Life moves pretty fast when your DJ name is Speed.  The count isn’t at 140, but goes from one to twelve, and 1-2-12 over 12 songs and a year, over months.

This episode of the newly-dubbed 140 Fury brings to us the magic of the calendar taperoll.  (I just found out that you can buy it off ThinkGeek.) If I had a calendar taperoll, I would probably try to tape various life events on the insides of my head.  Because really, that’s the kind of innovation that we all REALLY need… at least, that is, if you’re forgetful.  Thankfully, I was blessed with a more-than-decent memory triggered by music, their attached lyrics, and its various life lessons.

Until that day comes where there are day planners and calendars implanted to our bodies (PDAs and handheld devices notwithstanding, but close), here are some songs that access my musical mind/moodmap over the last year.
