Written By: cahwyguy - Sat Aug 01, 2009 @ 7:57 am PST

OK, Folks, you know the drill. Allright everyone, let’s gather in front of our large, 13″, Black and White TV set, and watch as a tall, lanky man in a khaki uniform strides out, introduces himself as Sheriff John, and, but wait… he’s wearing sunglasses, and swaying back and forth. He pulls out his 88-key accordion, and says, “This one’s for you, smoochie“. He starts singing…

You know it doesn’t make much sense / There ought to be a law against / Anyone who takes offense / At a day in your celebration

OK, Folks, you know the drill. Allright everyone, let’s gather in front of our large, 13″, Black and White TV set, and watch as a tall, lanky man in a khaki uniform strides out, introduces himself as Sheriff John. He pulls out a bouzouki, strums it, and says, “This is for you, kaottic97”:

My mother says that little girls are made of sugar.
Happy birthday! (Happy birthday!)
My mother says my life will be a white, white ribbon.
Happy birthday! (Happy birthday!)
And all my tomorrows are waiting in a line
Shimmering, glimmering, soon to be mine.

My mother says, she looks at me and she remembers.
Happy birthday! (Happy birthday!)
She envys with a love I’m just about to see.
But she was yesterday (she was yesterday)
And I’m tomorrow (I’m tomorrow)
Happy birthday (Happy birthday)
To me!

    La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
Happy birthday! (Happy birthday!)
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
Happy birthday! (Happy birthday!)

And all my tomorrows are waiting in a line
Shimmering, glimmering, soon to be mine.

My mother says, she looks at me and she remembers.
Happy birthday! (Happy birthday!)
She envys with a love I’m just about to see.
But she was yesterday (she was yesterday)
And I’m tomorrow (I’m tomorrow)
Happy birthday (Happy birthday)
Happy birthday (Happy birthday)

Birthday Wishes for tsgeisel

Written By: cahwyguy - Mon Jul 20, 2009 @ 5:00 am PST

OK, Folks, you know the drill. Allright everyone, let’s gather in front of our large, 13″, Black and White TV set, and watch as a tall, lanky man in a khaki uniform strides out, introduces himself as Sheriff John, and pulls out his accordion. He plugs it into a collection of electronic equipment that makes it sound more like a full organ with reverb, and starts singing the song “Born Never Asked” by Laurie Anderson for tsgeisel:

It was a large room. Full of people. All kinds.
And they had all arrived at the same buidling
at more or less the same time.
And they were all free. And they were all
asking themselves the same question:
What is behind that curtain?

You were born. And so you’re free. So happy birthday.
