get the crazy out

So clearly, I’m a little bit bitter.

It’s kinda bad. I’m not an angry yeller. I more of giant tear drop sobber. It’s the most pathetic display of disappointed expression. I’m surprised that I have never been slapped like Mrs. Peacock gets slapped by Mr. Green in Clue by one of my friends. I guess being pissed is better than being sad, no? I just hope that my personality doesn’t change because I’m a non-smoker. Beyond my latest rant, I’ve gotten severely pissed about the dumbest things in the past couple of days. For example: I could not find the matching sock this morning. I’m not kidding when I say that I kinda wanted to punch someone. I also honked twice (and swore) at this old lady who couldn’t pick a lane yesterday on the freeway. The honking and swearing was warranted, but is not characteristic of me. I’m more of a, “Oh there ya go, assclown, you got it…” encourager of bad drivers.

Anywho… Mama needs to get the crazy out. Whether you’re working out, breaking up, singing out your road rage, are bored with muttering “eff you”…  I thought a play list is in order.

1. Effect & Cause, by the White Stripes
Let me count the ways that I heart, heart, heart, you, creepy looking super sexy/talented Jack White. (I know: creepy and sexy at the same time? As mentioned earlier… I have mad shoes.) This song just makes so much sense in so many ways. “I ain’t the reason that you gave me no reason to return your call.” I couldn’t have said it better.

2. Gun Powder & Lead, by Miranda Lambert
I’m not a country girl. And I am not an advocate of shooting someone in retaliation to domestic violence. However, this song was gifted to me by a lady who has given me a swift kick in the pills lesson about standing up for myself. She’s pretty boss, as is this song. Plus it talks about smoking cigarettes! Ooooh, yummy… (What, I can’t sing about smoking?)

3. Hang Me Up to Dry, by the Cold War Kids
This song/band is just awesome. It’s a good road rage sing-a-long, no? Plus the riff between refrains is pretty bad ass.

4.Y Control, by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Or anything by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Talk about one crazy (yet super talented) Lady. I hear she spits on her audience. And of course I’m following this sentence by saying that I would love to see this band live. I would love to meet her. You’re only allowed to be Courtney Love crazy if you can back it up with a shit load of talent. The line “I wish I could buy back the woman you stole” is absolutely killer.

5. Leash, by Pearl Jam
Because sometimes a lady just needs to jam out to a song that says “Get out of my (expletive) face!”

6. There You Go, P!nk
I don’t care what anyone says, but P!nk is one of the few pop tarts out there that has any talent. She’s got a great voice, a sense of humor and for the love —she’s got an exclamation mark in her name. She’s one of those ladies that never apologizes, and doesn’t apologize for it.

7. Bigger Boys and Stolen Sweethearts, by the Arctic Monkeys
These guys make me feel like I’m in the midst of a soccer fan street fight like in the movie Green Street Hooligans. Next time I’m in London, it better be on a Saturday so I can get “pissed” watching football and get into a fight.

8. Angels in the Silences, by Counting Crows
My original heartbreak anthem from way back when. That Adam Duritz has carried me through a debacle or two. Stay away from the weepy ones, though… for real, that dude can get under your skin and eff your business up if you allow it.

9. Out of Range, by Ani DiFranco (FROM LIVING IN CLIP)
The version of this song is essential… she ad libs about “getting over the urge to kill someone and getting into the urge to rock”. It’s a hilarious intro. Makes you laugh a little bit about what you’re pissed about. I have been a long time fan of this diva. She’s a self-made musician that never compromises her beliefs and is a lyrical genius.

10. I Won’t Back Down, performed by Eddie Vedder
Great tune. Stand your ground. Don’t smoke cigarettes. Don’t call him back. Don’t back down. Eddie says so. Well if Eddie says so…

Three more days suckas… then I’m going shopping for me B. Spears work out gear. It’s gonna be scene at the gym…
**Update**
I would also like to add Sublime’s April 29, 1992 and DMX’s What’s my Name? to this playlist. Check these tunes out. It will be self explanatory as to why they help release some pent up aggression.
