Peeping Tiny
Tiny, displaying her usual effervescence in this shot by the estimable Sissy Willis.

It’s Friday, time once again for Blog d’Elisson’s Friday Random Ten, the weekly Shufflement of Selected Songs as spewed out by the iPod d’Elisson.

Today’s Random Ten is brought to you by Tiny, one of Sissy Willis’s sparkle-eyed kitties, who reminds us that Friday Ark #185 is underway at the Modulator. While you’re listening to your own Musical Selections, check out the assortment of cats, dogs, and other Miscellaneous Fauna.

This Sunday (Tiny adds), the 212th Carnival of the Cats will be hosted by Be sure to visit!

What’s on the box today? Lessee:
  1. Kol Nidre - The Electric Prunes

    From Release of an Oath, a work combining Jewish and Christian liturgy.

  2. Di Mekhutonim Geyen/Tants A Freylekhs - The Klezmer Conservatory Band

  3. Rooman ruumiit - Alamaailman Vasarat

  4. Gershwin Medley - Stephane Grappelli

  5. Magicians/Politics - Bobby Slayton

  6. Business Cards - Mitch Hedberg

  7. In Taberna - Olim Lacus Colueram - Christian Thielemann - Orff: Carmina Burana

    Gotta love it: a dead swan complaining about the Current State of Affairs as he roasts on a spit.

    Olim lacus colueram,
    Olim pulcher exstiteram,
    Dum cygnus ego fueram.
    Miser, miser!
    Modo niger
    Et ustus fortiter!

    Girat, regirat garcifer;
    Me rogus urit fortiter;
    Propinat me nunc dapifer.
    Miser, miser!
    Modo niger
    Et ustus fortiter!

    Nunc in scutella iaceo,
    Et volitare nequeo;
    Dentes frendentes video.
    Miser, miser!
    Modo niger
    Et ustus fortiter!

  8. Ships Passing in the Night - Michael Leviton

    I’ve seen you around once or twice.
    We never strayed from the script.
    We were too polite.
    Ill-equipped for pretty sights,
    We’re just ships passing in the night.

    So, in a moment of eclipse,
    You avert your eyes until I’m out of sight.
    Say what etiquette permits.
    How do we requite, passing in the night?

    So, we remain tight-lipped,
    Lips unsatisfied, fantasies untried.
    Seems romance has us gypped,
    Strangers but not quite,
    Passing in the night.

  9. Surrey Mit A Fringe Afn Top - Seymour Rechtzeit

    Oklahoma as you’ve never heard it before.

  10. I Don’t Belong Here - Klaus Badelt, The Time Machine (2002)

It’s Friday. What are you listening to?

Update: CotC #212 is up.
