uh, well, I thought it was kinda neat...

Okay, random thread on the Toytown Boards: I actually wrote an answer, even if I didn't post it, and it's too late to revive a dead thread now, besides it may reveal more than I want to share with that crowd, I dunno. But I can tell you guys, right?

And it was fun. So I did it twice. And now I'm tagging the music-heads among you, Kel, ~d, landismom, elemmaciltur, cmhl... I'd also like to see what James would do with this, though I know he's not real into memes. Anyway, it is of course optional for everyone, har as if that needed to be said. Like what, I'm gonna come to your house and hold your fingers to the keyboard? Anyway. Music memes are cool.

So uh, yeah. I did wind up taking Kel's advice after all. I got the barbell done, though. Cool story there - I went to the craft store and they had the same suggestion KimberlyDi had, though it turned out none of their styrofoam balls were big enough. They did have some hollow plastic garden balls, but no black paint they could sell me. So the shop lady told me she'd paint them herself and I could pick them up in the afternoon. Then when I did, she glue-gunned them onto the dowell for me. SO very nice. The moral of this story is: BUY LOCAL!

So then the song du jour of the day would be any of the above. No, wait - it's Ani diFranco's Studying Stones, because I just discovered that one today and it's my new favorite song. Totally cool = Righteous Babe puts some of the songs up so you can listen to them before you buy the album. Love that. Even better, I found Studying Stones, available for download at amazon. Free! Woot!

OMI dear GOD! How did you DO this?! HOLY MOLEY! I will sure as $#@! try-but, JEEZ! this looks so HARD!
Whoa.
did you cheat? did you have the CDs in front of you?

OK. working on it...Peas.

YES I had the CDs in front of me, and checked the artists' websites and everything. I limited it to songs I had actually heard, but you don't have to. Also, it's just the titles, the song itself doesn't have to answer the question, just the title.
