Last night I met Shannon at the Corner Brewery to throw down on some Sacred Cow IPAs. We've been talking about meeting for a beer for awhile, and finally it worked out. Greg was also there and he bellied up to the bar with us, disappearing periodically to have a smoke outside after being reminded that he couldn't light up inside, which he kept doing. So, I got to know these folks a little better, the way that one does over fermented beverages, that I'd really only known before as acquaintances.
I brought with me a big honkin' tomato from my garden for Shannon. As the tomato beautifully squatted red before us, it served as a focal point for some interesting discussion about food preservation methods and the undigestibility of corn.
Nostalgiac '70s music was playing last night, so I must have said "I love this song" at least five times, but I only said "I wish I could smell gas right now" only once. I can't remember exactly why, maybe it was because the corn discussion led to talking about ethanol exhaust. That had to have been it. I love the smell of gas and garages.
Anyway, the beer and nostalgia led to a flurry of Itunes buying when I got home. This is what I bought:
The singles Killer Queen and You're My Best Friend by Queen, Siren by Roxy Music, Goats Head Soup by Rolling Stones, I deliberated over buying Tommy by the Who, but I thought I might only listen to We're Not Going to Take It so I'm waiting on that one, and The Gospel Spirit: Loretta Lynn. I'm an atheist who loves old country gospel, go figure.
One of the songs that played last night was one that I always liked, but I have no idea who sings it or the name. Can anyone help me here? It goes like "Sign, sign, everywhere a sign...do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?"
