You and Whose Army?

How could I refuse when it was so temptingly touted as a decent waste of time? Besides, now that I am recovering from my bout of Myxomatosis or whatever germ binge I was on, it's a nice break from My Iron Lung.

I shamelessly swiped the idea from Kelly, and I notice that Maureen has played as well. I Might Be Wrong, but it looks as though all the cool kids are doing it, yo.

In only 15 Steps, you can jump on the meme train and show your favourite band some love at the same time. Using only song names from ONE ARTIST, answer these questions.

Pick Your Artist: Radiohead
Are you male or female: No Surprises
Describe yourself: Idioteque
How do you feel about yourself: I am a Wicked Child

Describe where you currently live: Life in a Glasshouse

If you could go anywhere, where would you go: Sail to the Moon
Your best friend is: All I Need

Your favorite colour is: Fog

You know that: We Suck Young Blood
What's the weather like?: The Trickster
If your life was a TV show, what would it be called?: Punchdrunk Lovesick Singalong
What is life to you?: Jigsaw Falling into Place

What is the best advice you have to give?: Everything in its Right Place

If you could change your name, what would it be?: Fitter Happier

Your favorite food is: it's a toss up between Bangers & Mash and Vegetable

And this is
Where I End and You Begin. Please play along, Prove Yourself, and I'll be over to read your list with great interest.

This is so last week. Get on the Facebook train. ;)

Only joking! Winky emoitcon saves all. ;p This one was a fun meme, eh? The answers are always interesting. I love "Punchdrunk Lovesick Singalong" as the name of your tv show. Great choices!

Anonymous said...

you mean the cool kids , and Kelly too, are doing it

Excellent job in spite of the band you used.....I'm almost expecting you to get their name or your favourite album art tattoo'd on your ass

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Oh you facebookers think you're all that! Good thing you included the winky emoticon, Al.
Now that I think about it, I really do want to be on a tv show called Punchdrunk Lovesick Singalong. The possibilities are endless. Well almost.

I'm saving that for when I am in your neck of the woods next week, Kelly. I was hoping you'd help me pick out which album to use.

Maureen said...

Great job :) Off to read kelly's now, and after those comments it better be amazing ;)

Sean Wraight said...

Allison is right Barbara... You really need to join the Facebook cult. We've had so much fun on the there with our live Oscar and Grammy commentaries. Just consider an extension of necessary networking.

Loved your meme type thing!

Looking forward to seeing your Thom-tat!


bloody awful poetry said...

Well I'm glad you're not sick anymore! Being sick sucks. As we all know.

And I very much look forward to trying this memememememe out! Although it has effectively ruled out Sigur ros, because even I don't know what half their shit means.Oh well.

Todd said...

I enjoyed your best friend (aww) and TV show (yay!).

I might just have to do this now... I've seen it a few times. It could be interesting... Now I'll have to find an artist I like that doesn't use lame titles.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Kelly's is pretty good, I have to admit, Maureen. He cites cheeseburgers.

A Radiohead bear on my butt would make a pretty complex statement, I think, Sean. I may have to succumb to the lure of the facebook yet one day, just to keep up with you kids.

I strongly suspect that it's Jonsi's grocery list half the time, BAP, but it sure sounds good.
Can't wait to read your meme, regardless of which band you ultimately pick.

I get really irritated with lame titles, Todd. It's all part of the song as far as I am concerned, and should be considered just as thoughtfully as the rest of the lyrics.

Wandering Coyote said...

Cool idea...I might have to try it!

Hey, Glad you are feeling better. I am also pleased that you liked the "baby pictures of the cottage". I have chosen the colour for the guest room already. It also appears that you have people already living in the unfinished struture. Damn squatters!

BeckEye said...

Facebooked it already.

BeckEye said...

Oh, and my choice of band was even as unsurprising as yours - Pearl Jam.


I have written this in my agenda to complete as homework tomorrow. Now just to decide what artist I'll use....

Stephanie said...

ok this meme was super fun!
I finally played along, miracle!
Reading your list made me want to listen to Radiohead... good times good times

(oh and I got restless again and moved back to my old blog- and I actually plan on posting again!)

Wandering Coyote said...

Mine is up! It was kinda fun!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Thanks for playing along, Wandering Coyote! Great job.

Damn squatters grinning at me from my living room window! Don't they have a fence and hounds at that damn construction site, Bruno?

You facebookers are so advanced, Beckeye. Way to maintain the Eddie love.

I'll be over to make sure you do your homework, Urban.

I miss Radiohead, don't you, Stephanie? Don't you wish you were in South America right now?
Coming over to check the new improved blog!

Remi said...

Couldn't pass up this one though I think I had it too easy. Dylan's just written far too many songs. It's a good thing that so many of them are great.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Oh Dylan, good choice, Remi. COming over to check it out!

justacoolcat said...

You are weird.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I accept that as a compliment, JustA.
