iPod Playlist Tag/Meme/uh ... whathaveyou
Babydog got to walk in the annual St. Paddy's Day parade, today. We entered her in the "fun dog show" before the parade. Can you believe she didn't get "best smile?" Notice she's not smiling as widely in this picture. Methinks it is not because she lost a meaningless title, but rather because Mommy and Daddy won't let her lick the candy off of the fingers of toddlers she does not know.
Sonnjea tagged me with a tag (?) today. It seems we're supposed to share the first 10 songs that come up on random on our iPods. Then tag 5 more people to play or else something bad will happen to Sonnjea's imaginary hampster. (She also has an iMaginary iPod, so those without iPods may use their iMaginations, as well.) Then I think we're supposed to let people comment on our musical taste in the comments section.
My iPod is currently without juice, but it holds my "mellow" playlist which I also have set up on our iTunes library. So, I just stuck it on shuffle and here are the first 10 songs it came up with:
1. New Slang - The Shins
2. The Writing on My Father's Hand - Dead Can Dance
3. Out of a Serpent's Egg - Dead Can Dance ... by the way, if you're gonna goth, go w/ them.
4. Don't Panic - Coldplay
5. Sundress - Ben Kweller
6. Song of the Sibil - Dead Can Dance
7. Happy Holiday Y'all - Robert Earl Keen
8. Bedshaped - Keane
9. Hitchhiker's Smile - Victoria Williams
10. Clap Along Song - Dead Can Dance
Note: I do like Dead Can Dance a lot, but I normally don't listen to more than one album at once. I think I set too wide a filter for this playlist and it populated a disproportionate amount of DCD for me.
Now, I tag the following - assuming they're reading my blog - Churchgal (whom I still owe a response to), VirginiaGal, JoeinVegas, NubianTemptres and ... hmm. Let's try Mommanator.
... as an aside, I've been told that someone commented recently on a post, but because I established comment moderation, it didn't get to me. If this is true, and not someone trying to play off the fact that no comment was left and he/she feels guilty about it, I have since disabled comment moderation. Please be kind - or at least witty with any causticity.
If you remember from my last two moan-fests, I am in a depression. However, I have been feeling very, very good for the last 3 or 4 days. And after a wonderful opening night last night, I feel great. This lucidity is a good thing, and will probably help me work through my nasties better. That said, I apologize for the toadiness of my last few posts. I know reading/hearing someone mope can get annoying.
eNjoy the iPod tag!
