Friday Random Ten

Erin McKeown
Ain't she grand?*

So, it occurred to me that I haven't complained about Psycho in a while. Turns out, whatever my manager said to her about her tardiness, absenteeism and general psychotic attitude has worked. She's been pretty bearable of late. Of course, because December is the busiest month of the year in the auto industry, we had to hire a temp to help out in the office. She's been dubbed Psycho Part Two. She's doesn't have the delicious blend of narcisism and paranoia (with a heaping helping of hysteria on the side) that marked the original Psycho flavor, but she comes with all kinds of psychological baggage of her own! It's a good thing she's only here for another week, because two Psychos would be enough to send me to therapy.

I've decided that I need to do something about paring down my mp3 collection. Partly because I'm going to need a second hard drive soon just to house music, but also because I seem incapable of doing a Friday Random Ten that doesn't include at least one Magnetic Fields song. Damn you 69 Love Songs!

  1. Borderline - Chris Mills
  2. Flyswatter - Eels
  3. Abigail, Belle of Kilronan - The Magnetic Fields
  4. fake palindromes - Andrew Bird
  5. Wierdo - The Charlatans
  6. Slung-Lo - Erin McKeown
  7. Date with the Night (live) - Yeah Yeah Yeahs
  8. Generals and Majors - XTC
  9. Madeline and Nine - Mike Doughty
  10. Me, Myself and I - De La Soul

Your turn!

UPDATE: The praying menaces have been sentenced to one-year probation, but claim they will continue to block gas station entrances if god tells them to. Fantastic.

*I apologize for that terrible pun.

Such a sweet day! Hey jen, I got an e-mail about something called Mate Match that is played on WBAM in Chicago. The story was about a woman who won a trip to Disney World for being very honest in answering questions. Is this real or an internet hoax? Do you know what I'm talking about?

3)World So Corrupt - Ziggy Marley
