advice of the day, from Ali: never, ever, give up your immunity necklace. yes, i would be talking to you…Erik aka the dumbest survivor ever. also? dude with the dumbest hair.

advice of the day, from Isabella: we don’t touch our bum-bum, and we don’t eat poo. even if there’s corn.

words of wisdom today, folks. words. of. wisdom.

When I was in St. Lucia, getting all drunk and tan, and making all of y’all jealous, i was asked a question…

If you could only listen to one band or musician for the rest of your life, who would it be?

wow. this question just about killed me. ONE? seriously? well, we know it wouldn’t be Scarlett Johansson. bwah. i like too many bands and listen to different things when i’m in different moods. shit.

i cheated and came up with two. The Beatles. Radiohead. my reason is threefold:

a) they both have huge catalogues.

b) they both have tons of varied music.

c) they both are fucking awesome.


  1. No contest – Genesis,hands down.

    Why? Because they are AWESOME and if they Oz on their tour but don’t do Perth, I will FLY anywhere in the country to see them (for the 4th time in my life!).

    Beatles come a close second.

    Mmmm, I can hear the strains of Suppers Ready…

  2. I’d have to agree with Heidi on Genesis.

    A close second would be ColdPlay.

    both these bands are incredible and have lyrics that stand the test of time.

    Beatles are pretty good too, but I’m listening to them alot at work these day and feeling a little bored with them, sadly. sorry!

  3. Line of the night: James. “I just lost my crown as dumbest survivor ever!”

    As for band… probably U2, for similar reasons that you chose The Beatles and Radiohead. (Although Radiohead would be a close second.)

  4. The Beatles popped into my head first – even before I saw your choices. Billy Joel might also make my list too.

  7. Very good advice all around.

    I’ve cheated on that question too because it is too hard. My answer is all music featuring Dave Grohl because then I get the Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Queens of the Stone Age… Plus Dave has done some mighty 80’s cover songs too.

  8. Well I need to sing along so it would have to be songs I know all the words to, being a product of the 80’s, and I know you’ll hate me for this, I have to pick Madonna, or George Micheal – including his Wham days. I know – you’re wincing as you’re reading this! Have a good weekend!

    Comment by Maria on May 9, 2008
  9. One band? The rest of my life? I would be screwed because my taste changes every five seconds….
    Thank you, Isabella. That is an awesome thing to remember.

  10. Ooooh tough one. I would have to say The Stereophonics for me, they have two records that I can listen to endlessly. As well, I could totally live off of Belle and Sebastian.

  11. Counting Crows, for sure. Again, they have tons of albums and a lot of variety.

    Coldplay wouldn’t be too bad either, and lately I’m digging some chick music like Carrie Underwood and Colbie Callait — but they don’t have enough albums out to make the cut.

  12. Ha those words of wisdom from Isabella are HYSTERICAL.

    I’d have to say Pearl Jam and The Beatles. Can’t go wrong with either!!

  13. I don’t even watch Survivor but I tuned in just in time to watch the end last night and I am so glad I did. LOL

    There is just no way I could go through life on one band! But if I have to choose I guess I’ll go with Led Zeppelin. It’s my old standby that I just couldn’t give up.

    Comment by AJ on May 9, 2008
  14. I think I’d die a slow painful death without music choices. But if I had to pick, I’d say James Taylor, just because I’ve loved him since I was a kid and I’ve never gotten sick of the same songs.

  16. I just come here for the advice on eating poo.

    I’m going to go with Alice in Chains.

    No. I’m not kidding.

  17. o0o0o thats a good one! I would have to say the Beatles or Cake.

  18. I agree with The Beatles, but if I had to listen to Radiohead for the rest of my life, it would be a very short life…they’d depress me into an early grave.

  19. the beatles, the stones, the crowes… tough choice.

    Comment by Giblet on May 9, 2008
  20. Hmmm…I would go with a composer. Danny Elfman. One? He is a KICK ASS orchestral soundtrack composer AND was the main man in Oingo Boingo so the list would be very long and very varied.

  22. erik, erik, erik. What a silly silly ice cream boy.

    U2 would be one band with Stone temple pilots being my close second.

  23. There are several reasons why I can’t answer that question. Not least of which is fact that I’m still not over the whole corn poo thing EWWWWWWWW!

  24. Yes Eric is the dumbest Survivor EVER… but tell me you have a heart Ali, and that I wasn’t the only person in the world who cried when he got hosed last night. You cried too right?

  25. This season of Survivor ROCKS. Seriously – the last four episodes have been better than every single season put together. Erik is an IDIOT.

    That’s pretty good advice from Bella.

    And, the Beatles. No doubt.

  29. We couldn’t believe that he gave his immunity away! I did feel badly when they started laughing as he went up to vote. I just couldn’t believe he gave it away! What was he thinking! My husband and I were laughing our asses off. What a dumbass!

    Comment by Ruby on May 9, 2008
  30. I would probabaly listen to Josh Groban or my brother in laws band, Irirsh Plantation Orchestra.

    Comment by Keri on May 10, 2008
  31. Ohhhh, toughie question there!! My musical preferences change by the second. I likely would have said the Beatles too … Radiohead is awesome as well.

    Lately though, I’m stuck on Emily Haines and Metric.

  33. Beatles, U2, Foo Fighters, AC/DC, Elvis, Ugly Kid Joe!

    I love music.

    My advice: “Never squat when wearing spurs”
    (I know I borrowed it, but I’m tired!)

    Comment by krissy on May 10, 2008
  34. Isabella is one smart cookie.

    I’d go with Nine Inch Nails. I think. Depends on my mood.

  36. I’ll have to go with The Beatles and Dave Matthews Band.

    (And don’t tell, but I have a monster secret: I’ve never seen a single episode of Survivor. Gosh, now I feel all dirty…)

    Comment by LAVENDULA on May 12, 2008
  40. Definitely not Scarlett Johansson. Shouldn’t the girl learn how to act before she tries to sing?

    Okay, I need to think about who would be on my list. I’m still trying to get over the no poo-eating, even when there’s corn.
