No Va.

So, I've got to take the Metro home today because my car is still in the shop. I was lucky enough to catch a ride from [ profile] wjukknibs here, but I'm on my own the way back.

I keep meaning to write about the Arboretum trip, but I was . . . distracted today. Possibly after I get home, or possibly a bit after. For now, here are the answers to the Lyrics Thing. Go there first if you don't want to be spoiled. Sorry, but I don't have time to link to the lesser-known artists right now. Let the Google be yor frend.
  1. "Stranded on the Club Girls' Terrain," Post-Minstrel Syndrome—The Negro Problem.
  2. "Last Days of Disco," And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out—Yo La Tengo.
  3. "Dirty Dream #2," The Boy With the Arab Strap—Belle and Sebastian.
  4. "Luring Him OM," Doing Jack—Dudley.
  5. "My Last Cigarette," Drag—k.d. lang. (This song is actually a cover.)
  6. "Ana Ng," Lincoln—They Might Be Giants. (Technically, this is the second CD of Then.)
  7. "Giselle," Naked Dutch Painter—Stew.
  8. "You Can Call Me Al," Graceland—Paul Simon.
  9. "In Liverpool," 99.9 F°—Suzanne Vega
  10. "Times New Roman Font Announces Period Shortage," Pure Drivel—Steve Martin. (This is an recording of Steve Martin reading from his book.)
  11. "How Was I to Know," Nil Lara—Nil Lara.
  12. "Where the Streets Have No Name," The Joshua Tree—U2.
  13. "Ugly," Eighteen Over Me—Garrison Starr.
  14. "I Dream a Highway," Time (The Revelator)—Gillian Welch.
  15. "Idly," Mirador—Tarnation
  16. "Five Minutes," Songs From Takeoff to Landing—Garrison Starr.
  17. "Donde Estas Yolanda," Sympathique—Pink Martini.
  18. "Come Down Now," Joys and Concerns—The Negro Problem.
  19. "John, I Love You," Universal Mother—Sinead O'Connor. (Although I own the full album, this was taken from a "Best of" cd.)
  20. "Brick," Whatever and Ever Amen—Ben Folds Five. (Although I own the full album, this was taken from Ben Folds Live)
  21. "Look at the Sky ," Urinetown: The Musical—Original Cast Recording.
  22. "Screenwriter's Blues," Ruby Vroom—Soul Coughing. (Those who believe that this is the greatest song ever may be invited to listen to it at 5:00 a.m. while driving to Reseda during next year's con. It's frickin' amazing!)
  23. "Tangled and Wild," Johnstown—Oh Susanna.
  24. "Get Me Away from Here I'm Dying," If You're Feeling Sinister —Belle and Sebastian
  25. "Center of Gravity," I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One—Yo La Tengo.
I hope that clears everything up.

How do you get from downtown to Sherman Oaks on the subway? Doesn't it stop in North Hollywood?

I'm so ashamed that I didn't recognize the Belle and Sebastian.

If you get off at Universal City, you can catch a Metro Rapid bus that goes all the way down Ventura. I just get off at Sepulveda.

And I was a bit surprised that no one got the Belle and Sebastian songs.
