I'm sure, too.
For the moment, since Mrs V makes more (and has time-in-grade), I'm Mr Mom until we decide it's safe
to put her in a daycare. I was up all night (well, I haven't slept since we brought her home Sunday...)
and spent some of that time working on these videos.
I'm going to read up on kicking my abilities up a notch, and getting some movin' pitchers involved... maybe
even take an online course in videography or something. Perhaps I could make a few bucks in the future,
while doing some Outlaw work on the side.

Muahahahaha.

 Life During Wartime
The Talking Heads, plus it's a great dance tune

Heard of a van that is loaded with weapons
Packed up and ready to go
Heard of some gravesites, out by the highway
A place where nobody knows
The sound of gunfire, off in the distance
I'm getting used to it now
Lived in a brownstone, lived in the ghetto
I've lived all over this town

This ain't no party, this ain't no disco
This ain't no fooling around
No time for dancing, or lovey dovey
I ain't got time for that now

Transmit the message, to the receiver
Hope for an answer some day
I got three passports, couple of visas
Don't even know my real name
High on a hillside, trucks are loading
Everything's ready to roll
I sleep in the daytime, i work in the nightime
I might not ever get home

This ain't no party, this ain't no disco
This ain't no fooling around
This ain't no mudd club, or c. b. g. b.
I ain't got time for that now

Heard about houston? heard about detroit?
Heard about pittsburgh, p. a.?
You oughta know not to stand by the window
Somebody might see you up there
I got some groceries, some peanut butter
To last a couple of days
But i ain't got no speakers
Ain't got no headphones
Ain't got no records to play

Why stay in college? why go to night school?
Gonna be different this time?
Can't write a letter, can't send a postcard
I can't write nothing at all
This ain't no party, this ain't no disco
This ain't no fooling around
I'd love to hold you, i'd like to kiss you
I ain't got no time for that now

Trouble in transit, got through the roadblock
We blended in with the crowd
We got computers, we're tapping phone lines
I know that ain't allowed
We dress like students, we dress like housewives
Or in a suit and a tie
I changed my hairstyle so many times now
Don't know what i look like!
You make me shiver, i feel so tender
We make a pretty good team
Don't get exhausted, i'll do some driving
You ought to get you some sleep
Get you instructions, follow directions
Then you should change your address
Maybe tomorrow, maybe the next day
Whatever you think is best
Burned all my notebooks, what good are notebooks?
They won't help me survive
My chest is aching, burns like a furnace
The burning keeps me alive
Try to stay healthy, physical fitness
Don't want to catch no disease
Try to be careful, don't take no chances
You better watch what you say

The Battle of Evermore

This is Led Zeppelin's interpretation of J.R. Tolkien, and some of the best damn mandolin I've ever heard!

Queen of light took her bow
And then she turned to go,
The prince of peace embraced the gloom
And walked the night alone.
Oh, dance in the dark of night,
Sing to the morn - ing light.
The dark lord rides in force tonight
And time will tell us all.
Oh, throw down your plow and hoe,
Rest not to lock your homes.
Side by side we wait the might
Of the darkest of them all.
I hear the horses' thunder
Down in the valley blow,
I'm waiting for the angels of avalon,
Waiting for the eastern glow.
The apples of the valley hold,
The seas of happiness,
The ground is rich from tender care,
Repay, do not forget, no, no.
Oh,-------dance in the dark of night,
Sing to the morning light.
The apples turn to brown and black, the tyrant's face is red.
Oh the war is common cry, pick up you swords and fly.
The sky is filled with good and bad
That mortals never know.
Oh, well, the night is long, the beads of time pass slow,
Tired eyes on the sunrise, waiting for the eastern glow.
The pain of war cannot exceed
The woe of aftermath,
The drums will shake the castle wall,
The ring wraiths ride in black, ride on.
Sing as you raise your bow,
Shoot straighter than before.
No comfort has the fire at night
That lights the face so cold.
Oh dance in the dark of night,
Sing to the mornin' light.
The magic runes are writ in gold
To bring the balance back, bring it back.
At last the sun is shining, the clouds of blue roll by,
With flames from the dragon of darkness
The sunlight blinds his eyes.

