Well, I just finished watching the entire 7th season of "24". I was starving. So I fixed some toast. Does Jack make it to season 8?

wv: ingwoo.

Looks like I am all alone here at the Althouse Alehouse.

Feeling proud and full of himself Lem posted the "I love the blog sample" he had done just a short while earlier at another tread.

Moderate opinions in an immoderate voice.

I love this blog.

We got winners, we got losers
Chain smokers and boozers (oops)
And we got yuppies, we got bikers
We got thristy hitchhikers
And the girls next door dress up like movie stars critiked by Robin givhan no less

Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this blog

We got cowboys, we got truckers
Broken-hearted fools (Crack ;) and suckers
And we got hustlers, we got fighters (better known as trolls)
Early birds and all-nighters (amba, Laura, Beth ;)
And the veterans talk about their battle scars (been here since the beginning)

Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this blog

[Chorus:]
I love this blog
It's my kind of place
Just clicking on the links
Puts a big smile on my face
It ain't too far, come as you are
Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this blog

I've seen short skirts, (as in NO men shorst) we got high-techs
Blue-collar boys and rednecks (alledgedly)
And we got lovers Althouse + Meade, lots of lookers (look and don't comment)
And I've even seen dancing girls and hookers (its archived ;)
And we like to drink our beer from a mason jar (ok.. the intertubes are too small still ;)

Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this blog
Yes I do


I may not 'sample' as good as Althouse but I'm getting there.

Deb said...

Lem said...

Jason (the commenter) said...

I'm reading about all the monetary benefits Britain will receive for releasing the Lockerbie bomber and wondering if we shouldn't call British tourists out on this.

They did the same for us with Iraq, why not return the favor?

If anybody has any doubts about the greatness of this blog just check out this conversation from the other day.

Watcha Gonna Do For Me (when the chips are down).

All night and day
Just chippin away
Its all in a days work
Tryin hard to defend
The time that I spend alone

The crown that you lose
Exploiting the blues
Wont get the job done
As hard as it bites
Im keepin my sights on you

Chorus:
What cha gonna do for me
What cha gonna do for me
What cha gonna do for me
When the chips are down

"On what planet do you spend most of your time?"

Go Insane

Two kinds of people in this world
Winners... losers
I lost my power in this world
Cause I did not use it
So I go insane
Like I always do
And I call your name
Shes a lot like you

Two kinds of trouble in this world
Living... dying
I lost my power in this world
And the rumors are flying
So I go insane
Like I always do
And I call your name
Shes a lot like you

So I go insane
Like I always do
And I call your name
Shes a lot like you
Shes a lot like you
Shes a lot like you
Shes a lot like you...

Just checking in.

And out.

On the road.

Mini vacation in the Bahamas.

No scuba, but snorkel peeks at fishies.

Nice song Lem.

Goodnight Deb & the rest.

WV - elopled
Is that what Althouse and Meade did?

Lem said...

"I'm dreading watching the skit where Michael Ian Black walks down the street in his underwear to some song other than the Breeders' 'Cannonball'..."

The Breeders - CannonBall (its a kick ass song)

Ahoo Ahooh Ahooh Ahooh Ahooh Ahooh
Spitting in a wishing well
Blown to hell... crash
I'm the last splash
I know you, little libertine
I know you're a real koo koo

Hey now, hey now, ...
Want you, Koo Koo, Can nonball [2x]
In the shade [4x]

I know you, little libertine
I know you're a cannonball
I'll be you're whatever you want
The bong in this Reggae Song

Hey now, hey now, ...
Want you, Koo Koo, Can nonball [2x]
In the shade [4x]

"Death panel" rhetoric — and other dysphemisms

We are doing this for the children.

How can you say no to the children or to "God" for that matter?

"If zombies actually existed, an attack by them would lead to the collapse of civilisation unless dealt with quickly and aggressively."

Constant Craving.

Even through the darkest phase
Be it thick or thin
Always someone marches brave
Here beneath my skin

Constant craving
Has always been

Maybe a great magnet pulls
All souls towards truth
Or maybe it is life itself
That feeds wisdom
To its youth

Constant craving
Has always been

Craving
Ah ha
Constant craving
Has always been

Constant craving
Has always been
Constant craving
Has always been


this song always sounds fresh to me.

"That's fried mush, baby! You're a Hoosier now."

Little River Band - Lady.

Look around you, look up here
Take time to make time
Make time to be there
Look around, be a part
Feel for the winter
But don't have a cold heart

And I love you best
You're not like the rest
You're there when I need you
You're there when I need
I'm gonna need you

A long time ago
I had a lady to love
She made me think of things
I never thought of
Now she's gone and I'm on my own
A love song has come into my mind
A love song
It was there all the time

So lady
Let me take a look at you now
You're there on the dance floor
Making me want you somehow
Oh lady
I think it's only fair
I should say to you
Don't be thinkin' that I don't want you
'Cause maybe I do

[Instrumental Interlude]

Look around, come to me
I have no answers
But know where I wanna be
I look around, play a part
I was born in the winter
And cooled by a warm heart

And I love you best
You're not like the rest
You're there when I need you
You're there when I need
I'm gonna need you

So lady
Let me take a look at you now
You're there on the dance floor
Making me want you somehow
Oh lady
I think it's only fair I should say to you
Don't be thinkin' that I don't want you
'Cause maybe I do
Don't be thinkin' that I don't want you
Lady I do

Meade is our dude!

Lem said...

Just in case you don't know about a dude watch "The Big Lebowski" (1998)

The dude is the biggest compliment a man can give another man w/o being misinterpreted.

Meade is our Dude. (and i dont think i need any witnesses to declare him so either :)

Lem said...

