CD Project - I'm on fire today.

Holy Product-o Girl. (Um, that's me) I have one more after this, then no more for a week. vincentveritas asked for "PEACE" and I was happy to oblige.



1. Speak to Me/Breathe, Pink Floyd. Dude. It was peace. THis makes me look back on the days of wake and bake and not feel sick.
2. And It Stoned Me, Van Morrison. Bit of a joke, but a damn fine song about hanging out in the rain and fishing.
3. Float On, Modest Mouse. It'll be okay. Really. Deep breath...
4. To Serenade a Rainbow, PM Dawn. I love this group. This whole album could have been put here for "peace."
5. (What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding? Elvis Costello and the Attractions. I love me some Elvis. Took me a looong time to forgive him for calling Ray Charles a dirty name, but if Ray can accept the apology, so can I. Yay! Because I love his music. I may write Wee!Spike but I have some principles. Stoney don't truck with no racism.
6. Cherish The Day, Sade. Remember how I said I would crawl over broken glass to listen to her sing? Still true. Turn off the lights, crack the blinds, and smooth out.
7. She's Leaving Home, The Beatles. I know. But if you grew up in my house? It's about inner peace.
8. Support Your Local Emperor, Blues Travelers. Tongue-in-cheek song about blind devotion to your political leaders. You know: for peace. Morons. Not any of you, of course. We're all blue, right?
9. Peace Train, Cat Stevens. Let's arrest this guy who wrote the peace march anthem for suspected terrorism! Ha ha! *whispers* What? That happened?
10. Tai Chi with Buffy and Angel, Christophe Beck. I love this little moment. Such a pretty little two minutes of music, too.
11. Wish You Were Here, Pink Floyd. After 9/11 everyone struggled with what to say, do, etc. David Letterman played this every night on his show when he went back on the air, and closed with a minute of silence. I saw him cry and it made me so sad. But it's a lovely memorial song. And peaceful in its own way.
12. I Always Wanted To Be A Tennenbaum, Mark Mothersbaugh. I LOVED this movie. Have a thing for the Wilson boys, too. Another quiet, lovely two minutes of music.
13. Man of Peace, Bob Dylan. Sorry all you Bruce lovers. My man is Bob. If he ain't available, I stick with Neil Young. Or change the station.
14. I Wear Your Ring, Cocteau Twins. Haven't I said enough about how fantastic they are? Have you bought their albums yet? Give them money so they'll make a new one!!
15. Don't Panic, Coldplay. "We live in a beautiful world. Yeah we do, yeah we do." This song makes me so happy. 'Cause it's true.
16. Cavatina From The Deer Hunter, Myers. Violent and sad movie. But this song is used to great effect for peace and reflection and is one of the most beautiful guitar pieces I have ever heard. Makes me stop, sit and listen to the whole thing every time it's on.


Late tonight I'll post violethamster's playlist, it has already gone out!

Yet another bee-oo-tiful selection.

Van Morrison... Sade... Bob Dylan... Coldplay!
I'm still amazed how ugly Chris Martin is in the vid for Yellow.

Don't take any notice of the icon - I'm just showing it off coz it's shiny and new. Sometimes someone makes a comment that you've just got to use...

Trouble is that I don't think I'll ever use it.

No Stoney for a week!
*sobs*

I might sneak away from the Mormons to find me some smut. I can only take just so much purity before I crack.

To bolster support for the dung icon, I have added my "crap in a bag" pic.

I'll miss you!

Lovely and fitting, as always.

I Wear Your Ring, Cocteau Twins. Haven't I said enough about how fantastic they are? Have you bought their albums yet? Give them money so they'll make a new one!!

Hee! I'm working on buying all their albums. Although for years I was content with a cassette copy taped off one of my friend's cassette of "The Pink Opaque". Played it over and over until it fell apart.

Late tonight I'll post violethamster's playlist, it has already gone out!

Squeeeee! *dances around like a crazy person, then goes to wait by the mailbox, until she realizes the freezing to death will interfere with the listening to CD*

Man, I had Heaven or LasVegas on tape for a LONG time before that got worn out. Can't go wrong with any of their CDs, that's for sure.

I can't wait to get back and see what you thought about it!

*muwah!*

Holy shit, dude, this is so good! Thank you. I cannot wait to get it. I'm so excited! PM Dawn Sade Robert Zimmerman yay! You really mixed it up. Variety rules.

One day you're going to spell my name right and I'm going to shit my pants out of shock :)

I just wanted to thank you again for making this for me. It flowed really nicely and made me feel all warm and squishy. A card will be heading your way as soon as I find the right one.

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.
