I've seen a couple versions of this floating around, but this is the one I decided to do. It might take me a bit more than 10 days, because I'll probably only do it on weekdays.

Day One: Ten things you want to do some day.
Day Two: Nine things about yourself.
Day Three: Eight qualities you think are awesome in other people.
Day Four: Seven (semi)interesting things you've pondered or thought about recently.
Day Five: Six things you are glad you did.
Day Six: Five books/movies/tv series/etc that you'd recommend.
Day Seven: Four silly quirks
Day Eight: Three pet peeves
Day Nine: Two things for which you're proud of yourself.
Day Ten: One secret plan.

1. The Saturdays (Melendy Quartet) by Elizabeth Enright One of my favorites since I was a very little girl.
2. Bound for Glory A bio-pic based on Woody Guthrie's memoir.
3. Girl Genius The best webcomic out there. They've won the Hugo Award three times, and are generally awesome.
4. Holly Near A folk singer with a beautiful voice. One of my favorite things about her is how she advocates for all sorts of issues I'm passionate about, without sacrificing the music. HARP - A Time To Sing!, which she recorded with Arlo Guthrie, Ronnie Gilbert, and Pete Seeger in 1984 is one of my favorite live albums.
5. The Avengers This is the first movie in years that I've seen twice in the theatre. I like it so much that I was seriously tempted to see it three times in the theatre. I don't think I've ever even considered doing that before. the DVD will be purchased as soon as it's available.

Not only do I dislike the music Bjork makes, I also dislike the music she listens to.

To be fair, I might have liked these songs if they were interspersed with selections that were more my style. All in a row like this, though... Not for me.

What is your least favorite song by your favorite performer?

Mine is "Revolution #9" by the Beatles. They wrote other songs that were almost as pointless, but I can't think of a single one that is less fun to listen to.

All of them. :)

Oh, I can't pick that. Hmm...

If I have to chose just one then it's probably "If I Fell" from the Hard Day's Night soundtrack. (That album is my favorite overall.)

Oops, missed the "why" part of the question.
It's beautiful musically, and I like the ambiguity of the guy's motives and feelings.

I really couldn't.

(I don't watch TV or listen to commercial radio, so while I'm sure I've heard some of her music, I didn't know that was what I was hearing.)

This was a very full, fun weekend.

It started Friday. Sometime during the afternoon I learned that one of my favorite blues performers would be at the Helsinki club in Hudson on Friday night. Over dinner Tom & I decided we'd go to the show. I waffled a little, doubting that we'd be able to get there in time or that there'd be tickets left if we did. Tom didn't let me talk myself out of it. :)

The opening act was Scrapomatic. They were very good, but didn't quite cross the line into great. I think their biggest weakness was not enough variety of mood in the songs they chose.

The main act was Shemekia Copeland who put on a fabulous show. A good mix of up-beat and laid back songs, and she and the band seemed to be having just as much fun as the audience.

Saturday we got a (relatively) early start, and headed out to Brimfield, MA for one of biggest antique shows in the country. Mostly we just wandered about looking at all the cool old stuff. I bought a couple of pretty decanters for my cordials, and some old skeleton keys for crafting with. Tom bought some old books of the "how to fix anything" varity.

Getting dinner on the way home Saturday night was more effort than we wanted it to be. Nothing really sounded good, and finally we ended up at Arizona Pizza in Lee. It hit the spot.

Sunday I took as a lazy recovery day, doing a little dishes but not much else, but Tom kept running around. He did laundry, went rock climbing, and got together with some buddies.

Who is the greatest singer American popular music has produced? That is, pretty much every musical style except opera and other classical forms.

I'll cast my vote for Ella Fitzgerald.

The fact that this exists fills me with a geeky joy.

With Strings Attached
"What if you woke up and found yourself on a strange new planet...
sixteen years younger...
accompanied by people you have issues with...
possessing nothing but the clothes on your back and a musical instrument...
and totally clueless as to why you're there?"

I'm a couple of chapters in, and so far it's not bad.

Body: A little stuffed up, but nothing seems to hurt too much.

Stress Level: 2

Reading: Work: a Story of Experience by Louisa May Alcott

Hearing: My usual random mix of music.

Etsy Find: A make-up mystery bag. Seems like a fun idea.

Tonight's Project: Just the gym.

Randomness: Friday night I drove south to see The Carolina Chocolate Drops with my friend Katie. Their music is hard to describe, but wonderful. If you get a chance to see them I highly recommend taking it.

I find I like rap/hip-hop better in other languages. For example, I really enjoyed this NPR Tiny Desk Concert by Ana Tijoux.
