That's my goal today, my day off, the goal of nothingness. Went on a drive in the sunny rain, perfect. Now, for more nothingness, a silly survey that I like because I'm listening to forgotten music. This came from redmolly, who I found on Ashley's page, and who I tried to link to, but I feebed out, and couldn't handle it for some reason.
So, if you want to play too, do this.
1. put your music player on shuffle
2. press forward with each question
3. use the song title as the answer to the question
HOW DO YOU FEEL TODAY?
"I'll fly Away" Allison Krauss & Gillian Welch - From the Oh Brother Where art Thou soundtrack - And I flew on a drive, sure.
WHAT'S YOUR OUTLOOK ON LIFE?
"Friday, I'm in Love" The Cure - Pretty funny that it's friday, no?
WHAT DOES YOUR FAMILY THINK OF YOU?
"Steel Stars" Pan American - Hmm, sounds pretty.
WHAT DO YOUR FRIENDS THINK OF YOU?
"Let's Lynch the Landlord" Dead Kennedys - yes, yes, yes

"Unconsciously Screaming" The Flaming Lips - I love picturing strangers unconsciously screaming as they pass me on the street.

WILL YOU BE SUCCESSFUL IN LIFE?
"My Own Planet" The Flaming Lips - Hell yes, I like this answer. I'm also seeing that my itunes shuffle with over 10,000 songs is heavily slanted towards The Flaming Lips. Who can blame it, what's next?
WHAT SONGS SHOULD THEY PLAY ON YOUR BIRTHDAY?
"It's Gonna Rain" Violent Femmes - Pretty much a guarantee when your birthday is in under Northwest Autumn skies.
WHAT SONG SHOULD THEY PLAY AT YOUR FUNERAL?

YOUR FAVORITE SAYING?
"Teardrop Explodes" - Log Cabin - Or it might be the other way around. I can't tell, it's a mystery track.
THE SONG THAT YOU WILL PUT AS YOUR SUBJECT?
"Dead" Pixies - What subject? That makes no sense. But, I'm enjoying my itunes shuffling. Maybe this survey was put out by the marketing department at itunes HQ. Well, if so, they win. For now I shall paint and continue enjoying the surprise of the shuffle.
