March 2008

Similar to my music shuffle post from a few days ago, this is basically the same thing except instead of using the songs to answer questions, you create the soundtrack for the movie of your life. The same rules/instructions apply:

1. Put your music player on shuffle.
2. Press forward for each movie scene.
3. Use the song title as the soundtrack for the scene (even if it doesn’t make sense). And no cheating!

I’ve seen this one on several different blogs around the internet and I thought I might be able to have some fun with it. I have a large and eclectic music collection, so I didn’t really know how this would turn out for me, but I had fun doing it and some of these are quite amusing.

1. Put your music player on shuffle.
2. Press forward for each question.
3. Use the song title as the answer to the question (even if it doesn’t make sense). And no cheating!

Please do not adjust your monitor. Yes, it’s true, after more than a month away, I’m going to try to start posting again. Gasps all around. I can hear them from here.

One change you might notice is that I am going start posting monthly lists of links instead of weekly lists. I wasn’t crazy about how the weekly link posts kind of took over when I wasn’t writing many other posts. I hope the monthly link posts will reduce the clutter between posts of greater substance.
