Shakedown 1979, cool kids never have the time
On a live wire right up off the street
You and I should meet
June bug skipping like a stone

I can't go back to the place this song reminds me of because a highway was put through that whole hillside. It doesn't exist anymore. That's pretty sad

Don't read this. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Now you've started reading this. Don't stop this is so freaky. But if you read this and ignore it then you will have very bad luck put this on 15 songs in 143 minutes. When you're done press the space bar and your crushes name will appear in big letters on the screen this is so creepy cause it really works.

So spread word where it matters - if this would've been known back in 1979 we would've had a head start ... But it's ok - it's not too late :)

People in California can't go out smashing pumpkins these holidays , because we are in a drout/no rain, no water for farms , so, we are producing 30% of what we normally produce in crops and vegetation/g r e e n e e r y
