Mom always said I'd lose it...
I might as well go up and talk to a wall
'cause all the words are having no effect at all.
It's a funny thing. Am I all alone?
What are words for when no one listens anymore?
Missing Persons — "Words"
I was never a big Missing Persons fan back in the day but I didn't dislike them either. Their videos would show up on MTV now and then and they were generally part of the background din that was so much a part of the early 80s. (For any younger people […]
In 1998, I started a blog, something I could control very easily and update at my own whim.
Hello, gentle readers. I know, I know. It's been too long.
