itunes card


I want to thank my (e:strip) secret santa.

I just got my itunes card in the mail yesterday- what a great surprise! I loved it. I bought "the toaster's" retrospective cd and a liz janes lp. Thank you so very much, to the person who sent it. That was the perfect gift.

dylan concert

I had a great time at the concert with Aaron. I liked Amos Lee, and Dylan was good (though his voice was in bad shape). The best act of the three was definitely Elvis Costello. He sounded incredible, and was great at interacting with the audience. I loved his versions of Red Shoes, Veronica, Oliver's Army, and I Can't Stand Up for Falling Down.

Here is a picture of Elvis playing (though it's hard to see him):

The best part of last weekend was getting to see Aaron.

Here's a picture of us (definitely not a good picture of me, but it's a good one of Aaron):

9 to 5 by Dolly Parton

Tumble outta bed and I stumble to the kitchen
Pour myself a cup of ambition
Yawnin', stretchin', try to come to life
Jump in the shower and the blood starts pumpin'
Out on the streets the traffic starts jumpin'
And folks like me on the job from nine to five
Chorus:

Workin' nine to five
What a way to make a livin'
Barely gettin' by
It's all takin' and no givin'
They just use your mind
And they never give you credit
It's enough to drive you
Crazy if you let it

Nine to five, for service and devotion
You would think that I
Would deserve a fair promotion
Want to move ahead
But the boss won't seem to let me
I swear sometimes that man is out to get me
Mmmmm...

They let your dream
Just a' watch 'em shatter
You're just a step
On the boss man's ladder
But you got dreams he'll never take away

In the same boat with a lot of your friends
Waitin' for the day your ship'll come in
And the tide's gonna turn
And it's all gonna roll your way

2nd Chorus:

Workin' nine to five
What a way to make a livin'
Barely gettin' by
It's all takin' and no givin'
They just use your mind
And you never get the credit
It's enough to drive you
Crazy if you let it

Nine to five, yeah
They got you where they want you
There's a better life
And you think about it, don't you?
It's a rich man's game
No matter what they call it
And you spend your life
Puttin' money in his wallet

3rd Chorus:

Nine to five
What a way to make a livin'
Barely gettin' by
It's all takin' and no givin'
They just use you mind
And they never give you credit
It's enough to drive you
Crazy if you let it

Fade:

Nine to five, yeah
They got you where they want you
There's a better life
And you dream about it, don't you?
It's a rich man's game
No matter what they call it
And you spend your life
Puttin' money in his wallet

elvis and bob

I'm going to see Elvis Costello and Bob Dylan play together on October 9th!! Aaron's taking some time off work for the weekend and is coming up here to go with me. He actually bought the tickets as an early Hannukah/Christmas present for me. I'm so excited- they are both two of my favorite artists. I haven't been to a concert (other than a couple local bands) for years.

I hope you guys will have fun today... it seems like there's a lot of cool stuff going on in Buffalo.

goodbye earl

I love the fact that I'm watching Fast Food Nation while I am having Arby's for dinner. The movie is a series of fictional stories based on the actual non-fiction book of the same name. Interesting to watch, but rightfully disturbing.

I don't know if you would call Me First and the Gimme Gimmes newest album disturbing (entitled Love Their Country), but it certainly is interesting. I definitely like their version of Goodbye Earl much better than the Dixie Chicks versions. T. got me hooked on MFGG awhile back. I think my all-time favorite album from them is "Ruin Johnny's Bar Mitzvah". Of all the bar mitzvah rock cover band albums in the world... it certainly is the greatest.

Oh, and there's a new musical based on the movie "Legally Blonde". Yeah.

podcasts


Lately, I've really been getting into podcasts for my i-pod shuffle. I like to listen to some of the programs from NPR-such as Democracy Now and Science Friday. Actually, a really cool NPR program that is podcasted on I-tunes is called "All Songs Considered". All Songs Considered features a few select artists each week. Sometimes they are indie or unknown artists; other times they are established mainstream performers. It introduced me to some new bands/artists that I like- "Ok Gogol" (Ukranian rock lounge band), Elizabeth Cook (country singer), the National, and Hypernova (Iranian Stroke-esque rock group).

They Might Be Giants, Hem, and Wilco both have their own feeds. It's interesting to have performers discuss their songwriting process while they play their own songs.

What programs do you listen to?

last fm

I really like lastfm. It's a little bit like Pandora in that it has the radio station format based on selections you might like, but this has some cool networking/blogging features that are unique.

What do you estrip people usually use as far as music seeking/playing programs?
