Friday Random Ten Sales Resistance Edition

Tonight I was in the coffee shop at Borders. The guy at the table next to me had a meeting. It turned out to be a pitch for Amway or something like that. Without making a deal about it I switched tables. It was apparent we were working at cross purposes.

Anyway, music without any further ado.

1. Talking Heads--Life During Wartime
2. Ladytron--Evil
3. The Squirrel Nut Zippers--It Ain't You
4. David Bowie--Aladdin Sane
5. Elvis Costello & the Imposters w/ Lucinda Williams--There's a Story in Your Voice
6. Grizzly Bear--Cheerleader
7. Todd Rundgren--Black Maria
8. The Who--I Need You*
9. Burning Airlines--The Deluxe War Baby
10. Joni Mitchell--Don't Interrupt the Sorrow

Keith sings!

I'd thought Amway was extinct. You made a wise move.

Whether this was the actual Amway, it was some kind of free-floating talk about a bunch of miracle products.

I actually did sit through a pitch from the real thing once. It was in college. I wasn't the target, so to speak, but a guy I knew was listening to the spiel and a couple of us others went along. It was all about the glory of selling products in your everyday life. We got out just before I was driven to hurt myself or someone else.
