friday random eleven: “okay, sure” edition

11 May

Well, it’s Friday. Finally.

My work week wasn’t the worst, all told – I’ve left the office feeling better than when I arrived most days (a pattern I hope holds for today, because I really didn’t want to get out of bed). I’ve solved some problems, moved some others, and haven’t had anything else huge come up in terms of scheduling or development that’s the fault of my team – any delays coming in are somebody else’s fault, which is, I guess, the best you can hope for.

Otherwise, I got one nice ride in so far (the bike feels like new after the tune-up), and hope to get at least one more in, depending on weather and schedules, saw some great live music with my lovely spouse, and made a pretty decent curry the other night.

And tonight it’s NY style pizza and, finally, Infinity War.

Oh, I’ll also be at the Va Ren Faire with family and friends on Saturday – should be a gorgeous day. Looking forward to catching a performance from Scales and Crosstones, the other project my con friend Saber (of the Misbehavin’ Maidens) is part of, as well as partaking of the usual Faire tomfoolerly.

That’s pretty much the view from here. I’m keeping an eye on the weather for today to see if I’m gonna get a bike ride in after work; we had some nice storms yesterday, but if the sun’s out, the trail won’t be overly muddy by the time I’m free of the shackles of the timeclock.

Anyway, here’s some music for everyone – very modern indie this week; first time I’ve heard most of these bands, honestly – though the Secret Sisters’ influence is creeping in, as I’ve added them to my mix after being so damned impressed the other night.

  1. “The Middle” – Jimmy Eat World
  2. “What Do I Have To Do” – The Donnas
  3. “May 1st” – Beach Fossils
  4. “White Flag” – Joseph
  5. “Cave” – Future Islands
  6. “Little Again” – The Secret Sisters
  7. “All The Way Thru” – JD Samson & MEN
  8. “20 Years” – The Civil Wars
  9. “I Hate Myself for Lovin’ You” – Joan Jett
  10. “C’mon” – Go Betty Go
  11. “Havamal” – Falkenbach
