Bwuh?

Some readers might remember me confessing my secret love for Patio frozen burritos some time back.

For whatever reason, I thought about them tonight, and realized "Hey! Amazon sells groceries!"

So I typed in "Patio Frozen Burritos" and sat back. No dice. Some mondo bizarro returns on my query, though.

"Lesbian burritos" would be a great band name!

Ordering groceries online never appealed to me until about six months ago.

I like Cliff Bars. I know, I know. But I eat one most every morning with some juice or a soda. I had trouble finding the particular flavor I liked, and when I did find it I had to pay $2 each or more for them, which just wasn't acceptable. Sometimes they'd go on sale for $1/each and I'd buy all I could.

But one day I discovered that Amazon sells them on a subscription basis. Now every month a box of 24 of them gets shipped to my door after being charged to my credit card. Like magic. The cost ends up being just under what I'd be paying with tax here on the $1/each sales, and that's with free shipping.

I don't care for "other teamly burritos".

Your mileage may differ. Boy, at least there is something you can't get on Amazon.

Maybe the remaining Ramones can do a cover...

Apparently the most important thing to do in order that everyone know your band is "alternative" is to come up with the most Dada-esque possible band name, album name, and song title...

Dammit...now I want a taco.

I still don't understand the term "alternative" music. So far as I can tell, it refers simply to a band without a major recording contract. Except in those cases of bands that eventually get a major contract, in which case they keep the title.

Yeah, okay, I'm some sort of old fud, but it seems to me that a descriptor of a musical genre ought to refer to, oh, I dunno, characteristics of the music. The only shared characteristic of "alternative" bands is "my parents are dicks."

But that is more descriptive of their target demographic, and not of the bands themselves.

(Checks link) Um. I got nothing.

Yeah, I just sat there and blinked at the screen for a bit, figuring it might suddenly make sense.

But, nope, it just stayed weird.

Also, there's a closer Safeway to Braod Ripple.

@SB - the best band name (from my high school, 40+ years ago)
is The Styrofoam Chalice
(and, what Ancient Woodman said)

Dave Barry always finds the best band names (i.e., Rival Bat Dung Gatherers). But do any of these kids pay attention? Nooooo...

DaveFla said...

Clicked the 'play' button just now. How... ordinary. Not alternative to anything at all in particular.

Tam! I didn't think you swung that way! Actually, I'd be surprised if you swung any way at all, being a grumpy old spinster, and all.

-SB

It does roll off the tongue a little smoother than "The Angry Fuzzy Taco Munchers" and it's even catchier than "Indigo Girls".

A Brit-kid I knew in HS thought "patio" was pronounced like "Horatio" - with an "s". Paashio.

Back in the late 90s when I was stationed at Fort Hood, you could buy Patio burritos at the Commissary for oh-my-Gawd-cheap. The company First Sergeant had a "meal deal" of two of 'em and a Coke for a buck, and he still made mad money for the company slush fund (not the least from me...it was a hell of a lot cheaper than the Burger King across the street, and closer to boot).
