Courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] themadone, I've got one of those "five things" memes to deal with. As usual, the routine is that if you fancy having a crack at it, you comment below and I fire five things at you to witter on about, most likely drawn from your LJ interests (Yes, this is an LJ thing - if you're seeing it on facebook then you're getting it second hand!). LJ's always been a bit rubbish at sending me notifications, so I'll try to keep and eye on things to spot any comments.

In the meantime, [livejournal.com profile] themadone picked out the following for me...

fog, gummiknoedel, bad movies, precognitive dreams, perceptual reality )

The time has come around for me to post up some answers... so here they are:

Here are the lyrics, coupled with their songs )

Put your music player on random.
Post the first line from the first 20 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Let everyone guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Mark the songs when someone guesses correctly.

I'm ignoring instrumentals (20), songs with only one word in the lyrics (1), songs where the first line is exactly the title (2), songs where the lyrics are so incomprehensible that nobody's every worked out what they actually are (4) or "Holy fuck that's not a song, it's a SHODAN sample!" (1).

here are the lyrics )

Grab the nearest book.
Find the 5th sentence on page 23.
Append it to the paragraph below.
Append your name to the list below of people who have contributed to the paragraph.
Post the result to your LJ.

Far too big a paragraph )

I mightl do a proper update in the near future, but things have been pretty hectic, so I might just summarise briefly and move on... In the meantime, here's a quick book-meme:

"What we have here is the top 106 books most often marked as "unread" by LibraryThing’s users. As in, they sit on the shelf to make you look smart or well-rounded. Bold the ones you've read, underline the ones you read for school, italicize the ones you started but didn't finish. Here's the twist: add (*) beside the ones you liked and would (or did) read again or recommend. Even if you read 'em for school in the first place."

the list )

Instructions:

1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The article title is the name of your band.

2. http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four words of the very last quotation is the title of your album.

3. http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/
The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4.Use your graphics programme of choice to throw them together, and post the result.

My results... )

RP Character Meme )
the_eggwhite: (Default)
So, I saw a meme going around again, and thought I'd have a laugh and see what it came up with. It's one of those "next X things that winamp plays when set to random" things, and the idea is that you plug them into a template to give the tracklist of a soundtrack CD of your life.

So I had a crack at it for a laugh to see what it turned up. If the result was the soundtrack to my life, my life would be a) Pretty damned bleak and b) Pretty messed up.

The Tracklist )

About some of the songs )

Stolen shamelessley from [livejournal.com profile] karohemd...

Go to Wikipedia and put in your birth date. Don't put in the year. Post in your LJ with three neat/important events, two births, and two deaths!

Events:
1933 - The Blaine Act ends Prohibition in the United States. (They ended prohibition for my birthday! Huzzah! I sense a party theme for sometime in the future!)
1958 - Pope Pius XII declares Saint Clare of Assisi (1193~1253) the patron saint of television
1959 - The first weather satellite, Vanguard 2, was launched to measure cloud-cover distribution.

The shared birthdays of shame:
1953 - Norman Pace, British actor and comic (one half of Hale and Pace)
1981 - Paris Hilton, American actress and heiress (Aiee! The horror!)
(There were remarkably few decent births listed. Which is odd, as I know there's a fair few, I just can't remember who they are!)

Deaths:
197 - Clodius Albinus, Roman usurper (killed in battle)
1609 - Ferdinando I de' Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany (b. 1549)

I got tagged for this by [livejournal.com profile] majic13. Blame him.

Remove the blog in the top spot from the following list and bump everyone up one place. Then add your blog to the bottom slot, like so:

  • Flailing in the Surf Again
  • Free_dragon
  • Cryx
  • majic13
  • Eggwhite

Next select five people to tag:
Gah! I hate tagging folks... It applies pressure on folks to do things. So I'm not going to. Comment here if you're going to do this after me, and I'll add in a retroactive tag.

Here's the meme... )

What the hell... Everybody else is doing it...

Post a comment with one or more questions for a LARP character of mine.

The responses will be IC but will not be fair game for further RP.
