Off the fritz Friday Random Ten

Whoo boy. Well, this may be the ultimate in short posting weeks. For a few days I was just too preoccupied to post anything. Then last night I was going to do something, and pretty much the exact moment I tried going to Blogger, I lost internet connectivity. It seems to have been a regional thing, related to the heat, which by the way has been and is horrendous. In conclusion I may try rescuing some near-forgotten post in the next couple of days. Await with baited breath.

1. Pink Martini--Ohio Ohayoo
2. They Might Be Giants--Alienation's For the Rich
3. Talking Heads--The Good Thing
4. The Beatles--You Won't See Me
5. Shannon Stephens--In the Summer In Mthe Heat
6. Fol Chen--Please, John, You're Killing Me
7. Simon & Garfunkel--Overs
8. Fiona Apple--Tymps (The Sick in the Head Song)
9. Roxy Music--Prairie Rose
10. Nancy Wilson--If It's the Last Thing I Do

Everything is ticketty-poo around here except it's a place where 80 can be hot - east coast humidity is only defeated by the ocean's evening breeze. It's weird but true to think power usage is higher in summer than winter. I hope it cools down for you soon.

Did you know TMBG has a new album made for grown-ups? Here's my favorite video of a very cool song.

It feels a little better now. We had some rain last night and today. Hopefully that means that I won't feel like I've brought the sheets into the bathtub when I go to sleep tonight.

That guy did a great animation job on the video. I love the song, too. Once you look past the bouncy music, the bitterness (Not theirs, I hope) really shows through.
