"Riding on the city of New Orleans
Illinois Central, Monday morning rail
Fifteen cars and fifteen restless riders
Three conductors and twenty-five sacks of mail

All along the southbound odyssey
The train pulled out at Kankakee
And rolls along past houses, farms and fields
Passin' trains that have no names
And freight yards full of old black men
And the graveyards of the rusted automobiles

Good morning, America
How are you?
Say don't you know me? I'm your native son
I'm the train they call the city of New Orleans
And I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done

Dealin' card games with the old men in the club car
Penny a point ain't no one keepin' score
Pass the paper bag that holds the bottle
Feel the wheels rumblin' 'neath the floor

And the sons of Pullman Porters
And the sons of engineers
Ride their father's magic carpet made of steel
Mothers with their babes asleep
Are rockin' to the gentle beat
And the rhythm of the rail is all they feel

Good morning, America
How are you?
Say don't you know me? I'm your native son
I'm the train they call the city of New Orleans
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done

Nighttime on the city of New Orleans
Changing cars in Memphis, Tennessee
Half way home, we'll be there by morning
Through the Mississippi darkness
Rolling down to the sea

But all the towns and people seem
To fade into a bad dream
And the steel rails still ain't heard the news
The conductor sings his songs again
The passengers will please refrain
This train has got the disappearing railroad blues

Good morning, America
How are you?
Say don't you know me? I'm your native son
I'm the train they call the city of New Orleans
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done"

Miss you dad.
Thank you for everything.

"...not my style at all, but that was what I was aiming for: If they think you're crude, go technical; if they think you're technical, go crude. I'm a very technical boy. So I decided to get as crude as possible. These days, thought, you have to be pretty technical before you can even aspire to crudeness." "Burning Chrome" by William Gibson

Driving along on the plastic dream 
Heart beats fast like a tiny machine
I am electro boy
I am electro girl
Skating along on the perspex scene 
Crystal moccasins, bionic cheese

I am electro boy

I am electro girl (@manunderstress gets it) #electroboy #naboo #vincenoir #howardmoon #onecaterpillarshort #mustachepistol

Metal Album or Hospital sign?

In case you were wondering which was stronger, a 2002 Toyota Camry rear quarter panel or one of @3randonmcdonald screens the answer is the latter. Removing the screen from my trunk to access my spare tire I lay the screen against the wheel well. When I jacked the front end up it must have slipped in. Didn't notice till I had out the old wheel and Jack away. Classic Brandon

Even the box it arrived in is awesome. Just need a few days off to sort through the parts tote and build the front wheel up and it will be ready. #bullittcargobike #bullitt #harryvslarry
