Friday Random 10 – mostly punk edition

Books, Music, Art, Movies

Let’s get it started, shall we? I’m using my iPod today. There are more weird, random songs that pop up that I haven’t heard before.

1. The Shadow of Seattle. Marcy Playground.
I have this album but have never heard the whole thing. Now, at least, I’ve heard this song. It’s not terrible.

2. The Cave. Mumford and Sons.
Oh god I love this song but it makes me cry. Also, whenever I hear these guys it makes me want to learn how to play my banjo already!

3. I am a Rock. Simon and Garfunkle.
Good song. A little cynical, but good song.

4. I Am Always Touched By Your Presence, Dear. Blondie.

5. Anarchy in the U.K. Sex Pistols.
Yeah! good old-school punk.

6. Mantovi. The Swinging Cats.
And old-school ska.

7. People Got a Lot of Nerve. Neko Case.
GREAT song. Even though it reminds me of winter in Spokane.

8. Fairytale in the Supermarket. The Raincoats.
Yeah for old-school punk!

9. Where Eagles Dare. Misfits
My iPod likes punk today. Awesome!!!

10. American Idiot. Green Day
Well o.k. then. Let’s end it with that.

Photography Friday


Here is a photo I took this morning with my iPod. I took it using the True HDR app, which I recently downloaded. I haven’t had a chance to use it much but will play around with it this weekend if I can get outside.

I have to say, I’m having lots of fun taking photos with my ipod. The camera in it is crap, and that bugs me sometimes. But the applications for it are awesome. I’m probably going to buy an iPhone pretty soon now that they switched to Verizon. I kind of only want to get an iPhone because of the better camera. is that bad?

I realized that today is the three year anniversary of getting hit by a car. This is the kind of thing that I really don’t want to celebrate the anniversary of and the only reason why I am thinking about it is because I injured my back two weeks ago by slipping on a (very hard) rock while hiking. Just slipped right on it and landed flat on my back. I twisted my wrist trying to catch myself. I was o.k. when it happened and felt fine the next day, as well. But when I was sitting in a class last week my back started aching. And it kind of hasn’t stopped with varying degrees of pain. So one of those delayed reactions kinds of things, much like when I got hit by that car three years ago.

What’s Going On

Sylvia Plath

Fascinating article about ghostwriting written by Scott Westerfield.

I don’t know why, but I thought this was amusing. Come to think of it, I don’t really know why I care.

This is an interesting website about an early photo of Lincoln.

You have got to be kidding me.

This is interesting.. I still need to try the Kindle Ap for my iPod. Better do it sooner rather than later.  And why didn’t they target Amazon instead, as the writer asks?


Yikes. I hope my sister is O.K. She lives in Fairbanks.

I giggled when I read this post at Wow. You really need to peruse the Flylady‘s site. I’ve never seen anything like it.  There are no words.

This is really sad news about Nicholas Hughes, son of Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes.
