It is a Tuesday night tune posted at 4:45 am.

Are you smoking the crystal meth again?

I started the post several hours before, but it got wiped out. I suppose I should have changed the title.

The drugs, however, would probably have been a distinct improvement.

Promoted by Rolling Stone. The same people that said Led Zepplin was a flash in the pan and Robert Plant's voice was too feminine for rock & roll.

'Sides, this song really, really sucks.

There's my review! :-o

I guess Rock & Roll has proven that no man's voice is too feminine for it.

I wouldn't try a Johnny Cash song with Plant's voice, though.

Not even "A Boy Named Sue"? ;-)

Next you're going to tell me that Vince Gill's voice was too feminine as well. Them thar will be fightin' words! :-o

Posted by: JHD at July 29, 2008 03:58 PM

Vince Gill's voice is not too feminine. His mannerisms yes, but not his voice.

Nice sky.
And if'n I could do the least bit better, I'd be a star.

YouTube videos notwithstanding, you'll always be a princess to me...and others too, I have no doubt.

Posted by: camojack at July 30, 2008 01:33 AM

You may not feel like a princess, Cass, but I ....feel like number! Dammit I'm a man!

Woohoo Bob Seger. Enough of the emo sissie music, gimme that old time rock'n'roll.

To each his own.

I guess I'm just weird. I could never confine myself to just one kind of music. I enjoy parts of them all.

I'll probably still be that way when I'm 80 years old.

I'll probably still be that way when I'm 80 years old.

And you'll still have great legs, too...

Ah, so you've seen the capris and pink socks have you? :-o

Posted by: JHD at July 30, 2008 09:04 AM

Jeez, guys :p

I am going to run out of the money I pay you all to lie about me.

Posted by: Don't.!!!...Stop!!! at July 30, 2008 09:13 AM

Actually, Carrie has the great legs.

I leave that stuff up to the young chicks :p
Granny here is looking at photos of The Burrito.

Posted by: Don't.!!!...Stop!!! at July 30, 2008 09:15 AM

Which Carrie? he-he!

OK Granny, we'll stop before we make you blush!

Or the Unit hunts us down and destroys us! ;-)

Pay?

Nope. There are a still a couple of areas in which I zealously defend my amateur status...

Posted by: BillT at July 30, 2008 10:22 AM

And here I thought you were a butt man all this time Bill.

Wonders never cease!

Pink socks are erotic though so I can see your point! :-o

John of Armory has his birthday cake up.

Are you smoking the crystal meth again?

I wonder if it would have been even cooler if Cass had given him some crystal.

Not to derail, but... is this drug stuff really big in the USA? I've never touched it, never dreamt about it, nor have I ever seen it, so... kinda curious.

The 'it' I'm referring to is recreational drugs, so take your mind out of the gutters.

;P

Depends on where those tunnels the Mexican Cartel are building goes.

"is this drug stuff really big in the USA? I've never touched it, never dreamt about it, nor have I ever seen it, so... kinda curious."
A casual observer might come to that conclusion Gregory.

Based on funding figures and crime stats one has to imagine that the Drug Enforcement Agency and local law enforcement, not to mention the US Coast Guard, stay quite busy with drug (related) crime. And we are told that the drug trade flourishes in spite of all efforts to stop it.

Our prisons are populated, to a large percentage, by those who have been convicted of drug (related) crimes.

We also have wall to wall Pharmaceutical advertisements on our TVs promoting a better life through chemistry for everything from anxiety to toe nail fungus.

Considering the volume of drug (related) crime and the figures on prescription drug usage, I would have to say that it must meet some definition of really big.

FWIW, Gregory, that was a joke.

Pot (marijuana) use is fairly widespread among the younger set although I was rather astounded to find that my sons never seemed to be all that into it. I'm sure they tried it - I'd worry a bit about them if they didn't - but although many of their friends used it, I never caught them the way I caught them doing other things.

Even in the 70s when I was a teen, I was never into hard drugs.

Too many of my friends were and I saw the results.

Posted by: Cass at July 31, 2008 12:41 PM

"Too many of my friends were and I saw the results."
Aye Milady. Friends who took a wrong turn during the 60's and 70's and never fully recovered. That and the exposure I had to doctors prescribing drugs, lots of drugs ranking high on the Zombie scale, after my injuries may have turned me into an anti-drug zealot.

I suppose that I could be branded a crusader, but my snark-force-field protects me and gives me comfort. =8^}

Posted by: bt_what-me-worry_hun at July 31, 2008 12:57 PM

I was anti-drugs since the beginning. Never liked them.

I even control the dosage of coffee I ingest so that I don't build a tolerance to it.

The 'it' I'm referring to is recreational drugs

They were big in the 60s and 70s, especially for the military in the 70s. Big problems there. They got it fixed later when the hippies were out on the streets celebrating the fall of Saigon.

Meth is infiltrating American sub urbs due to how Mexican cartels are more ruthless than American cartels and have set up "extradition free" bases in Mexico in order to ship the stuff to the US, where the big money payout is.

These people have both the bribery money to evade extradition and also prevent US law enforcement from getting any real evidence on them. They often use illegal Mexican laborers, both because they are attracted to the money payout and because illegal Mexicans aren't going to the US police if they start having second thoughts.

It's sort of like how Pakistan is invading Afghanistan, when you think about it. Except Mexico ships in Meth and Pakistan ships in suicide bombers.
