenn Leroy is what, exactly? Some of the record stores here do know that Piaf and Aznavour aren't the only French singers people listen to. ;-)

Actually, I'd never heard of her before I bought the CD last Sunday. I was just curious, and I got lucky. Ask Jem if she has the song.

Nolwenn Leroy (ROFL)
I think there's a long long way between Piaf and her -I'm talking about the talent. But I'm being dishonest because I don't know her songs. Just seeing her is enough.

She's certainly lovely in the CD photo. That's all I've seen.

So, if you think I could do better in finding French singers, give me some suggestions. It's hard to find international music CDs that can be listened to for preview, so I really am just buying blind when I get anything like this.

I'd love to, although Jem's probably better at that. Just tell me more precisely what kind of music you like, to make it easier.

My musical tastes are very catholic. I'm not much for rap, or hip-hop, or soul, or music where the singers just seem to be screaming and you can't understand a word of the lyrics, but apart from that I'm pretty much open for anything. I'm in the process of making a list of my CD and LP holdings (because msdaccxx asked me the same question); I'll let you see it when I'm done. That should help. :-)

Nolwenn Leroy ? Ah bon.

Ok, je vais tâcher de répondre à ce questionnaire sur les "5 fandoms"... aussitôt que je saurai ce que c'est qu'un "fandom".
C'est quoi un fandom, Karen ?

I used the same test Aline did. A "fandom" for me is something that you talk about with other people or where there's fanfic to be read. I'm going to guess that one of yours will be Queer As Folk. ;-)
