• Shuffle Song Survey II (Sorry, I love surveys!)

    11 Nov 2010, 11:33 de Windgeist

    You know the principle... Put your playlist/iPod/listening device of choice on shuffle. Work off the following questions one by one - the title of the first song that comes up is the answer to the first question, and so on.

    Why are you taking yet another shuffle quiz?
    Song: The Almighty
    Artist: Die Apokalyptischen Reiter
    Comment: An almighty entity forced me to!

    What's currently in your fridge?
    Song: House on Haunted Hill
    Artist: Deathlike Silence
    Comment: I'm hiding a whole house in my fridge. No wait, a whole hill with a house on it. I didn't know my fridge was the gate to Narnia o.O

    Your biggest nightmare?
    Song: Sins of Emission
    Artist: Skyclad
    Comment: Emissions. Yep, they can be dangerous for the environment.

    What place would you like to visit?
    Song: Burmecian Kingdom
    Artist: Nobuo Uematsu
    Comment: But... but... it rains all the time at Burmecia!

    Why are we here?
    Song: Papyrus Containing The Spell
    Artist: Nile
    Comment: Because someone wrote this spell on papyrus, and poof – there we were.
  • The obligatory shuffle song survey

    22 Oct 2010, 19:25 de Windgeist

    Put your playlist/iPod/listening device of choice on shuffle. Work off the following questions one by one - the title of the first song that comes up is the answer to the first question, and so on.

    Will I get far in life?
    Song: Mother of Light (A New Age Dawns Part 2)
    Artist: Epica
    Comment: Uhm. That means yes, right? I never thought I was going to start my own cult.

    How do my friends see me?
    Song: Desire in the Grace of the Night
    Artist: Orkrist
    Comment: On the good side, it sounds quite... eloquent. On the bad side, I don't get it. Apparently they think I'm a nightowl with lots of unfulfilled wishes. Care to explain? ;)

    Where will I get married?
    Song: Je chante par couverture
    Artist: Helium Vola
    Comment: In the rain, it seems. I don't remember any rain on my wedding day, but come to think of it, it was only our civil wedding. So if we're going to have a late ceremony, I'll better provide umbrellas for everyone, eh?

    What is my best friend's theme song?
    Song: I Hate Blue Robots
