brothers, don't be cool, women like it sometimes when you act a fool

You guys are too good to me...I ask for some questions to answer and I get dozens - thank you!
This is my 400th post, which feels goood, and frankly, I'm just going to dive right in. (There are so many questions, that I'll answer half in this post, and half in a second post later - and if you have any additional questions, go for it! This is mad fun)

Keith asked: "If you could sleep with any singer past or present who would that be?"

Sam asked: "What's your opinion of Wolfmother(the band)?"
I don't know a whole lot of Wolfmother, but everything I've heard has been ridiculously badass and awesome. I'm a Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath fan, so I can dig on any band who keeps that spirit alive today. I wish I knew more!

TEXTSTYLES asked: "why do you blog? what started it? and where do you want to take it?"
I started blogging because I felt like I had so many opinions bubbling up in myself and no one to tell them to. Though now I have people to share them with, blogging is way too much fun to stop. I blog because I enjoy it. And as for the future, well, it would be nice to parlay this into a career, but I'm not going to expect that. I definitely will continue blogging.

copperoranges asked: "are you in school? what are you studying? how many days worth of songs do you have on your itunes?"
I am in school...kind of. Technically I'm in grade 12, but I do my schooling by correspondance, which means, basically, I do it from home over the Internet. It's easier, fun-er and much more independent.
My iTunes isn't very impressive. I have an iPod nano and it's full with all the songs it can handle, which is about 300. But since my prefered method of music-listening is on vinyl, I haven't given iTunes much love and appreciation. I also don't download illegally (simply because it's unsatisfying) so everything on my iPod is essentially what I own on CD - which isn't much.

Mimi asked: "If you I asked you to make a play list of songs that would go perfect for my fashion blog [old, new, rock, blues... Whatever it may be] would you do it?"
Yes! I'd love to.
For starters, as you say you are "infatuated with Hendrix", I would throw on some "Little Miss Lover", a really fun and rad song. Another cool song to put on there would be Ready for the World's "Oh Sheila", which (I'm ashamed to admit) for months I thought was actually an unreleased Prince song. I'm not going to deny the dope-ness that is Britney Spears' new song "Circus" for a second longer. "I'd Love to Change the World" by Ten Years After would be a nice addition. And, finally, David Bowie's "Suffragette City" - I know it's one of his bigger songs and therefore slightly obvious, but it's one of those songs that when you hear it on the radio you get excited because you forgot how amazing it is. Let your blog give people that moment. I hope that helps!

Katelin asked: "if you met marvin gaye, what one thing would you ask him? what song do you detest the most? and what female musician do you idolize the most?"

If I had to pick one song to detest the most, it would probably be Avril Lavigne's "Girlfriend". Its obnoxiousness rating is off the charts. It doesn't rhyme, which adds to the feeling of generally patheticness. You just want to smack her upside the head.
If I met Marvin Gaye, I don't think I'd ask him anything - I think I would weep, kiss his feet and thank him.
The female musician I admire the most is Grace Slick. In terms of, well, everything. I love her style, I love her music, I love her voice, I love her strength, I love her personality - she's just a good ol' free spirit, the best type of person.

Sunniva asked: "1) If you were to have a party and could invite 5 famous people, dead or alive, who would they be and why?2) Who do you love most, Alex or Alexa? ;p3) What is your dream job?4) Can I adopt you as my sister?"
That first question is brilliant, and haunting. It's a hard choice and I'll probably look back on this in a year (or tomorrow) and cringe as I'm missing big ones, but I'm going to go with George Clinton, Lester Bangs, Anita Pallenberg, Neal Cassady and Andre 3000, because you know they'd show up looking amazing and party their fucking asses off.
As for who I love more, I'd have to go amazing as Alexa is, she hasn't really done anything besides be generally cool. Alex has written some freaking fantastic music. Definitely Alex.
I think my dream job - believe it or not - is actually homemaker. I'm lazy as hell and I don't want a "real" job, I'd be so happy to just stay at home and cook, clean and the whatnot. Trophy wife is a close second. (Jokessss...kinda)
Yes, I'm available for adoption. Please submit your application to my receptionist.

Thank you for your awesome questions, I've enjoyed answering them so much and I can't wait to answer more in my next post. I hope you've enjoyed the first 400 posts of Ashcan Rantings, and are as excited about another 400 as I am.

Awesome post. Great answers. Thanks much for the note.

Still wish I could go to a Kotton Mouth Kings concert. They are around enough. They just make me happy. But they might not want to be in the heartland during blizzard times.

Mimi said...

Keith said...

Hey Molly. Wow! I enjoyed this entire post. It was neat to see the questions you were asked and the answers you gave. I really loved seeing my question up there first. Jagger is one cool dude so I don't blame ya for mentioning him. Congrats again on your 400th post. Cheers!

Cate said...

This seems fun. I should do that too for my 100th post or something.
I only know 'Woman' by Wolfmother, but that's a cool song.
I very much appreciate that your preferred method of listening to music is vinyl. Good child ^^ And I don't download either, and all I have in my Windows Media Player (no iTunes, I'm a geek) is also only what I have on CD.
Hey, I'm in grade 12 too!
How good to know that I'm not the only one detesting Avril Lavigne.
Hear, hear!
