New journal!! [Aug. 20th, 2006|12:36 am]
Chocolate Raindrops
Attention everyone on my Flist! I'm sick of the formatting in this journal not working. I really have no idea why it's not. So I've created a new journal, in which the formatting actually works. I've added you all there, and I'm hoping that you will all add me back. From now on, I'll be posting in kissoffools. idol_girl will no longer be in use. So please check your "Edit Friends" pages and put my new journal as a friend, and delete this one. Okay? Okay! I'll see you all over there, at a journal in which the formatting actually works! Hooray! ~Janelle~

iTunes and Kalan [Aug. 19th, 2006|11:35 pm]
Chocolate Raindrops
[music |Josh Seller's CD... thanks Tara!!]

Let's hope the formatting works better this time. We'll see. Does anyone know how to use iTunes to change a .m4a file to a .mp3? I'm trying to rip my Shane Wiebe CD for withprettystars and it's coming up as a .m4a, because I ripped it in iTunes (Windows Media Player isn't downloading on my computer). For those Mac users out there, can any of you help me out? Also, I was cleaning my room today in preparation for university packing, and came across this old notebook that I'd scribbled stuff in. And in it I found this list. I was actually going to use it as a way to begin a Jalan fanfic, but I never got around to it. This list amuses me slightly, so I thought I'd share it. It's like a mental list in Kalan's head from Idol, or something to that effect. 10 Ways to Convince the Canadian Public You're Straight 10. Sing love songs that are clearly about females. The more often the word "lady" appears, the better. 9. Wear really ugly shoes (ie those gross Liberachi-like ones you found) and pretend you didn't know they were ugly. 8. Stare at Sass Jordan's chest. It's not like she tries to hide it or anything. 7. Pretend like the l'Oreal ladies and their makeup are the bane of your existence. Do not let on that you actually enjoy self-tanner. 6. Talk about the hard, manly, manual labour you do back home on the buffalo farm. Do not mention that your sister Mackenzie lifts heavier things than you do. 5. Act very uncomfortable whenever a guy makes physical contact with you, no matter how much you like it. Even when you don't think the camera's on you. 4. Gain as many female fans as possible. Once you've convinced them, you're halfway there. 3. Name-drop your best female friend Christy in interviews, alluding to but never actually saying that she is your girlfriend. If anyone asks, chew your gum loudly and pretend you didn't hear the question. 2. Do not fall for one of the male competitors. No matter how gorgeous he looks when he first wakes up and walks sleepily into the kitchen in a t-shirt, pyjama bottoms and bare feet. 1. Do not get caught kissing said male competitor. Especially not on national television.

[music |McMaster and James bwahahahaha]

Updating quickly because I'm going to get shot for being online soon. By my parents, though. Not by some random gunman who's just entered my house. Just to clarify. So I was looking up this creepy picture of Sultan Greeley from his CD for withprettystars so I could show her which picture it was that made me yell "BAHH!!!" and drop the CD. And I ended up on his website. And while I found plenty of hilarious pictures of the Sultan, I didn't succeed in finding the creepy one. Anyway. I somehow started listening to some of his songs, and OMG WTF I LIKE THEM. EVEN THOUGH I HATE COUNTRY MUSIC AND JASON ANNOYED/AMUSED THE HELL OUTTA ME ON CI. WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TO. Also... I knew Rob was the James half of McMaster and James. I knew that they had one really popular song back in the day. And I was 100% positive that I'd never heard it before. So I was talking to my friend Bev and mentionned this, and she sent me the song over MSN. And OMG I TOTALLY KNOW IT. As soon as it started, I freaked out and laughed through the whole thing. Oh, Rob James. I went searching for the music video of "Thank You", because come on, how fun would that be to see? But I couldn't find it. I did, however, find this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZMdseLWNSFU . It's Rob playing guitar and singing "Thank You". It's not very funny, but it's interesting. I guess. I also randomly found Rex Goudie's music video, which I'd never seen before. Aaaaand... endpostquickbeforemyparentsrealizeI'mstillonline. And my formatting is messed up and no matter what I do it won't fix itself!! Stupid LJ. Sorry about this, guys.

Updating since I haven't done that in awhile [Aug. 16th, 2006|12:21 am]

Again, going to talk in list form. It makes things way easy.

1. Ashley is gone from Idol. I'm not sure how I feel about that. I prediced that though - in the Top 10, I've been right 4 out of 5 times (I didn't call Brandon's elimination). I'm so talented I should get a trophy, or cookies. I'm just very very thrilled that Steffi's still there. You all know that I heart her.

2. I FINALLY UNDERSTAND HOW TO WORK MY NEW COMPUTER. Well, much more than I used to, anyway. And I'm thrilled, because I don't hate it anymore! Woo hoo! And plus it's pretty. :)

3. Since I know how to burn DVDs now, I just burned myself a DVD of all of Canadian Idol Season 2's group performances. It makes me so happy. :) I'm going to make two more: one of solo performances and one of random crazy clips, such as Jon Dore stuff and Dance 4 Love. If anyone on my flist happens to have the clip of Etalk Daily visiting the Idol mansion (you know, that ridiculous one in which Josh talked about flipping pillows and Shane mispronounced Perrier?), let me know. It's the only clip I can't find.

