I WILL NOT BOW

Ok, not sure were this one came from, just know I found it recently, prolly through Glee fanfiction too. Not all that sure about these lyrics, but love the power of the song and the chorus. Never heard of the band, will look more into it.


I Will Not Bow - Breaking Benjamin

Fall!

Now The dark begins to rise, save your breath it's far from over
Leave the lost and dead behind, nows your chance to run for cover
I don't want to change the world, I just want to leave it colder
Light the fuse and burn it up, take the path that leads to nowhere
All is lost again, but I'm not giving in

I Will Not Bow, I Will Not Break
I Will shut the world away
I will not fall, I will not fade
I will take your breath away

Fall!

Watch the end from dying eyes, now the dark is taking over
Show me where forever dies
Take the fall and run to heaven
All is lost again but I'm not giving in

I will not bow, I will not break
I will shut the world away
I will not fall, I will not fade
I will take your breath away

And I'll survive, paranoid I have lost the will to change
And I am not proud, cold blooded, fake
I will shut the world away

"Yells"

I will not bow, I will not break
I will shut the world away
I will not fall, I will not fade
I will take your breath away

And I'll survive, paranoid
I have lost the will to change and I am not proud, cold blooded, fake
I will shut the world away

Fall!

On Glee

I'm not sure why I like this series. Like most American series, it has nothing whatsoever to do with my own high school life. I was a bit of an outcast, but our educational system is very different, and we don't settle in school-deep castes. There may be some bullying, but not as institutionalised as we see in American TV. So, I cannot say I deeply identify myself with this group of misfits. Don't have a smidgen of their talent. And yet, there is something that keeps me going back for more.
Oddly enough, I think I truly became a Gleek when I started getting to know the cast behind the great (even if often times over the top) characters. Of course, getting to know them as well as interviews and Twitter could allow, not further.
I'm totally fascinated by what I've seen of Chris Colfer, and very interested in the rest, mainly Dianna Agron and Naya Rivera. I think Quinn and Santana are spectacular b!tches, but Dianna and Naya seem so very sweet.
Chris, as a person, seems to be very smart and confident, even when uncertain, and isn't that odd? As an actor, he is so believable that it is staggering. His character's sorrow, his delight, his vulnerability, even his overconfident-but-hiding-his-selfconsciousness attitude. Kurt can be a b!tch, but there is a depth to him that makes him very lovable.
Now, Chris may not be the hottest Glee guy, but I find him sometimes cute, sometimes sexy, sometimes adorable (and isn't that a blow to a man's ego, sorry Chris!!!) The hottest? It is a toss up between Chord, Kevin, Mark and Harry. Mark would look better without that haircut, it's distracting.
On acting in wheelchairs, Kevin is a genius. And the choreographer, that always manages to work with it so well that it doesn't stand out.

Sweet!

From Sam to Quinn, according to Wikiquote.org:
If you accept, this ring will symbolize my promise to you to be true, to never pressure you to do anything more than kiss, to listen to your problems, to tell you when you have food in your teeth or eye gunk, to come over to your house whenever you need something super heavy to move around. I promise to make you feel proud when you walk down the hall and say, "That dude's my boyfriend." I promise to do all of those things without trying to sound like Matthew McConaughey.
Pure Sam, sweet and dorkish!

Half full!!

Sue Sylvester at her finest, copied from Glee's page at Wikiquote.org:
It's not easy to break out of your comfort zone. People will tear you down, tell you you shouldn't have bothered in the first place. But let me tell you something: there's not much of a difference between a stadium full of cheering fans and an angry crowd screaming abuse at you. They're both just making a lot of noise. How you take it is up to you. Convince yourself they're cheering for you. You do that, and someday, they will.

IT'S MY LIFE

One of my oldest motivational tracks, brought to memory by more Glee fanfiction. I'll keep adding oldies as I remember them.


