gluesticks and friends list mixes  


My gluestick ran out and I'm feeling rather lost; I've been pasting things into my inspiration notebook all morning and my fingers are tacky. My 2006 resolutions (if you could call them that) are rather vague, but I was afraid of being too specific, of locking myself into something that I could never achieve. I suppose all you can do is try.

Tonight is dinner with my 2 best girlfriends, Sarah & Kristy; I haven't caught up with the 2 of them together since before I left for England. I've seen Kristy almost every other week but Sarah not at all, and I'm rather looking forward to seeing her again. Last night I received a wonderful package from dear sea__secret, containing a mix tape which I immediately put on our loungeroom stereo, some zines, a letter, prettiful journal and notecards. I curled up on the lounge and read through everything, basking in the glow of friendship. Thankyou so much Jess ♥


the friends list soundtrack meme(!) {stolen from... somewhere. eep. and then modified anyway.}

the idea is to have a complete soundtrack with one song from each of my lj friends. i'll make a "friends list" mix cd (as I am addicted to mixes at the moment!) with a cover that includes all the details of which song belongs to who. If you would like to be immortalised forever in my friends list soundtrack/mix cd, here's what you do: pick out one-two songs you would like to represent you. Then comment & send it to me via yousendit or some such thing. You can send your all time favourite song, a new favourite, or just any song that you relate to & you feel describes you well.

Also along these same lines, I am going to make an "allegria" soundtrack/mix cd, but with songs that YOU think represent me (or just that I would plain like). So if you can, please upload or send a song or two that you think either represents me, that you think I would just like, or reminds you of me. Then I'll have 2 wonderful cds, handpicked by some of my favourite people ever :)

I like your resolutions. I have made one to read a book every month, not as good as your every-week one but I think when uni goes back I wouldn't be able to keep up that kind of pace!
    scarlet's walkkisstheviolets on January 5th, 2006 10:52 pm (UTC)
hehe, at the rate i'm going, i don't think i'll be able to keep up with that pace either, i think i might have been a bit too ambitious with that one ;)
elizabethlizzi_barth on January 5th, 2006 08:52 am (UTC)
aw, your resolutions make me happy :) I definitely need to get more creative. I feel so much better when I am, but I get distracted and blahblahblah.

And I would love to be on your CD! Father Lucifer, by Tori Amos for me :) I'm assuming you'd have it anyway.. but if you'd like a nice easy YSI link I can upload it for you :)

i am going to make you a copy of a cd someone gave me. i think you might like her. email me your address?

    scarlet's walkkisstheviolets on January 5th, 2006 10:54 pm (UTC)
that would be wonderful :)
A World of Fragile Things: BSB - Kevaussiekitty on January 5th, 2006 09:22 am (UTC)
<3 adores your goals. I remember when I use to make mix cassettes all the time. Funny making mixes seemed to stop at the same time I got a cd burner. Not sure why.

Anyway, I will need to have a little think. *is very determined to not pick Tori songs, as it would be so unoriginal that it would be beyond funny.
you got you a fast horse darlin'thebluebells on January 5th, 2006 09:56 am (UTC)

Could Tori's live version of Sugar from To Venus And Back please represent me? :D I'm assuming you have it in mp3 already, but let me know otherwise and I will upload it. Love you, hope you have a great time tonight! :) xxx
    scarlet's walkkisstheviolets on January 5th, 2006 11:00 pm (UTC)
i would love it if you could possibly upload it, if you can -- i'm just making the cd at work, and don't have any of my tori albums with me :(
thankyou so much darling! i love that version :)

Here's my favourite song of all time:

The Smiths - There Is A Light That Never Goes Out
    scarlet's walkkisstheviolets on January 5th, 2006 11:02 pm (UTC)
thankyou so much <3
ps: i am writing you a letter this weekend. AT LAST!! *hides*
petracollarbone on January 7th, 2006 10:35 am (UTC)
you're welcome.
hehe, I thought you'd never do it :D
by the way, did you get my christmas card?
    scarlet's walkkisstheviolets on January 8th, 2006 10:49 pm (UTC)
hehe, I'm SO sorry for taking so long, eeeeeek.
I did get your Christmas card, thankyou somuch!!
unfortunately, I threw out the envelope already, and realised this weekend that I wasn't sure if you were at the same address you were at in December 2004... can you please let me know if you are, or if you have a new addy? You can email me at jade@faerywinged.org if it has changed, otherwise I will send it off in the next day or so :)

ahhh, i'm thoroughly inspired by your resolutions and these mix ideas! i'm going to have to ponder song choices for a bit. it's been far too long since i've done and mixing, and i'm afraid even longer since i've written to you, dear jade. hopefully i'll be able to spend some down time in the near future remadying both! xoxoxo
    scarlet's walkkisstheviolets on January 5th, 2006 11:03 pm (UTC)

love to you, dearone. xxx

Great Resolutions/Goals.
I started a journal for 2006 and when I saw your post about the community for it I was too late to join =(
But I am still keeping up with my written journal. I spent 30 min this morning cutting and pasting things into it. Therapy for me I guess.
I hope your other goals are kept as well.
Oh! I would love to read another issue of your zine. I hope that does happen! I am working on a new one...titled becoming undefined.
Hope I get it out by March.
Take care *huge hugs*
    scarlet's walkkisstheviolets on January 5th, 2006 11:07 pm (UTC)
i am glad you are still doing the journal anyway, after all, the community is more about keeping a journal, rather than posting to the lj community, if you get what i mean.
all the best with your new zine! :)
Closet Chroniclesmira_yamcha on January 5th, 2006 04:34 pm (UTC)
can you remind me to do this at some point real soon? only not now because i really can't be bothered to do anything :(
jessicasea__secret on January 5th, 2006 06:59 pm (UTC)

    scarlet's walkkisstheviolets on January 5th, 2006 11:08 pm (UTC)
i loved it, thankyou :)

For some reaons the phrase "My gluestick ran out and I'm feeling rather lost" struck me as incredibly amusing.
