Spam and Eggs

We hate spam.**

Can we tell you how much we hate and resent the lowlife scum who spend all day trying to post comments to Mirandala.org on the topics of viagra, cheap airline fares, games of texas hold ’em, and naughty, naughty teens? Do these people actually get a lot of business from spamming blogs? Are any of you, our 20 or so regular readers, actually tempted to buy paxil or phentermine because of spam comments on this site? Yeah, I didn’t think so.

Anyway. This blog post is our way of paying homage to Kitten’s Spaminator and its sister plugin – for they have Freed Us From Spam. [Insert Choir of Angels Here] Now when the unwashed masses are tempted to post 57 comments on the topic of anxiety disorders or “platinum-celebs,” they get stopped where they lurk – rejected and booted by the Spaminator without yours truly having to delete them all by hand. Huzzah!

Ok. We now return you to your regular non-techie/geeky blog.

** Unless it’s part of Spamalot.

    So this is not really a comment on Spam (though congratulations on its demise!). This is more an official inquiry for the music loving folks at Mirandala.org. If, like me, you were about to embark on a 14 hour drive to North Carolina for the holidays, and if, like me, you had already exhausted your complete collection of Indigo Girls and Melissa Ferrick CD’s…and IF, like me, you wanted to have something new to listen to on said 14 hour drive, some great artist that you want to be able to develop a deep loving relationship with…who would you recommend? I am planning a trip to Borders this week to prepare for THE DRIVE. (Any trip that amounts to 14 hours must be typed in all capital letters.) Who do you love? I need a new musical relationship here….

    Hmm. Road trip music is, of course, partly dependent on your current mood (I sense from your recent listening selections that you may be exploring the genre of acoustic and occasionally-fe-mulleted musicians), however, without knowing for sure your mood, *this* half of the staff of Mirandala.org still feels comfortable recommending the following:

    1) Girlyman – Remember Who I Am. We LOVE Girlyman. You will, too.

    2) Nik Kershaw – To Be Frank. Remember Nik Kershaw? He wrote “Wouldn’t It Be Good” (from the Pretty in Pink soundtrack) – this is his latest album (made after a decade-long break from recording) and it’s fantabulous.

    3) Jen Foster – Everybody’s Girl. Jen Foster is on the verge of a breakthrough. This is a great debut album.

    4) The Nields – Play. It’s a sister act! And it’s good, old-fashioned singer-songwriter music.

    5) K’s Choice – Almost Happy. This one’s a double album – 1/2 new stuff and 1/2 live concert. If you haven’t heard K’s Choice before, this is a great introduction. Sarah Bettens’ voice is amazing.

    Hmm…Courtney probably has more suggestions for you…but hope this gets you started. Have fun driving!
