Of all of the "memes" (not really the right word, but there it is) that have been floating around the weblogs, the two that I could best participate in would be Friday Cat Blogging (which seems to have faded) and the Friday Random Ten. I've been kind of curious as to how my iPod would randomize, because I tend to put my complete collections of anyone I'm interested in on mine, rather than just favourite selections. So let's see how it turns out.
1. Hello Skinny Medley - The Residents (covered by Primus) - Eyesore: A Stab At The Residents
2. Dead or Alive - Oingo Boingo - The Best of Oingo Boingo
3. Bruces' Philosophers Song - Monty Python - Monty Python Sings
4. Parking Spaces - Bob Rivers - More Twisted Christmas
5. Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout Would Not Take The Garbage Out - Shel Silverstein - Dr. Demento 20th Anniversary Collection
6. Creeping Dread - The Residents - The Census Taker
7. Cocoricci (Le Tango des Voleurs) - Men Without Hats - Rhythm of Youth
8. Round and Round - David Bowie - Ziggy Stardust (30th Anniversary release bonus track)
9. Peter and the Wolf - Serge Prokofiev
10. Make Me Moo - The Residents - Demons Dance Alone
Probably about a -5 on the Internet Music Snob's coolness scale, but that works for me. Lots of Residents -- no surprise, since I used to run the official Residents website and have about 850 Residents tunes on the iPod (6770 tracks total).
If I were just playing to listen to, I'd've probably skipped Parking Spaces (pretty nondescript as a Bob Rivers Christmas spoof song goes) and Round and Round (the sound quality isn't very good). Had I done that, that would have added:
11. Perpetual Motion - Philip Glass - Anima Mundi
12. Down in the Park (Piano Version) - Gary Numan - Telekon (Bonus Track)
