In fact, I’m so obsessed with not blogging that I hesitated to even post this list.
I realize I’m getting into this pretty late in the game, but at least it’s not Twitter. My stations are awesome. Favorites: Girls I Don’t Wanna Punch, Slightly Effeminate Men, “Colorful”, and...
3. Alt Rock From the 90’s
Ok, this is a piggy back off of number 2, but this station is my most treasured creation. And that includes the working volcano that won me Honorable Mention in the 4th grade science fair, ‘cause really, who wins a science fair with a volcano? Nobody, that’s who. I’m not talking about just any Alt Rock. I’ve whittled it down to a very specific sound. It sounds like:
All For You – Sister Hazel
Ants Marching – Dave Matthews Band
Better Days – Citizen King
Big Me – Foo Fighters
Desperately Wanting – Better Than Ezra
Found Out About You – Gin Blossoms
Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong – Spin Doctors
Mr. Jones – Counting Crows
Only Wanna Be With You – Hootie and the Blowfish
Pinch Me – Barenaked Ladies
Roll to Me – Del Amitri
Runaround – Blues Traveler
Selling the Drama – Live
Stand – R.E.M.
What I Got – Sublime
Wonderful – Everclear
You’re An Ocean – Fastball
Seriously. I’d be happy to email you the link. But only if you like really good music that makes you go “Aww, I remember playing Pogs to this song.”
4. To Every Man a Manswer
This blog speaks for itself.
5. Shannon Wexelberg
Shannon is one of the worship leaders at Woodmen Valley Chapel...and she is ah-mazing. Just yesterday I heard someone refer to her as a “Psalmist”, and she has mad piano skills...not to mention the fact that she’s the best vocalist I’ve ever heard. Ever. Here’s her website. To give you a frame of reference here, she’s better than me. I don’t like to brag or anything, but...yeah I do. Let’s just say I’m real good and she’s about 50 times better.
6. Lists of Ten Things
Hey, kinda like this one! A few friends and I send each other a daily list of ten things we’re excited about. It’s a good exercise in thankfulness...except for those days when my list somehow comes out titled “Ten Things That Piss Me Off”.
7. Faux Fried Chicken
Gary and I could probably eat this stuff every night, so I’m sharing the recipe with all 3 of you who read this blog. I recommend dipping it in a little Hidden Valley Ranch/Cholula Hot Sauce mixture that I like to refer to as "Rancholula". Delish.
8. Monster iCarPlay FM Transmitter
I’m a little bit obsessed with my iPod. Just a little, obviously, since it didn’t make the list. Sadly, my car does not have an mp3 jack, but this is even BETTER ‘cause this charges the iPod at the same time. I guess now I’ll have to find some other use for that case of 50 CD-R’s that’s sitting in my living room. PULL!
9. The Big Bang Theory
You won’t like this show if you’re dumb. Naturally, I enjoy it more than most.
