Hold On Tight, This'll Be Bumpy

Dear Friends, I am so very sorry. Truly I am. I am sorry that I feel the need to share with you a song that, for diabolical reasons known only to it, dug its way out of my subconscious a few days back. Since then it has been dancing on my cerebral cortex like your embarrasingly drunk Uncle Ted did at your cousin's wedding last summer. And dang it if I can't swat it away.

So here it is. I warned you.

Loverboy - Working for the Weekend (buy here if you must)

I suppose it is an apposite time to be posting this, seeing as it is a long weekend here, on account of British Columbia Day. I will be decamping to Mayne Island, where Darling Wife and the Childlets have already taken up summer residence, thus leaving me to fend for myself against laundry, cooking, garden maintenance, and other humdrumities. Truth be told, I had been looking forward to a spot of bachelorhood, but apart from the Buzzcocks gig on Monday, it's all been rather mundane. Sigh.

I had hoped to post my overdue impressions of Camera Obscura's Vancouver show, but I fear that will need to wait until next week. Sigh again. But to tide you over, go visit my bestest blog friend Colin. Yes, he's back in glorious Glasgow from his holidays (Hallelujah!) and he's got a prime cut of C.O. for you. Oh, and given all this (Scotland, songs posted by Colin, being ready to be heartbroken) and that (weekends), it seems appropriate to post the following:

Lloyd Cole and the Commotions - Lost Weekend (Get ready here)

Ah, much better than Loverboy. Go on, Lloyd, show Uncle Ted what you're made of.

Oh dear, I fear I'm losing control of this post. I blame ZB, who is probably the best psychotropic substance I've ever come across. Moving right along, here's a bit of Gabby La La, a San Fran area resident who makes sublimely nutty music using sitar, ukulele, toy piano, accordion, Theremin, and girlysqueak voice. Oops, those last bits of sanity are draining away rapidly and scrumdiddliumptiously...

Gabby La La - Backpack (buy here)

OK, time to go. And I leave you with Dirthouse Lapdance from Aggro1. No, don't think about it, not at all. Just mish mash mosh like a mutha while moving your mighty moneymaker.

Aggro1 - Dirthouse Lapdance (Static X vs N.E.R.D.)

Have a lovely weekend, Dear Friends.
