Never Mind The Bollocks, Here's The Sporadic Post!

Genius, they say, cannot be rushed. But obviously, The artist formerly known as Ping! wasn't aware of that when she decided to life-movie-soundtrack-tag (that's what they should call it!) me.

My initial response to the tag was to use Lady GaGa's "Poker Face" for all the categories. Because, really, you can't go wrong with lyrics like, "Pa-pa-pa-poker face, pa-pa-poker face. Mum-Mum-Mum-Mah." Even if it is for a fight scene. But, eventually, better judgement prevailed and I decided against the idea (because nothing attracts bad karma like a frivolously handled life-movie-soundtrack-tag).

So, here are the titles to the songs to the soundtrack to the movie to my life:
