76 Days To Halloween

I was exploring a cemetery and came across this worn and impressive grave monument- it wasn’t small, I’ll give you that:

And then I checked out the inscription and saw that the date of death  listed as November 5th.

That’s my birthday and when I visit cemeteries I look for my birthday on the headstones

It’s macabre to do that,  but that is ok because there are 76 Days to Halloween and little things like this add a little chill to the air, don’t you think?

One of Those Songs

This is one of those songs that I like for no one good reason.  The thing is, I like the live versions better, it’s a gritty song and I think it needs that edge that live performances have over studio versions.

Here is one of those songs by two musicians that I LOVE for no one good reason.  Version one by Nick Gilder and the other by Cherie Currie

Check it out:

Foxy from the Roxy,
Might turn some heads tonight.
Flashlight dream.
Peaches and cream delight.
Roxy Roller.

Five-bob job.
She gets bubblegum on her knees,
Down between the seats.
Sometime she’ll pass you the keys.
Roxy Roller,
Oh, Roxy Roller.

Roxy Roller, Roxy.
Her daddy, the commissioner.
Took far more than his share,
So Roxy joined the syndicate,
Knowing it wasn’t fair.
Roxy Roller,
Oh, Roxy Roller.

Roxy Roller, Roxy.
Oh, Roxy Roller.
Oh, Roxy.

Roxy Roller Lyrics as written by James Mcculloch Nick Gilder

Over There

I’m still thinking about water and rain.

I just can’t shake that heatwave off yet.

So here’s a song about two people who’s care breaks down in the middle of RAIN storm…how awesome is THAT?

In the velvet darkness of the blackest night
Burning bright, there’s a guiding star
No matter what or who you are.

There’s a light over at the Frankenstein Place
There’s a light burning in the fireplace
There’s a light, light in the darkness of everybody’s life.

I can see the flag fly, I can see the rain
Just the same, there has got to be
Something better here for you and me.

There’s a light over at the Frankenstein Place
There’s a light burning in the fireplace
There’s a light, light in the darkness of everybody’s life.

The darkness must go down the river of nights dreaming
Flow morphia slow, let the sun and light come streaming
Into my life, into my life.

There’s a light over at the Frankenstein Place
There’s a light burning in the fireplace
There’s a light, light in the darkness of everybody’s life.
