Helllllooooo ladies.

I haven't done the official "introduction" as of yet - and I had something to post so i figured I would combine the efforts.

Word. So - onto the amusingness. My name is Paula and I am from Boston. Novelist/ Journalist. At 27 I still go to shows, but instead of being squished up front, I just use my press pass to get backstage. I guess I just have a different perception of how to enjoy shows now a days lol. Me old self just can't handle them youngsters.

So there was this thread last week about music we like that inspires us to keep going. So. I am proposing this.

First - you guys have got to listen to this band that I randomly found today called "Does it offend you, Yeah?" I downloaded it after a quick listen and I have not found an indie band yet that was as "work out-tastic" as this one. I did 50 extra minutes just listening to it over and over.

So I added a good chunk of it onto my playlist. I am thinking that we should compile a playlist and post it on iTunes. The alterna workout one they have on itunes- in my opinion - sucks.

So, most of us probably have that CD, or iPod, labeled Work Out Jams - post yours on here. I am doing some updating and will post mine in a few.

!!!! - Paula

APC - Counting Bodies Like Sheep to the Rhythm of the War Drums
Korn - Here to Stay
Depeche Mode - John the Revelator
Billy Corgan - Mina Loy
Limp Bizkit - Rollin'
Justin Timberlake - Sexy Back (yeah, yeah I know hehe)
Prodigy - Spitfire
Tool - Stinkfist (most any Tool is good, but this is a favorite)

Yeah, the stinkfist bass intro would be good before you tackle any kind of an incline - it sounds like what you would play when you know impeding doom is before you. :)

I am gonna have to check out that Bill Corgan song.

I don't have a specific playlist - I bellydance so most of the stuff I work out to is middle eastern music, celtic and a bit of dark n' dancy thrown into the mix.

Belly dancing is the coolest. I had this girl I went to school with, who was about my weight and just rocked it. I always applauded her for her courage. She had me come and body paint her in flames once when she did Firestarter. She looked ammmmmmazing. :D
