Whale fluke

So that's when it started...

In 1973, not only did I debut, so did the best-known version of the Oscar Meyer wiener song.

(It had different lyrics before that, according to Wikipedia: the first version from 1963 went Oh, I wish I were an Oscar Mayer wiener/ That is what I truly want to be/ 'Cause if I were an Oscar Mayer wiener/ Everyone would be in love with me.

((A more sinister verse was added in 1965: Oh, I'm glad I'm not an Oscar Mayer wiener/ That is what I'd never want to be/ Cause if I were an Oscar Mayer wiener/ There would soon be nothing left of me!))

This history lesson has been prompted by KINK FM's "KINK XL" celebration of its 40 years on the air. So I'm getting reminded of when a bunch of stuff debuted.

A rare grumpy post

Blah blah stupid money blah blah stupid bills blah blah stupid insecurities blah blah stupid people blah blah I'm gonna have some fucking popcorn now.

Hi. I'm working my way out of a mood. Helping improve it are the radio (Cort and Fatboy, no I'm not actually dating either of them though you may think so I link to them so much, but they're good guys and funny guys and I can use the laughing), plus the cable on right now with Paul Simon singing on The Colbert Report. Nice.

By the way, none of the stupid people I'm referring to are reading this.

Time to stop being so fucking emo. (I don't even have a piano so I can be emo at a piano, so why be emo?)

Earworms are EVIL, man.

"The thunder rolled 'cause I've got friends in low places who are in a vessel goin' against the grain at a thing called the rodeo."

The above is what started flowing from my mind and my mouth after a 1993 college road trip when the only music we had in the van was a tape of a Garth Brooks album.

The preceding was brought to you by my increasingly-sleep-needing mind.
