Sound Off

In an effort to avoid the thrill-ride of writing a research paper, I felt the need to push out another post. Let me tell you, it is hard to tear myself away from riveting text like "nondisjunction in meiosis results in gametes with an unreduced chromosome number." If I were to replace words I didn't fully understand with objects and situations common to my everyday life, that sentence would read: "Dog hair in nachos results in disappointment with an unreduced alcohol consumption."

As previously promised/threatened, here is that gem of a song by Sammy Johns.
Sammy Johns - Chevy Van

And to help you cleanse your palate, here's some decent music.
Van Morrison - Caravan
Wreckless Eric - Whole Wide World
The Roots - The Seed 2.0
Bon Iver - Skinny Love
Béla Fleck - Etude in C-Sharp Minor

I caught wise to Wreckless Eric while watching the mediocre Will Ferrell movie Stranger Than Fiction. Béla Fleck is the only artist I could find playing in San Francisco during my stay that was worthy of my dollars. Almost exactly seven days from now, I'll be seeing him and the rest of the Flecktones live. I'm jazzed.

i can relate to dog hair in everything, and getting quite used to it actually. I just close my eyes and call it extra fiber.
Love the song by the roots-don't know them but will look around for some more
and your poor uncle jack offing that horse....he didn't mean to

So glad to see that you are going to cleanse your Chevy Van palate with a little Bela Fleck. That's more like it. You should be able to be seen in public now.

I am still a big fan of Chevy Van. AND THAT'S ALRIGHT WITH ME.

But here is one of my ALL TIME FAVORITES. I post the link here for you because I feel it is apropos given the fact that the last three Mommy Blogs I visited had comments from you on them.

Bj in Dallas said...

know what song makes me puke????
The wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.
I would survive the water drip on my forehead alot longer than hearing that over and over..

Lorrie Veasey said...

OMG that is another one of my F A V O R I T E S. i mean--the lyrics...
Does anyone know where the love of God goes
When the words turn the minutes to hours
The searchers all say they'd have made Whitefish Bay
If they'd fifteen more miles behind her.

I have three versions of this on my ipod.
