Cantaloupe is a kind of melon.

why didn't Stephen King just get the Nazgul to fly those kids straight to the body.?

I liked the movie but why Tom Bombadil did the dance number for "Jack & Diane" ....It was a travesty!
John Cougar should be the Riddler in a movie thats already been filmed.

I'm so close to a total fark freebee...i can taste it...

"If this becomes a movie and John Mellencamp wins an Oscar then I will be a VERY rich dude."

/If someone offers you 10,000 to 1 odds on ANYTHING, you take it.

It makes sense; King loves Classic Rock and you don't get more Classic Rock than Johnny Cougar.

Little pink haunted houses for you and me.

Why not?
I have the time
I got the talent
I got the typewriter
I got the plot!

i - t, it
Sometimes we writers take hours
Finding exactly the right word
It, it, it, it
It was a dark and stormy morning
Packed, flat, trite
It was a dark and stormy evening
It was a dark and stormy night!
Night, right!

When suddenly a van was heard
A van was drove
When suddenly a van drove over
Drove by?
Inspired

Bob Dylan would like a word.

I'd respect it more if it had a decent title. It sounds like something the Simpsons would reject for not being funny enough.

More like classic Pop.

I'll point out that King co-wrote that ghost story thing with Michael Jackson (new window)...this isn't exactly a new thing for him.

Yes, this is horrible, this idea.

Bob Dylan would like a whole vocabulary of words.

I, man, am regal a German am I
Never odd or even
If I had a hi-fi
Madam, I'm Adam
Too hot to hoot
No lemons, no melon
Too bad I hid a boot
Lisa Bonet ate no basil
Warsaw was raw
Was it a car or a cat I saw?

Rise to vote, sir
Do geese see God?
"Do nine men interpret?" "Nine men," I nod
Rats live on no evil star
Won't lovers revolt now?
Race fast, safe car
Pa's a sap
Ma is as selfless as I am
May a moody baby doom a yam?

Ah Satan sees Natasha
No devil lived on
Lonely Tylenol
Not a banana baton
No "x" in "Nixon"
O, stone, be not so
O Geronimo, no minor ego
"Naomi", I moan
"A Toyota's a Toyota"
A dog, a panic in a pagoda

Oh, no! Don Ho!
Nurse, I spy gypsies -- run!
Senile felines
Now I see bees I won
UFO tofu
We panic in a pew
Oozy rat in a sanitary zoo
God! A red nugget! A fat egg under a dog!
Go hang a salami, I'm a lasagna hog

/I mean, I like Dylan, but that's pretty damn accurate.

Fun with palindromes.

I meant in the sense that he mumbles. He's a fine writer.

I know. Just a bit of fun. How's Tom Petty suit you, then?

Let's hope it's more Full Dark, No Stars and less 11/22/63. Good lord, 11/22/63 is the first Stephen King book, and I've read them all, that I almost gave up on. What a steaming pile of shiat. If anyone else had written it, I would've stopped about midway through. Having finished it, I wish I did give up on it.

Apples/oranges. Petty's mumble-y, too, but has a bit more punch in his vocals. He's more "rock" and i'd put Bob as more "folk-rock," but Petty's not a great lyricist and Dylan is.

Seen 'em all (Petty, Mellencamp, Dylan ... plus Leonard Cohen, who is more in Bob's lyrical wheelhouse) in concert at one time or another. Mellencamp's my fave live. Best mix of storytelling, lyrics, and balls-out musicianship.

King is hoping this hurts so good, that even people in small towns eschew their lonely ol' nights and come to performances

That's Bag of Bones I could not read it for the life of me. I find his books sometimes start out a bit weak but by 200 pages in you are hooked. This one I got that far and gave up.

See, I cannot STAND Tommyknockers. 200 pages of good story, sandwiched between 500 pages of turd.
