Musical Consolidation

Well, I had a bout of insomnia, and figured perhaps we could use it for something useful and entertaining. Here's an up to date consolidation of the Character Theme Songs thread, sorted alphabetically rather than chronologically because I'm terribly anal when I can't sleep.

Yes, distressingly organized of you.
Thaddeus Grey 18 years ago
Holy shit O_o

Nice work

Edit: Don't think Talon is an Across the Universe type though :X. That would be Thaddeus
Alec Devereaux 18 years ago
Ah...see what happens when you chain html in the wee hours of the morning? You miss a " and start believing in the Lighter Side of Talon when checking for errors. Next Ellis will be dressing in pink and Addison will be the poster child for masculinity. Guess maybe it is time to try for sleep again. :P

*hides her face*

Oh Good Gravey, Alec! You had to put in all of them? I mean Right Said Fred was a joke, no really.

*blushes from breasts to ears.*

I swear some people can't take a joke...*grumbles*
Alfarinn 18 years ago
Nice work, I always did math problems when I couldn't sleep..or played EQ. I hate math

So do you organize other stuff while tired? I have this horribly large poser file...
Shay 18 years ago
And my boss thinks I'm anal about organization...
Good show!
Winter 18 years ago
heh... my song is linking to "Bad Touch" by blood hound gang... also a favorite of mine... and it fits too! weeeeeeeeeeee
Alec Devereaux 18 years ago
I guess I go on autopilot and just start putting things away in different ways. Over the years I've gotten better at doing it in a useful way. One particularly bad week during my second year of college I'd color coded everything in my room, so there were these nice, large blocks of color...but within those blocks would be books, cds, pictures, artwork and folded clothing. Not particularly useful, but that was also my worst bout ever. Since then, I've been able to keep things pretty useful and have usually only gone at most with 2 nights sleepless. :P

Ah, got you fixed up too, Winter. Another dangling " was the culprit.
Amberelle DeEspionne 18 years ago
wow insomnia seriously sucks it sounds like... I have zero problems sleeping, when I'm tired that's it. Hell I can sleep standing up...
Shay 18 years ago

I've fallen asleep with my eyes open...truly!

I learned how to sleep on horseback a looong time ago.

My pinnacle was the time I tried to set my car on 'autofollow' while driving down to Louisiana a few years ago, so I could nap on the way. :P That was when my last waking braincell told me it was time to find a hotel. 21 hours of driving FTW!

O_O Aishe

I organize things while bored so if its within reach and I have nothing better to do it will get stacked, ordered and rearranged. I used to do this to my room in the middle of the night as a teenager. I've got to say moving a Queen sized bed around by yourself is an interesting challenge.

I like the colour coding, Alec, I bet it was cool to look at. Did you get a picture before every day life messed it up?

Hehe Back in my Eq days i used to stay up 36 hours at a time. One time i fell asleep in PoNightmare in an exp group, I think i woke up like an hour later at the graveyard and decided to log out =P.

Through my latest job I learned how to fall asleep in the little ass cabs in dump trucks, ya kinda wake up with a crink in your neck tho /sigh such hardships =/

Great job with the Song List =)

I also like to rearrange furniture when I'm feeling restless. Although with the layout of our condo now, it's tough... these rooms were really meant to have certain things in certain places.

My most recent invention has been moving our computers out into the dining room, since we don't actually have a dining room table. Now I can cook and game within ten feet of each other. How convenient!

Go or Go Ahead by Rufus Wainwright

(for Simon)
Alfarinn 18 years ago
The perks of living in the basement no windows to mess up the rearranging.

It seems that I don't have a picture of it anymore...but I'll check with some of my friends. I know a couple got was more bizarre than neat, though. It was like looking at the aftermath of someone else's psychoses and being shocked by it, then finding out that YOU'RE the nutter. Of course, 3.5 hours over 8 days will do that. I don't recommend it.

The worst I've witnessed personally was 198 hours consecutive. I'm SO glad that wasn't me. At least my big drag was divided up a bit. I can't imagine folks that live like that all the time...boggles the mind.

Now I'm down to a short stint at the turn of the seasons and that's about it. Really can't complain much.

Alec Devereaux 18 years ago
Ok, added Go or Go Ahead...just need Walking Dead for Chryseis and we're set...and can start adding all sorts of new goodness.

Addison's Sims2 layout for floor plans was a really good one - that'll probably be my next sleepless project. Good show, man!
Alec Devereaux 18 years ago
Added Mayonaise, Blood Red Tears and Sweet Dreams...was thinking about Amber for Aflarinn to Thaddeus, but still considering. Gimme the Prize was going to go to the Wolf, but BRT totally trumps it. Thinking about Local God for Nova and Jan...but I can't sort out who is singing to who!

It sounds like Ginnie might start singing Hey Pretty to Alec soon, too...if she doesn't kill him for calling Harrison Ford "that guy from K-19," that is. :O

Not as productive as the last bout, but also had City of Villains to distract me. :P
Thaddeus Grey 18 years ago
I love Hey Pretty and had actually thought of that for Nova for the dreamlike quality of the song and the assertiveness of it (Nova is a dreamwalker)..and the whole take a ride thing. I've never heard Local God but the lyrics are funny .
