Super Squirrel's Mobile Command Post

Recommended Posts

I can't believe how many people want me to go for the retro thing.  8 track player, disco lights, wall to wall shag carpeting.  It's just too funny.   happy097.gif  Funnier still I don't get the joke.  I don't see what makes it disco worthy. :blink: :eyebrow: :/ 

 

Awww...BB is just wanting to relive his Grateful Dead Days through you, Dave. :rofl:

Truckin' - got my chips cashed in

Keep Truckin - like the doodah man

Together - more or less in line

Just keep Truckin on

 

Arrows of neon and flashing marquees out on Main Street

Chicago, New York, Detroit it's all on the same street

Your typical city involved in a typical daydream

Hang it up and see what tomorrow brings

 

 

Dallas - got a soft machine

Houston - too close to New Orleans

New York - got the ways and means

but just won't let you be

 

 

Most of the cats you meet on the street speak of True Love

Most of the time they're sittin and cryin at home

One of these days they know they gotta get goin

out of the door and down to the street all alone

 

 

Truckin - like the doodah man

once told me you got to play your hand

sometime - the cards ain't worth a dime

if you don't lay em down

 

 

Sometimes the light's all shining on me

Other times I can barely see

Lately it occurs to me

What a long strange trip it's been

 

 

What in the world ever became of sweet Jane?

She lost her sparkle, you know she isn't the same

Living on reds, vitamin C and cocaine

all a friend can say is "ain't it a shame"

 

 

Truckin' -- up to Buffalo

Been thinkin - you got to mellow slow

Takes time - you pick a place to go

and just keep Truckin on

~ I don't see a disco theme either. :smoke: It's a Mobile Command Post for heaven's sake.   :ninja: I see a high tech theme myself, with state of the art gadgets and gizmos. Little lights blinking inside... of COURSE you have to have one large red button that is labeled "emergency eject" or something just as mysterious... maybe "MCP self destruct" just for kicks. :P You need a green camo-colored phone underneath some glass labeled " Emergency Squirrel Phone." (that should raise some eyebrows...) :naughty:

Hey, I'm just suggesting he cover ALL the bases and possibilities. I honestly think an 8-track would make a modern high-tech system all that more impressive.... Blue Ray, HD, video cassette, Super-8, along with MP3, CD, reel-to-reel, cassette player, turntable, and 8-track....... now that's a system with capability.

~ Does anybody even have 8-track tapes anymore? :unsure: Those things were huge! LOL! happy061.gif You didn't even buy one unless the whole thing was good, because there was NO searching going on with that big ole thing! Remember how they'd start skipping? And you'd have to take a piece of folded up paper and stick underneath it? happy097.gif Yeah, Dave needs one of those things alright. :whistle: Isn't it amazing that now we can fit thousands of songs and even movies on something the size of keychain? 8| How did we come so far, so fast? :unsure: How did we go from being barely able to squeeze 12 songs on something bigger than a frizbee, to being able to put every song we've ever heard on something the size of a Ritz Cracker? :blink:

Yeah it use to be if you took 8 tracks with you you had to carry a suitcase for the others you wanted to listen to. Now you can take your music library with you in your pocket. But I still have my old vinyl also. They don't get played now but I may get the transfered to cd in digital quality sound yet.
