Saturday Tunes

Saturday TunesNot a lot of plans this weekend, so we will fall into routines fairly quickly. Kristen and Megan are hiking up Cowles Mountain. Stoney and I are waiting for them to return so we can head to Dog Beach for some beach therepy. After that we have no plans. A nice relaxing weekend lies ahead.

Right now I am sipping tea and listening to music. I did some rearranging on things in the sidebar, so make sure you check that out. The blogroll is back! Here are the next 10 tunes I’m listening to. As always, these are completely random and my ratings are included.

Review of Star Trek


After not seeing Star Trek, even refusing to pay attention to the trailer, I have this simple review.

Don’t see it. It  just encourages them to make more.

That is all.

Here are five movies I recommend you watching to truly understand the heart of the human soul.

The Godfather, part 2, part 3

50 First Dates

Talledega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby


Saturday Tunes, Valentines Day Edition

Typically for Saturday tunes I share the next 10 random songs coming out of my iPod. But today is Valentines Day and its all about love and sappy stuff like that. With that in mind I am going to change things up a bit this week and share some favorites.

Top 5 Most Listened to Songs

1. Falling Slowly by Glen Hansgard & Marketa Irglova

2. Amazing Grace (My Chains are Gone) by Chris Tomlin

3. 1234 by Feist

4. Basket Case by Green Day

5. Stop & Stare by OneRepublic

Top Ten Faves of the Moment

1. Anyone Else But You by Michael Cera & Ellen Page (Moldy Peaches version is also my fav)

2. God’s Gonna Cut You Down by Johnny Cash

3. Good Riddance by Green Day

4. I Will Not be Silent by David Crowder Band (Deliver Me, Foreverandever, and You Are My Joy are also Crowder favs)

5. Rise by Eddie Vedder

6. Sunday Bloody Sunday by U2 (One, Beautiful Day, 40… tough to narrow it to a few U2 songs)

9. Chanukah Song by Adam Sandler (I love Sandler songs!)

10. Where Everybody Knows Your Name by Gary Portnoy (Yes, this is the Cheers theme song)

OK, so I don’t have just 10 favorites. I could list 50 songs here and not cover all the best stuff. But this is a good start.
