Music Meme


Just a fun little meme I spotted on a few other SL-related blogs today.

1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every question, type the song that’s playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button
6. Don’t lie and try to pretend you’re cool…

  • Opening Credits: Western Wind (Demo) – Saint Etienne

  • Waking Up: No Matter What You Do – Love

  • First Day At School: Kelly – M83

  • Falling In Love: Urban Landscape – Robert Fripp

  • Breaking Up: Patrolling Wire Borders – Brian Eno

  • Prom: Intro to Fraulein – DEVO

  • Life’s Ok: Holiday Hymn – Orange Juice

  • Driving: From the Gut – Husker Du

  • Flashback: These Important Years – Husker Du

  • Getting Back Together: Nothing Left 2 – Orbital

Hmm, two Husker songs in a row, wonder what the odds are…?

Twitter for Second Life


! (Twitterrific)! The inimitable Ordinal Malaprop has created TwitterBox, an object for sending and receiving tweets from the Twitter service. A couple of prominent SLers are Twittering already including Mark Wallace of 3PointD and the never dull Prokofy Neva. The icon is from IconFactory’s awesome Twitterrific (Mac OS X only).
