Glee: Asking Awkward Questions and Breaking Bad News with Baby Animals [04 Aug 2011|05:42pm]
So, John bought these two books called Grandma's Dead: Breaking Bad News with Baby Animals and Why is Daddy in a Dress? Asking Awkward Questions with Baby Animals. Because, you know, it's much easier to get through those rough moments when baby animals are involved. So naturally, we decided some of these postcards should be sent to Glee characters.

2 things, just quickly.

1. On my way to Gladstone for my niece's christening. Yay*.

*Please note sarcasm.

Although it does require me to wear a suit, which I'm totally down with.

2. MY LEGEND OF THE SEEKER SEASON 2 DVD'S CAME. AND WHEN I SAW HOW PRETTY AND SHINY THEY WERE, I NEARLY DID TOO. THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL. So, since I was already packed and ready to go, I watched Torn, Hunger and Princess and I giggled and squealed at it on our 60 inch TV.

MAD.

Now I can vid it, yay*!!!

*Note the UTTER LACK OF SARCASM HERE :D

Legend of the Seeker Season 2 is out on DVD today!

If you like hot, powerful women being sassy and taking down big strapping men like nobody's business - well, I would suggest you click on over to Save Our Seeker's Store or LotS on Amazon and buy it! Amazon is offering $15 off for anyone ordering Seasons 1 and 2 together, so get your copy today and do a little something to show how much support the show has.

Oh, and I guess there's a dude with a sword too?

[ mood | dorky ]

So, today on my Twitter feed I was graced with this beauty:



I was hoping that I wouldn't be the only one to pick up on BRIDGET AND TAB TOTALLY BEING GIRLFRIENDS (see 4:47: "...our love LIFE."), and just moments after opening my friends page, I came across an entry by beerbad confirming that I wasn't the only one who picked up on this wonderfully pleasant 'slip of the tongue' (and please let your mind wander wherever it may with that little gem of a saying). THAT'S RIGHT, I'VE DUSTED OFF MY TINHAT AND IT'S SHINING AS BRIGHT AS EVER.

And is it weird that even as an Aussie myself, I find her Australian accent totally adorable? I'm not sure I understand that. But still, I find the American accent cute on her too, especially when a little bit of the Aussie inflection slips out. (I'm also somewhat enamored with Bridget doing an Irish accent).

ANYWAY. Just thought I would spread the love, since it's quite plain to me that everyone who has any interest in anything adorable will want to see it. TAB & BRIDGET, BB'S, YOU ARE SO ADORBS I WISH TO SNUGGLE YOU LIKE TEDDY BEARS.

ETA: OKAY SO EVERYONE IN THE ENTIRE FANDOM CAUGHT THE MENTION OF THEIR LOVE LIFE, AND I LOVE THAT SEEKER FANS ARE ALMOST ALL GUSHING OVER THIS AMUSING LITTLE LINGUISTIC MISSTEP (because we're a bunch of pervy femslashers).

ALSO ETA: 'Did I get you too hard?'...'GET ME AS HARD AS YOU WANT.'

*DIEZ AND IZ DED*

Writer's Block: Boldly going [26 Sep 2010|09:56pm]
[ mood | happy ]

Which fictional world would you choose to visit, and why?


EASY QUESTION.

I'd be all up in The Midlands, Legend of the Seeker style. Or D'Hara. Depending on where Cara and Kahlan are residing. Yeah, that's right. I don't really care what Richard's doing, I've got my tinhat on. In fact, let's banish Richard back to Westland and make Cara the new Lord Rahl, ruler of D'Hara. And of course Kahlan will return to her post in Aydindril where Cara will join her and unite D'Hara with the Midlands. And then they can totally be girlfriends.

Sorry, I'm getting a little carried away. Anyone interested in joining my quest? :P

JFC. What a waste of time and money. I called up to make an appointment with my psych, and the receptionist is already on the phone with someone. Can I hold? Yeah, sure, why not. 20 Minutes later I'm still holding. I hang up and call back from the home phone now that I'm home. Explain the situation. 'Oh no, everyone in that office is with someone right now and have been for a while, I'll get someone to call you back.'

AND WHAT. YOU COULDN'T HAVE TOLD ME THAT BEFORE I WASTED 20 MINUTES (AND A LOT OF MONEY CONSIDERING I WAS ON MY MOBILE) ON HOLD?!

*RAGE*

New Song: Legend of the Seeker [13 Sep 2010|09:00am]
[ mood | chipper ]

Legend of the Seeker is a mighty awesome show.

So I wrote a song about it.

If you'd like to take a listen, you can download it here.

