Something for the Ladies

I made a mix about two months ago that was all womens. Look how fuckin' clever I am--I entitled it "Estrogen & Tonic." It had the usual suspects on it: Feist, Regina Spektor, Cat Power, but also some harder stuff like Sleater-Kinney and the Duke Spirit, and finally some oddball shit by Vashti Bunyan and PJ Harvey.

This mix has proven to be very potent. I gave it to Mrs. Jimbromski, who made copies and gave it to her sister, and to Mrs. Jumbo Slice. Both are now pregnant. I was there when the sister-in-law came out of the bathroom with the test. I hugged her, taking care to avoid the urine -soaked implement, which she was still holding. Thank God pregnancy tests don't require stool samples, is all I have to say.

Anyway, the mix is powerful. It makes you fertile. Just burning it and handling it gave me a urinary tract infection, which I battled my way out of by immediately drinking two gallons of cranberry juice and watching Lifetime for 48 hours straight.

Here's two vids I found from PJ Harvey and Cat Power. Here's "This is Love." Polly probably cut herself in high school:



This is the one-and-only Cat Power with "Cross Bones Style." Chan Marshall has cleaned up her act in recent years to the point where she's actually doing some modeling for Chanel. But this song is from her Early Wacky period and she reminds me of Ally Sheedy from The Breakfast Club. Excellent song, interesting video, featuring some roller skating:

Lads,

Fucking hilarious line about the cranberry juice and Lifetime. Keep up the good work.

Danke, glad you liked.

We (DC Rock Club) saw Ms Power at the Pitchfork Festival in Chicago this summer, she was great. She played "Song for Bobby" which will be on the next album. Made my eyes water, I had to pretend it was dust.

I read that and thought, "Where's my Crue?" What have you people done to me?! I had to watch romantic comedies all weekend to compensate.

Don't worry, I'll post some new Crue tonight. I've fallen behind. Hang in there.
