Respectful Insolence

My theme song?

When the test fits my interests, I cannot resist a fellow ScienceBlogger (although I did manage to resist this particular meme that’s been spreading through our little community). Like a lemming, compelled by Grrlscientist, I answer:

Your Theme Song is Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd

“There is no pain, you are receding.
A distant ship’s smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.”

You haven’t been feeling a lot lately, and you think that’s a good thing.
The comfortable part is nice… but you should really work on numb.

A little bit scary, actually, because it may not be too far from the truth, although Janet’s result would have probably fit as well.

While we’re at it…

You Are a Freedom Rocker!

You’re stuck in the 70s – for better or worse
Crazy hair, pot soaked clothes, and tons of groupies
Your kind showed the world how to rock
Is that freedom rock?… Well turn it up man!

This test was annoying, because it lumped the Darkness in with David Bowie and Queen, which made it impossible for me to select that option…

But this sounds promising:

Your Band Name is:

The Pink Wizards

    If I were to form a band, right now, we’d probably be the Adjective Nouns. I say this because the tests hate me (Oops I Did It Again? *gag*).

    My theme song was quite off (Fight for your Right by the Beastie Boys?!), but the rocker one has me as a Chick Rocker. As a girl who does know how to play guitar, I appreciated that.

    Heh. For my band name, I got The Free Range Bananas. :)

    I got the same theme song you did, but that’s not even the right answer from that album, for me. I don’t like the questions, though: there’s no option for “happily married”…

    My band name (a name I’d never use) was “The Supersized Pit Bulls,” Freedom Rockers, apparently (again, the choices on that one stink).

    Hmmmm…’Comfortably numb’. Good band for an aneshesiologist, perhaps. Well, at least you didn’t get some monster hard rock. A surgeon should have some nice, precise classical music.

    “Born to be Wild” by Steppenwolf.

    I was annoyed by the assumptions that the person taking the survey was not in a relationship at all.

    I mean… how do I answer a question about “previous relationship” when I have been married for 26 years? One can assume that any previous to my hubby is not really part of my “theme song”.

    Oh, crud… does this meen I have outed myself to old fogey music? Well, if it does, I will note that I am only 5 years older than Orac!

    Ha ha, I wonder how many underground / young bands have used that band name generator to decide on a name. I was in three bands (so long ago…) and to find a name was always such a hassle. One of the band’s went through three name changes. That’s nothing, though, I have friend’s who have gone through five name changes. And, actually, all their name’s were pretty cool – what sucked was some other band had the same name, and would get signed, and then they would have to change their name. One of the horrible things about the industry (one of the many, actually…)

    I never heard that there’s such thing as band name generator not until today. Here in our place, band names are taken from special moments in the lives of the band members.
