First thing you do, you set your iPod (or computer music list, what the ever) to shuffle.

Then you ask the following questions, and hit 'next song'. The title of the song will be the answer to your question.

Question: What do you think of me, playlist?
Answer: "Waiting for the Man"-David Bowie and Lou Reed (so you think I need to grow up?)

Question: Will I have a happy life?
Answer: "Thunderball"-Tom Jones (Mm, good and sleazy!)

Question: What do my friends really think of me?
Answer: "Take a Chance on Me"-ABBA (I should be more open with my friends?)

Question: Do people secretly lust after me?
Answer: "White Rabbit"-Jefferson Airplane (so only people on drugs secretly harbour feelings for my peener?)

Question: What should I do with my life?
Answer: "Boom I fucked Your Boyfriend"-Gillette (Once again, playlist, you think I should be a gigolo.)

Question: Why must life be so full of pain?
Answer: "Soccer Practice"-Johnny McGovern (*snickers* Only with the straight boys does soccer practice lead to pain.)

Question: How can I maximize my pleasure during sex?
Answer: "Sweet Surrender"-Sarah MacLachlan (Oh, I get to be the submissive?)

Question: Will I ever have children?
Answer: "It's the End of the World as We Know It"-REM (Is that a polite way of saying 'G-d forbid'?)

Question: Will I die happy?
Answer: "Justified and Ancient"-KLF (I get to die a secret Master of the Universe?)

Question: Can you give me some advice?
Answer: "Don't Stop Believing"-Journey (wow, that's actually good advice for once. Who are you and what did you do with my playlist?)

Question: What do you think happiness is?
Answer: "Running down a Dream"-Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (Actually yes. Although I find the pursuit to be better than the catching.)

Question: What's my favorite fetish?
Answer: "Even flow"-Pearl Jam (sounds like a vague reference to water sports. which... just EWWW.)

And since i have the playlist up and running anyway....

1. Put your iTunes, Windows Media Player, etc. on shuffle.
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
3. You must write that song name down no matter how silly it sounds.

IF SOMEONE SAYS "YOU'RE HOT" YOU SAY?
"Rhythm is a Dancer"-Snap (And then I snap my fingers and wiggle my ass.)

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR LIFE?

HOW DO YOU FEEL TODAY?

WHAT DO YOU OFTEN THINK ABOUT?
"If It Be Your Will"-Leonard Cohen (well, yeah, I am getting more contemplative the longer winter goes on.)

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE PERSON WHO LIKES YOU?
"Enjoy the Silence"-Depeche Mode (This is true of most of the men I've dated. I almost want to become a dom so I have an excuse to gag them.)

WHAT DOES YOUR BEST FRIEND ALWAYS SAY TO YOU?
"Your Mama Don't Dance"-Loggins and Messina (And Your daddy don't rock and roll.)

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GROW UP?
"Everlong"-Foo Fighters (At the risk of WTMI, I'm uite pleased with my endowments as it is. Or are you trying to say I should be on viagra 24/7, playlist?)

That's the funniest one of these I've seen. Between your music lists and your retorts, it becomes a conversation!

Well, I like doing it that way. allows me to laugh.

About 10 years ago, I used a divination technique where I asked the radio a question and specified how many songs before I wanted an answer. Problem was every time I did it, WTUE would inevitably play Ozzy's "I Don't Know".

Too funny! And too coincidental also. Obviously you were asking the wrong oracle.
10th-Dec-2008 11:52 pm (UTC)
That was kind of my opinion. Then again, Why I was asking the "Classic/Hard rock" oracle anything remains to be determined.

Hmmmm.

Boredom?

Well that or the lack of a good radio station I could pick up in the boonies while on delivery.

Plus, asking the NPR elemental is a bit silly. He seems to be more focused on foreign soil than personal issues.

Er ... NPR?
11th-Dec-2008 12:18 am (UTC)
National Public Radio.

I listened to it for news and the occasional Classical music fix.

Oh, ta. In Australia we have the ABC - Australian Broadcasting Commission. Which is very good actually. They do TV as well as radio and it's practically the only channel I ever watch; they have most of the good stuff.

Over here, we get PBS...Public Broadcasting System for TV. They generally run educational programming during the day and science/history stuff at night.

And they also run Mystery!, which I watch just for the Edward Gorey animation at the beginning. Unless they're doing Agatha Christie or Sherlock Holmes, at which point I devour the show.

My ex used to leave it on at night, which lead to strange dreams about the Australian Bower Bird and Brush Turkey or the mating habits of elephants.
