friday random ten – “bittersweet june” edition

10 Jun

Happy Friday.

Not huge amounts planned for the weekend; usual home stuff (laundry, cooking, etc), farming for some anniverary cakes on Marvel Heroes (I’m not ashamed), staying out of Richmond until the Dumpster fire leaves town, and maybe continue some nostalgic meditation watching old Bob Ross Joy of Painting episodes on Netflix. Also, having some musical adventures on Saturday that I’m almost ready to seriously start talking about (gigs may be involved); right now it’s knocking together a repertoire and recording a few demos.

Kids are wrapping school – finals next week, but everybody’s pretty much already done; you know how it is. Also, I know how it is, watching these kids enjoying their year-end anticpation and knowing I’ll be keeping the same old schedule, still getting up at the ass-end of the morning all summer, only to have to come home to find evidence of three more people (on average – there will be activities that that take some of them out of the loop here and there) living in my house all day and probably not cleaning up after themselves…joy.

Oh well; on the bright side, my little chemistry set tells me that the ammonia/nitrate/nitrite levels in the new fish tank are all bang-on zero, so, at least thus far, the tranfer to the larger box is working better than expected. I’ll keep an eye on it for another little while, but everyone looks happy, the moss has fresh growth, and the whole environment looks pretty bad-ass after dark, if I do say so myself:

Anyway, here’s some tunes. I always forget how great a tune #3 is until I hear it, then I fall in love all over again.

  1. “First Time” – Vance Joy
  2. “It’s the End of the World as we Know It (and I feel fine) – REM
  3. “Alex Chilton” – The Replacements
  4. “Voices Carry” – ‘Til Tuesday
  5. “Heaven When We’re Home” – The Wailin’ Jennys
  6. “Ironic” – Alanis Morrissette
  7. “West End Girls” – Pet Shop Boys
  8. “Such Great Heights” – The Postal Service
  9. “Have A Drink on Me” – AC/DC
  10. “We Belong” – Pat Benetar
