Not much time this morning, got to start working right away.

Finally broke myself free of the ebay madness, am no longer drawn to Coach purses as I have a couple on the way that will suit my needs.  I'm super-glad of that, I tell you whut.  

Want to go to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to see The Doors exhibit, not sure if we can afford it.  Suddenly Brent's money-conscious, which throws me for a loop.  But he's doing it for "us", which is nice. 

Car brakes failed this weekend, not sure how much that is going to cost, as my stepdad seems convinced that he can fix them.  We shall see. 

One of my new favorite rock and roll lines is:

Sidewalk crouches at her feet
Like a dog that begs for something sweet.

One my LEAST favorite rock and roll lines is:

You've got a hubcap diamond star halo

What are your favorites and least favorites?

Brent is quite resentful that several bands have been passed over for the likes of Bono and Madonna, but I know he'd like to see it again. Especially with The Doors.

Oh, I am so jealous. They had quite a bit of Doors stuff there when I went but this new exhibit sounds really cool.

I'd love to go again but my husband has ZERO interest in it.

There's a killer on the road
His brain is squirmin' like a toad

Love the Doors...

I can't think of any rock song lyrics I hate off the top of my head, but pop songs are full of annoying nonsensical lyrics. I really dislike pop music these days.

I guess the song I'm referencing is pop more than rock. Eh, I don't care. Just whatever you hate!

There are a LOT of bad lyrics out there. Pretty much Peter Frampton ever wrote is bad. "When someone drops a cup and I submerge" - WTF?

But there's a lot of gold too: John Lennon, Ray Davies, Tom Waits.

And this by Ian Tyson:

Four strong winds that blow lonely
Seven seas that run high
All those things that don't change
Come what may
But our good times are all gone
And I'm bound for movin' on
I'll look for you if I'm ever back this way

Think I'll go down to Alberta
Where there's good times in the fall
I've got some friends that I can stay with workin' for
But I wish you'd change your mind
If I ask you one more time
But we've been through that a hundred times or more

If I get there before the snow flies
And if things are lookin' good
I could meet you if I sent you down the fare
But by then it would be winter
There ain't too much for you to do
And those winds sure can blow cold way out there

Four strong winds that blow lonely
Seven seas that run high
All those things that don't change
Come what may
But our good times are all gone
And I'm bound for movin' on
I'll look for you if I'm ever back this way

Any line from Big Time Operator by Keith Hampshire(?), as it sounds like it was written by a six year-old who expects a prize for it because he's shown that he can rhyme.

From Tin Man by America; " - and cause never was the reason for the evening/of the tropic of Sir Galahad... "

And from The Eve Of Destruction; " My blood's so mad, feels like cogulatin'; I'm just sittin' here, con-tem-platin' ... " (Barry McGuire's best was Green, Green, while still with The Main Street Singers The New Christie Minstrels)
