iPod song of the week – Black Crowes

I’m in a medical frame of mind at the moment, fasting for a fun, fun day at the hospital tomorrow. But don’t cry for me, I get sweet drugs and they release me the same day! And I’m not really fasting, I’m enjoying popsicles and jello. Mmmmm, bouillon….. But so I thought I’d use that as the jumping off point for our iPod Song of the Week.

Remember The Black Crowes? Before they became tabloid fodder due to movie star marriage (just like Remy Zero only with actual sales)? I was never that into them, actually, because they were a retro version of stuff I still listen to, so I didn’t find a real need for them in my collection. But I’ve always had a soft spot for this song. It sounds like bluesy 70’s yet somehow fresh and original at the same time. And the theme fits right into my medical motif. Only I’m not sure their drugs were as legal as the ones I’m going to get.

Anyway, have fun in my absence and don’t even think of messing with the J-Ball while I’m incapacitated on a gurney. The person accompanying me to my procedure will be equipped with my Blackberry so no funny stuff. Well, funny stuff is OK, actually. And along those lines, I was thinking: if anything should happen to me, I’d like the Top 10 Commenters to be on a reality show to determine who wins this blog. Pious B can be the hostess. It’s the least I could do since I’m missing her Birthday barbecue (they’re not serving jello). Happy birthday, Pi! Be tough but fair.

    Love this song! I was actually singing it in the car just the other day.
    They had some cool stuff. I used to rock out to them quite often.

    Good luck Bec!

  2. Soxy says:

    Good luck!

    Just in case we do have to have the reality show, can we Jell-o wrestle for the blog on the last episode? Orange, of course.

  3. Becca says:

    Thanks, KP!

    Soxy, I had green today. It blew. So I heartily endorse orange. Let the best jello wrestler win my blog!

  4. KP says:

    Orange makes me gag. Tastes like baby aspirin.

    Make it red Jello Soxy and you’re on!

  5. Pious B says:

    We missed you yesterday! Never fear, I ate enough for the the two of us.
    I only emcee reality shows if I can rename the contestants. Feel good, Buckwild!

  6. Soxy says:

    I can do Red, KP. I’m an equal opportunity Jell-o lover.

  7. Becca says:

    Pi, thanks! And I’m honored to get Buckwild. After all, Becca is the second whitest name in America.

    Attention jello lovers and others: I survived, the drugs are wearing off, I’m discombobulated and yet I suddenly remembered I had a blog. Thanks for being willing to take over in a pinch.

  8. Alex says:

    I’m a big fan of this blog, but if there’s a contest to see who takes it over, I forfeit. I don’t want the responsibility.

  9. kb says:

    darnit, now I want Jell-0!

    Orange is yummy. So are baby aspirin. Flavor any drug like baby aspirin and I’ll chow down happily. Were any of your drugs flavored yummy, Becca?

    I’ll bet you’re sleeping now, though ….

  10. Becca says:

    So noted, Alex. But feel free to do the reality show anyway.

    Well, kb, I didn’t get to taste them, they were all via IV. And alas, I slept all day so I’m up right now. Just for kicks, I’m watching Sicko online.

    Apropos of that, I paid $10 for my whole procedure, including the happy drugs.

  11. Alex says:

    Ten dollars? Such a bargain, I may have to get a few for myself at that price!

  12. Soxy says:

    Alex, are you really turning down the prospect of Jell-O wrestling with KP?

  13. Alex says:

    Soxy, Becca says I can do the reality show anyway. Of course, my wife reads this blog, too, and I’d better find out first what she has to say about this.

  14. KP says:

    Oh, I was planning on wrestling just Soxy.

    Feel free to watch Alex. I am sure Mr. KP and Mr. Soxy would sit next to you.
