Fave Song of the Week: I’m the One That’s Cool

I adore Felicia Day. I truly enjoy The Guild. And I’ve been a Whedon brothers fan-girl since before they were “cool“.

So when they teamed up to release this gem of a song “I’m the One That’s Cool”, I played it over and over, again for hours.
Fast forward two years later.
Present Day.
I still LOVE this song!

Like the characters featured in this music video, I was a complete dork in high school. And I actually still am. I’m completely comfortable with that fact. While I (thankfully) never got a toilet bowl swirly – I did get pushed in a pool, teased about my glasses, and dealt with bizarro rumors. But dag nab it, those things made me stronger… and geekier! *grin*

So this article is dedicated to my fellow geeks.

Fave Song of the Week: Young & Beautiful

I am SO frakking enamored with this song lately…  It’s Young and Beautiful by Lana Del Ray.  Made famous in the movie The Great Gatsby.

Thoughts? Commentary?

My Weekly Playlist – Music to drive by

Since it’s Labor Day weekend and many people will be spending hours behind the wheel of the family truckster… I figured this would be the perfect time to share my favorite “Driving Music”.

Driving music for me usually fits into one of two areas — you can either sing along with it (even if you are completely tone-deaf like me, which makes even my dog cover his ears) or it’s upbeat, bouncy, and seems to help the miles fly by.

  • The entire Classified album by Bond
  • Stop the Rock by Apollo 440
  • You’re the Only One by Maria Mena
  • Moulin Rouge soundtrack
  • Tape Song by The Kills
  • Drive by Incubus
  • Gives You Hell by The All-American Rejects
  • You’re Gonna Go Far, Kid by The Offspring

Have a wonderful and safe holiday weekend!

My Weekly Playlist – Music to work by

This week was mostly about me getting my to-do list down to a manageable level. My email in-boxes were out of control for months, and I really wanted to get started writing here on Bionic Style occasionally. Not to mention Bionic Beauty needed some navigation upgrades… basically I’m finally catching up after my-year-from-hell, also known as 2009 to the everyone else.

Here’s the songs that kept me grooving while I worked…

  • Uprising by Muse

  • Fighter by Christina Aguilera
  • Away from Me by Evanescence
  • Shark in the Water by VV Brown
  • Whiskey Hangover by Godsmack
  • Down In It by NIN
  • The Pretender by The Foo Fighters

Feel free to share any songs that really defined your mood or experiences this week!
