i love rock and roll..

and i do. and i love lists. and fridays...:)

today rocks because i bought joan jett tix today. awhile ago, i was trying to come up with five bands that i need to see but haven't. joan was the immediate choice and sadly, it was a list that was never completed. but maybe that's a good thing. because i will have completed the list in december now. :)

here it is my friday random top ten. i think i feel "cooler" this week. or at least not as lame.

1. intro/go to the floor – missy elliott
2. store bought bones - the raconteurs
3. abra cadaver – the hives
4. remember - the raveonettes
5. sea of alcohol – boy
6. the harder they come – waco brothers
7. and now for something completely similar – nofx
8. a singer of songs – johnny cash
9. futuretarded – the vines
10. all is full of love – björk

allison decided to expand the game into creating a song.

i decided to make a verse in the order of the shuffle. i used mainly the first lines because it seemed to work. but that nofx "song" really screwed things up. there's only two lines! and the first is welcome to our CD!

momma say momma sah momma can u do this
get up on your hands and knees.
ah know what's wrong with me
and i never think you'll get it,
drowning in a sea of alcohol
they never seem to hear even your cry
can you hear the blatant similarity?
i’m not a savior, and i’m not a saint.
i don't know how the future started
all is full of love

i screwed up my sidebar recently trying to fix it. i'm in the process of adding everything back but it's going take some time. so if you used to be linked and aren't anymore, it's not because we've fallen out...:)

Well rounded top 10!
I really enjoy reading how everyone else puts together their lyrics. I think I'm going to stick with this game every couple of weeks, its fun!

Oh, and how exciting on joan jett! I've always wanted to see her too. Look forward to a concert review.

I have to get myself a blog. I'm kind of an idiot when it comes to computers so this may take awhile.
The list thing and cobbling together lyrics is a really cool idea. I need a blog so I can join.

Fridays are the best. I have Fridays off and most people don't which I love even more because I feel as though I have the entire town to myself. I'm a museum fanatic and every Friday I make my rounds. My sister things I'm deranged.

Your song turned out rather well! Good job scoring Joan Jet tix - she is a legend.

I have Fridays off as well, Toccata and it's the best thing ever. Mind you, it's spent running around like mad, but at least I'm not doing it on Saturday.

i'm pretty stoked about joan jett. we have way wicked seats. it's weird because the show is at the casino. it seems weird to be going there to see a 'rock' show.

hopefully i'll be able to get my camera in.

i feel as if i have had ever day off combo you can have in my working life. and i love having a day off in the week because you can actually do stuff without spending a lot of time waiting. i am not good at waiting in lines.

You've got Joan Jett TIX???!! OMG! Lucky you! Im so jealous. I like your hybrid song. I put my lyrics in order that my songs played too. I bet I could've made it sound better if I had even thought to mix them up haha.

PS I detest waiting in lines too!! who doesn't tho eh

toccata- i think i have read you are in the process of getting a blog.. yahoo! i have only been blogging for a few months now and one of the reasons i started was because i wanted to learn more about computers etc.

i haven't forgotten about palace. i am mulling over some ideas that may include a new music blog/cd exchange.

i have a friend who doesn't mind waiting in line! she says she just focuses on what the end result will be. she even offered to wait in line for me to meet kiefer sutherland. but that's a whole 'nother story.
