Dollhouse fanmix!

The first of my two entries for [ profile] whedonland's manifesto challenge, just on the general awesomeness of Dollhouse and its characters. There are requirements, so it gets a little quote-y and explain-y below the cut.

1. Wooden Nickels - The Eels
"I'm going to make you an offer."
A bit of caution, before you sign your contract.

Don't take any wooden nickels
When you sell your soul
A devil of a time awaits you
When the party's over
You're on your own

2. Music Box - The Low Anthem (instrumental)
"I'm not broken."
Programmable minds, mechanical people. Wind them up and watch them go.

3. I Was Made For You - She & Him
"I'm sorry we had to deliver the news to you like this, in this body."
This song is all about Mellie, and Mellie is all about Paul.

I have been waiting for a long, long time
For a boy like you

4. I'll Fight - Wilco
"They are missing people, you know. They just don't know it."
Paul Ballard: romantic hero, idealist, dork.

You'll wake with a start from a dream
And know that I am gone
You'll feel it in your heart
But not for very long

5. Cracking Up - The Jesus and Mary Chain
"He's not kidding. We're not bluffing! I'm bluffing. But the rest of us! We mean business."
Alpha's a whole supporting cast all on his own.

They said I was incomplete
I am a priest
I am a freak

6. Not The Girl You Think You Are - Crowded House
"I'm not even real. I'm in someone else's body, and I'm afraid to give it up. I'm not better than you. I'm just a series of excuses."
Claire's existential dilemma is one of my favourite things about the show.

You're not the girl you think you are, yeah
Someone's standing in your place
The bathroom mirror makes you look tall
But that's all in your head, in your head

7. Hymn - Andy Stochansky
"I love him... is that real?"
Priya's paintings, in song form.

This is the last waiting room for us

8. Solid - Dandy Warhols
"So what did you remove?"
Who wouldn't want to ride with Kilo, Romeo, X-Ray and Victor, and their awesome library of interchangeable skills?

Well I must have a door in the back of my head
where I dump out all the crap so I can just feel solid again

9. Weighty Ghost - Wintersleep
"I'm sad, too. But not for us. For him. He's not ready to be by himself."
Poor Anthony Ceccoli, out in the real world all alone.

I got out of bed today
Swear to God, couldn’t see my face
I got out of bed today staring at a ghost

10. Sleep - Dandy Warhols
"I've been saving this body for her. But I'm not her."
Echo dreams about Caroline.

If I could sleep forever
It's of her I'd dream

11. Lonely Girl - Dala
"I've been knocking 10 years, you still won't let me in."
Paul's not an engagement, but engagements are all Echo's ever known.

You've got no mother when you're dressed up for strangers

12. Periodically Triple or Double - Yo La Tengo
"If I think I can figure things out, is that curiosity or arrogance?"
On the edge of realizing the consequences of his actions, Topher's still kind of digging his power.

I've got time on my hands
that I can't wash off

13. Leaving in Coffins - Psapp
"I've always been here."
Whiskey in the Dollhouse, always waiting, always saying goodbye.

You go, go, and you don't come back

14. The Future - Teddy Thompson
"I did all of this. I'm the one who brings about the thought-pocalypse."
It's the end of the world as we know, and Harding and Ambrose are having as much fun as they can. Which is a lot, actually.

Give me absolute control over every other living soul
And lie beside me, baby, that's an order

I still think the worst thing about the audio CAPTCHA and a sign that they really didn't test it as well as they shloud have is that they did almost too good of a job in making the noise sound like the signal. Or, in other words, the background noise sometimes ends up sounding like exactly what you're supposed to be listening for.I have auditory processing issues that affect hearing speech above background noise, but when I know i'm supposed to be listening specifically for digits, that drastically lowers the search space. However, I've tried the audio CAPTCHA a couple times when I couldn't decipher the visual one, and sometimes it's hard to tell whether or not the digit I heard was actually part of the foreground. It's very easy to accidentally generate a two in background noise; that's just two phonemes to combine! And since the background noise seems to be English speech played backwards, it's fairly easy to accidentally generate one ( no played backwards!) and possibly eight as well.I guess none of their natural language processing researchers were on hand when they developed this CAPTCHA ^_^
