To-Do List (last updated February 16th, 2017)  

Tales From the Shelves -- my book-sporking blog  Now sporking Revealing Eden!

Brother comes home tomorrow! :boogie:

After two years serving a mission for the LDS church in Brazil, my brother comes home tomorrow. :D We've missed him terribly, and it'll be great to see him in person again. And tease him a little about his rusty English. :giggle: He's been speaking Portuguese for so long that even in his letters home he's been forgetting some of the English words for things. I'm sure he'll get back in the groove of it before too long...

And no, he did not get to attend the Olympics last year. Aside from the fact that I don't believe missionaries are allowed to attend sporting events (there are strict rules of conduct while serving a mission), he was over a thousand miles north of the Olympic venues. Brazil is a BIG country, which is something I think a lot of people forget... and there are a LOT more cities than just Rio.

Don't know if I'll be on in the next few days, or if I am it'll just be to check messages and such. We'll be trying to get Brother settled in, as well as playing host to various family members as they pop in and out to touch base with Brother and welcome him home. Just a heads-up. Also Nexus Point and Tales From the Shelves probably won't be updated for a week or so.

In the meantime, have a meme. That'll keep folks busy while I'm gone. :giggle:

RULES:
1. Put your iTunes/MP3 player on random, and take note of the first 20 songs that play. It doesn't matter how silly they are, just put them in.
2. Post the first three lines/first stanza of the songs that you hear.
3. Let everyone guess which songs the lyrics come from.
4. If someone guesses correctly, strike out those lyrics and make a note of the song's title and singer/s, and the one who guessed them correctly.
5. Try not to cheat and use Google to guess them all.

Spotlight   NOTE: Spotlight  Please only guess three or four songs at a time for now.  If any go unguessed after a few days, I'll repost them and let folks have another shot at guessing.

Also, as usual, I'm cheating by skipping certain songs -- instrumentals, foreign-language songs, songs with the name in the first few lines, and really obscure stuff.

1. In a cold, faraway world
A battle is raging between evil and good
From the stars, they came here to Earth
Caught in their struggle for the whole universe
"'Til All Are One" (aka "Ground Zero") by Stan Bush
Guessed by :iconheraldofunicron:

2. Swaying room as the music starts
Strangers making the most of the dark
Two by two their bodies become one
I see you through the smoky air
Can't you feel the weight of my stare?
You're so close but still a world away

3. This is our fork in the road
Love's last episode
There's nowhere to go, oh no
You made your choice and now it's up to me
To bow out gracefully
Though you hold the key

4. You can be amazing
You can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug
You can be the outcast
Or be the backlash of somebody's lack of love

Or you can start speaking up

5. Left a good job in the city
Workin' for the man ev'ry night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleepin'

Worryin' 'bout the way things might have been
"Proud Mary" by Creedence Clearwater Revival OR Tina Turner
Guessed by :iconchimeradragonfang:

6. Your butt is wide, well mine is too
Just watch your mouth or I'll sit on you
The word is out, better treat me right

'Cause I'm the king of cellulite
"Fat" by "Weird Al" Yankovic (a parody of "Bad" by Michael Jackson)
Guessed by :iconweeglyfeesh:

7. Lying beside you here in the dark
Feeling your heart beat with mine
Softly you whisper, you're so sincere
How could our love be so blind?
"Open Arms" by Journey
Guessed by :iconweeglyfeesh:

8.  We can dance if we want to
We can leave your friends behind
'Cause your friends don't dance
And if they don't dance
Well, they're no friends of mine
"The Safety Dance" by Men Without Hats
Guessed by :iconforever-art-fan:

9. On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance, saw a shimmering light
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
Had to stop for the night
"Hotel California" by The Eagles
Guessed by :iconanonemousejr:

10. There's a calm surrender to the rush of day
When the heat of the rolling world can be turned away
An enchanted moment, and it sees me through
It's enough for this restless warrior just to be with you
"Can You Feel the Love Tonight?" by Elton John
Guessed by :iconheraldofunicron:

11. I can't light no more of your darkness
All my pictures seem to fade to black and white
I'm growing tired and time stands still before me

Frozen here on the ladder of my life
"Don't Let the Sun Go Down On Me" by Elton John
Guessed by :iconweeglyfeesh:

12. You would not believe your eyes
If ten million fireflies
Lit up the world as I fell asleep
'Cause they fill the open air
And leave teardrops everywhere
You think me rude, but I would just stand and stare
"Fireflies" by Owl City
Guessed by :iconkartoon12:

13. A Salvation Army band played
And the children drank lemonade
And the morning lasted all day, all day
And through an open window came
Like Sinatra in a younger day

Pushing the town away, away

14. If you can't write in the proper way
If you don't know how to conjugate
Maybe you flunked that class
And maybe now you find

That people mock you online
"Word Crimes" by "Weird Al" Yankovic (a parody of "Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke)
Guessed by :iconthemisterfree:

15. 'Cause the world might do me in
It's all right 'cause I'm with friends
'Cause I'm giving up again
It doesn't matter
"Ghost" by Mystery Skulls
Guessed by :iconchimeradragonfang:

16.  Traveling in a fried-out combie
On a hippie trail, head full of zombie
I met a strange lady, she made me nervous

She took me in and gave me breakfast
"Down Under" by Men At Work
Guessed by :iconanonemousejr:

17. Friday night I crashed your party
Saturday I said I'm sorry
Sunday came and trashed me out again
I was only having fun
Wasn't hurting any one
And we all enjoyed the weekend for a change
"You May Be Right" by Billy Joel
Guessed by :iconchimeradragonfang:

18. They say we are what we are
But we don't have to be
I'm bad behavior
But I do it in the best way
I'll be the watcher of the eternal flame
I'll be the guard dog of all your fever dreams
"Immortals" by Fall Out Boy
Guessed by :iconkartoon12:

19. Rising up, back on the street
Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance, now I'm back on my feet

Just a man and his will to survive
"Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor
Guessed by :iconanonemousejr:

20.  Night time sharpens, heightens each sensation
Darkness wakes and stirs imagination
Silently the senses abandon their defenses
Helpless to resist the notes I write
"Music of the Night" from The Phantom of the Opera
Guessed by :iconphantom-jedi1:
