The Onion A.V. Club has a feature that they call Random Rules, in which somewhat famous people set their mp3 player to shuffle and say something about each song that comes on. My favorite contributor so far has been Isaac Brock of Modest Mouse. He has the f-word to normal word ratio of a stoner seventh grader, but he’s pretty funny.
Everybody knows you’re only as cool as your music collection, so here’s your chance to show how cool you are. Set your mp3 player or computer music program to shuffle and tell us the first few songs that come up and say something about them. No cheating to make yourself look cool. The coolest person wins a big prize provided by one of the gainfully employed KBers (i.e. not me).
I’ll go first.
Ashlee Simpson, “Pieces of Me”
Uh. How did that get on there? I do not think this is a great song, I do not think that Ashlee’s airy, auto-tuned voice is sexy, and I do not wish she would write me back. I’m so over you, Ashy. Skip.
Cast of Saturday’s Warrior, “The Circle of Our Love”
I think my wife got ahold of my iPod. I don’t like this stuff at all. Honestly. But the circle of mine and my wife’s love does extend beyond the reach of time. Beyond the span of days and years, it goes forever. Forever and ever.
Constantine Maroulis, “Truck Stop Sally”
Finally, some real Rock n’ Roll that shows how cool I really am. If you haven’t heard his album, Pray For the Soul of Betty, do so without further delay! What a great singer! And what a great chin cleft!
OK, that’s just me trying to be funny. I’ll post my real Random Rules in the comments.
