Hey Dave- by the time I reached legal drinking age or even fake i.d. drinking age, Jonathan Swift's was gone. But I did have a telemarketing job plugging horrible comedy shows at catch a rising star for about 10 minutes in the early '90s!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm ultradamno:

I was just reading an interview with Jonathan Kane of Swans and he said he felt they were a blues band and approached their music in the early days from his love of Wolf in particular www.tableoftheelements.org...

I got the “Everybody Oversharing their Mediocre Quarantine Bread” blues.
Avatar 7:22pm Hackensack Slim:

@P-90 "Launder the Sick" has a nice ring to it. Kinda literary and timely, IMO. Also. Yo Matt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24pm Matt Fiveash:

launder the sick, heal the underpants, etc etc

Well, the weather is warm enough now to open the windows and let in the sounds of neighborhood children screaming with the hateful ferocity of hatchet murderers. The virus can't take away all of life's simple joys.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35pm Handy Haversack:

When life gives you hatchets, make hatchetade, ultradamno.
Avatar 7:37pm Hackensack Slim:

It seems like kids scream more lately than when I was a lad. Or is that just an old dude observation?
Avatar 7:42pm Hackensack Slim:

Hopefully they'll grow into Screamin' Jay Hawkins and Screamin' Joe Neal types.
Avatar 7:43pm Little Danny:

Heya Matt, hey all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm ultradamno:

...or even Screaming Blue Messiahs, not as enduring, but they'll like the going down to the woods part.
