Not BaNaL!

Did I mention Barenaked Ladies has a new album called Barenaked Ladies Are Men? They do! Hay and I bought it over the weekend. I've listened to it exactly one time, but not because it isn't any good. I just have been cramming my Veronica Mars episodes.

Also, in the very near future HAY AND I ARE GOING TO SEE THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS! I have seen the Johns in concert before but it's been 15 years. I have their autographs which my hot roommate got me back in college when they stayed at the hotel he worked at. The autographs sit quietly in the safe but I really should frame them and put them on the wall.


And, just so you're not wondering forever and a day, if you do not see your name on this list then your quiz did not successfully send to me: Avi, Bearette, ACW, Molly, DLil, Bdogg, Kristen (sarkasmo), SourPuss, Stef, MIL/Lisslo, Mel, Tug, KnittingSchmoo, and Liz.

Spéncèr, you know why you're not on this list.

Anyone else, even if I don't know you, you are so entirely welcome to take the quiz. I want you to. Please. I love grading things. Like a lot. So go do it! :)

When I post the answers I will also post which ones you all got correct. Let me just say that I am amused by the patterns of which items people think are false.

I noticed some of them were packed with detail so I assumed they were true. I wonder if I was right :)

I've never seen TMBG in concert, but every time you mention them, it makes me want to go pull out my old CDs of theirs and listen to them again.

Oh, I heart the Johns so much! The last time I saw them live was in a Borders book store, promoting their kids' CD & DVD. Not exactly the same as a club show, but it was still entertaining of course. Have fun!

Bearette - I will reveal my trues and falses on Saturday. :)

Avi - You should pull out your TMBG. The old stuff is awesome. I like some of the new stuff but there's too much kids music mixed in now so I'm hoping they do a ton of old stuff at the concert. I'm sure Hay and I will be the oldest people in the crowd, aside from Hay's co-workers who are awesomely random. And if you haven't already seen their documentary (GIGANTIC: A Tale of Two Johns) I will gladly send you a copy. It's how I met Sarah Vowell.

Stef - I totally intend to. Even if they do their kids stuff I LOVE to watch them perform. :)

Tug said...

Yeah, I totally guessed on them all. Mostly 'cause I don't ask questions to get to know you better when we're naked at Avi's place.

Poppy Cede said...

Naked time is not question time. :)

Besides, you did just as well as some other people who have read my blog for a very long time. And have I let the cat out of the bag yet that no one is doing very well? :) No one is doing very well. :)

Avitable said...

I will do that. I have to figure out how many of their albums I have.

Tug said...

ooh, sucka. And only one entry, huh? I need to get one of my other personalities to do it...

Poppy Cede said...

Yes, only one entry per person, sorry. :)
