Glam

Gotta admit to being into his music enough to know which answers to pick to get this result--and holding my breath that I'd done so (yeah, I know. Go ahead and call me a dork). All hail Quarblotz, from whose live journal I ripped this one.


iggy pop
You are Iggy Pop, and you snap, crackle, and pop
like fireworks. You have boundless energy, and
you're invincible. You should be dead by now,
you know that, right? You survive everything,
and never get fat. You're spastic, and a great
dancer...you probably could be a contortionist
if you wanted to. You love to shock, and rock,
and do so better than anyone else. Sometimes
your irresponsiblity drives your friends nuts,
and your drug habits can be annoying, but you
are an excellent performer nonetheless and
probably like metallic pants. You never sound
insincere.

Lou Reed.
"God, you are cool, can I touch you so the magic will rub off?
You are perceptive, witty, and badass. You wear cool shades, even at night, and probably wear black more than most people. You don't give a fuck what other people think, but you are also very sensitive in the way that you pick up on things that others don't. Sometimes you come off as an asshole, but that's what makes you cool. You are a poet, and you embody New York City. You will still be hip when you are old, and artists love you."

Man - they nailed it!
 
Man, both of those are so spot on.

Hey!...I'm...Brian Eno.

Uh, yeah.
 
Gotta admit, if I'm truthful with the answers, I get Lou Reed as well. But I really, really like Iggy (just put his music on and watch me spaz, guaranteed...), and I know what answers to give to get him as a result. And I was disturbingly pleased with having done so.

"Your skin starts itchin' once you buy the gimmick
of love love love,
yeah som'thin' called love,
well, that's like hypnotizin' chickens..."

How can you NOT like lyrics like that?
 
"You're Marc Bolan, the man behind T. Rex.
You are a glam machine, original as all hell.
You really know how to flaunt your eccentricities, and you write funny nonsensical, mystical lyrics. Sometimes you can seem like a parody of yourself, but hey, no one can do you better than yourself. (?). You have a distinctive style, and you are skilled at combining many influences to create something new and fresh. You are a sensation, a striking phenomenon. Too bad you'll die tragically, and young. "

I wonder if the result would've changed if I gone with the "style" answer that I really wanted: "Nipples! I don't wear shirts."
 
T. Rex woulda been an acceptable second, s'far's I go...but I kinda figured answering 'nipples' was one of the keys to getting Iggy.
 
Yeah, I just figured it would've been slightly dishonest as a female to opt to say that I go topless all the time.

Even if it's true.
