John Peel Gravestone
John Peel Gravestone
Steve points us at The Guardian's gravestone meme inspired by the news that John Peel's grave has a line from an Undertones song on it. The mind boggles as to why the Telegraph had a picture of the actual stone but none of the other media sources did, I assume stupidity? Anyway, the questions:
1) Which lyric would you have on your tombstone?
2) Which song has been the soundtrack to your life?
3) Do you have any suggestions for the pop-music epitaphs of world figures?
I answered on his post but, y'know, I was going to link the picture anyway because, well: Dude! John Peel!

And it is a most excellent gravestone. So I guess you want my answers, right?

Ah well, any more takers?

Tag 7 people to keep doing it? Ok, I got tagged by [ profile] stonefox84 and [ profile] johnwordsworth. Who's from Bude. So it's only fair to tag [ profile] susannah_banana, what with her being a famous DJ and all (Hi Suze!). So, having tagged a DJ, how about a club promoter? [ profile] ollyb. Meh, bored with explanations. [ profile] nadriel, [ profile] tiredstars, [ profile] faeriecween, [ profile] aliennurai and, um, [ profile] lithium_doll, but only because she keeps proclaiming she's not a goth so I want to know what she does like...

The value of my blog(s)... )
It measures how many blogs link to your blog, but only those that ping, which I think is only paid accounts on LJ. A mention of a named lj user (like [ profile] matgb) links to the /users/username not the username.livejournal so you don't get links to there. But still, tis suitably silly.

Oh, happy birthday today to [ profile] daweaver, tomorrow to [ profile] _mindrape_ and the day after to [ profile] rx_ritalin. On that, can a non-paid user tell me what they get when they go to My LJ Portal? Sheer curiosity.
