Play That Funky Music

After reading other posts (the Duck) concerning music, I decided to confess about some of my music oddities. For one, I have a bizzare range in taste. For instance, one of my favorite all time CDs ever is Billy Currington's "Doin' Somethin' Right"--which just came out this year. Prior to that CD, I loved John Legend's "Get Lifted". So both of those two spectrums are on my iPod. Not only do I have some of CMT's favorites, but I also have 50 cent and Nelly on my selection list.

The Duck talked about putting his iPod setting on random play. I did that once on mine and it induced a schizophrenic hallucination. I put the setting on shuffle--first it played Kenny Chesney's "There Goes My Life" and then Eminem's "Ass Like That" played next. Following Eminem's rap, Destiny's Child belted "Emotions" and then Michael Buble crooned" Home". My taste in music matches the bi-polar personality bestowed on me by my Gemini sign. I have such a diverse taste in music that a trip to F.Y.E. can last hours.

This doesn't only go for music but for my taste in food---I love eating healthy. I have to have vegetables with every meal. But yet I also love funyuns and skittles (I eat skittles almost every day). I'm trying to cut down on the Funyuns and so far I've been funyun free for almost a week. It's part of my losing weight and getting healthy for 2006. But if you were to see me eat dinner, you would think I was a health freak. I like the salad rather than fries, cook my steak well, and serve it with steamed broccoli or asparagus. Watch a DVD with me and I'm the epitome of junk food junkie--I actually dip my Funyuns in Lay's Cheddar cheese dip.

There are more extremes which I can't think of at the moment. But I know that I live up to my astrological sign--the Gemini twins. It might explain why many of my friends have yet to figure me out.


  • I am the same way, I can be doing well all day and then someone will bring out something really good and unhealthy as hell and I can't help myself.

  • Funyuns and cheese dip - that sounds hideous. One of my buddies from high school used to eat Cheetos with marshmallow spread. I think you guys could have a junk food battle.

    As to music, there is nothing wrong with eclecticism. Keep on rockin'.

  • OMG! I was reading your post and I listening to the radio and guess what Billy Currington's "Doin' Somethin' Right" came on. WEIRD.

    I like to listen to a varity of music to. I love country mainly but I also listen to R&B, Pop, and Oldies.

  • i have a really eclectic and random taste in music as well. i like music from every genre as long as the song's good. it doesn't matter who sings it or whether or not it's hip or not.

    i love funyun's. but they give you onion breath.

  • I don't know funyun's....! Am I missing a lot??

    By Blogger missy, at 1:54 PM  

  • Heck yeah, geminis unite! We're similar in quite a few ways from what I can tell. There must be something to that whole astrology thing.

    Oh, and missy, yeah you are missing something by not eating funyuns. Namely hideous breath. Those things taste great but are cause some killer halitosis.

  • Have you frequented Ticharu's music site?

    By Blogger Gyrobo, at 3:22 PM  

  • I've figured you out.

    You're consistently inconsistent.

    (joke, although I may be just a little correct)

  • You sound confused.

    I hope this doesn't extend to your wardrobe, like you wear heavy warm sweaters with gym shorts.

  • Music is too great of a thing to have to narrow it down to one category. Now on eating healthy, I need to learn how to do that..:)

    By Blogger vani, at 9:54 PM  

  • Haha! Nice. I love the fact that I learn something new about you every day! And I thought you were perfect!

    By Blogger Luke, at 10:32 PM  

  • Heck I figured you out. Aries-Gemini connection!!! There's something to that--don't go for the crap they put in the papers though. Mercury retrograde teaches a lot huh?!
    Congrats on being funyan free. I have a thing for french fries and mayo.
    Your music taste is awesome. Mine is a schizoid not to worry!

  • I love vegetables too. I don't eat a lot of junk food, but once in a while, you just have to.
    I have a wide range of music too. I listen to classical when I am in the car on my way to and from work (sometimes at night in the car with boyfriend), Rock and Roll, jazz and alternative. You won't hear me listening to country, bluegrass or hiphop (well maybe a few hiphop that are a catchy tune, but not for the most part).

  • I, too, am a Gemini.

    But I have no idea what a "Funyun" is.

    Please, help out an under-educated Canuck?

  • My junk food of choice is Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. I have one everyday.

    By Blogger Lindsey, at 7:01 AM  

  • I am like that too..........I love all types of music. I listen to a little bit of everything, and finding new stuff that I like all the time. I am like that with food to....I love healthy foods, but I am not big on eating healthy. I just like food!! Are any of those characteristics similar for cancers too?? ;)

  • i like all types of music too. i get tired of listening to the same type of music over and over. you've got to mix it up. variety is good, i think. i'm trying to eat healthier too. the other day i ate a salad, two oranges, and ooops some delicious icecream. the salad and oranges cancel the other one out :). what are funyuns?

  • I can relate because my taste in usic is all over the place.Don't tell anyone, but I actually like Clay Aiken's music.

  • do you crinkle the darn funyon bag while your watching movies? cause if you do, it is dangerous. you might get kilt by someone who doesn't like that noise

  • Being eclectic is the spice of life. I am a firm believer in having a diverse music collection. Friday night I went to see Seether and Shinedown and yesterday, I was all about the Hoff.

  • I am just the same as you perhaps a little more controlled. I eat healthy and then have a chocolate urge and I binge on a whole, perhaps two chocolates and I feel like a complete idiot !

  • WE all have our oddities. I like most any music except rap, country and heavy metal.

  • What are funyun's ?? Have you tried Twisties (cheesy, twisted, salty, crispy snacks) in a buttered bread-roll ?? That's yum !!
