These things are necessary for all of our lives

Does anyone remember this meme going around several months ago, "My fandom is really good at what I do" or "My fandom is really good at my job", or something of the sort? And everyone wrote AU fic where the characters of [FANDOM OF CHOICE] did whatever it is the author's real-life job is, and the point was to just dive right in and do as little 'splaining as possible? (I tried to go find this thing, but my Google-Fu has let me down.)

...Does anyone think it's been long enough since that happened that we could do it again? Because the last time it went around I really loved my job at the time, but it didn't really inspire me for fic, and anyway all of my fic-writing time and energy was wrapped up in That One Story, so I sort of let the meme pass me by. But now I have a different job and I'm done with Pō Pouli and all of a sudden I'm inspired and OH MY GOD YOU GUYS, I WANT TO DO THIS NOW, I have sooooo many ideas for Five-0 Does Hawaiian Forest Bird Ecology, CAN WE DO THIS MEME AGAIN, CAN WE? ...WHO'S WITH ME? Because I really want to write this thing but it feels dreadfully self-indulgent and silly and I would feel less ridiculous/embarrassed if I had some company. T_T

Anyway, it's about time for the Angela Reblogs Awesome Things Found By Cooler People post. GET READY TO GET RECC'D!

-First off, most importantly, "Shia LaBeouf" by Rob Cantor (on SoundCloud). LISTEN TO IT. OH MY GOD JUST TRUST ME YOU GUYS, IT WILL BE THE BEST THING YOU'VE HEARD ALL YEAR.

-Cover of LMFAO's "Sexy and I Know It" by Noah. Fair warning, you may abruptly find yourself encumbered with the UNCONTROLLABLE URGE TO HAVE SEX WITH THIS PERSON. I'm serious. Just... just wait until he starts singing. And playing his guitar. SO UNF.

-"Kicked Your Monkey", a Bad Lip Reading of Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know". FREAKING HILARIOUS. You may need to turn on captions, though.

-Music video for Genki Sudo, "World Order". THESE GUYS ARE SO COOL. It's like if Ok Go were Japanese. And robots.

-Doctor Who Theme on eight floppy drives. Guaranteed the nerdiest thing to caress your eardrums all week.

-FIC REC! The Tale of X by thehoyden on AO3. An XMFC AU that takes place in old Japan. A+ use of mythology, and basically SO DEEPLY APPROPRIATE OMG.

-A pretty excellent article for those of you interested in Hawai‘i stuff: Paul Theroux's Quest to Define Hawai‘i from the May 2012 issue of Smithsonian. He's... mostly right, at least in his observations.

-From mangocianamarch on Tumblr. BEST EVER.

-The AMAZING card look_alive drew me for my birthday. In case you were wondering, this is why she will always be my favorite. ♥
