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.

Friday Random Top 10 – June 19th

Well, it’s my birthday weekend.  I don’t have a lot planned.  I might go out tonight, might not, I don’t know yet.  Saturday I’m watching the Lions vs. South Africa and will probably be out all day and night.  Assuming I can move on Sunday, I’m going to Sarah’s to use her grill and cook out a bit.  I’ve rationed two High Lifes from Adam’s visit, so I’ll be having one of those at my Sunday BBQ.  The other one is for the 4th of July.

  1. The Nadas – “Where I’m Going” New Start
  2. Kings of Leon – “I Want You” Only By The Night
  3. Kaiser Chiefs – “Boxing Champ” Yours Truly, Angry Mob
  4. Eric Clapton – “Wonderful Tonight” Time Pieces
  5. Wilco – “More Like The Moon” More Like The Moon EP
  6. Foo Fighters – “Free Me” In Your Honor
  7. The Killers – “Jenny Was A Friend Of Mine” Hot Fuss
  8. Foo Fighters – “Resolve” In Your Honor
  9. Foo Fighters – “Summer’s End” Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace
  10. Avenged Sevenfold – “Betrayal” City of Evil

A triple shot of the Foo Fighters!  This list is a lot better than last week’s, though a little diversity would have been nice.  I don’t know what it is about the song, but “Boxing Champ” is my favorite song off of that album.

Friday Random Top 10 – June 12th

  1. Red Hot Chili Peppers – “21st Century” Stadium Arcadium
  2. Jack Johnson – “Tomorrow Morning” On & On
  3. Jimmy Eat World – “Polaris” Futures
  4. The Nadas – “Disenchanted Heart” Coming Home
  5. Tonic – “If You Could Only See The Way” Lemon Parade
  6. Steve Miller Band – “Livin’ in the USA” Young Hearts
  7. The Damnwells – “Closer Than We Are” One Last Century
  8. Red Jumpsuit Aparatus – “False Pretense” Don’t You Fake It
  9. The Hold Steady – “Citrus” Boys and Girls in America
  10. Kansas – “Carry On My Wayward Son” Best of Kansas

I’d just like to take this opportunity to thank iTunes for making me look like I have terrible musical tastes.  The last few weeks have been just absymal in the music that has come up.  I’ll own up to The Damnwells and The Hold Steady.  And The Nadas.  But the rest of that crap – Red Jumpsuit Aparatus?!  I only have that CD for one song, but my iTunes insists on playing it and my need for organization and completeness doesn’t allow me to removes the rest of the songs.

Friday Random Top 10 – May 8th

I’m sorry I’ve not written at all this week.  That would be because I’ve been working on a project at the Military Archives at Cathal Brugha Barracks in Rathmines.  I’ll write about my experiences this weekend, whenever I’m recovered from Trinity Ball.  I’m not at liberty to discuss at this time how I’m getting in, but we’ve dubbed it “Operation Anne Frank”.  I’ll be at the Barracks all day today, so I will get to replying to comments tomorrow.  

  1. Simon & Garfunkel – “Only Living Boy in New York” Garden State Soundtrack
  2. The Nadas – “Lullaby” Listen Through The Static

  9. Lupe Fiasc0 – “Cool” Food & Liquor
  10. Mitch Hedberg – “X” Mitch All Together

Friday Random Top 10 – April 24th

As is my nature, I’ve procrastinated myself in to quite the corner today.  With rugby, softball, and basketball on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights respectively, I’ve not managed to get any work done on my essay that’s due this afternoon.  So after this is posted, I need to hunker down and start writing (after I watch last night’s episode of “The Office”, of course).

  1. Tenacious D – “Zanzibar!” Tenacious D*
  2. The Neville Brothers – “Way Down In The Hole” The Wire Soundtrack
  3. The Nadas – “Diner” Transceiver
  4. DJ Danger Mouse/Jay-Z/The Beatles – “99 Problems” The Grey Album
  5. Kanye West – “Get Em High” College Dropout
  6. Mitch Hedberg – “This CD is in Stores” Mitch All Together
  7. Wilco – “When You Wake Up Feeling Old” Summerteeth
  8. Willie Nelson – “Whiskey River” Songs
  9. America – “Woman Tonight” History: America’s Greatest Hits
  10. The Nadas – “New Start” New Start

Death, taxes, and Wilco and comedy in my Friday Top 10s.  If you haven’t heard “The Grey Album”, I highly recommend it.  Danger Mouse took an acapella version of Jay-Z’s “Black Album” and music samples from the Beatles’ “White Album”.  

*Also, the title of this song has been changed.  If get the reference and you already know the title, you’ll understand why.  If you don’t know, you probably shouldn’t anyway.
