Oh, my love my darling, I’ve hungered for your touch…

November 5, 2009

Blog Guy, what do you think of the huge musical news for this season?

It’s amazing, huh?

I’ll say! Who ever would have thought, a Bob Dylan Christmas CD!

Oh, that. I thought you were talking about those European soccer coaches recording all the great Righteous Brothers hits – “Unchained Melody,” “You’ve Lost that Lovin’ Feelin’,” etc… Those coaches can really belt it out.

Soccer coaches? Righteous Brothers? This is just too stupid, even for you!

Fine, but I’ve already pre-ordered mine. It’s a tribute to Phil Spector, the Righteous Brothers’ legendary producer who of course is now in prison for murder.

I’m sure I’ll regret this. I already do. What’s this Spector tribute CD called?

“Chained Melody,” of course.

And in other news, EU soccer coaches were visibly upset today after learning of the Russian vodka shortage. Britain’s Prince Charles has been called to intervene. Video at 11.

I am so sad for all that vodka that got wasted…
And these coaches seem to feel my pain….

Robert, do you know when they have decided to release this CD? Will be only on iTunes? I’ve just GOT to get it! I mean, after seeing all the wasted vodka, I do need something to cheer me up!

Gosh M, don’t take this the wrong way, but if Righteous Brothers music cheers you up, I’m thinking you may need to get your meds adjusted, just like Little Miss Random.

Well golly gee, I read the title to this one, and I just KNEW it was going to be about zombies in the restaurant business.

Life has been so much better since the meds have been adjusted. Birds are singing, the grass is greener, and I’m not troubled by any mysterious ‘white hat conspiracy’, mostly because I never notice anything except the singing birds and green grass.

I have noticed a fluctuation in libido though. The next post left me feeling very confused.

Yes Bob,
I just know this album will be right up there in sales with the Ethel Merman rap album, “Ethel be in da Hood” which also featured the rap genius of the Ernest Borgnine string ensemble. The makings of a sure Grammy winner!!
Take it from someone who knows !!
You heard it here first!!
No, Bob did not pay me for this golden tidbit…
Well, not very much…
