Cody Jams on Friday (March 11, 2005)

How I Could Just Kill a Man (Cypress Hill) - This song reminds me of when I was playing hoops at Blinn JuCo in Brenham, Texas, a racist-ass backward small town between Houston and Austin. I was one of three white guys on the team, and our white coach once pulled us three aside and explained to us (picture shrill, whiny old man Texan accent voice here): "Now you guys need to step it up. You're smarter than the....er, other fellas. But you're not playing that way. You're not as athletic as them, but you've got to use the gifts that god gave you." Ah, Coach Dalchau another leader of young men making his mark on the world. Anyway, we used to kick it in the commons area of our segregated dorm (no whites and blacks roomed together) jamming to Cypress.

At the River (Groove Armada) - Smooth, cool jam.

These Dreams (Nancy Wilson) - Eighth grade crush song. No names named this time. :)

Rearviewmirror (Pearl Jam) - Some very personal lyrics to me in this song. Things weren't always calm at my house growing up. Cried when I heard Pearl Jam sing this song the first time live.

Sundown (Gordon Lightfoot) - A staple on the easy listening station always on when I was cleaning cages at my father's vet office in the 70s. Hard work, not always fun, but I learned the value of work, and my parents made me save half of each paycheck. Along with money from my parents, I later used those savings to buy a Nissan truck in high school. Thank you, Mom and Dad!

Do It Again (The Kinks) - Not their most popular, but my favorite tune of theirs.

Act a Fool (Master P) - One of my idols.

Twice as Hard (The Black Crowes) - Damn, these guys are a great band.

Cruz (Christina Aguilera) - Great song to open up the sun roof, put it in overdrive and lose yourself on the highway.

Against the 70s (Mike Watt) - Pearl Jam intro'd me to this song via a cover of theirs a few years ago, if I'm not mistaken. The original by Mike Watt rocks too.

Hey, thanks, Ellie!

I publish a new iMix every Friday. So please come back soon!

PS. Sports is certainly not a topic that I will ever spend time on in the traditional sense...ie, Go Whoever University or Whatever Mascot!
