What a lot of useless garbage I don't need

So after the earlier posts about Diana Anaid, it popped into my head: maybe I should do an Artist of the Week sorta thing. Get the media server back up and working (with NAMED ACCOUNTS, damnit), so I can share out the songs for people to listen to (you should still buy the discs, damnit). Every week, pick an artist, say the one I'm currently listening to over and over for example, and post a song per day, lyrics and commentary.

I'd have to set up a filter for that, I suspect most of you wouldn't give a damn.

The big problem for me, tho, is that I'm not sure I could keep it interesting, even if I kept it going. I mean, my Favorite Artists playlist has people like Anaid and Coulton, who you probably aren't that familiar with, but they're in there with Mike Doughty, Jason Webley, Evanescence, Cake, BNL, etc. If the point is just to say "this is who I'm listening to now!" that's what the Music field above is for. If it's to introduce y'all to artists I'm liking but you may not have heard of, I'm gonna have to start digging for new ones. And I don't think the duty free shop downstairs is gonna help that much (by the time something ends up there, it's passed thru a dozen buyers' hands and they've all rejected it). Hm.


Diana Anaid - Dumb Opinion

So much for staying out of trouble, if I have to keep away from you.
It doesn't seem like I'm dealing with a criminal,
I don't feel like I need to be rescued,
I'm not captive, it isn't world news.
I'm not a hostage just because I'm with you.

Problem is, that it should've been a big secret,
but I knew we couldn't keep it.
Everybody else says this will be too dangerous for me,
what a lot of useless garbage I don't need,
I'll take a chance and see.
And it's definitely started up something
you needed, just like me,
and I want it to be serious,
so there won't be anyone but you from now on.
Anybody else's dumb opinion.

So much for trying to keep it simple and between us,
without a big fuss.
It doesn't seem like I'm harbouring a criminal intention,
just a bad crush.
It's not a front page, a news headline,
I'm not endangered just because I'm here tonight.

but I knew we couldn't keep it.

Why don't they just leave us alone,
with all the guilty thoughts we call our own?
Why don't they just leave us alone?
