Mixtape - The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Stephen Chbosky's The Perks of Being a Wallflower
is a new favorite of mine, after having read it recently. I was thinking about it today and came across a list of songs that the book references. I made a playlist out of them and thought I'd share, for those who might be interested too.

I'm a perks whore
Name: Gabrielle Selene Wirth
Location: South Carolina
Date of Birth: December 27, 1990
Favorite line in Perks: I have so many. But this must suffice: And I thought that all those little kids are going to grow up someday. And all of those little kids are going to do the things that we do. And they will all kiss someone someday. But for now, sledding is enough. I think it would be great if sledding were always enough, but it isn't.
Favorite character: Sam.
Would You say that You are more Rad or more Lame?: I would love to be able to say that I am Rad, for it would mean I have actual self confidence. Though I must say, in my personal opinion I am quite lame. Some say different, most dont.
Is Perks Your favorite book?: In the top 3 Probably number 1 if I had never read Impulse.

How did You hear about this community?: I was searching in the interest for Perks and I found this. =]
I dont know how to do LJ cut. = / I'm made of failure I tell you.

Friendly Message From Your Mod!
First and foremost, I would like to say that I am unhappy with the the way this community has just, for the most part, disbanded. I have been unable to really do ANYTHING with a computer lately due to the fact that I was hospitalized for having an eating disorder.
As Your Mod, the last thing I want to see happen, is everybody forget about the sole reason we're here. We all have a a special place in our heart for Perks.
Please, if You have any friends who take an interest in the book, please, by all means, bring them here. I don't want to see this community get like most other communities here on LiveJournal, just because MySpace is the new "thing to do". Please, I do not want to see this community die.
AND PLEASE: GET OUT THERE AND PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE!
And to boxingclever57, thank You for Your attempt at keeping this community alive.
And a question goes out to all of You, I guess as a "theme" for this week.What modern-day song or music group reminds You of the emotions You felt when reading Perks?
For me, it's "Existentialism On Prom Night" by Straylight Run

Since I have a lot of time to kill, I put together the mixtape that Charlie made for Patrick in the Perks of Being a Wallflower. It's an awesome collection of songs, so even if you haven't read the book and have no idea what I'm talking about, I suggest you download it anyway.
.zip [14 songs + cover art]
Comment over at the post if taking please!
Sorry if this isn't allowed! Feel free to delete it.

please let's not let this community die...
to all members!
as Your Mod, I have one things to say. this community means the world to me. and as a result of that, it hurts me to see this community dying. and I know that I'm really one to talk, because I've LET it die...I haven't been here as much as I should have and I haven't been contributing my two-cents or any cents at all, and I haven't really been watching this community with a careful eye...it's my fault that it's slipping, but in the spirit of Perks, let's keep this community alive, because I need this, and I don't think that I'm the only one here who does...
oh, and a happy belated birthday to Charlie...and to everybody in this community who has a had a recent birthday...

i thought of the book on the drive home tonight, from this.
right now, someone is dying
someone is being born
someone is breathing in
while someone else exhales
someone is falling in love
someone is having their heartbroken
a nerd is asking a cheerleader out
she's saying no
she's saying yes
he's breaking up with her for being shallow
they're getting married
someone is going to work
while someone else comes home
someone is on stage
someone is waiting in the wings
someones life is ending
while someone elses is just beginning
people are starving to death
A man is standing on his second story porch staring in at his house
he and his wife are fighting
he is jumping off the roof
he is realizing its not high enough to kill himself
she is coming out the front door to get him
they are sitting at their kitchen table with the lights off eating fried chicken
knowing their marriage is different now
someone is reading the bible
someone is crying
someone is laughing
someone is doing both
someone just found out they didn't get the part in the play they really needed
someone else just got their first lead ever
someone in the suburbs wants to kill himself
While a destitute little boy would kill for a life 1/100 as good as his
someone is getting married
someone is getting divorced
someone is speaking
someone is listening
A baby is being aborted
A pregnancy is beginning
A crime is being committed
A life is being saved
One million people are having sex
500,000 people are enjoying it
Someone is waking up
someone is just falling asleep
someone is praying
A couple is getting together
A couple is breaking up
Someone is moving on
someone is meeting the love of their life
Someone is deciding what they want to do with theirs
Someone is starting college
someone is graduating
someone is retiring
someone is starting work
someone is learning
Someone is growing and dying simultaneously
Someone is dying
Someone is living.
Someone is living. Current Mood: indescribable

okay so here's the deal:
I did my novel study thing on The Perks for english class.
I now have to work on a 'creative' peice for the final She-Bang
I'm going to do a Memory box cause it's easy and it won't take alot of time which is something i am seriously lacking.
I need things that are 'memorable' to charlie
Here's the list so far:
Rocky Horror Picture Show
Final episode of MASH
A collage of all the important people in his life (Aunt Helen, Mom, Dad, Brother, Sister, Sam, Patrick, Bill, and maybe Mary Elizabeth)
A mixed tape
A list of Books that he has read
A 'letter' in an envelope labelled "Dear Friend"
I need Your Help (Yes YOU) for an idea on how to portray the Tunnel and his feeling of Infinite-ness. I'd also like your help in deciding what else is memorable to charlie. Doesn't have to be over the top 'WOW I'll remember this till i'm 150' But you know something that is so positivley Charlie it can't help its self.
If you have ANY suggestions, leave one!

This week a boy who i knew at school, commited suicide. I went home and read the perks. And i wondered if he had ever read it.

Ever have those Perks sort of moments?
Last night I had one. Lying outside in the dark, watching the sky, feeling so inconsequential and yet so "infinite" at the same time. Nevermind that the addition of good Indian food to compliment the moment made it just that more awesome.
Anyone else have those sort of "Wow, I feel like Perks" moments?
And does anyone ever update in here? Current Mood: happy
