In the morning when driving to work, or whatever it is I do in the morning, I like:

A morning show with two guys and a chick talking about inane shit. (99.1, 101.1)

Do you tend to take on the vocal inflections and traits or speech patterns of the people you are hanging out with?

Yes, in fact I have no vocal traits/speech patterns of my own. If this annoys you don't spend more than 30 minutes with me.

Sometimes I notice it, but only after I've been hanging out with a person exclusively for days in a row.
20(57.1%)
Only in really close relationships like family or significant others.

Do I do what? What are you talking about?

argh i totally fucked up the last question. I meant "Only in really close relationships like family or significant others." Tim and I are like fucking clones sometimes in that respect. Steph, too.

I hate saxophones, but I have to say, I like the original version of "Baker Street" better than the recent cover that replaced the sax with an electric guitar.

As for Scorsese, the reason "Jersey" came to mind was because I remember distinctly my very strong reaction to "The Last Temptation of Christ," which could be summed up quite succinctly as, "Jeesuss, Jeesuss, we all sound like weah from Joisey!"

I would like to not ethat I did not read the Scorcese answers before providing my own.

Hee hee.

My Scorsese answer has to do with a dream I had, years ago, where I met Martin Scorsese at a kite-flying festival and he fell madly in love with me. It was a bizarre dream. And it was the first thing that came to my mind.

Your answer was the /second/ thing that came to my mind. =)

kirk mark and lopez are in category one or two, i feel sure.

also, in regards to scorcese, hee hee!

this was added to my poll because last night on the garage rock show, i forget what it is called, the guy on 94.7 was doing a salute to music from scorcese movies, and i realized i haven't seen any.

While Lopez does not live with his mind in an illiterate gutter like Kirk & Mark, I dont think that qualifies him as a chick.

OK, that was kind of an arbitrary qualification. It's still an inane morning show with obnoxious guys and therefore I don't want to listen to it.

See goodfellas - it may just get you into the crime drama genre. It is very possible that after watching it, you will go and see every other gangster movie in hopes that it could be as cool as goodfellas.

If I ever meet him, I'm gonna grab his fucking neck and just shake him
and say, "Thank you. Thank you for making such excellent fucking movies."

There's rock, and then there's rock and roll . . .
As much as I love brass, I wouldn't necessarily associate it with the latter.

Re: There's rock, and then there's rock and roll . . .
You are (forgive the male-centric term) balls-out! You are the only person bold enough to answer No! I think that's awesome. I would have answered no except for the aforementioned loving of steely dan, chicago, and certain later-era Damned songs that feature the sax prominently.

many kinds of rock; only one rock 'n' roll
Dire Straits, "Sultans of Swing"

"... They don't give a damn about any trumpet-playing band/ It ain't what they call rock 'n' roll/ And the Sultans played Creole."

So, does that sentiment belong only to the rowdies in the bar, or is that also what the Sultans think?

Re: many kinds of rock; only one rock 'n' roll
i got the impression that the sultans did not think that, however they tolerated it because it was quaint. but i think i mostly made that impression up.
