Happy birthday to [personal profile] loonilicious! I hope you have/had a wonderful day! *hugs*

Happy Halloween/Samhain Everyone! To celebrate this, our day of Creep, I will round out this year's October Song a Day posts with one of the only songs I can't listen to by myself. The first time I heard György Ligeti's "Musica Ricerrcata, II" was when I saw the preview for Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut. I was so disturbed by the preview, specifically because of the music, that I only saw the film under duress. There is something so unsettling about Dominic Harlan's piano playing on this track; even though it's pretty just a half-step being played over and over again it causes goosebumps for me every time I hear it. I have no idea why I own this soundtrack because it's not like I can listen to it without skipping the first and final tracks. So...enjoy?

And here, have a slightly appropriate unicorn chaser. :)

Okay, I guess that'll do us for another year. Thanks for listening; I hope some of you heard some stuff you like. Now: NaNoWriMo. :)

Name poll

Coming up with names has always been the most difficult part of writing for me; sometimes I get so hung up on them that I leave them out altogether (a practice that annoyed my writing groups in college considerably). I'm in the middle of writing something new and I'm having a bitch of a time, so I thought I'd put it to my lovely and helpful flist. Basically I'm just trying to create a list, they don't have to be the names you'd name your children or anything, just ones that appeal to you. :)

[Poll #1442667]

Also, I'm currently obsessed with the following stanzas from Conor Oberst's "MOAB."

Some will spend their precious time
Trying to decorate their lives
Taking measurements for some new look they want
So from 1-10, 10's exactly what I am
0 being everything I'm not

Tell me what you like
Is it less than 5?
Is it less than 5?

I'll upload the song when I get home. Thanks in advance for anyone who takes the time to do my little poll!

I WANT TO WRITE BUT I HAVE NO TIME. *growls in frustration*
