See now, this is great an all, but I wish there was a way you could magically send all this music to me so I could listen to it too.

But, you see, that would be illegal and I don't pirate music...

Props on:


"La vie en rose" (one of the best songs ever written, altough I do prefer Louis Armstrong's treatment to Martin's.

DC Talk - Most people wouldn't ahve the stones to drop the D-C-T...On eof the msot influential Christian albums of the last twenty years.

Dwight Yoakam - Love me some Dwight

Dusty Springfield...

Totally unrelated--but you're way behind the 8-ball in blogging:

Guess who just made Notre Dame 0-4 for the first time in history AND became the first team to win in South Bend six consecutive times?

Micah said...

dr. zeius - Oh, I've got the stones. Did you notice that I started this whole thing off with Ace of Base?

jasdye - I dust it off from time to time. Even though it represented one of the biggest things wrong with CCM (namely, the unoriginality; "Nirvana's popular. Let's go grunge!"), there's some gems on there.

dubin - Hmmmm, let me guess...Michigan State! And who humiliated Northwestern (not hard to do, since they also lost to Duke). And who thrashed Bucknell?

And who totally sucks this season? Notre Dame.

Um, yeah, I was gonna guess Michigan State too! 4-0...which means they can't finish worse than 5-7 (again)...since Northwestern is on the schedule.

Micah said...

A scheduled Northwestern game should really just be made an automatic win. Seriously. Losing to Duke in football is almost as bad as losing to a Div. 1-AA team.

Michigan seems to be rebounding (had to watch that game since ABC didn't broadcast the OSU one here in VA). I just hope poll voters don't forget their first two losses (and, like Northwestern, it seems a Notre Dame game is a non-event this season).

I just hope poll voters don't think winning 14-9 is a "major rebound."
