Because apparently [livejournal.com profile] not_eurotic will be offering fanfic in his new Kickstarter campaign, I decided it is time to finish this epic masterpiece of Caustic/Twilight fanfic I starrted back in 2009.

Other people may or may not have helped with some of the epic plot and they know who they are!

Edward Is Gay For Caustic, Part 2


The dark oppressive grey clouds upon London's sky like a TV tuned to a dead channel back before we went all digital kept Edward from Sparkling. Indeed the only sparkle was that of his keen wit and astounding intelligence and humor, second only to his moody good looks as he brooded greatly upon his obsession.

Oh, but Caustic had fled! This was intolerable: it stabbed like the blades of the Venturi, like the fire of a thousand suns. He could not bear to be parted from his chosen!

He had traveled long and wide in search of his one true love and he was here now, in the city of London, and he had tracked down Caustic to this den of iniquity and idolatry; A wretched hive of scum and villainy and preposterous posturing, before him the Tate Modern spread like an in-depth study on space-time and the artist's depression and hatred of anti-colonialism expressed in the bold strokes of black crayon and menstrual blood.

Caustic, the man, the myth, the legend was here in search of inspiration - what now, to inspire him into even greater heights of artistry to wow generation upon generation like the true masters of the craft before him?

Speaking of before him - His eyes light up like a new morning upon ice as he sees it. her. She is large and edgy, blocky almost - All lines and no soft curves. There is no form, only function.

He approaches her - it - the beauty with no pronoun can ever apply: He touches, gently, over the corrugated metal. He knows he shouldn't, he knows this is wrong but he has to..

"HEY SOME DUDE IS HUMPING A DUMPSTER OUT BACK!"

The shout startles Edward out of his self-described malaise; He wonders, briefly. Could that be...?

Edward raced to the back of the museum like a lightning, greasier than an oil tanker. Before the brave London bobbies had a chance to arrest Caustic for public indecency and molesting the property of the City of London, Edward whisked his beloved away in a totally not sparkly at all movement that left everyone on the spot baffled and disgusted.

For Caustic, being whisked away was an experience not much akin to any actual whisking; no implements of metal nor plastic were involved, albeit the end result was that when he was unceremoniously deposited in a luxurious hotel room, he felt as if he'd had his innards not only whisked but beaten and stirred as well.

Promptly, he threw up on Edward's shoes.

"Oh my beloved don't fret!" Edward cried out dramatically, still not sparkling in the artificial light. "Come, come with me!"

Because this is a work of fiction, we urge the reader to please take a moment to suspend their disbelief that pure, virginal and chaste Edward would act so wanton. Bear with me guys, this is true art.

"I am so gay for you" Edward's voice was impassioned and resembled that of a donkey in heat. His eyes wide, he threw himself to the bed, amid the luxurious satin sheets that had been super glued in place to keep them from sliding off the manky hotel mattress that had previously housed a corpse that did not walk around.

"Take me!"

Caustic, eyes bleary and ears aching from the preposterous overuse of exclamation marks, eyed the creepy dude on the bed. Creepy dude who appeared to not to be breathing despite talking too much.

With a shrug, he dropped his pants. he'd been interrupted with the inspiring piece of art, might as well finish.

And that, dear reader, is how Edward decided he was not so gay after all and limped back to ass-end-of-nowhere to prey on teenage girls, and Caustic crossed necrophilia off his purity test list. That, and for once not being the one getting sodomized.

Teh End.

I have been thinking about this for a while now and this is what I have ocme up with, oin plenty of time before new years and panic buying into things I do not want :P

- Learn German (yes, I am recycling this one)

Because I go to germany so often, I should try to learn even the bleeding BASICS dammit. Current situation where I can't say anything intelligent or useful is not a good one.

- Adopt healthy behaviours

I eat too much crap and spenmd too much time sedentary to my liking. So the plan is to slowly but surely work on doing more healthy fun awesome things. Big part of this is to wish to gain some upper body strength - all the waffling about I do is great for my legs, but my arms are still woefully weak. Use mositurizer more often. Take care of myself kind of a thing.

