Guns and alcohol

Gurf Morlix, "One More Second", off his brilliant album Last Exit to Happyland.

-- Badtux the Music Penguin


  1. I'm a music idiot and couldn't make out the words he was singing on my computer but I approve of guns.

    I bought a new Ruger pistol about a month ago, not a gun nut so I haven't shot it yet but I'll get around to it some day.

    In America we see them as protection, in Europe they see them as something bad guys have to kill with, interesting.

    But if someone is wanting to kill you it pays to have your own gun just to even the playing field. .

  2. Dude, you need to listen to the song. A guy is drunk, gets angry at someone else, has a gun, pulls it, pulls the trigger. It's all about, "just one more second, if I'd thought about what I was doing for one more second, then I wouldn't have given up my soul." No gun, though, and he wouldn't have killed that other person...

    There's a *reason* why guns are banned where alcohol is sold in virtually every state of the union, even those where gun rights are a big deal. 'Nuff said.
