Friday Random 10: The Quickening

I'm headed down to Palatka in about an hour, and if any of you have been to P-Town, you know I'm in for some high-falutin', rebel flag-wavin', suckerpunch-Bubba-and-kick-Grandma-outta-the-trailer good times.

Yeah, my mom moved just outside the small Florida burg a few years back, and even your average Floridian looks at Palatka as "too redneck." And man, that's saying something. Let's see what the Friday Random 10 foresees happening during my three-day jaunt to 1957.

1) U2, "Smile"
2) U2, "Elvis Presley & America"
3) The Pogues, "Fiesta"
4) Outkast, "Movin' Cool (The After Party)"
5) Homestar Runner, "Everybody Everybody"
6) Rod Stewart, "Forever Young"
7) Outkast, "Gasoline Dreams"
8) The Pogues, "Tuesday Morning"
9) Duran Duran, "New Moon on Monday"
10) Pearl Jam, "Immortality"

Hmmm... "Fiesta," "Smile," "Movin' Cool" - sounds alright. Rod Stewart, though? Unless that means I'm going to score with Rachel Hunter, I think I'm doomed. (And, for the record, I have no idea how that song got in my iPod).

Wow, I think my playlist is from 1957 too.

Palatka is the (self-proclaimed) bass fishing capital of the world. I'm serious. They have signs up.

Have you ever read or seen "Big Trouble"?
