Warning: mutant hillbillies, next 35 miles.

And on a related note, I will be making a lightning trip to L.A. this weekend. I'm hoping to get there late tonight; I'll try not to stop at the Wrong Gas Station. (There are a few of those near I-5; I had to stop at one once with a nearly empty tank.) While on the road I will be unable to delete the comment spam that has been annoying me the last few days, so try to ignore it. (It's mostly on posts from a week ago anyway.)

Instead of a Friday Random Ten, here's my playlist for the road:

  • Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Show Your Bones
  • Yo La Tengo, I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One
  • Liars, Drum's Not Dead
  • Lilys, Everything Wrong Is Imaginary
  • Built To Spill, Perfect From Now On
  • Mercury Rev, Deserter's Songs
  • Pixies, Bossanova
  • Ladytron, Witching Hour
  • Belle & Sebastian, The Life Pursuit
  • My Bloody Valentine, Loveless

These are CDs that are actually in the car; I'll also have my iPod so I really have more options than just this list.

Could be worse, I mean, you could be taking the 99.

Good point.

Thus inspired, here's a random 10 from me (courtesy of iTunes):

1. All Neon Like (Bjork)

2. Fur Elise (techno remix), originally by Beethoven (remixed by who knows)

3. Blue Gene Vincent (Gary Myrick & Havana 3am)

4. The Ocean (Dar Williams)

5. The Longships (Enya)

6. Butterfly Collector (Garbage)

7. Fing of Fire (Johnny Cash)

8. Rock Steady (Whispers)

9. Nie Mehr Schule (Falco)

10. Just Another Day (Oingo Boingo)

This, by the way, is one of my favorite Boingo Songs. (It's #2 or #3 on the list. It keeps flip-flopping with "Gratitude".)


So, Gazebo, what are the plans for this weekend? maybe Black Angus on Saturday night?

Oh, I forgot about Josh's birthday bash. Is anybody from Pasadena driving down and can give me a ride?

I believe both MikeMike and Tim are driving, L and I are riding with one of them. :)

Mike^2 is driving, I am not. I don't plan on being able to drive home (or, more accurately, I'm plannong on not being able to drive home), so I'm planning on not driving out myself out there either.
