April 26, 2006

So I like to read blogs and well this one, was doing it and so I thought, hey its 1am and I have to go to class tomorrow, so let’s give it a shot.


* Put your music player on shuffle.
* Press forward for each question.
* Use the song title as the answer to the question, even if it doesn’t make any sense.

Out of the 2,500 plus songs on my computer:

1. How am I feeling today? “Love You Madly” by Cake um this kinda works, I mean today was a good although very disorienting day, but not sure what this means.
2. Will I get far in life? “Posters” by Jack Johnson, so maybe this should be my new career? anyone wanna buy my posters?
3. How do my friends see me? “Knowing Me, Knowing You” by ABBA, yay! my friends know me!

*maybe 25 and 26 were supposed to be switched.

Okay enough of that craziness, I am gonna go sleep for a while.



  1. I love it! Very funny, very serendipitous. I think you should have looked at some of the lyrics for even deeper insight. For example, “Satan is my motor” lyrics are:

    “I’ve got a mind that can steer me to your house
    And a heart that can bring you red flowers
    My intentions are good and earnest and true
    But under my hood is internal combustion”

    And Mi Nino means “my child” or “my boy” which is quite relevant to the parent question. And a google search for lyrics on the song brings up this:

    “To Gipsies, the child is the King. Here, a father expresses how his son has fulfilled his life, and also warns the child that the suffering is necessary to become an adult.”

    This is way better than magic eight ball. I’m going to have to try it sometime…

  2. I’ve been laughing aloud as I read this. Oh Abby 🙂 you are such a mixed bag, and I LOVE it.

  3. abbers! i decided to try this with what i had on my computer..here are some bizzarely close ones (based on titles, anyway):

    2.Will I get far in life? “There’s No Night Out in Jail” – Nick Cave
    3.How do my friends see me? “Love Will Tear Us Apart” – Joy Division
    9. What is the best thing about me? “Birth” – The Faint
    13. To describe my grandparents? “That’s No Way to Say Goodbye” – Leonard Cohen (this reminded me of my grammy)
    15. What song will they play at my funeral? “I’m So Free” – Lou Reed
    18.What do my friends really think of me? “Don’t You Forget About Me” – Simple Minds
    22.Will I ever have children? “Bow Tie Daddy” – Frank Zappa
