So, let's see what Grandma's got in her magic handbag today.
Oh, here's a good one: 35 cover versions of Joy Division's Love Will Tear Us Apart, one of my favorite songs ever. But who doesn't love this song? The author says that the two rules of indie rock music success are, "Rule #1: Put a hot girl on keyboard or bass; Rule #2: Cover Joy Division's Love Will Tear Us Apart." Sounds good to me. (Doug, have you considered that this may be your missing ingredient?)
Bonus points to these guys for taking it in the most unexpected direction: throat singing! Yay!
That reminds me: have I ever mentioned to you how much I loathe the Wiggles? Truly, I despise them with every inch of my being. I can tolerate the Doodlebops, I have no quarrel with Barney, but the fucking Wiggles must die. I can't explain what it is about them that sets me off -- maybe it's the primary colors, or the songs that blithely dismiss how yucky vegetables can be, or maybe just the overwhelming soulless white-boy-ness of it all (and that goes double for Jeff.) But I hate hate hate the Wiggles and want them to just fuck off already. Which is why I thoroughly enjoyed this. If only it were true.
What? You want a toy, too? Greedy little bastards, aren't you? Okay, okay, Grandma's got a toy for you. Here, this should keep you busy for a while. While you're up, dear, would you mind bringing Grandma her flask of "medicine"? And if I'm asleep when you come back in, try not to wake me up. In fact, I might just go upstairs until your parents get home -- heh, me and Grandpa might go "take a nap!" Heh! Know what I mean? "Take a nap?" Damn kids. |
