You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life. Clowns will try to diss you for it saying you gotta get down with the program, but fuck em, treat this place like a buffet and yous be on a diet. Take what you want and nothing extra, slam those oysters, but leave the bread sticks and dinner rolls behind. - Deuce Dropper

I'm much more of a nasty rotter in real life, especially with vapid or vacuous verbiage from the ill read & intellectually challenged. - TheGingerMan

Don't be a cheap cunt. - Deuce Dropper

I think someone may have said this one before.
But still, it's my favorite.

Lyrics:
And I'd give up forever to touch you,
Cause I know that you feel me somehow.
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be,
And I don't want to go home right now.

And all I can taste is this moment,
And all I can breathe is your life,
And sooner or later it's over,
I just don't want to miss you tonight.

And I don't want the world to see me,
Cause I don't think that they'd understand.
When everything's made to be broken,
I just want you to know who I am.

And you cant fight the tears that ain't coming,
Or the moment of the truth in your lies.
When everything feels like the movies,
Yeah you bleed just to know you're alive.

And I don't want the world to see me,
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand.
When everything's made to be broken,
I just want you to know who I am.

And I don't want the world to see me,
Cause I don't think that they'd understand.
When everything's made to be broken,
I just want you to know who I am.

And I don't want the world to see me,
Cause I don't think that they'd understand.
When everything's made to be broken,
I just want you to know who I am.
I just want you to know who I am.
I just want you to know who I am.
I just want you to know who I am.


I like this song but it always reminds me of that chessy film with Nicholas Cage and Meg Ryan.

I may have posted this one before. Still worth another listen.

And words that have no form are falling from my lips.




Gypsy gal, the hands of Harlem
Cannot hold you to its heat.
Your temperature is too hot for tamin'.
Your flamin' feet are burnin' up the street.





Through the mad, mystic hammering of the wild, ripping hail,
The sky cracked its forms in naked wonder.

I think this song is beautiful because it has a lot of sage advice in it. I think I'd better listen to it again right now as I could use some advice from an elder.

And it's odd man out.
You know that's the rule.
You can scream and you can shout,
But they'll only call you a crazy fool.
--Richard Manuel, Robbie Robertson



The last train is nearly due.
The underground is closing soon.

I'm not going to post the youtubes because they don't do the song justice. From the final show of diggnation (Congratulations to A and K but I hate you for quitting. Now what am I going to do on Wednesday nights? 6 years on both sides, you could have at least asked.)

If you aren't a fan of diggnation skip to 1 hour 13 minutes to hear what I'm referring to. Four dot will take you to mid-penultimate song.

Kina Grannis - In your arms

Even if you remotely like lykke li.

Finally we may have ours. A geek that can sing.

There is a truth and it's on our side,
Dawn is coming , open your eyes - José González

Make love your goal, not your gaol.
A wise man can learn more from himself than he could learn from anyone else, if only he seeks and listens.
Afar isn't as bad as it sounds, it is the longevity of it that hurts.
Smile and make others feel happy today.
Opinion is underrated since it is too difficult for most and not understood by the rest.
