an interractive post

i'm taking a few polls. please join in.

1.) in your opinion, what is the best karaoke song?

2.) would you ever have sex for money? if so, how much would it take?*

3.) you got any favorite posts of mine? am thinking of adding a "reader favorites" to the sidebar but i don't think any of them are particularly good. if you think i'm wrong, let me know.

*i've been getting e-mails asking whether this question is up here for any particular reason. a friend of em and mel's offered them (we're not sure whether or not it was in jest), 2K a month each for free reign of their sexual talents. we were shocked at how inadequate the offer was. we all kind of agreed that we'd have to be paid a few thousand (at least) to sleep with this guy even once. he is not good looking. we also also agreed that it would cost a lot less for someone who was better looking. it's shallow i know, but for those who can be bought, you'd probably agree.

33 people who played with me:

Blogger Thomas A. Bishop said...

1.) "She's Got A Way" by Billy Joel

2.) Yes...not much money, but enough to make it worth the time (and the attractivness of the other person would be a factor as well)

3.) I'm a recent reader, so I can't say that I have a favorite...but every post has been really good.

1) "Song 2" by Blur :) (woo-hoo!)

2) Absolutely. But I'd need at least a couple of hundred.

3) Hmm... let me see... well the first HNT was pretty good. But I think the 100 Things list was where your personality attacked the reader for the first time, and never let go. In my opinion, anyway.

1. The sign. Ace of Base

2. I would, but I'm not sure anyone would pay. I mean, mullets are great, but you have to have the legs to back them up, you know?

3. Yes, I like the stalking ones. And the ass. Yes, yes the ass.

I've been thinking of putting together a "grosser than gross" sidebar addition. What do you think.

1) Shirley Bassey, Hey Big Spender

2) I think (1) might answer that question. Ostensibly no, but the whole sugar daddy thing has appeal. (As long as he was a very distinguished and attractive sugar daddy. Let's not be gross.)

3) Sorry, I haven't been a very regular reader. Clearly my loss.

1.since i saw lost in translation i love that crappy eighties number bill murray does (can't remember the name)

2. yes.and probly not that much. depends on the man, but i'd be quite happy to clear my uni debts for one night (this amounts to about 4 thousand pound immediate debt) and the rest for a second nite (about 9 thousand)

Honestly, I suggest you limit yourself to one or two polls. "A few" poles could be painful, and increases the chance of infection.

1. 'Maggie May' by Rod Stewart.

2. Never never never!...(unless he looks a bit like Jude Law, in which case I'd do it gladly for a dime.)

3. Your blog is very good. It's hard to find one post better than the others.

1. Hot Stuff - Donna Summer (Don't ask.)

2. Put a cash value on it and they would start to expect a performance. I'd prefer to keep it free and easy.

3) A Diatribe or Living in Fear.

1) killing me softly (lauryn-hill style).
2) no.
3) the ones in which you make the reader get a real taste for new york. the city is a character in itself.

1) No karaoke is good karaoke!
2) I'll have sexy for any good, or not so good reason. But only while I'm single... Now's your chance!
3) I've seen you around but Eeky failed to tell you. I started a blog here and thought you might enjoy. I'll try and be more attentive!

1. saving all my love by whitney houston. any song that involves belting is a good karaoke song.

2. no. does taking you out to dinner count?

3. i like the dating in ny ones!

1. Piano Man by Billy Joel (I'm old ... what can I say)

2. No one would ever pay me to have sex with them. I also would never pay to have sex with someone ... either on the pro escort circuit or an amateur. Pay for someone to get nekkid for me ... I'm GUILTY!

3. Hard to choose a favorite post of yours. The apartment hunt series was very New York. The sex with celebrities was dirty. The HNT debut was delicious!

Blogger Sarah_A said...

1. "Edge Of Seventeen" - Stevie Nicks.

2. no

3. Ooh, ok, blast from the past but I liked the iPod haiku with a (then) record number of comments!

Blogger The Stormin Mormon said...

1: Jesus' song from "Stewie Griffen: The Untold Story" And if you think I'm kidding just ask JFTB.

