Mutterings for this weekend ... Semper Fi!

All I have to say is -- nothing. Not a thing. Nope. The new Sheryl Crow album -- eh. Plus there's one song on there where she lies and it's just really sad how misguided and brainwashed she is.

But anyway...

from this meme is called: Unconscious MutteringsUnconscious Mutterings

a free association game -- I say ... and you think ... ?

1. Passport :: International travel

2. Small world :: it's a ... after all ... Disney song, sorry, no mp3, if you don't know it, I guess you're out of luck.

3. Radio :: Free Europe ... old R.E.M. song, from when they used to be a great band... there's a sample to hear at the link.

4. Marine :: A member of one of the World's Greatest organizations to defend freedom.

5. Wall :: Pink Floyd's The Wall, movie and album... classics.

6. Wanna be :: poser

7. Pigtails ::

Cindy Brady
8. Hyphen :: -

9. 9.99 :: THE MOST IDIOTIC WAY TO PRICE SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!!!!! Holy cow, this is one of the most perplexing things related to commerce in America. Does anyone really think, "Whew, I'm really glad that's not $10.00 otherwise it would cost too much"?!?!?!?!?!?!

The worst -- when a car costs like $19,995 and the TV commercials says "Less than $20,000." Give me a freakin' break. Or the High-Def plasma screen that costs $2999.99. GIVE ME A BREAK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'll believe that whoever invented this thought he could psychologically sway some people... and as much faith that I don't have in American smarts, in general, is anyone really so dumb to think -- "I'm just so glad it's under $3,000.00 otherwise I just wouldn't buy it" ?!?!?!?!?!!

Okay, now that I've raised my blood pressure a little...

10. Unrated :: version of a movie on DVD, slightly different from the one shown in theaters.

Anyone who's ever been to Disney's Small World ride knows the truth. They implant that song in your head. :)
