“With a purposeful grimace and a terrible sound
He pulls the spitting high tension wires down
Helpless people on a subway train
Scream bug-eyed as he looks in on them
He picks up a bus and he throws it back down
As he wades through the buildings toward the center of town…”
– “Godzilla,” Blue Oyster Cult

    Maybe these oysters can swallow up those invading clams in Lake George?

  2. james says

    old white male rock guitars are fucking boring

  3. Mike H says

    Point taken, James – though I find Joe Bonamassa, a relative whippersnapper, even more boring than the old guys!

  4. Weird Hal says

    But how do you feel about the guitarists, not just the guitars?
    (and how can you tell that the guitars are male?)

  5. james says

    Wierd H

    It’s a metonym, look it up smart guy

  6. mutant says

    @james a metronome?

  7. james says

    Based on the time feel of an overwhelming majority of rock guitarists, I’d guess no.

  8. Weird Hal says

    Nah, it really doesn’t work. Nice try though
