Welcome once again to Blog d’Elisson’s Friday Random Ten, the weekly feature in which I post a selection of Choice Cuts spewed out at random by the iPod d’Elisson.

What’s on the box? Let’s check it out:
  1. The Ascent of Stan - Ben Folds

  2. Detachable Penis - King Missile III

    This gem comes our way through the kind offices of Dax Montana.

    I woke up this morning with a bad hangover, and my penis was missing again. This happens all the time. It’s detachable. This comes in handy a lot of the time. I can leave it home when I think it’s going to get me in trouble, or I can rent it out when I don’t need it. But now and then I go to a party, get drunk, and the next morning I can’t for the life of me remember what I did with it. First I looked around my apartment and I couldn’t find it, so I called up the place where the party was; they hadn’t seen it either. I asked them to check the medicine cabinet ’cause for some reason, I leave it there sometimes, but not this time. So I told them if it pops up to let me know. I called a few people who were at the party, but they were no help either. I was starting to get desperate. I really don’t like being without my penis for too long. It makes me feel like less of a man and I really hate to have to sit down every time I take a leak. After a few hours of searching the house and calling everyone I could think of, I was starting to get very depressed, so I went to the Kiev and had breakfast. Then as I walked down Second Avenue toward St. Mark’s Place, where all those people sell used books and other junk on the street, I saw my penis lying on a blanket next to a broken toaster oven. Some guy was selling it. I had to buy it off him. He wanted 22 bucks, but I talked him down to 17. I took it home, washed it off, and put it back on. I was happy again. Complete. People sometimes tell me I should get it permanently attached, but I don’t know. Even though sometimes it’s a pain in the ass, I like having a detachable penis.

  3. My Head Is My Only House Unless It Rains - Captain Beefheart

    I’ll let a train be my feet
    If it’s too far to walk to you
    If a train don’t go there I’ll get a jet or a bus
    Because I’m going to find you
    You’re going to see me shadow soon around you
    And my head is my only house unless it rains

    I walk the meadow plains
    Water deserts are my eyes until I find you
    I won’t sleep until I find you
    I won’t eat until I find you
    My heart won’t beat until
    I wrap my arms around you

    My arms are just two things in the way
    Until I can wrap them around you
    You can make my sad song happy
    Make a bad world good
    I can feel you out there moving
    You’re mine, I know I’ll find you
    And my head is my only house until I’ve found you

    I hate to have other people hear me sing this song
    If this reaches you before I do
    Follow it to “I love you”
    That’s where I’ll find you
    And my head is my only house until I find you

  4. Noviy God (live) - Leningrad

  5. Birmingham - Randy Newman

    Got a wife got a family
    Earn my livin’ with my hand
    I’m a roller in a steel mill
    In downtown Birmingham

    My daddy was a barber
    And a most unsightly man
    He was born in Tuscaloosa
    But he died right here in Birmingham

    Birmingham Birmingham
    The greatest city in Alabam’
    You can travel ’cross this entire land
    But there’s no place like Birmingham

    Got a wife named Mary
    But she’s called Marie
    We live in a three room house
    With a pepper tree
    And I work all day in the factory
    That’s all right with me

    Got a big black dog
    And his name is Dan
    Who lives in my backyard in Birmingham
    He is the meanest dog in Alabam’
    Get ’em Dan
