Out of the Blue

I'm going to have to go on a hunt today to track down a noise in my office which has either just begun, or at least just become noticeable to the point of annoyance. It's a fairly high-pitched whine coming from my PC, so I assume it's a cooling fan, and hopefully a little compressed air will take care of it, though it's always possible something will need replacing. I keep thinking this entire years-old machine will need replacing one of these days, but it keeps trucking along like the Terminator, and every time I think it's developed some fatal issue, I find a cure just as soon. Maybe this time it's terminal just because I'm assuming it isn't, and the fates just love to mess with assumptions. We shall see.

Thank you - it's so rare to get a good song stuck in my head.


You are most welcome. My favorite version is by The Cramps - I still have a mental image of them performing it at the Reading Festival.

Main act of the night, 20,000 fans. Lux Interior crooning the lyrics, sporting a pair of small black underpants and mascara, and completely covered/dyed in red wine. Poison Ivy picking out the melody on a Rickenbacker. Giant pit, bodies all over.

Classic Rock n Roll, baby. They don't make it like that anymore.
