I am not shocked -- not shocked -- to find that gambling is going on in here

Six things.

Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh! I'm not sure if I'm more with you on the Enron/Davis travesty or the Jonathan Richman under appreciation travesty!

Solution? We must rock, rock, rock at the government center to make it right.

Actually, paisley was, in Western culture, a trapping of the aristocracy long before it hit the countercultural torsos of Jim McGuinn et al. The imported paisley shawl was, if I have my facts straight, a high-powered luxury status symbol in 19th(?)-century Britain.

I care about the Jonathon Richman thing! And also about the California thing, more so now that I will be returning to it's sunny shores. But, dude, you cannot mess with "Roadrunner once, roadrunner twice, I'm in love with rock n' roll."

I think it's a greater tragedy that the juicy bananas cover of "Pablo Picasso" is the one everyone remembers. Though those horns do add a little something to it.

Yes! They're ALWAYS hotter with the glasses ON!

This infuriates me.

The "Pablo Picasso" on the Repo Man soundtrack is actually by the Burning Sensations, but I do agree it's sad that not enough people know everything there is to know about Jonathon Richman!