It's My Life - Bon Jovi

This ain't a song for the brokenhearted
No silent prayer for the faith departed
And I ain't gonna be just a face in the crowd
You're gonna hear my voice when I shout it out loud

It's my life
It's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just wanna live while I'm alive

(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said, "I did it my way"
I just wanna live while I'm alive
'Cause it's my life

This is for the ones who stood their ground
For Tommy and Gina who never backed down
Tomorrow's getting harder, make no mistake
Luck ain't even lucky, gotta make your own breaks

It's my life
And it's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just wanna live while I'm alive

(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said, "I did it my way"
I just wanna live while I'm alive
'Cause it's my life

You better stand tall
When they're calling you out
Don't bend, don't break
Baby, don't back down

It's my life
It's now or never
'Cause I ain't gonna live forever
I just wanna live while I'm alive

(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said, "I did it my way"
I just wanna live while I'm alive

(It's my life)
And it's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just wanna live while I'm alive

(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said, "I did it my way"
I just wanna live while I'm alive
'Cause it's my life!

Just for Twitter

Copied this from someone else (not sure from whom) when I couldn't post a link to my single Twitter post, aside from my "welcome myself" one, because it was too long.
To shorten a link, go to bitly | shorten, share and track your links, type/paste your link in the box, click "shorten," and voilĂ , you get a new, shorter link to use. Not sure how it works, and this is only the most basic usage, but good enough for now.
Comment: I've discovered the joys of Twitter. I'd enjoy indulging, but cannot stand the embarrassment of knowing no one would read what I'd share. Sad me.

DEFYING GRAVITY

This should have probably been the first one, but my memory is useles, so I'm posting in random order. Never seen "Wicked" but I want to just because of this song.


Defying Gravity - Glee version

Something has changed within me
Something is not the same
I'm through with playing by the rules
Of someone else's game
Too late for second-guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It's time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes: and leap!

It's time to try
Defying gravity
I think I'll try
Defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye
I am defying gravity
And you wont bring me down!

I'm through accepting limits
''cause someone says they're so
Some things I cannot change
But till I try, I'll never know!
Too long I've been afraid of
Losing love I guess I've lost
Well, if that's love
It comes at much too high a cost!

I'd sooner buy
Defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye
I'm defying gravity
I think I'll try
Defying gravity
And you wont bring me down!

I'd sooner buy
Defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye
I'm defying gravity
I think I'll try
Defying gravity
And you won't bring me down!
bring me down!
ohh ohhh ohhhh!

NO BOUNDARIES

Performed by Puck in Glee fanfic No Boundaries, by heavenhelpmyheart. Great lyrics, great song.


No Boundaries - Kris Allen

Seconds, hours, so many days
You know what you want but how long can you wait?
Every moment lasts forever
When you feel you lost your way

And what if my chances were already gone?
Started believing that I could be wrong
But you give me one good reason
To fight and never walk away

With every step you climb another mountain
Every breath it's harder to believe
You make it through the pain, weather the hurricanes
To get to that one thing

Just when you think the road is going nowhere
Just when you almost gave up on your dreams
They take you by the hand and show you that you can
There are no boundaries!
There are no boundaries!

I fought to the limit to stand on the edge
What if today is as good it gets?
Don't know where the future's headed
But nothing's gonna bring me down

I've jumped every bridge and I've run every line
I've risked being saved but I always knew why
I always knew why!

So hear I am still holding on!

With every step you climb another mountain
Every breath it's harder to believe
You make it through the pain, weather the hurricanes
To get to that one thing

Just when you think the road is going nowhere
Just when you almost gave up on your dreams
They take you by the hand and show you that you can

You can go higher, you can go deeper
There are no boundaries above and beneath you
Break every rule 'cause there's nothing between you and your dreams

With every step you climb another mountain
Every breath it's harder to believe

Yeah! There are no boundaries
There are no boundaries!

