Soundtack for the Movie of My Life

Hmm, it's been a while since I posted here, huh? Well, next week I should have a new video to post for you ( and just to catch up, you could go here and see my end of the year project from last spring...hopefully you will see some improvements with this next project!).

In the meantime, I thought I would do this crazy/fun little exercise. It entertained me and I hope it entertains you, too!

So, here's how it works:

1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc).

2. Put it on shuffle.

3. Press play.

4. For every question, type the song that's playing.

5. When you go to a new question, press the next button.

6. Don't lie and try to pretend you're cool...OK, I didn't lie to look cool, but the first time I tried this almost every song was a Christmas one or a story, so I had to go back through and un-check those because if they're all about Christmas, it's not very cool!

Opening Credits:

Someday – M.L.T.R. …OK, I have no idea who these guys are, this song is on a sampler of music in English

by Danish artists, but it’s pretty creepy since the chorus is, “Someday, someway, together we will be baby.”

Genetic Engineering – X-Ray Specs


Ma Ya Hi – O-Zone …hmmm, this would be fun at a wedding!

Ikno I'm old and slow and not quite as media savvy as I should be. So it's my fault that I don't quite understand the challenge. What are the questions we're responding to? Probably this won't work very well with me, anyway, because I don't have much in my library.

I suppose OHP could use my library. I was pretty tired when I did this so I'm having a do-over that I'll put on Facebook. I realized that if you click "Shuffle List Now" on WMP, then it stays that way. So what I did this morning was to put all the appropriate genres in a playlist (omitting Christmas and Spoken Word) and then just leave it on Shuffle. It's working much better and easier. Oddly, the first 4 out of 5 have come out instrumental, which is nice for a movie, anyway. But I didn't cheat.
