Considerations relating to my life goal to own (as Jay-Z put it) "so many watches I need eight arms"

  • I do not, in fact, have eight arms
  • Wearing more than one watch at once is corny
  • That many watches would require coordination of watch with outfit
  • Upkeep concerns (setting them all to the same time, keeping them wound, etc.)
  • Cost would inevitably be high
  • Storage is a minor headache
  • The wisdom of pursuing a goal simply because a middle-aged rapper mentioned it once is questionable at best

Elton John songs explained

  • Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting - In this song, Elton imagines that if he were to ever get in a fight, Saturday night would be the ideal time for it.
  • Candle in the Wind - The title is a metaphor for Marilyn Monroe's untimely death.
  • Rocket Man (I Think It's Going to Be a Long, Long Time) - It's sometimes easier just to steal David Bowie's ideas.
  • The Bitch is Back - Elton is the bitch.
  • Can You Feel the Love Tonight - Michael Eisner writes some very large checks.
  • Island Girl - This song is about a prostitute.
