Happy Monday and to those in The United States, Happy Independence Day! we also salute Canada who just celebrated their day on Friday, July 1st. It’s all about patriotism so let’s Mambo like crazy in our own state — the state of insanity. Mwuaaaah! Woo hoo, whoo hoo, woo hoo!

01. Two of BDI’s mottos are “Share the love and spread the insanity” and “We don’t suffer from insanity, we enjoy every moment of it.” Based on those thoughts, what song or songs would you recommend to be BDI’s anthem?

Anything by Beck, since most of it is stream of consciousness/word association, kind of. Case in point:

In the time of chimpanzees I was a monkey
butane in my veins so I’m out to cut the junkie
with the plastic eyeballs
spray paint the vegetables
dog food stalls with the beefcake pantyhose
kill the headlights and put it in neutral
stock car flamin’ with a loser and the cruise control
baby’s in Reno with the vitamin D
got a couple of couches sleep on the love seat
someone keeps sayin’ I’m insane to complain about
a shotgun wedding and a stain on my shirt
don’t believe everything that you breathe
you get a parking violation and a maggot on your sleeve
so shave your face with some mace in the dark
savin’ all your food stamps and burnin’ down the trailer park
(yo cut it)
Soy un perdedor I’m a loser baby so why don’t you kill me?
(double-barrel buckshot)
Soy un perdedor i’m a loser baby,so why don’t you kill me?
Forces of evil in a bozo nightmare
banned all the music with a phony gas chamber
‘cuz one’s got a weasel and the other’s got a flag
one’s got on the pole shove the other in a bag
with the rerun shows and the cocaine nose job
the daytime crap with the folksinger slop
he hung himself with a guitar string
slap the turkey neck and it’s hangin’ on a pigeon wing
you can’t write if you can’t relate
trade the cash for the beef for the body for the hate
and my time is a piece of wax
fallin’ on a termite who’s chokin’ on the splinters
Soy un perdedor I’m a loser baby so why don’t you kill me?
(get crazy with the cheeze whiz)
Soy un perdedor I’m a loser baby so why don’t you kill me?
(drive-by body pierce)
(yo bring it on down)
soooooooyy….
(I’m a driver I’m a winner things are gonna change I can feel it)
Soy un perdedor I’m a loser baby so why don’t you kill me?
(I can’t believe you)
Soy un perdedor I’m a loser baby so why don’t you kill me?
Soy un perdedor I’m a loser baby so why don’t you kill me?
[repeat]
(Sprechen sie Deutches, baby)
Soy un perdedor I’m a loser baby so why don’t you kill me?
(Know what I’m sayin’?)
