This is making the rounds of my flist; seized by a fit of nostalgia, I was unable to resist.

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 20 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
Step 3: Strike through the songs when someone guesses both artist and track correctly.
Step 4: Looking the lyrics up on a search engine is CHEATING! Though, really, can I stop you?
Step 5: If you like the game post your own.


I skipped instrumentals, of course, and classical. Also no duplicate bands. Somehow I ended up with 22, which makes up for the fact that some of these are pretty obscure. Have at it!

Guess the song from the first line. More lines will be added as the week progresses. iTunes et. al. yes, Google no (i.e. no using the Internet to search for song lyrics, but listening to music you own is fair game).

Go! )

A very special "home sick from work" edition of the song lyrics game will be coming your way around noon Pacific. Be there, or don't.

The Friday morning song game will commence at approximately 10:30 PST, 1:30 Eastern.

Also, GIP. (The quote is from a Terry Pratchett book. I can't remember which one, but I'm not sure it really matters....)

Baseball starts today! More blathering about baseball here. )

This week is my school's spring break. Normally we would work through it, but my boss decided that everyone needed a rest, and so she's shut down the library tomorrow. Three day weekend! It is a pure and glorious coincidence that Kingdom Hearts II is scheduled to be delivered tomorrow. I hope UPS comes early enough that I actually get some time to play it....

In honor of my day off, I think I'm going to pull together a song lyrics game. Probably sometime in the morning. Whee!

Congratulations to the Friends List, which just did something it's never managed to do before: cleaned out an entire song lyrics game on the first line. In less than two hours, even. Every song guessed, and the theme discovered. You win.... well, as usual, nothing. I wish I had some sort of a prize for you all. But I'm at work, so I can't even reward you with a new cat pictures. Maybe I'll think of something.

I would say "must have been too easy" but actually there were a couple of tricky ones in there. So, again, nice work.

There are more lines. Also, the theme is still unguessed -- I don't think that's ever happened before, that a theme has lasted past the first day.

So, a hint. This theme is somewhat meta. It's not a common word or idea in the titles and/or artists, and it's completely unrelated to the subject matter of the lyrics. It does have something to do with the lyrics, though.

And that's all I'm going to say. For now.

Update: the theme is now guessed! Props to the lovely and talented [livejournal.com profile] regann, who correctly surmised that the theme is songs in which the title never appears in the lyrics. Congrats, [livejournal.com profile] regann! You win, well, nothing. Except bragging rights. Bragging rights are always good, though. ;)

alarm

So for the first time in memory, I was awakened by the cat alarm today. Lexi, around 6am, decided he wanted some attention, so he wandered around on the bed, headbutting and pawing at me and purring up a storm. He wouldn't settle to be petted, though -- he kept jumping over my head, pouncing on various body parts, etc. Tori has figured out laps and snuggling, but Lexi just doesn't have that concept down yet. He likes petting but rarely sits still for long. Too much kitten energy, I suppose.

Also, I am more convinced every day that a cat is going to jump into the shower with me one day. I'm not sure how to feel about this.

The Tuesday morning lyrics game will be along at approximately (overzealous players are please to note use of modifier) 10 AM PST.
