Word for the Week: Block

Because...

My company has blocked access to non-business related sites, including Facebook, Youtube and all emails (of course, we aren't called pirates for nothing, but that's another story). So what's considered a business-related site? Well, DeathToPandas.com and ButtonMeHoney.net seem to have remained unscathed, and BlastThatSOBtoKathmandu.org frequently ranks among the top 20 most visited web pages. I know, I know: my company is so dull.

Badly Drawn Boy - Once Around the Block (from The Hour Of Bewilderbeast) [BUY]
In a rare moment of joviality, Damon Gough gets intoxicated over some frivolous, unnamed madame. Apparently her name is Chu Chu.

The Strays - Block Alarm (from Le Futur Noir) [BUY]
Swaths of Strokes are championed from the summit of Mt Vavavoom.

Company of Thieves - Around the Block (from Ordinary Riches) [BUY]
Smack in the middle of the dang fine debut by this Chi-town bunch comes a pre-pubescent parade that flaunts its speckles twice round the hood.

Bob Dylan - No More Auction Block (from The Bootleg Series, Vols. 1-3: Rare And Unreleased, 1961-1991) [BUY]
A forsaken Bob pines for the lost era of opportunity, and in the process wrenches out a most muddy hymnal.

I thought that Dylan song was the reflections of a slave who had escaped to freedom? That's what it said in the notes for The Bootleg Series anyway.

Hmmm...you're probably right. Damn you songmeanings.com!
