how gay are you?


Jeff Tweedy, so gay

I've got a Google Alert set up for news about Wilco, which led me to page300's post from Tuesday about Love G-d's Way's list of bands that parents need to watch out for in order to prevent "homosexuality from invad(ing) family life."

Which leads me to ask, how gay am I?

I have given myself one point for every song by each band in the list that shows up in my iTunes library music collection.

How gay are YOU?

(By the way, Love G-d's Way is apparently just a fraud, but I still want to know how gay you are.)

Err... I'm not as patient or methodical as you... These are estimates based on memory...

Boy George etc. = 2
Depeche Mode = 1
Eminem = 4
Erasure = 14
Fischerspooner = 2
The Indigo Girls = 40 (uh-oh!)
Jay-Z = 2
Lil' Kim = 1
Madonna = 30
The Magnetic Fields = 4
Barry Manilow = 1
George Michael = 10
Morrissey/Smiths = 20
No Bob Mould, but I have Sugar = 20
Pet Shop Boys = 12
I fucking hate Phish (oops!)
(that is the first time I used the f-bomb on the internet)
Rolling Stones = 12
The Strokes = 1
Velvet Underground = 3
Rufus Wainright = 1
Wilco = 115

Equals... about... 295.

Just a little bit gay.

I'm getting the feeling that most people I know are just a little bit gay -- even my gay friends.

And NO ONE is as methodical as I am, but the WORLD is more patient than I am.

Oh that is just a stupid poll. Music is music and good music is punk or new wave--if it's from a gay band or not.

abf said...

Joke. It. Was. A. Joke. A comment on the stupidity of those who suggest that music could make you gay, make you kill, make you do anything more than dance and sing along.

Yeesh.

But thanks for stopping by.

Soo If i have about 20 or 30 complete TWeedy/Wilco live shows on my computer that would be off the chart. It's hard not to be obsessive...

abf said...

Ahhh, Dexter has a sense of humor. We like Dexter.
