2. Is this a good dancing song?: Not at all.  Its quite melancholy. 
3. Have you seen this band live?: No, and I wonder how they'd be in person.  Their music is really great for moody, angry nights but I wonder how the concert atmosphere would be.

Song 3: Lucinda Wiliams - Steal Your Love
1. Does anyone in this band have a beard?: Not sure about her backup band members, but she certainly doesn't have one.
2. Do you like this song?: Yeah, big time.  All of her songs are great, but they're so emotional, so I've got to be in a mood where I can take it.  Lots of her songs cut me really closely, so...yeah.
3. Are there any girls in this band?: As far as I know, Lucinda really IS the band, so  yes.

Song 4: A- Team Theme

Song 5: Depeche Mode - A Question of Time
1. Does this song make you cry?: No, it makes me want to dance, or do my lil turn on the catwalk.
2. Do you have the CD this song is on?: Yes.  Depeche Mode rocks my face off.
3. One memory with this song: No specific memories, really, other than relaxing on my long metro commutes.

Song 6: Riga Girls - The Weepies
1. Does this song remind you of a boy?: Not really.  Its more of a song about NOT having someone. 
2. Have you ever heard this song live?: No, but I'd LOVE to see this band live. 
3. What is the first line of this song?: Are your friends really your friends? Are you still waiting for the end of the day?

Song 7: Superstar -  Jamelia  (Queer Eye for the Straight Guy OST)
1. What is the chorus?: "I don't know what  it is that makes me feel like this, I don't know who you are, but you must be some kind of Superstar, cause you got all eyes on you no matter where you are..."
2. Does this song make you want to destroy things?: No, but it makes me want to shake my ass on the dance floor.

Song 8: What'll I Do - Nat King Cole
1. Did you pirate this song?: Yep I did.
2. Who told you about this band?: Whoever doesn't know about Nat King Cole needs to come to see me personally.
3. Is this song good for moshing?: LMAO.  Its an old standard, more for slow dancing.  I could see some metal band doing a remake of it, strangely...

Song 9: Lucinda Williams - Everything Has Changed
1. How long have you liked this band?: Several  years now.  She's great.
2. Is this song about a girl?:  Anyone can feel the way she does in this song; her songs about isolation and loneliness are universal.

Song 10: Come Undone - Duran Duran

2. Does this remind you of anyone?: Not really. Its just a great song.
3. What is the last line of this song?:  Who do you need...who do you love...when you come undone...?

Song 11: BT - Movement in Still Life
1. How did you discover this song?: Girlfriend of mine had this CD in college; once I started listening to, I couldn't stop.  Wow, its great.
2. Is this a good dancing song?: BT is one of the pioneers of trance music/modern electronica.  So, it goes without saying that its made for dancing.  Also, one of the lyrics reads: "Dance to the beat, shuffle my feet!" =^)
3. Have you seen this band live?: Sadly, no. I'd love to, though.  He actually grew up in a town 20 mins away from where I live now!

Song 12: Maroon 5 - If I Never See Your Face Again
1. The hottest member of this band is: Probably the lead singer; people seem to think of him as a God of Sex, but to me, he's just ok.

Song 16: U2 - One

2. Have you ever heard this song live?: Yes, GOD it ruled.  I got to see them live at the Verizon Center. *squees remembering*
3. What is the first line of this song?: Is it getting better..or do you feel the same?

my long metro commutes

Oh, I can relate. Lord, can I. I'm actually reloading my iPod so I don't go mental on mine right now.

Yeah, you all are in Waldorf, right? Or is it College Park? Yeah, I'm in Silver Spring and have to commute to Chevy Chase (basically, right on the DC/MD border).

It is eroding my soul.

OT: Your boy James Storm was looking mahyteh fine on this weeks Impact. RAWR.

