Walk this way

Walk this way.
--Igor, Young Frankenstein

walk this way, talk this way
walk this way, walk this way
walk this way, walk this way
walk this way, talk this way
just gimme a kiss
like this!
Igor's line, "Walk this way" from the Mel Brook's movie, Young Frankenstein was the inspiration for Aerosmith's 1975 hit Walk This Way. The song was rerecorded in 1986 by Aerosmith and Run-D.M.C. and appeared on their album Raising Hell. And hell seems to be my unintentional theme this week (because everyone knows that the road to hell is paved with good intentions).

This all pretty much fits in my theory that everything is connected in some way to something else. It's kind of like that stupid Kevin Bacon game that was popular a few years back where you tried to name a person or movie and somehow tie it in to Kevin Bacon. I think the game was more popular than Kevin Bacon ever was.

Incidently, the lyrics to Aerosmith's Walk This Way are pretty darned dirty. But you can't really tell that by listening to the song because the words are unintelligible until Steven Tyler screams, "Walk this Way." But trust me it is a nasty song.

But I digress.

I thought about Walk this Way when I was thinking about the stairs in my dream that Mickey claims lead to hell. But I was thinking about Igor saying, "Walk this way," and walking away oddly with Dr. Frankenstein imitating him. It is an ancient joke. Anyway, I was thinking about the stairs because once again Mickey has suggested that I am stuck at the top of the stairs and should proceed. I think when Mickey is not being JC he could also be slithering around trying to get people to eat apples.

It has been one hell of a week and I for one am glad it is almost over.

I'm looking forward to your thoughts on Purgatory next week. I hear they have flourescent lighting there...

I was raised Christian Scientist. Purgatory was more of a Catholic gig. But I'll take your word on the flourescent lighting.

Timmy, you know you want a bite.

Get thee behind me Mickey. On second thought, Get thee in front of me, Mickey.

OK, let's lay this goat thing to rest. Christians needed scape-goats. hehe...this is good already. Goats got horns. Christians associate being horny with sin, thus Satan. Goats lay waste to a plot of land if you let them. Hell is said to be a wasteland. Thus my back forty could be associated with hell.

Bond would have rolled over in his grave (although as of yet he's very much alive, since they haven't killed him off yet) if he knew how many shots it took me to disable that damn snake. I'm sorry, but like I said, the PPK/s was not designed to kill snakes, so sue me.

Looking back, I'm amazed at he profanity hidden in plain sight in rock and roll lyrics. Little Richard...."Good Golly, Miss Molly, sure likes to ball....", is a very good example.

Fainting goats should not be linked to Satan. Any creature that brings me that much amusement must be heavenly.

(And as an aside, when I went looking for this particular video, R commented, "Aren't you sick of fainting goats yet?" No. I can never be sick of fainting goats.)

THE Michael, Thank you great defender of the goat. I think you did okay with the .380. At least you didn't have to throw the pistol at the snake.

K. You are right. You can never get enough of fainting goats.

K. PS. The video was pretty cool. Perhaps Satan makes them faint :)

Tim, nice one.

This is not a musical virus.
