Friends, maybe? I also enjoy things like the national and talking about grad school, and generation kill, which I have creepily noticed you like?

Haha, yeah... I do maybe like GK just a little bit, in that totally helpless "I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS, YES I DO" way.

So, sure thing! Those three things kinda, sorta, maybe dominate these parts at the moment. :D Welcome to the madness.

Friends? You sound like my RL favorite partner-in-crime.

The National need a shrine. By the way, what about "Fake Empire", "Wasp Nest" and "Start a War"? They sorted me out more than once and I sang them out loud with friends after parties that changed my life. The kind that have an afterparty in the park with red wine and underwear showing and forgotten scarves and initials carved on trees and urban furniture. But I digress.

Sure! (Sorry it took so long to reply. I'm just coming back from hiatus.)

By the way, what about "Fake Empire", "Wasp Nest" and "Start a War"?
Oh man, I LOVE all of those songs. "Fake Empire" is the perfect song to sing along to when you've stayed at the bar past closing with your best friend (who could be your worst mistake) and aren't ready to end the night yet.

Yes. To all of this, yes. <3

Welcome aboard!

Also, the new album? BROKE ME.

High Violet is very very good, but I still haven't put it on par with Boxer. Yet. I think it needs a few more listens through with no distractions. I'm still loving the shit out of "Lemonworld" and "Conversation 16", though.
verbynaverbyna on May 18th, 2010 01:53 pm (UTC)
I'm very partial so far to "Conversation 16" and "Bloodbuzz Ohio", although I'm sure that a month from now I'll be humming the whole album in my sleep. Boxer set the bar almost TOO high, not that I resent it.

Oh, have you seen the Blogotheque performances? That version of "Start a War" almost made my father weep and he's not even a fan of The National! :)) I first watched those projected in an orchard around midnight at a party, which made me instantly fall in love with the band. And with the host, but that's incidental. :))

I agree with this SO MUCH.

I haven't seen those performances. I'm definitely going to have to track them down when I get a moment this weekend. Man, if they can make non-fans almost weep, I NEED to see them.

I love that story. It's always incidental, isn't it? :)

RANDOM COMMENT BUT: I saw that the title of your latest fic is from Dark Time Sunshine, who I'VE TOTALLY DIGGING SO HARD RECENTLY, so. Yeah. :D

Right. That's it. I'm totally friending you. Like, right now.

Hey, pjvilar pointed me in the direction of your Inception recs, but I don't seem to have access to them. I like vodka and The National and hate Dick Cheney, and think everything you love is awesome, so friends, maybe?
hurricane a, the not-so-indie band of fandomchemfishee on July 9th, 2011 06:48 pm (UTC)
So sorry I haven't gotten to this sooner. Added you. :)

Also, that recs post encompasses the first two months or so of Inception fandom. The rest of the ones I would absolutely rec can be found here, including the one that remains my ultimate favorite.

Hello from a rather recent Generation Kill fangirl who'd love to prod and poke through your journal for every last inkling and pixel of Bravo Two that may exist here.

Friends?

Hello. I haven't been involved in GK fandom for quite a while now, but you're more than welcome to come on in and poke around.

Hey Chem,

*shuffles feet* A long time ago I cleaned out my flist because of issues and I'd totally understand if you don't care anymore, but I'd like to keep an eye on you again, in a non-stalkery, but loving way.
(I was reminded of this because me and Tan are going to Cardiff next week and I was looking at old photos and missed you;) I'm also following your Tumblr, I'm BeeLikeJ there as well. Just so you know.
hurricane a, the not-so-indie band of fandomchemfishee on January 30th, 2012 03:59 am (UTC)
Hey J,

I just saw and started following you on tumblr. I totally understand that these things happen. So, yeah. Come on in and pull up a chair and grab a mug of tea/coffee/other beverage of choice.

Also, I'm JEALOUS about the Cardiff trip. JEALOUS. Have fun! :)
