Is it friday already? I’ve got my glass of wine in hand. Let’s do this.

  1. Forever Yellow Skies. The Cranberries. To the faithful departed.
    To the Faithful Departed
    Why am I slightly embarrased that I have The Cranberries on my iPod? I do actually like them. I haven’t heard this song in awhile.
  2. Story of a lonely guy. Blink-182. Take off your pants and jacket.
    Take off Your Pants and Jacket
    I really like Blink-182. I don’t know why. It’s adolecent music. But I can’t help it.
  3. Smells Like Teen Spirit. Nirvana. Nevermind.
    Nevermind
    May Kurt Cobain be resting in peace.
  4. Stand. Blues Traveler. Four.

    Never really a huge fan of Blues Traveler. I don’t think I’ve ever listened to this album the whole way through.
  5. I don’t know you. Annie Ross and the low note quintet. Short Cuts Soundtrack.
    Short Cuts
    Have you seen the movie, Short Cuts? It’s one of my favorite movies. Directed by Robert Altman. R.I.P. Mr. Altman.

    Songs in the Key of W
    Thank you George W. Bush Singers! I needed a good chuckle.
  7. Two Swords. The English Beat. I just can’t stop it.
    I Just Can\'t Stop It
    Why do I always get some English Beat song when I do one of these FR10s? I only have this one album from them. My iPod must like them
  8. Constant Sorrow. Soggy Bottom Boys. O Brother where art thou.
    O Brother, Where Art Thou?
    Another one of my favorite movies.

Thanks for all of your comments on the “WTF” post. A few days later I’m feeling less shock and more depressed. Hopefully this cloud will lift soon.

So why am I so bothered by the James Kim death? I think it’s because I feel like it could have happened to me. It seems so random. A family takes what they think looks like a shortcut on a map because they missed thier exit. How many times has that happened to you or me? It happened to my husband and I last summer in Oregon, in fact. We were driving to the coast. The road we ended up on was an obscure road that wound through the Oregon mountains. It was a gorgeous drive last summer and we didn’t feel the slightest bit afraid that we would get lost. But that road in the winter would probably be impassable.

I just keep thinking about what the family must have been going through in the car the 9 days they were stuck there. And then to make the decision for James to go get help. He was very heroic to make that decision. He must have known the risks. He left the car in street clothes. He probably didn’t make it through the night. And then the fact that he was found a half a mile from his car. And I also found out that he was very close to a fishing lodge, too. It’s just tragic. And I feel bad about it.
