I think I saw someone do this on Feministing.  And I dug it.  You hop on your iTunes and pick 18 completely random songs.  Once, a boy left his iPod at my house. I looked through it. I felt like I had read his diary, scrolling through his playlists and songs and artists and Most Recently Played.  Music- How Personal.  I digress…this isn’t meant to be personal, this is meant to be fun! 

  1. “Becky” ~ Be Your Own Pet
  2. “Tie My Hands” ~ Lil Wayne ft. Robin Thicke
  3. “Do You Dream At All” ~ Tilly and the Wall
  4. “Barely Legal” ~ The Strokes
  5. “Next Lifetime” ~ Erykah Badu
  6. “Black Mags” ~ The Cool Kids
  7. “Beautiful Nightmare” ~ Beyonce (Oh Man. Guilty Pleasure.)
  8. “Black and Gold” ~ Sam Sparro
  9. “When Doves Cry” ~ Prince (I love Prince…it was bound to pop up!) 
  10.  “I Wasn’t Made for Fighting” ~ Woodhands
  11. “Radio Christiane” ~ The Virgins
  12. “Until We Bleed” ~ Kleerup ft. Lykke Li
  13. “All Is Love” ~ Karen O and The Kids
  14. “Ava Adore” ~ Smashing Pumpkins (Member that?)
  15. “Complexity” ~ The Roots ft. Jill Scott
  16. “Come On Eileen” ~ The Cure
  17. “Parisien du Nord” ~ Alliance Ethnik
  18. “Labios Compartidos” ~ Mana

Ok. Done. Methinks you would never want to actually make a CD out of that.  It would be quite disjointed.


shocker: men who have never watched porn are as common as unicorns. ~.m. by maria b.

the Interdisciplinary Research Center on Family Violence and Violence Against Women was looking to do a study on the effects of pornography on sexuality. for the control group, naturally the researchers needed a group of men in their 20s who had never watched or seen porn before. and, as you’ve doubtless figured out, they found that there are none. at least, not in North America. you can find a little more about the story here.

this week’s number: 428% by maria b.

between 2000 and 2007, insurance company profits rose 428%. you read that right, 428%.

thanks for trying to fix that, Senator Al Franken.
