Like Minds and Such

I pride myself on posting original things here. They may suck sometimes (only sometimes?) and they may vary from serious to abstract to diary entries, but I have not reprinted something someone else did…until right now.

Anyone who reads here knows my two greatest passions in my writing life are politics and pop culture. The only thing greater than those two things separate is the combination of the two in some “Simpsons-esque” explosion of abstraction and satire, but that is sadly usually above my ability to create. Lucky for all of us I found this at the Neil Rogers website. I know I am violating copyrights and such posting it here, but it is that good IMHO. Enjoy.

I think it is brilliant and I more than want everyone who stops by here to see it, I need you to. It is me and I am shocked and disappointed it is not original.

Speaking of original, I hope to return to originality soon…maybe even tomorrow, but don’t hold your breath. I mean it will be 24 hours at least and you will pass out and possibly hurt yourself. See, I may not update often, but I care.

Oh, at it seems Don McLean was right. The music did die in the 50's. Lemmings always know best.

The Big Bopper, Richie Valens, and Buddy Holly die in plane crash 4 (50%)
Hendrix, Joplin, and Morrison die months apart 0 (0%)
Aerosmith allows Run DMC to cover "Walk this Way" and joins in 1 (12%)
Def Leppard is formed 0 (0%)
MTV goes on the air 2 (25%)
Music has never been better 0 (0%)
Roth leaves Van Halen and Haggar joins 1 (12%)

PPS- Roth is joining Van Halen again, but Michael Anthony will not be there so it still is not a reunion. Wolfgang Van Halen (Eddie's son) does not count regardless of his last name.

You were right, Kan -- I loved it. I particularly liked Rich White Chicks on the Run. LOL. Listen, I can hold out for 24 hours. After that, it gets iffy. I "could" pass out, fall down, and hurt myself.:)

Sometimes, I think I'm on a different planet than you guys.

Only sometimes? I tend to think I am from a different planet quite often.

When I was a little girl, I thought I was from Mars. My mother worried about me a lot. I don't believe that any more. I think I came from Venus instead. I don't tell my mother.:)

Even though not be the creator of the funny, funny comic. Me believes that eventually you would have thought this one up fer yerself. It has the Lemming feel to it.
