Do As I Say And You Live

Work: I've recently come to appreciate just how cush-cush my job is. Four hours a night, and most of it is just standing around, or sitting on a stool if I'm lucky. So I really have nothing to be disgruntled about, but I still get pissed when someone walks around my podium and tries to fuck around with my charts. I have to fight the urge to say "Hey, excuse me, asshole, but would you stop screwing around with my work shit? Do I come where you work, knock the broom out of your hands?"

Fantastic Burrito: Are my mom and I the only people who refer to Fantasia Burrino (the third American Idol winner) as Fantastic Burrito?

Music: Kurt asked me for some help with the soundtrack for the movie, but my music collection doesn't really lend itself to a non-stop action flick. I mean, even Space Jam had a couple of ballads in there. What are some badass fighting songs?

Gogle: Josh Mattson introduced me to this fine term. Gogle: to ogle someone/something so hard your eyes pop out--like goggles. She was goglin' at me all night.

no, no, no - total eclipse of the heart by bonnie tyler - are you nuts?

i thought that, but for a fight song i wasn't too sure, holding out for a hero is more upbeat. rock you like a hurricaine, scorpions

where does micheal buble even fit into this kubas? how about the snakes on a plane theme song, that would be an ultimate fight song.

ok, you are all completely soundtrack noobs.

let me take care of this.

what you want, i believe, is some stuff from the matrix. i suggest chateua, or furious angels by rob dougan or mona lisa overdrive by don davis. these are more of your ninja type fight songs. mona lisa is also a great song for a chase scene (ala the massive car chase in reloaded).

flight to the ford off the first lord of the rings soundtrack is also very good, but the part that is intense is pretty brief and it is right in the middle of the track.

i'd also check out immediate music who does stuff for trailers. i really like redrum, lacrimosa (spider man 2 trailer), gothic power, arcana, mercutio, and rising empire (x-men 3 trailer). x-ray dogs is good for that sort of stuff.

other soundtracks to look over are gladiator (the battle, the might of rome, and barbarian horde are good), the chronicles of narnia (the battle), last samurai (all of the tracks are pretty good for fight scenes besides the first and last tracks, but probably the best are taken, idylls end, ronin, the red warrior, and the way of the sword), king arthur (woad to ruin, budget meeting), and even the da vinci code can provide some good stuff (i'd go with the very end of fructis gravis or the first half of the citrine cross). basically anything by hans zimmer. and if all else fails, go with pirates.

if you can't find good music from that then you just should go ahead and walk off a cliff. max, if you can't find that music, talk to me and i'll burn you some.

I was going to suggest "In the Midnight Hour" by Billy Idol, but that might make the fight scene a little weird.

I meant "Rebel Yell" by Billy Idol, my bad

Wow, okay.

I already had Street fightin' man and Five on there.

Oh, and NERD-Rock Star. That's a badass song.
