Day 267

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

Breaking Up: "Fresh Tendrils," Soundgarden

Formal/Prom: "Moving," Silkworm

Jason,
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.
