dear sons and daughters of hungry ghosts

“Cold Dark World” by Weezer was the first song to play on my itunes this morning. I really like that song. Its kind of weirdly comforting.

I got new glasses yesterday, and although pretty, the lenses are proving hard to get used to. I see headaches in my future.

My goal for the weekend is to pack. My packing strategy? Pack only things I can see. I figure if I can’t see it easily in my room, then chances are I haven’t used it in 6 months, so I won’t use it in the next 6.

I need to create a playlist to pack to, as finally I have the house to myself so I can crank up the tunes. Hooray!

Best songs to play loud to celebrate the weekend?

    Songs to play when you’re alone and can crank it and sing at the top of your voice and dance about and no one will make fun of you for doing so…

    Elvis Costello – Pump it Up
    R.E.M. – Begin the Begin
    Sebadoh – Beauty of the Ride
    Oasis – Supersonic
    Primal Scream – Rocks Off
    Dandy Warhols – Bohemian Like You
    Eels – Souljacker Pt 1
    Ultra 396 – Whoomp It’s mOBSCENE

    Just a quickie list of the top of mine….

  2. Good listing! I love the Dandy Warhols, and rarely get a chance to turn the volume up loud. Have never heard of Ultra 396…shall have to YouTube it!

    ultra 396 is a mash artist, so no youtube I’m afraid… It’s a mash up of Whoomp Here It Is and a Marilyn Manson song…

  4. Pump it up! Nothing says let’s pack and blow this joint like headbanging whilst filling your Samsonite.

    I’m the Man – Joe Jackson
    Hello Time Bomb – Matt Good
    Bastards of Young – the Replacements
    Movin on Up – Primal Scream
    Bleeding Heart Show – New Pornos
    Watermark – the Weakerthans

    That’s all I can think of right now. Obviously I am lost without my laptop.

    “I don’t wanna work, I just want to bang on the drums all day” I have no idea who it is by, but it is on my JOCK ROCK CD from 1995

  6. Fearless: Ah well. Sounds like an interesting tune.

    Barb: Great list! Bastards of Young is a great tune. I was listening to it loudly the other day.

    Still without the laptop. Cruel punishment. I hope things get sorted soon.

    Eve: “Jock Rock”, eh. Gotta love those 90s compilations that get the feet a tapping!

  7. Be prepared to make fun of me.

    Loverboy’s “Everybody’s Workin’ For The Weekend.”

    Allow me to explain.

    Back in my university days, summers meant I was home and away from my girlfriend (now wife) who lived 3 1/2 hours away. On the occasional Friday after work, my parents were kind enough to lend me their car to go spend the weekend with her. Said car had only a radio, and said radio in Newfoundland meant the sole top 40 station. Every Friday at five it was their tradition to play the aforementioned Loverboy song and I always found myself on the road, on the way to see my gal, at that time. So it brings back fond memories. An awww moment brought to you by the band in the red leather pants.

  8. Awwwww. That is a great story, John. And now I have that song stuck in my head. ;) No making fun, we all have songs like that tied to memories, and its the memory more than the song, right. :)

  9. Packing, you must be getting good at that now.

  10. I think I’ve got it down to an art, and why I’m so lackadaisical about the approach now.
