I’m taking a break from our usual programming to answer some questions courtesy of @positivedisplacement (via @chaunceyandchumleysdad), but I’m going to bend the rules just a bit. Instead of putting my music collection on shuffle and answering each question based on the song that pops up, I’m going to cheat and answer based on songs from my record collection. It’s not quite as random, but I hope you enjoy the list below just as much.
5. This song describes your life at the moment: “Once in a Lifetime” by Talking Heads. How did I get here?
6. This song to make love to: “Adore” by Prince. Or any Prince song, really.
7. This song to dance your heart out: “Modern Love” by David Bowie. I mean it’s the first song off an album called Let’s Dance so how could this not be the right answer.
8. The song that will make you cry: “Two-Headed Boy, Part Two”
by Neutral Milk Hotel. Such a sad song made even sadder when you hear Jeff put
his guitar down when he gets up to leave at the end and knowing we may never
hear another new NHM song again.
01.love will tear us apart (12″ version) - Joy Division // 02. boys don’t cry [single version] - The Cure // 03.some girls are bigger than others - The Smiths // 04.psycho killer - Talking Heads // 05.burning down the house - Talking Heads // 06.lonely boy - The Black Keys // 07.it’s my life - No Doubt // 08. lovefool - The Cardigans // 09.zombie - The Cranberries // 10. heroes - David Bowie // 11.creep - Radiohead // 12. i wanna be adored - The Stone Roses // 13. just like honey - The Jesus and Mary Chain // 14. shut up kiss me - Angel Olsen // 15. don’t let me down - The Beatles // 16.ziggy stardust - David Bowie // 17.pale blue eyes - The Velvet Underground
I did this recently on my main blog but my answers are *somewhat* different for this one, so… here goes.

Song stuck in my head: The Star Wars theme as sung acapella by Jimmy Fallon and the Roots and the TFA cast bc that clip was on my dash again and of course it’s stuck in my head
Last show I watched: Happy Valley (which is fucking INCREDIBLE btw)
When did I create this blog: The evening of December 14, immediately after seeing TLJ. My dash is… well, let’s just say it’s not always terribly supportive of Reylo, and I felt creating a side-blog was the least stressful way to go about my current mania.
What do I post: pretty Reylo art and fic that other, talented people make. Mediocre Reylo fanfic that I make.
What did I last google: our favorite local restaurant to see if it’s open this week (NARRATOR: it isn’t open this week)(stupid college towns are stupid)
Other blogs: I have about a half dozen sideblogs and one main blog
Do I get asks: Sometimes
Why did I choose this URL: Because I wanted to pick something that sounded as emo and drama-llama as the Skywalkers themselves. Anything with the word “whispers” in it gets the job done, I think.
Following: many hundreds – though I think a bunch are inactive
Followers: given that this blog is only two weeks old, way more than I expected
