I am writing this in a hotel in Lanai, Hawaii! I actually colored all of this strip on the plane ride to Hawaii, as well. See what I do for you, dear readers. This also meant that the night before we left for our awesome vacation I totally put off packing in order to draw the lineart for this strip, because I wouldn’t be able to scan in at the hotel so it had to be drawn before we left so I could color it before Friday blah blah blah technical jargon.

ANYWAY! It should be pretty obvious from this strip that Chapel isn’t a huge Miley Cyrus fan, either. Interestingly, this was actually the very first strip where I established Chapel as being a Lady Gaga fan. I drew the original version of this strip about 2 years ago, and if I remember correctly, the inspiration came from hearing my mom sing Lady Gaga while unloading the dishwasher! Since I listen to music ALL THE TIME when I’m working, especially when I’m doing boring chores and need a motivating song, I included it in this strip.

What are your motivation songs? I may put up a playlist of my picks sometime, because I listen to a lot of music! See you next week!
Let's see... my motivational songs are (in no specific order):

Fireworks- Katy Perry
Another One Bites the Dust- Queen
Effing Perfect- P!nk
Jeremy- Pearl Jam
Shake It Off- Taylor Swift
Black Hole Sun- Soundgarden
Edge of Glory- Lady Gaga
Angry Chair- Alice in Chains
Fighter- Christina Aguilera
Freak on a Leash- Korn
Stronger- Kelly Clarkson
Country Boy Can Survive- Hank Williams Jr.
Try- Colbie Caillat
All About That Bass- Meghan Trainor

Yes, my musical tastes are varied.

AAAAA. I HATE Miley Cyrus. I would rather converse with the Bieber than listen to her music (and that's saying something).
Clockwork Wombat 1/20/13
I agree...
 Emma  3/8/13
I must disagree. Biebster is much more disgusting than Miley.
Lex-Kat 6/26/15
I love evanescence and Taylor Swift (Like total opposites, I know...
Silver 12/15/12
whoops, forgot the closing paranthasis )
Silver 12/15/12
My mom likes Evanescence!
 Emma  3/8/13
I listen to Green Day, Mumford and Sons, and a lot of screamo. My favorite motivational song is "I feel like Dancin'" by All Time Low.
I haven't heard those! I'll check them out.
 Emma  3/8/13
I listen to mostly YouTube music by Hank Green, Charlie McDonnel, and Alex Day. It's actually quite good, despite the negative stereotype
Jraaki 10/3/12
I like some of those songs! Not all, but some!
 Emma  10/8/12
I usally listen to Skrillex or Deadmau5 or something like that... XD
Haisen 8/9/12
Ah, a lot of dubstep then...!
 Emma  10/8/12
The Call by Regina Spektor. Was in the second Narnia movie near the end and during the credits. Of course I had to download the whole album to get that one song on iTunes, UGH. Other songs are good dance music though. I like to dance.
Jam 6/23/12
I ADORE Regina Spektor! She's got an amazing voice. Dance music is good too (I also dance, but I'm horrible at it) but it's nice because of the tempo.
 Emma  10/8/12
one of my motivation songs is 'don't stop believing' by Journey. Which i guess says a lot about my personality.
Ginny Weasley fan 12/22/11
That's a GREAT motivation song!!
 Emma  10/8/12
Heh,this comic is great! :D

As for what I usually listen to, its usually Michael Jackson, lol. I do like some pop, but my favorite genre is classic rock! XD
Teehee :3 12/21/11
That's so cool! I love classic rock a lot, although I listen to a bit of everything.
 Emma  10/8/12
uh... Emma? I think you might have forgotten to color chapel's right ponytail holder in the second panel....? No offence or anything...... just pointing it out..............
Ginny Weasley fan 12/19/11
Oops, thanks for catching that!
 Emma  10/8/12
I usually listen to music while I do dishes too, since I also hate dishwashing. In my opinion, Miley Cyrus went straight downhill after she left Disney Channel, but what I REALLY can't stand is Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber. *shudders*

I have to say, you put a lot of work into the background and all the dirty dishes. That would have driven me nuts.
Emily13 12/19/11
Thank you so much, yeah, I DO put a lot of care into my backgrounds! I'm glad you noticed!

