Some people call me the space cowboy. Yeah, some call me the ganster of love. Some people call me Maurice.

While it's a bad song (iyhmo?), it did get me laid one time, so I've got a soft spot for it.

As for the links, scanning them doesn't tell me anything - can I ask for a pony? Can you sew on the reason for the links in the FPP for us drunks when FPPs are knitted?

iyho? that is

Er, I take it that you were performing it, PP, in a band.

And has that adequately offset all the booing and throwing of objects?

Cool stuff tdg. An environmentalist, socialist, senior advisor the world bank, a former Rockefeller protege, operates a 10,000 acre ranch-commune-cum-UFO hotspot in Colorado. Strange business, but I go for the tinfoil stuff.

I've always wonder what the "The Pompatus of Love" meant. Wikipedia provides the answer.

I like this post. It's just elliptical enough without being obtuse, while tying recent news stories together with fascinating context for a fun and interesting package. Bravo, thedailygrowl.

I read Wikipedia's link and The Straight Dope's (off of the Wikipedia page), and now I know even less about the pompatus of love than when I started.

I *like* that song. I hated it when it came out, but I've since married a girl to who I like to say, "I really love your peaches, wanna shake your tree-ee-ee!" (They really are nice peaches and any excuse to shake her tree is welcome.)

Hmm...seems like Findhorn, where Scotland's space cowboy Mike Scott rules the aesthetic roost. Only with bigger hills and no midges. Probably snakes though.

An interesting post. I fear that few actually read your links, however, getting distracted by the (overly-clever?) lyrical way of presenting the information.

". . .But the neocons may themselves have been played, and too blinded by their imperial overreach to know they've become useful idiots of another agenda which will mean America's ruin. An agenda which intends to reboot the world."

I had never heard of this guy. Fascinating.

Very, very interesting. I used to know a woman who spend a lot of time at Baca (looking for UFOs, IIRC) but I never knew that the people who ran it were the UN Strongs. Weird. thanks tdg.

Fascinating stuff.

But in a world where Sun Myung Moon owns the number one conservative newspaper in the US, I'm ready to believe anything.

Except the UFO part.

But the UFO is the most credible part.
