Girl U Want
 
The other morning over yogurt I think, Devon and I were watching Devo in 1978 doing Can't Get No Satisfaction on SNL.  It looked like it must have felt really ferocious to move that tight, to lean forward with mechanical fangs out -- what a ROBO-REBEL gang!  And somehow Devo makes you feel like they'd let you join?  

By the way, I sometimes think Mark Mothersbaugh seems to have a lot figured out.  I like all his jobs.  I like where he seems to keep his mind.  I bet when he acquired Ray Scott's Electronium (a way early & wild synth), he probably knew he wouldn't wake up the next day feeling like all his problems were solved.  That wasn't why he put the Electronium in his house.


Anyhow, this Devo song was Devon's idea after the ultrasound tech pointed at the screen and said we were having a girl.  We secretly wanted a girl.  It was a great idea -- I love this song.
