I don't often recc stuff...  
...but OMG this person's brilliance just floored me!

How brilliant an idea is that?
And how much of a douche am I for not thinking of it myself?
Why am I asking you? *lol* Ahh, Mel Brooks ref ftw.

In other news: DAMNIT! Round 5 of the kinkmeme just blew totally past me! XO

When I saw that and reblogged it on tumblr, I was REALLY jealous I didn't think of that myself. It's brilliant. And I adore the tagline - "this is not a battle between good and evil." I think that should be the tagline for the next movie! (see, already thinking ahead!)

Have you seen this and this>? Some of my favourite, favourite songs being used for Charles/Erik.

Yup and yup! *thanks to your tumblr, s'where I saw them* I love Running Up That Hill *already in the gargantuan XL playlist* especially the Placebo cover, and *guh!* the idea of Erik saying to Charles/Charles saying to Erik 'you don't know how lovely you are.' >_<. *dead!* And I'm not even a Coldplay fan! ^_^
Amsie: HBICshadowserenity on July 4th, 2011 05:20 pm (UTC)
Oh, cool! :D Glad my tumblr is providing fannish love!

Running Up That Hill (Placebo version) is one of my favourite songs. ever. It's probably on par with my favourite song ever, Iris by Goo Goo Dolls. And I think having those two favourites says something about me - that I love moody dark songs, but um, not really.

About the Placebo version, this info from the Wikipedia stuck in my head: It has been described by Q magazine as 'sound[ing] more like a pact with the Devil' than the original 'deal with God'. Oh NO, it DOES NOT. Stupid people.

Btw, have you ever listened to Aimee Mann's version of Coldplay's "The Scientist"? It's absolutely lovely. It was referred to me once and I've loved it since.

I do have the mp3 if you want :).
Catcakehole_cat on July 4th, 2011 05:23 pm (UTC)
Lols! Yes! That is the very version that made it into my X/L playlist! But you'rs so lovely for offering! *glomps you*
Amsie: Under Her Spellshadowserenity on July 4th, 2011 05:27 pm (UTC)
omg, I love that version!! (it's a live version from some concert, but the quality is so clear.) I'm totally listening to it right now. I love how Aimee sings it. While I like Coldplay's version (and I'm not into them either - well, other than their "Fix You" song which is really sad to me for some reason), I think I prefer Aimee's.
Catcakehole_cat on July 4th, 2011 05:37 pm (UTC)
^_^ You can't beat a good cover- another song I've got in my XL playlist is a cover of Skinny Love, by Birdy. Have you heard that one? I love how broken her voice is!
Amsie: Confession Dreamshadowserenity on July 4th, 2011 05:42 pm (UTC)
Oh, haven't heard that one. I think I've seen a Charles/Erik graphic based off it on tumblr though. Must check out the song on youtube.
Amsie: You're Goneshadowserenity on July 4th, 2011 05:45 pm (UTC)
Oh, it's totally a sad song and totally me. I love how her voice is broken, too.

(Do you have the mp3?)
Catcakehole_cat on July 4th, 2011 05:55 pm (UTC)
I do! I'll u/l it for you now. *eta* here you go!

Also, I reckon the best cover I've ever heard *Richard Cheese withstanding, lol* is Lostprophets' cover of Cry Me A River. They got so much out of so little! And, again, Justin Timberlake. Not a fan, but I love this. ^_^' [Also, this mashup of Love the Way You Lie.]

I like how we've totally gone off on a tangent about music, lol! I always do this!
Amsie: Of Bajorshadowserenity on July 4th, 2011 06:06 pm (UTC)
EEE, yay, thanks! *glomp!*

I have to admit that I liked Justin Timberlake's "Cry Me A River" (omg, how), but wow, that cover is totally getting emotion from the song!

I like the different take on Love the Way You Lie (I really like that song, but the video makes me really uncomfortable because of the abuse in it - but I think it's supposed to do that).

Tangents FTW!
Catcakehole_cat on July 4th, 2011 06:09 pm (UTC)
Cry Me A River - IKR?? Hate to sound nepotistic but the home-boys really knocked that one out of the park [half the genius is picking that song to cover!]

Uh, yeah, the vid for Love the Way You Lie... that Rihanna girl.. she's got issues.

Say; you rock at graphics and such, and clearly you have immense good taste in music. Have you ever made a fanmix??
Amsie: Undefeatedshadowserenity on July 4th, 2011 06:20 pm (UTC)
When watching the "Love The Way You Life" video, I was kind of "um, well, I'm a bit disturbed by all this, but the tune is good."

Aw, thanks! I actually don't listen to music all that much. I only pick up new songs from fanvids and lj friends - how sad is that? So no, haven't made a fanmix because I'd be able to think of only two songs to put into it. But I totally love and admire all the people that put fanmixes together :D.
Catcakehole_cat on July 4th, 2011 06:45 pm (UTC)
Oh well, stick around in this fandom long enough and you'll have OODLES of songs to choose from - there're so many awesome fanmixes out there, it's crayzee! ^_^'
Amsie: Are You Ready For This?shadowserenity on July 4th, 2011 05:38 pm (UTC)
I hope the official song for X-Men: First Class, "Love Love" by Take That, is on your playlist, too. I'm kind of obsessed with that song right now. I love how it has an 80s vibe (well, look at the group, I guess ;)).
Catcakehole_cat on July 4th, 2011 05:41 pm (UTC)
Well of course! ^_^ I had to lol at myself: last time I was in the cinema, I was walking past the other screens, keeping an ear out for the ones just finishing their films, and whenever I heard 'Love Love' I was like, 'Ahh, I know what's just been playing in there!' ^_^' Funny how I totally despise them and yet they've made me love that song - and they knocked it out of the park w/ Stardust as well [which is why I guess they're doing it this time. ^_^]

Gorgous! You need to make a layout like this!
Catcakehole_cat on July 4th, 2011 05:24 pm (UTC)
*jaw drops* Omg... omg...YES!
*but I lack the know-how!* >_<
[and how the devil are you??]

Also, LOOOOOOL at your Mel Brooks quote XD "Why am I asking youuuu?~~" XD
Catcakehole_cat on July 4th, 2011 06:53 pm (UTC)
Yay! Someone else spotted that. LOVE the guy. And love this poster!
