and yes, i realize this is an lj question......... sorry
Which one are you?
And so this isn't a complete waste of space: Eddie Vedder recently did a cover of a song called Hard Sun, originally done by a somewhat obscure artist named Indio. A Myspace made by a third party with some of the person's music is here. http://www.myspace.com/tributetogordonpeterson
1)Have any of you guys ever heard of this person?
2)If so, have you been able to find his recordings anywhere?
3)Did you think this stuff on the MySpace, or his stuff in general, was any good?
4)Who are some other somewhat obscure/lesser known artists who you think deserve more recognition (people who are a bit more popular than just local bands, please. I'm sure you could all fill up a page with local bands you like, as could I)
what was the name of your high school's rival school?
right this second.. do you need a hug?
ETA: do you tend to remember random stuff about certain posts/questions that have been asked here in TQC? (not necessarily information about the person asking the question) ( Collapse )
what kind of drunk are you?
angry, fun, mean, tired, lame?
i've been told i'm a fun drunk. i go all night!
i used to use guitartabs.cc but apparently they are in the midst of legal troubles, and as such, pretty much took everything down.
do you think that sharing tabs over the internet should be considered copyright infringement?
2. it's my first year at college and i'm way too obsessed with christmas, so i'm asking this now. how should my friends and i go about having a lovely, joyful christmas party in our dorm?
Have any funny drunk stories?
Do you even drink?!
I am very drunk. I have pressed the delete button at least 20 times in this entry.
What is the best drunk text/comment/email/what have you that you have ever received? What's the best one you've ever sent?
( Collapse )
2. do you actually look at other people's ljs?
3. if you post a question in tqc, do you just post it and run or do you watch it to see the answers?
4. if you go to the gym, what do you do there?
5. in that episode of the simpsons where homer finds the "all night gym" and says "gym" to rhyme with "rhyme" (did i just blow your mind?), how would you spell gym? ghyme? gyme?
even if they were referring to it as in people in general?
And if he is an inmate, are there prisons that let their prisoners out to go to work? He works 11-7 five nights a week.
TYVM in advance, but I have a question. My SO's family have a HP computer which has HP updates on it.
How do you make that not run? When it runs, the whole harddrive is concentrating on running that and the computer is really slow! They have dual core, and it's supposed to be an advanced computer with gaming power.
WTF is this shit? How do you make the HP updates stop/not run? TYVM and have a nice evening/morning!
TQC, what are you doing this weekend?
So, what's your secret? I'm thinking, maybe some red bull will kick me in the ass.
Also, I went to a Stampin Up party. One of the cards we made involved stamping in something, then using a brush to add chalk to the wet stamp outline for a brushed/pastel type look. I didn't look at what the ink stuff was, but it was on a white pad. In some stores they have adhesive in pad form, but it requires heating for it to get sticky, and we didn't do that. Is it possible it was just white ink? I'm not sure how sticky normal inkpads are, but I don't want to buy stuff I'm not going to use... would regular white stamp ink be sticky enough for chalk to stick to it without smearing the design?
b) Have you hugged anyone for this reason?
c) How many vegetarians/vegans do you know?
( Collapse )
2. What did you dream of last night (or the last night you can remember/is interesting)?
3. Lj hasn't sent me a notification email. How about you?

1 - September 28; 7:37am
2 - Charleston, IL
3 - I am fascinated by True Crime books; My brother and sister are the most important people in my life; I met Sarah Jessica Parker.
4 - My cousin insisted that he'd die before he was 21. He died in a car accident when he was 18.
Is Knocked Up actually a good movie?
How can I keep my tongue piercing from stretching out? It kept stretching, so I kept putting in bigger jewelry. But the jewelry gets pretty huge after a point, so I took it out for a couple of weeks and it went down to about a 14g from an 8g. Now it's getting bigger again. Will anything keep that from happening?
2. I hate my job...in fact I call it Hell. Do you hate your job as much as I do?
3. any soccer fans that know women's soccer who is the name of the woman on the team that has the tattoo sleeve on the her right arm?

