Baby Got Back and a Banjo!

I've been gone a while, but will be back soon, with a spanking new site. And when I say spanking I mean your ass. It takes up all my time, but in the meanwhile chew on another hip-hop classic.

Baby Got Back, as interpretted by Jonathan Coulton

Propers and Disrespects - #1

Propers to:
FPL(Florida Power & Light) for getting my power back on in about 4 days and my parent's power on in less than 72 hours. The hard-working men and women who "ride the lightning" worked until well past dark often surrounded by kids who watched in awe and anticipation as the the hard-hats floated in their buckets. Neat how when the power goes out kids learn to "play" again.

Disrepects to:
FPL(Florida Power & Light), who thought it would be OK to estimate a monthly electric bill and expect people would pay it without griping. Seems logical, since meter-reading would be impossible, dangerous and a waste of manpower. Thats what I thought at first. But, a better solution would have been to bite the bullet for one month allow customers to choose if they wanted to pay it or not, giving folks a chance to recover a bit if needed. It didn't help that the estimate, of course, included time in which the power was OUT! My car insurance company did this. Cable companies are doing this. Now they have announced future rate hikes to pay for all this. Anyone know much about Natural gas companies in Florida? Buy stock in it now.

Propers to:
Starbucks, who seemed to have skipped over the Thanksgiving holiday and dived right into a bright red Christmas theme, saving their customers from the likes of Gravy Chai Latte or Cranberry Sauce Frappuccino Chiller.

Disrepects to:
Whatever company it was that unleashed its first Chritmas commercial on around November 5. You see, dill-holes, I wasn't even paying attention. Ha Ha. I barely had time to deflate my giant Frankenstein yard ornament and already I have to stick an airhose in Santa. Yippie!

for ~eyes

In a flutter of magnesium fluorescence
Sensual is set free
from the grammarian cage
of adjective.
It becomes you. Noun. Subject.

Slight hairs reach into slick air
Charging it. Pulsing.

Sun rays breaking through
near dusk or,
pure moonlight
on a dewed orchid.
Voyeur in Rapture.

A soft bend, a curve
A diffraction of the mind's eye

Taut skin vibrating
is a saxophone reed
singing its sweetest song

Transfiguring gaze.
Thoughts of the most ancient lover,
The self.
The shutter palpates again.

The sensual becomes you.
