Friday Random Ten: Is it 5 Yet? Edition

Time is ticking by so slowly this afternoon. I had thought I had packed my trusty iPod away in some random box during the move so I didn't have it for a couple weeks. I found it the other day in my backpack. Silly me putting things in logical places. Here's the rundown:

  1. Panda Bear - Bros
  2. The Echoing Green - The Power Cosmic
  3. ABC - S.O.S.
  4. Erasure - Can't Help Falling In Love With You
  5. Weezer - Possibilities
  6. Fiona Apple - Oh Sailor
  7. Bonnie Prince Billy - Willow Trees Bend
  8. The Brakes - Song of Imponderables
  9. Broken Social Scene - Our Faces Split the Coast
  10. Belle and Sebastian - Simple Things

I've got to say this was a quality job on the part of the ol' iPod. Nice job. If I ever make a movie, I have decided I will use that Erasure cover during the credits both as a homage to Some Kind of Wonderful and a tribute to the band themselves. Is it weird that I actually have a movie soundtrack planned out but no real movie to accompany it? One day, perhaps. Hope you all have a good weekend.

Friday Random Ten - It's Hot Out There Edition

It's looking to be a pretty warm weekend here in SoCal. I'm out the door in 12 minutes so we better make this fast.
  1. Kasabian - Processed Beats
  2. The White Stripes - Conquest (Version Acustica De Mariachi)
  3. U2 - A Room at the Heartbreak Hotel
  4. Smashing Pumpkins - Eva Adore
  5. Alanis Morissette - Hands Clean
  6. Denison Witmer - Little Flowers
  7. Joy Electric - The Carousel of Progress
  8. The Jesus & Mary Chain - Tumbledown
  9. People Noise - Harrison Bergeron
  10. Bad Religion - You Are The Government
Guess the old iPod wasn't in the mood for hip hop today. That's it kiddies, I'm out of here.

Friday Random 10 - Welcome Back, PC

After a brief hiatus my PC is back in action so I finally got to load some new stuff on the iPod. I also started using Media Monkey at the urging of Justin and Jon and I'm beginning to fall in love with it. Let's see if any of the new stuff shows up today.

  1. Pet Shop Boys - I Wouldn't Normally Do This Kind of Thing
  2. They Might Be Giants - Hearing Aid
  3. The Stone Roses - This is the One
  4. Johnny Cash - Sundy Morning Coming Down
  5. Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Honeybear
  6. Tori Amos - Black-Dove (January)
  7. Oasis - Lyla
  8. Jay-Z - American Dreamin'
  9. Vast - I Don't Have Anything
  10. Morrissey - Jack the Ripper

None of my new stuff popped up. The newest thing on that list is the Jay-Z track from American Gangster and that's from last year. Well, it's time to go home. Hope you all have a good weekend.

Friday Random Ten

It's been awhile and I think my iPod is about to run out of battery life so let's see if we can make it through this.

  1. Beastie Boys - Putting Shame In Your Game
  2. Of Montreal - Waiting on the Weather
  3. Sweeney Todd Soundtrack - Alms! Alms!
  4. Beastie Boys - Groove Holmes
  5. Soul Junk - Rap City Ark
  6. Blur - Chemical World
  7. Jimmy Eat World - Feeling Lucky
  8. Animal Collective - Winter Wonder Land

At this point my iPod died so let's see what my Pandora station has to offer for the last two tracks.

  1. Interpol - Roland
  2. Robyn - Do You Know

That's quite an eclectic selection. I should be getting my PC back from Jon this weekend so I can get some new tunes on the iPod. I've been listing to Pandora a lot at work and my station is pretty darn good for my tastes. I think I'm really confusing the heck out of it though with the mix of electronic, indie, and bubblegum pop I've been throwing at it lately. Right now it's playing All Saints. I had forgotten all about them. Okay, enough of the embarrassing music revelations. For the good stuff, head over to Justin's. Even he isn't without a few skeleton's in the closet though.

Friday Random Ten

It's the Pi Day edition of the Random Ten. Let 'er rip, Mr. iPod.

  1. Erasure - Breath of Life
  2. Snow Patrol - Untilted
  3. The Postal Service - This Place is a Prison
  4. The Beatles - Lady Madonna
  5. The White Stripes - Now Mary
  6. The Hives - It Won't Be Long
  7. Modest Mouse - The Good Times are Killing Me
  8. Better Than Ezra - Daylight
  9. The Beatles - Sexy Sadie
  10. R.E.M. - Make it All Okay

Nicely done, iPod. I think I need to name you. Any ideas? I would give this mix an 8.5/10, pretty solid effort and two Beatles songs while pretty much avoiding A-Sides.

I am so ready for the weekend. Hopefully these tunes will somehow magically make my workday go by faster.

  1. Echo & The Bunnymen - Lips Like Sugar
  2. Nick Drake - The Thoughts of Mary Jane
  3. James - Sometimes (Lester Piggott)
  4. Sufjan Stevens - The Tallest Man, The Broadest Shoulders

  7. Okkervil River - John Allyn Smith Sails
  8. Outkast - Reset
  9. Eminem - Rabbit Run
  10. Morrissey - Hold On To Your Friends

Leave it to the iPod to come up with a mix like that. Hopefully those magic powers will materialize soon.

I missed last week due to illness but now I'm finally feeling better. It's raining a whole lot out here. There's a new version of iTunes and I'm downloading it at 1 MB per second. Dang. On with the show:

  1. In The Mirror, from The Weight Is a Gift by Nada Surf
  2. Flugufrelsarinn, from Ágætis Byrjun by Sigur Rós
  3. Love Explosion, from Meladroit by Weezer
  4. Through, from Patience by George Michael
  5. Kiki Wombauk, from Go, Fluffy, Go! by Fluffy
  6. Someone's Calling, from After The Snow by Modern English
  7. You Make It Easy, from Moon Safari by Air
  8. Stella Was A Diver and She Was Always Down, from Turn on the Bright Lights by Interpol
  9. Very Loud, from Howl Howl Gaff Gaff by The Shout Out Louds
  10. Radiophonic, from Nightlife by The Pet Shop Boys

Wow, what a nice little picture of my music collection. A lot of mellow stuff, some random rock, some 80's New Wave, George Michael, and the Pet Shop Boys. I will admit right now that I had a friend who based on my music tastes was convinced I was gay. Seriously. She was surprised when I told her otherwise. And that's my funny story of the day. I'm off to work.
