children of dune - leto 1

this is not a true story


Let's say one bought a soldering iron this weekend--being totally hypothetical--and it only works with butane, and say one thinks (or one's immediate family and friends in a three city area) that maybe one needs to get one less--volatile.

...and one's sister refuses to help because of potential for death. Which is not only hypothetical but hypocritical and hey, a little insulting, don't you think?

You know. Should one need another one that isn't powered by small canisters of butane, what would one get?

Hypothetically. With links, if possible.

children of dune - leto 1

it was just to drive me crazy, wasn't it?

...how is it no one told me Meatloaf released a new album? Did no one understand the first tape--yes, tape, that plastic thing with brown stuff inside that could double as a garrote on a bad date?--the first tape I ever stole from anyone was Bat Out of Hell II?

Song of Madness (youtube link) from Hang Cool Teddy Bear--seriously!--I have no idea if I like this album. There's just something about massive balladic melodrama that does it for me. Meatloaf kind of transcends like/hate/wtf for me. When you find yourself sincerely singing the ten fucking minute version of Objects in the Rearview Mirror (youtube link), you kind of lose the ability to judge like, anything.

Also, Hugh Laurie--yes, Hugh Laurie--plays on the album or something?

...you have heard his cover of Celine Dion's It's All Coming Back to Me Now, right? I swear it's the sequel to I Will Do Anything for Love. I think that's the same castle!

I feel so conflicted. I went to get more Augustana and I ended up--here. With Meatloaf. This is so very confusing. I mean, can Augustana compete with like, a full symphony orchestra accompaniment to psuedo-Dracula!Beast watching his BelleMina-esque obsession in a hand mirror engage in somewhat lesbian antics in an oversized bed after what appears to be a really really enjoyable bath?

Did anyone else come out of watching that feeling like classic fairy tales knocked up classic literature and the offspring was raised by Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights before it grew up to be that video?

Right. Me either. Nor am I watching it right now.

ETA: [personal profile] raina linked to the history of It's All Coming Back to Me Now.

...I have no idea what to do with that.
