Wait, who sucks the most at this Earth Day business?

Happy Earth Day y’all.

I sat down to write this post and then had to chuckle as I took a retrospective look at how I have inadvertently commemorated thus far today:

-Took a shower that was far too long & hot (but needed after my late night)
-Drove around town doing a bunch of errands, SOLO, with the windows down (doesn’t that decrease fuel efficiency?)
-Accidentally left some lights on all morning
-Did a very small load of laundry to get some mustard out of my sweater I was wearing

I am ON A ROLL, folks. Environmentally conscious, that’s me! Next I think I will dump some used motor oil down the storm drain, maybe club a baby seal.

(Oh, and please don’t leave me hateful comments if you don’t understand the sarcasm)

The Outdoor Type” – The Lemonheads
(“I can’t go away with you on a rocking climbing weekend
What if something’s on TV and it’s never shown again
Just as well I’m not invited
I’m afraid of heights
I lied about being the outdoor type

Never learned to swim
Can’t grow a beard or even fight
I lied about being the outdoor type”)

Insects Rule” – Brendan Benson

I Like Birds” – Eels

The Green, Green Grass Of Home” – Johnny Cash, Live at Folsom Prison

In My Tree” – Pearl Jam

    Hateful comments? I laughed pretty damn hard when I pictured you clubbing a seal and surreptitiously pouring oil down a drain. Hahahaha!

    Priceless.

  • Seriously, are we the same person? That’s my favorite part of that Lemonheads song. In the words of Ben Fong-Torres: Craaazy.

  • haha. that sounds remarkably like my own annual earth day celebrations (not the clubbing-of-a-baby-seal part, of course).

  • Earth Day!!!
    How about an Earth YEAR. We really need to get behind those in power, both corporate and political(one in the same?) who actually live the values of Earth Day. Yeah, I know I’m preaching to the choir here, but if we band together to boycott and make uncool the great offenders, then we may get somewhere and not just for a day.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
