That's the title of the new workout cd I made today.
I'm pretty happy with it, as I used medium-paced songs that are perfect for running on the eliptical, with lots of hand-claps and such for interest's sake. I didn't want to use anything too hard-paced during this cookie-scarfing season, as I don't feel like taking a heart attack. But I really must do something about the10 pounds that I managed to gain this year (without even trying! yay me), so that I can make room for the new Christmas fat.
Here's the playlist:
If I should fall from grace with god - the Pogues
Death of a tune - the Hidden Cameras
The boy with the arab strap - Belle and Sebastian
Paint it black - the Rolling Stones
La le la la - Kinnie Starr
Hello time bomb - Matthew Good Band
Car jamming - the Clash
This sentence will ruin/save your life - Born Ruffians
Senorita - James
Bones - Radiohead
Let's fall in love and run away from here - Ballboy
Shoulders and arms - Tokyo Police Club
There is power in a union - Billy Bragg
Strummerville - Stiff Little Fingers
Doot doot plot - the Hidden Cameras
Skeleton key - Margot and the Nuclear So and So's
Sons and daughters - the Decemberists
Stay - the Ladies and Gentlemen
Graveyard - Chad VanGaalen
Macarena - Great Aunt Ida
If you are doing 45 minutes of cardio, it actually ends up perfectly with the cardio session ending with Strummerville, which is a fast-paced song, and I don't know about you, but I like to end the cardio part with a push.
If you want me to send you a copy to get you started on purging those Christmas excesses, let me know.
In the meantime, pass the shortbread.
Pitchfork has the story "Colbert cheats to victory over Decemberists!" and they have a link where you can watch the show in its entirety. If you haven't seen it, it's well worth the click.
I heard Cindy Klassen, Olympic medalist in speed skating and cycling, on CBC radio today. She had gone to Africa with cross-country ski Olympic medalist, Sara Renner, to do a doc on a program that allows kids in developing countries the opportunity to play and to be involved in sport. She actually donated her entire savings account to the effort, and hearing her passion and compassion made me want to be a better person.
I had actually asked for a goat for Christmas from Ten Thousand Villages, but if I don't get one, I'm going to go out after Christms and buy one myself. Or maybe a bunch of chickens.
