If You Can Read This
it means that I didn't wake up while it was still dark out to put up a real post on the 29er Çrew site.
The good news (aside from the fact that you don't have to read 500 + words of nonsensical literary puke this morning) is that we still don't have a winner for the Figure Out What in The Hell Inspired This Photo Montage Contest. (All contest details here.) But, I ask you this...does anyone truly win in a contest where the grand prize is a "Mix Tape" of Thom Parsons rock? Although I do promise it won't be that bad. I was only influenced heavily by the music of just ONE of my famous musician parents...the good one; not the total crap one.
Yes, I was raised by two dads, and yes they were both famous musicians, but our house was divided. My sister and I showed allegiance to my dad, Gram (Parsons that is) while my brothers sided with our other dad...Alan (Parsons of course). Alan-Dad was always whisking my siblings off to England to work on his "project." Ooh, I was sooo jealous. Whatever. I had a great time hanging out with Gram-Dad. Well, let me just say that I had a lot of "freedom" when I was hanging out with Gram-Dad. While he was all hopped up on LSD, off in the desert looking for UFOs I could drink as much soda pop as I wanted and stay up watching Jonny Quest. It was awesome.
So, on the contest...
things we've established:
- The painting or "artistic bed" for the piece is by painter Lucian Freud. The name "Lucian Freud is not the answer I'm looking for.
- The head of the figure in none other than famous Spanish cyclist Miguel Indurain. His name, or part of it factors into the answer.
- Indurain is holding a whale that is known by two common names, one of which is part of the answer.
- The answer is the title of a song, of which I have ever so slightly misinterpreted the lyrics. (OK, I've just about written backwards on your forehead now.)
P.S. - Gee, I wonder what the UPS guy left on my porch (for three hours in my not-entirely-un-sketchy neighborhood, after he faked my signature, the dick).
