Remember back in the day, when, if you didn't know the answer to a question and your friends didn't know it either, you just...never got the answer? Thanks to the wonders of wikipedia and teh intranets, those days are few and far between now...but not gone forever.

I am a huge fan of EDM/clubbing, and I have a ginormous collection of promo mix CDs by various DJs acquired in about six or seven countries. But the thing about promos mixes is that they tend not to list the individual tracks used in the mix. One of my favorite CDs is a 2005 mix with an awesome closer that mixes Amazing Track A with Amazing Track B. Thanks to google-fuing some lyrics, I was able to determine that Amazing Track B was some version of 2Raumwohnung's "Sex Secret." When youtube got big a few years ago, I was able to further narrow it down to this Moguai mix. But the lyrics to Amazing Track A are buried too far down in the mix, and it has eluded me for close to half a decade.

Incidentally, my newest fandom is Michelle Phan, who does makeup tutorials on youtube. I have freaked out no less than two friends within the past week by commenting on how good they look--which I never do. Turns out they weren't wearing makeup on those occassions, which should give you an idea about my attitude toward cosmetics in general. (I wasn't trying to be snide: I had no idea they weren't wearing makeup. I just unconsciously think people look better without it.) Still, it's fascinating to see how scientific makeup fans get about the whole thing, and Phan has a really melodious voice and wicked taste in music to boot.

Including Amazing Track A. OMG! After four years, I finally know what it is. It is Another Chance by a DJ set called Late Night Alumni. And I am pretty damn sure I have seen their albums at Parallax Records downtown. This has made my day.

That will be all.

Scene: It is 12:48 am. Ma soeur, mon pere, and moi are all sitting quietly in the living room, reading books. )

We then had a long discussion about Highlander: The Series, which I'm too tired to transcribe.

That will be all.

ETA: This transcription omits the line, "We still have to watch the He-Man Christmas Special," because I don't remember at which point ma soeur uttered it.

...because I would have known NOT TO WASTE MY MONEY ON THAT PIECE OF CRAP.

Yes, I am extremely bitter, and no, I don't feel like shutting up about it yet.

Ah, THE CRAPTITUDE. IT BURNS.

That will be all.

I wonder if it's too late to get my money back. Because I really, really want it back.

...I haven't been (and will not be) reading ye olde flist until after Book 7 comes out, because I will not be spoiled.

No matter how badly I want to be. And [livejournal.com profile] metal_dog5 can attest to my anguish over this.

That will be all.

This time on Chinese fansubbers. I\'m particularly enamoured of the author\'s amazement at the amount of time the groups put into the subbing and that they--get ready for this--do it for (gasp) free! Other bits (like the hierarchies and rationalizations) should be old hat to anyone who\'s been online since the days of ratio mp3 sites.

That will be all.
