Shuffle Meme

breaktime! stolen from cuzzin. this is fun, and somewhat funny yet apt if applied to real life.

The rules:
Put your music player of choice on shuffle
and answer these questions with the first line(s) of the song.

1. If you were to see a ghost, you'd scream... "We had a good thing; it was a blast." -- Dinner Lady Arms by The Darkness. Not exactly a nice thing to scream to a ghost.

2. If you were to write an autobiography, you'd call it...I am Doll Eyes Doll Mouth Doll Legs" --- Doll Parts by Hole. What a morbid biography.

3. You get a letter from a secret admirer that reads...Nakanaide soko ni wa hora, kakegae no nai taisetsu na mono" --- Taisetsu na Mono by Road of Major. (WTF.)

4. In a job interview you're always sure to tell the manager... "You belong to the gang, and you say you can't break away" -- O Valencia by The Decemberists. Not something good to tell to the manager.

5. When you arrive at the pearly gates in the sky you say..."Ano'ng balita sa radyo at TV? Ganun pa rin, kumakapa sa dilim." -- Hallelujah by Bamboo. That's something interesting to tell that guy with the rooster. Do they even have TVs up there?

6. If you were a superhero, your catch phrase would be...So you sailed away, into a grey sky morning..." --Best I Ever Had by Vertical Horizon. It sounds like something I'll sing to a superhero, though.
 
7. When somebody offers you drugs you decline by saying... "(Turn around) Every now and then I get a little bit lonely and you never comin' round." -- Total Eclipse of the HEart by Bonnie Tyler. Doesn't sound like I'm declining.

8. While stuck in traffic you read a strange bumper sticker that states... "The day you move I'm probably gone to explode." -- Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt by We Are Scientist. Yep, it's strange and kind of scary if you're stuck in traffic.

9. Hmm...these are some feelings you should really keep to yourself... "Siento que me tocas sin ver, que te apareces detrás de la pared." ---Dime Ven by Motel. Yeah, I guess I should keep these Spanish feelings to myself.

10. When a bully insults you, your comeback is... "What is Love?! Baby don't hurt me, don't hurt me, no more!" ---What is Love? by Haddaway. Try ko nga next time, feeling ko mas bubugbugin ako eh. XD

11. When you win a game of ping pong you shout... "And it came to me then that every plan is a tiny prayer to Father Time." --- What Sarah Said by Death Cab for Cutie. Ang OA ko naman, nanalo lang ng ping pong nagpapaka pilosopo na.

12. So what exactly makes you so awesome :]... "Baby baby baby, I'm tired of trying to change your mind." ----I'm Not Gonna Cry by Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings. Does that really make me awesum?

13. After making out, you tell your sweetheart... "Comin' out of my cage and I've been doing just fine gotta gotta be down because I want it all." --- Mr. Brightside by The Killers. Uh. Not exactly a nice make-out line, but oh if I could be as cute as the girl in the video.

14. If you're the valedictorian of your school, you open your valedictory speech with..."Imagine there's no heaven." --- Imagine by John Lennon. I guess kung tamad ako't gusto kong i-corrupt ang batch ko, kakantahan ko na lang sila ng Imagine. Hehehe.

15. Describe your best friend... "Insane!" -- Space Sonic by ELLEGARDEN. Hahaha!

16. When you're angry, you like to scream.... "Oow, friends say it's fine, friends say it's good..." 20th Century Boy by Drain sth. Uhh.

17. What you say to ask for forgiveness from someone you've hurt: "There's a lot of things I understand, and there's a lot of things that I don't wanna know." --- I Think God Can Explain by Splender. I think I'll say this next time, it's a pretty nice line.

18. How you express your feelings to your crush... "And so, we're here again." ---Loveless by Kittie. ARGH.

19. How you introduce yourself to people... "When I'm lyin' in your bed, play the motions through my head..." ---Smile in Your Sleep by Silverstein. Nice way to introduce myself to people, by lying in their bed.

20. When asking for directions, you start the question with... "There's something about that look in your eyes..." Echo by Incubus. There's something about that look in your eyes... that makes me think that you know which way I should drive! XD

Because I'm freaking honest, dammit

1. Honestly, what color is your underwear?
* White, with blue, yellow and green flowers on it.

2. Honestly, whats on your mind right now?
* I'm pissed off that I'm not too good at being gangsta while playing GTA: San Andreas, and mainly because it's so fucking hard driving those damned cars and those fucking cops are pretty swell at showing up at the wrong times!

