My Playlist

I have eclectic taste in music — I like just about anything except rap and hip hop, which aren't really music at all in my humble opinion but chanting of poems or something!  But, I've never really liked listening to the same artist song after song.  So, I finally got an iPod Nano, and I set it to Shuffle.  I thought it would be fun to write down an hour's worth of music in its shuffledness!

Riders in the Sky - Burl Ives (3:07)
Teddy O'Neill - Innisfree Ceoil (2:33)
In Dulci Jubilo - Ludwig G├╝ttler (2:40)
1812 Overture: Grand Finale (3:41)
Prince of Denmark's March (Trumpet Voluntary in D Major) - Clarke (2:49)
The Glenside No. 1 & 2 - The Glenside Ceilidh Band (2:09)
Ballinastoe - Irish Ceili Band (3:27)
Last Rose of Summer - Claire Hamilton (2:37)
Jesu Mein Herzens Freud - Bach (3:10)
Gierran (Enchantment) - Wimme Saari (4:19)
Waltz in C-sharp Minor - Chopin (3:15)
The Show Must Go On - Three Dog Night (3:28)
For the Love of a Princess (Braveheart) - James Horner (4:06)
Marie's Wedding - Van Morrison & The Chieftains (3:16)
Baneasa's Green Glade/Mominsko Horo - Planxty (5:58)
O'Sullivan's March - The Chieftains (4:01)
Wonderful One - Hawaii (2:39)
Saint Mary's, Church Street Garret Barry, The Battering Ram Kitty Goes A-Milking, Rakish Paddy - The Chieftains (6:53)

As you can see, I'm very fond of Celtic and classical music, but I also have Egyptian, Nordic, Hawaiian, Japanese and Cajun music, as well as classic rock and folk songs on my iPod, even some steel drums.  Don't you just love modern technology?  I'll bet there's not a radio station in the country that plays that mix!

Information about Gonorrhea Lectim (joke)

The Center for Disease Control has issued a warning about a new virulent strain of this old disease.  The disease is called Gonorrhea Lectim, pronounced "Gonna re-elect 'em," and it is a terrible obamanation.

This disease is contracted through dangerous and high risk behavior involving putting your cranium up your rectum.  Many victims contracted it in 2008...but now most people, after having been infected for the past 1-2 years, are starting to realize how destructive the sickness is.

It's sad because Gonorrhea Lectim is easily cured with a new drug just coming on the market called Votemout.  You take the first dose in 2010 and the second dose in 2012 and simply don't engage in such behavior; otherwise, it could become permanent and eventually wipe out all life as we know it.

Several states are already on top of this, like Virginia and New Jersey, and apparently now Massachusetts, with many more seeing the writing on the wall.

Please pass this important message on to all those bright folk you really care about.
