Okay… here. This is for you, and also everyone else.


     Take your music library and put your player on random. Proceed to play agic Eight Ball?with these questions and use the titles of the tunes you get for answers. Don’t skip around!

1. How does the world see me?
    Just Like Heaven – The Cure

2. Will I have a happy life?
    Stella Was A Diver And She Was Always Down – Interpol (This is not promising. I love Interpol, though…)

3. What do my friends really think of me?
    Your Heart Is An Empty Room – Death Cab For Cutie (A bit depressing, but that about right.)

4. Do people secretly like me?
    La valse d’Amlie – Yann Tiersen (So… a French guy attracted to me? I don’t get it.)

5. How can I make myself happy?
    Don Bother Me – The Beatles (Apparently I have to be alone to be happy now.)

6. What should I do with my life?
    The Leaving Song – AFI (Geez… the random button is against me!)

7. Will I ever have children?
    Dream For Me – Eisley (Ever so cryptic!)

8. What is some good advice for me?
    Be Mine – REM, with Thom Yorke of Radiohead (That makes absolutely no sense.)

9. How will I be remembered?
    Blue Diamonds – The Long Winters (Obviously, I will be involved in a heist of blue diamonds. YES.)

10. What is my signature dancing song?
      Perfect Blues – The 77 (Indie kids don’t dance, but I suppose that I do indetify with this song, and that’s almost-but-not-really the same.)

11. What do I think is my current theme song?
     Black Coffee – Bjork & Tricky (This is definitely not my theme song at all. Engine Driver by The Decemberists is closer, but nooo, I can’t have that song!)

12. What does everyone else think my current theme song is?
     A Boy Who May Never Come Home – Extra Extra (So everyone thinks I a loser and that I’ll always be unsuccesful in love?)

13. What song will play at my funeral?
      All Sewn Up – Longwave (This is just awesome. I hope it does get played at my funeral!)

14. What type of men/women do I like?
      The Gloating Sun – The Shins (I can only assume that this means I like the indie boy types because The Shins are all indie boys, and this is the only logical explanation I could come up with.)

15. What is my day going to be like?
      District Sleeps Alone Tonight – The Postal Service (That fitting…)

16. Why am I here?
      We Will Become Silhouettes – The Shins, covering Postal Service (…Am I the only one confused by this answer?)

17. What will people remember me for?
      Following A Red Balloon – Bart Davenport (I do love balloons…)

18. What song will I get stuck in my head tomorrow?
      Rainbow Connection – Dresden Dolls, covering The Muppets (This is very likely, since I love that song.)

19. Are there people outside waiting to take me away?
      Yellow Alert – TRIGUN soundtrack (Yep. They’re waiting in their white vans and everything!)

20. What will this year be all about?
      ‘Till The Tide Creeps In – The Thrills (Yep, it’s all about the harmonica solo.)


     In other news, I’m alive and well. Being outside at night is one of the best things in the world. Ever. However, the park by my house needs a swing set very badly.

     The weather will be in the 90’s this next week. I am not ready for summer…


     It approximately five o five in the afternoon. A gust of wind blows a newspaper to the feet of a businessman who didn have any change to buy himself a copy. Simultaneously, a girl sitting at a caf?forty blocks away realises she knows a boy that she loves and would like to kiss, but doesn’t say anything. In the exact same moment, two little children are delighted by seeing a hummingbird drink nectar from the flowers in their garden. Concurrently, I decide to not trouble myself with trying to write a poem and end this mostly pointless post.

Anyway,
  -Olivia

Turn Up Your Sound.

    Pointless? I think not. Well, I guess if you say so. I think I’m going to have to do your survey dealy-bob here in a few. I’m going to make of a point of coming to the show this week and renting House of Flying Daggers so we can finally get down to watching it. There just needs to be a cinematic feature in the future and apparently that is of high reccomendation.
    See you hopefully soon. =)  *I like emoticons >=D*

    Jakery obviously hasn’t seen Am幨ie, which is unfortunate, because it is such a lovely film.
    Gosh!  Two people beat me to the post that was just for me!  What sort of sister am I, anyway?  Ah well.. I do like the new song, and I like that you have “Turn up your sound” at the end of the entry.  My favourite answer you got {besides “All Sewn Up”… that is just awesome} is “Blue Diamonds.”  I’ve actually had snippets of that song stuck in my head over the past few days.  Keep me posted on your plot to heist the diamonds.
    Much love,Sarah

    I still primarily have CDs, and don’t have a large enough playlist to conduct that survey of yours…
    *frowns*
    But, it looked awesome.

    Nope, haven’t seen it. But that writing device is gold. Just rare enough to be fantastically beautiful.

  7. djeikyb Says:

    heh, i understood what you meant originally, i was just having fun with language while forming some thoughts. your post forced me, however inadvertently, to conciously think about titles. ’twas enlightening for me.

    Oh, and I shan’t be at Kuppajoes. Next we meet likely will be a near wednesday. Very cool invitation, by the way. I don’t know if you intended the symbolism, but I loved the rocking horse.
