Moment of lyric – youtube video

ORANGE no SLIDE
Utsusu sora
SPONGE no PRIDE
Burasakete

SPIDER
Kike totta sono yokan wa
Kakusanakuta tte ii n da
Iro no tsuita yume mitai na

Ride on Shooting Star
Kokoro no koe de
Sandanjû no yô ni
Utai tsutzuketa

GRUNGE no HAMSTER
Otona bite
REVENGE no LOBSTER
Hiki tsurete

SNIPER
Fuchi totta sono sekai ni
Nani ga mieru tte i n da
Nerau mae ni sawaritai na

Ride on Shooting Star
Kimi o sagashite
Kindanshôjô chû
Uso o tsuita

Ride on Shooting Star
Kokoro no koe de
Sandanjû no yô ni
Utai tsutzuketa

An orange slide
Extends into the sky
A pride that’s full of holes
It’s what I hang by

SPIDER
The prophecy might actually come true
of the mysterious beginnings of our union
That dream of every color, I want to see it

“Ride On Shooting Star”
Chants a voice from my heart
Sometimes you don’t want it
But it’s always there

The grunge of a hamster
It’s all that those adults see
The revenge of a lobster
It all comes with the territory

SNIPER
With all the ignorance in the world,
Tell me what you see
As I set my aim forward, I want to sit back

Ride On Shooting Star
I’m searching for you
The forbidden kiss of a girl
Was the lie I told

“Ride on shooting star”
Chants a voice from my heart
Sometimes you don’t want it
But it’s always there


Well, seeing as my lj is rapidly approaching it’s sixth year of pretty much daily posts… what sort of knowledge can I glean from it?

some analysis in the form of graphs.

I’m not crazy about the new vet that took over Newt’s old doctor’s practice. I get a distinct “push sales of stuff” vibe, and I’m not going to gamble his health on someone I don’t trust implicitly.

Spent the rest of saturday researching closer, more trustworthy cat-docs. There are a ton in the area, so I’m confident that a good one will turn up.


Danny came by unexpectedly at 3:30pm.. I returned home at 4pm. Why he didn’t call me on my cell phone to say he was in the area is beyond me.


MooTube.com, the first 24/7 inside look at the daily life of Texas Longhorn cattle. Visitors to the site will get an exclusive, bovine’s-eye-view, as wireless cow-cams, attached to the Longhorns’ collars, reveal the day-to-day intrigues of life on the range.

Cool page, but way too much idiot flash.


Earth Day Ecological footprint Quiz

in comparison, the average ecological footprint in your country is 24 acres per person.
worldwide, there exist 4.5 biologically productive acres per person.
if everyone lived like you, we would need 2.9 planets.


The Mighty Heroes – I was really in love with cartoon as a kid.

“The Monsterizer”
One of the adventures of Rope Man, Strong Man, Diaper Man, Tornado Man and Cuckoo Man. In this installment, the Boris Karloff-like “Monsterizer” turns the city’s prominent figures into monsters, and it’s up to the bumbling Mighty Heroes to save the day!

“The Frog”
In this installment, they must defeat The Frog, who’s flooded the city of Goodhaven in an attempt to steal cash.

Powers :
Well, they all can fly. That’s handy.

Rope Man – Stretching, body of rope, later copied by the super globetrotters “Spaghetti man”, Sailor
Strong Man – Very Strong, Can Fly, Clumsy Ox, Auto Mechanic
Diaper Man – Brains of the group, his bottle could be used as a throwing weapon, and the extremely elastic nipple at the top could be used to wrap the bottle around objects for retrieval or as a slingshot. The milk in it had rejuvenating properties, and was used to boost Strong Man’s strength on more than one occasion.
Tornado Man – Turns into a human tornado. I don’t recall him doing any big windy-power stuff.
To this day, I don’t know what Cukoo Man’s powers were (if any) outside of being able to fly, and knowledge of birds and/or timepieces.

If they ever learned to coordinate attacks, I never saw it happen.
