Two fanmixes based on the 7 Deadly Sins and the 7 Heavenly Virtues. If you want to know why I picked for whom, these drabbles I wrote a while ago might explain...

Songs that I think suit our dear some performers I think she'd like. Some lyrics NSFW.

Maneater - Nelly Furtado
And when she walks she walks with passion
  when she talks, she talks like she can handle it
  when she asks for something boy she means it

Am I Evil - Metallica
I'll make my residence, I'll watch your fire
  You can come with me, sweet desire

Zeitgeist - Black Sabbath
The strings of fear they hide within the human race
  The answers buried underground

I Bleed - the Pixies
As loud as hell / A ringing bell
  Behind my smile / It shakes my teeth

Kill for You - Skylar Grey
Oh, Lord, forgive my weary hands / And for what they may do
  I'll carry out his evil plans / If he wants me to

Evil Hearted You - Yardbirds
Your siren song smiling, beguiling,
  You lead me on 'til all hope's gone

Everybody Needs a Hero - Joan Jett
You know you knew just where you stood when
  Your good friend was around / No one could put you down

Night in My Veins - Pretenders
It's just the night in my veins
  Making me crawl in the dust again
  It's just the night
  Under my skin

Title: Jimenseki
Fandom: Music
Summary: A fanmix for [ profile] fan_flashworks with the prompt "rock." I was inspired by the museum in Japan, which "houses all kinds of jinmenseki, or rock with a human face, including celebrity lookalikes like Elvis Presley." Songs that represent "rock" as an emotion or metaphor, or otherwise have an anthropomorphic theme; in some cases, from the video or other place the song has shown up.

Paranoid Android - Radiohead
Please could you stop the noise
I'm trying to get some rest
From all the unborn chicken voices in my head
What's that?
When I am king, you will be first against the wall
With your opinion which is of no consequence at all

This is a very computer-y song, but it also reflects Eliot's unsettling mix of scared and arrogant, and of course his mania. The title alone is very Eliot, with his withdrawn and at times robotic nature. The whole notion of a "paranoid android" is an oxymoron, but it fits Eliot!

Split Personalities - P!nk
Does anybody hear me
 Can they even see me

This is my reality, oh oh
 Said I'll say it again, you're my only friend

(I protect you from the world, I basically protect you from yourself)

This is obvious, with the multiple personalities thing. Yet it works on multiple (hah) levels, since Eliot also talks to "us" asking if we are his friend. And the whole aspect of both of Eliot's alter egos being essentially protective for him--but from who/what?

Basket Case - Green Day
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
It all keeps adding up, I think I'm cracking up
Am I just paranoid?

Not just because of the title and lyrics, similar to the songs above, but because I can imagine Eliot listening to Green Day, especially some of the more raucous songs.

Ball of Confusion (That's What the World Is Today) - Temptations
Round and round and around we go, where the world's headed nobody knows.
Great googa mooga, can't you hear me talkin' to you, just a
Ball of Confusion that's what the world is today

This relates to the financial meltdown that Eliot and his team unleashed, and how it resulted in more confusion, and more suffering, perhaps what they were trying to solve. The song itself has a pulsing, unrelenting feel that is so like the anxious pressure that the world now seems to be experiencing....

I picked the groundbreaking show from the 1960s: Laugh In. Probably the songs won't mean much if you aren't familiar, but just to say it was a groovy, funny, catch-phrase laden sketch-variety show. Check it out!

Laugh In Theme Song
Goodbye Cruel World - James Darren
The Beat Goes On - Sonny & Cher
Laugh Laugh - The Beau Brummels
Sock It To Me Baby - Mitch Ryder
catko: (Buffy Finale)
For the comm prompts oldie but goodie, road trip, and pick a song and the theme of Female Characters.

Title: Riding Away from Saving the World
Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Words: 161
Summary: Post Series Finale, the Buffy crew heads out on the open road in an old school bus.
Notes: I had an idea for a road-trip fanmix that included the Tom Waits' song "The Long Way Home," and only later saw that it was the name of the post-finale Buffy comic book. Warning that most of these songs are unlikely to be found on a desert cafe jukebox, and certainly not in the year of the Buffy finale.

This was a fun one. And...because you can't have too many police procedural / time-travel genre show mash-ups that only last one season, I give you....(click graphics for bigger)

Just In Time
He’s from the Past. She’s from the Future. Together they’re fighting crime in The Present.

It’s the Year 2025, and the setting is San Francisco, California, where the Federal Crime Bureau has a secret time travel tech lab run by Robert “Dr. Mac”  Mackenzie (John Noble). An experimental run using live animals is interrupted by a moderate earthquake, and the resulting glitch in the systems results in the transport, to the current time, of two human beings: one from the year 2125, Alea Dhal (Megan Good) and one from the year 1925, Gun Kang (John Cho).  With the time-travel machinery damaged, the Chief of the Bureau (Lili Taylor) is faced with the decision of what to do with these displaced individuals. Fortunately in a way, Dhal is a law-enforcement officer in her own time, and being from the future is conversant in time-travel. Kang is a tougher case, but as a Korean immigrant born into a rough-and-tumble community, he is quick-witted, tough, possibly with criminal tendencies. The Chief determines to make the best of the situation and use these two assets to assist her team in handling the intense crime-wave that has flourished in the society-wide chaos resulting from the 2016 presidential elections.

Doubt - Mary J. Blige
