I believe that the Minuteman is generally referred to as a missile, not a rocket. :tongue:
I did a paper once about graffiti. During the Watergate scandal someone had written "Tricky Dicky" below which someone wrote "Only Pat knows for sure." Only Tsu knows for sure, hum?

Evo, just what the hell were you using for a flash when taking your new avatar picture? It looks as if someone set off a supernova... :tongue:
Evo, that's cool--how did you do that!? :biggrin:

I heard that he decided to try oral sex, but it took him 4 tries to get it down pat.

I'm in the mood for Godsmack tonight. It seems most fitting since I'm sitting here in my office with only one other faculty member around who I've run into tonight. (Where are all the slaves...er...I mean grad students?)

The first song that came to mind was Serenity.
I like that song too. Godsmack has a nice gritty sound, though some of their songs sound alike to me. Girl, do like the slaves and escape!

You look so much alike. It's a very artistic technique--cool!

A most excellent tune. I always associate it with 'More Than a Feeling' by Boston, but maybe that's just because I have them both on the same tape.

Led Zeppelin's "Ramble On" - for a song, i.e. one with lyrics.

As for a tune, I might consider Joe Satriani's "Raspberry Jam Delta-V" - a really KICK-*$$, high-octane jam for cruising down the highway!

Joe Satriani is my idol! but if I listened to Raspberry Jam Delta-V while driving, I'm sure I'd get a speeding ticket, perhaps several.

I feel the need to post i'm an a$$hole lyrics by dennis leary:

Folks
I'd like to sing a song about the American Dream
About me
About you
About the way our American hearts beat way down in the bottoms of our chests
About that special feeling we get in the cockles of our hearts
Or maybe below the cockles
Maybe in the sub-cockle area
Maybe in the liver
Maybe in the kidneys
Maybe even in the colon
We don't know

I'm just a regular joe
With a regular job
I'm your average white
Suburbanite slob
I like football, and porno, and books about war
I've got an average house
With a nice hardwood floor
My wife, and my job
My kids, and my car
My feet on the table
And a Cuban cigar
But sometimes that just ain't enough
To keep a man like me interested
Oh no, no way, uh uhh
No, I gotta go out and have fun
At someone else's expense
Oh yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah

I drive really slow
In the ultra-fast lane
While people behind me are going insane

I'm an *******
(he's an *******, what an *******)
I'm an *******
(he's an *******, such an *******)

I use public toilets
And I piss on the seat
I walk around in the summer time sayin', "How about this heat?"

I'm an *******
(he's an *******, what an *******)
I'm an *******
(he's the worlds biggest *******)

Sometimes I park in the handicapped spaces
While handicapped people
Make handicapped faces

I'm an *******
(he's an *******, what an *******)
I'm an *******
(he's a big ****ing *******)

Maybe I shouldn't be singin' this song
Ranting and raving and carrying on
Maybe they're right when they tell me I'm wrong...
...
NAAAHHHHH!

I'm an *******
(he's an *******, what an *******)
I'm an *******
(he's the world's biggest *******)

You know what I'm gonna do?
I'm gonna get myself a 1967 Cadilac El Dorado Convertable
Hot pink!
With whale skin hub caps
An all leather cow interior
And big brown baby seal eyes for headlights
YEAH!
And I'm gonna drive around in that baby
At 115 miles per hour
Getting one mile per gallon
Sucking down Quarter Pounder cheeseburgers from McDonalds in the old-fashioned non-biodegradable Styrofoam containers
And when I'm done sucking down those grease-ball burgers
I'm gonna wipe my mouth with the American flag
And then I'm gonna toss the Styrofoam containers right out the side
And there ain't a Goddamn thing anybody can do about it
You know why?
'Cause we got the bombs, that's why!
Two words: Nuclear ****in' Weapons
Okay!?
Russia, Germany, Romania
They can have all the Democracy they want
They can have a big Democracy cake walk
Right through the middle of Tienemen Square
And it won't make a lick of difference
Because we got the bombs
Okay!?
John Wayne's not dead
He's frozen!
And as soon as we find a cure for cancer We're gonna thaw out "The Duke"
And he's gonna be pretty pissed off
You know why?
Have you ever taken a cold shower?
Well, multiply that by 15 million times
That's how pissed off "The Duke"'s gonna be
I'm gonna get "The Duke"
And John Cassavetes
And Lee Marvin
And Sam Peckinpah
And a case of whiskey
And drive down to Texas
And-
(Hey, Hey! You know you really are an *******)
Why don't you just shut-up and sing the song, pal?
You know, the whole time I thought I was that *******
And it turns out it was him
What an *******!

