Step 3: Post and let everyone guess the song and artist.

Your result for The PolyAmory Test...
You scored... 90% = PolyAmorous
[I wonder if the reason it's 90% poly was I didn't want to go straight to BiParadise.com? ;) ]
1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicize those you intend to read.
3) Underline the books you LOVE.
4) Reprint this list in your own LJ so we can try and track down these people who've read 6 and force books upon them.
And I'm adding:
5) Score through ones you did not like/could not finish
Note: I'm only counting as read the ones I can distinctly remember reading. I'm sure I've read some of the ones I haven't marked, but no clear memories of it.
( I've read six of the first TEN. )
1. Put your music player on random.
2. Post the first line from the first 20 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
3. Let everyone guess what song and artist (or musical) the lines come from.
4. Embolden the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!( So here's the list )
Your result for The '2001: A Space Odyssey' Test...
You are the master of the Solar System and the next evolution of humanity. You know everything (or just about everything) about 2001. You must spend a lot of time hanging around in your glowing orb looking at Earth.
(P.S. For some reason it is putting everyone in the top category at 95 points even though there are only about 26 on the test. The categories from most points to least points are: Star-Child, Dr. Dave Bowman, HAL9000, Dr. Heywood Floyd, Dr. Frank Poole, Post-Monolith Apes, and Pre-Monolith Apes.)
Your result for The Doctor Who Companion Test...
Still, you've made some stupid decisions in your time, and The Doctor isn't likely to let you forget them. In fact, despite your worldliness and age, you still can't seem to keep up with The Doctor as fast as some of his other companions. Maybe it just wasn't meant to be.
| You scored as Stan Marsh. You're Stan Marsh! Probably the sanest of the group, you're the mastermind behind the good plans and can easily resolve problems. To you love is amazing, and you're probably already in it. You can be a smart ass and don't have a problem saying what's on your mind. And you're probably an activist. Dude, this is pretty fucked up right here.|
What South Park Character Are You?
created with QuizFarm.com
So I am mentally fuzzy, and a little woozy, so not all that productive today. I did manage to get out in the past couple of days to spend time with banhe, sheonamcc and ambersrequiem, which helped recharge my batteries a bit. Trout on Thursday was good, but I did despoon a lot at about half nine. What a pain.
What I need to do in the next day or so is actually go through the addresses I got at Eastercon and organise them. I suppose I should really wait until I can be sure I can focus on the text...
One programme item at Contemplation, of course, was the screening of Doctor Who. It was not the pile of steaming ordure which the first episode was, so it was very well received. But I watched it again last night on BBC4 and... it really was not very good, was it?* (I actually almost feel asleep during it.) I would almost rather watch The Gunfighters again... Actually, strike that
If only that were the worst thing on television last night. A new series of Have I Got News For You started last night, and I watched that... and wished I had not, because what immediately preceded it? An election broadcast by the BNP. Where is an emoticon for
jaw hitting floorwhen you need one?
As you might expect, the actual words they delivered were very carefully chosen so as not to frighten the horses. (They are not, unfortunately, so mentally challenged as the NF were.) But the imagery...! At one point, behind the talking head, there was a graphic of shuffling, slope-shouldered, zomboid silhouettes and the text
immigrants everywhere.... OMFG! I am trying to work out if there is any chance of this bunch getting a representative into Holyrood, but my head is not clear enough. There are places like Ibrox to take into account. How many votes does it need for one of these twunts to get in on the Glasgow list?
Also WRT the elections... I was not pleased to learn from banhe the other afternoon (yes, I have not been keeping up with all the news, either!) that the SNP have taken Souter's money. *head in hands*
At least we have the options of Greens and a local independent here.
Gah. I am going to have to go and take some medication, I think. In the meantime, here is a wee meme I have picked up via loveandgarbage and sharikkamur. How this works is: you go to IMDB and pick 10 of your favourite films. Pick 3 plot keywords from each and see if people can guess what they are. Here are my ten films for you to guess (no cheating by looking them up!):
1: Messiah, Payphone, Negative Footage [2001: A Space Odyssey, guessed by blue_condition]
2: Ice Age, Throat Slitting, Title Spoken By Character
3: Catholic Church, Neo-Nazi, Condom
4: Rain, Paranoia, Ocean
5: Anti-Conformity, Peace, Mud [Woodstock, guessed by blue_condition]
6: Satire, Redhead, Military
7: No Opening Credits, Unspoken Love, Sword Fight [Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, guessed by soon_lee]
8: Hitler, Nazi, Swedish Sex Bomb [The Producers, guessed by loveandgarbage]
9: Air Base, Decoder, Torpedo
10: Very Little Dialogue, Character Name In Title, Firework
I have tried to pick keywords which are not the obvious for most of them, although in two of the more obscure I have taken one obvious keyword at least; one film is from this century, most are more than 20 years old. Three of the films are in languages other than English. One is in English and another language.
And now, here is exactly the same thing done for TV programmes:
A: Character Name In Title, Time Travel [Play For Today: The Flipside of Dominick
Hide, guessed by wibbble]
B: Conspiracy, Demolished Town, Sequel
C: Sex, Student, Hospital
D: Midget, Conversion, Heathen
E: Religious Differences, Pursuit, Morality [Battlestar Galactica, guessed by loveandgarbage]
F: Hit And Run, Hospital, Police [Life On Mars, guessed by wibbble]
G: Famous Opening Theme, Corridor, Ethics [Doctor Who,
H: War Room, Scandal, Election
I: Cult Favorite, Interracial Relationship, Famous Score [Star Trek, guessed by wibbble]
J: Cult Favorite, Surreal, Ensemble Cast
This list contains three American programmes, all the rest are British; there are two comedy series; seven are classifiable as SF. None of them are obscure (there were obscure ones I was tempted to use, but not having more than one keyword made that difficult ;o) ).
[*All right, that was an understatement. There is a very happy goat in the corner...]
You fit in with:
Your ideals mostly resemble that of a Humanist. Although you do not have a lot of faith, you are devoted to making this world better, in the short time that you have to live. Humanists do not generally believe in an afterlife, and therefore, are committed to making the world a better place for themselves and future generations.

homescreen to discover what we're about.
You scored 66% Gender-Abolitionist, 80% Sexually Liberal, and 20 % Socialist
You are the Gender-Liberal. This means that you share qualities with both Liberal Feminists and Gender Abolitionists. Like the Liberal Feminist, you feel political change needs to be done on a small-scale level through legislative change, not necessarily through a massive destruction of class society through the adoption of an extremist socialist stance. You are also very concerned with sexual liberation, and feel that women should be free to do what they please sexually without criticism, just as men should be free to do. However, you differ from the Liberal Feminist culturally, because you see gender as a social construction that needs to be destroyed. Like the Gender Abolitionist, you realize that gender is often perceived as one's identity, when it should only be perceived as a small, insignificant part of that person. We shouldn't be able to say "This person IS a woman". Rather one should say something more akin to "This person HAS the physical traits of a woman". This way, we wouldn't be assuming someone's physical traits are a part of their identity, and we couldn't use this difference to oppress them or categorize them. In short, you advocate extreme cultural change through the destruction of gender roles, but politically you are less extreme, instead focusing on individual or legislative change as opposed to a massive change of ideology.
