It's like Bob Dylan, Jim Croce and Cat Stevens had a lovechild and taught him to sing "The Pusher", only using different words and music.

And what in the hell is going on in the background? Sounds like someone running a cat through a ringer while a jackhammer goes off.

Thanks, Glatt, that was awesome.

Really? Wow. What I love about Yes are the 'intertwining' melodies. It makes my synesthesia go nuts. When I find myself humming a Yes song, it's usually the bass line. That always impresses me when the catchiest melody is being executed on the stodgy old bass guitar.

This is an awesome song. But it has one of those choruses that just burrows right into your brain and then settles in for the duration.

Well...I think so anyway.

For no reason at all the other morning, I woke up with 'Today I Started Loving You Again' by Merle Haggard in my head. And it's still there, in the back.

Don't get me wrong, I dig me some Hag, but, it had been like years since I heard this song. Maybe I heard it somewhere and didn't hear it when I heard it? I played it that day for, literally, an hour or more, didn't work, still there.

I had Grav's Merle Haggard track buzzing round my head for a few days.

Then it was dislodged by this:

Saw that the other day.
Can't 'remember where.
Luckily it didn't embed (famous last words.)
Anyway I've heard enough female foxes scream during mating session the whole premise just made me suck my teeth. They scream like a woman being butchered.

I have an oldie.
Good Charlotte, Lifestyles of the Rich and the Famous. The sire of Nicole Ritchie's children no-less.. Narked me than and does now. Wonder if he still advocates robbing mansions...?

Still, they have a point.
And with two back to back crack high profile crack buying stories in a week I can't shake the line, "And did you know if you were caught and you were smokin' crack
McDonalds wouldn't even want to take you back
You could always just run for mayor of D.C." from ma heid.

Or Toronto, or Methodist Minister and former Chairman of the Co-op bank, which who closed my account when I let it go overdrawn... (yeah yeah yeah, that's grudge talk).

Sing-along.

Exactly! I've heard that song so many times in the last three months. Every time I hear it, I just want "suck my teeth" or "punch them in the face." Foxes sound like damn foxes, you tools.

The worst is the "vixen's scream" when it's nice out and you have the window open, and there's one moving through the neighborhood at 2am.

Hah! Geckering!
Squirrels do that too. I always thought it was trash talking because they have such little Tyrannosaurus front legs.

Minifob brought home some schoolwork about the folk character John Henry. Except in his writing he spelled it "Henery" every time. So I've had this stuck in my head since then...
