Ask Nettie Day is another blog by a student librarian. Cynth, you should network.
But that's a flimsy excuse for a post. Let's talk some more.
While I was at Best Buy the other day, picking up Curb Your Enthusiasm season 3 and Shaun of the Dead, I impulse-bought the CD Fit to Be Tied: Great Hits by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. I've been growing fond of Jett lately. "I Love Rock & Roll" was fun when I first heard it years ago on the Wayne's World 2 soundtrack, but got old fast and never made me seek out her other stuff. But lately, "Bad Reputation" has been my favorite track from Freaks and Geeks, and "I Hate Myself for Loving You" is my crowd-pleasing new karaoke standard (and as I tell Stephanie, a great choice for a wedding song someday). So I thought, might as well actually buy a compilation CD.
I'm not regretting it at all. The three tracks I mentioned were on it, but I don't mind having them all in one place with a bunch of new ones. She does a cover of "Road Runner" that's pretty cool, and also a cover of the Mary Tyler Moore theme, "Love is All Around." She's got a great tough rock chick persona, as she should since she pretty much defined what that is. I may go on to seek out more.
