LYRICS

Nice fall day
In L​.​A​.​ County
Sitting watching all the leaves change
Temperature dipping into the low seventies
I dress accordingly

Roll down the window
Put down the top
You know what
Maybe roll it up on second thought
That guy was higher
Than the pension of a state employee

Can't use straws here
No fois gras here
You can't park here
Lots of laws here

Every toilet
Barely flushing
But the sun is shining all the time
Looks like another bill to pay

I love L​.​A​.​
We love it

"Definitely recommend this crystal here.
Oh and this one is our number one seller."
"What's that for? Anxiety?"
"No. Typhus."
"Ah."

Public school graduates
Can barely read
And when they try to park
Well, this is what they see

Sweet regulations
Ain't nothing like 'em nowhere

Beachside
We love it

Mountainside
We love it

Riverside
We...eh...

Fixed streets
We love 'em
We love L​.​A​.​

"Unfortunately I'll have to fail your restaurant.
I found a rat in the kitchen."
"That wasn't a rat, that was my, uh,
emotional support rodent."
"Well, why didn't you say so?"

"​And this right here is a great hemorrhoidal crystal.
Uranus is in retrograde​."

I love L​.​A​.​
​We love it

    Meh. Gimme some EODM.

  • Eddy||

    C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas le death metal.

  • DiegoF||

    Did Remy drive all the way from Arlington in that drop-top in this weather?

  • Remember to keep it all polit||

    Good, except I've never liked Randy Newman, and it's hard to separate hearing his plugged-up voice from this.

  • BigT||

    You must be short.

  • Marty Feldman's Eyes||

    I wanna live in Los Angeles
    not the one in Los Angeles
    not the one in South California
    they got one in South Patagonia
    I wanna live in Los Angeles
    not the one in Los Angeles

    If you pause on the parking signs, You find a few jokes their.

  • Diane Reynolds (Paul.)||

    This happened

    Protesters crowd into downtown Seattle to demand Russia investigation continue
  • John||

    Trump has them protesting the firing of a guy that they spent all of 2017 claiming was a RACIST and who is a SOCON's SOCON. He really does seem to be some kind of a retard wisperer.

  • CDRSchafer||

    How do you tell the protesters from the homeless/drug users? The protesters have professionally printed signs. Other than that they're the same people.

  • Diane Reynolds (Paul.)||

    Nope, the homeless have professionally printed signs as well, provided by SHARE/WHEEL a... *clears throat* privately funded non-profit.

  • The Last American Hero||

    This is a real problem with Seattle Not for Profits. SHARE/WHEEL is supposed to advocate for the homeless. WTF does that have to do with Jeff Sessions or the Russia investigation? It's the same thing with numerous environmental groups that attach themselves to civil rights issues or minority advocacy groups advocating for pro-choice causes (because I guess Latinos are all pro-choice).

    I get that most NFP's want to get their hands on taxpayer dollars, so they like Team Blue. But I seriously question whether they are just Democratic fundraising organizations when they don't stay in their lane. They received a tax exemption to adhere to a specific mission. Since Team Blue doesn't mind a weaponized IRS, maybe Trump should go after these guys for expanding beyond their exempt purpose.

    I noticed this happening over the course of the '90s, sort of alongside "Deep Ecology" and the rise of the Green Party. Various "causes" got consolidated under the vague banner of "Progress," such that being an "Environmentalist" was made to entail also being a "Feminist" and a "Socialist" and "Anti-Racist," however that may be being defined at the moment. Don't concern yourself with those areas where these ideologies come in conflict with each other - the important thing is taking down those who are against "Progress."

    That's how nowadays you can have "Tucker Carlson is openly racist" because he's skeptical of pro-government climate change narratives - you're either on board with "Progress," wherever it needs to be enacted this week, or you are one of the Enemy. You accept the whole package, or you are against the whole package.

  • Cynical Asshole||

    minority advocacy groups advocating for pro-choice causes (because I guess Latinos are all pro-choice).

    That one's particularly ridiculous considering how many Latinos are Catholic.

    Since Team Blue doesn't mind a weaponized IRS, maybe Trump should go after these guys for expanding beyond their exempt purpose.

    If he did that, I think we might run out of popcorn. The salty ham tears will flow like water though.

  • Sonny Bono's Ghost||

    I I wasn't so incensed by any side's militirized use of the IRS, this would sound like a great plan to me.

  • Kefka||

    I just told my cat that it's my emotional support rodent! The beast gave me a confused look then went back to gnawing and licking itself.

  • Juice||

    Ok, I lold when it showed the changing leaves.

  • EscherEnigma||

    Even funnier when you look to the bottom of the page and see the address listed under the "Contact" section.

  • SteveC||

    Dang, wish that moving company were for New Hampshire instead of Texas....