With every step you climb another mountain
Every breath it's harder to believe
You make it through the pain, weather the hurricanes
There are no boundaries!
There are no boundaries!
There are no boundaries

Gootmusic

Last night, browsing through YouTube for Lady Gaga's video for "Born This Way" (which I didn't find), I stumbled upon this version by Alex Goot that *blew my mind* so much that I broke then and there my Twitter silence!
Right now I'm listening to it again, and after one or two hundred repetitions I'll listen to the rest of his covers from his YT Channel, Gootmusic (I think some songs may be originals, yay!). I like the selection of titles.
And I'm stalking him through T, ovbiously!

Edit: Sorry, it looks like it's the other way around, and most songs are originals. I'm checking out iTunes. Cr@p, already see myself following another unexpected Internet path.

Edit: Yeah, I'm a dork. This guy is rather well known, I'm not discovering the New World again. Still Capital, though. And kinda hot when singing the strongest songs, like "Born This Way."

BORN THIS WAY

The Glee cast rocked this Lady Gaga song, first in my new playlist.


Born This Way - Lady Gaga

It doesn't matter if you love him, or capital H-I-M
Just put your paws up
'Cause you were born this way, baby

My mama told me when I was young
We are all born superstars

She rolled my hair and put my lipstick on
In the glass of her boudoir

"There's nothing wrong with loving who you are"
She said, "Cause he made you perfect, babe"
"So hold your head up girl and you'll go far,
Listen to me when I say"

I'm beautiful in my way
'Cause God makes no mistakes
I'm on the right track, baby
I was born this way

Don't hide yourself in regret
Just love yourself and you're set
I'm on the right track, baby
I was born this way
(Born this way)

Oh there ain't no other way
Baby I was born this way
Baby I was born this way
Oh there ain't no other way
Baby I was born this way
Right track baby
I was born this way

Don't be a drag, just be a queen
Don't be a drag, just be a queen
Don't be a drag, just be a queen
Don't be don't be don't be

Give yourself prudence
And love your friends
So we can rejoice your truth

In the religion of the insecure
I must be myself, respect my youth

A different lover is not a sin
Believe capital H-I-M (hey hey hey)
I love my life I love this record and
Mi amore vole fe, yah

I'm beautiful in my way
'Cause God makes no mistakes
I'm on the right track, baby
I was born this way

Don't hide yourself in regret
Just love yourself and you're set
I'm on the right track, baby
I was born this way

Oh there ain't no other way
Baby I was born this way
Baby I was born this way
Oh there ain't no other way
Baby I was born this way
Right track, baby
I was born this way

Don't be a drag, just be a queen
Whether you're broke or evergreen
You're black, white, beige, chola descent
You're Lebanese, you're Orient
Whether life's disabilities
Left you outcast, bullied, or teased
Rejoice and love yourself today
'Cause baby you were born this way

No matter gay, straight, or bi
Lesbian, transgendered life
I'm on the right track baby
I was born to survive
No matter black, white or beige
Chola or orient made
I'm on the right track baby
I was born to be brave

I'm beautiful in my way
'Cause God makes no mistakes
I'm on the right track, baby
I was born this way

Don't hide yourself in regret
Just love yourself and you're set
I'm on the right track, baby
I was born this way yeah

Oh there ain't no other way
Baby I was born this way
Baby I was born this way
(Born this way)
Oh there ain't no other way
Baby I was born this way
Right track, baby
I was born this way

I was born this way hey
I was born this way hey
I'm on the right track baby
I was born this way hey

I was born this way hey
I was born this way hey
I'm on the right track baby
I was born this way hey

Same D.N.A.
But born this way
Same D.N.A.
But born this way

More Chris Colfer

A new quote by my fav actor of the year, during his "2011 Time 100 most influential people" interview.

I'm just not really afraid to be my awkward self, and, I know there's lots and lots of other people just like me out there that are awkward themselves. And I think they just appreciate that I'm not afraid to say the weird things that I say and tweet the obnoxious things that I tweet. But, I mean I've tried being other people and myself suits me the best. [...] Just be honest, I think people responds to honesty.

