You want snark, Heretik? George Lucas will feel the dark side of the force. Give me what the little green guy was drinking.

Night Bird

Can I have anything with Cranberry juice in it, please Dear Heretik.

The Heretik

Sure, maybe a little splash of vodka? Hey, look there's Robert Stone.

Night Bird

Nah, I don't like vodka, how about Champagne?

"I've seen the devil of violence and the devil of greed and the devil of hot desire; but, by all the stars! these were strong, lusty, red-eyed devils that swayed and drove men-men, I tell you. But as I stood on that hillside. I foresaw that in the blinding sunshine of that land, I would become acquainted with a flabby, pretending weak-eyed devil of a rapacious and pitiless folly."
Conrad-Heart of Darkness

Nick Lowe

As I walk through
This wicked world
Searchin' for light in the darkness of insanity.

I ask myself
Is all hope lost?
Is there only pain and hatred, and misery?

And each time I feel like this inside,
There's one thing I wanna know:
What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding? Ohhhh
What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding?

And as I walked on
Through troubled times
My spirit gets so downhearted sometimes
So where are the strong
And who are the trusted?
And where is the harmony?
Sweet harmony.

'Cause each time I feel it slippin' away, just makes me wanna cry.
What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding? Ohhhh
What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding?


So where are the strong?
And who are the trusted?
And where is the harmony?
Sweet harmony.

'Cause each time I feel it slippin' away, just makes me wanna cry.
What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding? Ohhhh
What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding? Ohhhh
What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding?

i'm a big fan of yours Nick

Nick Lowe

Can I buy you a drink, Big Fan Jen?

jen

oh no, i want to buy you one Nick. what will you have?

jen

I know you love the sound of breaking glass, though, so you have to promise not to drop it.

Nick Lowe

No, I wouldn't drop that glass, thanks.

Oh, I can't take another heartache, Though you say you're my friend, I'm at my wits' end!

jen

You say your love is bona fide, but that don't coincide with the things that you're doing.

Nick Lowe

Well I do my best to understand dear,
But you still mystify, and I want to know why.
I pick myself up off the ground
To have you knock me back down again and again!
And when I ask you to explain, you say

You've gotta be
Cruel to be kind in the right measure,
Cruel to be kind it's a very good sign,
Cruel to be kind means that I love you,
Baby, you've gotta be cruel to be kind.

jen

And so it goes and so it goes

Nick Lowe

I remember the night the kid cut off his right arm
In a fit to save a bit of power
He got fifty thousand watts
In a big acoustic tower

jen

Now up jumped the U.S. representative
He's the one with the tired eyes
747 for the midnight condition
Flyin' back from a peace keepin' mission

Nick Lowe

In the air there's aftershave lotion
In the wake of a snake bit Persian
On his arm is a skintight vision
Wondering why she aint mine she is whistling

But where it's going no one knows

jen

That old alarm clock gives a yell
starting another day in hell

jen

gotta get some zzzzz's before the cold grey light of dawn, see ya, Nick.

mikez

I'll have a Chickenhawk Martini - Gin with a splash of crocodile tears the 101st Fighting Keyboarders will shed for the 1649 this Memorial Day.

The Alchemist

I'll have a perspective and soda tank'ee.

I need it.
