Since I now have a new ipod, that means it is yet again time to interview my ipod!

Another Meme...this ones about random music...

1. Go to your media player/mp3 player and put it all on shuffle.
2. Say the following questions aloud, and after each one press play.
3. Use the song title as the answer to the question.


What do you think of me, iPod?
Soilbleed (Obszoen Geschoepf Remix) by Grendel.

This track opens with the sample "I am in a world of shit". So clearly, the OokPod thinks I'm in trouble.

Will I have a happy life?
30 Ghosts IV by Nine Inch Nails.

My life will be filled with ghosts? Or ambient music tracks? I'm not sure that sounds "happy" exactly.

What do my friends really think of me?
The Only One by Abney Park.

My friends think I am the only one? The only one what? The only one who rocks the socks of of the fox? The only one that doesn't know how much I smell? You're a tease, OokPod.

Do people secretly lust after me?
I Cry by Rotersand.

Okay, OokPod, you're just being mean now. Or are you crying because everyone lusts after me, and not you? Don't be sad, OokPod - I think you're sexy.

How can I make myself happy?
Back and Forth by Dr. Steel.

OokPod, you either think that I am very easily amused, or you have a dirty mind.

What should I do with my life?
The Real by Tech Itch w/ Don Davis.

So I shouldn't bury my head in imaginary worlds all the time? That's sound advice, I suppose.

Why must life be so full of pain?
I Am Cow by The Arrogant Worms.

So, I gather that you are an advocate of Veganism, then, OokPod?

How can I maximize my pleasure during sex?
Wicked Dickie.

Well, I think that settles the question of whether or not OokPod has a dirty mind. That or a very unfortunate fashion sense.

Will I ever have children?
Dozen Girls by The Damned.

OokPod, that's pretty unlikley. And that's a lot of kids.

Will I die happy?
Lost by Rotersand.

Don't spoil the final episode! I haven't seen it yet!

Can you give me some advice?
Bionic by Placebo.

Does that mean you think I *should* get Lasik?

What do you think happiness is?
Space Seed [live] by S.P.O.C.K.

Yes, OokPod definitely has a dirty mind.

What's my favorite fetish?

Queen of the Delta by Vernian Process.

OokPod thinks that I am into cross-dressers from New Orleans, I gather? In the final analysis, you and I haven't known each other that long, OokPod. I can see you've got a lot to learn about how we run things around here. But the dirty mind will certainly help.

1. Reply to this post and I'll assign you a letter.
2. List 5 songs that start with that letter.
3. Post them to your journal with these instructions.

[livejournal.com profile] stillsostrange gave me "R".


  1. Rainbow Disconnection by Sad Kermit. Because even muppets get sad sometimes.

  2. Rats by Rasputina (Yes, [livejournal.com profile] corwin77, clicking that link is a bad idea. Contains rats. In fact, no one watch the video, just minimize it and listen tot he song.)

  3. Re:Your Brains by Jonathan Coulton. I think I've been in meetings with the protag from this song.

  4. Red Right Hand by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. This song always makes me think of the old 90s TV show American Gothic. Which I think was only watched by me. Every time I hear this song I picture Gary Cole in a dusty black coat with stacks of green paper in his red right hand. Also, lookit the pretty pre-moustache Nick Cave!

  5. Romulan Ale by S.P.O.C.K. While looking through youtube, I found an utterly devastating fanvid for Rasptutina's "A Quitter", so I needed something silly to cheer me up. Couldn't find it online, sadly. S.P.O.C.K. are highly goofy.

Leave me a comment saying "Resistance is Futile."
• I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can satisfy my curiosity.
• Update your journal with the answers to the questions.
• Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.

From [livejournal.com profile] corwin77

1. How many games are you running at ACUS this year?
At least one, perhaps two.

2. If there is a Dude! sequel this year what would you like to see it involve?
Something featured in a scooby doo cartoon or Buffy episode - body switching, clones or something like that. For variety!

3. If I run my Future Soon game what character will you play?
Someone with goggles.

4. Have you read any D&D 4th ed. and why do you think it sucks most?
I read all the previews. I think it's just waiting for WOW to have better RP to replace it entirely. It's too strategically focussed.

5. Why have you never found/run a completely monkey based RPG?
Wait, Dude isn't monkey based?

[livejournal.com profile] laura_sm asked me:

1. Where/when/how did your enjoyment of costumes, outfits, and dressing up begin? Have you always enjoyed playing with clothing?

Really, I never outgrew playing dress-up as a kid. It's a big part of what drew me into being a goth, and certainly what kept me in the scene after I stopped being an angstbunny.

2. If you had all the time/money in the world, and all the skills, what piece(s) of clothing would you create?

Wow. Well, there's a few items here, and I can think of dozens more. Had I time, budget and skill I'd probably come out with a full line of weird every season.

3. If you suddenly had an unexpected day off, what would you do with it?

If it were just me with the day off, probably spend the day playing games or wasting time online, maybe with a long mid-day gym visit.

4. What would be your perfect job?

Making stuff. But, not always the same stuff. Coding, writing, costuming, etc. - it's all about creating something. Practically speaking, something where I can write code with occasional more visual stuff (CSS, web design, etc.) at a place where they don't care what I wear, some place within TTC range would be lovely.