Isn't he awesome? And still so young!

Comment: I'd say Chris is more sweet than sexy, but he *is* sexy. Just watch the "Single Ladies" video (he rocked that outfit), or the "4 minutes" performance (Cheerio!Kurt!!!) And also, skinny jeans, not that hot, but suits and vests... *fans self*

Worshiping Chris Colfer

I've spent two nights in a row with no sleep watching interviews and clips from Glee. Interviews more than anything, because I love Kurt, but he is so overdramatic sometimes, that he reminds me too much of myself (with more guts to own himself), whereas Chris is so much more interesting! - cute sweet funny acid positive - I really liked what I saw. And I think it's a pity the interviews are so much about his being gay and the bullying he suffered, because even though I know those things are part of what made him the man he is today, and are important subjects, there seems to be so much more to him! No matter the subject, he was always polite and witty, and I would love to know more about him, ask him more questions!!. And he is such a good actor!! Would love to see him in other roles. He is not as flaming as Kurt, I think he could very well play different roles where the character's sexuality doesn't count all that much. Of course I'd love to see him in a romantic movie, I think he would be fantastic with a counter part of either sex (as I said, sweet and sexy great actor), but of course, a man would be better. This slash obsession of mine!
Now, this post started in part as a way to send him good vibes, and in part to repeat a quote he made at "The Ellen Degeneres Show" last year, on Nov 18th.
If you truly own who you are no one can ever use you against you.
I just wish I had a smidgen of his self-assuredness, to not only repeat the quote, but also live by it!

Hysterical

From a drabble by IceQueenRia:
"Forget about that hobbit," Puck told him. "You can do better. Grab your coat, princess, you've pulled."
The line was totally cheesy but it had Kurt in hysterics. Without even thinking of the consequences, he allowed Puck to take him back to his place.

No need for comments

Still in a Glee kick, from IceQueenRia's Bat Out Of Hell
"Oh for the love of Gucci, Armani and Alexander, I DID NOT HAVE SEX WITH PUCK!" Kurt cried out for everyone in the cafeteria to hear. Far too late, he covered his mouth and sunk low in his seat. "The ability of speech can be such a curse." Kurt said quietly.
Edit: Yes, I'm a Puckurt fan. Not sure why, guess it's the bad boy thing. And Kurt is the best.

Twitter ^_^;;

So I budged. Twitter account as evolkyouneko (after several not as good tries at a nick) with the regular pass and under the short Y! addie.
I don't think I'll bother tweeting, who's gonna read me? But I'm gonna follow several artists to see what they do. Will start with Glee cast. And yes, I blame you, Chris Colfer!!

Series Online

I'm always saying I'll watch this or that series, and never do. So many times the premise of a series is good or surprising or interesting, and then it's wasted - it's a little off-putting. Anywayz, a place to watch those series, that has worked so far: Cuevana.tv. Also allows some downloads. And it hasn't so many adds as others.

Cannot suffer intolerance (specially my own)

Have I already posted this one?

I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.
I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.
I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.
We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.
I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.
I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.
I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again.
I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.
We are the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men.
I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting the management called on me.
I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore, nursed, and raised. The court says I am an unfit mother because I now live with another woman.
I am the domestic-violence survivor who found the support system grow suddenly cold and distant when they found out my abusive partner is also a woman.
I am the domestic-violence survivor who has no support system to turn to because I am male.
I am the father who has never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show affection to other men.
I am the home-economics teacher who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me that only lesbians do that.
I am the man who died when the paramedics stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual.
I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I did not have to always deal with society hating me.
I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I don't believe, but because they closed their doors to my kind.
I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most, love.
I am the person who is afraid of telling his loving Christian parents he loves another male.

Re-post this if you believe prejudice is wrong. Please do your part to end it.
