Friday Random 10: The Sun Always Rises Edition

Pax Arcana

It’s been a brutal week for Pax Arcana, as I tried desperately to cram four weeks of work into two before taking a week off. That explains both the lack of posting and the relative incoherence of content.

But tomorrow morning, I’ll be waking up to this — sunrise at the Jersey Shore:

Which makes it all worthwhile.

Anyway, if you don’t hear from me for a few days, you’ll know why. Of course I said the same thing last year and ended up posting like three times a day. Something about fresh local tomatoes and flounder gets the creative juices flowing.

Oh yeah, and Scotch. Lots of it.

Onto the songs:

Bop Gun — Parliament
Where Fugees At? — Wyclef
Bargain — The Who (Live in San Francisco, 1971)
Broken Drum — Beck
The Ballad of Love and Hate — The Avett Brothers
Johnny Viola — Shearwater
Souled Out!!! — Conor Oberst
Ain’t Too Proud to Beg — The Temptations
I Don’t Know For Sure — Hüsker Dü
Fast Blood — Frightened Rabbit

Bonus Video:

Waving Flags — British Sea Power, Live at Later…

The Rules: The Friday Random 10 is exactly that — random. We open up our iTunes, set the thing on shuffle, and listen to 10 songs. We are not permitted to skip any out of embarrassment or fear of redundancy. Commenters are encouraged to post their own.

  1. Hearing you wax romantical about you and your wife going back to your roots for the best week of your year to one of our coworkers right now makes me want to vomit. Out of jealousy. Flourescent lights. Track changes. Word.

    Have fun and come back with an 11-day hangover.
