Look at all the little fishies

I frequently tend to get a recurring line of text or song that runs through my head over and over and over. Today's gift is from a rerun of The Profiler. One of the agents had been kidnapped and was being brainwashed to drown himself or somebody else. He was drugged, strapped to a table, and had headphones placed on his ears. They played the sounds of the ocean along with some new age hippy crap that made me want to barf on my Slayer concert T; in the foreground was a soothing man's voice saying "Look at all the little fishies at the bottom of the sea. Who would like to join them? Who would like to join them? Who..." And now that's stuck in my head.

I don't know why or how my brain chooses what to repeat, but I'm sure it's all good. Well, I'm off to find a large body of water. Because I would like to join them. I would like to join them. I would like...

That is so funny! I had a stupid song stuck in my head all day yesterday -It stuck with me no mtter what I did (it was a "Schoolhouse Rock" jingle from a tv show from the late 1970's in America)It drove me nuts! Stupid, unruly brain!! Who knows - indeed!
By the way - I love the changes to your site!

i get songs, poem lines, movie lines, and random words stuck in my head....damn annoying...

"hierarchy... hi - rarc - hy..."

High Desert Diva said...

Schoolhouse Rock Rocks!

...but the stuff you were listening to sounds pretty annoying.

That's very weird. But it's probably why the sentence got stuck in your mind. Gone swimming yet?

There's a character in a book I'm currently reading about evil trying to take over the world (called "Swan Song") and the evil character likes to sing: "Here we go 'round the mulberry bush, the mulberry bush, the mulberry bush"...so I've had that stuk in my head for the past WEEK.

And make sure you wear your floaties when you go for that swim. You wouldn't want to leave your cool new template with no one to fill in the blank spaces now, would you??? ;)

i can't focus on what you write with that sound file you have playign on the background. it creeps me out and i can't focus.

Think about that.

grant,

In my post today, I stole one of your lines. It was a really crappy post, and then I placed your line at the end and it made everything better. Sort of like garnishing with parsley. Not a lot of vitamins, but it looks so darned good.

I still have nightmares about that voice saying "Look at all the little bloggers on the internet. Would you like to join them?"

Well it's better than "Five Little Monkeys Jumping On The Bed". THAT is what is going through my head these days. Prolly cos' I read it to Madison 7 or 8 times each evening ....

A sailor went to sea, sea, sea. To see what he could see, see, see. But all that he could see, see. see, was the bottom of the deep blue sea, sea, sea...

I'm linking you just because I like the new template so much...

Video X said...

had to come because of the "weasels chomping on my privates" quote at Leesa's.

"I'd like to be...under the sea...but I'd probably need a phone..."

i have no idea who sings that, but it's now stuck in my head.

water always makes me feel good...i think you really have something with this whole being a fish thing.

wendy - I loved Schoolhouse Rock.

fatty - the problem for me is that the repeating stuff is usually violent or self-destructive. The last time it was "Kick 'em in the face!"

hdd - not as annoying as the time I had Helter Skelter (just those words, not the whole song) stuck on repeat.

pbs - not yet. I prefer death by booze. I think I'll swim in Maker's Mark.

pq - somehow I think "fishies" is scarier than "mulberry bush" although it's not as good as "There's a weasel chomping on my privates."

annush - at least it got you to comment. :)

leesa - thanks. I liked your non-crappy post without it, but weasel references always enhance one's writing.

joe - look at all the fishies underneath...you got me going again.

patti_cake - monkeys... fish... monkeyfish. Now there's a scary thought.

geekdarling - so, in other words you hate the writing but the template is worth visiting? :p

video - as Seinfeld said, fish are so thin because they eat fish. However, I've been eating 50 pounds of fish a day and haven't lost an ounce.

Stephanie said...

i think it just might happen to all of us at one point or another!!

Grant said...

rick - I don't step on crack - I smoke it.

stephanie - I hope you mean the repeating phrase thing rather than joining the fishies. :p

Libélula said...

Happens to me all the time and for I don't know what reason, it's always a really stupid jingle or song that I hate

Liz said...

I want to join the fishees too.
