Intermission (Mr. Bad Example)

I wish I could do this. I wish I had the means, technology, patience, and -- let's face it -- ability. Jonathan can, so I especially hope he appreciates this, a recent YouTube discovery that I've been playing over and over. Maybe it's the song. God, I miss Warren Zevon...

Thanks for putting me in there. And Zevon was a great one. The fact that they named the Thompson gunner in Lost World: Jurassic Park II Roland is still pretty much the only thing I enjoy about that movie.

And the line from the song of the same name, "Send lawyers, guns and money, the shit has hit the fan" is some kind of genius. In fact, that whole song is.

Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner
Norway's greatest son.
You can still see his headless body,
stalking through the night
In the muzzle flash of Roland's Thomspon Gun,

I think one of the most heartbreaking two hours I spent was watching the two-hour PBS documentary about Zevon's last album.
