Edited Friday Random Ten

It's probably a good thing that this blog doesn't reflect all the false starts, the things I thought I was going to write about but for one reason or another abandoned.  It would just make things impossible to manage.  If/when the internet turns telepathic, there's gonna be some dull stuff.

1. Yo La Tengo - Black Flowers
2. Gogol Bordello - Sally
3. Dinah Washington - My Ideal
4. R.E.M. - Shaking Through
5. Roxy Music - Still Falls the Rain
6. Nellie McKay - Yodel
7. Amy Winehouse - You Sent Me Flying
8. Ladytron - All the Way*
9. Imperial Teen - Last to Know
10. Morphine - All Wrong

If I stop doing the FR10, there's another music-based feature I've thought about doing, and this is a prime candidate.  As well as an amazing song.

My bookmark links are often filled to the brim with subjects I thought I'd write posts about. Every so often I'll go through the list muttering 'what was I thinking?'

It's a cool FR10 this week - Gogol Bordello sugueing into a fine old Dinah Washington song followed by REM looks pretty entertaining to me. I can understand if you're weary of keeping a list, though, and whatever you post instead you know I'll be interested.

Sometimes the time limit passes on a prospective blog post. Sometimes I decide a subject is being covered well enough elsewhere. And yeah, sometimes I just forget what I was going to say.

I do still somewhat enjoy compiling the list. On the other hand, it could get to be time for a change. We'll see. I appreciate your continued interest.