And finally, the Stone's, Street Fightin Man

Ev'rywhere I hear the sound of marching, charging feet, boy
'Cause summer's here and the time is right for fighting in the street, boy
But what can a poor boy do
Except to sing for a rock 'n' roll band
'Cause in sleepy London town
There's just no place for a street fighting man
No

Hey! Think the time is right for a palace revolution
'Cauce where I live the game to play is compromise solution
Well, then what can a poor boy do
Except to sing for a rock 'n' roll band
'Cause in sleepy London town
There's no place for a street fighting man
No

Hey! Said my name is called disturbance
I'll shout and scream, I'll kill the king, I'll rail at all his servants
Well, what can a poor boy do
Except to sing for a rock 'n' roll band
'Cause in sleepy London town
There's no place for a street fighting man
No

No real favorite here but the only one that comes to mind is Steve Earle's "Cooperhead Road".  :ph34r:
Oh, that and maybe the theme from "Firefly"

I just have a problem with Steve Earle because of his rather vocal anti-gun stance from years back, right around the time "Copperhead Road" came out.  I began to ignore him at that point.

They can try to regulate the sky, but no one has to hand it over.

OK, what with perfectly good and interesting threads like "What if? ..." rapidly devolving into woe-is-me defeatism festivals, I figure it is time for some more good ol' songs of Rebellion and Resistance.

Now here's a Country favorite of mine: 

A COUNTRY BOY CAN SURVIVE

By Hank Williams Jr.

Hear it and watch the cool ass music video here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4s0nzsU1Wg

The preacher man says it's the end of time

And the Mississippi River she's a goin' dry

The interest is up and the Stock Markets down

And you only get mugged

If you go downtown



I live back in the woods, you see

My woman and the kids, and the dogs and me

I got a shotgun rifle and a 4-wheel drive

And a country boy can survive

Country folks can survive



I can plow a field all day long

I can catch catfish from dusk till dawn

We make our own whiskey and our own smoke too

Ain't too many things these ole boys can't do

We grow good ole tomatoes and homemade wine

And a country boy can survive

Country folks can survive



Because you can't starve us out

And you cant make us run

Cause when them old boys raisin ole shotgun

And we say grace and we say Ma'am

And if you ain't into that we don't give a damn



We came from the West Virginia coalmines

And the Rocky Mountains and the and the western skies

And we can skin a buck; we can run a trot line

And a country boy can survive

Country folks can survive



I had a good friend in New York City

He never called me by my name, just hillbilly

My grandpa taught me how to live off the land

And his taught him to be a businessman

He used to send me pictures of the Broadway nights

And I'd send him some homemade wine



But he was killed by a man with a switchblade knife

For 43 dollars my friend lost his life

Id love to spit some beechnut in that dudes eyes

And shoot him with my old .45

Cause a country boy can survive

Country folks can survive



Cause you can't starve us out and you can't make us run

Cause when them ol boys boys raisin ole shotgun

And we say grace and we say Ma'am

And if you ain't into that we don't give a damn



We're from North California and south Alabam

And little towns all around this land

And we can skin a buck; we can run a trot line

And a country boy can survive

Country folks can survive

 I have been wrong in my life, no wait, it appears I was mistaken.
I believe the wording on this line is actually :

Cause we're them ole boys raised on "shotgun"

"Shotgun" is an unwritten philosophy wherein each person is Responsible for his/her own actions even IF it requires a "little" outside influence to remind them of that Responsibility.

IE:  A "Shotgun Wedding"

Hmmm, you may be right, though none of the lyrics I found online have it that way, but I did not do an exhaustive search, and even if the ones I looked at don't have it that way, that certainly doesn't make them right - I found several that said "you can't stomp us out" when it is clearly "you can't starve us out."   Interesting take on it.  I wonder how we can verify what the damn lyrics really are.

I would recommend contacting Hank Jr. hisself.

I don't know how to do that but that is what I would try.

And Tomlinson took up the tale and spoke of his good in life.
"O this I have read in a book," he said, "and that was told to me,
"And this I have thought that another man thought of a Prince in Muscovy."
The good souls flocked like homing doves and bade him clear the path,
And Peter twirled the jangling Keys in weariness and wrath.
"Ye have read, ye have heard, ye have thought," he said, "and the tale is yet to run:
"By the worth of the body that once ye had, give answer—what ha' ye done?"
