A little Travelin’ Music to get our final journey started

Well, it’s certainly been nice, and I want to say that I have very much appreciated the opportunity to serve as your host here. And to see us off on our final journeys, a little exit music from the boys down the road apiece ….

About REM, for reals? my active interest in REM’s every next move seems to have ended when Bill Berry left the band. It’s not that I thought they couldn’t manage without him—they’ve done some good stuff, I liked several tracks off “Accelerate,” for instance—but it’s gone from a “need to have” to a “nice to have” item in my shopping basket, so to speak.

As we make our descent, let us all join hands and follow Amvet’s lead as he bribes the gate keeper to let us all in.

Thank you.

If a big business CEO thought the world would end tommorrow what would he do? Go home and spend time with his family? No, he would continue to lie, cheat and steal and would go out with as many ill-gotten dollars in his hand as possible.

Immigration groups are calling for a boycott of GA. Good, Less tourists, less traffic, less foreigners. Win/Win in my book. I already have my own boycott, I buy no gas at small gas/convience stores, I don’t eat at mex joints, if I know something is foreign owned and I have other choices, I will shop where I think my money will go to Americans. My money-my choice.

Since Redneck is going up, while the rest of us are doomed to hell, this story should fit right in:

A guy dies and finds himself in front of the Devil. He tells the Devil he’s not sure he’s going to like it here in Hell. The Devil says, “Hey, we’ve got a bad reputation here. Do you like good food?” The guy says, “Yeah, love it!”

The Devil says, “Well, you’re gonna love Mondays. Mondays we have the best food; thick, juicy steaks cooked to order and the best barbeque you’ve ever had!” So this guy’s thinking maybe it’s not so bad.

Then the Devil says, “Do you like good drink?”, and the guy says, “Yeah!”. The Devil says, “Well, you’re gonna love Tuesdays. Tuesdays, we have the best micro-brews and the finest wines for you to savor”.

Now the guy is getting pretty excited, so the Devil says, “Do you like women?”, and the guy says, “You bet!” “Well”, the Devil says, “You’re gonna love Wednesdays. Wednesdays you have your choice of blondes, brunettes or redheads for the entire day!” “Go on!” the guy says.

So the Devil says, ‘Do you like battling big, hulking warriors all day, ultimately ending with your flesh being flailed from your still screaming carcass?”. The guy says, “Uh, no, not at all”.

And the Devil says, “Well, then, you’re gonna hate Thursdays . . . .”
