Lessee . . .

Once I was swimmin' 'cross Turtle Creek,
Man, those snappers all around my feet . . .
Sure was hard swimmin' 'cross that thing,
With both hands holdin' my ding-a-ling-a-ling!


RIP, Mr. Berry.  A true American original.

RIP Mr.  Berry. As a youngster I saved up pop and beer bottles to get the deposits, saved up enough to buy a ticket to see Chuck for my first concert.

RIP! There might not be Rock n Roll if it weren't for Chuck, or least not as we now know it.
Man’s greatness is so obvious that it can even be deduced from his wretchedness, for what is nature in animals we call wretchedness in man, thus recognizing that, if his nature is today like that of the animals, he must have fallen from some better state which was once his own.
