friday random eleven: “don’t throw away your shot” edition

02 Mar


Life this week has revolved entirely too much around using my dad voice. Funny thing was, I wasn’t really doing it at home. The supposedly professional adults I am charged with working with are well in the midst of all kinds of petty squabbling and I’ve had to do too many things that feel too much like kid wrangling…

…and then I wake up this morning to things that look quite a lot like mansplaining.


I did get my hands on that backup $50 bass from monoprice, as well as my little tube amp I ordered. Both are pretty nice; especially the bass, given the price. It plays really nice for a cheap instrument, and once I do the couple of upgrades I’m planning, it’ll be very solid. Came set up really nice, even after riding in cardboard box in the back of a truck across the continent, not something you can always count on.

Anyway, that was nice.

The weekend is shaping up to be pretty busy; the feis (which I learned yesterday my car dashboard can pronounce correctly when reading me texts and emails while driving) is Saturday, all day; I’ve got a full day of dance dad volunteering tasks, as well as some Friday evening setup. I’ve already started assembling my emergency cable-n-connector kit for fixing the sound system.

And the kid is home for spring break tonight; of course, I have to spend a significant chunk of next week in Ohio. Joy.

While I wallow in my stress and groaning, please enjoy these tunes:

  1. “Hold The Line” – Toto
  2. “Pour Some Sugar On Me” – Def Leppard
  3. “Goodpain” Yoke Lore
  4. “I Heard It Through The Grapevine” – The Slits
  5. Under Pressure” – Queen feat. David Bowie
  6. “Rebel Heart” – The Shelters
  7. “The Promise” – When In Rome
  8. “Saggitarius” – Phoebe Green
  9. “The Killing Moon” – Echo & The Bunnymen
  10. “Fascination Street” – The Cure
  11. “Holiday on the Moon” – Love & Rockets

Finally, because we all need this wonderful thing that dropped last night:
