So Where the Hell Have You Been?

I don't remember you looking that good. I don't remember you with that rack. When did that happen? It might be time for that Playboy spread to help "revive" your career. Wait...should I have put the quotes around revive, or around career? Eh, probably works either way.

Recently Added Playlist

Keep an eye out for the new Arcade Fire "Neon Bible". It's the follow up to the first cd "Funeral", which quickly became one of my all time favorites. Yea, I thought it was that good.
The cd has leaked (all 11 songs) and they sound great. While I don't think they've surpased their previous effort, this is a worthy follow up and there is no "sophomore slump". The pipe organ is a nice touch, and it doesn't sound goth at all. After 2-3 "spins" there's a few songs that stand out. Keep the motor running reminds me immediately of National Lampoon's Vacation. Hell, the very last song "My Body is a Cage" is one that I innitially didn't like, but found it stuck in my head when I woke up. Strange.

Anyway, the cd is due March 6. I'm picking it up. Day 1 purchase.

The Life and Times of Cash McMogulson – Chapter 5

Catherine Harper has a new chapter up of our favorite Dallasite and I think it's a damn good one. Even leaves us with a cliffhanger.

2 Quick Thoughts

From this morning's train ride to work.

Hey greying balding old guy wearing kahki cargo pants and riding a souped up razor scooter. Really? A Razor scooter? What the hell is this, high school 1998? Thanks for the laugh buddy.

Hey fat girl, come are you ticklish? Yea I called you fat...(alright enough of the song)...you have to turn sideways to go down steps. What the hell is that? I wouldn't minde, but you did it in slo fraking motion. Jeez, pick up the pace already. I've seen this happen a few times before. Sometimes that person, actually they are usually women, is older although that wasn't the case this morning. You know, I think I figured out the ultimate test to decide if your fat, and I mean fat as not in the good way. When you have to go down steps 1 at a time, sideways, you got problems. I wouldn't be soo mad, if she didn't stop outside the door and continue to block everybody's path.

EDIT: I "drafted this yesterday, just to get it off my chest. Today, although I feel a little bad, I'm posting it anyway.

Pink Hard Hats

Why is it soo satisfying to give out pink hard hats to visitors to our jobsite? Why is it even more satisfying to give out pink hard hats to architects that visit our jobsite? Is it just me that gets a kick outta that? I even made a big deal about getting somebody's license so that they would be returned. "Oh, we'll be returning these" said one of the architects. Then I explained to them that we had a box (at least one, probably 2) of hot pink hard hats (the picture above is what we had now...I say had cause we're down to 2 or 3) and all of those have "walked off".

Somebody, somewhere has a trunk full of hard hats, both the nice Walton ones as well as the hot pink ones from our job. I've got a pretty good idea who it is.
