First please check out Niel's Sonic Youth review here. Just look for Niel under reviews. Go Niel!

My coworker sent this article to me and I wanted to share it. I know it is good news for paraplegic's, but I worry what other hands this discovery will get into.

I am so glad that wedding talk of Charles and Camilla has died down, but I fear that there lives will be pried into as much as Princess Diana's was. Except that I felt bad for Diana while I don't care at all for Charles and Camilla. Blech.

Anyone been watching The Barkers on MTV? I always thought that Travis Barker from Blink 182 was pretty cool, but my God MTV is doing a great job with the editing to make them seem trashy. Or it could be they just really are? And I really want to give the Barkers the benefit of the doubt, but they made Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson seemed like refined geniuses. And honestly I don't dislike the Lachey's. Oh man I can't wait for the Spears-Federline experince on UPN. LOL.

My early perdicitions for American Idol's two remaining contestants are Constantin and Vonzell. They are not my favorites (Bo and Kerry are) but based on last week's performances I am sure they will be.

Squilky and Leslie asked me what music Niel put on my Ipod and who participated. Here is the list of songs and everyone who gave joined in. Thank you all again very much!! It was interesting to see what songs people picked.

Song Stuck In My Head: "Opportunities" by The Pet Shop Boys

You have some good songs on there. Wow. I especially love the U2 ones (of course). Let me recommend Echo from Incubus as it is one of my favorite songs.

Yes, I've seen Meet the Barkers. I really feel bad for the kids. The baby with the mohawk especially. You're right, they do make them seem really trashy. She used to be Miss USA, right? What a change.

Mike said...

Cool, thanks for posting the list!

We didnt recommend Hot Hot Hot by Samuel E. White. The one I recommended was the one by Buster Poindexter.

Another one I had suggested was Here Comes the Son by George Harrison. I think its one of the greatest songs ever written. Sounds like you got a great selection of songs.

Yes she was Miss USA. I liked the mohawk but I think they are so immature and self involved. I thought they ignored her daughter(by Oscar De La Hoya) completetly. There's an episode where they take the baby to a shooting range and he is upset and crying naturally. Sad. Thanks for the song suggestion also. I'll have to look into it for Incubas and yes I too like U2.

Yeah Niel couldn't find the Buster version which I like. He found the Disney version. LOL. I really like that George Harrison song also. Yeah I got a lot of nice songs. Thanks again!

I've been sucked in by "Meet the Barkers" as well. I guess I am just trying to get my reality couple fix now that Nick & Jessica are off the air. It's been ok, they aren't nearly as likeable especially when Travis was lighting up a big fattie before meeting with the wedding planner.

On the other hand, I cannot wait for Britney's show!

foodiechickie said...

Amen sister! Amen! LOL.

Holly Y said...

OH my gosh you have some of my favorite songs! Forever Young is my theme song! And very cool that it was in Napoleon Dynamite.

On the other hand, the B52s creep me out and, being blue-eyed, I dislike Brown Eyed Girl due to the fact that many boyfriends would sing that to me and I would many times have to point that out...

I'll have to check the Barkers out. I didn't realize it was one of the guys from Blink182. Is Newlyweds totally over now? But Jessica is my GIRL! You should check out some of the America's Next Top Model tonight!

BTW Thanks for the suggestions w/ meetup! I've decided to check out that book club tomorrow night! I'll let you know!

foodiechickie said...

Hi Holly! Thanks to you guys for your song choices also! Glad you liked the songs I have. I have added more stuff since then. Yeah the barkers are on at 10 or 10:30 on MTV. This is the third week but they are always repeating them! And I bet they will have a marathon. Yeah Newlyweds is over. I am so sad. LOL. Good luck with the book club and meetup! Thanks for stopping by!
