more information here.

Omar was the director of the All-Ohio State Fair Band from 1970-1998. I was a member of that band from 1997-2000. Omar was inspiration to every one of his students, including me. I credit him with teaching me a hell of a lot more than music. Probably in the coming day or so, I'll remember an example of this, but I can't right now.

I can't sleep, thanks to freaky dreams, so let's play a game! (how's that for a segue?)

I will play the first 20 random songs that I've purchased from the iTunes Music Store. The first six lyrics of each song will be listed here. How many songs can you identify with just the first six lyrics?

I'll spot you any non-words at the beginning (as in doo-wops, shoobie-doos, etc) and if the title falls within the first six lyrics, you'll get extra words so that you always have six words to work with.

[Poll #453734]

I love looking at people's icons, but I don't always *get* them - I often wonder stuff like, "Who's that guy?" or "Where's that quote from?" but I tend not to ask, for various reasons. So come on, here are my icons. Pick one (or more!) you're curious about, and I'll try to explain it. Or at least explain what I like about it.

Also... Green Day's American Idiot is an awesome album. In iTunes speak, every song rates 3 stars out of 5 or higher, which is unheard of unless it's a CD I mix myself. Go forth and procure it. So says me.
