I’m not really sure what else to say, so I’m just providing the link for now.
So, on someone else’s blog I found this lovely 90′s subculture test, and so I thought it’d be funny to take it as though I were back in the mid 90′s – this basically fits me from then. It’s funny now, but I still enjoy some of the music.

Okay, so I went for like 30 – it’s still fun, and I could do it for a lot longer. I love music. I found it kind of odd how it didn’t always seem so random; it was almost thematic in areas. I could sit and fast forward through stuff all day, it’s really enjoyable to me to see what comes up. My collection is fairly eclectic – the only thing really missing is country, and that’s just because I haven’t brought a lot of that to work. It should be noted that this is just from my collection at work, and is missing roughly 30GB of music.

Four posts in one day? Craziness! I’m going blogging insane.
Tonight, Lisa and I stopped by Borders and I picked up the Queer Eye for the Straight Guy Soundtrack. My biggest motivation was to get Move Your Feet by Junior Senior on CD (as I’ve not liked a ton of their other stuff), as well as the new Duran Duran song, because I’m a big fan of Duran Duran. Turns out it also has some Basement Jaxx and Sting and just a lot of artists that sound intriguing but I don’t know much about.
I’ve got the Duran Duran song on now, called Sunrise, and I love it. It’s great stuff. I have good feelings about this CD. Now I have the impulse to scan through it all and blog it for you, so here goes.
All Things (Just Keep Getting Better) by Wildlife with Simone Denny – pretty peppy, upbeat, generally enjoyable, although I don’t see myself opting to listen to this song willingly that often.
Good Luck by Basement Jaxx – I’ve noticed that Basement Jaxx songs really have to be listened to in order to get a feel for them, so it’s hard to critique with a few seconds. It’s gotten a little farther in as I type, and it’s pretty decent. I’ll have to come back to it.
Slow by Kylie Minogue (remixed by the Chemical Brothers, I believe) – it’s kinda slow (yes, that should be obvious, but I’m still saying it) but it has a decent sound to it.
Move Your Feet by Junior Senior – I was very OCD with this song for awhile. I would loop it in the background for hours at a time at work. I’m glad I use headphones at work, or my coworkers would probably kill me. If you have OCD I’m not trying to tease, I’m just using it as a description.
You Promised Me (Tu Es Foutu) by Ingrid – I’ve heard this song before, and it’s enjoyable. The first few seconds are kinda blah, but once it gets going it’s enjoyable. It makes me bounce in my chair a little bit. This whole CD seems to be doing that.
Superstar by Jamelia – eh. Seems okay enough. I’ll have to give a full listen later for comments. See, even as I type this, it’s getting a bit better. Still not my favorite, but not bad.
Everybody Wants You To Emerge by Fischerspooner vs. Billy Squier – Has an interesting sound. Mixes of this nature generally do. It seems alright.
Sunrise by Duran Duran – as mentioned above, I’ve already listened to at least part of this. I don’t want to skip forward, I’m enjoying it so much. However, for you, my reader, I will. Quite possibly my favorite song on the disc so far.
Never Coming Home (Gonna Live My Life Remix) by Sting – definitely not like anything I’ve heard from Sting in a long time. I almost can’t believe it’s Sting. Sounds good, will have to come back to it.
An Area Big Enough To Do It In by prophet Omega – umm… interesting. I’m going to let it play for a few seconds more before I say much. Now that some time has passed, I can say that I honestly don’t know. It’s not bad, but it’s not really gripping to me. Now that it’s getting farther in, it’s getting a little better, but I’m still not that big into it. Moving on.
You’re So Damn Hot by OK Go – eh. It’s not really me. It’s alright I guess. One of the shorter tracks though, so I’ll be okay.
Extraordinary by Liz Phair – interesing sound. Still not super gripping, but it’s okay.
Are You Read For Love by Elton John – I’ve always liked Elton John, and this song has a decent sound to it within the first few seconds. It’s very Elton John, at least in my ears. That could just be my lack of Elton John experience, however.
Hidden Track – Five Gay Men and One Straight Man by, umm, a couple of the guys whom I’m not familiar with enough to name. We’re talking all of thirty seconds, and it’s actually even from an episode I happened to catch on NBC. It makes for a funny last little addition.
So, that’s the CD. I’m now stopping and turning my attention to the Dateline on NBC about Jesus now. Have a good night.
The title of this entry was a fun little bit of consonance. The article was even more fun.
It’s old news in some sense – but still interesting. I’m half posting this just for my personal reference. I like USA Today, I should stop by more often.
Members of the LDS church, aka Mormons, regard these clothing to be sacred. I can understand why the LDS church wouldn’t want them to be sold online, as you can’t just go and buy the things without having been a member of the church for awhile and in good standing, but at the same time I can understand eBay allowing for the sale of them. I’d be intrigued to see other sacred items up for sale on eBay – if you know of any, feel free to share. I don’t necessarily support it, but it’s certainly a unique thing.
Just overwhelmed with homework lately. More thoughts tomorrow.
I just don’t know what to say about this, other than “Man, that’s crazy.” That’s still an understatement, if what she claims is true.
