fun songs about death and a guy in a towel

Some will die in hot pursuit
In fiery auto crashes
Some will die in hot pursuit
While sifting through my ashes
Some will fall in love with life
And drink it from a fountain
That is pouring like an avalanche
Coming down the mountain

out of the blue i remembered pepper. oddly enough i remembered the album was called electric larryland before i remembered pepper. but i have a weird mind.

after a quick download, it struck me how similar the song is to people who died. so i’m going back and forth between the two songs — death in texas vs. death in new york. and i’m diggin’ it.

in other news, there was a guy in vons at ten o’clock at night in a tshirt and a towel.

  1. challenging conditions too – can’t use flash, must shoot from out of purse without looking obvious or even looking through viewfinder – and they guy was walking fast too.

  2. Pepper is almost exactly what you would get by putting Jim Carroll’s “People who Died” and Becks “Loser” in a blender and mixing them up with a little bit of Valium for seasoning.

  3. my goodness, you see guys like that all over down here. but i wish i had a shot of being in a 7-11 once when the three guys in front of me were fanned out like a deck of cards, looking out the window at a 15-yo girl in a bikini. priceless. i love watching guys watch girls.
