IF YOUR LIFE WAS A SUPER HERO EPIC 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. Don't lie and try to pretend you're cool...
“What is this Feeling?" Wicked
(Loathing! Unadulterated loathing! I was clearly the popular child.)
2. First Crush:
“You're Crazy" Guns N' Roses
(You don't need my love, all you want you want you want is satisfaction!)
3. Getting your superpowers:
“Intruder" Peter Gabriel
(Well, traumatic events. Some dude broke into my house with nefarious intent and I laid on the smackdown.)
4. Experimenting with the powers:
“Exhuming McCarthy" R.E.M.
5. Reactions of family & friends:
“Ode to a Superhero” Weird Al
(Well! They seem to approve! But fuck all if I'm running around in my pyjamas.)
6. Decision to be hero:
“Sunday” Tick Tick..... Boom!
(I made the decision listening to fools in a blue silver chromium dinner, on the green-purple-yellow-red stools. In a small SoHo cafe. On an island in two rivers. On an ordinary sunday.)
7. Public’s reactions:
“Man in the Box" Alice in Chains
(Whups. They take that 'No vigilantes' rule seriously 'round these parts.)
8. The Villian:
“Wake Me Up Before You Go” WHAM!
(AAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Sorry. This song will forever have V for Vendetta
connotations for me. (omg click link watch video so funny) My villain is V! Noooo, I don't want to fight V!)
“The Mary Ellen Carter” Stan Rogers
(My sidekick is bunch of hard-luck sailors?)
10. Your Superhero costume:
“The Burning Heart” Bruno Lazzaretti, from the ST for Hannibal
(... Other people's skin. No, that would be Silence of the Lambs. This is the scene where Hannibal's seducing the Italian cop's wife at the opera. Damn, my costume is high-class!)
11. Your Superhero Life:
“King of Birds” R.E.M.
(A thumbnail sketch, a jeweler's stone, a mean idea to call my own. My life is surreal and dreamlike, and lonely.)
12. Falling in Love:
“The Mountie Song” Arrogant Worms
(Aaahahahahaha. I fall in love with a Mountie!)
13. Lover Finding out about Super-alias:
“Mad World” Donnie Darko (remix)
(I think I break my Mountie's brain.)
14. The Breakup:
“A Little Dental Music” Little Shop of Horrors, expanded ed.
. Wow. He breaks up with me in the office of our sadistic dentist. The sounds of pain are muted by a thousand living strings.)
15. Captured by the Villian:
“The Toddler Song” Sean Morey
("They call me the toddler. My goal? To kill myself! They call me the toddler, I'm a suicidal elf." V de-ages me! Oh noes!)
16. The Villian’s Evil Plan:
“Worms Make Dirt" Aquabats
(V apparently has a childish theme, as this one's sung weirdly. There is a chipmunk in the center of the earth....
(Just like in Star Wars! But with less wookie and hopefully less crushing.)
18. Final Battle:
“Masochism Tango” Various
("I ache for the touch of your lips, dear, but much more for the touch of your whips, dear." Wow. A very sensual fight that totally ends with a lot of blood and two winners.)
19. Last Scene & End Credits:
“Suicide is Painless” M*A*S*H
(Apparently, I didn't win the way I wanted to.)
So... What are
Also! BARBARA. My Grue now speaks in an awful Russian accent in my head and IT'S YOUR FAULT!
