Since spuenk posted this, I just thought I had to pass it on...

Awesomely disturbing.

PS, come ON, you guys have only gotten two of 20 of my trivia questions. I'm starting to feel like no one likes me *pout*

Because I never post anything unless someone else has posted it first, here we go again :)

Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random. (I chose a special iTunes playlist I made that selects from my highly-rated songs to filter out the weird stuff I don't listen to much, haha.)
Step 2: Post a line from the first 20 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Post and let everyone ("everyone" meaning two people...) you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 5: No cheating. I'll give you fairly long clues though since my stuff is kind of obscure :)

1. "And if you go / and leave me here on my own / then I'll wait for you / yeah..."

2. "I don't know where the sunbeams end and the starlights begin / It's all a mystery / And I don't know how a man decides what's right for his own life. / It's all a mystery... / 'Cause I'm a man, not a boy / And there are things you can't avoid"

3. "What if this whole crusade's a charade / And behind it all there's a price to be paid / For the blood which we dine / Justified in the name / Of the Holy and the Divine" Nine Inch Nails - The Hand that Feeds

4. "I lie awake / I've gone to ground / I'm watching porn / In my hotel dressing gown"

5. "quaking leaves and broken light / shifting skin the coming night / the bearers of all good things arrive / climb inside us, twist and cry / a kiss on your molten eyes"

6. "Every night I grab some money and I go down to the bar / I got my buddies and a beer, I got a dream, I need a car / You got me begging on my knees, c'mon and throw the dog a bone / A man he doesn't live by rock 'n' roll and brew alone"

7. "I'm a war, of head versus heart, / And it's always this way. / My head is weak, my heart always speaks, / Before I know what it will say." - Death Cab for Cutie - Crooked Teeth

8. " we'll write some notes to tape to the heavy machines, / like 'We hope they treat you well. Hope you don't work too hard.
We hope you get to be happy sometimes.'"

9. "and here i come / westbound / leave the motor running because i'm on the run / in this crowded world i'll be high waiting when the last train comes"

10. "Time stands still / Every time / You come to mind / Just like it did that day / when you chose to walk away"

11. "I was searching for some legal document / As the rain beat down on the hood / When i stumbled upon pictures i tried to forget / And that's how this idea was drilled into my head."

12. "Fire and ashes blowin' cross the sheets / And I'm tired of livin' on 23rd Street / Strung out like some Christmas lights / Out there in the Chelsea night"

13. "You know I didn't mean / What I just said / But my god woke up / On the wrong side of his bed"

14. "Casual as a light / Flickers before it's night / Sadness comes / And the daylight turns and runs"

15. "Well, I'm on my way, to the city life / To a pretty face that shines her light on the city nights / And I gotta catch a noon train / Gotta be there on time"

16. "And when i see you / I really see you upside down / But my brain knows better / It picks you up and turns you around"

17. "Burnt out ends of smokey days / The stale cold smell of morning / The street lamp dies / Another night is over"

18. "Are you ashamed of what you've done? / All we did was have some fun / I won't judge and I won't tell / And I'll forget you when you've gone / I pity all you working stiffs, / Living wondering 'what if?'"

19. "One last kiss for you / One more wish to you / Please make up your mind girl / I'd do anything for you"

If you get the last one, you are my new hero.

20. "I leapt across three or four beds into your arms / Where I had hidden myself somewhere in your charm / Our golden handshake has been smashed into this shape."

Apparently I have been "tagged", but I suppose this should help bring March up to my regular 2 post per month average as of late. Whoo.

Ten good and ten bad things eh. I'll start with the bad.

1. 387 midterm tomorrow that HATES ME
2. I have been coughing and have had a sore throat for a week. GO AWAY!
3. I don't have 7 people to tag like I'm supposed to.
4. I am really really wanting to have time to excercise.
5. Oops, I was supposed to do an assignment for tomorrow...
6. Oops, I need to make a lunch for tomorrow...
7. My abs are sore from all the coughing! Jebus...
8. Yet another person I know has been swallowed by the abyss that is World of Warcraft.
9. I am stupidly tired today.
10. My throat burns (like, acidy stomach) from all the coughing or something I ate, I'm not sure which.

And the good:

1. opendestiny is wonderful and seems to think I am too :)
2. I have a ticket for Death Cab for Cutie & Franz Ferdinand! WOOOOO!
3. I appear to be somewhat LESS sick today than yesterday...
4. Yay, it's warm out!
5. Yay, I can afford the iPod FM remote! Now, will I actually buy one...
6. I got Yellowcard's "Ocean Avenue" finally, and it only cost $9
7. I got "From Under the Cork Tree" by Fall out boy, it only cost $12, and it's the special edition!
8. I have money! Relatively speaking. I can afford to buy food at school again!
9. Free pizza tomorrow! Wooot.
10. I get to do what actually looks like a fun lab tomorrow.

Now, for the list of people that shall have to do this too because I command them:


1. spuenk
2. space_weasel ... wait, she hasn't posted in three years...

Damnit, I'm out of ideas. Does this mean I lose?

Major Gearhead

You scored 73% Practical, 79% Theory, and 80% Performance!

You are the complete package; you know the scientific fundamentals, and you have put them into practice with not only practical diagnostic and repair knowledge, but a brilliant mind for tuning. You could probably have written my book, 'The Motorcycle Fuel Injection Handbook', yourself. Email me; maybe we will collaborate on something!

My test tracked 3 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

Well, I should be sleeping and stuff 'cause I've got a midterm tomorrow at 8 am, but I'm kind of bouncing off the walls, so to speak, inside my head. I drove down to Camrose to meet the lovely spuenk and her friend Shannon who probably has a LJ but I have no idea what it is. Anyway, spent a good three hours in the Boston Pizza lounge there and I absolutely had a great time. I have hardly known her for very long, and even then not in person, and I felt as at ease with her in person as I would with any of my good friends.

I could continue to babble for pages on how I think you're like, the greatest person ever, Jus, but I think you already know I think that about you. Thanks so much for being so wonderful and understanding and fun, and I hope you get better soon. All I can say can be summed up in saying I wish Camrose was closer!

Anywho, going to bed before I really start on another long drawn out post about something I could've said in a couple lines. Goodnight, haha.
