A Moment of Poker and Fatherhood Zen

I never read Fatherhood by Bill Cosby, but I'm fairly certain it does not contain the following sentence, spoken while playing NLHE online and holding your 7-week-old daughter:

"Tell ya what--I'm gonna play to my blind, and then we'll change your diaper."

It's a different generation, Cos.


My iTunes library has 4147 songs, and the following five songs comprise my entire Las Vegas playlist. It goes without saying that I'll need to raid the iTunes Music store for more selections. At the very least, I need to find some Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra. And maybe some Celine Dion and Barry Manilow. OK, not so much those last two.

Lucky Too by Bob Neuwirth (Sung by Nick Stokes in the Tarantino-directed CSI)
Viva Las Vegas by Dead Kennedys
That Was Crazy Game of Poker by Of A Revolution
Baby Got Back by Richard Cheese (Lounge Act)
40 Miles to Vegas by Southern Culture on the Skids

Not sure if you're into it, but "The Ace of Spades" by Motorhead might quallify.

Nice. Even if you're not into Motorhead, Ace of Spades is a classic song.

Of course, now I find myself picturing Norman Chad singing along, since "the Ace of Spades is the prettiest card in the deck."

I have Sinatra and Dino cds you can load directly into your iTunes library; tons of Barry Manilow should you also decide to go in that direction.
