Friday Random Ten – The Modem Got Shocked in the Thunderstorm Edition

Man, Jill is kicking some ass, isn’t she? Good thing, too. My modem got fried during this last bout of thunderstorms. I’m working off of the laptop, and let me tell you, it sucks.

You know the deal: If it’s Friday somewhere, it’s time for the Friday Random Ten. Upload your mp3s, set to random, list the first ten that play.

1) The Runaways – Cherry Bomb
2) Lady Saw – I Got Your Man
3) AC/DC – Thunderstruck
4) Cat Power – Werewolf
5) Barbara Pittman – Handsome Man
6) Reverend Horton Heat – Folsom Prison Blues
7) Donovan – Wear Your Love Like Heaven
8) Erykah Badu – Green Eyes
9) Wilco – Hell Is Chrome
10) Jeff Buckley – Grace

I think the highlight of the day was finding my copies of the Richmond Sluts and The Problematics in my laptop bag. Got to find a silver lining somewhere with all of this failed modem stuff.

    Launchcast went jazz-happy on me, which while good, is very unrepresentative.

    Artist — “Song”

    Trivium — “Drowned & Torn Asunder”
    Charles Mingus — “Autumn in New York (Take 2)”
    Robert Johnson — “Honeymoon Blues”
    Miles Davis — “Spanish Key”
    John Coltrane — “Nature Boy”
    Louis Armstrong — “I Can’t Afford to Miss This Dream”
    Stan Getz — “Corcovado (Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars)”
    Thelonius Monk — “Who Knows”
    The Blasters — “JB Lenoir Jam”
    Soundgarden — “Circle of Power”

    Of course, after the Ten, Launch then decided to throw in a little variety, with some Johnny Cash, some hip-hop, and Cradle of Filth…garg.

    Fuckin-a, ‘Hell is Chrome’ is a good fucking song. That whole album is one of my all-time favs.
