Friday Fives

1. Given the circumstance that you would need to – how would you go about getting rid of the body?

Idaelly, by fire. However, there is no discreet way to handle that. Instead, line the garage with tarps thoroughly. Then, use a handheld Skillsaw (about $80 at your local Home Depot) and break the body into 6 inch pieces. Then, travel the state disposing of pieces in ziplock freezer bags. After which, clean the skillsaw in bleach and dispose of it in a river. As for the tarps, those you put in my ex-wife’s trunk.

2. Have any turn on? (not necessarily sexual) In other words, to answer the question, what do you dig?

besides trucks (I just love trucks, must be a small dick thing)… I love true crime on TV. I watch at least 5 hours a week on true crime documentaries. Creepy, huh?

3. Are you related to anyone famous somewhere in your family tree?

Sure, Bobo. I am a very close friend and relative of America’s finest photojournalist – Brendan McDermid. The man is like a god in the industry. Plus, if you have ever seen a sports picture attributed to Rueters… it was probably Bobo. I tell people I know Bobo to get laid. btw, it doesn’t work.

4. Real world filter: I drove upon a really bad auto accident last night and it got me thinking. What is the grossest thing you have ever seen?

last fall, I was called out to a plane accident for the Red Cross. It was grizzly. A plane crashed about a mile before the runway because of engine troubles. Everyone on board died, and I was standing a few feet from the wreckage helping out however I could. It was very surreal, to say the least.

5. What is your favorite cover song and by what group?

Well, to address this properly… I have to reference my wonderful fried Jaime from Phoenix (who I grew up with). He has a policy that all covers songs are bad and should be gravely punished. That being said, I will have to go with a song that I didn’t even know was a cover until about 10 years later. the Bangles did ‘Hazy Shade of Winter’ for a Robert Downey movie (I think it was ‘Less that Zero’). Anyhow, the song is just terrific: it is well written, rockin’, and sung by babes. Many years later I learned it was a Simon and Garfunkle song… which was weird because I have been listening to them for years. However, that is a pretty obscure track. So that is up there as a really great cover. The other cover that might be better than the original (and the original was epic) is Romeo & Juliet. It was done initially by Dire Straits but was covered with more intense passion than your brain can handle by the Indigo Girls on ‘Rites of Passaage’.

thanks for your time, and thanks to Roy as always. Coming very soon, a treatise on the sociological implications of what a parking lot looks like at a Motley Crue concert.

No, seriously you guys, I am going to see the Crue and Red Rocks tomorrow, and this had got to provide some fertile material.

  2. What is with people putting body parts in baggies? The flesh won’t decompose. It’d better to hurl the chunks au natural in to the wild and let Nature do her thing. Just a tip from your neighborhood scientist!

  3. best cover: All Along the Watchtower by Jimi Hendrix (written by Dylan). Though I have heard that song about a million times, so maybe that’s why it didn’t get mentioned…

  4. The best cover… is the whole “Have a Ball” album by “Me First and the Gimme Gimmes.” But if pressed for a specific tune, I’d have to recommend their version of James Taylor’s “Fire and Rain.”
