I'm posting two tree photos tonight, in celebration of Earth Day.
Well, kids. It's just another exhausted Wednesday. A good day, but I've been having some motivational problems. I had a little time to myself for a change, which was good, I just wish I could have spent it lying on my couch watching a movie or something equally relaxing. Maybe this weekend...
Here is a whole row of trees by a lane. I could just hug them all.
Okay, since I'm so lame, I'm going to just post the random playlist my iPod created for me while I was running and leave it at that. Trust me, it's all I'm really good for right now.
"Galway Girl" - Steve Earle. It was just about a year ago that I saw him perform live at the Englert. I think he would be even better to see in some small town bar, playing with a real band.
"Got to Give It up Pt 1"- Marvin Gaye. Even his disco era stuff is awesome.
"The One I Love" - R.E. M.
"Gamma Ray" - Beck. This song is so fun to run to...Or to do anything, really.
"Mama Said Knock You Out" - LL Cool J. Don't call it a comeback!
"Johnny Too Bad" - The Slickers. This is from the soundtrack of the movie The Harder They Come. There was a time in my life when I was delusional enough to think I'd be able to afford graduate school in comparative literature where I would study Latin American and Carribean literature and film. I think I've seen almost every Caribean movie made up to a certain year.
"Raspberry Beret" - Prince. This is one of those songs that takes me right to a particular place and time whenever I hear it: My first day at the salmon restoration site in the California Conservation Corps. in Leggett, Ca. in 1985.
"Come On Eileen" - Dexys Midnight Runners
"Ceremony" - New Order. Better this than "Blue Monday", which is annoyingly overplayed.
"Don't You Just Know It" - Huey "Piano" Smith and the Clowns
Today I was thinking about how I get songs stuck in my head when I don't listen to to music while I run. In the past I was foolish enough to tell people I knew about that problem I have. An ex-boyfriend used to think it was funny to play Ratt's Round and Round, when he saw me getting ready for a run. Have I mentioned to you how grateful I am for my iPod?
