I’m the Dandy Highwayman.

Whom you’re too scared to mention.

I spend my cash on looking flash and grabbing you attention.

I made a “Rudie Can’t Fail” playlist on both iTunes and Pandora. I switch back and forth depending on what shitty song they try to sneak in there and if I’m out of skips. Let me tell you, they both think that “Stand and Deliver” by Adam Ant is the jam and that I should listen to it constantly.

This is not Adam Ant.

This is not Adam Ant.

And sure, I love that song as much as the next guy, but four times in a day is pushing it. Especially, when all I wanted to hear was this song:

Lately, I’ve had the urge to buy and wear some black and white checkered suspenders. Maybe some Dr. Martens, too. If I can find a pair that was made in England.

Anyway, the dizziness never let up yesterday, but I fought through it and got bunches done.

I managed to get the last of the print shop moved over to the new studio. I mowed the grass. Then, I dug a hole in my front yard and planted my Sakura, finally. I tutored the children. I got caught up onĀ Outlander. I gave a lot of encouragement. And I listened to a lot of ska. It was a good day.

Also, this:

Today, the great assembling of the studio begins. Probably more ska, too. And tutoring. And maybe a sandwich.

See ya’ tomorrow.

Da diddly qua qua. ~SC

    Been listening to the Blue Meanies on overdrive this week. Also, I read that as “I tortured the children.”
    It was a laugh.

    I have a feeling ska is due for another revival next year. Dust off your Voodoo Glow Skulls and Mighty Mighty Bosstones records.

  3. Sweetbread says:

    I fully endorse this proposed ska revival.

    Good chuckle from the Clint Dempsey video. Can’t imagine Steven Gerrard walking around London and having folks say: “Yeah, the England team was rather disappointing, maybe if they let the Captain play it would’ve been better.” Mind you, no one would want to talk about this year’s World Cup performance in the first place.
