Check out what I'm listening to. Go ahead, I'll wait.

One of the verses goes:
Earthquakes and sharks to start us off,
If Chupacabras ain't enough,
Black widow spiders and killer bees,
There ain't no shade, there ain't no trees.
Hot desert heat, polluted air,
And traffic jams beyond compare.
That's all I got to warn ya 'bout Mexico and California.

If I still listened to the radio, I'd want to dedicate this song to [livejournal.com profile] katiem00 and [livejournal.com profile] lysaer. Why? It's about California, the DEATH STATE. I mean we've had killer bees, earthquakes, fires, riots and we are the heart of the Gay Agenda. If California doesn't kill you, it's going to gay you up and have buttsecks with you--assuming we don't sink into the ocean first.

California = one big state of DEATH.

This may be one of the greatest videos of all time.

Peelander-Z's "S.T.E.A.K."

So I am currently listening to the 30-second previews iTunes is offering on the Kidz Bop albums. The horror cannot be described.

I thought the songs were being redone to be more kid-friendly (e.g., Junior can listen to Britney Spears without learning cuss words or questionable content) but it's just children singing current Top 40 songs badly. Children singing "Toxic" and "The First Cut is the Deepest" is just really, really odd and wrong. Listening to the Kids Bop cover of Clay Aiken's "Invisible" just brings up images of Children of the Corn.

I've come to the realization that I only like hip-hop when it's in a language I don't understand, like the Japanese group, SOUL'D OUT (seriously, that's how they spell it), and the French hip-hop that's played in the background of the Sex and the City series finale.

Not counting soundtracks (because I buy a lot of those), the last CD I bought was Norah Jones' "Come Away With Me." I bought that CD long after she won her Grammys but I already borrowed and liked her CD at that point.

Because of freeipods.com, I joined the BMG Music Club to get that "seven CDs for the price of one" deal.
So here's what I have received in the mail and what I will receive (not counting soundtracks):

  • Ben Folds Five, "The Unauthorized Biography Of Reinhold Messner" (still in the mail)

  • Blur, "The Best Of Blur" (still in the mail)

  • Blur, "Modern Life Is Rubbish" (still in the mail)

  • Dido, "No Angel" (still in the mail)

  • Drive-By Truckers, "Decoration Day" (for the boyfriend AND still in the mail)

  • Electric Light Orchestra, "The Essential Electric Light Orchestra" (haven't listened to it yet)

  • Franz Ferdinand, "Franz Ferdinand" (I've listened to half of it and I like it so far)

  • The Jesus and Mary Chain, "21 Singles" (haven't listened to it yet)

  • Johnny Cash, "At Folsom Prison (Remastered)" (for the boyfriend AND still in the mail)

  • Modest Mouse, "Good News for People Who Love Bad News" (there are a couple of good songs but I mostly feel meh towards it)

  • Stereolab, "Margerine Eclipse" (haven't listened to it yet)

I also picked up The Von Bondies' "Pawn Shoppe Heart" and Maria Mena's "White Turns Blue" somewhere else since BMG's site didn't carry those. They also didn't carry Bis or Apples in Stereo which was kind of irksome.

So hopefully I'll have caught up on modern music.
I picked up a couple of suggestions from John Allison's (of Scary Go Round fame) Albums of the Year list, but if any of you guys have any suggestions, send them along. I have to listen to something besides 80s pop and TV/movie/game soundtracks.

Mozart's "Dies Irae" is a pretty popular piece.
It was on my winamp playlist and I couldn't remember why I had downloaded it.
I googled it to see if had been used in any tv shows or movies, and the first three things to pop up were The Battle Royale trailer, the X-Files episode "Biogenesis" (when Scully sees the ship) and when Nightcrawler is in the White House in X2.
The sad thing is I could have downloaded it for any of those three reasons.

I now have the Bob Dylan CD that was made for Victoria's Secret.
I don't know how I feel about that.

I can't get this song out of my head.
And when Ben Folds decided to take a break, he apparently asks the boys of Lords of the Rhymes to chant "there ain't no party like a hobbit party, 'cause a hobbit party don't stop!" until he feels like playing again.

From Simon & Garfunkel's "A Simple Desultory Philippic (Or How I Was Robert McNamara'd Into Submission)":

I knew a man, his brain so small
He couldn't think of nothing at all
He's not the same as you and me
He doesn't dig poetry. He's so unhip that
When you say Dylan, he thinks you're talking about Dylan Thomas
(Whoever he was)
The man ain't got no culture

The English major in me just loves this stanza.

More Ewans to love: an animated Ewan is simply adorable. Just click on the "Kissing a Fool" video link.

Hunter Thompson "missed the panel because he was having back problems that developed during activities in the marital honeymoon bed."
And this is my honey bunny's hero?!

When I was browsing News Askew for a really old picture of Jason Lee (back when he was a pro skater) they had posted awhile back, I came across a link to the All Girl Summer Fun Band web site where they wrote a song about Jason Lee. It's no "David Duchovny, why won't you love me?" but it's cute.

And apparently I have lost all my Asian street cred because I like to put ketchup on fried rice. Yeah, I'm looking for a shirt with a twinkie on it.

Being behind the times musically, I finally saw the video of the Johnny Cash's cover of "Hurt."
Trent Reznor has nothing on this man. Cash emotes more angst in this video than Trent has ever in his entire career.
And [livejournal.com profile] jacklemmon's right: Cash with white hair is not right because god damn it, he ain't that old yet. Of course, the hair helps the angst immensely.
In other news, I've been on this bad college movie kick. Jon and I rented Van Wilder and American Pie 2 (at my insistence) recently. I'm sure a viewing of Deadman on Campus is coming. Tonight we saw Old School.
I'm rationalizing wanting to see Old School for Luke Wilson (kind of like me supporting Alyson Hannigan's forays onto film during/post-Buffy instead of just admitting I want to see a bad in that good way teen film).
Seriously, there wasn't that much bare Will Ferrell ass but I don't believe I could take any more if they had sneaked in one last clip. This would have been a fun movie for a matinee but not for the full-price tickets we paid. There's was certainly more antics than Luke Wilson ogling, but that's what was expected anyway.
Jon still hasn't found a logical reason for wanting to see it; I just tell him some baser part of his psyche was being called.
