I love the Dresden Dolls!  I saw them live about 10 years ago.  I also went to see Amanda Palmer over the summer

They are no Sleater-Kinney, but they're good!

my wife is 30.  how old are you?

do you ever watch Portlandia?  Carrie Browenstein from Sleater-Kinney is in that show and it is hilarious:


I always thought Corin Tucker was a better Eddie Vedder than Eddie Vedder.

Most likely no time for Modern Major General,
here is the Cole Porter medley I will do for a talent show at my school.

I will sing and guitar.


Night and Day

Easy to Love

I Love You

All Through the Night

So in Love

In that order, basically trying to fit five songs in around five minutes without really rushing. Obviously, mostly just singing the refrain, although I plan to sing the beginning verse from Night and Day, although I could do Easy to Love first and do the verse from that instead.

Of course, there were other songs I wanted to fit in:

In the Still of the Night

I Got You Under My Skin

Brush Up Your Shakespeare
The world is charged with the grandeur of God.
    It will flame out, like shining from shook foil;
    It gathers to a greatness, like the ooze of oil
Crushed. Why do men then now not reck his rod?
Generations have trod, have trod, have trod;
    And all is seared with trade; bleared, smeared with toil;
    And wears man's smudge and shares man's smell: the soil
Is bare now, nor can foot feel, being shod.

And for all this, nature is never spent;
    There lives the dearest freshness deep down things;
And though the last lights off the black West went
    Oh, morning, at the brown brink eastward, springs —
Because the Holy Ghost over the bent
    World broods with warm breast and with ah! bright wings.

"One would be straying from the straight path were he to wish the altar restored to its primitive tableform; were he to want black excluded as a color for the liturgical vestments; were he to forbid the use of sacred images and statues in Churches...and lastly were he to disdain and reject polyphonic music or singing in parts, even where it conforms to regulations issued by the Holy See." - Ven. Pope Pius XII

All Through the Night

I love anything goes. Cole Porter himself singing. He has that WASPY voice of a bygone era. This play was actually running here last year. Great times:

couple classics from what was probably my overall favorite band growing up. the guitarist (now deceased) was actually one of the most skilled guitarists ever, so good in fact that he got banned from competing in guitar competitions in Texas because he always won. i think i was about 6 or 7 when their second album came out and i was into them from then right up until they split up.

Haha, first time I've seen Dimebag not spoken about as himself. Guess I'm just used to being on metal forums. RIP Dime.
