As ishte reminded me, I don't talk on here often enough. I'd like to start posting at least a few lines every weekday, we'll see how that goes.

Talking in the car this morning about "nerd rock" and geek songs in general, how "She Blinded Me with Science" was one of the first. The closest 'popular' music any more is Weird Al Yankovic, most of it's moved online - Jonathan Coulton, Luke Ski & Tom Smith & the FuMP. Then again, most of that target audience is online anyway, so it kinda makes sense.

Then we compared JoCo favorites - gazerwolf likes "Betty and Me", I mentioned "Skullcrusher Mountain" and "Code Monkey" and "Re: Your Brains" and "I Feel Fantastic" (that's the one I couldn't remember the name of). If I had to pick just one favorite though, it'd probably be "Creepy Doll".

I still can't figure out why I love instrumental Bluegrass music, though the second someone opens their mouth I want to turn it off. Mad playing skills good, twangy vocals bad.

ETA: I've gotta be more careful handing out paychecks, if I don't know the face then don't be embarrassed to ask for ID. Guy brought back a check this morning that wasn't his. When I'd asked him yesterday afternoon if he was (name) he said yes, so I handed it to him. There's apparently a language barrier, about the only English word he knows is "yes". Guess I failed my Insight vs. Bluff check.
