We're gettin tired of hangin around...

I've been told this song was popular in Vietnam, out in the bush. "When the music's over" as in, when you died: Music is your only friend/Until the end.

I've been wondering what songs the troops are listening to now, that have the same emotional resonance this once had for another generation of soldiers.

I hauled this video out of mothballs to prove to my 20-something friend that Carlos Santana was once a beautiful, thin man with lots of hair:

Proof of greatness is when an 'unknown' can nearly steal a movie from the stars!

I recently passed through HOT TOPIC and noticed all the Christopher Walken T-shirts. Apparently, he is particularly popular with the irreverent kids. But I've noticed that most of the kids don't know about his big acting break, so I hereby offer it here:

Love that line, "I'm due back on the planet earth now." Has Christopher Walken been in anything lately that would put him on a t-shirt? About 10 years ago he did some memorable stuff on Saturday Night Live, he seemed to be on the show a lot back then.

Good question as to what the troops are listening to now. I have no clue, but fear it's probably the rap crap that all the kiddies listen to now. I have nothing against rap, I liked it when it first came out, now it seems like it's all recycled clips of other songs, and it all sounds the same to me. I must be getting old.

Rosa, check out the T-shirts. Most seem to be from King of New York.

Walken looks great on a t-shirt!
