Well, it's Friday and you know what that means. Yes, my Oriental fille de woohoo! Fah Lo Suee and I are heading off to [insert your own vaguely smutty and/or political joke here -- it's been a tiring week and I'm frankly out of gas].
So posting by moi will more than likely be sporadic for a little while.
But in the meantime, here's another little project for us all:
Most Memorable Post-Elvis Record Referencing One of the Deadly Sins in Either Its Title or Lyrics!!!
Okay, just so you don't have to look them up -- said sins are Pride, Envy, Gluttony, Lust, Anger, Greed and Sloth.
I think I've probably mentioned this somewhere down the line, but one of my great regrets in life is that I never had seven kids so that I could name one after each of them. I think "Sloth Simels" really has a ring to it, don't you?
In any case, my totally top of my head Top Five is:
5. MC5 -- Teenage Lust
4. Billy Bremner -- Green With Envy
3. The Bonzo Dog Band -- Suspicion
Anger + envy + lust = jealousy, which of course is what the song is about. The Bonzos version is the definitive one, of course, and included mostly for that priceless monologue in the middle. "If you have been deceiving me...well, it's a neat bit of jiggery-pokery."
2. Elvis Costello -- I'm Not Angry.
Uh...yes, he was, actually. Pissed as hell, actually.
And the numero uno ode to les septs classical no-nos quite obviously is...
1. Fairport Convention -- Sloth
For fairly obvious reasons, I think.
Alrighty then -- what would your choices be?
[Shameless Blogwhore: My parallel Cinema Listomania -- theme: scariest or most disturbing movie ostensibly aimed at kids -- is now up over at Box Office. As always, if you could see your way to going over there and leaving a snark-filled comment, it would get me in good with management and thus facilitate an upcoming trip to Paris in the company of a certain shady dame. Thanks!]