College Park now, yes. It's not too bad on the weekdays - an hour and fifteen minutes from my apartment complex to McPhersen Square downtown, but Saturdays coming home? Gah. Nearly two hours thanks to the once-every-hour bus schedules that Metro runs on weekends. Drives me batshit. When we lived in MA, I had a five-minute drive to work. However, I make three times more now than I did then, so I can't complain.

Oh and wasn't he just? He's hotter than hades on any given day, but when he's all pissy snarly mad? Me = puddle of goo from teh_hawt.

Heh, that's pretty cool; I live about half an hour from CP. And oh fun on the Metro...I've got about an hour and a half plus commute myself. It's starting to wear on me too.

Yeah, angry!James is awesome. I dunno about you, but IMHO, the TNA product seems to be improving.

Geez, we ought to get together sometime, being so close. The three of us (including [livejournal.com profile] xreal_facex) could have a very happy fangirling time.

Angry!James - hottest thing ever. Maybe even hotter than Angel. And yes, I agree with you there. They've had a nice string of good shows lately (and no, it doesn't hurt that nearly all the boys I like are on nearly every week) and things are definitely looking up. I'd like to see them bring back certain people and bring in others (okay, *one* other, if only because I hate the idea of watching two hours of Raw to *maybe* see him) and get rid of others, but overall they've definitely made up for their general sucktitude this summer.

That would rule. With all of us being close to metros (yes?) we could find a mutual meeting place to meet up for lunch or something? LOL we could all wear wrestling shirts or something to identify each other! X^D

They've had a nice string of good shows lately (and no, it doesn't hurt that nearly all the boys I like are on nearly every week) and things are definitely looking up.

WORD on all accounts. The writing has been decent overall, the boys we love have had quite a bit of good airtime, Angel is back (albeit shamefully overcovered as CM), and a decided acceleration in pace and intensity. They're honestly making me care about what's to come each week, and that's been something that's honestly missing for me for most of RAW these days. They don't have storylines that I really give a damn about; just people that I want to see and then I zone out after they're off screen.

(P.S. Great icon. That may be one of my fave lines from Firefly.)

Yes, indeed, lol. I don't know about the wrestling shirts thing, though. *grin* The ones I have, I won't wear in public (because I have no desire to be arrested), and Fae doesn't actually own any. We'd be pretty easy to pick out, though.

The only thing that irks me about TNA lately is that nearly all the boys are overcovered. I mean, AJ's been wearing long tights for a good while now, Sabin's switched to the long shorts, Angel's all covered up...I swear, if I see Kaz or James or Tomko all covered up any day soon, I'm going to scream.

Heh, thanks. I have a couple like that combining HP houses with Firefly and Serenity quotes. My favorite is the Ravenclaw "I can kill you with my brain". I found a whole post of them recently and was super disappointed - I'd so been hoping for a Slytherin "Shiny. Let's be bad guys."

From: [identity profile] phoenixastraea.livejournal.com
Heh, arrested, eh? Some of the new ones are actually subtle enough to seem just like regular indy Tshirts. Either way, we'd pick each other out! =^D

Yeah, I've really missed seeing Christian, Angel, AJ, and some of the others wearing the itty bitty pants. We didn't even get to see the amazing return of Curry Man's adorable belly shirts, which I was DYING to see again!! Argh.

Re: Kaz, James, and Tomko, you and me BOTH sister. If they started covering up their bodies (especially Ty for me), I would be LIVID. Those bodies are meant to be DISPLAYED and WORSHIPPED, people! Screaming would ensue, to be sure. Having Ty backstage wearing those jeans and those lil white or black wifebeaters is one thing, but when he's wrestling and getting all sweaty, he better be in those briefs or I riot.

Hmmm...Gryffindor with the "Big Damn Heroes"? Or Slytherin "I swear by my pretty floral bonnet...I will END you."

Not for that reason, lol. Someone'd be liable to make a stupid comment about the shirts I have, and then I'd just have to haul off and punch them. Hence the getting arrested, lol. However, I *want* the shirt Angel's wearing in the HOTM pic I posted today...or the one he was wearing the night he was "fired". Those are awesome.

