"This Charming Man"
"Hand In Glove"
"I Don't Owe You Anything"
"Oscillate Wildly"
"London"

You left / Your girlfriend on the platform
With this really ragged notion that you'll return
But she knows / That when he goes /
He really goes

RICH RODRIGUEZ

Utah Michigan Football

"What She Said"

How come someone hasn't noticed / That I'm dead
And decided to bury me? / God knows I'm ready

"Pretty Girls Make Graves"
"Nowhere Fast"
"The Queen Is Dead"
"The Boy with the Thorn in His Side"
"Cemetery Gates"

I left the South
I travelled North
I got confused - I killed a horse
I can't help the way that I feel

"I Started Something I Couldn't Finish"
"Death at One's Elbow"

Young bones groan
And the rocks below say :
"Throw your skinny body down, son !"

"Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me"
"William, It Was Really Nothing"
"Sweet and Tender Hooligan"
"Sheila Take A Bow"

Throw your homework onto the fire /
Come out and find the one you love

"Asleep"

LOCAL MEDIA

 lolfreep

"Barbarism Begins At Home"
"Miserable Lie"
"Bigmouth Strikes Again"

But still I'd rather be famous / than righteous or holy

So, if there's something you'd like to try /
If there's something you'd like to try /
ASK ME - I WON'T SAY "NO" - HOW COULD I ?

I've seen this happen in other people's lives / and now it's happening in mine

It makes none.

"Suffer Little Children"
"Unhappy Birthday"
"Still Ill"
"Rubber Ring"

The passing of time / leaves empty lives
waiting to be filled

"Girl Afraid"
"This Night Has Opened My Eyes"
"I Know It's Over"

Hang the DJ, Hang the DJ, Hang the DJ

"Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want"

NOBODY

I just might walk home alone / But my faith in love is still devout

Brian completely lost his mind.

Ok, I'll go back to hitting refresh every 5 seconds waiting for the next post and trying to figure out the following pattern of 502, 502, 504, 502, 503,... and what it means

I am a huge Smiths fan and a huge UM football fan. But Brian's encyclopedic knowledge of both so surpasses my pocket dictionaryic knowledge that it makes me wonder about what things I know about to an equivalently greater degree than he does. Here's what I've come up with so far:

  • Poodles

That is all.

Not to pretend that my knowledge of the Smiths rivals Brian's, but how about moving "Sweet and Tender Hooligan" to Michael Rosenberg?

"He was a sweet and tender hooligan, hooligan
And he said that he'd never, never do it again
And of course he won't (oh, not until the next time)"

The Fans

There's gonna be some trouble
A whole house will need re-building
And everyone I love in the house
Will recline on an analyst's couch quite soon

Rich Rodriguez

Tell all of my friends
I don't have too many
Just some rain-coated lovers'
puny brothers

(from Now My Heart is Full)

Dave Brandon

rush to danger, wind up nowhere

(from Now My Heart is Full)

Brady Hoke

the more you ignore me, the closer I get

Prior to discovering this blog, I assumed I was the only person who occupied the union of the sets "Smith lovers", "College football fans", "USMNT fans" and "engineers".

No more. Yey for Brian.
