My gramma turned 91 last week. At her birthday party, someone found her stash of old records, which I proceeded to pillage. One odd find was Led Zepplin's Houses of the Holy. I can't imagine my gramma and Jimmy Page understanding each other, so its inclusion in her LP collection is inexplicable. I also found this:
Music To Break A Lease. Included in the track listing are foot-stomping numbers like You Are My Sunshine, Oh You Beautiful Doll, Let Me Call You Sweetheart, and The Beer Barrel Polka. Apprently it didn't take much more than a whisper to break a lease in the fifties. Back at my old apartment, the loud bitches upstairs wouldn't think twice about aerobicizing in clogs. But I do remember K-Mack getting instuctions from our downstairs neighbor about the proper method for effective tip-toeing. "Toe to heel, toe to heel, toe to heel." So maybe things haven't changed much after all.

Ah, but how much more will your own grandchildren wonder at you when they see this online diary of Grandpa's containing apes having oral sex? :P

Hmmm, that is a good point. I wonder what's on my gramma's blog?

Also to consider, maybe gramma had decided, at the time of the album's release, to live a little since she was gettin' old. Maybe she smoked a bit of weed, watched "The Wall" and partied with hippies. Heck, maybe she WAS a hippy. *flashes peace sign*
Or maybe she just thought she was buying a gospel record. :)

It is hard to judge someone by his or her audio and visual preferances.I would never think of you as a fan of crocodile Dundee....but you must be you own the movie.

Just like if someone were to own Deuce Bigelow on DVD. I might think that was weird.

Stacy- ummm, as I recall, I purchased the Blessid Union of Souls CD under duress while you were standing next to me telling me how much you wanted to buy it & totally thought I should buy it, too. I think you opened the wrapper & popped it into your CD player before the ink on my check even dried.

During my junior year of college, I lived in the attic apartment of this big house. The guys downstairs told us that the previous year, a girl was doing aerobics and fell through the floor. You could see where their ceiling had been fixed and in our apartment, the floor was a little lower where she had fallen through. The weird thing is that she was doing aerobics between the kitchen & living room...I hope she got her deposit back.

You're Granma sounds like she kicks ass-Led Zepplin AND the BeerBarrel Polka...maybe the Zepplin album was an impulse buy at a concert in which she met Jimmy Page? It could be hereditary...

According to Mel, I see him at the Bee's from time to time; the lady who moved into our apartment after us was unbearable. He moved out, she must not have taken his advice on tip toeing, or maybe she had a dehumidifier. Either way...she was just noisy.
