So, when [livejournal.com profile] anna_daae was up here last, she introduced me to some new music. Mainly, Postal Service and Cobra Starship. I already knew Cobra Starship from the Snakes on a Plane song, but that was all I knew them from.

Turns out their other music? Is pretty damn good. And Postal Service reminds me of Death Cab For Cutie, which is a very good thing. So I went and snagged two Cobra Starship albums and one Postal Service Album.

Here, sample some of their music. These are the songs that got me hooked.

Guilty Pleasures - Cobra Starship

Nothing Better - Postal Service

So, sort of in relation to my last post, I've realized why I never bother to keep up with [livejournal.com profile] fandomsecrets. Over half the 'secrets' posted, I don't see why they're secrets. I've been watching it for a week - because in the recent past there were two secrets posted that were directly relevant to my interests - and I find myself reacting mostly with 'why is this something that can't be admitted with a name attached?'. Which leads me to the only conclusion I can think of: a lot of people in fandom are douches, if so many people feel they can't admit to liking a pairing or disliking a show or not enjoying the work of a particular author or fangirling a particular RPer.

And that just makes me all the more thankful for my Flist, who mainly doesn't give a flying fuck what I like or don't like. (With a few small exceptions involving television shows.) And it's amazing, really, considering how massively huge my Flist is. But it is full of polite disagreement, and agreeing to disagree, and gentle teasing about more whacked out interests. As [livejournal.com profile] attilatehbun once pointed out: that is the secret to true, lasting friendship.

And! I have not forgotten about fics owed! They will be written! You'll just get surprise fics at some point in the near future!

I need to find clothes and take a bath, because I am being dragged to the pub this afternoon.
