I can't help but wonder...

...if Elton John is at home right now, seated before a shockingly garish piano, with sweat dripping from his hairplugs, as he furiously scribbles yet another hideous lyrical rewrite that begins with "Goodbye, Vickie Lynn."

I doubt it. Big diff between Diana and the tart.

Nonetheless, Elton never has been one to allow good taste or common sense to get in the way of making a buck.

LOL! I had that exact same thought. When the news channels started comparing her to Marilyn Monroe and Princess Diana, I think my eyes rolled out of my head.

"And it seems to be me, you lived your life like a digger in the gold. Never knowin' who to cling to when the law kicked in."

Ok, the first attempt was awful...here's a better shot.

Goodbye Vicki Lynn,
Though I never knew you at all
You had the gall to pose yourself
When Playboy layouts called.

You crawled out of the trailer
and J. Howard whispered into your brain,
He put you in a mansion,
and he made you change your name.

And it seems to me, you lived your life, like a famewhore in the wind.
Never knowing who to sleep with
when the urge kicked in.
And I would've like to've known you, but I was just afraid.
Your geezer died out long before, his latest will was made.



--ok...that was terrible, but it's a start. I was trying to work Trimspa in. Darn.

Looks like I better fire up the keyboards and multitrack and get myself in the proper state of mind to do some recording work. Now, if only I can remember where I put that feather boa and the glittery platforms...

By the way, which one of you is singing?





...hmmm, "trimspa..."


Oo-rah?
Scrimshaw?
Vespa?
Chickasaw?
Rickshaw?
Limbaugh?
Catspaw?






(Shit, the ridiculously oversized sunglasses, did I lose them New Year's Eve?)

I did the lyrics. Mary can sing!! :)

Did you leave them in the backyard after the ritual, Solstice, chicken slaughter, sweet cheeks? ;)

Does hitting the KFC drive-thru constitute a legitimate ritual chicken slaughter? I am SUCH a pagan...

Egads. "Countdown" had the Anna Nicole story captioned as "America's Rose."

It's traileriffic.
