    The liner notes of Bruce Springsteen's "Racing in the Street" from 'Darkness on the Edge of Town" reads
    "I met her on the strip three years ago in a Camero with this dude from L.A.
    Well, I blew that Camero off my back and I stole that little girl away"

    That always bugged me.

    But it's such a great song, might as well give it a listen.

    As a songwriter myself, I can tell you...

    All rules are off when writing lyrics; you can't go beating Springsteen, Lennon, McCartney, Dillon, Marley, or Guthrie over the head with Strunk and White. :D

    Loved Mitch Hedberg.

    I sat in the front row of the Dallas Improv 3 months before he died. He was so stoned/high/out-of-it... at one point he just stopped talking.. sat there silent (in a silent room) for 45 seconds with a deer in the headlights look on his face.. pulled a piece of paper out of his back pocket and started reading jokes off the piece of paper :cry

    I'd seen him the year before.. same location.. same seat - and he spent 3 minutes teasing me about my bald head - 'twas hilarious.

    From his Wikipedia page...

    "His material depended heavily on wordplay, non sequiturs, paraprosdokians, and object observations." Whew... paraprosdokians! :lol3

    Todd Snider is often compared to Mitch Hedberg. He's been called the 'musical Mitch Hedberg'

    The time Todd Snider met Slash from Guns n Roses.

    Funny as hell.

    Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend.

    Inside of a dog it's too dark to read
