Johnny Cash— Delia's Gone Well, I'm not feeling homicidal...yet! Maybe I'm weird, but I have to say that the music is totally helping the whole process. (I think maybe it helps to be thinking in a sort of detached "what mood am I in and what song would fit" kind of way, so that I'm not re...

You work with your ex?! Egads, time to hit Craigslist. No way man, I *love* my job! Besides, it's not SO bad...we both work from home more than half the time. So, we'll figure it out. And I've got my not-so-subtle playlist ready for the office speakers, when I need it. Oh, and I've added: Another L...

Not after the fact at all! In fact, I'm sure the list will continue to evolve on a day to day basis, with my moods. (Tomorrow at work with the ex will be interesting, especially since I'm the one that usually chooses the tunes for the office...and there's a tiny part of me that wants to put "I'...

Thanks to everyone for the tips, advice and well wishes. Here is my (very tentative and under construction) playlist. I kind of like the general progression it represents: sad and lonely, really sad and slightly pathetic, really pathetic-please take me back!, wow it's really over, slightly bitter be...

Break up songs?

Ouch! I'm livin' in dumpsville. We're both sad, we're both sorry, no one's to blame--it's all a big craptastic cliche (I even got a version of the "I love you but I'm not IN love with you" speech.) So...I'm embracing the cliche. I'm putting together a playlist to soothe my broken heart (an...

Yeah...Streetcore and Global a Go Go are both quite good. A lot of Latin and world beats, mixed with some classic rock styling. The lyrics vacillate between being political without being preachy, combined with a sort of surrealist personal view of the world. He worked a lot with Tymon Dogg (the viol...

Yeah...I think the Village Voice got it right: Punk Planet had atrocious and nearly unreadable reviews, but fantastic features. I still reference that Punk Planet book all the time. And seriously, who would've thought MR&R could last longer?? (On a side note: At the place where I work we TOTALLY...

Hyperbole does me in again... Though I did also see Bush and Romney ("Dr. Falwell was a man of distinguished accomplishment who devoted his life to serving his faith and country.") in addition to McCain and some others. The Romney praise is pretty rich, considering that Falwell was convinc...

It was really sickening to see every politician under the sun talk about what a "great man" Falwell was. Good riddance to a miserable bigot....so this story totally makes me smile: Tuesday, May 15, 2007 (SF Chronicle) Gays, lesbians hold 'anti-memorial' for evangelist Jerry Falwell Matthai...