5. Where does the nickname curgoth come from?

Curgoth was a super-villain for a comic that a friend and I were going to put out in the 90s. It was a sort of Image-style X-men ripoff. Curgoth (originally pronounced Sur-Gawth) was a black-skinned demon with clawed fingers and fire breath. I started using the name on BBSes, and later the internet, when I decided that "Blood Razor" (our super teams' Wolverine ripoff) was too ridiculously metal for a nickname. The pronunciation change to Kur-Goth came from a kid at a club in KW in 97 or 98. By the time I got around to thinking about it, I'd been using the name for quite a while, and I've never run into anyone else using it.

Playlist Challenge time again;

Ten most depressing songs. Post your own ten here or in your own LJ.


  1. The Swans, "God Damn The Sun"

  2. Rasputina, "A Quitter"

  3. Nine Inch Nails, "Hurt" (Depending on how old you are, Johnny Cash's version may pack a stronger punch)

  4. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, "The Weeping Song"

  5. Joy Division, "Love will Tear Us Apart"

  6. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, "Song of Joy"

  7. Tom Waits, "And No One Knows I'm Gone"

  8. VNV Nation, "Holding On"

  9. The Smiths, "Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me"

  10. Leonard Cohen, "Famous Blue Raincoat"



Some day I will get around to writing that post on religious imagery in VNV Nation songs.
Having just spent an hour going through my music looking for meditation music, I figured that it would be time for another edition of playlist challenge!

Rattle off five tracks good for meditation/zoning out.

My picks:


  1. Piece for Solo Flute by Dead Can Dance

  2. Colours of Rain by VNV Nation

  3. Divine Moments of Truth by Shpongle

  4. The Host of Seraphim by Dead Can Dance

  5. Legions (Reverie) by Zoe Keating



I've been less than level-headed lately, so I hope to try out my new 3.8 hour long meditation playlist some time soon. Maybe I'll have a different top five later.

New thing of the indeterminate time period; Playlist Challenge!

Wherein I come up with a theme, and provide ten tracks on that theme. Then you respond with ten of your own on-theme, in my journal, your journal, where ever.

This time on Playlist challenge, the theme is: science fiction. So, ten tracks on the theme of science fiction.

This memish thing is inspired by the WorldCon panel Playlists where four panel members came up with their own ten spec fic tracks and played them with commentary for the audience.

My picks: )

[livejournal.com profile] macman47 gave me "Top Five Web sites"


  1. Livejournal

  2. Environment Canada Weather

  3. I'd say Yahoo Calendar, but even those I use it, Google Calendar is far superior.

  4. The Pirate Bay. Dude, they tried to buy SeaLand.

  5. Facebook. It's actually pretty awful, but it has cool crap on it. At least it's not myspace.



Alternately;


  1. Not Always Right

  2. The Daily WTF

  3. io9Like Fleshbot, but for science fiction instead of porn.

  4. Feminism101

  5. QDB (better modding than Bash.org)

Reply for a list of your own

[livejournal.com profile] zingerella gave me "Top Five Black Foods" (which led me to the interesting cooking with colour)


  1. Licorice root extract. Ever had the raw stuff? Delicious, and sweet without calories.

  2. Beluga lentils. I love all lentils.

  3. Soya sauce. Sodium!

  4. Black beans. With garlic and, mmm...

  5. Black sesame paste. As seen inside dim sum!

  6. Squid ink gets an honorable mention, just for the squid.

Reply if you want a topic

[livejournal.com profile] corwin77 gave me "top five pirates"


  1. Guybrush Threepwood

  2. Blackbeard:
    "Such a day, rum all out: Our company somewhat sober: A damned confusion amongst us! Rogues a-plotting: Great talk of separation so I looked sharp for a prize: Such a day found one with a great deal of liquor on board, so kept the company hot, damned hot; then all things went well again."

  3. Jack Sparrow: But why is the rum gone?

  4. Anne Bonny

  5. The Ghost Pirate LeChuck

Reply to this post and I will (eventually) respond with something for you to post your top five or ten of.

[livejournal.com profile] nuadha_prime asked for my Top Five Goth Bands.

Old; Joy Division technically pre-dates goth, and SoM, Bauhaus and The Cure have all stated that they aren't and never were goth. Which is sooooo goth.

  1. The Sisters of Mercy

  2. The Cure

  3. Alien Sex Fiend

  4. Bauhaus

  5. Joy Division




New; The line between goth and EBM/"cyber" has gotten pretty blurry...

  1. The Birthday Massacre

  2. Abney Park (steampunk darlings, yes, but they sound like a goth band to me)

  3. Ayria

  4. Bella Morte (blurring over into punk/nu-metal, but they wearenough eyeliner to rank as goth in my book)

  5. The Cruxshadows



And a special award goes to The Swans for being the most bleakly depressing band of all time.

For [livejournal.com profile] much_ado

There once was a man from Nantucket
whose walrus oh so luved its bukket.
One day walrus groaned,
it had just gotten pwned;
Said the lolcat "O HAI, I JUST TUK IT".







(From here)
Going through old e-mails, I missed one!

You all know the deal by now.

Comment and I'll give you a topic for either a top five or a top ten.

[livejournal.com profile] delerium69 gave me; Top 10 fictional characters you'd love to be (can be any medium)
