Friday Random Ten with minor confession

Got to work fairly early today, arriving at the office at eight, maybe a couple of minutes before that. Luckily, I did not set off the alarm. That's happened before. There's always a little bit of stigma attached to it, since the street is mostly residential. Oh well, we all have those moments.

1. The New Pornographers--Failsafe
2. Devo--Mongoloid
3. Gnarls Barkley--Blind Mary
4. Bonzo Dog Band--The Bride Stripped Bare by 'Bachelors'
5. Stan Kenton & His Orchestra--Ecuador
6. David Bowie--Breaking Glass
7. The Fiery Furnaces--Keep Me in the Dark
8. The Rolling Stones--Under My Thumb
9. Johnny Mathis--Chances Are
10. Yuka Honda--Liberation #6-Leaving the Memories Behind

The only alarm I'm likely to set off at work is if I don't show up at all.

At Whole Foods today they were playing a selection of songs I remembered from when I was 12 - Runaway, See You in September etc. I never picked up groceries so fast before. Geez, do you think they're hoping to appeal to the 'older' crowd?

"Runaway" is a pretty good song by itself. But I can imagine the kind of medley it was in the middle of, and I don't blame you at all.

There's a Whole Foods fairly near where I live, but I don't go often. This isn't a matter of me boycotting them because of their CEO's right-wing politics--which are, let's face it, common among CEO's. Mainly it's that there's a good independent supermarket nearby, and why not give them a break?

Unfortunately, around here WF bought the competition and closed them because they didn't have enough floor space (!)
