     In the immortal words of Barbie: "math class is tough, let's go shopping!" Smile

     

    GI Joe has been known to say that.

    Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

    DON'T TREAD ON ME

      I'm taking over my body, back in control, no more shotty
      I bet a lot of me was lost, 't's uncrossed and 'i's undotted
      I fought it a lot and it seems a lot like flesh is all I got
      Not anymore, flesh out the door, swat


      Snarl snarl.

        Some songs that help fuel my runs:

         

        This Head I Hold -- Electric Guest

        The Letter -- The Box Tops

        Vertigo -- U2

        Classical Gas -- Mason Williams/Mannheim Steamroller

        Falls on Me -- Fuel

        See You -- Dinosaur Jr.

        Burnin' for You -- Blue Oyster Cult

        Soul Love -- David Bowie

        Rolling in the Deep -- Adele

        Anna Sun -- Walk the Moon

          If you are ever stuck running on a treadmill, great way to survive!!!

          And you can quote me as saying I was mis-quoted. Groucho Marx

              As far as a good album to run to that I have been digging

              Entrain-- Rise Up Live Volume 1

              http://www.entrain.com/music.asp

               

              One song that is on some of my mixes that has been amusing me lately and seems to describe my running lately is;

              Mr. Brownstone by Guns N' Roses

               

              I used ta do a little but a little wouldn't do
              So the little got more and more
              I just keep tryin' ta get a little better
              Said a little better than before


              Not dead. Yet.

                Check out the self-titled "Dirty Vegas" album.

                How can we know our limits if we don't test them?

                  The first Queens Of The Stone Age album. And the second, the third and the fourth.

                   

                  Also, most of the fifth. And I have high hopes for the sixth one when it comes out.

                        I love running to

                        Bombs Over Baghdad - Outkast

                        Take it to the House- Trick Daddy

                        mmmbop - Hanson

                        I can't even think of songs a  much as artists I listen to everything from punk to hip-hop to pop. I like anything fast paced for the run, then something Alison Krause- ish for the cool down

                          you really can't go wrong with anything Calvin Harris related.

                          My leg won't stop mooing.

                              ELO - Mr. Blue Sky - This one is great to run to.

                              Flaming Lips - Turn it On - Only three chords.

                              Frank Zappa - Titties and Beer

                                Mr. Brownstone by Guns N' Roses

                                 

                                I used ta do a little but a little wouldn't do
                                So the little got more and more
                                I just keep tryin' ta get a little better

                                I'm sure you know, he's not talking about about "more and more" of a good thing like running, right? Wink  But yeah, great song.

                                 

                                The quintessential running song for me is "The Distance" by Cake.  Runner-up is that song by Rage Against The Machine.  And the song from that genre I refer to as "pop-punk" (Paramore, Blink 182, etc.).

                                 

                                Hey, anyone ever listened to Marine Corps marching cadences while running?  I got the idea as I was watching Full Metal Jacket on the treadmill (which is interesting in itself).  It's great,  especially if you're in a secluded area where you can chant along without people looking at you funny!
