Hmm ... remember that scene in Garden State where Natalie Portman has Zach Braff goofing off in weird ways, just so that he could do something that no one else has ever done before? I think you probably just did something like that by consecutively listing Canned Heat, KMFDM, and Aimee Mann.

You should see my Xbox playlist. It is mostly metal and industrial, but I like to sneak things in there to psyche out my friends.

There's nothing like winning a battle in a fighting game becuase your opponent can't stop laughing at the fact that You Gotta Be by Des'ree just started playing.

That's honestly how I like my playlists to be. With barely 512mb to the mp3 player there's gotta be some variety. I'm a big appreciator of diversity.

From Bubblegum to Sky - Operation Big Beat
Ted Leo & The Pharmacists - Me and Mia
Cheb Khaled - Ya Aachkou
A.C. Newman - Miracle Drug
Timbuktu - I Väntan På Vadå
Rammstein - Nebel
Philip Glass & Kronos Quartet - String Quartet No. 5 - V
Dragonball Z - Cha-La (Japanese Dragonball Z theme)
Duran Duran - A View To A Kill
George Carlin - There is no God

Hey, I'm all for diversity. Some of my best friends have diverse playlists. It's just that particular grouping that struck me as amusing. I think it was the inclusion of Canned Heat - the juxtaposition of Pepsi commercials with "Spit Sperm" is pretty funny.

Ha! I was just listening to a "A View to a Kill" the other day. That is perfectly aged, delicious cheese (and highly embarassing if your car windows happen to be down.)

Tracks of the moment:
Robert Pollard - Boring About (from the Bubble OST)
The Like - What I Say and What I Mean
Amy Miles - Noble Hatch
Whoop That Trick - Djay aka Terrence Howard

Good call on the Philip Glass, Nick. Made me go listen to the Kundun soundtrack.

The Kundun soundtrack is amazingly weird. If you haven't got it, I can really recommend the Kronos Quartet Performs Philip Glass

A lot of it was used in Errol Morris' Fog of War.

And Lester, one can't even begin to grasp the meaning of 'cheese' until one has heard 'Cha-La', the Japanese Dragonball Z theme.
