Thanks, Steve. I thank you. My I-Pod thanks you. I love Chinese Vacation, but since this song is #'d "3" does this mean it's the 3rd track on your next album? Hope so, hope so, I hope so!

Words could never express how much I love you.

Posted by: Troy Lee Wells at December 11, 2004 12:15 AM

Steve, Awesome song! Very Beautiful song! I liked it the first time listening to it... and I have it burned to cd to take in the car and play on the stereo now!

Nice to see you using the internet to get your music out to "the people"! I cant see why music stations aren't playing your chinese vacation song! That song really rocks! Well written, with lots of puns in it... I love the parts about Noodle and poodle - ATm card and Pin... rhyming.. and Taiwan being a puppet. Anyway... Merry Christmas... Thanks for the song! What a great early Christmas present!

Looking fwd to seeing you at the New years party at the Belly up! Cant think of a better way to bring in the new year with great music and DRINKING!! ;-)

Speaking of Sinking Submarines and the Holidays, what's the word on Answering Machine 2?

I was a good girl this year, ask Santa he'll tell you.

here's hoping...

Posted by: carence at December 11, 2004 5:19 PM

Looking at that picture, I would check your figgy pudding for dioxins!

hope you win the revote, Mr. Poltschenko!

great song, too.

"pack your bags cause we're going on a guilt-trip" was the best thing i've ever heard. thank you for all the catholic references, here and everywhere. people never treat catholicism like it is a cultural thing, and it is! and you do. so kudos, you make me feel a little less alone in this big bad world...

Well, Merry Merry Christmas! I wish you a very great life 'cause you deserve it.
Much love,

Happy Christmas to you and yours Steve . That was a great song , defintely was a goosebumpy feeling. Looking forward to The big New Years celebration , see you then. Love julie and chico

Posted by: jewels at December 14, 2004 10:33 PM

It's amazing that the song is so good that nobody has mentioned what a freak Steve looks like in this picture. It's very scary.


Posted by: Carence at December 15, 2004 6:20 AM

i was just trying to pretend it wasn't there.


Posted by: weiner at December 15, 2004 7:50 AM

I mentioned he looked a little like Victor Poltschenko on the dioxin diet.

I liked the song alot, although an Xmas song about being trapped inside a submarine makes me feel....



Posted by: Ramon at December 15, 2004 12:34 PM

Carence doesn't read my wordlets anymore. :(

I said he looks like Lemony Snicket -- right up there near the top.. see?
But I think Ramon may be on to something.... Steve, have you been eating those little treats in the rat poison box again? And did you still that tiny guitar from the dead rat?

Posted by: tussy at December 17, 2004 7:04 AM

still, Dana? Methinks there's too much rum in your eggnog. :p

Posted by: Frag at December 17, 2004 8:53 AM

Thanks for the new song. Very emotion and thought provoking as usual. Oh, crap, I didn't mean an insult by "as usual". Thanks for always sharing a piece of yourself with your posted stories, songs, etc. Looking forward to New Year's. Good tie-one-on's to you and yours.
