A Highlander: The Series fanvid set to Metric's "Help, I'm Alive" (or possibly the Vitamin String Quartet instrumental cover) showing immortals coming back to life contrasted with the mortals who don't.

(Also I feel like pretty much any song by P!nk would be appropriate for an Amanda fanvid and/or playlist, but particularly "Bad Influence" and "Raise Your Glass".)

No matter who's playing them, no matter how you interpret their relationship, Holmes and Watson are inseparable because of physics.

"If components in binary star systems are close enough they can gravitationally distort their mutual outer stellar atmospheres. In some cases, these close binary systems can exchange mass, which may bring their evolution to stages that single stars cannot attain."[source]

Iron Man/Tony Stark: TiK ToK* by Ke$ha
Now the party don't start 'til I walk in

Pepper Potts: I'm Not Your Hero by Tegan & Sara
I'm not their hero
But that doesn't mean that I wasn't brave
I never walked the party line
Doesn't mean that I was never afraid
I'm not your hero
But that doesn't mean we're not one and the same

Thor Odinson: If I Had A Hammer by Peter, Paul & Mary
I'd hammer out danger
I'd hammer out a warning
I'd hammer out love between my brothers and my sisters
All over this land

Loki Laufeyson: Die, Motherfucker, Die** by Get Set Go
Die, mother fucker die
I want to see you cry
And then I'll watch you die
I want to hurt you, torture and desert you
Take a hot poker and stick it where the Sun don't shine
Then watch you die

Maria Hill: Maria by Jim Bryant
I've just met a girl named Maria,
And suddenly that name
Will never be the same
To me.

Coulson Lives!: Back in Black by AC/DC
Forget the hearse cause I'll never die
I got nine lives, cat's eyes
Using every one of them and runnin' wild

Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff: Fall Away by The Fray
You fall away from your past
But it's following you

Nick Fury: He's The Wizard and Wonderful from The Wiz and Wicked, respectively***
Okay, bear with me here. Nick Fury is the ultimate Man Behind the Curtain. And he is totally 100% at ease with moral ambiguities and his will lie his ass off and manipulate people if that's what it takes. But he is not in it for money or glory or power. He is in it to get. shit. done. (Just take your dilemma, child/And lay it on the Wizard)

Hawkeye/Clint Barton: Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down) by Nancy Sinatra
Bang bang, I shot you down
Bang bang, you hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, I used to shoot you down.

Captain America/Steve Rogers: Bleed Red by Ronnie Dunn****
Sometimes we're strong, sometimes we're weak
Sometimes we're hurt and it cuts deep
We live this life breath to breath
We're all the same, we all bleed red

The Hulk/Bruce Banner: Lions!***** by Lights
Lions make you brave,
Giants give you faith,
Death is a charade.
You don't have to feel safe to feel unafraid.

*Another Oz reference?

**I am consistent in my Loki song choices, okay?

***The Wizard of Oz/Avengers Fusion of Doom!: Iron Man is the Tin Man, obviously. Coulson and Hill work for the Wizard of Fury in the Emerald City Helicarrier. Captain America is the Scarecrow, and the Hulk is the Cowardly Lion. Thor is Glinda (take a moment to picture Chris Hemsworth in that poofy pink dress and funny hat, I'll wait). Loki is the Wicked Witch of the West. Hawkeye, Dr. Selvig, et al. are the flying monkeys (who were forced to work for the witch due to her having an enchanted Golden Cap). Black Widow is Dorothy, since she's the most badass character of the story.

****I always wanna call him Robin Dunne, but that's the actor guy from Sanctuary.

*****I'm gonna wind up doing an Oz mix, aren't I?

So, I've been volunteering at the UIowa Conservation Lab and outside the lab is a book truck parking lot of sorts. Included amongst these is one labeled "Noisy, Wayward Cart". Which of course leads to Carry On Wayward Son running through my head. Today I added a little post-it note that said CARRY ON MY WAYWARD CART. As you do.

Carry on my wayward cart,
Don't be done before you start,
Lay your weary wheels to rest,
Don't ya squeak no more.

In other pun news, Ithaca is Gorges, and I need a job, but I won't find out if I got it until the week of August 20th.

you need to have the first four lines of this song tattooed on your brain.

Careful the things you say,
Children will listen,
Careful the things you do,
Children will see.

And I ain't talking about curse words.

In revengereciprocation, I have made her a mix:

(My graphics aren't as nice as hers, but I did figure out how to add them to mp3 files (except for Alice's Theme, where it didn't seem to want to stick, so it's stuck on the graphic from the Resident Evil mix I got the song from))

So I made the mistake of reading a bunch of articles about reproductive rights and the contraception debate and then listening to the Little Mermaid soundtrack, and now my brain has busted out this bizarre feminist meta wherein Mermaid choosing to become Human = [bright young] Women [sick of swimmin'] choosing to become Sexually Active, but how in so doing they are expected to give up their voice in regards to the consequences.

Yeah, I don't know either. My brain hurts.

(Betcha on land, they understand, bet they don't reprimand their daughters.)

The Fairy's Lament
I fell to earth in a dew drop,
and found that I'd lost my way.
So ever since then,
I've tried to get home again,
and I pray that I will someday.

[I'm trying to find the YouTube equivalent for audio files and this is clearly not it due to the ad that's longer than the song, but a "Skip Ad" link comes up on the left in red part way through, so you don't have to watch the whole thing]
fuzzybluemonkeys: Meg living in captivity. (one girl revolution)
Rise Up With Fists by Jenny Lewis & The Watson Twins is my Emma song. It really captures her resistance to change and cynical view of the world.

Fairytale by Sara Bareilles and Brick By Boring Brick by Paramore are the warped fairy tale songs.

