You Asked for It

I have been tagged by Jack. Now let's be honest, what the heck does that mean? I started this blog so as not to be tagged or required to post random inanities about myself, ( or take quizzes, or post lists as a matter of fact but that didn't stop me did it). I have another journal for that kind of stuff and have since I was in high school; with an arcane group but still. This was an escape where I had no friends, and it was good; I liked it that way. OK enough of that. As Bette Midler says: You Got to Have Friends. I am going to do my tagging duty here. I worked again today and as previously mentioned it is taking more of my time than I would like so this makes it easy. Not like MoJo or EW who can crank out their stuff with a certain amount of frequency, creativity, and angst. I will probably give you more than you asked for though so you better read the damn stuff. 1. Total volume of files on my computer � Jesu - I have no idea how to even find out... oh, I think I got it. 28.7 GB 2. Last CD I bought - Bought? As opposed to borrowed, copied and ripped? Beck - Guero 3. Song playing right now on my computer and in my ears loud and clear. The Decemberist - Ask - Live Smith Cover 4) 5 songs I listen to a lot or that mean a lot to me - �Listen to a lot � list changes with my mood but here you go. Listen to a lot and mean a lot separate lists because quite frankly when you tag me you get more than you want or at least exactly what you asked for. Listen to a lot: (could mean lately or always ) 1. Debaser: My favorite Pixies song mainly because of it's indirect inference to un chien Andalusia the best freaky/bizarre film short ( 17 minutes) of all time and if you haven't seen it you should; Luis Bunuel and Salvador Dali�s work in case you are not familiar with it. When I first saw it, thanks to a friend of mine at MICA, there was not much written on it except in fairly esoteric film publications but within the last couple of years all sorts of nouveau cool publications have written on it as if they discovered it. You used to be able to view it in its entirety online now you have to pay for it. 2. God Save the Queen - The Sex Pistols - What can I say? I love the Sex Pistols 3. Dream Life of Rand McNally - Mraz - Java Joes- The only way to listen to him as his studio stuff does suck and he is so much better than that live. If you haven't heard this Java Joes version you have to at least make an attempt to; with Toca Rivera on percussion you can't go wrong with this one, take my word for it. 4. Mr Brightside - The Killers - How can you not love those lyrics? Song keeps me awake while driving. 5. Sitting,Waiting,Wishing - Jack Johnson- Because, quite simply, I love lying back putting my legs up and just listening to Jack Johnson. There are so many things you can do to his music; inclusive of but not limited to, lighting a joint ( fake one of course), and just kicking back, ( if you're into that kind of thing), having real slow sex, ( again if you're into that kind of thing). You get the picture though I am sure; you're all pretty smart I can tell. Mean Something: 1. Flight Test - Flaming Lips A little pop for them but this CD was sent to me by my old boyfriend in twelfth grade with a note saying" the first song sweety , the first song" . Nostalgic to say the least as the whole situation was one where he for some reason thought I was with someone else and wasn't it was just the time had come....still I love this whole CD so I am grateful to him for sending it to me. 2. Run for Your Life - The Beatles - This song means something to me for the same reason and for the same boyfriend. He sent me this song first online initially after the break - up. I laugh now but damn at the time I found it quite annoying. 3. Flower - Liz Phair - For those of you who aren't familiar with this little gem it's alternate title is "Blow Job Queen". In ninth grade we used to sing this at slumber parties. Yes mom and dad this is what your honor roll, potential national merit scholar, student government officer, star athlete, cheerleader, multiple award winning daughters are listening too. Make no mistake on this one. This song therefore holds a place dear to my heart. It is also kind of catchy and you got to love the lyrics; Right? 4. Mony Mony- Tommy James and the Shondelles - First song I ever danced with anyone in public to. 5. Truly Madly Deeply - First slow dance with male in public place. Guy was actually my best friend then and remains one of my best friends to this day. Thanks G. 5) Five people I'm passing this to: Damned if I know.

Alice,

Thanks for the great answers.

I didn't know that about "Debaser." Interesting stuff. I love "Doolittle." That and "Siamese Dream" got me through many late-nite paper-writing binges during high school.

I don't post that often. I only post like 3 or 4 times a week. It just seems like I post a lot because my friend B. manages to crank 1 or 2 posts a week for me.

Trust me, I'm very lazy.

I love your blog, too! I totally agree about the overweight cat-posting bloggers...it's over-done and overly-indulgent.

Thanks for stopping by! :-) I'll add you under my "Friends I Stalk" list.
