Nevermind The Magic 8 Ball ...

I am convinced that iTunes has synced up with my brain.

Once in a while, I ask a question, a la The Magic 8 Ball, and with iTunes set on Shuffle, click to see what song comes up as an "answer" to my question. The results are often astounding. As of right this moment, I have 3,880 items in iTunes (a couple of those are videos, but they'd still be relevant answers, I'm guessing), so the possible answers are pretty broad.

I was just clicking through random blogs and ran across one that posed a list of questions with instructions to set my music player on shuffle, ask a question, then see what song came up. This is my list. Some of them are obscure, some of them crack me up, and the one that asks what song will be played at my funeral is too perfect.

How does the world see me?
Exile - Lisa Gerrard

Will I have a happy life?
Tears to Tell - Howard Jones

What do my friends really think of me?
Selling the Drama - Live

Do people secretly lust after me?
Calling Elvis - Dire Straits
(Does this mean they don't lust after me and would rather hook up with a dead rock legend?)

How can I make myself happy?
It’s About That Time - The Idea

What should I do with my life?
Of The Girl - Pearl Jam
(I should become a lesbian?)

Will I ever have children?
Dancing in the Dark - Bruce Springsteen

What is some good advice for me?
I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For - U2

How will I be remembered?
Precedent - Howard Shore

What is my signature dancing song?
Crazy (If I Was Trev Mix) - Seal

What do I think my current theme song is?
Echoes of Harlem - Duke Ellington

What does everyone else think my current theme song is?
Your Song - Elton John

What song will play at my funeral?
Daddy’s Gonna Pay for Your Crashed Car - U2
(Hey, how's that for clever?!)

What type of men do I like?
Clarinet Quintet in B Minor, Op. 115, Con Moto - Johannes Brahms
(Do I unwittingly like fivesomes?)

What type of women do I like?
Take It With Me - Tom Waits

What is my day going to be like tomorrow?
Desire - U2

A Totally New Concept in Magic Forums has arrived!

Introducing MAD (Magical Arts Domain, in case you were worried!) – a fun, friendly forum with an emphasis on teaching and learning…from beginner to seasoned Pro. Finally, somewhere where dedicated newcomers to Magic, both young or old, can come and learn the hottest effects and related magical skills without fear of being continually told, ‘You can’t discuss that here’!

Categorically NOT a so-called ‘exposure’ Forum, MAD does, however, both allow and actively-encourage frank and free discussion of any and

every effect and routine between it’s members. We encourage and support the Magical education of our members,in the same fashion you’d find at a ‘physical’ magic-club or organisation.

With varying levels of access to effects taught, dependant upon member-participation, MAD strikes the balance that other forums fear to strive for…all whilst encouraging a real sense of community and fun – hope to see YOU there soon!
