30 day song challenge, day 13

30 day song challenge, day 13
A song that is a guilty pleasure
Don Spencer, Bob the Kelpie

I love this song! :) I also love sheepie dogs.

So it’s been about a month since my last song challenge post, but who’s counting…

General Bloggity

I would love to write up my thoughts on A Dance with Dragons, which I finished on Sunday (thank you very much for holding me hostage for 2 weeks, Mr. Martin), but I’ve become afflicted with pains in my thumb and hand, probably blog-related. Expect little from me for a while. :(

Also, I went ahead and cancelled my cable TV. I’m now at the mercy of Netflix streaming. So between Lost and Hoarders, I should be ok for a while. I’ll be sure to send a raven if I become too out of touch with popculture. D’oh.

A song from a band you hate

I can hate lots of bands, but I especially hate Led Zepplin. Sorry, universe. It’s just the way it has to be. This song is particularly atrocious, but probably not even their worst.

A song from your favorite band
Mr. Bungle, Super Mario Brothers Medley

There’s that word “favorite” again. Ugh. Tough call. I’ll use this, Super Mario theme from Mr. Bungle, live at Club Lingerie in 1991. Mike Patton seems a bit drunk.

A song that makes you fall asleep
Pink Floyd, Comfortably Numb

Anything by Pink Floyd makes me sleepy. That’s not to say I don’t like them – I love them, they’re so awesome – but anything after Syd Barrett left the band just gets me all drowsy.

Peter Dinklage Annotated Timeline

Since I haven’t posted in several many days, and being that I just got A Dance with Dragons with which I’ll be MIA for just as long, I thought a quick mention of the latest chart I put together on the Peter Dinklage Popularity page would suffice for a blog post.

Maybe not; history will be the judge.

I’ve been playing around with Google Docs and spreadsheets and whatnot for a good many years and love the flexibility of it. The execution of doing what you want is still somewhat limited, especially exporting. Anyways, I really love the Annotated Timeline format and thought the best use for it EVER would be to make a Peter Dinklage “Timeline of Tweets” and other social media mentions. So I did, and I can now share it with world, thanks to some Google Gadgets. More info on the Popularity Page, but basically this maps out the twitter, facebook, flicker, photobucket and a ton of other “social” sites that have people talking about Peter Dinklage.

So as I keep tabs on that busy Mr. Dinklage, I can keep you all up to date as well. It’s pretty much the best thing ever on the list of best things ever. Cross your fingers that it keeps working, because I have no idea how to fix it if it blows up.

A song that you can dance to
Smile.dk, Coconut

That is to say, a song you try to dance to, but just end up hopping about, gesticulating like a lunatic.

30 day song challenge, day 08

30 day song challenge, day 08
A song that you know all the words to
Faith No More, Falling to Pieces

I have been unable to memorize the words to any song since 1993. There is one song that I know perfectly: 1990s SNL, Steve Martin’s “Tonight Song”, but it’s not available online and it would take me too long to get the DVD. So here’s more Mikey. I think I know all the words to FNM’s The Real Thing album. Quintessential 90s video in glorious funk-colors.

On Kittens and Sundry

The first monsoon storm of the season hit today, breaking up the 110+ degree heat, at least for the evening.

A couple days ago, a litter of kittens appeared on my porch. Mama Cat had been hanging around the cul-de-sac for the past 3 weeks, so I guess she’s been moving them around. Everyone’s got me pegged for a sucker, so I’ve been making sure she has food, water, and a cool area for her brood to play in. We’re thinking that she belongs to someone in the neighborhood, and either they don’t know or care that she’s got kittens or they booted her out because of it.

Everybody say wayo

Let’s be clear. I live in a cat-free household, by choice. In my head, I know that kittens, adorable as they are, grow up to be cats. But in my heart, I feel that maybe just these kitties will stay innocent, sweet, and unable to maul furniture and jump on counters. My dream kitten would have no back legs. Our two dogs love kitties; it’s the heaps of reptiles we have that have me worried. That, and Shawn hates those of the feline persuasion, and one of my good friends is extremely allergic.

So I’m forced to foster these little stowaways outside, at least until we find kindhearted fools who are willing to take in these furry bundles. We’ve been working on socializing them, and although they are still timid, they no longer hiss and spit when we pick them up, which is too bad because it sounds hilariously like our Steam Shot cleaner. *pfffsst* *pfffsst*
