JFRO'S FAVORITE LYRICS


This was from a Facebook post by Outlaw Renegade Radio that I saw on K. R.W.'s Facebook feed. Not sure what constitutes "one line", but I don't really care. Can you name all the songs? Answers are linked at the end. 

  • "But there's no danger, it's a professional career, though it could be arranged, with just a word in Mister Churchill's ear."
  • "Now up jumped the U.S. representative, he's the one with the tired eyes, 747 put him in that condition, flyin' back from a peacekeepin' mission."
  • "If I could stand to be on my own, then I would probably just leave you alone."
  • "Why is the bedroom so cold, you've turned away on your side."
  • "I drank a jar of coffee, And then I took some of these."
  • "He lies on his side, is he trying to hide, in fact it's the earth, which he's known since birth."
  • "I'm all lost in the supermarket, I can no longer shop happily, I came in here for the special offer, guaranteed personality."
  • "A hot summer's day and sticky black tarmac, feeding ducks in the park and wishing you were far away."
  • "She ain't nothin nice, undercover vice done picked her up twice."
  • "I’m a collector of things that most folks ignore, one man’s ceiling is another man’s floor."
  • "I remember, ooh, how the darkness doubled, I recall, lightning struck itself."
  • "You ask what is this? Mind your business."
  • "Some people go to bed with Lucifer, then they cry, cry, cry when they don't greet the day with God."
  • "See, I remember you when you were the young new face but you do like to slumber, don’t you?"
  • "Well, the moonlight ain't so great (since you're gone)"
  • "The halls smell like piss, the rooms are underlit, still it must be nice, you're such a perfect fit"
  • "Let's drive to the factory that thrived when plastic was a fad, we'll throw rocks at the seagulls and sit along the blackened riverside."
  • "I knew that you loved me, guess I was mistaken, twilight is the only love I know."
  • "I loved you, well never mind."
  • "I can't still be drunk at five, oh, I guess I surely can."
  • "You're a flame that never fades, jungle red's a deadly shade."
  • "This wheel spins, let me off, It's not the lack of trying, can't put my finger on it.""
  • What's this ol' world comin' to, things just ain't the same, anytime the hunter gets captured by the game.
  • "I am a patient boy, I wait, I wait, I wait, I wait, my time is like water down a drain."
  • "Why do good things never wanna stay, some things you lose, some things you give away."
  • "And if I only could, I'd make a deal with God, and I'd get him to swap our places."
  • "Knock down the old grey wall, be a part of it all, nothing to say, nothing to see, nothing to do."
  • "Last week my life had meaning, it was beautiful and so sweet."
  • "Someone tell me why I do the things that I don't wanna do, when you're around me, I'm somebody else"

The answer key is here.

MY BUBBLE

This is real heavy metal, by the way . So, this guy whose name I swear I'd never heard but appeared to have gone to my high school tried to friend me on Facebook. His main interests were the band Stryper and Republicanism, so I didn't add him. I mean, really, Stryper ? I thought teens in the 80s only listened to them because they liked metal and their parents forbade any other band as a direct path to the worship of Satan. When you leave home, you throw away their records and listen to real metal. But then I read this article that said we are all getting trapped in a bubble of like-minded people who parrot our ideas back to us, due to social networks and rss feeds and apps only giving us the people/opinions/stories we want to hear. And I thought--maybe I was wrong. Or maybe I'm OK, because I do have a lot of weird interests that make it pretty hard to find people who are on the same page with everything. I have social network connections with people around roleplaying game

HOME ENTERTAINMENT UPDATE: THE EMBIGGENING

  Chromecast CD storage Antenna Blu-ray player Apple TV Receiver Record player VHS Tape player So, I decided to spend my tax refund on home entertainment this year, as TV keeps getting better, whereas movies... not so much. My computer is old, but it still works, and replacing a computer seems less urgent when you have mobile devices. It feels like a long time ago when RAM and processor power seemed so important in order to use the latest bloated software, but now with so many webapps and sites designed for mobile, as long as your Internet is fast enough, you're OK. Lifehacker says to spend money where you spend most of your time, and I now use my tablet more than my desktop. Also, with all the streams I have access to, there was one chink in my entertainment system -- my TV was not actually big enough to appreciate high definition. Well, it seemed like a good deal in 2007, at $200 more than my new one which is almost twice as big. The main thing stopping me

TOP TEN LIPSYNCH FOR YOUR LIFE SONGS FOR A DRAG KING EQUIVALENT OF RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE

 The Advocate has suggested that the greatest (i.e. only good) reality show ever, Rupaul's Drag Race , have a drag king contestant.  That's fine, but it would be much more entertaining to have a whole drag king competition. One of the best parts of Drag Race is seeing all the different types of queens compete: beauty queens, funny queens, conceptual queens, androgynous queens, scary queens, singing and dancing queens.  I want to see punk kings, gangsta rap kings, cock-rocking metal kings, panty-dropping R & B kings, country kings, baggy-pants burlesque comic kings, and of course, Elvis. I picked out some songs that make me think of different aspects of masculinity:  swaggering men, heartbroken men, lustful men, romantic men, philosophical men, and suicidally depressed men (interesting fact: I can think of dozens of songs by men about suicide, but only one female one: "Gloomy Sunday". What's up with that?) "That's Life" - Frank Sinatra
