The "F-Word" started it because of the "Daily Mail" and/or what it believes feminists find important, [personal profile] miss_s_b then took up the baton and [personal profile] davegodfrey soon followed suit. Who am I to disagree and drop the ball? Particularly as it seems to totally spurious and ridiculous. Mind you, there is a serious subtext somewhere under all the bovine dung. Find it, keep it, spread it. (Subtext and funnier answers can be found at the linked locations).

Can you vajazzle and be a feminist?

Can you what? Excuse me, is this what I think it is? Is Snoop Dogg involved? I never really liked his music, you know, much less what he has done to spelling.
(looks up "vajazzle")
Dear Gods, so it's less Snoop Dogg and more Bling Puzzy. Why would you want to put rhinestones there? What's the point of Swarowski anyway? But yeah, no feminist points deducted for this.
(lose 1d6 SAN, though)

Is it sexist to call a woman "love" or "dear"?
No, but please stop calling anyway. Mom is trying to sleep.

Does Katie Price let women down?
My friend Emma, who knows more about these thing than I ever will, says "No". Apparently, their version of "A whole new world" is quite decent. But I know what you mean: successful woman working in several areas and still finding time to raise and disperse a family. My, such a disappointment.

Should women take their husband's name when they get married?
No. The husband still needs it. Unless of course the woman is very domineering. In that case, he will only be called "Worm" from now on anyway and will not have much need for a name in the near future.

Is Rihanna a feminist icon?
I have no idea. The last popstar-and-supposed-feminist-icon that deeply disappointed me was Kelly Rowland. After that I really stopped caring.
But I mean, yeah, good on Rhianna for leaving her boyfriend after he battered her. Perhaps Whitney Houston would still be alive today if she had taken similar actions.
But please, no more music!

Who should pay the bill on a date?
Whoever can afford it and/or wants to delight the other person. Paying for whatever you ordere should be the default option.

Is stripping an acceptable career choice?
As long as the sight of you disrobing doesn't also strip paint from the walls, yes.

Don't take too long to think about it. Fifteen albums you've heard that will always stick with you. List the first fifteen you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes. Tag fifteen friends, including me, because I'm interested in seeing what albums my "music-fan-friends" choose.

(Well, don't worry about the tagging thing)

1. VNV Nation - Futureperfect
2. Nirvana - Unplugged in New York
3. Tool - LaTeRaLus
4. The Beatles - 1962-1966 (aka "The red album")
5. Nine Inch Nails - The downward spiral
6. Nine Inch Nails - The Fragile
7. Radiohead - OK Computer
8. Catatonia - International Velvet
9. Test Dept. & Brith Gof - Gododdin
10. Dälek - Absence
11. Vangelis - Blade Runner OST
12. Soundgarden - Superunknown
13. Einstürzende Neubauten - Silence is sexy
14. Rage against the Machine - Rage against the Machine
15. Sigúr Ros - Agaetis Byrjun

It is common knowledge that practically every double-album might be much improved if the musicians responsible had taken the time and afforded themselves the modesty to admit that the whole thing would be a lot better as a normal album. (Unreasonable Claim No. 325)

So here is your chance: Come up with a playlist for any double/triple/etc. album that you feel might be a whole lot better if there wasn't quite as much of it. Obvious contestants are "Use your illusion", "Load/Re-Load" and "Musick to play in the dark", but I am totally open for suggestions. :-)

I am looking forward to joining you finally )

My Peculiar Aristocratic Title is:
Very Sir Lord Chris the Festive of Buzzing St Helens
Get your Peculiar Aristocratic Title

Done this one before, let's see if the film is any better this time round.

1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle.
3. Press play.
4. For every question, type the song that's playing.
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button.
6. Don't lie and try to pretend you're cool.

Opening Credits:
Deichkind - Pferd im Stall Not bad. Weird german hip hop. (How weird? Well, weird enough for me to listen to it.) I can imagine credits rolling over that. This film might have a drug theme.

Waking Up:
Sickness of Snakes - The Pope held upside down
That is not a happy waking up. Or very dirty surroundings.

An Ordinary Day:
Imperative Reaction - Salvation
And after the horrible waking up, we now have a rather hectic day. I think this really might turn into a more extreme version of "Human Traffic".

Falling in Love:
Einstürzende Neubauten - Für wen sind die Blumen?
Aw, that's quite cute. Title means "Who are the flowers for?" Might be more drugs or just a cappucino at a café.

The Rumble:
M. Jackson vs. Ray Parker jr. - Bad Ghostbusters
Undoubtedly a sequence that will still be quoted in 20 years time. ;-)

The Break-up:
Linea 77 - Headtide
Hearts are not the only thing broken that day.

Getting Back Together:
3 cold men - Crossed waters
Very 80s. I see a white rose and a black hat falling to the floor in slow-motion.

Life's Okay:
Front 242 - Flag
And life is back to normal. In other words, we are wired again.

The Mental Breakdown:
Atrox - Mad for a reason

Imperative Reaction - Alone

The Flashback:
Covenant - Edge of Dawn
Not an acid-flashback, that's for sure.

The Frat Party:
VNV Nation - Darkangel
Frat-boys love Ronan. Ronan carries a sword and likes burgers. "I only came here seeking beer."

Everybody Dance Now:
Snow Patrol - Make this go on forever
Okay, so this is the last slow dance of the evening, with our heroes slowly moving around the floor. Awwwwwww!

Coil - The restitution of decayed intelligence II
Regret goes hand in hand with hearing voices.

The Long Night Alone:
Kidneythieves - Feathers
Not coping well with being alone.

A Death:
New Fast Automatic Daffodils - PSV
Whoever died, died happy.

End Credits:
Shizuka - Le Reseau
There is definitely going to be a sequel.
