Rock 'n Roll Fridays - Aerosmith


1. Dream On “Every time that I look in the mirror, All these
lines in my face getting clearer. The past is gone. It went by like dusk to dawn. Isn’t that the way. Everybody’s got their dues in life to pay” Do you pay dues or something such as a membership in a union, church, civic group, gang, etc?
I write a lot of checks to snowmobile clubs, does that count? I personally even belong to one.
2. Angel “Without your love, I’m nothing but a beggar. Without your love,
a dog without a bone…” What is your favorite dog breed?
You would think I"d say a golden because of my Saki, but
honestly... I've always had a weakness for German Shepards. Ever since I was little and befriended my brother's friend's shepard, Knuckles. Meanest dog in town, kids wouldn't go near him, the guy's mom wouldn't go near him, but me? I crawled in his doghouse with him. You make a friend with a shepard, you make a friend for life.

3. Sweet Emotion “You stand in the front just a shakin your ass. I’ll take you backstage you can drink from my glass…” Have you ever been backstage at a concert to meet the band? If not, what band would you like to meet backstage?
Can't say that I have. What band, huh? How about Trace Adkins.. I'd meet him in back of anywhere.
4. Walk This Way “So I took a big chance at the high school dance with a missy who was ready to play…” What was the first song you ever danced to at a school dance?
Really? You want me to remember that? My first dance was in 7th grade and I don't even remember if I had a date or not.
5. Crazy “You’re packin up your stuff and talkin like it’s tough. And tryin to tell me that it’s time to go, yeah. But I know you ain’t wearin nothing underneath that overcoat. And it’s all a show, yeah.” Ever worn your PJs in public?
The new thing is PJ pants, don't you know that?
6. Cryin “I was cryin when I met you. Now I’m tryin to forget you. Your love is sweet misery.” What is the worst film you went to see in the past 5 years?
I don't go see bad films.
7. Draw The Line “Checkmate honey beat you at your own damn game. No dice honey I’m livin on the astral plane. Feet’s on the ground and your head’s goin down the drain. Oh heads I win tails you lose….” What is your favorite board game?
Does cribbage count?
8. Big Ten Inch Record “My girl don’t go for smoking, and liquor just makes her flinch. Seems she’ll go for nuthin, ‘cept for my big ten inch… Record of a band that plays the blues…” What was your favorite record (or CD) when you were 18 years old?
18 huh? Which Poison album was out in 1991?
9. Janie’s Got A Gun “It’s Janies last IOU She had to take him down easy and put a bullet in his brain…” What was the last IOU written for that you either gave or received?
10. Jaded “My my baby blue. Yeah I’ve been thinkin bout you. My my baby blue, yeah you’re so jaded. And I’m the one that jaded you” Are you jaded on a subject or issue?
I get my panties in a bunch over lots of things.
11. I Don’t Want to Miss A Thing “I don’t wanna close my eyes. I don’t wanna fall asleep cause I’d miss you baby And I don’t wanna miss a thing….” What was the last event that you missed that you regret?
My brother's comedy show
12. Rag Doll “Yes I’m movin, I’m really movin. Sloe Gin fizzy, do it til you’re dizzy. Give it all you got until your put out of your misery” What is the most miserable thing that happened to you recently?
Lately? Nothing really. Is that bad? I like my life, I have a very good life.
13. Love In An Elevator “Love in an elevator, lovin it up when I’m goin down. Love in an elevator. Livin it up when I hit the ground…” What is the most unusual place that you have made love?
In the front bucket seat of a Grand Am - one of the earlier Grand Ams, the small little boxy ones? Yeah, that. Why the front seat? I don't know, but it didn't work so well. Maybe it would have worked better had we pulled the seat back all the way... I know it's not unusual in an unusual sense, but it was the first place that popped into my mind because it was ... memorable?

Quack Quack

Something I found that was posted over at Insanity Cafe....
If you want to deliver the Gettysburg Address at the Lincoln Memorial, make sure you get a permit first. This is a lesson Phillip Howell, 25, learned the hard way this past Presidents' Day when he went to the memorial all prepared and was told by the police that he would have to take his speech elsewhere.

Howell was confused as to why it is actually illegal to read the words carved into the memorial’s wall in a loud voice, he told the Daily Caller, but he obeyed. Instead, the 6-foot-4 Howell, who looks a lot like Abe Lincoln himself, moved to the bottom of the steps and delivered the rest of the speech. Simple, right?

Howell may have gotten around the law (sort of, anyway), but obscure and bizarre laws are not unique to Washington, DC. Here are 10 strange laws that still stand around the country:

In Alabama, it's illegal for a driver to be blindfolded while operating a vehicle: So, um, duh? Does anyone think this SHOULD be legal? Did we really need a law telling us this?
In Massachusetts, candy may not contain more than 1% of alcohol. While the law makes sense to me having just eaten some pretty potent chocolate liquor balls in Belgium, it sounds a little strange.
In New Jersey, it's illegal to pump your own gas.
In New Mexico, "idiots" cannot vote. Don't believe me? Read it: "Every citizen of the United States, who is over the age of twenty-one years, and has resided in New Mexico twelve months, in the county ninety days, and in the precinct in which he offers to vote thirty days, next preceding the election, except idiots, insane persons, and persons convicted of a felonious or infamous crime unless restored to political rights, shall be qualified to vote at all elections for public officers."
In Ohio, it's illegal to mistreat anything of great importance.
In Arizona, hunting camels is prohibited. Because there are so many camels?
In South Carolina, you must be 18 to play pinball. Obviously this one is because of the many wild and crazy pinball machines in other states, right?
In Maryland, you may not have oral or anal sex. Good thing Clinton was technically in DC, no?
In Florida, it's illegal to sell your children, which begs the question: Is it legal somewhere else?
In Pennsylvania, until 2002, one was not allowed to swear in front of women and children.

So much for land of the free. Although my favorite law isn't listed.... It is illegal to walk across the Minnesota-Wisconsin border with a duck on your head.

Do farts really stink?

Do farts really stink or are we just conditioned to believe that they do?

I was just thinking about this because of a show I watched the other day. We are genetically made to think certain parts of the opposite sex are attractive for procreation purposes. Scents of people are the same way. They went on to say how the view of what is attractive has changed over the years, but in some parts of the world it hasn't. Then it got me thinking of other things that we are conditioned to think... like how years ago girls got married & started a family in their teenage years, etc. Don't ask me how it got me thinking about farts (probably because the cat farted, who knows)... but who decided that farts stink? And that flowers smell good? If you think about it, many animals go based off the smell of that particular area but yet we find it repulsive.
