Fairy Spike


Oy. Falling asleep. Time for bed then. I've got my homework just about done. The tough parts are done, now I just need to poke & tweak it.
I'll be getting to leave work early tomorrow though rather than doing overtime for the hour I accidentally stayed yesterday. Yay! That works out good since I'll be able to get to school early in case there are any issues with printing. Then I turn in my final project tomorrow night and I'm done for the semester!

Thursday five

minervacat's Thurday Five today was top 5 favorite cover songs. Hmmm. You think I can come up with five? LOL!

My answers are here:

1. I'm gonna cheat and go with a whole genre of covers: Rap songs covered in another style. I LOVE this! Just a few of my favorites...

Straight Outta Compton, Nina Gordon (orig. NWA)
Baby Got Back, Jonathan Coulton (orig. Sir Mix-A-Lot)
Boyz-N-The Hood, Dynamite Hack (orig. NWA)
Gin & Juice, The Gourds (orig. Snoop Dogg)

2. Rock 'n' Roll, Rasputina (orig. Led Zeppelin)
The lovely Miss bloodlossgirl turned us on to this fabulous group!

3. Tell Me Does She Love the Bass, Lesbians On Ecstasy (orig. Like the Way I Do by Melissa Etheridge)
The took a typical Melissa Etheridge song and turned it into a dance mix. It gives the song a whole different feel.

4. My Heart Will Go On, A New Found Glory (orig. Celine Dion)
Of course, anytime it's not Celine singing, it's an improvement!

5. Time After Time, Uncle Kracker (orig. Cyndi Lauper)
This one is from the Clockstoppers soundtrack. I've always liked this song, and I just LOVE that man's voice.

I can't list just 5... I can't do it! Here is a list of runners-up!
Hurt, Johnny Cash (orig. NIN)
I Will Survive, Cake (orig. Gloria Gaynor)
Mrs. Robinson, The Lemonheads (orig. Simon & Garfunkle)
Wonderwall, Ryan Adams (orig. Oasis)
Burning Down The House, Tom Jones w/The Cardigans (orig. The Talking Heads)
The Gambler, Uncle Seth (orig. Kenny Rogers)
Tainted Love, Marilyn Manson (orig. Gloria Jones...Soft Cell's version was also a cover!)
Living For The City, Aslan (orig. Stevie Wonder)
The Boys of Summer, The Ataris (orig. Don Henley)
Eleanor Rigby, Godhead (orig. the Beatles)

So, oh readers of mine. What are your favorite cover songs? Bonus points for you if you mail an mp3 of it to [myusername] @

vacation, all I ever wanted...

I'm officially on summer vacation! Tonight was the last night of class. I turned in my candy bar ads and all I have to do now is wait for the grades. I am currently getting a low A in the class. Not bad considering the effort put forth was about a B or C's worth! Now I have to go through the schedule of fall classes and figure out what to take next!
