Going for the gold...

Olympic gold...that's all well and good, but I've won better. That's right, I am standing atop the podium of Eileen's guess what the hell song these crazy ass lyrics are from contest - sometimes called the who-wants-free-song post.

I want to thank my parents and my coaches. They've always believed in me. Also, Google...you are my friend.

Seriously, Eileen threw down with Elvis Costello lyrics. Good choice, but Elvis and I grew up together. Well, one of us grew up...the other one of us has too much time on his hands and just happened to know the lyrics and Googled the rest. It was fun though.

Mostly, I'm just sort of excited to skew Eileen's iTunes new suggestions thing. Now there will be random suggestions to buy tunes from uber-pop, super-hot princesses when she logs into iTunes. Sometimes it's not only about just winning. Sometimes messing with others is equally important!

It's good to be golden...

Boris will be delighted. What song did you pick as your winnings?

PS - my dad is still waiting to whoop your dad's ass...

It's far too embarassing to repeat.

Thanks to you, my iTunes now thinks I might like to purchase "Toxic" by Britney Spears. It's like I just got kicked out of the cool kids table in the cafeteria.

No...if you brush it off and call it irony, you'll be fine.

The lovely Tristan Prettyman does a great cover of that very 'Toxic' song and she's able to remain cool. I have faith in your enduring coolness...

You have to admit it's pretty sweet that I could do that to you though!
