Thoughts On The Dead

Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

Beam Me Up, Mickey

One of these days, Mickey and Bill Walton are going to have a Dead shirt-off, and I don’t think both of them will survive the ordeal.


In Donald Trump’s dreams, his hands are the size of Bill Walton’s. (Holy shit, look at those paws.)


What’s the doohickey? Bottom right on the near side of the Beam. It looks like a coin slot. Does the Beam take quarters? If someone is playing the Beam and you put your quarter down, do you get next?


Is Mickey about to perform? Or–and this is my guess–has he begun wearing those sweatbands at all times?


  1. Coming out of space at Alpine, Mickey stayed on the Beam through a few minutes of Hard Rain’s gonna fall.

    It’s pretty nice, the beam can make a hellish racket when he starts beating on it, but it can be played nicely..

    Oteil teasing “favorite things” is nice as well.

  2. I have that same sweatshirt Bill W has and I have to say, it’s mighty comfy.

    Bill is not that tall – he is standing on a step ladder.
