click on my father, known around certain silver circles as Ol' Gap Tooth, for #2 in the series

ever feel like screaming? suddenly all of your problems reach a slow boil, and you're ready to burst unearthly and primitive? like, you try to label your condition with a neat word from psychology or nature, but you just can't, all you can muster up is the guttural growl of an animal, you have receded to your most primordial-ooze stage, all you are able to do is shout at the sun, cry at the moon, and yell and holler even after the cows have returned home. well, my dear friends, i have just the link for you. after viewing this link, your Penance shall be 3 Hail Marys, 1 Our Father, and return the altar wine that you stole to the refectory. it's good to twirl about and flip onto the couch like the lead singer here does, but don't take that type of behavior too far, or you'll end up like Tom Cruise jumping on the Oprah couch, and nobody wants to see that.
crazy comes in stages...

I like the Vines as much as the next guy, but I remember being quite amused by their antics during live performances. I recall them being kicked off The Tonight Show once. I always liked Letterman - sorry, your father - better than Jay.

Tom Cruise... He's a crazy law unto himself with or without Oprah's sofa.

But if madness is the only choice, if the men in white coats decide to strap in their binds, then let The Vines be my aural guide, let us scream and wail together.

Supremely perfect music to accompany your family pics, babe. The resemblance between you and your Dad is uncanny... :*

I've heard that primal scream therapy is supposed to be a good release. I just turn the music up and sing really loud when I need to 'get it out' of my system :)

Your blog isn't listed on my bloglist for some reason. I looked carefully... Weird. So is the man on the cover pic. ;)

cheeky babes: i hope the men in white coats take me to you, so that we may be crazy together, crazy in love, crazy in hot sex

kazi: as my two favorite men say all the time, "shout, shout, let it all out..." tears for fears ftw

nv: i wanted people to like me for me, not my famous father
