I read the first Alias prequel book today and it reminded me of how much this song makes me think of Jack. Some of it doesn't exactly fit Jack but the emotion behind it, all the regret in it, works perfectly for him. I know I've posted these lyrics before but it's really one of the most beautiful and heartbreaking songs I've ever heard.

I wished I was smarter
I wished I was stronger
I wished I loved Jesus
The way my wife does
I wish it had been easier
Instead of any longer
I wished I could have stood where you would have been proud
But that won't happen now
That won't happen now

There's a whole lot of singing that's never gonna be heard
Disappearing everyday without so much as a word somehow
Think I broke the wings off that little song bird
She's never gonna fly to the top of the world right now
Top of the world

I don't have to answer any of these questions
Don't have no God to teach me no lessons
I come home in the evening
Sit in my chair
One night they called me for supper
But I never got up
I stayed right there in my chair

There's a whole lot of singing that's never gonna be heard
Disappearing everyday without so much as a word somehow
Think I broke the wings off that little song bird
She's never gonna fly to the top of the world right now
Top of the world

I wished I'd a known you
Wished I'd a shown you
All of the things I was on the inside
I'd pretend to be sleeping
When you come in in the morning
To whisper goodbye
Go to work in the rain
I don't know why
Don't know why

'Cause everyone's singing
We just wanna be heard
Disappearing everyday without so much as a word somehow
Wanna grab a hold of that little song bird
Take her for a ride to the top of the world right now

To the top of the world
To the top of the world
To the top of the world
To the top of the world
To the top of the world
To the top of the world
To the top of the world
To the top of the world

"You asked me the other day about school. I couldn't help you. I'm out of practice when it comes to personal matters...Believing your mother was a professor may have influenced you somewhat but the decision to go back to school was yours and I'd trust that. I think that if you stick with it you can become the kind of teacher your students will always remember."-Jack (to Sydney)
I've been listening to angsty music all day and was inspired to make more icons.

I loves me some broken boys )

You know I've made over a hundred icons of just Dean. Me, obsessed? No way. *L*
I always make icons when I can't sleep.

Who needs sleep? )
I made my first animated icon! I'm so proud of myself.


2) 3) 4) 5) 6)

I was a little mean to Sloane but I actually like Sloane. I'm not often a fan of the villians but he just had a certain je ne sais quoi.

ETA: Got another HP icon.
I made a Sydney and Jack Bristow header that I love! I'm also posting some old headers I've made that I'm quite fond of.

Alias, Harry Potter, and Supernatural headers in here )

I suddenly have the urge to make an icon that says "Cause that's how Spydaddy rolls bitches" and one that says "McGonogall will fuck your shit up".
I made icons again. The first batch is random icons from MST3K and Harry Potter.
There are a couple of ones with fanart from book seven so spoiler alert )

I also made icons of a few of my favorite characters with the name of the Hogwarts house I think they'd be in.

Sorting characters into houses is my latest obsession )

20 Multi-Fandom icons
*Warning spoilers for last night's Supernatural*

Icons from Supernatural, CSI NY, and Alias )
OMG they have Supernatural merchandise for sale now! Are action figures far away? I hope not, I really want my own little Dean. Speaking of which I really want to buy a Tara action figure. And double OMG they have a BtVS version of Wesley! But what the hell is up with him having no glasses? That's so an AtS Wesley thing. Where the hell is the Spydaddy action figure? They have Sloane and two different versions of Sydney but no Spydaddy! :(
I also want to buy this and this so I can mail them off to (hopefully) be autographed. Actually I really need to remind myself that it would be very bad to spend all my money on this stuff and not be able to eat. Eating is important, not eating leads to death.

I'm bored so I made some new South Park characters. I'm gonna post them along with some of my old ones too.

Characters from DA, SPN, BtVS, Alias, VM, PB, and HP )
Oh Spydaddy why did you have to die?! The scene with Sydney and Jack saying goodbye destroyed me! He told her how special she was and how he didn't want this life for her and she kept saying how she didn't want to leave him and I cried so hard. I hate that Jack had to die but at least he went out a hero. He sacrificed himself to stop Sloane and to save Sydney. I thought I was done crying and then they got to the scene where she told Dixon that she named her son Jack and I started all over again. Jack Bristow is the best dad ever! Period. And Sydney and Jack are the best father-daughter team ever! I love Veronica and Keith, but they can't even compare to the Bristows.
*sigh* Why is the sound on my computer fucked up? It worked fine last night. I don't know what to do to try to fix it.
Okay so it's working now. *shrug*

[livejournal.com profile] colleendetroit just posted her new Ryan O'Reily doll and she used the head from "Beach Fun Ken", a.k.a Plastic Dean! I'd know that head anywhere. Wow it's bizarre that plastic Dean and Ryan would have the same head.

I'm watching season 5 of Alias now and I just love that my show has exchanges like this:
Jack-"Cover your mother. If she even so much as blinks..."
Sydney-"I'll shoot her."

The Bristows are the ultimate dysfunctional family. Also loved seeing Will back. It was so funny when he found out he had a bomb in his head and Marshall said it was a small bomb and it wouldn't do too much damage. Will was like so I'll be okay and Marshall said no, but there won't be any collateral damage. *LMAO* Bascially saying your head's gonna explode but we'll be fine. Of course it reminded me of the Dark Angel episode when Alec had a bomb in his head, it's not like a bomb in the head is that common a plot device. You know Alec was much more calm about it than Will was.
Guess what arrived in the mail today? Season 5 of Alias! I watched the first couple of episodes and I am confused. I know Vaughn is alive and well in the finale so what the hell happened when he "died"? Did APO fake the whole thing? Please tell me it wasn't another double. I was already pissed when they used that as an excuse for Spymommy coming back from the dead.

I don't remember which episode was the last one I watched before I quit. I think it was right when Amy Acker showed up as a villian. Not that I have anything against Amy Acker, other than the idea of her kicking anyone's ass being ridiculous. She's so skinny you could snap her in half like a twig! It's just the last episode I remember watching, she showed up.

Also as always I love Spydaddy forever and ever. I actually teared up a little at the scene where Sydney is talking about how Vaughn should have been there for the sonogram and Jack said "I'm here" and offered to go to her next appointment. *sigh* The last episode is going to wreck me.

P.S. Titanic is playing on my TV. (It's Spydaddy, but not as Spydaddy!) It's on TNT and they're already to the sinking. Yay, already past all the sappy romantic crap at the start. Not that there isn't sappy romantic crap at the end too but there's other stuff going on, like the sinking of the freaking Titanic!
I found another meme I wanted to do. I'm just Miss Spammy McSpam tonight.

Make a list of all the characters in your icons. (Although you may have more than one icon of a single character, they only go on the list once.) Alphabetize it. Take the first two people on the list; that's your first pairing. Second two people; second pairing. Etc.

My results )
