Ridding Around Shinning

My iPod-to-car-stereo system has always been a little sketchy, and lately it's gone completely kaput. So I casually asked my dad if it was possible to dub CDs onto cassette tapes with our stereo yesterday, and, dedicated dad and experienced tapemaker that he is, by making me three proffesional-grade tapes with the music of my choice:

Abbey Road/Rocky Horror Picture Show
Creedence Clearwater Revival/Ghostface Killah

As if that embarassment of riches weren't enough, my dad says he'll make me some more tommorow while the system is still hooked up. The question is, what should I put on them?

Well, what use is a blog if not to solve a dilemma like this? Keep in mind that these tapes' primary purpose will be for rollin' in the Lincoln.

Also: First KB meet of the season this thursday. You know what that means: We need a team name. Now the choice of a KB team name is much more important than most people realize. The name is how you remember your team (Sans Coulouttes, Stuck On Burma, Death Eaters--all good times), it's what you get to hear every time you buzz in, and it can often serve to define the team to a certain extent (Death Eaters, I'm pointing in your direction.)

So what should we call the kuehn/mohs/richard/walker/voelker cabal? It can't be too tame (ham,) nor too lame (su do coup detat), but it also can't go over certain boundries of good taste, as set by Pritschett (i.e., Autoerotic Asphyxiation would probably be a no-go).

I'd say Star Boyz, but we have a little too much X to do that name proper. And while Skull Squadron is also a winner, it would feel wrong to have that name without Holbrook on the team.

Allow me to summarize: I'm stumped. I want to have at least a couple of ideas so this thing isn't decided over cookies and slushy apple juice like the last three have been.

something extraordinarily lame and childish to provoke much humiliation in the other teams.

The Jedi Knights
The Minnesota Vikings
The Green Bay Packers
The Spy Kids
The Power Rangers

all quite viable.

We're leaning towards Test Tube Babies right now, but I thing Jedi Knights could work well.

The Sith Lords--Even Better!

You are less than 3 katie walkers?

Yes, I'd say that's an accurate estimate.
