Recycling an old meme

I’ve had this one in my pocket for a bit in case I wanted to write but couldn’t come up with anything original. Pass it along if you like…

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/random
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!
*Optional: Add in a YouTube video or two (if there is one) for some of the songs, or even some sample lyrics to flesh things out a bit

I’m stealing this, but I’m eliminating the randomness aspect of it… music is too precious a thing to be left to chance.

Or maybe I’ll do two versions of it. Whatever. As today’s post showed, I’m really scraping the bottom of the barrel for blogging topics these days. (Though Friday’s “Science Friday” should be a good ‘un.)

Thanks for the impetus!
