On this day in 1966, the FBI announced that,  after an extensive investigation into the famous song "Louie Louie" (the Kingsmen version), that they were unable to understand the lyrics, saying that they are incomprehensible.

The investigation of the song, which the FBI spent over two years working on, uncovered very little relevant information. The lengthy investigative process included repeated listenings of the song at different speeds, and interviews with the song’s writer, Richard Berry. The study could find no evidence of obscenity. In fact, the bureau came to the conclusion that the song was “unintelligible at any speed.”

The "Louie Louie" files make for quite the read: names have been blacked out and other sentences, and we have no way of ever knowing what was once written there. Made-up lyrics, actual lyrics, record label information, letters from concerned parents, and government forms were all attached to the file. All this work and money spent on investigating a silly song over what was rumoured to have had hidden vulgar lyrics. . . .

At least we know they listen to music just like the rest of us. Must have been a good gig

Take a look!
 
With one day left in the Insects Unlocked crowdfunded campaign for public domain media, we have set a goal not for money, but for participation. So far, 174 donors have supported the project. That's great!

But, we can do better. We'd like to make that 200 by the end of the day- even if your donation is just $1.

https://hornraiser.utexas.edu/project/54e79bbc14bdf7205ddd5ab7

Why? Well, $1 on its own helps, of course. But looking forward to when we begin seeking institutional grants for a permanent imaging center, the size of our small donor base will demonstrate that a public domain resource will be widely used. Think of your small donation as a vote for open entomology images.

Who has Affordable Space Adventures? The game looks cool. I heard it's fun, and it gets difficult. Any other input?

I haven't gotten to 200cc yet. Mostly play on 50cc with a younger participant.

Looks cool, though!

People asking to steal something are funny.

+Rich Fisher ever had someone ask if they could "steal" something? Instead of just asking to take it? I hear the malicious verb used with the kindest intentions, and I wonder why it's chosen.

The Zarf
Introduction
"Nothing will work unless you do." - Maya Angelou
I'm a dad, an Austinite, an Army veteran, and a writer.

Some about me:

Zarfism (zarf-ism) noun.
The product of a profoundly puerile pondering;
stemming from seriously silly speculation.

I created The Zarf (with my mom!) in the spring of 2013. It's an entertainment site of comics, interviews, reviews, and a medley of other content. I create zarfisms (comics, interviews, medleys, and reviews). You might even find some Zarflings!
