Friday Random 10


I haven’t done a FR10 in ages! Since I need blog fodder, why not start it up again?

If you want to play along, simply put your mp3 player on random and blog the first 10 songs that come up! No cheating, either!

  1. Landslide. Smashing Pumpkins. Picsces Iscariot.
    Pisces Iscariot
    God I love this song. I love every version that I’ve heard. I think the Dixie Chicks do my favorite rendition. But I love the way Billy Corgan’s voice makes this song sound so sad.
  2. Morning Has Broken. Cat Stevens.
    Cat Stevens - Greatest Hits
    God I love this song, too! It’s been years since I’ve heard it! I almost feel like singing along but it might bother my hubby.
  3. Megalomaniac. Incubus. A crow left of the murder.
    A Crow Left of the Murder
    Incubus rocks. And I totally dig the name of the album. For some reason this song reminds me of how much I can’t stand President Bush.
  4. Denis. Blondie. The Platinum Collection.
    The Platinum Collection
    For some reason the only time I ever listen to anything from this album is when I’ve done and FR10. It’s not that I don’t like Blondie, tho.
  5. Down by the river to pray. From the “O Brother Where Art Thou” Soundtrack.
    O Brother, Where Art Thou?
    “O Brother where art thou” is one of my most favorite movies ever. I LOVE it. And I love the soundtrack.
  6. Tusk. Fleetwood Mac. The Dance.
    The Dance
    Wow. Strange. Must be on some kind of Fleetwood Mac vibe here (since Landslide is originally a Fleetwood Mac song). This was one of my favorite songs when I was but a wee child when it was popular way back in the 70’s (or early 80s?).
  7. Planet of Sound. Pixies. Trompe Le Monde.
    Trompe le Monde
    I practically worship The Pixies.
  8. Sometimes you gotta Make it alone. Money Mark. Napoleon Dynamite Soundtrack.
    Napoleon Dynamite
    I thought I would like this soundtrack more. I don’t like it much. Take this song, for instance. It kinda sucks. Loved the movie, tho.
  9. Take me to the river. Annie Lenox. Medusa.
    On the other hand, this song is great. I was really into this album when it first came out. And it’s still good, like, 11 years better. good god. has it been 11 years since this came out?!?
  10. Reminiscing. Little River Band. Billboard top hits 1978.
    Billboard Top Hits: 1978
    Um. Yeah. okay. This is one of those songs that pops up and you just have to laugh and say to yourself, “This is the shit that was popular in the 70s?”. In fact, there is a little story about this sort of thing right here.

Giant Origami!


pink crane

Okay. First of all, I am not a big Origami person. I have never had a big interest in it ever. But I decided that I wanted to do Origami programs at the library this fall. One each month for September, October, and November. The kids here love Origami and I thought it would be a fun thing to do. Regardless of the fact that I really don’t know what I’m doing.

So, with that in mind..Look what I made! A giant Origami crane! One of my co-workers and I made three giant cranes with big pieces of butcher paper and attached them to the wall to advertise for my upcoming program. Cool, eh?
