Posting to a blogspot blog feels vaguely like I'm living in a 2003 flashback. With that in mind, I'm going to participate in some blog memes from about that time. First up is the Friday Random Ten.

The rule is: create a random setlist in your music player. Post the first ten songs that come up. No shame!

  1. William Orbit - A Hazy Shade of Random
  2. Rush - Vapor Trail
  3. Freezepop - Robotron 2002 (All Your Base Are Belong To Us Remix)
  4. Netherlands Bach Collegium - Johann Sebastian Bach: Cantata #110, Unser Mund Sei Voll Lachens - Ach Herr, Was Ist Ein Menschenkind
  5. Pearl Jam - Even Flow
  6. Hans Fagius - Johann Sebastian Bach: O Lamm Gottes, Unschuldig, BWV 1095
  7. Deep Purple - Don't Make Me Happy
  8. Friedrich Gulda - Ludwig van Beethoven: Piano Sonata #10 in G, First Movement
  9. George Frideric Handel: Israel in Egypt, Part Two
  10. Leonard Cohen - The Gypsy's Wife




What does "rolls a hoover" mean, anyway?

"Roll a hoover" was coined by Christopher Locke, aka RageBoy (not worksafe). He enumerated some Hooverian Principles, but that might not be too helpful. My interpretation is that rolling a hoover means doing something that you know is stupid without any clear sense of what the outcome will be, just to see what will happen. In my case, I quit my job in an uncertain economy to try to start a business. I'm still not sure how that will work out.
