Monday music (a day late): "Liposuction"

Continuing the DaVinci's Notebook theme, here's a very 1990s song about liposuction, which is a triumph of rhyming. My favorite is this verse:
If your waist line is a'surgin'
And in need of some reversion
And your overall weight dispersion's
Gettin' on the verge of perversion
I'm encouraging an excursion
To go searchin' for a surgeon
And get your emergency purgin' of the burgeonin' fat emergin' from your chin!

Hilarious stuff....

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Rewatch: "The Homecoming"

Richard Beymer! Frank Langella! Kira and O'Brien engaging in a daring rescue! A hero of the Bajoran resistance with feet of clay! Quark branded by extremists! The second season of the DS9 Rewatch commences with "The Homecoming."

An excerpt:
And throughout it all, we have Sisko once again being the rock at the center of everything. One of the things I like about Sisko is that he can bring order to chaos when it’s required of him, but can also be pretty damned chaotic when it’s called for. For this storyline, it’s the former that’s needed, and Avery Brooks is magnificent, navigating the treacherous waters of Kira’s provocative mission, Bajoran politics, Cardassian politics, Li’s reluctance, and even his son’s burgeoning love life. (As always, the scenes between the two Siskos sparkle.) Also, I just love the fact that he doesn’t drop everything to talk to Kira, but takes the time to finish his conversation with Jake, gets his breakfast, sits down and starts eating, and then asks Kira what she wants.
