sexy dragon magic

so very autobiographic

David Lee Roth lyrical genius on their new song 'tattoo'. This is why Legendary bands should just stay legendary and not release new material. Not good, not good at all.

I have a left-field contribution: "Johnsburg, Illinois" by Tom Waits. At about a minute and a half, t's one of the shortest songs around, but I've always loved it. I sing it to my daughter often.


Here are the lyrics (with the tattoo reference in bold):

She's my only true love, she's all that I think of

Look here in my wallet, that's her

She grew up on a farm there, there's a place on my arm where

I've written her name next to mine

See I just can't live without her, and I'm her only boy

She grew up outside McHenry in Johnsburg, Illinois

Makes me wonder who did Tom's tattoos:

I'm suprised no one's posted this gem yet

any way we can vote this as the LST theme song?.. have it come on automatically everytime you open a new LST page... and hide the stop/pause/mute button.

gem indeed.

    • What made you do the first one. How did it feel?
    • Whenever I would post the previous nipple pictures all my friends would bring up the nipple lol. It was never intended to do the nipple, but since I already did the other one I felt this one needed to be done to flow better 
    • A lot of state of the union discussion around here lately... For what it's worth- I like getting to know folks on the Internet around a shared interest and then discussing anything and everything with them. This, as you can imagine, lends itself to varied results depending on community norms and moderator energy. I have wondered if a daily, or probably weekly, general thread would help. It would give new posters a place to follow current conversation and jump in to ask a simple question without doing masters level research. It would also give me a place to complain about how disappointing the Timberwolves were in the season opener or tell you if my wife gets Nick Cave tickets tomorrow (fingers crossed).  In other, more relevant news, the tattoo shop both emailed and called to conform my appointment for Sunday so they must be as excited to put a tattoo on me and I am to be tattooed.