Lyrics under the cut.Collapse )

Please enjoy! And if you like it, share it around!

(And a big thankyou to jarrow for putting me out of my misery with that line that just wasn't happening :P)

How do you feel about corporeal punishment?


Better than I feel about non-corporeal punishment. Now THAT only ends in whole cities caving in.

Vid Rec: Songs For A Girl [11 Sep 2010|05:56pm]
My BFF jarrow has just bestowed upon me (and the rest of the interwebs) a work of art. He is in deep, deep love with Landry/Tyra from Friday Night Lights and has made the most beautiful vid to prove it.

'Songs For A Girl' is 3 vids rolled into one. Three bittersweet vids that made my heart ache for characters I knew absolutely nothing about. I also downloaded the first 3 seasons of Friday Night Lights based solely on this vid, so you know it has to be good.

Go and find it at his journal, here, and leave him a comment and tell him what you think - comments are too few and far between, and are gold to a vidder. Show him some love.

Vid Post: The River Flows In You (Fingersmith - Sue/Maud) [09 Sep 2010|11:21am]
[ mood | tired ]

So. This thing happened where I made a vid. I kind of really hope other people don't think it's terrible.

Vid: "The River Flows In You"
Artist: Yiruma
Fandom: Fingersmith
Summary: Sue/Maud. It's sweet. It's fluffy. It's pretty girls falling in love.
Download: 60.2 MB - Sendspace
Streaming: Youtube

Vid will permanently be available at jarrow's website. Please use the sendspace link until it expires for tracking purposes and as a courtesy to those who provide him free webspace.

A big, huge, MONSTROUS thank-you goes out to jarrow who spent countless hours on Skype teaching me what to do, being a totally awesome beta (I know I told you I hated your face a lot during this process, but it was totally in a good 'my vid will be better if I just shut up and do as he says' kind of way!), giving me a permanent place to put my vid, and for all the other cheerleading, both vid related and non-vid related, over the last couple of months. You're totally my hero.

I'm still very much not over the post-convention depression, but I'm getting there. A really lovely and therapeutic email session is helping, and so is the knowledge that I've gained so much out of my trip, including some very important new friends.

Also, my impending foray back into vidding is giving me something to look forward to sharing with everyone next year. Plans are already in the works to return, and that has certainly brightened my mood considerably :)

I hope everyone is doing well.

Rename! [20 Jul 2010|11:32am]
For ease of use, I have now renamed my account from boi4eliza to jspencer1986 to keep in line with all my other accounts and emails.

I'll also be crossposting from Dreamwidth from now on, rather than posting directly from LJ.

For anybody who might be interested in new music: [08 Feb 2010|07:50am]
I was fortunate enough to get to be a part of an album recently called Acoustika Vol 20. My song 'Old Guitar' caught the attention of 272 Records in the States and I'm now on a compilation CD selling worldwide. I know money is tight for most, but if you enjoy finding new and wonderful music and have a few bucks to spare, there are some great tracks on the album. And it's only US$9.99 + shipping.




ORDER ACOUSTIKA VOL. 20

The Ridiculous Parody, The Album Info, And The Big Thankyou [03 Feb 2010|08:28am]
I'm not big on words. So this is a completely ridiculous parody I wrote to explain the album details. Also, at the end there is more information about the American release of the CD and a thank you to the American fans.



If you want the flashy album post of awesomeness, go here.

You want more details? Leave me a comment here, drop me a line at jb-cd-sales@hotmail.com or contact me through my website.

ALBUM OUT SOON! [10 Sep 2009|05:24pm]
[ mood | ecstatic ]

After a gruelling recording schedule and many coffee-fueled days (and nights), my debut album Forget to Breathe is almost here! The tracks will range from acoustic to hard rock, with a mix of new songs, and some of your old favourites. A release date is yet to be set, but should be scheduled for late October/early November.

NOW IT'S UP TO YOU.

Pre-orders are now being taken, with the added perk of having your copy of the album mailed to you a week prior to the release date. CD's are AU$17 + postage, and are available worldwide. To secure your copy, email jb-cd-sales@hotmail.com with your name, shipping address, order quantity, and payment method. At this time, only Paypal and Bank Transfer are available. Once your order is received, a confirmation email will be sent with details on how to make your payment.

FOR BANDOM FANS, there may be a limited edition double CD set in the works. This will consist of the standard edition album, plus a 3-track bonus CD single containing my 3 bandom songs, 'OTP', 'Pint-Sized Romeo', and 'Boy in the Trucker Cap'. For more information on either the standard edition or limited edition, email jb-cd-sales@hotmail.com
