Jumpers (see below) - a musical meme

Before I get to the heart of the post, we (finally) have a new movie review on MovieGrenade. This time complete with boobs! Go check it out.

So I got tagged again, this time by Paige. Another one of them Canadian ladies. See...they are everywhere! It goes a little something like this:

1. Put your iTunes/ music player on Shuffle (use a stereo or a list of your favorite songs if you don’t have an iPod)
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
3. YOU MUST WRITE THAT SONG NAME DOWN NO MATTER WHAT(this is in capital letters, so it is very serious. No hiding your show tunes, folks!)

After you’ve answered all of the questions, tag 5 other people and then let them know they’ve been tagged to do the meme themselves!

(OK...I have to make one thing clear. I omitted all Jimmy Buffett from my answers unless it wound up being from Havana Daydreamin' - my favorite of his albums. So I did forward past some Buffett, because if I didn't then about half the answers would have been his songs. Everything else is honest. And there was one really weird moment in here. Incredibly weird, ridiculously weird, almost "he had to fake that shit" weird. You will see. - Earl)

IF SOMEONE SAYS “IS THIS OKAY” YOU SAY?
"Tiny Dancer" - Elton John. Actually, I say "Tony Danza". It's very confusing.

WHAT WOULD BEST DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONALITY?
"Words and Guitars" - Sleater-Kinney. I don't play guitar, but ok.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE IN A GUY/GIRL?
"Me-Jane" - PJ Harvey. Me-Tarzan. Hmm? A little role-play would be kinda nice.

HOW DO YOU FEEL TODAY?
"Awfully Quiet" - The Mighty Mighty Bosstones. There are times I do, but today wasn't one of them. Too bad. The title really fit the question. First one. Yay!

WHAT IS YOUR LIFE’S PURPOSE?
"The Dirty Jobs" - The Who. I'm a cleaner for the Mob. Well, not really...no. This one makes no sense.

WHAT IS YOUR MOTTO?
"Willin' " - Little Feat. Not really a motto, per se. More of a mission statement.

WHAT DO YOUR FRIENDS THINK OF YOU?
"100%" - Sonic Youth. That's right, mother-fuckers! I'm 100%, er, um, me!

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR PARENTS?
"My Life" - Mary J. Blige. Um, I think this is one of Gia's songs. Really.

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT VERY OFTEN?
"Havana Daydreamin' " - Jimmy Buffett. Hey...he showed up. And it kinda fits. I'm a big day-dreamer. Usually has to do with boobs not Cuba, but whatever.

WHAT IS 2+2?
"Left of Center" - Suzanne Vega. I actually laughed when this one showed up. Funny answer even though I forward past it every time it pops up on my iPod. Been meaning to delete it forever.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR BEST FRIEND?
"Is This Love" - Whitesnake. Another one of Gia's songs. Really.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE PERSON YOU LIKE?
"Rub 'til it Bleeds" - PJ Harvey. It hardly ever gets that far. Well sometimes. OK, she likes it rough. Too much info?

WHAT IS YOUR LIFE STORY?
"The Metro" - Berlin. Can't even think of anything funny to say here.

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GROW UP?
"Helpless Dancer" - The Who. I never wanted to be helpless or a dancer, but weird that the answers keep fitting the questions.

WHAT DO YOU THINK WHEN YOU SEE THE PERSON YOU LIKE?
"Ooo Child" - Five Starships. Great song, but I certainly don't think of it when I see Gia.

WHAT DO YOUR PARENTS THINK OF YOU?
"Oh, Lonesome Me" - Neil Young. Hope not.

WHAT WILL YOU DANCE TO AT YOUR WEDDING?
"Romeo and Juliet" - Dire Straits. OK...this is the weird one. I saw the question and thought to myself "Wouldn't it be weird if Romeo and Juliet came up?" Gia and I, from our first date, said that if and when we ever got married that "Romeo and Juliet" by Dire Straits would be one of our wedding songs. I know, lyrically it's not really a "wedding" type o' song. It's more about regret and love lost and maybe getting back together, but its still a beautiful song and one of my favorites. One of Gia's too! With that I mind, I hit the "next" button and BAM...it happened! I'm not shitting you! Something truly cosmic going on here.
Sidenote: I actually think that I am a bit psychic or something, but only in one or two situations. I often call home runs while watching Yankee games right before they happen. I don't do it often, but when I do a home run always follows. The other situation is that I can often predict the next song to play on the radio, or in this case, my iPod on shuffle. I do it all the time. Wish it pertained to the lottery.


WHAT WILL THEY PLAY AT YOUR FUNERAL?
"Simple Man" - Lynyrd Skynyrd. Makes a little sense. Always considered myself to be a fairly simple guy in a complicated world. And Gia joined a local band for one song down in Key West to sing it to me once. Nice!

WHAT IS YOUR HOBBY/INTEREST?
"So What'cha Want?" - The Beastie Boys. Huh?

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST SECRET?
"Italian Leather Sofa" - Cake. That's right fuckers! Italian Leather Sofa. Try and figure that shit out!

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR FRIENDS?
"Beercan" - Beck. Another answer that made me laugh out loud. Now I'm not saying my friends drink a lot. Ok, I'll say it...they drink a lot. Funny.

WHAT SHOULD YOU POST THIS AS?
"Jumpers" - Sleater-Kinney. I don't get it, but rules are rules. I'll put this in the post title.

I think I will only tag Slyde, because he is soooo into music. Ha!

PS - Oooh, you have to go check out Spinning Girl on this topic. This is what the internet was created for folks. Holy Kellie Pickler!

I did this an age ago, and would have done it again except you only tagged Slyde. Pffffffffffffffffft.

This made me laugh out loud. (I actually spent the time typing that out... must be the first time in like - years)

B.E. Earl said...

badger - I remember you doing this on your old blog. I never tag anyone, by the way. Just tagged Slyde for the humor of it all.

Liz - LOL.

Slyde said...

wow, you finally got an mp3 player... welcome to the 19th century... next ill work on you getting that fucking tivo!

i will get to this this week, you damn tagger you...

B.E. Earl said...

Um, my iPod was so last year, duh!

And although I won't get TiVo, we do have a DVR through Optimum. Works better than your old TiVo anyway. 2 recordings at one time and all. Hah!

Don't fuck with me about technology. I even played Guitar Hero the other night.

i am the diva said...

Guitar hero rocks the fucking house.

also, we canucks are everywhere!!! Wooo!!

Some of your answers were awesome, and uncanny. As for your psychic abilities...perhaps a little bit of the Law of Attraction is happening there. i often am singing a song, and then turn on the radio and it's playing, or i'll know who's calling me before i pick up the phone (that one was MUCH more impressive BEFORE i got call display...)

B.E. Earl said...

Diva - Guitar hero does rock, but it's really, really hard. Least I thought so. Law of Attraction...I like that.

Paige Stanton said...

Yah! I'm so glad you participated! I sing it "Tony Danza" too! Is that a FRIENDS thing?
