roadrunnertwice: Rebecca on treadmill. (Text: "She's a ROCKET SCIENTIST from the SOUTH POLE with FIFTY EXES?") (Rocket scientist (Bitter Girl))

My friend Nagisa posted this meme on Facebook and I just about died. You start typing each sentence of a dating profile on your phone's keyboard, then use its predictions to fill in the rest.

My name is Nick and I just remembered that I was a little kid.

My age is not too small.

I live in Portland but I still love you.

I was born and I forgot about it.

My body is just so hungry.

I am looking for something that is not the only thing.

I enjoy playing with the best.

My ideal partner is the one that has been able to work on the other side.

My turn ons are on point but I'm not even gonna.

Oh god, it's back and it's mutated.

That meme where you pick up the first book next to you, flip to page 45, and use the first sentence as a summary of your love life:

Well, depending on how you define "sentence..."

1 - Go to a random wikipedia article—The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 - Go to "Random quotations"—The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

3 - Go to flickr's "explore the last seven days"—Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 - Use Photoshop, MS Paint, or similar to put it all together.

5 - Post it with this text. (Tag people or don't; y'know, whatevs.)

Oh hey, that one book meme is back. It generally takes about a year to circle back around to me, and someday I will look through my archives and try to figure out its actual period.

1) Grab the nearest book.
2) Turn to page 56.
3) Go to the fifth line.
4) Post it with these instructions.
5) Don't get your favorite book, or the most intellectual, get the closest.

"The term may also be applied to instrumental movements in arioso style, as in Beethoven's Piano Sonata op. 110." —and see, this year I got lucky; the Harvard Dictionary of Music was just inches closer to me than the Earthbound player's guide.

  • Take a picture of yourself right now.
  • Don’t change your clothes.
  • Don’t fix your hair
  • Just take a picture.
  • Post that picture with no editing. (Except maybe to get the image size down to something reasonable. Don’t go posting an eight megapixel image.)
  • Include these instructions.

Amazingly enough, that's the panel right before this icon.

You scored as Stuart. You are Stuart, partner and co-parent with bi-dyke Sparrow. You believe that values need to be backed up with action, which can make you a bit impulsive at times. Make sure to budget time and money in order to afford the winter-length utili-kilts and Air America Radio shirts you've had your eyes on.

In 2007, 2ce resolves to...
Lose ten dumpsters by March.
Get back in contact with some old rpgs.
Keep my technobabble clean.
Spend more time with my goggles.
Ask my boss for a wmcn.
Give up hiking.

Get your own New Year's Resolutions:

I accidentally gave up hiking this year, and I think I managed to lose a dumpster while I was in Olympia. Not sure my boss knows much about college radio. And sorry, folks, but my technobabble is only getting dirtier from here on out. But the rest of that seems pretty doable! (h/t [ profile] vaulted_eel)

Ignoring the part about ingrained pessimism, that's actually a pretty good card for me right now. I think of the Hanged Man as being the card of presque vu, and for good or ill, that's where I've been since June. Maybe longer. I'll come down soon enough, I'm sure; hanging is starting to get kind of old.

This reminds me, I haven't done a reading for a long time. Probably because I wasn't in any position to use anything it could have revealed.

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: North Central

"North Central" is what professional linguists call the Minnesota accent. If you saw "Fargo" you probably didn't think the characters sounded very out of the ordinary. Outsiders probably mistake you for a Canadian a lot.

Okay, here's a fun one:

Y'all remember True Porn Clerk Tales? Ali... can't remember her last name, but anyway, she was a popular proto-blogger. Back before CMS software got ubiquitous, she'd repurposed some bulletin board 'ware into a personal blog where she talked about all sorts of stuff relating to her job as a video store clerk at some joint with a massive porn selection. Ended up adapting it into a This American Life spot? Yeah, you remember it.

Anyway, one of the posts that had nothing to do with porn was about the clerks' pasttime of Shuffle. They had this 5-disc changer hooked up to the store PA, and they played this game where one person got to pick all five discs at once and put it on shuffle. The competition was to choose the most... well, actually, it was never all that clear. "Offputting" would score you points, as would "unexpectedly appropriate" or "fuckin' hilarious." I doubt there were any formal rules. I can't remember Ali's weapon of choice, but I know it involved Aqua. ("I'm a Barbie girl? In a Barbie world?" Yeah, you remember that, too.)

ANYWAY, the point being. I know that it's 2006 now, and everyone lives out of their iTunes, but, like the proverbial Desert Island, your hand in a throwdown, winner-take-all game of Five Disc Shuffle says a lot about you. And I suspect most music fans have at least one combo that no one else in their lives could possibly be expected to tolerate.

What's yours? Get in here and fight it out, or spread it around on your own journal.
You can play fast and loose with the specificity or the number of discs; the only rule is that it has to be a shuffle you would actually listen to, but which you know better than to inflict on anyone else.

Mine? Well.
Jethro Tull -- Too Old to Rock 'N' Roll: Too Young to Die!

I know everyone here has at least one "It's all going to be all right" / "VICTORY!" / "go us!" song. You put it on when you need that last boost of energy, when you just made a big win somewhere in your life, when you feel like your luck can't possibly go bad. This is one of mine... what're yours?

Well, okay.

And I think we have a winner, AKA an ideal spot for the Interweb Stealinator such that "my" access doesn't constantly cut out. Now I just need some cord guides to keep it out of the way of the dishes rack. (And maybe a mini surge protector, just because funny things happen sometimes. And by "funny" I mean "expensive.")

Also: first load of laundry I've done since the fifth of March = hurray.

Heyo, meme. )

This has been bouncing around places, so:

You can get one song from my iTunes—pick a number between 1 and 4672.

If it's a podcast or something lame like that, I'll just increment it until I find something real.

ETA: Also, the last 100 or so are j-pop or j-rock of some species or another. So if you don't dig, that's where not to look.
