Recommendations

You know those “if you like this, you might like that” things? The ones websites generate based on purchasing history? Well, I think there’s a message here. I just need to figure out what it is…

Things Amazon thinks I need:

1. Buffy the Vampire Slayer Comic Books. Me? Comic books? I think not.

2. Dr. Freud’s Psychotherapy Ball. Ok, I admit that one is a good suggestion.

3. The Superfly Slingshot Flingshot Flying Screaming Monkey. Hours of office fun! Sold!

4. The Teen Girl’s Gotta-Have-It Guide to Embarrassing Moments: How to Survive Life’s Cringe-Worthy Situations. Somehow, this still applies to my life. And I’m almost 30. Christ.

Blockbuster suggested I rent:

1. Howard the Duck. Hey now, I like Howard the Duck. A lot.

2. Sexette. Mae West in her 80s. A musical necrophiliac adventure. Totally renting it.

3. I Know Who Killed Me. LiLo’s finest hour captured for the Viewing Pleasure of All Mankind. Plus, a stripper pole. Good to see Blockbuster thinks highly of me.

At least it hasn’t recommended Gigli yet.

iTunes wants me to check out:

1. I’m Too Sexy by Right Said Fred. I’m too sexy to own this song, too sexy for the song, too sexy!

2. Paradise by the Dashboard Light by Meatloaf.  My secret wish is to karaoke to this.

3. Mmmm MMmm Mmm by Crash Test Dummies. Sadly, this is on my iPod.

4. Barbie Girl by Aqua. This one too.

5. (You’re) Having My Baby by Paul Anka. Um, pass. Thanks for playing, iTunes.

6. Wilson Phillips: Greatest Hits. This gem includes songs like Hold On and Release Me and other assorted anthems that defined my tween years.

    I seem to vaguely remember you singing this at karaoke night at Verns. Lots of alcoholic refreshments were consumed but I am clear that you sang this. O believe I followed your performance with What I Am by Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians. We were both marvelous.

    OK, I don’t recall singing Paradise by the Dashboard Light. Possible, but I don’t recall. Then again, this night is a wee bit fuzzy.
