lemniscate: (; the decemberists)
okay. so. hi!

(i know i either owe you a proper entry updating what the hell i've been up to or continued silence, but you are getting neither at the moment, so here are icons.)

i am an utter sucker for a style of icons that may be overused, viz. something in an elegant font and then illegible serif or sans under it, so while i may not be entirely satisfied with these i didn't save editable copies (good job, self) so HERE YOU GO: 11  icons, being at least one per member of the decemberists, that come free with the assurance that yes, there really is some kind of message in the text, you'll just never make it out.

(most of them are stupid as hell. one of colin's is just lyrics from the tain because i couldn't get anything else to do the right kind of line breaks, and one of john's includes "should really stop asking carson for advice", and those are all i remember because i did these at 11pm.)

in case i haven't entirely dissuaded you, la. )

(more ~evidence~ to be added as i think of it)

okay. so. colin meloy. frontman/lead singer/songwriter/miscellaneous instruments for the decemberists, previous bands tarkio (which i am currently in love with) and happy cactus (according to the internet). this guy.



he writes lyrics and they are like this.

now, from this you might deduce, say, "oh, okay, that's why c talks about him all of the times," or maybe, if you're my dad, "what a huge dork", but i, with marika's aid (and by aid i mean listening to me and going "...okay..."), have delved further

see, there had to be an explanation as to why he can hit such stupid-ridiculous pitches and hold them, and also for why he's weird.  humans are more boring than that.  luckily, i found clues in his own songs! =D

a thesis. with pictures. )
lemniscate: (text:  attempts)
things i need to post for this to be a true art roundup: (links to where you can download) songs and one spoken-word piece, the collages on my books, a werewolf, hazards of love fanart, a snake, dead children (that would be the HoL), backstory for all of it, and whatever i'm forgetting at the moment.  also casey johnson.

things in this post: the songs.

this collection of posts may get somewhat long.

spoken-word:
a conversation between jenny mayhem and leslie anne levine

songs
'the dancing song' (work in progress, same 'verse -- compoundverse / colourverse -- as the song about your girlfriend destroying the world, takes place roughly during cataclysm and is part of the effort to write a concept album/rock opera/like i didn't have enough to do)
'i was meant for the stage' (the decemberists cover)
'i will follow you into the dark' (death cab for cutie, also known as the reason why the guitarboys and i are no longer Considering Working Together And Why The Hell Was That A Thing)
'kiss with a fist' (florence + the machine cover)
'new art for the people' (the indelicates, goddamn messy as its filename indicates)
'on the bus mall' (the decemberists cover, also current text theme of this journal and likely to be redone now that i've realised it works well with a really slow lead-in)
'sing' (the dresden dolls, debatable quality)
'the queen's rebuke' (in which c idolises shara worden a lot; hazards of love -- decemberists, that is -- cover)
'├║ltima esperanza' (the dresden dolls, because c wanted to sing it liek ~fluent speaker omg~ seeing as there was something about ms. palmer's pronunciation that bothered her, oo instead of ├║.)
lemniscate: (; musicverse (general))
there are a few missing but i'm not sure which they are, i'll sort it out later. (by which i mean save them for a future post.)

these are every icon i've made since i got roiben back and working, so since around... september? wow i make icons slowly. most of them were made either for marika or for myself. it kind of shows but oh well. <3

&contents;
+ the indelicates (15)
+ blood red shoes (12)
+ dr. horrible's sing-along blog (5)

i am not the content you wanted but a lot of icons )
