They call me Mimi...

Well, I thought it might be a cute title considering I'm posting two memes in here. Get it? Mimi=Meme. Okay, maybe it was cooler in my head than it is here. Plus, you have to know Rent to really get it.

So here are a pair of music memes from Chase and S.J.

Miscqueensrycheom2Tickle Your Pickle:
As described by Chase, "list seven songs you're into right now. Old, new, whatever... just whatever is ticklin' your picklin' at the moment."

So here goes:

  • Sugar, "The Slim" from Copper Blue
  • Jane's Addiction, "Superheroes" from Strays (you may recognize this song as the theme from HBO's Entourage)
  • Kris MacQueen, "If I Lift My Hands" from BrokenHearted Palace
  • Queensryche, "I'm American" from the forthcoming Operation: Mindcrime II
  • Pearl Jam, "World Wide Suicide" from their forthcoming self-titled album
  • Guster, "The New Underground" from the One-Man Wrecking Machine single
  • Jeff Buckley, "Hallelujah" from Grace (Damn you, Johnny; I had forgotten all about this until I read your blog)

How are those?

Band for a Lifetime:
Choose a band/artist and answer ONLY in titles of their songs.

I'm gonna try this out with my boys, the Foo Fighters. Luckily I have my iPod loaded up with all their albums and even a few rare singles.

Miscfoofighters11. Are you male or female?
"Weenie Beenie" (it was the best I could do)

2. Describe yourself:

3. How do some people feel about you:
"My Hero"... not likely... probably more like "M.I.A."

4. How do you feel about yourself:
"Good Grief"

5. Describe your ex boyfriend/girlfriend:
"Stacked Actors" (tell me that one's not perfect)

6. Describe your current significant other:

7. Describe where you want to be:
"New Way Home"

8. Describe how you live:

9. Describe how you love:
"Best of You" (the title sounds more positive than the song really is; so let's go with how it sounds)

10. What would you ask for if you had just one wish:
"See You"

11. Share a few words of wisdom:
"Another Round"

12. Now say goodbye:
"Come Back"

Those were fun!

As per usual, no tagging. But if you'd like to steal them, feel free.

ms. sizzle

i love jeff buckley's hallelujah. one of the best songs ever really. now i have to go listen to it. right this instant!

mimi- hee hee. i saw rent. i get it. clevah!


i am listening to the new pearl jam song on a continuous good is that song???!!! bring on the new album!!


Chase, I'm going to have to find some of this Blue October music. I'm not at all familiar with them. But you've been raving, so it must be done.

Sizzle, isn't that a great song? As for the Mimi/meme thing... I've always wondered how to pronounce the word "meme." Is it "meem" or "meme"? So when I was thinking about it while writing this post, Rent popped in my head and not because of Mikey's post about the movie. I actually wrote this well before he did. Pretty funny coincidence, though. And I thought "meme" and the song just popped in there. Great play.

Amen Korova! I love it. I first heard it in the iTunes New Music Tuesday podcast. Great stuff. Did you get the second single as well? That one's good, too. Tickets for their tour go on sale here this weekend. Trying to scrounge up money! Ohhhh, PJ! I've gotta go. I've been to the shows on their last two tours; can't break the streak!


I'll have to give the band choice some thought...

As for meme, I've always thought it was one syllable. The 2nd ep. of Dr.Who that aired on SciFi last week supports this theory since they had a culture known as the "Order of the repeating Meme." I've just exponentially upped my geek factor, right? C'est la vie.


Loved how you described Katie. So sweet!
I might steal those for another post......


Yah, according to the dictionary it's pronounced "meem." Great job, Kev! Very clever choices (I don't think I've heard the story behind #5). Makes my Eagles one seem kinda blah, but the titles were just so right.

Blue October sounds like a damned intriguing band. Gotta give 'em a listen.

This is a fun meme, huh? Dave2 did a great job with Depeche Mode.


Claire, yes you are a geek. I'm in good company. Although I've never seen Dr. Who.

Jacynth, steal away!

SJ, it cannot possibly be "blah" if it has inspired so many others to want to do it, too. Aside from Dave and me, there's Chase in the comments and Nicole on her blog. If yours were boring, we never would've bothered. You're the meme-master... or "mistress" as it were.


totally brilliant. will post mine on my blog soon. you and dave are the coolest cats alive.


DUDE, Mimi sounds sooo familiar. Hmmm? I'll give you one tag now. Describe your current significant other:
When the hell are you going to come into my life!!!


Am now bitter. I spent several weeks getting Hallelujah OUT of my head and now it's back! Kevin, it's war. I'm going to have to start posting about Hanson again!


Xtine, thanks! Looking forward to it.

Mikey, it will happen soon enough, I'm sure. Stay strong.


NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Not Hanson!!!!!!!

Oh God! NO! Here it comes! MUST. SUPPRESS. IT.




The Foo! Very good choice... :)

Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to go look listen to Buckley's Hallujiah... (except spelled correctly.)



Hallelujah is a word that comes from a language that uses a different alphabet than ours. So there are multiple ways of spelling it. This is the way that it is spelled on the album and the way I see it spelled most often, so I'm running with it.