*tilts head* I don't believe Christian's ever worn anything but long tights, even when he was in the E, lol. But as for the rest - the coverage is freaking sacrilegious. Or something.

I always like seeing Ty in his itty bitty trunks, but my riot would have to be over James. He doesn't have the most perfect body ever, but damn, I adore his thighs and if he starts covering them up, we're going to be talking about taking desperate measures, i.e. a trip to Orlando to hunt him down at tapings and demand what the hell he thinks he's doing. Kaz, I think, is too smug about his perfect body to cover it up.

*giggles* Mal in drag is one of my favorite moments of the entire show. Except, of course, for shirtless Simon.

From: [identity profile] phoenixastraea.livejournal.com
I actually have the one that Angel's wearing in that pic you posted. It reeks of awesomeness. My buddy Ace got it for me when it first came out. Speaking of Ace, he actually did some training with James and has some really funny ass stories about him, including one time when he dared him to chop him across the chest...to amazing effect. X^D

Meaning that I have some slight connection directly back TO James should he ever commit the sin of covering up! ;^) I agree with you about Kaz and honestly, Ty's so big that if he ever wrestled in tights, I'd fear for them busting!

...Ty busting out of his wrestling outfit...*shoos away pr0n!bunny*

Mmmm, I've always been a Simon fan. I mark for Tam's.

1. The hottest member of this band is: Probably the lead singer; people seem to think of him as a God of Sex, but to me, he's just ok.

Mmmm, god of sex, yesh plz! I'm currently planning a story for him, he *needs* to be in one of my books. Too hot not to be.

I think he's ok looking, it's more the attitude and the confidence that makes him go from just ok looking to holy sweet christ that is one sexy mother fucker. But then, I tend to find unconventional looking men the most attractive. Gimme my flaws, they make me happy on hot men.

I totally agree. Most of the men I find attractive, most people look at me and imitate my icon.

Then there's this guy:

Did you SEE him on this weeks Impact? Him kneeling on all fours when Angle had him in the Ankle lock nearly made me spontaneously combust.

Oh yes, I saw lol. Ty looked amazing this week! As if he doesn't every week, but still.

And how freaking sweet was him coming to AJ's defense backstage?! I cooed and melted all over the place. *hearts Ty*

It was totally sweet! Although, I don't think he's going to be too thrilled with him this week.

Yeah, cooage and meltage galore. As I was telling [livejournal.com profile] faerie_lissa416, I think TNA has improved in quality.

Hi, my name's Chris and I happened through one of the Star Trek communities, saw an icon of yours, and followed to your journal and discovered we have a ton of interests in common, which is awesome.

Any woman that digs superheroes, TNA, and Trek is cool by me :) Drop me a line and we should chat!

Hey there!

Wow, we really do have a lot in common! Trigun, Advent children, Trek, Heroes....VERY cool!

And a fellow TNA watcher too! Doubly impressed.

Consider yourself friended! Lets chat. =^)

Being a diehard Eagles fan, I can ignore your Redskin fan-ness because you have other outstanding qualities :)

I can tell you stories about TNA dudes too... XD

Drop me a line on AIM: XSpikeRedDragonX. I'd love to chat!

Well, I'm a DC girl, so being a Skins fan is in my blood. Skin's by birth; Packers fan by choice. =^)

TNA dudes, huh? Know some of the guys in the industry?

Cool, I'm on there as SelenaKCatwoman! Here's hoping we'll talk soon!

Big Catwoman fan? I'm a diehard Wolverine fan...always have been, always will be :)

I can like both, can't I?

DC = CW, Bats, GL (Hal, primarily), WW, and of course, the rest of Batman's Rogues Gallery.

Marvel = *points to icon*, X-Men, and Iron Man

From: [identity profile] fallnangelspike.livejournal.com
I enjoy Batman and Green Lantern from DC, and X-Men/Spider-Man/Wolverine/Hulk from Marvel.

So yes, you can certainly like both :)
