Tuesday Tunes

Did you miss the launch of my 365 Project? Go check it out! I can’t promise either of the 2 photos that have been posted so far are interesting, but they are there which is all that counts really (don’t tell my college Photo advisor I said that…).

In other equally as exciting news, I finally bought a basket for Fitz’s toys. I figured having all of his various chew-things in one central and contained spot was preferable to stepping on them all over the house or finding them under the blanket when I crawl into bed. Unfortunately, all I’ve succeeded in doing was convincing Fitz there is a small, rectangular, wicker demon whose sole purpose in life is to steal all of his toys. Fitz has since sworn vengeance on said basket, and has exacted his revenge by chewing the the wicker to shreds, rather than any of the toys inside of it, mere centimeters from his face. I don’t even know sometimes with this dog. It’s like when I adopted him I forgot to request they include his brain with his paperwork.

Anyway, I know I said I wasn’t going to do another Tuesday Tunes after the George Michael Eyebrow Extravaganza of last week (because really, how do I top that?), but I’ve recently been on a music kick and couldn’t resist posting a few jams.

Is there anything better than Patsy Cline? I didn’t think so. It’s a toss up between this song, “Why Can’t He Be You” and “Crazy” as to which is my favorite. I love them all, and have been listening to them on constant repeat the last week or so (in between the requisite amount of “Careless Whisper,” fyi). No one put as much emotion into her lyrics like Patsy. I wish there was still music like this being made today.

But since there isn’t, and music today sounds like this, I am trying to embrace it. At the NYE get-together over the weekend, there was a Best of 2011 playlist going throughout the night, and this song was played twice. It’s been in my head ever since. I’m not a hip-hop/rap fan really, but I reserve a special place in my heart for Kanye West and all of his insanity (he doesn’t make any sense as a human being, but his music makes me feel like a badass). “Watch the Throne” is a really impressive album, even for those of us who listen to too much George Michael and New Kids on the Block and Patsy Cline.

This has to be even weirder than my post last week, the more I think about it. These are two of the most unrelated songs I could’ve picked. Unless next week I feature Insane Clown Posse and Edith Piaf or something. You never know. Weirder things have happened. Like George Michael’s eyebrows, THOSE HAPPENED.

  • You might also like “Crying” by Roy Orbison. Like Patsy Cline, a one of a kind voice set to many great songs.

    • Love Roy Orbison! I’ll give it a listen. Thanks for the recommendation!

  • Great music choices this week….far superior to your choice in containers for dog toys. I called the destruction of the wicker basket as soon as I saw it. Poor choice…..he already has a taste for wicker after destroying the decorative wicker balls that “used” to be on your coffee table. He’s just a nutcase puppy! That’s why I call him a crackhead.

    • Thankfully, his destruction is not yet fully blown, but I’m betting the first time he gets to it when I don’t have the presence of mind to keep an eye on him that basket is gone. Those poor wicker balls! They were so nice. And then they were everywhere, including the lining of his stomach. Sigh. He is a total nutcase. And a crackhead, I’ll admit.

  • The fact that you created and launched a sub-domain for your 365 Project just amazes me. When/if I finally get around to switching platforms this year, I may have to pick your brain.
    I am a huge hip-hop fan, probably because I grew up in the ‘hood ;). But, I totally get what you mean about Patsy Cline (and that genre of music); It’s back to basics. Simple and pure with no gadgets and no reverb.
    PS~Ah, Fitz, you stinker.

    • Pick away! I’m more than happy to help because I wish there had been someone I could’ve consulted in the whole process aside from Mr. Google (going back to when I went from wordpress.com to self-hosted wordpress.org platform, and up to adding a sub-domain). I used to code in high school, so I’ve had some experience in html/css, but I’m really a figure-it-out-as-I-go kind of girl, and I tinker with things until they look right. I’m sure a real, professional web developer would look at my code and gasp in horror at how messy and jury-rigged it all is, but hey! It works for me. So, long story short: yes, I’d love to help you switch platforms. Getting all your content moved over is actually the easiest part of the whole shebang, I swear!

      Where did you grow up? Are you an LA girl through and through? I love me some Biggie. (Was he from the West coast, or was Tupac? I never remember)

      Fitz is a total stinker, in the literal and figurative senses of the word.

      • Ah, you girls always have me in stitches. I’m from the L.B.C. (Long Beach), as Snoop Dogg would say. Tupac was from Oakland, so he’s West Coast. Biggie was from New York, so East Coast. Ok, it can’t really be a good thing that I know all this hip-hop trivia.
        Growing up, I lived in the burbs of Los Angeles. So, yes, Los Angeles-ish through and through.

    • Teresa! That just made me laugh so much. Are you really from the ‘hood. Like Compton or South Central?

      • Yeah, I wanna know too! Which ‘hood you from, girl?
