Iron Deejay

…in which I take you on a trip… through the mind, inner space and time itself.  In the past few weeks, I’ve had the good fortune of recovering some first blog entries going back to 2003 where Suzy and I took a long-delayed honeymoon to Amsterdam for two glorious weeks.  I could regale you with my writings forever, but instead, let us take the quest to enlightenment, self-discovery as we travel through giddiness, joy, peace, love, bemusement, reflection, questioning, anxiety, paranoia, panic, anger, badassery and ultimately resolution — the kind that generally leads to three grand slam breakfast skillets at Denny’s around 2am and about 13 boxes of Nerds.

This extra-special mix includes:

  1. Electric Light Orchestra – I’m Alive
  2. Elmore James – Hawaiian Boogie
  3. Poi Dog Pondering – Living With the Dreaming Body
  4. VHS or Beta – Heaven
  5. Duran Duran – New Moon on Monday
  6. The Verve – Sonnet
  7. The High Llamas – Painters Paint
  8. The Clash – Lost in the Supermarket
  9. Gordon Lightfoot – If You Could Read My Mind
  10. Lou Reed – How Do You Think It Feels
  11. The Police – Does Everyone Stare?
  12. Soul Coughing – True Dreams of Witchita
  13. Super Furry Animals – Run! Christian, Run!
  14. Grandaddy – A.M. 180
  15. Godspeed You Black Emperor! – Kicking Horse on Broken Hill
  16. Shriekback – The Reptiles and I
  17. System of a Down – X
  18. Cypress Hill – Cock the Hammer
  19. Danger Mouse – What More Can I Say? (Jay Z / Beatles Mashup)
  20. The White Stripes – Your Southern Can Is Mine
  21. Queen – All Dead, All Dead
