A Man Who Has Nothing In Particular To Recommend Him Discusses All Sorts of Subjects at Random as Though He Knew Everything

It’s Always a Good Day When You’re Above the Lawn

That’s Cyrille Aimee, who’s some sorta French chick, so, she’s like, automatically hot. It’s like a law or a rule or something. Can’t control her hair. Smokes cigarettes that Germans in a snowbank on the Eastern Front would turn down, I imagine. I bet she eats snails. Not in a restaurant, either. Just finds them in people’s fish tanks and eats them. She speaks English because she went to college at SUNY Purchase, which I hear now has some faculties and gymnosiums and a reflectory to eat in, where you think about what you could have done with the tuition money. It doesn’t seem to have done her any harm.

The song is written by Peggy Lee, of all people, and her then-husband, Dave Barbour, who was a alcoholic jazz banjoist, of all things. You’d drink pretty heavily, too, if you were in that close proximity to someone playing the jazz banjo.

  1. Well now Sipp, don't be so quick to judge. My uncle Letsgo Lozko told me accordion players always pull the chicks. And I never saw a tuba player on food stamps either. Theramin, now that's a different matter. You gotta have hands for that one.

  2. Well, it's better than Rap…

    grows on you actually.

    By the way, since your old business web sites went down I've removed the links I had on my site. Pity, I liked the look of that Rococo style graphic on my sidebar. Good Luck with what comes next, staying in Maine?

  3. Well, I've been below the lawn, though the "lawn" was gravel or asphalt and grass (never knew which; hard to tell from down below), plenty of times, but always managed to get back up. Do love the sight of sky.

  4. Say, Mr. Sippi, my comments have a garbage can next to them, and JTR's doesn't. My older ones do, too. Are you dissin' me, man? Naw, I know better; you wouldn't do that. I figger that's so's I can delete them if I wanna rephrase them or somethin', and I guess maybe we commenters only see the cans on our own comments, but ya know I gots me a kinda suspicious mind, having had lots to be suspicious about, and I suspect you have reason to be suspicious your own self. Anyway, I'm keepin' an eye out, here.

  5. Hi Walt- Thanks for reading and commenting.

    If you wait a while in the first song, the guitarist is excellent.
