Spanish Flea lyrics

I love this song!!!

Spanish Flea

There was a little spanish flea
A record star he thought he'd be
He heard of singers like Beetles
and The Chipmunks he'd seen on TV
Why not a little spanish flea?

And so he hid
Inside a doggie from madrid
He arrived in the city
Still singin his sweet harmony
As proud as any flea could be

He walked around
As if he owned the town
Humming his pint sized melody
With his guitar he knew he'd be a star
And in his own home town, how proud he'd be

Then all at once he met a man
Who said, "I'll help you if i can"
He listened close to his song
And then he sang right along for you see
He loved that little spanish flea

Brutal story

Don't try this at home

Man. I downloaded the video of the American who got beheaded off of some site. I was kind of curious. But as they say, curiousity killed the cat.

Big mistake. Very gruesome and creepy too. They're all chanting Allah Akbar as they're cutting his head off.

My wife says I polluted my chi by watching this...

Don't recommend it.

Not to say it's okay, but from what I read, he was offered a ride out of there before this all happened, and the US had recommended that people not hang out there. He should of gone to someplace that was not as volatile.

Pretty good rip on B list stars


Last night Sony held a celebrity studded party for Playstation 2 at the Mayan Theater. Couldn't swing a dead cat without hitting a celeb. Lara Flynn Boyle looking positively emaciated didn't have vip access but walked right in when the sleazy velvet rope man saw her. Shannon Elizabeth looking sad that no one likes her now that she wants to keep her top on. Leonardo Di Caprio sans Gizelle, drunk as hell and all over several girls. Iggy Pop and the Yeah Yeah Yeah's performed and phoned it in for their personal appearance fees. Karen O (of the Yeah Yeah Yeah's slipped out of her limo in the"

Trip to Dallas

I haven't posted in awhile, so I thought I'd start back up with some photos of my weekend trip to Dallas. We went to visit Kelly's friend Tina and her husband David. Good people.

One of the things we did while in Dallas was visit the Sixth Floor Musuem, which is actually the book depository building from where Lee Harvey Oswald shot JFK. Way cool.

They had it sealed off, but the actual corner on the 6th floor where LHO perched his rifle is all there, with book boxes and all, that he used to conceal himself. They also had a section sealed off where they found the rifle after he dumped it.

We had an audio cassette tour, and read the displays, viewed the photos, saw the Zapruder film, and analyzed forensic evidence. We determined that LHO was a patsy and was in cahoots with a Cuban underground who didn't like JFK's policies...

The best part was going outside and taking pics at the assassination site. Now, I'm not morbid, but it's just cool to be in the exact spot where such a seminal event occurred.

View of the Depository from the street. The 6th floor, (second to top in this photo), right corner, is the sniper perch

The road JFK's limo was driving down as the attack began

The "Grassy Knoll" where people heard more shots, and saw a puff of smoke

The bush where experts have determined a human form was hiding behind (that's actually my wife, Kelly, not a mafia hitman/cuban exile)

The view of the road from behind the bush on the "Grassy Knoll"

The actual spot where JFK's limo was when he was hit (don't know if it was the first or 3rd bullet)

View of the depository from the spot. It's easy to see that there's a clear shot from the window, which isn't really evident when you're standing on the sidewalk between the road and the building. Several trees seem to be in the line of site.
