If it was a tropical island, with food and water, I'd forgive you for stranding me there. But only if you had some good music.... (records? wtf are you gonna play them on?)

I've got these coconut shells we can clap together? Besides we could dress your husband up in a grass skirt when we get bored.

We could make instruments out of palm trees. For reeelz.

Body boarding on weaved leaves anyone?

Getting stranded on an island sounds too fun about now.

I'd choose my friends 'cause:

"I got words in my head so I sing them
........I don't let life get me down
Can't hold onto my blues so I play them


......I got the music in me
......I got the music in me
...I got the music in me, yea

......I got the music in me
......I got the music in me
......I got the music in me
"

Bwahhaaa...Homeless Guy and I were at a restaurant along the river, well actually in the bar downstairs...he glanced out the window and for some reason there was a soccer ball floating down the river. Without missing a beat he cries "Willllsonnnnnnnnn!"

lolz!!

That was my favorite part of the movie. The unlikely frienship that sprang up...

Sometimes I say Wilson! in inapropriate moments, and no one gets it but me...heh.

That's like sometimes out of nowhere I'll yell "SCIENCE" and watch the stares.

We SO have to get together sometime and see how much we can intimidate with our combined weirdness.

I must be a sociopath too. My first thought was "Of course friends. Like you're really gonna fuck one of your records?"

Well, you didn't say the island was actually deserted, or if there was electricity. What good would it do to take music with you if there is no way to play it? Besides, if you have friends with you, you can make your own music. that's always more fun.

Any amount of music you brought (assuming there's a way to play it on an island with no other people) will get repetitive after enough time.

I'd bring my friends, and we'd have a crazy rube goldberg house going in no time. Plus, about half of my friends are fellow circus performers so we'd never get bored.

And if I could get all those friends to stick a deck of cards in their pockets, I'd really be set.
