The GoGoBots - "Fortune Cookie Nookie" Live At The Europe Gyro 1999

This song was inspired by finding something on my walk home one day.  At the time, I lived in an apartment complex behind a strip mall, so I would walk down an alley behind the strip mall on my way home.  One day, someone had thrown a videocassette box of a porno on the ground.  I think there was a video store in the strip mall.  It was a paper box, so I picked it up and took it home and put it in the recycling if I remember correctly.  Its name stuck with me though and resulted in the title of this song, the lyrics of which I composed by saving my fortunes from various fortune cookies for a few weeks.  Some of the lyrics even include the lucky numbers from the back of the fortunes.  There wasn't much to the song obviously given its origins, but the riffs were fun to play.
