I don't know about all of you all, but I have at least one song, often several, running in my head at all times. It can be incredibly soothing, and sometimes massively aggravating to the point where I can't sleep due to some fragment of a song screaming loudly in my head on repeat. When it's a song that you don't even like or necessarily know very well, it is even worse. NPR dubbed them "earbugs," I think because smart white people don't like to admit they listen to Pop. Last night, David's earbugs that he transferred to me included "Like a Prayer" and "Rapper's Delight."

Currently in my head: ...well crap, I started typing "Like a Prayer" and now it's back.

Aaaaaand...what song is in your head....RIGHT NOW?


"Like a god damned muther farking prayer" I loaned my iPod-like device to Charles Skelton for his massive funness into the Outback-And-To-The-Left. He put on his crazy techno babble jungle music. When I got it back, it had all the tunes still on it including a cover of "Like a god damned muther farking prayer" by Madonna. I was the idiot that listened to it. Can't remember who it was. Skinny Puppy or Revolting Cocks. Somethingn like that. Bastard.

Also, the incomprehensibly bizarre line from Rapper's Delight:

to the beat that it makes you freak
and come alive girl get on your feet
a like a perry mason without a case
like farrah fawcett without her face

Well, now it's LIKE A PRAYER, thank you VERY much...
But before that I think it was "Birdhouse in Your Soul" or "Too Hot to Handle"

You guys headed to NM for Christmas? So are me and Jess. Shall we try and hook up? Song in my head: "Ring of Fire" and I don't know why. But I went down, down down...

"I wanna rock right now, I'm Rob Base and I came to get down.

I'm not internationally known, but I'm known to rock the microphone, cuz I get stupid, I mean outrageous, stay away from me, if you're contagious, cuz I'm a winner, no no not a loser, to be an MC, is what I choos-uh.

Ladies love me girls adore me, even the ones who never saw me like the way that I rhyme at a show. The reason why? Well I don't know, so let's go cuz-

It takes two to make a thing go right. It takes two to make it outta sight."

Yes, that and Rapper's delight are always playing somewhere in my mind.

And I love it.

Thanks for adding to my pain.

Right now your holla-day holiday CD is in my head. And I like it. Thanks so much!

They might be giants, but what're we gonna do unless they are?

Randy Travis singing "Jingle Bell Rock", which is odd because I dislike popular country music and dispise the over commercialization of "The Holidays".... but still, he and his band sounded like they had a blast recording this version of the song....

Listen, Don. Either shape up or ship out. I'm all into using bygone expresions these days. Like "swell" and "so's your old man."

trouble. trouble. trouble. trouble.

I'm sorry. I'll just be over here with my Bevo, Cubebs, and Taylor Mades...

Which now sound like band names. . .
