Lazy Saturday

Today, I'll be airing some Pop Eye re-runs, in honor of the new blogfriends I've picked up over the past year or so. But mostly because I'm lazy and have nothing to talk about today. I know that Lindsay is officially (maybe) a lesbian now, and plenty of other celebs are doing plenty of dumb things, but I have some things to do today before going to see the Sex and the City movie tonight, so I just don't have time to come up with a thoughtful blog post. But don't worry, I'll spoil the movie for everyone tomorrow! Yay!

This look back into my archives was prompted by the Air Supply video that I posted on Thursday. I checked to see if it made my Top 40 list of '80s songs, and was surprised to see that it didn't. Well, compiling that list might have been a labor of love but there were also some serious labor pains involved. Picking only 40 songs out of the best musical decade was very difficult. I'm sure if I stare at that list for too long, I will go insane thinking of all of the good songs that were omitted. So, I'll avert my eyes and let you all stare at it for a while.

First, read Vh-1's Top 100 Songs of the '80s.
Then, check out My Top 40 Songs of the '80s.

For a list that puts Air Supply at #1, try My Top 15 Overly Dramatic Songs.

My old lyrics quizzes! I may do another installment of this if anyone is interested:

Part II

Awww, isn't it cute? My first blog post! No "Hi, this is my blog and I'm not sure what I will write about" business. I just dove right in and dissed the Rolling Stones.

Awww, isn't it cute? My first Idol-related post! Also a reminder that the songwriting competition was my idea. Bastards. No, I will never let it go.

It is good to see that you are into recycling. I did something similiar today too. I found a post I wrote in January that was unpublished and put it up. Thanks for the trip down memory lane. Keep 'em comin'.

Gosh so many options! I don't know where to go first! I think I'll read about you dissing the Stones so I can come back and post a rebuttal.

There's no need for recycling, Beckeye. When I found your blog, I spent the entire day reading absolutely everything in your archives, so this stuff is totally familiar to moi. But still, it will do no harm =)

I'm just about to sit down and do my column on sitc. I'm looking forward to your dissing

Why the hell haven't the Rolling Stones listened to you and retired already? And while we're at it, get Paul MacCartney the hell out of here too.

More lyrics contests, more lyrics contests!

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
