Music Meme

Morgen at It's a Blog Eat Blog World tagged me with this one. AND he called me a meme thief, but, hey, if the shoe fits...

The theme of the meme = you list seven songs/CDs that you've listened to recently and then tag seven people. SEVEN. Okay.

I'm mostly going to list songs, because I don't usually listen to whole albums anymore, even if I download whole albums, because I mix them up on my iPod. I've gotten lots of new stuff lately, so this will be fun.

1. Now y'all KNOW this was gonna be here. My imaginary rock star boyfriend and his band, DAUGHTRY. The entire album. Love, love, LOVE him. I seriously like every single song on the album.

2. FutureSex/LoveSounds by Justin Timberlake. Right now, I like "What Goes Around..." and "LoveStoned." To use his words, "[it's] freaky and I like it." "She looks like a model, except she's got a little more ass." Y'all, seriously, I told JT to stop singing about me, guess he wasn't listening. ;)

3. "Tell Me 'Bout It," the first single from Joss Stone's new album... I also like "Put Your Hands on Me." She's very cool, and she's only 19 years old. I'm quite envious of her talent...

4. "Thnks Fr Th Mmrs," Fall Out Boy. I like to listen to this song (or their recent single, "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race") when I first get in the car in the morning to get my eyes open. "Say a prayer, but let the good times roll/In case God doesn't show," "Thanks for the memories, even though they weren't so great."

5. "Crazy Ex Girlfriend," Miranda Lambert. She was a runner-up on the first season of Nashville Star, and she writes some good stuff. This is the first single off her album that's due in May. This one's an excellent upbeat country song, also good for waking me up in the morning. "Those pretty girls can play their games, but they're damn well gonna know my name-- I'm a Crazy Ex Girlfriend."

6. "Boston," by Augustana. Stumbled across this song on iTunes a few months ago, and then saw them perform it on the TODAY show. And I just really, really like it.

7. "Undiscovered," by James Morrison. I found this song through Entertainment Weekly's "Download This" column. "You see the look that's on my face, you might think I'm out of place, but I'm not lost, just Undiscovered." His voice reminds me of someone, and I can't put my finger on who it is, but I really like it.

You're It:
Sarah from Still Life with Soup Can
Andria from Boy Crazy
Desert Songbird from The Icebox
Katie Katie Liberry Lady
Mya Pinyan from Gotta Pinyan?
Neila from Blog that Mommy! (I know Mo tagged you already, but you only hafta do it once)

Manic Monday, Spring

Today's Manic Monday word:

We have a Momma Robin that loves our camellia bush. Last year we had 3 baby birds, and looks like she's looking for a repeat. I love to watch them grow, it happens so fast! One day they're all beak with weak little wobbly necks, and before you know it they're balls of fluff, ready to fly away...

Last year, when they were tiny babies, we had an awful terrible thunderstorm come through. The wind was really blowing hard, and there was lightening and hard rain. I was so worried about my baby birds!! Mr. Incredible set up a ladder next to the camellia bush and propped an umbrella on top it. He secured it so it wouldn't blow away, and the next day the birds (and their nest) were intact and dry...

Manic Monday, Chip

Today's Manic Monday word:

I wish I had thought to take a picture of my own, but this will have to do. Mr. Incredible and I visited the casinos in New Orleans this weekend. No, I did not win a lot of chips, unfortunately. But it was still a good time.

Manic Monday, Blow

Today's Manic Monday word:


Okay. So after spending the weekend trying to come up with something clever, I decided to search Google Images for the word "blow" and see what comes up. Seriously, I got this. I'm not complaining. The name of the gallery where you can see this lovely work includes the world Blow. So. I think it counts.
