My tribute to Rufus Wainwright and the end of self-consciousness  
So after discovering my undying love for Rufus Wainwright (and not just his supreme sexiness, but also his beautiful music), I created a little something in tribute. And after writing a tl;dr post about how Harry Potter has helped me throw off my yoke of self-consciousness when it comes to music and just being myself, I have decided to share what I created.

Here it is: Hallelujah. (If it asks you for a password, just press Escape twice. It should then let you through. I don't know why it's doing that.)

I actually think it doesn't really suck at all (although there are definitely a few roughs spots; if I had my druthers, I would have taken it down about half a step, or maybe even a step), which is fairly surprising considering that I recorded it using Microsoft Word Notebook's lecture-note-recording mechanism, which is fairly shoddy. Basically, I played the accompaniment on iTunes and then just sang along with it while Word recorded it. I wish I could say I was playing the accompaniment, too, but I don't have a piano here. It's just something I bought (by accident, actually) off iTunes.

It felt so good to do this--and not just the uploaded recording, but all the practice ones I did. (My neighbors probably hate me now!) As it was in the past, I totally lost track of time and just found my bliss.

PS Be nice! I'm really going out on a limb here!

Thanks for letting me know. I've added you to the credits, both here and on JournalFen, where I also have used it. (I'm miss_sophia over there--one fewer underscore.) Let me know if you want me to change the wording or anything.

So sorry to have ganked uncredited! I'm sure you know how it is--icons float around everywhere, and one uncredited icon becomes a hundred of them. I'm glad you commented to let me know. Thanks! :) As you can probably tell, I love love love the icon!
