"Someone told me it's all happening at the zoo..."

Gratuitous "look what I did yesterday" post, but it was a balmy 78 degrees here, an absolutely gorgeous day to visit our fantastic Cheyenne Mountain Zoo for the first time. These pics I took of the animals made me laugh. Thought they might make you smile too. Loosely correlated tunes at the end.

"At The Zoo" - Simon & Garfunkel

"Wild World" (Cat Stevens cover) - The Format

"Tiger Man" - Elvis Presley

"Lions" - Pete Yorn (from the Westerns EP)

"Monkey" - Bush

Oh, I love that zoo... They have the feeding area up high so you can get up close and personal with the giraffes, right? I seem to remember being licked by one of them. Ugh.

That giraffe shot is excellent. Almost comical, cartoonish!

Thanks groovyf! I took about 15 pics of the giraffes, they are so amazing close-up, HUUUUGE brown eyes, soft skin, these long purple tongues. Best part of our zoo.

Also recommended: Flaming Lips, "Christmas at the Zoo"; Don McLean: "On the Amazon" (a vocabulary bestiary) and NRBQ: "Down at the Zoo"

-- I freakin' love The Format. And "Rain"! Ever since I lost my copy of Past Masters I've wanted to hear that again!
