If your life was a movie, what would be on the soundtrack?

Post by diamondlil » Thu September 25th, 2008, 9:09 pm

I saw this at another forum and thought it looked like fun! I can't do it because the only thing on my MP3 player at the moment is Great Expectations, and it really doesn't work with just chapter numbers, so this is the list that was posted by the person that started the thread!

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
6. DON'T CHEAT!!!! It's meant to be fun :D

Waking Up: Invention in C Minor - Billy Joel

One of the husbands techno toys!

You store all your music on the computer, plug the box into the stereo, and it accesses the computer via the wireless network. Has a graphical remote too. In that respects it is a bit like a limitless ipod. But you can also access internet radio, podcasts, online music services live music archive etc. It is pretty cool. And he can take it downstairs and plug it into the downstairs stereo if he so wishes.

He swore when he got it a few months ago that he would box up his 600+ cds. Well...we will see.
