I’ve decided to revive this blog as a receptacle for stuff that doesn’t fit at paddybrown.co.uk (comics, Irish mythology, and comics based on Irish mythology) or The Disillusioned Liberal (political thoughts). Which means I’ve now got three blogs. What of it?
So here’s a meme I got from Rol Hirst:
1. Put your music player on shuffle
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
3. You must put down the song name no matter what.
What would best describe your personality?
“Tragically Optimistic Freedom Fighters”, Kula Shaker
What do you like in a guy/girl?
“Missed the Boat”, Modest Mouse
And how tragically true that is.
How do you feel today?
“On Yer Own”, Dan Donelly and Sonovagun
Now this is taking the piss.
What is your life’s purpose?
“Ya Ya Ya”, The Detroit Cobras
What is your motto?
“Turkish Revelry”, Loudon Wainwright III
What do your friends think of you?
“2000 Light Years From Home”, Rachel Yamagata
Now that’s not true. My friends moved away, I stayed here.
What do you think of your parents?
“Let It All Go”, Mark Knopfler
What do you think about very often?
“Cheer Up (You Miserable Fuck)”, David Ford
I think most people who know me will recognise that one.
What do you think of your best friend?
“A Great Grey Grasshopper”, Ivor Cutler
What do you think of your crush?
“Higher Ground”, Stevie Wonder
What is your life story?
“Honey Don’t”, Carl Perkins
Yeah, that really is the story of my life…
What do you want to be when you grow up?
“Some Surprise”, Gary Lightbody, Lisa Hannigan and the Cake Sale
Yeah, I like that.
What do you think when you see your crush?
“We’re an Army”, Francois and the Atlas Mountains
What do your parents think of you?
“She’s Not There”, Santana
Yeah, probably true…
What do strangers think of you?
“Ancient Drums”, Iain Archer
How’s your love life?
“Virginia”, The Jeevas
Apt. No, not like you think. “Oh sweet Virginia, yeah she is a witch…”
What will they play at your funeral?
“Bright Side of the Road”, Van Morrison
That’s a funeral song all right…
What will you dance to at your wedding?
“Whoopin’ the Blues”, Sonny Terry and Brownie Magee
What is your hobby/interest?
“Seven Swans”, Sufjan Stevens
Oh yeah, I love me some swans…
What’s your biggest secret?
“The Pink Panther Theme”, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
What do you think of your friends?
“Beachcombing”, Emmylou Harris and Mark Knopfler
Well, we do like to get together and go to the seaside once in a while.
What song do you listen to when you are sad?
“First of May”, Jonathan Coulton
(Outdoor fucking starts today…”)
“(Straight to Your Heart) Like a Cannonball”, Van Morrison
(What is all that with) bits of song titles in brackets anyway?
What song do you air guitar to?
The Beatles, “Ticket to Ride”
What should be your signature karaoke song?
“It Must Be Love”, Madness
Actually, I do a mean “Try a Little Tenderness”. Or I did once, in a student bar in Brussells full of Belgians doing Evanescence and Metallica.
What is your greatest desire?
“Disconnect the Dots”, Of Montreal
What does next year have in store for you?
“The Things That I Used To Do”, Guitar Slim
Now that’s depressing.
What’s your outlook on life?
How will you die?
“I Feel it All”, Feist
Sounds like one of those “becoming one with the universe” ends. Cool.
Do people secretly lust after you?
“Where Do You Think You’re Going”, Dire Straits
(If they do, they’re keeping it bloody secret)
The best advice you will ever get?
“Hard Headed Woman”, Wanda Jackson
“A hard headed woman is a thorn in the side of a man”. That’s pretty good advice.
