To understand the title of this thread the linked video, please read on.

Back in the mid 80's while living in Nashville, Tennessee, I had the pleasure of being friends with Steve Eng, the man in the video. He's an author and poet. I'll speak of him in the present tense, for I fear if I search Google, I may learn of his passing and am not ready for that yet, because I've recently learned of another good friend of mine named Steve Bivins (Pass it On on Willie Nelson's Promiseland LP) has passed on.

One day in 1987, I was at the Nashville library downtown conducting research of what, I don't remember. Steve Eng was there, as he probably always was conducting research for some book he's writing. I asked him what he was doing there that day, whereupon he replied, "I'm looking for a Tennessee whore." I looked around the room and replies, "Well Steve, I think you're in the wrong place." He went on to explain that he was conducting research for a fellow author and friend, Ted P. Yeatman, for a book entitled "The Tennessee Wild West". It was to consist of all the people who came from the South, namely Tennessee, and went out West, making a name for themselves. The only character missing to make the book complete was that of some renown Tennessee harlot. Later, I did learn that such a women was found.

Steve Eng was also a songwriter, albeit an eccentric one. I had the pleasure of having him as a guess on many of my shows in Nashville. One song I'll always remember is, "You're Love is Just Like K-Mart, You Got Something for Everyone."

A few lyrics:

Your love is hot and heavy like a pizza home delivered to your door
After one bite, the customer cries for more (sung in a talking style)
If Linda Lovelace needed lessons, you could show her how it's done
You're Love is Just Like K-Mart, You Got Something for Everyone

(bridge)

This song needs a release
And...I...need...a...release...from...my...bodily...tensions (strung out and sung while he banged on his guitar)

Hope you enjoyed this post.

Did. Except for the video.

I am amazed by people who remember non-family by their first and last names like it was the normalest thing.

I struggle with remembering where I left my underpants at times. And I'm only like 12 (according to the bitcointalk-distortion).

The video was pretty sad.
