Well at least we got plenty of people to munch on til it rains again.

It's not sane!

Always an excuse to raise prices and not give raises. Always.

I wonder what the age cut-off is for that reference

To the rest of the country, I say...welcome to Texas.
We just went through the worst drought EVAR last year, and technically are still not out of it.

I'd pour some tea for two, but sadly the well's run dry.

I totally should be in the age range that gets it, but I'm only vaguely aware of Blind Melon.
I didn't own a TV at the time. Or listen to corporate rock.

Yeah, that's right.
I was a hipster before it was hip.

Krieghund: Or listen to corporate rock.


I'm not sure I would call Blind Melon corporate rock.

One hit wonder that got lucky because their front man knew Axl Rose? Sure.

Ok, I know they were around for 6 or 7 years before Hoon died and they have a few fans out there but most people only know the one song.

Oh, and it's 100f here and we haven't had rain since June 17. There's a chance tonight of storms. I really hope we get something. The plants are hurtin'

Yeah it's vevo so there may be an ad.


I don't think I've heard that song in 15+ years. Now I have to go listen to The Lumberjack. Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!
 
2012-07-17 11:31:19 AM  
Did food costs skyrocket in 1956 too?
 
2012-07-17 11:31:44 AM  
Y'know I'd like to keep my cheeks dry todaaaaaaay
So don't rain at all ever and I'll have it maaaaaade

75% of everything in the food market contains corn. Corn as far north as Michigan is dead or soon will be. Enjoy your tripled grocery bills.

We need a real brush with hardship. Sucks, but we won't ever change when our poorest people are fat and drunk and high.

Better than "All the things she said running through my head".
 
2012-07-17 11:50:29 AM  
But global warming is still a conspiracy, right? Because I think it snowed once last winter or something...

Right??!?

what song?

/lives under a rock
 
2012-07-17 11:55:24 AM  
Hmmm.... severe drought, high unemployment, an economy on the brink of disaster.. it seems like I've seen this movie. The worst part for me is that my oldest son is 14, so he'll be 18 just in time to get drafted for WWIII.

Honestly, I loved blind melon. To this day the song "Mother" makes my room get dusty. Stupid heroin addiction.
 
2012-07-17 12:23:50 PM  
Fun fact: Shannon Hoon OD-ed on drugs he bought at "Numbers" here in Houston. In Houston, we've had rain for 2 solid weeks! Coincidence? Possibly.

Yep, awesome use of a chain saw as a musical instrument!

I'm enjoying the nice weather in Western PA. It's been so dang rainy and overcast over the last few years. I'm finally starting to dry out. Because of the mild winter, it still looks like a freakin' jungle around here anyway.

And so what if Monsanto's Wondrous Genetically Modified Corn tm is dead? Hey it's a free market and there's things like sugar beets and countries like Brazil trying to sell us ethanol. It's still not as bad as the Dust Bowl so stop freaking out every 5 minutes on the news-o-tainment shows.

Yes, please.


Sorry duder, she's married.

Shannon Hoon was an incredibly talented artist, too bad he couldn't stay off the heroin and thus avoid having that song being his legacy. Dummy.

The fact you think that comment makes me a libtard amuses me. Thanks for the chuckle!

True, but I should point out that the richest people are also fat, drunk, and high. Global famine would even the playing field, especially if it ended up being followed by a fatal epidemic disease. Massive depopulation would address much of the artifically created idiocy in this world, despite the unpleasantness of the specifics of such an event.

Indubitably: Planted.