I never listened to any of the three...
 Emma  10/8/12
I listen to You'll Never Be Alone, the themesong to Wild Arms 2. It always makes me teary eyed. For action adventure writing I perfer Jam Project's GONG or Skill, or Super Driver from the Haruhi Suzumiya OST.
Stikibunn 12/19/11
Those are great musical picks! I love reading about everyone's musical tastes. Also, I've heard that Haruhi Suzumiya is a good anime, but I've never seen any of it. Should I try watching it?
 Emma  12/20/11
The light novels are better. Try downloading the fan-translations from the internet.
Haruhi is great fun and I'm pretty sure you'll like it, knowing from what I know of your tastes.
Stikibunn 12/23/11
Hi! I like this strip! It's so funny! Great job!
Katherine 12/18/11
Thanks so much! I had a lot of fun with it.
 Emma  12/20/11
I was singing a russian "Black cat (Черный кот)" by Bravo (Браво) all night long while writing my coursework an year ago :)
//youtube link for the song /watch?v=ljbPsAfC2IA
Me! 12/17/11
That's an awesome song! I've never listened to russian music before, but my dad and I blasted it in the hotel room in Hawaii! Thanks for linking to that.
 Emma  12/20/11
During the day, i lissien to AM talk radio shows, they are by far better to hear than any of the pop music these days. Although politics might be a bit much for you Miss Emma right now at your age.

as for my music tastes, i have been into Celtic music, Jazz, classic rock, sound tracks, and a mix of others.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 12/17/11
Interesting musical tastes! Talk radio shows are neat, but I don't listen to them an awful lot. 99% of the time I listen to music I'm working, so a talk show would distract me too much!
 Emma  12/20/11
In what i do, i can listen and work at the same time. but cheer up, many of the talk shows put their daily shows out on mp3s podcasts for others to hear later.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 12/24/11
I'm younger than emma and i love politics! And, I didn't think anything was on AM anymore.. Oh well... just britain then.
Haisen 8/9/12
ha ha................ My response to hearing Miley Cyrus or Bieber is putting my hands over my ears and screaming. LOUD. That gets a positive response called Changing The Station.
Love it!
Ginny Weasley fan 12/16/11
i don't really listen to pop.
miss stupid 12/18/11
YES!!!! another person who hasn't gotten caught up in the vortex of pop music yet... no offense to anyone but in my opinion pop music is ABSOLUTELY EVIL!!!!
Ginny Weasley fan 12/19/11
Most of my friends listen to pop music, but I don't! Well, I listen to some jpop, but I don't think that really counts.
 Emma  12/20/11
I've never heard jpop, but it really scares me that the Beatles were once pop music......
Ginny Weasley fan 12/20/11
hey, pop isn't SO bad...i listen to it some with my friend.
miss stupid 12/23/11
I know, I know......... only one of my friends loves it and she can't get enough of it so...... maybe I'm just pop-musiced out, even though I never liked it in the first place anyway.
Ginny Weasley fan 12/23/11
................not that there's anything wrong with it.
Ginny Weasley fan 12/24/11
Oh and 'party in the USA' and 'born this way' rhyme...
Ginny Weasley fan 1/1/12
I meant BEAVER instead of Bieber, sorry.
Also, 'World Will Know' from Newsies is now PERPETUALLY STUCK IN MY HEAD.
Ginny Weasley fan 5/31/12
So here I am, doing dishes woe is me. maybe I could just let em soak for a while. Com I have homework. You do not. stupid pots. this is disgusting. okay okay so I dont have homework. maybe if I hum a little song. Somewhere, over the rainbow
