You Know, Cheating On A Bimbo Is Like A Sky Light During A New Moon. - Thursday Shuffle

Bad Moon Rising - Creedence Clearwater Revival.  There's a really bad moon tonight.  It's super cold and the moon is full.  Vampires and werewolves enjoy this kinda night.  It's especially werewolf-y out right now.  I'm staying in.

Light Up The Sky - Van Halen.  This is damn near the perfect Van Halen song.  Dave is on point, Eddie is masterful, Alex is a machine and Michael is a groovy cat with the slick licks and backup vocals.  Or something.

Cheat - The…

The Freak Transitions Between His Sword And The Stars While Nibbling On Beast Flesh - Monday Shuffle

Transitions - Beastie Boys.  MCA was a pretty good bassist.  Decent soundscape going on, nothing phenomenal.

Star A.D. - Faith No More.  It's a little funky, a bit lounge-ish, and a tad big band.  Faith No More is a better rock band but sometimes their experiments are beyond good.

B-Boys Makin' With The Freak Freak - Beastie Boys.  They call Russell Simmons a thief and work in the phrase "savoir fare".  Ill Communication holds up better than Paul's…

The Inspector Made A Career Out Of Betraying Trusts And Blasting Confidential Messages - Thursday Shuffle

Trust - The Cure.  After a painfully uncomfortable day in an over crowded hotel conference room I would much rather have something more upbeat, less The Cure-ish, to kick off the shuffle.  Tonight is getting off to a terrible start.  The DVR didn't record the end of the 121212 concert and now this depressive song sneaks in to further ruin whatever joy I had when arriving home.  Sniff.

Blasteroid - Mastodon.  Eff Yeah!  Effin' A Yeah!  This song is rock and roll niceness.  It's…

Your Friends Will Love The Drink When Spiked With Sixteen Milligrams Of Melatonin - Monday Shuffle

Loverman - Metallica.  Hey!  I'm weak with evil and broken by the world.  Am I the Loverman?  Probably not.  I'd never go on a Popeye-esque rant about being I am what I am, what I am, I am.

Friends - Dinosaur Jr.  I'm determined to downgrade all of my male friends to acquaintances and focus all of friendship efforts on women.  Women are slightly more interesting and infinitely less flatulent.  In addition to that, there's the potential of making wonderful sex juices with…

Take Your Uncle Willoughby On The Secret Mission - Thursday Shuffle

The Return Of Sathington Willoughby - Primus.  What the hell kind of name is Sathington?  Willoughby is a completely reasonable last name but Sathington is just whimsy.  Take precautions when grasping ideals.

Mission - King's X.  Gretchen Goes To Nebraska is rubbing on perfection, getting it moist.  Even with the preachy vibe it really is a great album.

Nobody Knows Anything - Anthrax.  It's a live version with John Bush on vocals, he's good.  Charlie is a…

People Can Die When Dosed By Words On Paper - Tuesday Shuffle

Words (Between The Lines Of Age) - Neil Young.  Whoa.  I had this song stuck in my head earlier today.  Well, it was just the chorus but still.  Freaky, man.  I've always considered this "soft core prog".    Soft core anything usually doesn't cut it for me but this is a pleasant listen.

Paper Thin Walls - Modest Mouse.  Doesn't have the emotional impact of the Cohen song but I like this song a little more.  Of course I like anything by Modest Mouse more than most other…

A Living Tree Is As Thrilling As A Truthful Trip To The Bar - Monday Shuffle

Hangin' Tree - Queens Of The Stone Age.  If the new QOTSA album is a tenth as good as this song it will be a substantial artistic achievement.  My favorite QOTHSA song by a wide margin.  My next favorite QOTHSA songs are only half as good but otherwise masterpieces.  

Among The Living - Anthrax.  Persistence Of Time is a better album.  Persistence used to be the best Joey era Anthrax album, then Worship Music came out.  This song is just... it lacks…
