Got an idea for a song in a dream last night, here are the lyrics:

AT THE OMGWTF BBQ

Well, some folks say that cyberspace is a lovely place to meet
But, dang it, what good is it if there ain’t no place to eat?
If you’re in the mood for dinner then I’ll tell you what to do:
Come sit a spell at the OMGWTF BBQ.

There’s brisket in .tx.us and pulled pork in .nc
And salmon up in .wa and poutine in .qc
And lots of beer and shrimp that’s on the barbie in .au
All waiting for the OMGWTF BBQ.

It takes a lot of worldwide preparation
For this much culinary communication.
We hope to have it way more often than annual
If you can’t light your gas grill, RTFM.

If you’re fixin’ to write “I’m hungry” then IAWTP,
So step AFK and let’s all drink a toast
You’ll have a big ol’ time and be LOL too
If you come on down to the OMGWTF BBQ.

BRB now, ya hear?

Last night for some unknown reason I had not only the scenario but the actual music of "Timothy" -- written by Rupert Holmes (who also wrote "Escape (The Piña Colada Song)") and performed by a one-hit wonder band called The Buoys -- running through my head for what seemed like hours on end. A nightmare to end all nightmares, methinks.

So I go to do a little research, and I pull up the lyrics on the site linked from the Wikipedia entry, and what should appear in the "Sponsored Links" but an ad for Florida orange juice under the title "Food Pyramid". ;-)

I suppose the moral of this little tale is that these are times when we find humor where we can just to keep from screaming.

RIP [livejournal.com profile] jamesbeary and [livejournal.com profile] poohbearjim.

I am with you always, though my time on earth is done
I am with you always, though my race of life is run
Every time you think of me, whether in hope or in despair,
You'll always find me near you; I will always be there.

In the hustle and bustle of all of your daily affairs
You won't have to look far to find someone who honestly cares
And although you won't see me standing before you or hovering gently above,
Such is the power of our love...

That I am with you always, though the days be short or long
I am with you always, in a smile or in a song
Every time you dream of me, building your castles in the air
Whenever you are willing, I will always be there.

And though my body may be gone
My spirit and my memory live on
And will be yours eternally
As long as you remember me.

I am with you always, in the places where you are
I am with you always, when you wish upon a star
Every time you call on me, with a wish or with a prayer,
Wherever you should look for me, I will always be there!

Wishing a Happy New Year to all!

And now a musical interlude:

There was a man whose name was Lang
He bought a neon sign
Now Mr. Lang was very old
So they called it Old Lang's Sign.

[livejournal.com profile] gmjambear had a CD playing on his computer and it was playing "Trying To Get the Feeling Again" by Barry Manilow. I said to him, "Did it occur to you that Pfizer would want to use this song for a Viagra commercial?" ;-)

Especially the first verse:

Doctor, my woman is coming back home late today
Could you maybe give me something?
'Cause the feeling is gone and I must get it back right away
Before she sees...


Just a thought...

For those many who are, like myself, feeling more than a little defenseless after losing the trifecta -- Bush's election as President (by fair means or foul; exactly which, is irrelevant at this point), the increasing Republican majorities in both houses of Congress, and the eleven states enshrining anti-gay bigotry in their Constitutions -- this post by [livejournal.com profile] lostncove just may do some good.

And for those who would like a musical interlude to back up this profound statement, I can think of none better than the one I heard over and over again in Montreal:

Go out and tell our story.
Let it echo far and wide.
Make them hear you.
Make them hear you.
How justice was our battle
and how justice was denied.
Make them hear you.
Make them hear you. ...


("Make Them Hear You" from Ragtime, music by Stephen Flaherty, lyrics by Lynn Ahrens)

Now [livejournal.com profile] gmjambear and I have got this song (from Avenue Q by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx) running in our heads.

The Internet is for porn!
The Internet is for porn!
Why you think the Net was born?
Porn, porn, porn!
...

The Internet is for porn!
The Internet is for porn!
All these guys unzip their flies for
Porn, porn, porn!
...

The Internet is for porn!
The Internet is for porn!
So grab your dick and double-click for
Porn, porn, porn!


MAKE IT STOP!!!! ;-)
