Shitty Mix Tapes

Not quite sure how I found it, but Paige is having a contest for the worst 5-song mix tape imaginable. Here's my entry. Full disclosure: every one of these is on my iPod.

We start out by setting the mood...
1. I'm Too Sexy (Right Said Fred)
Nothing says "I love you baby" like talking about how sexy you are compared to her cat.

2. Run Joey Run (David Geddes)
A tender tale of teenage love, except in this one the father accidentally shoots and kills his daughter while trying to shoot her boyfriend.

3. Afternoon Delight (Starland Vocal Band)
Settin' the stage for some lovin'. "My motto's always been; when it's right, it's right. Why wait until the middle of a cold dark night?"

4. Sweet Transvestite (from Rocky Horror Picture Show)
"I'm not much of a man by the light of day, But by night I'm one hell of a lover". Yeah, this is the right song to send that message.

5. Who Let the Dogs Out (Baha Men)
Let's have fun!

"Til Gabriel Blows His Horn"

"The Eyes of Texas"

Texas 41, USC 38.


I couldn't stop pacing throughout the fourth quarter, even though I knew Vince Young would pull it out. Simply amazing. Passing, 267 yards. Just another day at the office. Rushing, 200 yards. Jaw-dropping.

They said Mack Brown couldn't win the big one, you can't get any bigger than this.

And I finally won my annual Las Vegas bet on Texas winning the National Championship. Woohoo, $35!

It's nice to start the New Year with good stuff like this. A nice change from the way the last year ended. A good omen, perhaps.
