Bingo, Bango, Bongo, and Irving
This weekend (here in Louisville, KY) there's a Beatles festival down at the Riverfront. I've been toying around with the idea of going to it, basically taking a page out of Jay's playbook. Jay spends many weekends going to all sorts of festivals. As a matter of fact, just last week he spent an entire afternoon trying to win a Confederate flag by dunking the clansman in the dunk tank. I spend most of my weekends drooling on myself in front of the television set. So maybe, just maybe I'll venture out of the crib this weekend and see what's going on in the world.
Growing up the Beatles were not one of my influences. I was more into bands like the Mosquitoes and the Monkees. Too me the Beatles just seemed really uninspiring and unoriginal unlike Bingo, Bongo, Bango and Irving who undeniably make up the greatest rock band of all time, The Mosquitoes. Now those cats could rock! My favorite song by them is, "He's a loser" If you click on the link you can listen to it over and over, for free.
Still, even though I don't really care for the Beatles music I'm kind of hoping I can hunt down some crystal blue persuasion at this festival, if you know what I mean. Back in the 60's you could get all sorts of fun stuff at concerts that would keep a person like me entertained for hours. But with my luck all they'll have at this Beatles festival are funnel cakes, overpriced beer and rejects from the 60's who still dress in tie dye and want world peace. Fucking idiots!
The more I think about it the better off I'll be staying at home this weekend. I'm sure there's going to be at least 15 Law and Order marathons on TV. Let's see... Dirty rotten hippies, 90 degree temperatures, and terrible music, or Lenny Briscoe and a nice air conditioned apartment with a bottle of Vodka? It's a tough decision folks. I'm going to need at least two days to think about it. World peace...
