Comin' At Ya! Tunes and Trivia



I'm strapped into my study chair and ready for takeoff on my LAST Statistics assignment. Apparently my iTunes wanted to get my day started right with some high octane tunes. Oddly, I slept well for the first time in weeks last night (asleep by 9:30 and slept all night), but I am feeling more tired than ever this morning. I'm convinced sleep is kind of like a drug. The more you get, the more you need. Well, the coffee is brewing and I am gosh darn giddy with excitement about getting this quarter finished off. I think that will get me through the day. Here's the Friday brew from the iTunes:

1.Mirror in the Bathroom-The Specials
2.Birthday-Mission of Burma
3.I Don't Know-Naked Raygun
4.Tell That Girl to Shut Up-Transvision Vamp
5.Bring the Shotgun-The Bomb
6.Town Called Malice-The Jam
7.Blitzkrieg Bop-The Ramones
8.Money-Flying Lizards
9.SXRT-Bloc Party
10.Changes Are No Good-The Stills

New feature at Tenacious S-Friday Fun Fact!
Did you know that the koala is the sleepiest animal on earth? It sleeps an average of 22 hours a day. It wakes up at night to eat one to two pounds of eucalyptus leaves and then passes out again. I don't think the people who researched this fact have met my daughter yet. While we have no hard evidence, we often wake to find empty boxes and containers in cabinets and the fridge. Please view the following photos to compare daytime sleeping habits of both creatures.

My Random Ten was stuck in the sixties. Yours managed to make a pretty nice excursion through the eighties-- English Beat, Mission of Burma, the Jam, Raygun, the Flying Lizards-- very nice.

I slept last night too! Of course that was because I had a special delivery from CP.

I love, LOVE, Mission of Burma. This is my favorite random songlist.

Tenacious S said...

Mission of Burma is God. Well, close to it. Glad you liked it, Grant.

Koala Bears are evil creatures....

Great list...

Tenacious S said...

Echo, is there something you need to tell us?

Dale said...

Yep, you've got koalas!

A Town Called Malice is one of my all time faves.

Tenacious S said...

Dale, A Town Called Malice has the ability to make me drop what ever it is I am holding and dance.

I like your list and your fun fact. And the quilt in that picture.

I had the biggest crush on the lead singer from the Flying Lizards. Well, I had a crush on her voice.

Tenacious S said...

Bubs, my Mom made the quilt and the even more amazing one that is on my son's bed. I like to think that even though she's not here anymore that they are both wrapped in her love each night. Maybe I'll post more about her quilts someday when I feel like I can talk about it.

Bubs said...

Ten, if you can I think you should. I think quilts are amazing and wonderful things, and if you have some that have stories, and were made by someone you love, that's even better.

Awesome picture of the car.
Reminds me a bit of the Blues brothers

My random 15 is usually saturated in power pop.

Come to think of it, I need more Specials on my iPod.
