Random thoughts

We had our annual company meeting yesterday. The highlight was a cake that read "Happy Birthday Everyone." Now that's an engineering solution to an engineering problem.

I was listening to Funky Cold Medina on the radio and was struck by how much cowbell there is in the song. Probably more than Don't Fear the Reaper. It made me wonder why it wasn't chosen for the More Cowbell sketch, but something told me that SNL can more easily pull off Blue Oyster Cult than Tone Loc.

I googled the phrase "funky cold medina lyrics" and the first site was weddingvendors.com which titled the song "funkey cold medina lyrics." That sound you hear is Tone Loc raspily sobbing.

Or it could be Young MC crying because he's the one that wrote "Funky Cold Medina".

I hate myself for knowing that.

i was at a bar lastnight that played Funky Cold Medina.


i thought Tone Loc was great in the movie Heat but his break thru role was in Ace Ventura.

do you think he made enough money off Funky Cold Medina to retire?

That Tone Loc dude was totally right-on. He liked dead hookers almost as much as I did.

Earl: The same man wrote Bust a Move and Funky Cold Medina? There should be statues of him in all city squares.

Carl: I think Jiggs or Booty may know Menlo Park.

Jammer: Actually, it was Young MC who wrote I Love Dead Hookers, Tone Loc just made it famous.

Ubie: We should all just move to Berkeley and run a commune.

Tits: That was my gmail status line for a couple days.

Scarlet: Happy All Hallow's Eve Eve!

Kendra: Your credibility? Remember this is the place where I revealed I like Time After Time.