Would you ever commit suicide if a loved one died? Someone in one of the communities I moderate asked what people would do if their spouse died, and someone went as far as to say they would kill themselves. WTF.
Last night, there was a Republican debate at the historically black Morgan State University, primarily about minority issues. The top four Republican presidential candidates (Romney, Guiliani, McCain, Thompson) were no-shows. They said it was due to scheduling conflicts. What do you think of that excuse?
you tell us two truths and one lie [not necessarily in that order], we guess which one is the lie, and then you tell us if we're right

My mom took this test DECADES ago.. she said it was mostly memorization. She's the only person I know who can name all the fifty state capitols. and states in order of entry to the union. She also used to be able to name all the vice presidents in order, but I think she's really having a problem saying the name of the current one.
Discuss. And how does your answer on this jive with your answer on abortion rights?
What are you excited for?
Weekend plans ahoy?
question: is this cheating in your book?
do you say anything, turn around and walk out, or stay and watch?
What's pissed you off today?
i was told not to worry about providing two meals, just snacks, but i'm blanking on that even.
so dear TQC, can you help me?
what kind of eats can i/should i provide?
i need the questions and the answers, please!
i am not very good at internet searching, but i am going to continue looking.
Which of these is best for digging in your ears, aside from Q-tips? Save the lecture btw.
1) What kind of pizza do you want, guys? I'll share!
2) Should I finish my work and leave my desk all pretty and nice, or just slack off on TQC for the rest of the day?
3) Anything else I should do before 5pm today?
I met an autistic man who can memorize first and last names and how they are spelled and the day you were born. I was amazed. He asked me when my birthday was and I couldn't remember!
Any plans for the weekend?
I have to work all weekend. Next Saturday I'm going to give blood, go to a baby shower and work.
A) How often do you drive?
B) If you drive every day, how long do you spend in your car? How many miles do you go?

How did you go about doing it?
Did they wind up using your idea?
Also, how do you eat oreos?
So far I have 'Stardust' (though in that case it was more that someone else told him that she loved him and he was at first like 'oh okay then' because he was into someone else) and possibly Pride and Prejudice though Elizabeth WAS hugely angry at Mr Darcy...
And, have you ever seen that sort of thing happen in real life?
I'm exhausted and have to work 1 to 8:45pm tonight, where I will be on my feet pretty much the entire time. What can you recommend to make the night go easy?
I'm debating getting that five hour caffeine stuff, but am afraid it will give me a heart attack or something combined with my asthma medications.
Also, aside from going to doctors and getting real medication, what are herbal ways of combating depression? If needed I suppose I could see if my job would cover a doctor appointment, but I want to know other ways.
Write a research report that shows the steps that psychologists follow in conducting scientific research. Your report should target Juniors and seniors in your high school who are interested in scientific research. The purpose of the research is to provide the target audience with an overview of the steps that are followed to conduct research. Test your hypothesis using one of the research methods psychologists use: survey, cases study, observation, or experiment. Record the type of research method used, explain the procedures of the method, and describe the results obtained.
We were assigned the survey method. I really don't what kind of research question would be best for that method and I have no way to contact my teacher this weekend. Does anyone have any ideas? Please and thank you!
I lost 30 pounds between January and June this year. I was stuck at -30 pounds for about two months and recently I got myself into this "maintaining mode" and I gained back ten of these pounds. It's been stressing me out a lot because I worked so hard to lose the weight and I've been gaining it back. Getting back into my "diet mode" seems to be impossible. Everytime I screw up I just say fuck it for the whole day and do even worse.
My question is if this has happened to you where you have lost a bunch of weight then gained some back, how did you get back on track?
Did you just go, "OKAY STOP. I need to get back on my diet." and you just did it or was there something someone said or what.
I really would like to get back on track and lose the 10 pounds I gained along with 10-20 more and I just need some help with it.
Do you stay with this person, or is this information a dealbreaker?
2. You're at a bar/club/restaurant, minding your own business with your SO. You're having a good night, when a drunk guy/girl (same gender as you) at the table behind you starts insulting you and propositioning your SO. At first, you try and mind your own business, but the taunts are rather sharp and you get pissed and say something back. This enrages the drunk, who walks over and kicks you in the back and calls you a cunt/asshole. Nearby people are going OOOOOOO. You're the star of this unfolding melodrama and being judged. You stand up, ready to give this person either a piece of your mind or your fist, when you notice that this person has only one arm. The other ends at a stump right below the shoulder. You hesitate briefly. With the other patrons watching, your 3-limbed nemesis calls you another insulting name and jabs you in the nose, laughing at your failure to take action. Another OOOOO echoes through the crowd. Your move, hotshot.
What do you do?
2.) What's your favorite food byproduct? You know, like licking cake batter off the spoon or drinking the pickle juice.
3.) Whats the farthest you've ever driven and where were you going?
I want to go home and take a long nap.

