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!

Oh, do you post on F_W, too? Is your screen name the same over there? I love that place! Snark and laughs are always good times.

I had been lurking there for a few months, and then several weeks ago I posted something anonymously under the name of "Laoshu" ("mouse" in Chinese), and one of the paid-account holders liked it enough to offer me an account. So I've been trying to bring teh funneh ever since. :) Glad you like it!

I've seen a few of the other Quillers, like story (I forget all the numbers that come after her name) and Corned Bee, over there from time to time, too.

No, I don't have a Journelfen account. I just lurk and occasionally make anonymous comments when the situation begs it, but I could probably count on one hand that I've done that, and as far as I recall it wasn't anything particularly noteworthy. And I've been lurking there since a little while before HBP came out.
