kosmikdawg has an icon. An adorable dancing-jiggling-pig icon.
My little sister and I just spent the last quarter hour laughing ourselves to tears on the floor while clutching our sides in pain from the sheer joy of that icon.
Oh, and she
*hugs and wishes all of you lots of laughs as well*
P.S. Sister: You lost the game, LJ people <3
P.P.S. -_-" Please feel free to ignore my little sister there. Though if you DO know about the game, then yes, apparently, you have lost. *sigh* My sister is stubborn.
"Heartless" originally sung by Kanye West as covered by Dia Frampton on The Voice: (so amazing, it blew my DAD away, which says a lot since he's not very into these sort of things)
Please click here, because I can't embed this one, but it's really SO good.
( Music! Who doesn't love music? :D )
In the mean time, I hope everyone is doing well. :) Hopefully, everyone's getting their daily dose of Vitamin D from the sun now that it's shining more consistently.
*hugs to you all*
Also, to share in the joy, please enjoy this spectacular cuteness:
Baby: "Mommy! Mommy! Look, I'm moving! I'm not moving but I'm moving!"
Mom: "Mmhmm... yes, dear..."
Anyway, HAPPY LUNAR NEW YEAR everyone! Or Chinese New Year, whichever way, politically correct or not. :) Therefore, things have been their normal crazy self except multiplied by maybe 14 (the length of time the New Year lasts... or was it 15?). Anyway, so it's hectic, but I hope everyone else is doing well and staying safe and warm with all the crazy weather that's been coming around.
To end this, my favorite New Year's song when I was little (and still my favorite now I believe):
Anyway, good night! (Or day if you're on the other side of the world.) ♥
And may all the rabbits jump happily. :D
I honestly don't know what to say, except thank you. Though honestly, I have no IDEA what to do with it. :) (Except I will quickly go looking for pretty icons and many people will probably be grateful that I can now edit my comments. XD)
PS: Ah... after I figure out what exactly I did to my browser/browsing history. *sigh* Technology + I=severe!FAIL... I only deleted a few cookies. :3 Hmm.
PPS: Dear icedteainthebag I apologize for the possibly random/incomprehensible PM I sent last night. I blame the awkward timing of my checking something on my profile and the lag between LJ notifications. ><" Please ignore, though yes, I am still very happy to be friends. XD
Speaking of which, hi to other new friends!
And that led me to this:
Which, as he placed in the description, "For the past 2 weeks, 60 pianos were installed all over the streets of NYC...in the parks, on the streets, in the plazas. The project, developed by British artist Luke Jerram, is called "Play Me, I'm Yours" and was presented in NYC by Sing for Hope. Living in this city can make you feel pretty isolated and small. But imagine walking down the street with thousands of people rushing by, cars honking, pigeons almost flying into you, and seeing a group of people gathered around a piano connecting with one another. And then walking a few more blocks and seeing the same thing again in a totally different environment. And then seeing it again, and again, a stage where the whole world is listening and willing to share. It was a brilliant experience, and I'm very grateful to have been a part of it. I hope you enjoy the video!"
The idea, of which, was developed by this person:
( Luke Jerram )
Just, my general reaction - OHMYGOSHSOAWESOME!!! :)
That said, has anyone on my f-list watched "The Sing-Off"? Because I mainlined the second season relatively recently and can't stop thinking about it. XD
EDIT: Of note, these events were held in the summer (of course). Precipitation (and actually, most environmental factors) don't mix well with pianos sadly. :) Anyway, music to all! And to all a good night! *hugs*
- Spindle's End, Robin McKinley
- Quote of the night (because it's one of the things I'm reading right now):
"The woman laughed again, but it was a laugh like the sudden knowledge of your own death, and many of the people who lay on the ground whimpered or cried out." - Robin McKinley, Spindle's End
- The Tony's are an AWESOME awards show.
- Has anyone read The Heart of Power: Heath and Politics in the Oval Office by David Blumenthal and James A. Morone? Reeeeally interesting. (Senator James Hamilton Lewis... I am laughing at this entire part. Really.)
- I love... lots of things right now. I love life. I love my family, and I love my friends. I think I need to remind myself of that. :) *hugs everyone*
- Though gmail apparently hates me at times. :3 Or maybe it's feuding with my computer?
Now, if I can only focus on things I need to get done. LOL! Good night (or day or somewhere in between).
EDIT because I have just noticed the ironies between my first and second point. XD
He had Grand Canyon! I was so excited, and I finally saw Mary in it. I rewatched several wonderful bsg episodes. I also rewatched Underworld the other day, X2:X-men United yesterday, and I began re-watching The Phantom of the Opera today. I am still utterly fascinated by that storyline, though a bit altered from the original Leroux version by Webber. I believe my favorite version will probably alway's be in Susan Kay's multi-perspective Phantom, her own version with both combined Leroux's and Webber's influences.
Two of my favorite scenes from the movie is above. (The choreography is utterly stunning.)
As for re-visiting great loves, my music collection is kind of getting a very strong workout, as well as re-reading beloved fics. The only thing I'm missing is a nice collection of books. I only have one with me at the moment, which I'm sort of afraid of finishing actually. It's a memoir, and it is quite fascinating.
Oh! I'm also watching a Chinese TVB drama series with one of my favorite Chinese actors in it. I absolutely adore most of his work. He's pretty incredible and nicely intense. And because I don't actually know how to embed correctly, the opening to one of my favorite dramas with him in it is the first vid above... (^^)"
EDIT: Uhmm... nevermind, embedding... I fail at it.
Oh, my nine year old sister wrote this poem and gave it to me. I thought that it was adorable and better than my own. (^^)"
You cannot buy love and happiness. You need to find love and happiness always .You sing to find love but you cannot find it you dance to get happiness but you cannot find it. You always need to remember that love and happiness comes from your heart because that was where did not look.