Lil Red Riding Hood by Sam Sham & the Pharoahs is exactly what it says on the tin. I'm assuming Ruby's gonna get an episode at some point, and they definitely seem to be going for the "You sure are looking good" vibe of the song with what we've seen of the character so far.

Rebel Prince by Rufus Wainwright. I suppose it's too much to hope for that they'll bust out a gay prince.

zip it

I'm also considering I Will Possess Your Heart by Death Cab for Cutie. Usually the main thing I pay attention to in this song is the "It's like a book elegantly bound, but in a language that you can't read just yet" bit, because, well, behold the book nerd. Also the rest of the lyrics are creepy and stalkery. But the creepy bits work for Regina literally possessing people's hearts, so.

So previously, I've talked about de-religionifying the "Good King Wenceslas" carol, but this year, I've decided it should stay religious. Particularly the bit that's all:

Therefore Christian men be sure,
Wealth or rank possessing,
Ye, who will now bless the poor,
Shall yourselves find blessing.

And then we staple it to the foreheads of all the supposed Christians in congress.

If you didn't think the original original super extra depressing lyrics of Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas were quite depressing enough, I've gone ahead and fixed that for you:

Have yourself a merry little Christmas, it may be your last,
Next year we may all be living in the past
Have yourself a merry little Christmas, and believe the lie,
[That] next year we won't all be living just to die.

No good times like the olden days, happy golden days of yore,
Faithful friends who were dear to us, will be near to us no more.

But at least we all will be together*, if the Fates allow,
Until then we'll have to muddle through somehow.
So have yourself a merry little Christmas now.

*in a mass grave

And for some reason, in my head, the movie is a "real" movie and not a SyFy Channel Original, so I'm casting Samuel L. Jackson and Michelle Rodriguez. Dana Davis from Heroes will play a character called Watches because she wears 12 watches on each arm so that she always has all 24 hours of the day going on at once (it's a WarThatNeverEnds**-type dystopia, so mortality is sort of an issue-- and Watches is obsessed with time as a result of growing up in that environment). I'm also killing off Jensen Ackles's character (again.) The more things change the more they stay the same!

I don't have a "plot" per se, but I assure you that the fictional employees of my imaginary production company have an excellent fictional health care package.

**This is the War That Doesn't End,
Yes it goes on and on my friend,
Some people started fightin' it not knowing what it was,
And they'll continue fighting it forever just because
This is the War That Doesn't End...

1. Bootsie is a festival of cuteness. (These boots are made for walking)

2. This vid inspired me to [re]watch Children of Men as my SciFi Saturday movie which helped wash out some of the bad aftertaste the book left behind. It also introduced me to my latest obsessional song. (We Won't Run)

3. Henry! Henry is Sanctuary's techno-wizard/resident geek [♥] and also a werewolf Hyper-Active Protean. (All Star)

4. The Invisible Man was cancelled long ago, but Bobby and Darien are living happily ever after, or as happily ever after as a paranoid goverment agent and a dude who can turn invisible and goes all evil from time to time can live. (All The Way)

5. Hannah from S Club 7 is on Primeval. Therefore, it is totally inevitable (and awesomely so) that there should be a Primeval fanvid set to S Club 7 music. (Don't Stop Movin')

6 [-1 for angst]. This one is not happy in terms of content (Batman doesn't do happy), but it is happy-making in that it is cool and well done. (Hurt)

So, "Oh, What A Beautiful Morning" was running through my head last night, and it occurred to me that there's an Oklahoma musical, but there isn't a New Jersey musical.. and if you know me at all, you know what's going to happen next...

New Jersey: The Musical! With it's hit song, "What's That Smell?"!

What's that smell?
Comin' from round the corner?
What's that smell?
Driftin' on the breeze?

That's the smell of Jersey!
Yeah *jazz hands*

1. Okay, so Bootsie is neither recently discovered nor a song, but he does have a song (and no list of Happy Things is complete without him, so it counts): These Boots Are Made For Walking by Nancy Sinatra.

2. I'm liking the Saab commercial music choices of late: New Way by Ana Diaz.

3. King of Anything by Sarah Bareilles. I love the song and then the video adds the silverware piano FTW.

4. Eet by Regina Spektor.

5. Little Lion Man by Mumford & Sons.

I entertained myself during my commute today by listening to the Power Rangers: The Movie soundtrack that I got via SwapTree because I am a dork.

Overall, I have to say I found it somewhat bizarre. It starts out with the theme song as you might expect, but it's all jazzed up, "Oooh! We're a movie now!" and there's a verse I don't remember about them only using their weapons for defense, which amused me and reminded me of those hysterical PSAs they'd have after the show, which amused me even more.
Then there's the Red Hot Chili Peppers' cover of "Higher Ground", which I like, but seemed sort of out of place? I realize the Red Hot Chili Peppers themselves probably had nothing to do with it, and it was all the record company, but that was sort of weird.
Less weird was the one song I remembered from the movie with the "Uh oh, we're in trouble, someone's (except it's actually something's) come along and burst our bubble.." I have a very distinct memory of that playing while the kids are running amok due to Ivan's purple ooze (PSA: Don't do drugs).
And then there was that "I've got the power!" song, that I've apparently never heard in it's entirety because wow, is it long.
Also long: the bizzaro dance mix cover of "Free Ride", and the most accurate description I can come up with for what they did to this song is that they Motown-ized it, and it is strange.
Somewhere in there was a rap re-mix of "Kung Fu Fighting" called "Kung Fu Dancing", a Van Halen song, and a They Might Be Giants song amongst others.
But the crowning glory, the pièce de résistance, the gem that makes it all worthwhile, has got to be the "Ayiyiyiyi Alpha Song" that was obviously written by people who watched Power Rangers and is hysterically awesome.
