Day of bazillion posts...

So because I know how much ya'll like to be entertained and because I have no shame I present for you a fabulous visual:

It's the nicest day in Milwaukee in a very long time. I'm off of work, it's not yet 5 and I get to cruise on home to start the grill for a very yummy dinner. The windows are down and I'm enjoying the tease that they call spring around here (you know, til it snows again) Anyway, I'm enjoying the fleetingly good weather and the sun, so it's definitely time to blare some tunage....

And boy do I get the weird looks. Apparently it's not normal for a white girl in Wisconsin driving a Focus to be rocking out to 1990s Colombian pop.... you know, in Spanish. The lady next to me at the stop light actually rolled up her windows and locked her doors. As if I could be induced to stop my rocking out! I was in the groove dammit. And despite how crappy her English language stuff can be, mid 90s spanish language Shakira is some good shit and ain't no one gonna be able to convince me otherwise.

Shakira is the Spanish language Alanis Morrissette. Same warbly vocal style.

Her early stuff is a LOT less whiny, trust me. The stuff I'm talking about is Pure pop. It's just got better beats and background music.

Also, she's not as angry as Alanis, which, you know, is nice
