Ceci n'est pas une personne.

Today's lyrics post, Living & Drinking by the Portland artist, Jared Mees:

I had a dream that we were coming down, we were coming down,
But you were to strung out to see it.
I had a dream that we wore golden crowns and purple gowns,
we ruled the suburban kingdom.
I had a dream that we were settled down in a normal town,
we were absolutely ordinary.
I had a dream we owned a big ol' house and gigantic frowns
it was actually kinda scary.

But I'm a man of my dreams
When I'm dreamin'
At least thats how it seems
To be seemin'
During those six short hours
Between workin' and drinkin'
Workin' and drinkin'
Workin and drinkin
Workin and drinkin

I had a dream we were hiccup drunk in a pickup truck
Up on the tracks out in Issuza(?).
I had a dream we were singin' songs, they were slow and long
We sang them all with Rick Souza.
I had a dream we were sellin' out to get cash and clout
And then end up in all the movies.
I had a dream we could twist and shout and break it down
But we'd forgotten what was groovy.

But I'm a man of my dreams
When I'm dreamin'
At least that's how it seems
To be seemin'
During those six short hours
Between workin' and drinkin'
Oh Baby, Workin' and drinkin'
Oh Baby, Workin and drinkin
Oh Honey, Workin and drinkin

But I've only got one match left
To light two cigarettes
On the streets and if it breaks
I just know that
I ain't never gonna get
But I'll take life on the chin
Long as I've got Jack-N-Jim
This here guitar
And all my wonderful holiday friends

Sadly, I could not find these transcribed anywhere so I just transcribed the lyrics. (How you know the band is truely Indie? When you have to transcribe the lyrics yourself.)

The Superbowl ads were so-so. A few chuckles, but nothing that knocked me off my ass. If you missed them, you can see them here:

The one shock, is I expected the G.I. Joe ad to be cringe worthy, but it actually looks good. 30 seconds does not make a movie, though, and I'm still not expecting much when it comes to the big screen.
