My Playlist

Who said Grading Had to be tedious? Well it is. So here is how I have been lightening the mood: On a recent episode of Definately Not the Opera on CBC radio, there was a documentary about how some celebrities have been publicizing their IPOD playlists. The host then asked the question that are these really their playlists? Did they not leave out some rather unpopular and maybe embarassing a hidden penchant for Milli Vanilli? Don't our playlists reveal deep seeded personal secrets?

So here is my playlist...uneditted. (Except for the italics and bold):

You don't even want to know how few of these I know, aside from the obvious classic rock. (Which may be why I'm rooting for Bo and Constantine.) I really need to get into this decade and get an I-Pod. They are kinda flimsy looking-my kids might crush it. Guess I'll need to google your guy. That Buble guy was worth a listen and a peek at :-)

Ya know what's cool is iTunes' (legal) file sharing...I had never really listened to Jack Johnson, Modest Mouse, or a bunch of other great artists before I had it...(this concludes our unpaid advertisement)
