Man that just turned so sad at the end... but you that's pretty typical of most of the mixes I make. It's just odd that it happened at random.

This was really fun everyone should try this!

I have little idea about what you are talking about, because I don't have an IPod. I am just happy that I have heard of all but two of the artists. I just can't keep up with all of you dang kids and your crazy rock and roll record playing. Why, in my day...

Dr. Zaius-
Lay off it pops, quit hassling us kids...no but seriously everyone should have ipods they are great!

I'm glad to see someone else had as much fun with this as I did. I may have to try out the other ipod meme on your site.

Roxy Music is awesome, Eno and Ferry are gods.

Listen, you young whippersnapper, I was playing with action figures when you were still in diapers!

This is the part that I don't get. In step four you state:

"For every question, type the song thats playing."

Do you mean a question within the lyrics of the song? What question?

Regarding Shroom-Monkey's blog, I like his Catwoman background so well that I want to put Nancy Pelosi's head on it and splice in some cowering Republican congressmen in the foreground. (I mean that in only the very nicest possible way, of course.)

Becca said...

For every question (example "Opening Credits") you type in the name and artist of the song that is currently playing on your ipod. I suppose you could use media player if you haven't an iPod.

I think it's a tremendous honor to have your head ripped off and replaced by Nancy Pelosi's. The one on your blog with the swirly background is hypnotic!

"I think it's a tremendous honor to have your head ripped off and replaced by Nancy Pelosi's."

Figuratively speaking, of course.

I am glad you liked Emma Peel Pelosi! That was just a cheesy trick with a transparent gif and a table with an animated gif background. I have seen your photoshop work, and you are far better at it than I am. Maybe you could give me a few pointers. You may be able to photoshop the original image of Emma Peel [ 2 ] for something.

Becca said...

Hmm now that's a challenge! Now I have something to do this weekend.

And you don't give yourself enough credit, you rock at photoshop.
