The video will now start 20 seconds into the video. This only works when linking to a YouTube video, this does not work when embedding a video.

Candle Wicks, Marvels of Engineering

I’m surprised at how many people have never heard of this song or the band Fear. For some unknown reason the lyrics just popped into my head today while working so I sent a portion of the lyrics to my wife over IM. All I got back was “WTF?” So I sent part of the lyrics to my friend Frakes and all I got back was “well good for you”

So I guess I’m the only one who listened to some 80’s punk?
