This last week is a polar opposite of the awesome week I had before. You have to keep a solid head when you feel your worst, you know? I listen to music when I'm at work and lately my tastes in music have been all over the place.
I like a lot of Folk music: Mumford and Sons, The Lumineers, and I recently got into a band called Passenger. I think that's a band or it might be one guy, I don't know. I was listening to the album "All the Little Lights" in my car yesterday and I feel more inspired about my fics and my novel than ever. I'll listen to it again while I'm out shopping today, so when I get back I can start up work again hehe.
I also like J-Pop. Japanese pop music, yes. Haha, it's my guilty pleasure. I absolutely love Kyary Pamyu Pamyu. Her music, her costumes, just everything about her is awesome! I wish I could pull off outfits like that but I'd lose my balance in some of those shoes haha. Her song "Kimi ni 100 Percent" was used as the theme song of Crayon Shin-Chan's recent season (Japan, of course) and it's a good song. It's also the ringtone on my phone haha. Roughly translated, it means "100% for You" or "You get 100%" depending on how well your Japanese is (mine is terrible lol) but the song had my thinking about my characters, Lil and Angie. I'll be working on an original work starring those two very soon and I hope, when I start drawing, to do a comic series about them. That last one, sadly, won't happen for a good long while so don't look too forward to that.
My absolute favorite genre of music is Swing music. When I say that, I mean recent music inspired by music from the 30's and 40's. My favorite band is Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and I went to one of their shows back in November. Can you saw picture with the lead singer, a t-shirt, and an autographed poster! Because I can! I'll post pictures of all three of those eventually lol.
But I suppose, one must take the good and the bad together. I recently updated both of my current project fics so take a gander at those for your viewing pleasure: The newest chapter of Reaver's Servants is up and ready to go along with the latest update to "One Big Aperture Family."
So, go read those while I get dressed and blast my folk music, J-Pop, and Swing music in the car to go shopping.
