5/4/07 Show - Rain

Last night, I did a show where all the songs had to do with rain in some way. This morning, I am drinking coffee trying to think of what to say about that show about rain. What is rain? Rain comes from clouds. Clouds are our enemies, yet me need rain to survive. Why would clouds, our enemies, want to help us then? The answer is simple. Clouds are stupid. If you've ever argued with a cloud, you'd know this. Clouds think we don't like rain. We do bitch about probably more often than we don't. We refer to rain as bad weather. Of course we also know that we need it but that's really a much more boring thing to talk about than say, how it totally fucked your hair for the day. The plants however, NEVER bitch about rain. They realize that they will die without it and they don't have any hair or any reason to drive. They are also our friends and don't want to to let the clouds in on the real truth.

Rain has inspired a lot of great music too. Clouds don't even listen to music though. I told you! They're so lame! But if you want to listen to some of that music, please download this mp3 via the link:
