Hi, The point (if there is a point) of this blog is to post liner notes and playlists of mix CDs originating from moi and hopefully fanning out into a chain of mix CDs. If you get a CD from me, make me and a friend one, and email me some liner notes and I'll post them. Then your friend should make you and someone else a mix CD etc etc. Maybe it will work PS If you want to be on my knit list, let me know what you want and I'll see what I can do!

Above the Influence

Well, I guess they just announced the finalists in the Webby awards (however relevant or not they may be anymore), and I saw the Above The Influence website is one of the nominees.

Every single time the ad where the kid tries to put his fist in his mouth comes on, my son and I both try to jam our fists in our mouth. Every. Single. Time. One of these days, one of us will end up in the ER and have to explain the Above The Influence ad made us do it.

Some of the nominees that also caught my eye were:
Beastblender, with rather a limited roster of beasts, but cool idea. Watch Me Change (flash), complete with porno sound track and cottage-cheesey looking bodies.
Maori Showbands; somewhat of a niche.
Off the Map, kind of cool outsider art.

I also took a look at McSweeney's, (is this affiliated with Dave Egger's McSweeney's?).

I always think they publish the Best Crime Writing books, which they don't. I absolutely love these books.

Well, anyway, I found this article about sleep positions, and I'm sorry, but I find it hard to believe that any couples ever sleep like this, unless the guy is on top and fell asleep mid-coitus. I sleep on my front in the 'freefall' position, which apparently makes me brash, gregarious and thin-skinned, whereas I believe myself to be unbrash, ungregarious and thick-skinned. Plus we are approaching the time of year when my feet have to hang over the side of the bed with no covers, to remain that way until about September. What does your sleep position say about you?

The host of Desert Island Discs is leaving after many years. This show is like the killer app for radio - it is such a fabulous concept, and I love looking at the playlists of people I like.

Here's something interesting - there is not one single camper van (aka RV) in the whole of Britian for the month of June. They're all off to the World Cup! I think a fish and chip van following that caravan could clean up.

Last but not least - yay! And just for a change, he doesn't look like a portly Spy-Vs-Spy

"Bread and Spread"? No fucking way. I'd have dreams that I was being smothered, or I'd fall off, or . . . well, it's just fucking WEIRD.

yeah - that's the same mcsweeney's. i always have intentions to read that site more regularly, but i never do.

and why did I look at the webby award nominations? it just made me annoyed. I must have the sleep position of an easily-annoyed person (on side, arms encircling a pillow, one foot sticking out of the covers).

NO ONE sleeps like the bread and spread. when the "bread" didn't have a partner, did they just sleep with a large, person-sized weight on their back?

pinky, you and i have the same sleep position--that of an easily annoyed person.

i once had a boyfriend who wanted to sleep in the bread and spread position. and talked abut how his ex-boyfriend used to do it w/him every night and how it is the most comfortable thing ever. so i had to kill him.

you freefall people... did you read this?
"Lying down flat means that stomach contents can more readily be worked back up into the mouth"
you'd better be sure you eat something tasty for dinner, 'cause it's coming back up!

me, i'm a foetus, which is kinda gross, really.
