3. messer chups - satan jeans

That's all I have time for. See you next week suckers.

Thoughts on this Tuesday, feels like Monday.

Things I'd like to cover tonight.

Comment spam on this blog! Should I be flattered? No. I shouldn't. But I might be anyway.

Job hunting. It is perhaps the most tiresome, depressing, stupid and debasing thing I have ever been involved in. "Oh, but I can type! Please let me scrape gum off the underside of your desk, lady-in-a-suit!" On the upside, a cunning plan may allow me to work half as much for the same pay as I'm currently getting. It's called temp work, and I find it extremely seductive.

Pink things raising money for breast cancer awareness, and why we're all whores for buying them. No! I will not wear another ribbon! No, dammit! And it's not just the ribbon. It's everywhere. I object. I smell a marketing ploy, and it's not exactly sea-breeze fresh.

I'm probably about to do something very embarrassing on my way out the door on my bike, so maybe we'll talk about that too. It never gets old.

And then, obviously, Jonelle will have her usual bevvy of bizarre trivia to bring up. See you at seven!

We're the cream.


1. Harvey Danger - little by little... - Cream and Bastards Rise

Comments: I like it quite alot. I'd like to add my own 'doo-wop' lines to it. Jonelle likes it too.

2. Rasputina - a radical recital - Rats

Comments: It's live, which I always enjoy. There's a Zeppelin cover and a Heart cover on this album, which is awesome. I like it. Girls with cellos.

Update - Sunday, October 16th: Since playing this song, I've heard through the grapevine that I'm a loser because I like Rasputina. I think that's a bit harsh. At SWB, we don't judge, we just play at random and hope for the best. Can you blame us for trying to derive enjoyment out of the result, whatever it is? Besides, I always think that if you're devoting energy to cutting people down because of their poor musical taste (as in "aw man, the Eagles? Please be kidding."), you're clearly bitter because you wish you were a star, or possibly a rock journalist. I know, because I'm the same way. I'm just saying, please, try to restrain yourselves. And by all means, if you have better ideas, pass them along. We'll probably ignore them because we're radio snobs and we're lazy, but you might as well try.
I'm the devil.

3. Dirty Tricks - demerits - vaccination

Comments: This song hurts me a bit. It's like strong burning coffee that gives me an ulcer. I'm not in love with it, in other words.

Topics covered: Amateur surgery - did you know that alcohol thins the blood? It's true!
Planned halloween costumes include Antonio and Melanie. I'm getting the flu shot, and Jonelle isn't. When I get hit by a bus, it'll all come out even.

Jonelle the Popmaster

Playlist fer today:

1. Nob Dylan and the Nobsoletes - Positively 12 Stiff Dylans - Tombstone Blues

Comments: dylan covers done loud and low-fi. I actually wrote 'low-fu' there at first, which is my new martial art. The art of low-fu. Jonelle likes this, and so do I. We might revisit this again later. It's just that good.

2. Corduroy Kid - The Sleep Project - Time Lost (we think)

Comments: Jabba the Hutt's digestive system records an album. And here we are in his clicky bowel!

3. Prince Paul - Instrumental - My Friend the Popmaster

Comments: Wow, the swearing! I thought this was instrumental! Anyway, I kind of love it. Jonelle is the popmaster. There's some culturally insensitive stuff in here. Mockery of the Italian people. But it's frickin' funny. Oh crap, stop swearing.

4. Snatches of Pink - Stag - Tooth

Comments: STP with more leather vests. Hmm. I'm not a fan. I'd recommend not buying this album. What do you think Jonelle? She's thinking the same thing. It's like we're musical twins.

Topics covered: Thanksgiving is lonely for vegetarians. And Jonelle doesn't even like squash! Television that sucks your life away: I watched a live police chase today. And sometimes I watch Entertainment Tonight. They have alot in common. We do some community announcements. We talk about the part of 'Reality Bites' where Janeane Garrrroflolo says 'pflag'. It's the only part of the movie I like.
