Open up the old iWhatnot and get cracking. )

Speaking of iTunes and listening, Audible is running a promotion where you can download a free audiobook at audible.com/american for a limited time. You have to sign up for membership, but you can cancel after the trial so as not to be charged. I don't know if I'll do it yet, but I know a lot of y'all enjoy books on tape, and maybe you'd like to snag one.

I want to start a meme, inspired by [livejournal.com profile] jane_hidell. THIS IS HOW I AM GOING TO START THIS MEME.

Pick a fandom that you participated in, perhaps in your wide-eyed youth *cough*college*cough* and share 3 of the gems of plotlines that you came up with for fanfics.

For the Smallville and Gundam Wing fandoms, I wrote the following pieces of crap: )

1) Comment to this and I will give you three people.
2) Post this meme with your answers.
3) Provide pictures and the names of the three people I give you.
4) Label which you would shag, marry, and throw off a cliff.


I have to choose between Jack Bauer, Jon Stewart, and Daniel Craig. )

Last year I had a great fandom retrospective meme, but since my LJ got wiped, I can't find it. Here's a new one! Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] falafel_musings, who I found by Googling "fandom meme 2008."

Fandom Meme Questions )

And now here's some more personal (and maybe less exciting) 2008 Retrospective Questions, stolen from [livejournal.com profile] muhsilisk.

The things I did in 2008, and the things 2008 did to me. )

BAI 2008. NOW MAKE WAY FOR OBAMATIMES.

This is the list of the top 100 grossing movies of all time. Bold what you've seen.

I see a lot of crappy blockbusters. )

Here's a meme. I've never started a meme before! Is this how you do it? THIS IS HOW I AM DOING IT.

Try to write all the different categories of fanfic (angst, fluff, UST, bromance...can you think of others?) in 10 words or less.

I did it. Can you? )


Plz to be joining me in haiku-like exercises?

The rules: Put your MP3 player on shuffle, and write down the first line of the first twenty songs. Post the poem that results. The first line of the twenty-first is the title.

Oslo in the Summertime

Spare me the suspense
You are my sweetest downfall
Mary, when you're loved like you are
Alone at last, just nostalgia and I
Aching to pupate.

Does anybody here remember Vera Lynn?
Something suddenly all clear
You're keeping in step
Thought I'd cry for you forever
Hope I don't make you mad.

Weird fishez
Impossible Germany, unlikely Japan
I'm not doing fine
Umae koto konnichiwa korri oto dakai
Every time I look in the mirror.

Hey you, out there in the cold
I chronicled the days you made me want to live
So impressed with all you do
So long my friend
It's bugging me, grating me

RULES:
1. Put your iTunes, Windows Media Player, etc. on shuffle.
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
3. YOU MUST WRITE THAT SONG NAME DOWN NO MATTER HOW SILLY IT SOUNDS.

The Big Read reckons that the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books they've printed. Well let's see.

1) Look at the list and underline those you have read.
2) Italicize those you intend to read.
3) Bold the books you LOVE.
4) Reprint this list in your own LJ so we can try and track down these people who've only read 6 and force books upon them

Just call me an east-coast ivory tower elitist. )
