In honor of my new LJ header...

... I am sharing a few songs. DL! Enjoy! Say something nice! ;-D

Here is the song whose lyrics I put in my header: "In the Sun" by Joseph Arthur. All his songs are totally about Jack/Sawyer. Yep. Even if they were written four years ago This song seems vaguely religious -- "May God's love be with you," in the chorus -- but ah, who cares? I prefer to believe it's about slashy manlove. Because isn't everything?

(But would the header look better without the lyrics? ... Do tell!)



Some classic New Order for philomel

Temptation - "Oh you've got green eyes, oh you've got blue eyes, oh you've got gray eyes, and I've never seen anyone quite like you before." LOVE.

Love Vigilantes - This is a remix, FYI, not the original album track.

Sunrise - off the Low-Life album. Dark and moody -- and surprisingly heavy on electric guitar!

Vanishing Point - off the Technique album.


And some more classic new wave/'80s nostalgia:

Always the Sun - The Stranglers. Nice low-key.

Oblivious - Aztec Camera. Poppy! Lovably adorable! You WILL love this song. (holds gun to your head)

Love My Way - The Psychedelic Furs - Ah, the smooth scrape of Richard Butler's voice.

(hugs to my music-lovin' flist!)

the new header is simply fantastic! =)
I'm checking your LJ for a long time: sorry for few comments but my english is not so good =P
hope I can read your fictions and understand them (it's not easy reading an english fan fiction searching the words in a vocabulary every 2-3 sentences....) by the way I can see your icons: I really like them!

Thanks so much!

And thanks for trying to read the stories, even if you don't understand them completely. That's dedication!

My icons are mostly by crystalkirk, mediocrechick, and crystal_lilly. Obviously, I like Jack and Sawyer a lot! ;-D

I love them! *drooling*
I like so much Dominic Monaghan but I think his character in LOST isn't so interesting... Jack and Sawyer are better characters: girls always love bad ass boys as Sawyer, but also love guys like Jack 'cause he's so cute and caring, he cries when he says "I love you" (I cried when Jack said his wife "I don't fixed you...You fixed me!")... So I think he's the man of dreams, of my dreams! LOL!
I have to say I like Jack-Sawyer as slash pairing too: unfortunately there aren't fictions about them (and about LOST in general) in italian language. the most are in english and it takes a lot of time for me to read them, understand them and so appreciate these fics!
Sure that I'll comment yours as soon as I read them =)

I agree, I like Dominic Monaghan, but not Charlie so much, anymore. They have made his character kind of ... anoying lately!

I do prefer Jack (the good, kind Doc) and Sawyer (the charming bad boy) so much more! You have to start bugging other Italians to write Jack-Sawyer slash! ;-D I imagine a lot of terms in slash fic aren't in your Italian-American dictionary!

Yeah, that's the big deal: the translation of some terms in american slang! sure I lost some important details *sigh* and slash fics have many important details!! but I do my best to understand them
definitely I have to start bugging italians to write J/S slash fics or maybe I have to write something by myself *giggle*
I've never write fics about LOST, only a few about LOTR (my obsession): that's a good reason to start, isn't it? =)

I'd love to friend you on my LJ: can I add you?

Someone needs to write a slash dictionary for non-English speakers. ;-D Yes, do try some J/S slash! You never know until you try.

Yes, please friend away (friends you back!)

I say leave it as is. Purty men, good song, what's not to like?

Yeah, aren't Joseph Arthur's brimming with slash potential? I've found myself listening to him while playing a slashy vid or fic in my head a few times.

Thanks! ;-D

Sooo slashy. And angsty. And thus, a favorite! Thanks again for all the lovely music. (wags tail like a puppy)

And I see you're using some new icons. Yay for paid accounts! ;-D

Thanks! ;-D

I have to stay away from LJ on Wed nites to avoid the East Coast chiming in about the ep. Most people use lj-cuts, but still, I hate to be spoiled. (Unless it's seeing upcoming pics of Jack & Sawyer -- go over to foxxcub's LJ if you haven't already. GUH!

Ohhh I love the new header!!! You did that? It's amazing!
I was staring at it for minutes....lol! And that picture where they are holding the bagage....it seems that they are holding hands....that would be very very cute! teehee!
And this quotes....are they from some song?

Ohhhh and I downloaded "Sweetness" by Jimmy Eat World!! It's very nice!!

*hugs*

Yeah, I did the header myself. I have some remedial Photoshop skills, but my version is like, 10 years old. No joke! so, thanks!

It does seem like they're holding hands. Sigh! We can squint, right, and then they are!

Glad you liked Jimmy! ;-D Intense power pop, huh?

Wheee! Thank you! :D

Loving the New Order songs! Picked up the Stranglers and Aztec Camera songs as well (hmm, I should probably grab the Furs one, since I only have that on cassette) and am downloading the Joseph Arthur right now.

*does the new music happy dance* Mwuah. <3

Yay! New music is the best. Hope you like the other tunes. I hadn't put all my New Order in my iTunes yet so I finally uploaded it all and am having a mini-revival.

And the "Chocolate" video was just on! ;-D Cool beans.

Listening to "In the Sun" now, second time through. Normally, I'd be put off by the chorus. But it contains a quiet, open sincerity, so it doesn't come off as didactic. And the entire song is so gorgeous, the "god" stuff isn't so bad at all. ;) Sho pretty. Thank you.

Isn't it a gorgeous song? (loves it!)

And all his lyrics just make me think of slash ... dunno why! ;-D If you want more oof his music, let me know.

Some of my fave bands get a little religious now and then (or at least they used to) - like U2 and Simple Minds - so it's OK with me.

Exactly. U2 is one of my favorites. But they don't really preach, so they're treatment of religious lyrics seems to take on a broader feel, like they're opening things up instead of keeping ideas and emotions cloistered (if that makes sense).

I would love to hear more of Joseph's music, if you have time. But no rush, whatsoever. I've got a lot of new tunes to revel in right now.

And if there's anything more you'd want to hear, let me know. :)

I just uploaded some Joseph Arhthur tunes for crystalkirk but I didn't keep all the links :-( Here's one for "Eyes on My Back."

I can upload some more soon.

Eek, I have bad timing. Thank you! Downloading it now. Mwuah.
