Title: Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell – A Cable/Deadpool Fanmix
Warning: The last song could be considered a spoiler for Cable 13. The post is also slightly image heavy, but they’re all pretty small, I think.
Notes: Of course my first fanmix had to be about them. I think it sort of straddles the line between angst and utter, utter crack. Tell me what you think!

cover preview


[00. – Prologue] Tenacious D – Wonderboy

High above the mucky-muck, castle made of clouds,
There sits Wonderboy, sitting oh so proudly.
Not much to say when you're high above the mucky-muck.
Now it's time for me to tell you about Young Nastyman,
archrival and nemesis of Wonderboy,
Well, Wonderboy and Young Nastyman joined forces;
they formed a band the likes of which have never been seen

[01.] Foo Fighters - The Pretender

In time, or so I'm told,
I'm just another soul for sale, oh well
The page is out of print
We are not permanent
We're temporary, temporary
Same old story

What if I say I'm not like the others?
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
You're the pretender
What if I say I will never surrender?

[02.] They Might Be Giants - Which Describes How You're Feeling

There's this guy in the sky and he makes you want to
Want to make you sigh
Overseas there's this guy
Who describes how you're feeling all the time
In his mind he can find how you're feeling all the time
From behind distant lines
Even straighter than his spine
Which is fine

[03.] Noah And The Whale - 2 Atoms In A Molecule

Last night, I had a dream
We were inseparably entwined
Like a piece of rope made out of two pieces of vine
Held together, holding each other
With no one else in mind
Like two atoms in a molecule
Inseparably combined

[04.] Lemon Demon - Between You And Me

Between you and me, I think rules don't apply.
Between you and me is a space we can walk if we try.
You are, indubitably, the loveliest possible person for me.
Why weren't we thrown together, somewhere nice with perfect weather?

[05.] Pink Floyd - Brain Damage

The lunatic is in my head.
The lunatic is in my head
You raise the blade, you make the change

You re-arrange me 'til I'm sane.
You lock the door
And throw away the key
There's someone in my head but it's not me

[06.] Depeche Mode - The Sinner In Me

I'll never be a saint
That's not a picture that your memory paints
Not renowned for my patience
I'm not renowned for my restraint
I'm still recovering
Still getting over all the suffering
More known for my anger
Than for any other thing
But you've always tried
To be by my side
And catch my fall when I start to slide

[07.] Tunng - Bullets

So sweet to lose a friend
You leave the church and taste
The air in your lungs
Old lies and fireflies
Carve angels on your eyes
And all is undone
You whisper prayers into the dark
Up to a god in whom you've never believed
You always do
We're catching bullets in our teeth
Its hard to do but they taste sweet
And if they take a couple out
We try to work things out
We're catching bullets with our
Heads and hearts and all the darkest parts of us
It's strange to find such light
In such endless night
We're catching bullets in our backs
We sent the undertaker back
Into the garden in the drought
To try to work things out
We're catching bullets with the best resources that we've got
We're happy then again we're not
We shout - through the endless doubt

[08.] Barenaked Ladies – One Week

It's been one week since you looked at me
Cocked your head to the side and said "I'm angry"
Five days since you laughed at me saying
"Get that together come back and see me"
Three days since the living room
I realized it's all my fault, but couldn't tell you
Yesterday you'd forgiven me
but it'll still be two days till I say I'm sorry
How can I help it if I think you're funny when you're mad
Trying hard not to smile though I feel bad
I'm the kind of guy who laughs at a funeral
Can't understand what I mean?
Well, you soon will
I have a tendency to wear my mind on my sleeve

[09.] Depeche Mode - Personal Jesus

Your own personal Jesus
Someone to hear your prayers
Someone who cares
Your own personal Jesus
Someone to hear your prayers
Someone who's there
Take second best
Put me to the test
Things on your chest
You need to confess
I will deliver
You know I'm a forgiver

[10.] Loverboy - Turn Me Loose

I was born to run,
I was born to dream,
The craziest boy you ever seen,
I gotta do it my way,
Or no way at all.
And then you came around,
Tried to tie me down,
I was such a clown,
You had to have it your way,
Or no way at all.
Why don’t you turn me lose,
Turn me lose,
Turn me lose,
I gotta do it my way,
I wanna fly.

[11.] They Might Be Giants - Subliminal

While lying there in my bed there was a message for me
As I went through the pillow, I noticed something

Subliminal (subliminal)
In an unnoticeable way
Important (important)
And hard to see

[12.] Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds - Scum

Well then he hooked up with some slut from the same game
Black snow! Black snow!
Cocksuckstress, and I should know!
You gave me a bad review
And maybe you think that it's all just water under the bridge
Well my UNfriend, I'm the type that holds a grudge
I'm your creator
I think you fuckin traitor, chronic masturbator,
Shitlicker, user, self-abuser, jigger jigger!
What rock did you crawl from?
Which ..... did you come?
You Judas, Brutus, Vitus, Scum!
Hey four-eyes, come
That's right, it's a gun
Face is bubble, blood, and ...... street

[13.] They Might Be Giants – Upside Down Frown

Believe me when I say
I'm with you in my private way
And though you think I'm trying to blow you off

It's only that my frown is upside down
It's upside down, my frown
Is upside down
My frown's upside down

You'd probably like to give me a smack
But there's something about my face
That always keeps you coming back

[14.] Explosions in the Sky – The Birth and Death of the Day (Jesu Mix)


[15.] Lemon Demon - What Will Happen Will Happen

There are days to wake up for. There are dreams to be had.
What will happen will happen whether I'm happy or sad,
and there's a reason I'm freezing at eighty degrees in a summery season:
I'm totally mad.
We do, we do nothing but hold the window shut to keep the worry out.
We never wanna see the daylight fade.
We gotta masquerade to keep the worry out.

