Saturday Random Ten under some duress

Greetings. Blogging has been light of late. Mainly because of a couple of things distracting in a not-too-fun way. One is a clog in the bathtub that's happened to be so insoluble that I might just turn it over to the professionals. God, the plumbing in this place sucks. Also my mailbox is jammed and I can't open it which gets worse with every item the carrier crammed in. I talked to the carrier unit and told them about it and they said they'd have someone unlock it and take the mail out. Then, no one did. So I have to beat on them a little more.

And just when I was maybe starting to feel sorry for myself, along comes the magic of Guy Debord's Muppets to show me... Well, "hope" seems like the wrong word.

1. Beastie Boys - All Lifestyles
2. Sarah Vaughan - You Hit the Spot
3. New Pornographers - Dancehall Domine
4. Dave Van Ronk - House Carpenter
5. Broadcast - I Found the F
6. R.E.M. - Good Advices
7. St. Vincent - Birth in Reverse
8. Heidi Bruhl - Mister Love
9. Camper Van Beethoven - Someday Our Love Will Sell Us Out
10. Lou Rawls - Love is a Hurtin' Thing

There's nothing much worse than having water up to your knees when showering. I'd call in the professionals.

As for mail, it sounds like once they do unlock the box it might be wise to collect it a bit more often. One never knows what might arrive or when. :)

I liked the muppets with comments pictures, but then again I've always been a sucker for Kermit and Fozzie.

Cool SR10 this week. Beastie Boys and Sarah Vaughn are a great start-off combination.

Yeah, the whole stepping into cold water to take a hot shower thing gets old pretty fast.

Once they'd gotten the mailbox open I tightened a nut. Now it unlocks much more easily. And yes, I am collecting more often now.

The wisdom of Kermit and Fozzie is indeed wise. :)

You're not wrong on that last part.
