The Pirate debate continues
A few days ago I posted a letter that I sent to Boundless.org concerning an article J. Budziszewski wrote concerning downloading music on the net. Me not being one to just let things rest (why, when you can beat it into the ground? ), posted some thoughts on Jason Steffens' Antioch Road weblog.

I'm fighting for my intellectual life here people. Yes, I concede that's not much, but it's all I've got in terms of the grey matter department.

By the way, I'm happy I ran into Jason's weblog. I'm now subscribed to his RSS feed.

The best Barney song ever
Michael Knott has always been a favorite artist of mine. A while back I found a link from his web site to Knottchords.com that had quite a few MP3s of live Michael Knott songs. Tonight I saw that I had some of those songs on my hard drive so I played them and was reminded of this very funny Barney song. Amazingly, it doesn't bash our formerly favorite purple target.

Listen to the song and read the lyrics below. Very funny stuff!

I was sitting in the kitchen getting depressed
Had a hand full of bills from the IRS
My little girl hugged me and it gave me a chill
When she said, “Barney could pay those bills”

My wife and I got in a big fight
So I had to sleep on the couch that night
My little girl hugged me so I wouldn't feel bad
She said, “Barney loves you Dad”

Now my eyes started watering and I almost died
And my heart started breaking when I looked in her eyes
I picked up my guitar to sing her a tune
She said, “Barney sings better than you”

Barney, Barney, Barney
Oh I need a Barney

So I went out drinking later that night
And I drank so fast I couldn't see right
My wandering eyes past by the front door
And in walks some big weird purple dinosaur - Barney

He started dancing, he put on a show
And when he was done he recapped it all
I said, “Hey big guy, please leave me alone”
And then I got so drunk he had to drive me home

Now the government came to my house the next morning
And they took me away without any warning
They said, “You're guilty of evasion - how do you plea?”
I just looked them in the eyes and said, “Barney”

Barney, Barney, Barney
Oh I need a Barney