3. Honestly, what are you doing right now?
* Reading xxxHolic, waiting until I get sleepy so I can sleep.

4. Honestly, what did you do today?
* - went to Church
- went to the reception of a baptism (in some sort of old country club with a pool)
- took photos of pipes and trees in that club
- was forced to read fortunes with playing cards (by my own mother, no less)
- ate a lot
- downloaded/read a ton of shoujo one-shot mangas
- jumped rope
- played GTA San Andreas (massive fail)

5. Honestly, do you think you are attractive?
* Um. I want to say yes, but somehow I'm hesitating.

6. Honestly, have you done something bad today?
* Reading fortunes is bad, isn't it? Especially if you do it with playing cards that were used more than once for games. And even more especially when you do it after church.
Oh yeah, I also made fun of that guy who looks like a waiter in Church. D: I think I'm on the verge of growing fangs or something.

7. Honestly, do you watch disney channel?
* I can't, although I want to. (I don't watch TV anymore.)

8. Honestly, are you jealous of someone right now?
* Yes.

9. Honestly, what makes you happy most of the time?
* It's a latent sort of happiness: being alive, feeling alive.

10. Honestly, do you bite your nails?
* No, but I have a bad habit of cutting them too short.

11. Honestly, what is your mood right now?
* Frustrated. (Stupid cops! Stupid cars! GUUUH)

12.Honestly, have you had an eating disorder?
* Nope. But I'm not a healthy eater either so.

13. Honestly, do you want to see someone this very minute?
* A friend would be fine but no-one in particular.

14. Honestly, do you have a deep dark secret?
* I have many.

16. Honestly, do you hate someone right now?
* I think it's growing slowly into hate. (I wish I could stop it.)

17. Honestly, who/what do you want to hug right now?
* Honestly, no-one. More like I wanna be hugged.

18. Honestly, are you loyal?
* Depends. I have my bad habits.

19. Honestly, are you in denial?
* If I admit that I'm in denial, then it's not really denial. If I deny being in denial, it could go both ways: that is, I can assess my honesty right now, but either you and I or you and I both can choose not to believe in what I have to say about my own honesty. I could be very good at denial if I do not say that I am in denial; then again, I could be speaking closer to purity and honesty than usual. More importantly, denial is never sure of itself--it is a lie, and lies are thick, tough transluscent webs that can capture you one moment and dissolve like bubbles, float like ash the next, leaving you a curious, befuddled heap of human on your patch of earth.

... more to the point: I don't think I'm in denial, but a few (slightly qualified) people say that I'm very good at denial.

20. Honestly, wouldn't you rather be having sex right now?
* No.

21. Honestly, who is your best friend?
* Honestly: I don't have anyone who I can call a best friend. I'm not sad about it, though.
After all, there are many with whom I can entrust my life.

22. Honestly, have you ever consumed alcohol?
* Yes. Not on a regular basis though

23. Honestly, do you like someone?
* Yes. (You'll never guess who.)

24. Honestly, does anyone like you?
* A lot of people like me in a platonic way. And my mommy and daddy and brothers and sister love me very much. I'm sure of that at least.

25. Honestly, did you answer all these questions honestly?
* With the best of my capability! (I even looked at my damned underwear for this damned questionnaire.)

Writer's Block: The Wrath of Ohrwurm

German has a word for everything, like ohrwurm. Translated literally as "earworm" in English, it's the word for songs that get stuck in your head and won't go away. What earworm of a song do you most dread burrowing into your head?
Lately, it's "I'll Make A Man Out Of You" from the Mulan soundtrack.

(To Be a man)
We must be swift as the coursing river
(To Be a man)
With all the force of a great typhoon
(To Be a man)
With all the strength of a raging fire
Mysterious as the dark side of the moon!!!!!

But in my head, I always mix up the coursing river, the great typhoon, and the raging fire. I can't ever figure out what comes first and next. And the adjectives just fly over my head. o_o

I always get the "dark side of the mooooooooooon!!!!" right, though. XD

The bad part about this song is that I start with "Let's get down to business, to defeat the Huns!" and end at the part where the fat guy's running because all I know is his line, "I'm never gonna catch my breath..." And then the song fades to "you're not suited for the rage of war, so pack up! Go home! Yer through! How could I make a man out of youuuuuu?!"

And the song kind of never ends because I get frustrated that I don't know the rest of the song :|

It's a great song to listen to while studying for exams, though. It has a "GUTS DA ZE" effect to it. Imagine me reading an Anatomy atlas and 5 ft. of transcriptions and poking things at the gross lab and studying how the damn kidneys work, while this plays in the background:

Must be swift as a coursing river!!!
blablablabla as a great typhoon!
lalalalalala raging fire!
Mysterious as the dark side of the mooooon!

these are the eyes of disarray

today is 07-07, and so i made a wish.

i forfeit that embarrassing wish for this one:

if only i could think more of other people's feelings when i act... if i could do that, then maybe i'd know how to treat them a little better. i am tired of suffering the consequences of being the insensitive jerk.

so please, for once, let me have that.

