Friday Random Top 10


For the first time ever I dabbled into fantasy sports and started a fantasy basketball team (Cassell's Big Balls). I was bad at first but figured out how to set my line-ups and was steadily moving up in the standings. Then KG hurts his knee and is out for at least two weeks. Then Gilbert Arenas gets suspended for bringing a gun into the locker room. All of a sudden I'm reeling. What next? Steve Nash gets deported back to Canada? We need a Random Top Ten:

1. Today You Move - Trip Shakespeare
2. Away With Murder - Camera Obscura
3. You Can't Do That - The Beatles
4. Broadway - Foxboro Hottubs
5. Hey Jude - The Beatles
6. It Could Happen To You - Bud Powell
7. Michelle - The Beatles
8. Chimes of Freedom - Bob Dylan
9. Move - Miles Davis
10. Evidence - Thelonious Monk

Bonus: Trying to Get to You - Elvis Presley

Wow the rare triple play with The Beatles, plus some jazz legends and a shout out to Elvis. What's your top 10?


Giving the year 1985 a shuffle off the ol’ external HD. CDs were just coming out, and I was in my first year of work, in a far away land (called “Los Angeles”). Let’s see what retro stuff pops up…

“Gibralter” – Klaus Doldinger, Das Boot (The Director’s Cut)
“Angela” – Vitamin Z, Rites of Passage
“Mescalito” – Ozric Tentacles, Tantric Obstacles
“Stravinsky – The Rite of Spring: Dance of the Young Girls” – Tomita, Live at Linz, 1984, The Mind of the Universe
“Eye to Eye” – Go West, Go West
“Grey Promenade” – Roger Eno, Voices
“World Machine” – Level 42, World Machine
“Solly’s Beard” – Yes, 9012 Live: The Solos
“Light of the World” – Alan Parsons Project, Stereotomy
“Too Late” – Asia, Astra

Yes, Roger Eno is Brian Eno's more classically-trained brother.

I'm going to guess "surprise early retirement" as the next fantasy basketball catastrophe. It was either that or "small pudgy aliens steal your players' talent in order to defeat cartoon characters in an exhibition game".

* Houses of the Holy – Led Zeppelin – Physical Graffitti
* Take the Power Back – Rage Against the Machine – (self-titled)
* Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition – Serj Tankian – Elect the Dead
* My Violent Heart – Nine Inch Nails – Year Zero
* I Will Dare – The Replacements – Let it Be
* Vordhosbn – Aphex Twin – Drukqs
* I Wish You Were Here – Incubus – Morning View
* You’re a Big Girl – Bob Dylan – Blood on the Tracks
* Fall Children – AFI – All Hallows EP
* In C with Canons and Bass – Grand Valley St. Univ. New Music Ensemble – In C Remixed (Terry Riley/Nico Muhly)
