Friday Random 10: Why Can’t I Be Good edition

I’ll be out of town for the first three days of next week, and the work is piling up against that hulking wall in my schedule like sand on a seawall. Funny how most Fridays feel like that these days. The most frustrating thing about it is the feeling, in spite of GTD, that things are falling through the cracks, and that “to dos” are coming in faster than I can write them down—much less work the pile down.

Today’s Random 10:

  1. Violent Femmes, “Add It Up” (Add It Up (1981-1993))
  2. Lou Reed, “Why Can’t I Be Good” (Faraway So Close!)
  3. Sufjan Stevens, “Black Hawk War, or How To Demolish An Entire Civilization” (Illinoise)
  4. Bascom Lamar Lunsford, “I Wish I Was a Mole In The Ground” (Anthology of American Folk Music)
  5. Uncle Tupelo, “New Madrid” (Anodyne)
  6. Vladimir Ashkenazy, “La Mer, I. De l’aube à midi sur la mer” (Debussy: La Mer, Nocturnes)
  7. Gemma Hayes, “4:35 a.m.” (4:35 a.m. EP)
  8. Jody Reynolds, “Endless Sleep” (the Peel Box)
  9. Suzanne Vega, “World Before Columbus” (Nine Objects of Desire)
  10. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, “Is This Love?” (Clap Your Hands Say Yeah)
