I won’t put up with some bald headed dumb-ass bellowing at me down at the local rock club down the street. Why should I put up with some dumb sumbitch with a green strip on his fool face on my teevee?

Just because Letterman puts up with this foolishness don’t mean I have to.

I don’t even know or like what song he’s playing.

  • Um . . . huh?

  • Eric Olsen

    Jim, I have to admit I have missed your more oblique posting. Let the stream of consciousness flow.

  • Taloran

    I’m thinking I missed something important in this post. Letterman puts up with what? What song is who playing? Who is the bald-headed dumb-ass?

    Please forgive my confusion.

  • hmm, cryptic … moving my eyes while I’m dreaming.

    Despite the hype, we want to suck your big white pipe.

    Perhaps deciding “Is This Anything” would help.

  • …the dog barks…do he bite?

  • Eric Olsen

    My guess is we’re talking about Michael Stipe – is he anything? His mother thinks so.

    Poodle bites – poodle chews it.

  • REM performed on last night’s “Late Show.” Inexplicably, Stipey had a big greenish-blue stripe painted on his forehead. I love REM, but this was plain weird. At the same time, it’s heartening in a way to know that fortyish rockers can be as strange as the whippersnappers.

  • Eric Olsen

    When in doubt, ask Nat, I always say.

  • Eric Olsen

    I just heard a rumor that Michael is thinking of changing his last name from “Stipe” to “Stripe” and this was a trial balloon.

    He also could be supporting the Green Linnet Five

  • what annoys me is the performance was another addition to coasting on their reputation.

    Sure he can do a wierd tribute to Darryl Hannah, but can he come up with a song you remember?

    No. Stipe and REM have reached that awful plateau where they are more famous for who they are rather than what they do.

  • Yup.

    Eric’s Green Linnet 5 idea is almost believable. 🙂

    Poodle bites: Zappa’s prescient thought about Tony Blair, perhaps?

  • i like REM, ‘cuz they piss off canadians.


  • It doesn’t take REM to piss Canadians off. That’s the way we are, eh? We just don’t naturally express it.

    Just think if your life was directed by David Cronenberg.

    A man with a green stripe on his face would be the least of your worries.
