dead puppies, poisoned pigeons and me.

dead puppies aren't much fun.
they don't come when you call,
they don't chase squirrels at all ...

if it were spring i'd be singing:
All the world seems in tune
On a spring afternoon,
When we're poisoning pigeons in the park.
Every Sunday you'll see
My sweetheart and me,
As we poison the pigeons in the park.

but for now i guess it's just:
Take your cigarette from its holder,
And burn your initials in my shoulder.
Fracture my spine,
And swear that you're mine,
As we dance to the Masochism Tango.


as you see, i've got it bad for tom lehrer (the first one isn't him but it's on dr. demento's 20th anniversary, which is the best one except for when they had TMBG on the 25h anniversary edition)
one of these days i'll actually get some of the tom lehrer albums, which are so great. he's so great. you hear that tom? you're fabulous, dahling.

TMBG make me have spontaneous orgasms. Also, I must agree on the dead puppy thing unless you're a five year old and you want people to give you free toys, then a dead puppy is a good way to gather sympathy gifts.

i drove more than 600 miles (from tampa to asheville, nc) to see TMBG last month because they weren't coming here on tour this time. it was great fun (except for the actual drive during hurricane jeanne) but i hope they come here next time. i've seen them 7 or 8 times now.
