Stay Off The Tracks, By Order Of The God Of Death

Apparently, Mumbai has a fairly sizable problem with people getting themselves killed by crossing train tracks where they ought not. Sizable to the tune of about seven people a day, according to some estimates. There also seems to be an issue with people keeping themselves on the trains, as around 650 people were said to …

Gangsta’s Paradise, The 1920s Postmodern Jukebox Edition

I wasn’t sure I was going to post this while I was listening to it, but my mind keeps coming back to it as I look at other things, so here ya go. I’m generally a sucker for a comically or impressively rearranged rap song, and this one definitely hits the mark on both counts …

Trains, NO Brains And Late Automobiles

There have been plenty of times when I’ve been worried about being late for a bus or a train. Thankfully I haven’t missed one yet, but it’s come close a couple of times and can get pretty tense. In a million years, though, I would not have thought of this as a solution. Being late …

So Here’s A Bad Idea That Won’t Make Anything Any Better