Tom Ridge has a book to sell and a book, to sell, needs a big, juicy, media-ready nugget...

Kiss And Tell

Ten cents a dance
It´s the only price to pay
Why give ´em more
When it´s only love for sale?
Adam and eve
It´s the oldest game in town
Just a one way street
To a faded magazine
Kiss and tell
Money talks - it never lies
Kiss and tell
Give and take - eye for an eye
Fever - the heat of the night
Dreamer - stealer of sighs
One public face
In a private limousine
Flash photograph
It´s the only light you see
No secret life
There´s no secret you can steel
Your lips are moving
But I will never know
What they mean
Kiss and tell
Money talks - and love...it burns
Kiss and tell
Give and take - we live and learn
Kiss and tell
We never lie
Eye foe an eye
Blood on a nail
Kiss me again..


This is an "everybody does it" tag.

When the Woodwards have to compete with insiders what happens to the truth?

Lem said...

I'm looking for the girl in the boy body.

I wont quit till i find her.. its a she (or so i hope)

Lem said...

I have a candidate but she's not on you tube. sadly.

MamaM said...

Hey, Lem, I just found your link to Toby's song. I first thought you wrote the Love This Blog song yourself...but the way it is, It's All Good, It's Alright. It prompted me to write two more verses for you to spin on the midnight turntable. I left them for you on the table with the muffins

Lem said...

i have her/him as though she/him is telling the story.

Lem said...

People can say whatever they like but the truth will remain, which is that my child is a girl."

Golden Earring - Twilight Zone

Somewhere in a lonely hotel room
there’s a guy starting to realize
That eternal fate has turned it's back on him
It's two a.m.

It's two a.m. the fear has gone
I'm sitting here waitin' the gun still warm
Maybe my connection is tired of taken chances
Yeah there's a storm on the loose sirens in my head
I'm wrapped up in silence all circuits are dead
I cannot decode
my whole life spins into a frenzy

Help I'm steppin' into the twilight zone
The place is a madhouse
Feels like being blown
My beacon's been moved under moon and star
Where am I to go
Now that I've gone too far
Help I'm steppin' into the twilight zone
The place is a madhouse
Feels like being blown
My beacon's been moved under moon and star
Where am I to go
Now that I've gone too far
Soon you will come to know
When the bullet hits the bone
Soon you will come to know
When the bullet hits the bone

I'm falling down a spiral
destination unknown
A double crossed Messenger
all alone
I can't get no connection
I can't get through
Where are you
Well the night weighs heavy on his guilty mind
This far from the borderline
And when the hitman comes
He knows damn well he has been cheated
And he says
.

Lem said...

a thunder storm just flickered the power but my computer continued unfazed.

i think its a sign i should look for one more interpretation in the Althouse closet ;)

wv gessonic = dead men dancing ;)

Lem said...

I'm sampling ObamaCare.

Lem said...

Obama would like you to see government as religion.

Promises In The Dark


Never again, isnt that what you said?
Youve been through this before (HillaryCare)
An you swore this time youd think with your head
No one, would ever have you again (Perot)
And if takin was gonna get done
Youd decide where and when (not the canadian doc Howard Dean)
Just when you think you got it down
Your heart securely tied and bound
They whisper, promises in the dark (more like death panels)

Armed and ready, you fought love battles in the night (protest)
But too many opponents made you weary of the fight (the msm can)
Blinded by passion, you foolishly let someone in (the same msm)
All the warnings went off in your head (wear the strap to the meet)
Still you had to give in

Just when you think you got it down
Resistance nowhere to be found
They whisper, promises in the dark (you will still have your insurance, we never take away insurance)

But promises, you know what theyre for (get re-elected)
It sounds so convincing, but you heard it before
Cause talk is cheap and you gotta be sure
And so you put up your guard
And you try to be hard (protest)
But your heart says try again (its hard to say no)

You desperately search for a way to conquer the fear (you don't hate anybody)
No line of attack has been planned to fight back the tears (the repubis are useless)
Where brave and restless dreams are both won and lost (they say public option is dead one day only to sat it's not the next)
On the edge is where it seems its well worth the cost (but you know in your gut is not)
Just when you think you got it down
Your heart in pieces on the ground
They whisper, promises in the -- dark (and its deja vu all over again)
.

QUESTION: What is just about as far away from "My Dinner With Andre" as one can get?

ANSWER: True Bedroom Confessions #6.

Pogo said...

The new Obamacare Cash for Codgers program will give you $4500 if you turn Grandma over for hospice care instead of a hip surgery.

Less costly and more death-efficient, pain pills and hand-holding promise to reduce Medicare costs by one-third compared to expensive and wasteful spending on bypasses, cancer treatments, and oxygen for frail elders.

Family members who successfully sign up their aged relative for Blue Pill Hospice will receive $4500. There is no limit on the number of elderly that can be turned in for the program, and you need not be a relative to participate.

On a soft and hanging day
The plangent meadows sigh
Under a no comment sky --
Imperatives are far away.

But but but I thought crazy is the best in bed, no?

No. Not for me, anyway, ricpic.

I cry every time I watch "West Side Story."

I am something of an incurable romantic, which I consider a weakness.

Lem, thanks for the shout-out.

The picture puts me in mind of this poem from my childhood:

Queen Anne, Queen Anne, has washed her lace
(She chose a summer's day)
And hung it in a grassy place
To whiten, if it may.

Queen Anne, Queen Anne, has left it there,
And slept the dewy night;
Then waked, to find the sunshine fair,
And all the meadows white.

Queen Anne, Queen Anne, is dead and gone
(She died a summer's day),
But left her lace to whiten in
Each weed-entangled way!

- Mary Leslie Newton
