I am truly a musical spaz. When people ask “What type of music do you like” as they usually do on dates and awkward social interactions, I get very nervous. Damn that question. I don’t know what kind of music I like, how dare you ask me something so personal, can’t I just tell you my social security number, at least I know that. Usually my answer is “Uhh, I like a little bit of everything.” That’s right before I shrink back and look for less intrusive people to talk to.
The truth is I have no idea what’s going on in music. Sometimes I put on Pandora and take notes to look into later on iTunes. Or I just go straight to the source and buy at random. I’ve purchased some truly terrible albums for the sake of educating myself.
Yesterday, however, I decided to grow a pair and refresh my exercise playlist. Rihanna and Britney were getting kind of old. Plus, I can’t listen to Rihanna anymore now without thinking of Chris Brown and that just puts a damper on my stride.
I hit up iTunes to refresh my running playlist and psych myself up to go to the gym this year. Here’s what I added to the mix:
It really is amazing how motivational music is, now I’m chomping at the bit to hop on a treadmill and test drive my new friends.
I’m always up for suggestions, so if there are any must have ditties I should add to my workout playlist please school me. When people ask me what’s currently on my iPod I’d rather not admit that it’s Bill Withers.

My sort-of stir fry cooking. I like to partially steam the veggies first, and bake the tofu a bit before transferring to the fry pan so I don’t need as much oil. A little bit of oil at the end to crisp everything up goes a long way.
