... tag play. Because I'm a push-over when it comes to some of my friends. And because music takes such a big part in my life.
Update: see "Warning: Spam on cell phone", below
I was tagged by powgrl
If you don't know her work yet, please have a look. It's for your own good.
Here are the rules:
* Choose a singer/band/group.
* Answer using ONLY titles of songs by that singer/band/group.
* Tag 6 more people (let them know they've been tagged).
Mine is Steely Dan, I've known and loved their music for the greater part of my life.
1. Are you male or female?
2. Describe yourself.
3. What do people feel when they're around you?
EVERYONE'S GONE TO THE MOVIES
4. How would you describe your previous relationship?
5. Describe your current relationship.
HOME AT LAST
6. Where would you want to be now?
CAVES OF ALTAMIRA
7. How do you feel about love?
TIME OUT OF MIND
8. What's your life like?
EVERYTHING MUST GO
9. What would you ask for if you had only one wish?
LUNCH WITH GINA
10. Say something wise.
ANY MAJOR DUDE WILL TELL YOU
I have to add that the answer the question is really just the titles of the songs, not their content, except perhaps "Peg".
Walt & Don (and some of their friends) "explain" the way they work: fr.youtube.com/watch?v=6x6uoNq…
The girls don't seem to care: fr.youtube.com/watch?v=Wu_DCV8…
The thing about tags is, I don't mind the questions but I hate making any choice whom I should tag and whom not. So if you're not tagged, please don't feel left out, if you are and don't like it, just ignore it or give it back, I don't know.
From somewhere next week I'll be a lot less present on DA. As it happens, my subscription ends at the start of that period and I'm so selfish to postpone renewing it until when I'm fully back to enjoy it. Be prepared for delays in answering and for short (cell phone) messages - I still like your faves and comments just as much.
And a warning: spam on cell phones
I just got spammed on my cell phone for the first time. It was a message that just contained a link, without any explanation, and from an 'Unknown sender'. Clicking on such a link would be a bad idea, but if people are in a hurry to check their messages, it's just the thing that happens. It turns out the link downloads a video that will cost you several euros. It seems the German firm that's behind it will give a refund if you complain, but it's best to avoid that trouble. If you're interested, read the details here: timtrent.blogspot.com/2008/04/…
Basic message: don't click on unknown links, not even on a cell phone.
To contrast the good taste in the first part of my journal, and to show what a sentimental old fart I am, here's the video of the music of "Listening to" below:
It's about a girl who asks the river where her lover has gone. I do think it's very catchy though.
