What is your favorite new hobby or activity that you’ve taken up in quarantine?

I haven’t really done anything new except exclusively listen to Queen (literally listening to Queen rn) and I’m kind of worried that I’m being annoying rec’ing their songs so much but like whatever (I’m listening to Sleeping on the Sidewalk rn… just btw…)

Re-listen to one of your favorite songs/albums from when you were younger. Write down your feelings, reactions, and thoughts. Post them as the answer to this question.

Since I have the brain capacity of a maggot I can’t remember what I liked to listen to a a child but since Mulan is great and once made a playlist with just “I’ll Make A Man Out of You” twenty-five times, I guess I’ll relisten to that one.


  • Shang is fantastic
  • Mulan is fantastic
  • This song is fantastic
  • I love this song
  • I love this movie
  • There’s no way I’m watching the live action
  • Yes

Text/email a friend and ask for a song recommendation. Listen to the song. Write down your feelings, reactions, and thoughts, and post them.

So I asked my brother because he has impeccable music tastes. here’s the link:


  • Yes
  • Yes
  • Yes
  • Yes
  • this brings me back to my suessical play where thing one, thing two, and the grinch did the macarena during the bows. iconic
  • Yes
  • Yes
  • Yes
  • Yes
  • Yes
  • Yes
  • Yes
  • Yes
  • Yes
  • Yes
  • Yes

Which song was more fun to listen to? Do you like listening to old or new (to you) music better?

Janakin really outdid himself with that one! It’s perfect. I love it. Yes.

And I guess I’ll Make A Man Out Of You is still utterly fantastic.

    YESSS I LOVE I’LL MAKE A MAN OUT OF YOU SO MUCH IT’S LIKE THE BEST DISNEY SONG IN EXISTENCE!!! (okay YES YES YES) (also I still wanna see the live-action rip) (BUT I’M SAD THAT THERE’S NO MUSHU) (but I get that they want it to be actually accurate to the Ballad of Mulan) (since the Disney Mulan was actually banned in China because it’s offensive to the original ballad) (BUT MUSHU) (it’s okay I’ll deal with it) (BUT IT’S SO EXPENSIVE ON DISNEY+ LIKE???) (it’s okay I’ll pirate it)
    i never thought I’d read the sentence: “the grinch did the macarena during the bows. iconic” but I feel blessed to have read it
