Suddenly I See


Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love to answer the questions, however, and here is today's questions!

Saturday 9: Suddenly I See (2005)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.


1) This song is a tribute to Patti Smith, the rocker who inspired KT Tunstall. What woman who has inspired you?

2) In this video, you can see a turntable and an LP. When is the last time you played a record?

3) Growing up, Ms. Tunstall seldom sang at home because her father is severely hearing impaired and music interfered with his sensitive hearing aid. Do you, or does anyone in your family, wear a hearing aid?

4) In high school, she got experience performing on street corners. Have you ever tipped a street musician?

5) When this song was popular, Microsoft introduced the Xbox 360 to North America. Are you into gaming?

6In 2005, Prince Charles married his long-time love, Camilla Parker Bowles. At the time of their wedding, 73% of Brits said they disapproved of her. Today, her popularity has increased somewhat and her disapproval has dropped to 55%. Do you know anyone who married someone you didn't like? Did their spouse grow on you with time?
 
7) Harry Potter ad the Goblet of Fire was popular in theaters. Who is your favorite "Harry Potter" character?

8) In 2005, YouTube was introduced by three young men who met while working at PayPal. What's the last thing you paid for using PayPal?
 
9) Random Question: After a long, exhausting day of travel, you check into a motel. The room is not at all to your liking. It's next to the ice machine, so you can hear cubes dropping noisily into metal buckets. Your view is of the parking lot. The bathtowels and thin and tiny. In short, you feel like you're being ripped off. Do you grab your bag, turn on your heel and check out, hoping there are better accommodations nearby? Or do you say, "What the hell, it's only one night," and climb into bed?




Thanks so much for joining us again at Saturday: 9. As always, feel free to come back, see who has participated and comment on their posts. In fact sometimes, if you want to read & comment on everyone's responses, you might want to check back again tomorrow. But it is not a rule. We haven’t any rules here. Join us on next Saturday for another version of Saturday: 9, "Just A Silly Meme on a Saturday!" Enjoy your weekend!

Hey -- I just saw "Beautiful, the Carole King musical" last night. How about a series of questions based on Carole King?

I loved that show, too. ;) Keep it in mind when Sam opens the forum up to your suggestions. I promise you'll get what you ask for.

I saw Beautiful on Broadway and I loved it! I'm waiting for it to come on tour in Hartford.

Okay, I'm here - very late as per usual! And I'm exhausted, but I got it done and enjoyed it. ;) Forgive me??
