The TMBG video contest
"Dr. Sy Fly"
he'll see you now diagnose with compound eyes
multiply the problem and his name is dr. sy fly
he'll see what's wrong and he'll be what's wrong
as he twitches his proboscis and he'll tell you your prognosis
he's going to have to amputate
he's going to chop off all that you got
yank out the stuff inside of you
after which he'll play nine holes of golf
his phone rings it's an emergency
someone needs their brain replaced with a potato salad sandwich
a buzzer sounds as he tries to take out cavity sam's
wrenched ankle and he accidentally kills him
dr. sy fly is deep in thought
motioning to the nurse at his side
hand him the saw hand him the drill
sponge all the moisture off of his brow

Working on a lot of I Like Fun songs, 
but not sure which are going to be in the 
show immediately. Also prepping some 
Wicked Little Critta, Subliminal, Your Racist Friend, 
End of the Tour, Nothing’s Going to 
Change My Clothes, My Evil Twin, 
Bangs, and Dig My Grave.  
Trying to set up a Quiet Storm section of
 the show where Marty is playing these 
electronic drums, JL is on accordion 
and clarinets, me on acoustic, 
and Curt Ramm on trumpet. 
Songs we are kicking around include 
A Self Called Nowhere, Moles, 
The Famous Polka, Tippecanoe and 
Tyler Too and a bunch of other 
small-format comparable songs. Kind of 
challenging doing something so quiet. 
Hope we can hold people's attention!
Going fast. Don't delay!
