aren't you glad we didn't use the japanese alphabet?
by Turtle Jones

I talked to Michele today. We needed an idea. We have tons of ideas, but we wanted something light and easy. She said one and I agreed.

26 letters in the alphabet.


Name 26 song titles that have had an impact on you. Emotionially, physically, sexually or mentally. Or, cause they just rocked.

OK. That's easy.

But, they have to all be different bands.

Oh hell. And I think Chef Ramsay is on tonight. The truth is I got halfway done when she suggested that so some of mine might sound a little weird. Well, two of mine. You will see when you get there.

So we spent an hour doing this and really, this was a hard hour. The 26 thing is cool, but by different bands is hard. See what you can come up with. And feel free to ask for help cause I had to ask for "U" and I pulled Fred Schnider out of my ass.

Wanna play?

Here we go!

It's really not that hard, but it takes alot of time if you want to go on the no repeat train like we did. Have fun and see if you can do it. But, you don't have to.

Cause if we can do it, you can too.

But "Z" is a bitch.

- Tim has his list up

i kew this one was gonna be hard.

just work off each other


Good lord. This'll have to happen in the morning. Too late to think this hard.

No Dream Theater outta 52 songs? You're hurtin' my heart ... deep inside.


i told you this was gonna hurt.

i was done before she put the rules on "no band twice". i had to change everything

it hurt


I thought, "Hey! I should do this- it would be perfect for my LJ!" Then I actually started to think about A...then B...and realized that I would be nuts about the time I got to G or H.

So maybe later...


And I thought you guys would be up for a challenge...Oh well.
