Morning Passive - 103/365
What is drawing? How does one come to it? It is working through an invisible iron wall that seems to stand between what one feels and what one can do. How is one to get through that wall - since pounding at it is of no use? In my opinion one has to undermine that wall, filing through it steadily and patiently.

Top 10 Fictional Bands

As we all know, some of the best things in life are entirely untrue. This holds no less to be actually the fact with music as well – I think you’ll find.

If I’m honest with myself – and I am not – I must admit that many of my favorite musical ensembles are entirely fictional.

  1. Armada (aka Rod Torfulsen’s Armada)  (of “The Kids In The Hall”)
  2. Buckaroo Banzai and the Hong Kong Cavaliers  (of “The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension”)
  3. Buddha Stalin  (of “Strangers With Candy”)
  4. Dr. Teeth & The Electric Mayhem  (of “The Muppet Show”)
  5. The Heaven Seventeen  (of “A Clockwork Orange”)

    Isn’t “Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Band” one of your favorite non-bands?

  • Neal Romanek

    I couldn’t decide between The Rutles and Sgt. Pepper.

    And what was the name of the pop star in “The Jetsons” who sang “Eep Orp Oop Ah Ah”??

    -Don’t have a clue: never watched TV cartoons, except – Ah! Ha! -Speed Racer!

    What do you mean by this comment?
    .. watch the spit sizzle??
    I do not understand this ..

    Hmm, first the “Swiftboaters”. Now the…Dresdeners?

    “That Vonnegut! He was anti-American. Why, he didn’t even spit on the German corpses when we was in Dresden. But me? I like to watch the spit sizzle.”

  • The benefits of not having bad breath or smelly clothes is surely
    an added bonus for those who are inside the spotlight all of the time.
    Unfortunately, you throw in the towel a lot by making use of cartomizers rather than a three-piece
    design. Buy e-liquid coming from a known web store such as
    e-cigarette510.
