The All-Star Glass Fairy came-by the house yesterday and bestowed new, crack-free windshields in both the Subaru and the Malibu! Pics when I get home, cause I know you're so excited.

rock and roll hoochie-who?

Shan was singing 'Hang-on Sloopie' this morning, so I had to Cliff Claven her with the tidbit that Rick Derringer of R&R Hoochie Coo fame is the guy on guitar in Sloopie. This resulted in a blank stare from her, which resulted in the following from me...

space invaders

Shannon and Desi found this in their never-ending quest for (talk about) electronic pop music. This song is predestined for some new technology commercial where some hipsters fall in love while half a world apart, but still has some boppy merit.

finally remembered to search for this old/new obsession.

when I was a kid, I loved this band's music. It wasn't til I was an adult that I started remembering/realizing that Slade was responsible for all of these songs I liked.

In particular, I held onto the refrain of "run run away" (below) my entire life, and just now discovered it was a Slade song. I've sung it to so many record store people to no avail...Basically I feel as if the saran wrap on my subconscious was just peeled back to overwhelm me with all kinds of til-now elusive leftover treasure that I've been always-forgetting to investigate!

...Shannon survived Budgie, and I think the kid's be on board with a few months of Slade sing-a-long action, so I hope the neighborhood can deal.
