You should switch seats.

Friday song time!

If Eve sees this, she might like it, it's a band she got to hear live (not that I'm jealous... much). Just first verse and chorus for now, until I grab the cd liner notes:

I've got wheels
Of polished steel
I've got tires that hold the road
I've got seats that selflessly
Hold my friends
And a trunk that can carry
The heaviest of loads...

I've got a mind that can
Drive you to your house
And a heart that can
Bring you red flowers,
I am selfless and true
And earnest and good
But under my hood,
lurks internal combustion power...

Chorus: For Satan is my motor
(Satan is my motor)
Hear my motor purr
Satan is my motor
(Satan is my motor)
Satan is the only one
Who seems to understand...

That song...

I was just listening to that album a few days ago... for that particular song, I always substute the word infernal for internal.. I think it works better.
My favorite tune on that album is "Sheep Go To Heaven". Oddly enough, by the Chinese calender, I'm a goat.
Posted by brian65401 on Fri, 07/29/2005 - 6:16pm.
The Chinese calendar bad. Born in early Jan of 1971 still leaves me as a dog, and I'm OK with that. But calendar or no, you call my wife and Ox and you have to deal with her.

Yea! Good song, but I prefer another one on the same album. "When You Sleep". Switching topics, what is Dragon Beard Candy? There's an ad for it here where I'm typing. I'll have to click on it. Brb.
Great minds
Posted by Jon on Tue, 08/02/2005 - 1:04pm.
Mia, I had the same ad on another response I typed. It's really really expensive candy... something like 20 bucks for 6 pieces.

It would probably be more cost effective to add gold dust to your cocoa. Pretend you're Auric Goldfinger while you do it, and everyone comes out on top.

Again, anonymous comments are relegated to some kind of In Passing limbo, so this is the first we've seen of you in the past... weeks? Month +?

Welcome back, big guy.

or, perhaps, sprite.

sadly, most people can't seem to navigate at ALL. which i imagine leads to much spite and not a little self-righteousness. hee! (thanks, saint.)

i'm kinda with d.f. on this, though. many's the time i've navigated somewhere/something (having, of course, varying degrees of success) with only the very stubbornest of spiteful, determined, audible declarations of my non-loserlost status to guide me. i can be quite pathological about it.

seriously, this is one reason there are people inhabiting nearly every imaginable corner of the globe. beaten out only by "gee, i wonder what's over there?" and "i hate the neighbors. it was certainly never MY idea to have neighbors AT. ALL.", one of the top reasons for humans being scattered everywhere is "i am not lost! i meant to run out of gas/horse feed/the will to take one more miserable step in this VERY spot!!"

yes, i do believe it's higher than "damn, those delicious furry creatures are migrating again."
Delicious creatures
Posted by Somnambulist on Sat, 06/25/2005 - 2:57pm.
Would the creatures in question happen to be Perfectly Normal Beasts? Following those could be a very interesting way to travel.

I tend to use the subconscience method of navigation; I wander aimlessly until I find what I didn't know I was looking for. As you can imagine, this is hardly practical... but it works for me.

you misheard and she said soley on spice?
Posted by copperhead on Mon, 08/15/2005 - 9:17am.
if you navigate on spice, you end up lookin kind of funny. the blue eyes are cool, but the living in a tank just isn't.

i went to war for my country and all i got was this lousy stump.

Excellent Dune reference.

Speaking of which, what the hell ever happened to Kyle Maclachlan?

After Blue Velvet, he was... where?

Posted by Saint on Mon, 08/15/2005 - 8:47pm.
Uh, well, Twin Peaks, and Showgirls--there's a good career move--but can't think of much else.

IMDB to the rescue!
Posted by Jon on Wed, 08/24/2005 - 9:04am.
Doesn't seem like he's been in much recently...http://imdb.com/name/nm0001492/

I remembered he was on "Sex and the City" for a while.
For movies, it seems like he's been in some tv-movies that are failed pilots for series. Apparently he had a voice-over part in Grand Theft Auto III! Nowadays, having Rockstar games on the resume isn't a good thing...

Posted by Matt on Mon, 08/15/2005 - 10:12pm.
My point exactly.

Sad, really.
What about...
Posted by Desert Fox on Fri, 06/24/2005 - 12:16pm.
What about the type of navigation where you're thinking the whole time, "I'm not lost. I'm not lost. I'm not lost, dammit! If I just keep driving, eventually I'll end up somewhere I recognize! I'm not lost!"

Not that I've ever done that. Well, OK, I have. Multiple times.

Geez, that could really end u
Posted by shelley on Fri, 06/24/2005 - 11:03am.
Geez, that could really end up messy. I mean could you imagine, "What do you mean I can't eat that dog poo? Yea, well just watch me!" I'm sure there are many more but I can't think of any really good one right now..
Posted by paul on Thu, 06/23/2005 - 7:24pm.
Perhaps she was referring to navigating through life? I know many who navigate through theirs based primarily on spite, at least. Makes for an interesting life, not in a positive way.
Inevitable Seinfeld reference...

George Castanza did once. All the way to the Hamptons.
No, you can't
Posted by Saint on Thu, 06/23/2005 - 12:30pm.
But throw in a dash of self-righteousness and it's doable.

Posted by Somnambulist on Thu, 06/23/2005 - 10:25am.
That would depend on where you were going and/or who you were with...

I can just imagine the response to this, though:
"I can't, huh? Just watch me!"
