    Shit shit shit! I didn’t write it down this morning, now that I can play too, ok, here’s roughly what I recall from my shower, using the shuffle of my playlist, as a true shuffle would include too many of Megan’s shitty Tupac songs:

    Change the Locks – Lucinda Williams
    Wagon Wheel – Old Crow Medicine Show
    Head On – Jesus and Mary Chain
    All This I’ve Done For You – Husker Du
    I got some move – Sam Winch
    500 Miles – Down By Law
    Fields of Athenry – Dropkick Murphys
    Emperor’s New Clothes – Sinead O’Connor
    Hungry Arms – Wonderlick
    Girl from North Country – Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan

    And fuck Pluto. Making Pluto a planet for sentimental reasons is the equivalent of the BCS’s lovey-dovey Coach’s poll ranking a college football team higher because the coach is a venerable old has-been like Joe Paterno. There is no room for sentimentality in taxonomy.

    I think the real question is how less than 5% of the register Astronomers in the world can take a vote on something this major (to culture not for anything else) and expect it to hold.

    How does this friday Random ten game worK? What must one do with his/her Ipod?

    You put your mp3 playing application on shuffle, and report the first ten songs it gives you, and you’re not allowed to skip anything or edit your list. If it gives you, for instance, a Crash Test Dummies song, you proclaim it to the world. If iTunes had happened to play some goofy podcast, or the Kelly Clarkson song I have hiding on there, I’d have had to tell you about that, too.

    I was a little late on the Steve bandwagon, so when I clicked on your “I’m with Ellis” link in regards to Pluto it brought me to the most recent post which is a way to scam Focus on the Family. Everyone go back and click on that link. You’ll thank me later.
