I’m moderately embarassed to admit I’ve been listening to Evanescence a lot lately. I know. I can totally own my deep love of Justin Timberlake but this sort of Emo isn’t my normal fare, I tend toward harder stuff like Static X and Ministry for my emo needs (nobody does emo better than a junkie, just sayin). I swear Evanescence is like pringles, I can’t stop myself from listening to Fallen over and over. Although I am listening to JT right now, Lovestoned is such a great song to write to. If only I was able to write instead of having to break up fights in the living room and the petite monster didn’t come in here every two minutes to tell me how unhappy she is that she’s not wearing her pink dress today and how much she hates the apple dress (which is actually cherries but all that matters is her discontent dontcha know)
I am however, relieved because apparently “dozens of horny girls in (my town)” want to be my friend. Gosh, isn’t that nice of them? I’m sure my husband would be pleased by that. So friendly they even send me dozens of emails every day about it offering to send me pictures for some low introductory price. If I use that along with the offers to make my penis very large and virile, I’m so money! (well, if only I had a penis)
I have several new pairs of shoes that make me squee every time I see them. I’ve never had strappy stilettos before and these are so ridiculous! I love them in all their totally ridiculous, can only wear them with a few things glory. Also? A pair of bright red patent leather slingback open toed pumps. With, white polka dots on the heel and platform. Totally works with the vintage dress I picked up last month.
Okay, I’m officially rambling and I need to post excerpts up at my messageboard because it is, after all, Titilating Tuesday – actually I’ve already done that part. Sneaky peeks of Reading Between the Lines and Fire and Rain are up and ready to be read.
OH! And speaking of Fire and Rain, I realize I posed the cover all over the place but not here. Duh.
Syneca does it again and it works well with the Ascension cover too! (Which I’ll post too because I lurve it)

Fire and Rain is gorgeous! And so is Ascension.
I’ll admit to being an Evanescence fan, but I can’t say I’m a JT fan. Fallen is on my MP3 player. LOL

Um, Ministry is emo?? Really? I thought emo was all that whiney crap like Radiohead….
I’m having so much trouble keeping genres straight lately….

If by EMO you mean, music that expresses deep emotion – yes, Ministry is all about the EMO. They’re just not whiny and I love Radiohead and think they’re musical genuises so crap might be a stretch, even when I love you! 😎
The most commonly accepted EMO as a type of music is much more whiny and young and much more Evanescence than say, Ministry. So as a genre, not specifically.
But really? Listen to Keniah (Psalm 69) by Ministry and it’s all about dread, addiction, loneliness, angst, anger, pain, fear – it’s just not holding a teddy bear and IMing a friend while writing bad love poetry.

Sorry. Didn’t mean to offend with the crap bit. I do Like Psalm 69 and agree it is very angsty in the lyrics.
Love you too. 😎