2. What do you make with chicken apple sausage? What do you eat it with?
3. Do you you have any good pasta recipes? I wanted to make something with olives and feta and tomato sauce, but that seems bland.
4. Does this sound tasty? Would you eat it? Are ricotta and cottage cheese always interchangable?

3. Tomato soup or chicken soup?

What is the best software (besides Rosetta Stone) to learn German?
TQC, do you guys have any recommendations for programs that will minimize the chances of him fucking up again? For instance, I'm planning to switch from IE to Firefox because I think it's easier to use and has better pop-up blocking and stuff. What are your favorite easy-to-use antivirus programs, ad blockers, stuff like that? He's running on Windows XP if it matters.
Also, why do people like my dad, who shell out big bucks for computer protection software, end up killing their computers, while people like myself, who look at weird sites and download files from everywhere on the internet, never have problems with their computers? WHAT IS WRONG WITH HIM
What Do you think of it?
some of the questions they ask, I never learned before the 5th grade.
Are there any tv shows that you make a point to watch every week?
How often do you do disk cleanup and disk defragmenter on your computer?

Can You Help reccomend some songs for me?

*My lease ends Feb. 2009.
*My mileage limit is 36,000.
*My current mileage, 1.5 years into my lease, is 35,553.
WHAT DO I DO?
If I just keep driving and turn it in over mileage, it will cost $.20/mile. That is a LOT of money. I can purchase miles right now for the same price, but spread out over payments, but purchasing only 5,000 miles (which would go in like 3 months) would put my car payment from $289 to $350 and I can't really afford that.
If I break my lease, they spread out the remaining money (just over $4,000) over the months of my new lease/purchase, and according to the sales guy, this would be close to $500/month.
The only other option I can think of is to park my Jeep and buy a $1,000-$2,000 junker to drive for the next year until I can turn in my Jeep 6 months early with no penalty.
So, what would you do?
Drive and pay a huge fee at the end of my lease?
Buy miles now but have a huge monthly payment?
Break my lease and pay close to $500 for a new car (while possibly saving gas money b/c my Jeep eats gas like candy)?
Buy a junker to drive for a year and park my Jeep?
OTHER SUGGESTIONS PLEASE? This situation is starting to cause me HUGE anxiety.
I have other questions if you don't want to read the above:
1. how much debt are you in?
2. how many credit cards do you have?
3. what is the worst financial situation you've ever been in?

If you were to seduce someone, or simply allow someone to sleep on the couch in your room in an emergency, would you be told you're not allowed to, or would you be expected to pay for the extra person?
(Seriously, this friend of mine takes EVERYTHING personally and lashes out at anything. I once told her I didn't like a song she had on a mix tape in her car, and you would have thought I told her that her mother was a slut and I gave her an STD).
Please help! We're gonna be hanging out soon and I don't know how to deal with her. The last time I saw her, I only mentioned it in passing and she said that I was stupid to decide to stop drinking.

It requires a double boiler. I don't have one of those. Any way I can fake it? It's to melt chocolate chips with some butter, and later caramel and milk.

