Naruto stuff

I decided a while back to make a Naruto mailing list.  It's starting to come together.  I'll make sure to post a link here for anyone interested when it's up and running.

NaNo Naruto AU editing is going in fits and starts.  Meep, deadline approaches.

OMG! A month(-ish) until Naruto Part Two!! (AKA Naruto: Hurricane Chronicles for the anime.)  *spazflails*

Am attempting to make a fanmix for Gaara, Temari, and Kankurou with two sections for before the Naruto fight and after, with individual songs and a group song or two.  Am failing at finding appropriate music.  Oh, the angst.  Suggestions?

Mailing List?

Me too. It has to be said: FINALLY! Until then, I can just be satisfied with this week's episode. Again it has to be said: Finally, a Sand Filler!

You should ensure you place "Best of You" by the Foo Fighters on there to incorporate your awesome FanFic.

Yep, a Yahoo group. Mailing list. ^^ Like a forum, kind of, but through e-mail.

Yes. Finally, indeed. I'm so happy, I've been bouncing all over the place for the last week, when I could forget about Jamie-Lynn. (But talking to one of the school shrinks today seems to have helped, so yayness.)

Ah, that's a great idea! Thanks for reminding me! It's a good song for it, isn't it? (I'm totally ignoring the fact that I wrote a fic with it - that seems uber-egotistical to me. ^^;; ) That's another for the list, anyway. That makes.... five. *sigh*

That seems cool.

That's wonderful. I'm still really sorry about that loss, I'm just glad someone was there to physically help you when you needed. I would, if I were in Canada.

But it was an awesome FanFic using a wonderful song. I think you have a right to be egotistical. Because of you and my friend, it has become one of my favorite songs. I even downloaded the video and stuffed it into my MP3 player.

One possibility for a song, though unlikely, would be "How Soon is Now?" by The Smiths. It somewhat characterizes Gaara before the skip, when he was a child.

What songs do you have as of now? Maybe they will remind me of others. It's funny because my friend, the one that really enjoys "Best of you," completely relates and identifies with Gaara and he enjoys songs that depict how he feels, so he and I should have an arsenal of songs describing Gaara, I just cannot think of any at the moment.

Thanks. I appreciate the thought. ^^

*blush* Thanks for the compliment!

Oh, I'm downloading "How Soon is Now" to take a listen. Thanks for the suggestion.

As of now, I've got:
Walk the Walk by Poe for Temari
Master of Puppets by Metallica for Kankurou
Beauty is Within Us from Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex for Gaara before the Naruto fight
Rise from GitS: SAC for the three of them
Living Inside the Shell from GitS for Gaara after the fight with Naruto
Best of You by the Foo Fighters for Gaara, after Naruto.
I really want to use Cher's Song for The Lonely in there somewhere, too. <_< XD It's mostly Kankurou and Temari, and then songs for all three of them that I'm having issues with. *sigh*

I see why the group songs are going to be a problem. Not only that, I cannot seem to determine for Gaara. As soon as I get in contact with my friend, I shall ask him.

But there was this one song I just remembered from long ago, called "Brother, My Brother," off the Pokemon: The First Movie Soundtrack that seems fitting.

Kankuro and Gaara - post time skip.

Honestly, I think that's a little too... soft for them. It's a pretty mushy song. If it was damn near any other set of brothers, it'd be fine (like Yamato and Takeru from Digimon), but Gaara and Kankurou...? I just can't see it.

Thanks for all these other great suggestions, though. I no longer need any more Gaara music. XD

Well, they do get kind of mushy when Gaara becomes Kazekage, but I see. They're too HARDCORE!

That's exactly it. ^^ They get mushy, but they're ninja-hardcore-mushy - not the right kind of mushy for "Brother My Brother".

"Enter Sandman" by Metallica

Almost every Gaara mix I've ever seen has this song, so even though it kicks ass, I'm probably going to avoid it. Thanks, though. ^^

I realize. But it is the only song I know that literally defines him.

Off-topic: "Of Wolf and Man" by Metallica works well for Kiba and Akamaru.

I may end up using it anyways, but it's kinda a last resort. The only thing MORE banned from this mix is Linkin Park. XD I love Linkin Park, but they're just way too ridiculously overused. <_<

What songs from Linkin Park define Gaara?

Breaking the Habit, Paper, Crawling in My Skin, should I continue? XD

Wow. Never thought about it.

What's the track listing so far?

Pretty much the same as I had before because I haven't had much of a chance to work on it since last night. ^^

Oh, actually, I have one more than last time I gave my track list. I have an instrumental song for Temari now - "Moondance", by Nightwish. ^^

"The Reason" by Hoobastank. Gaara - post skip.

"Spinning" by Zero 7 For Gaara. The time of which it can apply to is debatable. I suggest reading the lyrics and making a final decision.

"Shine" by Imogen Heap, Gaara - Pre skip.

This one could work, too - depending on how many I come up with, I may not use all of your suggestions. It's nothing against you, just so you know, okay?

Of course, I was just glad I was able to help.

::cheers you on for NaNo:: You can do it!! Beat those epithets down!

As for fanmix tunes... the only thing I've been listening to are show tunes. I don't think "Sunset Boulevard" or... well I suppose "Love Changes Everything" could do, but it's a little cheesy, being, you know, a show tune. Or maybe "Loathing" from Wicked? Oh... actually, if it wasn't a two-woman duet, and, again, cheesy due to being a song from a musical, "For Good" is a nice one for post-fight... ah, though I've just looked up the lyrics properly, and there's a bit of Wicked-specific stuff in the first verse. But still:

I've heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don't know if I believe that's true
But I know I'm who I am today
Because I knew you.


And etc. I quite love the song, myself, but I'm hopeless in the face of cliches set to nice tunes .

The only other thing I thought of was... can you guess? "Bring Me to Life". Sigh. Poor overused song.

Hmm. Gonna put Wicked on now. Hehe.

Yeah, I'm mostly avoiding stuff with specific references. *sigh*

Poor song indeed. XD
