I heard this at the grocery store last night:



Same LP as We Built This City (I believe).

I found to my dismay that it was kind of catchy in a cheesy 80's way. I also might just have been nostalgic for the simpler times of 1986.
Nice.

I have a remote warning system in place where I get text alerts whenever someone mentions "hoopla", "Marconi" or "mamba."

And don't forget the mamba is a snake, not a dance. The radio plays a snake! Total subversion.

But what about this mamba thing? Most people think it's a dance. But it's not. The mamba is the most deadly type of snake. Ever. Seriously. I'm not making this shit up. The mamba is a snake. So perhaps Starship fucked up and meant to say "mambo." But come now... "Mamba" could not have been a mistake. So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? Clearly, "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. The marconi. The device. The radio plays a deadly snake. Listen to it. We built this city. The snake -- the mamba -- is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to squeeze the life out of the police. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism that is encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

Or they meant mambo and are referring to radio, rock n roll, and dancing. Occam's razor is ready to slit your throat on this.

Wow I'd never thought of it like that.

Who hurt you?

Seriously, I can't stop laughing. I feel like I'm in the Chuckles the Clown episode of Mary Tyler Moore. I have a fucking meeting in five minutes and I'm going to look like a crazy persom.
