Friday, 12 July 2013

07:58 – We are living in a temperate rain forest, literally. We had another 1.9 inches (4.8 cm) of rain overnight. I don’t know what our official total is for July-to-date, but according to our rain gauge we’re already over 8 inches (20 cm). That takes us up to about 20 inches (50 cm) in the last six weeks, which would ordinarily be what we’d get in six months. We haven’t had any serious flooding locally, but there has been pretty bad flooding elsewhere in the state.

CNN posted an article on Spotify’s list of the 10 most common mondegreens. Their #1 was Blinded by the Light (wrapped up like a douche), with Jimi Hendrix at #2 (‘scuse me while I kiss this guy). But they didn’t mention the one track with the one line that’s been more mondegreened than any other I can think of: Clapton’s Cocaine, where the original “she don’t lie, she don’t lie, she don’t lie. Cocaine” has been butchered at least a dozen different ways: “she don’t like”, “she don’t mind”, “shoot your line”, “she does lines”, “sheep don’t lie”, “she don’t fly”, “it’s all right”, “shit don’t lie”, and on and on.
