Possibly, the greatest shuffle that’s ever happened to me..?!

1. Rolling Stones: ‘Rocks Off’
2. Michael Hurley (& gang): ‘Driving Wheel’
3. Randy Newman: ‘Uncle Bob’s Midnight Blues’ (it’s funny, these tracks use the words ‘go down’ to different themes! ;p)
4. The Roots: ‘Dear God 2.0’
5. Wussy: ‘Mayflies’
6. Al Green: ‘Here I am (Come and Take Me)’
7. DJ Shadow: ‘** Transmission 1’
8. The Indestructible Beat of Soweto: ‘Indoda Yejazi Elimnyama’
9. Lil Wayne: ‘A Milli’
10. Elizabeth Cook: ‘Mama’s Funeral’

As I carried on through, it went through a lot more good songs—including, Kanye West’s ‘Monster’—I should use shuffle more often!

TV Reviews:

Ben 10: My girlfriend’s son is hooked on this show—basically, a couple of young children and (for moral grounding) their grandpa are on a never-ending quest to kill every alien (which all seem to be evil) that, coincidently, happens to cross their path. The animation is good enough and is neither too hyperactive nor blasé. If you can get over the irritating constant action-over-semantics you may just appreciate this show for what it does well—holds kids attention! ***
