Your Lives Suck

If any of your lives are ever made into movies, I will not be going to see them because they will have no music at all. Even "silent" movies had a musical soundtrack. My biopic, however, would be an international hit due in large part to the amazing soundtrack and the Oscar-winning performances of Brad Pitt (playing me) and Scarlett Johansson (playing herself) who will fall in love with, and presumably have awesome awesome sex with, me.

"vita detestabilis nunc obdurat et tunc curat ludo mentis aciem"

An extra ten points for a translation.

Ten points for me:

life treats us detestably: first oppressing then caressing shifts us like pawns in its play.

okay, I admit it. I used google.

Hey, Google is encouraged in that sort of thing around here.

Well, you get the ten points for the translation, but you didn't name that tune so there are still five points up for grabs.

Holy crap Holy crap Holy crap, BENNERS BIRFDAY!!!! Now, moving on...others should also make a soundtrack for their lives. Please, for the love of God, make it better than mine. And happy birthday again, Ben.

Well many thanks to you both! As a reward you both get Ra points! Happily, I did get drunk and received not a one butt punch. And yes, others really should post their soundtracks, as I've announced that they're worth Ra points...

Soundtrack to Rob’s awesome autobiographical movie about loss and redemption; about the dangers of mixing a liberal arts education, postmodern tendencies, and large quantities of scotch; a buddy film about a man and a pie:

“Dude, Where’s my Kafka?”

Opening scene, high school ends. Rob embarks on a series of humorous college misadventures until things start to go darker…
I’ve Been Waiting – Matthew Sweet
Get Myself Arrested – Gomez
Da Booty – Tribe Called Quest

College ends, real life begins. Rob takes a job in NYC and finds magic in everything…
I Fall in Love Too Easily – Chet Baker
Autumn in New York – Billie Holliday
Opened Once – Jeff Buckley
Possibly Maybe – Bjork
Living Space – John Coltrane

Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice.
Song for Lovers – Richard Ashecroft
Group Dancers – Charles Mingus
Concierto de Aranjuez (adagio) – Miles Davis

Rob gets the heck out of Dodge and things go from bad to worse.
Adagio for Strings – Samuel Barber
One More Robot - The Flaming Lips
Is this desire? – PJ Harvey

Climbing out of a long, dark tunnel
Back in NYC – Genesis
Sweet Al George - Brad
Almost Like Being in Love – Nat King Cole

Well, I was going to dock you five points for posting this in the wrong thread, but I'll refund them for creativity.
