Your favorite singer sucks!

Fire and Rain is worth more than your life, subby.

FTA: The driver said he'd return her iPod for the fare.

So why even give her a new iPod? Make that deadbeat pay her bill.

Worth more than subby's life:

Just yesterday morning they let me know you were gone
Susanne the plans they made put an end to you
I walked out this morning and I wrote down this song
I just can't remember who to send it to

I've seen fire and I've seen rain
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought that I'd see you again

Won't you look down upon me, Jesus
You've got to help me make a stand
You've just got to see me through another day
My body's aching and my time is at hand
And I won't make it any other way

Oh, I've seen fire and I've seen rain
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought that I'd see you again

Been walking my mind to an easy time my back turned towards the sun
Lord knows when the cold wind blows it'll turn your head around
Well, there's hours of time on the telephone line to talk about things
to come
Sweet dreams and flying machines in pieces on the ground

Oh, I've seen fire and I've seen rain
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought that I'd see you, baby, one more time again, now

Thought I'd see you one more time again
There's just a few things coming my way this time around, now
Thought I'd see you, thought I'd see you fire and rain, now

I like James Taylor's music.

/Hey baby,I'm your handy man
 
2009-01-26 11:24:24 AM  
She carries his tunes so she has songs for herself far away, so far awaaaaaay...

Over in three.

Wow.

Former president James Taylor...

Every day... I want to beat that douchebag's face into a pulp with a roller coaster...
 
2009-01-26 11:25:32 AM  
In my mind I'm thrusting in your heiney
Can't you feel the log jam
Don't you just love the long slam
Aren't you a nice old friend of mine to take it from behind
so I can pretend you are a girl. . .in my mind.
 
2009-01-26 11:25:46 AM  
Show some respect,... at one time, the man put his manroot in Carly Simon's mouth. If that isn't fearless and worthy of respect, I don't know what is...
 
2009-01-26 11:26:20 AM  
Ever since I had to listen to James Taylor songs on a road trip from Modesto to Lake Tahoe, I've never been a fan.
 
2009-01-26 11:26:25 AM  
I like James Taylor's music.

/Hey baby,I'm your handy man


I like his other song, How Sweet It Is (To be Loved By You).

Great songwriter. Ya.

Every day... I want to beat that douchebag's face into a pulp with a roller coaster... Steamroller...

I wonder if he and Art Garfunkel ever had any more ant problems.
 
2009-01-26 11:27:43 AM  
She's got a friend.
 
2009-01-26 11:27:49 AM  
All you need to know is that The Simpsons gave it the nod. Run along now.
 
2009-01-26 11:29:12 AM  
So who does subby like, Guns n Roses?
 
2009-01-26 11:30:44 AM  
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the agency responsible for police at the airport, said it is investigating.

What? What is left to investigate? What will this investigation consist of? Will someone go deep undercover?
 
2009-01-26 11:30:46 AM  
If James Taylor Were on Fire by Paul and Storm.
 
2009-01-26 11:31:13 AM  

esteban9: So who does subby like, Guns n Roses?


I came here to say, "At least it's not full of Guns n Roses"
 
2009-01-26 11:32:03 AM  
Subby can eat a big bowl of dicks.

Used to say "I have every James Taylor every made, and the woman that is impresed by that, I'll marry." Till I met her. Eeep

My wife (not the same woman mind you) likes JT, but thinks he did some brain dammage with the drugs (i.e. Hangnail - the last track on Hourglass)
 
2009-01-26 11:32:14 AM  
As soon as she links her JT-infected new iPod to her install of iTunes, it will erase it for her and return it to what she had on her old one.
 
2009-01-26 11:32:31 AM  
I actually had to look up James Taylor, and even then I still am left with the question, who the fark is james taylor?

Um...Sweet dreams, and flying machines,
Flying safely through the air
 
2009-01-26 11:33:45 AM  
I really like his other song, "Love Shack".
 
2009-01-26 11:34:29 AM  
I, for one, welcome our new folk rock overlords?
 
2009-01-26 11:35:20 AM  
If only he'd used more heroin. A lot more.
 
2009-01-26 11:38:17 AM  
So if this chick is so broke she can't pay for a cab ride, what the hell is she doing with overpriced personal electronics?
 
2009-01-26 11:38:28 AM  
Aw ipod lady - You've got a friend

/mostly into hip hop
/still have a few James Taylor songs in the lite section on my ipod
 
2009-01-26 11:38:30 AM  
Aww, this is terrible. The hard times are hitting everyone. She should definately be treated like a victim for taking a service and not having the money to pay for it. That's how it normally works out, right?

Sybarite: boobsrgood:

That's why The Simpsons will last forever. There's always an appropriate reference.
 
2009-01-26 11:39:12 AM  
James Taylor music always makes me think of catalogs for fishing gear.
 
2009-01-26 11:40:06 AM  

tweekster: I actually had to look up James Taylor, and even then I still am left with the question, who the fark is james taylor?


Wasn't he the 12th president of the United States?
 
2009-01-26 11:40:18 AM  

ObiJuan: So if this chick is so broke she can't pay for a cab ride, what the hell is she doing with overpriced personal electronics?


I was prepared to say "she may have forgotten her cash", but after seeing that her credit card was declined? Sell that shiat and pay your bills, woman!

(the iPod may have been a gift)
 
2009-01-26 11:40:53 AM  

ElwoodCuse: I wonder if he and Art Garfunkel ever had any more ant problems.


Other Simpsons reference duly noted

I thought the credit card was declined, in that the cabi declined that form of payment (he said his machine is broken, which is his problem, not hers)
 
2009-01-26 11:43:36 AM  
Was she heard to reply, "That's a sweet baby, James!"
 
2009-01-26 11:45:21 AM  
who doesn't like james taylor?
 
2009-01-26 11:45:27 AM  
It's a nice sentiment by Taylor to someone who seems less than deserving, but all his songs are going to be erased the first time she synchs the ipod with her computer. oh well, it's the thought that counts.

Are John Malkovich and James Taylor the same person?

/links as hot as fire, and as wet as rain.
 
2009-01-26 11:46:41 AM  
Shouldn't it be Harry Chapin be replacing her iPod?
 
2009-01-26 11:48:27 AM  
She'll probably sell it on Ebay
 
2009-01-26 11:54:24 AM  
I've long stated that he makes music to commit suicide to.
 
2009-01-26 11:56:11 AM  
James Taylor wrote his first album in a mental hospital, survived all the cool and most of the horrific drugs, married Carly Simon when she was very hot, and has a great voice. So he has that going for him. Also, when he was young he could probably melt a co-ed's knickers with just a smile.

/Buy "Sweet Baby James," which is actually a fantastic album.
 
2009-01-26 11:57:35 AM  
I'm a steamroller, baby, so I'm getting a kick out of these replies.
 
2009-01-26 11:59:03 AM  
Article says Taylor might replace her iPod with an iPhone. While a grand gesture, that would kinda suck unless he plans on covering her service as well, since iPhones don't work as mp3 players until you activate them with AT&T and sign up for phone service.
 
2009-01-26 11:59:05 AM  

laid back w/bud light: I've long stated that he makes music to commit suicide to.


As a youngster, my brother once told me that you can tell someone went through a suicidal phase if they know anything more than the common hits of:

Simon & Garfunkel
James Taylor or
Weird Al
