I have been on a watching binge of the 2010 television series Parenthood. This is largely due to a recent urgent need to keep myself going through the night as my work shift has gone from my nice cushy evening shift to a shift that propels me to work from sunset to sunrise Sunday through Thursday. When on such a shift, boredom is a real creeper. It’s six seasons of wonderful family wholesome. Like Eight is Enough without the cheesy morality tales, and while we all love Betty Buckley, Bonnie Bedelia steams the joint up a bit more as the matriarchal Mrs. Braverman.
As music plays a vital role in this program (a central storyline is that the brothers Crosby and Whathisname run a recording studio together, but the show overall uses music to great effect), I half-thought about procuring a Spotify playlist based on the many eclectic tunes used throughout. Before making the effort, though, I thought I’d see if some other obsessive soul had previously done the work.
Runfaster19, you are the man. Person. Whatever. What a comprehensive playlist you created. Congratulations.

If Dolly Parton does a rock album, she needs to cover “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap.” I can already hear this in my head and I want to hear it for real.

I came back from Gold Circle and I called Jane. We talked for a while and then I said what I did.
“I bought ‘Songs from the Big Chair.'”
There was silence on the phone.
“You did what?”
I rode my bike to Gold Circle and I bought “Songs from the Big Chair.” I repeated.
“I don’t know you anymore,” she replied.
“I know,” I said. “What happened to me?”
