i admit that it is stuck in there now! thanks a lot moi! but nice haiku- you are a master of sort of mysterious haikus...not really sure about them but nevertheless they flow very well.

WHAT will you wear to boxer's NYE party?

K9: Sorry about the ear worm :o) We're expecting a huge snowstorm NYE, so I'm going with one of those Teutonic/East Indian/Russian Steppe Princess gowns from Rodarte's Fall 2010 collection: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IMOhaWDpAls Complete with leggings and shoes. You?

I love the photo and will need to do some work to figure out song. Still, cool Haiku.

That's a wild picture and good haiku. I sleuthed out the son. "Sister Christian" by Ghey Ranger. Believe it or not, my source called them a "Hard Rock" band.

Now I know "motoring" means "whoring" in certain places.

Boxer: That's an artist named David Hochbaum. Found his work a few months ago when I Googled photo construction.

Fishy: If you were in high school, college, or your local dance club anywhere in or around 1984, you probably heard this song repeatedly. Over and over. And over again. Until you wanted to go screaming into the night.

Troll: Oh, come on. Did you see the HAIR on those guys? All that blow-dried curly awesomeness? I say, "All signs point to paving the way to . . . Poison."

Never heard of the song, the band, the artist . . . although something about the haiku and the art together made me think of "White Wedding."

moi said...

Czar: You know Billy Idol but not Night Ranger? Huh. You lucky ducky, never had "Sister Christian" assaulting your brain matter.

Oh great, now I won't get it out of my head all day either. But i didn't know that about motoring.
