Anette Olzon replacing Tarja Turunen as the lead singer of Nightwish has been a wanked about and much debated things in symphonic metal circles but personally, I like her sound. Dark Passion Play was a kick ass cd even if it was a bit more commercial than Nightwish' usual stuff.

Nightwish just released their second cd with Anette, Imaginaerum, and if you want to give it a listen you can download it HERE.

I'm a bit undecided. I love Anette's vocals like mad and I think their single, Storytime, is awesome. I'm also fond of I Want My Tears Back and Song of Myself. I have to admit that I do find Within Temptation's new cd, The Unforgiving, to be more kick ass.

Then again, Sharon den Adel has always been my favorite symphonic metal singer hands down. She's made of the fierce. How can you not love her?

I cannot wait. I'm going to see this tomorrow with my brother and Katie. I would've gone to a midnight show tonight but my brother really wanted to see it with me and he's wiped from studying for the bar exam so he couldn't do a midnight show.

Anyway! Here's a trailer of the awesomeness.

I'm unnaturally attached to Cap because my mom got me a subscription to the Captain America comic book when I was eight years old to encourage my interest in reading and I've been hooked ever since. I know he's not the coolest superhero but he's a good, decent, honest guy and he's somehow not boring (to me anyway) despite this and thus he's my favorite superhero and I think with how great Marvel movies have been lately (I loved Iron Man 2, Thor, and X-Men First Class) that a period piece WWII Captain America movie should kick ass.

Oh yeah! Want an ear worm? Here's one from X-Men First Class soundtrack Love Love by Take That. Which is what I'm sure I'll be feeling about Cap's movie tomorrow. So excited you guys. I cannot wait to see him throw his mighty shield.

Haha. So stupid. I fangirl so much over him.

ETA: You guyssssss! SyFy is showing the bad Captain America movies tomorrow! I don't care. I'm dvr'ing those suckers and recording them for posterity. Awesome.

ETA ETA: Just got back from seeing the movie with my brother and Katie. I loved it! Chris Evans does a perfect job and it followed comic book canon so well I couldn't be happier. Even his original not round shield costume was used! And Bucky! And Peggy Carter! And Red Skull! And Nick Fury! And you guys, don't leave the theater early! Cool shit happens after the credits. Now I'm even more excited for The Avengers. So much awesome. I love Marvel.

Good music like Adele's new album, featuring the song Rolling In The Deep, makes me super happy. Thus I share. Click on the above link to download the mp3 or you can just watch the music video provided below. I really want to see her live someday.

Also, in random fandom news, I have the attention span of a flea and am now obsessed with the Resident Evil movies. Thus proving my attention moving at the speed of light for fanfic projects, I have already plotted out a fic that features Alice/Jill and Alice/Claire shipping in it. I don't foresee it being long. I want to finish and post it by next week to get over my Resident Evil fixation and move onto my unfinished projects.

Anyway! Adele awesome music video away!

I'm an admitted music whore and I have an embarassing habit of singing certain songs out loud. The songs that I do this with are ones that for whatever reason just make me feel happy and I just am seized by the impulse to sing along. If you want to give some of these songs a listen and maybe a sing along like I do you can find them here and here.

ETA: I had to put in the theme to Mahogany by Diana Ross just because I drove [livejournal.com profile] oneiric22 nuts singing it when we were at Otakon. He just doesn't appreciate Diana. lol.

I'm a huge music whore. I listen to pretty much everything and I'm fairly shameless with my taste. I mean, I have Selena Gomez and Jonas Brothers songs on my computer. Yeah, that tells you everything you need to know. I'm also a huge fan of sharing so I've decided to randomly upload five mp3s every other week or so to share.

This is going to be like the surprise in the Cracker Jack box in that you don't know what's there until you're done. In this case, done downloading. Anyway! Want some random mp3s? Click Here.

My brother gave me my birthday present early, a Best Buy giftcard, just so I could use it to buy South Park Season 13 on dvd today without spending my own money. Isn't he a nice brother? Yes, yes, he is. I spent a good deal of today watching all the episodes and then watching them again with commentary because I'm just that much of a nerdy fangirl about this show. I also made a few new South Park icons from screencapping the dvds.

Anyway! In my fangirling about the show I discovered this remix/mash up of Cartman singing Poker Face by Lady Gaga. I think it's pretty fabulous but give it a listen for yourself. I'll be honest, I really fucking love that scene in Whale Whores. I'm not sure exactly why Cartman singing Poker Face is so funny but it just is and I love it.

