Sunday Funnies

I would advise viewers to refrain from drinking while the clip plays....


"just drop a squat and put the key in..."

Enjoy the Sunday.

Quick Kid Story
Haley and Anna both received personal digital music players on the eighth birthdays. Lolly, 5, yesterday asked that I begin to keep a list of music she would like to have on her player when she's "a big girl"... its perhaps a bit early to get started but a song you love is a very precious thing. Her list, then:
1. Bubbly -- Colbie Caillat
2. Ballroom Blitz -- Sweet
3. I Think I'm Paranoid -- Garbage
4. Build Me Up Buttercup
5. Pumpkin Soup -- Kate Nash
6. Drift Away -- Dobie Gray

Shopping Alert
Every Friday, Amazon.com designates five full length albums to be sold for $5 all week long. If you haven't caught on before now, Amazon is offering the best price on mid-quality (256 kbps) DRM Free audio files. Their downloader works nicely and will drop the files right into whatever library you use, including iTunes---makes for a seamless integration with your 'pod without suffering iTunes DRM issues and lesser quality files. It still falls short of what I believe should be on offer---uncompressed .wav files, just like a vinyl single in all its aural glory, but definitely a step in the right direction and perhaps---good enough?

This week's offerings included Death Cab for Cutie (Narrow Stairs), The Mamas and The Papas Greatest Hits, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars---kind of like what you might find in a bargain bin...cool.
