This is how hard I am to understand

(click for illustration)
I read on the web that Tower Records is going under. So today is the first day of the liquidation sale of all their merchandise. I drive out there, get a flat, repair the flat and I don't even park to browse a few CDs. With my little Tower Records air freshener that I still have dangling from the rear view mirror, I drive to a gas station to fill up the spare with air.
    From the gasoline station, I drive all the way cross town to inquire about a tire. I've been having leak problems on one of my tires and I've been procrastinating getting it replaced. Fortunately, it is this very tire that blows up beyond repair. So, let's summarize. For me to get from point A to point C, I first have to go to point B (blow-out).
    I feel this long weekend is going by too fast. I called Bloomy's to see if they had any coffee machines in stock. The one at work leaks like a mother. Bloomy's never seems to have what I'm looking for when I call by phone. It reminds me of the real estate commercial I hear on the radio from time to time. An interested buyer calls the seller and disguises his voice. He mimics foreigners and it isn't until he disguises his voice like an Englishman that the seller responds by offering to show the house, whereas she had refused the previous callers, obviously for their cultural background. So, yes. If you all could hear my voice, you would think I was a poor, lower class laborer.
    The song lyrics in the cartoon above should read:
SLICE ME, DICE ME
TURN ME TO MINCE
BREATHE ME SWEETLY
WHILE TEARS WELL IN MIST

    The thing I don't like about poetry is the need to rhyme. If I could write poetry without rhyming, that would be so much easier. Anyway, I made a couple typos in the work "sweetly", and the temple of the lyric is now different. Grrr. I'm to lazy to fix it. So what. Who cares.

    Yes, all those fabulous memories of browsing the isles at Tower will soon become history. I still haven't had the time to stop by and browse their collection. I'm interested in SEPULTURA. I don't have any CDs by them.
    I use to think poetry was so easy to write because I'm very sensitive and in touch with my emotions. In those days I didn't bother to rhyme. Blank verse is OK, but it sounds a lot better if it rhymes, if only because it proves that much more time was spent by the scribe make it perfect.

Perhaps some other record company may take it over,as in Picadilly.I shouldn't worry too much over Sepultura.Although I'm basically a jazz freak-with Bach,Mozart,Dylan,Pink Floyd thrown in-I bought a cd of Sepultura,naïvely expecting shamanic electronic music à la Tangerine Dream,but it turned out to be ear-splitting heavy metal.I recommend it only to masochists who enjoy crashing headaches.

    Which [Sepultura] album do you have? I don't have anything from them (yet). Masochist? Headbanging headaches? I went to my first SLAYER concert this year and it was an experience unlike no other standing in the pit directly in front of the band. I thought it was absolutely awesome, and I've become a SLAYER fan ever since. You could say it was my first real HEAVYMETAL concert since my concert experience only covers HAIR METAL bands like WASP. Yes, that describes me close enough. My taste in HEAVY METAL leans toward either black metal or doom metal. I also like gothic bands like Evanescence. I use to listen to classic and jazz but that kind of music just doesn't seem to calm my nerves anymore. So, to psyche myself up every morning for the drive to work, I put on stuff by LAMB OF GOD, WASP, SLAYER, etc. I really love my LOVE AND THEFT album by Bob Dylan. Do you have it?

Hmmm...I see what you mean ! The double cd of aerial bombardment is called "The Roots of Sepultura"and is on Roadrunner.On an antifascist demo I had the experienced of being deafened by heavy metal-I'll stick to Mozart and Charlie Parker.I love Bob Dylan-he's a poet,he knows it,but I don't have that one.
