Rock Star
You scored 92%!
You damn rock star. You know all the basics, and if you got any wrong, I bet it was that stupid Traveling Wilburys question. Your friends are probably intimidated by your knowledge of classic rock and envy your impressive collection. When a classic rock song comes on the radio, you can probably identify it before the vocals kick in most of the time. You probably get good scores on the "maiden name of Clapton's mom" tests, too.

My test tracked 1 variable How you compared to other people your age and gender:

You scored higher than 99% on notes

I wish it told you which you got wrong, as I am positive I did get the Traveling Wilburys question right. hee.

By the way, I think everyone who's anyone already knows about [livejournal.com profile] bubbleficathon 2006, but if you don't, what are you waiting for? An invitation? Oh, wait.

  • Repair man came and the refrigerator is working again. I was right: Mice had chewed through the cord. (I'm psychic! I rule! Except this sucks, so not.) Of course this wasn't covered by our warranty, so $92 for labor, and...TEN BUCKS for a new cord. I repeat: Being a grown-up. SUCKS.

  • Y&R was cheese-tastic and awesome today. Once I saw the synospis, "Cassie leads Nick on a Dickensian journey through what might-have-been," I was all, 'Aw yeah! Bring on the schmaltz!' But despite a couple cheesy moments, I thought they did a pretty great job.

    When Cassie and Nick went wandering through alterna-GC, I thought, 'Wow, so Nick had the power to make everyone in Genoa City happy. If he had only known!' I thought it was nifty that the Y&R folks turned that on its head and addressed the fact that um, no, Nick does not have that kind of power. Yes, he made a decision that had awful repercussions, but he is not responsible for everyone's misery and the bad decisions they have made.

    It has to be the best soap out there. I'm just sayin'.

  • I see that the Cars are touring with Todd Rundgren as lead. I like Todd Rundgren and all, but I know Ric Ocasek, and you sir, are no Ric Ocasek. (I am probably betraying my punk street cred by saying so. Back in the day, Todd Rundgren was big in the NY punk scene. [Him and Liv Tyler's skeezy mother. Sorry, Liv, love you, but your mom is ew.])

  • I have been watching some of VH1's "We Are the 80s," and it totally gives me warm fuzzies. I love 80s videos! They all had either that sharp, fluorescent lighting, or that soft, warm, fuzzy glow. Eighties videos are just the best. Like, I saw Madness's video for "It Must Be Love." A guy dressed up in a bumble-bee costume! A giant chicken falling from the sky! Singing over an open grave!

    You know what's sad? Someone over the age of 10 who can't name all four of the Beatles. A woman at work was just describing last night's Grammy tribute to someone who didn't watch, and her description went like this: )
