from Dog Days of August to Don't Drink the Water

Day 196, Session 69:
When/Where: Thursday January 4th - At the desk for the first hour of the work day.
First song: Dog Days of August by Garrison Keillor
Last full song: Don't Drink the Water by Dave Matthews Band
Progress: 961-973 of 4785
Total Songs Heard: 829

Let's get right down to business shall we? Lots of advice coming from these song titles, telling me what not to do. Let's break them down:

Don't - Jewel: Yes, more Jewel. Just Don't? I need a little more clarification than that. Since it's Jewel I'm assuming she means one of two things: a) Don't listen to my music, or 2) Don't keep looking at my bewbs!

Don't Ask Me I'm Only The President - Badly Drawn Boy: Wouldn't be surprised if the current president actually used this answer under oath. I'm pretty sure I agree with BDB here. Let's hope this one is the last.

Don't Ask Me Why - Billy Joel: Ok, I won't ask, I'll just point out here that Christie Brinkley is still bringing it.

Don't be afraid of the dark - Y & T: Thanks guys, I'm not 6. This isn't really a problem anymore. I'm assuming if you're still afraid of the dark Y&T must stand for Young and Terrified.

Don't Be Afraid Of Your Anger - Clem Snide: This is good advice. I am not afraid of my anger. I embrace it. Revel in it even. My goal is to make other people afraid of my anger. I think it's working. You should also know that this song contains a fantastic line:

Don't be afraid of your anger. I'll eat it with mustard and wine.
I have no idea what it means, but it's fantastic.

Don't Change Your Plans - Ben Folds Five: This is advice I did not follow.
Don't Change Your Plans (live)
- Ben Folds Five: Ok, technically maybe I did follow the advice of the song, since it specifically advises to not move to LA. Of course I was never really planning on moving to LA.

Don't close your eyes
- Kix: I don't know how you guys sleep, but I'm an eye closer.

Don't Drink the Water - Dave Matthews Band: I believe in good hydration and generally drink 6-8 cups of water per day, so shut up DMB.
Don't Drink The Water - Dave Matthews Band: What's that you say? There's blood in the water? Ugh, I wish you had told me that 4 cups of AB-Negative ago.

You should go see Grindhouse, where "Don't" features prominently and hilariously.

Hot Fuzz is also an amazing moviefilm that everyone who liked Shaun of the Dead should see.

You know, while you're open to advice provided through electronic sources.

My only fear with Grindhouse is that I'm too antsy to sit in a theater for 3+ hours.

I have heard good things on Hot Fuzz and plan on taking the wife to see it this weekend.

Grindhouse is a butt-numbingly long movie, but I found it to be worth it (even though we went to a 10:35PM show and got out around 2AM).

I'd say wait for the DVD, but I'm not sure that it will have the same impact on the small screen. Wait, do you have a giant HDTV? If so, watch it on that, and get up and walk around if you feel your nether regions are lacking in blood flow.

Also I hate you for having a giant HDTV. Unless you don't, in which case, wouldn't it be nice to have a giant HDTV?

Yeah, that'd be sweet.

I do have a giant tv. Quite giant indeed. I'll send you pictures. It's awesome.
