Some Things About Me

Ted Berberian photography

Listen Here!!!

I like the word belligerent
It rhymes with refrigerant
Iím OK at lying
Iím scared of dying
I like eating food
I love to be nude
These are some things about me you should know
You should fucking know these things about me
I like to watch others
I love unwed mothers
Iím convinced the worldís ending
I like twisting and bending
I have furry ears
I write songs about queers
These are some things about me you should know
You should fucking know these things about me
Iím mean and Iím kind
Iím losing my mind
I donít sleep that much
I use humor as a crutch
I think Iím a fraud
Not sure I believe in god
These are some things about me you should know
You should fucking know these things about me
I like chocolate cake
I give but I take
Iíve been to Hong Kong
Iíll sell you a song
I live in hotels
I donít take any pills
I quit drinking booze
Itís not any big news
I act really glad
Even though Iím real sad sometimes
These are some things about me you should know
You should fucking know these things about me

i am not convinced the world is ending, but i think it will as we know it today. like control top panty hose, a cosmetic fix isn't going to do the trick. what if it IS too late? apathy will not become you, will you become apathetic? not in this lifetime babe, that's one more thing i fucking know about you.

You know what you should fucking know about me?

How much I fucking love you.

Oh. And sassy tazzy's right. Ted's gonna kill you.

Yeah, I think I already knew most of those things about you. I can identify w/ more than a few of them, too. Great minds think alike?

How good it must feel to express yourself with a song. If more people could do this we wouldn't have people going off the deep end.....

Amigo... Thanks for posting the picture. I will let the credit to the wrong photographer slide since I love you so much. It is not like we were in bed making mad passionate love and you screamed out someone elses name. That would get me pissed... Not that we are lovers, I am just saying... cause if we were I would be missing you right about now since it has been 6 weeks since I last looked into your eyes... But I don't miss your eyes sorry. I do crave a nice long slow dance or a few minutes of cuddling with one of your songs playing in the backgroung. That is about as close to being intimate with you as I want to get... I still love you though... madly... Any chance I could convince you to come back to Oregon next weekend? I will be there taking pictures.... sure could use a dose of Poltz.... Or better let me be your merch guy for the up coming down under shows. I can take pictures of you playing with the dingos. later dude! -ted

I like this poem; it's very funny! Do you remember me, Steve? We met on the Hugh Thompson Show in the beginning of Oct. You sang the song about Mari Frank. I was w. a friend named Sparkle. Remember???
