An odd little meme, passed on from Reynardo...

1) Find out the song that was #1 the week you were born.
2) Find that song on YouTube.
3) Post that video on your wall without shame


Well, according to the Go-Set Australian Chart for the beginning of June 19justneveryoumind!!, it was this... a song that belongs to Petula Clark, who apparently took it from Charlie Chaplin, though I'm sure he didn't say anything about it...

In the absence of anything really significant to report, herewith a Meme, snaffled from Reynardo, who got it from... but she's already done that Tom Lehrer joke...

The rules:~ People who have been tagged must write the answers on their blog and replace any question they dislike with a new, original question.Trivial life detail here... )

Bugger tagging anyone... that's sooo Noughties man... If you feel like broadcasting the irrelevant, go right ahead... or go to Twitter.

Find & post 5 songs beginning with the letter allocated to you by whoever did it last...

I was given W by Reynardo )

Post a comment if you want a letter to continue this with. Otherwise, just watch & listen & let the meme stop here...

Unfortunately, there's no video on Youtube of the King Crimson song which gave me my name... Ah well, go out & buy their album Beat instead...
waitingman: (Magritte Guitar)
Think of 20 albums that had such a profound effect on you that they changed your life or the way you looked at it. They sucked you in and took you over for days, weeks, months, years. These are the albums that you can use to identify time, places, people, emotions. These are the albums that, no matter what they were thought of musically, shaped your world.

Like others, I suspect, I originally thought 20 was too many. Well we shall see... )

Snaffled from [livejournal.com profile] aquandrian... 'When you see this, post your favourite poem'

One of many favourites from a current visitor to these shores...

I came so far for beauty, I left so much behind
My patience & my family. My masterpiece unsigned
I thought I'd be rewarded, for such a lonely choice
And surely she would answer such a very hopeless voice

I practiced on my sainthood, I gave to one and all
But the rumours of my virtue, they moved her not at all
I changed my style to silver. I changed my clothes to black
And where I would surrender, now I would attack

I stormed the old casino for the money and the flesh
And I myself decided what was rotten & what was fresh
And men to do my bidding. And broken bones to teach
The value of my pardon, the shadow of my reach

But no, I could not touch her with such a heavy hand
Her star beyond my order. Her nakedness unmanned
I came so far for beauty, I left so much behind
My patience & my family. My masterpiece unsigned

A meme... via [livejournal.com profile] aquandrian.

1. Comment on this post and ask for a letter. .. or don't
2. I will give you one... or not
3. Think of 5 fictional characters whose names begin with that letter, and post their names and your comments on these characters in your LJ... or in my Comments section... or again ~ don't.

I was given 'C'... )

It's one of those Quiz/Meme things...

Do... or do not )
waitingman: (Orang Utan)
Unexpectedly home... I should be grateful, as the expected was to be in Castle Hill being droned on at about slow-combustion fireplaces.

In the absence of anything exciting, I've caved in & submit a meme in lieu of important stuff... or stuff that's important to me at least...

Swiped unashamedly & unapologetically from GinMartini ~ who cheerfully admits she swiped it from someone else.

Wearing
- my 20-something yr old brown boots
- blue jeans
- blue t-shirt
- striped navy L/S shirt
- the ubiquitous red socks

Wishing
- someone would write my gov't job applications for me
- I'd remembered to take something out of the freezer this morning for dinner
- I could see certain people more often

Today...
- I gave an employee a written warning
- I forgot to buy petrol on Cheap Tuesday
- I played King Crimson on the store PA system... I thought it sounded great!!
- is (Not Enough) Pay-Day Eve

Tomorrow...
- I have honourable intentions to walk to & from work (see #2 of 'Today')
- will doubtless be full of few surprises
- is the birthday of someone from my past. I just can't remember who...

I don't normally do memes any more, but this one from Shadow5Tails et al sounded interesting...

Go to Google and type in "[your name] likes to" - eg. "Aristophanes the Wonder Frog likes to". Post the top ten search results in your blog. Commentary is optional, but like wasabi, adds to the experience.

... pause to consider putting my real name to this or not... whatthehell!!

1. Obviously Justin likes to keep himself as busy as possible.
Sometimes... other times he relishes inactivity... until he gets bored, which takes about an hour.

2. Justin likes to play with his rattles and vibrating toys.
If that means percussion & guitars, I certainly do!! If, on the other hand, it means....... not really my kink.

3. Justin likes to go into a game hungry, saying he's more aggressive on an empty stomach.
And it makes me look slimmer too!

4. Justin likes to be scared.
The only times I'm really scared are those spent on tall ladders or unstable heights... & no, I do not like them, Sam I Am. And this is my holiday from hell!!

5. Justin likes to play sports, ride his new electric scooter around the neighborhood and enjoys being in Scouts.
No he @#%$!! doesn't...

6. Justin likes to color, draw, play outside, look for bugs (especially roly polies and lady bugs), and play video games on his Game Cube.
I said... No he @#%$!! doesn't!!!

7. When he's not in scrubs, Justin likes to sport a variety of styles.
Should read ~ "When he's not watching Scrubs, Justin likes to play guitar in a variety of styles." Put that one down to a proofreading error...

8. Justin likes to collect weird, old things.
That's a terrible thing to say about my friends!!

9. Justin likes to spend his free time chilling to mellow R&B music, grooving on the dance floor.
For the last time... No he @#%$!! doesn't!!!!!

10. Justin likes to play video games and swim.
Justin wouldn't play video games if his life depended on it & would only swim if his life depended on it. To quote Paul Stookey (of Peter, Paul & Mary fame) ~ "You know what swimming is to me? Staying alive when you're in the water."

Do life's little mysteries hold no fascination for people any more!!??

Here's yet another of those Too Much Information questionnaires... no thanks to Maelefic, who - now that he's apparently feeling healthy, was also feeling confessional.

40 questions!! Waaay too much information!!! )

Hmm... Gone are the days when you could hide behind a pseudonym on LJ. Now everyone wants to know everything about everybody. So here's another of those little 20 questions/quiz/meme thingies.

Behind the mask... behind the cut. )

The last few days have been high, low, confusing, gratifying, uncertain, but on the whole more than worthwhile. I feel something coming, but I'm not sure what it is, nor whether it be fair or foul.

Waiting...

Some more questions from that quiz whizzing around a week or so ago...

These are from Reynardo )

I think I've already passed this thing on to everyone on my friends list, so the meme stops with me.
