Hookers or Cake

Where the self-obsessed get serious about silly
I'm too wacky to be hip.

    • ------------------------------------- How this blog got its name

      ------------------------------------ There was a large painting of Evel Knievel shaking hands with Richard Nixon. It hung in the Mayors office. Late one evening after everyone went home. I took it down to the lab. I zoomed in on Evel’s left eye a 100x and enhanced it. It was an address. I went to the address. It was a modest, 1970’s style, split level ranch home in the suburbs.

      ----------------------------------- Inside I found a dead parrot lying on a waterbed. I revived the parrot with some saltines and adrenaline. We became good friends. The parrots name was Randy. One night a few years later while Randy and me played Gin Rummy, he sang me a song about a fire. The title of this blog was never mentioned but I sensed it, and Randy confirmed it by giving me ‘THE LOOK’.

            They blew apart your heart
            like a giant mechanical shark
            at the end of a 3-D movie

            Of course you played it cool
            you’re very much above
            all these silly emotions

            You’re lost
            and too arrogant to ask for directions
            not open for suggestions

            You’re fucked
            but you can’t afford to look bad
