this morning here at hq, i dared intern steve to eat peanuts although i know he is deathly allergic to them. knowing that he aims to please, he ate the peanuts anyway. his throat closed up, and i just laughed, and laughed. after 6 hours at the hospital we are finally back safe and sound.
one band of merry men that frustrates the hell outta me is spoon. sure, they put out the minor classic girls can tell, but how about some consistency, guys. is that too much to ask? i want to love you long time, i really, really do. there are absolute glimpses of absolute greatness on each record, but then shit that just falls flat. i know, i know, what the fuck am i doing to change the world? not much, sadly. i will keep half heartedly loving you guys, but please dont make me end up feeling like one legged man in an ass kicking contest.
here is the first in a 5 part series of spoon rarities, demos, outtakes.
by the way, people. if you have not heard springsteen’s seeger sessions disc, you need to like yesterday. it’s absolutely fantastic. it is definitely his best work in years.
