Is it sad that I'm pushing 40-years-old and...

...The Ramones can still make me drunkenly pogo around the room?
...I still get pissy about a certain Toronto hockey team chronically under-achieving?
...I think cartoons (The Simpsons, Home Movies, Roger Ramjet, The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle) are the epitome of American art?
...I think of people who don't wanna mix pills and booze, for fear of a bad reaction, as 'pussies'?
...I still check the music charts to see what 'the kids' are listening to these days?
...and the fact I automaticly assume that music won't affect 'the kids' the same way Pleased To Meet Me, Nevermind or The Joshua Tree affected me?
...and that I call them 'the kids'?
...I still think Elvis Costello is hip?
...insist on an open bar at my funeral and playing 'Should I Stay Or Should I Go?' as they walk me to my hole in the ground?
...the three people I'd like to get drunk with? Hunter Thompson, Henry Rollins and Joan of Arc.
Thank you all, goodnight...Rock 'n' Roll...Yeaaaaaah!

a little
no
of course not, there's nothing better on TV
no, but those people will say yes
absolutely not
a little
they are
can't help but admire a man who write the book every day, every day every day
the only sad thing will be if no one thinks to put up a stryofoam gravestone beside it that says 'Frank Grimey Grimes'
as long as you promise no pillaging late at night...

Okay - enough with this anonymous crap... that's you right Mark? Mark? It's you isn't it?

Anonymous said...

some folks are drawn to the internet for the very anonymity it affords...

luckily, they have the internet on computers now...

Barb said...

And by "some folks" you mean pedophiles, and pale friendless virgins, right?

Anonymous said...

while those people may indeed be among the anonymous, my meaning was much more general, as in just people who choose not to have to sign up for every little thing just to have their name on it...

So exactly which of the four people who read this blog are you keeping your identity a secret from? I know it's not me, cause I see through you like grandma's underpants.

I find it interesting hat you equate someone simply not signing their name to something as hiding from anyone... I find it equally interesting that it vexes you so that someone would post without having an identity...

I simply choose not to sign my name... the good folks at www.blogger.com afford me that opportunity...

Mark, it's not vexing me that "someone" would post anonymously, it is vexing me that you, Mark, are posting anonymously.
However, Mark, I'm choosing to let it go. Consider me no longer vexed, Mark! (I think our little arguement is distracting Brian - have you noticed he hasn't written anything but that terrible poem since this started?)
Ah vexlessness - sweet freedom!
