Friday Random Top 10 – September 18th

This is my last Top 10 before I’m done with my paper.  ‘m meeting with Anne this afternoon to go over my spankin’ new Introduction v2.0.  I’ll work the changes from Intro 2.0 into the rest of the paper over the weekend, then meet with Micheál on Monday for any last minute ideas.  I should have it back from the printers on Wednesday to turn in.  Then off to Prague at the crack of dawn on Thursday.  Look for a download on Wednesday night for those who want to read my paper.  Once it’s turned in I can share with everyone.  Music after the jump.

Friday Random Top 10 – September 4th

We’re finally into September.  Two Monday’s from now, I hope to be handing in my completed first draft to my advisors.  Of course, after setting a schedule with my advisor, I immediately took off all the urgency I’d created and I went back to slacking.  Hopefully I’ll be productive over the course of the next 10 days instead of just the last 3 or 4.

  1. Coldplay – “The Hardest Part” X&Y
  2. America – “Ventura Highway” History: America’s Greatest Hits
  3. John Mellencamp – “Hurt So Good” The Best That I Could Do
  4. Wilco – “More Like The Moon” More Like The Moon EP
  5. Red Hot Chili Peppers – “I Could Die For You” By The Way
  6. Ozzy Osbourne – “Dreamer” Down To Earth
  7. Wilco – “You And I” Wilco (The Album)
  8. The Nadas – “New Start” New Start
  9. Petey Pablo – “Raise Up” Diary of a Sinner: 1st Entry
  10. The Nadas – “Where I’m Going” New Start

Petey Pablo sure is an interesting contrast in between two Nadas’ songs.

Music Video Sunday – Father’s Day & Birthday Edition

Every so often, my birthday happens to coincide with Father’s Day.  Today is one of those days.  So to Dad, Papaw, Grandpop and any other dad’s who happen to be reading this, I want to wish you a Happy Father’s Day.  Below is some John Mellencamp, because I know Dad likes his music.  I’m not sure what his favorite song is, but everyone likes “Jack and Diane” so I went with that.  After the jump is a little something for my birthday.

Friday Random Top 10 – April 17th

I know I’ve been pretty lazy in updating my site. I’ve go no real excuse rather than I’m just being lazy. Next week I’ll get you updates, promise.

  1. John Mellencamp – “Crumblin’ Down” The Best That I Could Do
  2. Shinedown – “Save Me” (Acoustic Version) Shinedown EP
  3. Old 97s – “What We Talked About”  Fight Songs
  4. Saliva – “Broken Sunday” Blood Stained Love Story
  5. The Hold Steady  – “You Can Make Him Like You” Boys and Girls in America
  6. Jack Johnson – “Traffic In The Sky” On & On
  7. Josh Davis Band – “Evergreen Lullaby” Bluebird
  8. Avenged Sevenfold – “Brompton Cocktail” Avenged Sevenfold
  9. Chevelle – “Until You’re Reformed”  Daredevil Soundtrack
  10. Rage Against the Machine – “Wind Below” Evil Empire

The list started out pretty mellow with Old 97s, Jack Johnson and the Hold Steady and got progressively more aggressive at the last 3.  It was nice to see some of the JBD.  “Evergreen Lullaby” is off the same album as “Jerk” as featured on Music Video Sunday. And, hey, no comedy this week.
