So here's how it works:
1. Open your music 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....

I watched Friday Night Lights yesterday. And I just. . . I am still weepy.

I think what's KILLING me about this last season is that it's just so good, and this is ALL, and somehow I invested in the next cast of characters JUST AS DEEPLY as the first group, and watching is breaking my damn heart. Tim getting out just. . . oh. He's all BROKEN and he saw Smash on TV and he gave up everything, but the never really thought he'd have it to begin with, and now you can see him wondering what might have been and realizing what will never be. And part of the brilliance of showing Tim is that while looking at Tim, it's just so easy to see how things MIGHT go for this next generation of stars who could just flame out and vanish as easily as he did.

And MINDY. How did Mindy get awesome? And I still think how much Becky looks like Jess to me is odd, but I love her anyway and Jess. God. Jess. *HUGS HER FOREVER.*

I love this show. I'm already in mourning.

I need a Jess icon. I think I might ask for Jess fic this yuletide, if it's still eligible.

And now I'm watching Top Gear, and it's the episode where they have to buy and test the perfect car for teenagers, which is one of the first episodes I ever saw, and still cracks me up. Waterbed in the back seat. Hah.

E.T.A. I also forgot that I watched the pilot for Unnecessary Roughness, with my sister, because Mehcad Brooks is pretty, and I usually like football shows. It was largely pretty bland and trite, but did want to gripe about the first patient we see.

We're introduced to the main character, Dr. Dani Santino, who has a therapy practice out of her house and is a licensed hypnotherapist and a lot of other things I didn't pay attention to. Stuff happens, but mostly I just want to gripe about the first patient.

The first woman we see Dani "treating" is a sobbing mess sitting on a sofa, confessing tearfully that she's addicted to bread, and can't stop eating. And her husband confronted her with "the crusts" because she doesn't eat those, and she needs help. Dani then tells her that it's not about losing weight, it's about regaining control, and that some people get addicted to drugs or booze or sex or blah blah, and her patient is addicted to carbs. She then at some point does a hypnotic suggestion session trying to wean her patient off of bread.

It ANNOYED me. Firstly, her patient is thin, and in no way needs to lose weight, even if you go by the standard society measure. (Which I don't, but even so, THIN.) Instead of addressing the fact that this woman does not need to lose weight, and if she's this frantic about eating BREAD then there's probably some self esteem issues at work too, AND that if her husband is "confronting her" about eating bread then he's a controlling DICK, she just says she's addicted to carbs and that she'll help fix it with hypnosis so she can feel in control again.

IN WHAT WAY IS THIS SUPPOSED TO CONVINCE US SHE'S A GOOD THERAPIST?

Ugh. I don't know that the power of Mehcad's abs can compel me to watch another episode of this.

Also - like barely any football, for how much the football was shown during he ads.
