there can be only one

OK, I am pleased to announce that a new song has graduated into full rotation. Since first being played by the Sexy Accident, "All Surface" has demonstrated exemplary leadership, integrity, charisma and community awareness. Before serving as a Sexy Accident song, "All Surface" was a twinkle in my mind's eye and a whisp on the collective unconscious. Now, "All Surface" has proven itself worthy of the mega-standards of The Sexy Accident by exhibiting unique and unusual tonality, an evocative mood, nifty guitar work, and lyrics of a certain sophistication. When you next hear it, please welcome "All Surface" with open ears and congratulate it on its promotion.

Oh, "All Surface" asked me to share its lyrics with you, such that you might recognize it better when you come across it by the water cooler.

All Surface

float away, winter
give a rest to your test
climb aboard, summer
a gentle breeze stirs the trees

stay a while, lover
make me feel like I'm real
turn your face to me
let me know before you go

why they don't know me
like they should know me
like they said they would
and I don't mean it
and they can't see it
like I wish they could

did you sail, sister
around the world, clever girl
as you span oceans
locked by land, not my plan

and I don't know me
like I should know me
like I thought I would
and they don't mean it
and I can't see it
like I wish I could

I'm tired
of being here
fading to one
with no purpose
all surface
coming undone

did you hear, father
they called my bluff, I'm not so tough
cut my chest open
found a plan, but not the man

and they don't know me
like they should know me
like they said they would
and I don't mean it
and they can't see it
like I wish they could

I'm tired
of being here
fading to one
with no purpose
all surface
coming undone

I'm tired
of being here
fading to one
with no purpose
all surface
coming undone

In other news, "I Just Need My Car" has turned out to be a bit of a scamp. In its most recent HR evaluation, "I Just Need my Car" was called out for attendance issues, an awkward and overly-abrupt key change, violating the dress code, unsportsmanlike conduct and generally just giving us all a lot of sass. As a result, "I Just Need My Car" has been promoted to President, North Supply division and you will probably never see it again.

We'll have more information for you at our upcoming all-hands meeting, scheduled for whenever I flippin' feel like it. Thanks for all that you do. There are cookies over there on the counter. And some bourbon.

El Presidente,

Maybe our *look* needs to be business casual?

Maybe so. Seriously - we need to think about it a little bit. At least a little!
