Which song do you prefer, #1 or #20?
ooh... say hi to your mom vs. mike doughty. had it been two different songs by these bands we might have seen a different outcome, but i gotta side with Where Have You Gone? as it's one of my all time favorite songs.

What album is #2 from?
lets build a fire

What do you think about the artist who did #3?
loves the acorn. loves.

Is #4 one of your favorite songs?
i couldn't pick this song out of a line up. certainly i could pinpoint it as the magnetic fields, although i do often confuse them with jens lekman...

Who does #5 remind you of?
hawaii. i first learned of deerhoof while i was living on oahu. i got to see them in concert after only hearing a few of their songs on the college radio station. after the concert i was hooked. i went to another of their concerts the following night; and i am dying to see them in concert again someday.

Does #6 have better lyrics or music?
i'm gonna go with music. i don't think i fully understand the lyrics of this song. great melody, though.

Do any of your friends like #7?
anyone who does not like this song doesn't know their elbow from their ass.

What does #8 remind you of?
honestly... it reminds me of last sunday when i went to wash my baby dreads for the first time and this was the first song that played.
i totally rocked this song in the shower, by the way.

Which song do you prefer #9 or #19?
i'd refer you to the only other journal i have.
so obsessed with education.

When did you first hear #10?
50 fine lines mixed album that i got off of the i guess i'm floating music blog.

What genre is #11?
i really don't pay attention to genres. they don't serve me.

What color does #12 remind you of?
rainbow color?

Can you play #13 on any instrument?
well, jeepers, i've never tried. but i'm pretty sure i could rock it on an accordion.

What is your favorite lyric from #14?
seriously? pick a favorite lyric from a modest mouse song? never ending math equation none the less? that song is a non-stop fucking lyrical extravaganza.
"the universe works on a math equation that never even ever really ends in the end."
and of course, who could forget...
"oh my god and oh my cat."

Is #15 a good song to dance to?
every song is a good song to dance to, especially any boy least likely to. they are so g'damn poppy.

Is #16 more of a "nighttime" or "daytime" song?
err... daytime... i guess?

Is #17 a happy or sad song?
i'm not really good enough friends with this song to tell you whether it's happy or sad.

Is #18 better to listen to alone or with friends?
well, i do enjoy sharing this song with friends, but i also really enjoy belting it out in the car when i'm all by my lonesome.

have you ever seen #19 live?
37 DAYS, BABY!!!

how did you find out about the band who's #20?
shit, fuck, piss, i don't remember. did i stumbleupon this band? i really can't recall, but i'm awful glad i did.

thanks for the good time, chuck o'fuckingconnor.

    yer welcome. by the way, have you heard the new wilco record, 'skybluesky'? it is truly amazing. i really didnt like it too much at first, as it seemed a bit too...passive, i suppose? it's very gentle and sweeping and has a lot of open spaces...very unlike the electornic hullabaloo that constituted YHF and the avante-gaurde sounds of aGiB, but it is quickly becoming my new favorite record. very mellow and beautiful. check it before you wreck it, son! werd.
