Friday Random Top 10

Yesterday a 25 year old U of MN student was killed on her bike right outside my window. Unfortunately the authorities had the covered body out for an hour recreating the scene before she was put in an ambulance. So be careful out there. If you're on a bike wear a helmet and watch for cars! If you're driving, watch out for bikers, even if they are acting poorly. Bikes will lose against a car every time!

1. View from the afternoon -- Arctic Monkeys
2. Kris Kraft -- Pavement
3. Redemption Song -- Johnny Cash (w/Joe Strummer)
4. Dixie -- Bob Dylan
5. Call Occupants of Interplanetary Craft -- Babes in Toyland

8. Hoodoo -- Billy Bragg & Wilco
