Final’s Week Playlist

Next week is finals week for my summer courses.

I find that disaster movies put me is a pretty good frame of mind for exams.  Picture the scene:   I’m grading papers.   A student makes a silly mistake, and I stab a the offending error with my red pen thinking things like “I’m talking to myself up there!    Why?   Why did you do this?   You know better!”     Then I look up,  see the world exploding, and everything is put back into it’s proper perspective.

Of course, I grade faster if I’m just listening to music rather than watching something.   Here is my current test-grading playlist:

  • Drowning Pool – “Let the Bodies Hit the Floor”
  • Weird Al Yankovic
    • “White and Nerdy”
    • “All About the Pentiums”
  • Johnathon Coulton – “Skullcrusher Mountain”
  • Pink –  “So What”
  • NIN – “Head Like a Hole”
  • Death*Star – “The Quick and the Dead”
  • Lords of Acid – “The Power is Mine”
  • Mashups –
    • NIN vs   The Beetles – “Come Closer Together”
    • Jay-Z vs The Verve – “Dirt off your soulder/Bittersweet Symphony”
    • 50 cent vs Bee gees – “Stayin’ Alive in da Club”
    • AC/DC vs Queen – “Dirty Deeds will rock you”


That should keep me sane… ish.
