"Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he has been robbed. The fact is that most putts don’t drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to be just like people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, and most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is just like an old time rail journey ... delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders, and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling bursts of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride."

.Showbiz Pizza.

Chuck E. Cheese, formerly Showbiz Pizza, was a favorite place for me to go as a kid. My favorite part was the RockaFire Explosion Band, those electronic Creatures that sang on the Showbiz stage. I enjoyed watching the band more than anything- as a child, they blew my mind. I was reading SPIN magazine at the doctor’s office yesterday. In it was an article about a guy who purchased a complete set of the Showbiz Pizza Band. He has the band programmed to do contemporary songs by Usher, Shakira, Britney Spears… so on and so on. I found the videos on You Tube and they are hilarious. Also, a documentary is being made about the guy and his RockaFire Explosion band. We didn’t go to Showbiz Pizza often, but its one of my most vivid childhood memories. Does anyone else remember when it was called Showbiz Pizza? Anyways, here are some of the Videos. They bring on the LOL's. :)

.Shakira- Hips Don't Lie.

.Usher- Love in this Club.
