When it Memes, it Pours

I'd escaped being "tagged" for a long time, but now I've gotten hit with two in as many days. This time around, Bond has plopped the Meme with No Name in my lap. And away we go...

LIST FOUR SENTENCES YOU'VE NEVER SAID BEFORE:
1) I cried when "Full House" went off the air.
2) I can't wait to see the new Heather Graham movie.
3) Why can't I meet a guy like K-Fed?
4) Grease 2 was so much better than the original Grease. (It pains me to even say that in jest.)

LIST ANY NUMBER OF SONG TITLES THAT DESCRIBE HOW YOU'VE FELT THIS WEEK:
1) Every Day is a Winding Road, Sheryl Crow - And every day I miss my car!
2) I Wanna Be Adored, Stone Roses - Who doesn't?
3) It's Hard to Be a Saint in the City, Bruce Springsteen - I didn't know what he meant until I moved to New York.
4) Dizzy, Tommy Roe - I just haven't had much sleep lately!

IMAGINE YOU'RE HAVING THE IDEAL PERFECT DAY. WHAT FOUR THINGS WOULD YOU BE DOING?
1) Sleeping in late.
2) Driving to the beach with the windows down and the radio up.
3) Frolicking on the beach with a Jeremy Sisto lookalike. (I'm assuming the real one wouldn't be available.)
4) Completely vegging out, sipping on fruity drinks and watching the sunset.
(No one ever accused me of being high maintenance.)

MAKE UP FIVE CREATIVE NAMES FOR A NEW ROCK BAND:
1) Violent Jackass (There's actually a story behind this.)
2) The Misguided Russians (There's a story for this, too!)
3) Ubiquity
4) Pentarhombus
5) Zoot Suit Alors

CONGRATULATIONS! YOU GET TO GO BACK IN TIME AND ENSURE THAT THREE SONGS WERE NEVER WRITTEN, THUS SPARING HUMANITY FROM EVER HAVING TO HEAR THEM. WHAT THREE SONGS WOULD GET THE AXE?
1) Relax, Frankie Goes to Hollywood
2) Mambo No. 5, Lou Bega
3) In 'Da Club, 50 Cent
(I only get to save humanity from three?? So unfair.)

That's all, folks. Anyone can do this meme if they want, but I'm not going to tag anyone. See how nice I am? I told you in the last meme that I was a softie.

I knew you were not a huge Meme fan, and did not know you had gotten hit the day before- that was real interesting to read... But I really thought this was a special one and it had so many opportunities for you to use your "pop culture"

EXCELLENT job Beck... LOVED sentence #4 and your day was very cool... Band Names.. NOW you have to tell the story

Between you, Travis and I we might have saved the world by destroying those songs....

Travis said...

Ooooooh! I get to be a super hero with Bond and Beckeye, saving the world 3 songs at a time!!

Great job on this meme. I think this might be my favorite meme of all time.

Flannery Alden said...

I think I'll do this one too...it's not lame at all.

You're band names are great...Pentarhombus rocks!

I have a question for you: Do you like Grease 2 at all?

Writeprocrastinator said...

Why did you spare Brittney's not yet a woman, not a girl garbage fromt the axe???

Or William Hung?

Turnbaby said...

You must tell!!! I loved your day as well.

Becky said...

I think we all should have cried when Full House went off the air :P
No, seriously, the Olsen twins can do no good.

I know this is the first time I've visited your blog (it's awesome, by the way), but please do tell the story behind the song names! It would be quite cruel not to.

To everyone who wants the stories behind the band names...I never said they were "good" stories. :)
But here goes.

I came across someone's name at work one day, Violet Ackass. An unfortunate name as is, but I read it very quickly and thought it said Violent Jackass. I laughed for about 5 minutes.

As for The Misguided Russians, it was something that was said about my friend's band website. For some reason, they kept getting all these posts on their message board from Russian spammers, on everything from cheap cigarettes to mail order brides. Someone finally said, "What's with the misguided Russians?" and I just thought it was such a great band name.

Nice meme... I like the unusual questions. I also like your ideas for the perfect day. A drive to the beach in a convertible is a fabulous idea!

 

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
