    Well well well.

    Time to rock it. I'm losing so many. All I know is I'm going out in a flame.

    I can't believe he's gone now.

    I used to wonder when I was a kid why my grandparents and all the older people around me would always make note of someone's passing.

    I thought it morbid at the time.

    Now I realize that all they were doing was acknowledging that life is fleeting and time is precious.

    So rock it. Well my Baba never said that. That's my vernacular. But you get my drift. :eusa_angel:

    It's times like this, you have to wonder if there's a God who really gives a crap about us. He takes Zappa and Lennon and sticks us with Bruce Fucking Springstein
