Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 50 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Italicize the songs when someone guesses correctly. Whoever gets it first gets their name next to it.
Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

50 first lines below, some painfully obvious and some painfully obscure )

This one is even less sensical than most of them!

1. Put Your iTunes, Windows Media Player, etc. on Shuffle
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.

If someone says "is this okay?" you say:
Clocks (Coldplay).  That's... sort of random.

How would you describe yourself?
I'm Old-Fashioned (Noel Coward).  Hey, this one actually works!

What do you like in a guy/girl?
Kiss From A Rose (Seal).  Er, what?  I guess I like kisses (kitchen makeouts ahoy!).

How do you feel today?

Never Tear Us Apart (INXS).  Being torn apart hurts, especially if it's by, like, rabid wolves.  Or wild horses.

What is your life's purpose?
One Night In Bangkok (Alphaville - it's a techno remix).  Yes.  That is my purpose in life.

What is your motto?
New York Was Great (The Raveonettes).  That sort of is my motto, innit?  Huh.

What do your friends think of you?
The Places I've Been To Are Known (Super U).  I'm not really sure how to interpret this.

What do you think of your parents?
Clubbed To Death (Rob Dougan).  That's pretty violent, right there...

What do you think about very often?
Minnie the Moocher (Cab Calloway).  I think about getting stoned off my gourd and daydreaming about undriveable cars made out of improbable precious materials, apparently.

What is 2 + 2?
Living With The Masses (Sloan).  Well, two's company, three's a crowd, four's a mass, maybe?

What do you think of your best friend?
Broken (Seether).  I think everyone I'm friends with, including myself, is broken in some way; welcome to the internet generation, or something.

What do you think of the person you like?
Blue Orchid (The White Stripes).  I dunno what this means, either.

What is your life story?

Shortly Before The End (OK Go).  In a sort of philosophical way, you know, with life being so short -

What do you want to be when you grow up?
Blackbird (The Beatles).  This reminds me of when I was quite small and told someone I wanted to be a unicorn.

What do you think of when you see the person you like?
Cuntry Boys And City Girls (The Fratellis).  Well, my boyfriend's from a small town in Texas, my girlfriend's from Boston (no matter where else she's lived, she's from Boston.  She just is.), so I guess this kind of works.  Misspelling: sic.

What will you dance to at your wedding?
Born In '69 (Rocket from the Crypt).  I assume this means my wedding will have a moshpit.

What will they play at your funeral?
The Doctor Who Theme.  Okey.

What is your hobby/interest?
I Never Told You What I Do For A Living (My Chemical Romance).  My hobby is murder! HOORAY!

What is your biggest fear?
Changes (David Bowie).  Ha, everyone's afraid of change, deep down inside.  I just happen to also be afraid of David Bowie.

What is your biggest secret?
Nagasaki (Django Reinhardt).  That's right - I really do wicky-wacky-woo!  Don't tell anybody!

What do you think of your friends?
Living After Midnight (Judas Priest).  Considering how often I've stayed up until it's time to go to work in the morning chatting with y'all, I figure this'n works.

What will you post this as?
Narcoleptic At The Wheel (uncredited mp3, but it seems to be by a band called The Machine Is Me).  I'm sleep-posting!

Here's how it works:
• Open your Winamp/iTunes.
• Put the shuffle-mode on.
• Find a picture of the first 20 artists. If the same artist comes again, skip.
• Have your friends guess who the artists are.

The answers are in the filenames if you want to cheat.
Read more... )
titusnowl: (chick with typewriter)
Here's how it works:
1. If you want to be interviewed, leave a comment here with some random neat thing like a link or a rec or a poem. Whatever.
2. I'll ask you five questions.
3. You'll post the answers on your own blog or lj, along with these rules.
4. If anyone replies, asking you for five questions, you'll ask them.

My answers:

Here's the idea.  Pick a character, any character, a character you love and think deserves a cupcake, for whatever reason.  Or maybe a character you hate and think deserves a cupcake IN THE FACE.  I don't know.

Write about it.

Link me.

[livejournal.com profile] zabbers  and [livejournal.com profile] wicked_socks  are doing this, and I can do it to because it involves making shit up!

Name a character and I'll tell you three (or more) facts about them from my own personal pseudo-canon.
titusnowl: (gonzo)
Leave a comment and I'll give you a letter. Then you list 10 things you like starting with that letter. Post them in your journal and give out new letters to your commenters in turn.

my letter is L:

Libraries.  They're like banks, but full of books!  And unlike banks, you can borrow as many as you want and not pay interest!
Lucksmiths, The. They are such an adorable band
Liquor.  Oh my sweet sweet alcohol
Languages.  Whether I speak them or not, I like words and languages and the relationships between different tongues and so on and so forth.
Love.  Because doesn't everybody like that?
Lunar landings. NOT A HOAX
Lippy little bastards.  Snark!
Lexington Avenue at 22nd Street.  CHRYSLER BUILDING HURRAH

yeah "love" is kind of a copout so how about Law, Jude?
titusnowl: (bond)
I made a "Dear Sister" parody
titusnowl: (romance)
So you open up all your music in media player, and put it on shuffle, and you write down what is playing for each noted track, and you don't try to act cool by cheating, and (this is the tricky part) you try to make it be a story.

The Soundtrack to My Life )
titusnowl: (1790s naval reading)
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 23.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next three sentences in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

The nearest "book" is a small pamphlet: The Pocket Diary for Physicists 2006-2007, from the Particle Data Group, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab.  Why I have this thing I do not know.  I am not a physicist.  It doesn't really count for the meme, though, as its pages aren't numbered in sequential order.

Next closest book would be a tie between Modern Manners and Social Forms, the 1889 etiquette manual, and the second half of my Raymond Chandler omnibus.  Always eager to go above and beyond, I'll give you both.

Always respond to a greeting in the same spirit in which it is tendered.
In her own house a lady cordially greets any one brought to her by a mutual friend, usually extending her hand.
After being introduced to a lady, a gentleman must always wait for her to bow first.

I shook cigarette ash out of the window and he turned abruptly and sat down at a desk.  His double-handled bag was on the desk in front of him.  He sat rigidly, drumming on the desk beside the bag.
