I've Pursued Nothing - The Tossers

All the bottles of wine have ravaged my mind
Another day's gone by and I'm worried

And the night, and the night, it is bitter and short
For I know that a new day is coming
Another day, another day, all alone and blue
But for you I've pursued nothing

If you'd heard the song, you'd know it doesn't sound as moody and melancholic as the text hints. I've had a good day, and I do feel I've actually pursued something, namely trigonometry. Hey, there are worse ways to spend your days. In fact, basking in the sun on the balcony with a good friend is always nice, even when a Mathematics book is present.

I had an interesting morning too -- interesting in the sense that it all just felt so damned perfect. I woke up at nine, went up at ten, started the computer and went to get dressed. Halfway to the drawers I saw the absurdity in it though, seeing as that I was all alone in the house and the temperature actually was acceptable, there was little reason to get properly dressed. So, in t-shirt and boxer shorts, I fetched a few toasts with orange marmalade and a large glass of Proviva in the kitchen, and stood eating on the balcony -- still in my shoddy garments. This time it was me who was "lodis", so I'll be careful before I call Alex that again. It was nice though, standing in the morning sun and drinking the last of the morning juice and then reading blog-referrals about NHL-games for an hour. It was an entirely lazy and unproductive afternoon, but it was great and it was a nice whiff of a few of the things that are good in life.

There's not much more to say about the day, save that we now have started planning the feast that we will hold after my graduation. If all invited say yes, 31 persons will attend. That is a lot of people. Admittedly, I do not mind occasiosn with a lot of guests though. Plus, it will be rather interesting to see my friends interact with my relatives.

Now, seeing as that I do not have anything sane to say and do not know when I'll pop in again -- it's all down to mood and inspiration, really -- I'll reprise an old favourite. Remember the shuffle-game? Well, I did, and I figured that I wanted to do it again.

So here's me signing off for tonight.


1. Put your music player on shuffle.
2. Press forward for each question.
3. Use the song title as the answer to the question even if it doesn’t make sense. NO CHEATING!
(So this is a randomly spawned text on the internet giving me orders. That really requires some great cojones, considering I can erase him whenever I want.)

1. How are you feeling today?
Loch Lomond - Bryn Terfel
I have been thinking and talking about Scotland today actually. I've also been occasionally nostalgic, so it's not quite off the mark.
2. Will you get far in life?
Summerbreeze - Johnossi
Doesn't quite answer the question, but apparently I will spend many nights alone. Linus Glas.
3. How do your friends see you?
Oliver's Army - Elvis Costello
Given my rant when the Swedish army tried to draft me, I doubt any of my friends see me as a soldier in that regard -- even less, a British one.
4. Will you get married?
It's My Own Cheating Heart That Makes Me Cry - Glasvegas
Fuck you Spotify.
5. What is your life’s theme song?
The Wrestler - Bruce Springsteen
It's... I mean -- sod it. Yes. Now I got happy all of a sudden, somehow.
6. What is the story of your life?
Human Touch - Bruce Springsteen
That's two Springsteen-songs in a row, and I don't think this one is all too inaccurate either. Forsaking praise and pity for someone to talk to, and a little of that human touch? Yes, mister. Yes, without hesitation.
7. What was junior high school like?
Die Mauer - Ebba Grön
I'd expected this to be a good chuckle like last time, but now the bloody thing has started giving fairly accurate answers. Junior high was like a wall in many regards.
8. How can you get ahead in life?
The Eton Rifles - The Jam
Beating up brats from Eton? I'm on.
9. What is tomorrow going to be like?
I Wanna Be Adored - The Stone Roses
Shit, not again. I thought I'd had enough of heartthrob and longing for a few months.
10. What is the best thing about your friends?
Geraldine - Glasvegas
"My name's Geraldine, I'm your social worker." You've stood me this far and you listen when I want you to. By now I'm disregarding the creepy accuracy of the shuffle, because the answers please me. This one especially.
11. What is in store for the next weekend?
Cross Your Fingers - Laura Marling
Everton-Chelsea in the FA Cup final and exams right after the weekend. Spot on, again.
12. What song best describes you?
3:ans Spårvagn Genom Ljuva Livet - Eldkvarn
In my good moments, I do feel like life could be described like this.
13. How is your life going?
Uppgradera dig till Spotify Premium - Spotify
Allright, another try.
Kom - Lars Winnerbäck
I don't think the world's judging me, at least not anymore. Rotting together with someone in lack of ambition is neither unpleasant nor unaccurate though.
14. What song will play at your funeral?
Lost In The Flood - Bruce Springsteen
I will, actually.
15. How does the world see you?
Ompa til du dør - Kaizers Orchestra
Ompa 'til I bleed, ompa 'til I die. Better run from the world, it seems.
16. Will you have a happy life?
Death - White Lies
"'Relax', yes I'm trying, but fear's got a hold of me". Well, shit.
17. What do your friends really think of you?
Double Yellow Lines - The View
If I make you realise you're high as kites, I'm content -- someone bloody well has to.
18. What song describes the person you’re attracted to?
Alison - Elvis Costello
I don't know an Alison. You won't get more than that out of me.
19. What message would you like to tell the next generation?
Kärlek Är För Dom - Thåström
Not even I am that bitter.
20. Do you have a deep dark secret?
The Promised Land - Bruce Springsteen
No matter what, I'm not a boy but a man and I believe in a promised land. Actually.
21. Do people secretly lust after me?
Magic - Bruce Springsteen
Am I magic, or should people trust nothing what they hear and less of what they see? Come on girls, I am nice!
22. How can I make myself happy?
Resistansen - Kaizers Orchestra
Finding likeminded people and playing Russian roulette in a basement seems like a neat enough idea.
23. Will I ever have children?
All That Heaven Will Allow - Bruce Springsteen
Aw, shucks.
24. What’s some good advice for me?
Moondance - Van Morrison
So it's a marvellous night for a moondance. Should I interpret that as that it's a good time to go all-in?
25. How will I be remembered?
Mr. Brightside - The Killers
I do hope I'll be remembered for more things than falling in love with a stripper.
26. What is my signature dance song?
Bodhran - The Young Dubliners
It's Irish. You know me well enough to figure out the rest.


So, it turned out a bit more creepily correct than I expected it to. Still though, this is Saturday night entertainment until life restarts again.

May I add that the readers are strongly encouraged to make their own trials of this in the comments when they find the time in between aliterations, aldehydes and algebra?

See you around.

Aah, those things are funny...! Especially when some answers work... (and some of those were pretty accurate!) haven't done it with my spotify playlist so I'm gonna try that...!
