Grad update and two memes!  
So, our school found a new speaker. At first, I heard they asked Conan and he turned them down. I'm sorry but I'm SO relieved. I know he's smart (you can't graduate magnum cum laude from Harvard and NOT be) but I am not a fan and I don't think he's very funny either. The speaker who has agreed is none other than Brad Delson, lead guitarist of Linkin Park. Now, I was all "okay, WTF? I like the band but REALLY?" Turns out he graduated summa cum laude from UCLA in 1999 and even set up a Delson Scholarship Fund for students. I was like "wow, this guy is more qualified than Franco!"

What's even cooler is that Troy Aikan will be graduating. Apparently, he went to UCLA and was one class short. He promised his mom he'd graduate though and finished that class this year. He's even participating in the ceremonies! I guess maybe graduation will be good after all! Yay! :D

Now, for some memes!

The first is the music meme that never gets old!

1. Reply to this post and I'll assign you a letter.
2. List (and upload, if you feel like it) 5 songs that start with that letter.
3. Post them to your journal with these instructions.

onlyhoperemains gave me "S".

Sexyback by Justin Timberlake ft Timbaland
Soulmate by Natasha Bedingfield
Spell by Marie Digby
Stand in the Rain by Superchick
Swan by Elisa

I also got an icon meme! Music and icons ... what a great mix, right?

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

jbangelo picked 6 for me!

This one was made by tehzo and can you believe it's a manip? I love the Chlollie ship. At first, I thought it was a nice side pairing to Clois (that way, Chloe gets a hot guy too!) but as I read more fanfic, I loved it. "Siren" and s8 really just increased my devotion to them. The icon is just so pretty and I was blown away the first time I saw the batch that she made. Of COURSE I had to have it! :D

I love this icon ... I love all the ones I have but this is definitely one of my favs, made by duskwillow. It has everything iconic about Superman- Clark, Lois, the DP globe, Jimmy (because there is only ONE Jimmy on SV and the guy in my icon is it!), Perry, Clois ... it is perfect! :D

I really like the comic book feel of this icon, which was made by electricmonk333. Chloe and Clark's friendship is really sweet and the scene in "Noir" cracked me up. Aren't their expressions hilarious?

I love Prince Caspian and Ben Barnes is such a hottie. I was looking for an icon and I stumbled up on this one, made by x2xbandgeekx2x. I love his hair and I thought the icon looked very cute. :)

duskwillow made this one too. I really love how the Clois hug in "Siren" mirrors the one in "Arctic", except their roles are switched. This icon placed them side by side and that made me happy. I love how the Clois relationship has progressed over the years to the point where two people who like to be strong in front of others are able to break down with each other.

januaried made this icon and what can I say? It was love at first sight. The Chlo-Lo relationship is one of my favorites and they are the best of friends, like the icon says. I just think s5 was so good with Chlo-Lo moments. I wish SV wasn't bent upon killing all the platonic relationships on this show. :\

Yup, I'm quite excited! :D

I'd rather have Linkin Park *play* at my graduation than listen to a speaker. (short of it being Justin Sane of Anti-flag). But it's still cool. Your school knew it had to find someone at least as cool as Franco, or there'd be a lot of pissy students there.

You and me both! I wish he could bring the rest of the band and just sing instead. :D

I'm really relieved they managed to find someone good with such short notice. TBH, there was pissy students when Franco was still the speaker so it just goes to show everyone won't be satisfied no matter what. :\

Umm, first of all...thank you so much for all those nice and lovely things you said. *hugs* And that's great news about your graduation!

Can I have a letter for the song meme?...even though they'll probably end up being all Indian songs..:)

*random randomness...you mentioned both my username and real name...I just got a kick out of it (...I'm super-silly that way).

You're welcome! I was just being honest! *hugs* And thanks! I'm really relieved and excited again! :D

Of course your letter is "M". Nothing wrong with it all being Indian songs. :D

Did I really? That's so funny! :D

Yay for your graduation stuff working out! Lead guitarist from Linkin Park? That's pretty cool! :D

And I'm snagging some of those songs, thanks! :)

Thanks! I'm relieved and very excited too! :D

Snag away! I hope you enjoy! :)

I'm not even a fan of Timberlake, but DAMN that song always makes me want to dance and sing along! I'm bringing sexyyyyy back, hu!
Good news for your graduation :)

I like Timberlake (more than I thought I would, considering I didn't like his first CD) but that song is really catchy! :D

Thanks! I was very happy about grad. :)

I didn't know that about Brad Delson! that's really cool.

great song choices! I love this meme. can I have a letter please? ^_^
(also I'll post the songs from the last time, rofl! I'm a horrible procrastinator even when it's something I actually want to do.)
svgurlsvgurl on June 10th, 2009 08:40 am (UTC)
Yup, either did I! I read the article they posted on my school's website when they said he would be replacing James Franco and I was really impressed. :D

Thanks! And of course you can have a letter! No worries about not posting ... I know all the memes out there can be overwhelming. I give you "H". :D
kashmir_heroin on June 10th, 2009 02:22 pm (UTC)
thank you! ^_^
