Today I’m guest posting over at Can I Get A Bottle of Whine With My Morning Quiet Time?! Kate is an awesome person as well as hilarious! I think that some day we are going to discover that we are somehow related, because often we think alike. If you’re going over to check out my post and have never read her blog, well, you need to.
Six important facts you need to know:
1) She’s hilarious (I said that already).
2) She’s the Mom of three beautiful children.
3) Her blog has the longest title of all the blogs I read.
4) She is one of my favorite people on Twitter. I’ve snorted pop out of my nose more than a few times reading her Tweets!
5) She is the second result that comes up if you search 80s pink Huffy bike on Google images (I didn’t believe her, until I tried it).
6) The first post I ever read from her was entitled Dear Naked Barbie Doll Lying in My Hallway, and I’ve been hooked ever since.
So go on, don’t be shy! Go follow the linky dink HERE to read my post. Come on, you know wanna!
Now, for the Music portion. Today’s Twisted Mixtape Tuesday is all about the best cover songs. How could I NOT do this? I had no choice because Jen said I had to. I had to do a little research to complete my list, but I think I’ve put together a pretty good one.
1 Boys of Summer-The Ataris
You knew I had to go here. When I did the summer vacation one last week, I stated that I love the Ataris version of this more than the Don Henley one. Why? I don’t know, I think it’s the hard rock feel of their version. Don’t be hatin.
4 Land of Confusion-Disturbed
Originally we were fans of this song because it featured puppets of our politicians at the time, and was sung by Genesis. Then Disturbed remade it years later. I love both versions!
5 Hurt-Johnny Cash
The song combined with the video really makes you want to, well, go shoot yourself. But it IS a fabulous cover of the original by Nine Inch Nails. I couldn’t find a good video of this song, so no link.
There’s my list, however weird it is. What would be on YOUR list? Be sure to check out Twisted Mixtape Tuesday at *Jen Kehl: My Skewed View.
*I was fully aware that this post was going up Monday night, instead of Tuesday morning. I goofed and by the time I realized that I didn’t really want to rewrite this. Sooooo… if it’s Monday night and you’re thinking about heading over to Jen’s website and checking it out, keep in mind it might not yet be up! This has nothing to do with her being a slacker, because she’s not. 😉