- Go out more to things that are not clubs, gigs and festivals

This one should be ather self-evident. I get out of the house a lot more than I used to. But it is almosat always alla bout music. I keep clicking "maybe" on lots of awesome things on FB but do I ever go? Not really. and hwen I do go, it tends ot be pubs and stuff. This year I wnat to drag my ass out of the hose and hit a museum or two, maybe catch cirue du soleil in april - you know, stop limiting myself. Hell, go to more gigs in different genres for the matter.

- Read more

I still read a lot in fandom but I have not read books properly in a while. So I think in addittion to a genrealized read moar, I will endeavour to read the unread books in my flat asap.

- Write more

This year, i managed to win nanowrimo by the skin of my teeth. I want to do it again in 2012 and not fail horribly. I want to write more, full stop. I want to have at least one or two stories that i can say I wrote by the end of the year - short or not so short.

- Visit new places

I travel, sure, but I always go to the same places. in 2012 I would like to just - see new places. Go somewhere I've never been. Sure I wont be wintering in chile but I would like to see Belgium...

I think that about sums it up. These are the things I want to do and we shall see what happens.

So...

I have some vocal samples I need an opinion on. any of you guys willing to give them a listen?
arabwel: (Broccoli)
So as you may know, I love having my music providing device on shuffle quite often. I have if not a huge library, still a pretty big one with a lot of variety across genres and styles. This often causes me some WTFs, and the occasional hey that treally works should ot it down for DJing to other interesting eyebrow rasing reactrions.


Just now, my phone gave me these two songs one after another:






It may be just me, but to me? that WORKS. and it works HARD. And it made me go "wow that is scary"

You guys know by now that I am an old school conservationist and a genre purist. I get rabid when people misidentify music genres, but I nbever deny good music it's due. But then again, genres are fluid and subective things - on Discogs, Silence is Sexy, the album form which Sabrina comes from, is identified as "Electronic, pop" (with the substyles experimental and abstract) while Exit Ghost is identified as "Electronic" (with the sub syle ballad)

One of these songs, to me, is complex and layered and evokes different emotions with a rapid progression of rich imagery that engages the mind; rife with symbolism and multiple intrepretations and a rich, layered sound. One is less layered, but instead presents a deeply evocative story where a few words convey a wealth of not information, but of reflections of a specific world. it pulls you in and engages in a narrative level. And yet, in the fact that they evoke a deep reaction, they are the same. They bring out a reaction that is in the deeper, darker side - I hesitate to use the word "negative" but neither one of these songs paints a picture of hope and happiness now, do they?

What is also mportant, both artists seek innovation - EN in a scale larger than Faderhead, but still the drive to go far beyond the comfort zone is there. Do you really want me to nitpick specific influences and instrumentation and arrangement but quite frankly, I know I am not qualified and I know most of you would not care.

I hesitate to call Sabrina a "typical" EN song, as let's face it, it is very hard to say that a band that has spent thre past 30 years reinventing itself and its output could be typical anything, but Exit Ghost is an atypical faderhead track, as it is not a thumpy club style track with the express intent and purpose of getting people move their bodies on the dance floor. Nevertheless, it is still unmistablably a Faderhead track, and has the same qualities that ifentify the artist's other songs to me.

Remember me wafflinbg about genre? ah yes. Both of these songs are, to a lot of people, industrial. some would say one is and the other isn't. I personaly? Actually do fall into the latter category. to me, Einstürzende Neubauten is industrial. (amongst a lot of other things) Faderhead? is not. Post-industrial electronic music, yes, but not industrial. And guess what?

In the end, that doesn't really mean anythinbg. Because these are two good songs that work in different ways to evoke the same places in our hearts and heads, and the work together in a pretty nifty way. Doing it diferently dos not mean doing it wrong.

And now, I think I will go to sleep and when i wake up realise I sut wrote utter pointles drivel I no longer agree with, but for now, this is it.

Life!

Just took a look at the bands and venues. It looks like it will not be terribly complicated - only a few "ARGH WHY DO YOU CLASH?!" moments.... and alot of times when no one i am absolutely demanding to see is playing so I can waffle about and see where something random and shiny is going on. All in all, should be excellent!
