The Monday after Notacon, lunch was a can of Campbell's bean with bacon soup, with rice-a-roni added to it. High in fat, salt and carbs! My stomach did not appreciate it as much as my taste buds did. At least it wasn't Denny's.
Album: This time 'round, I decided to do somethign different - I grabbed 10 Jonathan Coulton songs from his site that I didn't have.
- Tom Cruise Crazy
- Famous Blue Raincoat
- Skullcrusher Mountain
- I'm a Mason Now
- First of May
- I Feel Fantastic
- Monkey Shines
- The Big Boom
Genre: I firmly hold that JoCo's genre is "Internet Folk Music".
Similar Bands: Uh... Vaguely similar to Weird Al. A little bit of similarity to Voltaire. Also sounds somewhat like the easy listening soft rock that CHFI used to play in the 80s and 90s. But less irritatingly bland.
Review: 70% Hit rate, where "hit" means a song that I found myself singing to myself later. I already knew I liked JoCo's stuff, so this was just a top up in preparation for seeing him live at the end of May. Also, I wanted a copy of First of May before May 1st.
Playlist Potential: Humour, Singalong and various Driving Mixes will all likely get infusions of JoCo.
I completely failed to remember to bring leftovers in today. Hopefully tomorrow.
