You can't tell from my fic and music preferences but...

I'm actually a cheerful, sweet, and nice person, I swear.

So my new favorite song of the day is "Fake Palindromes" by Andrew Bird. I'm more-or-less in line with this interpretation of the song because I need other people to tell me what to think about things. It's really worth reading, but for those of you who are all teal deer, the gist is that "Fake Palindromes" is a response to the implied violence in "I've Got Blood In My Eyes For You" by the Mississippi Sheiks (I couldn't find the Sheiks on YouTube; I've provided Mitchell Wilson's cover, which is probably pretty true to form aside from cutting a few verses, although I could've just as easily provided Bob Dylan's version). I've been listening to both songs all morning and...

"Fake Palindromes" is female empowerment and violence and murder and revenge and a protagonist with sociopathic/serial-killer tendencies, so... really, what more could I want from a song? ...Here, have some lyrics:

my dewy-eyed disney bride, what has tried
swapping your blood with formaldehyde
whiskey-plied voices cried fratricide
jesus don't you know that you could've died
you should've died
with the monsters that talk, monsters that walk the earth

and she's got red lipstick and a bright pair of shoes
and she's got knee high socks, what to cover a bruise
she's got an old death kit she's been meaning to use
she's got blood in her eyes, in her eyes for you
she's got blood in her eyes for you

certain fads, stripes and plaids, singles ads
they run you hot and cold like a rheostat, i mean a thermostat
so you bite on a towel
hope it won't hurt too bad

my dewy-eyed disney bride, what has tried
swapping your blood with formaldehyde
what monsters that talk, monsters that walk the earth

and she says i like long walks and sci-fi movies
if you're six foot tall and east coast bred
some lonely night we can get together
and i'm gonna tie your wrists with leather
and drill a tiny hole into your head
and i'm gonna drill a tiny hole into your-

In other news, I read that Cpt. Jack Harkness/Mayhem fic that someone did for Yuletide (because apparently my destiny is in the hands of evilhippo this morning). And yes, Mayhem, that would be the guy from the Allstate commercials. Just... LOL. Omg, wow... internet/fandom, ilu sometimes.
