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:
Striptease – Hawksley Workman
Hold My Life – The 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 Young – The Replacements
Miracle Drug – AC Newman
Lazy Line Painter Jane – Belle and Sebastian
Devil’s Eyes – Buck 65
Tripoli – Matthew Good Band
The Bleeding Heart Show – The New Pornographers
I Wanna Be Sedated – The Ramones
Kamera – Wilco
Burnout – Green Day
Science Fiction/Double Feature – Richard O’Brien
Tarantulove – Hawksley Workman
Kiss Off – The Violent Femmes
A Long Way Down – Matthew Good
Sing Me Spanish Techno – The New Pornographers
Sweet Hallelujah – Hawksley Workman
Leash – The 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:
- 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.
- 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.
