oh no! it's a snake!

Behold! The awesome power of Flash!

That is all.

UPDATE: Links should work now. Like all my other experiences with flash, it's fascinating that I can do exactly what I'm supposed to do, in this case what I always do when posting links, but suddenly I get a bizarre "BURRRR BURRR DOES NOT COMPUTE" reaction from the computer. I hate technology sometimes.

interesting story about the Led Zepplin song:

One of the people I run sound with toured with Zep back in the day.

The monitor engineer at the time was a pretty wild dude who would buddy up with the band members and generally make an ass of himself.

At the time, Zep was at its peak and was doing the biggest shows they would do. They always lead with Immigrant Song, and it would be Robert Plant's big entrance to come down on a floating stage with the trademark "aaaaa aaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaa" as he descended down and joined the band. It was this monotor engineer's job to hand him his mic once he was in position, right before his cue.

One day before a show this monitor engineer went into the band bathroom to take a dump. He figured he was in there pretty much alone, but the band came back into the green room behind him and starting hanging out. Then they hear this guy straining, and out of nowhere he breaks out into immigrant song as loud as he can go. "Aaaaaaa aaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaa!! Aaaaaaa aaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaa!!"

He keeps at this for a few minutes, and when he finally finishes up, flushes and walks out, there's Plant and the rest of the band just falling out laughing.

That night when he handed Plant his mic right before he was supposed to hit the same note, Plant just about missed his cue because he broke out laughing again.

Good times.
