I'd seen this game floating around on before, but never did it until now. Interesting, to say the least.
Basically, if you have an MP3 player on your computer, you put it on shuffle and use the first song that comes up for each category. It ends up forming...
THE SOUNDTRACK OF YOUR LIFE
...or something similarly wacky. Here goes:
IF YOUR LIFE WAS A MOVIE, WHAT WOULD THE SOUNDTRACK BE?
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... DON'T CHEAT!
Opening Credits: "Something," the Beatles
Waking up: "I Am Mine," Pearl Jam
Falling in Love: "Know Your Onion!" the Shins
Fight Song: "I'm in Love (with Arthur Dove)," Portastatic (I can't think of a worse 'fight song')
Breaking Up: "Fresh Tendrils," Soundgarden
Formal/Prom: "Moving," Silkworm
Life: "Rebound," Sebadoh (is 'life' really a movie segment?)
Mental Breakdown: "Wicked Little Critta," They Might Be Giants
Driving: "400 Metres," Sloan
Flash Back: "After the Last Laugh," Archers of Loaf
Getting Back Together: "Lewis Hollow," Jeremy Enigk
Wedding: "East Berlin at Night," Early Day Miners

Wow. Wow. Why don't I do it again?

Now I finally understand. You have purged your music collection while really keeping your music collection in tact on your harddrive. It all makes so much more sense to me now.
oh, yeah, I'm calling the feds.
