“Company is okay, solitude is bliss”

November 19, 2010

Well, I’ll be darned. Next week is Thanksgiving. That means winter is upon us and frigid chills will soon creep up our backs. Thanksgiving also marks the beginning of the season I like to call, “who the f*$k invited uncle Sheldon to dinner?!”

Yes. The holidays bring out strange feelings in people. Your chill brother may go into an absolute fit when dear ol’ mum refuses to accept his new vegan diet. She may just drop his Tofurky on the kitchen floor (on purpose).

Heavens to Betsy!

One of your cousins may bring their new fiance, who unbeknown to him, is a part-time stripper. Kinky Kelly could get a bit too sauced on grandpa Bob’s egg nog, and tales of impromptu alley lap-dances may come spewing from her mouth.

My sakes!

So, to help you fine folks get through the next week, I’ve created a playlist of tunes.


The Get your hands of my turkey leg, soon to be son-in-law! playlist

Nicole Atkins – Vultures

Sneaker Pimps – Tesko Suicide

Merzbow – Requiem

Curve – Forgotten Sanity

Health – USA Boys

Tame Impala – Solitude is Bliss

Massive Attack – Atlas Air

Goldfrapp – Deep Honey

Autolux – Highchair

Grace Jones – Well, Well, Well

Ladytron – Burning Up

Fever Ray – Triangle Walks

!!! – Jump Back

TV on the Radio – Make Love All Night Long

Crystal Castles – Vanished

Jim Noir – Car

Lykke Li – Get Some

David Bowie – Let’s Dance

Rossini – The Thieving Magpie


As you listen, please look at my favorite piece of art right now. It’s by Suehiro Maruo.

Nothing says "I love you" like an eye lick.

Just don’t do that to your aunt at the dinner table.

So distasteful!
