...if, hypothetically, ryan were to suddenly reveal the results of his piano lessons (which he mentioned he was taking, years ago in interviews), what do you think he might like to play that brendon could walk in on and see? atm i'm leaning toward this. anyone who's seen the truman show will appreciate.

link me to your youtube choices? doesn't have to be classical, but i'm thinking something gentle and romantic. btw, chapter 1 of pccf is underway and i maybe kind of love it a lot. \o/

before i go, a few recs, which i never bother with unless i don't think they've been publicized as much as they deserve.

recs, random stuff about fic philosophy, and more of my youtube madness. )

happy friday!

too lazy to write a blog, so i made you all a videoblog.  complete with bad piano playing (incl a very rough preview of an "arrangement" i'm writing for FOB's "get busy living...").  also i show off pete, do a willy wonka impression, and yell at billy corgan.  and i ask for opinions on my hair.  the end.



also, here, a teaser for #5.


"This is what they all warned me about, isn't it?"
 
He smiles wider, draping an arm across his face to block out the light.  "Nah.  I went easy on you."
 
Brendon chuckles, his throat dry and hoarse.  "I like you."


i like him too, bden. XD

ALSO, [livejournal.com profile] ryden_fan  is my new best friend because she made me THIS, which is one of my favourite clips from any interview ever, as well as a QUOTE from the walkie i wrote this summer. \o/!!!

chapter 12, aka "ryro becomes ryho" (god help us), is nearly done.  no more teasers, but did i already mention the chapter includes the line "i kissed your boyfriend and i'm not sorry"?  bahaha.  it's so lame and i love it.  this chapter followed the outline about 20%.  the rest is ginni's influence. :P

i've made it my latest mission to learn "tonight, tonight" on the piano because it's so beautiful i get chills whenever i hear panic's version.  i'm trying to learn off the studio version though b/c it'll be easier to hear individual notes, but i'm having a really hard time because billy corgan's voice makes me want to die.  too bad he's pretty.  (is?  was?  maybe he got ugly.  or died.  i don't know nearly as much about modern music history as i feel i should.  but it seems to be my experience that the pretty ones tend to either get ugly or die.)

too big for youtube!  too big for myspace!  coming to you now from the ghetto caverns of yousendit, i present...

medley of loserdom: colin dicking around on the piano.

for [livejournal.com profile] ginsatonic, who said, "videotape it. now." i am astonished i managed to stretch this crap to 15 min.  jesus.  in my defense, i've never actually taken the time to learn any of these songs, so my lame-ass improvisation is about as pro as i'm gonna be here.

also, courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] schulershortone, this is the greatest thing ever. watch it to the end, it just keeps getting funnier.  so see, i'm not crazy!  just stupid for not noticing sooner.  mychem is way more obvious about it than the others.

i wish i had more to offer you from chapter 12; i've just been brainstorming a lot.  it's in my head, i swear!  i can guarantee you the following line will make its way in: "i kissed your boyfriend and i'm not sorry."  spencer's also threatening to yell out, "don't even think about having sex in our drinking water!" so who knows. XD  spencer's a jerkface.  they should TOTALLY have sex under the waterfall, y/mfy?  i mean WHAT ELSE ARE WATERFALLS FOR, FERREALZ??

1. you guys ask awesome questions! :D  and i love how none of you chose to go anon.  that says something about how open and comfortable we are with each other, and that's awesome.  *smishes you all*

2. wtf is up with everyone being all "i really like your voice!"  ...who have you guys been listening to to make you think i have a good voice?  like, billy corgan?  LOL.  that song was so, so, so not in my key at ALL.  you're all sweet though. :P

3. i was in the car this morning listening to rocket summer (i'm having a total bryce renaissance lately), and i started crying during "do you feel."  for the first time in like, a thousand times i've heard that song?  it was (oh wow this sounds cliche and lame) like he was speaking directly to me.  like we were sitting down and having a conversation and he was calling me out.  i just.  wow.  it's been awhile since a song has done that to me.  it was amazing.

3b. in case you haven't seen my twitter... well, the latest update still makes me giggle. :P  (i would advise, though, maybe not getting so into the habit that you end up doing it at a concert. XD)  (have, THE.  haBITS.  had YOUOOO-OOUU-UUUU.  sorry, idk, idk.)

3c. before i go looking or trying to learn it myself by ear (or spend $500 on software that will isolate the piano part on the track so i can learn it easily :P), if anyone should happen to run across sheet music (even if it's shit somebody wrote by hand and scanned) or a youtube tutorial for "story" or "around the clock," i'd love you forever.  those are the two i really want to learn, and i can't find stuff for them anywhere.

4. BECCA.  COBRA STARSHIP.  THAT'S ALL I'M GONNA SAY.  AAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH.  (watch her leave comments defending herself now.)  oh, but if you have any recs for good gabe/alex(suarez) fic, please leave them in the comments.  she apparently needs them like oxygen.

5. HOW HAS PHANTOM PLANET SURPASSED PANIC AS WEIRDEST BAND EVER.  JUST.  HOW.  now i know what darren meant when he said (to ME, HE SAID IT TO ME AFTER I TOOK A PICTURE WITH THEM AND WAS TELLING THEM HOW MUCH I LOVE THEIR BLOGS XD) that jeff had some awesome blogs coming.

6. I SEE ALL TIME LOW TONIGHT!!!!!!!!  saekjnhkfhaieh4rka3jh4;aiosg

7. chapter 8 should be up possibly today, definitely by tomorrow.  so there. :D

LOOK, LOOK WHAT SHE GOT ME.  LOOK HOW MUCH BECCA LOVES ME.  OMFG.  LOVES.  ME.  NOT EVEN CUTTING.   DARREN/SAM OTP. XDDDDDDDD


ETA: becca finds the best things ever.  EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(that's becoming a habit lately. :P)

The problem with LJ: we all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other. So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away. Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you!

comment anonymously, obv.  unless you WANT to be known.

(pwf is being written as we speak -- slowly, but still.  i used passive voice b/c i'm so uninspired it doesn't really feel like i'm writing it.  sigh.  but i'm trying.)

(meanwhile i sort-of learned rocket summer's "so much love" and there is now a video of me attempting to play it very badly (i cannot sing or pick an octave to save my life; it's painful to witness).  but hey, it's entertaining. :P)
