Fiesta, forever!



On my way out of the BART tunnel this morning, a street kid with the loveliest voice was singing this beautiful song:

"Hey, hey, what do you say?
I fucked your mother today,
and I don't really care!
Hey, hey, what do you say?
I killed your baby today,
and I don't really care!"

I had mixed feelings about the whole thing, which is why I'm going to talk about Fiestaware! If I ever get married, can this be my pattern? I don't know how that kind of stuff works, but I do know that I love Fiestaware and I'd like to see some of it in my future.

That's a Metallica song from the Garage Days EP I think. Not a great song but popular by kids who like to sing stuff about killing things. Nice fiestaware!

I'm with you on the Fiestaware thing. If I ever "register" somewhere a set of that is going to be on the list. My parents have a whole cupboard full and I'm jealous.

Hmmm...

I see Artaud's 'The Theatre and Its Double' over there on your 'Books I'm Reading' section...

Are you really reading Artaud? Or are you just trying to shatter the false reality that shrouds our perceptions?

I guess it's really a 'Books in my Library' list... That makes me feel safe again (Inside my cocoon of self-deception)

dearest squid h., you are nearing the truth. just because i have a book doesn't mean i've read it. i may have tried to read it. maybe.

My Dear Polly,
Here are the lyrics for the Misfit's song, Last Caress, for shits and giggles! Damnit, I miss you!

I got something to say
I killed your baby today
And it doesnt matter much to me
As long as its dead

Well I got something to say
I raped your mother today
And it doesnt matter much to me
As long as she spread

Sweet lovely death
I am waiting for your breath
Come sweet death, one last caress

Sweet lovely death
I am waiting for your breath
Come sweet death, one last caress

Well, I got something to say
I killed your baby today
And it doesnt matter much to me
As long as its dead

Sweet lovely death
I am waiting for your breath
Come sweet death
One last caress

One last caress, sweet death
One last caress, sweet death

p.s. Papa M's version is quite lovely! I swear!

I too love fiesta ware and have been fortunate enough to have been gifted all of the Sweet's fiesta ware about a week ago. It isn't a complete collection, but enough pieces to get me started. I'm in love with the colors.
