I know why Trike's song - Luislang - is on Pollen's list - “Die w√™reld is ’n luislang wat aanhou en aanhou druk.” [The world is a python that continues and continues with its squeezing]

Hmmmm... maybe that is why we are not posting - it's the bloody python we call work ethic ;-)

My favourite Trike song is of course called Skaamkoekie - "Mamma het ’n souttert in die louoond bewaar / dis dubbel die plesier van ’n kerkbasaar" - they *also* sing about other pleasures, the type that calls for the hose-pipe, but let's not go there ;-)

You can download the mp3 for Skaamkoekie from the following link (it is under Trike, obviously)

playing with lists

for a blog with four members, we are pretty useless in posting. maybe because there is no use ranting about inevitables - we all knew the chimp would win and we all know what he will do. an intelligent outcome in the US elections joined my ha-ha list along with such stalwarts as world peace and equality for all: it ain't gonna happen.

enough deep stuff, let's get to the important bits. i condensed the 60 odd songs in my current favourite playlist into my 10 favourite songs to listen to... right now! the order of the 10 is not, however, a ranking.

Spiritual - Johnny Cash
Neighbourhood #1 (Tunnels) - The Arcade Fire
Shanty for the Arethusa - The Decemberists
I'm happy but you don't like me - Asobi Seksu
The Petrol Wife - Anita Lane
Broken and Blue - Fembots
Hiding all away - Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds
Luislang - Trike
Song of Hasuike - Kokeshi Doll
24-hour Store - The Handsome Family
