Turn It Up Fridays

It feels like spring is finally here today, with the temps expected to get into the (drumroll) high 40s - the warmest day of the year so far. To quote from the Scissor Sisters, "It Can't Come Quickly Enough."

It is great to see the snow melting, but the downside is all the crap that's been lost and buried under the snowpiles for the last three months. Like the dishrag, dog shit and leather gloves I saw at various spots along the sidewalks on the way to work this morning.

Album cover of the day: Millie Jackson "E.S.P." I guess I have juggs on the brain. I blame it on Sunday's Chocolate Mannequin.

Songs you should be listening to today: I'm in a covers mood - the fine mellow acoustic version of "Hey Ya" by Mat Weddle of the band Obadiah Parker; "Comfortably Numb" by the Scissor Sisters and "Even Here We Are" by Shawn Colvin.

Tonight Richard, Dop, Kevin and I are going to the Scissor Sisters concert at the Riv. Juicy sweet, y'all.

Prashant Sridharan said...

I haven't heard of any of these bands.

Wait a sec...are you a hipster?

Alannah said...

Have a gay ol' time! I'm jealous!

ReckenRoll said...

I bought tickets for the Sisters in June in London. Weeeee! You must tell me how great the show is so I can get properly excited in anticipation!

The [Cherry] Ride said...

Prashant: Low blow man, low blow.
Alannah: "gay" being the operative word for the night. I think Kevin may be wearing gold lame.
Wingman: I've seen them once already and they're fantastic. But you probably could imagine that already.

i saw the sisters once in jan 05, and they were awesome. i hate the new album though, so i didn't even bother trying to see them on this tour (though i was out of town when they came through DC back in january).

i love the millie jackson album where she's sitting on the can. that belongs in the smithsonian.
