It has arrived. Now to spend another shitload of money to have it framed.

Just spent a ridiculous amount of money on eBay for this Black Keys Firefly Music Festival poster. I was there, and didn’t buy any merch, so I decided I had to have it.

Sigh. Dan Auerbach and Jim James remind me so much of the friend I’m hung up on, I couldn’t help throwing in Mike Einziger for an auburn-headed cuties with beards appreciation post.

Another 30 day music challenge
19. Snog, marry, avoid the first 3 artists on shuffle.
We don’t say “snog” here in the U.S., but I get the picture. As for “marry,” I’ve already blogged extensively about how I would not marry any musician or artist, because I know from experience that what attracts you to them is what eventually drives you insane. “Avoid” makes no sense, because if they’re on my iPod, it means I like them, so why would I want to avoid them? So really, the question is, “to snog, or not to snog?” So here goes: The first song to come up is, appropriately enough, Strange Desire by The Black Keys. Definitely snog. One, or the other, or preferably both. Next up is I Fought Piranhas by The White Stripes. Jack White I would so totally snog. Finally, Sweet Cloud by The Kills. Well, I think Jamie Hince is or was married to a supermodel, so I don’t think I could compete with that. However, although I’ve never snogged or had the desire to snog a woman, I sure wouldn’t kick Alison Mosshart off my couch.

30 day music challenge

Day 1: A song you like with a color in the title.

Black Dog by Led Zeppelin, but there are tons of others. First, I think I should get bonus points for the ones by bands that have colors in their names too, like Nights in White Satin by The Moody Blues, Bad Luck Blue Eyes Goodbye by The Black Crowes, and Little Black Submarines by The Black Keys. And maybe also Sky Blue and Black by Jackson Browne - does that count? Here’s more:

Hmmm. Incubus, who hardly ever covers anyone, has covered TWO of these songs (Paint it Black and Black Hole Sun). Is it great minds thinking alike? :-)
