Schnappi down by 13 to 36

Another week and another huge slip, I wouldn’t be surprised if Schnappi is out of the charts completely in a few weeks. Schnappi is down to 36, although I have noticed another related song called “Ein Lama In Yokohama” has made it onto the charts, however I will not be following the progress of that one.

Samuel’s Musician Of The Week

This weeks award goes to Merle Haggard and the feature song for the week is “The Fighting Side Of Me”

I hear people talkin’ bad
About the way they have to live here, in this country
Harpin’ on the wars we fight
An’ gripin’ ’bout the way things oughta be

An’ I don’t mind ’em switchin’ sides an’
Standin’ up for things they believe in
But when they’re runnin’ down our country, man
They’re walkin’ on the fightin’ side of me

They’re, walkin’ on the fightin’ side of me
Runnin’ down the our of life
Our fightin’ men have fought and died to keep

If you don’t love it, leave it
Let this song that I’m singin’ be a warnin’
When you’re runnin’ down our country horse
You’re walkin’ on the fightin’ side of me

I read about some squirrely guy
Who claims, that he just don’t believe in fightin’
And I wonder just how long
The rest of us can count on bein’ free

They love our milk an’ honey
But they preach about some other way, of livin’
And when they’re runnin’ down our country, man
They’re walkin’ on the fightin’ side of me

They’re, walkin’ on the fightin’ side of me
Runnin’ down our way of life
Our fightin’ men have fought and died to keep

If you don’t love it, leave it
Let this song that I’m singin’ be a warnin’
When you’re runnin’ our my country, man
You’re walkin’ on the fightin’ side of me

You’re, walkin’ on the fightin’ side of me
Runnin’ down our way of life
Our fightin’ men have fought and died to keep

If you don’t love it, leave it
Let this song that I’m singin’ be a warnin’
When you’re runnin’ down our country horse
You’re walkin’ on the fightin’ side of me

Some Good Quotes

This one was from a public servant trying to intimidate a lawyer on the television show “Judge John Deed“, the quote isn’t exact, but it is close enough:
Public Servant: “I’m a public servant, we don’t learn from our mistakes, we live in the present!”

Another quote, which was the “Quote Of The Day” on Google’s Personalised Homepage (sourced from http://www.quotationspage.com/qotd.html) was by Hesketh Pearson who said “Misquotation is, in fact, the pride and privilege of the learned. A widely- read man never quotes accurately, for the rather obvious reason that he has read too widely.”

And to all the people declaring that I am not “normal”, Ellen Goodman has some words of wisdom for you:
“Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for – in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.”
