[baseball] sweet lou

fandom you really got me going

Apparently, I was at the beach all week? Well. It's better than any story I've got so--yes. I was at the beach. Eating watermelon.

Conversations with octopedingenue are always lovely, intelligent, hilarious, and dangerous things. Recently she has caused me to begin rewatching Princess Tutu and supported me furthering my fairy tale education through the recommendation of a series of modern retellings and all this flooding of my brain with stories so tapped into literary traditions while also plunging into new storytelling territory is sparking ideas and joy in that creative section of my brain I thought long dead. Quick, make it stop with...

MERCHANDISE THAT IS SORELY NEEDED IN THE KH FRANCHISE:

- Demyx covers, vols. 1-infinity. Demyx does classic rock. Demyx does 80s #1 hits. Demyx does Blur, Pulp, all Britpop everywhere. Demyx does all terrible/popular American pop songs from 1995 to the present. Demyx later goes on tour with Malkit Singh. (Okay, I jest. But, just rock out with a sitar and make me believe it's Demyx?)

- The Sora ROCK YOUR BODY exercise video.

- Bond of Flame charms. Necklace, bracelet, whatever. There is one for practically every other keyblade. I think I've even seen a sitar charm. Where is my Axel memorabilia, bitches?

- The Disney Ride: (How Do I Truly Know I Exist While I'm Screaming Down) THE NEVERENDING DROP FROM MEMORIES SKYSCRAPER O'DOOM ON NOBODY TRAIN.

It's also very likely that I am missing certain tv shows right about now and reallyreally want September and October to get here without actually being autumn of '06.

While I have you here I might as admit that me listening to classic rock radio character associating can only = terror &

The Doors - Light My Fire

I love it, really.
