MUSIC MEME
The Rules
Put your iTunes on random. Post lyrics from the first songs that play. Post it on your blog & let everyone guess the song & artist. When a song is guessed correctly, strike out the lyrics & post the title in bold. Looking the lyrics up on any search engine is cheating!! So, if you know the song – leave your guess in a comment. If you’re right, I’ll post your name (or link). Enjoy!

“To be honest, when I was writing these stories a million years ago, I never thought about movies at all one way or another. It would have seemed almost miraculous for these things to be movies someday. To me, they were just comic books that I hoped would sell so I could keep my job.”

– Stan Lee

(well, Mr. Lee… Spidey is back for his 3rd one on Friday… who knew!?)

Down boys. Kylie “ain’t no freakin’ lesbo”.

This was a little stunt pulled on some British talk show in the late 90’s.

Kylie was promoting her book, Geri Halliwell was promoting her first solo cd, and thus, TV magic was made.

I think Doom’s reply would be “Your money’s on the dresser, Chocolate.”

So wrong… on so many levels!

Catwoman #66 – So now we see what’s up with Holly back in Gotham City, and how she’s still getting into trouble for crimes Selina committed. Hope this issue keeps up with the fun we had seeing Selina in Metropolis!
Exiles #93 – Really fun arc, between Psylocke getting introduced, and an alternate reality where Wolverine and Sue Storm are married and leading Hydra. Fun times!
Fallen Son: Avengers #1 – The Avengers take (both teams) on the death of Captain America. Oh, and I LOVE the cover of this book!
Fantastic Four #545 – More fun with the replacements. It looks like those old stand-bys, Galactus & Silver Surfer are visiting. And just in time to cross promote the new movie. Good job guys!
New Excalibur #19 – The next chapter in (hopefully) a long story resolving a lot of those loose ends surrounding Captain Britain. Oh, and Dazzler still looks like a dyke.
Silent War #4 – Black Bolt is having trouble with a decision to go to war with the USA. So much drama, but no X-Factor this issue… oh well!
Wolverine #53 – More ass-whooping between Wolvie & Sabes. And Storm & Black Panther have given Logan the ok to “git ‘er done”.
Wisdom #5 _ So the shit is finally hitting the fan for our mutant poser-James Bond. Should be fun tho!
X-Men: First Class #8 – The last issue of a decent mini-series. They’re going to make it an ongoing later in the year, but I don’t think I’ll be picking it up. 8 issues was plenty! And I never thought I’d say that about an X-Men book!

Basic Rules – tell me the movie and who said it (actor or character) in a comment. Bonus points if you can guess the theme!

5. “Then the next time she squawks, walk right up to her and spit in her eye. That’s what I’d do.Wizard of Oz – Zeke (Bert Lehr) ***ShannonH & Howard

6. “That’s right, you gump-face, blown up, baboon-assed bastard!”

7. “You get what you settle for.Thelma & Louise – Louise (Susan Sarandon) ***ShannonH

10. “You mean all this time we could have been friends?”

Bjork – Earth Intruders (Mark Stent Extended Edit)
I’ve had a dickens of a time getting a good quality MP3 of this track. As far as I know, this is pretty close to the album version, just tweaked and extended a little, and pulled from the Australian iTunes. Hot song, can’t wait for her album next month!

Rihanna ft Jay-Z – Umbrella
Rihanna’s hot new single with Jay-Z. I swear I thought this chick would be a one-hit wonder. Now, Beyonce better watch out, because Ri-Ri is dying to take her place. Dope song!
