I just found a bunch of 13-year-old Molly's mix CDs, back from the days when each song took twenty minutes to download on Napster over your dial-up connection. Here's a taste of what I was listening to during my (in hindsight, extremely awesome) formative years.

1. Lost Prophets - Shinobi vs. Dragon Ninja (???)
2. Joan Jett and the Blackhearts - Bad Reputation
3. The Vapors - Turning Japanese
4. Weird Al - One More Minute
5. Ween - Teenage Dirtbag
6. Tori Amos - Little Plastic Castle
7. Weezer - El Scorcho*
8. Weeer - Undone (Sweater Song)*
9. Violent Femmes - Kiss Off*
10. Marcy Playground - Sex and Candy
11. Our Lady Peace - Clumsy
12. Goo Goo Dolls - Black Balloon
13. Five for Fighting - Superman**
14. Bush - Glycerine ***
15. Bush/ random artist remix of Glycerine

* Dear Phil Yates, thank you. I would never have figured out how to be this cool on my own.
** Embarrassing!
*** Whatever, Bush is awesome.

This is fun... I might post more. Please don't judge me... I turned out alright in the end.

Long time, no see

April and May passed by in a blur of injuries, moving, buying a car, starting a new job, etc. Yep, things are different.

My new address is House of Fang, which delights me to no end. I'm planning on hanging around Lex for a little while... we'll see how it goes.

Right now, I'm trying to pick up gardening. People are surprisingly generous when it comes to giving away plants. Megh and I are hoping to get some day lilies in the ground by tomorrow. See, our neighbors are both landscapers, and our shabby renter's yard is a blight on our otherwise well-manicured street. But we're working on it, we promise.

Truth be told, I'm awful homesick. Hopefully I'll figure out my path soon. Or, a path, anyway. A path lined with decorative plants!
