# Sometimes I want to kill, kill #

# times I want to kill, kill #

# times I want to kill, kill #

Too soon to say how this will affect

an already unstable situation

in the middle-

# If when one of us is dead #

# When I die #

Listening to Rockin Johnny's'

all vinyl afternoon

on CL 97.3.

It's a crisp bright day

here in the hammer.

Looks like spring

is right around the corner.

This one by The Jive Five

is going out to all of you

counting down the hours

till quitting time.

# Tick-tock #

# listen to the clock #

# Tick-tock #

# listen to the clock #

# What time is it? #

# I've just got to know #

# What time is it? #

# It's 5:
00 #

# Three more hours to go #

# till I hold her #

# in my arms #

# and tell her #

I got it.

I got the feeling.

I can taste it.

I got it.

I got it.

I got the feeling,

got the feeling.

I feel it.

Okay, okay, okay, okay.

"Weapon of Mass Destruction

in the fifth race. "

Weapon of Mass Destruction

in the fifth.

Weapon of Mass Destruction

in the fifth.

Weapon of Mass Destruction

in the fifth.

Don't waste it.

Don't waste it

on anything stupid.

I got that feeling.

I got the feeling.

I got the feeling.

F*** are you staring at?

Should I piss?

No, don't piss.

I got the feeling.

I got the feel-

careful, don't step on any

f***ing cracks, man.

What you lookin' at?

Don't f***ing look at me,

you bad luck cocksucker.

Hi, there.

Can I get a scratch off

for there?

Ten bones.

Thank you.

# Tick-tock #

# Listen to the clock #

# What time is it? #

# It's 7:
00 #

Give me something.

Give me something.

Ah, cocksucker!

F***in', f***, oh, f***.

Yeah, the f***in' store

was cursed.

Should have just gone

to the f***in' track.

# The moment in #

If there's a taxi coming,

I go to the track.

Oh, yes, yes, f***ing A.

Oh, yes, yeah!

F***ing A, I still got it.

I still got the feeling.

You cocksucker!

Ah, cocksucker.

Oh, cocksucker.


Ah, cocksucker.


What a f***in' day.

God damn it.


Hey, hold that cab!

The Jive Five.

Hold that cab!

Wait, please!

Hold that cab!


Wait, just-

ah, f***!

Ah, f***!

Oh, yeah, now you see me.

Great, so thanks for that,

you f***ing bad luck old lady.

F***ing had to live just

long enough to kill the feeling.

God damn it.

A f***ing conspiracy

or something.

Ah, sh*t.

Oh, f***.

Get in the car, Andy.


He's still following me, okay.

Oh, hey, Reuben.

Hey, where the hell

did you come from?

Get in the car, Andy.

Get in the car.


Reuben, I swear to God, man,

I was this f***ing close

to having your money.

I-I totally had the feeling.

Put that cigarette

out of my car, Andy.




I thought you-

you'd retired or something.

Hey, did you go on vacation?

You look like you got some sun,

lost a little weight.

Look, I swear to God.

I was this f***ing close, Reuben.

But then some f***ing old

bad luck lady f***ing cursed me

and killed the feeling.

What's that?

Is that Cleo?


Why do you have my Cleo?


I get it.

You're gonna hurt my poor,

defenseless little cat

just 'cause

I owe you a little money?

In the meantime-

What are you doing?

The f***'s it

look like I'm doing?

I'm getting

my f***ing cat.

Get back in your seat.


I said get back in your seat, Andy.

How's my favorite kitty?



Are you f***ing crazy?

Punch me in the f***ing ear,


F*** this sh*t.

What the f***

is the matter with you?

Why are you doing this?

Shut up

and I'll tell you.

You know what?

Reuben, you've gone

f***ing crazy.

I said shut up, Andy.

Ow, God.

Shut the f*** up!

You shut the f*** up!


Stop hitting me!


I'm trying to be

a nice guy here.

Now, listen, Andy.

You're gonna die today.

Come on.


F*** balls!



Now, there's five other guys

who wanted to do this job,

but I said that I'd handle it.

You want to know why?


I wanted to give you a chance

to prepare, to make peace.

Anybody else, you'd already have

a bullet in your head.

You understand?

I got sh*t to do.

Now, I've got

a meeting at 3:

I have to be

somewhere else at 3:00.

So that's how much time

you've got.

But if you reach

for that door again,

I'll do it now,

I swear it.

All right?

I'm a f***ing retard.

I'm trying to be a nice guy.

Oh, yeah,

thank you very much, Reuben.

You're super swell.

You're welcome.


what do you want to do, Andy?

And I suggest you make good use

of this time.

I don't know.

I-I can't think.

I got to take a piss.

You can take a piss

when you're dead.

I got to piss now,


I've been holding it in

for, like, a f***ing hour.

I will go in here if you want.

Do you have, like, a cup

or a bottle or something

for me to pee into?

Wait there.

Come on, then.

Don't try anything stupid.

Go on that post there.

What if I got some money?

I could always sell my TV set.

TV's not worth 68 grand, Andy.

It's 68 now?


Don't be looking at my dick.

Well, f***, could you

turn around, please?

You're really making me

very nervous.

Go on.

What if I got ten grand?

Well, I'd take the ten grand

and shoot you anyway.


I got 60 bones in my pocket.

We'll go to the casino,

play some high stakes slots.

It's not about

the money anymore, Andy.

It's about you

going around town,

bragging about how

you're not gonna pay people.

It's about you going around,

making fun of the way

one of those people looks.

Well, he's-

he's got a f***ing-

Yeah, he's got a harelip,

and guess what.

He doesn't like people who

owe him large amounts of money

calling him

Mr. Funny Mouth.

Now, are you gonna piss or what?

I can't.

I'm having trouble here.

Could you make, like,

a waterfall sound?


Just like Niagara Falls,

just go-

It'll help me go.

Andy, you've got three seconds

before I shoot

your f***ing dick off.

Okay, okay,

here we go.

Oh, there we go.

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph.



Let's go.


This is the sort of

f***ing luck I have.

I smell like

a f***ing hobo right now.

Get in the f***ing car.

Now, put your seat belt on

and stop dicking around, Andy.


Ah, such a classic

track to hear on the station

that plays all your favorites,

CL 97.3.

Up next, we're jumping ahead to 1970

with Lighthouse

and One Fine Morning.

# One fine morning, girl, I wake up #

What are you doing?

The f***'s it look like I'm doing?

I already told you no.

What do you mean, no?

I already told you,

you can't smoke.

Now, put it out.

What, are you f***ing kidding me?

I don't want to breathe that crap.

I'll roll the window down.

Didn't you smoke for, like,

20 f***ing years, Reuben?

Yeah, and then I realized

it was disgusting.

Now, put it out.

So we're just gonna sit here,

driving around all day?

They just got some

polar bears at the zoo.

We could go to the art gallery,

check out some paintings.

Anything you want, Andy.

You just figure it out

and let me know.

It's hard to think
