Friday Random Ten

Jarvis Cocker looking like my dream man

Probably the only good thing that comes from working in the automotive industry is that every year I get the first two weeks of July off so that the plants can shutdown and switch over production to the new model year. As a result, today is my last day of work until July 18th. That means, dear readers, that my blogging these next couple of weeks will probably be even more sporadic than usual, since I tend to avoid computers like the plague when I'm on vacation. Can you blame me?

But you don't really care about my vacation. What you care about is the Friday Random Ten. And who am I to deny you? So, welcome to your Friday Random Ten "What the fuck is a bwrw glaw?" edition.

  1. Career Opportunities - The Clash
  2. Shipbuilding - Elvis Costello
  3. I Want You to Want Me (live) - Cheap Trick
  4. Live Bed Show - Pulp
  5. Bloomington - Old 97s
  6. Patio Song - Gorky's Zygotic Mynci*
  7. Pictures of You - The Cure
  8. The Sound of Settling - Death Cab for Cutie
  9. Scenario - A Tribe Called Quest
  10. I Had a Time - Embrace

Your turn!

I found out what a bwrw glaw is! Actually, the lyric is "mae'n bwrw glaw," and it's Welsh for "It's raining." Kind of anticlimactic, really.

Kill Yourself at Work is me... although it busted down the other day and when I tried to reorder/add songs it just started adding the same ones over and over again. Pain in the ass.

So here's my list:

"Against All Odds" - Postal Service*
"Where Is My Mind" - Nada Surf
"Sympathy for the Devil" - Roling Stones
"10 lbs." - The Super Friendz
"This is a Message" - Joel Plaskett
"One-Stop" - Plumtree
"Strawberry Letter 23" - The Bros. Johnson
"This Must Be the Place" - Talking Heads
"Get Your Hands Off My Woman" - Darkness
"Of Course" - White Stripes

*How much do I love this song, BTW? It kicks Phil Collins' ass. You can hear it for yourself here.
