I Totally Ripped Off This Photo From Jen

Matt Good at Sugar in Victoria last night. Isn't he pretty?
Jen says it was a "fan-fucking-tastic" concert.
And nobody hucked anything.

I love making mixed CDs. I haven't made one for forever, but yesterday I couldn't stand it anymore because there were some songs (and song combinations) that I just have to hear all the time. This happens more often than I care to admit. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my new mix. Here it is:

StripteaseHawksley Workman
Hold My LifeThe Replacements
Tank Commander (Hung Up in a Warehouse Town)The Constantines
Pickin’ It Up – Hot Hot Heat
Redemption Song
Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros
Bastards of YoungThe Replacements
Miracle DrugAC Newman
Lazy Line Painter JaneBelle and Sebastian
Devil’s EyesBuck 65
Tripoli – Matthew Good Band
The Bleeding Heart Show
The New Pornographers
I Wanna
Be Sedated – The Ramones
Kamera
Wilco
BurnoutGreen Day
Science Fiction/Double FeatureRichard O’Brien
TarantuloveHawksley Workman
Kiss OffThe Violent Femmes
A Long Way DownMatthew Good
Sing Me
Spanish Techno – The New Pornographers
Sweet Hallelujah
Hawksley Workman
LeashThe Weakerthans

I didn't intend for it to be a work-out CD, because I make a lot of those (if you have to exercise you might as well use it as a justification for blasting music you love), but I actually worked out with it this morning. And it was great, except for two problems:

  1. I absolutely can't not sing along with the chorus of "Lazy Line Painter Jane". However, when the song starts playing at 30 minutes into your workout and you're pedalling like snot at 21 miles/hour, something has to be sacrificed. Sing hard or pedal hard. You can't do both. I sang.
  2. I made the mistake of putting the two sexiest songs in existence on this mix, "Striptease" and "Tarantulove" (both by Hawksley Workman; coincidence? hmmm). They both make me want to take my clothes off. So I came up from the basement all red-faced, sweaty, stinky, and horny.

Oh now that's attractive.

hahaha! Were you naked when you came up the stairs? You never mentioned! hehe I am now going to have to download those songs!

Of course, knowing you, you have gone out and bought the cd's of all the mixed songs anyway right? hehehe It's funny how that happens!

I can't wait for the next Martha weekend to hear the mix girl!!

Ok, being Matt Good unknowledgeable, I thought wasn't great looking? He's hot in the two pictures you have posted????? Am I wrong?

No,Bev, I wasn't neked. That would have just been adding insult to injury (to my family). I do actually have all those cds - except for 2 songs which I stole from Eva.
And yes, Matty is HOT, in a geek chic kinda way...
