my life is a clanging void (lyrics meme)

fashion ninjaThree weeks ago I had every intention of going to a gig last night. But I forgot all about that and instead stayed in and did a few chores (washing, mail, a print) before cutting a friend's hair and then spending the rest of the night in, getting pissed on red wine and giggling over spam subject headers. After she'd gone, and the bottle was empty (in that order) I assembled the IKEA shelf unit I'd picked up earlier from jinty's. And then I went to bed.

Oh wait, no, I drew clumsily cut-and-pasted a panel for the Picky Picky Game first. Well, somebody has to (and it looks like if it isn't me it won't be anyone).

From the playlist of my mind (currently playing: self-pitying).

1. Why do you sit there just weeping, when you terrify all the world
2. I got a bad migraine, that lasted three long years, and the pills that I took, made my fingers disappear
3. even if you're old and incontinent, I'll be with you till the bitter end
4. and you reply, thank god for that, I nearly got mixed up in the dreadful thing
5. we've had enough world music for a little while mzdt
6. you stumble in my footsteps, make the same mistakes that I make liriselei
7. I've seen some that burned up on re-entry, bones that have crumbled to dust, it was tough but I held it together, but now I'm finding it hard to adjust
8. my set is amazing it even smells like a street there's a bar at the end where you can meet me and my friends
9. I can't speak I don't think and I don't really matter at all buddleia
10. about the men you left for women and the men you left for other men and the men you left for dead
11. you said that if you couldn't take your car you'd walk instead it was the last thing you said before the line went dead now I'm standing by the window holding all the things of yours I own
12. it hurts my dear, to see you in pain, you wanted so much and got caught in the rain
13. I would stand in line for this, there's always room in life for this
14. were you promiscuous? I only ask because ceciley
15. if you think you belong enough Dai Infidel
16. and you think this is easy realism
17. there's a pan on the floor filled with something black, I need to know, I'm afraid to ask
18. rust-coloured hair, is she DIY?
19. meet a girl on a bus meet a boy on a train
20. you should be kissing him instead of dissing him benchilada
21. I spill my tea, oh silly me missfairchild
22. all through communion I study the people threading themselves through the eye of a needle
23. he lit up a cigarette made from rolled up photo pictures of people that he'd left behind
24. going down, underground buddleia
25. experiment ends snowking

WTF?
about the men you left for women and the men you left for other men and the men you left for dead

Where does this stuff come from? And I know you drew those giant geese infesting the Tamis just to spook me... Eeeee. clomping up the scary stairs, hissing ....

That's my favourite of the pancevo strips I drew! I'm so glad that one's been published! (Well, something was going on in the Tamis...)

Ah. I'm Just a Girl She Said.

Miserable? Really? That's very bad. Can I make you happy?
(Now I look at that written down, it seems like something the streetwalker might have said in St Elmo's Fire.)

make you real happy, miss?
Yep, that's the one. A real sulk of a song.

No, it's someone else. The song's just as famous, though. You ought to know number 1.

"Hey, Dave!"
i can now no longer picture the Harlequin Ninja without thinking of him having the same voice as Papa Lazarou from "The League of Gentlemen".

Re: "Hey, Dave!"
would it help if I told you the harlequin ninja is actually a girl? It's a bit tricky to see in the costume, admittedly, but those are breasts, not just impressive pectorals ...

See, I missed that you had a lyrics meme up.
I'll be doing one tonight, I figure, but damn, I could have named some.
Including the one you just recently mentioned by Neil and Chris.
"20. you should be kissing him instead of dissing him"...like a punk.

:P

Going to put in PopArt now...

name away
... as far as I'm concerned, this quiz isn't over yet ... I may have named the artists, but that was just a clue, you know?
