Go to your music player, set it to shuffle/random, and answer the
following questions with the title of the FIRST song that you skip
to each time.
– note: I never do these but did it for the first few and was fairly amusing so carried on
If you reached the top of Mount Everest, you would scream:
Turn – Travis
The next time you stand up in front of a group of people, you'll say:
Scar Tissue – RHCP
Your favorite thing to say when drunk is:
Shame on You – Hot Hot Heat
Your message to the world:
Fake Tales of San Francisco – Arctic Monkeys (doesnt really work now does it)
Your deepest secret:
The Seer's Tower – Sufjan Stevens (arrgghh, its going wrong)
Your innermost desire:
I Remember – Damien Rice (ok, clearly people just make these up, its not working)
Your oldest memory makes you think:
Politik – Coldplay (bollocks to this)
Somewhere in your wedding vows, you'll include:
Help Me Rhonda – Beach Boys (I dont know anyone called Rhonda, and certainly wont be marrying her)
On your deathbed, you'll whisper:
Watch They Fly Sundays – Stereophonics (I bet I dont)
Your friends say behind your back:
The Joker – Fatboy Slim (hooray, one kind of made sense)
You say behind your friends' back:
Zuton Fever – The Zutons (no I dont, why would I do that?)
Your opinion of Warwick Blogs:
Sunworshipper – Mylo (eh?)
When you wake up in the morning, you mutter:
North West Three – Fatboy Slim (only if im drunk, or hiking somewhere I guess)
If you found yourself lost on a desert island, you'd yell:
Haiti – Arcade Fire (well I guess desert island is quite relevant there)
Right now, your feelings are:
Scared of You – Nelly Furtado (another one that works, good music player)
What's your excuse for reposting this bulletin?:
Black Eyed Boy – Texas (not unless he's been punched)
Your life's soundtrack:
Hurt – Johnny Cash (finish on one that works, and is horribly depressing at the same time – fucking great song though)
OK, so I seriously think people cheat on this, although a few of them did sort of work. Its all clearly just a huge timewasting exercise anyway so nevermind. I'm still worried by the last choice though.

Just had a ridiculously long conversation/debate over which is better, books or film versions of books. I find it hard to see how people can argue that by putting a book onto film it can ever make it better. If you've read a book as it should be read then how can someone elses interpretation of it surpass your own imagination and understanding of it?
I'm interested in peoples opinions on this, and expecially if people can suggest and films that they think are better than the books they come from.

OK, so the acts are announced on Monday, but does anyone have any suspicions as to who these 3 'world class' acts may be? I'm not at Warwick at the moment and so am not party to the rumours that may be spreading their way around campus, although I have heard Nizlopi are one of the acts. If this is true, I hope there are still 3 world class acts to be announced because if thats the ents departments view of world class I do begin to worry.
So any suggestions…

All I know is that it was on an island that I don't live on and was quite possibly outside.
This worries me slightly.

..can describe my disgust.
My (albeit Canadian) roommate just let me know that he thought Mick Jagger was in The Beatles.
Being North American is no excuse, although does offer some explanation.
Last night (this morning) I went to bed at 1.30am and commented on how it was nice to get an early night.
I am now officially a Hong Konger.
