THE MONDAY LIST #13: Unlucky For Some….

Seeing as this is the thirteenth Monday List i thought i’d just roll with the numbers and do a list of unlucky related songs. Ok, here goes….

Unlucky For Some….
——————————-

1. Black Cat #13 – Ingest with Water
2. Mystery Jets – Umbrellahead
3. Patrick Wolf – Magpie
4. Pixies – No.13 Baby
5. The Cribs – Mirror Kissers
6. Fu Manchu – Evil Eye
7. Hot Chip – Bad Luck
8. Caspian – The Raven
9. Elliott Smith – Thirteen
10. Korn – Shoots and Ladders
11. Queens Of The Stone Age – Walkin’ On The Sidewalks
12. Tasharg – The Seven Year Itch
13. Wu Tang Clan – Dog Shit

The only things i could think of which were bad luck related were black cats, the number 13, walking under ladders, opening an umbrella indoors, walking on the cracks in the pavement, breaking a mirror, magpies, ravens and i wasn’t sure if standing in dog faeces is unlucky or lucky. I think it varies from culture to culture. Personally i think it’s a bit of both….it’s obviously quite unlucky to stand in it but then again surely your day can only get better if you tread in shit so it could be kinda lucky i suppose. Dunno really.

Good Things Come To Those Who…

guinness-draft1

Today or tomorrow (depending on where you are in the world) marks the 250th anniversary of Guinness. It was on this very day in 1759 that Arthur Guinness poured his very first pint of Guinness and the rest they say is history…..

Some random Guinness facts:

Guinness is brewed in more than a 150 countries worldwide.

40% of all Guinness sales are in Africa.

It takes 119.53 seconds to pour the “perfect pint” of Guinness.

There are only 198 calories per pint of Guinness.

Axe A Dent and Emerge and See

Apologies for the late weekend mixtape but i’ve been a busy boy. As many of you will know, this Wednesday past happened to be the 9/9/09. I was going to make a special mixtape up on the Wednesday to commemorate this once in a lifetime date. Well, my lifetime anyway, unless i somehow live till September 2109. Anyways, i couldn’t get round to making the mix up on the Wednesday due to more important matters, ie. getting drunk and watching the Scotland vs Holland game round the local watering hole. So i thought to myself “i’ll make it on the Thursday”….but i was too hungover. Friday? Went and seen a friends band playing in Stereo (i’ll post some stuff soon). Saturday? Couldn’t. It’s a long story.
But!……… But! Today i finally got the time to make it. The theme of the mix takes on a 999/Accident & Emergency vibe, so bands and songs that were included had to have that kinda slant to their name. Things along the lines of Police, Ambulance, Criminals, Fire, Accidents etc. Hope you enjoy!
