52 Weeks of Music and Lunch: week 7 (Jonathan Coulton)

The Food

Sodium Suicide!

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.

The Music

Album: This time 'round, I decided to do somethign different - I grabbed 10 Jonathan Coulton songs from his site that I didn't have.

I grabbed:

  1. Tom Cruise Crazy

  2. Famous Blue Raincoat

  3. Skullcrusher Mountain

  4. Ikea

  5. I'm a Mason Now

  6. First of May

  7. I Feel Fantastic

  8. Octopus

  9. Monkey Shines

  10. 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.
