30-day song challenge – Day Two!

Your least favorite song.  I hate a lot of songs.  If I’m in the car and a Rush song comes on, I move with a speed I didn’t think possible to change it to anything else.  Unless it’s Joanna Newsom, this one makes me very sad, because I like her, and she has very pretty hair, and I don’t dislike her songs, but her voice just doesn’t work for me.  Which makes me feel like a horrible person because that’s such a personal thing, to criticize someone’s voice. AND! I’ve been a fan of Billy Corgan for years, and I know his voice is difficult to love.  I think I’m going to give her another shot.  Owen Pallett covered “Peach Plum Pear” at SXSW, and it made me think it was time to try again.  When I think of the worst of the worst, of a song that I hate so much that I am furious with myself when it gets stuck in my head, it’s Ween – Push Th’ Little Daisies.

 

I hate it so much that flames, flames, on the side of my face . . .

That makes it better.

And then there’s this.

This person started recording a few seconds late when he/she figured out what was happening. There is another video, but it’s all blurry.  Ok, fine, I’ll post that one too.

Did I mention I was at this show? So great.

You know what would help right now? A tiny Danny Zuko.

So I’m reading this USA Today article about how the University of Nebraska wants to ruin my life, and I get to the bottom and see this:

I keep trying to think of a funny connection here, but it's just wrong. Wrong wrong wrong.

What?

I’m not sure why I referenced Danny Zuko and not, um, a character that Kelly Preston played. Like . . . well there was that time . . . wasn’t she in . . .

Oh right, that’s why.

Give me a call when she becomes an American cultural icon.


Aren’t old trailers hilarious?

I’m going to try to sleep and not think about a world where my two favorite teams are in the same conference, or worse, ending up in the friggin’ Pac 10.

I’ll try to write again soon, but you know how it is, rockin’ and rollin’ and what not. I might just not be able to squeeze you in, so be cool baby.
