Chart Rigger Turns 7 Today, So Here Are 7 Questions For You To Answer
One could say my work here is done, and, yes, I take full credit for it. Oh, I jest. But sometimes I do wonder if it's time for me to get an actual life and leave the pop trash-talking behind. Then I realize, well, I'd probably just be shooting up smack in an alleyway downtown in place of blogging, so...
Anyway, this blogiversary always creeps up on me, and I never quite know what to write about. That said, I found it much more interesting to hear about you this time last year. So once again, let's get to know each other a little better. (Yes, I'm talking to YOU.) And we'll make it 7-themed.
Here, I'll show you mine first. Then you show me yours...in the comments.
1. I turned 7 years old in ___, a year that was memorable because _________.
1981. It was the year MTV first hit the airwaves (though we didn't get it in my house till 1982).
2. Looking at the above 7 chart-topping singles, I can't believe ____ is sill around.
Flo Rida. His songs seem to me like they could have any interchangeable rapper thrown in for vocals. They also come across like one-hit wonder type singles. Then again, that probably just proves he's adaptable, and likely explains why we're still talking about him. Or maybe he's given all the right people handjobs?
3. Who released the best seventh single of their career out of these artists:
• Rihanna, "Umbrella"
• Britney Spears, "Lucky"
• Madonna, "Material Girl"
• Beyonce, "Check On It"
• Katy Perry, "Firework"
It's a toss-up between Madonna and Rihanna for me. Two vastly different pop singles from two vastly different eras. I flipped a coin and it came up RiRi, but I can't truly pick one over the other.
4. When I was 17, I was dating a (guy/girl) whose first name was _____.
I wasn't. Ages 17 through 19 marked a very "single" time period for me. I don't think I was really comfortable in my own skin then.
5. Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman star in a movie called Seven, which I saw _____.
Opening weekend, in the movie theater while on a first — and last — date. Guy was creepy, much like the movie. Whatever, I got a free meal at the Italian Oven on the edge of my university's campus out of it.
6. I'm still reading this trashy blog seven years later because _______.
Well, I'm still writing this blog seven years later because I think I'm obsessed with Britney's lopsided weave and Beyonce's attempts at still trying to have a pop career. Normal concerns for a healthy adult...right?
7. My birthday is ____.
February 7. See? It's related to the theme!
Now it's your turn. Hit me up below, and thanks for reading all these years later!
