My Life Through iTunes
Another of those Use iTunes Shuffle to Answer Random Questions and Hope Something Makes Sense games...
As you meme frequenters know, sometimes these results aren't very entertaining. So in the interests of making this worth your while to read, I did this quiz three times and picked the most entertaining (read, not the BEST) answers. Artistic liberty is to be allowed at all costs!

What's my life like?
"Bittersweet", John Mayer & Kanye West
-- It's true. As always, John never lets me down when it comes to understanding my life. For anyone who's never heard of this song before, it was a recording from a trial jam. It's never been released.

"Change Clothes / Piggies, Dear Prudence", DJ Dangermouse

"Humans are Predators Too", Carter Burwell

Am I a good person?
"Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)", John Mayer
-- I am just going to state for the record that this song is special and is the first song that I seriously seriously contemplated choreographing. The JM arrangement, especially the concept of doing a live recording and mixing the sheer coolness of Marvin with John's easy guitar riffs and DJ Logic's funky record scratching, is just... shiok.
Do I make others happy?
"All Eyes on Me", Goo Goo Dolls
-- I guess so!
[well, the pictures aren't going to take themselves!]
