Stop Me If You Think That You’ve Heard This One Before

In a quasi-committed effort to catalog the soundtrack in my head…

To start the day, 5 O’Clock World, The Vogues. This was my own homage to the spectacular life story of Robin Williams, RIP. The connection is this song was on the Good Morning Vietnam soundtrack, which I listened to on heavy rotation as a youth.

Next up was our collection of Less Than Kind songs. (Very grateful to Mike for updating my anytime access to our house music!). The voice of the singer of one of the songs on there, So Much For Everyone, reminded me of the singer from the band Live (remember them?). I looked it up and it turns out So Much For Everyone is done by Dan Mangan, who has nothing to do with the band Live, as far as I can tell. I’ll have to look more into Mangan when I have time. Of course, all this led me to listen to Mental Jewelry next.

In between LTK and Live, I wandered over to the local Goodwill, mostly in an aim to rid myself of the lollipop purse (much to the chagrin of Mike and Ashley, I’m sure). While there, the Talking Heads (And She Was) played on the PA followed by The Clash’s Rock The Casbah. Yes, that will keep me shopping, thank you. I ended up with just a few more items than a purse. Just a few. Nice work, Goodwill.

Oh and Kmart? Screw you. Jeans and hoodies. Kids jeans and hoodies. I. Can’t. Stop. Screw you clever jingle writers. May the hell you are surely going to play your jingles in perpetuity. Gotta stop watching live tv.

Rounded out this evening with my Morrissey/The Smiths mix. All about the angst, right? I can’t wait for August to end. Really, I just need to make it to the 22nd, when The Simpsons finally go into syndication. Finally.

Geoguessr is my current favorite way to kill August. Totally addicting. To date the closest single guess I got was 461.6 m/504.8 yards (4998 pts) at a spot near Arrecife on the Canary Islands. Can you beat that?
