    He just kinda ruled.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    A linked video that appeared with this one titled, "Chuck Berry Punched Keith Richards in the Face." Didn't click the link since I'm working.

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.

    There's an audio clip out there where Paul McCartney was asked something about the impetus to The Beatles and their sound. McCartney replied, and I'm paraphrasing here, We wanted to sound like Chuck Berry and (forgot the name said), but we just couldn't match that sound, so we made our own. And when you listen The Beatles' cover of Roll Over Beethoven, he wasn't wrong. It's not like they had a horrible cover of it, but they couldn't quite match the sound/feel.

    Still haven't seen Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. It can't be as strange as Auto Focus.

    The cow I grilled tonight. Not entirely sure of the time of death. But it was tasty.
