So, as some of you may know, the rail (now bike trail) bridge over the Connecticut River between Hadley and Northampton, Massachusetts, does actually have "I don't want the world. I just want your half." painted on it. A little part of me likes to believe that the bridge actually came first, and was the inspiration for the lyric, although I'm sure this is unlikely. Even if the causation is the other way, it's still fun to see, and I got to see it again this past weekend.

I was further amused to note that the bridge also now bears "All your base are belong to us" in much the same manner.

In our hearts, I'm sure the TMBG reference will outlive it.

I believe the bridge actually did come first. One of the Johns is originally from Lincoln -- thus the album "Lincoln" out of that general area.

Lincoln is way closer to Boston than it is Northampton, though. And I'm pretty sure the bridge was painted with that around 89 or 90, long after Lincoln was released. But hey, one never knows.

And apparently I know the fellow who decided to put the AYB on the bridge as well. Oh, Valley.
