And the Lord says, let there be LOVE!  
Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I know this is not everyone's favorite holiday, but nonetheless it should be acknowledged and celebrated in that I heart every single one of you. Don't feel bitter, embrace and absorb the love around you, and even after the day is over intergrate that love all throughout the year. **hugs all around**

In other news, I've been in a very fanmixing mood lately, in case anyone hasn't noticed. It just sprang onto me all of a sudden, caught me by surprise actually. You know how you hear a song and you think it fits a character from one of your fandoms? My mind works like that, but instead I go for particular story/themes for a fanmix, wherein I find songs that have the right melody and the lyrics to match. Anyway, I am planning on doing at least one for every fandom I am currently in, or contributing to the themes for fanmix. There's one theme this month that I've contemplated on doing, but I haven't had to time aside from the most recent one I just did.

Oh, and there's a BSG friending meme going around, in case any other BSG watchers on my FList wants to find others to share their squee for the show and gear up for S4.

I have about 3984534 half-finished fanmixes for that reason - I can't help hearing characters or universes in songs. And I'm very picky about what I put on fanmixes (they have to be right musically and lyrically and really feel right) so they can go a long time before getting finished off.

Yeah, that's my issue too. There are people who do a half-hearted job at a mix for a fandom/character, just randomly placing songs together without thinking about it. I'm not like that. It's doesn't have to be absolute perfection, but I don't want to do a sloppy job either. I take my time assessing it, and I really don't want to reuse the same song everyone uses for their mixes.

I do have a large music collection, so I go through it and try to pinpoint which song would fit for a specific fandom or character, and then I go for a theme for a particular fanmix. I guess we're just meticulous in that sense.

I never got why people get all bitter about this holiday. It's nice for couples and hey, I also just end up spoiling myself on the vdays I'm single. Love everywhere!

I'm baffled by many people who think that Valentine's is only for couples. It's for EVERYBODY to enjoy and contribute towards. It doesn't have to be something fancy, just an "I love you" to family and friends or hugs or doing something nice for others. That always gets me all warm and fuzzy inside. :D

Happy Valentine's Day!!

I love fanmixes...my problem is that I can usually only find one or two songs that are really perfect for the character/theme, not enough for a whole mix! So I admire people who can fit together a whole mix!!

Hee, thank you sweetie. For me Valentine's was just a normal day, nothing special. But I did see my mom, which is always something special, so yay! :D

Agreed. Though sometimes it might be because he's TOO hot that they're afraid our screens will fry from his appearance. XD Either way, despite waiting until the fall to see new episodes I think this is the safest bet to go about things. Still, I WANT MORE MOMO!!!
