Mind of your Pete

Postby Black Sparrow » Sun Nov 26, 2006 2:00 am

I was told to post a poem or tune to avoid heckling in the Introductions forum.... but I figure this can go here too. Tell me whatcha think. :kiki:


Mind Of Your Pete
(sung to the beat of "Time of your Life" by Green Day)

Another Sunday and the comic strip is late.
The fans will slit my wrists if I keep at this rate.
Maybe a filler strip of Sticks in Space will do.
Maybe I'll post a little storyline hint too.

My timeline's unpredictable,
It's mostly luck and chance.
I hope they all dig Sluggy Freelance.

I'll stick some sketches in, or call on guys like Clay.
Their stuff is decent, and it covers one more day.
Tattoos of Zoe and Gwynn might make the Sluggites smile.
Plus, give me time to stop and breathe a little while.

This comic's unpredictable...
(bring Emergency Pants...)
I hope they all dig Sluggy Freelance.

(Instrumental)**

My timeline's unpredictable,
It's mostly luck and chance.
I hope they all dig Sluggy Freelance.


**(trippy instrumental with Aylee on a harmonica, Bun-Bun on bass, and Kiki making doot-doot noises as techno-ferrets are known to do.)

That was entertaining. Especially since I know how to play the song on the guitar. Fun!

NgauNgau for President-of-the-Boards!
Also: Nice lyrics, Sparrow.

Somehow, I'm betting that Pete is going to hear about this.

Wow! More of a response than I ever expected!

Thanks, NgauNgau, for immortalizing my lyrics!! :kiki:

I agree, Pete has got to hear this. He'll be singing it for weeks... ;-)

The 'doots' get lost in the instrumental; but that's pretty good Ngau. Certainly worth sharing a Grahammy.
