One of these things
2005-07-28 16:56:49 ET

I could have been a sailor, could have been a cook
A real live lover, could have been a book.
I could have been a signpost, could have been a clock
As simple as a kettle, steady as a rock.
I could be
Here and now
I would be, I should be
But how?
I could have been
One of these things first
I could have been
One of these things first.

I could have been your pillar, could have been your door
I could have stayed beside you, could have stayed for more.
Could have been your statue, could have been your friend,
A whole long lifetime could have been the end.
I could be yours so true
I would be, I should be through and through
I could have been
One of these things first
I could have been
One of these things first.

I could have been a whistle, could have been a flute
A real live giver, could have been a boot.
I could have been a signpost, could have been a clock
As simple as a kettle, steady as a rock.
I could be even here
I would be, I should be so near
I could have been
One of these things first
I could have been
One of these things first.

7/23/05 - They MIGHT BE Giants @ Penn's Pier, Philadelphia, PA
2005-07-28 07:21:23 ET

Yeah, so I saw a free show on Saturday. Probably the most I'll pay to see They MIGHT BE Giants anymore.
THEY've really plateaued in my mind. And that's not a bad thing.

THEY've really found the secret to staying on top - don't change at all. Hell, THEY don't even look like THEY've aged since I last saw Them up close (but THEY always looked pretty old.) THEY still cracked jokes the whole way, and looked like THEY were still having fun after 20 years. If there's one thing that'll never get old, it's the band mocking the audience members talking on cell phones.
John F: (to the guy as he tried to explain) Yeah. Yeah. I know. We'll talk about it after the show.

My fiance thought John L. was cute, but was really attracted to the bass player, Dan.
hmph. Don't quite know what to think about that.

True to their word, though, the band played a lot of old stuff, and some newer, rocking stuff. I was told it would be an "Adult Fan Appreciation" show.
And if there's one thing that made the day, it's the huge foam fingers with "They MIGHT BE Giants" written on it. I think I'll try to remember to bring it to the next show.

Well, lots of fun. short review. Glad I went, though. It was a nice day to be outside listening to music.

Today's a good day

My life is more that what men make of it.
I've always said
Don't put your trust in the wrong person, or you'll wind up dead
If you need to find another way to ease your mind
Be true to yourself and in time everything will be fine

Today's a good day to live up to my reputation
Today's a good day to free us up and ska the nation
And no matter what you say the groove will continue to play
Play until the day we are repaid

Here I sit thinking about the road that we have traveled
And every other man still hopes that we become unraveled
I do not claim to know the answer to every single question
All that I can really say is we are on a worldy mission

- Bucket

Yeah, I know I'm just entering in stuff that other people wrote, but damn, if it's not funny.
