You can learn a lot about someone by the music they listen to. Hit shuffle on your iPod or mp3 player and write down the first 20 songs. No cheating or skipping songs that are shameful. That is the fun!

(I barely have any music on my ipod because it's really my iphone and has no space. So this is coming from a limited version of my musical taste. Also, I'm going to skip artist repeats.)

1. Desert Kisses - Siouxsie and the Banshees
2. Shadowboxer - Fiona Apple
3. People Of The Far North - Nobuo Uematsu (FF X Piano Collection)
4. Samurai - Juno Reactor
5. Been A Son - Nirvana
6. Suicide Picnic - Velvet Acid Christ
7. Cruise (Don't Stop) - Nightmares On Wax
8. Suffer Little Children - The Smiths
9. Horror Show - The Birthday Massacre
10. Deeply Disturbed - Infected Mushroom
11. The Killing Moon - Echo & The Bunnymen
12. Remember That - Rakim
13. Be Mine Tonight - Blackmore's Night
14. Rainbow-colored Crayon - Akizo Shikata (Ar tonelico III)
15. Loco - Coal Chamber
16. Chinese Arithmetic - Eric B. & Rakim
17. Fiction (Dreams in Digital) - Orgy
18. Sepsis - Otep
19. Lake Bodom - Children of Bodom
20. Holiday in Cambodia - Dead Kennedies

I'm reading an essay entitled "Tryptamine Hallucinogens and Consciousness" by Terence McKenna, and I particularly liked this one paragraph. I can't say my knowledge of xenoarchaeology is vast by any means, but I just felt like this made sense. I dunno.

It is only the conceit of the scientific and post-industrial societies that allows us to even propound some of the questions that we take to be so important. For instance, the question of contact with extraterrestrials is a kind of red herring premised upon a number of assumptions that a moment's reflection will show are completely false. To search expectantly for a radio signal from an extraterrestrial source is probably as culture bound a presumption as to search the galaxy for a good Italian restaurant. And yet, this has been chosen as the avenue by which it is assumed contact is likely to occur. Meanwhile, there are people all over the world - psychics, shamans, mystics, schizophrenics - whose heads are filled with information, but it has been ruled a priori irrelevant, incoherent, or mad. Only that which is validated through consensus via certain sanctioned instrumentalities will be accepted as a signal. The problem is that we are so inundated by these signals - these other dimensions - that there is a great deal of noise in the circuit.
