A Pocket Full of Murder

This is your brain on country music

The "country & western" genre and I have long occupied separate spheres, with the kindest feeling on my part being one of polite distaste. I like Blue Rodeo, but that's about as close as I willingly come to that particular style of music. So when I was flipping through radio stations the other day, I would ordinarily have breezed right past our local country station...

Except that they were playing this.

Guess what I've had running through my head incessantly for the past week and a half? And have been inflicting shamelessly on all my friends and relatives, so that they too may share my obsession pain?

I may have to buy the album. It's got nine out of nine five-star reviews on Amazon, how bad can it be?

But really all of this is a GIP, because I just made an icon out of one of the very few good bits of last week's LOST, and when I'd finished playing around with it it looked amusingly like the cover art for Kate and Sawyer's hit country single (oh, come on, you know they so would make one if either of them could sing, and if there weren't more immediate concerns like mysterious black horses, daddy issues, and self-righteous psycho doctors to worry about).

Unfortunately, with this one I've broken my general rule of not putting text on an icon unless it's legible, but JohannSparkling is pretty, so I don't really care if it's useless. (Which is also how I feel about Kate, come to think of it...)
