eligible for parole come Valentine's Day

I will say this for Facebook.

When the day has gotten away from you and you never did write the blog post you meant to write, but it happens to be Friday and you happen to have posted a Friday Random Ten playlist on Facebook, there is nothing to stop you from lifting it and reposting it as a bona-fide blog post.

Observe.

Too Damn Holy for Friday Random Ten:
1. Bittersweet Me - REM
2. Oh - Underworld
3. Levi Stubb's Tears - Billy Bragg
4. No One Does It - Department of Eagles
5. Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minneapolis - Neko Case
6. Trainspotting - Primal Scream
7. Comment (If All Men Are Truly Brothers) - Wilco
8. I am the Resurrection - the Stone Roses
9. Fashion Coat - the National
10. Sister Margaret - the Acorn

What's been moving your money maker this Friday?

Ha! I love that photo.

I need to put some music on my new computer so I can participate in the random Fridays again. I only have Bowie, Costello and Pavement on here at the moment. Not very random. ;)

I love, love, love Neko Case's cover.

I've been waiting for years to use that picture, Al.
Do you really have to load all your music onto your new computer? Oi vey. I guess if you are completely changing modalities like that you can't simply ghost files over.

And you sent me that song, John! Do you remember? I love it too, perhaps more than the original.

Oh, I do stuff like this all the time, as you know. Those "Random Stuff from My Hard Drive" posts? Yeah. I don't have to think too much on Wednesdays!

If you're going to cover a song, and you can start with one as good as Mr. Waits' Postcard from a Hooker in Minneapolis, it's hard to go wrong!

It's the least the internet can do for us, WC, after all the love we lavish on it.

I cannot argue with you on that point, Mr Anchovy. It's a great song!

Love that pic!
I'm not familiar with any of your picks, but I admire your taste, so will try to find them.
I have been listening to Diana Krall lately...
Berni

Diana with her hubby or on her own, Berni?
The RO and the SU both say hi, we are vegging in front of the Olympic tube.
