How shall we celebrate?

I'm listening to "The Police: LIVE", but to be honest, I'm more of a Stuart Copeland fan. However, if not for Sting's outrageously good looks and charisma, Stuart might never have been discovered! So, happy birthday Sting.

I dunno, but there's this big, inflatable doll named Sally giving me the big eye.

He irritates me incredibly. His smugness, his squeaky voice, his weird wife...

Eucch, I'm amazed there's anyone who doesn't know, the way he goes on and on about his tantric sex with her. It's the very tired, sore Trudie Styler.

He goes on and on about tantric sex with his wife? Huh. The things you learn on babble. I guess I don't pay a lot of attention to Sting. Or, actually, celebrity gossip in general, I guess.

Nice for them, though. At least they're compatible.

Happy b-day, you stubborn bastard. Thanks for the tunes, though. They're some of my all-time faves (the Police ones, anyway).

Notwithstanding his atrocious personality, imagine Bono dipped in even more earnestness, I still love The Police.

Well he was quoted about that one time. But later some reporter asked "Can you really have sex for four hours?" To which he replied, "Well, yeah, but that includes three and three-quarters hours of dinner, a movie, and begging." Which kind of redeemed him, to my way of thinking.

Yeah, but as undignified things go, it's one of the best.

The last time I liked Sting was when he sang lead for the Police. I can still remember that first corny video they did with the teacher skit "Don't stand so close."

These appear to download as "winzip" files from a site that says they are mp3's, but
I found a page that has five Sting songs:


1. Brand New Day - Mag6287 - Sting - Karaoke - Sting - Karaoke

2. Janet - Sting Sample

3. Sting - A Thousand Years (Rename to Sit)

4. Sting - Brand New Day

5. Sting - Desert Rose

mp3mtv.com

I got a couple of popups and who knows what sort of system jamming spyware-adware loaded onto my hard drive as a reward for these paltry spoils.

Heph, Doc found a site that still carries KaZaA Lite (without the pop-up ads) for free. I don't remember the URL because it's been a few months since I downloaded it from there. But DrC might remember.

Paging DrConway!

The most fun you can have without laughing!

(Although laughing during sex can be fun too. )

I don't want to be too vulgar (despite my current status as a rabid phallophile), but if you can use your collective imagination, I can't personally recommend laughing during sex because... well, when I laugh, something that should be *in* pops *out*...

Ha! Well, this is true. (However, you're assuming that when I say laughing during sex, I mean laughing during intercourse... ) In any case, all I meant is that the occasional giggle in bed can be kind of fun. Well, as long as you're careful about what you giggle at.

I'll celebrate Sting's birthday by listening to Allen Clapp's tune "Why Sting is Such an Idiot."

Or, maybe listen to his stalker song and dream about the person you most want to stalk.

Or maybe not.

K'pla! qoSlIj DatIvjaj to Sting, whose real name is Gordon Sumner, and yep, he's married and apparently has five kids (obviously he and his wife have many good times).

It's true, he's an arrogant pompous artiste type. But some of his music, especially early Police era, is pretty good--and he did a lot of work promoting Amnsety International. He is a shitty actor though. Dune almost made me barf.

But then, he also did backing vocal for Mark Knopfler on the Dire Straits tune Money for Nuthin.

Let's be fair, Klingy... "Dune" make me near-vomit for several different reasons. Mr. Sumner can't be held responsible for all of them...
