Let’s wind down a bit.

So, work today was particularly taxing and shitty thanks to someone totally useless being assigned to our team. He’s a picture-perfect lesson on how a single saboteur can derail even the biggest projects. DAMN today sucked.

So I’m not particularly in the mood or state-of-mind to write that much.

But there’s a near-perfect song for this out there. Which also is a near-perfect song in itself.
Sit through the intro. Wait until 01:36 in and listen to one of the best riffs in the history of rock and roll.

Dire Straits – Money for Nothing [Brothers in Arms] | 1985 | Rock

[expand title=”Lyrics”]Now look at them yo-yo’s that’s the way you do it
You play the guitar on the MTV
That ain’t workin’ that’s the way you do it
Money for nothin’ and chicks for free
Now that ain’t workin’ that’s the way you do it
Lemme tell ya them guys ain’t dumb
Maybe get a blister on your little finger
Maybe get a blister on your thumb

We gotta install microwave ovens
Custom kitchen deliveries
We gotta move these refrigerators
We gotta move these colour TV’s

See the little faggot with the earring and the makeup
Yeah buddy that’s his own hair
That little faggot got his own jet airplane
That little faggot he’s a millionaire

We gotta install microwave ovens
Custom kitchens deliveries
We gotta move these refrigerators
We gotta move these colour TV’s

I shoulda learned to play the guitar
I shoulda learned to play them drums
Look at that mama, she got it stickin’ in the camera
Man we could have some fun
And he’s up there, what’s that? Hawaiian noises?
Bangin’ on the bongoes like a chimpanzee
That ain’t workin’ that’s the way you do it
Get your money for nothin’ get your chicks for free

We gotta install microwave ovens
Custom kitchen deliveries
We gotta move these refrigerators
We gotta move these colour TV’s, Lord

Now that ain’t workin’ that’s the way you do it
You play the guitar on the MTV
That ain’t workin’ that’s the way you do it
Money for nothin’ and your chicks for free
Money for nothin’ and chicks for free[/expand]

Basically, what I want to say today:
1) Work sucked because of a single stupid motherfucker kicking it all off-track.
2) Listen to this song.
3) Buy “Brothers in Amrs” if you don’t yet have it. Money for Nothing, Brothers in Arms, Walk of Life, Why Worry… All those are on it. It’s a magnificent album. Get it. It’s worth the price of admission.
