Since Father Scott already apprised you of the situation I’m calling “a serious and unavoidable technological system failure” rather than “I forgot my laptop at home when I came in to work this morning,” I’ll skip over the basics.
I am now typing on some sort of retrofitted Soviet telegraph machine that was loaned to me by the IT department. The monitor is an Etch-a-Sketch. The keyboard is made of Scrabble tiles affixed to golf tees. The mouse is an actual mouse.
Anyway, let’s do a Friday Random 10, shall we?
The Four of Us are Dying — Nine Inch Nails
Blackberry Stone — Laura Marling
Palmcorder Yajna — The Mountain Goats
Search and Destroy — Iggy Pop and the Stooges
Paris 2004 — Peter, Bjorn and John
Turn on the Sun Again — The Real Tuesday Weld
I Never Want To Go Home — The Whigs
Take the Fifth — Spoon
Keep the Car Running — Arcade Fire
No Surprises — Radiohead
Dancing Choose — TV on the Radio (Live on Letterman)
Incidentally, TV on the Radio’s new album is awesome.
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.
