First, to get the crap out of the way: I hate allergies. I've been taking Zyrtec (generic, purchased from Canada Pharmacy) - two pills a day, which means that I've been taking more than the average dose. But, this is on my doctor's recommendation {that would be my awesome allergist (the Good DoctorTM)} - and I'm still dealing with waking up in the middle of the night with itchy ears and throat; sneezing and the contradiction of a runny/ stuffy nose.

Okay, so it might help if the place gets cleaned up - get rid of the cat hair on the floor, so on and so forth. But, in the meantime ... blah.

Now, for that slice of Happiness Pie: I've been making mix CDs for work, so I can have some decent tunes at the office. One CD is just both of The Hush Sound CDs (Like Vines and So Sudden), and my other has The Bird and The Bee CD, as well as songs by Nellie McKay, Feist, Goldfrapp and Imogen Heap.

Are there any other themes/mixes that I could work up? Do any of you have suggestions? Honestly, I'm not very good at this kind of thing ... so I'm just happy that my new CD of The Bird and The Bee, et al. sounds remotely decent. :-)

Okay, so I admit that I wanted to be "decent" ... or at the very least, not be a snarky C U Next Tuesday about this ... but, for those playing in Dead Pools: Jerry Falwell is dead. Yep, he kicked the bucket, DFO-ed, bought the farm, pushing up daisies ... any other euphemism for death.

You know, if he does go to Heaven, I like to think that he'll get the shock of his life when he's surrounded by those "evil" feminists, lesbians and Pagans. Or, maybe South Park had it right - and he'll just go straight to Hell since he chose the wrong religion!

Anywho ... I was discussing the news with a co-worker, and we talked about what Falwell would hear when he reaches the Pearly Gates. The consensus is: "Sorry, no vacancy! Although, there are some (permanent) holding cells. IN HELL!!" So, dude, don't forget your sunblock, and don't let the gates hit you where the good Lord split ya!

Besides, as my friend [livejournal.com profile] docwebster mentioned, apparently there will be a protest at his funeral. Just not by queer leftists, those godless heathens. Oh no ... even better. It's In-Bred Fred and The Westboro Baptist Cult Church parishoners. Yeah ... just a little odd, isn't it? Guess the Patriot Guard Riders were getting the better of him, what with the rumble of Harley engines drowning out his rants.

Enough of that snark. Onto something that's not being discussed as much in the blogosphere: Hard Rock songs being turned into lullabyes. Led Zepplin; Radiohead; Bob Marley; The Cure ... even Tool (yes, "Sober" has been stripped down to lullabye goodness).

What's especially disturbing to me is: Rock-A-Bye Baby - Metallica. Yeah, this one includes "Enter Sandman" - yes, a song about crib death. (The line "we're off to never never land" was originally supposed to be "disrupt the perfect family")

Yeah, just what I'm going to play for my kid. Fifteen years later, they'll be in therapy going, "every night, I felt like I was going to die. Like my family was wanting me to die..." Not worth it, dudes.

p.s.: Kellie's really good in bed.

I've noticed something while listening to Yahoo! LaunchCast at work - specifically, listening to the "Cover Art" station; which is all cover tunes:

I'm amazed at how many covers there are of Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart". From the mediocre (can't remember) to the horrendous (Paul Young). Come on, we're talking about a song where Ian Curtis sounds like Ben Stein singing at an RNC Karaoke Night. How hard is it to improve upon *that*?

For serious, people ... how about a decent cover of the damn song? Besides the Fall Out Boy cover, mind you.

I know, people have done the "Random 10 Songs" meme into the ground - which is why I'm not doing it.

Instead, I want to know - what songs do you risk deafness over when the come onto your MP3 player/CD player/computer/whatever?

For me, those songs are: What's that? I can't hear you!! )

And for the record, I do get all kinds of shit for my singalongamania ... which is why I try my damndest to not do it, and still end up doing it anyways ... only to end up embarrassed when I'm caught in the act.
