Psychological Profile by iPod

Via The Film Experience Blog

My iPod tells my future

1. How does the world see you?
It's not starting off well. Death on Two Legs by Queen.

2. Will I have a happy life?
Space Oddity by David Bowie. Apparently not.

3. What do my friends think of me?
Riffs And Variations On A Single Note For Jelly Roll, Earl Hines, Louis Armstrong, Baby Dodds, And The King of Swing, To Name A Few by Sufjan Stevens. Reports inconclusive

4. Do people secretly lust after me?
Threshold of Revelation by Thomas Newman from the soundtrack to Angels in America. This one seems like good news.

5. How can I make myself happy?
This one is good news, too. Chocolate Explorers from the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Soundtrack by Danny Elfman. Apparently I'm already on the road to happiness.

6. What should I do with my life?
These Boots are Made For Walkin' by Nancy Sinatra. I coulda told you that. I'm getting as far away from my parents as possible (by going to school on the East Coast and then joining the decadent Entertainment Industry and leaving behind my parents, both of whom work in the non-profit sector trying to make the world a better place)

Authors note, all this bold, unbold, bold stuff plus Nathaniel's wierd Html formatting is giving me a fucking headache. I've accidentally published twice, then while deleting the more recent of the two publishings, crashed firefox, cuasing me to lose the incredibly witty things I wrote for 2 questions. So, I am now dispencing with all text formatting. My apologies.

7. Will I ever have children?
Stockings by Suzanne Vega. So, heres what I see happening. One night, I get very very drunk and a very, very seductive woman (I'm picturing Angelina Jolie) seduces me away from my sworn homosexuality for a night of awkward sex. Then she gets pregnant. That is the only possible way I can interpret this song.

8. What is some good advice for me?
Crimson and Clover by Simon and Garfunkel. So, I should get outside more.

9. How will I be remembered?
Smoke Gets in Your Eyes by Sarah Vaughan.
"Yet today my love has flown away
I am without my love

Now laughing friends deride
Tears I can not hide
Oh, so I smile and say"

Uggh, almost as bad as Death on Two Legs

10. What's my signature dance song?
She's Leaving Home by the Beatles. So, does this mean Angelina's baby leaves me? I'm lost... this isn't much of a dance song.

11. What's my current theme song?
Time Warp from the Rocky Horror Picture Show.

12. What do others think my current theme song is?
La Noyee, from the Amelie Soundtrack. This is one of the Happy Accordian Pieces. People think I'm a happy accordian, but really I'm dancing tranny.

13. What shall they play at my funeral?
"En Gallop" by Joanna Newsom. This song actually perfect. Both the music itself and the lyrics:
This place is damp and ghostly
I am already gone.
And the halls were lined with the disembodied
and dustly wings, which fell from flesh

if you don't already listen to Joanna Newsom, it's worth both buying her CD The Milk-Eyed Mender and listening past the initial she-sounds-like-a-munchkin reaction you'll have

14. What type of men do I like?
Honey Pie by the Beatles. I like British actors? But there are so many to choose from.

15. How's my love life?
Amsterdam by Coldplay. "Come on, my star is fading" I beg your pardon. Fading? Fading? I want a recount.

Clearly this was more trouble than it's worth. Feel free to follow suit, just set to shuffle, write down the first 15 songs, analyze and then link back to me. Please, me need linkies.
