Lucious Bev Playlist

This Friday Random Playlist is dedicated to the fabulous Bev who is celebrating her birthday today. Bev is the blonde Martha pictured here when the Marthas were going all out fringe festivaling last summer. Right now we are trying to figure out what to do, where to go for this year's Womanly Weekend which, due to the insane social demands upon the Marthas, will be held in October this year.

October in Alberta ... any suggestions for destinations/activities?

To all a good night - Arab Strap
Buggin' - the Flaming Lips
Prickly thorn, but sweetly worn - the White Stripes
Beast for thee - Bonny Prince Billy
So sleep (A) - Junior Boys
Just like honey - the Jesus and Mary Chain
Waking the witch - Kate Bush
Bang and blame - R.E.M.
Eternal life - Jeff Buckley
Upside down - the Jesus and Mary Chain

Have a sweet summer weekend, my preciouses.
Dance a little more, have another drink, and for christ's sake plant that tomato you bought two weeks ago.

I came for the playlist, but stayed for the lucious.

Happy Birthday to Bev! Don't you all look lovely, sounds like you all have a good weekend getaway.

Just reading that random playlist makes me smile! And when I smile I end every sentence with an exclamation point, woot!

Hope your weekend is aces :)

It's always a blast when the Marthas get together, Berni. Much cackling and snorting ensues. Sort of like when we get together.

Lucious is how we keep you imprisoned, Just A.

An exclamation point AND a woot, Al! Must be the weekend! I was pretty pleased with the playlist as well, I must say, some unusual selections but two, count em, two JAMC.

The Marthas do Oktoberfest? Do they do that in Alberta?

What a great looking bunch...happy birthday Bev.

Happy birthday to Bev!

Bubs said...

Wow, two choices from Jesus and Mary Chain!! And White Stripes, AND Kate Bush. Lovely list.

Have fun with the Marthas!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

That's a thought, Deb. I would imagine there will be an Oktoberfest somewhere in the province. It would give us a chance to wear our liederhosen.

I hope the family spoiled her, PF.

And I listened to the JAMC a lot throughout the day too, Bubs. Fortunately Scarlet Johannson did not sing along.

Happy Birthday Bev! What a great photo. I hope you have loads of fun!!!

Karen said...

Considering I just finished Handmaid's Tale, should I be worried Barb that you call yourselves the "Marthas"???? Slightly creepy coincedence...

BeckEye said...

What's the Alberta weather like in October?

Barbara Bruederlin said...

That was sure a fun time fringe festivaling, Mel. Those Marthas are a pretty crazy buncha gals.

Ewww, that IS creepy, Karen, but the reality is much less onerous. When I moved to Alberta, I left behind a group of friends in Ontario who called ourselves the Marges and once I was remarking on the similarities to the current Marthas, and the name just sort of evolved from that. All very innocent - no totalitarian dystopia or anything like that.

I could be anything from solid winter to a late summer, Beckeye. One never knows in this crazy place. Camping is definitely out though, as is white water rafting.

Danny Tagalog said...

Yeah, you can't go wrong with Upside Down:)

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Upside Down is definitely a classic, Danny. Never get tired of hearing that one.

Johnny Yen said...

Nice, nice list! J and M Chain, Jeff Buckley, White Stripes, REM, Kate Bush-- you must have done something very nice for somebody to have deserved such a good list!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Johnny, as a matter of fact, I fed my computer a whole bunch of new cds, and I think that made it happy.

New and Used Records said...

Happy birthday Bev ... and I know that playlist is random, but it is totally killer!

Sometimes it works out pretty sweetly, doesn't it, Will?
