Fall On Me
Song by R.E.M.

There's a problem, feathers, iron
Bargain buildings, weights and pulleys
Feathers hit the ground
Before the weight can leave the air

Buy the sky and sell the sky
And tell the sky, and tell the sky
Fall on me (what is it up in the air for)
Fall on me (if it's there for long)
Fall on me (it's over, it's over me)

There's the progress
We have found a way to talk around the problem
Building towers
Foresight isn't anything at all

Buy the sky and sell the sky
And bleed the sky and tell the sky
Fall on me (what is it up in the air for)
Fall on me (if it's there for long)
Fall on me (it's over, it's over me)
Fall on me
(Well I would keep it above but then it wouldn't be sky any more)
(So if I send it to you you've got to promise to keep it home)

... but I admit its all nostalgia

I cant think of how many times I thought "I will just go to Radio Shack and get that cable/adapter/thingy I need"

Now I just use Amazon prime like everyone else or a dozen others. Their prices always sucked because they knew they were the only choice you had.

It used to be the coolest store at the mall. Realistic audio gear, CB radios and all things cool and very geeky.

I'll miss you Radio Shack. It was a good run. You just couldn't stay relavent long enough. R. I. P.

.... there is a group of engineers ...

- Flop sweating their asses off
- Furiously searching their email for that ass-covering memo to their boss about the pricey "redundant this" or "redundant that" that the boss was too cheap to get
- Wondering if there is enough alcohol on earth for what they will need later tonight
