"I wanna remind you that [today] is the first of the month and it's customary to say 'rabbit, rabbit' before you say anything else. Think about that, write yourself a note. Alright, have a nice time."

How 'bout some high-quality formerly-local punk rock to start 2009 off with? Yes.

Ahh, Jawbreaker; now and forever the sound of The Mission...

Jawbreaker -- "Jinx Removing"
from 24 Hour Revenge Therapy LP/CD, and Live 4/30/96 LP/CD

Blew twelve and kissed the thirteenth finger.
"Rabbit, rabbit," on the first.
I hold my breath.

Did tricks I hoped you wouldn't notice.
A superstitious hyperrealist.
I'll make you mine.
