Spotted: punk lyrics carved into the sidewalk, RIP warm weather

It's super cold out there. So it's kind of funny that I stumbled upon this carved into the sidewalk a bit ago near 13th and Spring: it reads "We've been livin' a thrill in the blink of an eye, but baby, we too are running out of time /  End of summer 2010" with some hearts and a cassette tape. And it's true, we're out of time, warm weather is long gone.

I wasn't familiar with the words, but it sounded like lyrics, and sure enough they're from the song "Running Out of Time" by Dead Moon, a punk band active from the 80s to 2000s. It's not bad: kind of a Cramps meets the Replacements vibe for me.

I always like seeing funny stuff carved into the sidewalk -- I wonder if these folks were also behind the waffle-eating dinosaur I spotted a few years ago.
