Jeff: I find myself on a Rush kick today
Bill: tried that one day…not really a fan
Jeff: to be honest I really only like 4 of their songs….
so to say I am on a kick is that I am listening to those songs 🙂
Bill: one being Tom Sawyer?
great base line
Subdivisions is my favorite
Bill: fly by night?
Jeff: the other 2 are Limelight and Roll the Bones
Jeff: fly by night has too much of a Boston-REO Speedwagon feel to it
Bill: how can you not be a fan of Boston and REO??
you seem the type to start belting out in public
Jeff: the reason you haven’t seen a reunion tour of REO Speedwagon is because I rounded them up, ground their hands to the wrist with a belt sander, hammered railroad spikes into their ears, sliced open their arteries and dragged them behind a salt truck (constantly spraying) at a speed just slow enough to let the pack of wolves nibble and lunge
wow…your hatred runs deep
remind me not to piss you off
Jeff: i would have poured all of my hatred into my ring when it was being made, but the guy was in florida and I didn’t like the idea of blowing up should I lose the finger
Bill: but you’d get to be a really cool disembodied eye surrounded by flames
Jeff: true, but I don’t have Barad’dur
I don’t think they eye thing would be so cool sitting on top of my house
my view would be limited and I think it would freak my neighbor Bob* out
Bill: but you have the cursed souls of REO speedwagon to use to summon those to you who could build it for you
assuming that there are nine of them
Jeff: there were only 5
Bill: and I think Bob is made of sterner stuff…he might be worried about the property value mostly
Jeff: I’ll kill the offspring to round it out
Bill: there you go….or Boston….
whichever is easier
there is Journey too
Jeff: “Hello? Oh hey Bob what’s u….no, man you have it all wrong. See my ring came off and…..No I’m not staring at your daughter’s windows it’s just that……what do you want me to do I HAVE NO FUCKING EYELID!!!”
do you think you could check with him ahead of time, see how he might feel about it?
“Hey Bob, how’s winter been treating you? Yeah, I’ve made some long term investments, and if they should fall through, I might need to build a tower to contain the Giant Lidless Eye I’d become if they do go south. Any issues you might have with that, you know…just trying to be a good neighbor and all”
Jeff: I like your approach
Jeff: maybe I could pass it off with a “Neighborhood Watch” spin
Bill: see…now you’re thinking!
Jeff: i could save on phone bills too if I just gave people Pilantirs
Bill: you have them all accounted for?
Jeff: it’s probably for the best, seeing as how no one knows who made them and as such there are no manuals or tech support for my parents
