Last CD for a few days...

First off, Mr. Stoney is home! Woo hoo! Second: he is taking me to a gala, I get to put the girls up on display and climb up into my 4in heels and third: OPEN BAR!! dovil has opened the door on drunken posts, so there may be something funny or cringe-worthy....

hellziggy had the request of "Animal" so let's see if we all remember our King Phillips Came Over From Great Spain. (That is to say, Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species.) Please: I have a degree in Microbiology and am reduced to helping with science fair. Let's let those four years mean something.



Kingdom: Animalia, Phylum: Chordata, Class: Actinopterygii, Order: Perciformes, Family: Sphyraenindae Sphyraena barracuda
1. Barracuda, Heart. HA! Setting the tone, folks. And how kick ass is the opening guitar line? You're thinking it RIGHT NOW.
Order: Siluriformes, Family: Malapteruidae, Malaterurus electicus
2. Fishing Blues, Taj Mahal. I love this man. If you want to have a Huck Finn-type album, get his Greatest Hits. It's bluesy, but Cajun all the way. And Malaterurus electricus is catfish.
Class: Mammalia, Order: Carnivora, Family: Canidae
Atelocymus microtis
3. Dog Pound Blues, Ren and Stimpy. Ren is a Chihuahua, hence the microtis. I am really a great, bug nerd, aren't I?
Smoothiformus ghetticu
4. Beautiful, Snoop Dogg. I know I just used this song, but I am stuck on it. And this is going to Minnesota, so I didn't want to send "juggling these nuts in ya muthah fuckin' mouth" you know? Trying to be helpful....
Funkifus woofinae
5. Atomic Dog, George Clinton. Daddy of funk, y'all. (Heads up to no one in particular: please punctuate y'all properly! you + all = y'all. That is all.)
Caninus huninidae
6. Dog-Faced Boy, Phish. Hee!! Fun with Latin! And Phish kicks pirate treasure.
Vrocyon conereoargenteus
7. Main Theme from "The Grey Fox," The Chieftans. you know how many damn different genuses of fox there are?? I didn't know either. And I love The Chieftans.
Order: Primates
Family: Cibidae, Cebus capunicus
8. Shock the Monkey, Peter Gabriel. It's a capuchin monkey in the video, by the way. A white-faced capuchin, which is classified differently than a black faced. Fun AND learning: it's the Stoney way!
Family: Hominidae, Homo sapiens
9. Teach Your Children Well, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. Some are no better than animals. But then, humans are in the same family as the "great apes." D'oh!
Order: Perissodactyla, Family: Equidae, Equus Caballus
10. Mairzy Doats, Al Trace. My husband didn't know this song... My dad used to sing it to me when I was a kid. "mairzy doats and dozy doats and little lamzidivy" It's: mares eat oats and does eat oats, and little lambs eat ivy. Hence the Equine nomenclature.
Order: Artiodacytyla, Family: Suidae
Sus bucculentus
11. Piggies, The Beatles. Hee! I love how diverse the White Album is. Every song tackles a different genre.
12. Pigs in Zen, Jane's Addiction. "The bigger you get, the wider you spread."
Class: Aves, Order: Passeriformes, Family: Troglogytidae
Microcerilus philomela
13. The Nightingale, Angelo Badalamenti. Can you tell I like him? This is the sad love song from Twin Peaks. Back when Lara Flynn Boyle looked good. And Sherilyn Fynn. Good god, make a person HURT just looking at her.
Kingdom Animalia, en toto
14. Rock Steady, Sting. Who DOESN'T love a song about Noah's ark? Get it! Ha ha ha. I am a loser. But the song is good. It's Sting.


Okay, I'm taking a break over the weekend, but I will get meli_77's out later tomorrow. (It's done, I'll just post it tomorrow or Sunday) and I need anelith and vincentveritas to email me their snail addys. You're next!

Off to get gussied up and drink like a phish! Hee!

I was taught it as "King Phillip Came Over For Good Sex." Yes, by a teacher, in a public school. Hee.

Also, Shock the Monkey is one of my favorite songs.

Oh My God!! That's hilarious. I had to have a stupid history lesson tied in. In my 300 series biology courses, every day we came into class, there was a picture of some "organism" on the main board and we had to turn in the complete taxonomy by the end of the period. Phun! *craps self*

I love Peter Gabriel so much.... If you are into his more esoteric stuff, and you don't have it already, grab his CD of music from the film "The Last Temptation of Christ." It's fantastic. You're coming up!

Thank you!
Hooray! It arrived today! It is being copied into my iTunes right now so I will be listening to it on the iPod tomorrow at work.
I'm such a geek~I put all your kingdom, phylum, etc. info into the notes section on iTunes. *grin*
Oh, and your rhetorical you know how many damn different genuses of fox there are??... Nope, I just know that the Arctic Fox is Alopex Lagopus. :) You spend an entire summer (17 years ago!) studying one type of animal & see if you ever forget it's scientific name!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
