Sheryl Crow - If It Makes You Happy

I've been long, a long way from here
Put on a poncho, played for mosquitos,
And drank til I was thirsty again
We went searching through thrift store jungles
Found Geronimo's rifle, Marilyn's shampoo*
And Benny Goodman's corset and pen

Well, o.k. I made this up
I promised you I'd never give up

[Chorus:]
If it makes you happy
It can't be that bad
If it makes you happy
Then why the hell are you so sad

You get down, real low down
You listen to Coltrane, derail your own train
Well who hasn't been there before?
I come round, around the hard way
Bring you comics in bed, scrape the mold off the bread
And serve you french toast again

Well, o.k. I still get stoned
I'm not the kind of girl you'd take home

[Chorus]

We've been far, far away from here
Put on a poncho, played for mosquitos
And everywhere in between
Well, o.k. we get along
So what if right now everything's wrong?

[Chorus]

I saw her live at the Backyard a few years back, good show. Lots of lesbians.

Superman or Batman? That's a tough question.

Batman Begins was an awesome movie! I wonder if Bryan Singer is up to the incredibly tough challenge of making Superman Returns at least as good, if not better, than this last Batman movie.

As far as characters go, I'd definitely go with Superman. Even though I've never really been a big DC fan (Marvel is typically better in my opinion,) Superman has always been my favorite superhero.

Batman is a great character, but he's no superhero... he has no super-powers. He's simply a pissed-off, rich guy who has a lot of sophisticated gadets. The only leeway I can give Batman on being a true superhero is the fact that he has the heart and will of a superhero. So I'll give him that!

As far as the actors who play Superman and Batman... not sure. Christian Bale is a well established actor... have seen him for years! Yes, he's completely hot! Brandon Routh is new to me... I don't know how he'll do (hopefully great!) And yes, he's hot too. I'll have to wait and see the movie to know which is better.
