(a)Music; If I were stranded on a desert island with only five artists to listen to for the rest of my life, at the moment, I'd choose, Sufjan Stevens, Bright Eyes, Dashboard Confessional(acoustic, full band acoustic albums), Death Cab for Cutie, and Copeland. I'm always willing to listen to something new, but as most people like me will tell you: nothing country, or rap. Most of my friends tell me that when they talk about my music taste to other people, the words 'folk' and 'emo' and 'j-pop' come up. So maybe that gives you a good idea of what I like.
(b)Anime(and all other things Japanese); I'm an otaku, through and through. I organize the local anime club, and a cosplay team(Henderson Kids are Cosplaying!! They're pretty much one and the same.), which is a lot of fun.I've been to one convention (Middle Tennessee Anime Convention 2006), and I plan on going to more. Imparticularly, my friends and I are going to MTAC 2007, and we're all cosplaying. There's about 12 of us so far. Our themes are going to kick ass.
Anyways, my LJ is friends only, sorry about that. E-mail me and I'll add you, most likely. I keep my stuff friends only to keep people from saying things to me like 'you left-wing psyco', or,'omg! i can't believe you support gay rights, you're going to hell!', or, 'dashboard is a sell-out and you're a poser', and the ever popular 'you think you're xxemoxx but you're not because xxblah blahxx and if I put enough xxx everyxwhere that makes me hardxcore and xxemoxx. Oh and fashionxcore.'
Oh how we've shouted, how we've screamed, take notice, take interest, take me with you But all our fears fall on deaf ears, tonight. -Dashboard Confessional
You and me have seen everything to see From Bangkok to Calgary And the soles of your shoes are all worn down The time for sleep is now It's nothing to cry about Cause we'll hold each other soon in The blackest of rooms
If heaven and hell decide That they both are satisfied Illuminate the NOs on their vacancy signs
If there's no one beside you When your soul embarks Then I'll follow you into the dark Then I'll follow you into the dark -Death Cab for Cutie
My eyelids are heavy and the night's wearing on your story's familiar and your innocence is gone we'd burn like the morning then break like your heart fall in love without warning just to fall back apart all fevered and blistered with nothing at stake I feel the warmth of her whisper and the cold of my mistakes her soul in balance my heart in her hand I made her a widow she made me a man -MeWithoutYou
They will see us waving from such great heights, come down now they'll say But everything looks perfect from far away, come down now but we'll stay -The Postal Service
Sing, with your head up, with your eyes closed, not because you love the song, but becasue you love to sing because you love to sing. -Copeland
I know, I know my time has passed, I'm not so young, I'm not so fast, I tremble with the nervous thought of having been at last forgot. -Sufjan Stevens
You're a disgrace to the concept of family the priest won't divulge that fact in his homily I'll stand up and scream, if the mourning remain quiet you can deck out a lie in a suit but i won't buy it I won't join in the procession that's speaking it's peace using five dollar words while praising his integrity just cause he's gone doesn't change the fact: he was a bastard in life thus a bastard in death yeah. - Death Cab for Cutie
Remember the time you drove all night, just to meet me in the morning. And I thought it was strange you said everything changed you felt as if you'd just woke up, and you said; This is the first day of my life. I'm glad I didn't die before I met you. But now I don't care I could go anywhere with you And I'll probably be happy. -Bright Eyes
When you laugh you'll feel my breath there filling up your lungs. And when you cry, those aren't your tears but I'm there falling down your cheek, and when you say you love him, taste me I'm like poison on your tongue- But when you're tired, if you're quiet, you'll hear me singing you to sleep. -MeWithoutYou
At the gates of the embassy, our hands met through the bars as your whisper stilled my heart ... "No, they'll never catch me now." -The Decemberists
You have my attention. Like you've had all the while, since the first day that you made my heart smile with loving eyes and tired sighs and oh You have my attention like a shout through an empty sanctuary speak but a whisper, i'll hear the sermon I'll sing a long the whole day through just do your best to hear me it's all you can do and i'll sing along the whole night through while you sleep safely I'm thinking about you You have my attention. -Copeland
Do you, do you like dreaming of things so impossible? -Dashboard Confessional
