Nothingness Shuffle

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

WHAT DO STRANGERS THINK OF YOU?
"Unconsciously Screaming" The Flaming Lips - I love picturing strangers unconsciously screaming as they pass me on the street.

WHAT DO YOUR EXES THINK OF YOU?
"The Land of the Gun" Immortal Technique

HOW IS YOUR LOVE LIFE?
"The Fly" Dr. Dre - These answers are funny. And personal even.

HOW WILL YOUR LOVE LIFE BE IN THE FUTURE?
"Magic Window" Boards of Canada

WILL YOU GET MARRIED?
"Bag Full of Thoughts" The Flaming Lips

WILL YOU HAVE KIDS?
"99 Problems" Ice-T - I swear, I'm not editing any of this.

ARE YOU GOOD AT SCHOOL?
"Teddy Roosevelt's Guns" Silver Mt. Zion - I'm good at what I'm interested in, but I know zip about Teddy Roosevelt.

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?
"If Everybody Looked the Same" Vertigo - Sweet, rave on me.

THE SOUNDTRACK OF YOUR LIFE
Holy Moly - Could it get better than this? ------"Go Down Emanuel Road" Harry Belafonte - I think we were born together, or something along those lines.

YOU AND YOUR BEST FRIEND ARE . . .
"Frohgemut" Roedelius - I now know how to put my feelings into words.

HAPPY TIMES?
"Run To The Hills" Iron Maiden

SAD TIMES?
"Simple Things" - Zero 7 - Tis a melancholy song.

EVERYDAY?
"Tears of a Clown" - Andre Nickatina - Not so off, really. Either this or the English Beat version would work.

FOR TOMORROW?
"Cop Killer" Body Count and Ice T - Tonight we get even.

FOR YOU?
For me, for you? What does this mean? - "Elevate Myself" Granddaddy - more music I forgot about though

WHAT DOES NEXT YEAR HAVE IN STORE FOR ME?
"Dark Hollow" Grateful Dead - sounds grim, but it's a pretty pep me up song actually

WHAT DO I SAY WHEN LIFE GETS HARD?
"Log of the Deadwood" - The Orb

WHAT SONG WILL I DANCE TO AT MY WEDDING?
"Garbage Man" - The Cramps - Sure - I could dance to this.

WHAT DO YOU WANT AS A CAREER?
"Welcome to Atlanta" Outkast - I don't want to go to Atlanta.

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.

Spike Island

HOW DO YOU FEEL TODAY?
"Gangsta Walk" Snoop Dogg. Interesting. I don't know what to think about this. I'm not feeling particularly tough today.

WHAT'S YOUR OUTLOOK ON LIFE?
"Let Me Go" Heaven 17. 80's pop. That's strange. Maybe because I am nearing the end of pregnancy which will be over soon (but not soon enough for me).

WHAT DOES YOUR FAMILY THINK OF YOU?
"Empty Causes" Bad Religion. That's probably accurate.

WHAT DO YOUR FRIENDS THINK OF YOU?
"Human Pony Girl" Samhain. Ok- that's not funny. You guys are sickos.

WHAT DO STRANGERS THINK OF YOU?
"Oi!" Orbital. I find it hard to believe that strangers think I am a nonsensical dance song.

WHAT DO YOUR EXES THINK OF YOU?
"Breed" Nirvana. That's kind of sweet. I guess they all still like me.

HOW IS YOUR LOVE LIFE?
"Moving On Up" M People. This is probably true. As in the "outlook on life" question, I am at a turning point where things are about to get better.

HOW WILL YOUR LOVE LIFE BE IN THE FUTURE?
"Do The Dog" The Specials. I swear I am not making this up.

WILL YOU GET MARRIED?
"Biggest and the Best" Clawfinger. That's probably good seeing as I am married.

WILL YOU HAVE KIDS?
"Love Trooper" The Cult. I guess I will have a little Love Trooper who will blitzkreig her way into my heart.

ARE YOU GOOD AT SCHOOL?
"Viva Las Vegas" Elvis. I think that's a NO.

WILL YOU BE SUCCESSFUL IN LIFE?
"Last Rockers" Vice Squad. Well, this is certainly not a very positive predicition. I'm starting to think this whole thing's a crock...

WHAT SONGS SHOULD THEY PLAY ON YOUR BIRTHDAY?
"Levitate Me" Pixies. This seems appropriate.

WHAT SONG SHOULD THEY PLAY AT YOUR FUNERAL?
"Yeah Yeah Yeah" Vibrators. Ok- that made me laugh out loud.

THE SOUNDTRACK OF YOUR LIFE
"Vertigo" U2. Sounds chaotic, but it is a pop song, so maybe that makes it controlled chaos. Dunno, I don't think my life is currently that chaotic, but it probably has been.

YOU AND YOUR BEST FRIEND ARE . . .
"I've Got The Power" Snap. This is interesting because I am pretty much an equal opportunity friend and try not to play favorites...

HAPPY TIMES?
"I Hate School" Suburban Studs. I guess it's true that I love to hate things.

SAD TIMES?
"Ed is Dead" Pixies.

EVERYDAY?
"Straight To Hell" The Clash. I love this song, but I am not that negative everyday. Well, actually I have been since I've been pregnant. But that's temporary.

FOR TOMORROW?
"Hand In Glove" The Smiths. That's sweet.

FOR YOU?
"Creature of the Wheel" White Zombie. I don't understand this question, but I do like the song. Thanks.

WHAT DOES NEXT YEAR HAVE IN STORE FOR ME?
"Braineaters" Misfits. Good, clearly it will be a funner year than the past one has been and will go fast.

WHAT DO I SAY WHEN LIFE GETS HARD?
"Rock of Life" Rick Springfield. I'm embarrassed. I'll leave it at that.

WHAT SONG WILL I DANCE TO AT MY WEDDING?
"Root Down" Beastie Boys. Definitely a good dance song, but I am already married.

WHAT DO YOU WANT AS A CAREER?
"Whisper to a Scream" Icicle Works. I think my career is a little more on track than this.

YOUR FAVORITE SAYING?
"Forever For Her (Is Over For Me)" White Stripes. Listening to the lyrics, this is not so bad.

THE SONG THAT YOU WILL PUT AS YOUR SUBJECT?
"Spike Island" Icarus Line. I don't really get this, but I will put it as the title of the email if that's what I am supposed to do.

This is so great. I am going home tonight and downloading a bunch of songs from everyone else's shuffles. I am typing this at work. After I type this I am going to read a few more blogs and then go get a coffee. And then I am going to yoga. I will probably really start work around noon. I think I am burnt out.