4. I've finally started writing my fic for the fic exchange. And I'm so excited about it.

5. It's finally hit me that these are my last few days with my friends and that I won't see most of them again. And for a lot of people that's not a bad thing... there are quite a few that I'm more than happy to get rid of. But there are several friends that I know it's going to kill me not to see very often.

6. I'd like to take a quick moment to give a giant hug to my new wife. You rock, hun!

Comment me, because I love you all and I love getting comments.

MP3 call! [Aug. 13th, 2006|05:10 pm]
Chocolate Raindrops
Putting out a call for an MP3 of Kalan's "Awake in a Dream". I know, it's me, I should already have it. But I'm still figuring out my new computer, so I don't have it yet. And his CD is copy-protected. Basically I need a version of that song, live or CD, that I can download from MegaUpload or YouSendIt. I'm trying (!) to put together a CI2 DVD, and want that song to play while the menu's on the screen. Or I could even use the highly illegal Jalan MP3 of that song.

Anyone wanna help me out?

Hi everyone!! [Aug. 12th, 2006|04:50 pm]

[mood |frustratedfrustrated]

Well, guys, I got my new computer for school today! It's a iMac! Woot! But here's the thing: I've NEVER EVER EVER used and iMac before. I was told by many people at York that, for the film program, an iMac was definitely going to be necessary. So that's what I got. But after spending two hours trying to figure out how to connect to the EFFING INTERNET, I have no idea how to do anything.

Seriously. I can't get my internet or anything to become the full size of the screen... all it does is just chill here in the centre of my screen. I have Quicktime, but none of the videos I've downloaded (mainly some CI2 stuff) will open. I tried to download Windows Media Player, because it's compatible on my Mac, but I can't seem to download it properly. I wanted to burn a bunch of CI2 stuff on a DVD for myself, but god knows if I can figure THAT out. I don't even know how to COPY AND PASTE on this damn computer! It doesn't even right click!

I never thought I'd say this, but I miss my old home computer with Windows 98.

So does anyone out there have an iMac? Does anyone out there know how to USE an iMac? I need help.

I thought I'd love this computer and that I'd get the hang of it almost right away. But I have no fucking clue as to what I'm doing. I miss using a PC, where I know where everything is.

On the plus side, I got an email from Steffi's cousin today. She said that she got my email from the scrapbook that I gave Steffi. She asked me if I'd like to come sit in the audience with her family some Tuesday night. !!!!!! She says she still needs to work it all out, but she's going to try. So that was incredibly awesome.

Brandon's pre-Idol single [Aug. 10th, 2006|10:50 am]

[mood |awake]
[music |Brandon Jones - Here to Be]

Since onesong asked, I uploaded this onto YouSendIt for anyone who wants it.

Brandon Jones - Here to Be

It's a song he co-wrote and recorded before Idol.  I got it from a friend who got it from Brandon's aunt.  He sounds good. :)

Just thought I'd share.

Reply and I'll give you a letter and you have to find five songs that start with that letter and post them to your journal.

So onesong gave me the letter B, for obvious reasons.
Baby Got Back - Sir MixALot (bwah.  What a terrible, funny song)
Belle - Beauty and the Beast (I *heart* Disney)
Bad Side of the Moon - Chad Doucette (I know, I know)
Bring on Tomorrow - Fame The Musical (yay musicals!)
Brick House - Jacob Hoggard (hey, remember when he wasn't a jerk?)

And country_bee gave me the letter P.
Promiscuous - Nelly Furtado feat. Timbaland (it's so fun to dance to!)
Paint it Black - The Rolling Stones (NOT TYLER LEWIS.  But I do have Kalan Porter's!)
Proud Mary - Jason "The Sultan" Greeley
Phantom of the Opera - Phantom of the Opera
Paradise City - Guns 'n Roses


So now, picture time!  These pictures are all Idol-related, starting from back when I went to Top 10.

Me, my sister, ASHLEY COLES, carkey188, and jacosh_neko.  I don't know what to do with this picture, cause I hate Coles!  But it does make me laugh.

Me and Nancy Silverman, aka Twitchy.  Hahaha.

Me with Zack Werner on Top 8.  The first thing my mom said when she saw him was "Wow!  He has a small butt!" O.O

Chad on Top 7 night.

Cheryl Craig on Top 7 night.

Me and Brandon!!!  Yay! :D

Me, my sister, and Steffi on Top 7.  Woot!

Idol and such. [Aug. 8th, 2006|09:08 pm]
Chocolate Raindrops
[music |Craig Sharpe - Cold as Ice]

Unplugged next week!  That should be good.  Except for Chad, because I can't see him doing a good job at that.

Does anyone want to make me a Brandon or a Steffi (or a Breffi) icon?  I want some. :(
