"Laff it Off" and "I'm a Dreamer--Aren't We All?" December 16, 2005

(Week 21)

Assuming the carnival of trauma that has beset me today does not extend its jurisdiction into tomorrow (don't ask!) and the sleet storm now glazing the Northeast like a big ol' donut allows me to travel up an inclined plane, tomorrow's four-hour tune fest should be delightful. Here is the somewhat schizoid playlist I've constructed. UPDATE: Part One ("Laff it Off") has now been uploaded to Live 365:
