  4:01pm GP:

Birthday greetings to you!

Woooo! Michael Hearst!
  4:06pm Peter K.:

I want to hear a song about Sarah Palin's kid and her Louis Vuitton purse
  4:15pm G. E. Schwartz:

The Palin Prank....set it to tune!
  4:26pm Webhamster Henry:

Your project is very like Ice Cream Headache... which didn't come off. But some nice Ice Cream songs were written by me and others!
  4:29pm stingy d:

i reccomend "don mattingly" by dan deacon for ice cream song fans
  4:30pm Doug in DC:

I found a Mr. Softee graveyard in Richmond, VA once. A whole fenced-off parking lot full of rusted-out ice cream trucks.
  4:33pm Cecile:

Please contact the Ice Cream trucks in Minneapolis.

The only thing they ever play is "Turkey in the Straw"
  4:33pm stingy d:

we are the monsters of the original mr softee ice cream trucks!
  4:35pm Webhamster Henry:

Here's an NPR story with some of Ice Cream Headache's Songs:

The Gamelany "Mr. Softy" by Nina Katchadourian should be someone's bed music!
  4:35pm stingy d:

your exaggeration perpetration levels are at exaggerating full speed
why must i answer to you evil monsters?
  4:38pm Cecile:

We commenters just mainly deal in obscure weirdness, in-jokes, and shout-outs to absent members.
  4:39pm Sean Daily:

Or we just go "Woo hoo!" and otherwise make nuisances of ourselves.
  4:41pm Plinky:

this dude plays really short songs. or are they more sketches.. ditties?
  4:41pm AnAnonymousParty:

Some of these songs could be haikus with a little planning.

  4:49pm paulthepostman:

  4:49pm Cecile:

happy anniversary of your natal day, swami.
  4:50pm Cecile:

"hooch" "liquor" "Estonian marching nectar"
It, and egg white make up a good syllabub.
  4:51pm Cecile:

shoe repair guys rule!
Mine are nice.
  4:56pm Sean Daily:

Grog is anything that makes a pirate go "Arrrr!" Of course, gold, women, a cat, underwear, rain, oxygen and other pirates also make pirates go "Arrrr!", so by that definition...
  4:56pm GP:

Chupacabra song is now my favorite

Booty and wenches without inhibitions,
Ukrainian freghters stuffed fat with munitions,
Casual-kill Fridays and big bling earrings,
These are a pirate dude's favorite things...
