Quote of the Damn Day: Mick Jagger

While trying to publicize "Stones in Exile," a documentary about the making of the Rolling Stones' 1972 album, "Exile on Main Street":

"We were young, good-looking and stupid then. Now we're just stupid."

[I know what Mick means. I'm dumber than fuck now, too. You lose brain cells and shit when you get old, especially if you do a lot of drugs and drink. If I teach your dumb asses nothing else, let it be this! But whatever, ignorance is fucking bliss, and that means your stress level goes way the fuck down. I could care less about most things going on in the world these days. Whatever is my favorite word now.

For fucking example: Oil spill? What oil spill? I'll be dead soon. I could give a fuck. Whatever.

(Just don't let the fucking cable go out while I'm watching The Real Housewives of New Jersey! That, I care about A LOT.)

Listen up youngsters, or don't. I could give a shit. If I wanted damn kids, I'd fucking well have had the little bastards. SB doesn't have time to be your font of wisdom, so don't idolize me. I work a damn full-time job, take care of seven cats and a diarrhetic dog, and have an over-sexed Viking boyfriend (okay, it's ME who's oversexed). My plate is full!]

You know what sucks the most about getting old? Hang overs hurt sooo bad now.

Dish,
I hear you, girl.

Check out the mirror in the photo--who is that taking the picture? Mick and Keith have been ridden hard and put up wet.

I beg to differ with Sir Mick. The Stones were never cute. They may have been young at one point, but they were never, ever cute. They should have stopped after Exile. They haven't done anything relevant or worthwhile since. As for these so-called new Exile tracks, If it wasn't worthe releasing on Exile back then, it's not worth hearing now. Bill Wyman got it right when he quit 20 years ago. Time to hang it up, lads. No one wants to see the Steel Wheelchairs Tour, sponsored by Depends.

Sorry, Ms. Bastard-Beloved. You can't help being a font of wisdom.

michelle said...

That's Mick in the mirror. I'd know that scrawny beaded chest anywhere.

Like it or not, SB, you are a fucking fountain of wisdom

xoxoxo

I love this post, I promise I'll try not to idolize you. I wish I could stop giving a shit, I believe ignorance IS bliss, I just have to get some of it. I'm getting dumber every day, it sucks so bad to get old.
I was almost an english major, but switched to geography because it was so much cooler, and have even poorer job prospects after graduation. I can smell a typo or grammatical error from far away. Sadly now, my arthritic knuckles hate to type and I make many inexcusable errors that look like stupid typos, but they're just my fingers ahead of my brain.
Whatever.
Never change, OK? I love you just the way you are.
And yes, great picture and hangovers are a bitch these days. I have to watch my drinking which really pisses me off. sigh.

Sarcastic Bastard said...

Tom,
I'm with you, babe. Definitely not cute--in Mick's case--sexy maybe. Maybe.

Yes, they do need to quit. I think that shit is becoming embarrassing.

Love,

SB

Ms. Moon & Michelle,
Thank you veddy much. I guess it's a burden I must bear. Laugh.

Sarcastic Bastard said...

Mel,
And SB loves you to bits. Thanks for reading my crap and for your sweet comment.

Have a terrific weekend. I am SOFA KING glad it's Friday. I cannot tell you.

Christina Lindsay said...

Dear SB, I love this picture! That's definitely Mick in the mirror taking it. I think that Mick was cute and definitely sexy... I would! Sending love and hope you have great weather, the forecast is hot in London xx

Mick was never good looking.

Sarcastic Bastard said...

Christina,
I never thought Mick was good looking, but yes, definitely sexy.

Stay cool, love. They are calling for hot here in Ohio, too, this week.

Love you.

Sarcastic Bastard said...

PF,
No, but he was sexy.

Love,

SB

Lori said...

Ah, Mick was so damn sexy.. He had that X factor, that undefinable something...Ignorance is bliss, most of the time. Glad you have an over sexed Viking who can match your oversexed self.
