How many perfectly awful covers of Tom Waits' 1985 soft rock classic "Downtown Train" are there? Man, and I thought Rod Stewart was bad - I was changing the boy's pants and we were watching VH1 Classic and this hideous version by Patti "The Warrior" Smythe came on.


So there we are. Done. I have a strong desire to exist in the present for the time being. They say it may snow the next few days, and in any event it will be cold, I thought I would stick it our for an hour this time. Took me to the cemetery, enetered just as When All's Well came on (Tracey and Ben would love that) and rounded Garfield's Momument for Road to Nowhere.

"Well we know where we're going, but we don't know where we've been."

Beautiful day. Performance tonight. I have been taking Arnica for my bruises.

UPDATE: Knee flare-up! Brilliant!

"The Warrior" is one of my alltime favorite songs! Don't dis Scandal.
