Cheese in all its forms

A song has been going through my head and it's driving me nuts. Especially frustrating is when you only know one little line:

"Anywhere I go, there's always something to remind me - of another place in time..."
Do you recognize it? It's the song from the Geico caveman commercial when he's in the airport on the moving sidewalk.

I did some research and found out it's by a Swedish duo called Royksopp, and the song is called "Remind Me."

So I downloaded it from iTunes. I don't know, it's a little cheesy but there's something catchy about it. It is one of those songs that makes me want to hop a plane and fly to an island somewhere.

Whenever I travel, I burn a CD to listen to on the way. I throw most of them away after the trip, but this will be a song I'll include on my next travel CD. I'll also include the new song by Kenny Chesney, "Beer in Mexico"... since my next trip of consequence is Playa del Carmen.

We saw Wild Hogs over the weekend. Anyone seen it yet? It's a fun movie, and I thought of an analogy that fits it perfectly... Wild Hogs is to bikers... what City Slickers is to cowboys. The story line is almost identical.

It was a predictable movie, a little cheesy, but that didn't ruin it for me. The star of the show turns out to be William H. Macy. It reignited my desire to get a Harley. (or some kind of nice bike)

3 out of 5 stars.

What's with cheese?*

I've been on a fast-food kick lately (which I need to break) and noticed that when you order a slice of cheese on something they charge you 40 cents. But, if you order a sandwich that usually comes with cheese and tell them to hold the cheese, they don't give you a rebate.

Bastards. Fast food is the only business where you get screwed either way you go. I think I'll just stick the unwanted cheese to the outside of the drive-thru window next time. I paid for it, I can do what I want.




*this question makes me feel like Jerry Seinfeld.

That song got stuck in my wife's head. She was trying to explain it to me. I had no idea what she was talking about. Now I know.

Sorry to read about your burger mishap, below. But I refuse to feel sorry for anybody who has access to Hardee's.

I listened to the song, but didn't recognize it from the commercial. I guess I haven't seen it ten million times, like some other commercials.

"Wild Hogs" was mediocre, at best, for me. But, it isn't marketed for chicks, that's for sure.

Mmmmm.... plastic cheese. What is the world coming to when we have plastic cheese for every meal?

That's a great song. A friend of mine can't watch TV without closed captioning on (weird habit) and I happened to catch the name and artist while watching -- they introduce the song in the captioning.
