99 bottles of blog on the wall, 99 bottles of bloggg...

This meme stolen from the ladies at Snarkland, who will be totally to blame if I ever take up knitting. What you do is put your iTunes/MP3 player on random and answer these questions.

How does the world see me?
"China Girl" - David Bowie - "I'm feeling tragic, like I'm Marlon Brando...", "she says, oh baby, just you shut your mouth". Well, there is the matter of the slanty eyes.

Will I have a happy life?
"I'm the Man Who Loves You" - Wilco

"All I can be is a busy sea of spinning wheels
And hands the feel for stones to throw
And feet the run but come back home
It make no difference, ever known
Make no difference, ever known to me" - Sounds busy but dreary to me. Heh!

What do my friends really think of me?
"Get Up Stand Up" Bob Marley "Half the story had never been told.... get up, stand up...don't give up the fight...Most people think...great god will come from the sky... and make everybody feel high...Life is your right, don't give up the fight...You can fool some people sometimes, but you can't fool all the people all the time" - As a motivational speaker?

Do people secretly lust after me?
“Everything in Its Right Place" - Radiohead (live version) "Yesterday I woke up sucking a lemon..there are two colors in my head..." Well, if everythings' in its right place, I guess that is a plus.

How can I make myself happy?
“The Celibate Life" The Shins - I'm going to have a hard time explaining this one to S. you led no celibate life no skirt while chemicals danced on your head.
you stole the keys to this ride and your fables are falling tonight.

because of your struggle to make them.
their taste for your past time is fading
remember the girls in the middle are always the first to fall off.

What should I do with my life?
“Sweet Child O' Mine" - Guns n' Roses - Smile? Not cry?

Will I ever have children?
"Bells Ring" Mazzy Star "Nobody's out to buy your story, nobody wants to know your reason why" - Contrary to the years I've spent fielding this question, no one really cares.

What is some good advice for me?
“Neverunderstand" Jesus & Mary Chain. "Not wishing to hide but you just can't see me, I tell you the truth but you don't believe me"

How will I be remembered?
"Beyond the Sea (La Mer)" - the instrumental version by Django Reinhardt. Perfect - silently and with beautiful, ocean-related music. Favorite lines, "No more sailin' …So long sailin' …Bye, bye sailin'...Move on out, captain … So long, ensign …"

What is my signature song?
"Ziggy Stardust" - Bowie (again!) "Screwed up eyes, screwed-down hairdo" ?

What do I think my current theme song is?
“Castles Made of Sand- Jimi Hendrix "Castles made of sand...fall into the sea...eventually..."

What does everyone else think my current theme song is?
“Mambo Swing" Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, " Swingin through the jungle -I have sailed the seven seas - King of the monkies - And nothing bothers me" Throw me a bannana, will you?

What song will play at my funeral?
“Come Away With Me" Nora Jones, "I will write you a song...come away with me. I wanna walk with you on a cloudy day..." Let's hope not.

What type of men / women do I like?
“I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" U2 "I have climbed highest mountains...only to be with you." Apparently, no one.

What is my day going to be like?
“Killer MC" ...." - Wyclef Jean "F-R-E-S-H...that's fresh!"

That is just too random. I'd get frustrated trying to make sense of it.

Hey Tim -

Are you still with Lumiere? I just finally looked you up - I LOVE your work and have already got them in my database. Funny, huh?
