Meme from multiple people. Choose your genre show, answer the questions using episode titles from that show--if possible, don't repeat any.

phoenix64: The movie of my life must be really low-budget (DF quote movie of my life)
I love these music player memes. Also, when it comes to music, my life is totally a movie. I got this meme from [ profile] matsujo9

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

1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, IPod, etc.)
2. Put it on shuffle.
3. Press play.
4. For the first question, type the song that's playing.
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button twice.
6. Don't lie and try to pretend you're cool...just type it in.
7. Tag people (not bloody likely)

I realize I'm one of the last people to do this meme, but:
Comment to this post and I will give you 5 subjects/things I associate you with. Then post this in your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given.

[ profile] travels_in_time gave me: The Dresden Files (any incarnation), Alaska, Batman, Early Edition, and phoenixes.

And yes, I'm in the mood to ramble )

Oh great, one of my userpics has randomly changed. How long ago did that start happening again?

Do I OTP? I tend to think that I don't, because I associate OTP's with ship wars and character bashing and all kinds of unpleasant behavior. But do I get all sentimental and wibbly about certain pairings? Darn tootin'. So, a meme:

clickie! )

Snagged from [ profile] _medley_. This is the "Omnivore's Hundred" as compiled by Very Good Taste.

1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Optional extra: Post a comment at the original Omnivore's Hundred blog entry linking to your results. (You can also go here to find links to explanations of the less-identifiable foods I anal-retentively copied over the original list, HTML and all, so they're the same links).
This is not good when I have to go grocery shopping in a couple of hours )

Meme snatched from [ profile] honorh:

You are in a mall when the zombies attack. You have:

1. one weapon.
2. one song blasting on the speakers.
3. one famous person to fight alongside you.

Weapon can be real or fictional, you may assume endless ammo if applicable. Person can be real or fictional.

1. Your standard pump action 12-gauge. I'm an old-fashioned girl when it comes to my weapons, particularly because I want something I have half a chance of being able to deal with if something goes wrong (yes, I do kind of do guns). Plus, the less fancy it is the less chance there is of something going wrong in the first place.

2. AC/DC "Highway to Hell". I can't help it, it's what popped into my head and it won't let me dismiss it.

3. Ellen Ripley. Simply the best. Plus there's no reason she can't bring along her pulse rifle.

It almost feels like a waste to only come up with one set of answers for this one.

Icon meme!

I have a fondness for these kinds of memes. The rules are as such: comment here and I'll pick four icons of yours that I'd like you to tell me more about. The idea is that you do so in a post and "create a never-ending cycle of icon squee!", but if you wish to only answer in the comments here that's OK too. These are the four of mine that [ profile] rustydog picked:

Seen in a couple of different places on my Friends List, with an additional category and added anal-retentiveness.

Instructions: Open up your iTunes and fill out this survey, no matter how embarrassing the responses might be.

How many songs total: 1768
How many hours or days of music: 5:02:16:49
Most recently played: Foo Fighters, "Best of You"
Most played: Terrence Mann, "Where's the Girl?"
Most recently added: Passions, "I'm In Love With A German Film Star" (It was in the first episode of Ashes to Ashes, OK?)

Sort by song title:
First Song: Klaus Badelt & Mark Batson, "A-500"
Last Song: Richard Thompson, "1952 Vincent Black Lightning"
(Now hang on a second - generations of librarians in my family are bitchily reminding me that numbers go first. So if iTunes sorted things properly, the first would be "7" by Moby and the last would be "Zoo Station" by U2.)

Sort by time:
Shortest Song: Chris Whitley, "Excerpt" (0:17) - Hey, I say it counts.
Longest Song: Arlo Guthrie, "Alice's Restaurant (The Massacree Revisited)" (22:26) - Thirtieth anniversary live version with a rambling interlude that includes the funniest theory about Watergate ever.

Sort by album:
First album: U2, Achtung Baby
Last album: The Verve Pipe, 85 on 31
(See above - with proper sorting the first would be Moby's 18 and the last would be Your Little Secret by Melissa Etheridge.)

Sort by artist:
First artist: Aimee Mann
Last artist: 1000 Homo DJs
(Playing by Librarian's Rules that would be 3 Doors Down and Zachary Richard. No, I'm not going to try and figure out what it would be if last names were alphabetized properly. Even I have limits.)

First song that comes up on Shuffle: Ashley MacIsaac, "Sleepy Maggie"

Search the following and state how many songs come up:
Death - 5
Life - 22
Love - 87
Hate - 3
You - 206
Sex - 4

Well, that wasn't too painful, especially since I'd recently copped to the Terrence Mann.

Via [ profile] smithy161:

You might want to wander on over to The John Sheppard That Thing We Don't Talk or Hug About Meme here. It's like a love-meme, only John Sheppard style, so no 'omg, you're awesome!' where you could say 'hey', or give an affectionate punch on the shoulder.

My comment is here, just in case you were wondering.

Stolen shamelessly from [ profile] smithy161

I know very little about some of the people on my friends list. Some people I know relatively well. I read your journals, or we have something else in common and we chat occasionally. Some of you I hardly know at all. Perhaps you lurk, for whatever reason. But you friended me and I thank you for your interest in my words.

But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself. Any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: "Ah, there's so and so...they listen in rapture to the love-music of she-turnips." I might feel compelled to mock your musical taste, but I'll certainly remember you.

It would be great if every single person who friended me would do this. Yes, even you people who I know really well. Then post this in your own journal and see what gems of knowledge appear.

[ profile] nostalgia_lj wins teh internets. Basically, in this post here one can anonymously comment with a prompt for a fic, and people anonymously post a ficlet in response.

Some of the real winners include, "One where Captain Jack sexes up every single sentient being in the universe. Because it will happen eventually." and, "The Dalek from 'Dalek' downloads ALL the fanfics from the internet."

This is just what I needed to keep me from getting all emo about the end of season 3 tonight.
