| August 27, 2012

No frills, just votes. And song.

This is the end
Beautiful friend
This is the end
My only friend, the end
Of our elaborate plans, the end
Of everything that stands, the end
No safety or surprise, the end
I’ll never look into your eyes…again

    NHSparky Alert: based on your comment a few days ago, you might wanna pass on reading this one.

    Well, that damn drunken, inhalant-huffing jerk of an elf showed up with his bow & arrow – again – this time mumbling something that sounded like “Elrond’s sending me to rehab” and that this was probably the last time he’d be by for a while. But he was still pointing that damned arrow at my . . . well, at a very important part of my anatomy. And he was obviously hung over again, and his hands were shaking like hell – so I really didn’t want to excite him and have him release any arrows by accident.

    He wanted to play muse one last time, and chose this one.

    And, frankly, this one IMO turned out too good a parody to forego. So, sorry, Peter G. (and NHSparky) – I’m tapping your excellent work from “So” once again.

    With apologies, based on “Red Rain” and as it would be sung by Dildo-man himself:

    Tall Tales

    Tall tales are coming out
    Tall tales
    Tall tales are pouring out
    Pouring out, out of my mouth

    I am standing there in Afghanistan – in my dreams
    (Lies such as this make real Afghan vets want to scream)
    It’s all pure BS, I never set one foot there
    (Or in Iraq, just Kuwait) but now those

    Tall tales are coming out
    Tall tales
    Tall tales are pouring out
    Pouring out, out of my mouth

    Well I’ve lied my ass off in a sheltered place – CNN
    Came on TV, acted like I’d been Born Again
    I’ve seen no combat but yes I have felt some pain
    Self-inflicted pain
    I sliced my own hand and I stayed behind

    Tall tales are coming out
    Tall tales
    Tall tales are pouring out
    Pouring out, out of my mouth

    Oh yeah
    Laying it on now, so much thicker now
    I’m lying again and again
    Just let my BS “teach” you
    Let my lies tell you what’s “real”
    I lie to you, pure bald-faced lies
    ‘Cause I think you’re all fools

    Tall tales are coming out
    Tall tales
    Tall tales are pouring out
    Pouring out, out of my mouth

    But they won’t listen any more
    I’m in denial
    It’s so hard to keep track of my lies

    Tall tales are coming out
    Tall tales are pouring out
    Pouring out, out of my mouth

    They see it!
    Tall tales are coming out
    Tall tales are pouring out
    Pouring out, out of my mouth

    I am full of it!
    Tall tales coming out
    Tall tales are coming out
    Pouring out, out of my mouth

    They’re onto me!
    Tall tales coming out
    Tall tales coming out
    Tall tales coming out
    Tall tales coming out
    All from me, yes from fake me

    Dildo me
    Dildo me
    Tall tales

    Vote for Dildo!

    Awesome

    As much as Sharky is a greasy-skinned mouth-breathing inhabitant of the shallow end of the gene pool, I have to vote for Dilberto.

    Dilberto’s sin is his going on the news as a major representative of veterans. He did lasting damage with that and he’s the type that the MSM NEED to reinforce their “Damaged goods” meme for veterans.

    So eff him.

  4. NHSparky says:

    Well, if you were going to descecrate what is IMHO Peter Gabriel’s best song, at least you did a hell of a job on it, Hondo.

    And the fact that you’re piling on Dildoberto makes it that much better.

    Kudos.

  5. Hondo says:

    Not sure I’d put it as his all-time best, NHSparky – but it’s definitely in my top 5. “Come Talk to Me” and “In Your Eyes” IMO give it a run for it’s money – and “Secret World” is damned close behind those, if not equal – and maybe a few others also. I’d really hate to have to pick 1 of those as “best”. He’s written some truly excellent stuff.

    Anyway, thanks for the complement. As soon as I mentally heard the line “I am standing there in Afghanistan – in my dreams” I was hooked and knew had to finish this one. Glad others seem to have liked it too.

    And Dildo-man deserves every line.

    GUNNY DRIVEWAY lurks in the shadows!

  7. NHSparky says:

    Hondo–I saw him at The Pond in Anaheim about 6-7 years ago. Old stuff, (at the time) new stuff, it was all good, but when he kicked into “Red Rain”, you knew it was something special. At the end of that live performance, I was kinda just going, “Wow.”

    In Your Eyes was kind of overplayed, IMO. I think some of the more overlooked Gabriel includes, “The Book of Love”, “Blood of Eden”, and of course, “Solisbury Hill.”

  8. LebbenB says:

    I, too, think “In Your Eyes” is perhaps Gabriel’s best. Hell, “So” was one of my favorite CDs from the 80s. All killer, no filler asbTom Petty is wont to say.

  9. Ex-PH2 says:

    I still have to go with Disgusting Diliberto. If I ever see him some place where they serve liquor, I’ll make sure I spit in any drink he’s served.

  10. Hondo says:

    A final blast-from-the-past – for any fence-sitters voting at the last minute:

    The Dildo-Man

    Who can be a f-up, lie to me and you
    Makes a new career from nothing but a tale or two
    The Dildo-Man, oh the Dildo-Man can
    The Dildo-Man can ’cause he mixes truth with lies ’cause – hey – the money’s real good

    Who can take his weapon, point it at a friend
    Get busted by his CO ‘stead of landing in the pen
    The Dildo-Man, oh the Dildo-Man can
    The Dildo-Man can ’cause he mixes truth with lies ’cause – hey – the money’s real good

    The Dildo-Man’s fake, but everything he says sounds so good you’re not suspicious
    Now talk about your sons-of-bitches, he even used to wash the dishes

    He lies like no tomorrow and could f-up a wet dream
    Lies about deploying ’til it makes you want to scream
    The Dildo-Man, oh the Dildo-Man can
    The Dildo-Man can ’cause he mixes truth with lies ’cause – hey – the money’s real good
    The Dildo-Man can ’cause he mixes truth with lies ’cause – hey – the money’s real good
    The Dildo-Man can ’cause he mixes truth with lies ’cause – hey – the money’s real good

    Forget Pedro – vote for Dildo!

    Sammy Davis Jr. os cryin’ right about now…..

    How about a rendition to his “Disco Lifestyle” entitled “Dildo Lifestyle”!!

  12. Smokey Behr says:

    Diliberto made his Douchebaggery public in the MSM, which IMO, rockets him to the top.

  13. SGTKane says:

    You’ll never believe who I saw over on Cracked today.

    Our good buddy Sharky…
