Dear Diary —

Last night I dreamt about land and money and primary education. Somewhere in there danjite tried to sell me a very tricked out low-rider. It was a lime green 1964 Impala with a hydraulic kit to lift the body off the frame. I wound up in a New Orleans bordello which was heavily decorated with Socialist Realist murals of the age of steam railroads. I was in a dining room with a hooker who looked remarkably like Anjelica Houston, along with six or seven other patrons. We were having a sort of Mad Hatter's Tea Party with the makings of Caesar salad, which we were preparing rhythmically to the sounds of "Rasputin." The Boney M version of that song. I missed the eggs when they went round on the lazy Susan.

My moral dilemma is, should I be ashamed that I recognized which release of "Rasputin" was playing?

Oh, those Russians!

Silly me--I didn't even know someone other than Boney M. had sung that song. Now the question is, which of the Boney M. versions was it: the Night Flight to Venus version or the Greatest Hits album version?

Night Flight to Venus, of course.

And I thought there was a house/club remix of "Rasputin" out there?

My daughter just played me a version by some Scandanavian metal outfit, which was interesting in the odd ways a Scandanavian metal outfit can be (clue, Lordi are normal . . .) Only when the chorus arrived, behind the typically Scandavian metal outfit lead singer/growler there was a second singer that like the late Pavarotti giving it his absolute all. Odd.
