Discovered this great site via Consequences Dictate.
I couldn't pass up the photo puzzle program, especially since 
I have this creepy tree puzzle picture already. A puzzle puzzle?

I suppose I've been spending a bit too much time at the pub since the wife and baby have been out of town.

While beer halls all revel, drunk and disheveled...

South of the river's mouth
migration slopes slowly towards mainland.
There, the salt air
fills the gills of the dead bait in hand.

The deep is in riot, the coastline is quiet
asleep and divided in bands.
While beer halls all revel, drunk and disheveled,
Helplessly wading the diver is down.

And they're chumming the oceans.
The signal is sent,
Recieved and repsonded to.

The water is red, red, red.

We're downed, downed as the hand of God
chokes the driftwood with dead weight and brine.
And spawning the detailed decline
via dorsal cuts, hooks, sink and line.

The anchors have settled, the tanks are full level.
The flag has been raised half-mast on the bow.
And harpoons are loaded, the tanks have been lowered.
The mask's on, the diver is down, now.

And they're chumming the oceans.
The signal is sent
I think he's in trouble.
The water is red, red, red.

Great song, crappy audio. Not sure if they ever recorded a studio version or not.

I take all of the photos that appear on this site unless noted otherwise. 
If you want one you can have it, just mention where you got it when you use it.

Not the Beers of I...

Glad You're Here With Me 
by Papa M
Maybe you'd be better off with another man
for there's a weight that must be relieved
I dread the thought of losing you but I would understand
until that day I'm glad you're here with me

I have friends that may be better for you
friends that have not the fears of I*
it pains me just to think of you leaving
I don't ever want to say goodbye

Lover these powders are compelling
I don't claim that it's the way to be
if I am fucking up there ain't no telling
I'm just glad that you are here with me

This morning they killed the candymaker
three shots to his head from a forty five
I don't want to end up in the paper
or kill a man just to watch him die

I don't mean to judge the man that murders
I don't care to un-sympathize
I am neither victim nor killer
I see myself in both of their eyes

But what drives a man to kill another
and leave his body in the dirt to bleed
ain't he also my brother
ain't you happy you are here with me

*For as long as I've listened to this album, I always thought
he said "not the beers of I". Papa M calls himself Pajo now,
don't get confused when you link to the video. Great cover song by the way.

Now, back to our regularly scheduled Gawking...

14 Votes...

14 votes is roughly 15 more than I expected. 
Thank you for chiming in, the survey will close tonight and
I will have a custom header for tomorrow's "big reveal".

July 5, 2009


I am considering a title change for the blog. The url will remain "moping around" so it will retain the flavor of the blog's inspiration but Moping with Intent to Gawk is a bit wordy and I'm tired of typing it.
Please cast your vote in the handy, online survey and the winning words will appear here by Thursday or Friday. 

Pancake's House (see clip)
Spaceheater (think slang for ray gun, not portable heating unit)
Some of the Sudden (I can't possibly comment on all of the sudden)
Moping With Intent to Gawk (tried and true but change is good)

I personally am leaning towards PH but the decision lies in your hands.
Expect the same surly insights and fuzzy photographs cuz the game won't change, just the name. Maybe.
Thank you America and Happy Birthday.
