Shame we count join the countdown! How about a little number box on the index screen?!?

SL will say it will probably be me, writing pointlessly about Ron Sexsmith at 1am, but I'm away for a few days and may not be around for it. So I'll say:

Song title game
Los Lobos song title

My guess would be

Professor Plum
In the conservatory
With the lead piping.

I think DrSpooky should indulge himself and be the 100,000th poster and post about a site upgrade. Alternatively it will be MDM on the song titles thread posting a John Prine title.

Or perhaps Elvis himself will post a congratulatory note :lol:

We are now over 99,500 posts!!! It shouldn't be long now.

When will the odometer roll over?

Who will be driving?

What will they be saying, wearing, and/or listening to?

Will it occur quietly or will there be global meltdown as was expected for Y2K?

What? Take a closer look at the song title thread and rerank the posters and you'll quickly see that I am probably not in the top 5. Maybe 5, but I doubt it.

I think I have posted three Los Lobos titles. They are a great band.

But, to enhance your credulity, I will do my best to find a los lobos title and, eschewing sleep, wait with index finger hovering over the submit key at the magical minute.

Most likely poster = Who Shot Sam
Category = What are you Listening to Right Now?
Topic = Think of the most obscure recording that you can imagine, triple it, and raise it to a power of 10. That is the 100,000 post



....either that, or WSS, wake up you footy fans, something about a guy with lots of vowels in his last name heading in the winning goal against United, or some such deal
