let's groove tonight, share the spice of life

So, my next post is something of a's my 400th post. God, that's a lot of posts. That's like if you took all the times in the past 24 hours that I've felt love for Parliament-Funkadelic, and divide that number in two...that many posts. Wow!

Now, I'm not going to lie...I like to celebrate stuff. Big surprise, right? And, granted, it's no 500 (and I'll try to prepare something real exciting for that!), but any number of posts divisible by 100 is exciting. I've always wanted to do one of those question and answer thing, but I've always thought that if I asked, and got nobody who wanted to ask me questions, well, wouldn't that be pretty embarassing? So, no pressure, but don't let me down! Do you have anything you would like to ask me, blog-related, personal or anything? "How did you discover the Funk?" (It discovered me), "Twelve litres of antifreeze solution contains 30% alcohol and 70% percent water. How many litres of pure alcohol must be added to raise the concentration of alcohol to 40%?" (Two) "Why are you so awesome?" (As the sun rises in the east and sheep sometimes gain around two pounds for six seconds immediately following their death, somethings just are)
So, has every visit to my blog been accompanied by a nagging question in the back of your head? Ask it! Let's be real, if it's pretty personal ("What's your address, so I can drive back in forth in front of your house and blare Paula Abdul's 'Straight Up' in your window at night?"), odds are I'll either just ignore you, politely decline to answer or notify my local authorities (reaction depends on level of intruiveness).

Any other suggestions on how to celebrate the big 4-0-0? Please share!
For if anything, this is a blog for the people.

Nahhhh, I'm "yanking your chain" (gotta love the imagery behind that one), this is my castle and I rule with an iron fist.
Don't believe me?
Just look at one of my early posts - you can feel the bitter aggression dripping onto your keyboards...

Congrats on your 400th post! Hmm, let me think of a question... Okay here goes. 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?


P. S. I'd thought I'd ask, we love mostly all the same music, and I'd love to see what you would come up with!

P. S. S I am infatuated with Hendrix, he just intrigues me so! I also have Debbie Harry 'Call Me', Norman Greenbaum 'Spirit in the Sky', TLC 'Waterfalls', Michael Jackson 'Billie Jean', Madonna 'Like a Prayer', Beyonce 'Single Ladies', No Doubt 'It's My Life', Elvis Costello 'Pump it Up', Santana 'Smooth', No Doubt 'Just a Girl', and The Fugees 'Killing me Softly'. Whew!

Happy 400th! Well actually, it's 399th until the next one hey? I only regret not finding you sooner so I could have read the vintage posts as they came out.

Hmmmm so many questions to ask....

would you rather be the muse or the musician? Discuss...

Cate said...

400 posts! My! For how long have you been doing this blog?
By the way, first thank you for your comment. I always love to watch the videos you post about.
OK, so my questions are weird.
1) Have you read 'Brave New World' by Aldous Huxley and if yes, what did you think of it?
2) What do you think about NIRVANA?
3) (not so weird) What is your favourite film?

About your garbage-post: Some guys from my year love throwing garbage at each other too, and they also love paper airplanes ;-) and when I go crazy, they tell me not to be childish.
And I agree, the world has been going down.

Sunniva said...

Wow, the big 4-0-0! That's a big deal Molly, congratulations:) I wish you a great 400 more, and after that another 400 and so on and so on because you can never stop blogging. I don't think I can survive without Ashcan Rantings!

My questions (I have a few since I probably am one of your biggest fans):

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? ;p
3) What is your dream job?
4) Can I adopt you as my sister?
5) What's your address, so I can drive back in forth in front of your house and blare Paula Abdul's 'Straight Up' in your window at night? ...haha only joking :p

Can't wait to see all of your answers xxx

What's your opinion of Wolfmother(the band)?

deep_in_vogue said...

congratulations on the milestone!!


400, that's old!!!!
bravo, brava.

k here's a question:
why do you blog? what started it? and where do you want to take it?


copperoranges said...

i have not been reading your blog for long, so i'm afraid of asking something really obvious!

are you in school? what are you studying?

how many days worth of songs do you have on your itunes?

Sister Libby said...

Dear Molly.
I have always (ok, no...just now) wondered what you're top 5 would be...I'm kind of thinking like, High Fidelity your Top 5 Loooove Songs, just a starter. I really don't know what to ask you...I think the 19 other people ahead of me sort of covered it. 400 is a good number. And I like the "go big or go home" idea behind your celebrations.
