Beatles LOVE opening night pics [03 Jul 2006|07:44pm]


Just a note to all of you Beatle fans.

This may be old news to a lot of you, but just thought you'd all want to know that there are some terrific pictures from the premiere of the Beatles show in Vegas up on my Beatles blog.  If you haven't seen them, they are great photos.  

It is so refreshing to see the entire Beatles extended family all together in one place (except for Sean).  I don't think that's ever happened before.  Anyhow, everyone looks awesome....especially Yoko (and her boobage) except for her crazy hat.

While you are at my blog, please do check it out, and look at some other content, there's lots to see, and read.  If there are any news you want me to add, please let me know.  I try to add news stories, links of interest, photos, video links, etc.  

Content is updated fresh daily for all of you rabid Beatle fans.
Check it out at: http://beatle.wordpress.com

So sorry to cross-post this everywhere.

And! A Request! [11 Aug 2005|07:44pm]

[ mood | crushed ]

So, I had a crush on the girl for a really long time. Like a year. And we were pretty close friends, and she didn't know about my crush until close to the end of this school year, when a mutual "friend" told her about it to exact revenge on something I'd done to offend her. She acted really weird for about a week (this could also be because she didn't know that I'm a lesbian) until I figured out what had happened and hastended to assure her that the girl who'd told her this was lying, or mistaken. She believed me (I think), but things haven't really been the same since.

I need songs to make me feel better. I doubt any songs are really going to fit the situation perfectly, but things in the general heartbroken / betrayed vein are good. Songs that make you cry are also favored. But please no screamo.

To the tune of... [19 Jun 2005|10:54pm]

My gosh it's been forever since I've posted here! Anyway - I have a situation. My friend and I are in an awkward situation. We're not mad at eachother or anything but she's really been upsetting me lately with some stuff she's done. Like dating a guy who she doesn't need to be with. He's using her for sex and other things and I try to tell her that she needs to end it with him but she just won't listen to me.
I need songs along the line of "hey he's not right/good for you" "you're my best friend and I love you to death but you're killing me" "i'm hating this" "i'll always be there for you" and any songs that relate. Any genre will do. Please help me with this. This is what I have so far -
Seventy times 7 by Brand New
My Best Friend by Weezer
Hannah Hold On by The Get Up Kids
It's Been Awhile by Staind
Until the Day I Die by Story of the Year
What we hate, we make by The Rocket Summer
You Fault by Plain White T's
Good Riddance by Green Day
How's it going to be by Third Eye Blind
Soco Amaretto Line - Brand New
Tribute - Tenacious D
Karate - Tenacious D
Bleed For You - Hidden in Plain View
Break Myself - Something Corporate
From California - The New Amsterdams
Science Fiction - Rufio

I have the two Tenacious D songs on there because we laugh our butts off when we listen to them so I figured I'd put some humor in it. Anyway - all help is appreciated and thank you SOOO much in advance!

I work at the beach in the summer and the time is drawing near. I was wondering if anyone can point me to some songs that have to do with the ocean, sand or the beach. That would be very helpful!

When I compile it, I'll list it here!

I'm new to this community and I usually make some pretty random mixes. Here's one that I made for my friend who thinks emo and indie are too whiny.  I wanted to change that with a mix that isn't too whiny.  So it's a little rougher than most of these indie mixes.  She's a big hippy so I left her a present at the end.

1.  Cursive - Some Red Handed Sleight of Hand

2.  The Dog and Everything - Hey Luv

3.  Rise Against - Blood to Bleed

4.  Frou Frou - Let Go

5.  Dillinger Four - Noble Stabbings!

6.  Modest Mouse - The View

7.  Motion City Soundtrack - The Future Freaks Me Out

8.  Bright Eyes - Something Vague

9.  Slick Shoes - Once Again

10.  Northstar - Taker Not A Giver

11.  The Postal Service - Sleeping In

12.  Coheed and Cambria - Delerium Trigger

13.  Death Cab for Cutie - Title and Registration

14.  Hot Water Music - Remedy

15.  Elliott Smith - Needle In the Hay

16.  Coldplay - Don't Panic

17.  Something Corporate - Bad Days

18.  Alkaline Trio - Take Lots With Alcohol

19.  The Shins - Caring Is Creepy

20.  Murder by Death - End of the L:ine

21.  Phish - The Oh Kee Pa Ceremony

Sorry it's pretty mainstream but I didn't want to give her anything that was too underground and, besides, I have more mixes to come.
