Sunday October 25th, 2009

Alright. I was sick of quote-unquote "listening" to Charlie bitch on this thing about how normally uninteresting her solo shows turn out to be, to be frank, so we beat the crap out of each other this time. Figuratively.

For the next couple weeks we'll be pitted against each other: Old vs New. This week I had Old, & she had New. Which she claims is almost all country or hiphop. What?! None of my songs go slower than 125 beats per minute (bpm). We scored them against each other on song-by-song basis. Some of the winners were decided based on rock paper scissors results, because we have no impartial judge. Here are the results.

Less Than Jake - Boomtown -J (old)
Rancid - New Orleans -Ch (new)
winner: Charlie

Flogging Molly - Devil's Dance Floor -J (old
Bike For Three - Always I Will Miss You. Always You -Ch (new)
winner: Charlie

The Icarus Line - Kiss Like Lizard -J (old)
The Angry Dragons - Girlfriend -Ch (new)
winner: Jocelyn

Voivod - Rebel Robot -J (old)
Propagandhi - Potemkin City Limits -Ch (new)
winner: Charlie

One Day As A Lion - Wild International -J (old)
Shout Out Out Out Out - Coming Home -Ch (new)
winner: Jocelyn

Venetian Snares - Circle Pit

Johnny Cash Remixed - Leave That Junk Alone -Ch (new)
The Creepshow - Run For Your Life -J (old)
winner: Jocelyn

Romi Mayes - Somethin Goin On -Ch (new)
Novillero - A Little Tradition -J (old)
winner: Jocelyn

Wab Kinew - Last Word -Ch (new)
Tinariwen - Timatent Tilay -J (old)
winner: Charlie

Grand Analog - I Play My Kazoo -Ch (new)
Thao & The Get Down Stay Down - Cool Yourself -J (new)
no winner: I really wanted to play Thao despite being new

So the overall winner is.....!: No one. We tied. We're too nice to each other. We need an impartial judge.

HOWEVER! Get ready for next week cause I've been cataloguing so many cd's in the CKUW compound my ears are bleeding & I have blisters & callouses & the like... I have heavy artillery. Charlie had better bone up.
