When Pandora gets it right, it's fantastic. It's recently been selecting random tracks from Depeche Mode's Playing the Angel.

I got the album over a year ago when it was leaked onto the internet early and -- in a fit of complete dorkiness -- downloaded it just because I could. Turned out to be an incredible album. But when my Creative MP3 player died (Don't buy Creative products, they're RUBBISH!), I lost the files and felt bad about downloading it again because I really did like it enough to buy it.

Depeche Mode's "Precious" [Lyrics] is the perfect song for Weiss, particularly Ken. I always imagine either Crawford or Schuldig, but I know I'm alone in imagining a background for them where they're innocent until violated by the cruelty of Rosenkreuz. Damaged People [Lyrics] is SO Schuldig x Crawford. To me. XD

But when Pandora gets it wrong, it really gets it wrong. I caught it playing Cliff Richard based on some misguided notion that I like disco influences. It also played Pulp just now... Don't get me wrong, I used to like Pulp but I really have to be in the mood for them. Listen to a Pulp song at the wong time and you'll end up feeling ripped to shreds and miserable.

Like, say, now.

My station is here.

Today was Setsubun, but I couldn't go to a shrine because I was working. But one of my students gave me some beans so I could do it at home. With my husband, I just threw the beans out of my apartment door shouting "Oni wa soto! Fuku wa uchi!" ("Oni outside! Luck inside!").

...I hope the neighbours understand.

I posted on my Mixi for the first time (thanks for the invite fencer_x!)... but I'm too scared to join communities. Me = fail.

I am feeling down on my writing since I don't even seem to be able to meet the deadline tomorrow for BBSS.
