06:11 pm - The Fifth of Many Pimpings
Long-time readers may know that the original purpose for this journal, before it became my fandom journal, was to pimp Protein Angst. Well, after over four months of laziness, I tell you a story of why science is awesome. It involves potassium channels, T cells, and autoimmune disorders. And a surprise guest star.

Let the pimping commence!

hobviously has some great BSG icons, including a series I inspired with a screencap and a Shakespeare line.

the_royal_anna has a lovely post about Doctor Who and the relationship between the Doctor and Rose.

spectralbovine (hey, that's me!) has posted a metric fuckload of Canadian music at audiography, for those of you who missed it the first time.

valancy (a.k.a. Miss Fancy Valancy (tm starspentswell)) has a multifandom post with icon and fic recs. Warning, the post contains HPB SPOILERS, so if you haven't read the book, go directly to her journal and don't click the cut-tag.

persnicketiervm tells us about the time Kristen Bell sent her a birthday gift, complete with pictures.

matchboxslayer tells us about the time he met Kristen Bell and she didn't punch him in the face.

horsefacehannah would like to know, "What's the most violent PG/PG13 movie you can think of?"

wisteria_ has an updated Veronica Mars: A Love Letter.

In conclusion, Kevin Kline.

Artificial Joy Club - especially Sick and Beautiful and Skywriting

I also Love Striptease (and I'm sad cause I couldn't download the other one by that group)

But seriously the whole list was good, and was almost all unfamiliar to me.

Oh bollocks, "Jealous of Your Cigarette" is like the most popular song in the history of ever, apparently. Go to the audiography post; I've uploaded it TWICE. Get it while it's hot.

And "Striptease" does rule.

Yay for unfamiliar artists becoming familiar! *hugs*

I tried. It wouldn't let me. I didn't have the issue with any of the others on the list, but that one won't download for me.

Gah. YSI must have that song blocked. I changed the filename and uploaded. Now it will work. Go and enjoy.

Hawksley Workman is such a brilliant musician, it makes me want to weep. I think he's got magical ears. Seconds of hearing a song he's never heard before, he's playing it like he wrote the friggin' thing. All those years of being a studio musician before doing his own thing.

And he's an amazing performer in his own right, beyond the technical stuff. He owned the crowd the three times I saw him last summer. The crowd was putty in his hands.

The Future Language of Slaves is a must-listen song of his. Also, Smoke Baby. Really, I love all of Lover/Fighter.

Hawksley Rules at Life

(Link)
I couldn't really get into Lover/Fighter, at least not as much as I did when I jumped head first into Delicious Wolves. I should probably try again.

One thing that is both admirable and frustrating is that he isn't courting America. Which is fascinating because most non-American artists will do anything to break in America (hi, Robbie Williams!) but is irritating because I've never seen him live and that makes me cry.

Hawksley does rule at life. I swear, any day now, I will start worshipping him.

I was supposed to go buy Sufjan Stevens' Illinois tonight, but couldn't find it anywhere. But both Hawksley's the delicious wolves and for him and the girls were on sale. 10.99$ each! Canadian, even. So, I picked them both up. I haven't listened to either of them yet, but soon.

Most Canadian musicians end up not courting the US. It's just too hard a challenge, I think. Well, except Matt Good. I think he actively goes about not pursuing the US.

Also, you post at Twop, right? I'm Anais over there. But I haven't been by in weeks. I should see about that. *waves*

Hey there! I think we've talked about Hawksley over on TWoP as well! Hah, I love Hawksley evangelists. You will want to worship him when you listen to the other two albums, I love them both so much. Particularly the songs "Paper Shoes" and "Lethal and Young." I've had them for a few years and I still listen to them regularly. I love the music so much which is different for me because I'm usually a lyrics girl.

I read on TWoP today (but didn't want to comment since it was off topic and I hope spectralbovine is a bit less strict about topic-ness in his LJ since I'm using up comment space here) that you also bought Sarah Slean's Night Bugs. I love that cd too, I hope you enjoy it.

*out of breath*

Hey, that's the one with "Sweet Ones" on it! One of our a cappela groups here does that song, and I like it.

Also, this post looks like it's destined to get its comments condensed anyway, so off-topic away.
