As I was going to sleep last night I started thinking about what a cool verb "burned" is. It's etymologically wicked. Consider the following:

I burned my hand on the stove.
The horrible image was burned into my memory.
Last night I burned my mix CD.
The coach burned a timeout after the penalty.
Highwaygirl really burned Overg when she called him a gork.

Pretty cool, huh?

My Launch.com station has been ROCKING this morning. Here's a glimpse of what I've been listening to:

Pat Benatar, "Heartbreaker" – You're the right kind of sinner to release my inner fantasies

Gordon Lightfoot, "Canadian Railroad Trilogy" – Bring in the workers and bring up the rails

Scritti Politti, "Perfect Way" – A part of me belongs apart from all the hurt above

Depeche Mode, "Stripped" – Let me see you STRIPPED down to the BONE

Wilco, "Candyfloss" – I know I should be more careful, I know I should watch where I've been

Matthew Good Band, "Failing the Rorschach Test" – This ain't real, baby ... got a better excuse for myself

Babanarama, "Venus" – As black as the dark night, she was ... had what no one else had (yeow!)

Juliana Hatfield Three, "My Sister" – I hate my sister, she's such a bitch

10,000 Maniacs, "These Are Days" – You know it's true, that you are blessed and lucky

Queen, "Killer Queen (Live)" – Caviar and cigarettes, well versed in etiquette, extrordinarily nice

Human League, "Don't You Want Me?" – Don't forget it's me who put you where you are now, and I can put you back down too

Tones on Tail, "OK This Is the Pops" – Know the truth but tell only lies

Pixies, "Debaser" – I am un chien andalusia

New Order, "True Faith" – I used to think that the day would never come, I'd see delight in the shade of the morning sun

Alice In Chains, "Man In the Box" – He who tries (will be wasted)

Bauhaus, "Sanity Assassin" – He drops a capsule in your drink and spikes your dreams with madness

The Outfield, "Your Love" – JOSIE'S ON A VA-CA-TION FAR A-WAY!

John Mayer, "Why Georgia" – Everybody is just a stranger, but that's the danger in going my own way

Stevie Nicks (with Tom Petty), "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" – This doesn't have to be the big Get Even, this doesn't have to be anything at all

Fountains of Wayne, "Bright Future In Sales" – I'm gonna get my shit together, 'cause I can't live like this forever

The Monkees, "Daydream Believer" – Cheer up, Sleepy Jean! Oh what can it mean, to a daydream believer (or a homecoming queen)

Guster, "What You Wish For" – And I will get what I deserve

Pearl Jam, "Daughter" – She holds the hand that holds her down ... she will rise above

Jimmy Eat World, "Sweetness" – Stumble 'til you crack, sinking into sweet uncertainty
