One And A Half Minutes (or, Wherein I Shamlessly Steal Content From Someone I Permalinked To)


From BlogJazz, who was the winner of last month's title contest, which reminds me that it's time for this month's contest: post a quote (or two) that mentions the month November in the comments, and the one I like the best gets their site permalinked at the top of my list of rotating permalinks (over there on the left).


If only you could use the whole damn song:

Tom Waits

No shadow
No stars
No moon
No care
It only believes
In a pile of dead leaves
And a moon
That's the color of bone

No prayers for November
To linger longer
Stick your spoon in the wall
We'll slaughter them all

November has tied me
To an old dead tree
Get word to April
To rescue me
November's cold chain

Made of wet boots and rain
And shiny black ravens
On chimney smoke lanes
November seems odd
You're my firing squad

With my hair slicked back
With carrion shellac
With the blood from a pheasant
And the bone from a hare

Tied to the branches
Of a roebuck stag
Left to wave in the timber
Like a buck shot flag

Go away you rainsnout
Go away, blow your brains out

Two or three to choose from. I prefer "Go away, blow your brains out -- November" but that's the mood I'm in right now.


Forget that artsy crap; try:

" 'Cause nothin' lasts forever,
Even cold November rain."

GnR baby!

Or Elvis Costello: "We braved the cold November air and the undertaker's curses.
Saying "Take me to the Follies Bergere and please don't spare the hearses."

Make this a November to Remember?

See you in November?

She wore blue November?

You can't always get November, but if you try some time, you'll find you get December?

"November is national runaway prevention month."

National Runaway Switchboard

Ooops. I misquoted. It's not national.

Please to remember
the fifth of November;
gunpowder, treason, and plot.

Hey, you didn't use any of our ideas! You are a total lam-o!
