Happy Friday!

I’m heading to the ATL tonight for my baby brother’s engagement party and, as I’ll be seeing one of my best childhood friends Little Sara, I decided to make a good mixed dance tape for after the grandparents take the kids home and the adults remember that we all used to party together (hey Veronica, is this a run-on sentence, you genius?).

So, in honor of Little Sara, I found this killer Salt ‘N Pepa song that we used to dance around to at the lake during “Moms’ Weekends at the Lake” festivities. It’s off the Colors soundtrack so this would have made us about 13 and 14. We had great taste event then…

I filled the rest of the CD with songs that I cannot help but pop around to in the car, giving this entire town the impression that I’m lame. I am, but not because I like to dance, so get over it.

Here’s the track listing because I’m proud of my mixed-CD abilities. Anyone who knows the movie High Fidelity understands this. Let me know if you want a copy…

Oh yeah, and my friend “Stella,” who’s a total bitch, sent this to me yesterday in honor of my buying a house. It actually reveals a lot about Stella.

This has been on my mind lately:

“I queried a major magazine and included a list of interview sources. They rejected my idea but, one year later, they just published the article I pitched to them, and they used my sources!”

This record turns 20 this year. This was Morrissey before he got really into his own drama. This album is hilarious and disturbing, not to mention essentially 80s.

“As Rose counts the money in the cannister, who comes sliding down the bannister, a Vicar in a tutu, he’s not strange. He just wants to live his life this way.”

I have much new respect for the troupe of girls at the dance studio. Not only did these classy, sophisticated, talented ladies transform into warped circus-freak, screeching punk rock chix before my eyes, but their cover of an L7 song along with some originals (“Bitch-ass Dog” and one about being a freak ballerina among them) surprised and delighted even the ever cynical and BS-detecting Lord Somber. In short, it was a very good time. No saccharine social commentary, no holier-than-thou “artistic” achievement, no attempt at being anything other than — well — fun. It’s rare around here lately and it went a very, very long way. Hopefully I can get a pic of the spectacle known as The Circus Peanuts (hence the name of the band) posted soon.
