tsukinofaerii: Can't Think Without Coffee (Coffee)
[personal profile] tsukinofaerii

I had to get that out. *g* Since TurnItIn went batshit on our system (it was mixing up student identities sahddasjh;klsjdsaj NO) we switched to SafeAssign. Which has now gone batshit on our system. Thankfully, it's in significantly less frightening ways. It just won't work now. (sighs heavily) So yesterday, I got many, many calls from people who are apparently unable to read the notice we posted. We're also in finals week, so there were the usual "I tried to upload this last week but something went wrong and now it's due in ten minutes HALP" calls, and the ones that aren't actually supposed to go to me but do anyway for some strange reason. This includes textbook pricing questions.

I'm working on putting together an OST (FST? Can it be an FST when I'm the author?) for the girl!Steve fic. I want to use all female vocalists if I can, which is making this kind of awkward (damn you, internet, for not having a female-voiced version of Girl in the War). Also, a surprising number of my girl!power songs are... not Cappish. >_> Though her reaction to Sexy, Naughty, Bitchy would be comedy gold. Posting date is May 8! \♥/

In other news, LJ has done something stupid. Again. (facepalms forever) Dear LJ, please to stop making me want to move permanently to DreamWidth. I love you. All my friends are here. But this is really, really close to too much.

Have you tried the Waifs or the Weird Sisters for Cap songs? There's also a lot of period stuff that might fit.

Poking through my collection, I realise that you also really need to acquire some Lena Horne and Billie Holiday. Also, "Arlington" by the Wailin' Jennys, Ella Fitzgarld's cover of "Street of Dreams," Lucy Kaplansky's "I Had Something," Kirstin Sweetland! (specifically "Burial at Sea," and "Battle Hymn"), Joni Mitchell's "A Case of You"

Which shell conclude my selection of chick singers fo the 1940s and hippie folk musicians.

Gah, that sounds like a mess with TurnItIn--that's one of the anti-plagiarism programs, isn't it? I am clutching my paper copies of papers...for portability, and also because when I have access to internet, I have a bad habit of goofing off. Like, um, now! LOL. I hope the problems clear up soon, if only because finals must eventually end. *pets you in sympathy*

For your fan mix, I highly recommend Dar Williams' track "As Cool As I Am" from her CD "Mortal City." Sample lyric: "If I could believe that stuff, I'd say that woman has a halo, / And I look out and say, yeah, she's really blond, / And then I go outside and join the others/ *I* am the others." Also, her "Alleluia" is a thing of great beauty. Dar's really cool, though she eventually took singing lessons and lost some of the uniqueness of her sound.

Yep, TurnItIn was the original anti-plagarism program, I think, but lately it's been unreliable even outside the "why is there someone else's work in my file" thing. SafeAssign is nice enough, but Blackboard has been proven to hate our collective guts. I always recommend that teachers get hard copies too, when possible. (clings)

(seeks out and downloads) Oooooh, I like this. It has a good, martial beat. x.X Stevie is shockingly hard to find music for. I keep stumbling over Gail lyrics (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jLntFKtR66g), Tony lyrics (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pw0-X9v93zk), and even Jan lyrics (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKylSOhtLHk)... But not much Stevie. ._.

Not quite as martial, but consider Pink's "Fistfull of Glitter"--[livejournal.com profile] deviouslint and [livejournal.com profile] lupus_dragon put it on one of their Steve/Tony mixes a while back, and I thought it might be a fun counterpoint.

Oooh, I didn't think of that one! It would be a good counter-point! ♥ It's nice and gentle. And I'm pretty sure I already own it. Somewhere. ._.

What kind of songs are you looking for? Ani DiFranco's Not A Pretty Girl might suit?

Wind's Four Quarters is on the hippy side; March of Cambreadth is powerful, but distinctly pre-modern warfare.

I love Heather Alexander. D: But the tone doesn't really fit. Well, March does. (grin) But Stevie doesn't get any WWII screen time, other than the opening. Not a Pretty Girl might work; I'll need to track it down and have a listen.

Most of what I need at this point are fighty sort of songs. I have things like Stand Still, Look Pretty (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R_JKCKckj84) and No Place that Far (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8F9LCu5PJU4) (blatantly Steve/Gail), but apparently female vocalists don't do much music that would suit pulling a Cap Special on Hank, or anything Hulk. The closest I have is Giant (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-sxGqG8t-d0). x.X (Fair warning: I cannot open YouTube right now, but those look like they're the right ones at a glance.)

Bit of a cliche, but No Doubt's Just A Girl?

Not A Pretty Girl. Not sure it's fighty, but it's aggressive; lyrics below.

i am not a pretty girl
that is not what i do
i ain't no damsel in distress
and i don't need to be rescued
so put me down punk
maybe you'd prefer a maiden fair
isn't there a kitten stuck up a tree somewhere

i am not an angry girl
but it seems like i've got everyone fooled
every time i say something they find hard to hear
they chalk it up to my anger
and never to their own fear
and imagine you're a girl
just trying to finally come clean
knowing full well they'd prefer you
were dirty and smiling

and i am sorry
i am not a maiden fair
and i am not a kitten stuck up a tree somewhere

and generally my generation
wouldn't be caught dead working for the man
and generally i agree with them
trouble is you gotta have yourself an alternate plan
and i have earned my disillusionment
i have been working all of my life
and i am a patriot
i have been fighting the good fight

There are a sad lack of fighty songs by girls.
and what if there are no damsels in distress
what if i knew that and i called your bluff?
don't you think every kitten figures out how to get down
whether or not you ever show up

Ooooh, I like that too (snatches)

No Doubt's Just a Girl... You know. It might work for "I am a helpless damsel in distress please to be ignoring my massive musculature" in the beginning.

Polyphonic Spree did "Soldier Girl." It's my favorite song by them. Not too fighty, but worth a listen.

There aren't enough fighty girl songs out. Except for "Girl Fight," which might fit if you ever made a crack girl!Cap mix.

I may have to start cutting songs. :D Thank you for the rec!

There really aren't. D:< It's frustrating.
