Groggy random ten

Good morning. I'm happily exhausted from my night out. For now, here's the random ten this morning. The list is heavy on music from my eldest:

Words of Advice—William S. Burroughs

Flower Pot—Captain Beefheart

Something About England—The Clash

I Am Forever—Rancid

Cat Man—Gene Vincent

Valentine #1—The Sisters of Mercy

Cry Baby Cry—Narvel Felts

Ayami—West African Rhythm Brothers

Cascade—Siouxsie and the Banshees

Ziggy Stardust—David Bowie

Another couple cups of coffee and it's back to the pile.

"back to the pile" makes me think of the Family Guy episode I saw last night where the gang was stuck on a deserted island and decided to have an orgy. "Anyone horny?"

"nope."

"nope."

"nope."

Didn't Captain Beefheart do "Two Triple Cheeseburgers, Side Order Of Fries?"

That's what pissed me off about MTV's revisionist history when they claimed that when they started, there only so many videos. There were plenty of ecletic music videos that had even greater value on the entertainment scale and they completely neglected them in favor of Brit Pop.

"back to the pile" is a lovely phrase which I might have to use as a replacement for "back to work".

Nice selection of music.

Good luck with the pile, sir.

I've got most of those on my hard drive. I think I make a Bubs playlist

Don't feel bad. There's a guy round here who had a woodchip pile in his driveway for three years, that I know of.

Bubs said...

kirby, thanks for the words of encouragement. As it turned out, I said fuggit and didn't lift a shovel to it today. Instead I cleaned house, baked a bread pudding and cooked gumbo.

Gifted, swell! We can compare notes.

Mob, thanks.

Splotchy, I thought so too.

WP, you're right!

Cap'n...heh. I missed that one, but I can picture it.

My wife digs Sisters of Mercy. I poke fun at her for this.

I also need some Captain Beefheart. Fun stuff.

I finally got Ziggy Stardust, one of the first albums I ever bought, on cd not long ago. It still sounds great these days.

My friend who lives in Seattle lived for years in Oakland in an apartment building that had come to be known as the "punk rock building." Members of Rancid and Green Day lived there at various times.
