What does it mean?

.....Nothing. That's what.

What am I talking about?

Today is 07/07/07, of course.

What did you think I was talking about?

I'm not into reading into dates and all that Nostradamus, false prophecy crapola.

Today's date is an interesting coincidence, and nothing more than that. After all, it's just another day....

(Now I'm thinking of that Oingo Boingo song [lyrics below] from one of my favorite CD's)
{ok, ok, ok, I had the cassette tape long before CD's became popular... so sue me!}

and my only niece happens to turn 12 today. Happy Birthday, J!

Just Another Day

by
Oingo Boingo
from "Dead Man's Party" (c) 1985 MCA Records

(There's life underground)

I feel it all around / I feel it in my bones
My life is on the line / When I'm away from home
When I step out the door / The jungle is alive
I do not trust my ears / I don't believe my eyes
I will not fall in love / I cannot risk the bet
Cause hearts are fragile toys / so easy to forget

It's just another day / There's murder in the air
It drags me when I walk / I smell it everywhere
It's just another day / Where people cling to light
To drive away the fear / That comes with every night

CHORUS
It's just another . . . . . . . It's just another day
It's just another . . . . . . . It's just another day . . .

It's just another day--When people wake from dreams
With voices in their ears--That will not go away

I had a dream last night / The world was set on fire
And everywhere I ran / There wasn't any water
The temperature increased / The sky was crimson red
The clouds turned into smoke / And everyone was dead
(but) There's a smile on my face . . . For everyone
There's a golden coin . . . That reflects the sun
There's a lonely place . . . That's always cold
There's a place in the stars . . . For when you get old

There's razors in my bed / That come out late at night
They always disappear / Before the morning light
I'm dreaming again / Of life underground
It doesn't ever move / It doesn't make a sound
And just when I think--That things are in their place
The heavens are secure--The whole thing explodes in my face

CHORUS

Wow Green, This is a whole new side of you I'm seeing. Oingo Boingo? Really?

They were definitely underrated lyricists.

Oingo Boingo was an excellent band. It's a shame they broke up.

But Danny Elfman's career hasn't suffered for it at all.


Dead Man's Party has always been one of my favorites. I still play it loud, esp. when I'm in the car.