I'm an *******
(he's an *******, what an *******)
I'm an *******
(he's the worlds biggest *******)

A - SS - HO - LE!
Everybody!!
A - SS - HO - LE!

*dog barking noises*

I'm an ******* and proud of it!




I'm gettin a warning for this, i can see it, but who cares, its funny.

I met him long ago. He's a strange and shy little fella. Nice, though. I was in the studio when he recorded Time Machine.

Take the skinheads bowling, take them bowling!
("Take the Skinheads Bowling," Camper van Beethoven)

A very nice song.

The lyrics, in case you have not heard:

Every day I get up and pray to Jah
And he increases the number of clocks by exactly one
Everybody's coming home for lunch these days
Last night there were skinheads on my lawn

(chorus:)
Take the skinheads bowling
Take them bowling
Take the skinheads bowling
Take them bowling

Some people say that bowling alleys got big lanes
[Got big lanes, got big lanes]
Some people say that bowling alleys all look the same
[Look the same, look the same]
There's not a line here that goes here that rhymes with anything
[Anything, anything]
I had a dream last night, but I forget what it was
[What it was, what it was]

(chorus)

I had a dream last night about you my friend
I had a dream, I wanted to sleep next to plastic
I had a dream, I wanted to lick your knees
I had a dream, it was about nothing

(chorus)

(chorus)

Good song by Country Joe and the Fish (Vietnam Era)

The Fish Cheer & I-Feel-Like-I'm-Fixin'-To-Die Rag

Gimme an F!

F!
Gimme an I!

I!
Gimme an S!

S!
Gimme an H!

H!
What's that spell ?

FISH!
What's that spell ?

FISH!
What's that spell ?

FISH!
Yeah, come on all of you, big strong men,
Uncle Sam needs your help again.
He's got himself in a terrible jam
Way down yonder in Vietnam
So put down your books and pick up a gun,
We're gonna have a whole lotta fun.

And it's one, two, three,
What are we fighting for ?
Don't ask me, I don't give a damn,
Next stop is Vietnam;
And it's five, six, seven,
Open up the pearly gates,
Well there ain't no time to wonder why,
Whoopee! we're all gonna die.

Well, come on generals, let's move fast;
Your big chance has come at last.
Gotta go out and get those reds —
The only good commie is the one who's dead
And you know that peace can only be won
When we've blown 'em all to kingdom come.

And it's one, two, three,
What are we fighting for ?
Don't ask me, I don't give a damn,
Next stop is Vietnam;
And it's five, six, seven,
Open up the pearly gates,
Well there ain't no time to wonder why
Whoopee! we're all gonna die.

Huh!

Well, come on Wall Street, don't move slow,
Why man, this is war au-go-go.
There's plenty good money to be made
By supplying the Army with the tools of the trade,
Just hope and pray that if they drop the bomb,
They drop it on the Viet Cong.

And it's one, two, three,
What are we fighting for ?
Don't ask me, I don't give a damn,
Next stop is Vietnam.
And it's five, six, seven,
Open up the pearly gates,
Well there ain't no time to wonder why
Whoopee! we're all gonna die.

Well, come on mothers throughout the land,
Pack your boys off to Vietnam.
Come on fathers, don't hesitate,
Send 'em off before it's too late.
Be the first one on your block
To have your boy come home in a box.

And it's one, two, three
What are we fighting for ?
Don't ask me, I don't give a damn,
Next stop is Vietnam.
And it's five, six, seven,
Open up the pearly gates,
Well there ain't no time to wonder why,
Whoopee! we're all gonna die.

I used to listen to that song because one of my sisters downloaded it but annoyingly she stopped the download halfway through. So after the second Whoopee! We're all gonna die, the song ends.

Crushing Day is a great cruising song, nd so is Crystal Planet. Friends is a bit too slow. But Raspberry Jam Delta-V is the best!

Good song by Country Joe and the Fish (Vietnam Era)
The Fish Cheer & I-Feel-Like-I'm-Fixin'-To-Die Rag
yeah, popular in my day. They played it at Woodstock in '69.
