First visit to Music Savvy Mom? Awesome! Go
For instance, last year on Facebook, I get a Friend Request from some woman whose pic is WAY too small for me to see, (she’s since changed it – no cracks about my failing eyesight) and whose name is COMPLETELY unfamiliar. Well, being the Devil-May-Care type, and knowing how many brain cells I killed in college which may or may not have been integral parts of my memory…I “accepted” her. Turns out I DID know her – we went to High School together for Cripe’s Sake (she’s since married and hadn’t included the maiden name), haven’t seen her in ages, and that she’s actually considerably more humorous than I remember!
Yes, my long lost buddy is none other than That Chick from Brutalism , and today’s Guest DJ. Now, when I say she is “considerably more humorous than I remember”, I should probably point out that she was a RIOT in High School, so you’re in for fun. Snarky, cutting edge and fearless, she sees the subtle humor in situations that most normal people would overlook…but, she’s not above donning the Captian Obvious hat, either.
Come to think of it…she’s like a gorgeous, suave, sophisticated Lucy Ricardo.
Any way you look at it, a visit to Brutalism is must if you’re an afficionado of “intelligent funny.” After you’re done reading here and here and here and here, go check out her other blog. Not to be missed – trust me!
And hey…don’t forget to be commenting on the Guest DJ’s blog, now. Them’s the rules. ahem. And, if you love it – buy it. We want no starving musicians on our collective conscience.
I cannot believe you’re even letting me participate in this, as I:
a) do not own an iPod and only vaguely understand what a shuffle is
b) still own a disc man, which I took to the dentist recently to block out the noise of getting a tooth extracted (and was totally mocked by my young dentist)
c) err on the side of pop when selecting music that I like — and have no idea what the cool kids are listening to these days.
That disclaimer aside…if I DID own an iPod, and did have it loaded it with music, my shuffle would hypothetically include the following nod to old school:
1,2,3,4 Plain White Ts
Big Girls Don’t Cry Fergie
Come On Now Ramones (had to sub)
Sexuality Billy Bragg
Somebody’s Cryin Chris Isaak
Snow (Hey Oh) Red Hot Chili Peppers
Hybrid Moments Misfits
Minority Green Day
When the Girls Get Here Young Fresh Fellows (had to sub)
I tell myself you’re laughing with me: Brutalism
