Woot! Hellllllllooooooooo pppppppppppppppppppplllllllllllsssssssss! *waves- okay so more like flails insanely because she's in a VERY weird mood*

Despite appearances this post is incredibly low on the fandom levels, lol

First, some fandom stuffage. "Last night I had the strangest dream, I'd never dreamed before," umm, no... Last night I finished my [livejournal.com profile] spring_with_xan fic! Well, the main one, I'd had a small little PWP squirrelled away just in case, now, I got both. :P
Also, I bit the bullet and signed up for the [livejournal.com profile] deancasbigbang, just the mini-Bang, but still. Thanks for the input and support guys. I've even had an idea, I had this kinda disturbing post 5x22 fic, Dean's a bit, umm, dark, not evil or anything... think Sammy towards the end of "Mystery Spot". Anyway, I realized that I could actually flush it out a LOT more than I was originally planning, and it would work nicely. I think I might even be able to get it close if not over the 10,000 word mark. *chews lip* Whatever, I'm giving it a shot!
Of course, I also signed up for CasFest because, dude, exchange fic makes me surprisingly happy, lol.

And now for the main part of this post, NO it's not chocked full of Supernatural goodness, more a slight 6 degrees of SPN kinda thing. See, I was signing up for CasFest and they wanted prompts, now I'm lousy at prompts, so I went rummaging through my music collection. Hey, what can I say, sometimes I am a walking cliche, lol. Anyway, I wound up listening to some of my old Excentrics and Getaway Car (two of my favourite bands ever, Getaway Car was the spawn of Excentrics when they split up), and yeah unknown indie bands from DC not likely to be easy to provide lyrics for, right. So I did a quick web search and about had a coronary when I found there were actually places that had their lyrics- floored doesn't begin to cover it, lol.
Now, I know this will come as a shock, but I get picky about how lyrics look, if they are comfortable to read, etc... so I clicked on a couple links, then a couple more. And one of these blessed links had a set of vids from one of the guys' last performances. Not just vids- YouTube vids. So yeah, this led to a helluva lot more clicking and much annoyiing squeeing on Twitter and an unremorseful spamming of Facebook (uber apologies to [livejournal.com profile] half_vulcan who suffered the brunt of my insanity)- oh and LOTS of downloads, lol. See, it seems the lead singer of those groups is still doing some random gigs, so yeah freakout. Then- yes, this story continues- the next day I set about ripping the sound from the vids, but one little vid hadn't dl'd properly, so I went back to YouTube, looked up the song and discovered a different uploader than the ones I'd been skulking around the day before. And this person kept referencing Todd's 40x40 project and these vids were remarkable NEW, like March of 2010 type new. So in the midst of my hyperventilation I manage to do a search on Todd... and I found LOVE. Not only is he still around, but this 40x40 project is him releasing one new/refurbed origiinal song every week for the 40 weeks before his 40th birthday (which is the second week of July for those of you interested, and no, I didn't have to look it up- some things you remember--- random scary thought: I've known him, like actually known him, since before either of us were legal to drink- though I doubt he'd remember me, it's been @ 10 years or so since I saw him last, lol). Yeah, but wait it gets better, see he's offering each song as a FREE download *flails* so yeah I just dl'd 33 heavenly, beautiful and absolutely miraculous songs. *beams cheesily* Anyway, he's releasing them on Cd, too, so when it's all said and done I'm gonna buy it/them because he's Todd and I can't not. He, well, his music makes me unreasonably happy.

Oh, if anyone is brave/insane/curious enough to see what I'm talking about there's one of those nifty music players on the MySpace page, may I suggest Unlucky Stars, Blood Red, or Imperfect Heart, oh 45's really awesome, too... assuming you ppl actually know what a 45 is, lol, and Too Late Tonight... I'll stop now. Really. See, I'm pressing enter. Look. See. I am. Damn you, I said look!
