I did not realize it had been over two months since I last updated Scribblings & Bibblings. That said, I can't say I'm going to update it on a much more frequent basis. That would be like claiming you're going to follow through on every one of your New Year's Resolutions, or vowing to never do something again after you've embarrassed yourself. ("I am never drinking/watching Real Housewives/eating that many donuts/talking to her/him [fill your own blank] again.") But I will say that I will try to try to update this  more frequently.

As most everyone who knows me knows, I am training for a marathon in October: the Hartford Marathon to be specific. Back in November 2011, I posted what songs I usually go running to, or what songs I listen to before I go running. Since that time, I have added many songs to my running list, and some of those on the original post have gone by the wayside.

Listed below are the songs I listen to most often before I go running. There is a common thread of hyperactive electronic beats and fast-tempo melodies or guitar riffs. (Lyrics I tend to ignore.) As someone who is a minimal runner--I don't wear headphones or bring anything extraneous (watch, phone, key, beverage) with me on a run--I try to listen to one or two of these songs repeatedly before I go out. Presently, the Weezer and New Order tracks dominate my pre-run ritual.


As before, what songs do you go running to?


And, having updated this list, I'm now going to run.



New Order - Temptation

Of Montreal - We Will Commit Wolf Murder


1000 Homo DJs (side project of Ministry) - Supernaut

Weezer - (If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To

Of Montreal - Heimdelsgate Like a Promethean Curse

Nice. I especially like the Weezer. I don't run, but I write to a lot of Chopin/Beethoven or sometimes Death/Sepultura or some hip hop that really bumps. haha :)

Haha. Thanks, Chris! I write to a lot of classical, too (Bach/Couperin mostly), but it would be pretty boring to run to.
