The Movie Soundtrack Meme

I found this meme floating around the internet this morning and figured it would make for a good time waster and an excuse to listen to some music.

So, here’s how it works:

1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every section of the movie, type the song that’s playing

No cheating now…we’d all love to cherry pick the soundtrack to our movie, but you gotta’ follow the rules…

But first, how about a movie poster to go along with my soundtrack?

First Day At School:Billion Dollar BabiesAlice Cooper (Well, we’ve certainly switched gears here…)

Falling In Love:GogomobilCarlo Montez (Sweet, this is a jazzy European instrumental number that riffs on the Neil Hefti theme from BATMAN)

Getting Back Together:Hippa To Da HoppaOl’ Dirty Bastard (I know, I’m such a romantic…Samples “It’s A New Day” by Skull Snaps and “Sing A Simple Song” by Sly & The Family Stone)

Wedding:Slayers” from John Carpenter’s VAMPIRES The Texas Toad Lickers (I would like to imagine that this was the band playing at the wedding…know why? Here’s a list of the musicians: John Carpenter – keyboards, piano, guitar and bass, Steve “The Colonel” Cropper – guitar, Donald V.”Duck” Dunn – bass, Rick Shlosser – drums, Jeffrey “Skunk” Baxter -electronic guitar, dobro and steel pedal, Joe Robb – saxophone, Bruce Robb – Hammond B3 organ…’nuff said.)

Death Scene:Gasoline DreamsOutkast (Don’t everybody like the smell of gasoline?)

Funeral Song:Killing An ArabThe Cure
(Weird…my funeral is set to a song based on “…one of the most famous French novels of the twentieth century…” and is considered to be “…among the best literary expositions of the absurdity of human existence in an indifferent universe.“…nice.)

End Credits:Break My BodyPixies (After FIGHT CLUB we all know that the Pixies are a fine way to close your film.)

Well, not exactly what I would have picked, but interesting none the less….If any of you knuckleheads participate in this here meme, let me know…I’m a sucker for soundtracks.

I wonder what would happen if I did it again?

Things I Decided Today

Need help with Chemistry?

Just ask a drug dealer.

Thanks Ghost, oh and you too Chef Reakwon!

Awesome sample by Jimmy Van & Richard Hieronymus!

Two For Tuesdays

What with all the hype about IRON MAN lately, today’s twofer was just too damn obvious.


The one, the only, Toney Starks!

What’s there to say about the bathrobe wearin’, fish eatin’, champion belt holder, master of the crying style that his music can’t say for him?

This song blew me away back in the mid 90s…and once I saw the SPEED RACER video I just about lost my shit!

DAYTONA 500 from IRONMAN

Who says Ghost can’t hit you with a club banger? Well, whoever said it deserves a COFFEE JOINT up their ass!

CHERCHEZ LA GHOST from SUPREME CLIENTELE

And to all you smart dumb cats…here’s where our Ghostface Killah came from:

Peep the FIVE ELEMENTS TECHNIQUE!

Whatever, whatever, whatever…

Toofer…Trust the Fisherman and Tina Fey!?

When was the last time you had fish sticks?

You remember, frozen sticks of fish from a bright yellow box?

Let’s see, it’s been at least 10 years since I scraped the freezer burn off a dozen or so fishy treats to make a meal…but the other night The Wife and I actually made a meal out of:


“Tasty fish with a crunchy, golden coating. It’s no wonder Fish Sticks are an all-time family favorite! For a meal or even as an after-school snack, Gorton’s Fish Sticks can’t be beat!”

Oh snap! As Ghostface said in “Black Jesus”,”Who wanna rhyme? Who wanna challenge the swordsman, that rock that fisherman hat like Gorton’s!” We do, dammit!

And did we ever. Thanks to a Weight Watchers’ recipe, we cooked up some marvelous FISH STICK TACOS!

First, you crack open the box:

I love the way they’re just tossed in the box there…no fancy freezer protection bag or nothin’.

Lay down some foil, a little cooking spray, and finally the sticks:

Bake, uncovered (450°F 9-11 minutes, turning 5 minutes) or until coating is golden brown and crunchy (According to the Gorton’s website)…do some other stuff with some spinach, cheese, hot sauce, sour cream, and a tortilla…..and voila!

Daaaammmmnnn, those were some good fish tacos right there…and only 5 points (for you guys and gals that are watching your figures)! I like them so much, I wanna’ take ’em behind the middle school and get ’em pregnant!

After our dinner we settled into our 30 Rock Season 1 marathon. I was curious about this show….it was getting all this great press and Alec Baldwin was in it. I know what you’re thinking, “What about Tina Fey?”
What about her? I didn’t really care for her Fallon-femme thing on SNL…ugh, fucking Fallon. Truth be told, their smarmy, hipper than me news segments left me cold and a little pissed off. So, needless to say, I was a bit worried about 30 Rock since she was the creator, star, and a writer.

Worries be damned…I love this show….and, I’m totally crushing on Tina Fey. Who’d a thunk it?

Hmmm, Tina Fey?

It’s totally the Liz Lemon character I’m really crushing on. I mean, she got that whole “cute girl who doesn’t really know how cute she is” thing going on along with a great sense of humor, odd ball dance moves, controlling personality (with a dash of self doubt), and a wicked scar on her face…Man, I love scars. Oh, and she has this in her office:

A 1968 French La Planete Des Singes poster…now that’s hot.

So, the show is high-larious. I’ll be sad when we finish Season 1, but I guess there’s always Season 2 to look forward to…oh, real quick, while reading up on 30 rock I stumbled upon a reference from the show that I wasn’t familiar with. Liz calls Toofer, Chocolate Rain….funny right? I guess, but not as funny until you see where the reference comes from:

Oh, snapitty, snap, snap! Have you seen the Dr. Pepper commercial Tay Zonday did?

Wow. T-a-y. T-a-y-to the Z!
