What does Jonathan have to say?



Blue Monday Not So Blue

A little tired this morning?  Moving slowly?  Don’t feel like working?  Are you in a bad mood?  All those things seem like they could be blamed on a case of the Mondays, right?

Wrong.

A study just published says there’s really no such thing as a case of the Mondays. 

What?!  Have I just been a bad mood every Monday for no reason?

The study says we actually feel about the same on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  We’re in good moods on Fridays and both days of the weekend. 

This discovery is disappointing.  I’ve always thought the breakdown of the work week went like this:

Monday: Tired, grumpy, unproductive

Tuesday: Acceptance, pleasant, productive

Wednesday: Slightly fatigued but slightly motivated because it’s “Hump Day”

Thursday: Excited and distracted because it’s “Friday Eve”

Friday: Unproductive because it’s almost the weekend, but in a good mood.

Saturday & Sunday: Happy, happy, happy

According to my theory, the best work day of the week is Tuesday because we realize we’re trapped in the work week so we might as well do some work.  According to the study, my theory is bunk.  So I guess we'll have to blame our unproductive ways on something else.

U2 Unplugged
Rolling Stone Magazine got U2 to perform their new song "The Miracle (of Joey Ramone)" acoustically--and it's pretty great! Maybe we should invite them to come in and play for us in Studio M!
World's Worst iPod: LeBlanc & Carr "Falling"
LeBlanc and Carr were Lenny LeBlanc and Pete Carr, two Muscle Shoals studio musicians who hit the top 40 in 1978 with their hit "Falling." It made it up to #13 on the charts and was perfect for clumsy teenage slow dancing! Musically, these guys were...

Kitty's night in a haunted house
Before Friday, my only experience with a haunted house, commercial or otherwise, was at the Recreation Department in Stevens Point when I was a teenager, and as I remember I was FREAKED out. So I was a little nervous when Jonathan and I were asked to...

World's Worst iPod: El DeBarge "Who's Johnny"
A lot of people seemed to have fond memories of this questionable song from 1986. "Who's Johnny" was the first solo hit for the guy named El DeBarge, and it went to number 3 on the charts. Some of you might remember it from the movie "Short...

Finally, recognition of Stevie Ray Vaughan by the Rock Hall
The new list of nomines for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is out, and finally they give a nod to Stevie Ray Vaughan. The Rock Hall has passed Stevie by for the more than ten years that he's been eligible, causing me and other blues fans much...

You might want to see "Once" twice
I had the opportunity to go see "Once" at Overture Hall last night, and I guess the two word summary of my review could be "weirdly awesome." The story isn't too complicated, which is good because I sometimes had a hard time understanding the...

World's Worst iPod: Stonebolt "I Will Still Love You"
It seems Kitty was all alone in the Canadian wilderness with her love for the 1978 hit "I Will Still Love You" by Stonebolt. It only made it up to #29, so it seems a lot of folks didn't have the fond memories of the song that she did. With amazing...

World's Worst iPod: Neil Diamond "Yesterday's Songs"
Even Neil Diamond fans didn't seem to want to throw their support behind this one. "Yesterday's Songs" with its cheesy backup singers may be the most cliche song the guy does! It made it up to #11 on the charts in 1981/82 and was #1 on the...
