Listening booth — “Charlie Sheen”

Listening booth — “Charlie Sheen”

Listening Booth, Music
Charlie Sheen hasn't just killed the golden goose with his most recent public rant against Two and a Half Men co-creator Chuck Lorre among others, he's pissed on its corpse and lit it on fire. CBS has canceled production for the rest of the season, although they have not killed the show outright (damn!). Anyway, I can think of no better song to play right now than "Charlie Sheen" from the King's X album Please Come Home... Mr. Bulbous, so here it is. Here are the lyrics, for those scoring at home: It all works out It all works out It all works out It all works out I'm waiting for a word beyond our history And paper tigers dance about within the mystery Clover of substance I can't put my finger on And stepping over sidewalk cracks I'm catching the last one The silent wa...

Shuffle Along (aka Name That Tune) – 1/13/11

For those who have not played along before, it’s simple: I pick 10 random tracks, you name the song and the band.  Guess correctly and win nothing.  Well, except a link back to your site if you have one.  (Link juice!)  And no cheating with Google please, there’s enough dishonesty in the world today. "I woke up with my head on the floor / In a windowless cell, a room full of doors / I got lost, now I'm so far behind / Took so much advice, forgot my own mind" "The woman from the supermarket ran to call the cops / He must be high on something, someone said." "We can move with savage grace / To the rhythms of the night / Cool and remote like dancing girls / In the heat of the beat and the lights" "It was an evening I shared with the sun / To find out where we belong" "I never

OK kids, I'll be pretty busy this week so to pass the time I'm going to throw out more lyrics for you.  It's simple: name the song and the band, and win nothing!  And no cheating please, there's enough dishonesty in the world today. 1. "In the thirteen months I've spent here / with my manuscript and rhymes / I've paid in case for foolish pleasures / mother dear you'd call them crimes" 2. "Like a gangster / on the run / you will stagger homeward / to your precious one" 3. "Don't give us none of your aggravation / We had it with your discipline" - Elton John, "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting" (via Facebook comment) 4. "Fifteen years in the academy / he was like no cadet they'd ever seen" - Anthrax, "I Am the Law" (Raiden2332) 5. "Don't be afraid / I didn't mean to scar

Words.  Who has time for them, right?  I know I don't, and you probably don't either.  So, inspired by Jason Huff's AutoSummarize project of the 100 most-downloaded copyright-free books, I decided to gather a broader sampling of humanity's greatest achievements in the form of books, speeches, songs and other works, and run them through Microsoft Word's ever-handy AutoSummarize feature.  Prepare to expand your mind in 10-sentence fragments.

I'm going to steal something that Jess ran on his blog many times - name that tune.  It's simple: I post a lyric from the next random batch of songs that shows up on my iPod, and you try to guess the song and artist.  If you guess correctly and have a website, you get a free link (otherwise, just your name).  You just can't buy that kind of publicity.  If this goes well I'll do it again.  Of course if no one guesses anything I'll just shitcan the whole idea.  Let's play!  (and no cheating by looking them up!) 1. "She can move you and improve you with her love and her devotion.  And she'll thrill you and she'll chill you, but you're headed for commotion." - KISS, ??? 2. "Tied to a chair, and the bomb is ticking.  This situation was not of your picking." 3. "I hang my head and I adverti
