We got last Friday off instead of today.
If y'all haven't started listening to Coverville yet, the last few shows are good ones to jump in on since Brian had his listeners vote on their favorite covers. We could nominate one song, and then when the nominations were in he put together a ballot and we could vote on 5.
There were 5 shows with 8 songs each for the top 40 covers voted on by his listeners. #1 was Johnny Cash doing NIN's Hurt.
So go, listen, enjoy.
The song scramble contest that he had that I entered, I didn't win. But I was apparently one of only TEN people to get all six right. So yes, when he says Sharon Snyder when listing them, that is me.
Another cool thing... at the end of the show he's thanking people who've let him use their music, donated money or stuff, or just supported the show in some way. I was listening & completely surprised when he included me in the thank yous. That was pretty cool, cuz I don't really consider maintaining the uber-database of the show playlists to be work. Especially since updating it now consists of just copy/paste from the Coverville site.
So, if you ever wanna know if a specific song has been played on Coverville, or if an artist has either been covered or done a cover and Brian has played it, just let me know.
In other news, as you can see in teh pictures of lucky13charm's Jayne iHat, hellbob has his Nano. We ran to the Apple Store yesterday and exchanged the 2 GB I got him for a 4 GB (he was originally going to be getting a 4 GB, but they didn't have them in stock 4 days before Xmas...)
We just barely got to the store before closing, and while checking out I got to chat with s4 for a while.
Then we went and bought our copy of 40 Year Old Virgin, because Mark hadn't seen it yet. Funny funny stuff!
