Okay, first of all, I weighed myself this morning & magically weighed 3 lbs less than yesterday, so I'm not as fat as I thought. Because you know, those 3 lbs make all the difference. Anyway, I still need to get in better shape, but I do feel a little bit better about it all today...
While driving to work this morning, I saw a pretty funny bumper sticker on the back of white work van. It said:
Get Your Shift Together
The Transmission Shop
It made me laugh. Also on the way to work this morning, I set my iPod to "Recently Added" & laughed a little bit at myself for the ridiculous myriad of songs I've downloaded recently. A sampling:
"Go On, Say It" by Blind Pilot
-- This song is this week's free download on iTunes. It's not bad, very Deathcab for Cutie-esque. I think iTunes compared them to Deathcab & The Shins. It's not bad. It's free. Whatever.
"Pounding" by Doves
-- I'm kind of really into the Doves. They fall into the ever-growing category of music I never would have heard if I hadn't met John. I don't know anything about them. British? American? I have no idea. I heard "Pounding" on KEXP & low & behold, John had the CD, so I put it in my iTunes. It's an incredible song.
"Mercy" by Duffy
-- I have no idea why I bought this song. I saw her on Conan & thought she was cute. Disclaimer: I don't listen to the radio, so songs that most of you are sick of, I haven't heard.
"Freedom" by George Michael
-- I've always loved this song (and video). I heard it somewhere recently & added it to my list of songs to download. I love it. All 6 minutes & 30 seconds of it.
"Wrestlers (Sticky Dirty Pop Mix)" by Hot Chip
-- Heard this one on my new favorite show, So You Think You Can Dance. I think "Twitchington" danced to it last week. Not sure, but it's a really cool song. I like Hot Chip.
"Cobrastyle" by Robyn
-- This song is also from So You Think You Can Dance. I downloaded it expecting John to make fun of me, but apparently he's got a soft spot in his cold, nothing-produced-after-1960 heart & actually likes Robyn. Who knew? Anyway, the song is in my "Work It Out" playlist that I made for the rare occasion that I actually do work-out.
"Dreaming With a Broken Heart" by John Mayer
-- Okay, first of all, shutup. I know by posting this I'm losing serious street cred, but I don't care. This song is hot. Previously mentioned dancing duo, Twitchington, did an incredible contemporary dance routine choreographed by Mia Michaels to this song last week. I couldn't get the song out of my head, so I bought it. Get over it. I've taken the liberty to attach the YouTube clip of said dance routine. Watch it. Cry. Buy the song like I did.
I should have prefaced this list with a disclaimer... I've been watching the shit out of So You Think You Can Dance. It's my new favorite show. No one outside of my family watches it, so I'm catching a little flack from my friends, but I don't care. It's the best show on TV right now & I love it. You bitches watch, it'll be all the rage next summer. I'm just ahead of the trend.
P.S. For anyone who doesn't believe (like I do) that I'm psychic, "Pounding" just came on KEXP.
And now, Twitchington. Enjoy, bitches.
