It has a Phil Bebbington vibe to it, no? The film is Over the Edge, if you were wondering.

thank you. and spot on. that’s got Phil written all over it.
Just so long as they don’t go messing with Once Upon a Time in the West again. (Mental tag: clusterlore.)
Also, Arcade Fire should hire Phil.
Love the tune and you guys are very kind. Struggling with seeing things these days – working on it.
It would be nice, maybe, if you could lie down on the warm grass alongside the La Azteca dude and shield your eyes with a hat. Sometimes you start to see things again that way. Maybe that is what he was doing. Or maybe just resting. Either way.
Oh! Sheila when I was younger and wore baseball caps more often, I would, on occasion, lay back and place the hat over my face and then be distracted by the way the world looked through the little circular vent holes. I think Phil should try it and maybe he could see things again.
Are baseball hats available in England? Or sombreros? That could be the root of the problem, right there.
Fair point. Do those hats those guys outside buckingham palace wear have holes in them?
Hell yeah, this ain’t North Korea. We have coke and everything here.
If I have a problem I’m sure I could steal one off of an American tourist or tell them a story about how I was close to Princess Diana and get it as a trade.
“In exchange for your hat I’ll tell you how I lived in the same country as Princess Diana.”
“Hell yeah, this ain’t North Korea.” I spewed.
I suggest you do so tout de suite.
Notice how I threw some French in there to sound more continental.
That didn’t go unnoticed, Cindy.
Something like that, Michael. Don’t think I mentioned it on here, but, when I was staying in Alpine, TX last February, one of the waitresses at breakfast asked me where I was from and when I told her England she said
“Tell me, did you know Princess Diana?”
I told her unfortunately not (that was a mistake, I should have lied to make her happy) to which she replied,
“She was such a nice lady.”
England is kind of like North Korea, Phil. Y’all have that National Health, which is socialist, which is pretty much communism under another name.
You mean, you didn’t know Princess Diana?
Sheila, I don’t care as long as I can turn up and get treated for free at the hospital and doctor – just call me Phil Jong Il!
Cindy, unfortunately not. One of my partners in the police was a royal protection driver and was her driver on a number of occasions (fortunately not in a Parisian tunnel!)
I did help protect the pope on his 1981 visit to England, he still dies in the end. There’s gratitude for you!
Phil Jong Il. Has a ring to it.
Phil Jong Il, guardin’ the pope.
Rockin’ in the free world.