I'm not sure how many folks who read my Whip It fanfics have heard Juliette Lewis' music but if they haven't they really should because it's quite awesome. Which is why I offer it to you in a zip file for download. The zipped folder contains all three cds from Juliette & The Licks as well as her solo cd Terra Incognita. Please enjoy!

Also? It's the evil midnight knitter what knits at midnight!

ETA: MediaFire emailed me to say seventeen people downloaded the file so... lol. I'm glad some of you are enjoying the music! I hate the idea of uploading music to share and no one actually takes me up on the sharing. Because, you know, my mom taught me sharing is good.

Or should I say, more accurately, The Misfits MP3s with one or two ones from Jem & The Holograms and The Stingers along with a cover band, Spleen, doing many songs by The Misfits and others. Wow. That was a really long sentence. Anyway. MP3s of The Misfits, Jem, and The Stingers I have them. Along with super awesome punk covers of many of their songs by the band Spleen.

A few people have been reading my Whip It fanfics featuring Babe Ruthless and Iron Maven without seeing the movie, which is most flattering, but still! The movie needs seeing because it's adorable and Juliette Lewis is hot. lol. I own the dvd so I haven't downloaded any torrents for the movie but a friend says this torrent is of decent quality. You'll need a torrent client like Azureus though.

Anyway! Download the movie and watch. It's fab and you can see the mad subtext for yourselves.

In the meantime, I'm working on a sequel to my sequel. I'm not sure if I'll just end things with this latest fic and have a little fanfic trilogy for Ruthless/Maven but who knows. I'm having fun writing for this ship, that's for certain.

I'm on a Guns N Roses kick. Particularly their double disc live cd which has some fabulous performances. Particularly the songs I've chosen. I'm a huge fan of Estranged. It's one of their lesser known songs but it's beautiful, especially live and extended with a more symphonic component.

Like everyone else in the universe, I love Glee, but it's making me into more of a music whore if that's possible. Before this latest episode I was perfectly happy to consider Kelly Clarkson as the one exception to my rule of hating everything that has anything to do with American Idol. Now I've got to include Carrie Underwood after hearing Kristin Chenoweth doing a cover of her song, Last Name, on the latest episode. Oh yes, and how much do I want Kristin to come back? Please lord, let her come back for another episode. She was so good.

Here's the original for download. As a rule I tend to dislike the new pop version of country but I dig this song and her album Carnival Ride a lot. I'm a fan of powerful voices and upbeat songs though. Plus fiddling.

I saw the movie finally and it was really entertaining. I love horror movies with comedy and it's a step above just being a funny b-movie. I'm not really a huge fan of Megan Fox but she was great in her role and Amanda Seyfried is always wonderful. It was really quite awesome how Jennifer and Needy's relationship was the center of the film. However, I suspect Jennifer was way more in love with Needy than the reversal.

For those who loved the movie I offer Jennifer's Body by Hole for download.

Or at least it seems like that. First we had Whitney Houston's two part interview on Oprah which was fabulous just because of the sheer honesty involved on Whitney's part. Then we had Cyndi Lauper on Bones last night which made me squee out loud. She was great as the psychic. I include her in this post since I love her to death but to be frank she's probably not really considered a diva. But Cyndi is made of awesome and so was her acting on Bones so I include her.

And then there's today which had Mariah Carey performing the second single from her new album Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel on Oprah. The album comes out September 29th.

Now, I love Whitney and I was super excited about her new album but I have to admit I'm more excited about Mariah's. Out of all the diva category singers Mariah is probably my favorite. I love her even when she's acting cracky insane. She's always entertaining as hell in her interviews and is really funny. Plus she has more #1 hits than any other artist in the USA. Anyway! Her new single enforced my love because it's a cover of I Want To Know What Love Is by Foreigner and it's one of those versions where the song almost seems brand new because of how it's done. So good, people.

For anyone who's a Mariah fan like me, please watch it on Oprah.com because she gives a perfect performance. Normally I'd embed the video but they don't give the option on the site. Oprah doesn't want to share!

I like sharing though, which is why I'm offering a random download of I Didn't Mean To Turn You On by Mariah Carey which was my favorite cover by her until she came out with the latest track.

Including one of my favorite songs Living Next Door To Alice (Who The Fuck Is Alice) by Smokie. Click on the previous link to download the original song and this link to download the dance mix. I always planned on incorporating this song into one of my L Word fanfics featuring Alice but I never got around to it. Should've done it though, it would've been funny and I can see her really appreciating the use of her name in the song.
