Evolution Gone Mad



Yea, that's pretty much what the polak doctor said when he saw me pop out backwards and with my umbilical cord wrapped around my neck. To answer of few comments. Sid, I got a lot of Chris Elliot rags back in the day, particularly when he had that TV show where he was a newspaper boy. I think it was GET A LIFE, we had the same profile when bearded, and this was back when he wore glasses like mine. And yea, Bob, I love polka music, Frankie Yankovic and Big Steve and his Stevedores playing their stomach Steinways. I didn't mind listening to the Mexican radio stations on the night shift; Carmarina and Sophia would switch stations in the bindery every two hours, but most Mexican music is polka-based. Even the ballads, to an extent. One night I will have to post about the coolness that is Dick Contino.

My favorite mutant is the six eyed fish on the Simpsons.

Wow, you reminded me of something...in NY on Sundays I used to listen to an AM polka program hosted by "Herman the German" and once he played this Mexican polka music and I was agog, I did not know that there was such a thing till then! It sounded like authentic beer-garden German polka music. X-D I miss listening to Herman.

Heheh, yeah, the six-eyed fish.

GET A LIFE was funny stuff. Wish they could have done a season or two more. Total surrealist bizarro.

My ex & I used to love "Get a Life." You've inspired me to see if the shows are online anywhere (although I suspect I won't find them as funny these days.)
