Ha! Ademas Imortal! I love that song. My friend and I rented MK:DA when I was at his house, and we listened to that song more than played the actual game! That song has inspired me to act like an ass, does that count?

PS:Eggy, where'd ya get that song?

The only real creative talent I got other than making websites, and goofy pictures, is writing and singing. Most of my inspiration comes from the David Bowie catalogue, or anything by Skinny Puppy.

I like listening to the entire S.C.I.E.N.C.E. cd by Incubus before I run. Its an upbeat, cool cd that always gets me in a good mood.

Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven.
Made me want to learn how to play the piano, so I started learning three weeks ago.

"My sweet lord" by George Harrison. A little preachy, but a very good song that will put you in a better mood, as it has for me.

actually songs can and do influence you,
for myself I can honestly say that my entire adult life
work ethic and attitude to work in a nine to 5 world
was shattered by a song from The Wizard of Oz.
it was and is the "Merry Old Land of Oz" song,
sung inside the Emerald City.


"we get up at 12 and start to work by 1
take an hour for lunch and then at 2 we're done
jolly good fun....

I didn't forget Alice, I just never got inspired by listening to Alice. I listen to Alice for entertainment only. I got tickets to see him October 15th this year. I see him every year. ;)

One of my favorites as well. :D It makes use of the mahamantra, which is india voodoo type stuff.

Hare Krishna, hare Krishna,
Krishna Krishna, hare hare!
Hare Rama, hare Rama,
Rama Rama, hare hare!

(Repeat over and over again until they come and toss you out of the damn airport.)

:) Hi, Grooves, Your Eggness. Others.

They throw you out of the airport for that now? I usually just stand in front of them and bang my head. If there is a group of spectators, I attempt to start a moshpit, until they throw ME out of the damn airport. I also like to hold a lighter in the air while watching street musicians.:dozey:
