Got Cake? We’re Gonna Live Blog It

Look.  Richard Harris was "A Man Called Horse".  Have you seen it? You should.  He was a bad, bad man. A tough man.  So, why then--in 1968--did he feel the need to sing a song like MacArthur Park?

It's an age-old mystery, rivaled only now by this question:

Why would Ryan Suter and his BFF Zach Parise go to Minnesota where they'll never win anything more than a division crown (if that) when they could have gone to Detroit or Chicago or Pittsburgh, where Cups would have been guaranteed?

Someone left the cake out in the rain

I don't think that I can take it

'Cause it took so long to bake it

And I'll never have that recipe again, oh no

He left his frigging cake out in the rain.  And he can't take it.  Why? Because it took so damn long to bake it.  And now the Ingalls sisters are in Walnut Grove with the barn dances and the one-room schools and that little bitch Nellie Olson running roughshod over the whole damn town.  No Cups, but plenty of family and love and cake.

And now they're here (in Detroyet) tonite, where they could have been all along. 

Confusion rules the day when it comes to Dick Harris, Horse, horrible songs and the Ingalls sisters. 

It's a Live Blog, bitches.  LGRW.

So glad to see our ad program working like it is supposed to, you know, try to find an ad related to the blog post.

Now Baskin Robbins ice cream cake ads suddenly appear, I wonder why?

FYI, Sister Cecilia taught us that song in 9th grade choir. Now I am having thoughts of high school girls running around in uniforms.

Waylon Jennings did a cover of that song. I never bothered to look up the original version, the shit one can learn here at A2Y.
Cheers to shoving it down the cake eating Ingalls twins throats tonight.

Fuch you, Chief, for bringing MacArthur’s Park to the 19.  You have shamed and certainly doomed us.  Your Sirius subscription should be revoked ASAP and you be forced to listen to the local Mexican country music stations all day.

Evenin’ Bitches. Jeebus Chief. Richard Harris? McArthur Park? Cake? I did a little reading aboot the song.

I’ve learned that Waylon Jennings won a Grammy in 1970 for that song. And, a lot of other useless facts I didn’t need to know. Thanks.

when the wild steal a few cups away from the wings, then maybe we would have a rivalry. a few dozen fights tossed in, and maybe a bench clearing brawl, with the four goalies from both teams getting into.

that might do it.

Muleskinner Blues.

I’m more of the Jerry Reed and Chet Atkins homer.  Unless you’re in the know, Jerry Reed is one of the most underrated guitar players ever.  If he lived long enough to maybe even jam with Stevie Ray Vaughn, I can quit living right there.
