The Englishman Conspired With Ahab To Win Gold By Fixing A Fisticuffs Bout - Wednesday Shuffle

Checking my Google Music uploads and it seems like a decent portion of my library has found its way to the cloud.  Even though its missing more than a few songs it's peppered with enough to make an interesting shuffle.  Here we go.

Silver And Gold - Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros.  It's a bland, go nowhere kind of song that annoying hipsters love.  This quasi folk stuff will be the end of popular music.

Fisticuffs - Primus.  Alright!  Saw on Facebook today that Les auctioned off a prototype bass he used on tour to benefit his nephew in his fight against infant leukemia.  It fetched more than $50k.  Somebody got a bargain.  Fisticuffs is a top 10 or 15 word.  It's brutish and elegant.  I also tend to like the Primus march songs.

I Am Ahab - Mastodon.  Here I thought you were a progressive metal band from Atlanta named Mastodon. My bad Ahab.  Sorry for the mix up.  Been fighting an ear infection for a few days now and complex music like this sounds like muffled noise.  If'n I could hear it, I'd enjoy it.

Englishman In New York - Sting.  Awww, hell yeah.  This my jam, cuz.  Why does Englishman get the P.C. pass but people get their panties in a bunch when someone says Chinaman?  Hell, even spell check underlines Chinaman with a red squiggly mark but Englishman passes scrutiny.  People and computers suck.  People that program computers are the worst.

God Send Conspirator - Coheed & Cambria.  Haven't fully absorbed the first album just yet but I dig the odd tones going on here.  Even the infection can't muffle the goodness.  Really looking forward to the new release in October.
