friday random pandora ten – “dancing while the world burns” edition

24 Jun

It’s been a week (as I always say – one day I’m going to do a statistical analysis of common phrases of this space); I’ve been chronicling it here, mostly, so no real need to go into it now (but you know I’m going to, at least a little bit). the stuff I haven’t talked about mostly has to do with prep for a big multi-agency meeting I have to present some stuff at in DC next week. Otherwise, it’s been regular life stuff. The kids have actually been making progress on the yard clean-up (or were, before the storms started hitting late this week); gotta give them props for that.

The other big news I haven’t mentioned yet is that earlier this week, The Blibbering Humdingers got confirmation that we’ll be returning to Dragon*Con later this year! This involves lots of coordination about logistics and whatnot, but we’ll make it happen. If you’re in Atlanta over Labor Day weekend, come check us out.

Most significant to this business, however, is that after three years of dedicated service on the bottom end, I made the band bio. I have now officially hit the big time.

This weekend is pretty much all dance, all the time. The Heart of Ireland recital is this weekend, so we’ll be booked all day Saturday (and probably recovering all day Sunday). I saw “we”, because I’ll be participating as well; doing whatever odd jobs need done, as well as making my dance debut in the father-daughter exhibition. come see lots of semi-coordinated dads (and brother – my son didn’t get out of this) go through elementary choreography! It’s like watching the three year olds, except “cute” in an entirely different way.

Not much else on the agenda; hope it stays that way. In the meantime, here’s some music to listen to as the Brexit business causes the world economy to collapse around us:

  1. “Waiting on a Memory” – The Badlees
  2. “Dangerous” – Big Data
  3. “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” – Queen
  4. “Calling All Angels – The Wailin’ Jennys
  5. “Long Island” – that dog
  6. “Karla with a K” – The Hooters
  7. “Dark country” – Tom Smith
  8. “Walking on a Dream” – Empire of the Sun
  9. “Holiday” – Vampire Weekend
  10. “What You Want/What You Got” – The Unloveables

I don’t know #8 other than hearing it here and catching the end of a tune on a radio skim the other day. Not sure how I feel about ’em, but they’ve sure got a kickass album cover.
