Soundtrack of your life

This is one of those stupid viral internet things but I thought it was fun.


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 - first songs only

Opening Credits
Waking Up
First Day of School
Falling in Love
Fight Song
Breaking Up
Life is Good
Mental Breakdown
Getting Back Together
Paying the Dues
The Night Before the War
Moment of Triumph
Death Scene
Funeral Song
End Credits

So for me its:

Opening Credits: If You Were There, Beware – Artic Monkeys
Waking Up: The Island Of Children’s Children – Müm
First Day of School: Stab – Built To Spill
Falling in Love: D.D.T.-Kool Keith (Panzah Zand) (Radiohead)
Fight Song: Like Herod - Mogwai

Pulling Johnny Cash for my funeral is pretty cool but Natalie Imbruglia for the prom? Geez, I need to clean out my itunes...

I'm not sure where this guy's walking his dog but it sounds a bit scary.

Crest of a new wave


...what's that thing creeping up behind you?

Last night the biggest huntsman in the entire world invaded our bathroom. Its no exaggeration to say its only a little bit smaller than my hand but only slightly bigger than a facehugger from Aliens. I'm putting off going the loo this morning just in case it drops on my head. That, my friends, is one scary arachnid.

UPDATED: The huntsman is gone! I suspect its lying in wait somewhere in the house and its slowly going to kill my housemates and I one by one just like in Alien. So if you don't here from me again, mama I loves ya...
