The Best Happiness Money Can Buy

You will notice that I switched to MegaUpload for outgoing files, but I would appreciate if everything sent to me go through YouSendIt

Thanks for the praise and suggestions, guys. This is still a work in progress, so any opinions on how to better myself are greatly appreciated.

Thanks also to cb for sending me the soundtrack to Mysterious Skin. I've not yet seen the movie, but it's certainly sparked my interest, so I must. I'm really enjoying the soundtrack. Here it is for your insomnia-curing pleasure.
Mysterious Skin OST

I'm trying to live up to all the over-hyping done by Kristi and it's proving difficult. Not cause I'm incompetent, there's just a lot of praise. So the best plan I have right now is to put the ol' Ipod on random and post what comes up. Ok? Ok.

Aqueduct - Hardcore Days and Softcore Nights
Matt Mays & El Torpedo - Cocaine Cowgirl
The Futureheads - Decent Days and Nights
I'm such a sucker for The Futureheads ever since I saw them live last year and they were fan-fucking-tastic
Stars - Reunion

Hooray for Shuffle!

Sleeping With the Lights On

Welcome to Lost on Purpose, yet another blog about the sharing and appreciation of music by a bored little Canadian girl. Good music. It's still a work in progress, so I'll be tweaking here and there, but the aim won't change.
If any of you are thinking that this is going to be as good as That Girl Needs Therapy by the stimulating Kristi Helmes, don't get your hopes up, because hers is the best thing since sliced bread and you'll just be disappointed. I will, however, do my very best because I love spreading the music around, so any requests I get will be loved like my children. I don't really have children, but you get it.
I would hate for my music geekery at any time to turn into music snobbery, so if I ever sound too pompous, email me at and take me down a few pegs.
But I love mail about music, so to get the ball rolling, could you send me a little bit of anything you've been listening to lately? Open my eyes to something I might not have heard before, because I'm very non-discriminatory about my taste, so all will be sampled. I will do my best to return the favour, but you're probably all more knowledgeable than me. (Please, please send them through YouSendIt )

Here's a few random songs that just came up on my Ipod. Not new ones, mind you, and I know you've all heard them before, and I know they've been out forever, but who cares, right?

The Dears - Lost in the Plot
The Breeders - Happiness is a Warm Gun (Beatles cover, but you know that)
AC Newman - On the Table
Johnette Napolitano - Suicide Note
Seems Johnette(Concrete Blonde)is everywhere I go nowadays. Suicide Note is from the Underworld Soundtrack.
Bell X1 - Eve, The Apple of my Eye
The Faint - Desperate Guys
Esthero - We R In Need of a Musical Revolution
Teitur - Sleeping with the Lights On

Check 'em out, there's far more to come.