When it was all over, a part of his goodbye greeting was, "and maybe your husband can teach you how to parallel park." I had already told him I was single and um, well, I'm only 19. He had asked me questions about marriage as idle chat before, which I didn't find strange (I had said I just didn't know what would happen in my future). I didn't think much of it and was like, "okay, thanks" and went on my way, but now that I think on it it was a little weird.
What would your reaction to that be? What would you think?
I'm looking at getting a Windows-based laptop. Is there anything on the market right now with a feature that takes the heads off the hard drive when the computer senses G forces over a certain threshhold (like when it's dropped)? Or any other features for klutzy people like me? TEll me what 'toughbooks' are out there.
(fyi, I have never dropped my iBook, and I have no idea why my hard drive crashed. a feature like that would be a major selling point for me, however.)

Have you ever been in a situation where you want to yell said expletive/exclamation but can't say a damn thing?
Yeah, that's where I'm at now, which is why I can't answer my own question.
Does anyone else find this extremely odd and slightly confusing?
ETA: HE DID NOT KNOW WHAT TO ASK BEFORE HE REPLIED TO THIS. Thanks, bb, you ruined my post D:
2. I like to break things down in my head. Such as, the work day is 9 hours. There are four hours before lunch hour and four after. My morning snack breaks up the first four hours into two hour segments, and my afternoon snack does the same (I eat my peach at 10am, and my egg and veggies at 3pm). I also do this with distance on my dog walks, TV shows on the TV at the gym or number of songs I'll hear during my workout, etc.
Does anyone else do this?
3. For the drinkers out there: what will you be imbibing this weekend?

If you live with your SO, when you get sick how do you keep them from getting sick too? Or do you just share all the colds?
Well, nothing lasts forever and it's pretty much getting onto being shredded. Which brings up the understandable question...

Which flavor do you think would be your favorite?
Just curious. *looks innocent*
2. At what point do you consider putting a dog to sleep? When it has a terminal disease (renal failure, congestive heart failure, cancer)? When it has a hard time getting around (arthritis, old age), yet it's otherwise healthy? When it gets to a certain age?
My mom has a thirteen year old schnauzer with arthritic hips, but he's perfectly healthy. Some idiots in her family have suggested to her that she just 'let him go... peacefully'. But he's like a brother-dog to me, Mom loves him, and I want to tell my nosy Older Aunt to STFU.
3. At what age is it safe to call gray hairs 'premature gray'?
I'm thirty, and if things keep going the way they are, I'll be salt-and-pepper by the time I turn 35. Thank God for color-in-a-box.

My friend called from my SO's cell (they ran into each other in town). She said she had just missed her bus into the town I live close to, that she had to pick someone up there, I should meet her, and we'd all go back to her place and hang out. This was about 3:30pm. She said she'd be at a specific bus stop at around 4:45pm in my town, so I told her I'd show up there and wait for her. I got there at 4:45, and wait. Finally the bus she's supposed to be on pulls in at 5:15pm, and no one gets off at the stop. I double check the times, make sure there isn't any more buses coming soon (not another one til 6:00pm). I hang around for another 5 or so minutes, and then leave. She's no longer with my SO, and she doesn't have a cell, so I couldn't call her and be like "omgwhereareyou?!"
And more importantly, what do you think happened to my friend?
Yes. It frightened me.
2] When were you happiest in your life? Edit; Why?
3] What's the cutest/most romantic thing someone has done for you?
I had problems saying 'I love you' when my ex and I started going out, because I wasn't sure I did. So instead, he decided we should just say 'Aquafina,' and made an Urbandictionary entry on it. It was very adorable at the time.
have you ever been to a tanning salon? did you go tanning for a certain occasion? (prom, wedding, etc) were you happy with the outcome?
do you leave the tv on while you sleep?
is there a song that everybody and their momma seems to either know or LOVEEEE that you've never really ever HEARD or care to hear? (you just happen to know the name or the artist that sings it) for me it'd be Oasis - Wonderwall.

04. Who would win in a fight: Gandalf or Yoda?
I'm not saying that this is going to be the club's official dance, because I do not come close to possessing that kind of influence, but the pointed question is, if the universe were limited to only 3 dances and you had to select one for this community, which one would you go with? BTW, costumes are ESSENTIAL to the dance, whenever performed
