Looking Out A Dirty Window

Yes, I am looking out a dirty old window, but I don’t see any cars in the city go rushing by. Instead I just see my long green grass that I have to mow before people come over to eat my burnt offerings. That’s right motherfuckers, it’s BBQ season.

We’re the kids of America, whoa oh. Thanks to Metal Gear Solid V, that song is stuck in my head. I’m not complaining. At least it’s Bohemian Rhapsody.

Have I ever told you how much I hate Bohemian Rhapsody. I’m not really a queen fan, but I have a certain respect for what they did. I respect talent, but taste is a different beast entirely. And I think that’s all I want to say about that for right now…

(You never know, I might throw that into my stand up comedy routine. You know, if I ever man up enough to do a stand up comedy routine.)

But yes, now that you mention it, I have been playing a lot of Metal Gear Solid V. I don’t even feel bad. In fact, the reason there’s no podcasts this week is I’d rather be playing MGSV. Right now though, I’m listening to Rex Stiff And The Kinky Morticians — see soundcloud player at end of blog — and waiting for the caffeine and alpha brain to kick in. I told myself I wouldn’t play any video games today. I got shit to do. Mow the lawn, tidy up the house, food prep, shit like that. And so much for that right now…

Insert transition back to Kids Of America here.

For those of you who don’t know, MGSV has unlockable music that you can equip on your helicopter. The game takes place in 1984, so the music is contemporary for that era. You unlock the music by finding cassette tapes during missions. I found Kids Of America early on. Every time I find a new tape, I just can’t bring myself to change it. Well, I had the helicopter playing True by Spandau Ballet for awhile, and so much for that right now.

Kids Of America is my fucking jam and I don’t know why. My preferred version of the song is by Cascada. I think it’s what the kids would call a house cover or remix or something, but the sick thump of the four on the floor bass kick really just brings out the fuck yeah of the song.

(random thought: I wonder how many punk songs would sound good as a house remix)

And fuck all of that for right now… I think it’s time to get shit done around here and quit wasting time writing.
