And You’re Here…Why?

July 30, 2010

So, I’ve been looking at the stats of my blog in some more detail lately, and I’ve noticed a sorta weird trend – more than 1/2 (sometimes even as much as 2/3) of my daily hits come from home-page visits….yet, only a few people each day are visiting Grooveshark for my playlists. Why are you here? Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate the traffic. I’m just curious. Leave some comments!

Today’s playlist is made up of some oldish hits – with the exception of Frankly, Mr. Shankly and Watching the Detectives. Those are just great songs. Also, does anyone else find it sad that all these “old” songs get grouped together, as if they were homogenous? I sure hope Eminem and Chris Brown are never considered equal.

Here’s Today’s Playlist

  1. Frankly, Mr. Shankly by The Smiths
  2. Wouldn’t It Be Nice by The Beach Boys
  3. Jack and Diane by John Mellencamp
  4. American Girl by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
  5. Born in the U.S.A. by Bruce Springsteen
  6. Eight Days a Week by The Beatles
  7. Rebel Rebel by David Bowie
  8. Rock the Casbah by The Clash
  9. Watching the Detectives by Elvis Costello
  10. People are Strange by The Doors

I’ve returned from the little rock I inhabited for the last week. Namely, Oahu, which was a party more or less the entire time, mostly thanks to my cousin. That was the fastest week of my life – I barely even had time to make my skin tan enough to not be blinding!

Now I’m back in overcast Seattle, basking in the balmy mid-50’s. Normally, I couldn’t care less, but it’s summer and I just left mid 80’s weather. If I could capitalize numbers, that 80 would be capitalized.

I’ve got a nice chill, semi-poppy, soft rock playlist for today (or tonight, rather). Many of you are probably more familiar with Nirvana’s cover of song 10 – I assure you, the original is just as good.

Here’s today’s playlist

  1. Mad World by Gary Jules
  2. Only Ones Who Know by Arctic Monkeys
  3. Anyone Else But You by The Moldy Peaches
  4. Oscar Wilde by Company of Thieves
  5. The Long List of Girls by The Blow
  6. 1234 by Feist
  7. Summer Skin by Death Cab For Cutie
  8. Easy Tonight by Five For Fighting
  9. Candle in the Wind by Elton John
  10. The Man Who Sold the World by David Bowie

Back to the Roots

June 12, 2010

It’s another sunny Saturday in Seattle, and I’m feeling mighty fine, if a little bit guilty about procrastinating on my studying. I’ve got a playlist of some older hits for ya today, mostly upbeat to match the weather.

Also, I managed to get ahold of an APB beta key, and for those of you who are interested, I would recommend heading over to Rock, Paper, Shotgun right now – they might still have some left. And even if they don’t you can check out the plentiful E3 posts there – I’m also staying updated through Kotaku and Joystiq.

Here’s today’s playlist

  1. Hello, I Love You by The Doors
  2. You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away by The Beatles
  3. American Girl by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
  4. Hotel California by The Eagles
  5. Starman by David Bowie
  6. Rocket Man by Elton John
  7. Bedbugs and Ballyhoo by Echo & the Bunnymen
  8. Don’t Fear the Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult
  9. Throw Aggi Off The Bridge by Black Tambourine
  10. California by Phantom Planet