2: Yes, but I'm not sure we mean the same thing here... Usually the man asks the woman how much money it would be.

3: Well HNT round one was pretty impressive, but the one where you made your Ex-Plaything out to be an Impotent yet Pre-Ejaculating moron was pretty damn funny!

Blogger Malkin said...

1) Something without lyrics?? (sorry, not a karaoke fan)

2) Probably not. . . I do have SOME morals. Besides, it would be completely unnecessary to offer me money.

3) Too much of a Jazz . . . in strange places noobie.

Blogger omar said...

1) Copacabana, by your friend and mine, Barry Manilow.

2) No, because unless I was getting paid by my wife, it would be adultery. I'm not down with adultery.

3) I like the diatribe post and the one where you exposed limp adonis. And your 100 things.

2k a month ... LOL. Maybe for a night. LOL

10/17/2005 2:29 PM  
Blogger JustJunebug said...

1) Chain of Fools

2) exactly. $2K a month is laughable if this guy is not brad pitt or something.

3) question too hard to answer

10/17/2005 3:03 PM  
Blogger KATE said...

1) I Touch Myself by The Divinyls

2) Ummm... I don't think I could live with myself or my conscience... but I wouldn't judge someone who did... ya gotta do what ya gotta do

3) Though I am new, I loved your HNT debut, your post about the final conversation with Adonis, and the Gavin DeGraw bashings were GREAT!! BUT, I love how I feel like I know about NY when I read your blog... so stuff like that!!

1) I change favorite songs every week, but the most romantic waltz ever is "Come Away With Me" by Norah Jones.
2) Depends on their attractiveness, shallow but true. A few drinks would do the trick. Bad pun, sorry.
3) It is your therapeutic blog, write whatever moves you and it will be good.

1) Actually, I don't know if I have a favorite, but I have heard average guys and gals actually do great renditions of the following:

Song 2 - Blur
Ascension (Don't Ever Wonder) - Maxwell
Possession - Sarah McLachlan
Wild Horses - Rolling Stones

I like kareoke nights when people get up and put forth a decent effort. But when the people cannot carry a tune, it hurts my bones.

2) I think my attraction to the potential client would dictate whether I would even consider an indecent proposal on this lines. Depending on how much she were willing to pay would also dictate how hot a time she will have.

3) Yeah, the dating ones are pretty cool. I can relate to many of them. But overall ALL of your posts I enjoy!

Did I completely hallucinate responding to this post? Crummy. That could be bad for my future.

1) Rebel Yell by Billy Idol.
2) No
3) We all know I love celeb stalking stuff...

Blogger Syar said...

1 : No idea. I don't karaoke. its for the betterment of humankind.

2 : No. That mostly has to do with religion not allowing premarital sex. (am saving myself for marriage, see?) But if that wasn't the case...who knows.

3. The posts by guest writers are good. the celeb stalkings are awesome, and totally eye opening. :-) ah, I can't pick the TRULY TRULY marvellous ones cause there's so many.

Blogger Michelle said...

1) We Are The Champions or Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen

2) I don't think I'd ever sleep with someone for money! I have to reeeaaally like the person romantically first <=)

3) Celeb stalker posts!

Blogger scribe called steff said...

1. I've often sung "Doo Wah Diddy Diddy" by Mannfred Mann.

2. In theory, isn't it always for money? Everyone gets a little somethin' out of somethin'somethin'. But in reality, I'd have to be attracted to the guy, and then yes, I'd have sex for money. A couple grand a month would be a nice start (expecially if I'm attracted to him.) But if there's no attraction, there's no way I could fuck him. I'm not wired that way.

3. I can't think of a stand-out post or anything. You're just Jazz. :) Ain't that enough?

ScribecalledSteph...insightful and funny. "A couple grand a month"...classic.

1. Danke Shoen Wayne Newton, for sure.
2. No, I would not have sex for money. But when you were younger and paying for beer .. was that paying for it? smirk

1. The "Cheers" Theme song. Hell, you don't even have to sing. The whole bar joins you.

2. I'm a guy. It all depends on attractiveness.