...But they have ways of making me think.
I can't blink, can't drink,
Can't put up a stink about the rattling battling and the countdown paddling
the motherland straddling the weaky freak link.
Imagine a world without the Unabombers, and the Jeffrey Dahmers.
Wouldn't we be calmer?
Now, of course by "we" I'm only speaking for me

[16. - Epilogue] O.A.R. - Right On Time

I know you're kind of busy right now.
Been a day, but I haven't heard your call.
I climbed a mountain just to get a better view of you.
But I'll never ask again.
I'll never ask you.
Where have you been?
You could have told me just,
Where have you been?
If you know me you know.
I won't ask why.
They always told me you'd be right on my time.
We're coming around.

You act like you can't see me.
You act like you don't know me.
I just wish you would show me
That you'll be right on my time

[Bonus Track] Frou Frou - Psychobabble

And just for once could you
Let me finish my sentence?

Do just what I tell you
And no one will get hurt
Don't come any closer
'Cause I dunno how long I can hold my heart in two
Now, I've had it up to here
Don't ever try that again
Why are you so quiet so suddenly?
Go on, have it
You're just dying to try me

[Bonus Track] Get Set Go – Please Destroy Me

Choke me, bleed me, just don't leave me
Screw me up and do deceive me
Smack me, whack me, sneak attack me
Punch me, kick me, slash and hack me
Take my heart and stab it through
Fill my lungs with rights of air
There is nothing you could do
To convince me not to care

[Bonus Track] Lemon Demon - Atomic Copper Claw

You may be friendly looking on the outside,
but I know why you only wear long sleeves.
And I know why you shake with the wrong hand.
Ooh, what a surprise.
I saw it gleaming underneath the fabric.
I saw you reaching under, tightening a screw.
You try to keep it out of sight in the shadows,
sneaking me that evil little glance that you do.
You're out to get me, gonna scratch out my eyes
with that atomic copper claw!

[Bonus Track] Lemon Demon - Sick Puppy

If I were a registered psychiatrist,
we could be together for all time.
It's a shame you're on the lam,
but I don't really give a damn
that you used a stolen taser on that unsuspecting mime.

Two back-to-back declarations of love? I think I might be doing something right. <3
Thank you!

(I -know-. I was like, just creating the cover when my mp3 player played that song, and I just -had- to add it.)

I've never really been interested in fanmixes before, for any fandom. I couldn't see why people did them. But you've totally changed my mind! This is awesome!
Apr. 24th, 2009 07:26 pm (UTC)
...this is quite possibly the best compliment ever, thank you so much! <3
Apr. 24th, 2009 08:34 pm (UTC)
Fanmixes make me a happy kitty. 5 thumbs up to all of the choices (Wo-o-nder bo-o-oy) And Personal Jesus. And lots of Lemon Demon, which is also awesome.
Apr. 25th, 2009 06:11 pm (UTC)
Glad you like it! ;)

There's never enough Lemon Demon in this world.

At first I just came here for the LULZ [Deadpool always brings the LULZ], but damn. You have utterly convinced me. This is epic.
Apr. 25th, 2009 06:15 pm (UTC)
Hee. Pretty much the same with me. I joined the fandom thinking it'd just be a bit of fun, and now, months later, I pretty much got myself an OTP. *g*

Thanks a lot for your comment!
Apr. 25th, 2009 01:41 pm (UTC)

Looking at: [04.] Lemon Demon - Between You And Me lyrics and that panel makes me giggle.

Ooh, fanmix! By you! It must be good. :)

May. 4th, 2009 12:35 pm (UTC)
To associate my name with quality can be very, very disappointing. xD

But I did put some effort into this, so I hope you will enjoy it. ; )

... I'll never be able to listen to Wonderboy without thinking about these guys again, will I?

May. 13th, 2009 01:56 pm (UTC)
..well, I haven't been for ages, so I don't think your chances are all that great. ;D Enjoy.

(OF COURSE! ITS C&DP... wait.)
May. 21st, 2009 09:32 am (UTC)
Drive-by comment to say I downloaded. Love the mix! Wonderboy is... oddly perfect.
May. 21st, 2009 02:49 pm (UTC)
Thank you!
Jul. 16th, 2009 06:33 pm (UTC)
I'm not very familiar with these two, but the mix looks fantastic so I'm snagging it anyway. Thank you!
Jul. 17th, 2009 05:54 am (UTC)
Thank you! Very glad you like it.

Also.. this may kind of come out of the blue, but I just randomly took a look at your profile page and since we not only share quite a few fandoms, but also have the same goals in life (writing, traveling and of course marrying Linkara), would you mind terribly if I friended you?
