Nouns, Schmouns...  
HalfshellHusband tried to convince me last night that the orthodontist wanted to pull out some of our son's molars. That made no sense—they'd been part of the orthodontia, and you don't randomly remove molars. Plus, they were done coming in. Wisdom teeth are a different story. People remove those all the—

HalfshellHusband: "Wisdom teeth, yes. Wait, what did I say before?"

I can't remember if our daughter is supposed to get all of hers out too (and we're just waiting for them to get closer to the surface), or whether only some are coming out. She had two teeth pulled for braces, which still kind of puzzles me. I had four bicuspids removed when I was a kid, because in those days, all the teeth that "lined up" in the bite went if there wasn't enough room. I don't see how having more on the top or bottom could be good, but that's what she wound up with. Possibly, two wisdom teeth will be added as well.

We might get some rain tomorrow, which would be welcome despite leading to garage-biking for me. It would have been a wonderful weather for a ride today, but my boss has scheduled his weekly meeting right in my early-afternoon bicycling window. I regret it every Wednesday. :(

Friday, though... that has outdoor possibilities. *fingers crossed*

Questions I want answered without endless dinking around on Google: who wrote the theme song to XYZ (eg., "Battle Creek" and "Backstrom" at the moment), and are those real songs I can buy somewhere? If not, WHY not? The answer to the first is Brandan Calhoon and apparently "No." The second? Still looking. :(

Brandon Calhoun has quite a few albums up on iTunes; the song from Battle Creek ("Lost to be Found") will probably be on the next one he releases, maybe? The release date may depend on the tv licensing, so may be delayed until the series hits DVD. The opening credit sequence is posted on YouTube though.

Best guess I could find for the Backstrom Opening titles is Reverend Horton Heat, I Can't Surf but it doesn't sound right to me, though it could be the same artist.

Ooh, thanks for the Backstrom pointers!

There's a bluesy sound to that theme that I really like, and I'm hoping the "Battle Creek" theme gets developed into a full song and released. It's very brash but also a little bluesy and interesting.

Reverend Horton Heat. What an excellent name!

I'd actually never heard of the group before doing the search. They are quite catchy though!

Still piling through Reverend Horton Heat.

I don't think it's "I Can't Surf," but it is definitely someone's surferbilly-style song. This is the right genre, for sure.

Boy, there's everything in that band's sound from country to rockabilly to even more modern stuff. They knew how to change with the times!