You Are 25% Left Brained, 75% Right Brained

The left side of your brain controls verbal ability, attention to detail, and reasoning.
Left brained people are good at communication and persuading others.
If you're left brained, you are likely good at math and logic.
Your left brain prefers dogs, reading, and quiet.

The right side of your brain is all about creativity and flexibility.
Daring and intuitive, right brained people see the world in their unique way.
If you're right brained, you likely have a talent for creative writing and art.
Your right brain prefers day dreaming, philosophy, and sports.


I thought I was a pretty logical person myself.

Ah well.

Hide and Seek (Imogen Heap)

where are we?
what the hell is going on?
the dust has only just begun to fall
crop circles in the carpet
sinking feeling

spin me round again
and rub my eyes,
this can't be happening
when busy streets a mess with people
would stop to hold their heads - heavy

hide and seek
trains and sewing machines
all those years
they were here first

oily marks appear on walls
where pleasure moments hung before the takeover,
the sweeping insensitivity of this still life

hide and seek
trains and sewing machines (oh, you won't catch me around here)
blood and tears (hearts)
they were here first

Mmmm what you say,
Mmmm that you only meant well?
well of course you did
Mmmm what you say,
Mmmm that it's all for the best?
of course it is
Mmmm what you say?
Mmmm that it's just what we need
you decided this
Mmmm what you say?
Mmmm what did she say?

ransom notes keep falling out your mouth
mid-sweet talk, newspaper word cut outs
speak no feeling no i don't believe you
you don't care a bit,
you don't care a bit

Reading the lyrics versus listening to the song itself, and being subjected to the haunting chorus of one voice lamenting over the loss of the other, maybe.

Really different.

Brrrr. Made me shiver a bit, esp. considering the possibility of it happening.

All I wanna say, is you're the satellite, in my life...

:)

(If you're familiar with the song, you'll know that I ain't in-love, despite the connotations.)

Lukas Rossi won Rockstar: Supernova! Yay! :D

Honestly didn't expect him to win, although he was my favourite among the four. His song Headspin got me. I like everything about it, melody and semi-emo-ish lyrics and all. Ahluvet.

Watch SPIT.

Silly People's Improv Theatre, baby!

You have to admire people who, despite a lack of structure or conventional preparation and scripts in their skits, can make you laugh like a hyena on prozac.

I'm still amazed with what I saw last night. :) Galeng! Would love to watch them again.

Top 10 acousti-fied songs

I'm making lists in my head nowadays. I don't like congesting my head with worthless information, so let me take this list into existence (ehh???). I might be recommending them, but I've learned that my tastes in music are not those to be patterned after. Haha.

10.) Lifehouse - Somebody Else's Song
(I've been listening to this song for years, and still my sister and I can't be so sure if this is really Lifehouse. The pirated CD I got it from says that The Calling sang it. So kids, say no to piracy!)

9.) John Mayer - No Such Thing
(okay, so it's not "acoustified" in that it was actually acoustic when John Mayer first recorded it. I like this better than the final version though. Ano na ba nangyari kay John Mayer???)

8.) Sponge Cola - Jeepney
(the one they used for their music video. I quite liked that, although I don't quite like the video itself. :-S)

7.) Agape - Mine You Will Be
(... guilty pleasure? I like the girl's voice here.)

6.) Nirvana - Polly
(the melody is simple, but I got hooked on this song because of the lyrics.)

5.) Deftones feat. Incubus and Adam Sandler - Be Quiet and Drive
(this is amazing. I actually like it better than the original noisier song by Deftones. The recording is incredibly messy though.)

4.) Smashing Pumpkins - Dancing in the Moonlight
(I freakin' thought it was Jeff Buckley. Soooo stupid of me to mix up his voice and Billy Corgan's voice. In any case, this is still fantastic. I'm not sure how it justifies the original by Thin Lizzy though.)

3.) Tori Amos - Smells Like Teen Spirit
(wha-wha-whaaaaa? Yes, it's quite true, Tori Amos covered it. Just a piano and her voice. It's amazing.)

2.) Incubus - Pardon Me
(... not just Brandon Boyd. Mike Einziger too. :-) One of the best acoustified rock songs ever.)

1.) A Perfect Circle - The Hollow
(Man! I love Paz Lenchantin! And the rest of APC. They did a wonderful job of this song :-D)
