Goddamn That Hubbell Anyway ....

I don't know when it first happened, but somewhere along the way, during Broken Promise, Hubbell started to name every song.

Hence, we came away the last few years with song titles like

Michael,

Ebbis,

Shotzie,
and

Inspired.

Well, I thought that was bad enough.

But then I find an Intentions demo cassette from 1996-1997. I start to transfer the tunes to CD, just for the hell of it.

What do I find [and maybe I should blame Phil]?

Slated right there, for the world to hear, are songs entitled

Schmoe,

Dismissed,

and

Prizzi.

Thank God for Tom -- at least he had a longer title for one 'a his.

Of course, it was called Fresh Cheese Death.

Jesus Christ, what futility . . .

Arent you the one who writes the lyrics? He who writes the lyrics, names the song.

Take a chapter out of Bush The Younger's playbook: change all the song names unilaterally. Apologize to no one.

But might I recommend if you're going to do that, put twice as many troops on the ground, dammit, and get the infrastructure put back together as quickly as possible. Take out Hubble with a cruise missle. Hit the insurgency with the Hammer of God before it ever gets started!

Naaaah; lyrics, height, weight, jeannie c. riley -- none of those makes a difference.

song title is determined by the biggest jackass.

and, amazingly, hubbell won that contest . . .

besides, how do you say "this song can't be called Ebbis"? You start laughing or crying by the time you get to the word "can't."

ya gotta wonder -- saddam was a brutal dictator.

but he was a brutal dictator with 18 1/2 hours of electricity every day, v. 3 1/2 hours every day now...

i guess everybody could see how great their newfound freedom is by watching CNN international, if we could just provide


battery-operated TVs...


btw, I haven't openly adopted your convention of small "i"s; I just have a worse time capitalizing when typing than I used to. I'm too gentle on the ol' caps key . . .

but I can't still sling the ellipsis, b'god . . .

Speaking of titles, did you know "Lost in Space" was known as "Perdidos en el Espacio" in Mexico? There's a whole website devoted to the topic.

I like saying "Perdidos en el Espacio."

I also like saying "!Peligro! !Peligro, Senor Robinson!" ...

Yeah, but cabeza dunderosa ("dunderhead") just doesn't have the same jeannie c. riley . . .
