Friday Random Ten, back to double-digits edition.
Antarctica: the biggest party island of them all.
Life is back to normal in the Gillett household now that my air conditioning is finally fixed and indoor temperatures have dropped from 100-something to a nice, brisk 80 or so. But I'ma have icicles hanging off of this bitch by Sunday. You just watch.
1. Crowded House, "Together Alone"
2. Orbital, "Impact"
3. David Cross, "'You Go, Girl!'"
4. Pet Shop Boys, "How Can You Expect To Be Taken Seriously?" (Eclipse mix)
5. Orbital, "Acid Pants"
6. R.E.M., "What's the Frequency, Kenneth?"
7. Fugazi, "Walken's Syndrome"
8. Genesis, "Jesus He Knows Me"
9. Cake, "I Will Survive"
10. The Farm, "To the Ages"
There's good news all over the place, though: the Redskins are aiming for Clinton Portis to be back in action by the time the regular season starts; the Pet Shop Boys are releasing a live CD and a documentary DVD simultaneously in October; and a federal court ruled President Bush's warrantless domestic-surveillance program unconstitutional. Which, given the administration's track record in matters such as these, means that they will most likely respond by . . . well, changing absolutely nothing about what they're doing, but still, it's nice to know someone's holding them accountable.
Your good news and/or Random Ten in the comments.
