Look what paint can do!

Well, paint, ink, water, and vibration....

Symbion Project - "Exploited & Exposed"

Very cool video.

Cover Me Mondays: Addicted to Love

Original, Robert Palmer, 1986:

Cover: Florence + The Machine, 2009:

**Note: Just so you know, this was not the song I originally picked for today's cover. But after careful consideration, I decided that MGMT's cover of NIN's Closer wasn't exactly rated PG. Oh well.

Humpday Listday: While I Was Gone

10 things I did while on my little blog-break:

1. Read all the Sookie Stackhouse books.
2. Bought a new pair of boots.
3. Got really sick and ended up in the emergency room twice in 24 hours.
4. Got better.
5. Started eating a banana every morning... because I was tired of yogurt.
6. Had satellite installed at the apartment... with DVR! Happy!
7. Went to a funeral in North Carolina. Sad.
8. Realized that organizing the toys at the shop where I work is a fruitless effort.
9. Watched the Bourne Trilogy for the first time.
10. Played The Black Keys' album Brothers approximately 1 thousand times.

This is a story about sausage.... and rolls.

What kind of people go to FOUR grocery stores looking for Sister Schubert Sausage rolls?

Apparently, Chris and I are that kind of people. Four grocery stores just so I could have sausage rolls and Cheerwine for dinner.

Crazy? Maybe.
Healthy? Absolutely not.
Delicious? Definitely.

Cover Me Mondays: Dancing In The Dark

No apologies for being gone, I needed the time. Now, if you don't mind, I'll jump right in with one of my all-time favorite covers.
Now, I've never really been a huge fan of The Boss, but this song has always been one that I love.

The original:
Bruce Springsteen, 1984

Pete Yorn, 2001 (Bonus track on his album, Musicforthemorningafter)

In other news, I am very very close to being done with September's mixtape. Today or tomorrow. Better late than never.

PS... I'm not making any promises, but I think I'll be back to a regular blogging schedule soon. Thanks for stickin' around.
